    (Bump)

    Would you reply if I typed some of the character descriptions?

    Guybrush: A naive but enthusiastic youth whose first words in the game are (basically): "I want to be a pirate! ...Er, where do I sign up?" Not the most intelligent character, but makes up for it in persistence, and luck. Mostly luck. Awkward. Has a tendency to romanticize things. Self-confident but completely unable to get others to put any trust in his own abilities. Not really much of a hero, actually.

    LeChuck: The evil, undead pirate bad guy person/thing. Also quite persistent, in that he pursues unrequited love with Elaine even after death. In the first game, keeps most pirates so afraid that they stay on land. Always comes up with evil schemes to achieve his goals. Often can capture or otherwise defeat Guybrush, but never actually bothers to finish him off fully. Sadistic but with a twisted sense of humor.

    Elaine: Governor of ____Island (this changes from game to game). A strong, fearless woman who can take care of herself (even when Guybrush tries to help). Apparently short on patience, though, with a quick temper. Balances out Guybrush's overactive imagination. Also the target of many a crush, and knows it.

    The other characters I couldn't really think of enough information to type well, but if you actually played the games or watched said play you might get a feel for their types.

    I would say Guybrush is sort of INFpish ... he acts girly and his girlfriend is the active/masculine type.

    One of my all time favorite game series! Absolutely love this game.


    Guybrush is like Maxwell Smart in Get Smart or Inspector Gadget. He means well in everything he does but frequently messes things up only to stumble on the right course of action even if it wasn't entirely his doing. I think INFp or ISFp would work.
    Elaine Marley-Threepwood I think might be something like ENFj
    Murray (lol) - A serious inferiority complex. I don't really know about type though.
    Haggis seems like a stereotypical Delta ST something.
    Stan is a Gamma SF, I think ESFp works well.
    Voodoo Lady I think is Beta NF
    LeChuck ... eh, there isn't really a whole lot I can grab from him personality wise since he's a standard sort of villain

    I love Monkey Island! I've only played 1-3 though, and not recently, so I can really only remember Guybrush's dialogue with any certainty.

    I think Guybrush is some sort of irrational intuitive type (he needs to be intuitive to solve some of those puzzles), and

    Also he stores things in his pants in MI3. I can see ILE or IEI for him.
