* Matsurika from ''Manga/MariaHolic'' is a particularly harsh example: she's beyond snarky with her master, she's flat out ''abrasive'' with everyone.

The ServileSnarker is a combination of a DeadpanSnarker and TheJeeves (although the original Jeeves, as the above quote shows, can be pretty snarky). A butler, maid, slave, servant, whatever, who is heavily sarcastic to their master and/or their master's guests and yet still manages to keep their job. Often a master of the StealthInsult.

* The incarnation of Jarvis, [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark's]] butler found in ''UltimateMarvel'' is very sarcastic towards his master, unlike the traditional Earth 616 Jarvis. He's also drawn to resemble Michael Gough, the Alfred of the Burton/Schumacher movies.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': Bob the Skull does a lot of this whenever he's lecturing Harry on some obscure bit of lore, otherwise he tends toward being a shameless pervert. Notably Bob's personality shifts depending on his owner, so it's ''Harry's'' fault he's like this. [[spoiler: Bob as owned by someone with less scruples and no sense of humor is ''[[CompleteMonster utterly terrifying]]''.]]
