Governor L. Phatt was the morbidly ruthless obese fascist greedy dictator of Phatt Island. He never left his bed as he was fed every few seconds from a set of tubes. A bell nearby would ring to inform him of the incoming food. When not eating, he would usually be asleep. A rather large pipe can be seen underneath his bed, which leads outside the room. It can only be speculated that this pipe moves bodily waste from Phatt himself, as he is unable and unwilling to leave his bed.

He wrote his own autobiography Lick the Silver Spoon. It was available in the Phatt Island Library. He was a fan of reading, being an library card holder and regularly checking out books.

In a made up fib story, he bought the catering business The Sacking Lunch from the Men of Low Moral Fiber, only to later reveal that the Men of Low Moral Fiber were lying.

Phatt is protected by one guard who also carries out all other duties for the governor.

Meeting Guybrush ThreepwoodEdit

Phatt hoped to retrieve the bounty on Guybrush Threepwood that LeChuck had placed in order to fund his eating habits. With the bounty Phatt would cover his extravagant lifestyle.

He was almost successful, however Guybrush was resourceful enough to escape from his jail. He was completely unaware when Threepwood snuck into his home and stole the book Famous Pirate Quotations resting on his stomach.


  • In his sleep, he claimed a single-handed defeat of the Fudge Brigade in the past.
  • Compared to other characters Phatt was huge so only his head and hands were animated.
  • His name is a clear pun on the word 'fat'.
  • The Planet Threepwood restaurant chain references Phatt with its Phatt Phizz beverage in Escape from Monkey Island.
