''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.

* 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 {{Dracula}} or {{Carmilla}} or {{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.

* NonIronicPartyClown: 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]].

* ''Once Upon A Corpse In China'': In ancient China, rivalry between martial arts schools has taken a very deadly turn. Livid at the skill of the Flowering Lotus School, and incensed that it openly accepted and trained women in the martial arts, the five most locally powerful schools of the martial arts (the Striking Snake, the Golden Tiger, the Striking Crane, the Flying Dragon, the Fighting Monkey) banded together to murder its teachers and destroy the school. Now the five Li Sisters have returned as vengeful zombies, and are working to raise an army of martial artist zombie women, and with them slay all the men in China. Already, the Striking Snake school has fallen... Inspired by generic "chop-sockey" high-flying kung-fu-action films.
