Top 10 Characters from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Phoenix Wright is known for it's interesting characters. But which characters from the original game are the best.

The Top Ten

1 Miles Edgeworth

Turnabout Goodbyes, DL-6. Enough said.

He's hot.

2 Maya Fey

Burger queen in games, turned miso ramen queen in the anime adaptation. Maya's just awesome!

(No hate on the anime or games. None, I just like them both. You can have your opinions.)

Long live the burger queen!

Maya is one of my favourites by far.

They all suck

3 Phoenix Wright Phoenix Wright Phoenix Wright, known as Ryūichi Naruhodō in the original Japanese-language versions, is a fictional defense attorney in Capcom's Ace Attorney video game series.

Phoenix Wright is the best!

They all suck

He's such a cliche >:(

4 Detective Gumshoe

It's detective gumshoe, pal!

He's just so lovable! How could you not?

They all suck

5 Damon Gant

Love this man. He is so badass that it's scary. My boyfriend introduced me to the series and when I told him about how freaked out I got when the game pauses and Gant just stares at you eerily he laughed his ass off because when he played it the first time he thought the game was broken.

6 Larry Butz
7 The Judge
8 Mia Fey


Mia's death is one of the most offputting events I've experienced in gaming. - WonkeyDude98

9 The Psycho Bellboy
10 Godot

The Contenders

11 Franziska Von Karma

How is she not on this list? She is by far my favorite character in the game series.

She's adorable.

12 Simon Blackquill
13 Apollo Justice

Apollo is best boy

14 Matt Engarde

Matt is definitely my favourite, dude. although it's close with Furio being number 2, Matt wins. I like how he seems trustworthy, but that's a façade and he really hired the assassin all along.

15 Yanni Yogi
16 Missile
17 Ema Skye
18 Lana Skye

The "Rise From the Ashes" case is an extra case only on the DS version, but I love it regardless. A reason why I do is because of Lana Skye. She's protective and loyal to her sister Ema Skye. She may seem cold when we meet her, but believe me, that's not it at all. She's really a good person, but she can't show that side of her when she's under someone else's control.

I love all the characters of the Phoenix Wright games, but Lana Skye especially stands out for me. Lana protected Ema although Ema is soon found to be innocent. She went through around two years of suffering under the control of Gant and returns to Ema at the end of "Rise From the Ashes," and that last scene where she hugged Ema and smiled was extremely heartwarming. I just like her in general (not in that way, folks).

22 April May
23 Penny Nichols
24 Manfred Von Karma




25 Frank Sahwit
26 Polly

Sal is an important character to the case. He represents all of today's nerds. "He's 1337."
