In the Ace Attorney series, which prosecutor do you think was the toughest challenge to face? Spin-offs included.

The toughest prosecutor? In my opinion, this would be Hart Vortex from DGS2. (Technically, he’s not a prosecutor during the events of the game, but he used to be one.)

In the Ace Attorney series, which prosecutor do you think was the toughest challenge to face? Spin-offs included.

This is the guy who:

  • incited murder to claim the position of Chief Justice for himself
  • killed one prosecutor (Klimt van Zieks) who was in his way, and had another (Genshin Asougi) falsely convicted for that murder
  • blackmailed a judge (Jigoku) into murdering two people: a prosecutor (Genshin Asougi) and a detective (Tobias Gregson)
  • blackmailed a coroner (Dr. Sythe) and a doctor (John Watson) into making bogus autopsy reports and producing fake evidence, then assassinated that doctor
  • raised false charges against a prosecutor (Barok van Zieks) by falsifying evidence and witnesses
  • orchestrated the events of both DGS1 and DGS2
  • manipulated the legal systems of both England and Japan for years

Vortex essentially controlled the law; he could manipulate evidence and witnesses at will, and even change the rules of court. But, as always, Naruhodou managed to reveal the truth from a tiny slip-up.
