During the long wait for a third, we got the SpinOff[=/=]{{Prequel}} ''Film/TheScorpionKing''. It had Wrestling/TheRock fight Egyptians and sorcerers and stuff like that. It had pretty much nothing to do with the original two films, but had the same approach to humour and the action scenes in particular were considered awesome, if only for the fact that this is what happens to ''anything'' involving DwayneJohnson. ''Film/TheScorpionKing'' itself got a direct-to-DVD pre-prequel, ''The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior'', and two sequels, ''The Scorpion King 3: Battle For Redemption'' and ''The Scorpion King 4: Quest For Power''. The existence of a fourth movie means that Universal made a sequel to a sequel to a prequel (to the original ''Scorpion King'') of the prologue of a sequel (''The Mummy Returns'') of a remake (''The Mummy''). Is your head hurting yet?

* HijackedByJesus: ''The Mummy Returns'' paints Anubis as a {{Satan}}ic figure who [[DealWithTheDevil buys souls]] in exchange for worldly power. The Anubis of actual Egyptian myth was one of the good guys.

The Anubis of actual Egyptian myth was one protected graves, guided the dead to the afterlife and even attended the weighing of the heart against sins, and was a good guys.guy, if not one you'd be in a hurry to meet.

** When Imhotep is first fully regenerated, he's wearing body-covering and very BadAss black robes. After his travel-via-dust devil, he spends the rest of the film wearing a translucent off-the-shoulder drape and what are effectively Egyptian bootyshorts. Ladies, you're welcome.

Added DiffLines:

** though the theory is due to the REAL Imhotep existed long before Seti I (and was awesome), that this one is an Imhotep named by overly ambitious parents.

* AerithAndBob: The institution where Evelyn worked apparently employed a "Muhammad", an "Abdullah", and a "Bob".
** Given that said institution is located in the Arabic country colonized by the British, it is more a case of real-life MeltingPotNomenclature.



** Also tends to overlap with HellIsThatNoise.



** I will not list the things she will do to you... it would be bigger than the entirety of the trope page!



** It's ''possible'' the Imhotep of the movies was named after this man (in-universe). Both were highly-regarded priests.\\
\\
The historical Imhotep was also an architect. He was the designer of the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, the tomb of the Pharaoh Djoser, and thus the inventor of the Egyptian pyramid.
*** Some theories contend that Imhotep was the Biblical Joseph.

* BiggerBad: Mathayus a.k.a. The Scorpion King, but the prequels kind of [[AvertedTrope averts]] this.
