* The Necromancer role in ''VideoGame/TownOfSalem'' is a failed [[SalemIsWitchCountry Coven-aligned]] Retributionist who can choose to zombify a dead player at night and use their ability on another player. They can only do this once per corpse however, as the bodies rot after reviving them.

* In the ''Literature/TheLaundryFiles'' novels by CharlesStross, creating zombies is relatively simple: take a relatively fresh corpse, summon up a Feeder in the Night, and have it inhabit the corpse's nervous system. (Other varieties can inhabit skeletonized corpses, feeding on [[OurSoulsAreDifferent the informational echoes of the deceased inhabitant's mind.]]) Since the Feeders aren't very intelligent and can be bound and programmed, the eponymous budget-conscious occult intelligence agency uses the [[InsistentTerminology 'Residual Human Resources']] in a variety of roles: nightwatchmen, door guards, shelf-stackers...

* Liches in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can raise the recently slain as increasingly-powerful undead minions. If there aren't recently dead corpses at hand, it's possible to bribe the spirits that enforce NoBodyLeftBehind in the Nexus to deliver bodies to the Lich instead.

*** The [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade original]] [[TheMafia Giovanni]] could make zombies as well (one sidequest in ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has you stealing an instruction manual), and...the less said about the [[BodyHorror Tzimisce]] the better.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'', the fungus creature [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/mushtomb.htm Mushtomb]] has this power, spreading its slimy spores on dead tissue to animate it to follow its every whim. Fortunately [[DarkIsNotEvil its whims are mostly to be left alone and in quiet.]]

* A power of the Graveyard Hag, a goddess in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse''. She [[spoiler:temporarily gives the power to Daine]] in ''Literature/TheImmortals'' to deal with Emperor Ozorne.

* A power of the Graveyard Hag, a goddess in the ''Literature/TortallUniverse''. She [[spoiler:temporarily gives the power to Daine]] in ''Literature/TheImmortals'' to deal with Emperor Ozorne. This is an unusual example because [[spoiler: Daine uses it to resurrect the emperor's collection of extinct large animals, including dinosaurs, rather than humans. The result is the rather spectacular destruction of the emperor's beautiful palace in one night.]]
