* AbleTeam #8 "Army of Devils" involves a drug which turns gang punks into enraged killers, resulting loads of gorn, the use of excessive firepower and inarticulately growling attackers who need to be shot in the head to be stopped; it's been described by fans as a zombie story masquerading as an action adventure novel.

** But the zombies in Zombieland do are corpses according to the movie, not living at all, the food searching can be explained by some other reason, like some sort of residual memory.

* WarhammerFantasy has the Ghouls, who are cannibals from poor lands resorting to eating the corpses of the recently deceased because of their poverty. Whole packs of them gather around Strigoi vampires, who resemble them in both appearance and feeding habits. This was reflected in their rules, where they are considered to be "technically alive" and thus not bound to the army-wide rules that other units have (which includes both perks and handicaps, like not falling apart if the chief necromancer dies, but having to worry about morale). This was discarded for the sixth edition Vampire Counts army book in favor of streamlining the rules (them being subject to morale effects made them somewhat liable in the army, especially when zombies and skeletons are much better for this purpose), though in background terms they are still living creatures (albeit pallid and unhealthy ones), not animated corpses.
** TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} has the Pariahs, cybernetically modified humans put to use by the Necrons and their C'tan Masters. Like the Ghouls, they were unique in that they did not possess the Necron Rule. Unlike Ghouls, this was a liablity since it made them weaker than actual necrons (no regeneration) and would just plain disappear if the other necron units perished (meaning the enemy can completely ignore the Pariah, which wasn't hard to do since they were combat specialists with no movement modifiers). Less merciful than the Ghouls, they were completely retconned out of existence.

* There are some variants of this sort in a few of the various worlds of ''AllFleshMustBeEaten''. Since zombies are there to be slaughtered in AFMBE, and these guys are technically human, the gamebooks including technically living zombies admit that some players might have an ethical problem with killing them, and suggest that the Zombie Master include ways to cure and save the zombies in this sort of situation.

** Supplementary materials and WordOfGod say that the zombies rising from the grave were not actually dead, but simply assumed to be dead due to symptoms of the virus and then buried alive. The G-Virus (RE2's final boss) and C-Virus (RE6) are the only ones capable of actually reviving the dead.

* There's a group of zombies in ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'' who were given a very zombielike immortality by black magic, including their bodies rotting at least cosmetically even in the best cases, but never actually died.
