* Subverted in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'', where numerous people in the backstory ''thought'' the [[ResurrectiveImmortality Undead Curse]] was spread like a disease and tried to quarantine its victims, but were doomed to failure because that's not how the curse is spread. [[spoiler:It seems more likely all people are ''born'' with the curse but are asymptotic until the First Flame starts to fade.]]

Plague-bearing zombies are becoming increasingly common in modern zombie-horror. Created by a virus or occasionally machine or somesuch. These are the zombies that are guaranteed to turn others into zombies due to their highly communicable virus or nanobots or whatever. Almost always merged with FleshEatingZombie. Often {{Technically Living Zombie}}s.

* ''Webcomic/TheOtherGreyMeat'' has zombification via infection. Zombies become more intelligent based on the number of victims they have, as well as the victims of their victims (and so on).

PatientZero has turned back into a normal person because of this, and he's smart enough to have come up with a substance that sates a zombie's hunger without making them evolve further.

* The creatures in Tim Lebbon's ''Literature/{{Berserk}}'' ([[NamesTheSame has nothing to do with a certain anime]]) are zombies created by a bioweapon cooked up by the Brittish government. The infected become {{Perpetual Motion Monster}}s, and can only be harmed with silver. That said, they're very smart, and telepathic to boot.

* Ghouls in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' are people and animals who have been corrupted by the Blight and haven't died from it yet. They retain their sanity for a time, but eventually start resembling Romero zombies and attack anything in sight other than Darkspawn. Darkspawn often use them as craftsmen and food.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' has an actual "Plague Zombie" that can be created with the ''Animate Dead'' spell, as long as the ''Contagion'' spell is cast as part of the animation process. They carry a disease known as "zombie rot", and can inflict it through either their attacks or by exploding when they die. Creatures who die while infected with zombie rot will rise as plague zombies themselves soon after.

* In [[{{Tron20}} Tron 2.0]] and TronEvolution, virus-infected Programs behave like this. They become twisted, mindless ''things'' whose only purpose and directive is to infect and destroy as many healthy Programs as possible. And in both cases, the plaguemaster/Patient Zero was merely an UnwittingPawn of much nastier conspirators using the threat of a {{cyberspace}}-wide ZombieApocalypse to hide something much worse.
