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, and ArmyOfTheDead, when ''the heroes''' fallen allies rise to aid them as TheCavalry. Undead mooks are a staple of video games, TabletopGames, and live-action alike.

* In ''[[PrydainChronicles The Black Cauldron]]'', the cauldron of the title reanimates corpses, and the enemy is using it for an inexhaustible supply of soldiers.

* The Hell chapters of ''VideoGame/TheDarkness'' are filled with zombified souls of soldiers consumed by the titular quasi-demonic entity during WorldWarOne. Particularly horrible as the Brits cannot die no matter how badly their bodies are mutilated. Fortunately, the {{Narm}} of an arm-less, leg-less face-less moper in the village hospital cheers things up a bit. ...what?

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Harry Dresden once had to deal with ''six'' necromancers coming to town at once. While only one (Grevane) made really copious use of zombies against Harry, since Dresdenverse zombies are [[OurZombiesAreDifferent more like]] TheTerminator than anything, they were more than sufficient.

[[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]]

* ''{{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.]]
