* In the ''Series/GameOfThrones'' box sets, there is in-character discussion and lectures about various bits of Weserosi history, places, and events. Most characters do so simply in an informational manner, (although there are occasional hints of UnreliableNarrator, {{Half Truth}}s, exaggerating the glories of minor victories or sly hints at things that history is too polite to talk about) but the sections done by Stannis Baratheon are ''peppered'' with smart ass comments.

* Phoenix Wright of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series fits the description as well. In fact, any playable character in any of the ''Ace Attorney'' games is this trope, because it's probably the best way of handling their OnlySaneMan status.



* Kyle Hyde from ''VisualNovel/HotelDuskRoom215'' is a quite a smartass - and it even seeps into his dialogue with other characters, but he's also arguably the OnlySaneMan in the titular Hotel.



* ''Shirou'' of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. He's more famous for [[CaptainObvious not dying when he is killed]] in the anime adaptation, but in the game, his narration is remarkably sarcastic. This is made more obvious when you realize that despite the narrative shift from [[DeadpanSnarker Rin]] in the prologue to Shirou in the actual game, the actual observations don't ''change at all''. The only major change is the motivations of the narrator. Rin actually likes him because she senses this side of him, which is why she spends so much time making fun of him. [[spoiler:Archer is what Shirou would be like if he stopped being polite.]]



* Hisao Nakai of ''KatawaShoujo'' is quite snarky in his narration.

-->'''Material Defender''': You mean contradictory objectives, don't you? Destroy all infected mines. Keep the invading force from spreading further. But be sure to rescue any survivors.

* Tomoya from ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'', as you'd expect when the narrator is TheGadfly.
* Riki of ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'', another Creator/KeyVisualArts game, is also kind of snarky, though much less so than Tomoya, and he tends to keep his inner misgivings to himself unless he's talking to someone he knows can take it such as [[ButtMonkey Masato]] or [[TheTease Kurugaya]].
