* In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'', one of the standard enemy encounters comprises a Chain Chomp having been infected by a Sworm with [[BigBad Fawful]]'s face. The Mario Bros. can only fight this enemy normally, but, if the Sworm is sticking out of the Chomp's head, Bowser can remove it by inhaling, thus releasing the Chomp from its control and allowing it to run away.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', [[spoiler:Raguel brainwashes people, turning them into technically-living zombies]], getting himself an army that's pretty much unable to resist him unless the brainwashing is fresh enough to be broken through.

* Depending on how heavily brainwashed they are, the Covenant in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. By the end of the second game, [[spoiler:a full-scale civil war has ensued between the Elites and Brutes of the Covenant, with Grunts caught on both sides]].
** Of the Covenant, the Grunts are the most obviously enslaved species. They are at the very bottom of the Covenant Hierarchy, even below the hired mercenaries. They're used for all the menial tasks and militarily are [[ZergRush are used en masse]] due to their apparent [[WeHaveReserves large population and high reproductive rate]]. Killing a Grunt isn't even a crime among the Covenant races.

That said, ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' implies that Grunts have achieved a slightly higher status in post-Covenant factions, likely because they have more recourse to defect if they're ''too'' unhappy; it's even hinted in the background lore that some have broken away and formed their own independent factions.



** Engineers are ActualPacifist biological supercomputers. So what does the Covenant do? Wire them up with bombs and force them to help the war effort. In ''ODST'', you get an achievement for either not killing any engineers of your own free will as the Rookie, or by killing all of them [[spoiler:(a freed engineer, Vergil is actually the MacGuffin of the game)]]. In ''Reach'', their servitude is not explored, and you just shoot them.

That said, there's some HappinessInSlavery involved, since Engineers will happily fix, maintain, and even improve the technology of virtually anyone who comes across them; it just so happens that the Covenant found a lot of them first.

* In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', we're not exactly sure ''what'' is up with the Galatic Mooks, as for some reason do they not only look exactly the same, they have their own weird language and seem to move as one entity. They don't seem to be anything more than mindless dolls.

* In the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics, Poison Ivy often uses spores to create a mind controlled army of mooks. During the ''[[ComicBook/BatmanHush Hush]]'' storyline, she even uses kryptonite infused spores to turn {{Superman}} into a slave mook.
** In ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'' she makes Bruce Wayne a slave mook.

* Quite a few enemy soldiers in ''{{Drakengard}}'' are kidnapped, press-ganged unfortunates. This includes the ''children''...
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', Clover would count as this.
** Also, the Super Mutants.
* Caesar's Legion in ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' is an entire slave army/nation, owned entirely by the autocrat, Caesar. All legionaries are either born into the Legion or were enslaved and forced into the Legion when it assimilated tribes found throughout the Mojave Wasteland. However, legionaries are for the most part BrainwashedAndCrazy and want to fight for the glory of Caesar. Below them are the actual slaves - [[NoWomansLand mostly women]] - which are generally not found in combat, instead being worked to death in Legion camps or working for its [[BreadAndCircuses complacent traders]].

** A more general example is in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path Of Radiance]]. The BigBad Ashnard and his MadScientist Izuka use SuperSerum to warp and control laguz. Though these Feral Laguz are supposedly mindless, they never attack Daein soldiers.

* The Dungeons of ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic'' III and V have this: in III, it's the naturally blind Troglodytes, who are implied to hardly ever be allowed to lead, [[FridgeLogic though a large proportion of their Heroes are in fact Troglodytes, including Shakti, one of the best heroes in the game on short maps]]. In V, the Minotaurs are downgraded to a more clear example of this (in III they were EliteMooks). Also, the Goblins in V, to a [[ChewToy rather absurd extent]].

Most of the slaves are sent elsewhere to a PenalColony, but the stronger ones are conscripted to fight the rebel clans.

* The [[SendInTheClones Clones]] in ''StarWars'' prequels. They're designed to be completely loyal, more intelligent meat-droids who obey orders without question. Nonetheless, they're still quite human, forming family bonds and enjoying their lot in life while serving with their Jedi generals. [[spoiler:When Order 66 comes out, virtually all of them obeyed. The troopers who disobeyed the order were commandos or delta units, clones specifically designed to be more independent minded due to the more complex missions they're assigned.]]
