Trivia: Tales of Monkey Island
  • Name's the Same: In case you didn't know, the name of Moose the bar pirate of Chapter 3 is kinda different in that he shares the same name as Moose the Frankenstein's Monster Jerk Jock in Brain Dead 13.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • LeChuck. In episode 4, LeChuck's original voice actor Earl Boen returns as Demon LeChuck, while his new voice actor, Kevin Blackton, plays LeChuck in human form. It's a full-circle effect, sort of like what happened with Elaine: Demon LeChuck in episode 1 was originally played by actor Adam Harrington (who was replaced in later episodes), but Telltale rerecorded LeChuck's episode 1 dialogue with Boen for the DVD release.
    • Also, the voices for the Spoon Isle Trio (Pirates Bill, Ted, and Kevin) in Chapter 2 seem to have been rearranged in Chapter 5 somehow. For example, Pirate Bill (Swordfighter) seems a bit tough and rough-voiced in Chapter 2, while in Chapter 5 he sounds like a moderately low-pitched guy with pirate-speak. Also, Pirate Ted (Treasure Hunter) sounds like a bit of a Trenchfoot sound-alike in Chapter 2, but he now sounds like an Irish-accented dude in Chapter 5; and Pirate Kevin's (Thief) like a very tough dude with a British accent in Chapter 2, while in Chapter 5 he speaks like a redneck in a low-voiced Southern drawl. Different voice actors, perhaps?
    • And Joaquin D'Oro is voiced by David Boyll in Chapter 1, but in Chapter 4, he has a different voice actor: Andrew Chaikin (a.k.a. Kid Beyond).
  • The Other Marty: LeChuck. Adam Harrington played his undead form in episode 1 of Tales, then Earl Boen (who had already been brought back for episodes 4 and 5) re-recorded over Harrington's lines in the DVD release of the game.
  • Sequel Gap: Released 9 years after the previous installment and the first one not produced by LucasArts.
  • Talking to Himself: There are a few actors who have voiced so many characters throughout the game.
    • Straight examples by those actually talking to themselves:
      • Dominic Armato does both Guybrush (all five chapters) and the Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma (Chapters 1, 2, 4 and 5)
      • Kid Beyond (Andrew Chaikin) does Coronado De Cava (Chapter 3) and Bugeye (Chapters 3 and 5; as well as Joaquin D'Oro (Chapter 4), Murkel Trenchfoot (Chapters 2 and 4), McGillicutty (Chapter 2) and two of his crew members of the Spoon Isle Trio)
      • Brian Sommer does Killick Hardtack (Chapters 2 and 4) and Judge Grindstump (Chapters 4 and 5; as well as Marshall (Chapter 1), Rockrib (Chapters 1, 4 and 5), one unnamed Club 41 member (Chapter 1), and two members of McGillicutty's crew).
    • Aversions by the only actors who voiced different characters who never talk to each other are:
      • Adam Harrington, who does LeChuck (PC download version of Chapter 1) and Moose (Chapter 3)
      • Tim Talbot, who does Davey Nipperkin (Chapter 1) and Gaffer Crimpdigit (Chapters 1 and 4)
      • Roger Jackson, who does Winslow (Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 5), the Club 41 bartender prior to Grindstump (Chapter 1), Hemlock McGee (Chapters 1 and 4), and Galeb (Chapter 5)
      • Alison Ewing, who does Bosun Krebbs (Chapters 1 and 4) and the Voodoo Lady (all five chapters)
      • Jared Emerson-Johnson, who does the Marquis De Singe (Chapters 1-4) and one member of McGillicutty's Spoon Isle Trio.
  • What Could Have Been:
