In 1957, the Cemetery Warrior was one of two guards that moved to fend off Jones and Williams as grave robbers at the Chauchilla Cemetery while searching for Orellana's grave. When his partner got killed by his own poison dart thanks to Jones' intervention, the Cemetery Warrior fled through a hole as Indy threatened him with his pistol, saving his own life.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Cemetery Warrior was played by Nito Larioza in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
In the film's shooting script, the Cemetery Warrior had a longer confrontation with Mutt Williams. In this version of the story, after the Warrior's blowdarts hit the handle of Mutt's shovel, Mutt throws his switchblade, grazing the Warrior's shoulder. The bleeding Warrior would then attempt to retaliate with the knife, but Indiana Jones disarms him with his whip causing the Warrior to flee through the same hole used by his partner. An apparent third, Cemetery Warrior wielding a bone would have appeared but he is chased away when Jones cocks his gun as with what happens to the Nito-played Warrior in the final film.
In the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull comic book adaptation, the two Cemetery Warriors get a much different fate: Indiana Jones drives them both off a cliff with his whip.
The Cemetery Warrior action figure packaging claims that there were three warriors present. The character is also included in the 2009 sets of the LEGO Indiana Jones franchise. In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, the Cemetery Warrior attacks with more than one partner.
