* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: One of Guybrush's fake Griswold aliases is "Won Ton," which he explains by saying his "ancestors were from the Orient." The term "Orient" was already quite outdated and offensive in 1997 when the game was released, though obviously not in the 17th century when it takes place.

* EasierThanEasy: Like in the previous game, the game has a lite mode with many puzzles dummied out. [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels Megamonkey is the normal mode]].

* BangBangBang: During the ship combat sections, the increasingly powerful cannons get louder; The basic starting cannons sound akin to a bottle being uncorked, while the Destructo-Matic T47 is hilariously and exaggeratedly loud.

** Played straight between chapters where some of the items that no longer have a use are lost. Some other items with no function, bizarrely, remain in the inventory.

* BaldOfEvil: Captain Rottingham becomes this after Guybrush puts lice on his comb and Haggis cuts his hair off.
** The Lost Welshman says that King Andre is "as ruthless as he is bald"

to:

* BaitAndSwitchComment: When you cheat to beat Van Helgen at the banjo duel, he'll sputter about how you're just a filthy cheat who shot his banjo... which must mean you ''are'' a pirate and therefore worthy to serve as his captain.

** Examining the crack in the Goodsoup crypt causes Guybrush to pop-up from the inaccessable stump of VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland in Melee Island (the one with the often misunderstood joke ''Insert Disk #absurd_number''). The original (now crude by 1997) EGA graphics and SMI-music are used and Guybrush mentions that he feels like he's been here before, maybe in a dream. Luckily he can't exit to the other side, because he isn't aware that [[AssPull a killing horde is in his way]].

** Edward Helgen mentions that he and his fellow barber pirates used to have a fourth member named Dominique, a reference to the SpySpeak gag from the first game ("Do you have a cousin named Sven?" "No, but I once had a barber named Dominique").
