* The TropeNamer is ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. The basic "Animate Dead" spell creates skeletons and zombies. The next spell on that list is "Create Undead", which outputs ghouls, ghasts (advanced ghouls), mummies, and mohrgs (worms that coil in skeletons and control them by contorting around the bones, they look like animated intestines with clawed mandibles.) Then you get Create Greater Undead, which gives you shadows, wraiths, spectres (all varied ghosts), and devourers (sort of high-level ghouls). Those are the core spells, [[AllThereInTheManual others]] allow you to awaken entire battlefields (Plague of Undead), designate one undead to lead others (Undead Lieutenant can effectively multiply the amount of undead you control several times over). There's even an EPIC spell that kills an entire army then animates them as undead, although not all of the new undead are under your control.

* A speciality of the Vampire Counts in ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer''. Available to all Lords outside battle, it allows the instantaneous... um, "recruitment" of units anywhere on the map. You can raise low-level zombies and skeletons just about anywhere, but for the really special high-tier units, you'll have to track down old battle sites - the level of the troops who fought (and died) there determines the level of the troops you can raise. Certain Lords can even use it in the middle battle to instantly raise a fresh unit, which is kept from being a game breaker by both the spell's cost and the fact that it's limited to raising cheap zombies (skeletons if it's cast too often), which in the later game are only really useful as cannon fodder to distract the enemy from your better units.

* In the LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero fanfiction,''Fanfic/TheSteepPathAhead'', this is an advanced spell of the Water Element and TheUndead created in this manner can fight just as well as they did when alive. They have to be killed by either the [[ReviveKillsZombie Cure Spell]] or be [[NoBodyLeftBehind vaporized]].
