** It's worth noting that the black-aligned zombies of Innistrad are frequently refered to as ghouls in order to differentiate them from their more [[MadScientist mad science]] themed blue counterparts.

* [[CthulhuMythos Lovecraftian Ghouls]] -- Ghouls as a living and non-human species, often with distinctive canine muzzle and ears, and with a pale or greenish cast. Other types of ghouls as their own living race do occasionally appear in other media.

** Hancock from ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' became a ghoul through use of an experimental drug he found while on one of his "wild tears" following his departure from Diamond City after his brother, [[MayorPain Mayor McDonough]], took over and had all the ghouls of the city thrown out. He became the mayor of the town of Goodneighbor after staging a coup against its previous ruler, a nasty piece of work named Vic.

* Gaichu from ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns Hong Kong'' is a sufferer of the HMHVV(K) virus, which has robbed him of his eyesight, ability to digest anything other than sentient flesh, and his standing as a Red Samurai. However, Gaichu was one of the lucky ones, since he was aware of what happened to him and had the focus to get through it with his psyche relatively intact. When you meet him, Gaichu is a CulturedBadass who [BlindSwordsman cuts up mooks by the dozen in spite of being blind]], debates philosophy and poetry and [[PickyPeopleEater makes delicious human ''sashimi'']].

** In ''The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath'' ghouls ([[spoiler:now including Mr. Pickman, who has evidently retired from the world of art in favor of the underworld]]) are shown more sympathetically, and they even aid Mr. Carter. The ghouls demonstrate that they can travel between our world and the dreamlands, and that they even ceremonially discard bones from the Crag of the Ghouls into the Vale of Pnath. Later additions to the Franchise/CthulhuMythos have given ghouls their own culture, [[EldritchAbomination god]] called Mordiggian, priests and temples.

** Ghasts, a far more deadly species that coexists in the dreamland underworld with ghouls, are described as semi-humanoids with hooves and kangaroo-like legs. Though "ghast" originally was a synonym for "ghost", the word is often used to describe ghouls or, a type of ghoul, in other media, possibly due to HPL's influence.

* The ghouls in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' are humans who have been mutated by the radiation, but are behaviorally still normal humans. They do resemble corpses, and are functionally immortal, but tend to be discriminated against. Some of them do go feral, however, and act like standard Hollywood zombies (eating human flesh and the like). There's several variants, like Glowing Ones, which are usually feral and so irradiated they live up to their name, and Marked Men, who had their skin flayed off by nuke-induced irradiated sandstorms, and yet won't die because of this same radiation, and are thus in constant pain.

** Harold, a Ghoul with a plan in his head is in fact [[spoiler:not one]]. He shows up in ''VideoGame/Fallout1'' and ''VideoGame/Fallout2'' and has a small cameo in ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' where we see that [[spoiler:the plant has grown into a tree. With him inside.]]
** Raul in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' shows that being able to live forever isn't exactly a good thing; his hands and knees have arthritis, his eyes are covered in cataracts, and [[spoiler:loosing his family and replacement]] has taken a toll on him. Whether or not this is all in his head is up for the player to decide on his companion quest.
