* This occurs to the main characters in Creator/CSLewis's ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheDawnTreader'' in ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. Good thing that the man who purchased Caspian was an old friend of his dead father, thus he releases the young king and decides to help.
** Shasta overhears the discussion to sell him as the newest slave of a rich Calormene military man in ''TheHorseAndHisBoy'' and decides, with [[AFriendInNeed said man's mount Bree's help]], to run away. It is Bree and Hwin's BackStory, as they were kidnapped from their valleys when very young and then used as Calormene mounts. And Queen Susan has reason to fear it, considering that Prince Rabadash is {{Yandere}} for her and wants her as his puppet ''at any cost''.

* In ''DonJuanDemarco'', the title character relates a yarn about being captured by slave dealers and sold into the 'service' of a lusty Sultana. Not that he seems to have minded much. It probably helped that the Sultana kept him hidden in her husband's large harem (apparently she didn't object to sharing.) This incident also occurs in Lord Byron's epic poem ''Literature/DonJuan'', upon which the movie is partially based.

** It happens
to [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Kenshin]] (then known as Shinta), a child named Shinta, after his family and most of his village succumbed to [[ThePlague a cholera outbreak.]] Then the caravan was attacked by bandits and everyone but Shinta was slaughtered. ''Then'' Seijuuro Hiko stepped into the scene, killed the bandits, and a short while later he adopts Shinta as his pupil... and renames him as Kenshin.
** In the ''To Rule Flame'' prequel, centered on Yumi and the Juppongatana, [[spoiler: two little girls that Yumi took care of in the RedLightDistrict are captured by a paramilitary group that plans on selling them as slaves to foreign crews, who have "taken a fancy to Japanese things", like the two "porcelain dolls". Yumi foils this by [[PleaseIWillDoAnything pretty much selling her life to Shishio]], who accepts to wipe out the group and send the little girls to safety in exchange.
