Minifigs for the Pharaoh's Quest are broken up into two groups, humans, who serve as the heroes, and the creatures who serve the Pharaoh. There are also six treasures that referenced as being the items that the humans seek to stop the Pharaoh from gaining the power to take over the world.
Pharaoh Amset-Ra - Ruled ancient Egypt thousands of years ago and hoarded his riches. Sought immortality and great power, but was sealed away when 5 of the 6 treasures that would grant him power to take over the world were stolen.
Mummy Warrior - Serve their master, the Pharaoh and travel in packs.
Flying Mummies - More dangerous, but rarer, they soar through the sky on magical wings of Horus.
Anubis Guard - Elite warriors of the Pharaoh that wear masks of the jackal headed Anubis. Their wrappings have been enchanted to make them almost as strong and tough as stone. They protect the Scorpion Pyramid.
Giant Scarab - the scarab has been in hibernation for thousands of years waiting for an adventurer to try to dig up the golden stone.
Stone Cobra - the stone cobra looks like mere sandstone carving but with the Pharaoh's command it will come to live and defend the Golden scarab shield.
Sphinx - this statue is no myth it will magically come to live and defend the golden sword from all attackers.
Giant Scorpion - this stone statue turned to stone to protect the sixth treasure from invaders and adventurers.
