Escape from Monkey Island Spoilers

Welcome to the new Computer Game Spoilers section of my gaming website. I added this section because I recently received questions about the plots of two different games which, to my surprise and embarrassment, I had totally forgotten the answers to. Then, to my further surprise, I was unable to find any existing website that would refresh my memory about the plots of computer games... lots of puzzle solutions, but no basic plot summaries.

So I figured I'd better write some of them down while they're still fresh in my mind, just in case I or anybody else wants to refer to them at some point in the future (or in case anybody suffers a major game glitch and just wants to know what was supposed to happen in the end-- I get letters like this from time to time.) If you haven't finished Escape from Monkey Island yet and you don't want the plot of this game to be revealed to you, then you don't want to read this page. Please go back to my main Escape from Monkey Island page, where I give tips and reviews without giving away any of its plot.

But if you are looking for plot spoilers, just scroll further down the page to find them!

Plot Summary

Ozzie Mandrill, an annoying Australian business tycoon, is taking over the islands where Guybrush lives and turning them into pirate-themed tourist traps-- but there's nothing Guybrush can do about it, because he doesn't understand Ozzie's dialect of English well enough to win an insult fight with him. Now he must try to prevent Ozzie from assembling a weapon called the Ultimate Insult. Meanwhile, Guybrush's undead nemesis LeChuck returns in this game using the alias "Charles L. Charles" and runs against Elaine for the governorship of Melee Island, which he actually wins. But then of course he returns to his usual megalomaniacal form and plots with Ozzie to use the Ultimate Insult to subjugate the entire Caribbean Archipelago. Meanwhile Guybrush, stranded on Monkey Island, has to play a takeoff on Mortal Kombat repeatedly with a bunch of monkeys. Finally, he has to best LeChuck himself in Giant Monkey Kombat.

Character Subplots and Secrets

There were a couple of plot twists for the characters in this one:

Herman Toothrot: This was a minor character in the first two Monkey Island games, a dim-witted hermit. In this game he regains his memory and is revealed to be Elaine's grandfather, Horatio Marley. At the end of the game, he resumes governorship of the island while Elaine and Guybrush return to their carefree piratical ways.

LeChuck and Ozzie: These two villains are working together for most of the game. Ozzie freed LeChuck from his last prison, and now they are in league to find and use the Ultimate Insult (Ozzie because he wants to break the spirit of the pirates and create an orderly tourist haven, and LeChuck because he wants to control Elaine so that she will agree to marry him.) However, once they find it, their alliance goes less smoothly-- LeChuck strikes off on his own, Ozzie decides to use the Ultimate Insult to control LeChuck, and then after Guybrush annoys them long enough by drawing repeated ties in Monkey Kombat, LeChuck manages to break free somehow and kills Ozzie.
