** So ''Rise of a Warrior'' gets RandyCouture as the BigBad for an entry in a series that is known for having some pretty awesome melee fight scenes. The final battle should be pretty cool, with him being a hell of a UFC fighter and all. So what do they do? Have his character transform into a ''[[ConspicuousCGI horrendously]]'' animated giant ''invisible'' CG scorpion.

Cut natter.
** Well it is a title that's very impressive and [[TrueLies sounds scary]], it's not like [[OneSteveLimit only one guy would have wanted it]]. And this is historically correct, too, as there were at least ''two'' historical people that claimed (variations) of the title Scorpion King. *** It sure beats 'Ten Thousand Rabbits' as a name for a warrior king. Though the Maya apparently were impressed.

unfortunate implications need citations

** Funnily enough, the ''new'' ''Conan the Barbarian'' movie starring Jason Momoa has drawn some criticism for being a poor man's substitute for ''The Scorpion King''.

Similarly, Mathyus and the film's BigBad--who admittedly has been pretty non-action-y for most of the movie--have a climactic chariot race instead of any kind of sword fight.
