Ivan later returns to Kahmunrah along with two fictional exhibits (Darth Vader and Oscar the Grouch) and they tell Ivan that they like to rule the world as well, but Ivan doesn't know who they were.
Ivan sends his henchmen to bring back the Tablet from Larry and Amelia after Kahmunrah thinking they were trying to flee.
