* GenreSavvy: The Zombie Walk participants have an extensive knowledge of zombies, and the geeks at the New York Comic-Con are also quite well versed in zombie lore. Also, one of the endings sees you holing up in a bookshop which is doing a promotion on zombie books; you decide to start with ''TheZombieSurvivalGuide''.

* DeadlyLunge: The zombies perform the sprint variation - they shamble around until they see food, at which point they charge.

* DeadlyLunge: The zombies perform the sprint variation - -- they shamble around until they see food, at which point they charge.



* TheEnd: All but one of the endings are identified as "An End." Just one, on the very last page, is called "The End", though it's not one of the happier ones.



* PretendWereDead: The Zombie Walk participants use their incredibly realistic makeup, extensive knowledge of zombies, and guts from a slaughterhouse to pass themselves off as zombies (you stay in the middle of the group so as not to draw attention). The zombies, while mostly accepting of you, are somewhat suspicious, with one investigating closely...until someone snaps and tries to run, triggering a mass panic/feeding frenzy. The paint also doesn't help your life expectancy when trigger-happy soldiers are around.
* RaisingTheSteaks: [[spoiler:One ending has you and Yakuma encounter - and subsequently be killed by - zombie lions.]]

* WhatTheHellPlayer: Happens multiple times - humorously, if you [[spoiler:tell Kim to go home]] - the book tells you to throw it out the window because you don't deserve it. Less amusingly, it calls you a loser and an asshole if [[spoiler:you let the elementary school kids in the trailer die]].
