** Alfonzo from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' was once a member of New Hyrule's castle guard, his family having served the royal family for generations. Given that [[spoiler:he's a descendant of Gonzo, who was Tetra's head pirate]], this legacy of service has lasted through ''two'' different iterations of the Kingdom of Hyrule, plus the lengthy interregnum in between.

* ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden'' has two examples:
** The Wakaosa clan has been serving Uruki's [[spoiler: mother's side of the]] family for generations, which is vital when [[spoiler: a prophecy states that Uruki is destined to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill his father]] ]]; when that's revealed, [[spoiler: Uruki's mom entrusts baby Uruki to the then-leader Tauru Wakaosa, who raised him in her name until his own death; from then on, Tauru's son Soruen became young Uruki's BigBrotherMentor.]]
** One of the Genbu Senshi, Inami, was the daughter of a LadyInWaiting in the Hokkan Royal Palace and worked as a maid girl in the court too. It was not until the event of [[spoiler:TheEvilPrince Tegiru overthrowing the legitimate heir Temudan]] that she needed to flee the palace [[spoiler: due to her husband being labeled as part of Temudan's army.]]

* The Shiekah of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has ever been faithful to the Royal Family of Hyrule, and has served them for generations as retainers, with Impa being the latest in a long line.
* While not outright stated in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', a number of hints (in particular [[spoiler:a portrait in Hyrule Castle of the pirates' near-identical ancestors serving as Princess Zelda's retainers]]) suggest that Tetra's pirate crew has been loyal to her family for quite some time.

* In David Eddings' ''Literature/TheElenium'' there are two parallel service legacies going on -- the Sparhawk line has been hereditary champions of the monarchs of Elenia for several generations (it gets broken by Sparhawk marrying Queen Ehlana -- he is still her champion as well as her prince-consort, but their daughter obviously can't serve as her own hereditary champion, and Ehlana will only have one child), while Kurik's family have been squires for the Sparhawks for several generations (this does ''not'' get broken -- [[spoiler: Kurik's son Khalad is squire for Sparhawk in ''The Tamuli'', after Kurik's death in the last book of the ''Elenium'']]).

* The original story for [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]]'s butler, Alfred Pennyworth, whose father, Jarvis, had been Thomas Wayne's butler. This particular version of Alfred was canon until FrankMiller's ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', which established that Alfred had himself been Thomas Wayne's butler/valet, and had worked for the Wayne family since before Thomas and Martha Wayne were killed.

Sometimes, there are servants who do get very attached to the master family. So much that their children [[FollowInMyFootsteps follow in their footsteps]] and continue serving the family's descendants. Hence the reason why there are servants who come from a ''very'' long line of faithfully serving their masters.
