* APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy: Lampshaded by the narrator when the Israelites are engaging in idolatry:
-->'''Narrator''': And the people rose up to play, and did eat and drink. They were as the children of fools and cast off their clothes. The wicked were like a troubled sea, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. They sank from evil to evil and were viler than the earth. And there was rioting and drunkenness, for they had become servants of sin. There was manifest all manner of ungodliness and works of the flesh. Even adultery and lasciviousness, uncleanness, idolatry and rioting, vanity and wrath. And they were filled with iniquity and vile affections, and Aaron knew that he had brought them to shame.

* EntitledBitch: Nefretiri is so insistent that Moses will cease being God's deliverer and and come back to her.



* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Discussed by Ramses, concerning the first few plagues.



* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Nefretiri. Moses tells her himself that she'll be part of God's plan to free the slaves.



* WomanScorned: Nefretiri becomes this toward the end. She was once betrothed to Moses but now married to Rameses. When Moses returns, Nefretiri puts the moves on him, but is "spurned like a harlot in the street." She decides to get back at him by being the one who hardens Pharaoh's heart.
