* CharacterOverlap
* CityOfAdventure
* EldritchAbomination
** AngelsDevilsAndSquid
* FunctionalMagic
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* OurSoulsAreDifferent
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: "Zombie" appears to be used indiscriminately in the Buffyverse to refer to a variety of types of "walking corpse that isn't a vampire":
** In "Dead Man's Party", the zombies are {{Voodoo Zombie}}s under the control of an evil spirit inhabiting a cursed mask.
** In "The Zeppo", the undead juvenile delinquents are raised by voodoo rituals, but have a RevenantZombie's independent volition and intact personality.
** In the ''Angel'' episode "The Thin Dead Line", a KnightTemplar police captain raises dead cops as {{Voodoo Zombie}}s and has them continue patrolling the streets, ignoring their tendency to gratuitous violence.
** In the ''Angel'' episode "Provider", a character becomes a RevenantZombie through, it appears, pure will to transcend death.
** In the ''Angel'' episode "Habeas Corpses", the Wolfram & Hart building's mystical security system has a last-ditch emergency mode of raising all dead employees as {{Flesh Eating Zombie}}s, to ensure the death of whoever invaded it.
