** The duergar -- LawfuEvil dwarves who live in [[BeneathTheEarth Darklands]] -- are notorious slavers. Their entire society and religion is based on constant toil to begin with, and their cities are built and maintained by the toil of legions of slaves. Duergar see enslaving other beings and forcing them to work for them as a high personal accomplishment.

** Even Imperial Space Marines have slaves to do work that a Space Marine is not needed for. Though the Marines' slaves are generally failed Marine candidates who somehow survived washing out, and are often [[HappinessInSlavery more than happy to help]], since they're still in a better position than the vast majority of Imperial citizens. Most such slaves who appear in the fluff are immensely valued personal assistance who even receive longevity treatments that only the rich normally get.
*** Although Space Marine serfs are also, in some cases, even better trained than the Imperial Guard in combat, being expected to join the defence of their masters' fortress-monasteries if an enemy ever manages to get close enough to be a threat to them. In some fluff it is revealed that some Chapters have serfs who are born, raised, live their lives and die in the Chapter's service.

** The dao (a type of genie of [[ElementalPowers elemental Earth]]) are another race known for being notorious slavers. Ironically, the dao themselves were forced into a type of divine slavery when their ruler was defeated by the Faceless God of [[ForgottenRealms the yikaria]] (or yak-folk), requiring the dao to serve the yikaria for "a thousand years and a year". (How much of that sentence had already passed at mainstream time is not known.) Due to this agreement, every yikaria has the ability to summon a dao - so long as he does not already have one as a servant - who must serve unquestionably until the sun has set twice.
** In the 4th Edition guidebook ''Monster Manual 2'', Slavers are one of several varieties of humans that are outlined as possible antagonists. The Lore section states, "Slavers are themselves slaves to greed and power", [[TruthInTelevision which is true, more often than not.]]

** The LawfulNeutral shaitan genies who rule the Elemental Plane of Earth make extensive use of slavery, with many of their empire’s cities and mines being built and maintained by slave labor. Enslavement is a common punishment for breaking one of the shaitans' many draconian laws, and the earth genies actively exploit this when seeking to get new slaves -- for instance, the imp-like mephits that share their plane are often found in violation of some law or another and forced into labor, and the shaitans run a literal city of gold to which they attract travelers by spreading tales and propaganda of it in the hopes that some visitors will take away a bit of the locally valueless gold, at which point they can charge them with theft and enslave them, their companions to said city, anyone they sold the gold to…
** The empire of the LawfulEvil efreet genies in the Plane of Fire is likewise built on the backs of slaves, and the efreeti will cheerfully enslave anyone who can’t stop them from doing so. Most notable is their enslavement of the azer, a race of elementals resembling dwarves with flaming beards and hair, whose fortresses they systematically overran in the distant past, reducing the azer to an oppressed slave class in their empire. Those few azers not enslaved by the efreeti are instead slaves of the fire mephits who make up the Plane of Fire’s other major power.

Their entire society and religion is based on constant toil to begin with, and their cities are built and maintained by the toil of legions of slaves.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Even in humanity's darkest hours, there are still some people making profit from [[HumansAreBastards selling others to the capital's underworld.]] Specifically this would have been the fate of Mikasa and her mother (if she wasn't killed) if not for Eren rescuing her and putting them down like the dogs they were.
