Dying is rough. All a pharaoh wants is a nice place to rest, surrounded by his millions of dollars in loot and valuable ancient artifacts, but there's always some joker that wants his stuff. So, the Mummy's gotta get out of his cozy sarcophagus and open a can of curse-ass in his [[ZombieGait shambling, arms-straight-out]], wrapped-in-bandages, way.

** One of the ''Scooby-Doo'' movies is called ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooInWheresMyMummy'', and features Velma herself as the mind behind the ScoobyDooHoax. The only reason she didn't tell the rest of the gang was because she was afraid they'd get mixed up in the plan.

* In ''UsefulNotes/NightAtTheMuseum'' a Mummy's magic tablet of stone brings all the statues and other displays to life at night. The Mummy himself is assumed to be evil because everyone knows Mummies are evil (plus the fact that he was banging on the sarcophagus cover and moaning)... [[spoiler: turns out though he's actually a really NiceGuy and just wants to be let out of his sarcophagus.]]

* In ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', one of the potential villagers that players can have in their town is dog who is wrapped head-to-toe in bandages named [[IronicName Lucky]]. However, the inside of his house is decorated to resemble an ancient Egyptian tomb, implying that he's actually dressed as a mummy.

* In ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'', the first area of the game is AncientEgypt, which appropriately features [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Mummy Zombies]] (though according to the in-game Almanac, they're just zombies wrapped in toilet paper). One of the enemies is even a [[NefariousPharaoh Pharaoh Zombie]], a mummy who is protected by his sarcophagus.

** He also was rather [[{{Fanservice}} easy on the eyes under all those wrappings]], rather than, you know, [[BandageBabe mummified]].

* According to the anime of ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' (by the mangaka of ''Deadline Summonner''), mummies in that setting are a zombie subspecies from desert environments, whose bodies are preserved by the climate. However, being preserved by the desert also means their skin has lost its moisture, requiring them to take long baths to replenish it. Many mummies also have difficult personalities, having been royalty or nobility in life.
