"They say the Zombie Master controlled these foul creatures even before his own death, but now that he is one of them, nothing can make them betray him."
― "Zombie Master" card flavor text, Magic: The Gathering
"It appears that there is some sort of hierarchy to the zombie hordes. Some are more intelligent than most and seem to give them directions. Perhaps our original theories were wrong."
― Dr. Einer Saukas, discovering there's a hierarchy in the Zombie outbreak, when he witnessed some of them being smarter and formidable, and also giving the lesser Zombies orders. (They Hunger)

The user is or can become an all but unstoppable Zombie Lord; one of the most powerful forms of undead. As king of the undead they retain their rational sense of self-awareness, being able to think, plan and articulate their actions and motions.

Being the lord of the undead, may give a user undisputed power over all types of lifeless corpse types be it Revenants to Skeletons, Flesh Golems, Radioactive Zombies, Mutant Zombies, Metazombies, Mummies, Ghouls, even Zombie Hybrids may fall under their sway. Like any alpha of a species the Zombie Lord has greatly superior physical attributes, most prominently the corpse in question will be moved by powerful forces that give them phenomenal and malefic powers.

A Zombie Lord is incredibly difficult if not impossible to truly dispatch, their ability as such is their all but unassailable tenacity. No matter what one does with them they can never truly be stopped forever they can only do so momentarily, and be detained more often.
