* The zombies in ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}'' are a Type IV. No matter how long it's been since the ZombieApocalypse started, each new area you explore will be full of new zombies to kill. Even after months or years, the zombies will still be waiting there for you to arrive. And once you kill them, you need to further damage the corpse by pulping, chopping up, or burning it, or they will just come back again, unless you kill them ''[[NoKillLikeOverkill really]]'' hard.



* The undead race in ''[[Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures DMFA]]'' are a type IV. [[BigBad Dark Pegasus]] created them with the ability to regenerate by eating living flesh; however, most find it too disgusting so they act like type III. They tend to gradually lose flesh to injuries, but since they're magically animated this is mostly a cosmetic issue. They can also stick severed limbs back in place, and get prosthetic limbs if they lose the originals.

* TYPE II: '''No healing, but no rotting'''. Much more dangerous for humans, this means that unless dealt with, every zombie is a PerpetualMotionMonster that can last forever in this less than glamorous form of {{immortality}}. The {{Mummy}} and his ilk are like this as well. [[InvincibleMinorMinion Skeletons]] and liches have a form of this where they can [[PullingThemselvesTogether reassemble themselves]].

** Hiro Hiyorimi is technically type II. He need Hime to give her her blood (flame in the anime) to stay alive as he was killed at the start of the series saving her from falling steel beams and she returned the favor by making him her Blood Warrior. He can take a good chunk of punishment due to this but can't heal until he gets more blood and there's a limit to how much damage he can take [[spoiler: Though by the end of the series, he gets the flame of the phoenix in him and doesn't need the blood anymore. He can still be hurt and killed, but he's more then trained by that point.]]
** Reiri Kamura falls under Type IV due to being a vampire. She can (and does) lose limps, but they don't really cause much damage to her other then some disability leaving her vulnerable. Once she gets the part back, she can reconnect it no problem with no ill effects.

* Lucy Westenra in ''Victorian Undead II'' is Type IV. In second issue she's hit by Holmes via a flare in the face and the third shows half of it horribly scarred. After feeding on Holmwood, it regenerates her back to normal. So blood is a bit of a component in the healing.

* Yorga's brides in ''[[Film/CountYorga Return of Count Yorga]]'' kinda zig zags it due to not really explaining thing. It's possible they're Type III as, at the start of the movie, we see a few brides with discolored or slightly disfigured skin. Though considering that they were buried before Yorga summoned them. It's possible that the vampirism didn't take hold until that point to stop the decay. Otherwise, it could be straight Type IV as in the climax of the film two cops who encounter them shoot them with their guns point blank. The two brides that get hit flinch a bit and we see blood spurt from the wounds, but they continue to keep coming. Later we see that the wounds have healed.

* Yorga's brides in ''[[Film/CountYorga Return of Count Yorga]]'' are briefly shown to be Type IV. Two cops who encounter them shot them with their guns. The two brides that got hit flinch a bit and we see blood splurt from the wounds, but they continue to keep coming. Later we see that the wounds have healed.
* Vampires in ''Film/VanHelsing'' are Type IV. Unless hit directly in the heart, they can heal from pretty much anything. Mariska takes a few crossbows from Helsing's crossbow, but when she goes to human form the wounds heal instantly. Dracula willingly runs himself through a sword Helsing is holding and hardly feels anything (though does mention losing a finger that didn't heal, possibly due to holy item that prevented it from doing so) and Aleera gets hit by frozen acid by the heroes, when she recovers, most of her face is [[BodyHorror burnt off]] but quickly regenerates.

* Undead units in ''{{Gladius}}'' can buy a passive ability that lets them regenerate health (quite useful, as undead summoners need spend their own health to power their spells).

It's worth noting that "No Rotting" includes preserving muscles, bones, and ligaments ''despite'' everyday wear and tear. This is often implied of many perpetual motion zombies said to never die. Another variant is just how ''much'' and how "neatly" the healing is. Some undead just have enough healing to patch themselves up over a long period, leaving [[ScarsAreForever massive and ugly cancerous scars]]. Others have a full on HealingFactor that leaves no scarring, effectively locking their appearance forever.

* Type III later crossing towards Type I is the usual fate of undead in ''VideoGame/PillarsOfEternity'' -- normally, undead are created by (through necromancy or animancy) sticking a soul to a body so it doesn't leave as it should when the body dies. Such undead start out mostly as their pre-death selves (called fampyrs)... but suffer from a hunger for the flesh of sapient beings, which is also the only thing that staves off physical and mental degeneration. Eventually they degenerate far enough to go from vampire analogues to ghoul analogues (darguls, then into guls and finally revenants) before finally ending up as utterly mindless skeletons. There ''are'' some types of undead in terms of magical interaction who do not follow this progression, but most of them are the result of other sorts of soul-meddling (sticking souls in metal bodies, sticking animal souls into soulless but alive human bodies, etc) that don't really look as undead. Liches are a special case -- through obscure soul-trickery involving phylacteries they only get the physical degeneration, not the mental or hunger for flesh, and consequently tend to quickly end up as (self-aware) skeletons.
