Rise of the Pirate God *speculation*

posted by CaptnDan on - last edited - Viewed by 259 users

After a lengthy play session of Siege, my thoughts naturally wandered to the rest of Tales and the direction it's heading with the Pox and a good, puzzle solving LeChuck. It occured to me that with the Pox spreading, and with Guybrush the first victim, could he be the Pirate God of the last chapter's title? And could the Pirate God be a villain?

How would you feel if in the final chapter, players have to control human LeChuck in order to defeat Guybrush Threepwood, ultimately sacrificing himself to restore them both to the pirates we love/love to hate?

  • Maybe it's De Singe after he uses his elixir.

    I've been assuming it's LeChuck but maybe not.

  • I think Guybrush is the cure as he can create an antibody as he may become immune, therefore he becomes like a god to all pirates who want to be cured

  • How about MacGuliicutty ?
    It's almost his goal already...

  • Some interviewer already spoiled this for me a while ago (in an interview with Dave I think), but I wont post what was said here.

  • LeChuck is the pirate god... he absorbs all the voodoo evilness again and becomes an "all powerfull" immortal/undead pirate again....

    Making guybrush the pirate god would mean the end of the saga

  • I think that in 'The Trial and Execution of GT' , Guybrush will be found guilty at the end of it, and just as he is about to 'serve' his sentence, the pox will completely take over him and he'll become a new leChuck like pirate. (aka the cliffhanger). I have a hunch that the last chapter we will play as Le'chuck, being the good guy, and having to defeat Evil pirate Guybrush.

    That truly would be amazing.

    And every puzzle you would be like: Anyone give me a hint?
    Elaine: Use...
    LeChuck: Aha, use...
    Elaine: ...fist...
    LeChuck: So, so, use fist...
    Elaine: God Pirate Guybrush

  • Not sure if I'd like to play as LeChuck against Guybrush.

  • IMO switching over to play as Lechuck in the last chapter would be really stupid. you have always played as Guybrush and spent all this time getting to know him, and then BOOM your Lechuck. It would kinda ruin it for me actually :/

    Yeah, that would make no sense and would an extreme injustice for all the characters. I like Guybrush way too much to want to defeat him. People are taking this good thing LeChuck way too far. Him sacrificing himself for Guybrush would ruin his character and would be pointless as we would just feel sorry for him once he become evil again. LeChuck is too valuable as a villain to just throw away or ruin that characterization.
