The Best Butlers in Anime

List RulesVote up the butlers you would trust on your anime estate.

The best anime butlers are exceptionally doting, always ready with tea, a biscuit, and probably a larger than necessary lunch. Their fierce loyalty and unwavering attachment make butlers in anime among of the most likeable characters in their respective series. Impeccably dressed and always well groomed, these butlers watch over their young master or mistress like an impervious, yet immaculate statue. Though they lie wait in the background, quite a few  of the coolest anime butlers aren't afraid to take the stage, or some lives if the situation calls for it.

Often the right-hand of their master who will do anything asked of them, anime butlers bond so tightly with their bosses you might think they're under contract (well, there might be one exception). Some of these butlers come equipped with supernatural abilities, and other times they simply are just naturally badass. These suited attendants are skilled in many areas, making them as versatile as characters as they are employees: from dining to fighting they can always be counted on to serve up something good.
