Big Whoop by night
#1 When you are at Big Whoop pick up the sign saying "Guess your weight". The screen will go completely black, except for a few things that will glow.
WARNING: There is no way to get the screen back to normal, you have to reload a saved game.
Added: Unknown
 
Cheat code
#1 When you are shooting the skeletons type "lapostal". The game will display the message "Unlimited cannon balls mode ON". If you type "lapostal" again the game will write "Unlimited cannon balls mode STILL ON".

The code "lapostal" is originally a cheat code from LucasArts' 3D-shooter "Dark Forces". If you use it there you will get unlimited ammo.

#2 Like in MI1 and MI2 you can cheat to win in MI3, but the cheat code is a little different. Anywhere in the game you can press SHIFT+W and the game will ask if you want to win. Press Y and the credits will appear.

#3 When you are in the cannon battles, you can press Shift+V to win.

Dig spider

LC + EM
#1 When LeChuck is holding up his voodoo cannon ball you can see these letters: LC + EM which, of course, stands for LeChuck and Elaine Marley.
Added: Wednesday, July 21, 1999
 
LeChuck doll
#1 You can get a LeChuck doll from the smugglers on Skull Island. If you use it, it will walk around and say different pirate-sentences.
If you give it to LeChuck at the end, he will set fire to it.
Added: Unknown
 
Lemonhead
#1 When you are talking to Lemonhead he will say something about paradigms. Hold your mouse cursor over the words "a pair of dimes?" (without clicking) and different things will pop up on the screen saying that if you click it, Guybrush will die.
Added: Wednesday, August 4, 1999
 
Lightsaber insults
#1 During ship-to-ship combat press Shift+J to turn lightsaber sounds on. Shift+J again, and it'll be off. In the following sword fights you'll hear lightsaber sounds instead of the usual sword clangs.
Added: Sunday, February 2, 2003
 
Palido
#1 When you ask Palido how long he's been lying on the beach, he will say things according to your Windows clock.
If you clock is set for January, he will wish you a happy new year.
Added: Wednesday, August 4, 1999
 
Papapishu!
#1 When Guybrush is in the quicksand you can look at the sign and Guybrush will say "Ah Papapishu!" because he learn that the thorny plant is called "Papapishu" after the native word for "Ouch".

From now on whenever someone was supposed to say "Youch!" They will say "Ah Papapishu!" instead.
Added: Wednesday, January 6, 1999
 
Push LaFoot of the cliff
#1 When you go to Skull Island you are to be lowered down by LaFoot. If you don't take out the umbrella Guybrush will smash on the cliffs. Do this three times and then take out the umbrella the fourth. Go in the cave, win the poker game, get the diamond, and leave.
Just before you leave the island Guybrush will say that there is something he has to do. He goes up to LaFoot and pushes him off the cliff. NOTE: you have to do it right the first time if you forgot the money or something it may not work.
Added: Sunday, April 7, 2002
 
The clock on Plunder Island
#1 The clock on Plunder Island actually works. Every half/whole hour it plays LeChuck's theme, and if you have Guybrush examine it he will tell you what the time is.
Added: Unknown
 
The drowned Guybrush from MI1
#1 Like with the stump, there is a way to return to MI1. "Use" the water, on the Blood Island beach, about 25 - 30 times. Guybrush will walk down in the water and see himself when he drowned on Melee Island in MI1.

You can go back into the water without having to 'use' the water. It's a bit of a pixel search but you have to move the cursor around the water until an arrow appears, then you can go back down and actually explore the area where the MI1 Guybrush is.
Added: Unknown
 
The stump
#1 In MI3 the stump appears again. In the Goodsoup family crypt there's a crack in the wall. Look through it and you will be back in the old forest from MI1. In MI1 Guybrush looks through the stump, but can't squeeze through.
Added: Unknown
 
Wally hanging
#1 When you fight LeChuck at the Roller-coaster of Death, in LeChuck's dungeon diorama, if you look at Wally Guybrush will discover that it really is Wally and if you leave him and come back after that Wally cries because of Guybrush doesn't set him free. If you leave him without Guybrush having looked at him, he'll not react at all.
Added: Friday, August 9, 2002
 
Waterfall
#1 If you step under the waterfall in Danjer Cove after the monkeys tar and feather you, the tar and feathers will be washed off.
