 Jean's Foreign Language Course (Gold)
Learn all of Armstrong's fancy foreign words. (T&T, Ep. 3)
 

This trophy can be a bit confusing due to the fact that it’s a bit unclear which foreign words really count for the trophy and which don’t. You’ll hear most words during story progression of the third case of Trials & Tribulations, but some words are associated with things that aren’t related to the story at all.

Make sure to do the following things during that episode:

First meeting with Jean Armstrong (Investigation 1)

  • Present Attorney’s Badge
  • Present Maya’s profile
  • Present Mia’s profile
  • Present Godot’s profile
  • When talking to him and after presenting Maggey's profile, choose “Maggey’s Motive” AFTER it got psyche-locked. So basically, select it for the first time to create a psyche-lock and immediately select it for a second time afterwards.

After breaking Victor Kudo’s psyche-lock at Vitamin Park (Investigation 1)
Go back to Trés Bien to talk to Armstrong again

  • Present Scooter
  • Present Victor’s Note

When trying to break Armstrong’s psyche-lock (Investigation 1)
You need to choose a wrong item or person on every occasion before showing the right object/person!
For example, do as follows:

  • Person who stole the ticket: Maya
  • Proof that he has stolen from others: Attorney’s Badge
  • Incontestable proof: Attorney’s Badge
  • In desperate need of a large amount of cash: Attorney’s Badge

When talking to Armstrong again (Investigation 2)
You can find him in the kitchen of Trés Bien.

  • Present Maggey’s profile

Note: If you absolutely want to make sure to hear all words from him, you can also try to present every item and profile from your Court Record before proceeding with the story. That shouldn't be necessary, but may be a good backup.

During the second trial part:

  • Cross-examination “At Trés Bien”: Press him on every statement
  • Cross-examination “The Mirror”: Press him on every statement
  • Cross-examination “In the Restaurant”: Press him on every statement, HOWEVER, after pressing on “I remember la old man arrived not long after 'im”, choose "How many minutes after". Continue to press him on every other statement before going back to this statement and choose “What time?” Once he changed the previous statement, press on the new one “I remember la old man arrived not long after ‘im, just after 2 PM.”

Continue with the story afterwards and you should unlock the trophy. In case you missed a word, you don’t need to hear every word again. Replay the case and once you heard the word you’ve missed before, the trophy will unlock.

 
 Violetta's Home-Made Donuts (Silver)
Get a donut offered to Phoenix by Viola. (T&T, Ep. 3)
 

During the second investigation of Recipe for Turnabout in Trials & Tribulations, you’ll need to destroy Viola’s psyche-lock. Instead of showing the Repair Bill, just show her your Attorney’s Badge and she’ll offer you a donut.

 
 I Hate Childhood Friends (Gold)
As Edgeworth, hear all of his and Larry's childhood tales. (T&T, Ep. 5)
 

On the first day of the investigation in Bridge to the Turnabout, the fifth case of Trials & Tribulations, you will be playing as Miles Edgeworth who is trying to help Phoenix Wright due to him being unable to investigate at this point.

You’ll meet Larry Butz at the Main Gate, present the Attorney’s Badge to hear about the first childhood memory.

A bit later, you’ll need to go to the Heavenly Hall where you meet Larry again. Examine the flags hanging on the left to hear the second and final childhood memory.

 
 First Steps (Bronze)
Start playing PW: AA Trilogy.
 

Story related. Can’t be missed.

Start playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. That’s all you need to do to unlock this trophy.

 
 Justice Ill Served (Silver)
Get the bad ending in PW: AA - Justice For All. (JFA, Ep. 4)
 

There are two different endings for the second game, Justice for All. During the last trial of the fourth episode, you’ll cross-examine Shelly de Killer.

Once you’re done with that, you need to announce if your client is guilty or not guilty. Choose whatever you want and Franziska will interrupt the verdict to present new evidence to the court: De Killer’s Pistol, a Video Tape and a Bellboy Uniform. Select all of them to receive more details about them.

After that, Mia will suggest two possibilities on how to solve this case successfully. However, the whole situation is complicated and so you only have a single chance to show the right evidence.

Make a save when Phoenix says “…” (or before!) and present SOMETHING ELSE than Shelly de Killer’s profile and the Video Tape, and reply with anything else than “wanted to blackmail you”.

If done correctly, your client will be found not guilty and you’ll see the bad ending. You can then load your last save and show the right evidence to continue with the true ending.

 
 Ladders Vs. Step-Ladders (Gold)
Get every ladder vs. step-ladder conversation in PW: AA Trilogy.
 

The ladder vs. step-ladder conversations are a running gag of the Ace Attorney games, so you’ll see them quite often. There will be five different conversations about ladders in the trilogy. All you have to do is to examine all the (step-)ladders and read the conversation.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

  • Case 3, Turnabout Samurai: First Investigation, Studio One
  • Case 5, Rise from the Ashes: First Investigation, Underground Parking Lot

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All

  • Case 3, Turnabout Big Top: First Investigation, Big Top

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials & Tribulations

  • Case 2, The Stolen Turnabout: First Investigation, Basement Warehouse
  • Case 5, The Bridge to the Turnabout: Near the end of the second investigation part (after the first trial), you’ll go to the Courtyard and receive Gumshoe’s Metal Detector. With that Metal Detector, examine the ladder on the right. You can examine the ladder way earlier in this episode, but you won’t get a conversation out of it.

In case you missed a (step-)ladder, you don’t need to see every conversation again. Replay the case in which you’ve missed the conversation and just examine the respective (step-)ladder to unlock this trophy.

 
 Lunchbox Specialist (Gold)
Check out every lunchbox Angel Starr has to offer. (PW: AA, Ep. 5)
 

Angel Starr is one of the major characters in the last case of the first game, Rise from the Ashes. Her quirk is offering you different lunchboxes for every situation. You will see most of them during story progression while talking to her and cross-examining her during the trials, but there are five lunchboxes that you could technically miss.

  • When you meet Angel for the first time, present the Attorney’s Badge

During the first trial

  • After the crime photo is used as evidence, select “No Problem” instead of “Objection”
  • When you need to reveal Angel’s lie, choose “What she saw” and “The order of events” before going on with the correct answer. You will receive damage, so make sure you have enough life to spare at this point. This will give you a different lunchbox for every wrong answer.
  • During the cross-examination about the bloody shoe: Press her on the line “This shoe proves it! It's flawless, decisive evidence!” and say “There’s a problem”.

You should unlock the trophy later on the case (during the third investigation in the Underground Parking Lot). In case you missed a lunchbox, you don’t need to see every box again. Replay the case and once you saw the box you’ve missed before, the trophy will unlock.
