* In the theatrical piece [[Theatre/WaitingForGodot ''Waiting for Godot'']] there is a scene in which the 2 main characters Vladimir and Estragon meet the 2 characters Pozzo and Lucky. You can clearly see that Pozzo, who is blind and lashes on Lucky with a whip, is guided by Lucky, who is mute and wears bags of sand for him. At a certain moment Pozzo and Lucky fell and split apart. while Pozzo was still awake Lucky was knocked out. Pozzo recommends Estragon to hit him in order to awake him again and recommends that it is done on the head or the private parts. After Estragon hits Lucky on the private parts he has pain on his feet but still managed to awake Lucky. Estragon then orders him to search for his whip and bands that tie them together and Lucky obeys. It is however not noted why Lucky does that in the theater piece, which [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory leads to lots of speculation]].

** Jacob gave himself to his relative Laban to work for him for seven years, his only payment being marrying his daughter Rachle at the end of those years. To Jacob though, they only felt like a few days because of his love for her. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Laban pulls a switcheroo on the wedding, and gets Jacob married to his older daughter Leah instead. Thus Jacob ends up having to work another seven years for Rachel.]]

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' had Janeway's recreation of LeonardoDaVinci removed from the holodeck and "employed" by an alien tyrant who gave him the freedom to work on whatever he desired, on the understanding that his creations would be turned over to the tyrant. When Janeway arrives to rescue Leonardo, he responds that "if this is a cage, it is a cage of gold!" Justified: to an artist of the Italian Renaissance, employment with a patron who gives you unlimited resources and freedom to create would have been hitting the jackpot.

* The "Slave Mentality" disadvantage in ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' is this, to the point of the character needing to make a self-control roll to do anything of their own initiative, [[UpToEleven up to and including]] ''[[UpToEleven eating]]''.

Added DiffLines:

*In the Spanish film ''Stico'' a broke Roman Law professor offers himself as a slave to an old student in exchange for house and food. His motivation is not his financial situation however, but that he is not happy with his life choices and hopes that giving away his freedom will solve that.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' take on ''Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan'', the Shamoshians enslaved by the Saiyans building the new [[spoiler: and fake]] planet Vegeta not only have no problems being enslaved, but they beg to be whipped and abused by their masters, which kinda weirds out the Z Warriors when they show up to "rescue" them.

* In ''{{Arcanum}},'' Gar, [[spoiler:a mostly human man who looks like an orc]] sold ''himself'' into slavery, so he would no longer be a burden to his parents. He was bought by H.T. Parnell (a P.T. Barnum type) and lives at his sideshow as "Gar, the World's Smartest Orc." Gar is resigned to his lot in life, though, as due to the world's [[FantasticRacism prejudice against orcs]], he doesn't really see any chance for improvement.
** And if you go through the quest to obtain his freedom, and then release him from your own command (either immediately, or by removing him from the group), he returns to Parnell's. Admittedly this is part of the game's programming (every party member will eventually return to where you found them, if removed from the group), but it's interesting nonetheless.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', collectivist empires can enslave pops of their own species. If said pops are collectivist too, they happily accept it for the greater good of their empire.
