* In an episode of ''MrMeaty'', a horde of zombies advance on the eponymous fast food restaurant, substituting "meat" for "brains". The same scene also parodies this.

*** The [[Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1990 1990 remake]] actually lampshaded this when Barbara suggests that she and everybody else should just make a run for it because of how slow the zombies were.

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'''s zombies, including zombified villagers, walk like this. Their slow movement combined with their melee attacks made them strictly entry-level {{Mook}}s until an update added a swarming behavior, along with the possibility to spawn new zombies when attacked on Hard difficulty.

* Brain-dead patients or very fresh corpses will occasionally display what's called the "Lazarus sign" if the spinal cord's reflex centers are electrically stimulated. They don't stand up and walk, but the arms extend in the manner of this trope, and may then draw up to the chest in a folded position much like if a horror-movie {{Mummy}} returned to its sarcophagus after a stroll.

It's reminiscent of what you'd see if a horror-movie {{Mummy}} returned to its sarcophagus after a ZombieGait stroll.

* Zombies in ''Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' tend to be pretty slow and move in this manner. This makes them a less than useful unit, since the distance a Hero can travel on the map depends on the slowest unit in their army. Leaving them behind in garrisons, not recruiting them at all to save gold, or even converting them into the lower level but far more versatile Skeletons are all preferable to actually fielding zombies in your army. They are especially bad in the third game, since they don't have any particularly outstanding stats for their level to make up for their abysmal speed.

** In a few versions of the first game, including the remake, one of the STARS members who is slain in the mansion will become a zombie who is quite capable of sprinting, making the Zombie Gait more of a matter of freshness. The Remake capitalizes on this with a bonus mode which gives said zombie free roam of the mansion and a grenade belt.
