* The minigame "Zombie Tag" in ''VideoGame/WiiParty'' involves Mii getting trapped in a CreepyCemetery with seemingly classical zombies running amok and trying to turn them into other zombies. The twist is that the whole zombie thing ''isn't permanent'': at sunrise, every single Mii (even the ones that were already zombies in the first place) turn back to normal.

** Bogleech's ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' has human patients transform into [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/special-slobs.html Slobs]] after death, or in some cases an arbitrary amount of time after being revived. Bog has indicated that anything can slobbify under the right, extremely rare conditions, but Gray Zoners (read: humans) are so incompatible with the Hospital on a basic level that the very concept of humanity begins to break down, causing them to slobbify based on whatever affliction they're suffering from.

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

While zombies are created by a virus that's spread by being bitten, it's said to be extremely weak: a healthy human won't even get sick before their body fights off the infection, they must be close to death already before the zombie virus can transform them. All zombies retain their human intellect provided that their brains are kept from decaying.decaying, and failing to makes them stupid but relaxed and easygoing, not feral monsters. The process causes so few changes that [[spoiler: a young girl that Lala deliberately turned into a zombie to stop her from dying didn't even realize she was a zombie until Miss Smith pointed out that she wasn't breathing and her heart wasn't beating anymore]].

** They also have some revenant elements to them, with infectees retaining some of their original abilities (which is why they can shoot, drive, and even pilot starships). Additionally, every Flood form is apparently a repository for the collective memories, knowledge, and intelligence of ''every single sentient'' the parasite as a whole have consumed; when an outbreak has reached a great enough level, they will form Graveminds, giant Flood biomasses that can access this hyper-intelligent HiveMind and telepathically control every Flood form within their range of influence (which can extend up to at least a ''star system''). Once the Flood reach this point, they will stop simply infecting targets, and begin using their biomass as building blocks for even more dangerous creatures designed by the collective HiveMind.

* "Wombies" (as in worm zombies) are mentioned in "The Gene: An Intimate History" by Siddhartha Mukherjee. They are clearly a victim of RuleOfCool naming and would rather fall under BungledSuicide.[[note]]Some cells of Caenorhabditis elegans are doomed to die for the greater of worm. The name refers to a mutant where the apoptosis doesn't work and they live happily ever after. So, nothing undead, rather the opposite.[[/note]]

* Zombies from the {{Xanth}} series technically qualify as the "voodoo" type, with the twist that they're all the product of ''one'' specific magician's personal magic talent (and he [[DarkIsNotEvil wasn't a bad guy]]). They retain their memories and at least some of their intelligence, although they're compelled to obey the Zombie Master's instructions, and their speech is usually impaired because bits of their flesh are constantly dropping off including parts of their mouths. [[spoiler: At least one Xanthian zombie has been rejuvenated by the PowerOfLove, to a point where the effects of decomposition reversed themselves and she ''almost'' became alive again.]]

* In ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', Cyril the zombie from ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead'' is depicted as otherwise decent guy during his off-hours outside his game. In fact, he is depicted as possessing a simpleminded wisdom that is nevertheless valid advice.

* ''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.
