Films: Dawn of the Dead (1985)
Alias: Various, notably Bub
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: By this point in Romero's undead wasteland of an Earth, one can only wait for death as the horde grows bigger. But once again, who's to say the remaining aren't just as bad...?
History: The zombies that attacked that one mall a long time ago have quadrupled in population, and now humanity lives in pockets of alleged safety. In a place located in the Everglades, there are those who are trying to bring out the humanity in the undead, with Bub being a close success. Unfortunately, the maniacal Captain Rhodes threatens to ruin it all.
Notable Kills: See Final Fate.
Final Fate: Few survivors are left when the zombies inevitably break in, and Rhodes is horrifically disemboweled when Bub mockingly leads the horde unto him as the others escape.
Powers/Abilities: Slowly developing signs of intelligence.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 4-This is a world where the zombies outnumber humanity 100 to 1, and it shows. Admittingly, the idea of learning zombies is nice, but it doesn't stop the rest from being just as violent and hungry as before.
Trivia: -Romero came up with up to five scripts, but constantly raged against the budget he was allowed to have. A pity too, as he wanted to make, in his own words, the "Gone With the Wind of zombie movies".
-At some point, a comic chronically showing Bub's pre-zombie life was released, known as "Day of the Dead: Desertion".
