Zombies are a form of undead found all over Gielinor, appearing in several different locations, most often in graveyards, dungeons and tombs. Like Skeletons, they are the result of Necromancers reanimating the bodies of the dead.
Zombies generally have a low defence for their combat level, and are notably weak to slash attacks.
Zombie can refer to the following:
- Any monster whose name is zombie. This article covers these monsters.
- A class of undead creatures: zombies, zogres (zombie ogres), zombie monkeys, zombie pirates, etc. When given a Slayer assignment for zombies, any zombie-class creature may be targeted, including those such as undead chickens and cows.

Location by combat levelEdit

Many zombie locations are far from banks. For players wishing to slay zombies and bank their drops, consider the following:
- Low-level zombies
- Medium-level zombies
- High-level undead ones
- Level 68 and 73 undead ones are by the entrance to Shilo Village, which is quite near the bank in the village. However, the Shilo Village quest is required for access to the village. Undead ones count as zombies for slayer tasks. When killed, the undead ones emit a 'green thick mist' that chokes you, doing some minor damage for a couple seconds. This mist is not poison, so anti-poison has no effect. The net effect is that players will take some extra damage killing these undead ones.
Zombies are one of the 'races' who have a lesser champion in the Champions' Challenge activity. To fight the Zombie Champion, the player must kill zombies until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.
It should be noted that whilst undead ones count towards a zombie slayer task, they do not drop Champion's scrolls.
- Note: The level 18 zombies in the Edgeville Dungeon near Vannaka only drop bones and nothing else. Level 18 zombies elsewhere have regular drops.
