Glen Elg is the victim in "Recipe for Turnabout", the third case in the game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. He was a hacker and a gambling addict who was killed for refusing to hand over a virus he created.


Elg was a programmer at a small firm called Blue Screens Inc. who had a severe gambling problem. He went to loan shark Furio Tigre to take out a $50,000 loan; due Tigre's insanly high interest rates, his debt ballooned to $100,000. Unable to couldn't pay up, Elg made a deal with the loan shark to have his debt waived in exchange for creating a powerful computer virus that Tigre could sell for millions of dollars on the black market.

The day before he met with Tigre to hand over the virus, Elg got into a brawl, injuring his left ear. He went to a otolaryngologist, who gave him a cream to put on that ear.

The virus, codenamed "MC Bomber", worked, but during the meeting where Elg would hand it over, he suddenly won a $500,000 lottery jackpot. Happy that he could pay off his debt, he refused to give Tigre the virus, instead opting to pay the debt he had agreed to. Angered by this decision, Tigre slipped potassium cyanide into Elg's coffee, killing him and taking MC Bomber. Tigre the proceeded to frame waitress Maggey Byrde for Elg's murder, and posed as Phoenix Wright to trick her into hiring him as her attorney, then intentionally losing in court to secure her conviction. Phoenix would defend Byrde in a subsequent retrial, where he unmasked Tigre to be the real killer of Glen Elg.


Little is known about Elg other than he was a very talented programmer (to the point of being called "The Walking Computer" by his coworkers) with a severe gambling addiction. Specifically, he bet on horse races hundreds of times, losing every time, and he also played the lottery many times. He was also somewhat amoral, willing to create a devastating computer virus to give to a dangerous loan shark. Elg was also portrayed as naive, believing that Tigre, a dangerous loan shark, would accept Elg backing out of a deal. This mistake lead to Elg being murdered and the virus being stolen.


  • Glen Elg, like the names of all other known Blue Screens employees, is a palindrome.
  • Glen Elg is one of the three villainous victims in the game, alongside Kane Bullard (a corrupt blackmailer) and Terry Fawles (a pedophilic kidnapper). Despite being a criminal, Glen Elg was still far less evil than his murderer, who was a brutal loan shark.
