Rather like [[Kermit the Frog]], Butane is the calm, normal character. Along with [[Gertha]], he's also the only dragon in the pilot episode to actually breathe fire or smoke. Butane acts as a peacemaker amongst his fellow puppets, and his puppeteer [[Gary (Puppetman)|Gary]] uses him in a similar way to address his son [[Zack]], providing a gentle, adult voice to draw his attention before allowing him to relate on his own level with fellow child [[Candle]].
