* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': The Tau's Greater Good philosophy doesn't ''quite'' extend this far: the Tau recognize the usefulness of individuality, but everything they do needs to be for the good of all instead of just the individual (and it's hinted this may be enforced via pheromones or mind-control helmets).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Unsullied have been trained all their lives to obey any command by their owners and to lack any personal desires. To reinforce this they are renamed after vermin (Grey Worm, Black Rat, etc.) and refer to themselves as "this one" rather than "I."

** In addition, different models have different opinions on how "individual" a Cylon should be from his/her model. Ones (Cavils) believe in complete uniformity, Sixes believe in individuality but draw the line at opposing their model and Eights seem almost eager to break it and find their own identity at the cost of everything else.

* The Gem Homeworld from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' seems to be this way. Every Gem has an exact purpose they're made for (except of course the [[EvilOverlord Diamonds]]) and ''only'' that exact purpose is allowed. Jasper implies punishment for deviating from your 'intended' purpose may be death. And so is being born with a defect. Naturally, Rose Quartz was able to use this as a fantastic recruiting tool, as she herself believed the exact opposite and encouraged her Crystal Gems to find their own identity and desires.

* In the ''Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse'', the Breen are allowed to be individuals, but not ''too'' individual. They have an egalitarian multi-species society based on masking species so there is no possibility of prejudice or favouritism based on it. This inevitably means hiding other aspects of themselves as well, so as not to give cues as to what their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is.
