Kong: The Animated Series
The Sleeping City
After being sealed in The Sleeping City, Set was trapped as a statue for thousands of years. However, with his parting words, Set vowed to grant whomever revived him with eternal life. After receiving a tip from Ramone De La Porta, Dr. Nagir, an Egyptologist, and his team discovered the Sleeping City, and De La Porta forced him to lead him inside to revive Set and gain eternal life. After they reached the statue of Set, De La Porta loaded a Primal Stone into a cavity on Set's chair, which restored him to life. De La Porta then reminded Set of his promise, and Set obliged to giving his rescuer eternal life by turning him into a statue. On noticing more humans in his presence, Set released his servants, mummified dog-men not unlike himself, on the interlopers after they fired upon him. They fled, but De La Porta's henchmen shot at them until Kong arrived and smacked the hellhounds back into Set, who absorbed them into his body. Set then began chanting in order to raise the city to surface level, which would awaken his fellow gods with whom he would destroy the world. Kong then attacked Set, but Set simply knocked him back. At that point, Kong was advised to use the whip of Osiris, to capitalize on the rivalry between Set and Osiris. At the touch of his enemy's weapon Set turned into a statue and crumbled to dust.
