* 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.

** When you are about to crash the wedding between [=LeChuck=] and Elaine, you have a choice of dialogue for Guybrush, one of which being just shouting "[[SayMyName Elaine!]]" In fact, that's actually a shout out to ''TheGraduate''. WordOfGod says that's where Elaine's name came from.

* ConvenientlyPlacedSharpThing: Parodied through [[InvertedTrope inversion]] in the underwater sequence. [[spoiler: LeChuck throws Guybrush into the ocean, a heavy statue tied to his leg by rope. He is dragged down to the ocean floor, only to find that it is practically ''littered'' with sharp objects with which he might cut the rope -- except they are ''all'' just out of reach.]]

* PlayerCrueltyPotential: After getting your hands on the root beer on Monkey Island, you have the opportunity to use it to destroy Bob. While he ''is'' apparently [=LeChuck=]'s right-hand man, he also happens to be a MinionWithAnFInEvil, so offing him can seem a little cruel.

* ArtShift: Most conversations between Guybrush and another character will feature a close-up shot of that character in a highly detailed and realistic portrait. It is this realism that clashes with the visual style of every other game.

Most conversations between Guybrush and another character will feature a close-up shot of that character in a highly detailed and realistic portrait. It is this realism that clashes with the visual style of every other game. The original EGA release had the close-ups in a style somewhat more consistent with the rest of the game's graphics -- compare [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/secret-of-monkey-island/screenshots/gameShotId,318377/ Elaine's EGA close-up]] with its [[http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/secret-of-monkey-island/screenshots/gameShotId,318378/ VGA counterpart]] -- and Ron Gilbert objected strongly to the more detailed style that was added in the later VGA release, but was overruled by the higher-ups at Lucasarts.
