** ''VideoGames/DeadIslandRiptide'' Adds the Grenadier, an infected scientist that throws exploding body parts at you, the Screamer, a fast zombie with a special scream that stuns you, and the Wrestler, a massive zombie with powerful smash attacks. It also goes FromBadToWorse with a number of ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}''-style KingMook zombie bosses with enhanced health and regenerating health. Imagine a GenreSavvy zombie fan who turned himself into a Butcher because he thinks it will save the world, or drug trafficker who had become one of the Infected. They are tougher, faster, deal more damage and that particular zombie's hat is turned UpToEleven and their weaknesses are turned into strengths.

* ''Franchise/StarCraft'' franchise's infested terrans. In the [[VideoGame/StarcraftI first game]], they explode. The ones in ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' have a ranged attack as opposed to the standard Infested Colonists claws, and Abberations (which fit into the Brute subtype,) are massive, centauroid infested terrans with huge zits all over them. Due to the Zerg Healing Factor, all three also count as Regenerators. ''[=StarCraft=] Adventures'' by ''TabletopGame/{{Alternity}}'' has mutates, which fit into Person Zombies and Test Subject zombies.

* A large chunk of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' consists of running into new, more powerful, and increasingly hideous Necromorphs, which are ''weird'' zombies (being corpses reanimated by a hive-minded alien microorganism that mutates them in all kinds of unpleasant ways) but still fit under the archetype. The series contains most of the examples at the top, with the smart zombies being ones who were infected by eating Necromorph flesh out of desperation, the Hunter boss being an experimental zombie and regenerator at once, and brutes, stalkers, spitters, bombs and the like popping up at intervals.

* The MonsterOfTheWeek species of ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', the Orphnochs, are this combined with RevenantZombie, since turning into one just gives them a new transformation with powers without any loss of personality, [[DysfunctionJunction psychological problems aside]].

* The MonsterOfTheWeek species of ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'', the Orphnochs, are this combined with RevenantZombie, since turning into one just gives them a new transformation that they can switch back to human form from with powers without any loss of sapience or even personality, [[DysfunctionJunction psychological problems aside]]. Despite originating as humans, they somehow count as Animal Zombie-types as nearly all of them have motifs and abilities akin to their animal forms. Some, like Yuji Kiba, the Horse Orphnoch, can mutate their bodies into having more animal-like traits, in Kiba's case, gaining a centaur form.

* '''Screamers''' - Their specialization is to call out to any other zombies around, usually via screaming or screeching. They are usually less physically threatening than other zombies, having disabilities like the lack of arms or bound ones (usually a straitjacket), thus forcing them to rely on their calls to defend themselves.

Their screams can occasionally [[MakeMeWannaShout cause damage]].



** '''''"Help Me"'' Zombies''' - Zombies that lure survivors by mimicking a survivor calling for help, usually by crying or by literally saying "help me" over and over again, appealing to compassion to stage an ambush.

* In ''VideoGame/DeadIsland'', you encounter some special zombies that are tougher than the average ones, or take some different tactics to defeat, such as Thugs (slow but towering zombies strong enough to send you flying with one punch), Floaters (bloated zombies puking a flammable vomit), Suiciders (kamikaze zombies that explode if you kill them or approach them), and Butchers (HP and strength of a Thug, but capable of running and dodging attacks).

** '''Boomers[=/=]Bloaters''' - A subcategory of vomit zombies. These guys are almost always bloated. Instead of using their vomit as as projectile (though they still might within limits), they use their gastric juices to build up pressure, making them (un)living water (acid?) balloons that explode when they take enough damage (sometimes even exploding on contact or close proximity), covering anyone nearby with acid or some other hideous liquid. These will ''definitely'' burst when destroyed. Keep your distance.

* ''Manga/IAmAHero'' features pretty much all of these at some point or another. There are fast infant zombies, a pregnant woman later dragged along by her infant after her death, fast "combat-type" zombies, [[spoiler:FleshGolem style brutes, smart zombies that have some of their sanity kept intact to achieve a goal, and Human Zombies who have human level intelligence coupled with super strength and speed. Enormous Flesh Golems called Hives begin to form later, and the series has at least one Horde Master, although she is short-lived]].

** Boomers are, well, Boomers.

to:

** Boomers are, well, Boomers. Their vomit inflicts a rather severe InterfaceScrew which severely hampers vision until it wears off, and the smell attracts a huge swarm of common infected. In the second game, you can use this to your advantage with Bile Bombs, which can be used to [[SetAMookToKillAMook trick zombies into fighting each other]].
