* Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are an artificial race created to be essentially the ''entire population'' of an [[TheEmpire interplanetary empire]]. Gems [[FantasticCasteSystem have many different kinds, each made for a specific task]]. Some are definitely more "servile" than other (contrast the [[CannonFodder foot soldiers]], builders, technicians, and handmaidens/[[BeautifulSlaveGirl living status symbols]] with the aristocrats, generals, and thinkers), but ''all'' of them are made to serve the interests of their creators and ruling authority, the Diamonds. It's only the Crystal Gems who [[GrewBeyondTheirProgramming decided to stop following their creators' orders and be something other than what they were made for]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' has the Meeseeks, who are created by one of Rick's devices to serve a singular purpose and die in a puff of smoke afterwards and as such are a race of {{Death Seeker}}s. However, after one is unable to help Jerry improve his golf swing it creates another Mr. Meeseeks to help, and so on and so forth. When that still doesn't help they promptly go insane and try to kill Jerry due to them living longer than intended.

* The Cynesgans of ''[[TheElenium The Tamuli]]'' started as the offspring of Cyrgai soldiers and the non-Cyrgai women they raped. Originally they were destroyed due to polluting the "purity" of the Cyrgai race, but they were eventually allowed to live as cannon fodder and scapegoats for the Cyrgai. After the Cyrgai were cursed so they could not leave their own lands, the Cynesgans were purposefully bred in an attempt to create an army capable of doing so. The Cyrgai eventually went extinct due to [[TooDumbToLive forgetting to breed more Cyrgai]] and the Cynesgans were left without masters. [[spoiler:The Cyrgai in fact survived and the Cynesgans remained their servants]].

* In the ''Literature/ChakonaSpace'' 'verse [[PettingZooPeople "Morphs"]] were created as slaves in the late 21st century, after WorldWarIII they were given their freedom due to the massive [[DepopulationBomb population crash]]. However, even in the 24th century there are a number of planets outside TheFederation known as the Non-Aligned Worlds where Morphs are still property.

* In ''{{Exalted}}'', First Age Solars created quite a few of these. Some were better-treated than others, with corresponding variance in loyalty now that the Solars are returning and the now-free races are once again coming into contact with their former masters...

* ''NewHorizon'': The Wafans (Wave Form Androids) were created as this. Being sapient and capable of independent thought, this didn't last very long.

The Huragok are mostly fine with this arrangement, since they're by nature almost single-mindedly devoted to working with technology. Of course, this means that they'll happily offer to fix the equipment of anyone who comes across them, even those the rest of the Covenant consider enemies.

* It's revealed in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' that Pearl is a part of a servant race to other Gems. According to Peridot, Pearls are made-to-order servants, and are more status symbols than workers. Pearl is unusual in that she acts as an individual instead of being someone's slave. Her servile origins still show through in some of her behavior, including obsessive loyalty to the people she cares for (including her now-deceased leader Rose Quartz) and a persistent inferiority complex that really caused problems throughout the series.
-->'''Peridot:''' You're an accessory! Somebody's shiny '''toy!'''
** We later see two other Pearls each owned by a Diamond, the ruling class gems. Both are clearly "designed" to mimic their masters' hairstyles, gem placement, and color schemes. Of these two, Blue Diamond's seems to just serve a status symbol [[TheQuietOne who never speaks]], while Yellow Diamond's acts as a [[SassySecretary secretary with a surprising amount of emotion]] in which unlike Blue Diamond's Pearl, she seems to work for her mistress.
