Prince Mushroomkhamen is a minor character who appears in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode, "Mind Your Mummy Mommy, Mario".

Prince Mushroomkhamen, who bears a physical similarity to Mario.

Prince Mushroomkhamen was once the prince of Desert Hill, but is now a mummy confined to a sarcophagus. His parents are Queen Mushroomkhamen and King Mushroomkhamen. Ironically, Mario bears a great resemblance to Prince Mushroomkhamen. As the sarcophagus was never opened, the current, mummified state of Prince Mushroomkhamen was never actually seen.

The prince was stolen by Hip and Hop Koopa, which incited the rage of Queen Mushroomkhamen, who terrorized Desert Hill in a rage. She later saw Mario, mistook him for her son, and forced him to take his place. In the end, the prince was found and returned to his mother by Princess Toadstool, Luigi, and Toad.

Trivia[edit]

  • Prince Mushroomkhamen's name is a portmanteau of "mushroom" and the name "Tutankhamen"; King Tutankhamen was an Egyptian pharaoh whose ornate soild gold sarcophagus became famous in modern times ever since his discovery in 1923. Tutankoopa, a Koopa based on the same Egyptian Pharaoh later appeared in Paper Mario.
