Flesh-Eating Zombies are the type usually found in a ZombieApocalypse. They consume the skin, [[BrainFood brains]], or various other organs of the living, and sometimes [[TheVirus infect survivors, who become zombies themselves]] -- which makes them a lot like a [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghoul]], really. Can also be merged with a VoodooZombie or PlagueZombie.

PlagueZombie. They [[OlderThanTheyThink show a lot of]] the characteristics of the actual European folkloric vampire, before Gothic novelists [[VampiresAreSexGods made them sexier and cleverer]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Zombo}}'': These are a plague on the worst of the Death Worlds, as they also [[TheVirus spread rapidly]]. The answer to this threat is the titular Zombo, who is a result of combining zombie and human DNA to create an obedient super soldier. He's friendly enough when he's not eating you.

* ''TheMiddleman'' has perhaps a unique example of the Flesh Eating variety, selecting a very unusual type of flesh to eat. Nowhere else will the zombies cry not "Braiiiiins", but instead "troooooout".

* Kyurem from Franchise/{{Pokemon}} is a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot frozen dragon from space]] whose appearance and mannerisms are based off of the classic flesh-eating zombie. It's even explicitly stated to have a taste for human flesh. Though, unlike other examples, its bite cannot turn you into a zombie.

* An early example is in the ''Literature/HerbertWestReanimator'' by Creator/HPLovecraft. While the story predates the usage of the term zombie, several of the corpses that are reanimated (Doctor Halsey in ''The Plague-Daemon'' and the boxer in ''Six Shots by Moonlight'') do kill and eat other people.

* Animates in ''UnhallowedMetropolis'' fall under this. They have elements of the PlagueZombie, as their bite is usually fatal and death from a bite is guaranteed to result in reanimation... but any corpse has a chance to reanimate, with the odds varying according to the surrounding environment.

* Zigzagged in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Zombies are usually created by TheNecromancer rather than a plague, but later editions included rules for portraying zombies that were "self-perpetuating". Zombies also usually simply try to kill anything that is around them because they hate life, but again rules for supporting flesh-eaters exist. In particular, ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' provides ample support for it, having featured Cannibal Zombies (which are, literally, zombies built by way of this depiction) in 2nd edition, and having the 3rd edition {{sourcebook}} "Van Richten's Guide to the Walking Dead", which spells out the exact combination of salient powers and traits needed to build a Flesh Eating Zombie.
