* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: After the Titan Wars, the Eldians remaining outside the Walls were rounded up by the nation of [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Marley]] and imprisoned in ghettos. While they ''claim'' this was an act of mercy, in reality Marley is merely exploiting them for their ability to transform into Titans. Extremely oppressive laws provide an excuse to arrest Eldians for whatever reason, subjecting them to experimentation or transformation into a mindless Titan. These Titans provide the backbone of the Marleyan military, unleashed on the battlefield to slaughter their enemies. With the launching of the Warrior program, Eldian families are encouraged to sell their own children to the military in exchange for better treatment. These children become fanatical TykeBombs that believe their service to Marley will someday earn their kinsmen their freedom. The very best are given the "honor" of hosting one of the Nine Titans, giving them incredible powers in exchange for spending the last 13 years of their life as weapons for the military]].

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' short story ''Aftermath'', [[TheSting 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.

* 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.
