* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Celia has to pose as a Necromancer, which involves Belkar switching from [[FakingTheDead posing as a corpse]] to posing as a zombie. Hilariously enough, one of the goblins they are trying to fool suspect something- resulting in Belkar stabbing him to death before asking if anyone else feels like questioning what he is. The remaining goblin wisely decides to not ask further question.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': In ''Dominion'', three colonists attempting to escape the zombie massacre perpetrated by the Dark Judges pretend to be one of their brainwashed acolytes to get inside the protected dome where the other survivors are holed up. They're spotted after a while, and only one of them makes it.

* In ''Film/{{Zombieland}}'', [[spoiler:Bill Murray]] pretends to be a zombie (complete with professional makeup) so that he can play golf, and he uses his disguise to scare and play around with the main characters. [[spoiler:His disguise ultimately works a little ''too'' well, as Columbus mistakes him for a zombie and shoots him.]] It's a little strange that the ploy works given the nature of the zombies involved...

The TropeNamer is the song by {{L7}}, which was used in the trailer for ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', despite the song having nothing to do with zombies. [[note]]It's about ApatheticCitizens.[[/note]]

* One ''{{Planescape}}'' module included in the ''Planes of Chaos'' boxed set states that if the PlayerCharacters attempt to fool Cerberus this way to sneak past him into the Underworld, it's ''guaranteed'' to fail, saying he can smell the living. (Getting past him in order to get in requires a great deal of bargaining, and getting ''out'' past him is impossible - he tells them if they manage it that he will ''not'' let them - but if they complete their mission, there are other options.)

* During his escape, [[NoNameGiven the protagonist]] of ''Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth breifly immitates the shambling gait of one of the tainted Innsmouth residents while crossing a portion of town that was too well lit to provide any hiding places. {{Justified}} in that the area was mostly vacant and the act was only intended to fool someone who might see him from a distance.
