* In ''[[Literature/DanShambleZombiePI Death Warmed Over]]'', Dan and [=McGoo=] interrupt a pair of shambling zombie brawlers, who've continued their fight over a girl even after death. Dan lampshades this trope by marveling at the two teenage zombies' outfits: one, a powder-blue prom tux, the other a Disneyland hoodie. ("Who in the world would want to be buried in a Disneyland hoodie?")

* ''[[VideoGame/StreetPassMiiPlaza Battleground Z (also known as StreetPass Zombies}]]'' is one of the least serious zombie games in existence and is practically made of this trope. The bosses, for instance, consist of Star Quartersmack, who's dressed in full American football gear; Belinda Munch, an opera singer who fights you in her big pink frilly dress; and Bubba and Cletus, a pair of brothers who run a corn farm and wear overalls and straw hats. The Rare Zombies, who only come out under certain conditions, are dressed even more atypically, with characters like the Movie-Loving Zombie, who always wears a shirt depicting his favorite science fiction movie; the Book-Loving Zombie, who has otherwise ordinary clothes but wears a big pair of NerdGlasses; the Helpful Zombie, who's dressed like a superhero; and the Fashionable Zombie, who, depending on the designated gender, either dresses in a bright striped dress or a sharp tuxedo.

Not necessarily exclusive to zombies: vampires, ghosts, biped werewolves, and other human-derived monsters may also be examples of this trope, provided their outfit is unexpected and/or goofy enough to surprise and amuse the audience. Distinguished from OurZombiesAreDifferent in that the Incongruously Dressed Zombie only ''looks'' unique; functionally, it's usually (though not necessarily) your standard-issue NightOfTheLivingMooks drone.
