Trucy. Given her age and circumstances around her life, I find her way smarter than Maya. I can accept if someone says Maya's "cute" or "strong", but I'll never see her as an intelligent or smart character. I'm not saying that Trucy is that clever but when she's serious and talking about an important matter, you feel that she actually has perceived something and thought about it in order to find a solution. 4-2 was proof that Trucy can solve problems and save her partner's butt without sacrificing herself, and it doesn't make her selfish or less loyal than Maya, but smarter.

Maya uses her power to channel Mia (thing that even Pearl can do), but in the end of the day, who technically helps Phoenix with intelligence is Mia, not Maya. Maya can be "useful", but she NEVER uses her intellect... It really annoyed me the fact that she always channeled Mia when Phoenix were in trouble or when she needed to figure out something. And yes, she gets herself into trouble way too much... You can say that it's not her fault, but it doesn't change the fact that this kind of repetition affects the character's image.

Sorry 'bout the necroposting, but I just had to post this.

Trucy, she's more competent, cuter and not shipped as much with the person she is assisting.

Maya because her bond with Nick is much better than Apollo and Trucy's, at least in my opinion :P

As an actual character? Maya, any day of the week.
As a legal aide? Trucy, so long as no magic secrets that can't be revealed to the public are involved.
Edit: After reading the rest of this thread, I'm left wondering... why was Trucy Apollo's assistant again? Refresh my memory, because all I can remember is Trucy saying "I'll go with you." before they left to see Phoenix at the clinic

Uh, Apollo chose to work at Wright Anything Agency, where Trucy already was working at as a "magician". It's certainly not a very good reason to become a legal assistant to someone but Maya's reason was not that great either, given how she could go back to Kurain right after 1-2. Instead, she waited until she became to feel "useless"...

If I had to choose between the two, it would be Maya. Trucy felt too bland as a character in comparison.

C-A

And that's pretty much it. Apollo doesn't even question Trucy following him around, as if he knows he's supposed to be followed by a teenage girl. I was at least hoping he would say something about it by the time he entered the courthouse, but by then, he just pretty much accepts that Trucy is there. If he does question it, then show me.
And yes, Maya could have just went back to Kurain right after Turnabout Sisters. Or she could have fulfilled her dead sister's final request:
Quote:
-Phoenix: Uhm, Maya...
Why are you here?
-Maya: Because of this!
See? Mia wrote me a letter.
"Take care of Phoenix for me."
-Phoenix: Take care of... huh?
-Maya: She means the office! This office!
Someone has to help with the new Wright & Co. Law Offices, right?
And who better but me! Maya Fey, reporting for duty!
Wait, no, on second thought, let's make this casual!
Yo, Nick! Maya here, ready to get down to business!
You... don't mind me calling you "Nick," do you?
It's a great name! Mia said that's what your friend Larry calls you.
-Phoenix: ("Nick"...?)
-Maya: You know what this means? We're partners!

Maya, as she's one of my favourite AA characters ever.

(Oh my dear, I almost pressed the "New Topic"-button. I don't want to imagine my tired mind accidentally making a entire thread just to scream "Mystic Maya". And I would probably name it something like "Why can't I send this post without naming it?" And then it would be too late.)

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

I initially didn't like maya, i thought she was bland, insufferable and i hated her "cutesy dumb" schtick :maya-shock:
As i played through the original trilogy though, she got more endearing, and she kind of grew on me, i dunno why either. Even though she wasn't always the most reliable character, it was kind of nice having her in court next to Feenie :phoenix:
and yeah, Trucy's cute and all :sillytrucy: but she never felt "important" to me.

I will admit that i've gotten really really tired of people pairing :maya: with :phoenix: . I mean no. just no.

I personally like Trucy more than I like Maya.

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

Don't get me wrong: I like Trucy, but why judge your companion based on how much they babysit you? It's the player's job to solve the case, not their virtual assistant. I prefer Maya becauseI think she's better at providing dialogue to make things interesting, and emotional support for phoenix, among other things...

I prefer Trucy but think Maya is better as an overall character (and has better theme music...)

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

Maya, because I feel that her interaction with Phoenix is a lot better than Trucy's interaction with Apollo. Also, I don't see what all the fuss about Mr Hat is, seeing as he's essentially another Trilo (except Trilo had some dialogue I rather liked). Thankfully, Trucy barely existed in Dual Destinies, which was something that I saw as a huge positive (and would like to see more of).

A super easy question for me. I've never liked Maya. :yuusaku: One of my last favorite types of characters are silly girls, and unfortunately she's one of them.*shot*


Having replayed AJ recently, I'd say that Trucy is far, far more sillier than Maya is.

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

I think it's a tie. Usually, what I do to compare two alike characters is switch what games they're in. Imagine Trucy being in the original trilogy and in PL vs PW, and then Maya in Apollo Yoostis and Dual Destinies.

Yeah... It kinda works for both of them...! So I'm calling it a tie.

But me, with a personal opinion? :gbaglove: :trucy:

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

I think they're both great supporting characters to the main lawyers in the series, but I have to say I like Maya more.

I adore Trucy, she's so cute, and her magic tricks are very cool, don't get me wrong, but I feel as though Maya has been there all along, you know? She was always there with "Nick", and I feel like because she has been around for much longer, I like her a little more.

Plus, Maya's burger obsession is honestly me. :maya:

Post subject:  Re: Maya or Trucy

Both. But I think Maya's a little bit better (about 4% better) than Trucy. Because Maya is Immature and Glutton while Trucy's sorta Mature and not-so-glutton, I think she would've fit better.

In fact, I would've said Trucy's the best one if it wasn't for those damned Magic Panties Trick. :dahlia:

Overall,as a character? Maya,definitely.

But in AJ and in a few parts of SoJ,I find Trucy to have some hilarious lines. But since DD and most of SoJ did nothing with her,I'll have to give it to :maya:
