* 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.]]

* The titular Black Cauldron from the second book of the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' (and the [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron Disney movie]]) was an ArtifactOfDoom that could do this. Dipping corpses into the cauldron turned them into unstoppable undead soldiers.

* Inferi in ''Literature/HarryPotter''.

to:

* Inferi in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. Dumbledore mentions in his notes on Beedle the Bard that Necromancy is "a branch of magic that has never worked". Whilst it is possible to create Inferi, these are mindless creatures with no soul or intelligence, despite possessing human corpses and hence are not truly "raised" persons. Therefore, Necromancy does not work in this respect and it is indeed known to be impossible to truly resurrect the dead.

* In ''[[Literature/TheBible Book of Ezekiel]]'', {{God}} commands his prophet Ezekiel to resurrect [[CavalryOfTheDead a whole army of skeletons]], which were the people of Israel, to reclaim their homes. Unlike any [[DemBones typical skeletal army]], they were [[MassResurrection fully resurrected]] into living beings [[note]]and by modern day RPGMechanicsVerse, it's ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons True Resurrection]]'', rather this trope[[/note]]. This was done [[OlderThanFeudalism before video game necromancy was a thing]].
