** We later see two other [[spoiler: 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 beside her mistress.

* It's revealed in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' that [[spoiler: Pearl]] is a part of a servant race to other Gems. According to Peridot, [[spoiler: pearls]] are made-to-order servants, and are more status symbols than workers. [[spoiler: 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 original owner) and a persistent inferiority complex.

* Several examples in the ''StarControl'' universe, most clearly the Androsynth who have a [[SinsOfOurFathers grudge against humanity]] for doing this to them. Also, arguably, [[spoiler:the Ur-Quan themselves, who were genetically modified into two subspecies while enslaved by PuppeteerParasite. After their revolt, they modified those puppet masters into subsentience and now keep them on their ships as "Talking Pets" for [[TranslatorMicrobes translation]]]].

* In ''{{Literature/Remnants}}, the species which humans dub "Blue Meanies" call themselves the Children, specifically of the massive spaceship called [[OneBadMother Mother]]. Mother's creators, the [[StarfishAliens Shipwrights]], created the Children to maintain her, but then exiled them for unknown reasons; since the Children still think of Mother as their god, they're trying to regain control. Another species, "Squids," currently do Mother's maintenance, and don't seem self-aware from anything that we see.

* The Hork-Bajir of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' fit this, but not courtesy of the Yeerks. They were created to serve the Arn by tending the trees on their homeworld, even though they never realized this.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'': Golems were this. Then, in ''Discworld/FeetOfClay,'' someone had a very interesting idea -- they bought a golem and gave him to himself. After that first golem worked out independent thought from first principles, they're now quietly and peacefully having a revolution by all buying their freedom.

* Furniture is treated like this in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi''. The anti-fantasy reason they are like this is because [[spoiler:their existence is just a figment of their master's imagination. They have no existence outside of the master's mind, and so naturally, they are created only to serve that master]]. ** For that matter, the word "furniture" as used by Shannon and Kanon [[spoiler:doesn't even refer to one's status as a servant; it's a term used by Yasu to describe how his/her mutilated body means that he/she can't even be considered human.]]

Word cruft.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The Quincies are split into Echt and Gemischt. The Echt boast pure blood lineage and possess certain innate powers at birth. The Gemischt have impure blood, learn all Quincy techniques from scratch, and include Hollow-tainted Echt lineages; they serve the BlueBlood Echt, [[BodyguardingABadass protect]] them from Hollow-taint, and the two groups are [[ArrangedMarriage not supposed to inter-marry]].

However, [[UptownGuy Ryuuken]] [[MarryForLove married]] his Gemischt [[BodyguardCrush bodyguard]], making his son, Uryuu Ishida, Gemischt instead of Echt.
