What it says on the tin - a character with some sort of disability and strong sarcastic tendencies. This can be portrayed in a variety of ways - maybe they use snark as a coping mechanism or way to vent, maybe their position as a social outsider has given them an irreverent view of the world, maybe the author is deliberately trying to avoid the InspirationallyDisadvantaged stereotype, or perhaps smartassitude is just endemic to the character's nature. Subtrope of DeadpanSnarker, usually overlaps with EmoTeen to some extent if the character fits that age group. Compare DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery.

If the character is physically disabled, they may also be a NonActionSnarker.


[[folder: Anime and Manga ]]

* Prosthetic-limbed Edward Elric from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is an epic snarker. There's also SternTeacher Izumi Curtis, who's missing her uterus and parts of her digestive tract and frequently coughs up BloodFromTheMouth.
* [[EyepatchOfPower Hwa Ryun]] from ''TowerOfGod''.


[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* Thea, in ''DykesToWatchOutFor'' (not as much a snarker as anal-retentive and unwilling to suffer fools gladly).


[[folder: Fanfic ]]

* ''Fanfic/{{Brainbent}}'' turns [[{{Homestuck}} Dave Strider]] into one of these. Dave keeps his deadpan-snarky means of expressing himself ([[ElectiveMute when he's willing to talk to people]]), but since in this story Dave's a realistically-portrayed HeroicAlbino, he has very poor eyesight.


[[folder: Film ]]

* Patches O'Houlihan in ''Film/DodgeballATrueUnderdogStory''.
* Philippe in ''Film/{{Intouchables}}''.
* Rhonda in ''Film/PsychoBeachParty''.
* Roland in ''Film/{{Saved}}''.
* Eugene in ''Film/{{Gattaca}}''.
* Charles Xavier in the ''Film/XMen'' movies.
* Vanellope Von Schweetz in ''Disney/WreckItRalph'', since her glitching is treated like a disability in-universe, and she is definitely [[LittleMissSnarker snarky]].
* Lewis, the blind roommate played by Jeff Daniels in ''Film/TheLookout'', gets his share of snarking in. "Please tell me you're not waving your hand in front of my face."


[[folder: Jokes ]]

* The amputee joke: You can't trust doctors -- you give them a foot, they take a leg.


[[folder: Literature ]]

* Jenny Wren in the Creator/CharlesDickens novel ''Our Mutual Friend'', who is also an early example of LittleMissSnarker.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** Tyrion Lannister, the dwarf (no, not [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame that kind]]).
** Later we have to add [[spoiler: his brother]] to the list. Inverted in that he was a smartass a long time before he became disabled, but the snark gets a lot more bitter afterwards.
* There's one of these in ''Literature/WorldWarZ''. Though you could say he deserves it considering he lived through the zombie apocalypse WHILE being wheelchair bound.
* Philip Durant in ''[[Creator/AgathaChristie Ordeal By Innocence]]''.
* Agnes Thatcher in ''Is That You, Miss Blue?''
* Ed Fargo in ''Literature/{{Fearless}}''
* HandicappedBadass Caine after ''[[Literature/TheActsOfCaine Heroes Die]]''. "It's like having a pair of dead dogs strapped to my ass. Except that I can't eat them."
* Glokta in ''Literature/TheFirstLaw''. Being tortured for two years does give you a new perspective.
* The Rat in ''TheLostPrince''. Rides around on a wooden platform with wheels because his legs are deformed and useless, and leads a street gang with the power of snark.
* Doakes in ''Literature/{{Dexter}}'' (but not in the TV series)
* [[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Miles Vorkosigan]], though a great deal of his snarking is internal.
* Jayfeather of Literature/WarriorCats: "Oh great. Let's lump all the useless cats together and hope a tree falls on them!"
* Dean Priest from the ''EmilyOfNewMoon'' series. Years of namecalling made him develop a sharp tongue.
* [[spoiler:Thorgil]] from ''Literature/TheSeaOfTrolls'' was always a snarker, but became a Disabled Snarker after [[spoiler:losing the use of her right hand in the second book in the series.]]


[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* Dr. Gregory House, of ''Series/{{House}}''. His injured leg gives him horrible pain nearly constantly, and it's sort of DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery. However, flashbacks suggests he was snarky and a jerk even when he was completely healthy, but it made him more bitter.
* Midshipman Archie Kennedy in the first and third ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' TV movies. He seems to have recovered from his seizure disorder by the fourth movie, but keeps up the snarky commentary tinged with slight self-depreciation. He is either deadpan or smirks and smiles. As a sample of his glorious snarks, here is his introducing Horatio to the ship and other midshipmen:
-->'''Archie:''' His majesty's ship of the line ''Justinian'', known elsewise among her intimates as the good ship ''Slough of Despond''.
* Maeby Funke pretends to be one of these in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' to try to prove that an "Inner Beauty Pageant" is only really looking for girls with pretty faces.
* Elayne Boosler as Joy Buscaglia on ''Series/NightCourt'' is blind. At first people were forgiving of her assholery because of her disability, then found out she was like that before she became blind.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** Pamela Barnes, the BlindSeer sarcastic chick, though she was already sarcastic before she became blind.
** Bobby in Season 5.
* Gaeta in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' showed a growing level of snark through the series, but he became particularly more sarcastic after losing his leg.
* Artie in ''Series/{{Glee}}''.
* Walt Jr. in ''Series/BreakingBad''
* In ''Series/{{Lost}}'', Ben is regularly a DeadpanSnarker and spends most of season 3 in a wheelchair. Of course, this being the island, the disabled part doesn't last long.
* Jimmy Brooks in ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration''. Viewers get to see him develop this trait over time as a coping mechanism.
* Jace Newfield of the [[DisneyChannel DCOM]] ''Going to the Mat.'' He even gets [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech called out]] on his constant wisecracking.
-->'''Mary Beth:''' People don't care that you're blind. They're turned off because they think you're a total snob.
* Billy Homer in ''Series/PressGang''. And then some.
* An episode of ''Series/PushingDaisies'' features a young boy with heart disease who communicates exclusively in snarks.
* Emmett, the so-called "Deaf James Dean" on ''Series/SwitchedAtBirth''
* Jake, the blind guy at the newsstand in ''{{Becker}}'', one of the few who can take [[DrJerk Dr. Becker's]] guff and dish it out as well.
* Finch, of ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', who has a limp and suffers from chronic back pain. Also doubles as a GentlemanSnarker.
* Richard Harrow of ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' has his moments; him being TheStoic helps.
* Mr. Wrench of ''Series/{{Fargo}}'', a deaf hitman who engages in some serious SnarkToSnarkCombat with his partner and interpreter.


[[folder: Radio ]]

* Sergeant [=McGurk=] in ''Radio/RevoltingPeople'', who has less than half of his original body parts. He's written and played by Andy Hamilton and, like Satan from ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'' is therefore a particularly vicious and cynical snarker.


[[folder: Role Playing Games ]]

* ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'' has Greybeard, who, despite missing a hand and being blind in one eye, remains one of Dino Attack Team's snarkiest members.


[[folder: Theatre ]]

* Richard from ''Theatre/RichardIII'', portrayed as a hunchback, might be the UrExample. (The discovery of the skeleton of the real [[RichardOfGloucester Richard III]] in 2012 revealed that while he was not a hunchback as old stories had claimed, he ''did'' have a severe case of scoliosis.)
* Judy from ''The Mothership''. "This is just like James Bond. In a not really sort of way."


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* Malik from ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI''.
* ''KatawaShoujo'':
** {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Rin.
** [[HGamePOVCharacter Hisao]].
** Shizune also falls here. Hisao wonders whether she had difficulty learning the concept of sarcasm without the ability to sense tone, but it's clear she eventually mastered it.
* Joker from ''Franchise/MassEffect''.
--> '''Joker:''' What am I going to do, break a rib at them?
* Snake of ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors''. Especially when people underestimate him for his blindness.
* ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' has [[spoiler: GLaDOS when she becomes temporarily trapped in a potato.]]


[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* Dr. Birding, a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed stand-in for Stephen Hawking from ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''.
* Ken Spence in ''{{Magellan}}''.
* Davan's sister Dahlia in ''SomethingPositive'', although her snark is pretty much a family trait, only amplified by the people who confuse "disabled" with "retarded".
* Reggie in ''Webcomic/PvP'', who's had to point out more than once that being blind doesn't [[{{DisabilitySuperpower}} make him Daredevil]].


[[folder: Website ]]

* [[http://community.livejournal.com/dot_gimp_snark/profile This]] community at Website/LiveJournal. They are called dot_gimp_snark and the description says the following: "Disabled people snark about life as a gimp. We're disabled, not dead. Cattiness is extremely important - if you just want to bitch without style, there are other places to do it. Whining is not snarking."


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* Toph Beifong of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Since she's a LittleMissBadass with a DisabilitySuperpower, being blind doesn't cause her that many problems, but she's always got a sharp crack on hand for when it does. She likes to roundaboutly call attention to the fact by commenting on appearances. She gets Sokka with that one a lot.
--> '''Sokka:''' Toph, I was going through town and I saw this. (Shows a Wanted poster of Toph)
--> '''Toph:''' Well, it ''sounds'' like a sheet of paper, but I guess you're referring to what's ''on'' the sheet of paper.
** Not helped by the fact that the Gaang tend to often forget Toph is blind.
-->'''Katara:''' ''(holding up the same Wanted poster of Toph)'' Well then, what's this?!
-->'''Toph''': I don't ''know!'' I mean, seriously, what is ''wrong'' with you people?! I'M BLIND!
** The best instance is when they're flying through the desert trying to find a tower.
-->'''Toph''': There it is! ''*Everyone looks to where she's pointing*'' That's what it'll sound like when one of you spots it. ''*Cheerfully waves a hand in front of her eyes to highlight their mistake*''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Leela's blind nemesis from the orphanarium, Kirk. What a jerk! He makes fun of Leela for being one-eyed while he cannot see at all. Seriously, he deserves to have his ass kicked.
* Alistair Smythe in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries''. After the initial Spider-Slayer arc, he spends most of his time in Crime Central bantering with the Kingpin.
* The wheelchair-bound protagonist of ''WesternAnimation/{{Pelswick}}'' is snarky about everyone and everything, including himself. He uses it as both a way of making light of situations and as a way of deflecting attacks from bullies.
** A PhonyPsychic once tried to prove his abilities by asking Pelswick if he had ever been in a major accident. "No, this thing is just an elaborate belt buckle."
* Garrett from ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''
-->'''Kayley:''' Oh, I didn't realize you were...
-->'''Garrett:''' Tall? Handsome? Rugged?
-->'''Kayley:''' Blind.
-->'''Garrett:''' You know, I always forget that one.


[[folder: Real Life ]]

* StephenHawking, in RealLife. In one of his books, he remarks that before Cambridge offered him the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics (some prestigious professorship), said chair wasn't motorized.
* Alexander Pope, the eighteenth century poet. He was an [[IllBoy Ill Guy]] for much of his life due to a form of tuberculosis, and wrote several famous satires of the follies of his contemporaries.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Callahan_(cartoonist) John Callahan]], the quadriplegic cartoonist known for offending just about everybody.
* Louis Braille (the guy who invented Braille). If biographies written about him are of any merit, he tended to be an arrogant jerkass, believing all of France was against his idea and generally acted like a martyr because he was blind. In one of the biographies about him, this drove a big wedge between him and his girlfriend who soon left him for another man.
* British Paralympic cyclist Jon-Allen Butterworth apparently finds it amusing when people ask [[http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=plcp&v=fTYh5KhEgPA "Do you need a hand?"]]
* David Sedaris, American humorist who suffered from OCD and Tourette's Syndrome as a boy.
* A ''lot'' of handicapped people are this way in real life [[DisabledMeansHelpless due to the subtle ways they're discriminated against, dehumanized, condescended to and degraded]] by the non-disabled population, often through no fault of the able, whose slights are committed out of ignorance, with no conscious awareness that they're offending/insulting the handicapped, who resort to snark as a coping technique/defense mechanism. This can sometimes lead to DisabilityAsAnExcuseForJerkassery, but everyone has bad days.
** Or, heck, maybe they're snarky people who just happen to be disabled on the side.
* In a SuperBowl advert for Duracell, Seattle Seahawks player Derrick Coleman says the following of those who told him his dream of playing in the NFL were over when he wasn't drafted: "I've been deaf since I was three, so I didn't listen".
