* Magilou from ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria''. She spends a lot of her time making sarcastic remarks and being TheGadfly to the rest of the party. There are multiple moments, however, where this facade slips and she becomes dead serious. Notably, [[spoiler:when the party encounters a LotusEaterMachine illusion]], she doesn't make a single wisecrack or goofy comment for the entire ordeal.

* UsefulNotes/JoeBiden's noted for being snarky/wisecracking, despite enduring so much tragedy in his life. In December 1972, only a month after he was first elected Senator of Delaware, his wife Nielle and their infant daughter Naomi were killed in an auto accident, with their sons Beau and Hunter hospitalized too. And then, in May 2015, Beau died battling cancer, which many believe was why Joe decided not to seek the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

* OddThomas, in the series of novels of the same name by Creator/DeanKoontz, a FirstPersonSmartass who notes early on that he will be keeping the tone of the books light, otherwise what he has to say would be too painful to tell, and in-story (in other words, in the actual situations) he covers up his sadness, fears, etc. with a healthy dose of snarking or silliness.

* Silent film star Roscoe Arbuckle struggled with obesity his whole life and [[EmbarrassingNickname hated being called "Fatty"]]. He later turned to alcohol and got addicted to morphine which made his health even worse. All that combined with the Virginia Rappe scandal and it's a miracle he was able to stay positive during shootings.

* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' has Jessie as this. When she's not fun and boisterous, her mind recedes back to the cold dark place she spent much of her life in after being abandoned by Emily and being left in storage up until Al brought Woody. As a result, she has a lot of anxiety and sadness deep down. Her writers even called her a character with "high highs" and "low lows".
