Do ''not'' confuse with [[ILoveTheDead necro-romancer]] (although one ''can'' lead to the other). See also TestedOnHumans and TheNecrocracy.

TheNecrocracy. If the necromancer is juxtaposed with a [[HealingHands healing]] or [[GreenThumb nature-controlling]] character, see LifeDeathJuxtaposition.

* In ''{{Arcanum}}'' there is the Necromantic Black and White, neither of which are inherently good or evil. Necromantic Black fits this trope to a T while Necromantic White resembles the older, now mostly-forgotten aspect of necromancy, giving the user HealingHands and, when mastered, enabling them to bring the fallen BackFromTheDead.

* The second book of ''Literature/TheElenium'' reveals that Tynian and to a lesser degree, Sephrenia are necromancers in the classical sense, though Tynian is better at it due to being stronger, considering that wresting the dead from the beyond is a strenuous activity. A major portion of their quest required summoning the spirits of those who fought in the war five hundred years ago to ask them where the Bhelliom is. This also backfires on them when Tynian accidently raises [[EldritchAbomination something that they didn't intend.]]

** ''VideoGame/MegaManX8'''s Metal Shark Player was skilled at analyzing and controlling DNA. Eventually, Player's investigation led him to experiment in the recreation of [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Reploids]] using the DNA of [[DeadlyEuphemism retired]] Mavericks. As "DNA Resurrection" was deemed illegal by the government, he was hunted down and destroyed. Later, Gate revived him as part of his team and sent him to oversee the recycling plant where Player used to work. Gameplay wise, Player is able to summon indestructible clones of past bosses ([[VideoGame/MegaManX Sting Chameleon]], [[VideoGame/MegaManX2 Magna Centipede]] and [[VideoGame/MegaManX3 Blast Hornet]]) to attack X/Zero.

-->''But folk who have tasted of death are only partly alive. In the dark corners of their souls and minds, death still lurks unconquered. By night the people of Dagon moved and loved, hated and feasted, and remembered the fall of Dagon and their own slaughter only as a dim dream; they moved in an enchanted mist of illusion, feeling the strangeness of their existence but not inquiring the reasons therefor. With the coming of day, they sank into deep sleep, to be roused again only by the coming of night, which is akin to death.''
