He was to remain sealed inside his sarcophagus; the undead for all of eternity. The Medjai will never allow him to be released, for he would arise a walking disease. A plague upon mankind. An unholy flesh-eater with the strength of ages, power over the sands, and the glory of invincibility!
~ The Narrator describing Imhotep's mummification and the consequences of releasing him from his slumber.
Similar to Zombies and Skeletons, Mummies are undead villains whom usually depicted as reanimated corpses that are preserved via mummification, hence the name - they are often believed to have supernatural powers such as curses and magic, beyond the standard powers of a zombie or skeleton and are thus seen as a "higher undead" much like Liches, Vampires or some Revenants.

Commonly Egyptian, these creatures are among the most popular movie monsters of all time. The most well-known mummy is the first of the genre, Imhotep.
