The latest developer diary for Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z focused on how the concept of its strange zombie enemies was born, and how they will have a goofy edge to them. Apart from their silliness, they will stray further from traditional zombie design, and some will have elemental powers. 

Their humorous edge came up often in the diary, and was exemplified by footage of a zombie staring dumbly at a stream roller as it runs him over. Zombies will occasionally have flashes of personality from their previous life, and Sergeants’ (the mini bosses) personalities will be more prominent.
