* EternalEnglish: In the first movie, Ahkmenrah speaks perfect English right out of the gate, which he explains as being from his time as an exhibit at Cambridge. In the second film, Kahmunrah first tries Egyptian, then French when he meets Larry before settling on English. In the third movie, Ahkmenrah's parents also speak perfect English.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Each film has a different one.
** In the first film, it's [[spoiler: Cecil the previous night guard]].
** In ''Battle of the Smithsonian'', it's Kahmunrah, Ahkmenrah's older brother.
** In ''Secret of the Tomb'', it's [[spoiler: Sir Lancelot]].


Added DiffLines:

** The other exhibits, who came from a colorful spectrum of era (Antiquity, Middle Ages, Old West, Colonial Period, etc.) also speak modern-day English, but in their case, it's justified, as they're wax statues, unlike the Egyptian exhibits, who are literal mummies.


Added DiffLines:

** There's also the third film, though in this case it also includes BystanderSyndrome. When the exhibits of the London Institute wake up for the first time ever, they proceed to ransack through the rooms with no security guards in sight. And when the lion statues get woken up ''in the middle of the museum's walkways where bystanders are clearly seen walking through it'', no one complains. It's possible that Tilly is the only guard, and she's asleep for most of it; when she wakes up, she's [[LoveAtFirstSight immediately captivated by Laa]].


Added DiffLines:

* InformedJudaism: Larry and his son. The third film has a mention of ''bar mitzvah'' as a throwaway joke, and the whole thing about Ancient Egypt enslaving Jews is used as a HistoricalInJoke when Larry meets with Ahkmenrah's parents. Justified, as Larry's family are New Yorkers.


Added DiffLines:

* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: Dexter becomes a statue again while resting in Larry's arms. The experience of seeing it disturbs Larry so much that he later admits his affection for him.]]
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: The New York exhibits no longer become animated (or, in the case of Ahkmenrah, ''rotting back to a corpse''), when the magic of the tablet goes away. Dexter in particular has this the most, complete with slowly dying in Larry's arms. It's undone when Lancelot gives in and has moonlight restore the magic again.]]

* FauxActionGirl: Amelia Earhart continually insists she is able to take care of herself, but isn't seen doing anything particularly [[{{Hotshot}} awesome]] except for flying a plane for about two seconds before handing it to Larry.

** In BOTS, Kahmunrah gets into the pop-culture wing and claims [[AllInTheFamily Archie Bunker's]] [[TheCouch "throne"]] as his own. He's also seen trying on Muhammad Ali's robe at one point, as well as passing on wearing [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy Gale's]] ruby slippers.

* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: The scene near the end [[spoiler: where all the exhibits are dying has Larry cradle a dying Dex. The focus seems understandable as the others are not technically alive; just wax sculptures of people brought to life that are reverting back to statues... except for Akhmenrah. Akhmenrah was a mummy on display, and therefore once a living human being. He is the only one besides Dex who is ''actually dying'', reverting back to a mummified corpse. However the movie glosses over his death to have the moment between Larry and Dex and Larry doesn't even spare Akhmenrah a glance]].

While this makes sense considering the movie's intended audience (kids love fluffy animals), it does seem rather heartless within the world of the film.

** There is also some less-than-subtle subtext implying that Ahkmenrah is in love with Larry.



** Also, when Ahkmenrah introduces himself to Larry as the "Great King of the Great Kings" of Egypt in the first movie, Larry replies, "I'm Larry...I'm from Brooklyn," which leads to Ahkmenrah calling him the [[InSeriesNickname "Guardian of Brooklyn" for the rest of the series]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the third movie when Larry notes that he's moved to Manhattan now, but Ahk replies that "Guardian of Brooklyn" just "sounds cooler."

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: After Teddy gets hit by the horse-drawn carriage, he gets cut cleanly in two down the middle, but just sort of comments "Oh, dear" in a "Well, that kind of sucks" way. Thankfully, Sacagawea fixes him.

* AffablyEvil / FauxAffablyEvil: Kahmunrah. Between his lisp and over the top antics he becomes rather likable. That being said, he tries to kill Larry/have him killed numerous times, and has no qualms about threatening or killing Larry's friends.
