* ''{{Manga/Overlord}}'': Ainz spares the Lizardmen from extermination and zombification because Cocytus asked him to... and because reanimated Lizardmen corpses aren't particularly better than human corpses.


Added DiffLines:

* The French comic ''{{ComicBook/Zombillenium}}'' has the main protagonist biteen by a werewolf then a vampire to keep him alive. However, they ''keep'' biting him to fully convert him (as they were each a werewolf/vampire short). A vampire werewolf apparently gets the best of both worlds, appearing as a BigRedDevil.

* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): It is revealed that [[spoiler:Shardblades]] are essentially [[spoiler:zombie spren. They were bound to the old Knights Radiant, and when the Knights broke their oaths, the spren were trapped in Blade form. A normal person can bond a Shardblade and give the spren the ability to mimic life enough to be [[SummonToHand summoned or dismissed at will]], but nothing more. When a Knight who still holds their oaths touches a Shardblade, the spren is revived for a moment, [[AndIMustScream and immediately begins screaming in agony]] (though only the Knight and the person bonded to the Blade can hear it)]].
** In ''Literature/{{Oathbringer}}, [[spoiler: we get to see the manifestation of the spren that is Adolin's Shardblade in Shadesmar, the home Realm of the spren, when Adolin, Kaladin, and Shallan are transported there. She looks like she's made of dead vines (a "dead" version of the normal form of her kind of spren) and has eyes that appear to be scratched out like a damaged painting. She mindlessly follows Adolin around unless prevented from doing so and otherwise does nothing. Other spren refer to these spren as "deadeyes".]]

** Pretty much every enemy in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' is undead (technically Unsent), made up of souls that weren't sent to the afterlife by a Summoner until they coalesce into fiends. [[spoiler:And even two of your party members, although one wasn't so much "dead" as "never existed"]].

* The Egyptian gods were mostly immortal through [[WeCanRebuildHim recovery]] and [[ResurrectiveImmortality resurrection]] but Apep, usually depicted as a really big snake, was functionally unable to be killed at all because he being from the darkness before the universe, which now happens make up the underworld the dead pass through on their way to the afterlife. He hates the fact that there is life at all and wants to destroy the sun to bring about the end of the universe as ancients knew it, to put things back the way they used to be.[[/folder]]

* Undead wolves appear in multiple games of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, called bonewolves in ''[[Videogame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Bloodmoon]]'', skinned hounds in ''[[Videogame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion The Shivering Isles]]'' and death hounds in ''[[Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Dawnguard]]''. ''Dawnguard'' also gives the player the ability to summon Arvak, an undead HellishHorse, [[spoiler: and [[{{Dracolich}} Durnehviir]], an undead dragon]].
** Outside of these examples, though, most of the undead the player encounters are human. And we mean human: no elves, orcs, khajiit, or argonians among them (unless they're made from the recently-dead with Reanimate spells), even though there's no in-universe reason for there not to be. Some GameMods have set out to fix this by adding true non-human zombies and skeletons.

** In terms
of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, called bonewolves in ''[[Videogame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Bloodmoon]]'', skinned hounds in ''[[Videogame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion The Shivering Isles]]'' humanoid undead, this is largely downplayed throughout the series.
