Mustafa

"I'm still alive. Only, I'm very badly burned." -Mustafa

Mustafa (Will Ferrell) is an Arab-Turkish henchman of Dr. Evil, appearing in the first and second movies. He is apparently Dr. Evil's weapons designer as he took credit for constructing the cryogenic chamber which was used to freeze Dr. Evil and the trap fire pit Which was used to kill a few of Dr. Evil's henchmen, including Mustafa himself (technically) .

Due to a quirk in his character, he gets irritated when asked three times in a row, quickly forcing himself to responding to a question even during interrogation. Recognizable by his red fez.

Biography[]

Mustafa knew Austin Powers in the past, however, Austin could only identify him by his fez. Because of the latter films' use of time travel, he has the distinction of dying twice. Chronologically, he is first killed in the 1960s by Mini-Me. He attacks Austin and Felicity, he is subdued and held at gunpoint for information. It is at this point we discover that he is emotionally compelled to answer a question after it is asked three times. However, when it appears he will comply, Felicity releases his neck, a fatal mistake. He is then shot with a dart by Mini-Me (disguised as a baby) and falls from the cliff. Austin and Felicity have not learned enough information to make a difference. He calls for help, crying that both of his legs are broken.

In the first film, which was his first appearance but second chronological death, Mustafa is dropped down into a pit of fire by Dr. Evil after his unfreezing process caused Mr. Bigglesworth to lose all his fur. He survives, and an unknown henchman enters the room and kills him by shooting him twice (the first proving ineffective).

In both incarnations, he falls from a great height in a seemingly fatal manner (like getting burned), only to survive, call for help, and apparently die off-screen.
