* ''StarWars ThePhantomMenace''. A literal and extreme example of this is how Anakin and his mother ended up as slaves to Watto. They were originally slaves to Gardulla the Hutt, but she lost them to Watto during a bet on podraces. The novelization and some EU material actually state that Watto is ''way better'' than Gardulla, though still rather harsh. Then during the movie, Qui-Gon Jinn ''inverts'' this trope to ''free'' Anakin during the local podrace.[[spoiler: He succeeds, but unfortunately they have to leave his mother behind as Watto didn;t agree to bet both his slaves. She does get freed later on though]].

Often involves UnresolvedSexualTension, though [[StatusQuoIsGod good luck seeing it resolved]]. Cousin trope to LostHimInACardGame. Subtrope of HumiliatingWager.

* In ''Manga/YuGiOh'', Joey gets this done to him by Duke. Duke wins and puts Joey in a dog suit, forcing him to obey all his commands--until Yugi steps in to free him. It's not treated kinkily in the anime, but that hasn't stopped [[YaoiFangirl fans]] from [[HoYay taking it that way]].

* ''AnExtremelyGoofyMovie''. Max makes a bet with Bradley about who would win the X-Games. The loser would be towel-boy to the other. Though Max wins in the end, he decides to let Brad off on the bet [[spoiler:(the guy was about to get pounded by his betrayed right-hand man anyways).]]

* An episode of ''TraceyMcBean'' involved a dare in which someone had to ride down Mount Massacre. The loser had to be the winner's slave for a whole week. It did sort of border on FoeYay territory.
* ''CloneHigh'' [[PlayedForLaughs does this]] when the principals of two schools competing in a basketball game decide that the losing principal has to do the winner's laundry...[[FauxHorrific for a week]].
