* The Sheikah have had this role in ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' ever since ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''. They are a race who have devoted themselves since near the creation of Hyrule to carrying out the will of [[GodOfGood Hylia]] and protecting both the Royal Family that has inherited the goddess's blessing and powers (i.e. Zelda) and TheChosenOne tasked with personally defeating the BigBad of a particular era (i.e. Link). To carry out these tasks, they have been gifted with magic {{Ninja}} powers, [[LongLived long lives]], and an innate skill with {{Magitek}}. The "servant" angle appears to be more cultural than genetic, however, as whatever duty individual Sheikah may initially feel beholden to with the protagonists usually gives way to genuine personal loyalty, whether that be Impa's close friendship with Zelda in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' or Paya's [[SmittenTeenageGirl intense crush]] on Link in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]''. Plus, the presence of the [[EvilCounterpart Yiga Clan]] shows that they are perfectly capable of rejecting the whole servant role.

** The specifics are unclear, but it seems likely the Old Gods created the forbearers of the Mantid, Qiraji, and Nerubians, as well as the elementals, to serve and worship them.

** The specifics are unclear, but it seems likely Faceless Ones and Aqir were born from the primordial ooze seeping from the Old Gods created and were subsequently enslaved. The Faceless Ones served as priests and soldiers while the forbearers of the Mantid, Qiraji, and Aqir were used for labor. The Mantids, Nerubians, as well and Qiraji who descended from the Aqir are still deeply tied to the Old Gods, though the Nerubians have not shown the same loyalty as the elementals, to serve and worship them.others.

* While {{Disney}} does their best to play this down, the User-Believer programs of the ''Film/{{Tron}}'' universe technically are this to their human creators, who they revere as creator Gods. The twist is that most humans don't have a clue that their software is sentient. [[WhatIfGodWasOneOfUs Of the ones in the franchise who did find out?]] Kevin Flynn embraced it [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} (until it blew up in his face).]] [[{{Tron20}} Jet Bradley]] had a mental breakdown and refused to touch a computer for months.

* In ''OrionsArm'' most [[PettingZooPeople Splices]], [[UpliftedAnimal Provolves]], and Vecs ([[SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence sapient robots]]) were originally created for this purpose. However the Sapient Rights Accords signed by most hu-friendly polities granted them their freedoms, that and the rise of the Transapients and [[DeusEstMachina Archailects]] kind of rendered it a moot point when most modosophonts found themselves under the virtual thumbs of entities far more intelligent than themselves.

* The robots in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} were like this, but they eventually were granted some degree of freedom. How free they are depends on the episode, in one is said that there was even a robot president, in others is shown that robots still can be handle against their will as when the President activates their "patriotic circuits".

* The Hertasi, a reptilian race created by a wizard in MercedesLackey's ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series. They serve the [[MagicalNativeAmerican Hawkbrothers]] in return for protection, as both species live in a {{lost woods}} contaminated by {{wild magic}}. Some Hertasi live more independently in areas that have been magically cleaned.
