* {{Archer}} has a butler named [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Woodhouse]] ([[Creator/PGWodehouse get it?]]) who is definitely more down-to-earth than his employer. Unusually, in contrast to the norm wherein TheJeeves is the one "really in charge", Archer treats Woodhouse like shit (although we frequently get hints that the valet has his own little ways of getting revenge).

* Most of the stewards of the [[Literature/HonorHarrington Royal Manticoran Navy]]. Not so much the part about being smarter or more level-headed, but definitely the part about manipulating the captains, commodores and admirals they serve into being properly dressed and fed, and at providing proper hospitality even at the most awkward times or when the most unusual and unexpected guests show up.

* From ''TheKingdomsofEvil'', Mr. Skree
* ''InDeath'': Summerset, a butler who is naturally British. However, he doesn't seem interested in manipulating his employer Roarke very much.

* Fred's family butler Heathcliff in ''Disney/BigHero6''. He remains completely stoic and unruffled even as the team practices and tests their weapons with him as the target.

* 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.
