The walking dead is the second-tier creature of the Necropolis faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the graveyard. The walking dead can be upgraded to the zombie.

Walking Dead and Zombies are magically animated corpses. Zombies have a 20% chance to cause disease in creatures they attack. Diseased creatures have their attack and defense ratings reduced by two for a period of three rounds.OffBck

As a slow-moving corpse, with high hit points for a second-level creature, the walking dead makes a sturdy defender, but is ill-suited for charging.


  • Straker is a specialist in walking dead, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after second level.
