- In The Humans, apes reign as the dominate species and humans (or “skins”, due to their hairlessness) are animals used as manual labor, lab rats, pets, etc. However, that does little to prevent apes from having sexual relations with humans.

- In one issue of Marvel Team-Up, Tigra is caught by Kraven the Hunter and subjected to a “mnemonic scrambler” (more or less a Slave Collar) that reduces her intelligence to that of a common tiger.

Some would argue that Tigra was actually lucky; years later, Kraven’s madness would be such that he might have turned her into a rug.
- Spawn had a story that followed several dead people through their travails in the afterlife. One of the dangers was an angelic-looking creature descending and carrying one of them away… not for any sort of glory, but because its race valued the souls of entertainers as pets. “Last year it was singers. This year, acrobats.”
- In Transformers: Shattered Glass, the evil Autobot Tailgate finds humans cute and takes Butch Witwicky as a pet, encouraging the other Autobots to do the same.
- An arc for the comic adaptation of The Twilight Zone had a large collection of humans, all seemingly kept prisoner on an alien spaceship. Sometimes they get abducted by a column of light and return traumatized. One man, a former astronaut is desperate to escape and return to Earth, who gets rejected by the rest for rocking the boat. When he finally manages to get out, he learns that there is no Earth to go back to, and that the humans weren’t abducted but saved from its destruction. Demanding an explanation of what they’re supposed to be if not prisoners, he’s given an answer the form of a drawing depicting a kitten. The issue ends on a narration from the aliens, describing them as getting humans as a rescue instead of from a breeder.
