Tropes associated with Rick:
Tropes associated with Evelyn:
"I hate mummies! They never play fair!"
Played By: John Hannah
Tropes associated with Jonathan:
- Action Survivor
- Big Brother Instinct
- The Chick/The Smart Guy: Evey and Alex are both quite intelligent too, but Jonathan is the most resourceful.
- Cowardly Lion
- Deadpan Snarker
- Fake Mixed Race
- Fake Nationality
- Let's Get Dangerous: Jonathan may be a ridiculously greedy, swindling Plucky Comic Relief, but he is also a crack shot with a rifle, a skilled pickpocket, and disturbingly competent with a book of ancient spells. When Evy's in danger, Jonathan orders the guard mummies to kill Anck-sunamun without any hesitation.
- The first moment he really seems to Get Dangerous is the climax of the first film: when the first reanimated mummies appear in the treasure room and his two-shot derringer proves almost useless, he promptly pulls the revolvers from Rick's holsters to continue shooting.
- Lovable Coward
- Mixed Ancestry: See Evelyn's entry.
- Only in It for the Money
- Plucky Comic Relief
- Would Hit a Girl: Jonathan in the second movie, who sucker punches Anck-su-namun at one point. He seemed just as shocked at what he did as she was, however.
- Probably more because they were surprised that he actually landed a hit, since they both knew he was completely outmatched.
Played By: Freddie Boath & Luke Ford
Tropes associated with Alex:
- Brats with Slingshots: In the second film.
- The Chosen One: To use the bracelet of Anubis. Well he chose himself really.
- Chekhov's Skill: Like his uncle Jonathan, Alex is established early on as learning how to read hieroglyphics. This eventually pops up after Evy dies and they need to resurrect her using the Book of the Dead... written in hieroglyphics.
- He uses a child's natural talent of misbehaving on Lock-Nah, knowing he can't hurt him or kill him until they reach the pyramid.
- Deadpan Snarker: He sure does take after his father.
- Idiot Ball: As Rick lampshades, what the hell was Alex thinking when he decided to go and uncover the Emperor?! It's not like his family haven't had a long history dealing with curses and mummies... does it ever end well?!
- In the Blood: Alex is not the first person in the family to be a Disaster Domino.
- He Is All Grown Up: In the third film.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be a brat, but he actually has a good heart and is rather smart.
- May-December Romance: With Lin. Although Lin is about the same age as Alex, she and her mother had been rendered immortal for 2,000 years due to the power of Shangri-La's waters. Of course, her mother took care of the problem by sacrificing their immortality in order to summon an undead army to stop the Emperor.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He inadvertently awakens the Dragon Emperor from his tomb simply by digging him up. Of course, he was being manipulated into doing so at the time, so it's a given.
- The Smart Guy: He is intelligent far beyond his years, a trait his parents never hesitate to acknowledge. He is able to speak and read Ancient Egyptian better than Jonathan having been taught by Evelyn and is able to use the Book of the Dead to resurrect her when she is killed by Anck-su-namun.
- Tag Along Kid
- Too Dumb to Live: Alex in the second film. Given who his parents are, all of the ancient traps and cursed objects they've encountered and that the Temple they found the Bracelet in immediately self-destructed upon its removal... what made him think that putting the damn thing on his arm was at all safe?!
- In fairness, he was eight years old at the time.
- This doesn't however forgive his stupidity for waking up the Emperor in the third film.
- Took a Level in Badass: He and Rick slew the Dragon Emperor.
