* Something like this happens when the player first runs into a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Despoiled]] in ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}''. BJ blows up the Nazis' [[AppliedPhlebotinum Black Sun]] machine, causing it to release a shockwave that vaporizes everyone in the room except himself and one particular Gestapo officer. The guy stands in place for a few moments, writhing in apparent pain, and BJ walks ''right'' up to him, presumably to force him to surrender. Imagine his (and the player's) surprise when the Nazi suddenly turns around and roars, revealing his skeletal face.

** A downplayed example is used in the same episode, when they see a person nodding their head, and refusing to listen to commands, in an area with a reported zombie attack. [[spoiler: Just headphones.]]

This is often easily survivable with Slow Zombies, as you've got a minute or two to realize something's up. Fast Zombies are not so forgiving, and probably only main characters will get away with this.

This is RealLife. Everyone knows zombies are make-believe creatures, they're only "real" in the movies. If you see a "zombie", odds are it's one of your friends with poor taste who insist on scaring you, or someone who has been in an accident of some kind. So when a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombie outbreak]] starts, it's unsurprising that most people will chafe when confronted with something that -- well, only exists "in fiction". Still, you'd think most people have the presence of mind to back away from a smelly, shambling corpse of a man who is missing limbs and moaning for ''[[BrainFood braaaains!]]''...

* The first zombie we see in ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead'' is supposed to look like just some random person wandering around the cemetery, until he attacks the girl. Doesn't help that in one colorized version, he's green.

* In the original 1978 ''Film/DawnOfTheDead'', a woman encounters her dead husband while a SWAT raid is taking place. Believing he's still the man she'd fallen in love with, she rushes into his arms... and gets a healthy chunk bitten out of her neck and shoulder by the briefly confused zombie; they are possibly the most ''convincing'' looking zombie bites in the history of zombie movies post-''NightOfTheLivingDead''.

* Played for laughs in DeadRising2 in which one survivor you have to rescue is a little old lady, who thinks the zombies surrounding her are mall employees, and complains to Chuck that "I am trying to find a present for my granddaughter and these people are not being very helpful, they completely ignore me!" played even further is that, once you tell her to come to the safehouse she very very slowly waddles forward on her walker, forcing Chuck to pick her up and carry her himself.

** It's a big subversion in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' when Leon (who knows all about zombie outbreaks) takes down his first enemy and realizes, despite not appearing or acting like a normal human, "It's not a zombie!"

Dying Like Animals was supposed to be cut months ago per TRS, so these examples need to go
[[DyingLikeAnimals That]] is [[PlotInducedStupidity rarely]] the [[ApathyKilledTheCat case]] here. There will always be one person who misidentifies the [[NotUsingTheZWord living-impaired]] as a regular, if badly hurt, human. There's two variants of this, with differing levels of [[TooDumbToLive idiocy involved]].
