Zombies (ゾンビ) are living dead creatures that appear in the Dragon Ball series.
A zombie appears among Fortuneteller Baba's fighters, Bandages the Mummy. In Dragon Ball Z, Zombies are seen in the Other World, in the café where the Guide who took Goku to the start of the Snake Way meets Fortuneteller Baba in order to give her Goku's message for Master Roshi (which reaches him via Kami and Yajirobe). The other customers in the café are various yokai (Japanese monsters); such as tengu, yuki-onna, yama-warau, mikoshi-nyudo, and meihitotsubou.
In the movie Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, Zombies attack Satan City. They appear among the living as a result of the Soul Cleansing Machine's Evil Containment tanks shattering from being overfilled in Hell, resulting in the creation of Janemba. Some of them are seen riding horses at the beginning of the movie and some other are members of the Dictator's army. Videl and Gohan, who is wearing his Great Saiyaman outfit, fight walking skeletons and zombies immediately before Frieza and his men. Mr. Satan is also seen beating up Jiang Shi and Zombies in a deserted street. Goten and Trunks fight the Dictator and his army of Zombies.
Although most of the Zombies in Fusion Reborn attempt to harm everyone, there are a few who are quite benign. For instance, a grandpa who was confused about his coming back from the dead, does not hurt his family, and a woman named Juliet was presumably not going to hurt Romeo but left him for younger men.
