A common role for a StraightMan. May wear JadeColoredGlasses. If there are too many of these, you might be in a WorldOfSnark. Overdoing it on one character may result in a {{Jerkass}}. Expect plenty of SnarkToSnarkCombat if and when two of these meet. May result in OffingTheMouth. Try not to confuse the dialogue with BuffySpeak.

"Snark" = portmanteau of "snide" and "remark".



The Deadpan Snarker exists to deflate pomposity, [[LampshadeHanging point out the unlikelihood of]] [[ZanyScheme certain]] [[GambitRoulette plans]], and deliver funny lines. Typically the [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism most cynical]] [[SourSupporter supporting character]]. In most cases, it is implied that the snarker would make a good leader, strategist, or consultant given their ability to [[GenreSavvy instantly see the flaws in a constructed plan]]. More often than not, their innate snarkiness is the only thing preventing the other characters from comprehending this for themselves. In other cases, the Deadpan Snarker resorts to sarcasm because they're the OnlySaneMan. Tends to be shot a DeathGlare when they go too far (and probably isn't without one of their own, either). Note that due to the definition evolving, the "Deadpan" part of the title has gradually become TheArtifact and a deadpan delivery is no longer a necessary part of the trope.
