One of the essential parts of running a server is deciding which Discord bot to use. With so many out there it can be difficult to determine which ones are trustworthy and right for your server. Whether its auto-moderation, playing music, or even playing games in the server, there is a great Discord bot for just about everything! Here is our top 10 list of Discord bots for your server.

1. Tatsumaki
