The Mummy is an undead Egyptian ranged myth unit in Age of Mythology. It is available to worshipers of Osiris.

Strategy Edit

The Mummy may at first glance seem weak - it has a mere 12 pierce attack and is rather fragile, expensive and takes up 5 population slots. However, its value comes from its truly mighty special attack - when spotting an enemy, a Mummy will exhale a black cloud of insects and death, killing the unit targeted. The dead unit automatically returns as an undead Minion under the player's control. Though this minion has a short lifespan, it will fight until its lifespan runs out or it is killed.

As with other instant-kill units, the Mummy is most effective when its special attack is micromanaged to slay the strongest and most expensive units on an enemy force. Due to their high population and favor cost, Mummies are hard to mass.

Curiously, despite the Minion being human, most non-humanoid units will still come back as the human Minion once slain by the Mummy.

Mythology Edit

Scientific name -- Homo sapiens
Size -- 7'+ tall
Diet -- feeds on emotions, especially terror

Heroes prepared for the afterlife were turned into Mummies by embalming and special rites. Among their duties in the next life might be the defense of sacred sites if robbers or other evil doers disturbed their rest. Then the Mummies would arise and destroy their enemies.

Trivia Edit

  • If a Mummy attempts to convert the Carcinos into a Minion, the Minion will be killed instantly due to the crab causing area damage upon its death.
  • Due to some inexplicable bug, Hippolyta can also be killed by Mummy's special attack in The Titans.
