* ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 3'' has the zombies encountered in the second mission, caused by a virus spread around by the area's boss. Their ZombiePukeAttack could [[ZombifyTheLiving zombify injured civilians]] (turning them into zombie enemies) and even the player too, although an infected player still retains sentience, gains a [[BloodyMurder devastating blood vomit attack]], and can be restored to human if they touch a medkit. The zombie virus once again appears in ''Metal Slug 4'', this time the virus being taken and used by the Amadeus Syndicate to infect an amusement park.

* Corprus walkers in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' are humans (or [[OurElvesAreDifferent elves]]) who are infected with the corprus disease, in incurable virus that increases the victims strength but destroys their mind. For extra {{squick}}, corprus walkers do feed on each other (unlike zombies in other media) when they don't have any other food - their massively accelerated cell growth means they don't mind having bits chopped off as they only grow back stronger. In some cases they even defy physics, surviving by eating their own flesh.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', victims of the Corprus walkers in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' Disease are humans (or [[OurElvesAreDifferent elves]]) who are infected this trope crossed with being {{Technically Living Zombie}}s. Corprus is a divine disease created by [[BigBad Dagoth]] [[PhysicalGod Ur]] using power channeled from the corprus disease, in [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]], the still-beating heart of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]]. It is an incurable virus that increases the victims strength but destroys their mind. For extra {{squick}}, corprus walkers do feed on each other (unlike zombies in other media) when they don't have any other food - their disease which causes massively accelerated cell growth, leading to increases in strength and endurance, as well as making sufferers TheAgeless and granting them IdealIllnessImmunity. However, it also destroys their minds until they are little better than feral monsters. Unlike zombies in most other media, Corprus sufferers will feed on each other when no other food is available. The aforementioned cell growth means they don't mind having bits chopped off as they only grow gives them a form of HealingFactor, however, causing the eaten-off parts to ''grow back stronger. stronger''. In some cases they even defy physics, surviving by [[{{Autocannibalism}} eating their own flesh.flesh]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' features the Infested, victims of a horrific virus that [[BodyHorror twists the bodies of its hosts into terrifying monstrosities]]. The individual organisms seem to be little more than mindless beasts, but observations suggest that there is some kind of HiveMind directing them. A few notable individuals have maintained their identities and personalities, but the virus has still managed to influence their thoughts. The Infestation's origins are murky, but it's implied that the Orokin created the plague as a bioweapon before deciding that it was too difficult to control; Alad V's experiments in the present have created a new strain capable of infecting machinery.

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' recently introduced [[DemonicSpiders husks]], which are horrifying undead abominations covered in dust that transforms anything touched by it into another husk. Hands-down, these are ''the'' most horrifying monster in DF, even trumping [[spoiler:TheLegionsOfHell]] for sheer terror.

* In ''Literature/AlongTheWindingRoad'', the zombie plague seems to be transferred by blood contact, which is a risk when a zombie with bleeding gums bites you. There's also the "immunity jerky," though it wasn't precisely found by rigorous scientific testing.
