* YouFightLikeACow: As you'd expect from the franchise that [[TropeNamers named the trope]], the Insult Swordfighting minigame returns...but with a twist: Because the fights take place at sea, the comebacks have to rhyme with the insults.

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: The paper voodoo dolls in the Voodoo Lady's house actually work. And Guybrush can stab them with any sharp object he has in his inventory.
** When Cutthroat Bill starts choking on his jawbreaker, Guybrush must hit him to make him spit it out. There's nothing stopping you from letting him choke for a few minutes, even after his face becomes purple...

* EdibleThemeNaming: The Goodsoup family members have soup-related first names. There's also a guest at their inn named Charles de Goulash, and rival families named the Van Salads and the Brothschilds, the latter an IncrediblyLamePun on the real-life Rothschild family. Most importantly, there's "Haggis" McMutton. While "Haggis" is technically a nickname, his real name is "Heart Liver and Kidneys Boiled in the Stomach of the Animal".
