Many undead characters look very similar to humans, and may only be distinguished from them by some subtle detail; one of the common choices is [[DoesNotLikeShoes a lack of footwear]]. This has to do with the fact that while some items of clothing have a more social role (i. e. reflecting a person's inner side), shoes are largely worn for convenience; therefore someone who no longer feels cold or pain may be more comfortable barefoot. It may also give an effect of surprise or UncannyValley: when you see that a seemingly human character is barefoot in very inappropriate circumstances (like cold weather), you may suspect that there's actually something strange about him/her.

* In ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' series, the mysterious woman Katrina is perpetually barefoot, which seems really strange given that the protagonist meets her in a dark forest and nearby a very creepy cave. This may be one of the first hints that she's actually a vampire.

* The Black Regiment in ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' features as an enforced version of this trope. It is comprised of soldiers from both sides of the Civil War who have been slain in combat and reanimated by [[EldritchAbomination The Reckoners]], their coats stained black from the blood and gore of the battlefield. They appear only when a battle is in progress and only when one side is losing. They will aid that side, not out of any concern or sympathy for them purely to prolong the suffering and increase the casualties on both sides. Traditionally the comrades of a fallen soldier would take his boots after a battle, which is why every member of the Black Regiment barefoot. The only way to prevent a soldier from reanimating and joining them is to leave him wearing his boots.
