* ''Literature/{{TheInfected}}'': The titular Infected (think mutants) who are dangerous enough are effectively drafted into the IPB on pain of death. Also, any Infected with healing powers vanishes almost immediately, kidnapped by cartels or the incredibly wealthy.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' short story ''Aftermath'', [[BadassNormal Murphy has to disguise herself as a kidnapper selling a couple of werewolves]] in order to track down and destroy a Fomor group operating in Chicago. Formors are a group of aquatic supernaturals snatching up humans possessing varying degrees of magical talent. It's mentioned that [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] [[BloodMagic blood has several useful properties]], and [[PoweredByAForsakenChild presumably other kinds of magic-users would have unique traits]].

*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Tariatla has a brisk trade in the enslavement of elves, who, in this verse, are basically humans infused with chaotic energy. They're immortal and possess a HealingFactor and so they are used for perpetual labor and dangerous operations, as well as [[SexSlave "eternal virgins"]]. A large part of ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'' is breaking this trade worldwide.



* This is the ambition of the ''Series/DoctorWho'' villain Henry van Statten. [[BullyingADragon Pity his first attempt involves a Dalek.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', the "genomorphs" are this: genetically-engineered/cloned superbeings that are kept under mental control until ordered with a task. In fact, the pilot was a carefully-crafted revolt by the genomorphs to supplant the control of The Light (the OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness which created them) and allow the most human-looking of them (ComicBook/{{Superboy}}) to escape and act as their advocate to the outside world.
** Unfortunately, the Light is still in control, just more subtly, and Superboy has trouble even advocating for himself. Also, they left the same guy who was brainwashed into being head of security for the evil version as head of the reformed version, [[ThereAreNoTherapists instead of getting him some damn therapy]].
** As of season 2, both of them have been cured of this. On the other hand, the Light have started making deals with evil alien forces after advertising humanities potential for superpowers, which means lots of homeless people getting kidnapped and shipped off for human experiments to keep invoking this trope anyway.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' TabletopGame/DarkSun setting, muls ([[HalfHumanHybrid crossbreeds between humans and dwarves]]) have incredible endurance, being able to work three days straight without rest, but are rare due to sterility. Their endurance makes them great slaves, and large numbers are made into gladiators. Slave-hunters will generally put more effort into capturing muls than slaves of other races, and will probably have to because muls sprinting for freedom tend to be BadAss.

* In ''Literature/EmpireStar'' by Creator/SamuelRDelany, the Empire uses Lll as slaves, because it cannot afford not to. The Lll have some sort of (not-well-specified) building power that makes them the only reasonable option for some sorts of projects. However the Empire is not happy with this fact, and uses its own powers to make anyone who is in the presence of the Lll feel great, overwhelming, physically painful sorrow. And anyone who hires Lll laborers must feel this sorrow the whole time.

** This is also what Captain America fears will happen if they sign the [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar Sokovia Accords]]. Given Ross's all-but-apparent glee at having some heroes locked up and others under his thumb, he has no qualms about this.

* The titular organization in ''VideoGame/XCom'' does this a lot to aliens - both by selling their corpses, which is pretty profitable in the beginning, and capturing living ones for interrogation and conducting research.
