20+ Best Discord Bots You Must Have on Your Server

simonholdorf profile image Simon Holdorf Originally published at thesmartcoder.dev Updated on ・15 min read

Discord is one of the best and most-used chat services for gamers, developers, and other people. It's often used to discuss strategies in games, talk trash about opponents, and more. However, Discord also has a robust collection of text channels that developers can use to communicate with players. The beauty of Discord is that it is free and cross-platform (available on Android, Windows, macOS, Linux, IOS).

Whether you are a gamer or not, Discord slowly becomes the number one app for sharing ideas, getting to know people, and learning new things. There are many Discord servers out there dedicated to developers covering topics like programming languages, pair-programming, projects, and much more!

The best part about having a Discord server is the fact that you have full control over who can join it. You don't need to worry about trolls joining your Discord server and creating havoc or throwing off the community vibe. This allows you as a server administrator to have an open channel where you can communicate with your members on the platform they love using while keeping the community less toxic at the same time.

But taking care of your Discord server and your members manually can be very time-consuming and frustrating. Here come Discord Bots into play.

Discord Bots are the third-party tools that can enhance the user experience on Discord. Most of them are advanced chatbots that can perform multiple functions like playing music, monitoring your servers, tracking your statistics, adding a role to your server, etc. Some of them are so powerful that they can easily replace human administrators/moderators. There are moderation bots, music bots, fun bots, gaming bots, and many more.

To help you find the best Discord bots for your Discord server, we have compiled an extensive list of 20 of the best bots for Discord.

Dyno Bot

What is Dyno Bot
When it comes to managing data on discord servers and moderating different channels, Dyno Bot for Discord is one of the most powerful bots available. The bot has a wide range of functionalities, making it very interesting and easy to use for any discord server owner.

One of the reasons you can benefit from using the Dyno Bot on your discord server is that this feature will allow you to assign roles to specific users or set permissions for particular channels.

It will give you the power to control who joins your discord server if you want to limit it only to people you know or trust. You can filter out unwanted profiles using specific words in their nicknames or bios and ban them automatically without having to leave the app or browser tab where you are chatting with other users on your discord channel.

Suppose somebody breaks a rule that applies in one of the channels. In that case, all you need to do is mark this user with a role that will cause him/her not to join the channel anymore but still be able to talk with other users of your server when they are in different channels.

You can define roles for each user to access individual channels while others remain hidden and private. This functionality allows you to distinguish between moderators and regular members since those who belong in higher rank may get more power and greater access rights than ordinary members.

Here are some of the most helpful features:

Moderation Tools: For managing channels, dyno bot provides you with a lot of moderation tools like auto roles, ban and kick users, user status.

Music Services: This feature comes in handy when playing music on Discord servers. It also allows you to add songs in your library for different channels.

Roles and Permissions: You can configure custom roles or permissions in Dyno Bot and assign them to specific users/groups within the server based on their preferences. Dyno Bot also supports permission configurations for each channel separately.

Embedded Commands: With this feature, you can create commands that perform an individual action whenever someone types it into the chat. For example, if someone types !ping into the chat, it will send back the response "Ping" and other information about your server's latency and more!

Web Dashboard: Dyno offers a feature-rich, web-based Dashboard for you to easily configure and enable/disable everything related to the Dyno Bot.

Other Features: There are many more features offered by Dyno Bot, which include creating polls from messages sent by a user/group in chat; embedding any link or image shared by anyone at any time; creating notes from pictures uploaded by group members; posting YouTube or Twitch videos directly onto the server using embedded URLs, etc.

Hydra Bot

hydra bot for discord
Hydra Bot is a Discord bot that plays music for you and your server.

How is Hydra Bot for Discord different from the other bots?

There are many music bots out there. But not like this one. Hydra plays music in more ways than one: it supports YouTube, SoundCloud, Twitch streams, and more!

Hydra also does many things other bots can't do, such as:
playing songs by their album name, searching for playlists on YouTube, and opening the videos on your phone if you have the app installed.

You can even search for lyric songs and then listen to them with LyricsPlus! Not only that, but your server members can be notified when you're listening to something, so they will know when you need them to join the party!

Mudae Bot

mudae bot for discord
The Mudae Bot belongs to the world of anime. It includes a database of more than 60,000 characters from anime movies and games. Your channel members can search for characters and collect them via a typical gacha game (you have different odds for receiving a distinct character...). But that's not all. You can even fight with your acquired characters in the "waifu arena".

The bot is fun, but it seems unfair to have players with premium membership get more rolls than those with maximum badges. With that being said, the bot is excellent, and I love the work that was put into it!

Regular updates and fixes because the team of developers works on the bot on a daily basis.
An extensive trading system to basically trade every card with every player.

Tatsu Bot

tatsu bot for discord
Tatsu Bot for Discord is another popular bot to gamify your server and entertain your channel members. It receives frequent updates from its developers, which means it's active and under constant development.

What's also important is that it has a very active player base helping to create a global economy and a simple to use pet module. Many people also like the pixel art graphics and the variety of items one can acquire.

However, Tatsu Bot also has premium features that you have to pay for. But remember that developers need to make money somehow, so don't see this as a con necessarily.

Pokecord Bot

Pokecord used to be one of the best and most-loved Discord Bots in the Pokémon universe. But sadly, its developer decided to stop running it during 2020, so Pokecord can no longer be used.

But don't worry, there are already successors rising in popularity and trying to step in the footsteps of Pokecord. One of them is Poketwo, and we are going to cover it next, so keep on reading!

Poketwo Bot

poketwo bot for discord
Like already said, Pokecord is no longer running, so here comes a valid alternative, the Poketwo Bot for Discord. With Poketwo, you can catch Pokemon, level them up, trade them against other players' Pokemon and even battle them against other players.

But in the end, that's all of the features, really. So you cannot compare this bot to multi-purpose bots like MEE6 or Carl Bot. But it is quite entertaining and has a lot of potentials, so I am curious what the future holds in store for Poketwo.
