A new piece of fan art perfectly memes Khonshu’s hypocrisy and hilarious lack of tact while accusing Arthur Harrow in episode 3 of Moon Knight.
A new piece of Moon Knight fan art calls out episode 3’s silliest moment, in which Khonshu fails to convince his fellow gods of Arthur Harrow’s malicious intent. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has already introduced many deities, from the Asgardians to the Eternals. With Marvel Studios’ latest live-action series on Disney+, the MCU has brought in a new roster of Egyptian deities such as the menacing, and often silly Khonshu (voiced by F. Murray Abraham).
Moon Knight follows Oscar Isaac as a man living with dissociative identity disorder (DID). At the beginning of the series, audiences are introduced to two of his alters, the “gift shopist” Steven Grant and Marc Spector—a mercenary who serves as Khonshu’s avatar. The series also stars Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, a cult leader (and former Khonshu avatar) determined to release the imprisoned Egyptian goddess Ammit and purge the world of evil by judging humans preemptively. In episode 3, “The Friendly Type,” Khonshu requests an audience with five other members of the Egyptian Ennead, warning them about Harrow’s nefarious motives. Unfortunately, Khonshu makes a less-than-convincing argument while Harrow gaslights the moon god and his avatar.
Digital artist Rachel Hoo on Instagram recently shared some fan art calling out Khonshu for his debate skills in episode 3 of Moon Knight. The piece sees Khonshu tell Marc how their “case against Harrow must be indisputable” beforeing accusations without presenting any evidence shout. Check it out below:

In many ways, Khonshu has proven himself an impulsive, “shoot first, ask questions later” kind of god. With the god appearing unhinged, Harrow was able to spin the situation and accuse Khonshu of taking advantage of Marc and Steven’s DID. At the end of episode 3, after Marc/Steven and Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) find a map of constellations, Khonshu spins back the night sky to the time of the map’s creation to reveal the location of Ammit’s tomb. This desperate act leads the gods to imprison Khonshu in a small statue as punishment for interfering with the natural order/revealing his powers to humanity.
Fans likely haven’t seen the last of Khonshu in Moon Knight. With only two episodes left, Marc, Steven, and Layla will need Khonshu’s powers to combat Harrow and Ammit. First, the series needs to explain Marc/Steven’s current predicament; episode 4, “The Tomb,” finds the pair in a mental institution after being shot by Harrow, throwing their reality and everything else into question. Regardless of how that hippopotamus god comes into play, Moon Knight is already a hit with critics and audiences alike with an 86% audience critics score, a 94% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is thanks in large part to Isaac’s multi-faceted portrayal of multiple personalities, including—albeit briefly—a loud-mouthed god as depicted in the comedic moment above.
