* 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.

* The Winkies in ''TheWizardOfOz,'' stated in the original book, though only alluded to in the movie (the "hail to Dorothy, the wicked witch is dead!" scene). Likewise the Winged Monkeys, who only follow the Witch because she has the magic cap.

* 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]].

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'', the Robot Shadows count.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' has, on one level, insane Selkath who serve this function. They're brainwashed by [[spoiler: a massive firaxan shark.]]
* Lizard people in the ''{{Spider-Man}} 3'' video game.
* Creator/Bungie's ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series had the Pfhor, heading a slaver empire whose thralls include [[RestrainingBolt Restraining Bolted]] S'pht cyborgs, captured [[ArtificialIntelligence AIs]], the Drinniol… [[AlternateTimeline And you]].
* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series has Dr. Robotnik's MechaMooks the Badniks, which are powered by the animals trapped inside them.
* ''VideoGame/SpiderManWebOfShadows'' has the symbiotes, which Spidey kills without any WhatTheHellHero speeches.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' after the {{TimeSkip}}, the Sharen clan tries to maintain their rule by enslaving as much of the population as they can get away with, focusing on those unable to pay tribute. 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.]]

{{Mooks}} who have been enslaved, and sometimes considered [[MeatPuppet Meat Puppets]]. If they aren't brainwashed they normally rebel, if only in small numbers (due to fear). Normally played to tug at those tug-proof heartstrings. Nine times out of 10, the brainwashed version won't rebel, and any supporting characters are depressed by their existence. These mooks are normally controlled by the BigBad or are part of a HiveMind, and rarely do things willingly. Slaves enthralled by MoreThanMindControl are less likely to rebel, even against a perniciously BadBoss, and may even HannibalLecture other characters about their suitability for slavery. If they aren't used depressingly, expect them to be comic relief. They can be pushovers or bosses, but they share the fact that they have about as much free will as a zombie. If they rebel, it will be in small numbers normally. On rare occasions they will be a boss, but rarely TheDragon and never the BigBad.
