* 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]].]]

* As could be expected, ''AllFleshMustBeEaten'' allows for pretty much every permutation of the trope imaginable.

* TYPE IV: '''Healing, and no rotting'''. The (un)[[PublicDomainArtifact Holy Grail]] of undead healing. This is usually reserved for the "freshest" and more powerful undead, like [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. Provided enough blood, they can [[HealingFactor heal any injury]], except perhaps those made by {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es like [[HolyBurnsEvil holy artifacts]] or [[WeakenedByTheLight sunlight.]]

* Undead in ''LordsOfMagic'' are Type II, and consequently have no natural ability to heal. They can still be healed by magic though, ironically making Life spells very useful for a Death army. Vampires also drain life from their enemies, and against weak enemies can drain it faster than the enemy can hurt them.

* The undead race in ''[[Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures DMFA]]'' get the "no rot, no healing" version. 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.

[[BigBad Dark Pegasus]] created them with the "no rot, no healing" version.ability to regenerate by eating living flesh; however, most find it too disgusting so they act like type III.
