• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • The two sequences in which you try to steal the idol in the first place. Much of the action takes place automatically in a room that you can't see; all you can see is dialogue and the actions that Guybrush is doing, many of which you can't normally do in the game. The highlight is perhaps "Hypnotize quarrelsome rhinoceros".
  • The fight between Guybrush and the Sheriff in the Governor's Mansion. It starts out pretty funny and then keeps getting more and more insane.

Push Red Button
Sheriff: No! Not the red button!

  • The "Ask Me About Loom" bloke.
    • What made the Loom guy even funnier was the fact that shortly after the Special Edition rerelease, Loom was rereleased on Steam as part of a LucasArts adventure pack.
  • Secret Of Monkey Island has the option to let Guybrush greet Meathook with the non-sequitur "I'm Bobbin Threadbare, are you my mother?" His response: "No, your mother was a duck."
  • A crew who mutiny in the laziest way possible.
  • After sinking the Sea Monkey with a giant rock:

Guybrush: Whoops.

  • Two words: Rubber tree.
  • Cannibals with strange eating habits.
  • Repeatedly escaping from the vegetarian cannibals' hut causes them to increase security until the hut has a steel vault door, yet the obvious escape route is apparently not noticed.
  • The revelation that Herman actually has a ship.
  • The realization that "The governor can take care of herself" is more than just an excuse not to go rescue her...
  • The underwater idol puzzle, possibly the most hilarious example of Cutting the Knot in all entertainment. Guybrush has been dumped off a pier, tied to a heavy golden idol. You have ten minutes to solve the puzzle before Guybrush drowns, one of the rare genuine deaths in a LucasArts adventure game. There are swords, scissors, knives, razors, shears and all manner of sharp cutting things just out of arm's reach. If you wait long enough, two guys walk onto the pier, lengthily debate tossing a sword into the ocean directly over your head...then decide against it and walk off again. The solution, ladies and gentlemen: pick up the idol and walk out with it.
    • I've just started playing the game and I laughed at that part! I honestly didn't think it would be as funny as it was!
