* CivilianVillain: [[spoiler:After [=LeChuck=] gets transformed into a human, he appears to turn over a new leaf. Guybrush still doesn't trust him, though, despite Elaine's urges for him to let bygones be bygones. Finally, once things come to a head, [=LeChuck=] tries it with the voodoo.]]

* LamePunReaction: Given the series, these are unavoidable, but of note is Guybrush's "[[DoraTheExplorer D'Oro the Explorer]]" in Chapter 1. His left hand actually slaps him for it.

* ArtImitatesArt: In Chapter 1, there is a Desingeograph of the "Vitruvian Pirate", which Guybrush calls "Pirate Da Vinci", on the Illuminopictoscreen; this "Vitruvian Pirate" is definitely a spoof of ''Vitruvian Man'' by LeonardoDaVinci.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler: [=LeChuck=] just impales Guybrush, rather than go for an overtly elaborate DeathTrap.]] Possibly {{foreshadow|ing}}ed in a way, in the second episode, when he says that [[spoiler: if he wanted to kill Guybrush, he would just throw him off a cliff]].

*** If you accuse the Marquis de Singe of [[spoiler:causing the winds to always go inward on Flotsam Island]] but lack evidence to prove it, he'll end the conversation with [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory "Good day sir!" followed by "I said 'good day!'"]]

* DitzyGenius: While the game has no shortage of [[TheDitz ditzes]], the Marquis de Singe is the rare sort who can devise a brilliant EvilPlan for {{Immortality}} but also fall for the LookBehindYou gag any number of times.

''Tales of Monkey Island'' is a 2009 video game, developed by TelltaleGames. It is a five-part episodic game and the fifth in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series. The game begins at the conclusion of Guybrush's latest, [[NoodleIncident unseen]] adventure - the player guides him as he once again defeats [=LeChuck=] with an improvised piece of voodoo weaponry, only to turn the villain human again, release his concentrated evil as "The Pox of [=LeChuck=]" (which infects Guybrush's own hand) and maroon himself on Flotsam Island. All in the first chapter!

* OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe: In the PS3 version, one of the bronze trophies obtained in Chapter 1 (when Guybrush sees the effects of the Pox of [=LeChuck=] on the inhabitants) is labeled, "Is That a Pox on Your Face, or Are You Just Angry to See Me?"

*** In Chapter 4, if the player has Guybrush use one of the severed legs on the altar without dipping it in sugar water, he will quote a few lines in a spoof of "Alas, poor Yorick" from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' (V.i) (this is done in the PS3 version in order to net the player a "Guybrush Goes Classy" silver trophy).
*** Speaking of PS3 trophies, there are a few trophies that are shout-outs too ("What's in a Name?" from the balcony scene of ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' (II.ii), and "Adieu, Adieu..." which is a reference to Hamlet's father's written line, "Adieu, adieu, remember me," from ''Hamlet'' (I.v)).
