Super Mario Bros. features a short, slightly pudgy, Italian plumber with a noted ability for high-jumping and his equally skillful brother venturing through vast, often absurd, lands populated by phallic vermin, talking bipedal turtles, sentient fire-breathing flytraps, shy ghosts, mushroom capped midgets, tiny-rhinos, literally flying fish, velociraptors that are born with a saddle and almost everything in between while trying to rescue a cutesy, pink-clad princess from a giant turtle-oni-dinosaur-monster king and his equally weird eight children; while consuming mushrooms, flowers, leaves, herbs, plumes, stars and more recently acorns that somehow grant them super powers. It just doesn't get any weirder than that... Until you turn to the RPG series.
Parasite Eve 2 has the GOLEM, which are human enhanced with cybernetics and advanced weaponry (from laser swords, toxin injectors to grenade launchers), kept in stasis and only awakened when needed. They shamble around slowly like zombies when not in attack mode. The Knight and Bishop variants have camouflage which means they can turn invisible to sneak up on you. So ... ninja, zombie and robot, 3 out of 4. Not bad, eh?
Ninja-Pi-Ro(playable here) a flash game by Pencil Kids, which shares (with the lack of one word) this trope's title. This trope is also its only apparent reason for existence
Halo is heavy in this trope (more so in the books) due to the Jackals, or Kig-Yar: a series of dinosaur-like aliens that travel around raiding vessels for goods to sell, like pirates(!). They're also employed by the overtly religious Covenant as special-forces soldiers and (in one case) as specialized assassins, making them a troperiffic race of Ninja Priest Commando Dinosaur Space Pirates. Wow.
They got rebreather systems apparently replacing the lower part of their faces. Oh yes, and it seems their skin is dessicated.
Then there's the Avatar, which can scrap the weapons of other Nod vehicles to use itself. This makes for a laser-flamethrower-CLOAKED-and-cloakdetecting humongous Mecha. With an extra laser cannon for good measure.
This trope is named for one of the familiars in Kingdom of Loathing. Familiar was named for a clan of exactly the same name.
Killer7. An old senile hitman, who spends the duration of the story getting raped by his maid, with seven split personalities which can manifest into the real world fighting suicide bomber zombie things who are really happy all the time. The split personalities are comprised of a black guy with resurrection powers, a badass anime stereotype with a revolver that can shoot energy balls, Mexican Tommy Vercetti with super jumping powers and the ability to fire a weapon upside down without breaking his elbow, a blind Chinese gangsta kid who can run really freaking fast and dual-wields pistols sideways, a sniper chick who really really likes blood, a mute albino knife freak who can turn invisible, and a macho libre wrestler.
For the combination of mundane and awesome, you can't beat Kingdom Hearts. Disney and Square Enix sounds like an unlikely combination, until you sit down and play it. Which of the 2 companies is mundane and which is awesome is up to you.
Rayman 2: the Great Escape comes extremely close to containing a literal version of this trope - the standard enemies are Robot Pirates, their Elite Mooks are Ninja Robot Pirates, and some versions of the game contain Zombie Robot Pirates... but sadly no Zombie Ninja Robot Pirates.
Lunar Knights among other things contains a light-dark-ice elemental robotic giant enemy crab controlled by a vampire and powered by said vampire, a solar flamethrower gun slinging vampire hunter, and a multi-tailed fox that is the embodiment of ice on the earth.
Robot pirate ghosts are the major antagonists of Quest for Booty.
...the 4th gives us both zombie and ghost robots... ...sometimes both. Yes, robot zombie ghosts.
... the PS3 entry gives us a fleet of actual robot space pirates... and they return in the sequel, as ghost robot space pirates. ...As well as Captain Qwark's 'Mission Briefing' for Zordoom Prison "...And an entire school of Zombie Ninja Panda Bears" Unfortunately there weren't any, there were however Goldfish Heavily Armed Robotic Commandos.
...The 2nd and 3rd games' lawn gnome ninjas.
Almost all of the weapons in Painkiller are this Improbably Cool. Unless you're one of the title's Puzzle Bosses, you do not argue with the chaingun-plus-rocket launcher. As Ben Croshaw said, "all you really need to know is that there's a gun that shoots shurikens and lightning. I wish I could make something like that up. It shoots shurikens and lightning; it could only be more awesome if it had tits and was on fire."
Orevore Courier features pirates vs. zombies IN SPACE.
TimeSplitters worked on monkeys, robots and zombies being cool on their own in the first two games, but descended into madness by the third, with zombie monkeys, robot monkeys and ninja monkeys (and a pirate).
His later review of Painkiller, specifically the particular projectiles launched by a certain weapon. "Shurikens and lightning!"
Gungrave is built around this. If Gungrave: Overdose didn't feature Rocketbilly Redcadillac - a rockabilly ghost possessing an electricity-shooting guitar - I wouldn't have bought it. Did I mention it's all designed by the creator of Trigun?
Another mod for Half-Life, Afraid Of Monsters, has this too. Not as blatant as the above mod, but one enemy in it is a giant flickering ghost alien Nightmare Face that shoot homing bees with a childish laughter. But it's all okay, because it is only one of many hallucinations in the mod.
Disgaea has all four: Ninjas (especially Yukimaru, zam), Pirates (in the Item Worlds of D2, which can include both Zombie Pirates and Ninja Pirates), Zombies (including one with a "horse's wiener"...what?) and Robots (THURSDAY!, the Robot Buddy of Captain Gordon, Defender of Earth!)
However, Mother 3 takes this trope and deconstructs it. In the second half of the game, most of the enemies are Mix-and-Match Critters or mechanized animals created by the Pigmasks. It really makes you want to kill their leader that much more.
And the sequel is set to feature chainsaw bayonet duels. Responses are very similar to the Calvin and Hobbes example, I.E. "This is so cool!" or "This is so stupid."
2 and 3 introduce the Lambent, a semi-sentient Zombie Apocalypse. You can chainsaw an exploding zombie alien. Yes.
Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. And it doesn't stop at those two. There are other teams like robots, zombies, and aliens.
Some of us thought we were seeing things when we saw the first trailers for Lego Star Wars.
Para World probably takes the prize for this trope. Where to begin? Among others, the units available include ninjas, voodoo doctors who can restore you to life after you die, pirates who come from the same clan as the aforementioned ninjas, a guy who destroys buildings by headbutting them- buildings, now!-, a catapult that shoots raptor eggs that hatch on impact and attack the nearest living creature, a guy with a gatling gun- made of [[Bamboo Technology wood]]-, vikings, amazon warriors, a guy who kills himself with snakes as his main form of attack, and, oh, yes, jetpack vikings. The dinosaurs have upgrades ranging from adding blades onto their tusks to drugging them up so that they don't take damage until the high wears off. Attempts to describe any battles that occur in this game- which is, surprisingly, subpar even with all this- are entertaining, to say the least. "Then his submarine dinosaur sank my flamethrower ship!"
The Oneechanbara stars Aya, a Japanese girl who is decked out in a cowboy hat and bikini who uses a katana to fight zombies commanded by her evil half-sister who killed her father. Add to this the fact that part of the gameplay involves her getting soaked in blood (which triggers an Unstoppable Rage) and there's an unlockable costume that is exactly the same of the original - but made of black leather. And a red scarf.
In sequels, her Cute BruiserLittle Miss Badass half-sister makes a Heel–Face Turn and joins up with her, after Aya rescues her from another, more legitimately evil Big Bad. Said sister fights in a seifuku, and uses a combination of a katana and throws powerful enough to dismember zombies. It's probably easier to name the things in the series that don't run on this or the standard Rule of Cool.
Dino Crisis 2 and Dino Crisis 3. The former with a giganatosaurus as the Big Bad that nearly sets of a pre-historic nuclear holocaust, farting, poisonous Oviraptors, and Black Ops teenagers with rifles that shoot exploding disc saws. The latter has mutant, hammer-headed velociraptors that can turn invisible and shoot electricity bolts at you, lavaral, insectoid Giganotosauruses, that, if allowed to mature, turn into two-headed, armored Giganotosauruses, zombie T-Rexes, spiky Spinosaur things that shoot acid, and space marines. If you don't think that's cool, NOTHING IS.
Not too long ago, there was a low-budget game that would have been completely forgettable if it hadn't been titled Ninjabread Man.
Shadow Pirates in Metroid Prime. In addition to the baseline coolness of Space Pirates, they turn invisible, drop from the ceiling, dodge missiles and fight with swords. That sounds like a ninja to me.
The second entry to the prime series is home to 'Space Pirate Commandos' and their 'Dark Space Pirate Commando' counterparts, who have a teleporting ability akin to some depictions of ninjas.
We also have Ridley, who is a dragon space pirate. Who then is turned into a cyborg. Who then becomes undead and mutated. Who is also technically an alien. And who can turn invisible in Super Metroid. So, that's an Mutated Zombie Cyborg Alien Dragon Ninja Space Pirate. Or, in other words, a literal Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot.
The various Expansion Packs of The Sims 2 introduce a new paranormal creature each, which can frequently be combined. In order of release: half-alien hybrids, zombies, vampires, robots, werewolves, Plantsims, Bigfoot, Genies (NPCs, unfortunately) and witches. There is even a user-made challenge for The Sims 2 that revolves around making a half-alien sim into a zombie-vampire-werewolf-plantsim-witch/warlock.
The Sims 3 unfortunately doesn't allow the rampant supernatural hybridization of its predecessor, but you can now have playable ghost versions of many of the available supernaturals.
Captain Falcon of F-Zero fame is part racecar driver, part bounty hunter. It doesn't hurt that he actually IS badass.
Then there's Bio Rex, a beer-drinking dinosaur racecar driver, and Billy, a money-obsessed chimpanzee racecar driver.
Final Fantasy V has Faris, a pirate, who can become a Ninja via one of the Fire Crystal's shards; there also exists a status effect called Zombie, so it's easy enough to make Faris a Ninja Pirate Zombie.
The Parella tribe from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword resemble a mix between a seahorse, a squid, a jellyfish, and coral. The Kikwis in the same area like a cross between potatoes with shrubs on their backs, with a beak and small eyes that make them look somewhat like a penguin. They hide by covering their bodies with the shrubs on their backs, similar to how the edible part of a potato plant is part of the root and the rest is poisonous.
The dungeon mini boss for the Sandship and Sky Keep is a robot skeleton pirate. The Sandship itself is an aversion, however; it's a sea ship that happened to get stuck in sand after the region it's in dried up into a desert, with Link having to visit the past with time-warping Timeshift Stones to access the lush past and to be able to sail the sea that is dried up in the present.
The FPS Darkwatch: Curse of the West puts you in the shoes of a vampire cowboy.
World of Warcraft manages a few of these, the most notable definitely being the Lich King, a human-orc-ghost-zombie-shaman-paladin-death knight-necromancer-Physical God. Although admittedly he/they haven't been quite all of those at once. Lesser examples include the original death knights, orc warlock ghosts put into human bodies.
It is possible to create a Ninja Pirate Zombie (a Forsaken rogue wearing certain pirate-y items) and give him the Engineering profession, allowing him to create robotic baby dragons that act as short-term battle pets. Unfortunately, full-on Ninja Pirate Robot Zombie action is not possible (yet).
Wot LK gave us the Death Knight (an undead vampiric melee/caster hybrid) and Cataclysm Worgen (Werewolves by another name). Throw in the chopper mount, and you get a WerewolfVampireBikerMagic Knight. Talk about awesome!
Actually one instance in Wrath of the Lich King already introduced zombie giant viking werewolves, the Ymirjar Dusk Shamans.
Dragons have been getting this a lot in the game. It started with the Scourge's undead Frost Wyrms, then expanded to include a demonic-skeleton-dragon.
Cataclysm takes the cake though. As Nefarian and Onyxia have both acted as spies and assassins in human nations, they are now ninja-zombie-cyborg-dragons.
Any Draenei who completes the Avast Ye, Admiral! quest is an Alien Pirate. Unfortunately, Draenei can't be ninjas.
Draenei players never roll need when they shouldn't? Since when?
Perhaps the penultimate example was Blizzard's response to a number of beta-testers complaining that a zone in Cataclysm was not "epic" enough. Blizzard promptly inserted Epicus Maximus, a flying shark with a laser on it's head being ridden by a T-rex being ridden by an undead shredding a guitar that was also an axe.
There's also Ivy, his estranged white-haired daughter who is a busty scantily clad dominatrix alchemist countess who fights with a sword that turns into a whip.
Yoshimitsu is a Robin Hood type suicidal Ninja FROM SPACE!, whose wooden arm is powered by "gears". In the Tekken series, his successor started out with a bionic arm, then took a liking for cyborg parts, and through his buddy Dr. B became a full-on Cyborg Ninja by Tekken 3.
The enemies in Dead Space are Mutant Space Zombies.
And there are Mutant Space Zombie Babies.
Some of the weapons are also like this, such as the Ripper, which is essentially a Laser-guided Kinetic Buzzsaw Launcher.
Auron, from Final Fantasy X, is a ghost-zombie/samurai. And if that's not enough, he is also either a magician or a demon, considering his power to kill things to death. Or with fire.
Bloodrayne anyone? Half-vampire fighting (with a chain gun, elbow blades and metal stiletto spikes) insectazoid swamp monsters, zombies, deformed werewolfy vampires, many types of Nazis (aside from normal Nazis - Magic Nazi, Mad Scientist Nazi, Indentical Psysically-linked Twin Nazis, Cyborg Nazi, Nazi Priest with pulpit that has machine guns attached, Fire Breathing Nazi, Ninja Nazi, Demonically Possessed Nazis, Double Agent Half-Vampire Tibetan Nazi) and a giant skeletal mega-vampire. Rayne also has slow-mo and "aura-vision".
The franchise is wrought with these. There's Blastoise, the water jet cannon tortoise, Scyther, the human-sized mantis ninja raptor with scythes for arms, Ho-oh, the rainbow-forming phoenix, Exploud, the organ boombox hippo, Gliscor, the scorpion bat crab, Golurk, the clay-sculpted ghost-possessed Giant Mecha that flies with rockets, Chandelure, the fire-spewing soul-sucking chandelier, Vanilluxe, the sentient Siamese ice cream cone, Genesect, the resurrected prehistoric bipedal insect transformer with a cannon on its back, Vespiquen, a combination of a bee and a battleship with a touch of European royalty, Sigilyph, a Psychic Totem Pole Demon with Western Art worked in...
Reuniclus is a psychic-powered homunculus tardigrade amoeba shaped like a teddy bear surrounded by cytoplasm and organelle arms aligned to look like a meter for volume that it often uses to manipulate the speed of everything in its environment. Oh yeah, it's based on a fetus too.
Originally, the Deino line was supposed to be a family of cybernetic dragons, with the final evolution being a cyber dragon tank. They decided to go with an Orochi motif instead, but Hydreigon still has tanktread markings on its belly as an homage to this concept.
Many people forget that the subtitle for Joe & Mac is "Caveman Ninja".
When Gaia Online was still developing its MMO, zOMG!, this was mentioned as a selling point of the ring system: players can mix and match different abilities. Equipping a specific set of four rings on one hand results in a Ring Set that provides a status buff. The sets have labels such as Athlete, Chef, Demon... and yes, even Ninja and Pirate. And yes, you can have two ring sets active at once.
Tribes: Vengeance: the assassin Mercury is a Cybrid... an actual ZOMBIE CYBORG NINJA... who even proves this by getting shot in the face and still being able to fight. Also, he has a jetpack and access to the usual insane weapons of Tribes.
The bosses of Persona 4 probably count. To put it simply the most mundane one is a cyborg/detective/mad scientist with toy lasers and a jet pack (oh and a pimpin' police hat).
We've also got a ninja man-frog, a dominatrix wearing a bright yellow Klan hood being held up by three Japanese schoolgirls, a giant phoenix who's also a princess, a giant homosexual who attacks with two golden male symbols, a nulticolored stripper with a satellite dish for a head, a colossal nihilistic teddy bear, a fetus that can turn itself into an old-school game character, the father of all New Age Retro Hippies, and last but not least, a disco eyeball that shoots frickin' laser beams. Oh, and we've got the Japanese goddess of death, but that kinda pales in comparison.
The unlockable Nazi Zombies mode in Call of Duty: World at War consists of you and up to three friends fending off hordes of Nazi zombies. And you can fight them off with a Ray Gun, chain-lightning-style Wunderwaffen, or, in the latest downloadable map, monkey bombs. Yes, exploding monkey toys.
And shortly after him, you come face-to-face with Mecha Birdo. Half Birdo, half Ikaruga boss. Who spits climbable egg-shaped warheads at you, attacks with swarms of Shy Guys, and shoots eye lasers at you.
The Lost Vikings stars three vikings on a Time Travel adventure. In the sequel, the vikings gain cybernetic equipment, in addition to being accompanied by a dragon and a werewolf.
The Metal Slug series features many goofy contraptions, including animals with vulcan cannons strapped to their backs, but one particular boss, Big Shiee can accurately be described as a "land-battleship".
A later installment features what is essentially a land-sub.
At the end of Metal Slug 3 you get to fight blood-spewing zombie clones created by the Martians, in a game that lets you ride an ostrich and an elephant, and has you fight also "normal" zombies, yetis, mummies, robots, UFOs, man-eating plants, huge locusts, crabs, snails and pillbugs and what looks like some kind of Aztec god that shoots energy wolves!
The Baldur's Gate series makes a decent attempt at the Trope, if you create your character to be a Half-God/Half-Human/Half-Elf (Seriously, just don't ask how they worked that one out) Fighter/Mage/Thief.
Neverwinter Nights goes down a similar route, except that the Character isn't a Demi-God but can instead choose a combination of 3 classes from a potential list of about 20. Half-Orc Barbarian/Sorcerer/Assassin, anyone?
Excitebots: Trick Racing features robotic animals and bugs that race on wheels, but they can also race on foot when given the right power-up.
Figaro Castle of Final Fantasy VI is a steampunk land-sub castle that can travel under mountains to another part of a continent. The king, Edgar, is a womanizing chainsaw, crossbow, drill, and sword wielding man who eventually can use magic. As for his brother...
And the Phantom Train. An undead train. That Sabin, Edgar's brother and a member of the royal family of Figaro, can SUPLEX!
After you beat the final boss, you fly to the Celestial Plain in a 200-year old bishounen's spaceship. The bishounen is from the moon.
Oh, you think that's crazy? Waka is a: French-speaking, Japanese, bishounen from the moon who dual wields a laser sword and a katana (or other similar type of sword), he's a prophet, and he owns a spaceship.
Gaul in The Legend of Spyro is, in short, a Dual Wielding spellcaster baboon with a laser eye. And he steals all your mana before you fight him. No wonder he's the ape king. Love or hate the series, you have to admit that's just awesome.
City of Heroes can be described as "anything goes." There are demon-worshipping gangs, dark magic gangs, cyborg zombies, psychic robots, living blobs of algae, mutated homeless cultists with alien weaponry, genetically engineered facist werewolves and vampires, cybernetically enhanced anarchists, steampunk soldiers led by a 200 year old Magnificent Bastard, and an Animal Wrongs Group made of living plants and rocks. And that's only some of the hero side.
The Halloween Town zone of Salamanca is populated by witches, walking scarecrows, magic wookiees, ghosts, and magic gnomes who feed on the others' anger. They also have a Stock Ness Monster in their lake.
Sometimes more than one of these combined into a single character. Imperishable Night, for example, features a psychic moon rabbit as a boss, and Perfect Cherry Blossom has a dual katana wielding half-ghost gardener samurai.
The Battle For Wesnoth is by and large avoids this trope by keeping it relatively accurate in depicting Medieval Fantasy themes, but then came the Drakes. The Drakes can simply be described as Magical Samurai Dragon Blacksmiths that had Swimming Lizards Wielding Spears and Magic for allies.
The MMORPG Guild Wars expansion Eye of the North introduced the Norn, who are Russian Amazon Viking Bear-people. Even better, they will be a playable race in Guild Wars 2.
The Aqua Teen Hunger Force videogame plays with this trope in the title: Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. There don't appear to be any zombies or ninjas involved in the actual game (apart from one mummy), although robot turkeys, psychotic shifter wrenches, and machine-gun toting tulips do appear in various stages.
Those are actually characters from the show. "Tulip Sniper" who uses a machine gun, Turkatron who is somehow related to the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future, and the giant wrenches who abducted Dusty Gazongas. Also, you left out the name "Aqua Teen Hunger Force", as they are in no way water-related, they're not teens, they don't fight hunger (anymore), and they've ceased to be a force of anything except hilarity/stupidity.
Darkstalkers. A fighting game in 1994 by Capcom? Check. Cast consists of monsters? Check. One of the characters is a Catgirlnun who fights entirely nude? Check. Another character is an Australian zombie that plays heavy metal and blows up dinosaurs with the power of rock-and-roll named Lord Raptor? Check.
In ADOM, one unique monster is an undead dwarven chaos berserker.
Castle Crashers! As you make your way across the ocean of peril, and salt water, you're ambushed by Ninja Pirates.
WET is seemingly the result of this trope in action — apparently, someone decided that a video game that combines the gunplay and acrobatics of 80s-90s Hong Kong action films with the aesthetics of the grindhouse films and drive-in B movies of the 70s would be completely awesome.
The Mega Man franchise, full stop. Its myriads of mechanoids are often a combination of a robot and something else. The classic series alone has a robot ninja and a robot pirate, as separate boss characters. Also a robot vampire and his robot zombie mooks. Additional examples include an Egyptian Pharaoh Robot, a Skeleton Robot, a King Robot, a UFO Robot, a Japanese Demon Robot, and two instances of Vehicle Transformer Robots, just to name a few.
The second Mega Man Star Force game stretches this to its limits; depending on what game you choose, you can become a sentient waveform ninja, knight, or dinosaur. And you can also temporarily turn into a combination of two of the three - or, depending on your waveband Brothers, a combination of all three. There were also plans to include a pirate tribe, but unfortunately, uh, they didn't make it.
And these aren't just normal ninjas, dinosaurs or knights. Saurians are dinosaurs on fire, Zerkers are electric knights, and Ninjas are, well... ninjas with a plant motif.
Mega Man himself fits perfectly. He's a robot who shoots plasma, scissors, electricity, fire, boomerangs, more fire (atomic, no less!), bombs, more bombs (crash bombs, no less!), tornadoes, more tornadoes, robotic bees, shurikens, diamonds, miniature stars, bubbles made of lead, lasers, black holes, tomahawk hatchets, magnets, and more. His dog also turns into a jetpack, a surfboard, a submarine, a spacecraft, a motorcycle, or a spring..
Aforementioned Ninja Robot, according to his official game backstory, is not only possibly alien in nature, but rides a robotic frog . . . yes, this makes Shadow Man a Robotic Frog-Riding Alien Ninja Robot, whether the frog is also alien is unknown.
Speaking of aliens in the Mega Man series, the Robot Masters of Mega Man V for the Gameboy are all confirmed alien in origin, this gives us such combinations as Venus the Alien Anthropomorphic Crab Robot, and Pluto the Alien Were Cat Robot.
Ninja Baseball Bat Man features a group of 4 robot ninjas dressed in baseball gear, and fighting with baseball bats. Not only that, but most of the enemies are baseball related. From fighting baseballs, baseballl gloves, pumpkins wielding bats, baseball bats wielding bats, playing cards, & dogs carrying Tommy guns. And that's not the tip of the whackiness in this game.
Runescape has a lot of these. Ninja monkeys, zombie monkeys, zombie pirates, among other things. Oh, and there is a pirate zombie robot boss.
With the correct item loadouts, you can have a black scottish cyclops zombie pirate samurai, zombie robot russian mobster, or a crossdressing german mad scientist. Who is a zombie. All depending on your item loadout.
Hakumen from BlazBlue is a robot ghost samurai who may qualify for zombie because of his near-death as Jin.
Makoto is a squirrel girl who mixes dimension-crosser, boxer, ninja, and secret agent elements and makes it all work.
OMG Pirates! is a popular game for the iPhone, where you play a ninja taking revenge on the pirates who destroyed his village. The pirates use various forms of anachronistic (and awesome) piratey tech such as a rum-powered Jet Pack / flamethrower.
In Scribblenauts Unlimited, typing the exact trope name works too.
Quite a few bosses in Alundra 2. It has such things as: a giant firebreathing cyborg cat, cyborg minotaur, giant robot spider, huge crocodile with a giant mushroom growing on it's back, orange shark with vacuum-powers, statues based on egyptian gods with laser eyes, heart of a robot whale which has huge drill on it's snout, anthropomorphic tiger which can turn itself invicible, cyborg mantis with a monocle, purple cyborg pirate gorilla and lastly, a robot warlock with deattachable head.
Robot Unicorn Attack: It's a robot, and it's a unicorn! And it has rainbows! And fairies, and stars, and dolphins... it's also one of the most addictive flash games you can play.
Billy Vs SNAKEMAN features a villagenote The in-game equivalent of a clan-level subgame, entitled Zombjas.
It's worth discussing in some detail how you go about starting Zombjas: Your village can have, for the purposes of maintaining headcount and collecting resources, Biological Robot versions of Ninjas, call Nonjas. The Village Leader can choose to inject a Nonja, with unleashes a Zombja horde, which the village then fights off. In other words, the minigame is started when a Robot Ninja becomes a Zombie Ninja. You heard that right: a Robot Ninja becomes a Zombie Ninja in order for this minigame to happen. All that's missing is a Pirate element, and you'd have the quadfecta[?].
Trauma Team has in its main cast a ninjaprincess — well, technically just the heir to a ninja clan, rather than a "true" princess, but it works out to the same thing — endoscopic surgeon.
One of the Halloween event mice appearing in MouseHunt, a collecting game on Facebook, is a "zombot unipire", apparently created purely to invoke this trope. Also, to give their artist the rare opportunity to draw a fanged corpse-faced cyborg mouse with a spiral horn on its forehead.
Guess who are the main stars in the Zombie mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops? John F Kennedy, Robert Mcnamara, Richard Nixon and Fidel Castro? You heard that right, JFK, Mcnamara, Nixon and Castro fighting zombies!
The Big Bad is a zombie who pilots a giant robot that shoots fire and ice, and throws RVs; there's a zombie dolphin trainer who leaps over your plants (well, most of them anyway) with an undead dolphin, a zombie football player, a zombie Michael Jackson impersonator that summons backup dancers, a zombie suicide bomber mental patient, a zombie businessman whose Berserk Button is having his newspaper destroyed (when he's so close to finishing his Sudoku), and others.
The time-travel themed sequel, Plants Vs. Zombies II, has zombie mummies, zombie pirates with zombie parrots, zombie cowboys, zombie cowboys riding robot bulls, zombie chickens, zombie-piloted mecha, and zombies with jetpacks.
Gruntilda Winkybunion of the Banjo-Kazooie series seems to fall deeper into this trope with each subsequent game. In Banjo-Tooie she turns into a Zombie Witch, in Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge she appears as a Robot Ghost Witch, and in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, not only is Gruntilda now a zombie head in a robot body, but during the final battle attacks the heroes on a pirate ship, thus making her a Pirate Zombie Robot Witch.
Grunty has a number of more mundane titles she can add to her name as well, including Captain (Rusty Bucket Bay), CEO (Grunty Industries), Aviator (Banjo Pilot), and Mechanic (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts).
The second game has mobster pirate zombies as your enemies, and a ninja mobster pirate zombie who was also a cowboy back in the day as a boss.
The third game has cowboy zombies as your enemies, one cowboy zombie werewolf, and a ninja cowboy zombie as a boss.
Class and equipment customization options make this possible in any Golden Sun title.
Sveta in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn is a Badass Adorable kung-fu Wind Adept werewolf princess by storyline alone. Add the aforementioned class or equipment options, and she can get even more strange... and more awesome.
The player character of Blood, Caleb, is an ageless zombie cowboy. His partners in the second game include a zombie former frat girl, a zombie former circus freak and another zombie cowboy-turned-woman in medieval armor with a cajun accent.
Nin˛-Jump takes this trope to the extreme: all of the enemies are ninjas crossed with a number of other things.
Bug! has the first boss, a snail. Or should I say, helicopter-bomber-cowboy snail- it flies with a rotor and drops bombs from its shell. And if Bug is too far away while it's on the ground, it takes out a cowboy hat and two guns, and starts firing at Bug! (ironically, that move makes it a sitting duck)
As the recurring lab assistant enemies are revealed to be robots in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, you realize you are playing a game with robot knights, robot wizards, robot pirates, robot greasers etc. in it.
One notable example is the Babylon Rogues, consisting of Jet the Hawk, Wave the Swallow, and Storm the Albatross. Apparently they're legendary bird genie thieves FROM SPACE! And they race on Extreme Gear, which in its most common form is, essentially, hoverboards.
We also have Captain Whisker from Sonic Rush Adventure, who is a robot pirate.
The number one bestselling game on Impulse right now is Space Pirates and Zombies. I think its name is largely responsible.
In Mortal Kombat 9 Cyber Sub Zero is a Ninja Robot (one of many others in the game), and when he is resurrected by Quan-Chi as his servant along with most of the other good guys he becomes a Ninja Zombie Robot
And Scorpion has been the resident Ninja Zombie from Day 1.
A tombstone recounts the tragic tale of "Umiko the Ninja Pirate", killed by a robot zombie.
Etrian Odyssey III has Buccaneers (Pirates in the Japanese version) and Ninjas. Thanks to the subclass system, it's possible to eventually have a literal pirate-ninja or ninja-pirate. Furthermore, roughly halfway through the game, you can unlock the Yggdroid (Android in the Japanese version) class, allowing you to make robot-pirates or robot-ninja.
While the Casual Video GameJojo's Fashion Show and Jojo's Fashion Show 2 doesn't have actual fantasy creatures, some styles included are pirate gypsy and flamenco punk. The pirate gypsy one ends up coming off more like steampunk, though.
No More Heroes has several of these, such as Shinobu, the afro ninja schoolgirl.
Pandora's Guardian, one of the bosses in God of War, a giant, armored, demonic, fire-breathing zombie minotaur.
Several champs in League of Legends might qualify, but the best example is probably Urgot. He's a Robot Zombie, and has a Giant Enemy Crab skin to boot. But what really puts him over the top is that gameplay-wise, he was initially designed as a ranged-DPS-mage-tank hybrid. The developers and players alike didn't quite know what to do with him at first.
In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, your character has the soul of a Dragon. This person could also be a thief, fighter or mage or some combination of the three, the champion of several god/demon beings simultaneously, vampire or werewolf (but not both, sadly) and one of nine races including a Half-Elf, an Orc or a Lizard/Cat Person.
It is possible via a glitch to be a Werepyre, but it has since been patched out. There are also plenty of mods that allow it.
It is perfectly possible to end up as a blaster-toting Goblin Lich in Might and Magic VII.
Frank Horrigan from Fallout 2 is a Super Mutant Cyborg Secret Service Agent.
Caesar's Legion from Fallout: New Vegas are Roman Spartan Aztec Slaver Raiders, while their sworn enemy, the New California Republic, is based off of America during the frontier days of The Wild West, with their elite Ranger units being Cowboy SWAT Army Commandos.
The Ghost People from Dead Money are hazmat ninja zombies, and The Lobotomites from Old World Blues are cyborg zombies.
In Fallout 4, there's the crew of the USS Constitution are robot sailors, complete with old-fashioned Anglo-American accents and ranks befitting the theme. The captain, a giant Sentry Bot named Ironsides, even has a little sailor hat on his head. They've also fitted rockets to the ship and are trying to make it fly. There's also the crew of the FMS North Star, who have ghoulified and become raiders, making them zombie vikings. And then there's Nick Valentine, the Synth Detective.
For the first five games in the Might and Magic series the Big Bad and the Big Good were robot wizards from outer space (that is, they are spellcasting androids deployed from another world) whose job was to protect a medieval fantasy world from threats (one of them went rogue and started chucking worlds into stars — and at one point hijack a world to use as a spaceship — while the other remained loyal to his makers and their ideals of not chucking their experimental worlds into stars). In the eight game, the cause of the catastrophe is a robot wizard from outer space (see above) whose job is to travel around the galaxy and fight alien demons (if necessary blowing up planets along the way) and who lives in a castle made out of a giant skull.
Fossil Fighters Champions has zombie dinosaurs. The game's resident evildoers all use animate dinosaur skeletons to start, and later on in the game, fully-fleshed zombiesaurs make an appearance. The Final Boss, Zongazonga, is a dinosaur zombie wizard.
Five Nights at Freddy's features four animal animatronics in a pizzeria (a la Chuck E. Cheese) where you are the security guard and have to watch over them (strictly to save your own life). The animals are:
Freddy Fazbear, a robotic brown bear who wears a bowtie and a top hat.
Bonnie, a robotic purple bunny that wears a red bowtie.
Chica, a robotic baby chicken that wears a bib.
And, Foxy the Pirate Fox, he is a robotic pirate red fox who moves quickly like a ninja. And depending on your interpretation of the story, he may even be a zombie as well. This combination of factors probably contributes to his large fanbase.
And considering the condition they're all in by the sequel, the 'zombie' bit becomes quite a bit more appropriate.
The Zombie Pigman from Minecraft is a combination of a zombie and a pig. It drops rotten flesh, like zombies, but also gold nuggets. It's undead, but it won't attack you unless you attack them, or any other Zombie Pigman.
Not The Robots: The final boss is a robotic combination vacuum-lawnmower-oven.
Bloodborne: The Beastly Scourge manages to combine four different monsters into one lifecycle. The Scourge is triggered by consumption of the Old Blood (vampire) - which originates from otherworldly Great Ones (Eldritch Abomination) - and first turns the afflicted into mindless, deformed husks (zombie), before finally transforming them into lycanthropes (werewolf). So basically throughout the game you're fighting Vampiric Zombified Cosmic Werewolves.
