* Mozart and Lorenzo Da Ponte seemed to like this archetype, Leporello in ''{{Don Giovanni}}'' and Despina in ''{{Cosi Fan Tutte}}'' are the standard supporting-role variety, while Figaro and Susanna in ''{{Le Nozze di Figaro}}'' are rare examples of Servile Snarker protagonists.

* Whis from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'. He is the assistant to Beerus, the resident God of Destruction. He is very sarcastic to Beerus, [[PersonOfMassDestruction a person who blows planets on lesser than a whim]], and gets away with it! [[spoiler: It is more because, Whis is Beerus's teacher, as in the one stronger than him. It also works that he's not directly under Beerus, but he's under Omni-King, Supreme Ruler of the Multiverse.]]

* Hayasaka from ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai''. She has faithfully served Kaguya since they were both children and loves her like a little sister, but she isn't above tearing into her over [[LoveMakesYouDumb how she acts around Shirogane]].

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'': Lydia the Housecarl is sworn to carry your burdens...though technically at first, that was the only snark she would deliver to you in the original game (granted, being said from opening her inventory that players are bound to do a bunch with followers made it certain players would her that a lot). The ''Dragonborn'' DLC [[AscendedMeme upped the ante for snark degree among her lines]].

* In ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'', [[TheBigGuy Loader Bot]] is quite prone to this, especially if you made him self-destruct in Episode 1. While he's always there to save your hide from the bad guys, he'll usually snark about your incompetence if he doesn't shun you. Hell, even when you're on ''good'' terms with him, he starts delving into this later on!
--> '''Loader Bot''': [[spoiler:<having just pried a door open out of [[SpaceStation Helios']] thruster room>]] We really should stop meeting like this.
--> '''Rhys''': I am SO happy to see you, buddy!
--> '''Loader Bot''': You are very needy.

* Sir {{Humphrey}} Appleby of ''Series/YesMinister'' is the Permanent Undersecretary of the Department of Administrative Affairs, and later Cabinet Secretary, and never misses an opportunity to subtly mock his political masters while insisting he is only there to serve them. As such a senior civil servant, he can get away with this level of snark even when it is caught.

* ''LightNovel/YoujoSenki'': The only person in the world Tanya will put up with talking back to her even slightly is her adjutant, Victoria Serebryakov. It's a downplayed example, as Victoria is still scared stiff of Tanya and will often shut up quickly at the first sign of anger, but she has on several occasions questioned Tanya's orders and not been punished for it, which is unique in the series. As a result, she's probably the closest thing to a friend Tanya has.
