Veteran Member - Level 13
I’ve always been fascinated by Egypt. The moment I saw a
picture of a pyramid, I was hooked. When I was younger I would go to a museum
just because it had an exhibit on Egypt, I was that dedicated. But by far, the
thing that interests me most about Egypt is their mummifications. Mummies
apparently also interest game developers, because almost every fantasy game has
them. So put on the wraps and rise from the grave, these are the top 10 mummies
10-King Raymundo Rodiekhkare (The Sims 3)
Inside of the Pyramid of Burning Sands, you will find six
treasure chests. Upon opening one, the late pharaoh climbs out of his
sarcophagus to fight you. If you’re good enough at martial arts, you can defeat
him in hand to hand combat and take the spoils for yourself.
9-Dark Mummy (Terraria)
Once you defeat what appears to be the final boss of
Terraria, new monsters and bosses start appearing. One of these enemies is a
mummy who will fight you in the desert. But if you allow the desert to be
corrupted, these beasts will appear. They are faster than the average mummy,
and much more powerful too. If you are caught in a corner with them, it will be
tough to survive.
8-Mummipokey (New Super Mario Bros)
Practically every second world in Mario games is based off
of a desert, but very few actually have mummies. New Super Mario Bros was the
first to break that trend, and include a mummified pokey as the second boss.
Mummipokey will rise out of the ground to attack you, so you must jump on his
head 3 times if you want to defeat him. He was an easy boss, but at least he
7-Amunu (League of Legends)
One day, Amunu woke up and forgot everything. The only thing
that he knew is that he was a mummy and missed his parents, whoever they were.
He traveled across the desert searching for answers, but has received none. He
was invited to join the League so that he could have happiness, and he
obviously accepted. He still doesn’t know who his parents are, but at least he
is happier now.
When Duskull reaches level 37, he turns from a haunted lamp
into a mummy. According to its Pokedex entries, it eats by consuming things
into a black hole. Anything that touches its ‘mouth’ is completely devoured,
and never returns. However, the scariest thing about it so far is that if you
look inside of a Dusclops, your soul is stolen. Seriously. Look at the Soul
Silver Pokedex entry.
5-King Sandybutt (Banjo-Kazooie)
Once upon a time, the king ruled Gobi valley in the mortal
realm. But after his death, he was reborn as a Mum-mum inside of his pyramid.
He insults Banjo and Kazooie while they are searching for the Jiggy in his
pyramid, but curiously enough he isn’t even in his own throne room. To this
day, the whereabouts of Sandybutt are unknown, but some theorize that one of
the Mum-mums in the pyramid is the king himself.
4-The Gidbo Father (The Legend of Zelda: Mojara’s Mask)
The father used to research Gibdos (Zelda’s mummies) back in
his laboratory, until he decided to look inside of the Ikana Well. He was
cursed by the Gibdos, and slowly became a Gibdo. His daughter locked him in the
closet so that he couldn’t attack her, but Link foolishly opens the door
anyways. However, he plays the song of healing and turns him back into a Hylian
again. He is then happy to explain Gibdos to link and help him on the quest to
the Stone Tower Temple.
3-Pharoh Man (Mega Man 4)
Pharoh Man was an interesting robot master. He was created
just for robbing pyramids, who was also outfitted with a laser beam for some
reason. He’s based off of Tutankahman, and it shows with the mask. He is
defeated by using the Flash Stopper, which makes him take extra damage.
2-Anakaris (Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors)
When the boy pharaoh Anakaris
died, he was placed in his holy pyramid. 5,000 years later, he came back to
life to fight Pyron. With heavy strikes, Anakaris successfully pummeled Pyron
and traveled back in time to be with his subjects. Anarkis was apparently so
good that he even appeared in Marvel vs Capcom 2!
1-Chuck (Decap Attack)
A long time ago, Frank N Stien brought Chuck D Head back to
life. His task was simple: vanquish Max D Cap and free the islands that he
captured. Chuck attacks by tossing his skull at people frantically and jumping
on them like an undead Mario. He’s a true hero, and the only mummy deserving
the number 1 spot.
