[[TheUndead Undead]] mooks are the entire point of the ZombieApocalypse. May be {{zombie|Apocalypse}}s, [[DemBones skeletons]], or even {{mumm|y}}ies. An extreme form of FacelessGoons, in that while it's pretty hard to identify with someone with no face, it's [[UncannyValley basically impossible]] to sympathize with a corpse. [[note]]Well, a mindless corpse at least. Free-willed undead, while they can be evil, can also be good, in which case they come off as mostly tragic, if a bit creepy.[[/note]]

If you really want to find these guys, look in the designated BigBoosHaunt, or any other UnholyGround. RaisingTheSteaks is sometimes a SubTrope of this. Compare/contrast UndeadLaborers, who are used for constructive work rather than fighting. They are a staple of video games, TabletopGames, and live-action alike.

* ''{{VideoGame/Metroid}}'' sports a few undead. The first undead appear in ''Super Metroid'''s sunken ship area: the boss, Phantoon, is apparently a ghost, and spectral clumps of skulls fade in throughout the level. ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' features Chozo Ghosts. And ''Metroid Fusion'' and ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2'' contain human corpses reanimated by the X and the Ing, respectively.

* In the SuperFriends, the LegionOfDoom seeks out a witch who can summon an EldritchAbomination that grants the Legion the ability to summon unstoppable (seemingly) from the Swamp around them under their control. They turn back the Super Friends easily. Then the Legion, predictably infused with ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, greedily decides to capture and drain the entity. It does not go well and factors into one of their more humiliating defeats.

** ''Serious Sam 2'' also has the flying kleers (which are flying kleer skeletons armed with {{Fireball}} launchers), and the zombie stockbrokers and zombie soldiers, which are more or less equal to human soldiers, and armed with shotguns and machine guns respectively. [[DemonicSpiders Their high damage hitscan weapons, decent health, and good accuracy make them quite frustrating in large numbers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedWith in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' with the Hallendren rebels, whose vast army of Lifeless soldiers is one of the main reasons why the Kingdom of Idris fears and despises them. But as the story progresses, it soon becomes clear that the Hallendren are not the BigBad of the book, and in fact much of the story is about the heroes trying to save them from the real BigBad.

* ''MetalSlug 3'' has quite a bit of these: You have to deal with zombified civilians and soldiers in mission 3, and later on you fight off legions of zombified clones of your previous player character while trying to escape from an exploding spaceship. You can even become a zombie and vomit acidic blood that can take out damn near anything in one shot.
