* Niles from ''Series/TheNanny''
** Actually, Niles ''mostly'' fits the Trope. He's British, polite, sophisticated, and loyal to his employer... For the most part. Eventually, however, he becomes somewhat of a DeadpanSnarker and the OnlySaneMan in the cast, thinking Maxwell somewhat stubborn for his reluctance to admit his true feelings to Fran. [[spoiler:Eventually, in a late season, he gains enough backbone to finally tell his boss off and speak his true mind about it, and this ''finally'' convinces Maxwell to propose to Fran, and it sticks.]]
** In ''La Niñera'' the Hispanic version of the character also fits the profile; Fidel in the Argentinian remake and Nicolás in the Mexican.

** This has changed over the years. When first introduced, Alfred was primarily there for comic relief, particularly in the role of a self-styled detective who either had to be rescued from the danger his bungling efforts got him into by Batman and Robin, or who triumphed by sheer luck and/or slapstick humour. Later, the detective angle was dropped, but one thing that remained that exemplifies this trope is that Alfred turned up at the door of Wayne Manor one day, announced to a startled Bruce and Dick that he had come to take up the role of butler to the household (which was news to them!), walked in, took up his self-appointed duties and never left. More recent versions of the character have him employed by the Waynes before the murder of Bruce's parents and make him a substitute father to the young orphan. Once the comic aspect was toned down, he's been the perfect gentleman's gentleman -- that is, extrtemely competent at everything he does, with the possible exception of getting Bruce to look ater himself -- with a touch of razor-sharp wit that comes out in occasional glimpses of him as a DeadpanSnarker.
