* You wouldn't think that ''ComicBook/TheTransformers'' would find ways to have zombies, but they have.
** The most memorable case is the City of Fear incident, where a mixed team of Autobots and Decepticons were forced to work together to avoid being massacred by the zombified inhabitants of a long-destroyed city on Cybertron. Notably, it is a nominal ''Autobot'' responsible for the zombie horde!
** In ''Regeneration One'', Megatron raises and lobotomizes most of the Decepticons who had been destroyed by Starscream in the Underbase incident as his army, since he is sick to death of all the ChronicBackstabbingDisorder he had to put up with otherwise. Notably, while all the zombie Decepticons are recognizable, their personalities have been completely wiped and they are little more than shambling corpses with guns.
** In what is possibly the most excessive version of this trope imaginable, the end of the ''Titans Return'' arc features ''zombie city-bots'' being brought back to life to try and overrun the Autobots and Decepticons alike on Cybertron. Again, while they appear unique, none are provided with any personality other than 'undead transforming city.'
