* Lessa in ''DragonridersOfPern'' starts out as a drudge with a ''very'' overdeveloped sense of vengeance. It takes years for her to finally get a chance at her foe, though she does enact loads of scorched-earth policies in the interim.

For reference, the scullery is a small, hot, sweaty room behind the kitchen, where heavy, dirty, menial work, such as cleaning pots and pans, is carried out. As the most junior-ranking servant in the household, the pay of a scullery maid was below abysmal and she would often be pressed into service doing any unpleasant tasks around the house (like emptying chamber pots) and serving upon the rest of the servants. Most real life (not enslaved) scullery maids only stayed in the position for a year or two, just long enough to get the character reference required to move on to a better job.

* In David Eddings' [[TheBelgariad Belgariad]], powerful sorceress Polgara hides herself and the Chosen One as a cook for a rural farm and her nephew/scullery boy. This works [[spoiler:..sort of. Asharak apparently knew where Garion was the whole time, and they leave because Brill's found out where they are]].

* The two major examples that come to mind are Cinderella and Snow White, naturally.

* In ''[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/authors/jacobs/english/fishring.html The Fish and the Ring]]'', this is the job the girl takes after the Baron throws her out.

* Malborn from ''{{Skyrim}}'' does this in an attempt to avenge his murdered family. It doesn't work out in that regard, but it definitely helps with the dragonpocalypse, anyway.

Even if she's basically been [[MadeASlave enslaved]] into such a position, the Scullery Maid will find some way to prevail. Contrast with {{Meido}}, FrenchMaid, and NinjaMaid for less realistic interpretations of the role. For reference, the scullery is a small, hot, sweaty room behind the kitchen, where heavy, dirty, menial work, such as cleaning pots and pans, is carried out. As the most junior servant in the household, the pay was below abysmal and she would often be pressed into service doing any unpleasant tasks around the house (like emptying chamber pots) and serving upon the rest of the servants. Most real life (not enslaved) scullery maids only stayed in the position for a year or two, just long enough to get the character reference required to move on to a better job.

The SpearCounterpart is also found, particularly in works more carefully based on the HighMiddleAges or earlier. Medevial households generally employed men to work in the scullery, as women were considered strong enough to do the heavy work, it was only during the Victorian Era, when woman began to dominate the servant industry, that the job were mostly given to maids--also, women were cheaper. Compare FarmBoy.
