* Hudson from ''UpstairsDownstairs'', who often puts duty and rectitude before compassion or flexibility, or even his own selfish needs. In one story, he panics when he is seen by Sir Richard at a restaurant entertaining relatives from Australia because he thinks he is aping his betters and thus deserves to be sacked. He is quite shocked when Bellamy doesn't get rid of him, though Bellamy's brother makes him squirm quite a bit.
* Carson from ''DowntonAbbey''. Only WorldWarOne can stop him from running the house perfectly.

* ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' has Raitha, the Silver Adept's personal secretary. She's an ordinary civilian, neither British nor unflappable, but otherwise fits this trope to a [[HypercompetentSidekick hypercompetent]] tee -- a typical day's work includes rescheduling the Adept's appointments, plotting the most expedient interdimensional travel routes, and placating angry gods while the boss is out.

* Tokita, the Itoshiki-family butler in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. He's ultra-competent and ''seems'' more sensible than his employers, although since this is a WorldGoneMad, he has his own quirks.

* Riffael Raffit of ''CountCain'' is an ex-medical-student, beyond competent, devoted to a fault, and always turns up right when his master needs him. [[spoiler: Until it turns out he's [[SplitPersonality even more mentally unstable]] than Cain is, at least.]]

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' had Timmy getting a butler named Jensen. [[PlotHole There didn't seem to be a problem with him seeing Cosmo and Wanda]].

** Most 'Mr Handies' (the actual designation of the robots) have this kind of personality, with variable levels of competence (and sanity) depending on their model and programming. They've also been successfully used as mechanics, lab assistants and doctors, though most models retain the British accent and fussy good manners.
