Hard quiz. I was tempted to enter the names of three certain Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. The three being Slifer the Sky Dragon, Obelisk the Tormenter, and The Winged Dragon of Ra, a.k.a. the three Egyptian God Cards.

damn.. how did I miss Osiris. I must not have been thinking AND completely not seen the clue. I used to joke with my friends in high school that we all were in hell because the attendance system was named Osiris.

3/13. Some quizzes are more for learning than to have any hope of getting a half-reasonable score, and here I've done a lot of learning!

How about accepting Amon as an alternative spelling? Also, I would say that Anubis is more known for being jackal-headed, although the Wikipedia article mentions African golden wolf right at the beginning.

Some gods have different spellings. For instance Amun can be written also as Amon, Ammon, Amen, Hammon (according to Wikipedia). I got "Amun" on the fourth attempt.

I agree, should add the alternate spelling amon, etc.

Literally used ‘The Prince Of Egypt’ to get half of these because of that ‘Playing With The Big Boys Now’ song. 😂

really fun quiz! i would change the question that talks about the wolf headed god to a jackal headed god, since that's usually what he's considered! (that one threw me off...)

I enjoyed this quiz. My only critic is Anubis had the head of a jackal, not a wolf.

When you can only think of the name they had in Stargate instead of their more common name. Doh. Thanks, Heru-ur.
