The stinking dead have risen up to dance with the lifeless living, and they want to do it over your dead body.

Book, MediEvil

The evil incarnations of Zarok's dark magic, Zombies will stop at nothing to get their next meal, and unfortunately for Dan, he is in the middle of the crowd.

These enemies are the easiest to defeat in the game, it doesn't take much to defeat them, the Small Sword and the Wooden Sword are both more than capable of taking these shamblers down in a couple of swipes. A lit torch or club can also burn them.

Book of Gallowmere entry

These guys were fashionably undead before it was fashionable to be undead. Your brain may have long since rotted, but that won't stop them from eating it.

Just a few chops should do them in. Be careful not to miss! That would be embarrassing.



The only enemy you'll face in the Graveyard is the slow-witted zombie. These lumbering goons come in a variety of colours, but all act just about the same. They stumble about aimlessly until they pick up your scent and will even fall flat on their faces from time to time. A few well-placed swipes from your Small Sword will send them back to the grave.[1]

MediEvil 2

Zombies are found throughout the world of MediEvil II and are more of a nuisance than a threat. This doesn't mean you can let your guard down around them, however, as they are surprisingly fast. With each slash of your sword, you will slowly dismember them. Watch out! Even without limbs, they still try to butt heads with you.[2]

MediEvil: Resurrection

Your common or garden zombie is (to be blunt) a slow witted goon head of monumental proportions. It seems a shame to hurt such feeble minded weapon fodder, but they will likely insist on trying to bar one's progress and eat one's brains. A few well placed sword swipes are the order of the day, which should effectively teach them to mind their own business.
