[[caption-width-right:350:"I'd sorta like to know what [[ManicPixieDreamGirl you]] consider 'normal,' but I'm almost afraid to ask."]]

%%* Kiki from ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime''. A good portion of the rest of the cast get in on this from time to time, especially [[ServileSnarker Sakaki]].
%%* Alice from ''{{Manga/ARIA}}'' tends to fulfill this role, especially in the first season.
* Norway from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. Whenever speaking with Denmark, he'll fit in as many insults as possible, but with his emotionless attitude and Denmark's obliviousness, they don't really get through.
%%** Romano has some shades of this as well.
%%** Austria can come across as this when he's irritated.
** Also England, sometimes overlapping with TheSnarkKnight. Considering England produced UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill, ItMakesSenseInContext.
%%** And, though they aren't an actual character, the Narrator has a habit of this as well.
* Yomi from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh''. It comes from being TheStraightMan to Tomo's [[JerkAss jerkassness]].
%%* Serpico of the ''{{Berserk}}'' manga.
%%** TheHero [[ByronicHero Guts]] is quite the DeadpanSnarker, too.
%%** Puck can also be this at times as well.
* Sebastian from ''Manga/BlackButler'' has his moments, then when Claude appears in season 2 the pair of them go off the charts
* A lot of characters from Manga/BlackLagoon are deadpan snarkers. Even the foul-mouthed Revy gets no shortage of snarky quips.
* R. Dorothy Wayneright from ''Anime/TheBigO'' with massive emphasis on deadpan due to being a (supposedly) [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless]] RobotGirl.
%%* Sven from ''Manga/BlackCat'' is the DeadpanSnarker in Train's group.
%%* About half the cast of Manga/{{Bleach}} trade off doing this. ''Especially'' [[TheSnarkKnight Ichigo.]]
%%* Keaton Yamada, the narrator of ''[[Manga/ChibiMarukoChan Chibi Maruko Chan]]''.
%%* Helen from ''{{Claymore}}''.
* C.C. from ''CodeGeass''. Her caustic remarks are about the only thing which can rein in Lelouch's overinflated ego.
** Lelouch himself dishes out the snark as well towards C. C.'s more insouciant tendencies, among other things.
* Spike Spiegel from ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' is an unusual example in that he is a DeadpanSnarker given the role of the {{main character}} of an action show and is a defining {{Badass}} in {{anime}}. He retains his hero status despite his snark because Faye fits the role of [[TheLancer Lancer]] in most episodes.
* [[AntiHero L]] from ''Manga/DeathNote'' certainly had his moments.
-->'''Misa:''' We catch Kira! I can't imagine a world without Light!\\
'''L:''' Yes, that would be darků
%%* Conan Edogawa and Ai Haibara from ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. Does [[FountainOfYouth APTX-4869]] always make {{Teen Genius}}es to act like this?
%%** On occasion even Kogoro Mouri can become this
* Tsuyuri from ''Manga/DoujinWork'' keeps a straight face while saying the most outrageous things, mostly to pit other characters against each other and see what comes forth out of all the confusion she causes.
* [[AntiHero Vegeta]] from ''DragonBall'' fits this trope better than the rest of characters, with Piccolo most likely being 2nd.
-->'''[[AntiHero Vegeta]]:''' Welcome to the end of your life... and I promise it's going to hurt.
** Or...
-->'''[[AntiHero Vegeta (to Android 18)]]:''' If you give up now I promise to turn you into something practical, like a toaster or a washing machine.
** Even more than him [[OvershadowedByAwesome Yamcha]].
-->'''[[AntiHero Vegeta (to Krillin and Yamcha)]]:''' Whatever. Just stay out of my way when I tear [[BigBad Cell]] apart.
-->'''[[OvershadowedByAwesome Yamcha]]:''' This coming from the guy who was beat senseless by Cell?
** Tien too. When Android 18 came to Kami's Lookout Yamcha tries to scare her off (While keeping his distance).
-->'''[[TheChick Yamcha]]:''' Gohan's here, and he's stronger then Cell so why don't you get out of here.
-->'''[[SixthRanger Tien]]:''' Um... why don't you come a little closer and say that?
** Speaking of Android 18, her sarcasm is one of her most defining traits. When asked if her real name is legitimately "No. 18", she responds "My father was pretty dull". (In the original version, she replies "That it doesn't matter" before tossing the number at the World Tournament Announcer). She was kidding, by the way, her birth name [[NoNameGiven has never been revealed.]] (Until recently. It's [[spoiler:Lazuli]].)
** [[IdiotHero Goku]] is this at times to prove he isn't as stupid as people think he is.
* Misaki Matsuya from ''Manga/ExcelSaga'' manga is a powerful example. Once she renders Iwata and Watanabe into howling fits of laughter with a single deadpan sentence. It's made pretty clear that under her [[TheStoic stoic]] exterior lies the heart of a master humorist. Unfortunately her [[Anime/ExcelSaga anime]] counterpart didn't get a chance to test her skills in this field. Excel herself also shows signs of this trope.
* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'''s Archer, who has nothing but utter disdain for idealism, particularly in regards to his counterpart Shirou.
** Rin and Shirou definitely snark a lot too, though Shirou keeps his comments to himself most of the time. [[spoiler: Remove his politeness to keep his mouth shut and you get Archer.]]
* Riza Hawkeye in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. A high-ranking aide to Roy Mustang, she acts as both [[TheConscience his conscience]] and the [[StraightMan voice of reason]] on his staff, despite sometimes seeming to exist only to keep the other characters (including Mustang) in line and point out their shortcomings. She does snark in the manga, but always politely.
** [[TheHero Ed]] gets his share of snarkiness as well, often towards Mustang (and vice versa).
* Saikawa from ''Manga/GakuenBabysitters'' on occasion.
-->'''Taka''': *breathes heavily into the phone, having unexpected Saikawa to pick up, rather than Ryuuichi*
-->'''Kamitani''': Talk, you idiot! State who you are! What are you, a pervert? . . . *takes the phone* Ah, I'm sorry. It's me.
-->'''Saikawa''': If you're asking about my underwear, it's black today.
* Kiyomaro Takamine tends to fill this role often in ''GashBell'' due to his genius and the outright oddity of other characters' plans (usually Folgore's) that somehow work.
* Lots of characters from ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', especially Yorozuya trio, since good deal of the comedy is based on deadpan comments. But the snarkiest of them all has to be Okita Sougo. Almost everything that comes out of this guy's mouth is deadpan iced with lots of snark.
* [[TalkingAnimal Tippy]] of ''Manga/GochuumonWaUsagiDesuKa'' tends to make snarky remarks from time to time, especially towards anything [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Cocoa]] says.
* ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' Kyon fits this perfectly, as well as being the main character ''and'' the {{narrator}}. We aren't always sure if he's keeping a running commentary [[InnerMonologue in his head]] or [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud saying it out loud]]. However, the other characters reply accordingly. Kyon is the ''king'' of sarcasm! Just ''Listen'' to him!
%%** It appears that in the novels, Koizumi is developing into one .
%%* From {{Hellsing}}: There's [[BadassNormal Integra Hellsing]], [[RedheadedHero Pip Bernadette]], [[BadassBookworm Walter C. Dornez]], [[MadScientist The Doctor]] and [[{{Bifauxnen}} Hienkel Wolfe]] and [[BadassAdorable Seras Victoria]].
* ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDXD'' has Issei and Azazel who can snark at other people pretty well, especially [[FirstPersonSmartass when it's their turn to do the narration.]]
* In his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB-deYsf9ZM&fmt=18 image song]], Keiichi from ''HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' plays this role. In the actual series, he's more of a comedy person than a DeadpanSnarker. Rika plays the role in the series, when her persona isn't [[ObfuscatingStupidity showing]].
* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', [[TheStoic Jotaro's]] sense of humor tends to manifest in very blunt, matter-of-fact ways. For example: casually writing up a bill for the inevitable beatdown Steely Dan will suffer (as well as a receipt once it's done).
-->'''Jotaro:''' It's your tab. I have to make sure you pay me back, but I'm forgetful, so I'm writing it down.
* Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' seems almost incapable of opening his mouth without letting at least one sarcastic comment out.
%%* {{Kanamemo}} has Hinata and Saki.
%%* Souchiro's biological father, [[{{HotDad}} Reiji]] from [[{{Kare Kano}} Kare Kano]]
* ''Manga/{{Karneval}}'' 's worst offenders are Gareki and Hirato, but Tsukumo can start drilling it into cheerful Yogi's skull when he starts irritating or astounding her with his quirky actions
* Fran from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. It's even funnier since his teammates are all complete SnarkBait. He's also GenreSavvy.
* Madarao and Hakubi from ''Manga/{{Kekkaishi}}'' almost constantly take jabs at Yoshimori and each other.
* Kuroko, the [[TheStoic eternally deadpan]] titular character of ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', is this.
* [[{{Tsundere}} Kagami Hiiragi]] from ''Manga/LuckyStar'' is considered to be the GenderFlip version of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyon]]. She makes very cynical and sarcastic comments about [[OtakuSurrogate Konata]]'s {{otaku}} hobbies and her inability to put more focus on her academic studies. Kagami is supposed to be the most rational character of the FourGirlEnsemble. In the dub, Kagami sounds [[SuperlativeDubbing snarkier and angrier when it comes to these moments]].
* [[{{Bifauxnen}} Otto]] of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', who didn't lose her EmotionlessGirl personality after her HeelFaceTurn. She did, however, gain a snarky streak.
--> '''Vivio:''' [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent I am a normal third grader]]! Not "[[spoiler:[[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs Your Majesty]]]]"! \\
'''Otto:''' If I may say so, [[ImprobableAge I do not believe there are any other normal third graders with the title librarian at the Infinite Library]].
* Chisame of ''MahouSenseiNegima!'' acts like this a lot, as she's one of the only girls in her class who lacks a WeirdnessCensor.
%%** [[CynicalMentor Evangeline]] gets in on it too from time to time.
%%* Neuro from ''MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'', especially to his servants Yako and Godai.
* ''MarginalPrince'' gives us Henri, who has the art of snarking perfected to the point where the other characters will even [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] instances where Henri isn't present to snark at his favourite target, Alfed.
--> '''Henri:''' That's all right. Your stupidity is infectious.
--> '''Alfred:''' You're saying my stupdidty is infectious??
--> '''Henri:''' Well, you were born like that.
* Ruri Hoshino of ''MartianSuccessorNadesico'' does this so often that she, just like the examples in Western Animation and Live-Action TV, [[LittleMissSnarker used to]] have a trope named after her.
%%* Caren in ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'', until she [[GoodIsDumb joins up with Lucia for good]].
* [[JerkWithaHeartOfGold Kai Shiden]] from {{Mobile Suit Gundam}} likes to do this to either ruin everyone's moods, or make a bad situation feel worse. He gets better.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'s'' [[BrilliantButLazy Shikamaru]]. Possibly [[TheMentor Kakashi]] (he is so constantly deadpan it's questionable as to whether he's this or TheComicallySerious).
-->'''Kakashi:''' Naruto, you can't ''kill'' the client. That's not how it works.
%%** Tenten has shades of this too. She's definitively this in the spinoff ''Manga/RockLeesSpringtimeOfYouth''.
** Gaara becomes one in the Five Kages Conference responding to the Tsuchikage:
-->'''Tsuchikage:''' The makeup of the Five Kages sure has changed. It's hard to believe someone as young as yourself can become a Kazekage. Your father must have trained you very well, but you seem to be lacking in manners, boy.
-->'''Gaara:''' You're right. And yet here I am, as the Kazekage.
** [[BigBad Tobi]], aka [[spoiler:Obito]], is quite the snarker as well.
-->'''Tobi:''' Back away from the jinchuuriki... or don't you care if your son dies?
-->'''Minato:''' Hold it, j-just calm down!!
-->'''Tobi:''' You should take your own advice, Minato. I'm perfectly calm.
*** And earlier:
-->'''Tobi:''' It's what you'd call a fail-safe... Although he only got as far as the "fail" part.
** Both Neji and Sasuke are this, combined with the fact that they're both dark and tall, making them the typical TallDarkAndSnarky and [[TallDarkAndHandsome Handsome]] "[[AllGirlsWantBadBoys bad boys]]".
%%* From Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, There's [[HotScientist Ritsuko]], [[ShrinkingViolet Shinji]], [[DefrostingIceQueen Rei]] and [[HandsomeLech Kaji]].
* [[{{Nora}} Magari Kazuma]]: [[InsufferableGenius model student]], [[TrainingFromHell all-around athlete]], StudentCouncilPresident, [[SurroundedByIdiots surrounded by freaking idiots]].
* There are three types of characters in Manga/OnePiece: {{Deadpan Snarker}}s, madmen, and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Total Idiots]]. Sometimes characters will wear different hats (e.g. Usopp, who occasionally plays the fool, or plays snarker to Luffy's idiocy). Many characters share multiple roles, switching back and forth between them, and there are very few characters who are completely serious such that they display neither any ounce of stupidity or some snarker tendencies at some point.
* Fujioka Haruhi from ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' is a magnificently brutal snarker, especially where Tamaki is concerned. It helps that she often doesn't seem to realize that the things she says tend to hurt people's feelings. It also helps that she's apparently unaware of how fond the rest of the host club are of her.
* The ''[[Anime/{{Persona 4}} Persona 4]]'' anime turns the main character (named Yu Narukami) into this one, looking deadpan even if he's being kicked to a waterfall, or giving this line about one arguably homosexual underclassman after 'accepting' him.
-->'''Kanji''': Sempai, didn't you accept me!?
-->'''Yu''': Not at night.
** Actually, most of the humor involving Yu comes from the fact that ''it's hard to tell when he's kidding or being serious.''
* Ash's PokÚdex from ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'', at least early on, such as in the first episode when a Rattata tries to steal [[TheChosenOne Ash's]] food.
-->'''Ash:''' What is that doing here? This isn't a forest, it's an open field!\\
'''PokÚdex:''' It also comes out into open fields to steal food from ''stupid'' travelers.
** [[TheRival Gary Oak]], one of the show's resident {{jerkass}}es. [[LargeHam Every]]. [[DracoInLeatherpants Damn]]. [[JerkassDissonance Time.]] [[EccentricMillionaire He.]] [[BadassBoast Appears.]] And Max -- mostly directed at his sister or [[TheLancer Brock]], but has been known to take shots at anyone.
** Meowth also qualifies, usually aiming his jabs at [[GoldfishPoopGang Jessie and James]].
--> '''Jessie and James (wearing ridiculous dance outfits):''' This has to be our greatest plan yet!\\
'''Meowth:''' Dat's what worries me.
** And now in ''Best Wishes'' Ash's new rival [[SugarAndIcePersonality Trip]] is a very snarky individual. However, most of his comments goes toward Ash only and given [[HotBlooded Ash's]] [[{{Keet}} personality]], it's no wonder he makes them.
-->'''Trip:''' "That voice can be heard on the opposite side of the street..." (after Ash demands that he battle him completely ignoring the comment made)
--> '''Trip''': "Humans usually don't try to capture themselves in a Pokeball." (after Ash gets in the way of him trying to catch a Palpitoad causing Trip to accidentally hit Ash in the face with said Pokeball)
** Ash himself actually has a lot of Snarky lines throughout the original series.
-->'''Misty''' (about Snorlax): It looks like it's going to be sick!
-->'''Brock''': Well how would you feel if you got kissed by Meowth?
-->'''Ash''': I'd get a new mouth...
** Misty had some great snark too.
--> '''Gary''' (to Ash): Ash, I've never seen anyone so pathetic!
--> '''Misty''': Have you looked in a mirror?
* In ''Manga/PopcornAvatar'', this is the only way Kurando can get back at Lisa, as he's unable to really do anything else.
%%* The ''PrettyCure franchise'' has [[YesPrettyCure5 Cure Rouge]], [[SuitePrettyCure Cure Muse]], [[SmilePrettyCure Cure Sunny]] and [[DokiDokiPrettyCure Cure Diamond]].
%%* Ryoma Echizen from ''{{The Prince of Tennis}}'' is a preteen version of this (and one of the few ''male'' examples of LittleMissSnarker). Sadaharu Inui also exhibits DeadpanSnarker traits sometimes.
* Although in the first season of ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' Fakir was much more of a JerkAss, in the second season he calmed down a bit and started to swing into this {{trope}}.
-->'''Ahiru:''' Good morning, Fakir! You're up early!\\
'''Fakir:''' Early for ''you'', anyway.
* The manga version of [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ranma]] from ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma Ż]]'' is a DeadpanSnarker; his {{anime}} incarnation is not really one. Nabiki from the same series has her moments, though it is a much larger trait for her in {{Fanon}} than {{Canon}} and in the {{anime}} than the manga.
* Saito from [[RurouniKenshin Rurouni Kenshin]] has plenty of these moments. Kenshin himself often fits this trope; more so in the manga than the anime, as the anime is often dangerously close to [[FlanderIzation overusing]] his [[ObfuscatingStupidity oblivious act]].
%%** Even [[IdiotHero Sanosuke]] has his moments, though they tend to pop up when Saito's not around.
** Aoshi, in the manga, takes the "deadpan" part so far that the snark can get lost in translation.
%%* Jin from ''SamuraiChamploo''.
%%* Okara from ''[[SamuraiSeven Samurai 7]]''.
* The (almost) eternally-deadpan Kobushi Abiru of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''. She usually wears a neutral, bored expression on her face (or as much of it as can be seen under the bandages), occasionally uttering a cutting line to another of the students in her class while they're talking about something. In chapter 19 of the manga (volume 2 in tankobon), when Kotonon the heavily-photoshopped net idol is outraged over being called a fat-ass and nobody-has-ever-been-so-mean-as-to-call-me-that, Abiru quips "What? Not even once?" with a perfectly straight face (and tone of voice in the anime, IIRC). Many of her lines can be interpreted as being snarky; occasionally Nozomu-sensei receives some of this snark too, though more recent episodes have depicted Abiru to be more often smitten with him.
* Akira Takano from ''SchoolRumble'' tends to be the [[StraightMan voice of reason]] among her [[FourGirlEnsemble girl squad (with Tenma, Eri and Mikoto)]], and is able to make astute observations about the romantic hijinks of her friends while keeping a straight face the whole time.
* ''Manga/SekaiIchiHatsukoi'' gives us Ritsu Onodera because he's jaded about love, doesn't much care for his job as a Shoujo Manga editor and not happy that his boss, Takano, just so happens to be his ex first love. Takano is also very snarky as the no-nonsense head editor. There's also Kisa Shouta who's also jaded about romance and life in general and Yuu Yanase who's experiencing unrequited love.
%%* Kokage from ''{{Sketchbook}}'', which doesn't prevent her from doing awfully things herself from time to time.
%%* Rukawa Kaede from SlamDunk.
* Gourry in the original ''{{Slayers}}'' novels. With a healthy dose of ObfuscatingStupidity as well. Applies more to Zelgadis in the anime. Gourry is deadpan, but that's usually because he's serious and there's no hint of snark.
* ''SoulEater'': Liz is typically like this, befitting her role as OnlySaneMan of the PowerTrio consisting of her, her [[TheDitz ditz]] sister, and her SuperOCD Meister.
%%** Maka and Soul are pretty snarky themselves.
%%* Most of the time it's hard to tell though the biggest snarker in ''SpiderRiders'' is. Shadow, Magma, Lumen, and Hunter get in on the action.
* Leeron plays this role some of the time in ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
-->''Dai-Gurren begins filling up with [[color:blue:water]]''\\
'''Leeron''': So much for the quick fix...
* Hiroyuki Fujita, the {{main character}}, from ''ToHeart'' seems to fit in this category, although it seems to be a result of his laziness and the fact that he wants to "eat, play arcade games, and sleep the rest his life away". Despite his dry attitude, laziness, and tendency to tease girls who annoy him at times, he shows his sympathy through his actions rather than his words, no matter who it is.
-->'''Nagase:''' In any case, if she does come out, we'll have to do something.\\
'''Lemmy:''' Okay! The Astral Busters are on the job, right?\\
'''Hiroyuki:''' Why do you have to attack her? When she appears we're going to talk to her.\\
'''Lemmy:''' Is that so?\\
'''Hiroyuki:''' Were you even listening to us before?
%%* Despite being one of the two leads, Duzell in the manga ''VampireGame'' exemplifies this trope.
* Domeki in ''Manga/{{xxxHoLic}}'', who seems to have the unusual ability to ''always'' maintain a deadpan and monotone expression no matter what happens in order to add to his snarking ability. [[spoiler:Unless, that is, Watanuki is actually being serious and introspective, at which point he can't think of anything to say. Such as when Watanuki stupidly trades his eye away to help him or announces that he is taking of the shop until Yuuko (presumed dead, but there's reincarnation and stuff) returns.]]
* [[AntiHero Seto Kaiba]] has more than a few moments in ''Anime/YuGiOh''.
-->'''Kaiba:''' Anyone who is late to my tournament will be disqualified. Mokuba, make sure Wheeler's late.
** Or...
-->'''Gozaburo:''' I treated you better than my own son!\\
'''Kaiba:''' Thanks for nothing.
%%** [[BigBad The Spirit of the Millenium Ring]] and [[KnightTemplar Dartz]] do pretty well for themselves.
%%*** So does Yami/Atem, at least in the dub. He's even snarkier in the manga, somehow.
** ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'': Kaiser Ryo is quite snarky. It's more obvious in the dub, but he gets in a few in the original.
-->'''Aster''': Something's happening. (as a massive beam of light explodes from the sky)
-->'''Zane''': You think? What gave it away, genius?
* In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'', Astral alternates between being incredibly naive (like the [[InnocentAliens Innocent Alien]] he resembles) and needlessly sarcastic, sometimes both at once. In fact, it's often hard to tell whether his sarcasm is intentional or not. For example, in the dub version, he says this after Cathy's duel with Dog-Chan:
-->'''Astral:''' Observation #18: People say dogs are a man's best friend. Yuma would make a good dog.
** Note that his observation has a somewhat different meaning in the original version.
* Yako in ''Manga/{{Yurara}}'', especially towards Mei. Mei snarks right back at him, but is less deadpan about it.
* Kurama and Hiei in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', with Hiei being an out-and-out jerk and Kurama being a bit more subtle. They're at their best when they're snarking at each other. Yusuke does this sometimes as well, as part of his wisecracking routine.
** In the manga-only ending, when [[spoiler: Kurama is mistaken for a female several times, then asked to help with a case at an all girls' school, and he asks if he need to do something as a disguise (Yusuke was already snuck in once) or just go as is, Keiko remarking to Yusuke about how scary Kurama was. Each time you can't see his face, making the mood even weirder.]]
* KeyVisualArts LOVES this {{trope}}.
** ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'' (2006 {{anime}}) has Yuuichi Aizawa. Many comparisons are made between Kyon and Yuuichi, especially because of a few similarities in appearance and having [[Creator/TomokazuSugita the same seiyuu.]] However, both characters are vastly different; whereas Kyon makes such comments to himself, or intends only himself to hear, since he is usually bored or silently shocked at the "stupidity" around him, Yuuichi openly states such comments to tease his friends. Yuuichi's snarky commentary usually translates into good-natured fun and flirting rather than disdainful commentary.
** Yukito from ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'' also demonstrates snarkiness but it may just be that since he is quite mature, his attitude of common sense and practicality contrasts even more when he is surrounded by childish females.
** Tomoya Okazaki of ''VisualNovel/{{CLANNAD}}'' likes playing pranks on anyone gullible enough to fall for them (Sunohara in particular - it's implied he does it just to see if he'll fall for them). He does this with a completely straight face, which makes it all the funnier. However, he seems to make such comments aloud only to mock others, once again differentiating himself from other KyoAni leads. He's not above making wry comments either:
-->'''Sunohara:''' When the time comes, Okazaki, I trust you to watch my back.\\
'''Okazaki:''' ''(Enthusiastically)'' Lucky! I'll be sure to stab you well.
%%** Otonashi from ''Anime/AngelBeats'', in a more MetaGuy sense.
