Chief Guard is one of many guards in the depths of the mines. However, this brutal guard oversaw the other slave drivers, and was immensely strong. He appears in 7199 The Temple of Doom alongside the Thuggee Guard.


When Indiana Jones, Short Round, and Willie Scott begin their escape from the Temple of Doom, this guard was the only real threat to stand in Indy's way. The guard eventually dies during a fight with Indy atop a rock crusher with a conveyor belt.

In the Video Game[]

The Chief Thuggee Guard, is referred to as the Thuggee Slave Driver, was an enemy and later playable character in LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. In the Nintendo DS version of LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, he has a whip just like Indiana Jones'. Also (on the DS version of LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures) he is crushed not by a round rock crusher but a rock crusher that crushes things by mashing them. You do not see a cutscene that shows his death.


  • The 7199 The Temple of Doom box cover shows the Thuggee Chief in a Mining Cart, even though in the movie he was killed before the mining cart scene.
  • He has Indiana Jone's face in the video games.
  • In the film he was portrayed by the late actor Pat Roach, who also portrayed Airplane Mechanic in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
