After recently playing Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, I got to see the ending once again. I must say, for EMI to have a better ending then MI2, it will have to be very, very impressive http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

What do you think?

Personaly, I liked SMI's ending best, but most people disagree with me.

I thought SMI's ending was the best because it was funny. Guybrush went through the whole quest to find what he needed to beat LeChuck when he had the solution right under his nose.

I never really understood why Guybrush was LE Chuck's brother, it was a bit odd to me. However I was only 8 when I played it and I'm 15 now, so I can't remember. Can someone remind me?

I think in MI2, LeChuck was really just messing with Guybrush's mind. I doubt he's really his brother.

I havent played part 3 yet, but the end has Guybrush in an amusement park, and "Chucky's" eyes crackling with energy. Which implies there's more to this than meets the eye than a simple family outing.

And the CMI demo starts out with Guybrush adrift at sea in a bumper car.

At any rate, MI2's ending is definately far from permanent

See at the end of MI2, Guybrush met Lechuck, pretending to be Chucky and lured Guybrush into the Carnival of the Damned, which is on Monkey island. When Chucky's eyes sparkle, you infer that it is really Lechuck. At the beginning of CMI, you see Guybrush in a bumper car, (his escape from the carnival)

By my Gangrenous gut, how did you escape my Carnival of the Damned??

Many people will disagree with me but I believe that CMI had a very interesting and good ending. This ending was good because it had the build-up of all the other cinematic clips. It was rather short but I enjoyed it very much. Compared to MI2 The ending was about the same length but MI1 still has the longest ending, I think.
LONG LIVE MI1!!!!!

MI1 is still my favourite ending of any game I've ever played. It was just the perfect reward after adventuring through Ron Gilbert's wonderful fantasy world. It made me feel happy and even a little bit sad that it was done (at that point I never dreamed it would get a sequel never mind three!).
MI2's ending was a little dissapointing after the first play. I was expecting another happy, carefree ending and was instead presented with an ending that was much darker and reminded me very much of The Empire Strikes Back (I cried when Darth told Luke he was his father!).
MI3's ending was a big dissapointment to me. The game had been really good up till then and then it just fell flat on it's face with a 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' finale.
Here's hoping that Escape from Monkey Island is as good as we hope.....and that it's ending makes us feel all warm and gooey inside!!!

Okay. Here's the answer to end all answers, IMHO. I agree when i first finished mi2 (i was 10, i believe), i did think the first two games had been the dreams of a little boy. Then, along came CMI. In CMI, it is revealed that Guybrush was trapped in the cranival of the damned and it was all a trick. Here is why i believe that and how it makes sense.

When Guybrush blasted the hole in the giant X in mi2, he ended up falling through that black pit, eventually ending up in the tunnel. I think somewhere in that blackness, was the entrance to the carnival of the damned. Think about it.

1) How else could Guybrush have fallen through a hole in Dinky Island, and landed in a tunnel on monkey island.

2) If the tunnel was really on dinky island, disregaring the fact the carnival outside was on monkey island, how else would you explain how the elevator takes you up to melee island?

I think that Guybrush landed in the maintenance tunnel of the CArninval of the Damned (hereforward known as COTD). Lechuck played into guybrush's dream/nightmare by pretending he was Guybursh's borhter Chucky, and making guybrush think he was on a vacation with his family. When the four start leaving the screen, you see Chucky/LeChuck's eyes start flashing sparks, showing that there's more to this than meets the eye. And, at the beginning of CMI, Guybrush writes in his log that he escaped LeChuck's COTD, and he is floating in bumper car.

Now, to confuse you even more: That's what really happened, but officially, Ron Gilbert's idea was completely different. There was no carnival. Confused yet? good.

Now, how was Guybrush transported to the COTD from the hole in Dinky Island, you ask? Good question. My theory is:

The tresure chest Guybrsuh was holding right before he fell into the darkness CONTAINED the carnival of the damned! When Guybrush hit the bottom of the pit (which, I'll bet was just a regular dirt hole), that broke the chest, unleashing the curse of Big Whoop, and trapping Guybrush in the Carnival of the Damned.

That's my theory. Any questions? :)

According to LeChuck, Dinky Island was an atoll off the coast of Monkey Island. When Guybrush blew the X, he was on Dinky. The maintence tunnell appearently ran under water. So the whole thing was real and not a dream. The Carnival of the Damned was on Monkey Island.

With regards to the two previous posts:
Yes I would agree that the tunnel under Dinky led to Monkey Island, as Dinky was supposedly positioned just off the coast of Monkey, but how the hell did the elevator go up to Melee Island alley?!
This has always confused me, someone PLEASE offer an explanation before they bang me up in a padded room with a hug yourself jacket!!!

I think that LeChuck built the whole Carneval of Dammed (if you talked 'bout it to LeChuck at the start of episode "the kiss of spider monkey, he say it) And remember those lava tunnels from MI1) I think that was the tunnel to Dinky, until LeChuck built a shorter concrete tunnel from carneval of Dammed to the secret place of hidden Big Whoop. Elevator thing was a voodoo spell (better ideas?) or it was a pretty fast elevator to really Mle Island(have you seen the map of MI islands? Mle is pretty far away from Monkey). He built the tunnel 'cause he know that Guybrush will find the Big Whoop and fall to his hand.

Spoiler

You, know. In MI2, LeChuck wanted Guybrush away. First he tried to built a voodoo doll, but the spell wasn't ready in few days and LeChuck wasn't patient so he try get a better Idea. Then his only hope was Largo LaGrande. Largo kidnap Wally and Guybrush walk to LeChuck. And all this time he (LeChuck) have a idea, how to get an army of the undead: the Carneval of Dammed. His agent were building it. But Guybrush escaped from LeChuck. Now LeChucks only hope was Carneval of Dammed. He went there, somehow finnished the voodoo doll and the spell and waited for Guybrush. And then he come. LeChucks doll was broken, but he had a spell what was for this moment. He comfused Guybrushs mind and now Guybrush think that he they was brothers. Now a guy(LeChucks skeleton) came take them to thecarneval of dammd(On Monkey Island).

I know that Big Whoop is a port to another dimension, but can somebody tell me what is the ticket in the chest? Is it important? And I think that Big Whoop was the Secret of Monkey Island.

Remember how in LCR, nobody ever seems to get the name "Dinky Island" right? They always call it "Inky Island" or "Blinky Island". Maybe there is NO "Dinky Island", and it's been "Monkey Island" all the way.

09-21-2000, 08:35 PM
i dunno, the whole ending to mi2 was ripped off from the SW trilogy. the whole emeny-being-family conecpt, and even when lechuck used his voodoo doll, the lightning type shockwaves that flashed all over guybrush were exactly like the ones the Emporer incurred onto Luke. At least the CMI ending was original.

I have to say I LOVED MI2 but the ending wasn't to my liking and on a personal note: I missed the swordfighting. The ending I thought was over done. I guess it could have been okay if he was his brother. As long as he didn't have a mask. I liked the whole rotting corpse thing. And I wish they had gotton an explanation for the hex and carnival (I thought guybrush was going to be like that forever) But in the third everything was fine. But you guys should listen to LeChuck at the ending of CMI. It is vital. !) he tells you about big whoop! 2) he tells the story of captain marley and his crew. Also: on the roller coaster you can speak to wally and hermin toothrot. They explain alot too.

Guybrush112
10-15-2000, 12:04 PM
LeChuck13, you have an EXCELLENT theory. It totally makes sense. That the treasure chest contains the spell of big whoop. I loved it (it made me screech!?) But LeChuck at the end of CMI said that the treasure of big whoop is the very gates of hell. He aalso said Capt. Marley and his crew saw the curse of Big Whoop and managed to trap it in a chest. But LeChuck p***ed through big whoop and became his demon self. Opon meeting being beeten by guybrush he knew that the only way to get revenge was have him p*** through big whoop. He then built a tunnel under dinkey leeding to monkey. When upon smashing the chest it released big whoop and the haulucination of LeChuck. Then he attempted to p*** guybrush through the gates of hell by fooling him to believe he is just a boy to get him to go on the roller coaster. I think after LeChuck found out that guybrush had escaped he needed to lure guybrush into hell. I also think that maybe guybrush has to conceal big whoop once again in achest and make sure it is never found. That way the curse of hell won't be brought upon the Carribean forever!!!! Bwahahahahaha! I'm tired: good night.

I'm guessing many of you have not layed Monkey Island 3, otherwise there wouldn't be all this conjecture. At the beginning of part 5, LeChuck's speech answers many of these questions. Anyway, here is the official story:

1) LeChuck is not Guybrush's brother. It's possible that Gilbert intended for them to really be related but Ackley and Ahern disliked this and decided to treat it as a one-off Star Wars parody.

2) Big Whoop is not the secret of Monkey Island. It seems likely that this secret will never be revealed and will only ever be a running gag.

3) While Gilbert envisioned Dinky as a seperate island, it suited the purposes of Ackley and Ahern to pretend that it was really sort of Monkey Island all along.

4) The elevator that goes to Melee is a throwaway gag and has no special relevance.

5) The ending of MI2 is an illusion. LeChuck had trapped Guybrush inside a fantasy amusement park where he was to be tortured forever until his dodgem car accidentally broke through the safety barrier and sailed out to sea. This is why Guybrush can't remember what has happened to him in COMI for he has been in a trance ever since his rope broke after Elaine spoke to him in MI2.

Hope this clears things up. Any more questions?

Hey... you're all talking about endings. But the story continues!!

Wait for the final episode before you judge the end. I think it's best to look at the best parts of each of the Games. Personally, my favorite 2 parts are:

1) Part 2(?) in MI2 (I think that's right - it was so long ago, please correct me if I'm wrong). The part where you had to win the spitting contest and so on....

2) The journey to Monkey Island TM in SoMI - having to get all the ingredients etc. I don't know why, they're just the parts that hit me as my fabourite bits (Finally getting to see Monkey Island!)

I do like other parts tho, like training for swordfighting and the rest.

10-28-2000, 12:43 PM
ok, someody in here said they actually watched escape from monkey island's ending.....WHERE?!?!?!?! And to who ever missed the ending of monkey island 2 i will tell it for him. guybrush collects samples from various rooms to get a voodoo doll of lechuck. then after tearing off his arm and leg they do a parody of Star Wars 3 and have guybrush remove his mask to findthat lechuck is his brother. then all of a sudden guyrush is a child with his little brother chuckie (lechuck) at the carnival of big whoop and his parents are there. as they all walk away chuckie's eye glow to tell you that it is just a haullucination. then there was 3....

Wow this is a popular topic! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/cool.gif

Has anyone realised that the Monkey Island series has now spanned ten years!?
When I saw the ending to Monkey Island 2 I was still in primary school. Now I'm 20!

Yes the MI2 ending is definately a great Starwars pun. I think that back then when Ron Gilbert was about to leave Lucas Arts, LeChuck really was Guybrush's brother (Lucas Arts said at the time that they did not intend to continue the series past MI2 after Gilbert resigned to start his own company).

But in 1997 when Lucas Arts decided it was time to make some more sequels the story had to be re-sculpted a little.

So heres the deal:
-I reckon Guybrush copped a fair bit of shrapnel from the explosion.
-He had a damn hard fall on to the floor of a concrete tunnel.
-LeChuck inflicted all kinds of Voodoo Magic and incredible torture on him with a voodoo doll.
-And Guybrush had just broken up with Elaine so he was suffering from post-relationship depression.

So Guybrush was basically in a pretty ****ed-up state and LeChuck took the oportunity to use the power of 'Big Woop' to mess with his head.

-This explains the scary ending with Guybrush as a child with his parents and "Chuckie" as his brother.

Fact:
As explained by LeChuck himself near the end of CMI:
-Dinky Island is actually an atol of the coast of Monkey Island.
-The underground maintanence tunel connects the two Islands.
-It appears LeChuck had all ready established his 'Carnival Of The Damned' on Monkey Island.

But as somebody mentioned an elevator in the tunnel takes Guybrush up to Melee Island. How is this possible?

Theory:
The secret lies in the stump (in the forest on Melee Island.
All the islands in the Tri-Island area are actually connected by a series of voodoo-catacomb maintanence tunnels.

And all the pirates lived happily ever after.

Right I'm new to this and I haven't even got a reasonable quote for at the bottom of my message. I chose peg nose pete cos' I'm hunting the bastard and cos' you've all take up all the other names.

RIGHT LISTEN UP! I don't know about all this elevator stuff at the end of MI2 (Mission Impossible 2? No!) But all I know is that it took me a HELL of long time to complete that game (On both difficulties!). But I remember getting to the end and getting the "E" ticket and thinking that the only possible use for it would be that it is a ticket or p*** to another dimension. That's the only thing I could really figure.

CMI I think kinda ignored the MI2 ending or changed our perception of the ending with it's beginning.

WHY DID RON GILBERT leave! Didn't he want to make anymore? I know he didn't really like CMI.

I prefer the new Guybrush 3D look to that of Guybrush in CMI. Didn't think he looked as good as he did in the previous 2.

Weren't you all a little dissapointed when you opened you EMI box and only saw 2 disks! I wanted at least four! CMI was too small, it didn't seem as big a MI2.

I've just read this thread for the first time. And I have an answer to a question.

Someone (I don't remember who) asked what the significance of the "E" ticket was. Simple. At DisneyLand, an "E" ticket was a ticket that would allow you to ride a particular ride all day.

Hope that's put your mind at rest, whoever you are.

Ron Gilbert had a tantrum on leaving Lucasarts, which is why he ended MI2 the way he did. He couldn't conclusively end the series as he didn't own the rights (Lucasarts did) but he felt that by giving such a wierd ending, he would kill any chance they had of sensibly continuing it.

"After a long and joyable adventure, the enemies met each other in underground tunnels. LeChuck lost the fight, but the last thing revealed that this all (MI and MI2) had happened in two little boys minds.
The day in carnival has just started and the pirate-gaming was over.
"At least Ron Gilbert thought so. But LEC disagree, and the story continues"

B.T.W "Pelit" magazine gave 81 points o' 100 to EMI.

As far as this lovely topic goes:

(a) i dont care what CMI had to say about MI as i just care about what Ron Gilbert would have done. Though i still follow MI, i just take it as an interpretation and extension of Ron's MI.
(b) i like mi2 ending as it is strange and opens up alot of possibilities as this topic has proven <IMG SRC="http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smilies/cwm20.gif" border=0>
(c) god i'd kill millions to know what ron would have done.
