* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: As evil and selfish as the Pharaoh is, he seems to genuinely love his son. During the Plague of Darkness, he became concerned when his son told him how scared he was of the darkness. He also was greatly distraught over the tenth plague claiming his sonís life. Special mention goes out to him attempting to keep watch over his sleeping son despite it doing him no good.

* HappilyEverBefore: As usual. The rest of the story is a cycle of Hebrews screwing up badly, Moses begging God for mercy and some Hebrews dying. At least the older generation will not see the Promised Land.



** Tzipporah does not travel with Moses to Egypt, but she appears when the Hebrews are moving [[note]]In the Bible, Moses brought Tzipporah and his son/offspring to Egypt.[[/note]]

* SettingUpdate: A minor example. Rabbinical Judaism tells us that Moses lifespan corresponds to 1391-1271 BC, telling us the Exodus happened in 1311 BC and thus that the Pharaoh of the Exodus would have been Horemheb, the predecessor of Ramesses I who is the father of Seti. Jerome, on the other hand, gives Moses' year of birth as 1592 meaning the Exodus would have been in 1512 with Thutmose I as the Pharaoh and Ussher gives Moses' year of birth as 1571 meaning the Exodus would have been in 1491 with the Pharaoh being Thutmose II.

As in the film that this one is a mockbuster of, Rameses II is the Pharaoh of the [[Literature/BookOfExodus Exodus]] and he has a brotherly relationship with Moses. However, this version is more faithful to ''Literature/TheBible''.
