Fandom Mashups (46)

Fandom Mashups is a feature hosted by Lunar Rainbows Reviews. There's a different scenario each week, and you choose a "dream team" of five characters from five different fandoms whom you think are best suited for the situation.

This week's topic is:
ZOMBIES! The dead have risen and are trying to take over the land of the living! Who do you want to help you send them back to where they came from?

Ewwww—zombies! They're my least favorite paranormal creatures; they're just so . . . gross! I don't watch The Walking Dead and have only ever read like two zombie books, so I thought about characters who have either battled zombie-like beings or are just ace at fighting in general to assemble this team:

  1. Celaena/Aelin (Throne of Glass): Aelin has fought all sorts of nasty creatures, so zombies shouldn't be much of a problem for her. Plus she has her fae magic to light those suckers up!
  2. Albus Dumbledore: Dumbledore igniting that scary ass cave to drive back the Inferi in the Half-Blood Prince movie is one of my favorite scenes across all of the HP films. He'd be able to handle zombies, and with any luck, in a similarly epic manner!
  3. Zuko (Avatar: The Last Airbender): Because more firepower (literally) wouldn't hurt.
  4. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars): OK, so Jedi mind powers probably won't work here, but with any luck, a light saber will. XD
  5. Lisa Simpson: In the Dial "Z" for Zombies story from Treehouse of Horror III, Lisa helped Bart send the zombies that he accidentally conjured back to their resting places after a trip to the library (of course, lol) to find the counterspell. She'd be our researching expert once again!


  1. I have a deep dislike for Zombies too (and I don't watch Walking Dead either - nor do I read many Zombie books) but I do read books about Necromancy, so I went that route LOL!

    Dumbledore and the Inferi was BADASS. What a perfect choice! And with Zuko for added fire-power?! AND Aelin. Those gross creatures are SO done. I LOVE that you picked my beloved Lisa Simpson! I never would have thought of that ep. but it's perfect :D And Obi Wan? Hell yes that saber will take care of business hahaha! Fabulous team ♥♥♥♥♥

    1. Ooh, I'm excited to see who's on your team! I don't think I've read any necromancy books; if I have, apparently they weren't all that memorable, lol!

      I really, really hope fire works on these particular zombies because I packed this team with quite a lot of fire wielders! XD

  2. Everyone from The Walking Dead will be on my team lol

    Hey have you read Kresley Cole's Arcana Chronicles? I strongly recommend you pick it up

    1. Poison Princess has been on my Kindle for ages, lol. I will move it up on the TBR since you recommend it! :D

  3. Haha this is so fun. I don't really consider zombies paranormal since they're usually sci-fi and just... infected people lol. So they're not my favorite either, but I continue to try zombie books for some reason.

    Anyway I love your list and how creative it is. But oh my goodness, that HP in the book (haven't seen the movie) practically gave me nightmares! But I'd totally take Dumbledore on my team too! And I'm pretty sure light sabers just always work on everything lol.

    1. The cave scene from HBP creeped me out big time when I read it, and then when I saw the movie, it was even scarier! Dumbledore was magnificent, especially in the film- it's one of my favorite scenes with him in all of the movies. I really do hope that light sabers work on everything, zombies included, lol!
