Post who you think is dumber: Lechuck or Guybrush. Try to post why, too. Remember, Guybrush also gets a lot of dumb luck; so don't think that defeating Lechuck four times makes him smarter.

On Christmas, I'll add up the votes and post a percentage as soon as possible.

Lechuck. If he wasnt dumber than Guybrush, he would keep having his plots foiled

I'd have to say that LeChuck is dumber... he's quite thick-headed. Guybrush may seem dimwitted at times, but he has his moments of brilliance. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/tongue.gif

no politicaly charged answer here. the winner is LECHUCK, u have to be stupid to be killed 3 times after your own death, and not go into retirement.

LeChuck! He is dumber because if he wasn't, then he would have gotten the hint that Elaine doesn't love him and leave Guybrush and Elaine live happily ever after.

During the third cutscene in EMI:
Guybrush steps on the luggage that Elaine is carrying
He squashes her package
He almosts knocks her unconsis

Lechuck won the election.

During CMI:
Guybrush turned Elaine to gold
Guybrush was repeatedly decked by Elaine

Lechuck constucted a giant carnival

During MI2:
Guybrush stuck a monkey and a dog in his pants(need I say more?)
Guybrush wore a dress

Lechuck sucsessfuly tricked Guybrush into thinking that he was a little boy

During MI1:
Guybrush got the short end of the stick from Stan
Guybrush sunk his own ship

Lechuck sucsessfuly kidnaped Elaine
Lechuck drowned Guybrush (if you let Guybrush sit down there long enough)

Take this into account

I'd say Guybrush Marley Threepwood is dumbest.

You see...you left yourself wide open to that one. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

Well personally, I think both Guybrush & LeChuck are equally clueless *BUT* Guybrush, he borrows our intelligence in lieu of his own. Heck, with me behind him Guybursh is a genius! (Okay, so maybe not... but at least he barely edges out LeChuck).

Of course, I cringe at the kind of trouble Guybrush gets into between the adventure games...

You: What is the Secret of Monkey Island?
Me: The secret is, is that there is no secret.
You: Huh? But what about Big Whoop, the Three-Headed Monkey, and/or The Big Honking Monkey Robot?
Me: Oh *THOSE*. Well you really can't call them secrets now, can you?
You: Huh?
Me: Well everyone knows about them now, don't they?
You: Well I guess...
Me: See, there you go. Since they're not secrets anymore, there is *NO* Secret of Monkey Island. So what has this taught you?
You: Never to spend, $39.99 on a computer game.
Me: Tsk, Tsk, BAD MONKEY!!! *Whack!* Besides, that was more or less a direct steal from an answer to the first Monkey Island game!

Guybrush is a lot dumber.

If lechuck is so dumb for dying, perhaps he knows he will come back?

He manipulated people like largo, and when he disguised himself as fester charles and charles l charles (are they related?) he tricked everyone.

Maybe he is letting guybrush think he is winning so that he can come back with an all- powerful gang of disembodied skulls...led by MURRAY!!! Bwahahahaha!

He is WAY ahead of guybrush, guybrush fluked it...

LeChuck has his momments of intelligence, but I suspect he's something like Mr. Burns of the Simpsons. Rather intelligent, but can't keep a train of thought for longer than a single episode. He's also pompous and overconfident.

Guybrush's quirky and roundabout methods always catch LeChuck off guard, and because Guybrush isn't much to look at, LeChuck doesn't know well enough to be careful around him.

LeChuck is smarter. Guybrush is only a puppet (to the controller)!!!

12-09-2000, 10:23 PM
LeChuck is dumber! On at least three occasions, he has Guybrush in his clutches. And he doesn't just kill him. Oh no, he either prepares some elaborate death-giving mechanism (didn't he ever watch Batman? They never WORK!), or leaves him on an island which he has escaped from twice before. Fool!

12-10-2000, 10:24 PM
although to be fair he did WANT to kill guybrush in emi but ozzie convinced him that he would make a good hostage.

Of course Guybrush! Wo else could escape the pirate 4 (!!!!) times? So that only means that he's so smart.
