Revenge of the Pharaohs

2nd of 19 episodes in DiC season 1. Written by Ted Pedersen. First aired September 26, 1990.

Previous episode: United We Stand
Next episode: Granny Dearest

While G.I. Joe is in Egypt investigating rumors of Cobra activity, Night Creeper Leader attempts to steal a Pharaoh statue from a museum. A head injury during battle causes NCL to believe he is the reincarnated Pharaoh. Destro persuades Cobra Commander that NCL's delusions could be used to solve Cobra's financial problems. Cobra takes a dam and threatens to flood Pyramid City unless Egypt is turned over to Night Creeper Leader. As the Joes help evacuate Pyramid City, NCL kidnaps Lady Jaye, intent on making her his queen.

As Ambush and Grid-Iron try to defuse bombs at the dam, Cobra begins looting the evacuated city. Alerted by Lady Jaye, the Joes chase Cobra out of the city, but Night Creeper Leader blows the dam before all its bombs can be defused. Joe and Cobra work together to seal the canyon leading to the city so they can escape. Night Creeper Leader flees, giving up his dream of being Pharaoh, but he allows Lady Jaye to depart in peace.
