Guybrush Ulysses Threepwood is the protagonist of the Monkey Island series of games. He debuted in The Secret of Monkey Island.


His name results from the software suite that Lucasfilm Games programmers used to design his sprite. They saved his file with the name 'guy.brush', which became his first name. His last name came from a contest held among Lucasfilm Games staff.
