* Soren in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path Of Radiance]]''. When his facade even slightly pulls back, Ike notices. [[DefrostingIceQueen Thanks to Ike's willingness to listen, he's mostly feeling better in the sequel]], although there are still some loose ends to tie up (namely, that Ike couldn't remember their first encounter).
* Rhajat in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', especially in the localization where she's as much a creepy snarker as the character she's an {{Expy}} of. She's sour and grumpy and obsessed with creepy things, but her supports with her parents and fellow child characters reveal her to be quite awkward and vulnerable. She even ''cries'' in her A support with [[spoiler:her father]] Hayato.

* There's a whole bit on Creator/PattonOswalt's ''My Weakness is Strong'' album about how much he'd grown to depend on cynicism and sarcasm as a defense mechanism, and how he had to suddenly abandon that when, after he voiced the main character of ''Ratatouille'', he found himself on all sorts of children's programming being interviewed by actual children. Suddenly he had to be sincere, and ''he hated it.''

* Kirito in ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged''. In the first two episodes he was a pure HeroicComedicSociopath. The death of the girl he was opening up to in episode 3 made him decide to double down on that attitude, but at the same time it messed him up to the point that he finds himself unable to be as uncaring as he pretends to be. Of special note is episode 8, when he tries making a BondOneLiner when Corvatz is killed by Gleam Eyes to cover up how shaken up he is.

* Elphaba from ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' fits this. She is incredibly lonely, having being brought up by an emotionally abusive father and forced to care for her wheelchair-bound sister, but when she is bullied for the colour of her skin she doesn't act upset and just snarks at them. At the Ozdust Ballroom, Glinda sees through her act and tells Fiyero that Elphaba is bothered by the other students' cruelty.

* Eddy of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. He seems confident and manly while snarking all the while (especially around Ed), but it's shown that it's was all a mask to hide the inferiority complex he got from his brother's abuse. A mask he made in naive belief that he would be popular if he acted like he did.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/FullMetalAlchemist'': Edward Elric is incredibly sarcastic, especially in the english dub of the first anime while occasionally showing a cocky grin. Though, when you learn of his past, all the burdens he carries in the present, and his tendency to use HeroicSelfDeprecation on himself despite the good he's done one can safely assume he uses it as a defense mechanism.
