** One of the dialogue options the player can make when challenging a pirate to a fight is to ask "How do you guys talk so funny?" to which the pirate will reply (breaking accent in the Special Edition), "Pirate Lingo! It's how everybody talked back then. Come on Guybrush, play along."

The first game in the VideoGame/MonkeyIsland series, ''The Secret of Monkey Island'', was released in 1990. The game begins as our hero, Guybrush Threepwood, finds himself on Mêlée Island™, with one clear objective on his mind: Becoming a Mighty Pirate™. To become one, he must first pass "The Three Trials", and while doing so he learns of Elaine Marley, the local governor, and her story with the notorious ghost pirate, [=LeChuck=], who now terrorizes the waters around Mêlée Island™ together with his undead crew. After passing the trials, Guybrush finds out Elaine has been kidnapped by [=LeChuck=], and he must now set sail for [=LeChuck=]'s lair which lies on the titular Monkey Island™ in order to save her.

** The redrawn artwork in the remake - the shift is so drastic that there is actually a petition to have Guybrush's hair changed back to how it used to be and a [[http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=208599 fan-made patch]] restores the good old-ways.
