* Heather Stone, protagonist/narrator of ''Literature/{{Newshound}}'', is a bit more subdued in her snark than some of the other examples on this page, but still regularly offers up the occasional witticism on the people and events in her life.

Well, fine, that's hyperbole, but you have to admit the guy is an [[AuthorAvatar awfully convenient proxy]] to have around if you're a clever author who wants to show the world how [[GenreSavvy clever]] you are. Not to mention he can also function as an AudienceSurrogate, incorporating and defusing a reader's skepticism with endless LampshadeHanging of whatever bits of the story don't make sense. You can almost feel the enormous weight of the entire story's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief on this poor guy's shoulders.

* Jericho, the narrator of ''Fanfic/{{Jericho}}'', whose narration style is founded upon snark. Without breaking the fourth wall, he is constantly making fun of the [[GenreSavvy story he's in]] and the world and characters therein, kind of like a [[CloudCuckooLander demented]] [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Douglas Adams]].

* R from ''WarmBodies''. Justified, as he has trouble actually making legible words with his mouth (he is a zombie, after all), so most of the snarky dialogue we get from him is simply his train of thought.

* [[CalLeandros Caliban Leandros]], oh so very much. His brother Niko has his moments as well, though he's much more restrained.

Added DiffLines:

* Mark Watney in [[Literature/TheMartian The Martian]] is frequently a smartass in the log he keeps while stranded on Mars. His communications with NASA also tend towards smartassery.

* One can't end this section without mentioning Will from ''TheInbetweeners'' who is both the main protagonist and the voice-over narrator. Already a DeadpanSnarker of dimensions in the series itself, he manages to take it up a notch when he narrates. In reviews, even people who don't like the series and/or movie in general will usually admit to have gotten a few laughs out of Will's narration. The appeal (especially to grown-up viewers) probably comes from how he criticizes phenomena in everyday life that seem completely normal or even cool to most teenagers, but when you grow up, you realize how stupid or awkward they were.
