* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Throughout the series an absurd amount of minor gags are found by using items in ways not intended in order to win the game. For example, try using the ramrod on Murray at the start of ''Curse'', then examine the porthole in the next scene. If that made you feel bad, offer him some gum in Act 2.

Originally conceived as a ''Literature/TreasureIsland''-like {{pirate}} adventure by Creator/RonGilbert, co-creators Creator/TimSchafer and Dave Grossman (of [[Creator/TelltaleGames]]) began using their own [[NoFourthWall meta-fictional]] jokes as placeholders. As [=LucasArts=] was actually somewhat clever and still had a sense of humor in those days, they told Schafer and his gang write the rest of the dialogue. Presto changeo.

Series creator Ron Gilbert left after the second game. After the long hiatus following ''Escape'', Telltale Games took up the mantle with their episodic ''Tales of Monkey Island'' release - with Gilbert's blessing and also the involvement of many key staff members from the original two games. [=LucasArts=] has also gotten back in the game of late, finally redeeming themselves in the eyes of adventure fans by remaking both the original ''Secret of Monkey Island'' and the first sequel ''[=LeChuck's=] Revenge'', complete with voice acting by the cast of ''Curse''.

* {{ShoutOut}} : Tons of them, specially to other ''Lucasfilm/Arts'' games and works. As mentioned below, exhausting every possible line of dialogue to trigger one becomes an implicit part of the gameplay. Expect many references and lots of wordplay if there is a library or a bookshelf around.
