[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Zombies in DungeonsAndDragons and {{Pathfinder}} attack living creatures due to an innate hatred for all living things, despite being otherwise mindless. The fact that they tend to bite is because they aren't smart enough to wield weapons, so they just use the most instinctive form of attack available.
** Ghouls and other "hungry dead" ''are'' intelligent, but they crave not only meat, but meat with the life force that is Positive Energy within it. The flesh of undead contains Negative Energy, and is thus unpalatable.

* In Fanfic/ProjectTatterdemalion by Creator/{{Vathara}}, the Hollows, who are TechnicallyLivingZombies, eat each other when there is no other food. They enjoy each others' venom glands.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the playable Undead have cannibalism as a racial ability, and it works on both humanoids and other undead.



* Averted in ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII''. Ghouls will eat any killed units to restore health, whether previously alive or undead. Lack of infighting is due to MindControl.
* Zombies are occasionally seen eating other zombies in the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series. ([=Pre-RE4=] at least.)

* ''[[{{VideoGame/Doom}} Doom 3]]'': Possibly averted at one point when you find a zombie gnawing at a corpse's insides, until it sees you and comes after you... and then the corpse ''also'' gets up and comes after you.

* As an earlier case of the example from ''Doom 3'' above, in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'', at one point, you find a zombified doctor-torturer feasting on the guts of a previously bagged-up cadaver. When he lunges at you, the corpse shuffles off of the table and joins him in attacking.

* ''{{GURPS}}: Infinite Worlds'' has Gotha-zombies, which do eat each other.
* The fan-made ''ZombieTheCoil'' for the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' has two breeds of zombie: Grandes, which can only eat living flesh, and Jackals, which can eat any decayed flesh. This includes other zombies. The two breeds, of course, do ''not'' get along. (Sidenote: this book was created several years before ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''...)

* [[http://www.lomion.de/cmm/zombcann.php Cannibal Zombies]] from the second edition version of ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' are mentioned as sometimes killing and eating their own packmates if they are held at bay until sun-up.

* The name of infamous DeathMetal band Music/CannibalCorpse is an aversion, as [[WordOfGod bassist Alex Webster]] has described their name to journalists on at least one or two occasions as "basically a zombie that eats other zombies". Considering that their infamy in an otherwise relatively underground music scene comes from their (sometimes over-the-top) gory albums and songs with titles such as such as "Mummified in Barbed Wire", "A Skull Full of Maggots", and "Entrails Ripped From a Virgin's Cunt", this is an appropriate title.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/CockneysVsZombies'': while none of the zombies eat each other or fight over food, they evidently ''do'' retain some habits from their previous lives ... which, in the case of two herds of zombified FootballHooligans in opposing team colours, includes beating the crap out of each other. Or at least ''trying'' to do so; as they're too dim to understand their own transformation, they clumsily punch and shove at one another rather than attempt ReemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain, and two of them can be seen repeatedly and uselessly stabbing one another in the belly.

* Likewise in ''DeadIsland'', you may often see a walker chomping down on another downed walker.
* Mostly played straight in ''DyingLight'', although with the justification that the infected know to attack each other by smell. Averted with the Goons and Demolishers, who will kill other zombies while swinging at the player, and with the Bombers, who just destroy everything around them when they explode.
