To celebrate and express just how excited we are about Phoenix Wright being confirmed as the second Challenger Pack in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass, each week between now and when Phoenix Wright is released in-game we will come up with a new idea for a Spirit Battle using a character from the Ace Attorney series!
To start this series off, we'll be making a Spirit Battle of the most famous Spirit Medium in Ace Attorney: Maya Fey, recently-declared Master of Kurain Village's Fey clan and practitioner of the Kurain Channeling Technique. The fact that Galeem has turned her into a Spirit is ironic. Or, he will, as of when Phoenix Wright becomes playable. Now, let's get on with the details of what kind of Spirit she'll be, and her fight...
- Maya Fey
- Ace Attorney series
- Spirit Type, Ability
- Transformation Duration ↑
- Opponent: Hilda-coloured Zelda
- Type & Power
- Defense Type
- 3300 Power
- Stage & Music
- Wuhu Island; bridge section
- Yūyūki Medley
- Item: Food
- The enemy becomes more powerful after eating
- The enemy is easily distracted by items
- The enemy favours down specials
Maya is trying to focus on spirit channeling, being the Phantom special attack. Part of the training to master the Kurain Channeling Technique is being able to channel several different spirits in succession, which is what the Phantom summoning is. However, she's distracted by the occasional item spawn.
In the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, all Food items that appear are Spaghetti—the closest Food dish to Maya's favourite food, ramen noodles. In the localised versions of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Hamburger dish will be the only food that spawns instead, since Maya's favourite food in those are burgers. That makes the fight slightly different between regions, because Spaghetti heals 8% damage while the Hamburger only heals 7%.
After defeating Maya, she'll support you as a Spirit, like her role as an assistant to Phoenix Wright. True to the Kurain Channeling Technique, her ability is increased transformation duration. Those who are more experienced in the technique can channel a spirit for a longer period of time.

Ludwig hopes that you appreciate this Spirit Battle idea and will look forward to the continuation of this weekly series! The staff has plenty of developed ideas for these, so don't worry about inspiration. But if you'd like to share your own ideas in the comments section or your requests, feel free. Do you think that this idea for Maya Fey's Spirit Battle makes sense? Or if you could make it, would you have a much different take?
The first Spirit Battle written by KoopaTV was for Rawk Hawk.
The next Spirit Battle in the Ace Attorney series is for Franziska von Karma.
