** The expansion of the next game in the series, ''VideoGame/PoseidonMasterOfAtlantis'', has you visit Egypt and South America and build some pyramids there, inspiring the locals to do the same.

* ''VideoGame/EmpireEarth II: Art of Supremacy'': The first campaign is set in Egypt around the end of the 6th dynasty. While there are no animated mummies, one level features starving peasants so desperate for food they break into the tombs and haul out the preserved corpses to feed on them.

* DatedHistory: Although slavery existed in Ancient Egypt [[note]]and much of it may have been closer to voluntary indentured servitude[[/note]], it is generally accepted by modern historians that its crowning achievement, the Great Pyramid of Giza, was ''not'' built by slave labour, but by the equivalent of paid contractors who were mostly skilled workers (the equivalent, because the pay took the form of food and other supplies. [[http://www.ancientegyptianfacts.com/ancient-egyptian-money.html Money was just getting started as a concept]] and coins didn't come into common use until Cleopatra's time.).

Interestingly, actual slave duties in Egypt were rather simple. Slaves were mostly used as cooks, maids, brewers, nannies, gardeners, stable hands, field hands, etc.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' had plans for an ancient Egypt inspired plane for decades, and finally achieved it in Amonkhet. Uniquely, it is mostly focused on a fictional Egypt as a living culture rather than as ThePrecursors. Until Hour of Devstation rolled along and it became an Old Testament disaster movie.

* A few villains from MarvelComics have their origins here:
** ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} was born in Aqaba thousands of years ago and taken in by a desert tribe with rather harsh SocialDarwinist beliefs. It was also here that he (of course) picked up technology from Marvel's resident AncientAstronauts, the Celestials.
** Kang, ConquerorFromTheFuture, spent a good deal of time in ancient Egypt as pharaoh Rama-Tut. In fact, he went back specifically in an attempt to recruit Apocalypse.
** The Sphinx was a court wizard to Rameses II until he was fired after a certain Hebrew mystic showed him up. Then he wandered into the desert and found a magic stone that made him immortal.
