Artwork of the Undead.

Undead is a recurring monster class in the Disgaea series first introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.


The Undead appears as hairless, rotting humanoids, and parts of their body appear to drip as if it was partially melting into a slime like substance. Their jaws are angular and the top part of their jaw has partially melted into their lower jar. They have a tuft of hair at the top of their head. They have a horn that prodrudes from the front of their head, and they have long horizontal ears. They have clawed hands and feet, hardly similar in appearance to a human's, and their arms are bandaged. They have a shoe on one foot, and that leg is melted to the point that the lower half appears as mere bones.

Their default coloration have them appear with green skin and orange hair.


They are undead humans or demons with rotten bodies that were revived by the Netherworld's poisonous air. Due to their rotten bodies, they emit a rotten stench from their body, which makes them generally hated by others. Despite being categorized as a whole separate race, they are technically not as such.

They are considered unintelligent as their brains are rotten as well. It is claimed that it is specifically their rotten brains are what cause them to smell bad. Some undead retain their ability of independent thought and some can even speak in fluent and coherent sentences.


Undead are frequently one of the more common and weaker monsters in the game, aside from the final Zombie King tier. Zombies generally have low defense and high HP.

Undead are one of the first enemies encountered, and thus one of the first creatable monsters. The demon Aramis keeps many as pets, which Laharl is forced to find in the episode Of Being an Overlord. The "Ultimate Zombie" with its unique items that appears in that chapter has also become an infamous gag within the fandom.

Occasionally, Undead will appear as enemies on certain stages. A zombie named Bok Choy, who runs the Demon Sea Casino, can be fought as a boss if the player plays the level first. Some are found when battling Anise the Cat Witch.
