* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': [[CunningLikeAFox Nick Wilde]] snarks constantly as a conman, but it slowly becomes clear that it's a defense mechanism to deal with discrimination against foxes.

* 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.

The fraternal twin of the StepfordSmiler. The Stepford Snarker has intense feelings of sadness, anger, numbness, loneliness, or other negative emotions, but, for whatever reason, wants to hide these feelings from the people around them. But whereas the Stepford Smiler hides these feelings by acting sweet and happy, the Snarker hides them by [[OhGreatASnarkIndex being snide and sarcastic]]. They often put on an outward appearance of being very jaded and bitter (though some may maintain a brighter disposition when in a better mood, snarking only when upset), and make sarcastic comments about everything and everybody, but those that are able to break their shell find that they're actually deeply hurt. If they're able to heal, they'll not necessarily stop being sarcastic -- it may just be a part of their personality -- but they'll hopefully find a way to express their feelings to their loved ones, rather than solely hiding them with their quips.

* DependingOnTheWriter, {{Deadpool}} comes across like this, using his sense of humor to cope with his past trauma at Weapon X, as well as his own failings as a person.

* ''Film/TheAvengers'' has [[WorldOfSnark quite a lot of snarkers]], most of whom are garden variety {{Deadpan Snarker}}s, but [[IronMan Tony Stark]] and [[TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] specifically fit this trope because their sarcasm is respectively a defence mechanism and a way of maintaining self-control. This is particularly evident after [[spoiler: Agent Coulson]] gets killed, and Tony snarks about how stupid he was to face Loki alone, but is clearly using it to cover up his own grief. Given that Tony's [[Film/IronMan own films]] show his life to be something of a mess, with quite a lot of moral emptiness (before he decides to become a superhero), alcoholism, and relationship issues (continuing after he becomes a superhero) he counts as this trope in all his films.

*''Series/ParksAndRecreation'': April becomes one of these after she first tells her boyfriend Andy, in an uncharacteristic (for her) moment of emotional availability, that she loves him, and he's caught so off-guard that the best response he can manage is to say "Dude! Shut up! That is awesomesauce!" Later on, talking to the camera, a visibly angry but very deadpan April flatly insists that there's no problem, then smiles brightly and says "I awesomesauce Andy!"

* Will Herondale from "The Infernal Devices", uses wit and sarcasm as a defense mechanism to deal with the fact that he's supposedly "cursed" and whoever loves him will die. Which is a pretty understandable reaction to a situation like this.

* [[Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians Percy Jackson]] is a pretty good example of this from the start, responding to loneliness, ridicule, and abuse with an unchildlike level of cynical humor. And that's before [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude he becomes a war veteran twice over]].



* ''Series/VeronicaMars'': sophomore year, she is ridiculed, outcasted and raped after the death of her best friend. Junior year, she makes quips.

* Sgt. Craig from ''Film/TheVictors'' may come off as rough around the edges, but he hides his pain and weariness behind such an exterior.

* [[RichBitch C.C.]] [[HopelessSuitor Babcock]] on ''Series/TheNanny'' is a snobby BlueBlood businesswoman constantly looking down upon almost everyone, though as the series goes on, she's shown to be a very depressed and lonely woman who struggles to come to terms with the fact that Maxwell Sheffield isn't romantically interested in her.
