Arbitrary Skepticism: In the premiere, he witnesses (among other things) mummies coming to life, a man turning into what looks like bug monster, and statue-like warriors running around all over the place... but believing he's the reincarnation of a long dead Egyptian prince?Pfft. No way.
Broken Pedestal: When he learns his father took a job for Scarab, he was understandably pretty upset.
Rebuilt Pedestal: Although his father redeems himself in the end when he saves Presley's life.
Rookie Red Ranger: He isn't part of team itself, he's just being taught how to defend himself by the mummies because he possesses Rapses' immortal spirit, which means he can never be put on the front lines anyway.
Sheltered Aristocrat: At the beginning (though he's technically the reincarnation of an aristocrat).
Supporting Protagonist: Ja-Kal is the leader of the Mummies, but Presley is arguably the character that the series really focuses on.
Handicapped Badass: Armon, the team bruiser, has no right arm, as he lost it during his past life in Egypt. However, while transformed his armor gives him back the missing limb. He's still pretty formidable without it.
Heroes Fight Barehanded: Unlike the other mummies, Armon doesn't have a personal weapon in his armor form, although his golden arm technically counts as one.
Lethal Chef: He seems to be the only one who can stomach his own cooking.
The Southpaw: He became this when he lost his right arm in battle.
Action Girl: Nefer-tina, who fights right alongside the other three guardians of prince Rapses and even disguised herself as a guy to ride chariots in ancient Egypt. Is inexplicably still mistaken for a guy on occasion.
Samus Is a Girl: In the first episode, she reveals that she was a woman that pretended to be a man so she could drive chariots. Presley figured it out right away while her fellow bodyguards didn't realize it at all (it's not quite clear if somebody from a more gender-progressive society just has a better eye or if Prince Rapses knew too).
