* WritersCannotDoMath: Played with. Some bobblehead {{Albert Einstein}}s tell Larry that the value of π (pi) is 3.14159265 "to be exact", however, they were specifically providing the exact code for the tablet, rather than saying that this is definitely where Pi stops.

** Amelia flies off into the sunset at the end. Unless the plane turned to dust with her, there's going to be [[FridgeHorror one hell of a crash]] in the morning. May be lampshading the real Amelia Earhart's fate where she disappeared while flying over the Pacific in 1937.

* 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.
