General important stuff
First of all, this game is really great and shouldn't be solved only with this
walkthrough. There are a lot of other things to do
and explore. The walkthrough just shows the minimal things you have to do in
order to finish the game and this could ruin a
lot of the fun. When you get to a new place explore everything you can, you'll
need it to know the names of the places so you
know where to go to with the walkthrough. When it's written to talk to someone,
really talk to the character and get as much
information as you possibly can. This is also very important because sometimes
certain things the characters say, trigger
Guybrush to do certain things later and not to mention the valuable information
you get out from them. Where it's written
"Mega-Monkey" it's meant for the Mega-Monkey mode in the game. If you're playing
the easy mode, ignore it.
Part 1: The Demise of the Zombie Pirate LeChuck
You start your adventure as a prisoner in LeChuck's ship. Talk to the small
pirate and find out that it's Wally. Talk to him
some more and he gives you some pirate literature, Keep talking to him until
starts crying and drops his plastic hook. Get the
plastic hook and the ramrod off the wall. Use the cannon and shoot down the
skeleton's boats. After you shot down all the
boats, open your inventory and combine the plastic hook with the ramrod to get a
gaff. Look out the window. Use the gaff on
the debris to get the skeleton arm and cutlass. You can also talk to Murray the
skull and use the gaff on him if you want. Go
back into the room, use the cutlass on the cannon restraint rope, and use the
cannon. In the treasure room get the bag and the
ring. Use the ring on the porthole and out you go.
Part 2: The Curse Gets Worse
Get the glowing ember that's on the ground. Travel to the swamp, talk to Murray
the skull and get into the wrecked ship. Get
the pin from the paper voodoo doll and use the nickels on the gumball machine to
get a pack of gum.
Mega-Monkey: Also get the paste from the floor.
Pull the alligator tongue and talk to the voodoo lady until you she has nothing
new to say. You find out that Elaine got stolen
and that in order to lift the curse you'll have to sail to Blood Island, and get
a huge uncursed diamond ring. She also tells you
that you'll need a Map, a crew and a ship in order to get there.
Travel to Puerto Pollo and go to the theater backstage door, get the dandruff
from the pirate coat and find out that it's actually
lice, also get the glove from the coat.
Mega-Monkey: To get the dandruff, look at the pirate coat first. To get the
glove you have to open the pocket in the pirate
Get the magic wand from the table, and use it on the magic hat, get the book
from the hat and look at the book to learn it's a
ventriloquism book. Look at the worn travel trunk and look at the Blood Island
sticker on it. Go right to the stage and talk to
Slappy Cromwell especially about Blood Island.
Go out of the theater and go to the barber shop, talk to everyone about
everything you can. Get the jawbreaker from the floor.
Mega-Monkey: to get the jawbreaker from Cutthroat Bill hit him twice (hand icon
on bill) and he'll spit out the jawbreaker.
Put the lice on the comb that the barber is using when he puts it down, this
will take care of Captain Rottingham and make
place for you. Sit on the barber chair and talk to Haggis while he does your
hair. Use the handle once and get the paperweight
that's on the hairstyling book, this will make Haggis go away so use the handle
of the chair until you're high enough to get the
scissors, and take it.
Travel to the mysterious flowers (it's near the lemonade stand, and the
restaurant in Puerto Pollo). Cut the flower with the
scissors and Guybrush will learn it's used as a purgative. Now use the scissors
with the undergrowth and Guybrush will find
himself in Snake Crossing. Guybrush will get eaten by a huge snake now, it
doesn't matter what you do. Get all the stuff from
inside the snake until there's nothing more to take. Use the ipecac flower on
the pancake syrup in your inventory to get syrup
of ipecac. Use the ipecac syrup on the snake's head and he'll barf you out.
Great... now you're stuck in quicksand. Open up your inventory, and use the
paperweight with the helium balloons, now blow
the floating balloon (use parrot icon on it) and it should stop right above the
branch (eventually...), get a thorn from the thorny
plant that's right infront of you and get a hollow reed from the reeds behind
you. Combine the thorn and the hollow reed in
your inventory and you've just made a world class pee-shooter. Use the
pea-shooter on the floating balloon, and you're out of
the quicksand. Guybrush will now find a new place, but we will get to it later.
Travel to Puerto Pollo and enter the restaurant, now you can enter with the
reservation slip you got from the snake. Touch the
quiet patron and get the serrated bread knife from his back, also get the club
card from between the chicken bones.
Mega-Monkey: to get the club card, get a biscuit from the biscuit barrel, open
your inventory and eat the biscuit (parrot icon
on biscuit), you get maggots. Use the maggots on the gross chicken, and you got
the club card. Also get the pie pan and the
Talk to Captain Blondebeard and learn that he wants something crunchy to chew on
so give him the jawbreaker, that will
loosen his tooth a bit, now he wants something chewy, so give him the gum. When
he blows a bubble, pop it with the pin you
got and the gold tooth will fly out of it. Take the gold tooth from the floor.
Mega-Monkey: You can't leave the restaurant with the gold tooth so do this...
chew some gum (parrot icon), use the gold
tooth on the chewed gum, inhale some helium from the helium balloon (parrot icon
again) and chew the gum with the gold
tooth. The gum will just fly out of the window so exit the restaurant and use
the pie pan with the mudpuddle and you got the
Get out of the restaurant and go through the pathway near the mysterious door,
that's near the theater (you'll should see a red
arrow pointing up). You'll find yourself in the caber toss place, walk over to
the grassy knoll and use the serrated bread knife
on the sawhorse (the rum keg stand thingie...), this will make the rum keg fall
and leave a trail of rum, use the ember on a
stick on the trail of rum and KABOOM. Suprisingly the blasted log will fall
right on the log pile.
Go to the barber shop, and talk to Haggis. Accept his offer for a caber toss
match and of course you'll win it now with the
rubber tree log. You got one crew member, two more to go. Go to Edward Van
Helgen in barber shop, and use the glove on
him. He'll take you to the caber tossing area for a duel. When he lets you
choose your weapon close the lid of the middle
pistol's box and choose the banjo. Ok, now you're banjo dueling with Edward. The
concept of the duel is very simple,
Edward plays a his thing and then a special note, he does that a few times, on
your turn you have to repeat the notes that
Edward played in the same order. If you get it right, Edward will go crazy with
his banjo, so go to the pistols, pick one and
shoot his banjo. Now Edward is in your crew and you need only one more crew
member, so go to Cutthroat Bill in the barber
shop, and show him the gold tooth you got.
That's it, you now have a crew, all you need now is a map and a ship. Travel to
the cabana and talk to the cabana boy, show
him your club card. Before you go in, take three towels and dunk them in the ice
bucket. Go to the beach and try to walk on
it, Guybrush will burn up so use the wet towels on the hot sand three times
quickly before they burn out. Talk to the
sunbather, and learn that it's Palido Domingo, Slappy Cromwell's travel agent,
and that he's got the map to Blood Island
tattooed on his back. Get his mug and leave through the gate. Travel to Puerto
Pollo and go to the lemonade stand. Talk to the
small pirate and learn about his bottomless mug policy. Order some lemonade and
Guybrush will now understand the
meaning of the bottomless mug policy. Use the mug in your inventory on the
bottomless mug and order some lemonade again.
Get the pitcher and fill it up with dye from the dye vat near the lemonade
stand. Travel to the cabana and get a towel, dunk it
in the ice bucket again and use the wet towel on the cabana boy so he'll go
away. Take the cooking oil and go to the beach
again (you don't have to do the towel thing again). Give the bottomless mug to
Palido and pour the dye into the bottomless
mug. Palido will turn over, now use the cooking oil on the map, and then get the
Now all you need is to find Elaine and get a ship. Travel to Danjer Cove use the
Mega-Monkey: You need to fix the hole in the boat first, so go to the caber toss
area in Puerto Pollo and use the biscuit
cutter on the second rubber tree. Go back to Danjer Cove, use the paste with the
new rubber plug and use the sticky rubber
plug with the hole in the boat.
Travel to the pirate ship and board it. The pirates will make you walk the plank
so cut it when you're on the rowboat again
with the serrated bread knife. Climb the ship again, do something, and this
time you'll be tarred and feathered. So now your
back on shore and you look like a big chicken. Travel to the restaurant and
Captain Blondebeard will eventually hit you in the
head and you'll be taken to the monkey ship. When you're in the chicken bucket
look at the book in your inventory if you hadn't
done so by now, and learn that it's a ventriloquism book. Use the ventriloquism
book on LeChimp. Get the treasure map and
get out of the ship by opening the porthole behind the chicken bucket.
Travel to Puerto Pollo and look at the treasure map. Go to the theater backstage
and walk up the stairs, pull the handle in the
control panel and you'll find the X.
Mega-Monkey: At the control panel you'll have to follow the instructions in the
treasure map to find the X, for example
when it says NorthWest you have to push the NorthWest button. Follow all the
instructions and you should find the X on the
grave on the stage eventually.
Use the chicken grease on the cannon balls that are on the old trunk to get
Slappy off the stage. Walk right to the stage and use
the shovel to dig up Elaine.
Part 3: Three Sheets to the Wind
Sing along with the crew members until they get tired of it. When Haggis asks
you what kind of a captain you are he's actually
letting you decide on the difficulty level for the sea battles in this part. If
you really want to work and have fun tell him you
want full control, if you ask for their help the sea battle will be MUCH easier.
Don't worry, if you change your mind later you
can always talk to Haggis again and ask him for help, or regain full control of
The goal of this part is to beat Captain Rottingham in sea battle and sword
fight, to get back the map to Blood Island. In order
to do that you'll have to fight other pirates and upgrade your weapons until
your good enough to fight him. Use your
navigation chart and meet other ships to fight with.
In the beginning go for the really easy ships, if you beat them in sea battle,
you'll board the ship and start sword fighting. The
sword fighting has the same concept as in Monkey Island 1 only here the insults
have to rhyme. In almost every fight you gain
some new insults and the witty answer to the insult. You have to remember the
answers to the insults and this is how you'll
win those fight. Also, sometimes if you don't have a treasure on your ship, you
might want to lose an insult on purpose, just to
get a new insult from the other guy.
Every ship you defeat in the sword fight, you take their treasure. Then you have
to go back to Puerto Pollo and upgrade your
weapons. The more fearsome the pirates are, the more treasure they have and the
better fire power you need to defeat them.
After you defeat a ship in sea battle, you don't have to defeat them again, you
can just board the ship and sword fight them.
You can also fight the same ship a few times after you got their treasure, just
for practice, this is very recommended.
You gain levels and fight stronger pirates, until you fight Captain Rottingham
himself. The Captain doesn't use the same
insults as the common pirates use, so you have to think what simple insult
answer is appropriate and make sure it rhymes.
Part 4: The Bartender, the Thieves, his Aunt, and her Lover
Talk to Haggis about everything, especially the lotion. Get the bottle from the
shore and bite the cork to open it (use the
parrot icon on the bottle). Travel to the cemetery, walk down and get the mallet
