Zombie Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on zombie puns! 🧟 💀 🧠

We hope you find this list entertaining and that you find the zombie pun you’re looking for, whether it be for a word game, a piece of creative writing or to continue a pun thread online.

We’ve made this entry specific to zombies, but if you’re interested in other monsters and spooky beings, we also have witch puns, vampire puns and Halloween puns, and will have other monster entries coming soon too.

Note: The concept of zombies is heavily tied in to the history of Haitian slavery, as slave drivers would use horrifying stories of the undead to instil a fear of zombification into the slaves to discourage them from committing suicide. Slavery still exists for both humans and animals in way too many parts of the world, and not enough people know about it. We are lucky that zombies are simply a harmless bit of entertainment for us, rather than a terrifying idea used to control our agency over our own lives.

Zombie Puns List

Each item in this list describes a pun, or a set of puns which can be made by applying a rule. If you know of any puns about zombies that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page! Without further ado, here’s our list of zombie puns:

  • Be → Zombie: As in, “Zombie all you can be,” and “Zombie done with it,” and “I’ll zombie around,” and “Zombie my guest,” and “Zombie yourself.”
  • Bee → Zombee: As in, “Busy as a zombee,” and “Zombee in your bonnet,” and “Birds and the zombees,” and “Float like a butterfly, sting like a zombee,” and “Make a zombee-line for,” and “The zombee’s knees.”
  • Beat → Zombie’t: As in, “Zombie’t around the bush,” and “Zombie’t the clock,” and “Zombie’ts me,” and “Zombie’t someone else.”
  • Beans → Zombeans: As in, “Spill the zombeans,” and “Full of zombeans.” Note: to be full of beans is to be full of energy and enthusiasm – the “beans” in this context are possibly a reference to coffee beans.
  • Somebody → Zombodie: As in, “Find me zombodie to love,” and “Zombodie has to do it,” and “Zombodie that I used to know,” and “Use zombodie.”
  • Abercrombie & Fitch → Aberzombie & Fitch (Note: Abercrombie & Fitch are an American clothing retailer.)
  • Brain: Use these brain-related phrases to make some corny zombie puns – “All brawn and no brains,” and “Brain drain,” and “Brain fart,” and “Brain teaser,” and “Brainwave,” and “Brainstorming session,” and “A no-brainer,” and “Pick your brain,” and “Rack your brains.” Notes: A brain drain is a colloquial term for the emigration of highly trained experts or professionals.
  •  *brain*: As in, “Birdbrain,” and “Brainchild,” and “Brainless,” and “Brainpower,” and “Brainstorm,” and “Brainwash,” and “Brainy.”
  • Rain → Brain: As in, “Right as brain,” and “Come brain or shine,” and “Make it brain,” and “Over the brainbow,” and “Braining cats and dogs,” and “Take a braincheck,” and “Taste the brainbow,” and “A wild brainforest.” Note: to take a raincheck is to accept an invitation, but only at a later date.

  • Dead* → Undead*: As in, “Don’t miss the undeadline!” and “Bolt the undeadlock,” and “The seven undeadly sins,” and “An undeadbeat,” and “Undead set on an idea.” Notes: A deadbeat is an idle, irresponsible person and to be dead set is to be absolute in your resolution for something.

From “the cradle to the grave” describes something that affects an entire lifetime, and “One foot in the grave” means close to death, or dying.
  • Brave → Grave: As in, “Grave new world,” and “Fortune favours the grave,” and “Put a grave face on,” and “Grave the storm.”

A casually derogatory and racist term.
  • Flush → Flesh: As in, “Royal flesh,” and “Flesh it out,” and “Fleshed cheeks.” Notes: a royal flush is a type of card combination in poker.

  • Ghouls: Ghouls are similar to zombies in that they are also beings who eat human flesh and are associated with death and graveyards, so we’ve included them in this entry. Make some ghoulish puns with these:
