* In ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury,'' the grunts are Rinshi, based on {{Chinese Vampire}}s and created from the dust of dead warriors. When one is upgraded to MonsterOfTheWeek, it becomes a Rinshi Beast. Technically, the bad guys of that season are [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot kung-fu zombie beast-men]]! Due to either NeverSayDie or wanting to keep the martial arts theme at the forefront, the undead thing doesn't come up terribly often, though.

In ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury,'' the second episode of ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' and its adaptation ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', the BigBad sends out a skeleton themed MonsterOfTheWeek, who uses a unique set of skeleton themed mooks.

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

* 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]]
