* The ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' games are rather fond of zombies, and gives them amusing names like Gilbert Gastric, Daisy Dismay, and Mr. Fleshcage. The third game even had them quote a recurring line from ''Shaun of the Dead'' as a tribute, because ''Time Splitters 2'' had a cameo in the film (as the FPS game that Ed and Shaun play).
* ''VideoGame/{{Blood}}'', a game created around horror movie tropes, had its fair share of zombies (the tougher variety's appearance taken directly from Romero's ''Night of the Living Dead''). In the sequel, living dead were replaced by people taken over by supernatural wormlike parasitic beings.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' series has its ubiquitous, iconic [[PersonalSpaceInvader Headcrabs]] and the zombies they create when they attach themselves to a suitable host and commandeer its nervous system. Although incapable of infecting others directly, they otherwise behave identically to Romero zombies (ZombieGait, mindless, dangerous in numbers, prone to InfernalRetaliation et cetera). In the original game they were weak and somewhat annoying enemies, rarely present in more than small groups. In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' and its Episodes however they cause ''two'' instances of this trope:

* Like ''A Song of Ice and Fire'' above, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' suggests 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 to overrun Westeros and seemingly there is nothing that is able to stop them.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', wights are undead zombies created by and under the command of the Others, which are essentially ice demons. Wights have blue-glowing eyes and are particularly vulnerable to fire. Wildlings north of the Wall, where the Others are located, burn their dead to prevent them from returning as wights. As the series begins, Others are becoming more aggressive and amassing large armies of wights, seemingly in preparation for an invasion of the kingdoms to the south.

And what's worse, absolutely ''nobody'' down south is preparing for it because as far as they're concerned, the Others are just made-up. Boy are they in for a surprise.

* ''Comicbook/HarleyQuinn'' Volume 3 start with "Coney Island" invaded by zombie. Their origin? An alien named Vertigax crash-landing on a farm and disguising himself as a cow, who accidentally gets butchered. After the meat-process, we see that Vertigax has been shipped all over as various meat products (particularly Coney Island hot dogs), contaminating everyone who eats him. This, naturally, results in zombies.

* An episode of ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' was a homage to Russo's work, with an asteroid blowing everyone up à la the nuclear bomb from the movie. This episode had NegativeContinuity.
* ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' is about a group of teenagers who're forced to escape their school as it quickly becomes overrun by zombies, during a sudden and unexplained outbreak. But they quickly learn that their school was [[OutOfTheFryingPan only the beginning.]] Yet, despite the grim sounding nature of its narrative, it's often offset by bits of comedy and {{fanservice}}.
* Spoofed in an episode of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''. Alien toothaches are contagious, and if the sufferer bites three or four people, the pain will go away. In short order the entire classroom is filled with crazed teenagers with swollen faces and a burning need to bite each other and any non-infected that they can. It's like a very silly Zombie Apocalypse.

with an asteroid blowing everyone up à la the nuclear bomb from constant threat of humanity being devoured by a mindless horde of humanoid creatures being only one problem. Dot Pixis repeatedly predicts that humanity will be its own worst enemy, with food shortages and limited space creating ever-present dangers of starvation or civil war.

* Parodied in the [[MonsterMash Thriller Bark arc]] of ''Manga/OnePiece'', where pretty much every single zombie convention is shattered. Here, zombies can move pretty quick, they get tired, they have resorted to fighting each other on a couple occasions, and bite from them has no effect; plus, the giant zombie is actually [[LightningBruiser the fastest one of the bunch.]] However, this does make sense considering these zombie are made by implanting the personality and move set of a living person into a specially modified corpse.
