He may be a sassy little beast with a [[heart of gold]] who gripes about the dangers of accompanying the hero, but ultimately follows him or her out of loyalty. Or he may be a [[ComedicSociopathy sociopath]] who mocks the idealistic rest of the cast and the villains alike, always getting the last word. His popularity ranges from TheScrappy to fan favourite in the same fandom. Every second webcomic has one, because nothing screams nerd-humor quite like having a token little mascot that swears like a sailor and/or brings hookers to your place when you're absent for the night. For some reason it's often a "he" even when it's hard to understand what about his physique qualifies him as male. Cuteness is an option, not a certainty.

Added that they are not always sociopaths.

* Myhrad the drageling (young dragon) from [[http://www.fantasycomic.com/ Chasing The Sunset]] is such an articulate pessimist he could give Marvin a run for his money. And he's absolute adorable to boot.

* Although she fits the qualification of being the resident NonHumanSidekick-in-a-Webcomic, Molly the Monster in ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' is innocent and naive rather than snarky -- but she is nonetheless a source of much comic relief. And she certainly takes the cuteness option.

** Creator Randy Milholland's own comic ego has a mascot in [[RefugeInAudacity Rippy the Razor]], who is himself occasionally shadowed by [[GrotesqueCute Fluffmodeus]] and the Misery Monkey * ''Webcomic/WalkyVerse'': Shortpacked's Ultra-Car has moved in this direction since his origins. He's just not very good at snarking.

* [[OverlyLongName Sir Percival Throckmorton Scruffs Esq, Eigth Viscount of Lower Hemmingwedge-on-the-Fritz]], the rat sidekick from ''{{Guttersnipe}}'' is more pompous than snarky but still fits the trope. * Fuzzy from ''SamAndFuzzy'' started out as this, until eventually evolving into a more dramatic figure with equal billing with Sam as CerebusSyndrome took hold.
