* Butler from ''Literature/ArtemisFowl,'' who stands by his charge no matter what. Come fairies, interspecies war, magic, or time travel, he will always have Artemis' back, reacting calmly (after maybe a [[DeadpanSnarker wry quip or two]]) to whatever craziness Artemis is involved in this month.


* Mr. Deerfield, Christine's all-purpose butler, from Manga/DaaDaaDaa. He is the one containing Evil Chris when her fits get out of hand, serving as a reverse BerserkButton.

* Moominmama of ''WesternAnimation/TheMoomins'', who even in the face of the numerous magical happenings around Moomin Valley barely ever shows the slightest surprise, concerning herself with housework first and foremost. This even extends to ''when she herself gets shrunk down to miniature size'', and she comments that she'll have to cook smaller portions for dinner from now on.

* [[AGodAmI God]], the dorm leader in ''MariaHolic''. She holds an iron grip over the dormitories, and occasionally shows mercy towards her students, but is definitely smarter than she lets on. Everything is accounted for.
