Idea for a new villain but still use LeChuck

It seems like a lot of people would like the introduction of a new main villain, while others still prefer LeChuck to be the main evil. I would love if LeChuck had a female accomplice who would also serve as the main villain. There are many similar stories in media where a deranged sick-minded villain has a beautiful woman by his side doing his dirty work for him, such as the story with Joker and Harley. I always thought it would be interesting if there was a female villain who became obsessed with LeChuck and was in love with him.

Make her into a central character who yearns to please LeChuck, but LeChuck is simply manipulating her and is only using her in his plans to conquer the seas and capture Elaine. I think it would be an interesting and tragic story arc, where you can actually sympathize with her, but must defeat her as well. Sort of a spin on the Morgan character, but this one is obssessed with LeChuck.

  • I actually wondered if Morgan might become more of a villainous character, but working for the Voodoo Lady rather than LeChuck. But they could introduce a completely new female villain like the one you've mentioned. I like the idea of this villain having some sort of obsession with LeChuck too, I wonder how he would react to that? :D

    It's a nice idea that he could have someone who respects him. Back in SMI LeChuck had a whole crew of ghost pirates who were intimidated by him, but in more recent games there hasn't really been as much respect for him from the other characters - not to mention that the Voodoo Lady seems to be messing with him too! It might be nice to bring in a new character who looks up to him.

  • Ghost Pirate LeChuck
    Zombie Pirate LeChuck
    Demon Pirate LeChuck
    Statue Pirate LeChuck
    Human Pirate LeChuck
    God Pirate LeChuck

    What's next? They kinda went all out with the LeChuck powerups. No more room left. There needs to be a new main villain.

    They haven't used the legendary Walrus LeChuck yet.

  • How about Goblin Pirate LeChuck? Or maybe LeChuck O' Lantern. :p

  • I don't understand why LeChuck must have a new form every time they want to use him. I say they stick with one sinister appearance and just use it for whatever amount of games is left. I mean villains such as the Joker remain exactly the same for the most part, but that doesn't take away from how evil they are or how well known they are.

    It would be ridiculous if they didn't use such a great villain such as LeChuck simply because they couldn't think of another form for him to use. Stick with the pox form: yellow eyes, rotten teeth and flesh, bony fingers, and that’s good enough for me. They should focus more on character development rather than appearance.

  • Combine the two: LeChuck becomes a woman!

  • As long as it isn't an Aussie land developer, I'm game.

  • @Dadel said: And he could refuse to make Guybrush a sandwich.

    There is an easy way around that

  • Honestly, I'd vote for bringing back Allegro Rasputin in a bigger role. The guy literally worshiped LeChuck.

    As for the next possible form of LeChuck...the only thing I could think of would be Essence of LeChuck. A few wispy strands of ectoplasmic voodoo energy connecting a few rotting chunks of pirate corpse, desperately clinging to some form of sentience. Much more animalistic/crazy desperate.
