Fridge: Tales of Monkey Island

  • Fridge Brilliance: When LeChuck gets his voodoo form back, he goes back to having his original voice actor, Earl Boen, and, from then on, starts to make smarter and more dangerous moves. Basically, the true LeChuck is back.
    • It's not huge, but I noticed Guybrush walks differently when he's on a ship. He's got sea legs!
    • In Chapter 1, when you ask Nipperkin about Morgan LeFlay, he will tell you that none of the stories he heard add up, each pirate describing a different man, leading him to believe that someone's trying to hide something. Cue the reveal that Morgan LeFlay is actually a woman, and suddenly all the different stories make sense : none of the pirates would admit to have been beaten and captured by a woman, so each one made up a different description of the dreaded pirate hunter!
    • Guybrush's relatively unconcerned reaction to having his hand lopped off by Morgan's sword makes sense if you notice that it's not flailing around uncontrollably, meaning he was able to anesthetize it with grog like he said he would.
  • Fridge Horror:
    • The first time you knock on De Singe's door, you can hear a man screaming, "OHHH HO HO HO! MY NOSE!" There is a nose-shaped pot next to the door.
      • Actually, when you try to knock on the door for the first time, the flowerpot falls off and Guybrush has to pick it up. This may or may not have been Fridge Horror.
    • In the Chapter 2 intro, the Voodoo Lady is seen reading Guybrush's future and predicting his death. In Chapter 3, you use these tarot cards to curse De Singe. She wasn't reading Guybrush's future - she was cursing him!
    • She also sends him to find La Esponja Grande, which gave LeChuck the power and caused Guybrush's death.
  • Fridge Logic: Guybrush thinks he canít exit the bar as a ghost because he canít turn the knob. Why not just walk through it? Perhaps a character-appropriate excuse for an Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence.
    • More importantly (sort of), Guybrush gets his hand back as a ghost, yet he meets three other ghosts whose critical wounds are still visible.
