Would you be scared by one? I would be scared depending on how they came out.

It's not a matter of being scared, it's being staartled. If Mr. Roger's popped out of nowhere, it could cause someone to jump and scream.

^Now that would be scary, considering that Mr. Rogers has been dead for over three years.

Ah yes, I forgot. He comitted sepuku after winning The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.

Well, if he hadn't died you would understand fully what I meant.

I'd be really scared if a temple gaurd grabbed me in The Room of the Ancient Warriors. Other than that though, i doubt they would frighten me.

When I was younger, I told myself that I'd love to be on the show, but not make it to the temple, just because of those temple guards. They absolutely terrified me as a kid! I could hardly watch the Chamber of the Sacred Markers at the time, just because the guard was so well-hidden. Now, of course, I'd love to go through the temple, although I still wouldn't like it if a guard grabbed me from behind like that.

I imagine that of all places, The Dark Forest would be the scariest place to get nabbed.

Also any room where they come out of the ground, like the Swamp or the Quicksand Bog.

I always thought that it would be funny if the contestant jumped into the Swamp and landed on the temple guard.  :lol:

I always thought it was really cool when there was a temple gaurd in The Holes of Python cuz they would be in between two of the boards and then burst out of the sand (styrafoam). :D


Unfortunately.... i can only remember like 2 or three instances of this.

I'd be really scared if a temple guard got me, which is one of the reasons I'd go into the temple as the 2nd runner instead of the frontrunner.

I think the best ones were always the second they ran in to the temple to go the ledges and before they were even in they leaped and scared the crap out of em.  8)  I always got the best laughs at those, even now if they hadn't I'd probably still be knocked back...maybe not like Henry the VIII back but ya know lol.

If there was a temple guard in the Chamber Of The Sacred Markers which was hidden in the Kings Storeroom entrance (where that ladder is) I'd definately be scared.

I would be scared in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. I'd be scared if all of a sudden, someone just grabbed me.

I'd be a little scared if I got one in the Chamber of the Sacred Markers (only behind the door guarding the ladder to the King's Storeroom) & the Room of the Ancient Warriors. You can tell if a Temple Guard is in the Swamp or the Quicksand Bog, you can see a little of their headdress sticking up & a different in the patern of the pit stuff. I might get scared a little bit in the Dark Forest, but you can tell when the arms are flailing like a Purple Parrot on the Steps of Knowledge in Robin Hood & Marian's Silk Ladder haha!

I would be a little freaked out, but not to the point that I would just bolt out of the temple like the kid at the end of Henry VIII's Great Seal.

Hey guys, what did you think were the Best Temple Guard Scares?? I really thought that Nick from Henry VIII's Great Seal and the frontrunner from Ponce de Leon and the Lost Fountain of Youth were scared the best.
Title: Temple Guards
Post by: nicklegends on July 15, 2006, 06:34:23 PM
Henry VIII's great seal had two of the best. No other temple run sticks out in my head in regard to the guards than that one.

I'm extremely fond of the temple gaurd grabbing in "The Discarded Seal of Ivan the Terrible". You know which one i'm talking about. She's in the Room of the Ancient Warriors. She's so close... there's 16 seconds left on the clock... then she gets grabbed through the wall and we all let out a huge disappointed breath. Not only is that the coolest Room of the Ancient Warriors grab (the temple gaurd had PERFECT timing on that one), but Elisa also had a good reaction and this temple gaurd is definitely the reason that she didn't reach the artifact (it woulda been a close grab had she not been caught by the gaurd).

I also like the shot of Elisa during Kirk's post-run commentary, where she's still inside the suit of armor, out of breath.

Yeah, and then in the credits she spins around from behind the suit of armor and gives a big smile. She was a good sport the entire show. Wish that team woulda won. They did absolutely nothing wrong during the temple run and they were both very fast players.... they just got screwed by layout.

All 3 in "Henry VIII's Great Seal"

The Cave of Size - The girl screams & freaks out & runs backwards

The Heart Room - The Temple Guard comes while she's going up the ladder, she starts to go down when the Temple Guard comes out

The Tomb of the Ancient Kings - Do I have to explain?

Not exactly a scare, but today's first episode had a rather hilarious Temple Guard moment.  The second runner gets caught by the third Guard, and not knowing the Run ends when a backrunner has less than a full pendant, she gives him her half pendant and keeps on running for a good 6 seconds before she realizes it's over.  Even Kirk fails to realize the run had ended and just let her go before finally stopping her.

That was a classic moment right there, a few seconds before, Kirk said she passed up the half pendent, and then he says she can move on

i don't know if this was on purpose but doesn't it seem like the room of the ancient warriors and the dark forest are the most popular rooms for temple guards?
Title: Temple Guards
Post by: Mstrgmr on July 21, 2006, 04:39:57 AM
The Tomb of the Headless Kings was probably the most popular, and the center room was pretty popular too, but those two rooms also had a lot of guards in them, unlike the top left room

I did the math, and the Tomb of the Headless Kings was entered 26 times, and of those 26 times there was a guard 17 times, making a ratio of 65.4%. There was another room that would pass it ratio-wise, and that is The Room of Fallen Columns, which was entered 4 times and had a guard appear 3 of those times, for a ratio of 75%. People often overlook that. :wink:

I didn't bother finding out the Dark Forest totals for comparison, because I'd have to flip through 80 of my episode pages again...

i was watching the stolen arm episode today and there was a temple guard in the cave of size that took the first girls pendant. then once she got taken out by another temple guard and the boy went in the cave of size, he looks at the temple guard and u can hear the temple guard saying "go!,go!,go!". it was weird

I'd definately get startled, don't know if I'd run out (think I *might* have vague memories of that one) but would probably jump about a foot depending how they came out.
