Added DiffLines:

* PirateSong: Three pirates sing a swinging tune called "[[https://youtu.be/y9bXjttMxKY A Pirate I Was Meant to Be]]", which is about how they're sure they can help Guybrush because they're great pirates. Guybrush wants them to stop because the song is going on too long, but the pirates find rhymes for all his protests and continue singing, until he tricks them by mentioning [[LeastRhymableWord an orange]].

* LavaIsBoilingKoolAid: The barbeque.
** Also the volcano itself. Apparently it's safe enough to stand precariously above it to toast marshmallows.
* LeastRhymableWord: "We'll surely avoid scurvy if we all eat an ''orange''."
** Em... Door-hinge...?
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to Revenge, easily qualifies. The humor in the prequel is much darker, and this game is the only one in the series to not contain any profanity.
* LighthousePoint: Spooky one on Blood Island.

** Also
There's a lava-powered barbecue on Blood Island. And apparently, the volcano itself. Apparently it's itself is safe enough to stand precariously above it to the caldera and toast marshmallows.
* LeastRhymableWord: The only way for Guybrush to stop the musical number in Act 2 is to feed his singing crew the line "We'll surely avoid scurvy if we all eat an ''orange''."
** Em... Door-hinge...?
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to Revenge, easily qualifies. The humor ''Revenge'', there's fewer dark jokes in the prequel is much darker, and this game is the only one in the series to not contain any profanity.

* TakeThat: This subtle... or maybe not so subtle jab:
-->'''Lost Welshman''': I am the ferryman between here and Skull Island, trapped for so very long in the icy ocean {{m|yst}}ists. Oh, how I hate that blasted {{m|yst}}ist.\\
'''Guybrush''': Really? I like {{m|yst}}ist. I think it's [[SceneryPorn pretty]].\\
'''Lost Welshman''': Well, ''sure'', {{m|yst}}ist is [[SceneryPorn pretty]]! But ''egad'', is it dull.

* GenderBlenderName: Parodied when Guybrush comments on Haggis [=McMutton's=] unusual name.

"Ah, so your parents were expecting a girl?"

* 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.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: When making the [[spoiler:hangover cure]] in the endgame, you can shred up your tofu mask and mix it in with the rest, with no appreciable result other than to make it even more disgusting.
