* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Kaladin spends the first book of Literature/TheStormlightArchive as a slave, having been enslaved by a treacherous aristocrat in the backstory. [[spoiler:Highmarshal Amaram was being attacked by a full Shardbearer--a man wearing {{Magitek}} PoweredArmor and a [[SoulCuttingBlade sword that can cut through anything]]. 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.

* In Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} Curse of Chalion]]'' being [[SlaveGalley sold to the galleys]] is part of the main character's backstory. The resulting scars are a minor plot point a few times, [[spoiler: and then a major plot point in the end. (spoilered because once you know this the logic is obvious)]]

->''And as often as you reflect how much power you have over a slave, remember that your master has just as much power over you. "But I have no master," you say. You are still young; perhaps you will have one. Do you not know at what age Hecuba entered captivity, or Croesus, or the mother of Darius, or Creator/{{Plato}}, or Diogenes?''

* The main character in ''[[Literature/TortallUniverse Trickster's Choice]]'', by TamoraPierce, is kidnapped and sold into slavery in a neighboring nation. This actually forms the premise of the whole duet. Luckily the people she ends up with are fairly nice as things go, although extenuating circumstances mean she is treated better than most.
