* [[spoiler:Riko, the protagonist]] from ''Manga/MadeInAbyss''. Although she didn't live a long enough life before being resurrected to actually have any memories from her past, she checks all of the other boxes. [[spoiler:Like everything brought back by the curse-warding box, she exists only to reach the bottom of the Abyss. Because she's human and lives in a society where doing so is a fairly normal childhood aspiration, she perceives it as her own goal. For her, though, it's more an overriding compulsion than a normal desire]].

* [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm15987636 "Night Walker"]] by Hayakawa-P feat. [[{{Music/Vocaloid}} Kagamine Len]]. Len rises from the dead out of the blue one night. He doesn't remember exactly how he ended up in a grave nor who he even ''is'', but he does remember his lover, Rin, and trudges through to see her again and make sure she's not alone. As the song goes on, he starts to remember more about Rin and his life before he died - it's heavily implied that [[spoiler:Rin]] is the one responsible for his death, but he doesn't care and ventures all the way to see her anyways.

* ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' has Revenants that [[AllThereInTheManual the manual]] states are demons rebuilt and rearmed with a homing missile launcher (the appearance and pain sounds imply Revenants are specifically derived from dead [[{{Mooks}} Imps]]), and while they may not have the best AI they certainly retain their original "single burning purpose": kill that pesky space marine! The Zombies themselves also fit this trope more than the typical zombie, being reanimated by demonic possession (and smart enough to use weapons).

* 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.

** The [[VideoGame/Doom2016 2016 reboot]] ups the ante: in this continuity, Revenants are made from human volunteers who are butchered and cybernetically augmented without anesthetics, then zapped with unfiltered demonic energy until they expire and almost immediately come back to life from said energy - all in order to be used as a SuperSoldier.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': Revenants are intelligent, if single-minded, undead obsessed with righting wrongs they suffered in life. In ''Freeport Venture: Blood and Iron'', a pegasus revenant with metallic wings appears an elite soldier in an undead horde, and is single-mindedly obsessed with killing Starlight in revenge for Starlight having apparently killed her friends. In life, [[spoiler:it was the Rainbow Dash from the Sombra timeline seen in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 The Cutie Remark]]", which was retconned out of existence by Starlight and Twilight, and was part of a small group of undead "survivors" who went to the "main" timeline for revenge]].

* Gwen, of ''ComicBook/IZombie'', though technically a zombie by the series' classifications, does not rot (though she can't naturally heal, either), and retains her life's memories and personality, though she requires brains to maintain them. The series also has creatures called revenants, who also retain their intelligence, but require living human flesh to survive.
