* Holly Blue Agate of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. She's so much of one that even the Diamonds are annoyed of her.
** The same applies to Yellow Zircon.

* PlayedForLaughs and subverted with Evaristo Espina from the "La Oficina ("The Office") segment in the oldschool Chilean humor show ''Jappening con Ja''. Personality-wise, he has almost all the markings of the trope... but also ''is'' [[UndyingLoyalty fiercely and genuinely loyal]] to his boss, Mr. Zañartu, and this is actually the reason why he is a buttlicker. He's [[EnsembleDarkhorse so iconic]] that in Spanish Chilean slang, the word "espinita" is actually used to define the trope itself.
** Lampshaded in the opening sequence for the skit: when Espina is shown, the background voices start chanting "chupa medias!" ("boot licker") all over. [[BreakingTheFourthWall Espina's exact reactions]] change depending on the episode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6GjTrk1jj0 in this one]], he swats his hand at the audience while trying to protectively shield a picture of Zañartu.

** His father Philip's one-time assistant, one-shot character Edward Haskell from the episode "Robbing the Banks", also fits -- he's so eager to stay in Philip's good graces he does such exhausting tasks as transcribe Philip's law notes to audiotape, a process that by Haskell's own admission takes three days, but one he says is "[[BlatantLies extremely satisfying, not to mention rewarding]]." Will lampshades this in one instance:
-->'''Edward Haskell:''' Oh! I almost forgot one thing!\\
'''Will:''' If it's your nose, I think I know where you left it. ''[indicates Uncle Phil's butt]''
