* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', slaves of the World Nobility are marked on their backs with the "Hoof of the Soaring Dragon." This brand is meant to impress upon them the fact that they are less than human.
** A group of slaves who were freed and became pirates altered this mark into one resembling a sun, which everyone on the crew, slave or not, adopted to remove the distinction of freeman and ex-slave.
** Another set, one of whom is pictured on the image links page, took great pains to hide the mark, claiming it to be the result of a curse that caused anyone to see their backs to petrify.

** Brands are occasionally used for other purposes - the [[ThievesGuild Caste of Thieves]] brands their members with a small mark on the cheek, for example. Qualius the blind Kaissa player has a kef on his forehead, but that was because of torture, not slavery.
* The mark of slavery for house elves in ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is the lack of real clothes; most wear pillowcases and tea-towels and such. Being given clothes is equivalent to being freed...and usually regarded as a fate worse than death.
** This makes perfect sense when you understand that house elves are normally freed only if their service is grossly inadequate, so being freed is the equivalent of being ''sacked in utter disgrace''. This - along with the fact that Dobby was an exception among house-elves - is the thing Hermione fails to comprehend.

* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', casteless dwarves are marked by facial tattoos.
** Tranquil mages (mages who have had their magical ability forcibly stripped from them) have a sun brand on their forehead, which is apparently a symbol of the Chantry. This is only actually visually present in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', but it is mentioned in the first game.
*** It also resembles a lobotomy scar, which is pretty close to what Tranquilization is supposed to represent.

* In the "Ravnica" story arc in ''MagicTheGathering'', one of the ten guilds--the Orzhov, the Black/White aligned CorruptChurch, uses its guild signet (a black sun with twelve rays) to denote master (worn as jewelry) or slave (tattooed to a debtor).
* In ''{{Exalted}}'', [[HumanSacrifice sacrificing a living human in the name of a deceased human]] will cause the sacrificed to become a slave-ghost to the person they were sacrificed to. The ghost-body of the slave bears a special mark that will never disappear, even if body-altering ghost-magic is used. Special ghost-apparel that can hide this mark is highly valued in the Underworld.
