* 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.

* RobinHobb's ''Literature/LiveshipTraders'' trilogy has all slaves marked with tattoos, showing to whom they have belonged. Unruly slaves who've been sold many times are known as 'mapfaces', and the freed slaves take to calling themselves 'Tattooed' rather than 'ex-slaves'.

* Slaves in ''{{Basara}}'' are branded to mark them as slaves forever. Shuri the Red King was branded when he was ''born'' by his ''[[AbusiveParents own father]]'' after he heard a prophecy foretelling that Shuri would bring misfortune to him. Shuri understandably hates his father and prophets.

Compare MarkOfShame, which this brand is to many slaves. See also SlaveCollar, which is another way of marking a character enslaved, and SlaveRace, where just being born a certain race is enough to mark you as property.
