* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', all Cleaved are {{Technically Living Zombie}}s whose sole purpose is to kill every non-Cleaved person around them, but some retain their intelligence and memories and have more complex motives.

** Reginald Shoe, a former romantic revolutionary, who after his death in the Ankh-Morpork civil war (or rather, the last substantial one, in ''Discworld/NightWatch'', not ''the'' civil war that overthrew the last King of Ankh) thirty years prior to the present time became a mortuary worker and [[SoapboxSadie fervent Death Rights activist]]. After the events of ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', he also became the first (and so far only) zombie recruit of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. He is a highly valued policeman, known for his calm and laconic humour. To quote Watch Commander Vimes, Reg Shoe was a man born to be dead.
** The wizard Windle Poons, who, after his death aged 130 years old (in ''Discworld/ReaperMan'') became a zombie due to the fact that Death was temporarily not available to take away Poons' soul. The undead Poons had more fun during the couple of days spent as a zombie than during the 100 years prior.
** [[AmoralAttorney Mr. Slant]], a lawyer and president of the Guild of Lawyers. Has no discernible sense of humour. In fact, it is said that the only effect death had on Mr. Slant was that he started working through his lunch break. His will to live originates from the fact that his descendants still refuse to pay him for the case where he defended himself, lost, and was beheaded.

* Installments 3-5 of the nightmaretastic Canadian workplace safety PSA series "There Are No Accidents" (1 and 2 had Final Destination-style precognition, and 6 had a last-second rescue) have people killed in a workplace incident coming back to life upon hearing the word "accident" and explaining why it was no such thing.
** Three had a woman fall off a ladder and through a glass table. When she gets up, her face is slashed to ribbons. She explains that the ladder should have been replaced, she knew better than to over-reach, and she should have had a spotter.
** Four had a forklift driver crushed/impaled by a load of pipes because he backed into a shelf while chatting with his coworker. He drag himself out of the heap, pipes sticking through his chest in several places, and explains that the shelf was broken, the load was too heavy, and he should have been paying attention.
** Finally, 5 has a dead electrical worker with severely burnt hands and face sit up at his funeral and explain he had never been properly trained and the insulation job was shoddy, to the horror of his living relatives.

* Mama from 2013 had Revenant zombie Edith Brennan aka mama. While she seemed mindless and animalistic (she WAS insane when she was alive) she had enough intelligence to realize she was hideous and dead, preferring to hide herself.

** ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' also has revenants -- undead who seek out their murderers. They're fairly underpowered.

* ''WebVideo/JourneyQuest'' features Carrow, a cleric that becomes undead after a botched resurrection spell. Having retained most of his personality and memories, he fits in this category. He has still serious trouble with his state, though, since his god is seriously antagonistic to undead.

* The zombie-like [[MonsterOfTheWeek Orphnochs]] of ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'' fall under this, since the natural process of becoming an Orphnoch usually involve physically and/or emotionally traumatic deaths. There are others who are forcibly killed to kickstart the process by another Orphnoch, but those who do succeed in surviving the forced transformation are classified as weaker.

There are others who are forcibly killed to kickstart the process by another Orphnoch, but those who do succeed in surviving the forced transformation are classified as weaker. Likewise, not only do they retain their intelligence and personality, effectively still being the same person, but even can alternate between their monster and original human forms. The "decaying" part of being a zombie comes from their (literally) ashen complexion in monster form, as well as any sign of actual decay in either form shows up as eroding.
