Guybrush gives book to fisherman

There is a book in the Phatt Island library called the Big Book of Fish that you can give to the fisherman. He will gladly accept it so he can identify unknown fish.

If you read the wanted posters on Phatt Island wharf the crimes committed by Guybrush will be listed there. The list will get bigger as the game progresses based on Guybrush actions.

Bottle o' near-grog

When Guybrush puts Kate Capsize in prison he will get her near-grog bottle. If Guybrush drinks it he will only drink part of it and you will be able to see how much is left by hovering the mouser over the item.

The forbidden shapes

If you try to point a place in Captain Dread's map that is not allowed he will say you can't go there because of a random forbidden shape.

Guybrush needs to resurface after 10 minutes

You are able to blow the Booty Boutique horn almost everywhere in the game getting different reactions from Guybrush or other characters.

Guybrush dies in the acid pit

If you wait 5 minutes while hanging in LeChuck's torture chamber, Guybrush will be lowered to the acid pit. However, he doesn't die as the game will fade back to the hanging screen where Guybrush is telling the story to Elaine. After some explanation from Guybrush the game goes back to the acid pit.

Different ways to break the bottle

When Guybrush is on Dinky Island you can break the bottle he picks up from the shores in several different ways.

During the final part of the game in the underground tunnels Guybrush can pick up a root beer bottle and use it with LeChuck. However it doesn't work as root beer only works on ghosts and not on zombies.
