Mummies are remains of once-living creatures, from humans to animals, that have been preserved by any number of means so that the remains will not decay in different conditions. Mummies occur worldwide, but ones most notable are ones in Egypt, and were often thought to be affiliated to curses. They are the central focus to the titular movie, its sequels and remakes.




Emperor Han


Mummified Soldiers


The Soldier Mummies from The Mummy (aka Soldiers of Amun Ra) have been guarding in Hamunaptra for over 3000 years. When summoned from the Golden Book of Amun-Ra, The Soldier Mummies were ordered by Imhotep to kill Rick O'Connell only four mummies survived and were ordered from Jonathan Carnavan to kill the mummifed Anck-Su-Namun instead. In The Mummy Returns they reappear again in the British Museum warehouse so they can get their revenge against Rick and company.

Imhotep's Priests


In life



Priests of Osiris are minor villains in the film, The Mummy. They are his personal bodyguards that served Imhotep, and they were all condemned to be mummified alive as their punishment.

Imhotep reached into the broken Canopy jar that once had held Anck-Su-Namun's heart and pulled out the desiccated organ, holding it in his hand before crushing it into dust and blowing it against a stone mural of two priests. Muttering an incantation, Imhotep brought the imprisoned priests to life; the priests in the mural were two of his priests from ancient times which had been mummified alive and being encased within the walls. Imhotep gave them the order to kill Rick O'Connell and the others and awaken the other priests.

In spite of their attacks against Rick, Jonathan, and Ardeth Bay, they were destroyed as well.



Cannibal Pygmies, also colloquially known as Pygimes, are small, mummified humanoid beings that resided in the Oasis of Ahm Shere and minor villains in both The Mummy Returns and enemies in its videogame adaption of the same name.

The pygmies were known for their savagery towards living humans and killed any that ventured into the sacred Oasis because they were ordered by their master, the Scorpion King who does not want any trespassers in his Oasis.

The pygmies were small skeletal beings that once were alive, and were composed of flesh and blood. The pygmies had been in the Oasis of Ahm Shere for thousands of years before they began to age along with the Golden Pyramid in the center of the Oasis.

The pygmies had thus taken on a withered appearance, with exposed bones and empty eye-sockets. The pygmies had also aged to the point that some specimens were covered with moss and had twigs and roots growing from their hollowed-out skulls. About the size of a human child with heads that were size of an adult human, the pygmies were equipped with razor-sharp teeth and enlarged eye sockets. Though the pygmies could likely take no nourishment from eating whoever or whatever they caught and killed, they still hunted humans that visited their Oasis.
