Trucy’s biological father was overall a very terrible parent, and he has been violent toward people outside of his family.

Several characters in the last case comment on feeling watched. This turns out to be true, and it’s implied that the main villain has been stalking them for years.

Just to clarify, it is just grape juice. It is not meant to be an alcohol reference, nor is it alcohol in the original Japanese version. It's a reference to the fact that the creator of Ace Attorney, Shuu Takumi, loves grape juice.

There's a character that steals two different characters' underwear. It's revealed later that he's not doing it for sexual reasons, but it's still pretty creepy. Also, a character from Justice For All, Hickfield, who is notorious for basically being a walking sexual harassment/medical sexual abuse joke, returns.

A culprit dislocates his shoulder after firing a large gun, but it’s not shown on screen. It’s only talked about during the trial since he tried to hide it, as the evidence would incriminate him. There’s also a lot of general talk about shoulder dislocation throughout this case since the gun used is large enough to warrant it.

The main prosecutor is called a "fop" a few times, which can be interpreted to mean gay. The same character is also often referred to as 'pretty' and there are at least a few homoerotic jokes between him and the protagonist. One of the main villains is an effeminate man whose use of nail polish is a major plot point. But no one says any slurs.
