An index of tropes about mummies, which are preserved corpses often wrapped in gauze bandages. They usually end up rising from their tombs as zombie-like beings. Mummies are usually pharaohs or other important people who lived and died millennia ago in Ancient Egypt, perhaps calling upon the powers of Anubis to help them cheat death.

This is a sub-category of the Undead Index. Not to be confused with tropes about mothers — The Parent Trope is the index for that.
