!!'''Guybrush Ulysses Marley-Threepwood'''
->'''Voiced By''': Dominic Armato (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''Tales of Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge'')

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Guybrush_Threepwood_2551.jpg]]

The main hero of the ''Monkey Island'' series, Guybrush Threepwood is a likable young man who in the first game desperately wants to be a pirate. Unfortunately for Guybrush he does not have the general demeanor of a pirate, and has to get by using his quick wits to solve problems. During his pirating career Guybrush has managed to accomplish several impressive pirating feats, but no one ever gives him credit for anything he does and they treat him like a child trying to play pirate.

Guybrush's wanting something is always the main thrust of the series. In the first game he wanted to be a real pirate and impress, and then save, Governor Elaine Marley; in the second game he looked for the legendary treasure of Big Whoop; in the third game he wanted to find a ring to undo a curse on his now fiancée Elaine; in the fourth game he wanted to find the Ultimate Insult to save the Caribbean; and in ''Tales'' he wanted to find a cure for the Pox of [=LeChuck=].
Nothing much is known about Guybrush before he washed up on Melee Island. ''[=LeChuck's=] Revenge'' heavily implied in the ending that he had a mother and father who disappeared and a brother named Chuckie, but that ending has since been retconned as a magic-induced dream, so how much of it is true is questionable. For current family he is HappilyMarried to Elaine Marley.

Interestingly, the name 'Guybrush' was largely an ''{{a|rtifactTitle}}ccident'' -- Steve Purcell saved his design of the unnamed main character as 'guybrush' in D-Paint; 'guy' since they hadn't come up with a name for him yet, and 'brush' to indicate this was the brush file. They started referring to the main character as "Guybrush", and [[ThrowItIn it snowballed from there.]]
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: Almost everyone who tries to call Guybrush Threepwood by name. Including ''himself'' in chapter 4 of ''Tales'', which is something of a first.
* {{Adorkable}}
* [[spoiler: AnArmAndALeg: Morgan [=LeFlay=] cuts off his pox-ridden hand in Chapter 2 of ''Tales'' and he only gets it restored at the very end of Chapter 5.]]
* AnimalTalk: Guybrush talks to dogs... by speaking in the language of dogs! Such is the case with Spiffy in ''Secret'' and Old Blind Pew in ''Curse''. He even talks to monkeys, like Jojo Jr. (who not only understands human language, but also learned to speak in said human language too!) in ''Escape'', and Jacques (who also understands human language) in ''Tales''. In Chapter 3 of ''Tales'', [[spoiler:there are manatees that speak in their own language that Guybrush is not good at understanding. He discovers that he needs to be a successor to {{S|peaksFluentAnimal}}antino by getting the [[TranslatorMicrobes manatee language book]] from the Marquis De Singe [[GrandTheftMe via the Voodoo Lady]], and by getting the [[TranslatorCollar Tongue of the Manatee]]. Once Guybrush obtains both, he can communicate with the manatees in their own language, while the subtitles act as interpreter for the manatee language, regardless of whether you've turned them on or off.]]
* BackFromTheDead: In ''Curse'' and ''Tales'' Guybrush [[spoiler: goes through ''four'' types of death-undoing: [[FakingTheDead faked death]], {{ghost|Pirate}}, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombie]], and clean resurrection.]]
* {{Badass}}: Despite everything about him, Guybrush has managed to survive against impossible foes to become one of the most famous pirates in the seven seas without resorting to violence as a first resort, but is a competent enough fighter to survive going one-on-one with Morgan [=LeFlay=].
* BadassBeard: Is sporting one in ''Tales''. It's what convinced Winslow that he would make a great captain.
* BadassNormal: When he isn't using some sort of voodoo spell to help him out.
* BadassOnPaper: If you were to read everything Guybrush has achieved in the space of five games you'd expect him to be the most badass pirate that has ever sailed (found the legendary treasure of Big Whoop, repeatedly defeated the dread undead pirate captain [=LeChuck=], the only man to ever escape the Carnival of the Damned intact, etc.). If you were to spend the same amount of time playing as him, well...
** It is suggested he has quite a reputation. Among pirates who've never met him, at least. There's even a chain of theme restaurants based on him.
* BuffySpeak: Guybrush tends to say it whenever he comes across something he hasn't named yet. This happens quite a lot in ''Tales''.
* ButtMonkey
* TheCaptain: From time to time. A quest for a ship occurs at least once per game. The amount of respect he commands varies, more often than not, he's not taken very seriously by his crew.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Even though he is smarter than he looks, but still it is hard to determine whether he is sane or not.
* CombatPragmatist: While a skilled swordsman, he often wins fights without fighting by utilising the environment around him and some pretty unusual methods, such as a pepper mill or a bucket of fish.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Guybrush lacks a great deal of common sense, but he can be a competent swordsman.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mostly to showcase that he's not really as dumb as people think.
* [[spoiler:DiedInYourArmsTonight]]: [[spoiler:In ''Tales'', Guybrush does this right in the arms of poor, grieving Elaine after being fatally stabbed by [=LeChuck=]'s Cutlass of Kaflu, all on a starry night, in a tender, TearJerker moment at the end of Chapter 4. And after all that effort into curing everyone of the Pox of [=LeChuck=], [[TheWoobie the poor, kind woobie]] [[YouAreNotAlone truly needed a hug from her]] before he drifted off into the BigSleep of Death (don't worry, he gets better).]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He has a very impressive pirate rap sheet, but no one treats him like a pirate worthy of respect. Probably because it's Guybrush.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Especially the {{adorkable}} Guybrush.
* GeniusDitz: While he comes across as incredibly buffoonish, he is able to solve some incredibly non-intuitive puzzles.
* GenreSavvy: Depending on the situation, as having GenreBlindness makes for a good joke.
* GuileHero: He has a razor sharp wit, and usually defeats his opponents by outsmarting them. Also, while he may lack common sense and a complete educational background, he is much smarter than a majority of the characters in the series. He is also highly literate, able to read long passages of literature and pronounce extremely complex words and phrases without having to think about it or sound it out, which is surprising, as Guybrush mentions several times throughout the series that he dropped out of college and most pirates lack conventional skills in areas of schooling.
* HappilyMarried: To Elaine.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: The type of physical or emotional damage that Guybrush inflicts varies from game to game, ranging from [[AmusingInjuries slapstick]] to more serious stuff such as BuriedAlive. Naturally it's all played for laughs.
* HookHand: Gets a pretty useful one in episode 2 of ''Tales'', after Morgan cuts off his poxed left hand.
* IdiotHero: He's sort of clownish, but people tend to underestimate him.
* InnocentBlueEyes: As blue as the ocean. They often symbolize Guybrush's inexperience.
* IronButtMonkey: Takes ridiculous amounts of punishment [[spoiler: up to and including being killed]], generally in amusing ways.
* KidHero: In ''Secret'', since he is implied to be around 16 or 17 years old.
* TheKlutz
* LovableRogue
* MadLibsCatchphrase: "That's the second [adjective]est [object] I've ever seen!" and "I'm Guybrush Threepwood, mighty [profession]."
* TheMaidenNameDebate: Resulting in the hyphenated surname in the header.
* ManChild
* MasterOfUnlocking: From Chapter 2 of ''Tales'' onward, Guybrush can use his {{hook hand}} as a lockpick to unlock doors and treasure chests. [[spoiler:Of course, there are only a few items that can't be unlocked by his hook alone, and that is in the final chapter.]]
* [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya My Name Is Guybrush Threepwood!]] PrepareToDie!: He says before challenging pirates in [[YouFightLikeACow Insult Swordfighting]] in ''Secret''.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Practically Guybrush's middle name. Fortunately, he (mostly) manages to put things right again.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: While he is a genuine bumbler, he knows how to exaggerate it to his advantage.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He has trouble getting service in reputable bars because he looks like a teenager. Fortunately, such establishments are uncommon in the Caribbean. It's not clear how old he actually ''is'', just that it's older than he looks.
* OnlySaneMan: When he's being with his crew.
* OurHeroIsDead: Late in ''Tales''.
* ParentalAbandonment: His parents allegedly disappeared a long time ago and he does not know where they went.
* SailorsPonytail: He keeps his hair in a short ponytail.
* [[SuperNotDrowningSkills Super Not Drowning Skills for Ten Minutes]]: These are the breath-holding skills that he had developed in college when he was young.
* TalkingToHimself: Dominic Armato, Guybrush's voice actor, also does the Duck in ''Escape'' and the Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma in ''Tales''.
* TookALevelInBadass: Zigzagged, as his goofiness sometimes gets in the way, but still present since he starts his journey as a pirate wannabe. He's usually trashed in the first act of a given game, only to become wiser and more powerful as the story goes by, usually with the help of some artifact or with some LevelGrinding involved. And it takes guts to share a room with [=LeChuck=].
* TookALevelInJerkass: In ''[=LeChuck=]'s Revenge'' he is noticeably more egotistical and meaner than in ''Secret'', proud of his previous defeat of [=LeChuck=] and trying to act more like a real pirate. This leads to Elaine breaking up with him prior to the game.
* TheTrickster: How he defeats his stronger and tougher opponents.
* VerbalBusinessCard: "I'm Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate."
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to Be Porcelain?]]
* YouFightLikeACow: A master at it.

!!'''(Ex-)[[note]]As of ''VideoGame/{{Escape|FromMonkeyIsland}}''[[/note]]Governor Elaine Marley-Threepwood'''
->'''Voiced By''': Alexandra Boyd (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Tales of Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge''); Charity James (''Escape from Monkey Island'')

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Elaine_Marley_8888.jpg]]

The much beloved governor of the Tri-Island Area, specifically Melee Island, Booty Island, and Plunder Island. Elaine Marley first met Guybrush Threepwood when he was working to complete his three pirate trials on Melee Island. It was LoveAtFirstSight. Before that happened though Elaine had rejected the advances of the Pirate [=LeChuck=], who came back and kidnapped her, prompting Guybrush to mount a rescue mission to Monkey Island. His efforts proved pointless, as Elaine had defied the usual DamselInDistress stereotype by escaping and coming up with a plan to destroy [=LeChuck=], which failed.

Since then Elaine has been the center of a LoveTriangle between herself, Guybrush, and [=LeChuck=]. She grew closer to Guybrush while fending off [=LeChuck's=] advances/kidnappings. Elaine and Guybrush eventually got engaged and married in ''Curse'', which did not deter [=LeChuck=] in the slightest. Between Guybrush and Elaine it is obvious that Elaine is the one that wears the pants in the relationship.

At the end of ''Escape'' Elaine renounced her governorship so she could sail around the Caribbean at her leisure with Guybrush.
----
* TheAce: She's good at everything. The games would be very short if only [[TheMillstone Guybrush]] knew how to stay of out trouble.
* [[ActionGirlfriend Action Wife]]
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: Tries to moderate Guybrush's shenanigans, with mixed results.
* DamselOutOfDistress: For those few times when she is captured, she gets herself out of trouble.

* DemotedToExtra: In ''Revenge''
* {{Guile Hero}}ine: As of episode 5 in ''Tales''
* HappilyMarried: To Guybrush.
* LargeHam: Whenever her mind is altered by [[spoiler:being poxed]] or [[spoiler:turned into an undead bride]] in ''Tales''.
** Or when she's just [[WomanScorned really pissed off]], in ''Monkey Island 2: Special Edition''.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Completely drops her British accent in ''Escape'' when voiced by Charity James only to pick it right back up in ''Tales'' when Alexandra Boyd returns to the role.
* TheOtherDarrin: But only for one game, after which the original voice actress returned.
* PimpedOutDress: There are two of them. One is at the end of ''Curse'', [[spoiler:when Elaine is in a FairytaleWeddingDress similar to Disney/{{Cinderella}}'s from Disney, with a [[FlowerInHerHair white flower tiara]] instead of a wedding veil on her head, as she and Guybrush are now HappilyMarried and [[RidingIntoTheSunset sailing off into the sunset]]]]. The other is in ''Tales'' Chapter 5, [[spoiler:when she willingly becomes [=LeChuck=]'s demon bride and gets a {{Goth}}ic version of a LittleBlackDress (complete with a [[{{Stripperific}} revealing]] GemEncrusted [[ImpossiblyLowNeckline black bustier/corset]] worn under a see-though sheer black fabric sleeveless blouse with a black sash belt, a dark gray broomstick skirt and black dress boots, along with gem encrusted black OperaGloves, and an [[HypnoTrinket eerie-glowing black]] [[RequisiteRoyalRegalia tiara]]), which she wears through the remainder of the game, even when she is reverted to her no-longer demonic self.]]
* PirateGirl
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: A loved, helpful and competent governor.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Her consideration of Guybrush, from a kid-brother-figure to a more or less equal partner is one of the few things that bothered Ron Gilbert about the sequels.
* ShoutOut: Her first name is a reference to Elaine from ''Film/TheGraduate,'' and is likewise yelled by Guybrush as it is in the film. Her last name is a reference to Music/BobMarley.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: Elaine falls into this category, although she often has blue eyes in other games.
* TakenForGranite: Gold, actually, in ''Curse''
* {{Talking to H|imself}}erself: Besides Elaine, the only other character Boyd has voiced is the [[FakeAmerican American-accented]] [[CrossDressingVoices Son Pirate]] at the very end of ''Curse'', though both characters have never met each other.
* {{Tomboy}}
* {{Tsundere}}

!!'''The [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Ghost Zombie Demon Statue]] [[NoodleIncident Walrus]] [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Pirate]] [=G.P. LeChuck=]'''
->'''Voiced By''': Earl Boen (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''Tales of Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge''), Kevin Blackton (Human [=LeChuck=] in ''Tales of Monkey Island'')

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ghost_Pirate_LeChuck_7575.jpg]]

The BigBad of the series, [=LeChuck=] is obsessed with taking over the Caribbean and marrying Elaine Marley. Before the start of the series [=LeChuck=] went off to find the legendary treasure of Big Whoop in order to impress Elaine. Big Whoop turned out be a portal to Hell that transformed him into a demon capable of summoning the undead to serve as his crew, as well as a bunch of other powers such as flying and shooting fire.

Every game so far has had him try to take over the Caribbean in some way, usually with a type of voodoo weapon. And every time, Guybrush Threepwood has stopped and killed him. But since he's already undead [=LeChuck=] always manages to come back in some form. The only exceptions to this were in ''[=LeChuck's=] Revenge'' when he was specifically targeting Guybrush, and in ''Tales'', [[spoiler: when he finally succeeded in turning the tables around and killing Guybrush in an ambush thanks to some voodoo trust charm the villain had worn when he was human; for a short while he emerged victorious... until Guybrush managed to come BackFromTheDead in order to stop him once and for all]].

Despite the more comical aspects of his personality [=LeChuck=] is considered very dangerous by other pirates. He sees Guybrush as his greatest enemy.

[=LeChuck's=] apppearance has changed with each game. In ''Secret'' he appeared as a ghost; in ''Revenge'' he was a zombie; in ''Curse'' he looked like a demon; in ''Escape'' he could change his appearance between the three at will; and in ''Tales'' he alternates between zombie and demon.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Capable of this even before the series began.
* BeardOfEvil: [=LeChuck=]'s beard is very impressive, whether it's ghostly and wriggling, zombiefied and slimy, or formed from the very flames of Hell itself. Mostly it hides the fact that from the third game onward [=LeChuck=] has a really tiny head.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: For most of the series [=LeChuck=] may seem cartoonishly over-the-top, but let's not forget that he acquired his original ghost crew by sacking a pirate ship and murdering the entire crew. Kind of puts it into perspective when he's making ridiculous threats and spending entire acts failing to kill Guybrush.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Except in ''Escape'' where, in a surprise twist, he's revealed to be TheDragon to the game's ''real'' main villain, Ozzie Mandrill.]]
* ComplexityAddiction: His convoluted plans only enhance his mystique.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In ''Tales'' [=LeChuck=] averts BondVillainStupidity for the most part, took advantage of Guybrush's innate puzzle solving abilities,[[spoiler: and kills Guybrush quick and to the point when he gets the chance.]]
* TheDreaded: A fearsome scourge. Even out-universe in ''Revenge''.
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies
* [[spoiler:EvilSoundsDeep]]: [[spoiler:When he becomes a human who pretends to be good-natured up until the time that he kills Guybrush in ''Tales''.]]
* GhostPirate
* HeelFaceTurn: In ''Tales'', [[spoiler:later revealed as a HeelFaceMole]].
* ImpersonatingAnOfficer: [[spoiler:In this case, Sheriff Fester Shinetop, impersonated and disguised so well by [=LeChuck=] himself.]]
* JokerImmunity: Hence the lengthy title.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: He even insists on talking about his plans to Guybrush when the latter insists he doesn't want to listen.
* LargeHam
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnAghYUxLms LeChuck's Theme]].
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [=LeChuck=] has, by the end of ''Tales'', been a human pirate, a ghost pirate, a zombie pirate, a demon pirate, a living statue pirate, a giant walrus pirate (not shown in any game yet, but mentioned in ''Tales''), a demon pirate again, a human pirate again, and a demon pirate ''god''.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: He is quite dimwitted, but makes up for it by being very evil. He displays an extreme fondness for horrible torture, is a mass murderer, and he has vast voodoo powers and nearly endless hoard of undead crewmen.
* TheOtherDarrin: Full circle. Goes from Earl Boen to Adam Harrington to Kevin Blackton and back to Earl Boen.
* ResurrectedRomance: If his origin story is accurate.
* ResurrectiveImmortality
* TalkingToHimself: Adam Harrington, TheOtherDarrin for [=LeChuck=] in the PC download version of Chapter 1 of ''Tales'', also does the voice for "Moose" Muszalski in Chapter 3, though the two characters have never met each other.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: In the first game he effortlessly passes as a living human. By the fourth game he can transform between his ghost, zombie and demon forms at will.

!!'''The Voodoo Lady'''
->'''Voiced By''': Leilani Jones (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge''); Alison Ewing (''Tales of Monkey Island'')

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Voodoo_Lady_2119.jpg]]

The resident MsExposition of the series, the woman only known as The Voodoo Lady has appeared in every game to give Guybrush and the player an overview of what Guybrush will do over the course of the game, though in a vague way that most likely will not make sense to the player the first time around. In ''Secret'' it was completely optional to visit the Voodoo Lady, but in subsequent games it is impossible to proceed unless Guybrush goes to her place to learn what to do. Half the time Guybrush visits her to procure some voodoo item he needs to complete a puzzle.

Little is known about her past. She always manages to have a store on one of the islands Guybrush goes to per game, and her knowledge of voodoo lore is very extensive. ''Tales'' revealed some information about her past. In the past she was in a relationship with Coronado De Cava, who went off to find La Esponja Grande for her and disappeared. In "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood" [=LeChuck=] accuses her of manipulating the events of the entire series, including his own actions, an accusation which she denies. It is unclear if anything [=LeChuck=] says is true, since [[spoiler:accusing the Voodoo Lady and getting her thrown in jail furthers his own plans to rule the Caribbean. At the end she is shown grinning evilly over [=LeChuck's=] voodoo essence, so it remains to be seen if she is evil.]]
----
* AscendedExtra: In her first appearance, she was a side character that you could go the entire game without meeting. She plays a major role in the sequel, and goes on to become a staple character in the rest of the series.
* BigGood: As she gives Guybrush the various items he needs to defeat [=LeChuck=], and is in general dedicated to preserving the harmony of the natural order...
** [[spoiler:BiggerBad: However, [=LeChuck=] claims that she has been manipulating him and Guybrush all these years for some nefarious purpose, and the end of ''Tales'' has her chuckling evilly after gaining a jar containing [=LeChuck=]'s voodoo essence. Elaine certainly believes [=LeChuck=]'s claim, but Guybrush isn't so sure.]]
* BigBeautifulWoman: De Cava certainly thinks so. Guyrbush is revolted by the prospect.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: She may have orchestrated the events of the entire series to get her hands on [=LeChuck's=] voodoo essence.]]
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her Barkeep]]: Only called the Voodoo Lady by everyone.
** This actually Lampshaded by [=LeChuck=] in "Tales" with him asking if anybody actually knows what her name is.
** In Chapter 1 of ''Tales'', Guybrush asks what her name is, and she refuses to give her name, as telling another her name would give them power over her, for [[IKnowYourTrueName names have power]]. [[SureLetsGoWithThat Guybrush's probably does as well.]]
* FortuneTeller
* IHaveManyNames
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M5f3uYsv9I&feature=related Voodoo Lady Theme]]. Present in all games.
* SassyBlackWoman: Can get like this when Guybrush acts stupid.
* {{Talking to H|imself}}erself: The Voodoo Lady's voice actress, Leilani Jones-Wilmore, does the voice for Carla the Swordmaster in the Special Edition of ''Secret'', while her other voice actress, Alison Ewing, does the voice for Bosun Kathryn Krebbs in ''Tales'', though all three of these characters have never met each other.
* ThemedTarotDeck: Has a set in ''Tales'' which she narrates the events of the previous chapter.
* WitchDoctor: She can create lots of voodoo trinkets, but her specialty is voodoo dolls.

[[folder: Other Characters]]
!!'''Smilin' Stan S. Stanman''', or just '''Stan'''
->'''Voiced By''': Pat Pinney (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge''); Pat Fraley (''Escape from Monkey Island''); Gavin Hammon (''Tales of Monkey Island'')

A salesman that Guybrush runs into in each game. In ''Secret'' Stan sold previously-owned ships, in ''Revenge'' previously-owned coffins, in ''Curse'' life insurance, in ''Escape'' time shares, and in ''Tales'' memorabilia of Guybrush's trial while acting as the prosecution. The quality of the items Stan sells is always questionable, but Guybrush always tricks or rips him off anyway, so it evens out.
----
* HonestJohnsDealership
* {{Leitmotif}}: His theme from ''[=LeChuck's Revenge=]'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUawtbNDOoE Stan's Previously-Owned Coffins]], has become this for him, appearing in every game since. His first appearance at Stan's Previously-Owned Vessels, however, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYyvOzWvi5s has a very different theme]].
* MilkingTheGiantCow: Although it seems to be more of a tic than a way of emphasizing.
* TalkingToHimself: Besides Stan, his voice actor Pat Pinney does the voices of Elaine Marley's grillcook and the moose in the Special Edition of ''Revenge'', though neither character has met with each other.
* UnmovingPlaid: It's so iconic that even in the 3D games, the animators went ''out of their way'' to get his jacket to maintain an UnmovingPlaid pattern.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Either to avoid angry customers, or because of something Guybrush did.

!!'''Wally B. Feed'''
->'''Voiced By''': Neil Ross (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge'')

A cartographer Guybrush meets on Scabb Island in ''Revenge''. Wally helps Gubyrush reassemble the map to Big Whoop, and is later kidnapped by [=LeChuck=] to prevent Guybrush from finding the treasure. Guybrush sneaks into [=LeChuck's=] and rescues Wally, but they get separated when [[spoiler: Guybrush blows up [=LeChuck's=] fortress]].

Wally reappears in ''Curse'', working for [=LeChuck=] as the dreaded pirate Bloodnose. Wally is the one that tells Guybrush the engagement ring he gave to Elaine is cursed, after she had already put it on. He is last seen in [=LeChuck's=] Carnival of the Damned as one of the attractions.

Wally is the most innocent character in the series, which is why the developers had so much fun torturing him.
----
* BadassBookworm: Wally both subverts this and plays it straight when he's "Bloodnose".
* BlindWithoutEm: He cannot see a thing without his monocle. Too bad Guybrush has to steal it to complete a puzzle.
* ButWaitTheresMore: You'll also get a set of audio books on parrot!
* DistressedDude: In both games he appears in he gets kidnapped and chained to the ceiling.
* HighClassGlass: Wears a monocle in ''Revenge'', which is replaced with an eyepatch in ''Curse''.
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: He tries to stop Guybrush in ''Curse'', but Guybrush is able to convince him that he's not villain material.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: As Bloodnose. The only way for Guybrush to beat him is to talk him down.
* TalkingToHimself: Neil Ross, Wally's voice actor, does the voices of Rum Rogers, Jr. and Filbert the Gardener in the Special Edition of ''Revenge'', and Hugo the Perfume-Spritzer and Pirate #4 in ''Escape'', though neither characters have talked to each other.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In ''Curse'', he was last seen hanging in [=LeChuck's=] amusement park, and hasn't been seen since.

!!'''Murray the Demonic Talking Skull'''
->'''Voiced By''': Denny Delk (''The Curse of Monkey Island'', ''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''Tales of Monkey Island''))

Murray the Demonic Talking Skull was a member of [=LeChuck's=] undead pirate crew with dreams of WorldDomination. Guybrush blasted Murray and his crewmates with a cannon in order to save Elaine, reducing him to a skull. Murray appears throughout ''Curse'', going on at length about how he will take over the world with his legion of the damned. Despite destroying his body Guybrush gets along well with Murray.

Murray makes a cameo in ''Escape'' as a bouncer at Planet Threepwood, and has a more important appearance in ''Tales''.
----
* AscendedExtra: Murray's appearance in initial test versions of ''Curse'' were so popular with the playtesters that he was given more appearances throughout the game.
* CardCarryingVillain: Is he ever.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: In ''Tales''.
* DemBones
* EvilLaugh: "Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
* FauxAffablyEvil: Sometimes.
--> '''Murray''': ''Could you pick me up so I can bite you?''
--> '''Guybrush''': ''NO!''
--> '''Murray''': ''I just thought I'd ask.''
* FriendlyEnemy: With Guybrush (except in ''Tales'').
* HarmlessVillain: It's hard to take over the world when you're a skull that gets knocked around by everything.
* LaughablyEvil: Fans of the series consider him to be one of the funniest characters.
* LargeHam: He declarations of conquest are quite grandiose.
* LosingYourHead: For all of his appearances.
* OracularHead: While not oracular at all, is still a talking skull.
* PokeThePoodle: When he threatens Mort the Gravedigger.
* TalkingToHimself: Besides Murray, his voice actor does Skully and the Father Pirate in ''Curse''; Mister Santiago in ''Escape''; one of the Pirate Leaders, the Narrator, and the Citizen of Mêlée in the Special Edition of ''Secret''; and Fred (the Man of Low Moral Fiber), Bruno, Larry, the Narrator (again) and the Voodoo Priest in the Special Edition of ''Revenge''. Neither character has ever met each other.
* ThrowItIn: Most of his dialogue in ''Curse'' was improvised by his voice actor, who just decided to [[ChewingTheScenery Chew The Scenery]] and play it for laughs.

!!'''Meathook'''
->'''Voiced By''': Creator/CamClarke (''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'')

Meathook is one of the people Guybrush recruits for his crew to sail to Monkey Island to look for Elaine. Like the rest of the crew he mutinies and ends up stranded on Monkey Island. He returned in ''Escape'', having made it back to Melee Island, where he started a career in wax paintings.

Meathook has two hooks for hands, is bald, wears an eyepatch, and has a skull tattoo on his chest that he can make talk. Meathook lost both his hands to a "terrifying creature" that Guybrush has to touch to get Meathook to join his crew. [[spoiler: It's a parrot.]]

His house is the one that you need the rubber-chicken-with-a-pulley-in-the-middle to get to.
----
* TheBigGuy: Of Guybrush's crew.
* HookHand: Two of them.
* RealMenWearPink: Despite his gruff exterior, he enjoys painting in his spare time.

!!'''Herman Toothrot'''
->'''Voiced By''': Creator/WallyWingert (''Escape from Monkey Island'', ''The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition'', ''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge'')

Herman Toothrot is a hermit Guybrush meets when he first arrives on Monkey Island. Herman originally found Monkey Island on the ''Sea Monkey'' with his crewmmate, who later accidentally hung himself. He helps Guybrush out by explaining various places in Monkey Island, assists him with some puzzles involving the Monkey Island Cannibals, and is possibly the one who give him a ride back to Melee Island.

Herman make small cameos in ''Revenge'' and ''Curse'', then makes an important return in ''Escape'', where his backstory is {{Retcon}}ned into being the grandfather of Elaine Marley. At the end of ''Escape'' he takes the job of Governor back from Elaine, allowing her to sail the high seas with Guybrush.
----
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Who does he keep talking to? What people watching?
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: SanitySlippage after years of isolation.
* ContinuitySnarl: The only way his backstory makes sense is if he was knocked into the whirlpool by Ozzie Mandrill, washed up on Monkey Island, got amnesia, got off of Monkey Island, went to Melee Island, bought the Sea Monkey so he could return to Monkey Island for whatever reason, got a crewmate, returned to Monkey Island, and lost his ship and crewmate.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: In the first and second games.
* IceCreamKoan: When he on Dinky Island acting as a guru, most of his wisdom are these.
* LukeIAmYourFather: In ''Escape'', he's revealed to be Elaine grandfather and Guybrush's grandfather-in-law. Upon learning of the latter, he immediately wished that he had amnesia again.
* {{Robinsonade}}: On Monkey Island.
* TalkingToHimself: Besides Herman, his voice actor Creator/WallyWingert does the voices of two other pirates in ''Escape''; Biff the Ghost and one Insult Swordfight opponent in the Special Edition of ''Secret''; the Potman and Greg in the Special Edition of ''Revenge''; and Franklin (the Man of Low Moral Fiber) in both latter games. Neither of them have ever met each other, however.

!!'''Largo [=LaGrande=]'''
->'''Voiced By''': Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor (''Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: [=LeChuck's=] Revenge'')

Largo [=LaGrande=] was [=LeChuck's=] second-in-command when he was alive. After he died Largo moved to Scabb Island, where he used his status as [=LeChuck's=] second-in-command to bully the island populace. Guybrush eventually drives off Largo, but not before he steals [=LeChuck's=] beard from Guybrush, which he uses to resurrect [=LeChuck=]. Afterward he only appears to get berated by [=LeChuck=], and disappears [[spoiler: after Guybrush blows up [=LeChuck's=] fortress]]. He hasn't been seen since.
----
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: He is the head of Scabb Island, but only because he bullies everyone else, and is hated by everyone in turn.
* TheDragon: To [=LeChuck=].
* NapoleonComplex: He is the shortest person on Scabb Island.
* TalkingToHimself: In the Special Edition, we hear Largo [=LaGrande=] berate Mad Marty after the Bucket of Mud incident, which is very odd because both characters are voiced by James Arnold Taylor; in other words, it sounds more like Taylor is chiding himself! Besides these two, Taylor has also provided voices for the Spitmaster and the Fisherman, and that's pretty much it.
* VillainousCrossdresser: Implied. Guybrush needs to steal a bra that belongs to him from the laundrymat, though we never actually see him wear it.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse

!!'''Marquis De Singe'''
->'''Voiced By''': Jared Emerson-Johnson (''Tales of Monkey Island'')

The other villain of ''Tales'', the Marquis De Singe is a MadScientist conducting experiments on Flotsam Island, using a wind machine to bring new test subjects to the island. When De Singe sees that Guybrush's hand has been cursed with the Pox of [=LeChuck=], he suspects that it may contain the secret of immortality and tries to remove Guybrush's hand. He succeeds and creates an immortality elixir out of the Pox, but discovers that the elixir only works for so long. To fix that, De Singe tries to pulverize [[spoiler: Elaine Marley-Threepwood]], who had already been infected by the Pox, and spread her ashes into the atmosphere, infecting everyone in the planet so he will have enough subjects to make elixir out of.

In the end he is stopped by Guybrush, who [[spoiler: destroys the machine in the turban that was sucking the Pox out of his hand, which in turn knocks De Singe into his wind machine, pulverizing him into dust]].
----
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Looks down upon people who believe in voodoo...despite the fact that voodoo is what he's using as a main component in his immortality serum.
* FrenchJerk: [[spoiler:Subverted, kind of/maybe. [[UnexplainedAccent Despite his name, accent, mannerisms, constant use of French language phrases, and backstory of having worked in the court of King Louis, he never claims to be French and even flat-out denies it when the topic comes up.]]]]
* ForScience: Why he is initially conducting experiments, before he sets his sights on living forever.
* HealingFactor: When he gains Pox-induced immortality, he gains the ability to heal from all injuries as well.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: Knocked into the wind machine that he's been using to cause trouble for everyone.]]
* ImmortalitySeeker: He certainly is one, and he's willing to damn the rest of the world to accomplish it.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: That, or [[AndIMustScream he's still alive as scattered dust]].]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGGdBzCyAyo De Singe's theme.]]
* MadDoctor/[[MadScientist Scientist]]
* MadeOfIron: While under the effects of the morality serum.
* SissyVillain: He is not one of the strongest opponents, which is why he relies on tools and machines.
* TalkingToHimself: Jared Emerson-Johnson, De Singe's voice actor, has also provided the voice of one of [=McGillicutty=]'s crew members of the Spoon Isle Trio, though the two have never met.
* [[spoiler:UnexplainedAccent]]: [[spoiler:Played with, when De Singe is offended at the implication that he's French. Even though he's got the accent... and the outfit ...and the name...]]
** [[spoiler:Could be that he emigrated to France at some point and picked up the culture. He ''was'' one of King Louis' physicians after all.]]

!!'''Morgan [=LeFlay=]'''
->'''Voiced By''': Nikki Rapp (''Tales of Monkey Island'')

Morgan [=LeFlay=] is a pirate bounty hunter and huge Guybrush Threepwood fangirl hired by the Marquis De Singe to track down Guybrush and retrieve his Poxed hand. She does, happy with the chance to meet her hero, and returns the hand to De Singe. De Singe then sends Morgan to bring back the rest of Guybrush, but when she tracks him down they are swallowed by a giant manatee. The two escape by working together, and Morgan reluctantly brings Guybrush back to De Singe.

Feeling bad about selling Guybrush out, Morgan tries to get Guybrush's Poxed hand back to him. [[spoiler: [=LeChuck=] kills her before she gets the chance. In the Crossroads Guybrush has to convince Morgan that she did not waste her life. She in turn helps Guybrush defeat [=LeChuck=] again. The post-credits [[TheStinger stinger]] shows Morgan giving the Voodoo Lady [=LeChuck's=] remains in exchange for letting her return to the land of the living as a ghost.]]
----
* ActionGirl
* AntiVillain: While she hates pirates, Morgan does feel bad about hunting down Guybrush.
* {{Ascended Fan|boy}}girl: She is a huge Guybrush fangirl and is delighted to meet him the first time, even if it is to capture his hand.
** As an example, she trained herself to hold her breath for five minutes to emulate Guybrush.
* TheBeard: When she poses as Guybrush's wife in the manatee.
* BountyHunter
* CuteGhostGirl: [[spoiler:When she is in the Crossroads.]]
* CynicismCatalyst: We learn from De Cava in Chapter 3 that she was recently devastated by the death of her Uncle Jugbender, and was probably seeking {{revenge}} on someone who killed him, as described by her [[TalkingInYourSleep mumble in her sleep]]: "[[AndThisIsFor THIS is for JUGBENDER!]]"
* [[spoiler:{{Died in Your|ArmsTonight}} HookHand [[DiedInYourArmsTonight Tonight]]]]: [[spoiler:Sadly, Morgan does this in Guybrush's arms (on a starry night, no less) after telling him about the incident in De Singe's "laboratorium". Poor Morgan and Guybrush.]]
* DisposableFiance: In Chapter 3, we learn from the Assassin's Ledger and the tattoo on her arm that she [[http://web.archive.org/web/20130624045518/http://www.miwiki.net/Morgan_Leflay once had a first love]] named Gustavo (or "Gus" as her tattoo calls him), but once she became Pirate Hunter, she probably had no use for him and... let's say... disposed of him, even though her Pirate Hunter's Code was not to "kill someone [she wasn't] getting paid to", and Gustavo was her exception.
** One suspects that a bad breakup could have something to do with Gus going from 'boyfriend' to 'pro bono hit job'.
* FriendToAllLivingThings[=/=]SpeaksFluentAnimal: It is revealed that not only does she like monkeys (she [[SpeaksFluentAnimal speaks a bit of monkey language]]), she also has a pet named Gomez, and she even loves cute {{p|irateParrot}}arrots, especially one that is made of pyrite, which she says she'll keep as a souvenir once she's done with Guybrush.
* HelloNurse: Even Murray, who is nothing more than a disembodied skull, tries to hit on her.
* ICallItVera[=/=]TheXOfY: According to the Assassin's Ledger and De Cava, she purchased a ship for 10,000 pieces of silver, the same price that was paid to her for killing Prince Hipolito de Toro, and called it "The Knave of Toro" after her exact same victim! Creepy!
** Also, the sword that she has is called the Blade of Dragotta, simply because it has the name of her {{mentor|s}}, [[ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming Dan]]Literature/{{t|heDivineComedy}}e Dragotta, written on it!
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure
* [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee The Bounty Hunter Who Says Squee]]: Her reaction to meeting Guybrush.
* MsFanservice
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:Her first altruistic attempt at helping Guybrush results in her getting stabbed.]]
** [[spoiler: Or does it?]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Starts off aggressive, though upbeat, becomes nicer the longer she spends time with Guybrush.

!!'''Coronado De Cava'''
->'''Voiced By''': Andrew Chaikin, a.k.a. Kid Beyond (''Tales of Monkey Island'')

Coronado De Cava is the ex-boyfriend of the Voodoo Lady, who went in search of La Esponja Grande in order to impress her. During his search for the sponge, De Cava and his crew were swallowed by a giant manatee. Already an unstable man, De Cava went insane trying to escape from the manatee.

When Guybrush and Morgan [=LeFlay=] meet up with De Cava, both of them pretend to be a couple so De Cava does not think Guybrush is in a relationship with the Voodoo Lady and kill him. Guybrush, Morgan, De Cava, and his crew escape from the manatee, but when he sees that Guybrush has La Esponja Grande and is convinced that Guybrush's relationship is a fake (unaware that Guybrush had manipulated the Voodoo Lady's locket), he attacks Guybrush's ship. Luckily the manatee re-swallows De Cava and his entire ship.
----
* CrazyPrepared
* EvilCounterpart: To Guybrush.
* {{Expy}}: Coronado is [[Literature/DonQuixote a Spaniard driven to madness and desperate to accomplish great deeds for his love.]]
* [[AFatherToHisMen A Father to His Crew]]: De Cava lampshades this in Chapter 3 when he tells Guybrush and Morgan about his crew members (Bugeye, Moose, Santino and Noogie), "I may have been a stern leader, but I loved them like sons."
* LevelGrinding: His preferred method of puzzle-solving.
* TalkingToHimself: We hear De Cava speak with Bugeye in Chapter 3, and both characters are voiced by Chaikin, who also provides the voices for Joaquin D'Oro (Chapter 4), Murkel Trenchfoot, [=McGillicutty=] and two of his crew members of the Spoon Isle Trio.
* {{Yandere}}: He really loves the Voodoo Lady, and is more than willing to kill anyone who stands between them.

!!'''Reginald Van Winslow'''
->'''Voiced By''': Roger Jackson (''Tales of Monkey Island'', ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory'')

Reginald Van Winslow is the captain of the Screaming Narwhal (which he had seized by knocking off the previous captain while losing his Club 41 "probationary membership" card in the process) until Guybrush wins the ship by knocking Winslow off of it. Afterwards Winslow stays on as Guybrush's first mate throughout the rest of the game, and in the end [[spoiler: hooks up with the gender-ambiguous merperson Anemone]].

Notable for being the only crewmember Guybrush has ever had that fully got along with him and never mutinied.

Winslow also heavily fetishizes maps and people pointing at maps, including Guybrush.

Winslow also appears in ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory''. He introduces the player to the Inventory, and runs the poker games.
----
* AmbiguouslyGay: Both in his attention to Guybrush, and in a far more literal sense in that [[spoiler: the person he ends up with is of indeterminate gender, making whether he is gay truly ambiguous, even to him!]]
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Knocking Winslow off the Screaming Narwhal is how Guybrush gets him as a reliable first mate.
* HypercompetentSidekick
* LargeHam: Like everyone else [[spoiler: when they get really Poxed]].
* TalkingToHimself: Besides Winslow, his voice actor Roger Jackson provides the voices of Hemlock [=McGee=], one unnamed bartender of Club 41, and Galeb in ''Tales''; the troll, one of the Pirate Leaders, Fred (the Man of Low Moral Fiber) and his rat, Jojo Sr., Spiffy the Dog, the Piranha Poodles and Meathook's parrot in the Special Edition of ''Secret''; and Bart, Governor Phatt, the rat (again) and Toothrot's parrot in the Special Edition of ''Revenge''. Neither of them have talked with each other, though.

!!'''Ozzie Mandrill'''
->'''Voiced By''': Nick Tate (''VideoGame/EscapeFromMonkeyIsland'')

Ozzie Mandrill is a ruthless Australian businessman who spends all of the fourth game attempting to gain control of the entire Caribbean, be it through simply buying up property, hostile takeovers, or political manuevers (or secretly committing crimes).
----
* AmbitionIsEvil
* ArchEnemy: To [[spoiler:Horatio/Herman]]
* BadassBoast
* [[spoiler:BigBad: In ''Escape''. [=LeChuck=] is still present, but he acts as Ozzie's dragon.]]
* BondVillainStupidity: Subverted. He realizes that keeping Guybrush alive could hurt his plans, but he's too eager to have a hostage. So, he [[spoiler:instead opts to maroon him on Monkey Island where he won't foil Ozzie's plans, but can still be used as a hostage if worst comes to worst. This apparently-smarter move ends up biting him in the end, though, but more through sheer bad luck than any ineptitude on Ozzie's part.]]
* ButtMonkey: When he tries to make a bank transaction, but not really anywhere else in the game [[spoiler:unless you count him being crushed to death by [=LeChuck's=] OneWingedAngel form]].
* TheChessmaster
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: It's mentioned at one point that this was almost his undoing in his earlier years because it made the honest corporate executives refuse to do business with him.
* EvilGloating
* EvilLaugh
* GrumpyOldMan
* HopelessBossFight: You can challenge him to Insult Swordfighting, but it's impossible to respond to his ridiculously Australian insults in anything other than confusion. Luckily for Guybrush, the only thing Ozzie does if he wins is kick Guybrush out of his house.
* {{Jerkass}}: And not in a funny way either. He's just a mean-spirited, unpleasant person.
* KnightOfCerebus[=/=]VileVillainSaccharineShow: See TheStraightMan below.
* LargeHam: Though he really doesn't start showing it until [[spoiler:Guybrush learns that he's in cahoots with [=LeChuck=].]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:If he'd waited one more second before using the Ultimate Insult on [=LeChuck=], Guybrush would've been killed before he had a chance to activate his own Ultimate Insult. He might have still been defeated by Horatio and Jojo, but he would have at least succeeded in killing Guybrush. Because of his actions, he didn't even accomplish ''that''.]]
* PerpetualFrowner
* SmugSnake
* TheStraightMan: Although ''Escape'' is a pretty wacky entry in the series, he is an almost entirely serious, humorless character [[spoiler:even before you realize that he's the new main villain]]. Some critics, expecting an actually-funny antagonist, complained about this aspect back when the game was first released.
** One particularly subtle demonstration of this trope is that he's the only character to avert the game's RunningGag of calling Elaine "Mrs. Marley" instead of "Mrs. Threepwood".
* [[spoiler:UngratefulBastard]]
* UnusualEuphemism:
-->"Great Barrier Reef!"
-->"What in the name of Adam Smith's Invisible Hand is that?"
-->"What the didgery-doo was that?!"
* XanatosSpeedChess: [[spoiler:Within ''minutes'' after his original plan to kill all pirates, a plan that he spent ''years'' on, fails, he improvises and begins carrying out a new one, and he might have succeeded if Guybrush, Horatio, and Jojo hadn't stopped him.]]
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: To Horatio T. Marley.]]
