* {{Squick}}: Seeing Governor Phatt, his grotesquely obese body lying in bed, with some ugly goo being constantly fed UnwinnableByInsanity: Early versions allowed Guybrush to him through tubes.get the 6000 pieces of eight needed to hire Kate Capsize one at a time by polishing the peg leg of one of the Men of Low Moral Fiber.[[note]]It would stop giving money once you reach a certain amount, but you could delay that by buying things from the antique dealer, which could later be sold back at full price.[[/note]] Doing this bypassed learning the trick to winning the spitting contest, which was later needed to escape from a death trap. The special edition fixes this by capping the number of pieces of eight Guybrush could earn this way far, far lower.

* HilariousInHindsight: A pirate gloating about having a bucket of mud... isn't that a bit like [[PiratesOfTheCaribbean a pirate gloating about having a jar of dirt]]?

* NightmareFuel: Until [[VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland Tales]] was released, this was unqestionably the scariest of the series. For specific examples, see below.

** Guybrush's parents come back in his dream, and then their skin melts off. Then the scene goes funny again when they start dancing. But the scene goes scary again when [=LeChuck=] shows up, turns into YOU, and then kills you the same way you killed him in the first game. It's not exactly ''Film/TheExorcist'', but it can be pretty freaky when you're a kid.

** [=LeChuck=] chasing Guybrush around [[spoiler: with a voodoo doll in the tunnels beneath Dinky Island]] is terrifying. While you're desperately trying to solve the last puzzle of the game, there's this dread that at any point, [=LeChuck=] could come in and send Guybrush screaming in pain into the next room. For a little kid trying to finish the game while watching the loveable pirate being [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured]], this game is an anciety-inducing masterpiece.

* EvenBetterSequel: DarkerAndEdgier than the original but still with many of same ingredients plus a longer story with more islands and puzzles scattered around, adding a bit of non linear gameplay. Back in the day the GainaxEnding worked as a great SequelHook for a conclusion game which eventually [[WhatCouldHaveBeen never happened]] . RonGilbert is on record (2011) wishing he'd resume his trilogy some day though.

** Guybrush's beard in the original version of this game is probably about as badass as he can ever realistically hope for. The Special Edition reduces it to wispy fuzz that barely even qualifies as a beard at all, but this leads to some HilariousInHindsight moments since Guybrush spends the whole game talking about how much effort it took him to grow his beard, when it's barely even noticeable (which Wally eventually calls him out on in [[VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland the sequel]]).

** Speaking of which, Guybrush's beard and longer hair in the original version give him an odd resemblance to [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Qui-Gon Jinn]].
