Phoenix Wright

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

Phoenix Wright, known as Ryuichi Naruhodo in Japan, is the main protagonist of Capcom's Ace Attorney series of adventure games. He is a blue-suited lawyer best known for his entertaining courtroom antics like pointing fingers, shouting "OBJECTION!", and slamming desks. Over the course of his legal career, Phoenix became famous for consistently producing miraculous turnabouts befitting of his name, able to bluff and prove his way out of the trickiest of situations in order to defend his clients' innocence, while uncovering the true culprit behind every crime scene.

Wright emerged as a very popular video game character who stands out for his distinct characterization and for being a non-combatant (in a physical sense). As such, he has enjoyed substantial presence in the King of /v/ tournaments, making top four on its very first edition. Despite his popularity however, he isn't really seen by many people as a championship contender, as he's prone to running into unlucky matchups.

Tournament History[edit]

King of /v/[edit]

Phoenix's first appearance was in 2019, where he was a strong contestant, winning most of his matches by good margins and making it all the way to semi-finals before being eliminated by eventual champion Senator Armstrong. In the 3rd place consolation match, he lost to Kazuma Kiryu, placing 4th, which was the same that his assistant Maya Fey placed in Queen of /v/ that year.

Wright came back in 2021 and coasted his way to round 4 where he narrowly lost to Morshu, who coincidentally later placed 4th after losing to Kiryu in the 3rd place consolidation match, same as Wright did two years prior.

2022 was an eventful year for Wright. In round 1, he faced Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, who impersonated him, leading to an eventful trial where Wright had to prove that Isaac was a fake, which ended up with Isaac being successfully sent to jail. In round 2, he faced Grimm, who was put on trial for the rape and murder of Rance, and again, Wright was successful and won the case. Sometime after this, it was revealed that Wright had over 5000GB of Cheese Pizza on his computer, leading to several anons wanting to throw the lawyer in jail. Wright would lose to Jack Frost in the quarterfinals, later placing 6th in the 5th-8th consolation match but missed out of matching his ranking with Maya's own from Queen of /v/ in a tragic turn of events.

Phoenix Wright will be eligible for King of /v/ 2024.

Heroes of /v/[edit]

Outside of King of /v/, Wright is notable for winning the Heroes of /v/ side tournament, where he won his matches with good margins and brought his opponents to justice, as well as defending Ayin and his company from claims of crimes against humanity from his opponent in the finals, journalist Frank West. Wright's win here was celebrated after he had come close after making Elite Eight in past King of /v/ tournaments as well as Co-op 2023, where he was paired with fellow Ace Attorney character, Miles Edgeworth.
