Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''. Even characters who aren't typically snarky in other Transformers books, like [[ByTheBookCop Prowl]] or Optimus Prime, will suddenly take a level of DeadpanSnarker when they make an appearance.

* Happens when Keith Giffen and J. M. [=DeMatteis=] write superhero comic books, usually drawn by Kevin Maguire. They played this trope in their acclaimed run in [[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational JLI]] for DCComics, and in their run in [[ComicBook/TheDefenders the Defenders title]] for MarvelComics, basically turning them into the AlternateCompanyEquivalent of the former.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Doctor himself snarks on a semi regular basis, and when he isn't doing it, he gets snarked at. Three, Nine, and Ten are among the snarkier Doctors, while Tegan, Turlough, Captain Jack, and Donna are among the snarkier companions. Is especially prevalent in the Eleventh Doctor's era. He and the Pond family basically communicate only in snark. Clara Oswald and the Doctor snarking it off is also a sight to behold. [[http://sassydoctorwho.tumblr.com/ This tumblr]] is a collection of gifs of snappy putdowns from the whole series, Classic and revival. There are an awful lot. And then there's Twelve. Who snarks with everyone.
** And in ''The Enemy of the World'', most of the topside characters are snarky.

Added DiffLines:

** "The Robots of Death" contains a lot of ParanoiaFuel between a lot of clever people who all hate each other. They communicate mostly in sarcasm, and occasionally in death threats.
** The Fourth Doctor (AwesomeEgo), Romana (WomenAreWiser) and K-9 (RoboSnark) are one of the most sarcastic TARDIS teams of the Classic series, and their era's heavy focus on humour made it constant.
** ''The Moffat era'' really is where this begins to be obvious. The Eleventh Doctor and the Ponds communicate exclusively like this, as does the Twelfth Doctor and Clara.

* ''Series/{{Mash}}''. Even the blatant idiots get off a few good wisecracks, just not as many as Hawkeye and company. Hawkeye is a great example of StepfordSnarker who is really messed up but uses humour and sarcasm as his defense mechanism.

* The cast of ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'' changes every season, but it tends to be divided almost evenly between the snarkers (Blackadder, Melchett, and so on) and the people who are too dim to notice when they're being snarked at (such as Baldrick, George, Baldrick, Queen Elizabeth, and Baldrick). Did we mention Baldrick?

* As one of Creator/{{Bioware}}'s signature staples, suffice to say their games frequently fall into this category.

** Mix ''BioWare'' and ''Franchise/StarWars'', and you get ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' where it's possible to not only snark, but just barely [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar fly under a PG-13 rating]] in doing so. The first game's crew snarks about as much as a ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}'' marathon, with even Bastila and Juhani getting in the occasional zinger. Jolee and HK-47 are hard-locked in SarcasmMode. The second game resembles ''Series/BlakesSeven'' with Atton aspiring to Avon's level. Kreia ought to register her words as a deadly weapon. Disciple and Handmaiden, by contrast, are too often oblivious to sarcasm.

** In one episode, it becomes a plot point that nobody dares to snark at Carla even when everyone in the hospital is stated as insulting everyone else. When Carla hears the others think she can't take a joke like the rest, she relents, after which the others proceed to make fun of her [[UpToEleven for two whole hours]] off-screen.
-->'''Elliot:''' I honestly don't mind that you're making fun of me, but what does bother me is that no one is ever allowed to make fun of you.
-->'''Carla:''' People can make fun of me.
-->'''Elliot:''' Come on! What about that delivery guy yesterday? I mean, you practically tore him a new binglebore.
-->'''Carla:''' But he's not my friend. My friends can make fun of me whenever they want.
-->'''Elliot:''' Really? Well, then, in that case you're a know-it-all smartypants and if you're not telling someone what to do, you're probably not talking.
-->'''Carla:''' Okay, I guess I can be a little bossy.
-->'''Laverne:''' A little? Girl, please! If you met Jesus himself, you'd be trying to tell him where to park his donkey.
-->'''J.D.:''' Oh, are we allowed to do this now? What about that whole, like, hands on the hips, "Carla from the block" thing she does when she's mad -- when she's like "Oh, Bambi, you do NOT want to mess me with right now."
-->'''Doug:''' You do sound like that.
-->'''Carla:''' Careful Doug, we are not that close yet.
-->'''J.D.: (posing like Carla)''' Careful, Doug!
-->'''Elliot:''' That's what's up. Mm-mm. Mmm.
-->'''J.D.:''' Doug, you better be careful, 'cause I'm Carla!

* ''TheMiddleman'' is an interesting example, as the title character himself is too earnest to be particularly snarky. Everyone else, on the other hand...

* The MarvelCinematicUniverse is wall-to-wall snark, so it's amazing that putting all the heroes together under the directorship of Creator/JossWhedon in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' doesn't lead to people having snark overdoses in the cinema. In the Director's Commentary for Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}, Joss notes that the reason Agent Coulson was made a [[{{Squee}} Squeeing]] ComicBook/CaptainAmerica FanBoy was to keep the film from being "a desert of wit".
