Who is Phoenix Wright? He’s an improbable video game trial lawyer whose only superpower is that he’s a really good lawyer… sort of. Gamemaker Capcom describes him as” the rookie defense lawyer new to the scene with the wildest cross-examination skills in town.” That’s one way of putting it.

The Phoenix Wright games have spawned a wiki, memes, and even an objection maker. What’s the appeal of the game? The mock trailer for the Phoenix Wright feature length film will give you a taste.

You can also check out the entire real movie here.

In the meantime, prepare to be inspired with the best moments from Phoenix Wright.

If you try to replicate Wright’s success, beware: results may vary.
