#1 When you first enter The Bloody Lip bar Largo robes the bartender of all his money, but when you get a job he pays you in advance. How can he do that when Largo has just stolen all his money?
Added: Friday, August 4, 2000

#2 When you are in Elaine's mansion Guybrush does not want to steal her clothes chest because of the time he stole her idol. This does not make sense since he has just stolen her part of the map and her oar.
Added: Friday, August 4, 2000

Added: Friday, August 4, 2000

#6 When you apply for a library card, you gave give Captain Dread as your name, but if you try to borrow the book "Big Whoop, bonanza or myth?" (The book the Voodoo Lady borrows in your name) the librarian claims you already have it. How does she know that when you said your name was Captain Dread?

#7 When you polish the peg leg on one of the Low Moral Fiber Pirates, he gives you a piece o' eight, but after 19 times he'll say that he doesn't have any more money.
However, when you have gotten Elaine's piece of the map, he will again give you money.
How can he have gotten more money, when he officiously has not moved an inch?

#8 When you give the bone to the Voodoo Lady, Guybrush tells her it is from Largo's grandfather, but if he didn't look at the grave, he can't know that.
Added: Monday, January 7, 2002

#9 You are supposed to know the Voodoo Lady from "The Secret of Monkey Island", but in the first game you can choose not to visit her at all and therefore never meeting her.
Added: Monday, January 7, 2002

#10 After you cut off the peg leg of one of the Men of Low Moral Fiber (Pirate) and leave you can see his whole peg leg if you go back right away.
And the wood smith is out on house visit, probably repairing that pirate's peg leg, but you never see him. And when you go into his workshop, he's not there but you can't see him anywhere and once you've got the hammer and you leave the island he's back.

#11 When you're in the shop on Booty Island and have bought one of the hub caps, the antique dealer says that he cannot sell you another hubcap because he needs to have at least one in the shop for display model, but you can clearly see that there are two hubcaps in the shop next to the cannonballs.

#12 When you try to pick up the box in the laundry on Scabb Island, Guybrush says, that it won't fit in his pocket. However he has no problem carrying things like the dog, Jojo or the Sea Monkey Head.
Added: Tuesday, September 14, 2004

#13 On Scabb Island, after getting the string and the stick, you can try tying one to the other in the inventory, but Guybrush says he's to clumsy to do that, but, on Dinky Island, he has no problems tying a rope to a crowbar.
Added: Thursday, October 20, 2005

#14 When you're fightiing Lechuck in MI2 you use your dad's skull in the voodoo doll but you only find out that LeChuck's your brother after you use it on him.
Added: Sunday, February 26, 2006

#15 When Guybrush gives the four pieces of the map to Wally, Wally asks Guybrush to go to the voodoo lady and get his potion. But when Guybrush goes to voodoo lady, he asks her for a LOVE potion. How can Guybrush know that the potion was a LOVE potion, if Wally never said that?
Added: Thursday, March 16, 2006

#16 In 'The Secret of Monkey Island' on LeChuck's ghost ship, you have to put the rat to sleep. Guybrush can't get by him because he says "I hate rats", but in 'LeChuck's Revenge' you can capture a rat and carry it with you.
Added: Thursday, November 30, 2006

#17 In the "easy" mode, you can get a library card and purchase grog, though there is no spitting contest to win. If you still have the grog in LeChuck's torture chamber, you can use it to spit out the candle as in the "hard" mode - but when the candle goes out, Guybrush asks Wally if he can open his eyes again, though he never asked Wally if he had any plan to escape...

Programming errors

#1 If you try to pull the rope when you are in the tunnels at the end, the game will crash and the message "Code for Object 1074 not in Room 85" will appear.
Added: Friday, February 9, 2001

#2 When Guybrush picks up the bucket, one of the men of low-moral fiber tells you to leave it, but when he is talking to you, his shoulders are moving like when he was still sleeping.
Added: Saturday, March 31, 2001

#3 There is a sound error in the Mac version of Monkey Island 2. The music that plays during the spitting contest gets stuck in the background and plays throughout the rest of the game.
Added: Friday, August 3, 2001

#4 When you start up the disk version of "LeChuck's Revenge" you have to tell the game what soundcard you have. For instance if you have a SoundBlaster you start the game by typing "monkey2 s". If you instead type "monkey2 1" you get a message saying "Debugging mode not active".
Added: Monday, January 7, 2002

#5 This error was found in the CD version of MI2: If you pull the string on the bag on Dinky Island, a small crate will appear on the screen, but it doesn't register as an active item you can use and it disappears if you leave the screen and then return.
Added: Saturday, May 1, 2004

#6 If you load a game where Guybrush is standing over the big
hole that leads to big whoop and then load a game where
Guybrush is standing over the big x, you can put your cursor over the big x but the command bar will say "Walk to big hole".
Added: Saturday, May 1, 2004

#7 On Phatt Island, while you are at the cottage and Rum Rogers is going to bring drinks if you would look at Captain Dread's map the game will crash.
Added: Saturday, September 25, 2004

#8 When you take part in the drinking contest against Rum and you pick up your mug of grog from the table, if you move the cursor over the left hand side of the table it says there's another mug of grog there, even though you cannot see it.

Graphical errors

#1 In Guybrush's dream LeChuck wears a blue coat, but in the rest of the game he wears a red one.
Many people think this is not an error because Guybrush hasn't met LeChuck yet and would therefore remember him as he looked in MI1, where he was wearing a blue coat. However, LeChuck appears in his MI2 form (the rotten body) and not his ghost form from MI1. In other words, since his body is the one from MI2, his coat should also be :)
Added: Friday, August 4, 2000

#2 When Guybrush digs in the cemetery he's pants fall down and we can see that he wears short white underwear, but when he gets hit by the gardener's rake he wears long underwear with red hearts.
Added: Friday, August 4, 2000

#3 At the begin of part 4 at the beach you can use the glass with the ocean without picking it up beforehand. Instead of picking it up and then use it with the ocean, Guybrush just goes to the ocean and the glass is magically filled with water. But when you try using it with the still after
that, Guybrush automatically picks up the glass in order to use it.

#4 The voodoo lady has blue eyes in MI, but green eyes in MI2.
Added: Saturday, May 1, 2004

#5 When Guybrush is pursued by LeChuck in the concrete tunnels, he can find in cardboard boxes a doll. In the inventory, it looks like LeChuck with several colorful ornamens making it look lifelike. Guybrush then uses it as a voodoo doll to torture LeChuck after mixing it with special ingredients, but when he takes out the doll on the screen, it looks like an all brown dull doll without any features.

Incorrectly regarded as errors

#1 If you chose the circus tickets as your prize, when playing the wheel, the guy says "the Linguini Brothers", but when Guybrush looks at the tickets, he says "the Fettuccini Brothers". (Only appears in the disk version).
The guy just can't pronounce the name correctly.
