*''VideoGame/FarCry3'' had a glitch where certain molotov throwing {Mooks} get stuck in their ready idle stance (hopping from one foot to the other, waving their arms) instead of dying. They can't be interacted with, and can't be shot or stabbed or blown up.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', by a certain glitch in stamina mode, both Wario and Bowser can become "zombies" where they can still be controlled and beat other players at 0 HP. Bowser could still win, but Wario cannot win at all after using this glitch.

** There's a method to fly as a zombie involving having your death blow knock you into a cannon. You can launch out of the cannon and won't die unless you touch the ground. If you're wearing the Wing Cap, you can even fly around as a zombie!
** Hurt yourself to the point where fall damage can kill you, then equip the Wing Cap. A correctly timed three-jump combo will make you fly, so if you jump once, then twice off a cliff and trigger the last jump just as you land, you will take lethal damage but still begin flying. Unfortunately the impact "flattens" Mario and thus you can't jump more than a few feet up. Touching the ground at all causes Mario to die, which will happen eventually when the Wing Cap timer runs out. Interestingly enough, once you are "dead" coins and hearts will no longer heal you, so you absolutely cannot save yourself.

* In ''VideoGame/MarioKart DS'' battle mode, a dead (read: out of the contest) driver can still drive around the battlefield, laying boxes, albeit invisible and intangible.
** The earlier ''Mario Kart 64'' likewise allowed players that were eliminated to continue driving about as a bomb on wheels, at which point they could try to ram into one of the remaining players to try and eliminate them as well.
** Likewise in most of the newer ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' games, there's usually an option to allow defeated players to harass the living ones by riding around the edge of the stage in a hovering vehicle and throwing bombs at them. In some of the games, managing to directly kill one of the players this way could also revive you and let you resume playing normally, hopefully not getting killed in turn by the same player who you just offed.

* Literally in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''; since the characters walk [[AllInaRow one after another]], they are still able to walk around, but their sprite looks excessively tired.
** In its predecessor, ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', dead characters were actually ghosts following the leader of your party.

* The original QWTF ''Team Fortress'' had a bug where a spy could feign death, and then start moving around as an apparent sliding corpse on the ground.
** And in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', if your character's corpse is still there after you respawn, which tends to happen on instant respawn servers, it can produce weird effects. If your character [[HollerButton talks]], so does their corpse. ''C'mere, cupcake...''
** Inverted by anything that produces a "Statue" from the corpse after a kill in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' (The Saxxy, Golden Wrench, Golden Frying Pan, or Spycicle), where the statue will not only talk, but also sometimes be subjected to ragdoll physics. A patch sort of solved the problem, but they are still subjected to very, very minor physics when they collapse over.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has a couple of bugs that allow you to walk around with an all-dead (or all-zombie) party. Of course, it's Game Over if you enter a fight, but hey.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has a similar glitch with Cloud's flashback sequence. Sephiroth's AI is supposed to revive Cloud should he fall in battle but sometimes Sephiroth will just whale on enemies instead, leaving Cloud down. This becomes extremely funny when Sephiroth separates from Cloud's party, leaving Cloud to walk around town by himself while his HP is at 0. Unlike the above example, there's no more random encounters once Sephiroth leaves due to plot reasons, so there's no risk of a Game Over.
*** ''Final Fantasy VII'' actually has a system in place in early-game that heals and revives the party after plot points and boss fights. If one does a game where Cloud is at 0 hp when you reach Cosmo canyon, this is the first time in regular gameplay when you are not healed after a boss. This leads to a party of Cloud alone dead in the menu when checked when his party splits up at Cosmo Canyon when first visited when the buggy breaks down. If Cloud was just dead by chance, this can be particularly frustrating if you walk outside to sample the enemies nearby or gain a quick level.
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'': By a glitch, you could walk [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Wa5ytBcsOE Zombie Link in a dim world]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jQHKMe6fiY&feature=watch_response A different method]] allows Zombie Link to walk around in regular lighting, but nothing can be done anyway, everything is frozen, and many features are disabled.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' has a similar Zombie Link glitch where the player must rapidly press the A and B buttons alternately as soon as Link loses all his health, but before the death animation plays. This glitch is called "zombie hovering": Link will repeatedly start the jump slash animation, slowly rising into the air in the direction he's facing. The glitch allows one to travel anywhere within a room, but if Link touches the floor, he will immediately die.

** The game does forget where you died if you use a boat or a zeppelin to switch continents, allowing you to respawn at the new continent. Usually this is used to gain access to the Blood Elf or Draenei starting zones' tameable wildlife before the character is strong enough to get there normally.

* The 1997 adventure game adaptation of ''VideoGame/BladeRunner'' has a glitch of this nature involving a character who can possibly be a Replicant. Ending paths that have the player joining up with Clovis and his band of Replicants are supposed to have all the surviving (randomized) Replicants meet up on the moonbus he and his group arrived on. The glitch comes in when one possible Replicant character, Dektora, is allowed to leave at an earlier point in the game, but then shot in the back before she actually gets out the door. She still shows up at the ending, but as a corpse. Nevertheless, except for not talking she'll still be able to do everything she's supposed to do at that point in the game - such as, for instance, coming back to life to shoot you dead if you attempt to pull your gun on Clovis.

** The game was prone to this in earlier builds which were much buggier. The game could occasionally forget that someone was dead and bring them pack to life upon reloading a save. If you had hacked or exploded someones limbs or head off, the game would creepily reassemble them from all the gibs and severed parts. The resulting abomination would walk around and talk as if nothing was wrong.
** Some respawning NPC can also coexist with their corpse or, more frequently the pile of ash or plasma that was there past self. When you try to loot the glitched corpse or ash pile, the living version will respond to you as if you just tried to talk to them. The most prominent place this occurs is the guards outside camp McCarren, who are already likely to die multiple times thanks to the Fiends that spawn near them. These [=NPCs=], and all other that trigger this glitch, are counted as unique, and thus have saved facial structures and load outs, but use the same code as generic re spawning [=NPCs=]. This results in creating another instance of that NPC when they respawn, without necessarily removing the old instance (their corpse) in the process. In the game's eyes, the corpse and the person are the same thing.
** Both this game and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' occasionally have dead-on-arrival NPC's spawn alive, with no dialogue options. On other occasions, enemies killed offscreen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LASKohDRQKU will have their corpse continue to animate in some fashion as if they're alive]] once you catch up to them.

** The original ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' allowed a similar glitch by typing "walk" (the code for disabling flying or noclip) into the console while in spectator mode after dying, where the player would be able to move around as if they're still alive. It's less useful, however, as they can't pick up weapons and any damage puts them back down until they actually respawn or type in the code again.
