Power of the Verse

Most of the characters of the franchise display superhuman feats ranging from Phoenix Wright breaking a reinforced door to Simon Blackquill dismantling a robot when wielding a katana, for speed most characters are at Supersonic levels of speed, like Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, who blitzed a revolutionary insurgent, Phoenix, who reacted and dodged a whip multiple times, and Datz, who reacted to missile fire from a drone.

Crossovers and cameos are considered non-canon.
