** In the [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins first]] [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening two]] [[VideoGame/DragonAgeII games]], necromancy is usually treated as the foulest aspect of BloodMagic, which is already feared and reviled: even [=PC=] blood mages (such as Merrill) shy away from raising the dead. The second game features a necromancer ''[[SerialKiller serial killer]]'' who turns out to be [[spoiler: assembling the likeness of his dead wife out of his victims.]]

* Necromancy in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is usually the domain of the [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]], who turns the battlefield dead of the Nexus into its army of ghouls, skeletons and wights. However, necromancy is morally neutral in the Nexus, not evil, and the Lich is the dedicated summoner of the free-will-defending [[HumansAreSpecial Transcended]] alignment. Both good and evil forces can be found fighting alongside the hordes of one or more Liches.

* In ''Videogame/DarkestDungeon'', the Necromancers are bosses inhabiting the Ruins. They were a group of scholars in the employ of the Ancestor who he invited so he could learn the secrets of necromancy. Once he'd learned everything they knew, he killed them in their sleep and then practiced his newfound knowledge on their bodies. They were brought back as undead horrors but with all their knowledge intact, and then began to infest the Ruins of the old Estate, raising hordes of undead from the Estate's soldiers, servants, and nobility.

* Necromancy is an aspect of BlackMagic in ''{{Mithgar}}'', and mostly follows the more traditional sort, as a necromancer's primary abilities are used in summoning and compelling dead spirits, usually to force information out of them. One necromancer, Baron Stoke (also one of the series' viler villains), ''did'' learn to create a zombie army, but died before he could use it or pass the knowledge on.

* ''Literature/MoDaoZuShi'' is a rare Chinese example featuring the main character Wei Wuxian having the ability to raise and control corpses by playing his [[MagicMusic flute]]. He is also able to create sentient zombies (albeit accidentally) to do his bidding i.e. his "Ghost General" Wen Ning. Because of this, he is often touted as the "Founder of Diabolism".

* ''Film/{{Mythica}}:'' Marek's magic is described as necromancy, but is powered by sucking the life energy from the living, not by dealing with the dead. She is the heroine.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Haazheel Thorn has control over the living dead, raising them as part of his army. He can also gift his servants with a [[BackFromTheDead straightforward resurrection]] if they've fallen in battle, but you better damn hope he considers you useful enough to bother.
