* ''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".

** ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', as if Whedon didn't put enough snark in the MarvelCinematicUniverse.

* ''Film/BatmanReturns''. In a film as nihilistic as this one, this should come as no surprise. While the Penguin, Selena Kyle, and Alfred lead the pack in pure snarkiness, nearly every character from the Mayor on down have a snark moment (except Commissioner Gordon, who has maybe five short lines of dialogue in this outing).

It's telling that the (ironically named) Ice Princess, the only character integral to the plot who does ''not'' behave this way, is also [[spoiler: the only non-villainous character who gets killed]]. Contrast this with the 1989 predecessor film, where, while the Joker's dialogue is snark-a-minute, Vicki Vale [[WideEyedIdealist radiates optimistic sincerity to a downright adorable degree]] (except toward the end), and Bruce Wayne himself is more emotional and personable than the stone-faced smartass he becomes in ''Returns''.

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' especially in the English dub, with the somewhat simplistic dialogue replaced with witty and sarcastic comments/insults. Especially Hiei and Yusuke, but also Kurama, Genkai, Shizuru, Kaito, Koenma, Jorge Saotome, Koto (when the idiocy around her gets too much, especially towards Chu and Jorge), Shishiwakamaru (in the final season, at least), Sniper, Atsuko, Toya (when he's not being stoic), hell even Kuwabara shows this very rarely. The snark doesn't stop with the heroes and their supporters. Some of the major villains such as Sensui and Sakyo had their moments.

* ''PartRightHalfWrongAThirdCrazy'', in its entirety. Even a ''lamp'' manages to be a Deadpan Snarker, due to everyone being some form of {{Cloudcuckoolander}} as well as sarcastic.

* ''Literature/{{Percy Jackson|and the Olympians}}''. The powers that demigods and gods are born with must include snarkiness, because well, they are. Even the chapter titles are snarky!

* ''Literature/HarryPotter''. There's Snape, [=McGonagall=] and Phineas Nigellus for starters. Much of the humour, especially in the later books, comes from the characters snarking at each other. In the [[PowerTrio core trio]] of Ron, Hermione and Harry, snark is passed around like a hot potato. [[TricksterTwins Fred and George]], as the series's two most blatant sources of PluckyComicRelief, deserve special mention.

* In ''Film/Deadpool2016'', the only character who isn't snarky is [[IdealHero Colossus]]. Everyone else does nothing but crack jokes especially the title character to the point that not snarking is a sign that [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness something is wrong.]]
