* Although they are not real, in an episode of ''{{Spaced}}'', "Art", Tim takes some bad speed and plays ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'', essentially making him hallucinate a zombie attack throughout the whole episode. The Twiglets he ate at the party didn't help either.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', out of ''all the possible'' cartoons, also plays with this trope. At the beginning of "Bridle Gossip", Twilight Sparkle and Spike wonder why Ponyville's streets are suddenly deserted and why everypony is locking themselves inside their houses. After pondering some possible answers, Spike decides that some kind of zombie apocalypse is going on.

Due to the threat that zombies pose (they did just become the apocalypse, after all), protagonists of more serious works are required to become very {{genre savvy}} very quickly (but will demonstrate {{genre blindness}} with regard to [[NotUsingTheZWord the word "zombie" itself]]). [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Failure is often the only option]] in these stories; [[DownerEnding rarely do they have an ending]] that could be considered "happy" by typical standards, or indeed one where [[InferredHolocaust humanity survives]] as a species. Another main staple is that things will always, ''always'' go FromBadToWorse. Either from the character's actions or circumstance which are out of their hands, no matter how improbable it is.

* The manga series, ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' features a bunch of typical high school anime characters put into a zombie apocalypse in which everybody who dies and was dead before almost immediately turns into a flesh-eating zombie. On a number of occasions, this manga pays homage to previous zombie movies and games. Notable in that the zombies are actually played as realistically as possible -- the protagonists test and figure out that since the dead have no circulation, their eyes cannot possibly work, meaning that they find things from vibrations (throwing a wet cloth at a locker on the other side of a hallway will draw them to it); no circulation also means that with the local humidity, the zombies will decay to the point of uselessness in a little under a month (although nobody has a clue how the zombies are still moving).\\\
''Highschool of the Dead'' also subverts the traditionally leftist/libertarian politics behind most zombie-themed works, and is one of the few that takes on an explicitly right-wing nationalist stance. An ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uyoku_dantai uyoku dantai]]'' group provides safe and effective harbour for survivors (whereas the "normal people" undermine it), and the military is shown to be effective at containing zombies. There are also some scenes where the characters lament the stupidity or myopic priorities of groups of anti-government radicals and protestors. Speaking of characters, the main cast includes: the rich, blue-blooded daughter of the ''uyoku dantai'' leader, an HeirToTheDojo with traditionalist YamatoNadeshiko views and styles, a gun nut trained by a Blackwater mercenary, and the daughter of a police officer (and, by extension, TheMan), while the head of the group is praised by the ''uyoku dantai'' leader for his filial piety (family loyalty). The anime had some scenes involving Saya's family altered because it became increasingly apparent to the {{Media Watchdog}}s that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical the creators were trying to make a political statement with an unpopular group]].
** The licensed English translation also tries to downplay the right-wing politics of ''Highschool of the Dead''. For instance, in one scene a character likens the Ukyou Dantai group to a mafia -- in the Japanese Saya rejects that and defends her father's group, noting how it's a force for good in the community; in the Yen Press version, however, she only growls "we're so right-wing even the mafia hate us", which quite badly distorts the original point.
