* ''{{Anime/Bakugan}}'' has Kato, the butler of [[RichKids Marucho]]. [[spoiler:In fact, his unfailing politeness is what ticks [[LivingLieDetector Shun]] off on an impostor [[TheDragon Hal-G]] attempting to misdirect the team. What did Shun notice? The Kato on the radio ''once'' referred to Marucho by his name alone, as opposed to "''[[InsistentTerminology Master]]'' Marucho"]]

The Jeeves is the perfect British butler, valet, or manservant. Always well-dressed, unfailingly polite, devoted to his employer... and usually much smarter or more level-headed than [[UpperClassTwit his employer]], too. Usually can manipulate him so subtly that he does not even have to speak WithDueRespect to achieve his ends.

A somewhat common subversion, which began while Wodehouse was still writing, is to have the butler as a brutish thug (and possibly a BattleButler). Both the original and the subversion are examples of an actually useful kind of valet taken to the logical extreme. After all, if an [[BlueBlood aristocrat]] is in fact foolish and incompetent, then [[ConservationOfCompetence a competent valet is an urgent necessity]] if they are to survive everyday life. Conversely, an aristocrat may find it useful to have a brutish thug on retainer to deal with certain... inconvenient problems.

Note that The Jeeves, even if a valet, is not prone to the NoHeroToHisValet plot, generally having a clear view of his master's faults and virtues, though he may, on occasion, allow his view of the former to jaundice his view of the latter.Usually a HypercompetentSidekick. Complete opposite of the BumblingSidekick.
