The Goat Butlers
|All of the Goats|
|First Appearance||Legend of the Golden Witch|
"...All of the crimes can be explained by mystery...All fantasy is irrelevant..."—All of the Goats, Twilight of the Golden Witch
The Goats (山羊の従者 Yagi no Jūsha?) are low-level furniture that serve Beatrice. There are many of them, but they are silent, with no personality. They obey their Master's orders faithfully. Their sensitivity is closer to an animal's than a human's, and they sometimes misunderstand their orders surprisingly foolishly. By nature, they have a huge build like a minotaur, and incredible superhuman strength. They are low-level furniture, but can be very convenient since an inexhaustible supply of them can be summoned.
The Goats appear as large, muscled men with goat heads. All of the Goats wear butler outfits consisting of white shirts, grey vests, red ties, white gloves, and black jackets.

After ANGE challenges BATTLER, the Ushiromiya Main Building is transported to a world filled with Goats, each of whom represent the various theories formed about the Rokkenjima massacre. As envoys of mystery theorists, they are collectively capable of overcoming supernatural furniture by denying the existence of fantasy.
