The random event zombie is a level 159 zombie that resides in the fourth level of Stronghold of Security.


Before random event update in 2014 the zombie used to appear randomly when burying bones. On appearance, it would say, "Brainsssss!" As with similar guardian random events, the zombie's Combat level, Hitpoints, and maximum hit depended on the player's Combat level.

Zombies were somewhat rare, as players rarely buried bones in high enough quantities to activate this random event. Also, Prayer had two other random events that could occur while training it: Shades and Leo the Gravedigger. Zombies would not appear if training Prayer via the Ectofuntus or a POH altar.
