* NonIronicClown: Yes, really, with the "alcoholic party clown" character archetype. According to his bio, guy used to be an entertainer at kids' parties who enjoyed his job, and despite the ZombieApocalypse [[DrowningMySorrows hitting him pretty damn hard]], he's still doing his best to survive, help out others [[FriendToAllChildren (especially kids)]], and trying to [[SadClown bring a bit of levity to the grim realities of a zombie-plagued world]].
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: With the customizability of the zombie creation rules, it's quite possible to build some very crazy stuff. The Atlas of the Walking Dead sourcebook even provides AFMBE stats for different undead monsters from around the world, some of which have notes for retolling their statblock to represent very similar critters from elsewhere in the world.
* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: Beyond the typical confusion between "flesh-eating zombie" and "ghoul", actual stats for ghouls are provided in the Atlas of the Walking Dead.

* OurGhoulsAreCreepier: Beyond the typical confusion between "flesh-eating zombie" and "ghoul", actual stats for Arabic-style ghouls are provided in the Atlas of the Walking Dead.



* OurVampiresAreDifferent: In addition to the fact that any monster built with the zombie creation rules and feeding on blood or souls can be portrayed as a vampire, Atlas of the Walking Dead includes a large number of vampires. Most obviously are the Gothick Vampire (vampires as popularized in modern culture, ala Literature/{{Dracula}} or Literature/{{Carmilla}} or Literature/{{Interview With A Vampire}}) and the Vampire (vampires as the bestial, rapacious, gluttonous corpse-predators from European mythology), but there are also the likes of the Gyonshi, Penanggalan, Shuten-Doji and Vyrkolokas.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingWithFire: Almost player in a game where zombies need to burned, of course. For a default character, though, the Alcoholic Party Clown specializes in using a seltzer bottle and water balloons, both loaded with alcohol, to splash zombies with flammable liquid before igniting it with a lighter and fireworks. It's noted that this an extremely dangerous way to fight, especially for a drunkard, but it's subtly implied [[DeathSeeker that he doesn't really care if it goes wrong for him]].


Added DiffLines:

* SadClown: The aforementioned Alcoholic Party Clown archetype from the game's website; in the "default" archetype fluff, before the Rise, he had a beloved animal partner in the form of a performing ferret named Sparky. He first encountered zombies when they attacked a party he was playing at, where Sparky saved a kid from a zombie, but got eaten in the process. The sight still haunts him, driving him to turn to drink -- both to [[DrowningMySorrows try and dull the pain]] and to [[PlayingWithFire burn every damn zombie to cinders with gloriously flammable alcohol]].

* ''True Grit'': Four explorers found the ruined capital city of the lost Indian tribe, the Anasazi, and foolishly broke the elder signs imprisoning the EldritchAbomination, "Kinatuk -- [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Blood Thing]]", which had destroyed the Anasazi. Now free to roam the world once more, Kinatuk has begun to slaughter humans and animals alike, reviving them as zombified slaves that drip gore from their mouths. Based upon "gritty" Western movies from the 1960s and 70s, as personified by JohnWayne.

* {{Badass}}: Given this is a game about fighting off the walking dead, it's pretty easy to pull this off, under the right circumstances. The "Pulp Hero" and "Legendary Hero" character types are especially generous with character points in order to assure that a player can make themselves as badass as possible.
** BadassNormal: The "Survivor" character type is aimed to be this, though a player who manages to make themselves come off as badass, in game, while playing a Norm (the weakest of the character types) is also definately one of these.

''All Flesh Must Be Eaten'', typically abbreviated as "AFMBE", is a SurvivalHorror TabletopRolePlayingGame based around the concept of a ZombieApocalypse. Extremely modular in both character design, creature design and setting design, this has contributed to its surprising levels of popularity: not only did the corebook eventually receive a "Revised" edition with rules for converting from Unisystem to D20Modern, it spawned two books containing nothing but premade character archetypes, three books of collected fiction, a world of pre-made settings, and an array of other sourcebooks as well. These include mixing zombies with {{Pulp}}, [[{{Wuxia}} Kung-Fu]] and GunFu action, Westerns, ScienceFiction, pirates, conventional fantasy and ''wrestling''.

* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: The "Black Fleet" has swimming zombies called, variously, sirens, mermaids and shark bobbers. They're the undead forms of people who died in the water when their lower torsoes were eaten away by sharks or zombies. They can either use their entrails as CombatTentacles or use them to use to the lower half of a shark or dolphin, which combines with their illusion powers to let them disguise themselves as mermaids and lure human victims close.

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideGenreFoe: While various "deadworlds" would essentially have run the same without the ZombieApocalypse to deal with, the ''Fistful O'Zombies'' "deadworld" ''Singing Cowboys'' explicitly falls into this, with the InUniverse director of the BMovie that the Player Characters are part of shoving a ZombieApocalypse into the script with nobody else being the wiser (in an attempt to to cash in on ''both'' the RoyRogers "[[TitleDrop singing cowboy]]" type of [[TheWestern Westerns]] and the sci-fi film craze of TheFifties), and no adjustments done to the plot. As such, the rules encourage the Games Master and the players to play a LighterandSofter, DenserAndWackier, NeverSayDie type of game... [[OhCrap until]] [[CerebusSyndrome the zombies]] [[AnyoneCanDie come along]].

* ''Mein Zombie'': In the battlefields of UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, the Nazis have unleashed a new weapon: dead soldiers that are still able to move, fight and kill, and which keep on coming, blind to pain and fear, until a bullet enters their head.

* OutsideContextVillain: In many of the published "deadworlds" (set anywhere from TheMiddleAges to TheWildWest to SpaceOpera far futures), the ZombieApocalypse is something that ''nobody'' is ready for.

* ''Dial Z for Hero'': A deadworld parodying the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden]] and [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Ages of comic books]], where people who have died have mysteriously been returning as super-powered undead heroes and villains.

* ''Dead Men and Derring Do'': In 1640, France, the much-hated Cardinal Richelieu discovered a profane alchemical formula that granted him immortality -- at the cost of needing to feed upon human hearts. His own guards, horrified by the undead monster he had become, betrayed him, but they couldn't destroy him -- instead, binding him in an iron face-mask, they sealed him away in the deepest cells of the Bastille, hoping he would never be free. But, twenty years later, well-meaning swordsmen broke into the Bastille and freed "TheManInTheIronMask", and the Cardinal feasted upon their flesh and that of the prisoners, releasing a horde of zombified prisoners upon the streets of Paris. Realizing he could control these monsters, Richelieu now seeks domination over every last man, woman and child on the planet -- living or dead.
