Discord has slowly become the chat and voice program of choice for gamers and online personalities alike. So much so that if you’ve talked with your friends or online companions, you have probably used Discord at one point or another. TeamSpeak and Ventrilo were the go-to tools in the past, but now Discord is the one everyone uses.
Given the platform’s new popularity, there are many great Discord bots you can use with the site. Let’s take a look at some of them and explain what makes them so fun.
Mee6 is one of the most used Discord bots out there, and for good reason. It gives people in your server a reason to chat, as it will give them XP and levels the more and more they talk with one another. In addition, it has a range of special features that make your server much more interesting to interact with.
Mee6 gives you moderation controls, alerts for Twitch and YouTube, as well as welcome messages and auto-role assignments. All of those attributes add a benefit for users to join your server and give them a reason to stay. If you want a basic bot that adds a nice layer of functionality, this is a good place to start.

Birb is another moderation bot, and unlike some other bots out there, it is super reliable. That means you don’t have to worry about it going down and leaving your server vulnerable. Birb has an advantage over a lot of other bots in that you can change the language to match that of you and your friends.
Birb has a ton of other features as well. You can look up information on your favorite manga or anime. If that isn’t something you’re interested in, maybe you would rather use the game integration commands to show achievements. It does all the standard moderation stuff as well, including join and leave messages.
If you want to make a little money from your Discord server, DonateBot is a good way to go. This Discord bot allows you to receive donations straight into your PayPal account.

5. Dank Memer

There are other bots that do the same things this bot does, but none quite as well.
Equalizer is a great all-around bot that can handle many tasks with ease. It performs moderation tasks, allows users to have fun with games, and has a full fledged economy system. Though none of those features are new to bots, few are able to combine them into one place.
The moderation tools here are very robust. Not only does it auto moderate, but it has a strong anti-spam filter as well. This will keep your Discord server running at a high level and stop trolls from ruining your day. The games are fun and varied as well.
