Welcome to the Sprite Cup, Court Records' first ever Sprite Only contest!  Below you will see the top 15 finalists, listed in no particular order.  Please look over and consider every entry carefully before continuing on to the voting page.

If you want to link your friends and supporters to the contest so they can vote, you must link them to this page, not the voting page.  If I catch someone linking directly to the voting page they will be instantly disqualified.

When judging the sprites, please pay special attention to the originality, continuity, and execution of each sprite.   Ask yourself, is the entry unique?  Does it seem like a character that could actually fit in the Ace Attorney universe?  (Or if it's a canon character, can you see them appearing this way?)  Is the work well made and technically impressive?   Unlike the OC contest, only the sprite work is being judged here.  Any extra details about the OC characters are just there for fun, and should not factor into judging.

And now, the entries!

Baron Ludwig von Schmerzenburg is the ambassador for Germany in (whichever country AA takes place for you unless it's Germany xD).  He looks quite dangerous, so he might be getting himself involved in certain legal business, if you know what I mean. He wears a mask.  (why? that's a secret.) A reasonably good chess player.

Matthew "Jing" Coquille by Yuanfang


Age: 24
Occupation: Model
Brief Physical Description: A tall slender man with a feminine face. He has ginger colored hair and purple eyes.
Brief Personality Description: Quite flamboyant and playful. Likes to tease Apollo. Sexuality is questionable. He has a lot of feminine mannerisms.
Connection to canon characters (if applicable): Defendant of Apollo.
Misc. Facts: "Jing" is his stage/model name. It comes from "ginger," which his hair is famous for being. It can also mean sparkling in Chinese.
His first and last name are a reference to Matt Engarde, Matthew being the long version and Matt and Coquille being a fencing term, like Engarde. This is because his situation is similar to Matt's, where he was accused of murdering his fellow star and rival. A key difference is that he is innocent. Apollo was very wary to trust him in the beginning, but learns the lesson of always having to trust your defendant.

Red Scarlet (Sound) / Funtagoe Akako (Doramu) by Zinle

Click for Sprite Sheet


ENG:I had once Imgained character who would wear only red clothing. That's why her name should have been something red too and what would have done it better than Red Scarlet? Her name only means red.

JPN: Her first name Akako is a passionate name that signifies red, so it was pretty obvious choice, eh? Her last name comes from the word futago and that means twins. Also, if you take all letter that ar in futago there will read NE and that means two. Get it? Twins and two. Doramu, her nickname, means drums. I chose it because she plays the drums.

AGE: 18

OCCUPATION: Band member

FAMILY: Three minutes older sister, Blue, and father and mother. Also a cat.

LIKES: Loud banging

DISLIKES: Playing softly

PERSONALITY: Red is those kinda characters that have grown hard shield on them. She won't show her true feeling and acts cold to everyone, even her own twin sister. But inside her she still cares of those who shes cold to. She doesn't talk too much and gets angry pretty easily.

- Her hair is naturally red
- She tries to be tomboy, because she isn't those romatnic ones

Fritz Sharpe by Nose


age- 45

occupation- Chief prosecutor of the district

personality- A methodical and respectful man, Fritz can come off as a bit stern, however he holds great respect for his subordinates and opponents and has a great sense of honour.

brief physical description- well built and always smartly dressed. A large moustache and very piercing eyes.

connection to canon characters- subordinate of Lana skye before her dismissal, has worked with all of the prosecutors of the district including Edgeworth, Godot, Franziska and Klavier.

brief backround- During the DL6 case Sharpe was an up and coming prosecutor, and was even tipped to become the new chief prosecutor, however after Joe Darke's arrest and trial Lana Skye was given the job. Realising how odd it was that a non-prosecutor could get the job, Sharpe harboured suspicions about her, which were proven true after the end of the state vs. Skye case. After this case Sharpe got the job himself. Through looking through the files of Redd white and Gant, Sharpe realised the extent of corruption within the district. Sharpe sees himself as a crusader against this corruption and feels that every prosecution is a step towards a brighter future.

Miles Edgeworth by DJCruithne


Click for Sprite Sheet

Age is unkind to many people: Some go gray, some get cranky, some become senile, and the rest go through some combination of the above.

Oddly enough, at age 33, Miles Edgeworth managed to do all three without even trying. (Then again, he was born with the first two traits. Cheater.)

Now, I'm sure you're wondering how something like this could could happen.

Well, one day Pess died of old age.

Tragic, yes?

Edgeworth sure thinks so: seeing as how his state of mind depended on the doggy's condition (and the fact that his sanity died along with it). He then lost his job after doing nothing but stare at dust particles floating in the air during courtroom battles (he even named one Freddie).

Now, you would think that Edgy, being the awesome little bugger that he is, would do something lawyerly to get his job back, right?


He got a job at a fast food restaurant instead.

What restaurant, you ask?

Chickie's Chicken hut.

Yanni Yogi (who somehow managed to escape from jail using the combined forces of a burrito, a yo-yo, and an empty gum wrapper) started the restaurant one day because he felt like it, and since he had gone senile, he gave Edgy a job.

Now, Edgy works under his manager, Polly. After all, someone has to hold up the store's motto of “chickielicious chicken so delicious, you can't chuck a chicken at it!...

“Oh, and don't forget DL-6! *squawk*” Polly thought it up herself.
