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

* [[GodEmperor The Emperor]] from ''WebVideo/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'' is essentially an immobile, talking skeleton. A ''very snarky'' immobile, talking skeleton. His first words are literally "About fucking time".

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).

** Tyrion Lannister, the dwarf (no, not [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame that kind]]).
** Later we have to add [[spoiler: his brother]] to the list. Inverted in that he was a smartass a long time before he became disabled, but the snark gets a lot more bitter afterwards.
