* 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]].

* ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'', being a game based off of Dungeons and Dragons(more specifically, it's arcade games), features the Warlock boss who will even say "Animate Dead" when summoning zombies. The Sorcerous can also learn a skill that allows her to turn any of the random bone piles of dead characters into skeleton allies. Of course, you have to be quick around CPU Sorceresses if you want to recruit more allies, they'll only wait a few seconds to create skeletons.

* The magic system in ''{{Warbreaker}}'' allows for the animation of ''anything'' made from organic material. Animated dead (called Lifeless) are particularly useful, however -- ordinary Awakened objects can just be given one command, which they will then fulfill mindlessly, whereas Lifeless can be "programmed" to perform more complex tasks.

* In ''TheWitchWatch'' re-animation can be used to bring back sentient abominations but it's tricky and it can be easier just to raise your own army of feral abominations. Including undead dogs.
