[[WMG: Solanum is supernatural in origin and the zombies themselves are a magical curse rather than a biological virus.]]
Considering ''Literature/TheExtinctionParade'' with its vampires is ''somewhat'' in the same canon as WWZ, fantastical elements might be present in WWZ as a whole and could account for some of the extremely unrealistic elements behind the zombies despite the author aiming for realism as a focus. Why is solanum a universal poison to a vast majority of lifeforms, even stuff that logically would devour dead flesh within a week, like fungi and insects? Magic. Why don't the zombies simply tear themselves apart from day to day wear and tear from simply moving around? Magic. How can the zombie's cells even work with complete, self contained efficiency despite a lack of an energy source or means to dispose of waste? Magic. How can zombies endure things that should have obliterated their entire body and surely destroyed the brain such as deep ocean pressure (crushing them like a tin can), explosions (shock waves ripping them apart); and heat (literally cooking them due to exposure and radiation)? Magic. I know making the virus just a giant case of AWizardDidIt handwaving seems lazy, but implementing the fantastical can account for most of the outlandishness for the infected themselves.

* The hospital suite where the astronaut is being treated is also called the Presidential Suite. Australia, being a constitutional monarchy, currently doesn't have a president, so it's possible that Australia post-war has embraced republicanism.

Since it seems like zombie apocalypse might have been worth mention on DoctorWho. Realizing this the Doctor decided to mulligan the whole thing. A good 2-parter worth of adventure is had as he goes back in time, tracks down patient zero, and tries desperately to cure them before finally realizing he can't and has to kill them. It's all very The Water of Mars.

** The problem is that Tomonaga is originally from Nagasaki, while Kondo is from Sapporo. Unless Tomonaga's brother moved to that same city the odds are that this was just some random veteran.



** Well its explicitly stated that Kondo killed the guy, as he was a zombie when he broke into his apartment

** Tomonaga's statement doesn't refer to the feel of the grip. It should also be noted that Kondo describes the leather as having replaced the original sharkskin in a rather ramshackle manner. If Tomonaga ever handled his brother's sword it probably had not seen any use and would have been like standard issue swords.

* Alternately, the movie was produced In-Verse as a massive promotion ''for'' Phalanx, which is why the zombies act so differently: the screenwriters took the inaccurate term "African rabies" and ran with it.
