According to the Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency, “Almost every significant zombie outbreak in the United States came on the heels of a hurricane, flood or blizzard,” which suggests to me a water link. Given that, according to the agency, the zombie virus (Mononegavirales, same family as Human Vampire Virus) is caused by ticks from tropical climes (thus explaining the large number of outbreaks in those regions) it does not seem farfetched that there might be a water -zombie link.

However, I can find no definitive causal connection in the literature between water and zombies per se. Bob Tankard of philyburb.com argues that water remains a safe boundary against decomposing bone-biters.” Other sources, however, suggest avoiding shallow water in the event of a zombie attack, as zombies do enter water and can remain underwater indefinitely.

Flushed crocodiles, Frankish, orca, jaws, anaconda, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, Leviathan, Moby Dick, etc. In this movie, a wise/psychic little girl keeps filling up glasses of water and leaving them around the house, so that when the aliens finally attack, someone can throw water on them and kill them.

Clearly this film is intended to highlight the importance of fresh water resources throughout the world, and illuminate the risk of alien attack once the world passes peak water. Then there is the case of the Wicked Witch of the West, who melts horribly when Dorothy throws water on her.

It seems to me that the central metaphysical theme of this film is that Water is Life ! Also, that the fitness gurus who say not to eat in the evening are correct, but not for the reasons they think.

Drowned have a greater chance of appearing in ruins and cities. Drowned have a chance to spawn with either a trident or a fishing rod, and occasionally with a nautilus shell.

A zombie converting into a drowned. If a zombie is not in a boat and its head is submerged in water continuously for 45 seconds, it begins the process of converting to a drowned. It starts shaking, similar to the effect seen while a zombie villager is being cured.

Items spawned with the zombie drop with the normal 8.5% +1% per Looting level. In Bedrock Edition only, an item being held or worn by a zombie when it becomes drowned, whether it was picked up or naturally spawned, has a 100% drop rate, which includes any naturally spawned equipment dropping with full durability.

(12 during its time as a baby) if killed by the player or a tamed wolf. This means that the player has a 0.53% chance to receive a trident without Looting, and a 0.71% chance to receive a trident with Looting III.

This means that the player has a 3.75% chance to receive a trident without Looting, and a 5.55% chance to receive a trident with Looting III. In Java Edition, converted drowned are never equipped with tridents or nautilus shells.

However, it heads to the nearest water source when provided access once again and becomes hostile upon making contact. During the day, drowned swim only to attack players that are swimming in the water with them; otherwise, they stay on the floor of the water body they are in, ignoring players on land or in a boat.

However, at night, drowned swim to the surface and chase players as well as baby turtles, even outside the water, like regular zombies. Unlike zombies, drowned do not break down doors in hard mode.

Drowned also uses this animation if they are tracking a player while they are not standing on a solid block. Also, if they hold a nautilus shell or anything else in their offhand, their arms are in the same posture as a player's.
