* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'': One of the side characters, Pisces, is a necromancer, though unlike the usual ones, he isn't terrifying at all. He is rarely taken serious by the other characters, as he tends to speak like a snob, which is rarely a well regarded characteristic. Not that this is the standard for all necromancers. One particualr one, Az'kerash, strikes terror into the people, as he once in the past unleashed his legions of the undead on the continent, killing millions in the process.

* Given the existence of [[DemBones Dry Bones Troopas and Bony Beetles]] (aka Dry Buzzies), [[SuperMarioBros Bowser]] qualifies as this. Given the existence of Dry Bowser, and his subsequent resurrection, [[OverlordJr Bowser Jr.]] takes after him.

A practitioner of a kind of {{Whatevermancy}}, Necromancers are the masters of the art of death. Necromancy, the magic of interrogating the dead, has been practiced since at least Ancient Greece, where it was known as ''Necyomantia'', and probably earlier.

** Kel'thuzad is depicted as THE Necromancer of the setting[[note]]And here on TvTropes - he's the ''[[Pantheon/LifeAndDeathIntermediateGods God]]'' of this trope[[/note]]. He was originally just an extremely powerful mage, but mastered all normal forms of magic so decided to push the boundaries and delve into necromancy. This led to him forming the Cult of the Damned, seeking immortality, and eventually gaining it as a lich. Since we didn't destroy his SoulJar, he's STILL ALIVE, at least according to WordOfGod.

Do ''not'' confuse with [[ILoveTheDead necro-romancer]] (although one ''can'' lead to the other). See also TestedOnHumans and TheNecrocracy. If the necromancer is juxtaposed with a [[HealingHands healing]] or [[GreenThumb nature-controlling]] character, see LifeDeathJuxtaposition.
