Hunting for the best Discord bot?
Discord is one of the favorite social networks for like-minded people to meet, greet, and share what they love most.
Here, individuals from all over the world come together to become a part of a large group and help foster communities.
But if you’re managing those communities, I bet you must be feeling overwhelmed.
Even if you’ve yet to start a server, you should know, as a Discord owner, you may need to constantly share content and moderate your group to manage a server.
And if you’re an entrepreneur, the workload typically doubles.
A suitable Discord bot can ease your workload and tackle most of the menial jobs.
In this article, I have listed down the 20 bots that offer both excellent features and the best value for money.
1. Dyno—Powerful Moderations
Dyno is by far the most preferred Discord bot for multiple-purpose functions. Most people love it for its ease of use and diverse range of moderation features.
It has an intuitive web dashboard that is completely customizable and allows you to alter any settings.
Here, you can auto-assign roles to new members as well as permit self-assigning through reaction roles. You can also preset welcome messages and create custom commands using trigger words to engage your audience.
Bot moderation actions include banning members, detecting spam, and muting someone. Additionally, Dyno logs your data, offers a Twitch option, and even has a music player.
The bot is an excellent choice for those who don’t have much need of advanced features but still require all core functions.
- Customizable dashboard
- Basic moderation actions
- Custom commands
- Auto-roles and messages
- Music player
Dyno, comparatively, has a longer downtime. While it doesn’t affect performance, some might consider it annoying.
Dyno Premium package costs just under $5 a month. It unlocks the limit on several commands and offers additional functions including, slow-mode and Reddit feeds.
2. Carl Bot—Advanced Features
Carl bot is similar to Dyno in many ways, but offers more advanced features and is better at some tasks.
For instance, CB’s custom tags are incredibly useful. If you have little programming knowledge, you can create simple messages to full-fledged announcements.
CB also has little downtime, comparatively. Which makes it a better option for many.
Coming to its features, the software has some powerful moderation functions such as auto-deleting messages that don’t meet your rules, penalizing rule breakers, and banning abusive language.
You can also bend rules for specific channels.
As for reaction roles, CB offers over 250 actions, which pretty much covers everything.
Here are its key benefits.
- Advance moderation and automation
- Countless reaction roles
- Mod log
- Custom tags
- Suggestion’s command
CB is slightly complex. So, you may have to explore it a bit to get familiar with the app.
CB extends three memberships between $5 to $25 a month. The premium plans will give you higher limits and additional features like audit logs and levels.
3. Meet6—General Purpose
Meet6 takes a lot of heat for its relatively premium prices, but those who actively use it find the tool incredibly convenient.
The software is relatively easy to use and provides you with everything in one place.
You get auto-mods to control your content, roles for active members, and most of all, you receive a reward function. Meet6 is widely popular for its leveling system and offers customizable rank cards to encourage competition. It’s a useful feature for brands, particularly in the gaming industry.
Additionally, Meet6 allows music quizzes, social alerts, and personalized messages.
Overall, if you prefer a bot for general purposes and levels, I recommend Meet6.
- Clean interface
- Flexible XP (levels) rate
- Auto-roles and auto-messages
- Basic moderations
- Customized messages
Most of the Meet6 features fall within the premium plan, including some of the core functions. Because of that, many can’t afford the bot.
Meet6 prices are a little steep, starting from $12 a month. The platform’s selling plan is its lifetime subscription that costs around $90.
4. Arcane—For levels
Arcane is a surprising mix of Dyno and Meet6 Arcane, and unlike the former two, most of its features are free – including the level system.
The tool offers all roles and leaderboard functions. You can freely give the level command and allow members to increase their ranks using both text and voice messages.
Its moderation functions are also robust. You can block messages, kick out members, and filter spam. More, you can give reaction roles and create custom commands.
The tool is user-friendly, reliable, and budget-friendly.
- Free levels and reaction roles
- Customizable XP
- Intuitive interface
- Decent moderation
- Advanced logging
- YouTube alert
Like Dyno, Arcane offline time is long. More, its features are comparatively limited. For instance, Meet6 allows multiple social networks notifications, while Arcane allows merely YouTube alerts.
It also offers fewer non-moderation functions. Therefore, most typically use Arcane for levels only.
Arcane monthly premium plan ranges between $5 to $20. Explore its pricing page to learn more.
5. Skyra—For Entertainment
Skyra is an audience engagement bot you can use for moderation and socializing.

I wouldn’t exactly call it a drawback, but Skyra’s features are not original. While the software is continuously evolving, you can pretty much get the same functions from other bots.
Skyra is free to use, but you can support the developer through Patreon.
6. Octave—for Music Lovers

If you prefer a straightforward music bot, go for Octave.
- Easy to use
