"Pursuit ~ Cornered" is a frequently ripped track from the game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
"Pursuit" is a recurring title given to tracks from the Ace Attorney series, first appearing with the subtitle "Cornered" in the first game (Gyakuten Saiban) composed by Masakazu Sugimori (who is also the composer of Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective). The piece appears whenever the protagonist manages to find decisive contradictions in witnesses' testimonies, then exposing their lies in front of all and pressing them to tell the truth (hence the title of the track).
"Pursuit ~ Cornered" is one of the most iconic and appreciated song from the series, part of it coming from the sheer satisfactory factor brought by the sound of it as it is often heart at the end of long court sessions against deplorable lying criminals. The naming scheme would eventually be reused for similar situations in later games in the series (though not composed by Sugimori anymore):
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All: "Pursuit ~ Questioned"
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations: "Pursuit ~ Caught"
- Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney: "Pursuit ~ Overtaken"
- Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth: "Pursuit ~ Lying Coldly"
- Gyakuten Kenji 2: "Pursuit ~ Wanting to Find the Truth"
- Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: "Pursuit ~ Casting Magic"
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies: "Pursuit ~ Keep Pressing On"
- Dai Gyakuten Saiban: "Pursuit ~ The Great Turnabout"
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Spirit of Justice: "Pursuit ~ Cornering Together"
The "Cornered" version is still used occasionally as it became the leitmotif of Phoenix Wright, appearing in Trials and Tribulations, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, and Project X Zone 2, as well as the anime adaptation and live-action movie.

The track first appeared not in rip from the Ace Attorney series but in Theme of Phoenix Wright (Cornered) - Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, a "corrupted" rip of the remix of the theme; it was followed three days later by Pursuit ~ Cornered - Variation - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, a K.K. Slider remix of the song.
There are currently 9 "Pursuit ~ Cornered" rips on the channel: 6 from the first DS game, 2 from the original Japanese GBA game, and 1 from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There are no memes associated to it on the channel, although Phoenix Wright has appeared as a character in certain places.
