* It's fair to say over half of the party banter in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is comprised of this, a natural result of being a {{BioWare}} game. Nonetheless, some companions get along... not as well as the others, which tends to result in some much more snarky conversations, such as Alistair and Morrigan in [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins the first game]], Aveline and Isabela in [[VideoGame/DragonAge2 the second]], and Sera and Vivienne in [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition the third]].

* Almost every character in TheGodsAreBastards engages in this. It sometimes seems that Snark must be one of the classes taught at the University. SnarkToSnarkCombat takes place between friends, allies, unacquainted neutrals, mortal enemies, people who are simultaneously trying to out-gambit each other and between a boy and his talking sword.

* In the first chapters of ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', Shinji and Asuka engage in this due to their clashing personalities.
-->'''Shinji:''' Hey, why the sour face? Forget to drink your prune juice this morning?\\
'''Asuka:''' No, just wondering how this country ever became important when itís filled with morons like you.\\
'''Shinji:''' Oh, you wound me. And I think you got a little collateral damage on you there.\\
'''Asuka:''' Iím a quarter Japanese, and I was raised in Germany. I think I took minimal splash.\\
'''Shinji:''' Ah, so the Übermensch German sides overwhelm the barbarian Japanese side?\\
'''Asuka:''' Can you cut it out with the Nazi jokes?\\
'''Shinji:''' But theyíre so easy! Come on, throw an Imperial Japan joke. Hell, I havenít even tried to throw out any weird German fetish jokes cause I know youíll have way too much tentacle demon material to work with.\\
'''Asuka:''' Oh? You know about German porn do you? Pervert.\\
'''Shinji:''' I walked into that one.\\
'''Asuka:''' You set yourself up for that one.\\
'''Shinji:''' I see no contradiction between our statements.

--->Dislike of the red-tied youth, born of his predatory opinions and evident intimacy with the pretty godchild, led Fischer to say, in his most sarcastic, magisterial manner: 'No doubt you have found something much lower than sitting on a top hat. What is it, pray?'
