"The stinking dead have risen up to dance with the lifeless living, and they want to do it over your dead body."
― A book in the Graveyard.

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



These enemies are the easiest to defeat in the games. It doesn't take much to defeat them, the Small Sword (or the Short Sword in MediEvil: Resurrection) are both more than capable of taking these shamblers down in a couple of swipes. A lit torch or club can also burn them.

MediEvil (1998 original)

Zombies are one of the three enemies that don't disappear when killed; the other two are Headless Zombies and Wolves.

Official Strategy guide entry

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

Official Strategy guide entry

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

An Adventurer's Guide to Monsters entry

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.

MediEvil (2019 remake)

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.

Behind the scenes


MediEvil (1998 original)

In the MediEvil trailer featured on the PlayStation Plus Video Preview '97 VHS, zombies can be seen in the Pumpkin Gorge level. They cannot be found in this level in the final release.

MediEvil 2

Early versions of zombies seen in some pre-release screenshots resemble their concept art more closely than their final counterparts.

2012 – PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Zombies make an appearance in The Graveyard stage of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Caskets constantly rise from the background and produce zombies. If a casket is blown up by the angel statue in the graveyard before the zombies are released, then the casket will drop AP.
