- This article is about the show. For the theme song, see The Plumed Punisher: Warrior of Neo Twilight Realm (music).
The Plumed Punisher: Warrior of Neo Twilight Realm is a television show produced in the Kingdom of Khura'in. The show was inspired by the legend of Lady Kee'ra and borrows heavily from the American television show The Steel Samurai: Warrior of Neo Olde Tokyo, with its theme song being almost identical to that of The Steel Samurai, albeit with the taiko drums in the introduction replaced with traditional Khura'inese instruments. The show's heroine, the Plumed Punisher, is based on Lady Kee'ra, while the main villain is based on Dhurke Sahdmadhi, leader of the Defiant Dragons rebel group. Rayfa Padma Khura'in was also portrayed as a damsel in distress in at least one episode. As such, the show is used as a propaganda piece by the kingdom to demonize the Defiant Dragons.
Among the fans of the show are Rayfa herself, Maya Fey, and Beh'leeb Inmee, although both defense attorney Phoenix Wright and Chief Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth compared it unfavorably to The Steel Samurai, and were even more dismayed by the fact that the people of Khura'in, including the Defiant Dragons, believe it to be an original show.
Despite its popularity, Queen Ga'ran had banned its broadcast sometime after Dhurke Sahdmadhi hijacked the airwaves to deliver his message. She later stated that she had deemed it to contain content unsuitable for the kingdom, and also felt that people would be disappointed if they saw that the real Rayfa was physically unlike the actress who played her in the program.
Name[edit | edit source]
- In the Japanese version of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice, the show is called "冥界戦士トリサマン" (Meikai Senshi Torisaman), which translates literally as "Underworld Warrior Torisaman".

- Rayfa: I thought the villainous leader of the Defiant Dragons was here with his minions... ...because it was, you know, "time for a revolution."
Apollo: I think you've been watching too much of that TV show.
Ga'ran: I have already banned its broadcast for containing content unsuitable for our kingdom. Besides, the actress playing Rayfa looked nothing like her. I can't have my subjects feeling so... disappointed when they see the real Rayfa.
