Special Attacks

Lawl Revolution

Investigation Mode

Neutral B: Investigation

Phoenix searches for evidences in the stage. Once he has found one, it's shown next to an evidence folder near to his stocks. There are four evidences he can find: An Autopsy Report, a Picture, a Knife and cellphone. The only way to lose an evidence is by getting KO'd.

Side B: Get'em Missile

Phoenix summons Missile, his dog, who runs forward, causing damage and tripping to the opponents that touch him. If Missile touches a wall or reaches to the stage's ledge, he'll disappear.

Up B: Super Jump

Phoenix just does a triple jump.

Down B: Psycho Lock

Phoenix places a lock next to him. If someone touches it, he/she will get stunned for 4 seconds. When the opponent is locked by the lock, he takes x2 more damage. If you place a lock when another one is already placed, both will be connected by a chain. If an opponent touches the chain when it's created, that opponent won't be able to move until something touches him/her.

Trial Mode

Neutral B: Present the Evidence

Phoenix uses the evidence he has found with his Investigation attack. The evidences have different effects:

  • Cell Phone: Phoenix shoots a laser out of the cell phone, similar to Fox's Neutral B.
  • Knife: Phoenix slashes with it, dealing no knockback.
  • Picture: Phoenix throws the picture in a similar way to Mario's Fireballs.
  • Autopsy Report: Phoenix shoots an energy ball out of it, similar to Lucario's Neutral B.
Side B: Trial Mode

If you tap Side B, Phoenix will throw some papers forward, which can reflect projectiles apart from just dealing damage. If you hold the button, he'll walk forwards with the papers and then attack with them. This causes more damage.

Up B: Rising Phoenix

Phoenix covers on fire and dashes in the direction you want. Similar to Fox's Up B, only slower.

Down B: Trial Mode

The Judge appears behind Phoenix and smashes with his hammer. When the judge is saying "Order in the Court", the opponents will get stunned if they're touching him. Once you use this attack, you must wait 5 seconds to use it again.

Final Smash: The Ace Attorney

Phoenix creates a spark of light. If someone gets caught by that light, 1 cutscene occurs where Phoenix accuses whoever was hit of an unknown offence, while saying "The one who actually committed the crime, is YOU! No alibi, no justice, no dream, no hope! It's time to pay for your crimes!" After this, a massive Take That Bubble appears, and the screen quickly turns back to normal. All trapped opponents are knocked back. 

Super Lawl

Neutral B - Objection!

Phoenix throws out his hand, making the infamous OBJECTION! bubble appear. This attack does not make people flinch, but turns them around, allowing easy gimp opportunities. However, this move has very little range as a foe must be near Phoenix for it to connect. The move deals 12% damage pretty good knockback. This move will also gain 2% extra damage depending on how long the projectile it was in the briefcase.

Side B - Take That!

Phoenix points out his finger, causing a Take That! Bubble to appear. This will be his main source of K.O.s, and is one of the most powerful non-final smash attacks in the game when at maximum evidence. (In order of level from weakest to strongest: 5%, 6%, 8%, 10%, 10%, 13%, 16%, 20%, 21%)

Up B - Hold It!

In the air, Phoenix will jump upward in any direction you chose. Enemies who are close to Wright get stunned by a Hold It bubble. If he hits an enemy, he can jump again. On the ground, he walks a short distance, then points, making a Hold It! Bubble, that stops enemies, and projectiles.

Down B - Evidence Pickup

Phoenix opens a briefcase. If an enemy projectile hits him, he will close the briefcase, and will take no damage. Using this move again will cause him to open the case, sending out a more powerful projectile based on how long it was in the case.

Final Smash - The Final Verdict

Phoenix pulls out his desk. All opponents on the ground in a certain range are then trapped. A cutscene occurs where Phoenix accuses whoever was hit of an unknown offence, while saying "The one who actually committed the crime, is YOU! No alibi, no justice, no dream, no hope! It's time to pay for your crimes!" After this, a massive Take That Bubble appears, and the screen quickly turns back to normal. All trapped opponents are knocked back. However, if he fails to trap anyone, he will still attempt to sue his opponents, but without the cutscene. Instead, the attack is an empowered Take That! bubble.

Character Description

Phoenix Wright is a defense attorney who works at the Wright and Co. Law Offices. He can almost be considered the mascot of the Ace Attorney games, having appeared in every game in the series thus far. Wright fights for the complete acquittal of his clients, despite all of the evidence that may be stacked against them. He is famous for being able to "turn around" seemingly impossible cases. He doesn't defend clients he knows for a fact are guilty, as proven in Justice for All. Wright is described by many as a lucky person, due to having many misfortunes that would kill a normal person, but surviving. For examplee, he has fallen off of a 40 foot high burning bridge, and fallen into a river famous for washing away it's victims, and got off with nothing except a cold. Wright has become famous for his trademarked "Objection" text bubble.

Standard Attacks

Ground Attacks

Basic Attacks

  • Neutral attack- Wright rapidly searches his evidence files, throwing paper everywhere. After the first 2 hits, the paper no longer flinches.
  • Dash Attack- Wright trips forward with a very short ending lag.


  • Side - Wright sneezes. Based on his sneezing launcher attack from UMvC3, and the first case of Trials and Tribulations, where a younger Wright has a cold.
  • Up - Wright throws the "Thinker" statue upward nonchalantly.
  • Down - Wright takes out measuring tape, and pulls it out a short distance, then puts it away.


  • Side - Wright throws 3 sheets of paper. The first two papers combo into the third, which has above average knockback. This is loosely based on his paper tossing move from UMvC3.
  • Up - Wright punches the air with joy.
  • Down - Wright pulls out his desk, and slams his arms on it. Getting hit by the desk traps opponents.


  • N-Air - Wright looks at a sheet of paper. High knockback and high speed makes this good for edgeguarding, and is especially useful out of Hold It..
  • F-Air - Wright shows his opponent a piece of paper.
  • B-Air - Wright quickly points behind him.
  • U-Air - Wright brushes his hair.
  • D-Air - Air Trip. This puts Wright into tumble state after he flips once.

Grabs, Throws

  • Grab- Grabs with both hands
  • Pummel- Throws 2 sheets of paper

Note: All of Wright's throws include him pulling out his Magatama, and a Psyche-Lock appears on the foe. When a direction is inputted, a Take That bubble appears, and launches the opponent in the direction pressed, with the exception of down throw, which lifts the grabbed opponent away from Wright, and sends them diagonally away from Wright.


  • Ledge attack: Wright throws his hands in the air, as a celebration for his lucky escape.
  • 100% ledge attack: ???
  • Floor Attack: Wright stands up quickly, coming to a realization.
  • Back Attack: ???
  • Trip attack: ???
