* ''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.

* The ''Film/TheReturnOfTheLivingDead'' series riffs off the Romero series, but changes the zombies to make them much more dangerous. Decapitating the zombies will not stop them, and this change is {{lampshade}}d by one character, who cries, "You mean the movie lied?" Zombies maintain a roughly human-level intelligence, and can run and speak provided they still have the right parts, enabling them to taunt and bully their victims, as well as lure them to their doom by impersonating normal humans. They are driven to feed on human brains because it temporarily eases the pain of being dead. A gas called Trioxin is the source of the plague.
