** There's also Ponder Stibbons, a snarky HypercompetentSidekick to the rest of the Unseen University faculty, who by ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' can say "I just pull my weight, like everyone else" in a way that "indicates he thought everyone else had [[BigEater too much weight]] and [[BrilliantButLazy not enough pull]]."

** There's also Ponder Stibbons, a snarky HypercompetentSidekick to the rest of the Unseen University faculty, who faculty. Ironically, though still a NonActionGuy by virtue of ''being'' a wizard, he's a lot more intellectually and organizationally active than the rest. In fact, by ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' can say he says "I just pull my weight, like everyone else" the rest of the faculty" in a "a way that "indicates he thought everyone else indicates the rest of the faculty had [[BigEater too much weight]] and [[BrilliantButLazy not enough pull]].""
** And, of course, Vetinari (who overlaps with GentlemanSnarker). Except in ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', where the "non-action" part is thrown aside, not the "snarker" one. In most of the other books he's a PenPushingPresident whose opportunities and inclination for action are somewhat limited, but whose opportunities for snarking are anything but.

* The Man In the Chair from ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'' is literally separated from the action of the play (because it's all happening inside his head based off a record he's listening, so he ''can't'' alter the play in any way), but that doesn't stop him from snarking the whole way through anyway.

* Super Kami Guru from WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged spends most of Season 2 sitting on his throne, occasionally unlocking a character's full potential, but mostly making snide remarks to anyone within earshot. Even when Freeza showed up at his lookout, asking for technical support...
--> '''Guru:''' Nail, what does he want?
--> '''Nail:''' He's asking how to use the Dragon Balls!
--> '''Guru:''' Did you tell him to [[ADateWithRosiePalms work the shaft?]]
--> '''Nail:''' Yes, Lord Guru!
--> '''Guru:''' Good work, Nail.
--> '''Freeza:''' I have the distinct impression you're going to be difficult.
--> '''Nail:''' Well sir, if you're having a problem with our customer support, you can call 1-800-EAT-A-D*CK.

* Dr Harrison Wells, the NonActionGuy MissionControl in ''Series/TheFlash2014''. He has a very dry, snarky sense of humour, which is partially due to him being the smartest guy in any room and partially due to the cynicism he gained after his own recklessness [[DisableSnarker landed him in a wheelchair for life.]] [[spoiler: Subverted, in that he is very much an action guy in his role as the Reverse Flash and, if anything, his snarking gets more pronounced after his true identity is revealed and he ditches the ObfuscatingDisability.]]

** Cisco Ramon is also very snarky, although his humour is a bit sillier than Dr Wells' dry wit, and his main role is as the team's GadgeteerGenius rather than anything combat oriented. He's shown to be capable of holding his own in a fight against Hartley Rathaway, but Hartley has no powers and is thus in a very different league to the bad guys Team Flash usually face.
