''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'', the successor to ''World at War'', includes Zombie Mode, a direct sequel to Nazi Zombies. The Hardened and Prestige editions of the game come with the four original maps from ''World at War''. The first new map revealed features UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, Robert [=McNamara=] and UsefulNotes/FidelCastro fighting an outbreak in the Pentagon. Cue the rejoicing. The subsequent maps continue the tale of the UsefulNotes/WW2 zombie fighters, as well as another tale featuring Creator/SarahMichelleGellar, Creator/DannyTrejo, Creator/RobertEnglund and Creator/MichaelRooker, [[AsHimself as themselves]] fighting another outbreak, this time out in an abandoned Siberian outpost, where they were filming a zombie movie for Creator/GeorgeRomero, who becomes the boss zombie himself. The final ''Black Ops'' map in the Nazi Zombie saga, released in the "Rezurrection" Map Pack, is called ''Moon''. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It should be no surprise where it takes place]].

The ''Zombies'' mode made a return in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'' on two fronts: the "main" first map will be ''Shadows of Evil'', a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Mob of the Dead'', set in a 1940's city-slicker environment. Four hardened criminals fight off zombies and more as they're lured into a mysterious game by an even more mysterious figure. An pre-order exclusive map, ''The Giant'', features the original crew of Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai, in a remake of fan-favorite ''World at War'' map '' Der Riese'', picking up the story from the cliffhanger ending of ''Origins''. The rest of the DLC solely revolves around the classic characters; from an icy Group 935 Castle at ''Der Eisendrachen'', a murky Japanese swamp in ''Zetsubou No Shima'', and a war-torn Stalingrad in ''Gorod Krovi''. The ''Black Ops III'' ''Zombies'' season will conclude with ''Revelations'' and bring the current StoryArc to its' conclusion.

The ''Zombies'' mode made a return in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'' on two fronts: the "main" first map will be ''Shadows of Evil'', a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Mob of the Dead'', set in a 1940's city-slicker environment. Four hardened criminals fight off zombies and more as they're lured into a mysterious game by an even more mysterious figure. An pre-order exclusive map, ''The Giant'', features the original crew of Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai, in a remake of fan-favorite ''World at War'' map '' Der Riese'', picking up the story from the cliffhanger ending of ''Origins''.

''Origins''. The rest of the DLC solely revolves around the classic characters; from an icy Group 935 Castle at ''Der Eisendrachen'', a murky Japanese swamp in ''Zetsubou No Shima'', and a war-torn Stalingrad in ''Gorod Krovi''. The ''Black Ops III'' ''Zombies'' season will conclude with ''Revelations'' and bring the current StoryArc to its' conclusion.

A tie-in ''Zombies'' comic was announced for release in October 2016 by Creator/DarkHorseComics, set to revolve around the main cast of ''Black Ops II'', last seen in ''Buried''.

To help create a better future for the universe, Maxis helps the ''Origins'' crew and directs them along their quest.]]



* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: It's heavily implied that some unseen supernatural force more powerful than Samantha, Richtofen, or Maxis is secretly behind all the zombie mayhem, but is never definitively revealed.]]
** [[spoiler:It turns out that the Apothicons, servants of Cthulhu, may be behind many of the events told in Black Ops III, including bringing Element 115 to the Earth.]]

** ''The Giant'': [[spoiler:Edward, who was central to the storyline, manipulated all the characters to further his plans and was the BigBad of the main timeline, get uncermoniously headshotted by his Origins self as part of a plan he had no idea about in the intro of the map, meaning he is the only one to not have an EasterEgg about his death.]]

** ''Zetsubou No shima'': [[spoiler:Takeo, who always went about honor and serving the Emperor, got betrayed by the very same Emperor he was following with UndyingLoyalty, was the subject of horrible experiments by Division 9 and dies by seppuku, the only way for a samurai to die with some honor.]]
** ''Gorod Krovi'': [[spoiler:Nikolai, who always joked about killing his numerous wives in violent ways and was always drunk, goes ballistic when his Origins self mention the death of their first and only wife in an air rai, something that they couldn't prevent and wracked them with guilt, tries to kill his Origins self before getting a shotgun to the face.]]

* TheBluebeard: Nikolai. [[spoiler: Subverted in Gorod Krovi, where it's revealed that Nikolai had only one wife that was killed during the war.]]



* CruelAndUnusualDeath: All the zombies end up dying in cruel ways due to the way some [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill wonder weapons and traps work]]. Of course, it's not like many people care, [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman they're brain-munching zombies!]]
** [[HighVoltageDeath The Electro-Shock Defenses]] have been a staple since Verruckt, appearing again in all WAW maps and in some Black Ops maps. They return in two maps during Black Ops III.
** The flogger is as deadly as it is hilarious - zombies who run into it [[RagdollPhysics get ragdolled a great distance away]].
** The fire pit in Kino Der Toten is crucial to certain strategies to reach high rounds.
** In Mob Of The Dead, one trap put in the way towards the Warden's office consists of two fans that [[DeadlyRotaryFan gib any zombie that passes through them.]] The other trap is located in the Cafeteria and rains ''pure acid'' into the zombies.
** Traps return in Shadows Of Evil as chains hidden in the walls that launch and shred zombies into bits.
** In Zetsubou No Shima, one trap consists of two precariously held B-17 engines, which lower down and decapitate any zombie that passes through it when activated.
*** The second trap is a turbofan embedded in a wall that [[TurbineBlender sucks zombies in and gibs them on it's rotors.]]
** In Gorod Krovi, a ''dragon'' can be used as an improvised trap. It sets determined areas of the map on fire, which destroy anything that happens to be passed through it - no matter if it's a player or a zombie.
** Most of the Wonder Weapons cause this, as they usually fire things that no one would want to get hit by.
*** The Wunderwaffe electrocutes zombies and chains lightning towards any other zombie in the vicinity.
*** The 31-79 JGb215 is a gun that shoots a ray that shrink zombies into rat-sized bobbleheads. Which you can [[GoombaStomp stomp on]] or just kick away (which is a lot funnier).
*** The Wave Gun causes a zombie's insides to expand and it to float away and [[PopGoesTheHuman eventually explode on a shower of gore.]]
*** The Sliquifier shoots a liquid that pops zombies into bits and chains similarly to the Wunderwaffe. If shot in the floer, it causes the zombies [[SlipperySkid to slip]] in hilarious manners.
*** The Apothicon Servant is an organic EldritchAbomination weapon that shoots black holes that suck in the zombies and crush them.
*** Taken to a new level with the Bows in Der Eisendrache.
**** The Lava bow traps zombies inside small lava graves, which them erupt like a volcano and burn the zombies into a crisp.
**** And then there's the Void Bow. Shooting a charged shot causes a rip in dimensions to open and mini Keeper demons to appear. They then proceed to '''EAT THE ZOMBIES ALIVE.''' Lampshaded by Dempsey.
--->'''Dempsey''': ''"Owww! That's a BAD way to go!"''

*** The Storm Bow creates an electrical tornado that grabs and electrocutes zombies. It has enough force to lift them with the electrical charge!
*** The KT-4 in Zetsubou No Shima shoots a liquid that causes spores to grow in the zombies and make them pop.
--->'''Dempsey''': ''"GET PLANTED, FLESHSORE!''"



** Later maps don't lack those even through the characters are supposed to be more serious.
--> '''Dempsey''': ''"Time to [[ThatCameOutWrong whip out my...]] little light!"''
--> '''Nikolai''': ''"Who wants to play with my monkey? Anyone?"''



** The Trasher in Zetsubou No Shima has a club for a left arm that [[OneHitKill downs players in one hit]], even with Juggernog.



* EldritchAbomination: The Apothicons.
** The Keepers as well, althrough they happen to be creatures hellbent in keeping the balance of the dimensions and aiding in the purge of the Apothicons.



** The Death Machine serves as a power-up for the rest of the ''Black Ops'' maps. As of Der Eisendrache in Black Ops III, it is also avaliable in all Black Ops III maps.
* GiantMook: Most of the "Boss Zombies" fall into this category, including George Romero, Brutus (aka the Warden), the Panzer Soldat, the Margwa and the Trasher.

** In Zetsubou No Shima, the [[HandCannon Marshall]] [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter 16]] Dual Wield is avaliable from the mistery Box. Each one kills zombies with one shot until ''round 31''. It is currently the weapon with the second highest damage per shot of all bullet-firing weapons.
** In Gorod Krovi, the GKZ-45 Mk. III are basically two experimental weapons: one that fires clouds that slow down zombies, similar to the Paralyzer, and a Ray Gun Mark III in the other hand. Firing the Ray Gun into the cloud of the GKZ turns the cloud into a Gersch Device-like black hole. The NX Shadowclaw automatic crossbow is also avaliable in Dual Wield version.

** In Shadows of Evil, you make some sort of Edritch Abomination gun that shoots black holes. It's like having ten Gersch Devices!
** In Der Eisendrache, it is possible to obtain a bow by feeding three dragons. The bows can be upgraded to bows that draw in power from elements: the [[ShockAndAwe Storm Bow]], the [[NightOfTheLivingMooks Void Bow]], the [[NobleWolf Wolf Bow]] and the [[KillItWithFire Lava bow.]] The Storm Bow creates a electrical tornado that electrocutes anything in it's vicinity, the Void Bow summons mini demons that '''EAT THE ZOMBIES ALIVE''', the Wolf Bow smites the zombies and slows down the others, and the Lava Bow traps them in a volcano.
