** Another great example avoids making the game [[UnwinnableByMistake unwinnable by mistake.]] It's entirely possible to avoid visiting Stan until you have the hammer and nails in your inventory. Normally, Stan gives Guybrush the clean, white hankie the first time Guybrush attempts to leave his shop. If, however, you attempt to nail the coffin shut while Stan is sitting in it during your first visit, Stan automatically pops the lid open before you can do so and hands you the hankie. Quite handy, considering [[spoiler: the hankie is necessary for solving the game's last puzzle.]]

* 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, RonGilbert made sure not to use another puzzle with a wordplay solution again.

** The gambling "puzzle", is where gamers often overthink its complexity, thinking there a simple mathematical formula to determine what numbers the various hand gestures correspond to. Its not. The correct answer is always the [[MundaneSolution amount of fingers he shows in his example]]. The fortress "puzzle" once again tricks you, as you helplessly assume ''each line'' of [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment the skeleton song]] is the clue. Its not. You have to follow ''each verse'' for ''each statue'', thus leaving a lot of repeating text on your song [[NoticeThis as an unwanted distraction]].

* GuideDangIt: Ordinarily a [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment completely redundant trope]], considering this is Monkey Island. There are however, ''two infamous puzzles'' that thwarted players utterly in the day, and still leave newcomers totally stumped wondering how are you to progress. Not because, they're difficult, but because they are '''insultingly easy'''. To the point where the games designer is no doubt [[TakeThatAudience mocking your intelligence]]:

* GainaxEnding[=/=]TheEndingChangesEverything: [[spoiler: After Guybrush falls down the hole in Dinky Island, he finds himself in some concrete tunnels. [=LeChuck=] is there with a VoodooDoll and he tortures Guybrush with it after revealing that he is Guybrush's brother. Big Whoop only contains a ticket with the letter "E" on it. In the tunnels Guybrush finds an elevator that leads to Melee Island, carnival equipment, and a hospital room with two skeletons that he immediately identifies as his parents. Later he builds a VoodooDoll and nearly kills [=LeChuck=] with it, then he takes off [=LeChuck's=] mask and reveals that [=LeChuck=] is his long lost brother Chuckie. Then the scene cuts to both of them as kids at an amusement park where Guybrush's parents chastise him for wandering off, and then they go to a ride. But at the last second Chuckie makes a AsideGlance and lightning arches from his eyes. Finally during TheStinger Elaine wonders if Guybrush has fallen into another trap]]. And that's why there is a BrokenBase (for this game). Many [[http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10784 discussions]] with EpilepticTrees and WildMassGuessing have ensued. Nobody knows for sure what the ending originally was all about, and the next game {{Retcon}}ned it.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: One of the first dialogue options with Stan is him asking you how much money you have to spend on a coffin. You reply with however much gold you have at the moment (a very small amount), to which he replies (paraphrasing): "Consider cremation." You cannot access this dialogue choice to try again, it is one-time only. However, if you're carrying the large amount of gold you're supposed to use to charter the boat from Kate, and you've yet to have this dialogue with Stan, you can do it and he instead says something about how unfortunate for Guybrush that the cheapest model is just a few hundred gold more...
