* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', Husks are essentially [[ArtificialZombie Cyborg Zombies]] created by the Reapers. In the first two games, you only ever see Human Husks. However, in the third game, due to [[spoiler:the Reapers arriving]], we see Husks of the other races - Cannibals are Batarians, Banshees are [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Ardat-Yakshi]], Marauders are Turians, Ravagers are [[spoiler:Rachni]], etc.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2889350/1/Bungle-in-the-Jungle-A-Harry-Potter-Adventure Bungle in the Jungle: A Harry Potter Adventure]]'', only most of the Inferi in the lost city are humans. There's also a number of pegasi and a {{Dracolich}}. This gets a nod in the [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3759007/1/Turn-Me-Loose-A-Harry-Potter-Adventure sequel]] where Harry mentions that most undead can't fly so getting above them is extremely useful when fighting them.

** Necrons are another alien race--well, ''former'' aliens. They transferred their [[BrainUploading consciouses into robot bodies]] about [[TimeAbyss 60 million years ago]] in a bid to gain immortality and power, but their masters, [[PhysicalGod the C'tan]] had manipulated them into doing it to [[YourSoulIsMine gain access to their souls (for eatin')]] without losing access to standing forces. They're flavor is very much that of an ancient Empire, once lost and now resurgent. They're essentially [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot undead robot aliens]].

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} gives us the normal variant of undead from Nurgle's Plague Zombies, though it's the trope is inverted with Nurglite Space Marines, or "plague marines" (for a given definiton of "nonhuman"), given that thet're still ''alive'', even though injury and disease should have made them keel over dead '''long'' ago. (Most have open wounds that leave their entrails entirely exposed.) Also averted with, Nurglite Daemons, who look like they should be undead, but are as much "alive" in a nontraditional sense as any other daemon.
** [[SpaceElves Eldar]] are an alien race who have to wear exotic crystals called "spirit stones" which would store their souls upon death, so that they can avoid a horrible afterlife. Occupied spirit stones are integrated into the"Infinity Circuit", a structure integrated into their ships as a surrogate afterlife and used for the Eldar to confer with them, particularly in times of need. So their ships are part technological, part ''dead aliens''. In times of need, they will also have the souls of the dead integrated into an essentially robot body to be used as heavy infantry or heavy walkers, the largest of which are Gundam-scale vehicles.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} gives us the normal variant of undead, Undead Daemons created from the souls of those killed (NOT turned into the undead) by the undead plague, undead statue robots (wraithguard and wraithlords) Undead Wizard Statue Robots (Wraithseer and Warlock Titans). Undead Robots (necrons) and Undead Mecha (Dreadnoughts to a degree and Nurgle Titans). Surprisingly no Undead Dragons (then again, [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} their fantasy counterpart]] fills in whatever holes it has).

* Non-human undead are common in ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', usually as the soldiers of [[EvilSorceror Xykon]] and [[DarkMessiah Redcloak]], both of whom have the ability to create undead. Between them they have created zombie goblins, zombie hobgoblins, zombie trolls, zombie dragons and even a zombie angel.
