Could Undead Nightmere from Red Dead Redemption be considered a zombie apocalypse?

Removed the Dragon Age examples, as none of them were at all accurate. Darkspawn are not zombies, do not behave like them, and do not reproduce by turning the corpses of humans into other darkspawn — they do turn compatible females into brood mothers, but it's not nearly wide spread enough for them to be considered zombies. The Redcliffe example was slightly better, but still doesn't fit this trope. Dragon Age undead are created by a demon possessing a corpse, so by definition they aren't contagious. Thirdly, abominations are not "basically the same as zombies" — they are living mages who are possessed by demons, and aside from a tendency toward violence do not really share anything in common with zombies.

Personal comment: while it's true that High School Of The Dead has right-wing politics compared to the usual Zombie Apocalypse fare, I think it's a welcome change of pace, because it gets a bit annoying after a dozen or three repetitions of the same aesops in the same situations. And I'm a convinced leftist IRL; I just like a bit of variety in my fiction, and I have the humility to consider that I may be wrong about certain things.

Beginning to look like Zombie Apocalypse will need to be broken down by media type. Page is starting to get a little unwieldy big.

A related topic . . .

Can there be such a thing as a WEREWOLF apocalypse (I am not talking about the game by the way)?

I seem to recall a novel called Bestial that dealt with that.

Much more generally, is there a (super)trope that refers to anything non-human that comes in big bunches and turns victims into their likes? Stuff like zombies, werewolfs, vampires, Heartless (the K Ingdom Hearts version), Final Fantasy's Unsent (to an extend) et cetera?

I mean, i can see the concept used enough to have a trope of itself...

Is there any reason why this page is indexed to Notable Furry Webcomics? I was just wondering.

Should we note how zombies have become a huge fad among Internet circles in recent years?

One day soon... zombie apocalypse will be upon us and we'll all be doomed, except me cause im just cool =D

How, what you refer to as a zombie is really a ghoul. So, unless necromancers really exist there's no chance of a zombie apocalypse.

except runners— technically living ones that move quickly but don't require headshots. viral infectees
