* {{Understatement}}: The corpse of Herman Toothrot's friend is labeled "unhealthy-looking man," but then again Toothrot said he looked even worse while he was alive...

* ThatWasTheLastEntry: The Captain's log found in the Sea Monkey. It ends abruptly when the two characters described in the log leave the ship to investigate the eponymous Monkey Island, leaving their fate a mystery.

* SeesawCatapult: Herman Toothrot has built a fixture on Monkey Island that he insists is modern art, but consists of a log placed over a rock with a boulder on one end. This leads to a puzzle in which Guybrush mush turn the log to the correct angle and drop a rock from an overhanging ledge in order to knock down a banana tree on a distant beach. If he gets the angle wrong, he may hit his own ship, resulting in slight embarrassment on his part and an extra scene in the ending in which his crew are marooned on the same island.

** At one point, Guybrush boasts that he can hold his breath for 10 minutes. Much later in the game, you have to beat an (extremely easy) puzzle while underwater. If you wait the full ten minutes instead of solving it, which can only really happen intentionally, you die (the only real way to die in the entire game.)

* CoversAlwaysLie: See Guybrush exploring Monkey Island, sabre in hand and leading a group? It's not going to happen. In the game he bumbles alone and unarmed.

* LiteralMetaphor: Not as a bad as the infamous Monkey wrench, but the book "How to Get Ahead in Navigating" taken by the cannibals in exchange for their navigator's head also has its translation problems in other languages.

** When Herman Toothrot sees the Sea Monkey, he calls Guybrush "braver than you look," a reference to how Princess Leia says "you're braver than I thought" when she sees the Millennium Falcon in ''Film/StarWarsANewHope''.

* DescriptionCut: In the ending, Guybrush wonders [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse what happened to various characters]]. Cut to Stan falling into the water from the skies, cut to Guybrush's crew imprisoned by the cannibals and blaming Guybrush for the rock that felt on the ship.

* DescriptionCut: In the ending, Guybrush wonders [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse what happened to various characters]]. Cut to Stan falling into the water from the skies, cut to Guybrush's crew imprisoned by the cannibals and blaming Guybrush for the rock that felt on the ship. If you didn't sink the ship, Guybrush wonders what happened to Herman Toothrot, and it cuts to him still on Monkey Island, wondering where Guybrush is.
