* Parodied in ''[[LEGOAdaptationGame Lego Indiana Jones 2]]'', when you reenter the level in which you escape the nuclear bomb, you find the town to be decimated and smoldering. You then build a device that brings the gray skinned dumbies to life! They can't do anything but irritate you but still...

The MilitariesAreUseless trope is a must in such a movie to avoid the film ending in five minutes. If they ARE actually competent, they'll just also happen to be evil.

Subtrope of OurZombiesAreDifferent. A member of TheUndead trope family. See NightOfTheLivingMooks for cases where zombies don't threaten the end of the world. See also ZombieGait, EverythingsDeaderWithZombies. RaisingTheSteaks is what happens when humans are not the only creatures that can be infected by TheVirus. The zombie apocalypse is almost always a case of GuiltFreeExterminationWar requiring that [[EveryoneIsArmed everybody be armed]]. Expect a healthy dose of InfantImmortality - for despite a population of millions of children at any given time in any human population ''very few'' will become (visible) zombies - and when they do show up it will just be one child zombie, for audience effect. Also expect the IncongruouslyDressedZombie to turn up for occasional comic relief.

* This happens halfway into ''Film/NewKidsTurbo'', which is shown to be more of a parody of zombie films than an actual zombie film, complete with grainy filters.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Like ''A Song of Ice and Fire'' above, White Walkers are neck and neck with Daenerys as TheDreaded. Disappeared to the point of being considered a myth, stories of seeing them are scoffed at. But when they are seen, or heard as the MassOhCrap at hearing the fabled three horn blasts demonstrate, the only course of action is DontAskJustRun. The White Walkers seem intent on building an army of "wights", undead corpses resurrected to act as footsoldiers to march south and overrun Westeros and seemingly there is nothing that is able to stop them. Vast swathes beyond the Wall have been overrun by wights. This is why so many wildlings (such as Osha and her original group) are fleeing south, and why many of the wildling factions are banding together to fight their way into the south. The Season 2 finale has an entire ''army'' of wights going to attack the Night's Watch, led by the White Walkers.

* ''Film/HereAlone'' takes place in the aftermath of one, when almost all of the human population has been wiped out by it. This one has been caused by a virus.
