* In ''VideoGame/{{Yakuza}} Dead Souls'', Goro Majima gets bit by a zombie. By the next chapter of the game, he is falling ill and his eye is turning red. He goes to a sauna in a last-ditch effort to cure himself. [[spoiler:Ultimately subverted: the zombie that bit him wore dentures and never actually infected him. The sickness and the redness in his eye? Just allergies.]]

Invoked by DeadStarWalking. Sometimes used to describe a state in a game that's UnwinnableByDesign. Not to be confused with DeadCharacterWalking, which describes a video game glitch where the player still has control over a dead character.
