* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' illustrated this by featuring different types of zombies in the same film. There are your standard Romero-esque {{Flesh Eating Zombie}}s who attack the facility at the end, but the ones faces by the main characters are described as a "Redneck Zombie Torture Family". They don't eat human flash, are more intelligent as shown by their use of human weapons, and they're only interested in killing and torturing their victims.

** Atronachs are a type of unaligned [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] which are essentially the {{Elemental Embodiment}}s of the elements they represent. The most common are the [[FireIceLightning Flame (also known as "Fire"), Frost, and Storm]] varieties. Others include [[AllYourPowersCombined Air]], [[PoisonousPerson Flesh]], [[ExtraOreDinary Iron]], and [[DishingOutDirt Stone]]. Flesh Atronachs are notably the only type of Atronach that requires creation, since they're literally sewn together from corpses and reanimated.

** The Buffyverse could probably be said to have multiple forms of undead. It's implied that true "zombies" are basically voodoo -- Anya mentions that zombies wouldn't eat people "unless commanded by their zombie master." (Though there is also another occasion where a magic mask made the dead in the area come back as zombies, all of whom wanted to get the mask and [[PhysicalGod become the Voodoo god]] it represented.) Other people (like the dead in "The Zeppo") get risen by magic but are more like revenants, retaining their own wills and minds. There are also some {{Artificial Zombie}}s, of whom [[BigBad Adam]] is the best example.
** In Season 9, vampires are almost zombie-like without the Magic Seed allowing demons to posses a sired body. Vampires are now much more mindless and feral. The Scoobies call them Zompires (Zombie/Vampires) so as not to confuse them.

* The zombies in ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'' are a blend of the Flesh Eating Zombie and Plague Zombie archetypes. They originate from a virus that was altered using the same drugs supposedly used to create zombies in Haitian folklore. The virus can affect [[RaisingTheSteaks non-human animals as well]], [[spoiler:and can even infect plants, which makes them somehow able to move]]. They have up to ten times their original strength thanks to UninhibitedMusclePower, but this decreases as they decay. Their intelligence varies, from being as smart as a human (in the case of Ayumi) to the standard mindless shamblers.
* ''LightNovel/TheWeaknessOfBeatriceTheLevelCapHolySwordswoman'' has the zombies of the Underworld, which are a combination of Revenant (they retain all of the skills and memories they had in life) and Voodoo (they are completely subject to the will of the Underworld Lord). Anyone who dies, regardless of the cause, will have their soul captured by the Underworld and become another zombie. These zombies can't be permanently killed, as their souls will return to their Underworld to be reused.

* ''Film/TheVoid'': Most of the monsters are essentially zombies, being the mutated bodies of humans with souls from the Void placed inside them.

* The zombies in ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'' are the result of a space vampire sucking the [[LifeEnergy life force]] of a human victim, leaving a shriveled husk behind. The husk will try to suck the life force on humans as soon as possible, spreading the curse, otherwise it will explode into dust after two hours.

* Certain entities in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' are referred to as zombies, but they're really closer to [[OurLichesAreDifferent Liches.]] What are these entities? Well, [[spoiler:the titular Magical Girls themselves.]]
