  • zombie – zombi is the most common form, however while not exactly meaning “zombie” another Japanese word, kyonshi, would imply living dead or reanimated dead.

    “Vampire” can be written as you suggested, kyuuketsuki or as another English loanword, vampaia (which may sound more like “bampaia” due to the characteristics of Japanese allophones).

    And yes, bakemono is a very generalized term for monsters, could mean anything from ghosts to goblins; similar to the term obake.

  • Zombie is just zonbi.

    Yes, those are right.

    Well, there’s always “zonbi”, which is Japanese for “zombie”. Or you could call them “zonbu”. It’s how my friend accidentally read the katakana for zombie and I thought it sounded cool. Or you could call them “henkei” for “transformation” or “kikei” for “freak”. In Japanese, “bakemono” means “change thing” and refers to something that turns into something else, such as a sandal that grows and eye and starts hopping around. I think that applies to zombies… You could also call them “rei” for “spirits”, “kage” for “shadow” (or i guess “kagenin”, “shadow people”), or “yuurei” for “ghost.
