* ''Webcomic/KongTower'' {{Lampshades}} this [[http://townsendwright.com/kong-tower/kt46/ here]] in which [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Rob McCobb, Zombie P.I.]] cites just about every option listed on this page as possibilities for how a slowly-turning zombie will end up. Sort of {{Subverted}} in that it turns out to be the stereotypical ''"Brains!"'' moaning zombie.
--> '''Rob McCobb:''' People think ''zombieism'' must be ''one condition,'' like a disease. Truth is, "Zombie" is about as descriptive as "Biped." Or are you the same thing as a bird, kangaroo, and velociraptor?

* The Zombies in ''Literature/ParadiseRot'' are intelligent only as long as they eat human brains. They can survive on animals, but they start to lose intelligence as they do so. This causes some vampire-esque angst, as some of them don't like killing and eating innocents.

* ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' has several different types such as {{jiangshi}} (who suffer from rigor mortis), {{mumm|y}}ies (with dry skin), {{FrankensteinsMonster}}s (who are artificially created), early zombies (who lacked proper preservation and need to stay cold to avoid decay) and the regular modern zombies that get artifical formaldehyde-based blood and an artifical heart to keep it pumping. All zombies retain their human intellect provided that their brains are kept from decaying.

* Cie'th from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' are l'Cie that have [[YouHaveFailedMe failed their given task]] and transformed into crystal-ridden warped monsters. They have such [[SarcasmMode heartwarming names]] as "Ghoul" and "Ghast". And they eventually degrade into immobile LivingStatues called Cie'th Stones -that are [[AndIMustScream still suffering.]] Even worse, a person's mental state can hasten the process, resulting in some mooks turning into Cie'th ''instantly''.
** The alternative isn't much better. When a l'Cie completes their task, their body is instantly transformed into a human-shaped crystal. It's little wonder that the humans in the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' world consider becoming a l'Cie to be a FateWorseThanDeath.

** Even worse, the fal'Cie have figured out how to [[LoopholeAbuse exploit a certain loophole]]; if a fal'Cie creates a l'Cie without a Focus, the resulting LogicBomb creates an ''instant'' Cie'th. This effectively means that if the fal'Cie need an undead army on the spot and you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time - enjoy your eternal suffering as a shambling monster without any input or means of preventing it whatsoever!

* The zombies in the IDW {{crossover}} comic ''Infestation: Outbreak'' consume flesh and infect the victims, looking like rotting corpses. They are also somehow able to infect machines (thanks to {{magitek}} called Artillica) and other undead (which results in a vampire/zombie hybrid). All zombies are guided by a [[HiveMind single intelligence]] known as the Undermind, whose eternal hunger is shared by all zombies. These zombies are then spread to other worlds, including ''GIJoe'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''{{Transformers}}'', and ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''.
* DonaldDuck was once stalked by a Zombie called Bombie the Zombie. He was of the Voodoo variety and had to hand a cursed doll which shrank him, mistaking him for [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] who was a [[OldShame absolute jerk]] to this Voodoo priest who then sent said Zombie after him.

* The undead in ''RedDeadRedemptionUndeadNightmare'' are a combination of flesh-eating, plague-bearing, and to some extent voodoo[[note]]A curse brought about by someone defiling an Aztec burial site, but there's no overall leader or commander.[[/note]]. In addition to the basic infected humans, there are a number of specialized undead that seem to be [[{{Expy}} Expies]] of the special infected from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead''.

* The zombies in ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'' were created by being injected with Element 115, and being somewhat controllable (with color-coordinated eye glow as well). While headshots will deal considerably more damage, it is not a requirement and some can live for a few seconds with their head blown off and still attacking you. Injecting them with more 115 can turn them back into being human.

* The zombie in ''VideoGame/TheUltimateHauntedHouse is one of the monsters in the house, which sleeps in an iron maiden in a torture chamber in the house's basement. It is mindless, bright green, and looks like its skin is melting off, and unusually for a zombie, it attacks with magic curses rather than directly. Like all of the monsters in the house, it is described as "nasty" and cannot be attacked, only fled from.
