* Rick from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is aggressively this.
--> '''Bird Person:''' Morty. Do you know what "Wubalubadubdub means?
--> '''Morty:''' That's just Rick's stupid, nonsense catchprase.
--> '''Bird Person:''' It is not nonsense at all. In my people's tongue, it means, "I am in great pain. Please help me."
--> '''Morty:''' Well, I got news for ya. He's saying it ironically.
--> '''Bird Person:''' No, Morty. Your grandfather is indeed in very deep pain. That is why he must numb himself.
--> '''Morty:''' Cmon', Bird Person. Rick's not that complicated. He's just a huge asshole.

Added DiffLines:

* Regent in ''Literature/{{Worm}}''. He's generally snarky, sarcastic, and irreverent to everyone around him, and spends most of his time taking the piss out of his teammates. It's a mask. He's severely emotionally damaged due to a childhood full of MindRape, and is almost totally unable to discern or experience any strong emotions. It's noted at one point that Regent doesn't get angry- he responds to aggression by making every interaction just that much more snarky and toxic. It's implied that being a snarker was essentially the only form of resistance he could display in a home where any disobedience was met with agonizing punishment.
** There's a statue made in homage to him late in the story. It depicts two masks- the Comedy Mask of Theater, and an expressionless mask behind it.

* J.D. from ''{{Theatre/Heathers}}'', when we first meet him, comes off as a clever, charming, sarcastic outsider with a rather dark sense of humor. All of this is genuinely true. However, he's also coping with an abusive drunk for a father, is still in pain from his mother's suicide many years earlier, and has no friends since he moves around so much. Oh, and he's also [[AxCrazy batshit]] [[SerialKiller insane]].

** His brother Jamie is another good example, possibly even moreso since his surface-level jadedness means most readers don't even realize how damaged he is inside until he becomes a POW character in book three.

to:

* Michael in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' is a full blown stepford snarker. He resorts to sarcasm towards everyone when they piss him off or if he is not in a good mood. The reason behind his snarky attitude is due to his complete disillusion with his life from having a wife that cheats on him, a SpoiledBrat of a daughter, and a lazy, dimwitted, pot smoking BasementDweller of a son. At one point, Trevor gives Michael grief for the constant snarking, causing Michael to snap and scream about how much crap he has gone through and that sarcasm is the only thing he can rely on.

* 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.''
