Hidden Trophies

  • Mop Top
  • Hot Headed
  • Dead Dead Dead
  • Relief Pitcher
  • Ahoy There
  • On the Lam
  • Dead Sea Diver
  • I Don’t Believe

There are a total of 40 trophies you can obtain during the course of the game. The list consists of:

  • 1 Platinum Trophy
  • 3 Gold Trophies
  • 12 Silver Trophies
  • 24 Bronze Trophies

Many of the trophies in Return to Monkey Island are obtained organically. There are, however, those that are obtained by going above and beyond your duties, particularly your mopping duties. The ones that come to mind are Mop Top, Super Swabbie, and Neat Freak.

As with every Monkey Island game, there are things that can only be accomplished with patience and exploration. Also, answering the right questions.

The Trivia related trophies are going to take some time. Especially if you are asked to answer 100 questions to get the Gold Trophy.

And finally, you may want to do a couple of runs before attempting the Speed Runner trophy. There are a lot of things that could potentially mess up your run. I know the feeling of cutting it close.
