Zombacalypse would be the easiest one to survive. I always find it odd how one of the slowest, stupidest, and weakest monsters in popular fiction manages to topple civilization. How do rag tag groups of civilians who are poorly armed and trained able to manage the hordes, but modern militaries, with their tanks, artillery, gunships, and literal 100 of billions of rounds of ammunition can not. Just run zombies over with tanks or something, they wouldn't even be able to put a scratch on it.

Perhaps you should start a thread on the topic. I see your point, but I also think the point of zombies is that they ruin infrastructure. Sure, properly equipped zombies are a pretty low level threat, but breakouts don't only happen near military bases. Zombie apoc spreads like a disease, usually is a disease, and their danger isn't what they do to a well armed group of soliders, but what it does to the unsuspecting populace and in turn, society, besides its military. I grant you that organized military tends to be toppled way to early or in far too far-fetched scenarios in a lot of zombie media. But what makes zombies appealing, I think, is that they are certain social problems incarnate. A disease of mindlessness and violence that rots away the populace and eats away at the trappings of society using the societies people against it.

Also, zombie horde don't give no f*cks. Often vampires and werewolves have politics within their own circles. There is a logic to their activities that can be both strength and weakness. Zombie trouble just spreads if the conditions are right, like a weed. Especially if animals can be carriers or a Walking Dead type scenario where carries are not needed.

In short, zombies may have some obvious drawbacks when we are talking about what kind of monster based apocalypse scenario would leave us with the least possible options but I hardly see that as a reason to dismiss zombies. If they wouldn't topple society, they'd certainly call for it's reordering. Plenty of zombie stories and settings have just that scenario, usually one or several militarized entities keep their cool and a handle on their resources post z-day breakout. The last of us comes to mind.

I think with the vast alertness of zombies caused by the abundance of fictional content written; a zombie apocalypse would be more (manageable)fun to survive than any of the others.

Evil magical girls seems to be the least creepy, so I have to go with that.

I'd be very interested in biblical apocalypse if it was similar to SMT.

An invasion of evil magical girls doesn't sound as bad as say the Zombie apocalypse.

If the unicorns are carnivorous wouldn't they just be going after other unicorns?

No, I think you're thinking of cannibalism. Carnivorous just means they eat meat.
