* UnwinnableByMistake: The content of the Juju bag is not used before the escape scene with Wally, so if by then you've forgotten to open the Juju bag with the matches, it will be "too dark to see anything" and you have to reload.

* ContinuityNod: Stan explains the reason he started a coffin business was so he could be ''absolutely sure'' his customers wouldn't come back with complaints. In the Secret of Monkey Island, Stan wound up sucker-smashed into the ocean by Ghost Pirate [=LeChuck=].

** If you choose the name " "Herman Toothrot" while applying for the library card, you can only check out 3 books rather than 4. In the first Monkey Island during a conversation with Herman Toothrot about saving Elaine, he mentions "The fine on that overdue library book must be pretty big by now..."

** In the Special Edition, the Lite mode is not selectable (CD versions removed it in the 90s too), but the content is there and can be made fully playable with some user patching. All the unique dialogue in easy mode is voice acted, and the new graphics are in high-res.

* PlaygroundSong: Guybrush can entreat one of the two friendly pirates on Scabb Island to sing a song. After a couple semi-bawdy numbers about Elaine, he resorts to this song. You can choose to interject with a random number and he'll jump to it; and if you're patient enough to let him get down to one, the other pirate will say a different number and he'll start there again, meaning he'll keep singing numbers indefinitely if you let him. In the special version, a great amount of numbers are voiced until the pirate enters a "da-da-da-da-da" loop.

* LifeEmbellished: Not only Guybrush spins an ornated tale about his victory over [=LeChuck=], he has also penned ''several'' books about it: "The time I blew Up [=LeChuck=]" "When I blew up [=LeChuck=]", "Where I blew up [=LeChuck=]" and "Why I blew up [=LeChuck=]"
-->'''Guybrush:''' I can't believe I'm reading my own memoirs. The catalog was right, this IS pretty bad.

* LostInTranslation: Perhaps a worst case scenario -- [[spoiler:the waterfall puzzle is a pun on "monkey wrench."]] Since this is a term only ever used in America though, the foreign English-speaking countries were scratching their heads trying to solve a puzzle that had an arbitrary solution as it stood. It got even worse when it was translated, with the translators struggling to find a way for this puzzle to make sense. Needless to say, Creator/RonGilbert made sure not to use another puzzle with a wordplay solution again.

[[note]] There's a slight exception to the Spanish version of the game, as the Phatt Library contains a book "101 uses for monkeys", which explains that monkeys can be used as "English wrenchs", the Spanish equivalent of "monkey wrenchs" [[/note]]

* VideogameCrueltyPotential: There are several cruel and mandatory actions to advance the plot, but releasing Kate from prison after you frame her for your actions and get her ass thrown to jail is completely optional.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Par for the course. Under the sea, Guybrush can remark: "This monkey head is too heavy to carry to the surface. Considering this game has no drop verb, I'm doomed."


Added DiffLines:

** Guybrush becomes bluer and bluer if you feel like testing his 10 minute breath-holding capability claims. Around the time mark, he gives up and returns to the surfice.

** You can go on mixing drinks pointlessly, but there's a limit on how much money can you waste so the game does not get unwinnable. Once you buy enough drinks you become a regular and don't get charged in Scabb Island bar.



* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Largo bumps into Guybrush and robs him left and right in the very first controllable scene when you try to leave the screen. Take a shot of grog and raise your hand if, in your first play, feeling smart/frustrated, you did reload/restart to go in the other direction, just to be mugged anyway. The animation changes a bit accordingly, but's that's it.
