Romero made a brief appearance on episode 3 BBC's A History of Horror with Mark Gatiss, where he and Gatiss discussed his independently made film Night of the Living Dead.

Romero is given credit at the end of the zombie themed episode four of the Japanese animated series Space Dandy as having written and directed it, though this is a joke.

Romero made a cameo appearance on the 2014 Phineas and Ferb Halloween special, "Night of the Living Pharmacists", where he voiced a news reporter named "Don Adaded", in reference to his film Dawn of the Dead. The character design was also modeled after Romero.

Video Games[edit]

Romero was featured and voiced alongside Robert Englund, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Danny Trejo and Michael Rooker in a downloadable content pack in Call of Duty: Black Ops as a zombie boss in "Call of the Dead", the zombie map included in the content pack named "Escalation".
