It's with a heavy heart today that I report that Shu Takumi has let the world know that his beloved Pomeranian Missile passed away this past summer. He was 11.

Following the airing of last night's episode of the Ace Attorney anime, which saw a young Edgeworth meet a very peppy Pomeranian, Takumi tweeted out the following:

Shu Takumi wrote:
In last night's episode, there was a Pomeranian who passed the time happily with a boy named Edgeworth... the pomeranian's name wasn't said on-screen, but he just so happens to look like a certain dog at the Takumi residence; a dog that rocketed all over the place just like a Missile.

This past summer, Missile went to eternal rest at the age of 11. I'd shown him off a few times here on Twitter, and all of you loved him so much. I knew I had to tell you all sooner or later, but... Now that he's had one last appearance on the small screen, I thought now might be the time.

He passed away very suddenly, just a few days after I returned from my business trip in America. I believe he was waiting for me to come back before he went... Even now, I can't even think of it without being overwhelmed. Thank you for everything, Missile.

"I'll always always always be with you!"


Besides his latest appearance in the anime, Missile is closely tied to Ace Attorney: he was named after the police dog from the original trilogy. But most players know him from Ghost Trick, where he served as one of the protagonists and captured the world's heart as a top Pomeranian. On the game's third anniversary, Takumi released a song celebrating Missile, and even if it was about the version from the game, it's hard not to think it wasn't about his own faithful friend as well.

Missile is survived by his owner, Takumi, and his two siblings the cats Sankichi and Kinako.

I was under the impression the Ace Attorney dog was actually named after him, not vice versa? Since the real-life one was named after the M on his forehead.

Either way, RIP Missile, thank you for being a top Pomeranian.

If we see any similarly shaped objects mysteriously swapped around the house, we'll probably know who's responsible for that...

I'm not sure about the M, but Missile was 11 when he passed in 2018, so he was born well after the Ace Attorney Missile was written in 2000. But if I've made a mistake and someone has a source, I'm happy to change things.

He explained the nomenclature in his tweet introducing Missile and confirming him as the Ghost Trick basis (amusingly it's actually short for Namamissile). You have a point about the dating, though, so I have no idea.

Poor Missile... I’ve known about the real-life Missile for quite some time, it is shocking to know he died so suddenly.

If that tweet is saying Ghost Trick Missile is based on him then there's nothing confusing right? The dating only contradicts AA Missile being named after the dog, GT came out after irl Missile was born.


Also :larry: RIP Missile. You'll be remembered as the inspiration for best doggo.
