** The arms-less Rin Tezuka subverts this. She's introduced as a huge snarker in the common stages, but in ''her'' own route her sarcasm takes a backseat as [[SarcasmBlind her]] [[MuseAbuse other]] [[NoGoodWithPeople sides]] [[PlayedForDrama are treated]] ''[[PlayedForDrama far]]'' [[PlayedForDrama more seriously]].

** A good part of [[HGamePOVCharacter Hisao]]'s [[FirstPersonSmartass inner narration]] is sprinkled with sarcasm and irony, specially when he's dealing with [[HeManWomanHater Kenji]].

** The deafmute StudentcouncilPresident Shizune falls here. Hisao wonders whether she had difficulty learning the concept of sarcasm without the ability to sense tone, but it's clear she eventually mastered it.

* A ''lot'' of handicapped people are this way in real life as a response to how non-disabled people treat them ([[KickTheDog intentionally]] [[InnocentlyInsensitive or not]]), either as coping mechanism towards genuinely discriminating/dehumanizing/degrading/etc. behavior or as a reaction to [[CondescendingCompassion non-disabled people reducing them solely to their disabilities]]. This can sometimes lead to DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery, but everyone has bad days. Or, heck, maybe they're snarky people who just happen to be disabled on the side.

* Agnes from ''Literature/{{Run}}'', though she doesn't start out this way. It's part of Bo's influence on her, making her more independent.

* A ''lot'' of handicapped people are this way in real life [[DisabledMeansHelpless due to the subtle ways they're discriminated against, dehumanized, condescended to and degraded]] by the non-disabled population, often through no fault of the able, whose slights are committed out of ignorance, with no conscious awareness that they're offending/insulting the handicapped, who resort to snark as a coping technique/defense mechanism. This can sometimes lead to DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery, but everyone has bad days. Or, heck, maybe they're snarky people who just happen to be disabled on the side.

What it says on the tin: a character with some sort of disability and strong sarcastic tendencies. This can be portrayed in a variety of ways -- maybe they use snark as a coping mechanism or way to vent, maybe their position as a social outsider has given them an irreverent view of the world, maybe the author is deliberately trying to avoid the InspirationallyDisadvantaged stereotype, or perhaps smartassitude is just endemic to the character's nature. Subtrope of DeadpanSnarker, usually overlaps with EmoTeen to some extent if the character fits that age group. Compare DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery.

DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery; also compare {{Cuckoosnarker}} who is snarky in spite of [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} having his/her head in the clouds]] (may also overlap with this trope if the disability is mental).
