Hypnohub writing prompt: ace attorney breakdown.
So i was discussing pheonix wright with Lord_Derik, specifically our favorite culprit breakdowns. and i thought: "wouldnt it be fun to imagine what the Breakdowns of Hypnohubs famous characters would be like?" so here's my challenge to you, Pick a character, and write what you think their breakdown would be like

bonus points for dialogue
Hmm... Well, a breakdown is a bad thing in the games, as it's when they finally crack, correct?

An easy one would be Awake-san as she would finally give in to the alluring power of hypnosis.

breakdown is when the culprit realizes they cant weasel their way out of their situation, and they promptly respond by FLIPPING THE FUCK OUT, their personality traits going into overdrive

so for awake-san the accurate thing would be her doing godots coffeemug throw, turned up to eleven where she's throwing cups of joe at everyone, screaming anti-hypnosis propaganda

I could see Awake-san doing that, while a mass of alarm clocks go off around her.

Edge-kun, I think his glasses would explode, than he'd keep trying to replace them only for each new pair to explode. Eventually, he'd collapse on the ground in anguish. Like Kill Norton from Law of Ueki.

With Hypno-tan... I'd say a spiral would form behind, only to then turn into a spring as she head starts smoking.
not gonna lie...i wanna see kaalin have a breakdown, it would be awesome to see her flip out, and i dont think anyone but her actual creator could do it justice. dialoguewise atleast
Ohhhh nice idea! Wait, I drew an AA Betty years ago. No breakdown but some court sprites.

Found it!! Here it is

This intrigues me....I shall have to think on this....

So she would be on the witness stand right? Being pressed by Phoenix?
I would basic either bawl my eyes out, flail about or glow red with Satsui No Hado energy.

yes, the attorney doesn't have to be phoenix, fuck it, it might as well be skullman2033, hypnohub ace attorney. and (i cant stress this enough) hypnosis WILL NOT get her out of this

OBJECTION!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfM70egWauo your honor, i call to the stand, the Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright version of Cornered! it has all the charm of the original. in the combined form of a full orchestra, and victorian music style. It's the perfect piece of music for utterly destroying a Kangaroo court trial, which lets face it, thats what hypnohub court would be TAKE THAT!
Gerk! Ugh you're right...

All the breakdowns from Spirit of Justice for context on how they should play out.
For Awake-san... I imagine her "worried/cornered" animation being all nervous, sweating and checking her alarm clock, looking around and gritting her teeth.
Maybe an extra one for fake confident/smug attitude where she's trying to sip coffee but her hand shakes a lot and one eye is twitching.
Negative reaction/small breakdown has her crushing the coffee cup in her fingers.
For the breakdown, her alarm clock goes off with a super loud RRRIIIIINNNG and she shakes violently with a terrified O_____O expression. Then she slomps on the stand with the face of someone who just woke up having slept very little.

she would have to sign a legal document binding her by law that makes her swear not to hypnotize, the judge, jury or witnesses. at the first sign of ANYONE WITHIN THOSE PERIMETERS going under, she loses instantly

if she had a sprite though i'd base it off Franziska, just replace the whip/riding crop with a ruler/yardstick
I feel like a breakdown would be fairly hard to do in a vacuum, because in Ace Attorney they have a lot of buildup and context that a breakdown by itself would lack. There are whole layers of lies, plots, and murders to get through before you can have a proper breakdown. That said, I'm going to give it a shot, Skypenotized style. I mean no offense to Zko, and love all of his characters.

HOLY SHIT
