* 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 basic "Animate Dead" spell creates skeletons and zombies. The next spell on that list is "Create Undead", which outputs ghouls, ghasts [[note]]advanced ghouls[[/note]], mummies, and mohrgs [[note]]worms that coil in skeletons and control them by contorting around the bones, they look like animated intestines with clawed mandibles.[[/note]] Then you get Create Greater Undead, which gives you shadows, wraiths, spectres [[note]]all varied ghosts[[/note]], and devourers. Those are the core spells, [[AllThereInTheManual others]] allow you to awaken entire battlefields [[note]]Plague of Undead [[/note]], designate one undead to lead others [[note]]Undead Lieutenant can effectively multiply the amount of undead you control several times over[[/note]]. 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.

* 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...
