* [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombies]]: Just ordinary, run-of-the-mill walking corpses. They come in a variety of types, but they tend to share some general traits. Zombies tend to be [[ZombieGait Slow]] (usually...), weak (comparatively...), mostly blind ([[TheDeadHaveEyes unless they aren't]]), and stupid (at first...). [[MadeOfPlasticine Surprisingly squishy]], but they don't really notice. Made with HollywoodVoodoo in older works, and TheVirus in newer ones. Don't get bitten by [[PlagueZombie the latter form]]. Some of them [[KillItWithFire die quickly when burned.]] Others... [[InfernalRetaliation don't]]. However, most, if not all zombies, can be quickly taken down by RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain... except when they aren't. The ParasiteZombie can be highly resilient and adaptable and mutate its host in exotic ways. Know the characteristics of your local zombies to avoid embarrassing mistakes!

* [[OurLichesAreDifferent Liches]]: Popularized in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and common in modern {{Fantasy}}, a lich is an EvilSorcerer who retains his or her magical powers after death -- basically a revenant with a little something extra. In ''D&D'', the lich becomes undead by placing its soul in a SoulJar (or maybe [[Literature/HarryPotter seven of them]]), and can only be permanently destroyed by destroying said Soul Jar; in other fictions, the Soul Jar is optional. A lich's physical appearance can range from near-normal to zombie-like to completely skeletal, which usually depends on the lich's age. Because of their skill at magic, especially [[{{Necromancer}} necromancy]], liches tend to be among the most powerful and dangerous type of undead (if not ''the'' most powerful and dangerous) in settings where they exist. In the hierarchy of TheNecrocracy, they are guaranteed to be the top tier.

* Death, a.k.a. TheGrimReaper: The big guy himself, usually portrayed as an ImplacableMan in a BlackCloak carrying a SinisterScythe. But [[ComicBook/TheSandman not]] [[Series/DeadLikeMe always]]. [[AC:[[Literature/{{Discworld}} MAY SPEAK IN]] [[PaintingTheMedium ALL CAPS]]]]. Is a very diligent worker, who truly [[DeathTakesAHoliday deserves some vacation time]] every now and then. He might ask you nicely to GoIntoTheLight or he might try to send you there [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} himself]]. Or he might just be [[DeathRidesASkateboard a cool guy]] that fancies himself [[ChessWithDeath a nice game of chess]]. There are also variations that look similar to TheGrimReaper but aren't unique beings, yet still more dangerous and rare than your run-of-the-mill skeleton. He and his lesser servants may be formerly human, especially if YouKillItYouBoughtIt is in effect; other times they will just be {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of Death who have a lot in common with the Undead even though they aren't dead humans.
