The Mummies are recurring enemies in Metal Slug Series.
These are mummies of ancient Egyptians, and will attack anyone who disturbs their eternal slumber. These undead walk slowly across the area until they find a victim, upon which they project a purple gas from their lungs which mummify their victims. POW are not infected by any type of mummies' attacks. If you are transformed into a mummy, your movement is slowed, your firepower is brought down to a pistol with decreased fire rate, and there is a delay while throwing a grenade. "Mummification" can be cured if you find a magic vial which are dropped by enemies, prisoners and treasure chests in areas where mummies are present. Besides human mummies there are also mummy dogs, which can jump and have a longer attack range.
Regular Mummy Will attempt to shuffle towards their enemy and then breathe purple gas onto him/her. Anyone from a regular army soldier to a civilian who comes into contact with the gas will become a victim to mummification. If a playable character comes into contact with the gas while in mummy form then he or she will die. The easiest type to beat as the player only need to duck and shoot.
Poison Bullet Mummy Very similar to the regular mummy, except for their whiter colour. Rather than exhaling mummy poison, they instead spit out a bomb that will roll across the floor towards their opponent. These bombs contain mummification gas akin to the regular mummy's breath.
Fake Mummy These are just humans wearing amusement park mascot costumes, and as such they are completely harmless and don't really move anywhere. They only occur once in the series: the Haunted House mission. Before they are revealed to be fake they will appear to be doing a roar at the player, basically the same sprite mummies use to shoot purple gas, except when these type's eyes move creepily. Once they are revealed they will just sit in the same place scared.
- Mummies were the first supernatural enemies to appear in the Metal Slug Series.
