- Critical Research Failure: While the show does strive to be as accurate as possible to the source material while throwing in a few intentional fictional things (such as the Scepter of Was and Tutankhensetamun himself), there are still a few points when the show gets things wrong.
- In the TV special Clash of the Pharaohs, Tut is tormented by his nightmare so much that his heart is seen beating out of it's canopic jar and bouncing around on the floor. Realistically the heart was left inside of the mummy as the Egyptians believed it to be the seat of the soul. Interestingly enough there has been cases of mummies without hearts but the heart was of that much importance that a symbolic replacement was usually put inside, and the heart never wound up in canopic jars as there was never need for one.
- Nightmare Fuel: Tut himself can be pretty damn scary, though most of the time he's more Ugly Cute.
- Tear Jerker: Something Sphinx, the perfect episode to woobify Luxor.
- The Woobie: Luxor, especially in the episode "Something Sphinx". Tut counts as a Jerkass Woobie at times.
