This is a zmobie. You wonder briefly what's in his head, but forget about that when he lunges at yours.
He grabs your skull and starts munching on your brains. You forget the piano lessons you had as a child. Ouch! Oof! (spooky damage)
He cracks your skull open and munches on your brraaains. You forget the alamo. Eek! Ooh! (spooky damage)
He marches forward, slowly, inexorably... and marches right past you. But he stepped on your foot on the way. Ooh! Eek! (spooky damage)
He suddenly snaps and goes from shambling to sprinting, running after you and pummeling you ferociously. Why do zmobies do that? Argh! Ouch! (spooky damage)
He grabs your skull and tries to munch your brains, but thankfully you're too hard-headed.
He tries to punhc you in the <giblets>, but he's too slow to connect.
He tries to munch on your brrraaiins, but finds you're just a light snack. Zing!
He marches forward slowly, inexorably... and marches right past you.
He gets into a tank (one loaded with bombs, bombs, and guns) and tries to drive it over you, but gets stuck in reverse. Stupid zmobie. (FUMBLE!)

- This refers to the song "Zombie" by The Cranberries. "What's in your head, in your head / Zombie" The cranberries that you get from the fight also refer to the band's name.
- "Remember the Alamo" was a common warcry during the Mexican-American War.
- The fumble message is a reference to the movie Land of the Dead, specifically the vehicle called Dead Reckoning.
- He gets into a tank (one loaded with bombs, bombs, and guns) refers again to the song Zombie "With their tanks and their bombs / And their bombs and their guns."
- The critical hit message references the fact that zombies behave differently in different movies. Specifically, in Night of the Living Dead zombies were slow and shambling, whereas in Return of the Living Dead they were fast and vaguely intelligent. This may also be a reference to Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, in which zombies with giant swords walk like other reanimated corpses, but they have the Charge skill, meaning they can rush the character and attack in the same action.
