** High Lady Antillus Dorotea is collared by Sarl, who is then killed so it's impossible to remove. Soon after, the Canim start liberating slaves, who are not very kindly disposed towards nobles, and would be particularly hostile to a relative of High Lord Kalarus, who's notorious for his monopoly on slavery. Tavi, learning about this after the fact, shudders to think what must have been done to Dorotea (or what she was ordered to do) by angry, vengeful former slaves, who would have ''no'' mercy just because she was collared and couldn't refuse.

** When the Vord Queen gets her hands on the making and use of discipline collars, she uses Brencis Kalarus to brainwash and enslave stronger furycrafters into much the same mindset as his father's mindless 'Immortals', only now serving her. Amara witnesses part of one conversion process, which is creepy and disturbing enough on its own, and later comes face to face with one of her collared fellow Cursors in the heat of battle - who promptly and calmly tries to kill her.

* The slave discipline collars in ''Codex Alera''. Once put on a person, they can only be taken off by the person who put them on in the first place; otherwise, the wearer will die. They cause the wearer extreme pleasure for following orders, particularly the orders of the one who put the collar on; they also cause extreme agony (that will kill, if it persists long enough) for disobeying said orders. If children are raised wearing one of these collars, they can be shaped into mindless machines so intent on doing the will of their master that they will ''happily'' hack off their own limbs in order to better follow his/her commands.

** The vord are basically the Zerg from _Starcraft_. Even with bleeding-edge technology like power-armor and advanced weaponry, as well as centuries of experience fighting against these things, they're _still_ a major threat; imagine what trying to fight them with normal metal plate armor, swords, and spears would be like. Even the power of the elements is often not enough, as these buggers are _smart_.

* [[HordeOfAlienLocusts The Vord]] from the same series are no slouches at this either. Imagine giant insects that are collectively smarter than 99% of humans, live only to consume everything in their path, can sent parasites to take over your body that, unlike the Yeerks of Literature/{{Animorphs}} ''completey destroy your original personality beyond all hope of recall'', and basically have the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil as a superpower. Kill some? Great, but the Vord Queen will just breed new warriors without the earlier models' weaknesses. Fun times. And when the Vord start learning to work the aforementioned discipline collars- well, if we had a trope called something like "Crowning Moment of Nightmare Fuel'', that would be it.

** The [[PuppeteerParasite takers]]. They numb you up with poison and crawl inside you, where they obliterate your personality but keep you memory and skills intact. They also give the victim SuperStrength and suppress pain, resulting in scenes of taken children and old people literally ripping people apart and disregarding any sort of injury that doesn't immediately kill them.

** The aforementioned breeding power allows them to make warriors that can furycraft, meaning that you have ''magical'' alien locusts on top of everything else. And they also have a biological imperative to [[OmnicidalManiac kill everything that isn't them]].

*** To drive home just [[FateWorseThanDeath how bad it is]], Odiana reacts [[AintTooProudToBeg worse]] to the threat of having to wear one than she does to being ''raped''.


Added DiffLines:

** The reason why she's AxCrazy qualifies as well. Her family was sold into slavery, and most of them were murdered on the spot for not having enough market value. She herself was gang-raped by the slavers, and [[FromBadToWorse she got her watercrafting powers during this]]. As a result, she was bombarded with the emotions of her attackers and went completely off the deep end due to the trauma. [[HarmfulToMinors She was eleven years old when this happened]].
