* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'s'' [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/oovule.htm Oovule]], a TechnicallyLivingZombie, is arguably a Type ''V'', since it can not only heal without rotting, but it heals everything around it to the point of restoring zombies back to their pre-death state.

* Zombies produced by the Zombie Master in the ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' books are capable of regeneration; they tend to become more human, un-rotting as they spend more time around people and being treated ''as'' people.

* Zombies produced by the Zombie Master in the ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' books are capable of regeneration; they tend can put themselves back together no matter how thoroughly they are destroyed, as well as never running out of rotting matter to lose. They can also become more human, un-rotting as they spend more time around people and being treated ''as'' people.nearly human if they're cared for, though their zombie traits still show on occasion.

* Horrors created by the Necromancer class in ''GuildWars'' are strong Type Is. Rather than having a timed expiration date like the Ritualist's summoned spirits, undead Horrors suffer constant health degeneration that mounts over time. This even extends to the mighty Flesh Golem, a minion created by an Elite skill that a player can control only one of at a time. The Necromancer can heal his minions, either through [[CastFromHitPoints Necromancer skills]] or healing abilities from his secondary profession (ReviveKillsZombie is averted), but eventually the degeneration will become so severe that it's impossible to keep up with even outside of combat.

* Zombina, from ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', is a type II, which is kind of a problem when you're the suicide unit of a SWAT brigade that deals with extraspecies criminals. Not that she seems to mind, as she'll often riddle ''herself'' with bullets just to hit someone behind her. She "heals" wounds by placing skin grafts over them or simply outright replacing body parts, giving her a patchwork appearance.

She "heals" wounds by placing skin grafts over them or simply outright replacing body parts, giving her a patchwork appearance. She has undergone several treatments (including replacing her blood with formaldehyde), so it can also be argued that she's a type I who managed to slow her rotting to the point where it has effectively stopped.

* ''PushingDaisies'' has a rather strange take, somewhere between Types II and IV. People brought back to life by Ned regain full cognizance and physical capability (or rather, as much physical capability as how intact they are would allow), but their actual bodies are not repaired. A person who has had their head impaled would be brought back with no neurological problems, even while the wound itself remained. A person who has little physical damage or decay would still register as physically dead. And yet all people brought back thus seem to be capable of as much biological process as their bodies allow (capable of things like eating, but unclear whether it is necessary). There's also no further decay, or any change at all (a dog that was knocked down and brought back in the prime of life remains perfectly healthy some twenty years later).

* ''TabletopGame/InNomine'' has several variants of undead, mummies and vampires, which fall into Type IV, and zombies which are a variant Type I, they rot unless they can get enough of a certain substance (which varies but is generally brains, blood or similar), and they can be repaired magically although this is normally considered a waste of [[{{Mana}} Essence]]. Incidentally, ReviveKillsZombie is averted in both cases, due to the fact that the Corporeal Song of Healing will repair non-living (even inanimate) objects as well as living things.

* Webcomic/{{Erma}}'s dog Siris is revealed to be a Type IV after surviving being shot three times in the face and being run over to the point it left a very noticeable divot horizontally through his middle. And it was only these wounds that revealed his undead status in the first place, even to his StringyHairedGhostGirl owner and mother (who is also a StringyHairedGhostGirl).

** After being killed and surviving through HeroicWillpower, [[spoiler:Bucciarati]] becomes a Type II - no rotting, but can't heal wounds naturally. Fortunately, Giorno can use his powers to mimic a HealingTouch.

* [[spoiler: Magical Girls]] in ''Franchise/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' are a Type III. [[spoiler: Their souls are contained inside gems, meaning their bodies are empty shells that are remotely controlled. This means they can take tons of punishment without feeling pain and be endlessly repaired with magic. However, when the gem and body are separated, they lose control and their body reverts back to its corpse-like state. In one of the bad endings in ''[[VideoGame/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaPortable Madoka Magica Portable]]'', we learn what happens if this separation lasts for too long. [[{{Tearjerker}} Poor Sayaka]].]]
