Recap: Kim Possible S 1 E 12 Pain King Vs Cleopatra

Ron is excited to see wrestlers Pain King and Steel Toe at the mall, but Kim is more interested in the Cleopatra's Closet exhibit. The two events collide when a theft from the exhibit leads to trouble at the wrestling match.


This episode provides examples of:

  • Argument of Contradictions: Pain King and Steel Toe exchange taunts for the benefit of the fans:
    Ron: Wrestling is more than two guys beating on each other. It's also a war of words.
    Pain King: You're going down!
    Steel Toe: No, you're going down!
    Pain King: No, you're going down!
    Steel Toe: No, you're going down!
    Kim: Yeah, they're poets.
  • Flat "What.": Kim gives a hilarious one when she learns that Monique is into wrestling.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Pain King and Steel Toe bluster at each other like archenemies in front of the fans, and chat casually like good friends backstage.
  • Pro Wrestling Episode
  • Sadly Mythtaken: The talisman plot uses the common error of treating Anubis like a malevolent demonic figure. In actual Egyptian mythology, he was simply the guide who escorted the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
