The power to become or use the traits of a zombie/vampire. Variation of Hybrid Physiology. Combination of Vampire Physiology and Zombie Physiology.

Also Called

  • Vambie Physiology


The user is a zompire, a bizarre creature combining the traits of vampires and zombies.

They may have originally been vampires that fell prey to a zombifying virus or a mutating curse, or zombie infectees that were vampirized before the process was complete, probably as a desperate attempt to survive the infection.

The last (and worst) possibility would be an engineered hybrid virus combining traits of zombies and vampires, a terrible bioweapon of mass destruction, as zompires are much more powerful and intelligent than zombies, while sharing their ferocious voracity and exponential numbers.




  • Supernatural hunters are capable of defeating Zompires.
  • Acidic Blood, Poisonous Blood, and perhaps Vampiric Toxicity can be counteractive abilities against them.
  • Like Vampires, they may need some form of life-forces, otherwise they may cease to function completely, age rapidly, or suffer starvation.
  • Destroying the brain, decapitation, and a wooden stake to the heart may kill a Zompire.
  • Conversion Negation can cure Zompires.
  • May still be idiotic and/or mindless.
