The Barnacle Walkers

Season 7, “Something They Need”

Sure, the walkers near the Oceanside community had a sweet view of the sea, but they spent a little too much time in the water, which is why they were sporting barnacle-covered faces when they shambled up to the Oceansiders and Rick’s group.

'The Walking Dead': The 13 most iconic walkers

To celebrate the Oct. 22 Season 8 premiere of  The Walking Dead — the series’ 100th episode — Yahoo TV will be posting a new TWD-related story every day through the season opener. 

Their importance to the show is right there in the title, but sometimes it seems like the walkers just get no respect. But for this roundup, and this roundup only, they’re the stars of the show: the most iconic walkers from Seasons 1 through 7 of The Walking Dead, from the ill-fated Bloated Well Walker at Hershel’s farm to the spiky, feisty Heapster walker known as Winston.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
