* Owl / [[spoiler: Seidou Takizawa]] from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul[=:Re=]'' is not undead, but makes us of this trope as part of his overall Zombie motif. In colored artwork, he's almost as pale as his [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white hair]], with sunken eyes and discolored lips and nails. At one point, he talks about himself as someone that has already died and has a taste for brains.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'' the Forsaken have skin in various shades of grey, green and blue. Death Knights also tend to be paler then a living character with the same setting of skin shade. They also have access to a several different skin tones not available to living players, mostly in greens and greys. Though some of them are a bit odd - blood elves apparently decay into charcoal.
* ''BrutalLegend'' has the Drowning Doom, whom all their units have this look to them. Most noticeable is Drowned Ophelia, the doppelganger counterpart of Ironheade's Ophelia, who, naturally, turns from a healthy looking, yet slightly pale PerkyGoth, to an openly corpse blue after her transformation into the Queen of Black Tears.
* In ''GaiaOnline'', the main zombie skintones tend to be gray-white or greenish, though alternate zombie skintones have been known to include dark blue, purplish, and bright scarlet. There are four vampire skintones as well; a crappy 100 Gold potion in Skin Tyte with an exclusively pale-white base, and three found only in The Treehouse and the marketplace, which range from "basically, we just improved the old skintone" to "Now you, too, can be AmbiguouslyBrown". Zhivago in the plot manga and Kamilla in ''[=zOMG!=]'' are also AmbiguouslyBrown vampires, and were rather famous for formerly being the only ones.

* Queen Frieda of ''VideoGame/OneWayHeroics'' has slightly paler skin than the non-undead party members. It might be a case of this trope, but it might also just be a case of the lighting on her character portrait.

* Being based off of {{Exalted}}, KeychainOfCreation features various extremely pale Abyssals, the best-known of which is, of course, Secret.
* ''SchoolBites'': All of the usual vampires have chalk white skin, save Cleobatra who's [[TokenMinority African American]] but still sports a bit of paleness.

* The zombies of iZombie become noticeably pale with bleached out hair. At least one zombie deliberately dyes his hair to conceal this.

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/DeathVigil''; it's a side-effect of the Reaper's scythe to make its wielder have MysticalWhiteHair and pale skin--the appearance isn't unique to the Reaper herself.
