Walking Dead AU (also known as Zombie AU) is a recent introduction in the fandom made from fanfiction, depicting the characters in the setting of a zombie apocalypse. This can also be considered an extension of Modern AU, War AU, Monster AU and Sci-Fi AU.

About the AUEdit

This AU was created by fanfiction writers who placed each character into a setting where the zombie apocalypse occurred, having to rely on their skills, their resources and each other for survival. Like its namesake, writers often use the comic book and hit TV-show The Walking Dead as a template, but this is not required.

Popular Spin-off AUsEdit

  • The Last of Us
  • Resident Evil
  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
  • World War Z

Featured CharactersEdit

The Big FourEdit

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock IIIEdit

Hiccup in this fandom is usually the 'brains' of the group, he makes the plans and where to head to next. His age changes from each story, either in his first or second movie age. He is still an inventor and uses discarded objects he and others find to help them in either creating a new weapon or some shelter. Toothless in this AU is usually portrayed as a large, black and shaggy dog. Hiccup is often portrayed with having his leg amputated due to a zombie bite.

Jack FrostEdit

Jack Frost is the comic relief of the group. Quick on his feet and just as witty, Jack keeps the group's spirits up and has their back if they need him. He often does this to mask the pain of losing his sister to the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. Instead of his staff, he is usually portrayed with a baseball bat.

Merida DunBrochEdit

Usually known as the "warrior" of the group, keeping her bow and arrow as a long distant weapon, using the blunt side of her bow and a sword (or a machete or hunting knife as an equivalent) for melee. 

Rapunzel CoronaEdit

Rapunzel in this AU is the 'healer' of the group. She usually carries around a bag full of medical supplies and she is the one who patches up the wounds of her friends. She still retains her long blonde hair in most stories and her main weapon is her trusty frying pan. Her childlike and curious personality is somewhat toned down by the horrors of the world but she still remains optimistic for a safer world.

Extra CharactersEdit

Tip TucciEdit

Replacing the Boov with zombies, Tip is a young girl that got left behind with her cat, while her mother and the rest of the city's people evacuated to one of the only zombie free place(s). So she and Pig stayed in their safe, old apartment, until they were ready to set off to find their own way to the "conation zone" and join her mother, while crossing a "lot" of zombie populated cities and towns.

Hiro HamadaEdit

Hiro and Tadashi lookout for each other, as they survive the zombie populated world; the Lucky Cat Café was their "safe house", until the "heat" got too high and they needed to find a new, safer place. When they believed that they had found it and a place to finally call home, a herd of zombies burst into the building and Tadashi made sure that Hiro had gotten away from them and that the zombies won't get their hands on him; he set the building on fire with him inside it, to make doubly sure and so the burning zombies would be focused only on him. To make sure that Tadashi's sacrifice wasn't in vain, Hiro does his best to be strong, use his big brain to outsmart the zombies and to stay alive; Hiro later found a small group of survivors that took in him.


The Hotel Transylvania zombie staff can easily be used as the apocalyptic zombies for the AU (since they are already zombies).

Penny ForresterEdit

The survival skills Penny uses in the world of the Bolt TV show can be used in the zombie populated would, with Bolt by her side. To keep her company and to alert her when any zombies are nearby or are making their way towards them.

Queen ElsaEdit

Princess AnnaEdit
