Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfUndeadRegeneration: Strangely, Tut has been referred to as "rotting" many, many times during the series, and it's a running gag. But the definition of mummy is a dead body that in fact does ''not'' rot. It's never revealed whether or not Tut can heal (though the evidence points to: no).

*AdventurerArchaeologist: Cleo's father, (and Cleo at heart, if her dreams are any indication). The trope shows up a few other times during the show's run in minuscule ways.



* NephariousPharaoh: Tut is not and never has been a merciful person.




to:

* ZombieGait: Tut pulls this in the show's opening, and every once in a while in the show as well.

Added DiffLines:

* UndeathlyPallor: Afroasiatic Tut, in death, is somehow a pale green color (the dark color of his exposed hands and feet make this kind of confusing.)

**Ironically, the Ancient Egyptians believed the center of one's personality and knowledge was the heart, not the brain.

--> '''Cleo''': Luxor, this movie is so cheesy it's great! What are you so scared about?
--> '''Luxor''': That mummy eats brains!
--> '''Cleo''': Luxor, get real! Tutenstein's a mummy, he doesn't eat brains!
--> '''Luxor''': ''So far.''


Added DiffLines:

* StagesOfMonsterGrief: Initially averted. Tut accepts his undead-ness as part of his identity almost immediately. Later, when he begins to realize he'll be this way forever, it's played with. He mourns his flesh-and-blood body, and the fact that he'll never "grow up".

* NotGrowingUpSucks: An occasional source of angst for Tut. It comes to a head in "Old Man Tut", when he uses magic to grow into a teenager so he can cut off his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Youth_side_lock sidelock of youth]], but then has to deal with RapidAging.

* PaperThinDisguise: Cleo's pink hoodie and a pair of sunglasses are the only precautions Tut ever takes.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWouldCutYouUp: Presumably the reason Tut keeps himself hidden. It's never stated directly, but it's frequently said that for Tut being out in the open is not "safe", and it's hard to imagine anything else that would convince him to stay quiet.

Added DiffLines:

** YMMV of course, but she compares him to a little brother at the beginning of the series, and there are more than a few references to babysitting throughout the rest of the series. This show can truly be praised as one of the very few in which a male and female duo of main characters do ''not'', in fact, have any romantic ties.
