1. General Information

This is a walkthrough for the Nintendo Dual Screen (NDS) 
game called Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth. 
It's a spinoff of the Phoenix Wright series, starring the 
ever-popular cravat-wearing prosecutor Miles Edgeworth.

You can contact me at [email protected], if 
you want to put my guide on your website or something 
like that.

This guide is separated by save points. Every time you 
get a chance to save your game, I start a new section of 
the guide. I made up my own names for the sections, 
because the game itself gives unhelpful names like 
"Middle � Part Two" to the various sections. 

2. Video Walkthrough

For those of you who are interested, I have made a video 
walkthrough for this game. You can find them at the 
following links.

Case Four:

Case Five:

3. Case One: Turnabout Visitor

Case One begins with a murder in Miles Edgeworth's 
office, early in the morning.

Edgeworth enters his office about fifty minutes later, 
having just returned from a month-long trip overseas. He 
is surprised to find the door unlocked, and even more 
surprised to find a dead body in his room.

It seems the killer is still in the room, as a shadowy 
figure pulls a gun on Edgeworth and leaves without saying 
much, or doing much besides shooting the picture frame on 
the wall.

3a. Edgeworth's Office

The case begins with the police examining the scene of 
the crime. Edgeworth's friend Detective Gumshoe bursts 
into the room, ready to investigate.

Investigation takes two forms in this game. The first is 
very simple: you look around and examine things in order 
to find evidence. This evidence is added to the Court 
Record...I mean, Edgeworth's organizer. You can look at 
this evidence whenever you want by pressing the R button 
(or tapping "organizer" on the bottom screen). Examining 
evidence sometimes leads to finding out new information. 
Profiles of all the characters are kept in the organizer, 

The second form of investigation Edgeworth uses is Logic. 
You can examine Logic by pressing the L button (or 
tapping "Logic" on the bottom screen), and you can then 
connect different ideas through logic.

For example, in the conversation Edgeworth has with 
Gumshoe, two thoughts are added to the Logic function.

Crime Scene: Why did the murder occur in Edgeworth's 
Office Key: The only way to get into the locked office is 
by using the proper key.

Hit the Logic button and connect these two thoughts by 
selecting both thoughts, then hitting "connect" (or by 
pressing A twice, then Y). Edgeworth comes to the 
conclusion that the murder happened in the office for a 
reason; after all, it's rather difficult to get inside a 
locked room, so the killer and victim must have gone out 
of their way to enter Edgeworth's office.

Edgeworth then asks the next logical question: why did 
the killer enter his room? This is added to Logic.

Okay, that's enough Logic for now. Time to begin 
investigation! As Detective Gumshoe says, you can move 
around with the control pad and look at things with A (or 
you can use the bottom screen on the DS). At any time, 
you can tap the picture of Detective Gumshoe on the 
bottom screen to start a conversation with him.

You can examine various items in this room and talk to 
the police officers if you want. There are some fun 
things to look at, like the Steel Samurai figurine, King 
of Prosecutors trophy and flowers from Wendy Oldbag.

However, in order to advance the plot of the game, you 
need to look at the gun towards the bottom of the screen. 
Gumshoe recognizes it as the kind of gun that detectives 
use in this area. Edgeworth adds this to his Logic!

Examine the victim's body in the lower/right part of the 
screen. This leads to a close-up view of the crime scene. 
Tap the DS touch screen (or just use the control pad) to 
move the cursor over something, then press A to examine 
it. There are three things to examine.

You can examine the body to see the victim was shot in 
the abdomen. This information, along with the crime scene 
photo, is added to Edgeworth's organizer.

You can examine the files which are lying around. 
Apparently, the victim and the killer had some sort of a 
struggle. This information is added to Edgeworth's Logic.

Finally, you can examine the victim's wallet to learn 
that he is Buddy Faith, a detective. This is added to 
Edgeworth's Logic.

Edgeworth figures he has plenty of information now, so 
it's LOGIC TIME!!! Modus tollens, it's your time to 

Hit the Logic button and review the thoughts Edgeworth 

The Killer's Goal: What is it?
Disordered Files: There was a struggle in this room.
The Murder Weapon: A gun used by detectives.
The Victim: He was a detective.

Connect the gun with the murder weapon. If the victim was 
a detective, and the murder weapon is a gun that only 
detectives have...then it's logical to assume that the 
murder weapon belonged to the victim.

Gumshoe checks the body. The victim is wearing an empty 
gun holster. Looks like the gun was stolen from the 
victim, presumably during the struggle between the victim 
and killer.

The gun is then added to Edgeworth's organizer. He 
decides to take a closer look at it through the power of 
scientific investigation! Using the scroll wheels and the 
zoom in/out buttons, you can look at the weapon from all 
angles. Pretty handy!

Check the bullet holder thingy. Five out of six bullets 
are still in the gun, so that means there was only one 
shot fired. Edgeworth, of course, adds this information 
to his organizer.


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the gun.
Look at the victim's body for a close-up.
  Examine the body.
  Examine the files.
  Examine the wallet.
Logically connect the gun with the victim.
Examine the bullet chamber of the gun.


A new character arrives on the scene. Well, technically, 
he's not new. You saw him kill the victim in the opening 

He introduces himself as Jacques Portsman. He claims to 
be highly upset by the death of his friend Jim, and in a 
fit of anger, he accuses Edgeworth, then Gumshoe of being 
the true murderer. 

Edgeworth requests that everyone calm down. The 
investigation is still ongoing, so it is premature to 
jump to conclusions. Portsman agrees, compliments 
Edgeworth, and says it's a pleasure to work with him.

Portsman wants to say good-bye to his friend, so he 
busies himself around the body. One of the officers moves 
to take pictures, which is your cue to go to the 
upper/left part of the screen and examine the picture 

The picture frame was shot! We already knew that, though. 
Edgeworth notices a contradiction (which is a term that 
reminds our hero of a certain spiky-haired defense 
attorney). You are then challenged to find the 
contradiction yourself.

Move the cursor over the bullet hole. Hit the "deduce" 
button, then pick which piece of evidence has the 

You only have three pieces of evidence, one of which is 
your attorney's badge, so it's not too hard to figure out 
that you need to pick the gun. Only one shot was fired, 
right? Then why is it that there are two bullet holes--
one in the victim and one in the picture frame?

Edgeworth concludes that there could have been another 
gun at the scene of the crime, something which he adds to 
his Logical thoughts.

Gumshoe then notices the safe which was hidden behind the 
picture frame. All prosecutors' rooms are equipped with 
hidden, secret safes, but no one besides a prosecutor is 
supposed to know about this (otherwise, it wouldn't be 
much of a secret).

You then get to examine the safe. Look at the keypad to 
note that, unlike the rest of the safe, it is not dusty. 
The Forensics officer examines it and concludes the 
keypad was wiped clean of fingerprints recently. This is 
such important information that Edgeworth adds it to his 
organizer AND his Logic thoughts.

Logic time again! Edgeworth has four thoughts.

The Killer's Goal: What is it?
The Hidden Safe: Someone tried to open it recently.
Disordered Files: There was a struggle in this room.
A Second Gun: Does this exist?

Connect the killer's goal with the hidden safe to come to 
the conclusion that, perhaps, the killer wanted to steal 
something. Good, but we can make further deductions.

Motive: The killer wanted to steal something.
Disordered Files: There was a struggle in this room.
A Second Gun: Does this exist?

Connect the motive with the disordered files. Perhaps the 
files are disordered because the killer was searching for 
something to steal!

Eager to test this theory out, Gumshoe offers to put the 
files back in order in case some are missing. The files 
get put back in place, but something feels wrong...

Deduction time. Move the cursor over the bullet hole, 
then present the crime scene notes as contrary to it. As 
you can see, the bullet hole is far too close to the 
ground. Someone made a mistake somewhere.

The mistake was with the order of the files. Edgeworth 
doesn't keep them in numerical order, but if they are 
organized in numerical order...ah! That's better.

This means, oddly enough, that someone put the files in 
numerical order before the crime. So someone went through 
all the files both before and after the crime. This is 
added to Logic.

Investigation time is almost finished, folks! There's 
just one more thing to look at: the files in the 
lower/right part of the screen. They're covered in blood.

A closer look reveals that one of the files is missing. 
Edgeworth jots this down in his organizer. More 
importantly, however, the word "Gumshoe" is written on 
the files in blood, which makes the good detective look 
very suspicious.

Investigation complete!


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the picture frame.
   Deduce (ie. select) the bullet hole.
   Present the gun as contradictory to the bullet hole.
Examine the keypad.
Using logic, connect the safe with the unknown motive.
Using logic, connect the motive with the disordered 
Deduce, using the bullet hole.
Present the crime scene notes as contrary to the bullet 
Choose "the order of the files".
Examine the files in the lower/right.


Portsman then accuses Gumshoe of being the murderer. 
Edgeworth requests that Portsman clearly explain his 
argument, which's time for Cross-Examination!

You can choose to have Edgeworth explain cross-
examination or not. It's no different than cross-
examination in the Phoenix Wright games.

What happens is that the witness gives a testimony. If a 
statement contradicts something in Edgeworth's organizer, 
he can present it to point out the contradiction.

There are five things currently in Edgeworth's organizer: 
his prosecutor's badge, the crime scene notes, the 
victim's revolver, details about the safe, and the stolen 

You can also press any statement to get more information 
(and sometimes, new testimony).

Cross-Examination: Why Gumshoe Is The Killer

Jacques argues that Detective Gumshoe stole the victim's 
gun and shot him. Gumshoe tried to throw everyone off 
track by messing up the files. That's when he moved the 
body, and overlooked the fact that his name was written 
in blood on the files.

You want to present the stolen file as evidence at the 
statement about the victim's body hiding the files. As 
you can tell from looking at the shelf of files, the 
missing file was stolen AFTER someone wrote Gumshoe's 
name on the files in blood. Therefore, the victim's body 
did not really hide the files, as the murderer got a look 
at the files after the murder.

Portsman is impressed by Edgeworth's logic, and he agrees 
that Gumshoe is most likely not the killer. That's good 
news, but Portsman brings in another possible 
suspect...the only other person who had a key to 
Edgeworth's office...the security guard on watch tonight, 
Maggey Byrde!

Oh no! Not Maggey!

For those of you who don't know, Maggey was falsely 
accused of murder in Phoenix Wright: Justice for All AND 
Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations. It looks like 
her bad luck has followed her through to this game as 

Gumshoe is very upset about this because he kind of has a 
crush on Maggey, and he insists that HE is the murderer, 
in an attempt to clear her name. No one is fooled by 
this, however, and Portsman decides to explain why he 
suspects Maggey.

Cross-Examination: Why Maggey Is the Killer

Portsman claims that Maggey snuck into the room by using 
the master key to all the rooms. If Detective Gumshoe 
didn't open the door to the room, then she must have. On 
top of which, she knows Gumshoe. The killer knew Gumshoe, 
which is how he or she knew to frame him by writing a 
dying message on the files in blood.

The Master Key is added to the evidence.

Edgeworth suggests pressing some testimony, in case you 
haven't tried that already. Press the first statement 
about Maggey using the master key. Maggey says she 
couldn't have used the master key, but Portsman cuts her 
off, saying she's making things up.

Edgeworth is given the option of hearing Maggey out, or 
agreeing with Portsman. Hear what she has to say. She 
says that the master key went missing around 1 AM. Did 
somebody steal the key and then return it later? Or, as 
Portsman claims, did she just lose the key?

Guess what? We have...a new piece of testimony! Now, 
Portsman is saying that Maggey's motive was robbery.

Present the safe at this statement. True, the killer did 
attempt to steal something from the safe. But Portsman 
has forgotten that it is a secret safe! Only prosecutors 
know about them! Why, even Edgeworth's partner Detective 
Gumshoe didn't know about it!

The conclusion? The murderer is a prosecutor.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Press the statement about Maggey using the master key.
Ask Maggey to say more.
Present the safe at the statement about thievery.


Prosecutor Portsman is looking very nervous now. He then 
claims that he told the victim about the secret safes 
recently. So, clearly, the victim tried to steal things 
from Edgeworth's room, and Maggey, being a good security 
guard, decided to stop him at all costs.

Portsman further develops this line of thought. The 
victim was robbing the room, when Maggey came in. The 
victim pulled his gun on her, and she was forced to kill 
him in self-defense.

Portsman then claims that the victim stole the master key 
to the room. The reason Maggey now has the key is because 
she took it from his dead body.

Portsman then kicks everyone out of the room, claiming 
that he is now the prosecutor assigned to the case, and 
that they are all suspects.

The part now ends, and you are given the option to save 
your game. Oh, you can save your game at any time, did I 
mention that? Just hit "start" to bring up the "save 
game" screen.

3b. Prosecutor's Building - Hallway

Things certainly look bad for Maggey, now that our heroes 
have been kicked out of the crime scene, but Edgeworth is 
not worried. He wanted to inspect the hallway, anyway. 
It's the best place to solve the mystery of the missing 

You can explore the hallway and do unnecessary things, 
like examine the basketball, basketball hoop and talk to 
Prosecutor Payne.

Examine the sofa in the lower/left area. The missing file 
binder is here, under the sofa! Some pages are missing, 
however. They all deal with a 10-year-old case, which the 
person who had the office before Edgeworth served in. 
This information is added to Edgeworth's organizer.

Talk to Maggey. Edgeworth suggests presenting the key to 
her with the present button. Try it out now. Hit the Y 
button (or press "present"), and the organizer pops up. 
Pick a piece of evidence from the organizer, and press Y 
again to present it.

You can do this with any piece of evidence when talking 
to people.

Presenting the Master Key to Maggey causes her to tell 
you that it was stolen from 1:00 to 2:30. This 
information is added to Logic. She is sure that is when 
the key was stolen, because she used the key that night.

This opens up a new conversation topic called "Used the 
Master Key?" She used it to open up a door for a 
prosecutor who forgot his key...Prosecutor Portsman! Ah!
Ask about forgetful Mr. Portsman. At 12:00, Maggey opened 
the door to his office for him. At 1:30, she locked the 
door for him. This information is added to Logic.

Wait a minute...something about those times doesn't seem 
right. If the key was stolen from 1:00 to 2:30, how could 
it have been used at 12:00 and 1:30? Connect "Master key 
was stolen" to "Master key was used" in Logic.

Edgeworth confronts Maggey with this contradiction. She 
admits that she just pretended to lock Mr. Portsman's 
door. This information is added to the organizer.

It sounds like it's time to examine Portsman's door. When 
you examine the nameplate, you learn that he actually 
wanted Edgeworth's room, Room 1202. When you examine the 
basketball hoop, you learn that people generally 
recognize which door is Portsman's because of the 
basketball hoop.

When you examine the door lock, you'll notice that it's 
locked. But...Maggey just said she didn't lock the door. 
That's a contradiction! Deduce on the door lock and 
present the office door.

Edgeworth concludes that either the door was locked after 
Maggey pretended to lock it, or that she pretended to 
lock a different door. A simple fingerprint test should 
determine what happened.

Only the victim and prosecutor Portsman's fingerprints 
are on the door. Someone else's fingerprints should be on 
the door. Whose?

Pretty simple; select Maggey. If she opened the door, her 
fingerprints should be on it.

Once the door is fingerprinted, it is revealed that 
Maggey's prints are not on the doorknob. Therefore, she 
never touched it. Therefore, she opened a different door. 

Edgeworth then notices a note tucked under the door. 
Examine it to find that it is a letter from the victim to 
Prosecutor Portsman. Looks like the victim stopped by his 
room sometime, but he wasn't there.'s 
almost as if Portsman never entered his room tonight!

Examine the basketball hoop. Notice how it's NOT in 
position? That makes it seem like it was moved tonight. 
Edgeworth notes this in his organizer. 

Now, go to Edgeworth's door and examine it to get a 
close-up. Look at the doorknob to learn that it was wiped 
clean of fingerprints.



So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the binder hidden under the sofa in the 
Present the Master Key to Maggey.
Talk with Maggey about Using the Master Key and Forgetful 
Mr. Portsman.
Logically connect both times that involve the Master Key.
Look at Mr. Portsman's door.
  Look at the door lock.
  Deduce the lock.
    Present the office door as contrary to the lock. 
       Choose "prints on the doorknob". 
       Present Maggey's profile.
  Look at the note under Portsman's door.
  Look at the base of the basketball hoop.
Go to Edgeworth's door and look at the doorknob.


Edgeworth believes that Portsman is the murderer. He, 
Gumshoe and Maggey all return to Edgeworth's Office for 
the dramatic confrontation between Edgeworth and 

Edgeworth comes in and formally accuses Portsman. 
Portsman makes some snide comments about Edgeworth's 
mentor, Manfred von Karma, who was accused of falsifying 
evidence at various times in his career. Edgeworth isn't 
disturbed by this underhanded mud-slinging, and cross-
examination begins.

Cross-Examination: Mr. Portsman's Rebuttal

Portsman claims there is a mountain of evidence that 
points away from him. Besides, how could he have gotten 
into Edgeworth's locked office?

Present the Master Key at the statement about the locked 
office. Portsman told someone to open the door with the 
master key, and that someone is Maggey Byrde. She opened 
Edgeworth's office, not Mr. Portsman's!

Maggey confirms this story. She checked the nameplate on 
the door before opening it. Edgeworth suggests that 
Portsman switched nameplates, and furthermore, he tricked 
her into thinking she was at the right door with 
something else.

That something else is the basketball hoop. The hoop 
always sits outside Portsman's door, right? So Portsman 
moved it next to Edgeworth's door to trick Maggey into 
opening the door to Edgeworth's room. After all, there 
ARE signs the hoop was moved recently.

Portsman then gives more testimony.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Present the Master Key at the statement about the locked 
Select Maggey Byrde
Select the basketball hoop

Cross-Examination: Conjecture's Rebuttal

Portsman claims that Maggey opened the door to his room, 
and he was in his room the whole time.

Present the note left by the victim at the statement 
about being in his room the whole time. Clearly, he was 
NOT in his room at one point, because the note was 
delivered when he was NOT in his room. Of course, this is 
because he was in Edgeworth's Office, not his own.

Portsman demands proof. Edgeworth obliges, as he has 
decisive evidence. Select the office door. Maggey's 
prints aren't on it; therefore she didn't open that door. 
Most likely, she opened Edgeworth's (the door with 
fingerprints that were wiped clean). Perhaps, when the 
victim dropped the note off at Portsman's office, he 
heard Portsman in Edgeworth's office, went in to 
investigate, and that's when he was killed by Portsman.

Edgeworth also mentions his confrontation with the 
killer, that is, the time where the killer held him at 
gunpoint and shot the picture on the wall.

Edgeworth has a pretty compelling series of events, but 
Portsman lies and says he wiped down his doorknob because 
he's obsessive-compulsive. He then claims that he simply 
overlooked the note.

Further, because Edgeworth mentioned the confrontation 
with the killer, Portsman was able to remember he has an 


To summarize this cross-examination...

Present the note at the statement about being in the 
Select Mr. Portsman's door.

Cross-Examination: Portsman's Alibi

Edgeworth was held at gunpoint at 2:00 AM. Well, Portsman 
was in criminal affairs at the time. It's a rock-solid 

Gumshoe double-checks with criminal affairs. Portsman is 
right! Oh no! Edgeworth, however, believes there MUST be 
a contradiction somewhere in the testimony.

Press every statement. Darn! His alibi IS rock-solid! 
Portsman then orders that Maggey be arrested, and 
Edgeworth adds the information about the alibi to Logic.

In Logic, connect the statement about the second handgun 
to Portsman's alibi. What if there's a second gun because 
there was a second person in the room that night? We know 
that there must be a second person, the person that held 
Edgeworth at gunpoint, because Portsman has an alibi for 
that time.

Connect the idea of a second person in the room with the 
disarrayed files. Remember, the files were set in 
disarray twice: once before the murder and once after. If 
there was a second person in the room, this makes more 
sense; the murderer messed up the files once, and the 
second person in the room messed up the files once.

With all this new information, Edgeworth feels prepared 
to continue cross-examination. After all, Edgeworth 
thought the person who held him at gunpoint was the 
killer. Now, it seems that this is NOT the case; the 
person who held him at gunpoint is, in fact, someone 
else. A thief, perhaps? Someone DID steal one of the 
files from the room after the murder, after all.

In any case, the presence of a second person explains why 
there are two handguns that were fired once in the room, 
and the fact that the files were disturbed twice.

Edgeworth explains the series of events in great detail.

Portsman is amused at this series of events. If it's 
true, his alibi is worthless, as it only shows he is not 
the second person in the room. Does he have an alibi 
which shows he is not the FIRST person in the room (i.e. 
the killer)?

Portsman may not have an alibi, but Edgeworth has no 
solid proof that he WAS the first person in the room. 
Portsman then gives testimony to the effect that the 
SECOND person in the room was the killer, not the first 
person in the room.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Press every statement.
Logically connect the second handgun to the alibi.
Logically connect the second person to the files.

Cross-Examination: Portsman's Alibi, Part 2

Portsman claims the thief should be the main suspect, as 
he was training in his room the whole time. He left to go 
the Criminal Affairs, and that's when the victim left a 
note under his door.

Press the statement about Jim visiting Mr. Portsman. 
Portsman clarifies a bit and says that he knew Jim wanted 
to deliver two pieces of evidence.

Edgeworth adds this statement to the testimony. If you 
read the note from the victim, it clearly says there are 
THREE pieces of testimony. Present the note from the 
victim at the statement about two pieces of evidence to 
make an objection.

Foiled by arithmetic, Portsman! Where's the THIRD piece 
of evidence? Gumshoe searches Portsman and finds a 
videotape. Portsman gets really, really upset about this, 
and Edgeworth concludes it must be because the tape 
indicates him as the murderer.

Edgeworth does scientific investigation on the videotape, 
a tape from the KG-8 incident. Flip the tape over to find 
blood. Fresh blood! The victim's blood, perhaps?

Edgeworth plans to have the tape fingerprinted 
immediately. If the only fingerprints on it belong to the 
victim and Portsman, that should pretty much prove that 
Portsman stole it from the victim after he was killed.

Portsman is so upset by the fact that his guilt has been 
proven that he faints.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Press the statement about Jim delivering evidence.
Present the victim's note at the statement about two 
pieces of evidence.
Flip the tape over and examine the blood.


Portsman is arrested, and the lab guys confirm that the 
blood on the tape was the victim's. Maggey and Gumshoe 
are both very grateful to Edgeworth now.

The case is pretty much over now, but we never DID find 
out why Portsman robbed Edgeworth's office. Gumshoe 
suggests that it is because of a behind-the-scenes 

Edgeworth has a further problem. Present the stolen file 
at this point. We don't know why the second thief tried 
to steal this file! Who was that person, anyhow?

An officer comes in, saying he found a card in the 
office. Edgeworth recognizes it as the calling card of 
Master Thief Yatagarasu! Yatagarasu is a thief who sneaks 
into corporations and expose corruption from the inside!

The Master Thief Yatagarasu...corruption...a behind-the-
scenes criminal organization...These are all dramatic 
things, and thanks to what happened not too long ago, 
Edgeworth knows about these things all too well.

Specifically, Edgeworth learned about the behind-the-
scenes criminal organization two days earlier, which is 
the story we go over in Case #2. After that, Case #3 took 
place, and that case involved the Master Thief 
Yatagarasu. Because of these two cases, Edgeworth can't 
say he was COMPLETELY caught off-guard by the sudden 
appearance of Yatagarasu and the criminal ring.

4. Case Two: Turnabout Airlines

Edgeworth remembers that two days ago, he was involved in 
a murder mystery, while flying back to America on an 

Specifically, there was some turbulence in mid-flight. 
Edgeworth, who has a childhood fear of earthquakes, 
collapsed, unconscious, for about ten minutes while in 
the First Class Lounge.

Edgeworth then gets up and finds a travel wallet in his 
pocket. Weird. That's not HIS travel wallet! Oh well, no 
matter. Time to ride the elevator up and return to his 

AUGH! A dead body is in the elevator! Worse yet, a flight 
attendant comes in at exactly this moment, and she 
assumes Edgeworth is the murderer. She quickly puts him 
under arrest, and the case begins.

4a. First Class Lounge, In-Flight Shop

The flight attendant is Rhoda Teneiro, and she is sure 
that Edgeworth is the killer. Edgeworth pleads for the 
chance to defend himself, so Ms. Teneiro gives testimony.

Cross-Examination: What Ms. Teneiro Saw

Ms. Teneiro isn't lying. She is sure Edgeworth is the 
killer. She saw him with the murder weapon in his hand, 
and it was dripping blood.

That's pretty decisive testimony, except for the fact 
that Edgeworth never had a murder weapon. Go to the 
statement about him having the murder weapon in his hand, 
and present the Travel Wallet. See, Edgeworth wasn't 
holding a murder weapon! He was holding a wallet!

Furthermore, the travel wallet is dripping with wine, 
er..."grape juice". Grape juice is not blood.

Ms. Teneiro requests that the wallet be opened. Do so by 
selecting the latch with Scientific Investigation!  
Inside is the victim's passport. The victim's name is 
Akbey Hicks. Ms. Teneiro is shocked and immediately 
discerns a motive for the crime.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Present the travel wallet on the statement about the 
murder weapon in Edgeworth's hand.
Open the travel wallet.

Cross-Examination: Ms. Teneiro's Logic

So, maybe Edgeworth wasn't caught with the murder weapon. 
He WAS caught with the victim's wallet. This indicates 
that Edgeworth killed the victim and then robbed him for 

Present the crime scene notes on the statement about 
money. You see, there is money strewn about the crime 
scene. Theft could not have been the motive in this case, 
because nothing was stolen, save the travel wallet.

Of course, Edgeworth needs to prove this, so when given 
the chance to select something, select the money on the 

Ms. Teneiro sees the flaw in her logic and apologizes. 
She frees Mr. Edgeworth, which upsets one of the other 
passengers: a foreigner by the name of Zinc Lablanc. He 
is an art dealer from the imaginary country of Borginia.

Lablanc is hot-headed, and he is very obsessive about the 
time of the crime, because he wanted to watch the in-
flight movie at 6:00. So he knows for a fact that the 
victim entered the elevator at 6:00. This tells us that 
the murder took place somewhere between 6:00 and 6:15.

The captain of the airplane gives Edgeworth permission to 
investigate the crime scene, provided that Ms. Teneiro 
accompanies him at all times. She also has the power to 
end the investigation whenever she wants.

Examine the first class area if you want to, but what you 
should do now is go to the left, then down the stairs to 
the first class lounge.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Present the Crime Scene Notes at the statement about 
Select the money on the ground.

Investigation: First Class Lounge

Ms. Teneiro says that nobody entered or left first class 
near the time of the crime. Ergo, we have a First Class 

Investigation time! You can examine a bunch of things 
here, but there are only two areas you need to look at. 
Both of them give you close-ups of the area.

First is the big "grape juice" stain outside the 
elevator. The close-up reveals something interesting. 
Select the footprints here. Apparently, someone left the 
elevator after the grape juice was spilled (at the time 
of the turbulence). So...someone left the elevator around 
the time of the murder.

The second area to look at is the crime scene. You can 
get a close-up of the victim's body. Examine the corpse 
to get a bunch of information, such as the fact that the 
victim was hit on the back of the head, and his glasses 
were broken.

What is the murder weapon? There's a figurine in the 
lower/right. It's a piggy bank of Mr. iFly, the airline 
company's mascot. It is also covered in blood, which 
makes it likely that it is the true murder weapon.

There's a piece of paper in the victim's pocket. Examine 
it to find that it's a photo. Wait a minute! There's 
something in the photo which is missing from the crime 
scene...the cell phone that Zinc Lablanc complained 

Deduce at the cell phone holding device around the 
victim's neck. Then, present the photo of Mr. Hicks. 
Edgeworth notes that the cell phone is missing and puts 
this in his notes.

That's all for investigation. We have a lot of 
information, so let's use Logic and clear up Mr. 
Edgeworth's cluttered head!

You can make two connections right off the bat.

Connect "Where was the killer" with "elevator". We don't 
know where the killer was, but we know the victim was in 
the elevator. The conclusion? The murderer was in the 
elevator, too. This is added to Logic.

Connect "blunt force trauma" with "murder weapon". 
Edgeworth concludes that the murder weapon is, in fact, 
the murder weapon. This is added to the organizer.

Connect "In the elevator with Hicks?" with "Spilled grape 
juice". We suspect the murderer was in the elevator, and 
we know there are footprints leading away from the 
elevator. Presumably, the person who made the footprints 
is the real murderer. So now we know for certain that the 
murderer was in the elevator.

The grape juice footprints are added to the organizer. 
Investigation Complete! 


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the grape juice stain.
  Highlight the footprints.
Examine the crime scene.
  Examine the corpse.
  Examine the figurine.
  Examine the paper in the victim's pocket.
  Deduce, using the cell phone neck strap.
  Present the picture of Mr. Hicks.
Using Logic, connect "Where was the killer" with 
Using Logic, connect "blunt force trauma" with "murder 
Using Logic, connect "In the elevator with Hicks?" with 
"Spilled grape juice".


Zinc Lablanc, who is still angry, comes down to the 
lounge to complain that the in-flight move STILL isn't 
being shown. It was supposed to be shown at 6:00, and 
past 6:30! What's the hold-up?

While complaining, Mr. Lablanc notices Edgeworth. He 
turns his anger on the good prosecutor and explains why 
Edgeworth has to be guilty.

Cross-Examination: What I Saw

Lablanc saw Hicks enter the elevator to the lounge at 
six. At that time, Edgeworth was the only one in the 
lounge. The body was found at six-fifteen. Ergo, 
Edgeworth is the murderer.

Press the statement about Hicks entering the elevator. 
Edgeworth will ask for more information. Lablanc says the 
elevator was empty; Hicks was alone in his trip on the 

This is too important to let pass by, so Edgeworth has it 
added to the testimony. 

Lablanc confirms that no one besides the victim was in 
the elevator. Present the Grape Juice Footprints at this 
statement. The footprints prove someone left the elevator 
after the turbulence. Ergo, Hicks could not have been the 
only one in the elevator.

Lavlanc thinks this is totally impossible and gets upset. 
However, nobody thinks he is lying. So...why is there a 
contradiction? Perhaps more testimony will clear things 


To summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "I am certain I saw Mr. Hicks enter 
the elevator!"
Present the Grape Juice Footprints at "The only person 
inside was that Mr. Hicks man!"

Cross-Examination: What I Saw, Part 2

Lablanc was very upset when Hicks was passing by. He 
checked his watch many times, which is why he's so 
certain of the time. He is equally certain that no one 
else was in the elevator.

Press the second statement, the one about Lablanc 
checking his watch constantly. Lablanc says that he was 
hoping to watch the movie at 6:00, which is why he was 
constantly checking his watch.

This leads to Edgeworth checking the in-flight magazine, 
and a new statement about how Lablanc's watch is set to 
the destination's time. But...if you paid attention when 
Edgeworth checked the magazine, you noticed that the 
flight is set to the departure time.

Present the in-flight magazine at the statement about the 
destination's time zone to show Mr. Lablanc the error of 
his ways.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement about checking the watch many times.
Present the in-flight magazine at the statement about the 
watch being set to the destination time zone.


Ms. Teneiro confirms what is in the in-flight magazine. 
This plane is still working on the Borginian time zone, 
not the Californian time zone. That explains why the 
movie was not on at 6:00, as Lablanc expected. It also 
means that Lablanc saw the victim enter the elevator at 
3:00, not 6:00.

Edgeworth learns some new information, such as the fact 
that the plane made a brief stop in Zheng Fa from 4:00 to 
5:00. The flight attendant who speaks Borginian, Cammy 
Meele, says that she saw the victim in his seat at 5:00.

But wait! Edgeworth was in the lounge at 5:00 onward. 
So...that means Edgeworth is STILL the main suspect!

Edgeworth is challenged to alleviate suspicion by showing 
the crime is tied to somewhere besides the lounge. You 
can present the footsteps which lead to the in-flight 
shop, but Lablanc is only convinced when you show the 
iFly Piggy Bank. The murder weapon came from the shop, 
right? That means the shop is worth investigating.

Ms. Teneiro agrees. At 5:40, she saw the murder weapon in 
the shop. Wait, that's just before the murder! Ms. 
Teneiro, why didn't you meantion this EARLIER?

Ms. Teneiro is looking suspicious now, and she seems even 
_more_ suspicious when it is revealed that she did not 
ask the captain for permission to investigate. Cammy did, 
however, so she's going to be Edgeworth's partner for the 
next leg of investigation.

Fortunately, the investigation in the in-flight shop goes 
much more quickly than the previous investigation 
(because there's no cross-examination to be had here).

Edgeworth begins the investigation by adding the piggy 
bank to Logic.

Well, right off the start, I can see one thing that looks 
worthy of investigation: all the broken glass that's on 
the floor. Examine it to find a mini captain's hat. Gee, 
where did that come from?

If you check Edgeworth's notes, you can probably figure 
it out. The hat goes on the piggy bank statue. Connect 
the statue to the hat in Logic, and Edgeworth concludes 
that the murder weapon probably came from this display 
case. The notes on the murder weapon are then updated.

So let's take a closer look at the display. 
Hmmm...interesting. The Deduce button is here, so there 
must be a contradiction here. Perhaps there's a problem 
with the glass? Select the shelf the murder weapon goes 
on (the one in the middle that's empty), Deduce, then 
present the murder weapon.

Edgeworth then uses his super logic skills to derive a 
contradiction. The glass is on the floor outside of the 
display case, therefore, the display case glass was 
broken from the inside. Woah! And since no one was inside 
the display case, obviously, that means the piggy bank 
broke the glass during the turbulence.

But the turbulence took place AFTER the murder occurred 
so that means it can't be the murder weapon! Edgeworth 
adds the information about turbulence to his Logic.

So much for investigating the display case. Examine the 
ugly suitcases that are 50% off. Ms. Teneiro designed 
these suitcases, in case you didn't know.

Some turbulence hits, and one suitcases moves out of 
position. Wait a minute...turbulence. Didn't we just add 
something about turbulence to Logic?

Open the Logic function. We know that whenever turbulence 
hits, the suitcase moves. We saw that just now. But...we 
also know turbulence hit at the time of the murder. 
However, the suitcase couldn't have moved then, because 
we didn't find it out of position. Odd.

Logically connect the suitcase to the turbulence, and 
Edgeworth points out this odd contradiction. Ms. Meele 
doesn't understand what he's talking about, so let's help 
her out a bit. At the close-up picture of the suitcases, 
point out the missing wheel stoppers on the left 

See? There are wheel stoppers on the right suitcase to 
prevent it from moving during turbulence! Why aren't 
there stoppers on the left suitcase?

Edgeworth thinks it could be that the suitcase was placed 
here after the turbulence. In any case, this suitcase is 
looking highly suspicious. Time to take a closer look at 
it with scientific investigation.

Open the suitcase by pressing the button the side of it. 
It's a blue button, and it's touching the red trip. 
Inside the suitcase is a piece of bloody cloth. Augh!

Okay, it's official: the suitcase is DEFINITELY related 
to the murder somehow. But it's rather unlikely that 
someone would use a suitcase to transport a bloody cloth. 
No, the murderer probably transported something much 
bigger...the victim's body.

Present the crime scene notes here, which have a picture 
of the victim's body.

So now Edgeworth has a pretty good idea of the crime 
scene. Well, kind of. The murder weapon is NOT the piggy 
bank from the In-Flight Shop, and the corpse was 
transported to the First Class Lounge by means of a 
suitcase. It looks likes the actual murder didn't take 
place in the lounge OR the in-flight shop.

Rhoda Teneiro comes in and informs Edgeworth that the 
investigation is over. That is, the captain thinks 
Edgeworth has had enough time to investigate. Faced with 
the dead end, Edgeworth is forced to stop investigation, 
but he's still curious as to the real culprit to this 


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the broken glass.
Using Logic, connect the captain's hat to the murder 
Examine the display case
  Deduce, using the empty shelf in the display case.
  Present the piggy bank.
Examine the suitcases.
Using Logic, connect the suitcases to the turbulence.
Present the wheels of suitcase on the left.
Open the suitcase.
Present the Crime Scene Notes.

4b. Franziska Appears

Edgeworth, of course, preserves the crime scene until the 
plane lands, at which time, he is instructed to leave the 
matter to the local police. Fortunately, our friend 
Gumshoe is part of the local police, as well 

Hey, it's Franziska von Karma! She was the leading 
prosecutor in Phoenix Wright 2: Justice For All! She's 
also the daughter of Manfred von Karma, Edgeworth's 
mentor, so the two of them saw a lot of each other while 
growing up. In fact, they have a semi-brother/sister 
relationship, even though they're not related.

Franziska, however, is usually angry at Edgeworth, 
because he's always showing her up. HE was the first one 
to get his attorney's badge, not her. HE was the first 
one to defeat Phoenix Wright in court, not her. And HE 
gets to star in his own videogame, while she gets 
relegated to the role of secondary character. 
Understandably, she's upset about this.

Oh, and she has a whip. It's best not to get on her bad 

Franziska is upset with Edgeworth right now because he's 
a murder suspect, but she doesn't think he's REALLY the 
culprit, so she agrees to let him continue his 
investigation...for now.

Franziska then calls in Detective Gumshoe and asks him to 
guard Edgeworth.

Talk to Gumshoe about everything. It seems that Franziska 
mysteriously appeared in the United States, and she was 
so quick in getting to this crime scene that Gumshoe 
suspects she knew about the murder ahead of time. 
Interesting...could Franziska's current case be somehow 
related to the murder on the airplane?

Go left and Edgeworth boards the plane. There is a brief 
scene of Franziska interrogating the plane captain and 
whipping him. Edgeworth moves on to the in-flight longue, 
where Mr. Lablanc is still very angry, this time at being 
detained on the plane after it has already landed.

Talk to Mr. Lablanc here. He is upset (naturally) because 
he isn't being allowed to examine his artwork in the 
cargo hold. He has all sorts of art, from statues to 

Speaking of costumes...doesn't Mr. Lablanc's hat resemble 
the bloody cloth we found in the suitcase? Ask him about 
it, and he says it's a very common cloth to ship overseas 
due to its popularity, and he isn't transporting any on 
this flight.

Lablanc complains about Ms. Teneiro, whose investigation 
is taking a long time. Ask him about that, and Edgeworth 
agrees that it is unusal that the police haven't finished 
interrogating her yet.

Franziska von Karma will come in, because she's finished 
talking with the captain and Cammy Meele. Unfortunately, 
she still thinks Edgeworth is the most likely suspect, so 
there is no need to talk to Miss Teneiro (which is what 
Edgeworth wants to do). We'll have to disprove 
Franziska's logic here to continue the investigation.


So, to summarize this bit of investigation:

Talk to Gumshoe about both topics.
Go left, to the in-flight lounge.
Present the Bloody Cloth to Zinc Lablanc.
Talk to Lablanc about Rhoda Teneiro.

Cross-Examination: Franziska's Logic

Franziska says she'll keep things simple. The crime scene 
is the first class lounge. The only person in the lounge 
at the time was Edgeworth; ergo, he is the most likely 

If you press her statements, you learn the Franziska 
doesn't know all the facts of the case yet. This is the 
main flaw in her argument; she hasn't learned about 
Edgeworth's discoveries in the in-flight shop. Namely, 
she doesn't know that the murder took place outside of 
the elevator.

At the statement which says the murder took place in the 
elevator, present the suitcase. The body was transported 
to the elevator by means of the suitcase. That's pretty 
clear evidence that the murder took place elsewhere, 

Franziska wants more evidence. Present the Grape Juice 
Footprints, then select the tracks left by the wheels of 
the suitcase. Given the fact that the suitcase wheels 
have grape juice residue on them, it is now certain that 
this suitcase was taken through the area after the 

Franziska agrees, but she doesn't think this exonerates 
Edgeworth. After all, who's to say that the suitcase 
transported the dead body, and not just the bloody cloth? 
Further, this murder could have been premeditated, an 
idea Franziska expounds upon in her next testimony.


So, to summarize this cross-examination:

Present the suitcase at the statement which says the 
first-class lounge is the scene of the crime.
Present the grape juice footprints.
Present the tracks left by the wheels of the suitcase.

Cross-Examination: Franziska's Logic, Part Two

Franziska argues the murder was pre-meditated. Edgeworth 
prepared the piggy bank ahead of time, and he was in the 
process of moving the body away from the elevator in the 
suitcase when the turbulence hit. This sudden problem 
forced Edgeworth to double back and pretend to be the one 
who discovered the body.

This is an interesting testimony from Franziska 
especially because, as Edgeworth points out, it accounts 
for the murder weapon. However, just like with the last 
piece of testimony, Franziska doesn't have all the facts. 
Namely, Edgeworth found out that the piggy bank was 
removed from the in-flight shop AFTER the turbulence 
(remember how the glass in the in-flight shop proved 
this?). Therefore, the piggy bank cannot be the murder 

So, at the first statement of the testimony, present the 
piggy bank. Edgeworth tells Franziska that it is not the 
real murder weapon.

Edgeworth then gives a tidy summary of what we know so 
far. After the murder, the murderer did three things. 1) 
The murderer moved the suitcase containing the bloody 
cloth inside the in-flight shop. 2) The murderer took the 
piggy bank from the in-flight shop in order to make it 
seem that the piggy bank is the murder weapon. 3) The 
murderer framed Edgeworth by planting the victim's 
passport/wallet on him. 

However, there are no other possible murder weapons. So, 
either the weapon is still being hidden, or someone 
tampered with the glass in the in-flight shop to make it 
seem like the piggy bank was removed after the 
turbulence. The only person who could have tampered with 
the in-flight shop in such a way is the only person with 
the key to the cabinet: Rhoda Teneiro.

Ms. Teneiro is in the attendant's room, which is to the 
left. Walk there now to enter the room.


So, to summarize this cross-examination:

Present the piggy bank at the statement about preparing 
the piggy bank beforehand.


It's time to talk to Miss Teneiro now, and see what her 
relation to the crime is. She's keeping a secret about 
the in-flight shop; is this secret related to the murder? 
Or is it just a coincidence?

Talk to Ms. Teneiro about the captain's permission. She 
lied when she said the captain gave her and Edgeworth 
permission to examine the crime scene. Why?

She says she lied because she didn't think the captain 
would give permission, as he only listens to Cammy. Also, 
Ms. Teneiro wanted to make things up to Edgeworth after 
falsely accusing him of murder.

Okay, so that's one mystery solved. What about the in-
flight shop? Talk to Ms. Teneiro about that, and she 
lies, denying that she has any connection to the in-
flight shop at all.

Present the suitcase to Ms. Teneiro. She designed the 
suitcases in the shop, after all. There's a connection 
between her and the shop! Ms. Teneiro admits she was 
interested in seeing how well the suitcases were selling.

Talk to Ms. Teneiro about the last suitcase. Apparently, 
there was only one left for sale! Oh, so they're selling 
very well! That's surprising, because they're ugly 
suitcases. And it's double surprising because there were 
two suitcases in the shop when Edgeworth looked.

Speaking of suitcases, isn't that one in the corner? Ms. 
Teneiro says she bought it a long time ago, but that's an 
obvious lie. After all, it still has a price tag on it! 
Point out the price tag, and Edgeworth figures out the 

The suitcase in this room came from the in-flight shop, 
and it was purchased by Rhoda Teneiro. That's right, the 
only person willing to buy such a hideous suitcase is Ms. 
Teneiro. She felt really bad that her suitcase design was 
such a failure, so she determined to artificially boost 
sales by buying a suitcase every time she served a 

So, that's her secret. She was in the in-flight shop to 
buy a suitcase. She didn't want to tell anyone about 
this, because it kinds of makes her look bad. After all, 
it's admitting that her suitcase design is a total 

Okay, so this clears Ms. Teneiro of all wrongdoing, 

No...wait. There's still the problem of the extra 
suitcase, the one with the bloody cloth inside. We have 
just confirmed it did NOT come from the in-flight shop; 
of the two suitcases in the shop, one was purchased by 
Ms. Teneiro and the other one was there during the whole 
flight. So where did the third suitcase come from?

Franziska knows something Edgeworth doesn't know; the 
suitcases come from the cargo hold. So this third 
suitcase must have been brought in from there.

But...access to the cargo hold is blocked. You need a 
special keycard to get there, and Ms. Teneiro is the only 
one with this keycard.

Ms. Teneiro checks her locker and is surprised to find 
the keycard is stolen. But was it REALLY stolen, or is 
she just pretending? Franziska places Ms. Teneiro under 
arrest in the meantime, and Edgeworth goes to examine the 
cargo hold.


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Ms. Teneiro about the captain's permission.
Talk to Ms. Teneiro about the in-flight shop.
Present the suitcase to Ms. Teneiro.
Talk to Ms. Teneiro about the last suitcase.
Present the price tag of the suitcase.
Select the in-flight shop.
Select Rhoda Teneiro.

4c. The Cargo Hold

If we've thought through everything correctly so far, the 
suitcase containing the bloody cloth was taken from here, 
the cargo hold. Also, Edgeworth suspects that the real 
murder took place here, and the body was transported to 
the in-flight lounge by means of the suitcase.

Start off by examining the suitcases. Yep, one of them is 
clearly missing! This is almost certainly the place where 
the mysterious third suitcase came from! Also, Edgeworth 
notes that there are glass shards on the floor. That's 
odd, and he adds it to Logic.

Speaking of suitcases, do you see an open black suitcase 
lying on the ground? Examine it to learn that it belongs 
to the victim. Inside is a picture of Franziska, along 
with a profile on her. Woah! Sounds like Franzy's got a 
stalker! Edgeworth adds this to Logic.

Talk to Franziska. She talks a little bit about why she 
was able to get to this crime scene so quickly: she's 
working with Interpol on a top-secret assignment. So, she 
was already at the airport, on other business.

Logic Time! Open up Logic to see that Edgeworth has four 
things here, and two pretty obvious connections to make.

First, connect the broken glasses to the glass shards. 
Edgeworth is confident that the glass shards here in the 
cargo hold come from the victim's broken glasses. Ergo, 
this is the real scene of the murder, as Edgeworth has 
suspected for quite some time now.

Second, connect the profile on Franziska with the fact 
that she's working for Interpol. It seems that the victim 
was working for Interpol; in fact, it seems that he was 
Franziska's contact.

Talk to Franziska about the victim. She confirms that she 
was going to meet with Agent Hicks on official Interpol 
business. In fact, Agent Hicks is on the trail of a 
smuggling ring. He was working undercover, and he was 
supposed to meet with Franziska upon landing.

Edgeworth figures investigation is over (for now). We 
have a pretty good idea of what happened: Agent Hicks 
went to the cargo hold as part of his investigation of 
the smuggling ring.

The question is how did he get down to the cargo hold? He 
must have travelled with a member of the flight crew. The 
crew member then killed him in the cargo hold, and 
stuffed his body in a suitcase. While travelling in the 
elevator, the plane hit a spot of turbulence, and the 
body flew out of the suitcase.

Investigation Complete! Based off the investigation, 
Franziska concludes that Ms. Teneiro is the murderer, and 
she explains why. 


So, to sum up this bit of investigation...

Examine the double row of suitcases.
Examine the black, open suitcase.
Talk to Franziska about the airport.
Using logic, connect the broken glasses with the glass 
Using logic, connect Franziska's profile with Interpol.
Talk to Franziska about Mr. Hicks.

Cross-Examination: Definitive Evidence

Franziska thinks all the evidence points to Ms. Teneiro. 
After all, only someone with the right keycard, Ms. 
Teneiro's keycard, could get down to the cargo hold with 
the victim.

Press the statement about the keycard that allows 
elevator access, as it is the crux of her argument. She 
will supplement her testimony with a new statement about 
how Ms. Teneiro is ALSO the only person with access to 
the display case that the murder weapon came from.

Press this new statement about the key to the display 
case with the murderous piggy bank. After all, there's a 
big flaw in this statement. Edgeworth proved the piggy 
bank was NOT the murder weapon some time ago!

Clearly, something else needs to be investigated. What is 
it? Select "the body". We don't have an autopsy report, 
so we can't confirm or disconfirm the piggy bank as the 
murder weapon.

Gumshoe runs off to get the autopsy report, and he comes 
back with the news that, as expected, the piggy bank is 
NOT the murder weapon. You see, the victim has a large 
wound which covers most of his back. What weapon could 
THAT be from?

Enter Zinc Lablanc, the angry foreigner. He gets in a 
fight with a police officer and is pushed off the top of 
the stairs. Edgeworth suddenly has a flash of insight: 
someone pushed off the top of the stairs could possibly 

Edgeworth immediately jumps to Logic. Connect the piggy 
to the cause of death to receive "the missing weapon". 
Connect "the missing weapon" to "a sizeable weapon".

Edgeworth boldly proclaims he knows what the murder 
weapon is. Franziska wants evidence, but say you don't 
have evidence to show, because the victim died from a 
free fall.

Zinc Lablanc gets up, perfectly unharmed, because he 
landed on a piece of cargo. Franziska concludes that this 
means a fall from the top of the stairs is not fatal, but 
Edgeworth concludes that the piece of cargo in question 
wasn't there at the time the victim was pushed.

What time was that? Present the article on refueling in 
Zheng Fa. New cargo was taken onboard at that time, so 
the murder must have been during/before that time.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement about the keycard and the elevator.
Press the statement about the murderous piggy bank.
Select "The body".
Using Logic, connect the piggy bank to the cause of 
Using Logic, connect the missing weapon with the sizeable 
Select "I don't have evidence to show".
Select "Free fall".
Select "Refueling in Zheng Fa".


Investigation immediately picks up again, because 
Edgeworth needs to learn more about this piece of cargo 
and ascertain whether or not it was moved. Naturally, the 
first thing you want to do is look at the cargo box.

When you do so, Mr. Lablanc runs down and starts 
hollering about how you should keep your hands off his 
artwork. Ah, it appears he owns the piece of cargo. Well, 
this should certainly clear things up for us! Talk to him 
about it.

He tells you that the artwork is very valuable, in 
addition to being big. Edgeworth adds this to Logic.

Open up Logic now. If people are smuggling things on the 
plane, and the most valuable thing onboard is this piece 
of artwork, then the smugglers might have targeted this 
piece of art! In other words, it could be a fake!

Lablanc is sure it is not a fake, because he has some 
certification documents saying it is real. However, those 
documents might be fake, too. Let's take a closer look.

The statue is unveiled, and it's called the Alif Red 
statue. The victim had a photo of it, and...wait, doesn't 
something look weird about the statue? In the victim's 
photo, the statue has different-colored eyes!

Deduce at the eyes, then present the victim's photo. Yep, 
this statue looks like a fake now! Edgeworth is sure he 
can further prove it is a fake, so do some more 
deduction. Move down to the bottom of the statue.

Deduce at the cover underneath the statue. Present the 
Cargo from Zheng Fa here. Obviously, if the statue is 
ABOVE the cargo from Zheng Fa, it was put onboard AFTER 
the stop at Zheng Fa. Therefore, as Edgeworth suspected, 
the statue is a fake.

Franziska orders the statue to be moved, and sure enough, 
there's a blood stain underneath. It was cleaned up, 
however. By what?

Select the bloody cloth. It makes sense this was used to 
clean up the blood from the murder.

Edgeworth now gets to choose his next witness. That 
witness is the real murderer, the flight attendant who 
led the victim to the cargo hold...Cammy Meele. Edgeworth 
now has proof she was lying, so he wants to confront her 
with it.


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the large cargo box
Talk to Lablanc about his cargo.
Using Logic, connect the smuggling ring with the valuable 
piece of art.
Talk to Lablanc about the possibility of the smuggling 
ring wanting to steal his valuable piece of art.
Deduce, using the statue's eyes.
Present the photo of the victim at the statue.
Deduce, using the cloth under the statue.
Present the cargo from Zheng Fa.
Select the bloody cloth.
Select Cammy Meele.

4d. Confrontation

After the chance to save your game, the investigation 
picks up again in the cargo hold. Cammy Meele is now 
here, along with Rhoda Teneiro. Cammy is sleepy, and she 
seems amused that she is now a suspect.

Cross-Examination: Ms. Meele's Alibi

Cammy is pretty sleepy, but she wakes up long enough to 
say she was in the flight attendant's room from 3 to 4, 
and 5 to 6.

Press the last statement about her being alone in the 
flight attendant's room from 5 to 6, and raise an 
objection when given the opportunity. We have proof that 
someone else was in the flight attendant's room at that 

Remember? Ms. Teneiro bought a suitcase at 5:40 AM and 
dropped it off. The suitcase receipt in the evidence 
proves this, so present that. Why is it that Ms. Teneiro 
didn't see Cammy in the flight attendant's room when she 
visited the room at 5:40?

Cammy makes up an excuse on the spot: she was in the 
bathroom at the time. Edgeworth can't disprove this 
statement, so the cross-examination ends. Fortunately for 
us, Cammy gives a new piece of testimony in an attempt to 
exonerate herself. Hopefully, the testimony will do just 
the opposite.


So, to summarize this cross-examination...

Press the statement about 5 to 6.
Raise an objection.
Present the suitcase receipt.

Cross-Examination: Reason for Suspicion

Cammy thinks that Edgeworth is defending Ms. Teneiro 
because the two of them kind of like each other. 
Interesting idea. However, it's obviously that a flight 
attendant committed the crime, and Ms. Teneiro is totally 
suspicious, because she's in charge of the flight shop 
and has the keycard to the cargo hold.

Press the statement about the keycard and the shop to get 
a new piece of testimony. Edgeworth learns that Cammy is 
in charge of all foreign guests who don't speak English; 
as we saw earlier, she speaks fluent Borginian. She also 
is in charge of all documents written in Borginian.

Hey, we have a document written in Borginian! The 
falsified certificate which says the forged statue is 
real! Go to the statement that says Cammy is in charge of 
Borginian stuff, and present the certificate.

Cammy gets a little upset now. She admits that she signed 
off on the certificate without actually checking to make 
sure it was legit, but that doesn't mean she's a murderer 
or a member of the smuggling ring. In fact, even if she 
WAS a smuggler, that doesn't mean she's a murderer.

Franziska disagrees; if Cammy worked for the smugglers, 
she would have a strong motive for murder. Cammy accuses 
Ms. Teneiro, but Edgeworth defends her. It's obvious the 
killer went to great lengths to frame Ms. Teneiro, ergo, 
Ms. Teneiro is most likely NOT the killer.

How was she framed? Present the suitcase. The killer went 
out of his or her way to use a suitcase that is only 
owned by Ms. Teneiro. Either Ms. Teneiro is very bad at 
covering her tracks, or the killer was deliberately 
trying to frame her.

Why would the killer frame her? Because of where the 
murder took place: on an airplane. There was no question 
of hiding the body before the plane landed; ergo, the 
killer had to frame someone.

It's a very nice (and accurate) picture that Edgeworth 
has painted here, but it's all circumstantial. Time to 
change gears. Is there any evidence Edgeworth hasn't 
looked at yet?

Pick the cell phone. Yeah, what happened to the victim's 
cell phone? Franziska calls it, and it starts ringing. 
Let's see if we can find it.

Go upstairs and look in Ms. Teneiro's locker. The cell 
phone is there! It looks like the murderer did a really 
thorough job in trying to frame her.

Franziska is ready to arrest Ms. Teneiro again, but 
Edgeworth tells her to "Hold it!" They haven't examined 
the cell phone yet. If the killer stole the cell phone, 
odds are there is some incriminating evidence on it.

Edgeworth examines the cell phone. Turn it around to see 
a camera lens. Examine it to learn that there is a photo 
on the cell phone. This is our only lead, so we have to 
examine it, even though it's a photo of the smuggling 
operation, not the kidnapping.

You can examine several things in the picture, but the 
important thing to look at is the boxes in the 
lower/right. The boxes are cargo that was dropped off at 
Zheng Fa; they contain cloth.

Wait a second...cloth! Could it be? Yes! Present the 
piece of bloody cloth. This must be where the bloody 
cloth came from. The killer pushed the victim off the top 
of the stairs, and cleaned up the blood with a cloth from 
one of the boxes down here.

What's more, the word "cloth" is written on the crates in 
Borginian. This must mean the killer was able to read 
Borginian, right?

Cammy disagrees; the killer could have just looted all 
the boxes in the area until finding the one with 
Borginian cloth inside. After all, if you're looking for 
something to clean up a blood spill, you aren't picky 
about what box you go through.

Edgeworth disagrees, because there's a better box here. 
Select the only other box in view, the one which has 
"bedsheets" written on it. If the killer wanted something 
to clean up a blood spill, the killer would have opened 
the box of bedsheets first. Unless, of course, the killer 
could read Borginian.

The fact that the killer opened up the Borginian box of 
cloth before the English box of bedsheets indicates the 
killer can read Borginian. The only crew member who 
speaks Borginian is Cammy, and therefore, she is the 
murderer. In the face of this logic, Cammy confesses that 
she is the murderer. 


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement about the keycard and in-flight shop.
Present the Alif Red Certificate at the statement about 
Borginian stuff.
Present the suitcase.
Select "Where the murder took place"
Present the cell phone.
Go upstairs.
Examine Ms. Teneiro's locker.
Turn the cell phone over and examine the camera.
Examine the boxes in the lower/right.
Present the Borginian Cloth.
Present the box of bedsheets.


Cammy is arrested, and Ms. Teneiro is freed. She thanks 
Edgeworth by giving him a complimentary suitcase. How 

Edgeworth decides to stop and talk to Franziska von Karma 
before she leaves. She says another agent is working on 
the smuggling ring case with her, and she hints that 
Edgeworth may meet this person someday.

After that vague bit of foreshadowing, there is a more 
concrete bit of foreshadowing: Edgeworth gets a phone 
call from Ernest Armano, who wants him to help with a 
kidnapping case.

5. Case Three: The Kidnapped Turnabout

Edgeworth is working on the kidnapping case now. He has 
the money, and he's prepared to make the drop-off for Mr. 
Amano. But where is he?

He's in Gatewater Land, a theme park based off the Blue 
Badger. That's a very unlikely place for a kidnapping 
exchange, but Edgeworth isn't in charge here: the 
kidnapper is.

The kidnapper forces Edgeworth to go to the Stadium, then 
the Haunted House. He drops off the money is a room, as 
ordered, and exits. While he's standing guard outside the 
room, waiting for the police to show up, someone in a 
costume sneaks up behind him and knocks him unconscious. 
What a dramatic start to the case!

5a. Held Hostage in the Wild, Wild West

Edgeoworth wakes up, tied up in a strange room. Oh no! 
He's been taken hostage! He tries to escape, but he can't 
because the ropes are too tight.

Then, someone jumps into the room to free him. It's Kay 
Faraday, the Great Thief Yatagarasu. Wait, THE 
Yatagarasu? Really? The famous great thief just happened 
to be strolling by, and she decided to help Edgeworth. 
That's kind of hard to believe, especially because 
Yatagarasu is such a professional, and this girl 

Talk to Kay about everything you can, which is pretty 
much limited to the Yatagarasu. Once that's done, it's 
time to escape...except Kay wasn't smart and came in 
without any idea how to get back out again. Looks like 
it's up to Edgeworth's logic and investigation skills to 
figure out how to leave this room.

Examine the cell phone on the tarp to start a cutscene 
where Edgeworth calls Detective Gumshoe. The call is 
interrupted by Interpol Agent Shi-Long Lang, who 
basically says the situation is Edgeworth's fault, so he 
won't help at all. What a meanie!

What you want to do now is basically examine everything 
in order to get all sorts of information and logic. 
Examining the badger head on the ground gets you 
information about the Bad Badger. Examining the sign on 
the ground gets you information about the Badger Photo 
Rally. And examining the boxes gets you the Blue Badger 
Bible, as well as some logic about costumes.

While examining the boxes, you might notice that there's 
a key in the upper/left. Grab that key because it might 
come in handy.

Examine the lockers on the far left side of the room to 
get a piece of logic about the lockers. Examine the beam 
Edgeworth was tied to get a piece of logic about the 

Once all that investigation is done, talk to Kay about 
the kidnapping. She tells you that the kidnappers were in 
the next room. She then steps aside so Edgeworth can look 
into the next room, so do so.

In the next room, Edgeworth sees a trap door and gets a 
piece of logic.

It's LOGIC TIME! The trap door in the other room is held 
in place by a hook...there's a similar hook in the room 
they're in now...what if the hook in this room is ALSO 
designed to hold open a trap door? Connect "the beam I 
was tied to" to "open floor panel", and Edgeworth 
searches for a trap door.

Aha! There IS a trap door in this room! Unfortunately, 
it's locked. We have a small key, so connect "tiny key" 
to "underground entrance" in Logic. Edgeworth then 
decides to try using the key on the locked trap door. 

The trap door is now unlocked, but it doesn't lead 
anywhere useful. It just leads to an empty room with a 
ladder. The ladder can be moved from one place to 
another, so Edgeworth adds this information to Logic.

Open up Logic one last time, and connect the "underground 
ladder" with the "lockers". Using the ladder, Edgeworth 
and Kay can easily get on top of the lockers to reach the 
open window. And of course, that's just what they do. 


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Kay about the great thief.
Talk to Kay about the Yatagarasu
Examine Edgeworth's cell phone.
Examine the Bad Badger head.
Examine the photo rally sign.
Examine the boxes.
Examine the key near the boxes.
Examine the lockers on the far left.
Examine the beam Edgeworth was tied to.
Talk to Kay about the kidnapping.
Examine the door to the room.
Examine the trap door.
Using Logic, connect "the beam I was tied to" with "open 
floor panel".
Examine the trap door.
Using logic, connect "tiny key" with "underground 
Using logic, connect "underground ladder" with "lockers"


Edgeworth and Kay land in the Wild, Wild West. Detective 
Gumshoe shows up and apologizes for letting Edgeworth out 
of his sight, as well as getting Interpol involved in the 
case. Speaking of which...

99 Interpol agents are here, along with their leader, 
Shi-Long Lang and his assistant, Shih-Na. Shi-Long Lang 
has the most successful arrest record in Interpol, and 
he's working with Franziska von Karma to stop the 
smuggling ring we learned about in Case #2.

He's also the person we called on Edgeworth's cell phone 
not too long ago. Agent Lang exchanges cards with 
Edgeworth as a sign of friendship, but he doesn't like 
prosecutors, so he orders Edgeworth off the case. He even 
goes so far as to mock America's court system! The nerve!

Well, since there's no official investigation going on 
now, it's a good time to chat with Detective Gumshoe. 
Gumshoe talks about how Agent Lang basically showed up 
out of nowhere to assume control over the police in this 
kidnapping situation, and Gumshoe talks about Kay 
Faraday. Poor Gumshoe is upset that Kay has stolen his 
role as Edgeworth's sidekick, but then again, Kay IS a 
thief, so that's to be expected.

Talk to Kay about everything. She talks more about the 
Yatagarasu, and what to do next.

Ernest Amano arrives on the scene. He's the father of the 
man who was kidnapped. He has huge earlobes and extensive 
international connections. He is also upset to learn that 
the kidnappers took the money, but failed to return his 

Talk Ernest to learn more about the case. His son, Lance, 
is 21 and popular with women. His best friend, Oliver 
Deacon, the Amano family butler, disappeared around the 
time Lance was kidnapped. Mysterious!

Edgeworth resolves to solve this case, and since Gumshoe 
is taken away, it looks like Kay is our assistant right 

Head to the right, where we have a witness. It's the Blue 
Badger! Talk to him to learn that he is really Mike 
Meekins, inept police officer! Talk to him about 
everything to learn that he has been patrolling the park 
all day, and he has specifically been in this area for 
the past hour. He has not, however, seen anyone 
suspicious besides a second Blue Badger.

Wait...a second Blue Badger? That contradicts some of our 
evidence! Namely, it contradicts the Badger Photo Rally, 
which says there's only ONE of each badger in the park 
right now. Present the Badger Photo Rally when prompted 
to prove this, and get some Logic about a second Blue 

Head left, where Edgeworth finds a series of footprints 
in the dirt, thanks to the light rain. They might belong 
to the kidnapper, but what shoes did the kidnapper wear?

LOGIC TIME! Connect "costumes" with "a second Blue 
Badger". Obviously, the kidnapper escaped from the 
costume room disguised as the Blue Badger.

And since we know THIS, we know what kind of shoes the 
kidnapper wore. While still in Logic, connect "costumed 
escape" with "What kind of shoes?" Clearly, the 
kidnapper's shoes were badger feet. Examine the 
footprints again, and Kay follows the badger footprints.

The footprints lead right to...Officer Meekins???

No, wait, they lead to the garage behind him. Right. 
Examine the garage door, and Meekins will open it for 
you. Inside is the Blue Badger's car and...the dead body 
of Oliver Deacon?

Oh no! Mr. Amano's butler was killed! And recently, it 
seems. Let's examine the scene of the murder. Check out 
the blood wound to notice two things. One, there are two 
wounds, made by one bullet. Two, there is no blood here 
in the garage, even though it is a bloody murder. 
Clearly, the murder took place elsewhere.

Examine the necklace that Mr. Deacon is wearing. It looks 
rather fancy, but the name engraved on it is not Mr. 
Deacon's. That's a contradiction, so deduce at the 
necklace and present the preliminary findings as 
contradictory to the necklace.

Whose necklace is it? What happened to the kidnapper that 
was in the garage? Where was Mr. Deacon killed? The 
investigation will have to continue...or not. 
Investigation complete!


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Gumshoe about everything.
Talk to Kay about everything.
Talk to Ernest Amano about everything.
Talk to the Blue Badger about everything.
Present the Badger Photo Rally.
Examine the footprints on the left.
Using Logic, connect "Costumes" with "A 2nd Blue Badger".
Using Logic, connect "Costumed escape" with "What kind of 
Examine the footprints.
Examine the garage door.
Examine the blood.
Examine the necklace.
Deduce, using the necklace
Present the preliminary findings.


Lauren Paups appears on the scene. She is the girlfriend 
of Lance, the man who was kidnapped. She also has no 
sense of inner monologue, and it is apparent that she is 
romantically challenged. She'll become more important 
later on in this case; for now, all you need to do is 
know who she is.

Agent Lang reappears with his assistant, Shih-na. He 
heard about the dead body, and he's here to investigate. 
The first thing he does is arrest Officer Meekins.

Edgeworth interrupts, because he doesn't want to see 
Meekins get arrested without good reason. Besides, 
Meekins is clearly not a murderer or a kidnapper. He may 
be incompetent, but he is definitely good-natured.

Agent Lang finds Edgeworth's outburst amusing, and he 
agrees to give testimony as to why Meekins is guilty.

Cross-Examination: Shi-Long Lang's Logic

Agent Lang can tell the victim was shot with a gun, and 
it's pretty hard to get a gun...unless you're a police 
officer like Mike Meekins.

Agent Lang talks about the philosophy of detainment, 
which originated in his home country of Zheng Fa about a 
thousand years ago. It was founded by Lang Zi, Agent 
Lang's honorable ancestor.

Press the last statement of the testimony, the one about 
Officer Meekins being a member of law enforcement. 
Edgeworth reminds Agent Lang that Officer Meekins' gun 
hasn't even been looked at yet. Lang asks to see Meekins' 
gun, and Officer Meekins admits that he lost it. Uh oh!

This causes Lang to put a new statement into his 
testimony. He says that Officer Meekins waited for the 
victim to arrive at this spot before killing him. Well, 
we know that the garage is NOT the scene of the murder, 
so present the preliminary findings at this statement to 
disprove it.

Lang laughs at Edgeworth's logic and agrees that he is 
right. Something is odd, though; why is Mike Meekins here 
at all? After all, he wasn't assigned to the Wild Wild 
West as part of his police duties. Meekins is required to 


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "Not unless you're a member of law 
enforcement like Officer Meekins, isn't that right?"
Present the preliminary findings at the statement 
"Officer Meekins ambushed the victim in this garage and 
killed him here with his gun!"

Cross-Examination: Meekins's Testimony

Meekins was supposed to guard the front gate, but he got 
so caught up in the role of entertaining children that he 
lost track of what he was doing. Eventually, he ended up 
here at the Wild, Wild West by means of the Blue 

Present the Blue Badgermobile at the statement about 
looking for kidnappers in the Blue Badgermobile. There's 
a slight contradiction here. Meekins is claiming that he 
was out with the Blue Badgermobile until recently. 
But...the Blue Badgermobile is here in the garage. What's 
up with that?

Meekins says the Blue Badgermobile was stolen recently. 
Lang doubts this. He thinks it's more likely that the 
Blue Badgermobile was used by Meekins to transport the 
dead body. Lang then arrests Meekins and orders Edgeworth 
and Kay out of the area.

5b. The Stadium

Our heroes reconvene at the front gate, where they 
reaffirm that they are dead-set on solving the murder 
mystery. Detective Gumshoe shows up to tell Edgeworth 
that they found a witness in the stadium, then Gumshoe is 
taken away.

Edgeworth and Kay rush to the stadium, where they 
meet...Ema Skye, scientific investigator! She likes 
Edgeworth, and she was a witness in the fifth case of the 
first Phoenix Wright game, the case where the Blue Badger 
character was introduced.
Unfortunately, Ema's role in this game is very small. 
Talk to her about everything now, because, well, you 
won't talk to her that much later. You see, as it turns 
out, Ema is NOT the witness we're looking for. Darn.

Examine the pink badgermobile to have the witness appear. 
It's the Pink Badger herself. Talk to her to learn that 
she's...Wendy Oldbag! Edgeworth's elderly stalker! The 
one who makes up all sorts of crazy lies as an excuse to 
get close to Edgeworth! Uh oh!

Talk to Wendy Oldbag to learn that she is the witness 
Edgeworth has been looking for. Great. The witness ends 
up being one of the least reliable person in the park.

Wendy Oldbag gives a testimony, which is probably full of 
lies. Edgeworth hasn't really started his investigation 
here yet, so he can't disprove the lies in the testimony. 
Instead, you just have to press every statement of the 
testimony, and Edgeworth decides he'd better investigate.

Kay then pulls out the Little Thief, a holograph 
projector, in order to help recreate the crime scene. 
That's useful!


So, to summarize this part of the game... 

Talk to Ema Skye about everything.
Examine the Pink Badgermobile.
Talk to the Pink Badger.
Talk to Wendy Oldbag about everything.
Press the statement about the two men.
Press the statement about a gunshot. 


The investigation begins, but the crime scene recreation 
isn't complete yet! Examine the blue body to find a 
contradiction right off the bat. Kay doesn't see the 
contradiction, so present the murder notes to her. It was 
a very bloody murder, but there was no blood at the crime 

The question of the missing blood is added to Logic. 
Sounds like it's LOGIC TIME! Open up Logic and connect 
the two things there: the lack of blood at the crime 
scene, and the possibility that the victim was wearing a 
blue badger character costume.

Edgeworth concludes the victim WAS dressed in a costume, 
which is why there's no blood here. He needs to prove 
this theory, however, so talk to Ema Skye. She works her 
scientific investigation magic to prove that there are 
Blue Badger footprints in this area.

Investigation complete.


So, to sum up this bit of investigation....

Examine the blue body.
Present the murder notes.
Using Logic, connect "Why is there no blood?" with 
"Victim was kidnapper?"
Talk to Ema about footprint analysis.


Now, Edgeworth has enough information to find the problem 
with Wendy Oldbag's testimony. She said the murderer and 
the victim were both average Joes and completely 
uninteresting. Did she NOT notice that one of the two 
people was wearing a Blue Badger costume?

At the statement that says she saw the two men, present 
the victim's costume. Confronted with this information, 
Oldbag admits that she saw the murder...from a seat in 
the second tier balcony, which is too far away to see 
anything, especially if your eyesight is weak like 

It's not a complete loss, however! Oldbag gives Edgeworth 
a new piece of logic: the fact that the two men were in 
the shadow of the stage. 

Examine the stage on the left. The stage has been broken 
down, so it is not all there anymore. This is added to 

Edgeworth has two pieces of logic about the stage,'s LOGIC TIME! Using Logic, connect the two pieces 
of information, and Edgeworth deduces that the stage was 
still set up during the time of the murder. Kay resets 
the hologram display to account for this.

There is an obvious error in Kay's recreation: the 
murdering red person is standing in the stage. Examine 
it, and Kay resets the parameters of her device so the 
killer is standing on top of the stage.

Investigation complete.


To summarize this bit of investigation:

Present the victim's costume at the statement about two 
men facing each other.
Examine the stage.
Using Logic, connect "In the shadow of the stage" with 
"The stage was packed up".
Examine the red body.


Agent Lang shows up with Shih-Na at this point, and as 
you might have guessed, he's still an antagonist. He 
gives back-handed thanks to Edgeworth and Kay for their 
hard work in recreating the scene of the crime, then 
proceeds to explain how Mike Meekins is still the killer. 

Cross-Examination: Agent Lang's Logic

The stadium is the real scene of the crime. Officer 
Meekins stood on the stage, waiting for the victim to 
appear. He shot Mr. Deacon from on high!

Agent Lang's testimony is accurate, according to Kay's 
recreation. However, the recreation is not complete. If 
you check the murder notes one more time, you'll notice 
that the victim was shot from below, not from above. 
Clearly, there's been a slight mistake made here.

Present the murder notes at the statement about the 
victim being shot from on high. Agent Lang demands 
clarification, so say that the problem is with "the 
killer's and victim's locations". Somehow, the two were 

The recreation is then updated again. Now, the killer is 
standing below the stage, while the victim is standing on 
top of the stage. Since footprints don't lie, and the 
only footprints in this area belong to a Blue Badger 
character, that means the killer was in costume, just 
like the victim was.

So...both the killer and the victim were wearing Badger 
costumes. Presumably, both of them were in disguise, 
because they were both working as part of the kidnapping 
plot. Agent Lang agrees, but he does not think it 
exonerates Officer Meekins.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Present the murder notes at the statement about the 
victim being shot from on high.
Select "the killer's and the victim's locations".

Cross-Examination: Another Bit of Proof

Agent Lang says that there are tire marks left on the 
ground here, tires from a Blue Badgermobile. Clearly, 
Officer Meekins performed the murder here, then 
transported the body to the Wild, Wild West afterwards.

Agent Lang's theory _does_ make sense, in that it 
explains how the body was transported from the stadium to 
the Wild, Wild West. However, Officer Meekins' car could 
not have been the one to do this; as the picture of the 
car in the garage shows, its tires are clean. Therefore, 
it is not the car that left muddy tire marks.

So, present the Blue Badgermobile at the statement "Then, 
he used the car to move the body to the garage in the 
Wild, Wild West Area." Then, select the clean tires. 
Edgeworth will explain his theory.

Well, if the car that transported the body wasn't Officer 
Meekins', whose was it? Was it the second car, belonging 
to Ms. Oldbag? She says no. By elimination, it must have 
been the third car, belonging to whoever was wearing the 
Proto Badger suit.

A stranger then appears. It's...Lance Amano! He escaped 
from the kidnappers! How fortunate! Mr. Amano collapses 
on the ground.

Agent Lang then kicks Edgeworth and Kay out of the area 
(again). Ema and Ms. Oldbag are taken by the police to 
give statements about what they witnessed, so we won't 
see them again in this case. Bye, Ema and Ms. Oldbag!


To summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Present the Blue Badgermobile at the statement "Then, he 
used the car to move the body to the garage in the Wild, 
Wild West Area."
Select the car's tire

5c. The Kidnappers' Hideout

Edgeworth and Kay return to the Wild, Wild West. It's now 
open for them to investigate! They can also exit through 
the right-hand side of the screen to reach the park 
entrance, where you can see a cameo appearance by Phoenix 
Wright, Maya Fey and Pearl Fey. Poor Phoenix! Demoted to 
a non-speaking cameo. How the mighty have fallen.

The important thing to do now, however, is to talk to the 
characters here. Both Mr. Amano and Lauren are here. 
Needless to say, they are quite happy that Lance is now 
safe and sound.

Mr. Amano thanks Edgeworth for all his help, and he gives 
Edgeworth one of Lance's love letters. Um...Mr. Amano, 
that's not a love letter! It's a collections check from a 
loan company! I guess Lance owes money to the Tender 
Lender Company...

When you talk to Lauren, she confirms the fact that she 
is romantically-challenged; for example, she believes 
that Lance loves her, because he gave her a piece of 

Lauren talks a bit about her father, an Amano employee 
who used to travel around the world on Pegasus, an 
airplane. He disappeared ten years ago, and she worked 
for the Amanos ever since.

Lauren was not told about the kidnapping, but she says 
she knows about it due to her women's intuition. I think 
she's lying about that...

Kay asks Edgeworth where he wants to go next. Choose 
"Kidnapper's Hideout". If the killer is a kidnapper, 
there could be a clue in the hideout. The hideout is 
right over here, behind the officer who is standing 
Talk to the officer in blue. He lets Edgeworth into the 
hideout, per the request of Detective Gumshoe. He also 
gives Edgeworth a dossier on Colin Devorae, a criminal 
who escaped from jail. This is the true identity of the 
murder victim in this case.

Apparently, "Oliver Deacon" isn't a real person; it's 
just an alias Colin Devorae came up with. Does his death 
have anything to do with his incarceration ten years ago, 
or is this just a coincidence?

The officer further tells Edgeworth that the door to the 
hideout was locked somehow; it took ten officers to break 
the door down.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Ernest Amano about everything.
Talk to Lauren Paups about everything.
Select "Kidnapper's Hideout"
Talk to the police officer.


Our heroes enter the hideout, hoping to find some clues 
that will help them identify the kidnappers.

First, we'll need information for Logic! Examine the 
dumpster at the bottom of the screen for a piece of Logic 
about the costumes. Examine the item on the floor, near 
the door, to have a piece of Logic about the broken prop 
sword. Finally, examine the door, and specifically look 
at the doorknob, for a piece of Logic about the door 
being unlocked.

Good, good, now for information about the kidnappers. 
Check out the eating area in the upper left. Look at the 
three chairs, then the three cups. That's enough Logic 
for now!

Connect the three chairs to the three cups. Edgeworth 
concludes that there are three kidnappers.

Connect the broken prop sword to the unlocked door. 
Clearly, the sword was used to keep the door in place, 
not the door's lock.

The Proto Badger then shows up to check on the costumes. 
He finds that a Bad Badger costume is missing! Dramatic 
music plays, so this must be important to the plot.

Edgeworth asks for more information. Both Bad Badger 
costumes should be in the costume storage room, because 
the Bad Badger costume is rarely used. In fact, it's only 
used during a stage show.

Kay wonders if there is a fourth kidnapper, because four 
costumes were stolen by the kidnappers. Edgeworth thinks 
this is unlikely. Select the Pink Badger costume in the 
lower/right to show this is the case. The kidnappers 
decided to steal a Proto Badger, a Blue Badger and two 
Bad Badgers. If there were four kidnappers, wouldn't they 
have completed the set by taking the fourth, Pink Badger, 

Edgeworth adds the information about the Bad Badger to 
Logic, which means that, once's LOGIC TIME!

There are only two things in Logic right now, making this 
an easy connection. Connect the Bad Badger costumes to 
the dumpster of old costumes. Edgeworth looks inside the 
dumpster, and he finds the missing Bad Badger costume. 
Both the head and gun are missing from the costume, 

Deduce at the hand which is missing a gun, then present 
the Blue Badger Bible. Edgeworth then takes note of the 
missing gun. Of course, the gun is loaded only with 

The investigation ends here, and Edgeworth and Kay leave 
the area. Detective Gumshoe shows up, saying a Blue 
Badger costume was just found at the park entrance. Our 
heroes run there to see what's going on.


To sum up this bit of investigation...

Examine the dumpster for old costumes.
Examine the prop sword on the floor, near the floor.
Examine the doorknob.
Examine the three chairs.
Examine the three cups.
Using Logic, connect the three chairs to the three cups.
Using Logic, connect the broken prop sword to the door.
Talk with the Proto Badger.
Choose the Pink Badger costume.
Using Logic, connect the Bad Badger to Costume Pieces.
Deduce at the right hand, and present the Blue Badger 

5d. Confronting the Killer

Edgeworth, Kay and Gumshoe head to the park entrance. The 
costume is a Blue Badger costume, and it was recently 
discovered. It's very easy to see what part of the 
costume needs examining.

Examine the neck hole. This gives you a pendant, which is 
very similar to the one found on Mr. Deacon's corpse.

Agent Lang then appears with Shih-na, Lauren and Lance. 
Lang takes one look at the pendant, and he finds Lauren's 
name on it. Does that mean...Lauren is a kidnapper?

Lauren admits to being one of the kidnappers. Lang 
decides that means she is also the killer, because the 
killer was a kidnapper, and he decides to end the 
investigation. (Officer Meekins was cleared of all 
crimes, offscreen.)

Lauren confesses to the murder, but Edgeworth finds this 
to be a little too convenient. He demands that she give 
testimony about the murder. 


To get through this part of the game...

Examine the neck hole.

Cross-Examination: Ms. Paups' Confession

Mr. Deacon made up the kidnapping plan, but as soon as 
they got the money, he turned on Lauren and tried to kill 

Woah! Mr. Deacon tried to kill her? That's very 
interesting, but that series of events doesn't really 
follow from the evidence because, as you may have figured 
out, Lauren is really Mr. Deacon's daughter. She has an 
unknown father, he has an unknown daughter, and they have 
matching pendants, after all.

Go to the statement about Mr. Deacon trying to kill her. 
Press it, then raise an objection. Present Mr. Deacon's 
pendant and then Lauren's pendant. The two of them fit 
together to form Pegasus, the name of the plane her 
father used to ride.

Present the dossier on Colin Devorae, and highlight the 
word "daughter".

Clearly, Mr. Devorae pretended to be Mr. Deacon, in order 
to get close to his daughter. He couldn't reveal his 
identity to her, though, because he was a criminal on the 
run from the law.

Lang begins to laugh at this point, and he offers another 
interpretation of events.


To get through this cross-examination...

Press the statement "...Mr. Deacon turned on me, and 
tried to kill me!"
Select "Raise an objection".
Present Mr. Deacon's Pendant.
Present Ms. Paups's Pendant.
Present Colin Devorae Dossier.
Select the word "daughter".

Cross-Examination: Another Possibility

What if Lauren and the victim are related, but they both 
knew it? They were working together, as family members, 
to commit the kidnapping.

Lang's theory is wrong, in that his information is not 
up-to-date. He still thinks there are two kidnappers. The 
recent investigation in the kidnappers' hideout shows 
that there were really THREE kidnappers.

So, go to the statement about "the two of them", and 
present the stolen costumes (which shows there are three 
kidnappers, not two). Edgeworth thinks the third 
kidnapper is the real mastermind behind the kidnapping, 
and he knew that Lauren and the victim were related.

Who is this third kidnapper? Lance Amano. Present his 
picture at this juncture. That's right, Lance faked his 
own kidnapping. Lance denies this, so Edgeworth requests 
some testimony about his overly convenient escape from 
the kidnappers.


To sum up this cross-examination...

Present the stolen costumes at the statement "And the two 
of them made good use of their meetings to plan this 
little kidnapping."
Present Lance Amano.

Cross-Examination: Lance's Testimony

Lance was kidnapped and held hostage. He was blindfolded 
the whole time, but when it started raining, the 
kidnappers left. This allowed him to make his escape.

Press the statement about Lance escaping. He gives more 
information about how he escaped, and he says he used the 
underground passageway, because the door was locked.

From our earlier investigation, we know the door was not 
locked. The kidnappers just put a sword in the handle, to 
make it impossible to open from the outside. Someone from 
the inside could have easily removed the sword.

Present the prop sword at the statement about the locked 
door. Edgeworth explains that Lance only made it seem 
like the door was locked, because it was a fake 

Lang interrupts and asks for a motive. Why would Lance 
fake his own kidnapping? Present the love letter, which 
shows that Lance has massive debts. He needed the ransom 
money to pay off Tender Loan.

Lance confesses that he is the third kidnapper. But of 
course, he doesn't admit to the murder. Instead, he 
follows what Lauren said earlier, and he claims that the 
victim tried to kill Lauren, at which point, she killed 
him in self-defense.

Lauren interrupts. She is upset because, according to 
this series of events, she killed her father.


To sum up this cross-examination...

Press the statement "I made my escape and ran away from 
that room as fast as I could."
Present the broken prop sword at the statement "The door 
leading outside was locked tight, so I had to use the 
underground passageway."
Present the love letter.

Cross-Examination: Chain of Events

The Bad Badger was at the stadium, with a gun and the 
ransom money. The badger aimed his gun at her, and she 
shot him with the gun she got from Lance.

Press the statement about the badger aiming the gun at 
her. She will clarify with a new statement, which says 
the gun was in the victim's left hand.

Present the Dossier at this statement. The victim was 
right-handed, not left-handed! Agent Lang interrupts, 
saying that the Bad Badger HAD to have the gun in his 
left hand. The costume comes with a fake gun (only 
capable of firing blanks) tied to the right hand. 
Therefore, the only hand that the victim could hold the 
gun in was the left hand.

However, the victim was pulling a suitcase, while holding 
the gun. hand had the real gun, one hand had the 
fake gun, and one hand had the suitcase? That's just 
plain confusing. Clearly, there's a mistake here.

Edgeworth comes up with a solution: the person was not 
wearing a Bad Badger costume. He was wearing a Blue 
Badger costume, with the Bad Badger head on top. After 
all, we found a Bad Badger head, all by itself.

Select "both are correct", then present the Bad Badger 
head. Select the Proto Badger, and Edgeworth explains his 
theory in more detail. Lance told Lauren that Oliver 
Deacon had gone rogue, and he gave her a gun to protect 
herself. Later, he disguised himself as Oliver Deacon, 
using the Bad Badger's head. He went to Lauren, scared 
her, and she shot him in self-defense. It was all a set-
up to make her think that she was the killer!

Supporting this theory is the fact that Lance is the only 
left-handed kidnapper.

Lang brings up a possible problem. If Lance was shot by 
Lauren, why is he completely unharmed? Present the model 
gun at this point. Lance didn't give her a REAL gun; he 
gave her the fake gun that only shoots blanks.

Lauren interrupts at this point. She knows for a fact 
that the victim went rogue. After all, she saw him tied 
up at one point. 


To sum up this cross-examination...

Press the statement "But that Badger pointed his gun at 
me, aiming to shoot me dead!"
Present Colin Devorae Dossier at the statement "But that 
Badger pointed the gun in his left hand at me, aiming to 
shoot me dead!"
Select "Both are correct".
Present the Bad Badger's Head.
Select the Proto Badger.
Present the missing model gun.

Cross-Examination: What Ms. Paups Saw

By the time Lauren returned to the hideout, Lance had 
already subdued Mr. Deacon and tied him up, in the other 
room. She saw him.

Press the statement about Mr. Deacon being tied up in the 
other room. That's the room Edgeworth was held hostage 
in, if you don't remember. She didn't get a close look, 
but she knows it's Mr. Deacon because he was wearing a 
Bad Badger head. This is added to her testimony.

Press the new statement about the Bad Badger head. Select 
"raise an objection", the present the Bad Badger head. 
Lance fooled her into thinking someone else was Mr. 
Deacon, twice, by using the Bad Badger head.

But who was the person who was tied up? That was Miles 
Edgeworth. Select Edgeworth at this opportunity, and he 
explains. Edgeworth was tied up in that room, at the 
time. It was a simple matter for Lance to put a Bad 
Badger head on Edgeworth's unconscious body.

Why did Lance go through all the trouble of tricking 
Lauren? He wanted her (and everyone else) to think the 
murder took place at the stadium, long after the murder 
really took place elsewhere. That way, everyone would 
think she is the murderer, not him.


To sum up this cross-examination...

Press the statement "He had tied Mr. Deacon securely to 
the beam in the room next door."
Press the statement "The captive had a Bad Badger's head 
on, so I'm absolutely sure it was Mr. Deacon".
Select "Raise an objection".
Present the Bad Badger's Head.
Select "Miles Edgeworth".


Ernest Amano shows up, with new evidence: the murder 
weapon and the victim's costume. Conveniently, this 
evidence makes his son look innocent of all charges.

Edgeworth decides to examine this evidence. Look at three 
things: the gun, the bullet hole, and the neck hole.

The bullet hole proves the shooting took place at close 
range. The neck hole has a lot of mirror fragments 
inside. The gun is, well...a gun. It gets added to 

Lance testifies about the new evidence.


To sum up this bit of the game...

Examine the bullet hole.
Examine the gun.
Examine the neck hole.

Cross-Examination: Decisive Evidence

There are fingerprints on the gun, which prove that 
Lauren is the killer. But it's not really her fault; she 
shot him in self-defense.

Press the first statement. Edgeworth will object to the 
fact that Lauren's fingerprints are on the murder weapon. 
After all, she was wearing a Blue Badger costume at the 
time of the alleged shooting. Present the stolen costumes 
to prove this.

Lauren talks about the only time she touched the gun with 
her bare hands, which was at a completely unrelated time. 
So the fact that her fingerprints are on the gun is just 
a coincidence.

Edgeworth then explains that the scene at the stadium was 
just a set-up. Edgeworth suspected this for a while, but 
the bullet hole in the costume proves this, because it 
shows the murder was at point blank range.

Present the victim's costume, then the bullet hole.

Edgeworth is challenged to locate the real crime scene. 
It took place at the Haunted House. Select the haunted 
house, then present the mirror fragments from the 
victim's costume to support this idea.

We have to go to the Haunted House to investigate, but 
unfortunately for us, Ernest Amano has just purchased the 
Haunted House. He refuses to let us investigate there, as 
it is now his private property. Oh no!


To sum up this cross-examination...

Press the statement "Make no mistake. There are 
fingerprints on that murderous gun."
Select "Raise an objection".
Present the stolen costumes.
Present the victim's costume.
Select the bullet hole.
Select the haunted house.
Present the mirror fragments. 

5e. The Haunted House

Edgeworth can't investigate the haunted house, the real 
scene of the crime. However, Kay Faraday still has the 
Little Thief. She uses it to recreate the crime scene.

Edgeworth recaps the situation. A Blue Badger mannequin 
is at the end of the hallway. Edgeworth entered a room, 
dropped off the money, then returned to the hallway. At 
this point, he was attacked by the Blue Badger.

Select the green dot that represents the Blue Badger 
character. The most likely explanation is that the 
mannequin wasn't a mannequin at all, but a kidnapper in 
disguise. Lance says it was a Bad Badger character, 
because he wants everyone to think Mr. Deacon is the one 
who knocked Edgeworth unconscious. 

Look at the Bad Badger. Kay has a blank weapon, because 
she doesn't know what the real weapon is. Well, Edgeworth 
was hit on the right side of the head, and there's a 
plausible weapon in the hallway: the sword.

Present the broken prop sword here. Select "test with 
Luminol" as the means for proving the sword is the weapon 
used to attack Edgeworth. The test is performed, and the 
blood is on the left-hand side of the sword. Therefore, 
the attacker hit Edgeworth on the right side of his head 
with the left side of the sword.

Wait...does that make sense? After all, the attacker held 
the sword in his left hand. It's kind of difficult to hit 
someone with the left side of a sword, if you're holding 
it in your left hand. Did the attacker use a backhanded 
attack or something?

Deduce at the left hand of the attacker, and then present 
the sword. Kay figures that the way to clear up this 
problem is by switching the weapon from the left hand to 
the right, but that doesn't work, either. Why? Present 
the Blue Badger Bible to show that the Bad Badger has a 
gun in his right hand.

So there's a contradiction, no matter which hand held the 
sword. Lance then speaks up and admits that he is the one 
who attacked Edgeworth, not Mr. Deacon. Lance used his 
right hand to attack, in an attempt to frame Mr. Deacon.

The hologram is updated, to show that the Proto Badger 
was the one who attacked Edgeworth.

Agent Lang interrupts, telling our heroes about a trick 
to the Haunted House. It has a disappearing badger trick, 
where a Blue Badger mannequin disappears. The mannequin 
at the end of this hallway is just that: a mannequin, not 
an attacker in disguise.

Kay updates the hologram again. Now, we have the problem 
of trying to figure out where the attacker was hiding, in 
this hallway.

Look at the Blue Badger mannequin. Wait a second...the 
belt is backwards! Deduce at the belt and present the 
Blue Badger Bible. The fact that the belt is in reverse 
is added to Logic.

Look at the mirror on the wall, near the Blue Badger. We 
get Logic about the mirror shards. They don't match the 
mirror shards found in the victim's costume, oddly 

Now that we have two pieces of Logic...


Using Logic, connect the two pieces of Logic. Clearly, 
the mannequin is in reverse, because it's a mirror image. 
The hallway has a rotating mirror wall!

Present the Gatewater Land Pamphlet to explain why it has 
a rotating mirror wall. It's so they can do the 
Disappearing Badger trick. Simply rotate the wall, the 
badger "magically" disappears. Select "move the mirror-
wall" to explain this.

The mirror-wall trick might seem irrelevant, but it's 
not. It shows the hiding place of the attacker. The 
attacker was hiding behind the rotating wall!

All right, so that's just about everything. There is only 
one more thing to point out: where the victim's body was. 
It was in the far left, in the area that was hidden by 
the rotating mirror wall.

Kay then turns off the hologram.

What is the badger that Edgeworth saw, shortly before he 
was attacked? It was the victim's costume, so present the 
victim's costume at this juncture.

Edgeworth will now put all his conclusions together to 
make Lance Amano look guilty. Lance eventually confesses. 
Lance is arrested on the charge of murder, and Ernest 
Amano is also arrested, on the charge of tampering with 

Agent Lang then takes this opportunity to grill Ernest 
Amano about his connection to the smuggling ring. But 
then Prosecutor Portsman shows up and takes control of 
the case. He leaves with Amanos and Buddy Faith.

Lang then tries to insult Edgeworth, to no avail. Lang 
knows there is a corrupt prosecutor in this town, one who 
works for the smuggling ring and Ernest Amano. Well, it's 
not Edgeworth, so stop giving Edgeworth a hard time, 
Agent Lang!

After discussions with Shih-na and Lauren Paups, everyone 
leaves, except for Gumshoe, Kay and Edgeworth. Kay 
reminds Edgeworth of the first time she met Edgeworth and 
Gumshoe, seven years ago, in the second KG-8 Incident...


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Select the green dot.
Examine the Bad Badger.
Present the broken prop sword.
Select "Test with Luminol"
Deduce at the left hand.
Present the broken prop sword.
Present the Blue Badger Bible.
Examine the Blue Badger.

6. Turnabout Reminiscence 

Edgeworth remembers an episode seven years ago, when he 
first met Kay Faraday and Detective Gumshoe. Edgeworth 
was scheduled to be the prosecutor at his very first 
trial that day...

And what a trial it was! Byrne Faraday, the prosecutor, 
was going up against Calisto Yew, the defense attorney, 
in the trial of Mack Rell. Mack was caught performing the 
murder on tape, but Mack says he's not responsible for 
the crime. He was ordered to the kill the 
Byrne Faraday!

6a. A Double Murder

The case begins with Edgeworth in the courthouse. He has 
been selected to take control of the trial, away from 
Byrne Faraday.

Manfred von Karma steps into the room and talks with 
Edgeworth. Talk with him about everything to get an 
overview of the case.

The defendant, Mack Rell, was accused of murdering 
someone named Deid Mann in an embassy. The murder was 
caught on camera. Rell's defense is that he was ordered 
to commit the murder. Who ordered him to do it? The 
Yatagarasu, Byrne Faraday!

Here's where things get more complicated. People call 
this trial "The second KG-8 Incident". Three years ago, 
there was a case called the KG-8 Incident. This was back 
when Colin Devorae was arrested on smuggling charges. A 
woman named Cece Yew was going to testify against him, 
but she was killed shortly before she was supposed to 
appear in court.

The suspect in Yew's murder was Manny Coachen, who works 
at the embassy. Coachen was found innocent of all 
charges, because the evidence against him disappeared 
shortly before the trial.

You can see how Edgeworth's current trial and the KG-8 
incident are related. They both had Byrne Faraday as the 
leading prosecutor, and they both involve someone getting 
killed shortly before he or she appeared in court to 
testify against the smuggling ring.

The difference between the two cases is that the 
Yatagarasu is somehow mixed up in the current trial. The 
Yatagarasu visited the embassy, which is the scene of the 
murder, on the very day the murder occurred. That's most 
likely not a coincidence.

Young Kay Faraday shows up and trades Edgeworth a lot of 
coins for a dollar bill. Then, the trial begins!

Edgeworth and Manfred appear in court, but the defense 
lawyer doesn't. Byrne Faraday also fails to appear, even 
though he's scheduled to give the videotape of the murder 
to Edgeworth, so it can be used as evidence in the trial.

Detective Gumshoe runs in, saying that both Byrne Faraday 
and Mack Rell have been killed in Defendant Lobby #2.

Edgeworth goes the hallway that leads to the defendant 
lobby. He meets the defense attorney, the lead detective 
on the case, and Detective Gumshoe. Talk to all three of 
the characters about everything.

Gumshoe says that he was recently made a detective. He 
was assigned to guard the hallway, during the time of the 
murder. Gumshoe swears he didn't hear anything the whole 
time, until the murderous gunshot.

The woman in blue is Calisto Yew, the defense attorney. 
She has a bad habit of laughing uncontrollably, 
especially at Edgeworth's uppity manners. She doesn't 
have much to say.

Talk to Detective Badd, who is the main detective on the 
case. He is Detective Gumshoe's boss, and he was going to 
be a witness in the trial, due to his knowledge of the 

Badd tells Edgeworth about the double murder. Faraday was 
stabbed to death, and he was found with a gun in his 
hand. The other victim, Mack Rell, was shot and killed, 
and he was found with a bloody knife in his hand.

Apparently, Faraday shot Mack Rell around the same time 
that Mack Rell stabbed Faraday.

Manny Coachen, the suspect from the first KG-8 Incident, 
then appears to talk with Calisto Yew. The two of them 
leave to talk.

Manfred von Karma appears. He puts Edgeworth and his 
daughter Franziska in charge of the investigation. 
Detective Badd is not happy to have two children in 
charge of the investigation, but he lets them in. 
Franziska, of course, thinks she is better than 
Edgeworth, so she expects to solve the murder mystery 
before he does.


To get through this bit of investigation...

Talk to Manfred von Karma about everything.
Talk to Detective Gumshoe about everything.
Talk to Calisto Yew about everything.
Talk to Detective Badd about everything.


The investigation begins after some discussion. Badd 
tells Edgeworth about the murder weapons, which came from 
Faraday's bag of evidence. No one is sure where the knife 
came from, because he didn't declare the knife as a piece 
of evidence.

The current theory is that Faraday attacked Rell first.

You might as well begin the investigation by looking at 
everything you can, then looking at the corpses. The 
three things you need to look at are the television, the 
window near the television, and the table at the bottom 
of the screen.

When you look at the window, Edgeworth notes that it is 
open. There are also bars on the window. He adds this to 

When you look at the table at the bottom of the screen, 
Edgeworth notes that it is very clean and tidy. That's 
pretty odd, considering that the plastic bags on the 
table were scattered on the floor during Faraday and 
Rell's struggle. The suspiciously clean table is added to 

When you examine the television, you learn that the 
volume on it has been turned up all the way.

Examine the corpses, so you can see them in more detail. 
There are four things you need to examine here: the gun, 
the knife, the plastic bag with blood on it, and 
Faraday's ink-stained hand.

When you examine the knife, Edgeworth adds it to 
evidence. When you examine the gun, Edgeworth adds it to 

When you examine the bloody bag, it gets added to Logic. 
Why are there empty evidence bags strewn around the 
ground, and why is one covered in blood? Does it show 
that the two victims were fighting?

When you examine Faraday's ink-stained hand, you learn 
that the ink stain is, well, made from ink. This is added 
to Logic.

Once you examine the four things--the gun, the knife, the 
bloody bag and Faraday's ink-stained hand--the two bodies 
get turned over. Now, you can look at three new things: 
Faraday's pocket and the two fatal wounds.

When you look at Mr. Rell's chest wound, Edgeworth notes 
that there are no burn marks on his clothes. Ergo, he was 
shot from a distance of a yard or two.

When you look at Faraday's wound, Edgeworth sends someone 
to check that the knife in Rell's hand is the murder 

When you examine Faraday's pocket, you find a fountain 
pen inside. This is added to Logic.

LOGIC TIME! Connect the ink stain with the pen, and 
Edgeworth deduces that the pen made the ink stain on 
Faraday's hand. Well, if the stain is on his left hand, 
he must be left-handed.

Also in logic, connect the neat and tidy table with the 
plastic bags. Edgeworth makes special note of the bloody 
bag. The lab guy investigates it, and it turns out the 
blood is Mr. Faraday's. The bag is added to evidence.

Edgeworth figures out a contradiction in the scene. 
Deduce at Faraday's right hand, the one with the gun in 
it. Then, present the fountain pen. If he's left-handed, 
why did he fire a gun with his right hand?

Investigation complete. The autopsy report comes in. 
Then, Franziska speaks up, saying she's solved the entire 
case. Edgeworth decides to cross-examine her explanation.


To summarize this bit of examination...

Examine the window.
Examine the television.
Examine the table.
Examine the dead bodies.
Examine the gun.
Examine the knife.
Examine the plastic bag with blood on it.
Examine Faraday's ink-stained hand.
Examine Faraday's wound.
Examine Rell's wound.
Examine Faraday's pocket.
Using Logic, connect "Ink stain" with "Fountain pen in 
Using Logic, connect "Neat and tidy table" with "Plastic 
bags strewn about".
Deduce at Faraday's hand, which is holding the gun.

Cross-Examination: What Happened

Faraday died instantly. Rell survived for a few seconds, 
during which he stole the knife from Faraday and stabbed 
the man.

Press the third statement to get a new piece of 
testimony, about the violent struggle between the two 
men. At this statement, present Gumshoe's testimony, 
which says he heard nothing at all. Why didn't their 
struggle make any noise?

An alternate course of events is offered. What if there 
was no struggle? Maybe Rell instigated the incident by 
taking the knife from Faraday's bag. Is that likely?

Select "Yes, something is off." The new scenario is 
unlikely, because Faraday had to have attacked first. 
Prove this by presenting the crime scene notes. These 
show that Faraday died instantly, so he couldn't have 
counterattacked Rell.

Franziska reinforces her original theory. Rell was 
attacked first. He counterattacked, and killed Faraday 
instantly. He died shortly afterwards.
There's still something wrong with this scenario. Select 
"the order the bodies fell". Rell clearly died before 
Faraday, as his body is under Faraday's.

Franziska bounces back quickly, though, and she comes up 
with a new explanation.


To summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "And Mr. Rell, while on the brink of 
death, stole Mr. Faraday's knife and stabbed him."
Present Detective Gumshoe's Testimony at the statement 
"They struggled, and Mr. Rell used the last of his 
strength to counterattack Mr. Faraday."
Select "Yes, something is off."
Present the crime scene notes.
Select "The order the bodies fell".

Cross-Examination: What Happened, Pt. 2

The order the bodies fell in was complete chance. They 
attacked each other near-simultaneously, after all. Which 
body ended up on the bottom doesn't matter.

Well, that's a short testimony. Press the statement that 
says they attacked each other at the same time to get a 
new piece of testimony. The new testimony says they were 
at close range when they attacked each other.

Present the handgun at this statement. The gun shows that 
Rell was a yard or two away from Faraday, when Rell was 
shot. Alternately, present the crime scene notes at this 

Edgeworth is then challenged to say who attacked first. 
Select "neither man". We've got contradictions, no matter 
who attacked first. Therefore, it seems likely that a 
third person killed both men, and that person fabricated 
the crime scene to make it look like they attacked each 

Edgeworth needs evidence to back this up, though. Present 
either the handgun or the plastic bag. The bags indicate 
someone else was here, because they were scattered on the 
ground to make it look like there was a struggle. The gun 
indicates someone else was here, because it was fired 
from a distance, yet both men could not have been very 
far from each other when they died.


To summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "...which indicates that they 
attacked each other at the same time."
Present the handgun or the crime scene notes at the 
statement "That fact indicates that they attacked each 
other at the same time from close range."
Select "Neither man".
Present the plastic bag or the handgun.


Calisto Yew appears with the Judge. She has a new 
suspect: Detective Gumshoe. He must be the third person, 
who committed the murder! To back up her theory, she has 
the testimony of the Judge, who looked down the hallway 
during the recess, but he did not see Detective Gumshoe.

Edgeworth asks Gumshoe a question. Ask about his motive. 
He claims he had none, but Yew disagrees. She gives 
testimony about this.


To get through this piece of investigation...

Select "Motive for the murders".

Cross-Examination: Gumshoe's Motive

About a week ago, there was a public scene between 
Gumshoe and Faraday. Faraday yelled at Gumshoe and cut 
his salary.

The contradiction in this testimony is the fact that it 
ignores the motive for killing Mr. Rell. Go to the 
statement about the explanation being perfect, then raise 
an objection. Select "motive for killing Mr. Rell".

Yew admits she doesn't know this motive, nor does she 
know anyone with a motive to kill both men. She gives 
more testimony.


To get through this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "Well? How's that for the 'perfect 
Select "Raise an objection".
Select "Motive for killing Mr. Rell".
Cross-Examination: Motive to Kill the Men

The murderer wanted to kill one of the men. He or she 
then killed the other man, because he was a witness. No 
one wanted to kill both men.

Go to the statement which says no one has a motive to 
kill both men. Present the KG-8 Incident overview, which 
shows Manny Coachen, for one, has a reason to kill both 
men. Coachen would have killed Rell in revenge for Rell 
killing Coachen's co-worker. Coachen would have killed 
Faraday, in revenge for prosecuting Coachen three years 

Coachen has an alibi for the time of the murder, though, 
so he is instantly cleared. It looks like Gumshoe is 
still the lead suspect, so he is taken for interrogation. 
Everyone leaves, except Edgeworth and Calisto Yew.

Talk to her about the KG-8 Incident. She pretends to know 
nothing about it. Present the KG-8 Incident overview, 
then select "through the victim". The victim is Cece Yew, 
and Calisto is Calisto Yew? Coincidence?

Calisto admits that Cece is her sister. Yew is still 
upset about how the KG-8 trial happened. She agreed to be 
Mr. Rell's lawyer, in hopes of learning new information 
about her sister's death, but she hasn't had any luck.

Edgeworth can also talk to Calisto about Manny Coachen. 
Coachen definitely killed her sister in the original 
incident, but he was found innocent because the smuggling 
ring stole the evidence right before the trial.

When Coachen talked to Calisto earlier, he taunted her 
inability to prove anything. She slapped him when he did 
this. The conversation between the two lawyers ends 
shortly after.

6b. Gumshoe in the Hallway

The case picks up again with Franziska and Edgeworth 
talking to Manfred von Karma. Manfred wants to go home, 
because the trial is never going to happen, due to the 
death of the defendant. It looks like Edgeworth will have 
to wait a bit before his first trial.

Franziska convinces her father to let Edgeworth and her 
keep investigating. Manfred then leaves.

The first order of business is to talk to the characters 
related to the case. Gumshoe is busy right now, so talk 
to Calisto Yew. There are four conversation topics, and 
you must go through them all.

When you talk about Detective Badd, Calisto reveals that 
he was the detective on the original KG-8 Incident. Badd 
was the one who was guarding Cece Yew at the time of 
Yew's death. Calisto is still kind of bitter about Badd's 

When you talk about the time of the murder, Calisto says 
that she was with Badd in the other Defendant Lobby at 
the time. She was planning on talking with Mack Rell, but 
a furious Faraday grabbed Rell and dragged him into the 
other room.

When you talk about Mack Rell, Calisto reveals that she 
knew he was the real murderer, and that he was not the 
Yatagarasu. Edgeworth and Franziska are disgusted that 
Yew would knowingly defend a guilty man. Yew claims she 
only did it to get more information about KG-8 and her 
sister's death. Yew makes a point of saying that she was 
NOT intending on getting Rell an innocent verdict.

When you talk about the Yatagarasu, Calisto says that a 
lot of companies hire her to protect them from the 

Once you talk to Calisto about all four things, you can 
talk to Detective Gumshoe. You can talk to him about 
three things: his motive, what happened during the 
recess, and the next step.

The motive, if you remember, is that Faraday yelled at 
Gumshoe. Gumshoe reveals that he went to the wrong office 
on his first day as a detective, which is why Faraday 
yelled at him.

When you talk about the recess, Gumshoe claims that he 
was guarding the hallway the whole time. He did this, 
because Detective Badd ordered him to.

When you talk to Gumshoe about the next step, Franziska 
finds Gumshoe's annual bonus envelope. Gumshoe's bonus 
was five dollars, and he cashed it today.

The guards come to take Gumshoe away for questioning, but 
Edgeworth has one last thing to talk to Gumshoe about: 
his testimony. Present Gumshoe's testimony to Gumshoe. 
Gumshoe confirms that he heard no sound at all from his 
guard post in the hallway, and that no one entered the 
hallway at all.

Kay Faraday shows up and kicks Edgeworth. As she runs 
away, she drops a Swiss roll.

Go through the exit on the left to reach the hallway that 
Gumshoe was guarding.


To get through this bit of investigation...

Talk to Yew about everything.
Talk to Gumshoe about everything.
Present Detective Gumshoe's testimony to Gumshoe.


Edgeworth is going to investigate the hallway where 
Gumshoe was standing guard. The door on the left leads to 
the scene of the murder, and the door on the right leads 
to the room where Calisto Yew was speaking with Detective 
Badd. We won't enter any of these rooms during the 
hallway investigation.

The Judge is here. Talk to him about the time of the 
murder. He says that he went to the men's restroom during 
the recess. You can see the men's restroom through the 
window at the end of the hallway.

When the Judge entered the restroom, he looked through 
the window and saw Gumshoe in the hallway, buying 
something from a vending machine. When the Judge left the 
restroom, he looked through the window...but Gumshoe 
wasn't anywhere in sight!

The Judge didn't think anything of this at the time, 
until he heard about the murders. The fact that Gumshoe 
disappeared at one point when he was on guard duty seems 
quite relevant to the case, especially if Gumshoe is the 
main suspect.

Talk to Detective Badd about everything. When you talk to 
him about Gumshoe, he talks about how he told Gumshoe to 
stand guard. Badd confirms that he was talking with Yew 
at the time of the murder.

When you talk to Badd about the gunshot, he says that he 
and Yew clearly heard the gunshot. They ran into the 
hallway, he grabbed Gumshoe, and they went into the 
Defendant Lobby where the two bodies were. This happened 
in less than a minute.

Edgeworth wonders if there is anything else to talk 
about. Select "time he heard the gunshot" to get official 
testimony from Badd. It happened shortly before the trial 
was set to resume.

Examine the orange vending machine to get some Logic 
about the vending machines. The Logic basically says that 
the vending machines are in the hallway.

Then, go the window that the Judge looked through, the 
window on the left side of the hallway. In the window, 
you must look at the plant, the pink scrap, the handprint 
on the bench and the pile of dirt on the floor.

Look at the plant to determine that it is a cactus with 
sharp needles. This is added to Logic.

Look at the pink thing to determine it is made of rubber. 
This is added to Logic. Edgeworth thinks the pink thing 
is somehow...familiar.

Using Logic, connect the cactus to the pink thing. The 
pink this is actually the balloon that Kay Faraday had. 
It was popped by the cactus.

Look at the pile of dirt to learn that the ants here are 
eating the leftover remains of a Swiss roll. This is 
added to Logic.

Look at the handprint on the bench to learn that it 
belongs to Detective Gumshoe. He made this handprint when 
he sat down on the bench to eat a Swiss roll. This is 
added to evidence.

Using Logic, connect the remains of the Swiss roll to the 
vending machine. Edgeworth concludes that the Swiss roll 
came from the vending machine, so let's take a closer 
look at the vending machine in question.

Go to the orange vending machine. Do you see a 
contradiction here? Edgeworth does. Deduce at the price 
of the Swiss rolls, then present Gumshoe's bonus check. 
The Swiss rolls are six dollars, and Gumshoe only had 
five dollars that day. How did he afford a Swiss roll?

Investigation complete. Edgeworth now knows what happened 
in the hallway, and it doesn't agree with what the Judge 
said earlier. Edgeworth and Franziska then go to see the 
Judge, in order to correct His Honor's testimony.


To sum up this bit of investigation...

Talk to the Judge about the time of the murder.
Talk to Badd about Detective Gumshoe.
Talk to Badd about the gunshot.
Select "Time he heard the gunshot".

  Present Gumshoe's annual bonus.

Cross-Examination: What I Saw at Recess

The Judge went to the restroom, where he could see the 
hallway. The first time he looked in the hallway, Gumshoe 
bought something from a vending machine. The second time 
he looked, Gumshoe was gone. It's pretty suspicious that 
Gumshoe disappeared when he was supposed to be on duty.

Edgeworth's goal here is to show how Gumshoe 
"disappeared". Gumshoe didn't really leave the hallway; 
he just sat down on the bench under the window to eat his 
newly-purchased Swiss roll. The Judge didn't see Gumshoe, 
because Gumshoe was seated.

To prove this, present Gumshoe's fingerprints at the 
statement about Gumshoe disappearing. The bench is a 
blind spot from the Judge's viewpoint, so pretty much 
anyone sitting on the bench would have been out of view.

The Judge demands that he be allowed to testify again.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Present Detective Gumshoe's Fingerprints at the statement 
"But when I was about to exit the restroom, he had 
completely disappeared!"

Cross-Examination: What I Saw, Pt. 2

Someone can sit on the bench and disappear from view. 
This doesn't mean Gumshoe was on the bench at the time in 
question! In any case, the most important thing here is 
that Judge heard the gunshot around the time he looked 
out the window.

Woah, the Judge heard a gunshot? He should have mentioned 
this much earlier! In any case, the problem with this 
testimony is when it happened.

Press the second statement, which says Gumshoe was not 
necessarily sitting down at the time the Judge looked 
through the window. The Judge will clarify when this 
occurred. It was about twenty minutes before the trial 
was set to resume, and this is added to the testimony.

Detective Badd said that the gunshot was immediately 
before the trial resumed. Present Badd's testimony at the 
Judge's statement about when the gunshot occurred.

The Judge is shocked, but he insists that he heard a loud 
bang. Edgeworth can explain that. It was the popping of 
Kay Faraday's balloon. Present the balloon scrap to prove 

The Judge is sad that his testimony has been disproven, 
and he regrets that he falsely accused Gumshoe. However, 
Gumshoe isn't cleared of all charges yet. We still have a 
question or two to ask him, such as, "How did he afford a 
$6 Swiss roll with only $5?"

Gumshoe is brought in to testify.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "However, that doesn't mean that the 
Detective was sitting there when I looked!"
Present Detective Badd's testimony at the statement 
"Let's see...I looked into that hallway about 20 minutes 
before we were to reconvene."
Present the balloon piece.

Cross-Examination: While I Was on Duty

Gumshoe was summoned to the courthouse by Detective Badd. 
He was told to guard the hallway, and specifically, he 
was told to guard the door to the room where the murder 
took place. Gumshoe was in the hallway the whole time, up 
until the gunshot.

Press the third statement, the one about Gumshoe being in 
the hall the whole time. Gumshoe clarifies his statement 
and says he did not move away from the door to Lobby 
Number Two.

This is easy to disprove. Present the fingerprints at the 
new statement. Gumshoe moved away from the door when he 
bought a Swiss roll and when he sat down to eat it!

Gumshoe confesses that he bought a Swiss roll. He just 
didn't want to say it, because he thought he'd be in 
trouble for eating on the job.

Edgeworth brings up the fact that the Swiss rolls are too 
expensive for Gumshoe to buy on his own. Someone else was 
in the hallway, and that person helped him buy a Swiss 

Present the Swiss roll that Kay Faraday dropped in order 
to prove this.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "From that time on, until I heard the 
gunshot, I was in that hallway the whole time!"
Present Detective Gumshoe's Fingerprints or the Swiss 
roll at the statement "And until I heard the gunshot, I 
didn't take a single step away from the Lobby No. 2 
Present the Swiss roll.


Kay Faraday then appears. She is mad because Edgeworth 
has been mean to Gumshoe. Calm her down by giving her a 
Swiss roll. Kay is happy to get the Swiss roll, but she 
is upset that her father was killed. She blows her nose 
on Edgeworth's cravat.

Talk to Kay about her father. She says that she has a 
promise notebook, made of promises to her father that she 
always keeps.

Talk to Kay about Detective Gumshoe and the Swiss rolls 
to confirm what we've figured out. She and Gumshoe bought 
a pack of Swiss rolls together.

Gumshoe lied about the hallway, in order to protect Kay. 
Why would he go through such trouble to protect a little 
girl? Present the promise notebook. One of the promises 
is "never take things from a stranger", which Kay did 
when she accepted a Swiss roll from Gumshoe.

So...Gumshoe was lying, at the expense of his job, to 
keep his promise to a little girl. 

Calisto Yew appears with an objection. In her eyes, 
Edgeworth has proven that the only two people who were in 
the hallway during the recess were Gumshoe and Kay. 
Therefore, Gumshoe is still the most likely murder 

Edgeworth and Franziska decide to investigate the only 
place that hasn't been investigated, the other defendant 
lobby that the hallway connects to.


To sum up this bit of investigation...

Present the Swiss roll to Kay.
Talk to Kay about everything.
Present the promise notebook. 
6c. Figuring Things Out

Edgeworth and Franziska go to the only place they haven't 
been yet:  Defendant Lobby #1.

As soon as Edgeworth walks in, he notices the 
overpowering smell in the room. He also listens to Kay 
Faraday talking to Detective Badd. Badd is much nicer to 
her than he is to Edgeworth and Franziska.

Our heroes are not actually going to investigate this 
room. Instead, all they're going to do is talk with 
Detective Badd.

Talk to Detective Badd about everything. He says that the 
overpowering smell in the room is the perfume that 
Calisto Yew wears. She spilled a bottle of it when she 
was in here earlier, talking with Badd. He opened the 
window, but it didn't help.

When you ask Detective Badd about the recess, he confirms 
what he said earlier. He made the call to the station to 
get Detective Gumshoe to the courthouse, then ordered 
Gumshoe to guard the hallway. Immediately after this, 
Calisto Yew pulled Badd into Lobby Number One, and they 
talked until they heard the gunshot.

Edgeworth concludes the conversation by goading Detective 
Badd into talking about the KG-8 Incident, which becomes 
a new conversation topic.

When you talk about the KG-8 Incident, Badd says that he 
and Faraday were working together to bring down the 
smuggling ring. Their efforts were going to come to 
fruition at the trial of Ernest Amano's secretary, Colin 

Colin made a fake confession about being part of the 
smuggling ring, even though he was innocent. Badd is 
pretty sure that Ernest was behind the fake confession. 
Faraday and Badd were going to use this opportunity to 
bring in Cece Yew, to have her testify about the REAL 
smuggling ring.

But then she was killed by Manny Coachen. He was found 
innocent at his trial, which happened later, because the 
main piece of evidence was stolen. In the aftermath of 
that trial, he met Calisto Yew.

Talk to Bad about his relation to Yew. Badd and Faraday 
met her on the day that Coachen was declared innocent due 
to lack of evidence. Calisto was understandably upset 
with them.

Calisto is also going after the smuggling ring, to avenge 
her sister's death. She's run into Badd and Faraday a few 
times, on the trail of the smuggling ring. However, 
nobody has yet been able to catch the leader of the ring.

Talk to Badd about his relation to Faraday. They are a 
prosecutor and detective team, sort of like Edgeworth and 
Gumshoe. Their biggest case is the Yatagarasu case, even 
though the Yatagarasu hasn't been caught yet. Badd was 
supposed to testify in court today about the Yatagarasu.

Talk to Badd about the Yatagarasu. Edgeworth thinks that 
Yatagarasu might be involved, because both of the murder 
victims in this case were, at one time or another, 
accused to being the Yatagarasu.

Badd explains why the Yatagarasu is never caught. First, 
he always knows the location of the target object. 
Second, he knows how to get past the security. Third, he 
never leaves evidence behind.

In this case, the Yatagarasu sent some evidence to the 
police. The evidence is the Yatagarasu's Key, and they 
know it's from the real Yatagarasu, because it came with 
the thief's special calling card.

Edgeworth and Franziska are summoned to the courtroom, to 
examine the evidence that Faraday was going to use in the 
trial. Go to the Prosecutor's bench, which is the one on 
the left, and examine the evidence.

There are four pieces of evidence: a gun, a knife, an 
organizer and a folder. Examine all four of them.

The envelope contains documents about the trial that was 
supposed to take place. Edgeworth recaps the case for 
Franziska, and he specifically brings up the best piece 
of evidence: a videotape of Rell committing the murder. 
This video was shown in court, and the sound of the 
gunshot was crystal clear.

The gun is a definitive piece of evidence, because it was 
the murder weapon, and Rell had the gun when he was 

The organizer contains Faraday's plans for winning the 
trial. He planned on using the videotape, as well as the 
gun. Faraday also had some evidence called the 
Yatagarasu's Key, which proves that Rell is not the real 

A picture of the Yatagarasu's Key is inside the 
organizer. Edgeworth figures this is important. After 
all, the Yatagarasu mailed it to the police.

Examine the organizer before examining the knife, and 
Edgeworth will note that the knife was not mentioned in 
the organizer. In the same way, we have a piece of 
evidence that was mentioned in the organizer which is NOT 
here: The Yatagarasu's Key.

Present the Yatagarasu's Key. The knife and the key have 
the same handle. Edgeworth suggests that the knife and 
the key are one and the same. He examines the knife in 
more detail.

Press the button on the bottom of the knife handle. It 
turns into a key. Press the button again, and it turns 
into a knife. The key can turn into a knife! That's odd.

It's starting to look like the Yatagarasu is the 
murderer, because nobody besides the Yatagarasu knew that 
the key could be turned into a knife.

Edgeworth notes that some evidence is missing, namely, 
the videotape that was shown in court, the one with the 
loud gunshot recorded on it. The Judge has no idea where 
it is. Maybe it's still in the TV in Defendant Lobby 
Number Two?

Edgeworth returns to the scene of the crime, where he 
sees Detective Badd talking with Shi-Long Lang. As usual, 
Agent Lang is a jerk to Edgeworth.

Lang leaves almost immediately, and our heroes talk to 
Detective Badd for a bit.

Talk to Detective Badd about the time of the murder. He 
refuses to help. Show him the Yatagarasu's Key by 
presenting it to him. He is shocked by the fact that the 
key can turn into a knife. Badd confirms that nobody knew 
about this trick, and he confirms that he has been 
looking for the key.

You can talk to Badd about the time of the murder again. 
Do so, and he will give you testimony.


To get through this piece of investigation...

Talk to Badd about everything.

Examine the folder.
Examine the gun.
Examine the organizer.
Examine the knife.

Cross-Examination: Det. Badd's Movements

He was with Yew in the other defendant lobby. They spoke 
about trivial things. The gunshot sounded right before 
the trial, and Yew and Badd ran to the hallway. They 
grabbed Gumshoe and went to the room where the bodies 
were found.

Press the third statement, the one about the gunshot. 
Badd confirms that he didn't hear any other sounds during 
the recess. This is added to the testimony.

At the statement which says Badd didn't hear anything, 
present the balloon piece. Why didn't he hear the balloon 
pop? After all, the Judge heard it, and he was in the 
next building.

Badd is completely unfazed at the flaw in his testimony. 
He explains that the defendant lobbies are soundproof, 
which is why he didn't hear the balloon pop.

Well, jeez! Why didn't anyone mention this before? The 
fact that the rooms are soundproof casts a whole new 
light upon Gumshoe's Testimony, which says he didn't hear 
a struggle in the room. Are we going to have to revise 
the deductions we made, based off that testimony?

Edgeworth notes an interesting contradiction. If the 
rooms are soundproof, how did Badd hear the gunshot? It 
looks like we'll have to investigate again, but first, 

We have four pieces of Logic. First, the window at the 
crime scene is open. Second, the window at the room next 
door was opened, to get rid of the smell of Yew's 
perfume. Third, the TV is very loud. Fourth, the 
videotape that was used in the trial, the tape with a 
very loud gunshot on it, is nowhere to be found.

Connect the two pieces of logic about the windows. 
Edgeworth concludes that only non-physical things, like 
sounds and smells, can get through the iron bars on the 
windows. This is added to Logic.

Connect the open windows to the loud TV. We know that 
non-physical things, like sounds, can be heard through 
the windows. The windows in this room were open, as well 
as the windows in the room next door. The open windows is 
what allowed the sound of the gunshot to be heard.

Connect the missing evidence to the gunshot. We know that 
the tape used in court has a loud gunshot on it. Could it 
be that the loud gunshot on the loud TV is the gunshot 
that everyone heard?

To get through this cross-examination...

Press the statement "...I heard the gunshot...right 
before the trial was about to reconvene."
Present the balloon piece at the statement "...I didn't 
hear any other strange sounds...until that gunshot..."
Using Logic, connect "Lobby No. 2 window" with 
"Dissipating the smell".
Using Logic, connect "Open windows" with "Very loud 
Using Logic, connect "Missing evidence" with "Gunshot 
could be heard".


A short investigation begins. Look at the videotape 
player (under the TV) to confirm that, yes, the missing 
videotape is in here. The tape played all the way to the 
end, then stopped. The gunshot is about thirty minutes 
into the tape.

Edgeworth then is challenged to explain the gunshot, 
specifically, what the gunshot was and what it was heard 
through. It was heard through the window so deduce at the 
window. The gunshot that was heard was the one on the 
tape, so present the surveillance videotape.

Edgeworth explains his conclusion that the gunshot 
everyone heard was the one on the tape, and not the 
gunshot from the actual murder. Why did the killer do 

Select "when the crime took place". Through this trick, 
the killer made sure that everyone heard the gunshot, 
about thirty minutes after the time of the crime. This 
allowed the killer ample time to create an alibi.

The investigation ends, and a police officer comes in. He 
says that Calisto Yew has figured out who the real killer 
is, and she wants some clarification from Edgeworth. Our 
heroes go to the courtroom to meet her.

To get through this investigation...

Examine the VCR.
Deduce at the window.
Present the surveillance video.
Select "when the crime took place".

6d. Confronting the Killer

Our heroes all go to the courtroom, where Calisto Yew is 
ready to explain who the killer is. She has received 
statements from everyone, and she is now completely sure 
the Gumshoe is the killer, because everyone else has an 
alibi for the time of the crime.

Ah, but we just found out that the crime really took 
place thirty minutes earlier! Calisto doesn't know that, 
yet. This is Edgeworth's trump card.

Calisto and Edgeworth decide to have a mini-trial, seeing 
as they're in court. Detective Badd will act as Judge, 
and Franziska will be the peanut, the co-

Cross-Examination: Ms. Yew's Argument

Everyone has an alibi for when the gun went off, except 
Gumshoe. All the locations were investigated, and Yew 
made sure there is no way to enter the crime scene except 
through the hallway. The conclusion is that Gumshoe is 

Calisto's testimony is rock solid, with no flaws 
anywhere. Press every statement to end the cross-

Edgeworth then reveals his trump card, the fact that the 
murder really took place thirty minutes before the trial 
was set to reconvene. Calisto Yew did not collect 
people's alibis during that moment in time.

Present the surveillance video, to show where the gunshot 
sound came from. Select "the window was open" as to how 
the sound was heard, even though the rooms are 

It's time to decide who the killer is. The killer is the 
person who opened the windows, to make sure the gunshots 
were heard. That person is Calisto Yew, so select her.

Edgeworth formally indicts Calisto of being the killer. 
Of course, Calisto has a response to this accusation.


To get through this bit of cross-examination...

Press every statement.
Present the surveillance video.
Select "the window was open".
Select Calisto Yew.

Cross-Examination: Ms. Yew's Rebuttal

The window was open, but how can you prove that Calisto 
opened it? Further, can you prove the tape was used? 
Accusing people without proof, on the basis of faulty 
logic, is quite shocking.

Calisto wants proof, and we have it. At the statement 
about the open window, the first statement, present the 
bottle of perfume. She "accidentally" spilled the smelly 
perfume, in order to ensure that Detective Badd would 
open the window, so he could hear the gunshot.

Yew is surprised that she is being accused of murder, 
just because she spilled perfume. She then gives her 
final testimony. 


To get through this bit of cross-examination...

Present Ms. Yew's perfume at the statement "You argue 
that the window was opened, however, do you have proof it 
was I who did that?".

Cross-Examination: Why It Couldn't Be Me 

Accusing someone of murder because she spilled perfume is 
a bit over the top. Calisto couldn't have been the 
killer, because she doesn't know anything about the knife 
or where it came from.

Press the third statement, the one about the knife. 
Edgeworth says the knife came from the evidence bag 
belonging to Mr. Faraday. Yew disagrees, because there 
was no knife in the bag. There was only a key.

This statement is added to evidence. Present the 
Yatagarasu's Key at the statement about the key, and 
Edgeworth shows Calisto that the key turns into a knife. 
She feigns surprise and ignorance.

Edgeworth says that there is only one person who knew 
about the knife to key trick ahead of time, and that 
person is the real murderer. This person would be the one 
who sent the key to the police ahead of time, the 

Select the Yatagarasu. Edgeworth formally accuses Calisto 
Yew of being the Yatagarasu, as well as the killer.

Calisto Yew then confesses. She admits that she is the 
Yatagarasu and the killer. She also says that Calisto Yew 
is not her real name. She fills in a few holes in our 
story by describing why and how she killed Faraday and 
Rell, in some detail.

She further admits that she's a member of the smuggling 
ring, and she ordered Mack Rell to commit murder, in 
order to protect the ring.

Calisto then pulls out a gun and fires it at Edgeworth, 
before escaping. Fortunately, no one is hurt by the gun, 
but Calisto gets away, nonetheless.

The case wraps up on a happy note, as Gumshoe is 
officially declared innocent. Detective Badd hopes that 
Gumshoe will become a real detective someday. The Judge 
apologizes to Gumshoe, and Gumshoe thanks Edgeworth for 
proving his innocence.

Make Gumshoe happy by presenting the Swiss roll to him. 
He eats it with great joy and salutes Edgeworth. Thus 
begins the somewhat troublesome relationship between 
Gumshoe and Edgeworth.

The game skips ahead seven years, to the end of Case 
Three, with Kay Faraday, Detective Gumshoe and Miles 
Edgeworth at Gatewater Land. Kay has come back because 
she found some evidence which proves that her father was 
the real Yatagarasu, namely, the Little Thief device.

Kay also returned, because the embassy received a calling 
card from the Yatagarasu. Kay figures this came from 
Calisto Yew, the fake Yatagarasu, who has never been 

Edgeworth agrees he will help Kay capture Calisto Yew, in 
the embassy. The story then continues in the next case.


To get through this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "After all, I don't even know where 
the knife that was used to kill him came from."
Present Yatagarasu's Key at the statement "There was a 
key in his evidence bag, but you can't kill anyone with a 
simple key!"
Select the Yatagarasu.
Present the Swiss roll. 

7. Turnabout Aflame 

The case a short, dramatic introduction as Edgeworth 
talks about two countries, and a building goes up in 
flame. Somehow, Kay Faraday and the Yatagarasu are 
involved. Uh oh!

7a. Fire in Babahl

Edgeworth is having a nice cup of tea, and he is thinking 
about the past four cases, when Kay Faraday shows up. Kay 
is eager to find Calisto Yew, the fake Yatagarasu.

The fake Yatagarasu sent a calling card to an embassy, 
saying he or she will be there that night. The card is 
the wrong color, but this is the best lead we have right 
now, so Edgeworth decides to go to the embassy with Kay.

At the embassy, Edgeworth and Kay go to see a play, 
starring the Steel Samurai. Fun! The play is being 
sponsored by Allebahst, while Babahl is sponsoring a 
Jammin' Ninja play.

Kay is a little confused at this point, so Edgeworth 
explains. There once was a country called Cohdopia. The 
country split in half, forming two countries: Allebahst 
and Babahl. Allebahst owns the left side of the embassy, 
and Babahl owns the right side. In the middle, between 
the two countries, is the neutral territory, called the 
Theatrum Neutralis. This is where our heroes are right 

You can now explore the Theatrum Neutralis. There are a 
lot of characters here, but you don't need to talk to any 
of them. Instead, what you need to do is look at the 
table on the left, next to the man in green.

This table has some pamphlets about the embassy. 
Edgeworth picks on up and adds it to evidence.

Suddenly, the Steel Samurai appears. Oh, cool! Of course, 
Edgeworth wants to get an autograph, so go to the Steel 
Samurai and talk to him.

Something about this Steel Samurai rubs Edgeworth the 
wrong way, but he gives Edgeworth an autograph, anyway. 
The Steel Samurai then leaves to go to Allebahst.

Edgeworth and Kay go see the Jammin' Ninja play. Once 
they get out, Edgeworth decides they should go home, 
because the Yatagarasu isn't at the embassy.

Just then, guards run up, talking about the Yatagarasu 
being sighted in Allebahst. Kay tries to get into 
Allebahst, but she isn't allowed past the guard. Instead, 
she goes to Babahl.

Edgeworth chases after Kay. By the time he reaches 
Babahl, he sees a large fire. And by the time he catches 
up with Kay, she is being arrested by Agent Shih-na on 
suspicion of murder.

It appears someone was killed in the room where the fire 
took place. Kay says she chased someone into this room, 
where she found the dead body. Detective Gumshoe wants 
Edgeworth to investigate and prove Kay's innocence, but 
sadly, Edgeworth cannot.

That's because they are in the Babahlese Embassy, which 
is considered a territory of the country of Babahl. 
Edgeworth has jurisdiction to investigate in the United 
States of America, but he doesn't have jurisdiction to 
investigate in Babahl. Only Shih-na has jurisdiction like 
that, because she is an international agent.

Before Kay gets arrested, another international agent 
appears: Franziska von Karma. Franziska has the Babahlese 
ambassador with her. Edgeworth asks the ambassador for 
permission to investigate the crime scene, as Franziska's 
assistant. The ambassador agrees.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the table.
Talk to the Steel Samurai.


The investigation begins. You've got quite a few things 
you can investigate, and you can do them in pretty much 
any order, with a few exceptions. I prefer to talk to 
Franziska first, because you can finish with her part of 
the investigation right off the bat.

When you first talk to Franziska, you get some logic 
about her being back here in the United States. Talk to 
her about the murder to learn more about what she has 
been doing at the embassy. It seems that she was with 
Agent Lang in Allebahst before she came here to Babahl.

Talk to her about the Yatagarasu to start a conversation 
about Kay Faraday. Gumshoe inadvertently gives Edgeworth 
some new information: the Yatagarasu's calling card said 
he would steal the embassy's dirtiest secret. Edgeworth 
adds this to logic.

We got two pieces of logic from talking to Franziska: one 
that says she is here on top secret business, and one 
that says the Yatagarasu wants to steal top secret 
information. Are the two related? Yes! Connect the two 
ideas in Logic to get a new conversation with Franziska.

Talk to Franziska about smuggling. She came here with 
Interpol, in pursuit of the smuggling ring, thanks to an 
accounting document they found. It seems that the 
smuggling ring's leader was in Babahl or Allebahst.

Franziska is looking for the rest of the document on the 
smuggling ring. We'll come back to that at the end of the 

Once Franziska is done, I like to look at the various 
things in the room. Examine the golden statue, the 
Primidux Statue, to make sure that it exists. It will 
become important later on in this case.

Examine the butterfly that is painted on the wall. 
Butterflies are the national symbol of Babahl, and 
flowers are the national symbol of Allebahst. This is 
useful information, so it's added to logic.

Finally, examine the knife rack behind the Primidux 
statue. It's a special set of knives. Three are in 
Allebahst, and three are in Babahl. You can tell which 
knives belong to which country, because each knife has 
the national symbol on it. One of the knives is missing 
right now, and Edgeworth notes that the knives have 
removable handles.

Now it's time to examine the corpse. It appears that 
Manny Coachen was stabbed with a knife. A knife, huh? 
Let's take a closer look.

When you examine the knife, Gumshoe notices the butterfly 
handle. This is added to logic. Now which country is the 
one that has a butterfly as its national symbol again?

Open up logic, and connect the butterfly national symbol 
to the butterfly handle. Edgeworth concludes that the 
knife came from Babahl. That makes perfect sense, seeing 
as there's a knife missing from Babahl's display case. 
There's just one tiny problem: why isn't there any blood 
on the knife handle? After all, there's a lot of blood on 
the knife.

We'll get back to that later. For now, return to 
examining the victim's body. In his pocket is the 
Yatagarasu's key, from Case Four. What is THAT doing 
here? Didn't Calisto Yew steal that seven years ago?

Press the button at the handle of the key, to show 
Gumshoe how the key/knife works. Edgeworth takes a closer 
look at the knife, and he notes its fancy design. Since 
the key was stolen from Cohdopia seven years ago, odds 
are that it is a Cohdopian design.

Franziska recommends that Edgeworth talk to Ambassador 
Palaeno about Cohdopia. This starts a new conversation 
sequence; you can't talk to Palaeno about Cohdopia unless 
you examine the Yatagarasu's key first.

Talk to Ambassador Palaeno now. He doesn't really have 
much to say at this point. Talk to him about Cohdopia, 
and he looks at the Yatagarasu's key. He thinks the key 
was probably used back when Allebahst and Cohdopia were 
both one country. However, he wasn't an ambassador then, 
so he doesn't know for certain.

The fact that the Yatagarasu's Key was used seven years 
ago gets added to Logic.

Examine the safe to find that it's locked. This is also 
added to logic.

Using logic, connect the locked safe to the key. 
Edgeworth uses the key on the safe, and the safe opens. 

Nothing is inside the safe except some papers. Look at 
them and the way they're placed. Edgeworth figures that 
the safe has a second compartment somewhere, but where?

Edgeworth is challenged to find the keyhole to the second 
compartment. Deduce at the keyhole on the left side of 
the safe, and present the only key-like evidence you 
have: the Yatagarasu's Key.

Franziska is skeptical that the Yatagarasu's key opens 
the second compartment. Examine the tip of the knife 
blade, and Edgeworth angles the knife so it fits into the 
keyhole. This opens the second compartment.

Aha! In the second compartment, we have stolen pieces of 
artwork. The victim was involved in illegal activities.

Take a closer look at the pieces of paper. Do they look 
familiar? They're the documents that Franziska was 
looking for! Deduce at the pieces of paper, then present 
the document made of Cohdopian paper.

Franziska reads these pieces of paper, and she concludes 
that the victim was the head of the smuggling ring.

Investigation complete.


To summarize this investigation...

Examine the corpse.
Examine the knife used to kill the victim.
Examine the key in the victim's pocket.
Examine the gold statue.
Examine the knife rack.
Examine the butterfly painted on the wall.
Examine the locked safe.
Talk to Franziska about everything.
Talk to Ambassador Palaeno about everything.
Using logic, connect "Franziska's return" with "Stealing 
of secret"
Using logic, connect "Motif of knife handle" with 
"Butterfly of Babahl"

Examine the tip of the knife blade.
Deduce at the papers.
Present the Cohdopian Paper Document


Shih-na is ready to arrest Kay Faraday, while Edgeworth 
is ready to prove her innocence.

Cross-Examination: Why Arrest Kay?

The Yatagarasu used the fire as a distraction to sneak 
into the embassy. Kay Faraday claims she is the 
Yatagarasu. No one besides Kay was found in the room with 
the body.

Edgeworth, Kay and Shih-na discuss the Yatagarasu for a 
moment. That's your clue to press the statement about the 
Yatagarasu. When you do so, Shih-na connects a motive to 
the Yatagarasu: stealing the Yatagarasu's Key and the 
smuggling ring documents. one stole the Yatagarasu's Key or the smuggling 
ring documents. Therefore, stealing them was not the 
murderer's real motive.

At the statement about the murderer's motive, present 
either the key or the documents. Edgeworth then makes Kay 
look innocent by destroying the testimony about her 

Shih-na doesn't give up, though. The motive might not 
fit, but Kay was still found at the scene of the crime, 
holding a knife.


To summarize this cross-examination....

Press the statement "Futhermore, this girl claims to be 
the Yatagarasu."
Present the Yatagarasu's Key or the Cohdopian paper at 
the statement "She wanted to steal documents regarding 
smuggling, so she killed Mr. Coachen for the key."

Cross-Examination: Definitive Evidence

The knife at the scene of the crime is the murder weapon. 
The knife has a butterfly handle, and it comes from the 
unique set in this room. 

Kay defends herself, saying she was chasing someone in 
black, who disappeared as soon as she entered the room. 
That sounds REALLY unlikely, Kay.

In any case, most of the testimony is about the knife, so 
we'll probably present the knife as evidence. What was 
the problem we had earlier with the knife? The fact that 
the knife's handle has no blood on it.

Present the knife at the statement about the handle. 
Then, remove the knife's handle. With these actions, 
Edgeworth proves that the knife's handle was removed 
after the murder. But why?

Take a closer look at the knife. Near the bottom of the 
knife, in the area that was covered by the handle, you 
can see a special design: a flower. AHA!

So this knife comes from Allebahst, the country whose 
symbol is the flower! Someone put the Babahl handle on 
the knife, in an attempt to fool us into thinking the 
knife came from this room.

Present the embassy guide to Shih-na to show her the 
information about the Allebahst symbol. She agrees that 
the knife came from Allebahst, and since Kay has never 
been there, Kay must be innocent.

Shih-na is still suspicious of Kay Faraday, because Kay 
repeatedly says that she's the Great Thief Yatagarasu. 
Apparently, Kay doesn't know that it's not really smart 
to expose yourself as a thief in front of police 

In any case, it's off to Allebahst, to follow the lead 
about the knife which is the murder weapon!


To summarize this cross-examination...

Present the knife at the statement "The knife with the 
butterfly handle is the murder weapon, which the killer 
was holding."
Examine the knife handle.
Examine the flower design.
Present the embassy guide.

7b. Murder in Allebahst

Our heroes go to Allebahst, and in the Theatrum 
Neutralis, they meet up with Agent Lang. Agent Lang 
denies them access to Allebahst, due to the country's 
strict policies.

Ambassador Quercus Alba, from Allebahst, appears and asks 
if there is a problem. He is reluctant to let our heroes 
investigate, until Ambassador Colias Palaeno tells 
Quercus about Manny Coachen's murder. Quercus then allows 
Edgeworth and Franziska to investigate. Gumshoe and Kay 
have to stay behind in Babahl, though.

Edgeworth has a brief period of time where he can talk to 
people before entering Allebahst. He wants to talk to 
Franziska and Palaeno.

When you talk to Palaeno, he gives you some Babahlese 
Ink. It's a special kind of ink that doesn't get exported 
for some reason.

When you talk to Franziska, she explains that Babahlese 
Ink can be used to make very good counterfeit bills. 
Manny Coachen was smuggling this ink out of Babahl, and 
he was in charge of all of Babahl's printing needs. That 
makes him Suspect #1 for the head of the smuggling 
operation, especially considering those documents found 
hidden in his safe.

The only problem with Franziska's investigation is that 
she still hasn't found any counterfeit plates, bills, or 
Babahlese ink. Since they weren't found in Babahl, she 
hopes to find them in Allebahst.

Our heroes then go to Allebahst, where Edgeworth meets 
the Steel Samurai. It turns out that the Steel Samurai is 
Edgeworth's friend, Larry Butz. Larry has a knack for 
getting into trouble, and he's in big trouble now: he's 
the suspect in a murder case.

Wait, a second murder?

Detective Badd comes in and explains that Larry was 
missing during the official ceremony he was supposed to 
attend. He was found trying to go through the chimney of 
the Ambassador's Room.

And the second murder victim was killed in the 
Ambassador's Room, during the official ceremony. Wow. 
Larry has the worst luck sometimes.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Franziska.
Talk to Palaeno.
Talk to Detective Badd about everything.


Edgeworth's investigation begins in earnest. It looks 
like Edgeworth is going to have to prove Larry's 
innocence, while still trying to find some sort of clue 
which will solve the murder in Babahl.

You can look at the things in the room in any order, but 
for the sake of organizing this guide, I'll discuss all 
the investigation work, then the conversation work.

There are several things in the room that you need to 
look at. First, examine the flowers in the windowsill on 
the right. They are passionflowers. Edgeworth jots this 
information down in his organizer, so they can help him 
solve a puzzle much later on in the case.

Then, check the photograph on the desk against the back 
wall. It's a picture of Larry shaking hands with 
Ambassador Alba. Does something about the photograph 
strike you as odd?

Examine the Primidux statue. It's facing a different 
direction than it was facing in when the picture was 
taken. Deduce at the statue, then present the photograph 
as evidence. Edgeworth will then write down that the 
statue was moved at the time of the crime (or at least, 
sometime after the photograph was taken).

Now, take a look at the knives on the knife rack. 
Edgeworth discovers that one is missing, and the murder 
weapon from Babahl fits perfectly into the knife handle. 
It looks like the murder weapon from Babahl DID come 
here, after all!

While you're looking at the knives, take a look at the 
Samurai Spear on the wall. Looks kind of broken, doesn't 
it? If you examine it, Larry will talk a bit about the 
spear. He lies and says it is perfectly fine.

Deduce at the tip of the spear, then present the Steel 
Samurai autograph. Edgeworth will then use this evidence 
to prove to Larry that the spear is NOT fine. Larry 
confesses that he accidentally broke the spear prop, and 
the spear is added to evidence.

Finally, you want to examine the dead body. There are 
three things on the body that you want to examine. First, 
examine the victim's head to learn who the victim is. 
Then, examine the note in the victim's hand. This gives 
us a piece of evidence which makes it look like the 
victim was trying to steal the Primidux Statue. Finally, 
examine the murder weapon, which is the Samurai Sword.


So, to summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine the passionflowers in the windowsill.
Examine the photograph on the desk against the wall.
Deduce at the Primidux Statue and present the photograph.
Examine the knives in the knife rack.
Deduce at the tip of the Samurai Spear and present the 
Examine the corpse.
Examine the Samurai Sword.
Examine the note in the victim's hand.
Examine the victim's face.


Now the investigation is over, and the interrogation can 
begin. You'll want to talk to Larry about everything, and 
you'll want to talk to the Pink Princess, who enters once 
the investigation is done.

When you talk to Larry, he explains that he became the 
Steel Samurai, in an attempt to catch the eye of Mindy, 
the cute girl who plays the Pink Princess. Typical 

Larry says he was found on the chimney, because he was 
pretending to be Santa Claus. He's lying at this point, 
to cover up for the REAL reason why he was on the roof, 
climbing down a chimney. Edgeworth will reveal Larry's 
true motive for being on the roof during the first round 
of cross-examination.

When you talk to Larry about the murder weapon, he says 
that he accidentally left the sword in the room when 
posing for the photo in the photograph.

Talk to the Pink Princess now to learn that she is...OH 
NO! It's WENDY OLDBAG! You know, the old lady who is 
obsessed with Edgeworth? Between her and Larry, Edgeworth 
definitely has his hands full with this case!

Talk to Mrs. Oldbag about her job as the Pink Princess. 
It seems she's just a fill-in for Mindy, the girl who 
usually has the job. (Mindy has a bad cold.) Mrs. 
Oldbag's stand-in request gets added to evidence.

Mrs. Oldbag isn't happy with her job as the Pink 
Princess, because it hurt her hip, and she got a letter 
from a stalker. The letter from a stalker gets added to 

When you talk to Mrs. Oldbag about the time of the 
murder, she says that she was by the fireplace, warming 
her leg. This information about the fireplace is added to 

Once you talk to Mrs. Oldbag about everything, a police 
officer comes in with Missile, the police dog from the 
first Phoenix Wright game. He's not as cool as Missile 
from Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, but he's good 
enough! Missile uses his power of smell to find a Samurai 
Dog and a lady's undershirt from the fireplace.

Edgeworth doesn't want to talk about the lady's 
undershirt, but he doesn't really have a choice. Present 
it to Mrs. Oldbag. She will say it is hers, and that she 
was warming it up by the fire. Talk to her about the 
Samurai Dogs, and she gives you a box of them.

You now have three things in Logic. Time to connect them. 
Connect the used fireplace with smoke from the chimney. 
Edgeworth will deduce that the fireplace in this room and 
the fireplace in Mrs. Oldbag's room share a chimney. 
That's why the smoke from Mrs. Oldbag's fire exited 
through the chimney to this room.

The shared chimney is added to Logic. Using Logic, 
connect the shared chimney with the undershirt. The shirt 
came from Mrs. Oldbag's fireplace, and the two fireplaces 
share a chimney. Could it be that the two fireplaces are 

Edgeworth and Franziska investigate. Sure enough, the two 
fireplaces are connected. All you have to do is turn the 
back of one fireplace to reach the other fireplace. 
Conceivably, you can crawl through one fireplace to reach 
the other, but that didn't happen during this murder.

Investigation complete.


To sum up this part of the investigation...

Talk to Larry about everything.
Talk to the Pink Princess about everything.
Present the undershirt to Wendy Oldbag.
Talk to Wendy Oldbag about Samurai Dogs.
Using Logic, connect the fireplace and the chimney.
Using Logic, connect the undershirt with the shared 


The investigation is complete, and Edgeworth is ready to 
prove Larry innocent. But first, of course, he needs to 
clear up whatever it is that Larry is hiding. Edgeworth 
decides the best way to do this is by cross-examining 

Larry gives his testimony, but he pretty much admits that 
he's lying in his testimony to cover up an embarrassing 
secret. Oh, Larry...

Cross-Examination: Up on the Rooftop

Larry says that after the show, he came to the embassy 
for a photo shoot. Then he wandered around and saw the 
chimney. He decided he would pretend to be Santa Claus.

The point in the testimony that is incredibly ridiculous 
is the part about Santa Claus. Go to the statement about 
Larry wanting to play Santa, and press it. When prompted, 
raise an objection.

Edgeworth brings up a good point. Santa brings presents 
to good boys and girls. Who was Larry hoping to bring a 
present to?

Obviously, Larry was hoping to bring a present to Wendy 
Oldbag. The chimney leads to her room, after all. It was 
just unfortunate luck on Larry's part that the chimney 
also leads to the Ambassador's room.

Edgeworth will clarify Larry's motive. Larry was really 
hoping to see Mindy, the girl who usually plays the Pink 
Princess. He didn't know that Mindy was replaced by Wendy 
Oldbag that day. Present the Stand-In Request to show 
Lang that Mindy was unexpectedly replaced by Wendy.

Larry, however, is getting used to being cross-examined, 
thanks to his past experiences with Edgeworth and Phoenix 
Wright. Larry thinks it will be amusing to test out his 
lawyer skills with another cross-examination.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "So then, I wanted to play Santa and 
decided to give it a try."
Choose "Raise an objection"
Choose Wendy Oldbag
Present the Stand-In Request

Cross-Examination: Larry's Assertion

Larry admits that he dressed up like Santa, but he uses 
the excuse that it was hard to see, what with the smoke 
coming from the chimney. The whole thing was just a case 
of mistaken identity. After all, why would he humiliate 
himself like that?

Wendy Oldbag interrupts and accuses Larry of being her 
stalker. Larry then says he is completely innocent, and 
Edgeworth cannot prove he wanted to meet Mrs. Oldbag.

But, of course, Edgeworth CAN prove this. After all, he 
has the stalker letter that Larry wrote. Go to the last 
statement, and present the letter from a stalker. It 
talks about "descending from above", which sounds a lot 
like "entering the room through a chimney".

Larry denies that he wrote the letter. Edgeworth says he 
can prove it. What part of the letter shows that Larry 
wanted to meet Mindy?

Highlight the "I" in Mindy. As you can see, due to 
Larry's incredibly bad penmanship, "Mindy" can be 
mistaken for "Wendy".

Larry changes his tune, and he says that the letter is a 
fake. He thinks someone besides himself wrote it. Nice 
try, Larry! Edgeworth has a sample of your handwriting!

Present the Steel Samurai Autograph. The handwriting on 
the autograph matches the handwriting in the stalker's 
letter; therefore, they were written by the same person: 

Larry then confesses that he wrote the letter to Mindy. 
He wasn't allowed to go through the door, so he thought 
he'd go through the chimney.

These two cross-examinations have proven one thing: Larry 
is an idiot. I mean, they prove that Larry is not the 
murderer! He did not purposefully enter the Ambassador's 
Room, hoping to kill someone. He accidentally entered the 
Ambassador's Room, while hoping to meet Mindy. Larry's 
motives have now been made clear.

However, Agent Lang still thinks that Larry is guilty, no 
matter what Larry's motives were. After all, the murder 
weapon belongs to Larry, which is very strong evidence. 
Agent Lang testifies to this.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Present Letter from a Stalker at the statement "But why 
would I ever put myself through so much humiliation on 
Highlight the "i" in "Mindy".
Present the Steel Samurai's Autograph

Cross-Examination: Why Larry?

Lang was the first to find the body. The bloody murder 
weapon was next to the body. The weapon was supposed to 
be in Larry's room, but it wasn't. Also, Larry himself 
was at the scene.

Edgeworth is pretty confident about how to disprove the 
fact that the murder weapon is the Samurai Sword. He 
tries to talk about this with Lang, but Lang gets off-
topic and accuses Edgeworth of fabricating evidence. Lang 
apparently thinks prosecutors are just a bunch of 

The rebuttal begins. Go to the second statement and press 
it. Lang will clarify his statement, saying that the 
Samurai Sword was used as a bludgeon.

Go to the statement about the sword being used to beat 
the victim to death. At this statement, present the 
Samurai Spear. Earlier, we learned that the spear is a 
hollow prop, not a real weapon. The Samurai Sword is the 
same way. Therefore, it couldn't have been the murder 

Edgeworth and Franziska argue a bit about the nature of a 
prosecutor, when Lang gets them back on track. He agrees 
that the sword is an unlikely murder weapon, but it's the 
only thing in the room with blood on it. There IS no 
other possible murder weapon! ...Or IS there? 


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the second statement (about the Samurai Sword).
At the third statement (about beating the victim to 
death), present the Samurai Spear.

Cross-Examination: Why Larry? Pt. 2

The sword COULD be the murder weapon. In fact, that's the 
only logical conclusion. No other murder weapon or blood 
was found in the room, and the inspectors looked 

Press the statement about the inspectors searching the 
Embassy top to bottom. This is a lie. They didn't look at 
EVERYTHING. The one thing they forgot to look at was the 
Primidux Statue.

This is because only an Ambassador or the Ambassador's 
secretariat is allowed to touch the Primidux Statue.

So, when prompted, raise an objection and pick the 
Primidux Statue. Edgeworth will tell Lang that the statue 
has gone uninvestigated. Further, the picture we saw 
earlier proves that the statue was moved tonight. Maybe 
it was moved, when it was used as a bludgeon to commit 

Lang requests permission to examine the statue from 
Ambassador Alba. This request is denied, but Lang decides 
to examine it anyway. At this point, examine the base of 
the statue to find a pretty solid handprint.

Edgeworth is worried that it is Larry's handprint, but it 
actually belongs to Manny Coachen, the victim of the 
murder in Babahl. That clears Larry of all wrongdoing, 
which is good, but this just raises more questions. Did 
Manny Coachen commit the murder in Allebahst? Is that why 
he was killed in Babahl?

At this point, Edgeworth decides to leave Allebahst to 
return to Babahl. Hopefully, Detective Gumshoe and Kay 
Faraday have unearthed some new clues to help solve the 
murder mystery in Babahl.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "We searched the Embassy, top to 
bottom, but the victim's blood is only on that weapon."
Select "Raise an objection"
Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue.
Examine the base of the statue.

7c. Figuring Things Out

Edgeworth returns in Babahl, where Kay and Gumshoe have 
found a lot of clues. Just kidding! They were goofing off 
the whole time, and they didn't find anything.


Talk to Gumshoe about the investigation. The only useful 
piece of information he has, before he gets distracted 
and argues with Kay, is that there is a special lantern 
in Babahl. It's a silhouette lantern that projects 
shadows on walls, and the lantern glows green, because 
its fuel is the same material as the special Babahlese 

Talk to Ambassador Palaeno for some information. He will 
tell you about the speech in Allebahst, and the 
importance of the Primidux Statue. It's a symbol of the 
right to sovereignty, which is why both countries want to 
claim it as their own.

Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue to Ambassador 
Palaeno. He reveals that the two statues were going to be 
examined today, to see which one is a fake. This 
examination was unnecessary, because Palaeno knows that 
Babahl's statue is the fake one.

But because the two statues were switched around the time 
of the murder, Babahl now has the REAL statue in its 
possession. That's a stroke of luck for them!

Once the conversations are over, Edgeworth decides to go 
to Allebahst, where the Yatagarasu was first sighted. Kay 
Faraday gives him a guitar pick and Ms. Yew's perfume to 
help him with his investigation. Hooray for random pieces 
of evidence which won't come in handy until later!

Now, go down to the Theatrum Neutralis, and left to 
Allebahst. Edgeworth arrives in the Rose Garden.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Talk to Detective Gumshoe about everything.
Talk to Ambassador Palaeno about everything.
Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue of Ambassador 


Franziska von Karma shows up and teams up with Edgeworth. 
Together, the two of them should be able to solve the 
mystery of the Yatagarasu's appearance in this rose 
garden. And believe it or not, the two of them solve the 
mystery rather quickly.

The rather quick investigation begins. You only have to 
do four things here. First, look at both statues. Then, 
examine the pool. Finally, talk to Agent Lang about the 
Yatagarasu's appearance. That's it!

The two statues are a pair, and they are on opposite 
sides of the garden. One is of a queen, and the other is 
of a king.

When you look at the pool, Edgeworth learns that the pool 
is not just there for decoration. It is sometimes used to 
put out fires. When this happens, the pool automatically 
refills until it reaches its normal level. Since there 
was a fire in Babahl tonight, this happened sometime 

Larry Butz then appears in the pool, saying he is on the 
lookout for the Iron Infant (the child of Steel Samurai 
Daddy). Larry thinks the doll prop may have fallen into 
the pool at some point.

When you talk to Agent Lang, he is upset because his men 
in black haven't solved the mystery of the Yatagarasu's 
appearance. Talk to him about the appearance to learn 
that nobody actually SAW the Yatagarasu. They just saw a 
silhouette/shadow that looks like the Yatagarasu. A panic 
ensued and the lights went out.

It sounds to Edgeworth and Franziska like the shadow was 
just a trick of the light. Edgeworth decides to recreate 
the trick using something in the garden. What does he 
want to use? The two statues in the garden. Highlight 
both statues in turn.

The king statue looks fine, but the queen statue doesn't. 
We need a specific shape to finish the shadow. What shape 
is that? The left hand of the queen statue. Highlight 
that, and Edgeworth puts the two shadows together, thus 
recreating the shadow of the Yatagarasu.

Okay, so it's obvious now that the Yatagarasu wasn't in 
Allebahst. That was just a trick of the light, set up by 
someone to cause a panic. This person is, most likely, a 
secret accomplice of the Yatagarasu.

The investigation ends here.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine both statues.
Examine the pool.
Talk to Lang about the Yatagarasu's appearance.
Highlight both statues.
Highlight the left hand of the queen statue.


Detective Badd shows up to give an odd piece of evidence 
to Edgeworth: a photo of the Yatagarasu, flying from 
Babahl to Allebahst. It looks rather blurry to me, but no 
matter. It's a photo, it raises a number of questions, 
and we'll deal with that later.

For now, Edgeworth wants to go back to Babahl and 
investigate there. Leave the Rose Garden, go through the 
neutral theater lobby, and go through the open air stage 
to reach Ambassador Palaeno's office.

Edgeworth meets up with Kay in the office. Kay and 
Edgeworth then detail the various things they need to do.

1. Compare the state of the room before and after the 
2. Find the mysterious person in black who Kay saw.
3. Discover how the Yatagarasu's Key is related to the 
4. Figure out the truth behind the photo of the flying 

That's asking an awful lot from our investigators, but 
I'm sure Edgeworth and Kay are up to the task. First of 
all, however, our heroes will investigate Manny Coachen's 
desk and talk with Ambassador Palaeno. Only after that do 
they start the first goal, "compare the state of the room 
before and after the fire".

Go to Manny Coachen's desk, which is in the lower/left. 
You may remember that this area was closed off by the 
police in the earlier investigation. Now, you are free to 
investigate it.

There's a bottle of ink on the desk. Ambassador Palaeno 
seems surprised by the ink. This will open up a 
conversation with the Ambassador about the ink.

Open the drawer of the desk. The notepad looks familiar, 
doesn't it? Deduce at the notepad, then present the note 
belonging to DeMasque II. Edgeworth concludes that 
DeMasque's note came from this notepad. In other words, 
it looks like Manny Coachen wrote the note, telling 
DeMasque II to steal the Primidux Statue. This opens up a 
conversation with the Ambassador about the note.

Go to Ambassador Palaeno and talk to him about 
everything. There are four conversations: what he did 
this morning, what he did this afternoon, what he thinks 
about Manny Coachen's bottle of ink, and what he thinks 
about the note that Manny wrote.

When you first talk to Palaeno, he talks about a second 
fire. Apparently, there was a fire on the top two floors, 
around the time of the Jammin' Ninja's show. That 
happened long before the fire that Edgeworth saw, which 
is the fire that took place in this office.

The mysterious picture of the flying Yatagarasu was taken 
after the first fire.

When you ask Palaeno what he did this morning, he 
discusses his schedule. Mostly, he made a huge mess in 
the fireplace and forgot to clean it. This is added to 

When you ask what he did this afternoon, he talks about 
his preparation for a photo shoot with the Jammin' Ninja. 
Due to the fires, this photo shoot was cancelled.

When you ask about the bottle of ink, Palaeno says that 
he saw the fire in this room, briefly. There were bright 
green flames in front of the door. Only things made with 
Babahlese Ink burn green flames, so naturally, Palaeno 
thought the ink had caught fire. But since the ink is 
perfectly safe, that means something ELSE made with 
Babahlese Ink caused the green flames in this room.

When you ask about the note that Manny wrote, Palaeno 
recaps a little bit. Both Babahl and Allebahst have a 
Primidux Statue. Babahl's is the fake statue. The statues 
were going to be examined by a professional, so Manny 
Coachen paid Mask DeMasque II to swap the statues. The 
statues got swapped successfully, but DeMasque was killed 
in the process. 

Once you finish talking to Ambassador Palaeno, Detective 
Gumshoe comes in with a lot of information about the 
room. Kay inputs this information into her Little Thief, 
and the room gets transformed into the way it was during 
the fire.

There are only two things you need to investigate in the 
recreated crime scene: the fire and the clock. The clock 
is on the right, and it was moved sometime. Some wire is 
found inside the clock, so presumably, the clock was 
moved when someone put the wire inside.

Examine the fire. Edgeworth will make some deductions. 
First, you want to present the silhouette lantern, which 
makes green flames. Why does it make green flames? 
Present the Babahlese Ink, which also makes green flames 
when burned. Clearly, the green flames in this room were 
made when something made of Babahlese Ink was burned.

But what was burned? It's not the ink, because that was 
found on the desk. It is instead the counterfeit bills, 
circulating in Zheng Fa. Present the counterfeit bills 

Edgeworth will conclude that Manny Coachen burned the 
bills, presumably to cover up his tracks as a smuggler. 
This is added to the organizer.

Talk to Detective Gumshoe now. When you talk to him about 
the time of the fire, he gives you more information about 
the fire in general, and the Yatagarasu. When you talk to 
him about what he saw, he tells you that Agent Shih-Na 
was in the room next to this one, at the time of the 
murder. That's how she was able to enter the room so 
quickly, to arrest Kay.

Once you talk to Detective Gumshoe, investigate the green 
flames and investigate the grandfather clock, a 
conversation with Ambassador Palaeno ensues. Edgeworth 
asks about the construction of this room, which is oddly 
similar to the room of Ambassador Alba.

Palaeno explains that the two rooms are bilaterally 
symmetrical, which means that they are pretty much 
identical, mirror images of each other. This is added to 

LOGIC TIME! Connect "Connected fireplaces" with 
"Bilateral symmetry". If the two rooms are mirror images 
of each other, it stands to logic that the fireplace in 
this room is ALSO a revolving fireplace.

Edgeworth goes to examine the fireplace, but before he 
tests the revolving wall, he notices a contradiction 
which supports his hypothesis that this fireplace has a 
revolving way. Namely, Edgeworth notices that there is a 
lack of ashes in this fireplace.

Deduce at the pile of wood and present Ambassador 
Palaeno's testimony that the fireplace was very dirty, 
and it has not been cleaned. This is added to Logic.

LOGIC TIME! Connect the missing ashes with the revolving 
fireplace. The reason there are no ashes in the fireplace 
is because someone turned the revolving wall around. Who 
did this? Why, the mysterious person in black that Kay 
Faraday was chasing, of course!

MORE LOGIC! Connect the revolving fireplace with Shih-na. 
If someone used the fireplace, they ended up next door. 
Next door is where Shih-na was. Why didn't she see the 

Investigation complete.

Edgeworth gives Gumshoe a twofold mission. First, Gumshoe 
needs to do a handwriting analysis on the note found in 
DeMasque's hand. We need to know if Manny Coachen really 
wrote that note. Second, Gumshoe needs to see if it's 
possible for someone to get through the revolving 

Gumshoe fits through the fireplace, but he gets his 
clothes all dirty as a result. Instead of standing around 
and waiting for Gumshoe to get the handwriting analysis 
done, Edgeworth and Kay decide to visit the Theatrum 
Neutralis and talk with Agent Shih-na.


To summarize this bit of investigation...

Examine Manny Coachen's desk.
Open his desk drawer.
Deduce at the notepad, and present the note for DeMasque 
Examine Manny Coachen's desk again.
Examine the bottle of ink.
Talk to Ambassador Palaeno about everything.
Examine the grandfather clock.
Examine the green flames.
Present the silhouette lantern.
Present the Babahlese ink.
Present the counterfeit bills.
Talk to Gumshoe about everything.
Using Logic, connect "Connected fireplaces" with 
"Bilateral symmetry".
Deduce at the wood in the fireplace.
Present Ambassador Palaeno's testimony.
Using Logic, connect "Missing ashes" with "Revolving 
fireplace used?".
Using Logic, connect "Shih-na's location" with "Escaped 
through revolving fireplace".

7d. Confronting a Culprit

Edgeworth and Kay go to the Theatrum Neutralis, where 
Ambassador Alba, Franziska von Karma, Agent Lang and 
Shih-na are talking. Lang is upset that the case seems to 
have come to an end, and everyone decides to go home.


Gumshoe comes in with the handwriting analysis on the 
note. Now we know for certain that it was written by 
Manny Coachen. Good work, Detective Gumshoe.

Edgeworth attempts to launch an offensive attack against 
Agent Shih-na, but of course, Agent Lang doesn't want 
Edgeworth to attack his partner. So before Edgeworth can 
ask Shih-na questions about the murder, it looks like 
Edgeworth will have to deal with Lang.

Edgeworth and Lang discuss the case in general. Edgeworth 
gives a nice overview of the moments leading to Kay's 
arrest, complete with a map. Kay chased the Yatagarasu 
into the room, and she turned on the lights. The 
Yatagarasu was gone!

Where did the Yatagarasu go? Lang figures that that 
Yatagarasu left through the door. That's not possible 
because of...

Present Agent Shih-na's picture at this point. She was in 
the next room, and arrived on the scene in seconds. If 
the Yatagarasu had tried to escape through the hallway, 
Shih-na would have seen him or her.

Not to mention, Detective Gumshoe was also in the 
hallway, on the other side. He would have seen the 
Yatagarasu, too. But since nobody saw the Yatagarasu in 
the hallway, it's safe to say the Yatagarasu didn't 
escape through the door.

Lang laughs and predicts Edgeworth's argument: if the 
Yatagarasu didn't escape through the door, he escaped 
through the window. This isn't possible, either, because 
people can't fly. Why else is it impossible?

Present the photo of the Yatagarasu, which was taken 
about two hours BEFORE the Yatagarasu was chased by Kay 
Faraday. By that fact alone, we know it's not a photo of 
the Yatagarasu escaping Kay Faraday by flying out a 

Agent Lang gets upset now. He wants to know HOW the 
Yatagarasu escaped the room. Edgeworth uses this 
opportunity to ask for Agent Shih-na's testimony. She was 
the lead investigator in the Babahl case, and she knows 
more about it than Lang does.

Lang is loath to let Edgeworth interrogate Shih-na, but 
she assures Lang that it's okay. The cross-examination 
then begins.


To get through this discussion...

Present Agent Shih-Na.
Present the photo of the Yatagarasu.

Cross-Examination: Shih-na's Movements

She helped put out the first fire. During the second 
fire, she was looking for the Yatagarasu. Shih-na was in 
the next room. She didn't see the Fake Yatagarasu, and 
indeed, she thinks Kay made up the Yatagarasu story, just 
to cast suspicion away from her.

That's a nice testimony from Shih-na, and we will 
discredit it by bringing out the big piece of evidence: 
the revolving fireplace wall. First though, Agents Lang 
and Shih-na are forced to eat a slice of humble pie, and 
they apologize to Edgeworth and Kay.

Once that's over, the cross-examination begins. Go to the 
fourth statement, the one about Shih-na being in the next 
room. At this statement, present the revolving fireplace 

Edgeworth then explains about the wall, and he suggests 
that the Yatagarasu used it as an escape route. In one 
fell swoop, he shows how the Yatagarasu escaped, and he 
accuses Shih-na of being the Fake Yatagarasu (and the 

Shih-na then starts laughing, just like Calisto Yew. So 
Agent Shih-na is Calisto Yew, in disguise. That's how 
Calisto Yew is related to this case.

The first thing Shih-na does, in response to the 
accusation, is ask for proof about this revolving 
fireplace wall. Fortunately, we have this proof. Present 
Ambassador Palaeno's testimony, which shows the fireplace 
wall exists, and it was definitely moved today.

Alternately, you can present the fireplace wall at this 

Shih-na then starts laughing at this evidence, and when 
she calms back down, she decides to finish things with a 
final piece of testimony.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Present the revolving fireplace wall at the statement 
"Although I was in the next room, I was unable to catch a 
glimpse of the Yatagarasu."
Present Ambassador Palaeno's testimony.

Cross-Examination: Shih-na's Rebuttal

Edgeworth proved that that rotating fireplace wall was 
used, but he didn't prove who used it. Keep in mind, her 
people already did a perfect investigation of the room, 
and they found nothing suspicious, so it is unlikely any 
evidence exists.

This cross-examination is actually really easy. She says 
there was nothing suspicious inside the room, right? 
Present the wire at this statement. The investigators 
didn't find the wire inside this room, so the wire PROVES 
that the investigation overlooked something.

Alternately, present the counterfeit bills. These also 
prove that the investigation overlooked something.

Actually, the investigation overlooked something really 
big. Select the room next door, the one Shih-na was in. 
Nobody investigated that room! And seeing as how the Fake 
Yatagarasu escaped to that room, I'd say it's majorly 

Detective Gumshoe runs to the room and finds three pieces 
of evidence: a coat, some makeup, and shoes. All three 
things belong to Shih-na. Thanks to our experiment 
earlier, we know it's impossible for someone to have gone 
through the fireplace wall without getting their coat 
covered in ashes and Babahlese Ink, so make sure to 
inspect the coat.

Sure enough, the coat is very dirty. Shih-na tries to 
explain this away, by saying they come from the fire. She 
challenges Edgeworth to show that the stains on the coat 
are from the fireplace.

Present the Babahlese Ink, which is what made the stain 
on the coat. Shih-na challenges Edgeworth to prove that 
the stain comes from Babahlese Ink.

Select "Burn the coat". A piece of the coat is cut off 
and burned. Sure enough, it burns green, because it's 
made out of Babahlese Ink.

Edgeworth then accuses Shih-na of being Calisto Yew. Once 
again, she demands that he prove this. Select Ms. Yew's 
Perfume. He requests a fingerprint analysis be run, 
immediately, but there is no need. Shih-na confesses that 
she is really Calisto Yew.

Yew then baits Kay Faraday by bad-mouthing Byrne Faraday. 
Kay takes the bait and runs at Yew. Yew then pulls out a 
gun and holds her hostage.

Kay and Yew talk for a bit about the Yatagarasu. From 
their comments, Edgeworth is able to figure out who the 
Yatagarasu is. Was the Yatagarasu Calisto Yew? Byrne 
Faraday? Or neither of them?

Select "neither person". They were BOTH part of the 
Yatagarasu. And the third member of the Yatagarasu? That 
would be Detective Badd, who comes into the room with a 
gun, trained on Yew.

Suddenly, Detective Badd fires, at the same moment Agent 
Lang jumps in to disarm Calisto Yew. Lang is hit in the 
leg, but Kay gets away safe, and Calisto Yew is arrested.

They find a knife on Yew's person. Present the Babahlese 
knife handle, and it turns out that handle matches the 
knife perfectly, thus further confirming our earlier 
theories about the knife and knife handles being 

Before leaving, Calisto has two things to say to 

1. The situation in Babahl was an elaborate plot to frame 
Kay Faraday, so Yew could take the Little Thief.

2. Yew didn't kill Manny Coachen.

So it appears that the smuggling ring's leader is still 
out there somewhere, alive and well. That person is the 
real murderer.

Detective Badd, who is now retired, speaks with Edgeworth 
some more about the Yatagarasu. They formed their group 
to take down the smuggling ring, but right when they were 
about to figure out who rang the smuggling ring, Byrne 
Faraday was killed.

However, Badd has two pieces of evidence which should 
help prove who the smuggling ring leader's is.

First, there is a Trump Card, taken from the time Manny 
Coachen was ordered to kill Cece Yew. Second, there is a 
video tape from this same case. Thanks to the events of 
the third case of this game, the videotape was finally 
recovered, after it went missing during the trial.

Gumshoe then has the sad duty of arresting Detective 
Badd, and this section of the game ends.


So, to summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Present the wire at the statement "...and we found not a 
single suspicious thing in Mr. Coachen's office."
Select the room with Shih-na inside.
Select the coat.
Present the Babahlese Ink.
Select "Burn the coat".
Present Ms. Yew's perfume.
Select "neither person".
Present the Babahlese knife handle.

7e. The Head of the Smuggling Ring

Whew! That last section had a lot of drama in it! Let's 
calm down a bit after that, and investigate the videotape 
that Detective Badd gave us.

The videotape shows Manny Coachen entering Cece Yew's 
apartment complex, knife in hand. This certainly does 
seem like it's relevant to the Manny Coachen case from 
ten years ago, but is it at all relevant to our current 

It seems like irrelevant evidence, but clearly, the 
smuggling ring leader disagrees. He or she ordered 
Jacques Portsman to steal it from Edgeworth's office, and 
Ernest Amano thought he could blackmail the smuggling 
ring leader with this tape.

Our heroes look more closely at this tape. At the point 
where Coachen leaves, we see something very interesting. 
What is it? The flag on the front of the car! Highlight 
this, and Edgeworth will point out that it's the 
Cohdopian national flag.

Before the significance of this can be explained, 
however, Ambassador Alba appears. The ambassador wants 
the investigation to end now, for a number of reasons. 
One, the investigation is suspect now, because one of the 
investigators (Shih-na) has been arrested. Two, Allebahst 
and Babahl are sort of in the middle of a country-
reunification process here, and it'd help NOT to have 
police everywhere.

Agent Lang then returns, saying he knows who the killer 
is. Who is it? Franziska von Karma! That's a bold 
accusation, and it's exactly what our heroes need to get 
permission from Ambassador Alba to continue the 


To get through this part of the game...

Highlight the Cohdopian flag on the front of the car.

Cross-Examination: Border-Crossing Weapons

The weapon in the Babahlese murder came from Allebahst. 
The weapon in the Allebahstian murder came from Babahl. 
Somehow, these two objects switched countries, and only 
Franziska could have done this.

The problem with this testimony is rather minor. It's not 
TWO objects that switched countries; it's THREE. Two 
statues and one knife make three things moved between the 
two countries.

Lang admits Edgeworth is right, but no matter how many 
items made international journeys, the only person who 
could have moved them was the Interpol Agent, Franziska 
von Karma.

Edgeworth is challenged to find another way the items 
could have switched countries. There IS a way, which is 
so ridiculous, Edgeworth hesitates to say it. Say it he 
must, however.

Present the photo of the Yatagarasu here. Edgeworth 
suggests that the Yatagarasu took the items across the 
borders, seeing as how the Yatagarasu visited both 

Lang says this is ridiculous, because as we all know, 
people can't fly. This picture is not a picture of a 
flying person. Something about the way Lang phrases this 
statement catches Edgeworth's attention. If it's not a 
flying PERSON in the photo, maybe it's a flying THING.

Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue. Maybe the picture is 
of the statues being switched. This guess by Edgeworth 
will eventually be proven correct, but he lacks the 
evidence to prove it now.

Edgeworth then changes topics and asks Franziska to 
testify about the time she went to the Ambassador's room.


To sum up this piece of cross-examination...

Present one of the Primidux Statues at the statement 
"Somehow, these two objects were able to penetrate the 
two countries' impenetrable security."
Present the photo of the Yatagarasu.
Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue.

Cross-Examination: Movements in Allebahst

Franziska was a guard today. She led the Steel Samurai to 
the office, then she inspected the rose garden. Then, she 
went back to the office to meet with Ambassador Alba.

Franziska's testimony has no lies in it, as you'd expect.

Press the final statement, about her returning to the 
office. She gives us more information about the 
Ambassador, watering flowers in the windowsill. Press 
this new statement to get clarification. She saw him with 
watering can in hand, in front of the four flowers.

Wait...FOUR flowers? There are only TWO flowers in that 
box! Present the passionflowers at the statement which 
says there are four passionflowers. 

Franziska seems intrigued by this discrepancy, while Lang 
thinks it's irrelevant. Edgeworth goes to inspect the 

Here's where Edgeworth makes a tricky deduction that 
confuses a lot of gamers. You're supposed to notice that 
there are two holes in the dirt, and that the two hair 
sticks from Shih-na have dirt on them. Also, the hair 
sticks look a lot like the plant support sticks that are 
holding up the two remaining passionflowers. Conclusion? 
The hair sticks are really plant support sticks.

Examine the flowers, then select "show evidence". Pick 
the hair sticks, and Edgeworth will explain this 
conclusion. Lang is skeptical that this is relevant to 
the case in any way, and he asks how the hair sticks got 
to Babahl.

Select the crossbow. It turns out that the hair sticks, 
which are really plant support sticks, are REALLY 
crossbow bolts. Someone used them to move the statues 
from one country to the other. That's what the photo of 
the Yatagarasu is of!

Lang then interrupts with new testimony.


To get through this bit of testimony...

Press the last statement.
Press the last statement.
Present the passionflowers at the statement about 
Examine the flower.
Select "show evidence".
Present the hair sticks.
Select the crossbow.

Cross-Examination: Border-Crossing, Pt. 2

Babahl's statue was shot to Allebahst. But so what? No 
matter where they were shot from, the statues would fall 
to the ground.

Press the second statement, which is "Even if you fired 
the arrows from this side, they wouldn't go far with a 
statue tied to them!" This gives you a new piece of 

At the new piece of testimony, "If it wasn't a statue 
that was tied to the arrows, then what did the crossbow 
launch...?", present the wire. Our culprit tied the wire 
to the crossbow, and with the wire tied between the two 
rooms, it was simple enough to switch the two statues.

Lang wants more information on how this works. Select 
"rotary motion" to explain how it worked. The wire formed 
a large circle, and the two statues were moved at the 
same time.

Lang wants some evidence. Fortunately, we have some. 
Select the ceiling fan. The two fans acted as pulleys, 
and they made the rotary motion. This is how the two 
statues were switched. 

Lang challenges Edgeworth to name the person who shot the 
crossbow arrows. At this point, present the crossbow 
arrows. The person who shot them had to have been someone 
who is familiar with both rooms, and someone who knew 
about the passionflowers well in advance. In other words, 
our suspect is...Ambassador Quercus Alba!


To summarize this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "Even if you fired the arrows from 
this side, they wouldn't go far with a statue tied to 
Present the wire at the statement "If it wasn't a statue 
that was tied to the arrows, then what did the crossbow 
Select "Rotary motion"
Present the ceiling fan.
Present the crossbow arrows.


Alba seems rather nonplused at being accused of being the 
head of the smuggling ring. He just stands there and says 
nothing as our characters discuss matters.

Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue here. Isn't it 
strange that Alba would want to trade the real statue for 
the fake one? Edgeworth decides to examine it.

Examine the head of the statue. Edgeworth discovers the 
hollow compartment inside the statue. And what's this? 
Something is inside the compartment?

It's the counterfeit plates! Ah, so THAT'S why Alba 
wanted to get this statue.

After much discussion, in which Lang says that he only 
pretended to think Franziska was guilty as an excuse to 
continue the investigation, Alba finally speaks up, to 
defend himself. He does so rather well, by demanding 
proof that he's the leader of the smuggling ring.

Edgeworth can choose whether or not to use the trump 
card. Pick the option you want. Either way, Edgeworth 
uses the trump card. Alba pretends he doesn't know what 
the card is, and he pretends not to know what's on the 
videotape. However, he still follows Edgeworth to the 
Theatrum Neutralis, to watch the videotape.

The video plays. Edgeworth first proves that the card is 
from the head of the smuggling ring, and it had orders to 
kill Cece Yew. Do this by selecting the card, which Manny 
Coachen is holding in his right hand.

Alba interrupts. The cards look the same, but ARE they 
the same card? It's been ten years since that video was 
shot, after all.

Turn over the card and examine the blood. A simple DNA 
test will show that the blood is Cece Yew's.

The video skips ahead, and thanks to a zoom-in feature on 
the VCR, we can see the moment where Manny and someone 
else drove away, in a Cohdopian car. First, let's prove 
that it is really Manny in the backseat of the car by 
presenting the pocket of the man by the window.

Who is the other man in the backseat with Manny? That's 
the leader of the smuggling ring. Highlight the very 
distinctive medal on his chest. This medal is the one-of-
a-kind medal that Alba is wearing right now.

Alba then confesses to the murder of Mask DeMasque II, 
but he says it was in self-defense. He denies the fact 
that he is the head of the smuggling ring, though.

Alba then pulls rank on everyone; as the Ambassador of 
Allebahst, he has extraterritorial rights, which prevent 
him from being tried in any court system other than 
Allebahst's. So, basically, there's no way Edgeworth or 
any of our heroes can prosecute him for his crimes.

Alba then leaves, so he can officially evict all of our 
heroes, under his authority as Ambassador of Allebahst.


To sum up this part of the game...

Present Allebahst's Primidux Statue.
Examine the head of the statue.
Examine the counterfeit plates.
Select either option.
Select the card in Manny Coachen's hand.
Examine the blood on the other side of the card.
Select the pocket of the man sitting at the window.

7f. Moving the Body

Curses! Alba is abusing his power as an ambassador to 
avoid prosecution! It looks like our investigation is 

Or is it? Our various heroes split off into groups, each 
person going to do something else. Edgeworth is our main 
character, so the game stays with him and his 
investigation here in the Theatrum Neutralis.

There is only one thing to examine in this investigation: 
the picture on a stand. It's a picture of the two 
ambassadors, with flowers and the Steel Samurai. What a 
great photo!

There's something weird about it. Examine the yellow 
flower that Alba is holding. Deduce at this flower, then 
present the Allebahstian knife. That's no flower! It's 
the murder weapon! 

Wow, sneaking a murder weapon into another country, 
inside a bouquet of flowers? That's quite a trick. There 
is a missing petal on the flower-handle which 
conveniently proves that it is the handle in the boquet.

The only other part of the investigation is LOGIC TIME! 
Using logic, connect the counterfeiting with renovations. 
It was unfortunate for the smuggler, Mr. Coachen, that 
Babahl's offices were being renovated. But who would have 
profited from the renovation?

Select "Quercus Alba". He definitely profited from the 
death of Manny Coachen. At least, he had a motive to kill 
Manny. This is added to logic.

Using Logic, connect the motive with Alba's agitation. 
There is something about Manny's death he doesn't want us 
to know. Could it be that he committed the murder in an 
unknown spot?

Select the Theatrum Neutralis. Because this place is part 
of the United States, the US government can prosecute 
anyone for a crime committed in the Theatrum Neutralis. 
If Alba killed Coachen here, then Alba's extraterritorial 
rights won't protect him!

Franziska returns with security footage. Get used to 
people suddenly appearing with new evidence or 
information, because it's going to happen a lot from here 
on out.

Our heroes watch the tape from Allebahst's security 
camera. No one entered the country besides Ambassador 
Alba and Larry Butz. Select 5:23, the minute that Larry 
went to Allebahst.

Here, examine the cart that Larry is pushing. Did you 
notice the suspicious bulge? What could have caused that, 
I wonder?

Our heroes then look at Babahl's security tape. No one 
entered their country, not even Manny Coachen. This 
basically proves that Manny was killed outside of Babahl, 
and his body was transported to Babahl at a later time. 
After all, there is no footage of Manny entering Babahl 
while he was still alive.

Ambassador Alba then appears and harasses our heroes. 
Just when it looks like our heroes are stuck, Ambassador 
Palaeno appears and uses his authority as an ambassador 
to get Alba to testify. Specifically, Alba testifies 
about his alibi.


To finish this investigation...

Examine the photo on the stand.
Examine the yellow flower.
Deduce at the flower, and present the Allebahstian knife.
Using Logic, connect "Coachen's counterfeiting op." with 
Select "Quercus Alba".
Using Logic, connect "Agitated Alba" with "Motive to kill 
Present the Theatrum Neutralis.
Select 5:23.
Examine the pushcart.

Cross-Examination: Ambassador Alba's Alibi

There is no reason to suspect Alba. After all, under 
Edgeworth's scenario, Alba and Coachen are partners in 
crime. In any case, Alba was in Allebahst the whole time. 
Ergo, he did not commit a murder in Babahl.

To get through this testimony, Edgeworth needs to focus 
on the motive. Press the second statement, about him and 
Coachen being smugglers. This causes Alba to make a new 
piece of testimony, one which says he has no motive.

Ah, this statement is easy to disprove. Present Mask 
DeMasque II's note at this statement which says Alba had 
no motive. He had a really good motive! Manny Coachen 
ordered someone to steal the Primidux Statue. In other 
words, Coachen betrayed him.

Also, by killing Coachen, Alba had the very good 
opportunity to push all the blame for the smuggling ring 
onto Coachen.

Alba interrupts Edgeworth. Even if Edgeworth has proven a 
motive, this doesn't prove that Alba is a murderer. Alba 
declares he is going to leave, when Kay Faraday jumps in 
at the last second with new evidence.

Kay's evidence is the Little Thief, and Byrne Faraday's 
pocket organizer. They aren't conclusive pieces of 
evidence, but Alba wants to get rid of them nonetheless. 
He agrees to do another round of testimony, in exchange 
for these pieces of evidence.


To sum up this bit of cross-examination...

Press the statement "Under your hypothetical scenario, 
Mr. Coachen and I were fellow smugglers".
Present DeMasque II's note at the statement "In that 
case, what motive would I have had to kill my co-

Cross-Examination: Alba's Alibi, Pt. 2

The last time Alba saw Coachen was in the Theatrum 
Neutralis. After that, he returned to Allebahst and 
stayed there the whole time. Coachen did not go to 
Allebahst during this time, so the two never met during 
the time span in which the murder occurred.

Alba's new piece of testimony comes with a hefty price: 
large penalties! If you press a statement that you 
shouldn't, or if you present the wrong piece of evidence, 
you get a large penalty.

It turns out you don't need to press any statements at 
all. Simply go to the statement about the meeting in the 
Theatrum Neutralis and present the commemorative photo, 
the one that shows Alba holding the murder weapon.

Alba is nervous at this point, but the fact that he 
brought the murder weapon to the Theatrum Neutralis is no 
proof of guilt, even with a proven motive.

With this round of testimony over, Alba takes the 
evidence. Before leaving, he reminds everyone that he is 
an ambassador, which means he has extraterritoriality and 
diplomatic immunity, so there is no way he can be 
prosecuted for his crimes.

Agent Lang then appears. He used the videotape from 
Edgeworth to convince Allebahstian officials to fire 
Alba. In other words, as of right now, Alba is no longer 
an ambassador. All right!

So, Alba's diplomatic immunity has been negated, and the 
fact that the crime took place on United States soil 
negates his extraterritoriality. In other words, we can 
now prosecute him fully!

...Once we prove his guilt with evidence and testimony, 
that is.


To get through this bit of cross-examination...

Present the commemorative photo at the statement "The 
last time I met with Mr. Coachen was here at the Theatrum 

Cross-Examination: Alba's Alibi, Pt. 3

Alba claims he left the bouquet of flowers (and the 
knife) in the theater, where anyone could have taken it. 
Besides, there's no way the murder took place in the 
Theatrum Neutralis. How did the body get moved from the 
theater to Babahl?

How was the body moved? It was moved with the pushcart, 
so present the pushcart at the final statement. 
Alternately, present the security footage which shows the 
pushcart being moved. Edgeworth points out the mysterious 
bulge in the pushcart.

Select the picture of Mr. Coachen, in the form of the 
notes on Coachen's body. The bulge in the pushcart is Mr. 
Coachen's corpse. In other words, the body was 
transported in the pushcart!

Edgeworth lacks the evidence to prove this, until 
Detective Gumshoe bursts in with the pushcart in 
question. Examine the inside of the cart, which has a 
blood stain. This proves the cart was used to move Manny 
Coachen's body, once the lab technicians confirm that it 
is Manny Coachen's blood.

Edgeworth isn't sure how the body was moved from 
Allebahst to Babahl, but he hopes the next testimony will 
shed some light on the subject.


To get through this bit of cross-examination:

Present the pushcart or the security footage at the 
statement "There is no way for me to have transported his 
body from the theater to Babahl!"
Present the notes on Coachen's Body.
Examine the blood on the inside of the cart.

Cross-Examination: Movements in Allebahst

Alba had his picture taken with the Steel Samurai. He was 
going to give his speech, when the Yatagarasu appeared. 
Then, he ran to his office. 

Alba's testimony leaves out a lot of things, such as his 
meeting with Franziska, the part where he and Calisto Yew 
swapped the two statues, his murder of Mask DeMasque II, 
and, oh yeah, the part where he moved Manny Coachen's 
body from Allebahst to Babahl.

Press every statement. There are no contradictions 
anywhere in the testimony, mainly because Alba omitted 
the parts that are relevant to the murder of Manny 

It's starting to look like Alba will get away with his 
crimes, when three champions of justice appear: Steel 
Samurai Daddy, Pink Princess Mommy and the Iron Infant.

The Iron Infant is soaking wet, because he was found in a 
pool in Babahl. Edgeworth pounces on this information. If 
the Iron Infant travelled from Allebahst to Babahl, did 
Manny Coachen's body follow the same route? This seems 
likely, as the Iron Infant was in the pushcart along with 
Manny Coachen's corpse.

Select "bilateral symmetry". Edgeworth is then challenged 
to locate where Babahl's pool of water is. Since the 
embassy is made with bilateral symmetry in mind, it's on 
the other side of the wall, opposite of Allebahst's pool 
of water.

Gumshoe runs to this area and finds the water. Aha! This 
is surely the route the body took!

Lang comes up with an objection to this. How did the body 
go from the Allebahst pool to the Babahl pool? Sure, the 
pools are connected underground, but it's not like bodies 
can swim.

Edgeworth explains. First, Alba put the pushcart, with 
the dead body and the Iron Infant, into the pool on 
Allebahst's side. Shih-na jumped into the pool on 
Babahl's side. Then, both pools were drained.

Select the fires in Babahl to explain why the two pools 
were drained; they were drained to help put out the fire. 
Once the pools were drained, it was easy for Shih-na to 
walk to Allebahst's pool, collect the body, then take it 
to Babahl's side.

Select the fountain spouts to explain how the pool was 
refilled. Shih-na and the pushcart simply floated up to 
the top! Then, she got out of the pool and transported 
the dead body to Manny Coachen's office.

This is all a conjecture, however. Edgeworth lacks the 
evidence to back up his theory. Or does he?

Present the guitar pick. It's not a guitar pick at all! 
It's the missing petal, from the handle of the murder 
weapon. Present the Allebahstian knife, and Edgeworth 
puts the petal on the knife handle. It's a perfect fit, 
which proves the knife handle was transported through the 
two pools of water.

Alba refuses to admit his guilt, however. 


To get through this piece of cross-examination...

Press every statement.
Select "bilateral symmetry."
Select where the pool of water would be, on the Babahlese 
side of the wall.
Present the fires is Babahl.
Present the fountain spouts.
Present the guitar pick.
Present the Allebahstian knife.

7g. Case Closed!

Edgeworth decides to change the topic. He's proven how 
the dead body was moved, but he still doesn't know all 
the specifics of the murder. Therefore, he asks Alba to 
testify about the time of the murder.

Cross-Examination: The Steel Samurai's Show

Alba was in the back of the theater, where nobody could 
see him. He remembers the contents of the show, and he 
watched the whole thing.

Press the third statement, the one about him remembering 
the show. Alba supports this claim by saying his favorite 
part was the end, where the Steel Samurai used the never-
before-seen "Early Summer Rain Jab" move. Since the move 
has never been seen before, Alba's knowledge of its 
existence proves he attended the play.

Or DOES it? As Edgeworth says, that is a move used with 
the Samurai Spear, and we know that Larry broke the spear 
in rehearsal!

Present the Samurai Spear at the statement about the 
Early Summer Rain Jab move. Because the spear was broken, 
this move was NOT used in the play. The fact that Alba 
says the move was used proves that Alba was NOT in the 
audience during the play!

Alba lies and says he was in the bathroom during the time 
the move was used. Edgeworth is upset at this excuse, 
because Edgeworth is a major Steel Samurai Fan. What kind 
of fan leaves during the best part of the show?

Larry comes to Alba's defense, because Larry is sure that 
Alba is a Steel Samurai Maniac. After all, only a few 
people knew the name "Early Summer Rain Jab", seeing as 
the move was cancelled from the play and has never been 
seen before. They only decided what the name of the move 
was shortly before the play.

Alba orders Larry to stop talking, but it's too late. The 
name of the move wasn't formally announced? That means 
Alba knows the name of the move because...

Select "he saw it". Where did he see it? On the bulletin 
board, backstage. And of course, we know that the killer 
was backstage, when he shoved Manny Coachen's body into 
the pushcart. So Alba was in the same place as the 
killer, around the time the killer was there, too.

Alba sticks to his earlier lie that he went to the 
bathroom. He says he got lost looking for the bathroom, 
though, which is why he was inside the dressing room for 
a brief period of time.

This is a lie, but there's no way to disprove it. For 
about the fifth time in a row, it looks like our heroes 
are stuck and Alba will get away, when someone jumps in 
at the last second with new evidence.

This time, Wendy Oldbag is our unlikely hero. She has a 
box of Samurai Dogs with a red spot on it. Interesting...

Using Logic, connect the "samurai dogs" with the "body in 
the pushcart". Edgeworth concludes that the Samurai Dogs 
were removed from the pushcart, to make room so the body 
could be put inside.

Then, connect "rising sun dogs" with "Samurai Dogs were 
removed". What if the red spot on the box is blood? 
Specifically, a drop of blood from the time that the 
victim's body was being moved?

Examine the red spot on the box, and Agent Lang decides 
to have it analyzed. Our heroes talk for a bit, and the 
analysis comes back. It is definitely blood.

Everyone celebrates, but their joy is premature. As Alba 
is quick to point out, even if the blood belongs to the 
victim, it does not prove that Alba is the killer. Our 
heroes immediately become disappointed.

Their disappoint turns to confusion, as Forensics 
confirms that the blood does NOT belong to the victim. 
Whose blood is it, then?

Edgeworth wonders what Phoenix Wright would do in this 
situation. This gives Edgeworth the insight he needs to 
perform a turnabout.

Whose blood is it? Present Quercus Alba.

Where did the blood come from? Present Ambassador Alba's 

What knife made the wound? Present the Yatagarasu's Key.

And with this, the long case finally draws to a close. 
The blood was from the struggle between Coachen and Alba, 
when Alba killed Coachen. The fact that Alba's blood was 
found in the dressing room proves the struggle took place 

Alba finally confesses, and he is arrested. Of course, 
Edgeworth intends on being the lead prosecutor for Alba's 
trial here in the United States. Franziska is the lead 
prosecutor for Alba's trial in Allebahst, which went 
through with its plans to reunite with Babahl.

The game ends with a few scenes, where we learn what 
happened to the various characters, after the defeat of 
the smuggling ring. It's happily ever after for pretty 
much everyone. Way to go, Edgeworth!

Case Closed.
