* The titular hero of ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' has always been this, even before Kilgrave. It's the reason she was unable to hold down any one of the series of menial office jobs she cycled through before becoming a private investigator. This trait is even more apparent in ''Series/TheDefenders2017''.

* Haruko Hasegawa of ''Manga/{{Moyashimon}}'' is a dedicated microbiology postgrad with an acid tongue. She delivers a lecture on the validity of "sterilising" products when she sees Oikawa's [[NeatFreak compulsive disinfecting]]. Sawaki's supernatural ability to see and interact with (to him) [[{{Kawaisa}} cute]] microbes triggers a minor meltdown.

This is a subtrope of DeadpanSnarker. It's also related to KnightInSourArmor (often considered the ActionHero counterpart to this trope) and CoolLoser. Contrast LonersAreFreaks. Often the opposite of the StepfordSmiler; if their sarcasm is revealed to be a similar mask, they're a StepfordSnarker.

* {{Garfield}} is perhaps the most well-known example. In fact, "fat", lazy", and "cynical" are the three adjectives that are usually tossed about when people discuss him.
* {{Dilbert}} portrays a WorldOfSnark where Dogbert is the greatest snarker of them all.

-->'''Douglas''': ''[Reading CS Lewis's inscription in his book]'' "The magic never ends."
-->'''Joy''': Well, if it does, sue him.
* Kathryn Merteuil of ''Film/CruelIntentions'' is a ''very'' rare combination of this trope and AlphaBitch. It definitely shatters the stereotype that all mean girls are stupid, and possibly suggests that most Alpha Bitches are Snark Knights [[WhatYouAreInTheDark when no one is watching]].
* [[Franchise/DieHard John McClane]] is a very good snarker, and many of his quips are at his own expense. For example, in ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'', one character says he's two steps away from being an [[TheAlcoholic alcoholic]], and John corrects him by holding up a finger and mouthing, "One step."

* Haley Starshine of ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' surely isn't one... but, on the other hand, her brain is hosting "[[DarknessVonGothickname Mistress Shadowgale]]", a.k.a the [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0311.html imaginary personification of her self-loathing]], which certainly has several levels of Snark Knight.

* Megara from Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Disney/{{Hercules}}''. She later becomes a DefrostingIceQueen. She's also voiced by the same actress who does Rin (see above) in the English dub of ''Spirited Away''. Coincidence? We think not.
** Hades is an interesting example, as his aromor of snark goes hand in hand with his HairTriggerTemper.
