Ace Attorney (or Gyakuten Saiban in Japan) is a popular lawyer video game series that has found success in Japan and overseas. One hero of the games, Phoenix Wright (Ryuichi Naruhodo) takes the role of defense attorney versus the iron clad prosecution of his long time rival Miles Edgeworth (Reiji Mitsurugi).

As one would do when their games become successful, Capcom has merchandised it up and down the block releasing items such as mugs, key chains, and the stylish plastic folders you see above.

But one Twitter user discovered something rather unsettling about them.

The reverse side of these folders contains the famous logo from the series in which a silhouette of Phoenix makes the most dramatic finger point ever (a signature move of the series) along with the title.


Another image of the folder, taken from the Capcom online shop like the one above, was tweeted with the caption; “Eh, lol, that logo is in a really bad position. lol”

It would certainly appear that Miles, or at least a part of him, is approaching the bench.


What’s more, the above photo is from the reverse of the Miles folder. If we do the same with the Phoenix folder it appears as if the prosecution requests a swordfight.

Although someone will probably get in trouble over this juxtapositional junk, there’s a valuable lesson to be learned from this. Guys, if you’re ever summoned for jury duty just appear in court like Miles here.
