* DisproportionateRetribution: It's hard to blame the gods for being annoyed with [[JerkAss Tuten]][[RoyalBrat stein]], but threatening a ten-year-old child with eternal damnation for crimes like vandalizing a wall or cheating at a board game seems a ''little'' harsh. Cleo even points this out, mentioning that in spite of his position, is just a kid.

Added DiffLines:

* SpottingTheThread: In the episode Keep You’re Wandering Eye To Yourself, Kara says Cleo is doing the right thing to keep tut away. Cleo concurs until she realizes she never told her his name.


In the series, the young mummy Tutankhensetamun (based on real-life Tutankhamun and usually called "Tutenstein" as in the title) is awakened about 3,000 years in a museum after his accidental death and now has to face the fact that his kingdom is gone. Helping him out is 12-year-old Cleo Carter, a girl interested in Ancient Egypt, and a magical cat named Luxor, who is both Cleo's pet and Tut's servant. The trio face a variety of issues caused by Tut's inexperience as a pharaoh, but frequently involving figures from Ancient Egyptian legend, most notably Set, the god of chaos, who seeks Tut's Staff of Was -- a magical artifact that grants it wielder the right to rule over the world.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeFreezeTrollingSpree: In the episode "The Boat of Millions of Years" has Tut wishing a movie night would last longer. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor This causes Ra the Sun God to get captured on his journey through the underworld and time stops altogether]]. Later when Cleo and Luxor wake up they first get everyone frozen on the street out of harm's way. However when they find Walter in the museum they decide to prank him. They replace the burgers he is about to eat with skulls and a sword, puts a wig on his head and a skirt on him. When time unfreezes, Walter bites the skull and thinks he's [[AlienAbduction being messed with by aliens]].

Added DiffLines:

* ScalesOfJustice: The episode ''Curse Of The Pharaoh'' has Tutenstein go through the weighing of his heart[[note]]For obvious reasons he couldn't use his original heart so he used a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_scarab Heart Scarab]], which is described as some sort of spare heart.[[/note]] again in order to get rid of Ammut.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassGods: Most of the Egyptian Gods are shown to be as temperamental, arrogant, and dangerously and randomly vindictive as Tut and often are the cause of many problems in different episodes (e.g. the Goddess of Love Hathor becoming offended that an obnoxious Tut wasn't getting respect and having a pyramid built for him so she turns into Sekhmet to kill some construction workers, the God Ra being furious at those who deny his authority, the Goddess Isis trying to eternally damn Tut for vandalizing a wall and cheating at a board game, etc.) Set happens to be the worst of the bunch.
