Villains Wiki

Jean Armstrong is one of the characters featured in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations case "Recipe for Turnabout". He alongside Viola Cadaverini were an accomplices on Furio Tigre of the murder of Glen Elg and tried to pin the blame on Maggy Byrde.

In the Ace Attorney anime, he was voiced by Fukushi Ochiai in Japanese and by J. Michael Tatum in the English dub.


Jean Armstrong was an owner and the chef of Trés Bien. However his restaurant became unpopular for overprice and terrible tasting on foods. He later took out a loan of five-hundred-thousand dollars from Furio Tigre and due to the low amount of customers in the restaurant he was unable to pay the loan and have no choice but to work with Tigre. After the murder happened he tries to steel the lottery ticket that Glen Elg had, however the one he got was worth a dollar instead of five-hundred-thousand dollars that Glen had won.

When first meeting Phoenix, he questions him about what Maggey's motive is but refused to say the answers and at the same time he stole Wright's magatama. After Phenix figured it out, he told phoenix about his debt, and at the final day he punches Phoenix for figuring out the crime too much when Tigre told him to deal with the lawyer only for Dick Gumshoe to appear to deal with the him and Tigre while Phoenix escaped.

Armstrong was then testified to court about the incident only to get caught lying in the court from listening to the radio with a ruptured ear drum and Kudo seeing the murder at the reflection of the mirror. He then admits that he was forced to cooperate with Furio Tigre for the loan.

Despite being an accomplish to the murder of Glen Elg, it seems no punishment or charges was given to Jean Armstrong and that was the last time we see him.


Jean is extremely flamboyant and performative, chewing the scenery whenever he is given the chance. He seems to be unaware of how terrible his cooking is and is an impulsive man, stealing items without giving it a second thought.

He is attracted to men like Phoenix Wright, becoming flustered when Furio Tigre flirts with him in court in an attempt to defame Phoenix Wright.

It is unknown if he is French or not, but he tries to give off the impression of being French, peppering his speech with butchered French words. He also seems to have a fluid gender identity, referring to himself as a girl multiple times throughout the chapter.


  • A lot of Jean's character come from many contradictory occurances. He's gay, yet runs a maid cafe with provocatively dressed women. His restaurant also has a French ambiance, yet it's implied he cannot properly speak the language.
