There are thousands of free Discord bots to choose from and testing all of them is simply impossible. That’s why we’ll give you a list of our personal favorites in this article. Keep in mind that we haven’t tested all of them and probably won’t ever be able to, so if you think a bot deserves a spot on our next list please let us know!
Lots of the bots in this list have completely different capabilities and a unique range of features. None of them are objectively the best discord bots, but we can absolutely vouch for them. Keep in mind that we only reviewed the free versions of each bot down below.

The best Discord Bots Q1 2019
Gaius has quickly become our go-to choice for security and moderation on all of our Discord Servers. The bot covers all features we could wish for in those fields and still manages to provide even more functionality than other bots. The website and documentation are great, the setup process is streamlined and easy to follow and the devs are actively updating Gaius. You can even request new features and if they are reasonable and useful they will often be added quickly. This makes Gaius our first choice when it comes to the best Discord bots in 2019.

For years now Dyno has managed to keep the top spot as one of the best Discord bots on the market. There are many good reasons for that. The bot has a relatively large and dedicated development team, lots of patrons, the best Support Server on Discord, a great Web Dashboard and all the features you could ask for in a general purpose/moderation bot. If you came to this website looking for a single Discord bot that is going to satisfy all of your needs and teach you a lot about Discord on top of that, choose Dyno. You won’t regret it.

Our Review: The best Discord bot for beginners
BastionBot is another great choice for a general purpose Discord bot. The bot is Open-source, actively developed and mainly focused on helping you automate all possible tasks. Whether you are looking for moderation, security or games, BastionBot is a bot you should definitely consider. Especially for developers, this bot can be interesting, with the ability to self-host it and contribute to development on Github.

StatBot provides a unique functionality in that it can give you detailed stats about your Discord server. On its web dashboard, it can display graphs for a lot of things, whether it be how many people joined on a certain day, how many messages were sent of how many minutes spent in voice chat. There’s basically no reason not to use this bot and it’s great to be able to track your server’s success over time.

Can’t make a list of the best Discord bots and not include a music bot. Rythm is our favorite because it simply feels clean and polished. The quality is great, the website is nice and it has all the features we ever needed. Do however keep in mind that we usually don’t use music bots on our servers so our experience is limited to testing the bots and not employing them in “real” servers.

Unbelievaboat is our favorite choice for games and an economic system within Discord. The bot allows you to set up income for roles, features lots of different games, gambling and ways for users to interact with each other. You can really sink your time into setting it up properly and we actually had a case where we returned to an abandoned server after months and saw that people were still active because of this bot alone. The documentation is thankfully very good so you can always look stuff up.

Modmail by Kyb3r
We’ve spent a ton of time searching for a public modmail bot. Until we found Kyb3r’s modmail on GitHub. The developers are extremely active, sometimes updating the bot multiple times a day. Currently, it offers all the features we could wish for in a modmail and some we didn’t even think of. You can use and host the bot for free, but the setup process takes a bit of time. Thankfully there’s a full installation guide on the GitHub!

Our Review: The best Modmail Bot for Discord!
Xenon was made for a single purpose and to our knowledge, it is the only bot even offering its features. The bot allows you to completely copy your Discord Server, including channels, roles, and permissions (and even messages with the premium version) and copy them to another Discord Server. It also has the ability to automatically create backups of your server, which you can load even if your server somehow is wiped completely. It might not offer as many features as the other bots on this list, but the uniqueness and usability of the features it has make it one of the best discord bots in our eyes.
