* ''TheGamer'' has slavers who kidnap individiduals with high magic power and use them on magic-farms, harvesting their ability for energy in general, in addition to exploiting any particular talents they may have. The main character, being a developing but exceedingly promising magic user themed on video-game mechanics is in severe danger of being a target of these slavers while he is still leveling up and developing the skills needed to defend himself.

Want to show that the bad guys (or possibly the AlienInvasion) are really, truly ''evil?'' Want them to cross the MoralEventHorizon without having to do much work? Want them to just terrify everybody into oblivion? Easy! Just state -- or really heavily imply -- that they breed humans like livestock, or keep them like animals in vast People Farms. Their purpose needn't be specified. [[ToServeMan Eating us?]] Harvesting [[OurSoulsAreDifferent our souls?]] Being bred for our skills in magic? HumanResources? Because they [[{{Rule 34}} like to watch]]? Doesn't matter. Just the implication is enough to {{squick}} people.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' reveals relatively early on in the game that [[spoiler: Cocoon, the world where "civilized" humanity has its every need taken care of by the benevolent [[OurGodsAreGreater Fal'Cie]] is nothing more than a farm in which "human tools" can be bred by the thousands for an unknown purpose. Worse, midway through the game it's revealed by one of their servants that this unknown purpose is a mass sacrifice by which they can attract ''their'' creator back to the mortal plane.]]
