While trying to get a medallion from Marion Ravenwood in 1936, a Mongolian ended up fighting Indiana Jones in The Raven tavern. He hid behind the bar and managed to notice his fellow goon, the Giant Sherpa, accost Indy. This event distracted him from seeing Marion, who knocked him out with a log to the head.
As he came to his senses, Indy had just defeated the Giant Sherpa and Toht had fled the scene. The henchman aimed his gun at Indy unaware that Marion was pointing a gun on him. The Mongolian's life was ended with one shot to the back. His body was later abandoned inside the burning bar while Jones and Ravenwood escaped like Toht.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the first and third drafts of the film's script, written by Lawrence Kasdan, the Mean Mongolian was to be knocked out by Marion Ravenwood with an axe. He would later recover and try to shoot Jones with a Mauser and subsequently be shot by Ravenwood with a Baretta. Although this was cut from the finished film, in the Raiders novelization by Campbell Black, a similar scene occurs in which Marion hits him in the head with an axe handle and knocks the Mongolian out.
With the Giant Sherpa absent from Marvel Comics' Raiders adaptation, the Mean Mongolian fulfills his role from the film, fighting Jones then cooperating with him to shoot the Second Nazi. When the pair resume fighting each other, Marion knocks the Mongolian out with a log and he is abandoned in the burning bar.
