** 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]''

** Skinner tries to be this to Superintendent Chalmers oh ''so'' hard, but being a high-quality buzz-kill, ''way'' too eager to please (to the point that in trying to please Chalmers he instead ruins things ''hard'') and with his school being such a hell-hole (and DependingOnTheWriter, Chalmers being in favor or against this), Chalmers utterly ''hates'' Skinner's guts (to the point that Chalmers' CatchPhrase is him yelling Skinner's name (and on latter seasons, he just ''cannot'' say Skinner's name (or anything that vaguely sounds like "Skinner") in any other way!)).

* Chad in ''InTheLoop'' takes this trope and tries to turn it into an artform. Unfortunately, he combines it with being a SmugSnake with the result that the people he tries to suck up to barely pay him any attention and everyone else just thinks he's a creep.

* Diethard from ''CodeGeass'' is one of these, a Britannian newshound who joins the Black Knights largely because he sees them as the winning party.

* Qarr TheImp from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has this as his personnal motto. At first working for Kubota by order of his higher-ups (well, lower-ups, since they're from the Lower Planes), he then tries to bind himself to Vaarsuvius (who killed Kubota) and ends up at the service of the IFCC.
