A great assistant provides their boss with the things they need to do their job. This can mean an organized schedule, up-to-date research, fielding calls, or taking on the small tasks.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })For some assistants, however, it means kowtowing, flattering, and generally blowing smoke up the posterior areas of their superiors. This is the domain of the Yes Man.
For them, their boss is the be-all and end-all of their world. If the boss says "Jump!", the good Yes Man says "How high?" The great Yes Man already knows, and follows up by apologizing that his leap was not worthy. The boss may not need or desire this, of course... but if they're a Control Freak, a Neidermeyer, or a Pointy-Haired Boss, you can be sure they'll have or want a Yes Man. Sometimes, they'll have a team of them, led by the Alpha Yes Man.
The reasons for this behaviour can be anything from unshakable love, to spineless fear, to a desire to borrow the power and status of the boss by association. The last type is often the one most likely to act like a mini-tyrant to others when the boss isn't around.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The Yes Man is often not very good at his job, though this is not always the case. Sometimes, most notably when the boss's actual ability is lacking, they can be frighteningly efficient. Go far enough to the extreme in this, and you get the Battle Butler.
The Dragon is sometimes the Yes Man, though just as often goes to the opposite extreme. The Professional Butt-Kisser is almost indistinguishable from the Yes Man, except their devotion is to the position rather than the boss, so they'll treat anyone who gets, steals, or kills for the job the same as their old boss.
Of course, even exceptionally devoted Yes Men can be pushed too far, especially by an over-demanding or bullying boss... and if they are, then the boss had better be careful; The Dog Bites Back.
Also note that yes man trope refers to people who generally behave like this. Occasional instances of this behaviour does not qualify. Even Dilbert and Alice from the Dilbert comic occasionally ends up pretending to agree with their moronic Pointy-Haired Boss, usually simply because they realize he is too thick-headed to understand why he is wrong. This certainly does not make them yes man and woman. They normally give their boss the respect he deserves (absolutely none) and Alice is even occasionally physically abusive of him.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })Not to be confused with the guerilla activist/comedy hoaxters, The Yes Men. For the Jim Carrey film, click here.
Compare Sycophantic Servant, Opinion Flip-Flop. Contrast Commander Contrarian and Honest Advisor. Compare and contrast Servile Snarker and Hypercompetent Sidekick, who usually let their boss think they're one of these. See also I Don't Pay You to Think for when the boss apparently expected an employee to be a yes-man, but they didn't get that.

Chi-Fu from Mulan behaves like an Obstructive Bureaucrat most of the time, probably because he's separated from the real authority, but in the presence of anyone of real power (the General or the Emperor), he turns into one of these, trying to anticipate his superior's words and actions and act accordingly. This is played for comedy at the closing of the film-when the Emperor bows to Mulan, it takes him a quarter of a second to go from oily yes-man fully supporting the execution of the heroine to prostrate on the ground before her.

Heavily discouraged by The Prince. Machiavelli warned that any Prince would be surrounded by flatterers, but in order to encourage the image of the Prince as infallible, he should have advisors whom he trusts to tell him the truth, but only when asked, and only in private. The best form of advisor is one who only thinks of the Prince's interests, rather than his own.

Jeeves from Jeeves and Wooster manages to be this while not only being one of the most frighteningly efficient men in the show and being the only who really runs the show for his (rather moronic) boss, but also is the one to get said boss out of numerous sticky situations. Although "Yes, sir" became stock dialogue from him, if his facial expression showed the slightest sign of disapproval, viewers knew he was going to get his own way in the end.

In 1776, Judge James Wilson is the Yes Man to his fellow Pennsylvania delegate, John Dickinson, who is staunchly against American independence. But when the Second Continental Congress favors independence, Wilson breaks away from Dickinson for the very same reason he initially embraced this trope: he doesn't want to be remembered.

Yellow Submarine has an interesting variant on this trope with the Blue Meanie Max. He starts out saying "yes" to the Blue Meanie Alpha, which gets him in trouble, at which point he switches to "no" but still means "yes." By the end of the movie the Blue Meanie Alpha wants him to say "yes" but he has just gotten used to saying "no, your blueness" (which he at the last minute switches to "yes, your newness"). Seems the Alpha takes pride in making his yes man's natural response the wrong answer.
It's more a case of Bad is Good and Good is Bad on the Meanies' part. They embody the philosophy of "no," but after being exposed to the Nowhere Man's magic, their leader adopts the word "yes" and everything it entails.

Simmons from Red vs. Blue fits the trope in the Red Team as he is smarter and more willing to work then the others (Grif is extremely defiant to the point of desiring to pull a Screw This, I'm Outta Here! on Sarge and is Too Dumb to Live due to his poor physique and Donut is just plain gay). He is The Lancer for the fact he is second in command and willing to find a better alternative to the Red Team's generally dumb ideas. However he still kisses Sarge's ass a lot.

Dethklok would probably get their albums done quicker on Metalocalypse if their producer Dick Knubbler exercised a stronger hand, but unfortunately he's more than happy to go along with whatever the band wants that day (which usually is not making music). This eventually gets him replaced with Abigail, which starts a chain of events that nearly break up the band.

Stuart himself is this to anyone above him. When Jerry was their district manager, he would suck up to him whenever he showed up. Later on, when Jerry quit and named Stuart as his successor, he had to be interviewed by the regional manager, who turned out to have a strong dislike for Jerry. After Stuart found out, he promptly threw him under the bus in order to get the job.

Fallout: New Vegas has Yes Man, a consistently happy robot programmed to help whoever orders him around due to the fact that his owner either couldn't make him work only for him or didn't fix it as some sort of contingency. He agrees with whatever you say, tells you what you want to hear, and gives you tips on where his owner went, and on how to take over Vegas, his previous owners plan.
This is best shown if the player does something detrimental to his plans (not properly dealing with certain factions or deciding to destroy your own Trump Card). He'll just say that it must make sense somehow since you must know what you're doing and goes along with it even though he's very aware that you just made things worse. The most he can do is point out how you've just made things more... Challenging.

In the Arthur special "D.W. and the Beastly Birthday," D.W. has an extended fantasy in which her friends all become monsters in the style of Where the Wild Things Are and she's the queen. However, they all bow to her whims, and so the only monster on the island she ultimately finds interesting is the one that represents her brother Arthur, simply because he has his own personality and won't do everything she says.

In Getting Back on Your Hooves, Checker Monarch's assistant Helping Hoof is a deconstruction. A large amount of his dialog DOES consist of 'Yes Miss Monarch' to the point he has trouble when she wanted him to say no for once. The deconstruction comes from the fact that Helping Hoof is like this because he's completely terrified of his Sociopathic boss and trapped in a Deal with the Devil by her rather than being a suck up.

Ysengrin from Gunnerkrigg Court is perpetually kissing up to Coyote. Word of Tom confirms that this is because he loves Coyote very much—though Ysengrin isn't blind to his boss's shortcomings. Right up to the moment Coyote gives him his strength, upon which Ysengrin brutally kills and devours him before he can even finish his next sentence.

Bravely Default has Victor S. Court, a professional Spiritmaster in the Eternian Forces, and completely whipped by Arcanist Victoria F. Stein. He earnestly wants to help the Grand Marshal's design, but if Victoria says "Burn", he doesn't even ask "How hot?" Killing someone they're supposed to capture simply earns Victoria an "Oh bother..." from the medic. It's eventually revealed that he's atoning for his father using an incredibly dangerous experimental healing process on Ill Girl Victoria, which trapped her in a child's body and caused her to suffer chronic seizures that could kill her without treatment.

Transformers Armada's Demolishor normally functions as one, though he has been known to occasionally have doubts.
Speaking of Transformers... Lugnut from Transformers Animated. One has to wonder how well Megatron knew his troops when he wonders if Lugnut is loyal. He is. Loudly. With lots of "for the glory of Megatron!" and "whatever the great and glorious Megatron commands!" So much so that it eventually starts to get on Megatron's nerves.
Also, Inferno, being an insect-bot, to Megatron from Beast Wars: "Yes, my Queen!"

Mega Man: Defender of the Human Race
Scott Erickson, Vickers' second in command. While he does make subtle attempts to guide his boss towards better decisions, he lacks the backbone to completely disagree with him. In the end, when those decisions result in Erickson nearly getting mugged by Mr. Black and the company loosing major good publicity and millions of dollars, he finally is forced to grow out of this and leads the board to getting Vickers kicked out.
Tiesel Bonne becomes this to the Conduit, less because of willing dedication to the cause and more because he's flat out terrified of what the Conduit would do to his family if he doesn't comply. Like Erickson, Tiesel moves out of this trope when he sees an opening and helps to take down the Conduit's henchmen.

Owen, Xanatos's second, on Gargoyles is an example of a slightly-more-free-willed Yes Man, who is also something of a Battle Butler. However, regardless of his competence, he is actually bound by magic to serve Xanatos for his lifetime. So while he can raise objections and suggestions, when Xanatos finalizes his decision he must carry it out. This could be troublesome, as Xanatos seeks immortality, and Owen, as Puck, is already immortal.
Owen's actually something of a subversion. He on Xanatos' side, but he's never afraid to criticize him, and Xanatos deeply respects his opinion. The reason he's bound by magic is that Xanatos chose that binding over Puck's offer of one catch-free wish.
In fact, Xanatos said he'd fire Owen if he ever let him win at Judo, rather than going all out. Clearly X doesn't like yes-men.
Given what a Magnificent Bastard Xanatos is, he recognizes the folly of having a Yes-Man when attempting a Xanatos Gambit. An Honest Advisor devoted to you will pick out the flaws in your plans and provide an intellectual foil to keep your wits strong.

Discussed in Death on the Nile. Socialite Linnet Doyle approaches Hercule Poirot to hire him to persuade Jacqueline de Bellefort, whose fiance she stole and married, to back off from the campaign of harassment she's been subjecting her to. Poirot refuses and points out politely but firmly that Linnet's own conduct is far from above reproach and her own actions clearly demonstrate that, despite appearances, she feels guilty for what she's done. At a later encounter, Linnet treats Poirot coolly, and Poirot realises to his amusement that Linnet is so used to the people around her acquiescing to and agreeing with her that she's completely unprepared to cope with someone who actually tells her the blunt truth.

The Daria episode "Mart of Darkness" mostly takes place at a Costco-like discount warehouse, where the various characters interact with one of the clerks giving out free samples of deep-fried cheese logs. Whatever they want the cheese logs to be, she assures them that it's exactly what they are, be it healthy or unhealthy. She even contradicts herself: she assures the Fashion Club that they are calorie-free, right after telling Mr. DiMartino that they are 1,000 calories apiece and therefore enough to constitute an entire meal.

Kevan Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire at first appears one to his older brother, Lord Tywin. He turns out to be a subversion, as he actually does think for himself and only agrees with Tywin so often because Tywin usually is doing the best thing for their House. By contrast, after Tywin dies, new Regent Cersei expects her uncle to become her Yes Man and in shocked when he refuses. The council she ends up appointing is indeed composed entirely of those people who most successfully appeal to her vanity and paranoia (or whose appointment would most annoy her rivals), and she sees any disagreement from them as rebellion.

Baby 5 from One Piece never turns down a request, both from her boss and virtually anyone else, due to believing it'll make her useful. At first, it's a Running Gag that's Played for Laughs, then we realize that's she's psychologically incapable of turning down requests, due to being abandoned by her mother as a child for being "useless". Doflamingo and the rest of the Donquixote Pirates find the prospect of someone who'll do anything for them delightful, and don't even attempt to fix this negative aspect of hers. Oh, did we mention one of said requests includes ATTEMPTING TO KILL HERSELF?

Kitten from If the Emperor Had a Text-to-Speech Device is basically a brainwashed idiot whose only function is to be the Emperor's defender and Yes-Man. His psychical programming is starting to fail, though, as he confesses to Magnus that he starts to have his doubts.

Al Borland of Home Improvement acts like this around superiors. In one episode, he spoke to the president of their company more like one would the President of the United States, prompting Tim Allen's character to ask "Why don't you just glue your lips to his butt?" Later in that same episode, Tim brought Al along to discuss an agreement they both had with that very president on the logic that "if a suck up like you complains he has to take it seriously."

Jessie's Wobbuffet in Pokémon. Its Japanese name, ソーナンス Sōnansu, roughly translates to "That's how it is."
Similarly Inkay is a pun of "Okay" in English, while it's Japanese name Maaiika, is a play on "Oh, all right". Much like Wobbuffet, James' Inkay in particular is very loyal to Team Rocket.

Stephanie McMahon has been accused of this in Real Life. Shortly after she was named Head of Creative in 2002, she began hiring Hollywood TV writers. The story goes that the people on the creative team who had a background in professional wrestling questioned her ideas and decisions so much (she was only 25 years old at the time she got the job, in addition to being the boss' daughter) that she sought to get rid of them and replace them with people who weren't going to question her. This is considered one of the reasons WWE went into a Dork Age following the highly-successful Attitude Era.

Doctor Who: "The Long Game" has an unusual take on the trope. Cathica Santini Kidane is an ambitious, ladder-climbing suck-up who is willing to do whatever it takes to get that promotion to Floor 500. Even after she gets there and realizes the walls aren't made of gold, she seems more upset by the fact that she wasn't promoted years before than anything else. It's implied that everyone who worked for Satellite 5 was trying to get to Floor 500, but she was the most blatant about it. Interestingly, however, she winds up saving the day by sabotaging the computer systems to kill the Jagrafess.

Robin Hood (2010) has an early scene, where the Richard the Lionheart is inspecting his encamped troops, and asks a lowly longbowman Robin Longstride if what they did during the Crusades was right and God approved. Robin, after some hesitation, chooses to be honest with his king, saying that no, the things that they did in the Holy Land did not please God. Richard praises the man for having the courage and integrity to speak honestly to his liege, then condemns him for having the foolishness to tell his liege something he would rather not hear and has him thrown in the stockades.

In Assassin's Creed II, Silvio Barbarigo mocks fellow conspirator, Carlo Grimaldi's, attempts of winning the trust of the Doge of Venice by telling him that he has become a Yes Man instead.

Gavin, the CEO of Hooli on Silicon Valley is an overbearing and rather self-involved man whose biggest failing is that he's such a terrifying presence that people are afraid to give him any bad news. This bites him in the ass when he boasts of how his Nucleus program will run a live-stream of a major UFC fight... and none of his underlings have the courage to tell him the program is anywhere from six weeks to six months from actually working.
After the stream is an epic disaster, Gavin seems to understand what's happening and asks his self-help guru if "I scare people so much that they can't tell me the truth?" Of course, the guru tells him that's not the case.

In The Legend of Korra the businessman Varrick is surrounded by these, who are too worried about Varrick being mad to tell him that the swami he hired can't actually let him levitate. When Bolin innocently states the obvious that Varrick is in fact not levitating, Varrick instantly takes a liking to him, and by association Asami who was there to do business.

Ryuunosuke towards Takeru in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. His bootlicking of the team's leader is taken to comic proportions. He's been training to become a monster slaying samurai all his life, and will not let himself look bad at all. Part of his character development is learning to drop this trait.

The Jellyspotters from Spongebob Squarepants are a team of yes men. Until SpongeBob proves more worthy than their leader, then they become his yes men.
Bob himself has become a yes man to his boss Mr. Krabs at times over the years.

Speaking of Transformers... Lugnut from Transformers Animated. One has to wonder how well Megatron knew his troops when he wonders if Lugnut is loyal. He is. Loudly. With lots of "for the glory of Megatron!" and "whatever the great and glorious Megatron commands!" So much so that it eventually starts to get on Megatron's nerves.

Koizumi from Haruhi Suzumiya happily agrees with everything Haruhi says, even things like shooting photos of Mikuru in embarrasing poses and outfits (much to Mikuru's dismay) and kisses her ass like a pro to boot. He will however, try to convince Haruhi of other possibilities, if the situation gets too serious. Because Haruhi is Genre Savvy, he compares it to other fictional happenings, but it doesn't always work out good for him.
