Lesser known than Egyptian mummies, Chinchorro mummification consisted of several different techniques due to their differing climate. The black mummy technique involved taking the dead person's body apart, discarding the soft tissue, treating it, and reassembling it. The body was heat-dried, and the flesh and tissue were completely stripped from the bone by using tools. Evidence exists that the bones were dried by hot ashes or coal. Then, the skin was refitted to the body, sometimes in smaller pieces, sometimes replaced by sea lion skin, and was finally painted with a black manganese. It is unknown exactly why the Chinchorro mummified their remains. Some theories reason that it helped the soul survive, others that mummies provided a gateway or link to the afterlife.

Down Attack - A downward slam.
Unique Grab - Rather than the customary upwards throw, the Mummy's grab slams the opponent behind them.
Neutral Special - The Mummy spits/vomits a ball of fire, which bounces until it either extinguishes or ignites an enemy. Distance and trajectory proportional to duration of button press.
Up Special - The Mummy will spit fire into his hands and then mold it into a stationary floating orb. Functions more as a trap than an attack.
Down Special - The Mummy will punch the ground, sending out a 360 degree flame shockwave.
Jump Neutral Attack - A bidirectional punch.
Jump Forward Attack - An over-head slam.
Jump Backward Attack - The Mummy will kick behind him and then punch.
Jump Up Attack - An airborne direct uppercut.
Jump Down Attack - A narrower-range downward slam. Can hit enemies directly under Mummy.
