* A convoluted example comes from the early history of the United States. The first slaves in Britain's American colonies were prisoners transported to the New World and sold to the plantation owners as craftsmen, house servants, and field workers. While these "[[DoubleSpeak indentured servants]]" never regained their freedom, upon reaching adulthood any children born to them became free after a period of six years spent working for their parents owners as "repayment" for the food, shelter, and education they were provided as children.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': [[Creator/DavidTennant Kilgrave]] frequently controls the same people for long periods of time to cater or support him during his endeavors.
**Jessica Jones was Kilgrave's all-purpose slave while he had her under control, serving as his SexSlave and SlaveMook in addition to fulfilling his fantasy that they were in a romantic relationship.
**On multiple occasions he is shown taking over an apartment and having the previous occupants cook and clean for him.
**One man in the Kilgrave support group was forced to be his chauffeur for more than a week.
**At least one woman he had follow him around for long periods just because he liked the way she smiled.
**When Kilgrave and Jessica speak later in the series she explicitly refers to these sorts of people as slaves (although, ironically, in that particular instance the two people under discussion - Hank and the bodyguards - were not, as Kilgrave had hired those two with actual money in order to defuse this specific accusation from Jessica). Double subverted later on, though, when it turns out he did have them under his control; just not in the way Jessica expected. He uses his powers as the primary way of controlling them, and he pays them so they continue to carry out his orders even when he isn't capable of giving them.

Kaladin led his BackStory, he manages squad of spearmen against the Shardbearer. Most of them died, but Kaladin himself managed to win kill the Shardbearer, meaning the Shards now belonged to him. He refused them, as they reminded him too much of his way free at lost friends. Amaram then killed the very end survivors of Kaladin's squad, took the book.Shards, and branded Kaladin a slave as a "mercy," since one slave won't be believed]]. It's no wonder that Kaladin violently hates nobles.

* The original ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' showed that Cobra did this to quite a few civilians, and to Scarlet in the FiveEpisodePilot. This came back to bite them - in one scene, a gutsy female slave working as a maid threw water upon the M.A.S.S. device, causing it to break down and foiling Cobra Commander's attempt to vaporize New York City. And in the conclusion of the same arc, they had a full SlaveRevolt on their hands when the heroes stormed their compound.
