* Rhett Butler in ''Literature/GoneWithTheWind''. Not until the end of the book, after knowing him for ''years'', does Scarlett realize how much she's hurt him with her constant rejections, because his sole form of communication is snide comments and wisecracks.

* ''Series/DawsonsCreek'': The self-proclaimed 'Black Sheep' of his family riddled with insecurities and DaddyIssues, Pacey Witter most definitely qualifies as this. He has as a very sardonic, self-aware view of the world and himself. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Joey:

** 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.

** When the Ninth Doctor gets snarky about humanity, it's often a sign that he's very upset and trying hard not to show it. Rose even lampshades this in "The Doctor Dances".

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11772125/1/Metroid-Kamen-Rider-Generations-Full-Series Metroid: Kamen Rider Generations]]'', [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Mitsuzane]] is often written as this combining with StepfordSmiler in spades. His reason to throw a lot of snarks even if it doesn't even make sense to snark at all. Once you learn about [[DarkAndTroubledPast his past]], Mitsuzane has been struggling to get over it, to the point he becomes insecure of himself and no longer reform connections with his former friends in Zawame, considering the grave sins he had committed during his betrayal against Kouta.

** Faith. To the [[BrokenBird extreme]]. Also with shades of {{StepfordSmiler}}. Being a product of a {{DarkandTroubledPast}}, Faith hid all her unhappiness and self-loathing behind a tough-ass attitude and bad girl snark. Faith's bottling of her own demons got so bad she [[TraumaButton finally exploded]] and went on a [[JumpingOfftheSlipperySlope killing spree]], only magnifying her defense mechanism (She hated herself even more evil, but hid it behind cruelty). Eventually after [[RedemptionQuest redemption]] by Angel, she becomes more at peace with herself but still keeps up the snarky smokescreens--to a less psychotic degree, of course.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': It's heavily implied that this is the case for Mr. Cat, who is rude, cynical and sarcastic. It's been shown that his behavior might actually be because of deeply rooted psychological issues and an inferiority complex, as well as several traumatic past experiences and living with an abusive family prior to the show's events.
