Main tracks[]

Triumphant Return - Miles Edgeworth[]

Triumphant Return - Franziska von Karma[]

  • "Triumphant Return - Franziska von Karma" (大いなる復活 ~狩魔 冥) is a theme used for Franziska von Karma and a few times for Miles Edgeworth. It first plays in Farewell, My Turnabout when Edgeworth returns from his absence. A version without the intro also plays during a few scenes with Edgeworth later on in the episode. Later, it plays when Franziska von Karma arrives in court with the items from Shelly de Killer's hideout, and makes a reappearance in Bridge to the Turnabout when she shows up as the guest prosecutor during the first trial. It plays in Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth whenever she reappears during various cases, but also serves as the theme song for her father, Manfred von Karma, in Turnabout Reminiscence. In The Inherited Turnabout it again serves as Manfred von Karma's theme. The theme itself is a higher-pitched version of "Triumphant Return ~ Miles Edgeworth" with a different intro. It appears on the Gyakuten Saiban 1 and 2 Original Soundtrack and Gyakuten Saiban Sound BOX albums as track 32 on the second disc.
