    I don't know about your dating criteria, but someone who's obsessed with death and only comes around when you're dead or dying to keep beasts away from your decaying body - if he lets it decay at all and doesn't help taking care that it doesn't - is not a "nice guy".
    Unless your definition of "nice guy" is "not quite the mass-murdering demon creature he's sometimes vaguely implied to be".

    Besides, in UC2 Anubis isn't actually the god Anubis but just a member of the Nakhti race and named after the god. Him running around with a metal Jackal-head helmet is part of his futuristic wrestling persona.
    In The Mummy he is only present in form of a statue, which has every right to be where it is, considering it's "the city of the dead", and he swoops in as a blurry ghost on a chariot for a couple of seconds near the end... In The Mummy Returns he is only mentioned and the antagonist in the Stargate movie is Ra. As Stargate's whole gimmick used to be that ancient egyptian gods are actually powerful aliens it's not surprise that eventually they'd have an Anubis on the show.
    I just don't see much of a trend or obsession with Anubis here. Not even in your examples, let alone in "movies/games" as such.

    They have a hard-on for death in general, in one way or another, and anubis is just one moderately interesting "diferent-take" on it.

    "Fear the Ear" is probably the key. Anubis looks distinctive and exotic.
