* ''How To Survive the End of the World'' from National Geographic actually had an episode called '''Zombie Earth''' and rather the graves, the mutation of the Rabies Virus was used thanks to similarly to what this case would look like.

** There is also a subversion to the rule that the zombies don't fight each other, but it happens so rarely that you may not see it at all at first.

* In Creator/RobertMccammon's ''Literature/TheyThirst'', Los Angeles is overtly taken over by a VampireMonarch and his servants. With each person bitten becoming a new vampire. He uses a magical device that creates a perpetual sandstorm around the city to keep people inside during the day, while at night the vampires raid homes. By the end of the book, there are hundreds of thousands of vampires.

* In Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Reanimator'', Dr. Herbert West devises a chemical that will bring dead people back to life. Unfortunately the subjects either die (again) within minutes or turn into flesh-eating creatures that share more that a slight resemblance with your average zombie (they retain normal human strength and speed though). He eventually get better at reanimating, creating an intelligent zombie who can reanimate more bodies. The intelligent zombie then [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters leads an army of other zombies to kill Dr. West.]]

* ''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 by everyone south of the Neck (The North still seems to believe that the White Walkers actually existed). 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, which they have been doing since the Long Night. Seemingly there is nothing that is able to stop the White Walkers and the Wights can only be killed by fire, dragonglass, or Valyrian steel. 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.

* ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'' has Knox County being overrun by zombies with you in the middle of it. Developers state in later versions of the game, later (provided you survived that long) the zombies spread worldwide, with repercussions ingame such as no electricity for ovens or refrigerators.

Developers state in later versions of the game, later (provided you survived that long) the zombies spread worldwide, with repercussions ingame such as no electricity for ovens or refrigerators. It uses straight-up Creator/MaxBrooks rules: no fast infected, no special zombies, no zombified animals, and a single bite will always infect, no exceptions.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' has a variant in which each individual "zombie" is [[spoiler:a copy of an EldritchAbomination with the power to easily destroy the world. In the seventh volume, the [[BigBad White Queen]] demonstrates the ability to turn humans into copies of herself by biting them, with the copies being fully subservient to her. Though unlike most Zombie Apocalypses, she can't infect just anyone - she can only infect humans with an innate disposition to being easily possessed by spirits]].
* The first volume of ''Literature/MyVampireOlderSisterAndZombieLittleSister'' is about the eponymous sisters trying to prove which of their two races is stronger, by starting two warring pandemics of their respective infections (in {{Cyberspace}}, to avoid crossing the MoralEventHorizon).
* ''LightNovel/TheWeaknessOfBeatriceTheLevelCapHolySwordswoman'' has the invasion of Ground's Nir by the Underworld. The zombies of ''every single person who's ever died in Ground's Nir'' make up the invading army, and every casualty only adds to their ranks. On top of that, the zombies [[ResurrectiveImmortality can never be permanently killed]].

Another common staple of the Zombie Apocalypse is that the zombies are often not the most dangerous enemy that a survivor will face. It's usually other survivors, power-hungry maniacs or regular-hungry people who want to [[DisasterScavengers attack you to get at your food and shelter]]. Expect an aesop about how HumansAreTheRealMonsters to be thrown about (after all, a zombie is just a degraded human!)
