Features zombies, partially decayed corpses that for some unfathomable reason behave like living creatures. Commonly express a strange hunger for the flesh of non-zombies.
Alternate names: Living dead, Walking corpses
The first video game about Zombies was released in 1982.
Unlike skeletons, zombies still have muscles and nervous system and possibly brains to control the behaviour and therefore are not scientifically speaking dead. A somewhat common alternate interpretion for those that try to achieve a level of realism say they're infected with some strange virus or whatever that damages their higher brain functions, makes them ultra violent (hence the somewhat common name "rage virus"), and hungry for the flesh of non-infected. The undead kind that used to be popular were controlled by magic, demons, spirits, or some other external force to the corpse itself that could defy laws of nature.
Ultra violence and somewhat braindead (or rather rabid and animalistic) intelligence with the former personality largely destroyed are the defining traits. Though commonly they're also rotting alive, or suffer from effects similar to old scientifically inaccurate belief of how leprosy works (that is, body parts falling off).
Commonly highly contagious disease/virus that transmits via bodily fluids or open wounds.
