* The Egyptian gods were mostly immortal through [[WeCanRebuildHim recovery]] and [[ResurrectionImmortality 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]]

** The undead have no need for sustenance (such as water, in case of fish). Some of the worst undead you can encounter are thus [[KillerRabbit giant sponges and whales]] as killing them was hard but avoiding them was easy before; avoiding them now isn't as simple as staying away from the water, because they can now pursue you even on land.

The sponges are even worse as they lack any limbs to cripple so the only way to beat them is to have your army dwarfs use hammers to literally beat Spongebob to a pulp (in version 0.40 onward) before it pushes too many of your worker dwarfs to death. Or just use magma like a "smart" (read: average) player would do.

* The Shardblades of ''Literature/TheWayOfKings'' are, essentially, zombie spren.

to:

* The Shardblades ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheWayOfKings'' are, essentially, zombie spren.''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)]].

* ''ComicBook/MightyAvengers'' has Ninja Were-Snakes. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by a caption.
-->'''Caption:''' Yes. [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Ninja Were-Snakes]].
** Followed shortly by Were-Slugs, Bugs, Rhinos, Octopi, Honey-Badgers, Roosters and Lamprey.
-->'''Caption:''' Don't say we never give you anything.



* ''Film/BlackSheep2007'' involves zombie sheep who turn humans into weresheep.
* ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' contains a brief shot of a zombie alligator in the opening sequence.

* In ''Film/{{Daybreakers}}'', vampirism effects humans and animals. The main character, a vampire scientist trying to find a viable blood substitute, has a laboratory full of vampirised test animals, and dialogue reveals that there was a rash of forest fires just after the vampire outbreak when newly vampirised animals wandered into the daylight and caught fire.



** Animal zombies are possible and are even non-violations of the Laws of Magic, but no one bothers because it's a ''very'' dark gray area and they're usually far less powerful than human dead anyway. However, there's also a rule that states that the older the corpse is, the more powerful it is, so there was this time Harry pulled out his trump card against a necromancer BigBad. [[spoiler: Two words: ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Zombie Tyrannosaurus]].'']]



* The ZombieApocalypse in ''The Rising'' and ''City of the Dead'' has demonic spirits animating pretty much every corpse over a certain size, human and otherwise. Most notably, one character is killed by a zombie sewer crocodile biting his head off, [[KillEmAll while the last two humans are offed by zombie rats]].



** The haunted conservatory at Spookyraven Manor contains a pet cemetery where some of the dead pets have been reanimated. You can encounter skeletal cats, skeletal hamsters, and even skeletal monkeys. It's possible, albeit difficult, to assemble an entire misshapen animal skeleton out of bones from all three types of monsters, then reanimate it and use it as your own spooky pet.



* In the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series, the T-Virus infects ''everything''. Zombie dogs, birds and plants are common, and we've seen oversized mutant snakes, sharks, worms, crocodiles, lions, an ''elephant''...

** In ''{{Eberron}}'', the Elves of Aerenal have [[DarkIsNotEvil their own versions of undead called the Deathless]]. These act as their rulers through the Undying Court, and are animated by positive energy rather than the usual Negative energy used by regular undead. Similarly, ''ForgottenRealms'' has baelnorns, a type of good-aligned elf liches.

* ''{{GURPS}}'' has the Zombie Vehicle spell which is designed with spaceships in mind.
* ''MagicTheGathering'' has an immense number of these, mostly various types of zombie. Zombie goblins, centaurs, ''[[WhenTreesAttack plants and fungi]]'' have all been seen as base cards. And because cards exist that resurrect creatures and give them the zombie subtype, any kind of creature in the game can theoretically be raised as zombies, from skeletons and ghosts to [[ElementalEmbodiment elementals]] and [[LivingStatue artifacts]]. It's probably best not to think too hard about it.
* ''{{Exalted}}'' gives us the Neverborn, who are what happens when the architects of all Creation are killed. As they never foresaw themselves as dying, the cycle of reincarnation can't possibly fit them, so they're stuck fettered to Creation and suffering from eternal gangrene of the soul. Which would explain why they want everything else to die, as that would free them to die as well.
* The NewWorldOfDarkness - particularly ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters'' - gives us the Chthonians, mysterious, powerful things that live in the depths of the Underworld. No one actually knows what they ''are'', but speculation paints them as the ghosts of entities that lived long before humanity walked the earth.
