Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A worshipful, perfectly willing slave of the Big Bad. Generally he's of only marginal usefulness, due to his incompetence and/or obsessions — or due to his fear of the boss' ire robbing him of all initiative.
An example of Happiness in Slavery; The Igor is a variation of this. If the Big Bad is a vampire and he's "promised" the same fate to his loyal servant, may overlap with Vampire Vannabe and The Renfield. More generally, liable to a Pretender Diss both from those they (hope to) serve and their enemies. See also Dirty Coward (for reasons why someone would become this trope)
Contrast with the Battle Butler and Yes-Man. Sometimes overlaps with Crusty Caretaker and Professional Butt-Kisser, though the latter is in it only in order to look out for his own status while the sycophant has a genuine amount of admiration and adoration for his boss. If the character endures endless abuse at the hands of their master, then they're a Bumbling Sidekick. May overlap with Vile Villain, Laughable Lackey if their boss is a noticeably more serious villain. Just about the polar opposite of The Starscream, although it's not uncommon for The Starscream to pretend to be this trope. See also Transhuman Treachery.

Ishida Mitsunari from the third game of Sengoku Basara is implied to have been one of these to Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the prequel manga. Unfortunately for anyone who shows the slightest sign of wanting to oppose Hideyoshi, Mitsunari is terrifyingly good at his job.

The Mental State: Paul Sorrell's main tactic for surviving in prison is ingratiating himself with whichever gang-leader happens to be in the most control at the time. This is originally Bones, until Zack usurps him.

X-Men:
Toad lived down to his name in this manner for Magneto for much of the original 1960s X-Men run. In an alternate future, the Earth's poles shifted, somehow causing Toad and Magneto's powers to be switched. Toad took the opportunity to turn Mags into a slave for his enjoyment as payback for the mountains of abuse he'd suffered at his hand.
Magneto in his earlier days liked these kinds of bootlickers. He also had Peeper in the second Brotherhood/Mutant Force and Amphibius in the Savage Land Mutates.
Also, Nightcrawler encountered an alternate self who served this purpose for Belasco. In an alternate future, it's determined Nightcrawler -becomes- Belasco. So, um.

Mercy Graves is similar toward Lex Luthor in Superman: The Animated Series, although it's somewhat implied that she's in love with him too, her loyalty comes from the fact that he took her out of the streets and that's why she's devoted to him. It's not mutual as the series shows that Luthor doesn't care for her at all.

Angel:
Knox is a follower of the ancient demon Illyria before he resurrects her and even more of a slavish follower after her resurrection. Having been dead to that point Illyria had no direct contact with him before her return.
Also Harmony, who lampshades her efforts when describing herself as "extremely sycophantic" when introduced as Angel`s new secretary.

Looney Tunes has Chester who was very much a fawning, drooling lackey to Spike despite being used as a punching-bag by him. He encouraged his hero to beat up a cat to cheer him up. By the end, things get to be a little different... The fact that Spike pays for his bullying ways by getting the snot beaten out of him by an escaped panther and ends up a Nervous Wreck and sucking up to Chester the same way that Chester was a sycophant who was abused by Spike makes for some hilariously ironic Laser-Guided Karma.

The Weasel-like Tim Stamper from House of Cards (UK) is Francis Urquhart's Sycophantic Servant. Subverted in that in the sequel To Play the King he attempts to double-cross his boss after feeling his efforts aren't appreciated. Sadly for Tim, Francis is far and away the more Magnificent Bastard of the two.

DC Animated Universe:
Batman: The Animated Series: Harley Quinn's obsession with The Joker is so bad, that in an episode wherein he is perfectly willing to leave her in the city while he nukes it and she is about to quit, he gets her back in one line. This is completely in character.
Mercy Graves is similar toward Lex Luthor in Superman: The Animated Series, although it's somewhat implied that she's in love with him too, her loyalty comes from the fact that he took her out of the streets and that's why she's devoted to him. It's not mutual as the series shows that Luthor doesn't care for her at all.
Both of these examples pale before the relationship between the Ventriloquist has with Scarface (a ventriloquist dummy who harbors an evil personality), laughing at every Stealth Insult the Catchphrase Insult Scarface throws at him. Really depressing.

Wormtail in the Harry Potter series. First he latched onto James and his friends because they were some of the most popular boys in school, and later he sought out Voldemort because he was likewise powerful. Unfortunately, the only skill Wormtail has that make him at all valuable is his ability to take abuse.

Webwork: Jumper, one of the biker girls that Jade forcibly recruits and transforms to serve as her new Quirky Miniboss Squad, immediately latches onto her new leader. Widow, the former leader of the gang, isn't surprised; she describes Jumper as a "chronic ass-kisser", and admits that it makes perfect sense for her to switch loyalties from Widow to Jade like that, since she apparently did the same thing when Widow took over the gang. It gets to the point where even Jade herself is disturbed at the utter devotion, and wishes that Jumper would show a little more independence.

Kael'thas has become this to Kil'Jaeden in World of Warcraft due to a mix of Fel Magic taint and his own hunger for power. His blind, zealous and borderline loving devotion to the Legion Lord is very creepy. Though it might have something to do with the fact that he was brought back from near-death by Kil'jaeden's demons. Before that he seemed quite sane.

In G1 The Transformers:
Cyclonus is Galvatron's Sycophantic Servant. His exact level of competence is plot-reliant, but generally he's described as quite powerful and skilled—he could even lead the Decepticons if he weren't so devoted to Galvatron.
Ditto for Shockwave's relationship to Megatron, before The Movie (of course this is somewhat in contrast to his role in the comics).

In Overlord (2012) pretty much all the creatures of Nazarick, especially the Guardians, act like this towards Ainz, treating him like a god, being unquestionably loyal to him, and willing to end their lives for him. Justified, in that Ainz and his former guild members created them as NPCs to serve them back in YGGDRASIL, so when they were all brought to life in the New World they were made automatically utterly loyal to their creators.

Toadie from Adventures of the Gummi Bears, true to his name he tried to make up for being tiny for a troll by continually sucking up to his boss the Duke despite the Duke constantly taking his anger out on the little guy. Justified in the sense that while the Duke is a pain, at least associating with him gives him some semblance of authority over the regular ogres who casually abuse him out of fun.

New Avengers (2015): The Maker has the insect men who make up his organization WHISPER, who pretty much worship him for giving them life. On occasion, they're a little too sycophantic for his tastes, declaring how proud they are to record his enemies on the can for him. That their creation appears to involve the Maker removing peoples' brains might have something to do with this.

Star Wars: The Old Republic:
The Jedi Knight deals with a cult of fanatical Emperor-worshiping Imperials. They're fully onboard with the Emperor's plan to destroy Belsavis and the rest of the galaxy, even though they're not meant to survive it, because he's promised to bring them back afterwards.
All Imperial characters get the droid 2V-R8 as as a servant on their ship and as a companion (thought not an especially useful one). Anytime you walk by it will start singing your praises and talking about how great you are.

Batman: Ever since his first appearance in the '70s, Ra's Al-Ghul has a completely loyal hulking manservant named Ubu, who worships the ground he walks on. After a couple of apparent deaths the character is still around, so it is revealed that there's an entire Ubu clan, and they all serve Ras.

Damane in The Wheel of Time are forced to become this after some hard core Mind Rape from the Seanchan. There's a scene in the first book where they appear when Nynaeve frees one out of pity, and the damane without missing a beat starts screaming, begging her slaver to put back on her leash. It's a little creepy.

In The Elder Scrolls series, this tends to be a trait of the members of the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal organization of assassins whose membership mostly takes a sadistic glee in killing and who practice a Religion of Evil dedicated to Sithis, the embodiment of the primeval force of chaos. They are led by the Night Mother, an unholy matron said to be the "wife" of Sithis who communicates targets for assassination to the Listener. In Skyrim, Cicero, is the Keeper of the Night Mother to whom he is slavishly devoted. He constantly begs to hear her voice call to him, something that only happens to the Listener (in this case, the Dragonborn). Also, if you decide to spare him, he returns in the end of the questline and becomes this to you.

Toad lived down to his name in this manner for Magneto for much of the original 1960s X-Men run. In an alternate future, the Earth's poles shifted, somehow causing Toad and Magneto's powers to be switched. Toad took the opportunity to turn Mags into a slave for his enjoyment as payback for the mountains of abuse he'd suffered at his hand.

Jeremiah Gottwald to Lelouch from Code Geass, towards the latter half of the second season. Notably, this guy not only joins Lelouch to zealously prove his LOYALTY, he joins after he's become far more badass than ever before. And then he tops himself in the finale. This was all brought on by the fans' love of the character.

A non-villainous example (depending on what your definition of villainy is) are Cory, Trevor, and Jacob Collins in Trailer Park Boys to Ricky and Julian. In seasons 1-7, Cory and Trevor are Those Two Guys who hero worship Ricky, whereas Jacob Collins has a mancrush on Julian to the point where he starts dressing and acting like him. Ricky and Julian, meanwhile, see them as little more than jail cover and goons to do their bidding in their various schemes (though in Ricky's warped perception, he thinks of how he treats Cory and Trevor as how one would a best friend/family, and Julian does care about Jacob). Cory and Jacob eventually become Those Two Guys together from season 8 onward, where Ricky gains more respect for Jacob as he becomes Ricky's son-in-law. Taken Up to Eleven in the season 8 finale, in which Cory and Jacob are dressed as Ricky and Julian respectively as a diversion. Cory is shot and the two are eventually sent to prison; the two gush that they've earned more of the boys' respect for doing their job well and Cory mentions that being shot and sent to jail "as Ricky" is one of the better moments of his life.

In Part 3 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Vanilla Ice, the Sycophantic Servant of Big Bad Dio, does manage to kill off two of the main cast. Ice was such a sycophant that when Dio asked him if he would kill himself for him, Ice not only IMMEDIATELY did so, but did so by CUTTING OFF HIS OWN HEAD. Dio, averting Bad Boss (somewhat, as he did it because he was amused), rewarded him for his loyalty by turning him into a vampire, which allowed Ice to return to (un)life. His devotion to Dio is so fanatical that merely destroying a statue of Dio sends him into a rage.

Transformers Animated:
Lugnut is a borderline case, though it's more fanaticism than slavishness: in some episodes he seems to practically worship Megatron... and in others, there's no "practically" about it. He's also more badass than most Sycophantic Servant, ever ready to use his hundreds of missiles, his warhammer, and The Punch of Kill Everything to level Autobots (and the entire city block they happen to be in) in the name of the grand and glorious MEGATRON!
Starscream is stated to have put on a sycophantic act prior to betraying Megatron, later one of his clones (who each represent different aspect of his character), Sunstorm, embodies that, being both outwardly sycophantic but not-so-secretly untrustworthy.

Doctor Who:
When the Sixth Doctor encounters the alien Sil for the second time, it is on his home planet where he also meets Sil's superior, Lord Kiv. The slimy obsequiousness that Sil demonstrates at every opportunity becomes too much even for Kiv at one point.
"New Earth": Chip, Lady Cassandra's specially-grown clone servant, is utterly devoted to her despite her rather apathetically abandoning him at one point in the episode. He cheerfully donates his body as a host for her at the end, even scolding the Doctor for objecting.

Pat Patterson and Gerald Briscoe to "Mr. MacMahon". What makes them different to most of the other people working closely with Vince was Pat and Gerald legitimately thought Vince was the light of their lives and never aligned themselves with him out of greed, power or fame.

In another Transformers example, there's Inferno from Beast Wars, who could probably give Lugnut a run for his money in the obsession department. Perhaps a semi-subversion, as his competence level varies throughout the series (due to being an Ax-Crazy pyromaniac who thinks he's an actual fire ant), but his loyalty never does. Inferno doesn't seem to have a choice in the matter either. It's implied that his ant mode's instincts overpower his programming, leading to his delusion of thinking he's an actual fire ant and his absolute loyalty to Megatron as Queen of the colony.
