->''A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.''
-->-- '''OscarWilde'''

In a World of Snark, every character is either a DeadpanSnarker (who falsely believes themself to be the OnlySaneMan completely SurroundedByIdiots) or, rarely, a {{ditz}} of any kind. These works usually lie far on the Cynical end of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, and most of their humor comes from the characters' reactions to what they perceive as their crappy lives and constant snarking matches.

This is not to say that this world is incapable of having genuine, tender moments. Half the cast may be jerks, but the rest may be [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerks with hearts of gold]].

[[folder:Anime And Manga]]
* As the characters of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' [[MediumAwareness know that they are in fact characters in a manga/anime]] it typically results in literally almost every character being sarcastic or witty if they have any lines at all. Nagi and Hinagiku tend towards snarking at villains and some of the more ridiculous weirdos that pop up, but the Student Council Rangers, Ayumu, Wataru, and even Maria all make remarks at the expense of the plot or craziness around them. Hayate himself probably takes the cake, especially in the manga where he is ''a lot'' more cynical than he usually appears and has had exasperated reactions to just about everything and everybody. The series is so full of snark that when Hayate and Hinagiku are inadvertently acting like a lovey-dovey couple with no other characters around it resorts to using nameless background characters, a pigeon, and even a potted plant to make sarcastic comments about them.
* ''SoredemoMachiWaMawatteiru'' has a cast that is equal parts {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s and {{Deadpan Snarker}}s, with a GeniusDitz main character.
* ''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.
* ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'': Part of what makes the series entertaining despite a lot of it being just people talking is the fact that the Abh have perfected the art of subtly insulting one another on a regular basis. Just about every conversation among them has snarks getting thrown back and forth.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
%% * A lot of comics written by Creator/PeterDavid.
%% ** {{ComicBook/Dreadstar}}
%% ** ''ComicBook/IncredibleHulk''
%% ** ''XFactor''
* Every single word in ''ComicBook/RatQueens'' drips with sarcasm. And most of the spaces between words, too.
* Everbody in ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'' gets some digs in at everyone else.


* Pick an {{MST}} fic. ''Any'' {{MST}} fic. Considering the genre is made on mocking bad fanfics and pointing out inconsistances, it's a crime ''not'' to have it full of {{Deadpan Snarker}}s.
* ''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.
* ''FanFic/UninvitedGuests'', thanks to all the ''[[CrackFic absurdly nonsensical events]]'' that happens all the time, even the most unlikely characters, like [[BloodKnight Ken]][[HotBlooded pachi]], snarks at some point.
* In ''Fanfic/OfLoveAndBunnies'', the characters are all former PowerRangers, and they snark to take attention away from [[WeirdnessMagnet the strangeness of their lives]].
* ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'' has literally ''everyone'' snarking at one point or another, usually to deal with how completely weird their lives are and the darkness of the times.
%% * ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', by the same author as ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'', takes this trope UpToEleven.
%% * ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'' [[UpToEleven to the extreme]].
* ''Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops'' take place in a ''multiverse'' of snark, mostly due to every reality being trapped in a [[GroundhogDayLoop time loop]] and those that are aware of it have to either accept that fact or potentially go insane.
* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' is approaching this trope. Almost everyone has dropped at least one snarky line.
* ''Fanfic/TheBiterBit'': It is, after all, a ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fic. However, it increases the already dense concentration of snark in the Potteverse by making Luna a DeadpanSnarker when she isn't being a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. If a character has more than a single line of dialogue in this fic and isn't called Horace Slughorn, they're going to snark.
* Pretty much everyone is snarky in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. Even ''Jesus Christ'' and ''Satan'' have plenty of snark in their scenes.
* ''Fanfic/WeissReacts:'' Everyone has dropped at least one snarky line. [[OnlySaneMan Weiss]] does it the most, but even [[NiceGirl Ruby]] and [[LargeHam Tukson]] have done so.

* ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'', written by Creator/AaronSorkin. It helps that some characters are having disputes and lawsuits with each other.
%% * Anything written by KevinSmith.
%% * ''Film/EasyA''.
%% * ''StarWars'' and its Expanded Universe. A scary accurate rule of thumb is the more snarky someone is, the more important they'll be.
%% * ''Film/NorthByNorthwest''
%% * ''Film/TheThinMan'' series. A majority of the comedy from the StudioSystem era, and a good deal of the mystery and suspense, falls into this trope.
%% * ''Film/KissKissBangBang''
%% * ''Film/TheLastBoyScout'', because of Shane Black.
* 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/TheAvengers'' doesn't lead to people having snark overdoses in the cinema. In the Director's Commentary for Film/TheAvengers, Joss notes that the reason Agent Coulson was made a [[{{Squee}} Squeeing]] CaptainAmerica FanBoy was to keep the film from being "a desert of dry wit".
-->''[[GracefulLoser If it's all the same to you]], [[INeedAFreakingDrink I think I'll have that drink now.]]''

'''Brandt''': That all you got? A cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner?\\
'''Tony''': Sweetheart, that could be the name of my autobiography.
%% * ''[[Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix 1776]]''
* ''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).
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga''. Most characters have their share of snarky moments, with a great example being [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK056dWK7ts Bruce taking Selina to a dance]].
* The ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' series. At the time, it was revolutionary for being among the first[[note]]There had been predecessors, including ''Scream'' director Creator/WesCraven's own ''[[Film/WesCravensNewNightmare New Nightmare]]'' a couple of years prior, but ''Scream'' was the film that truly popularized it.[[/note]] horror movie worlds in which the main characters were aware of the existence of horror movies. Casey, one of the first victims, watches her boyfriend die because she messed up on Ghostface's trick question about horror trivia, while FinalGirl Sidney [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtsmQlLuQpc voices her disdain]] for scary movies as being filled with bad acting, [[TooDumbToLive fatally stupid decisions]], {{exploitation|Film}}, and [[ClicheStorm tired cliches]].
%% * Any HumphreyBogart movie.
%%% NOTE TO EDITORS: List concrete examples.%%%

* Fanfiction writers for the ''Literature/HIVESeries'' face a challenge upon entering the fandom: writing clever remarks is required for all characters, in all situations, at all times. In-universe, arguments go on for pages about who is the funniest. The snark is strongest with [[InsufferableGenius Otto]], [[LovableAlphaBitch Shelby]], and [[MamaBear Raven]]. However, every one of the good guys and most of the bad guys are snarky as well. [[GadgeteerGenius Laura]] will only snark in [[LetsGetDangerous dangerous situations]], and [[GentleGiant Wing]] will only snark if someone questions his ability to snark. Overall, in every scene there is someone who is willing to snark in that situation.
-->'''Otto'''(on a trip away from the H.I.V.E. with Raven): Do we get a bedtime story?
-->'''Raven'''(irritated): Absolutely. Here, we'll read one of my favorites. It's called ''The Little Boy and the Tranquilizer Gun.''
-->'''Otto''': Does it have a happy ending?
* Creator/DavidEddings: ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'' isn't a comedy or very cynical, but you're lucky to go two pages in the series without two characters snarking at each other or nothing in particular.
%% ** ''TheElenium''. %%% If you add context, fix example indentation as well.
* The ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' series. To the extent that, if a character isn't snarky, they're either insignificant or incompetent. Usually both.
* ''Literature/{{Dragaera}}'', especially the Vlad novels. Almost every character is either a DeadpanSnarker or someone who FirstPersonSmartass Vlad can make snarky comments about. Given that they're [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis presented as transcripts of narrated recordings]] and Vlad is a known UnreliableNarrator, it's possible he's just projecting.
* ''PercyJackson''. The powers that demigods and gods are born with must include snarkiness, because well, they are. Even the chapter titles are snarky!
%% * Rick Riordan's series ''The Kane Chronicles''.
%% * ''Heroes of Olympus'' series has copious amounts of snark.
* The ''{{Nightside}}'' series is chock full of snarkers, as it's set in what's probably the most jaded place on Earth.
* ''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.
* The ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'' series has three kinds of dialogue: Exposition, snark, and [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs snarky exposition]].
%% * Most of Creator/TerryPratchett's work.
* Frequent in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' since the main character is a massive DeadpanSnarker and almost every other character has at least a few snarky moments. Even [[KnightInShiningArmor Michael]] gets a moment or two, particularly when borrowing [[TheNicknamer Harry's]] name for the Denarians. Harry claims that the Dresdenverse runs so strongly on this that badass immortals will be insulted if he doesn't snark at them, implying they're beneath his snarking. Take that with a bit of salt, because he was justifying mouthing off to two incredibly-dangerous beings to one of their lower-ranked (but still badass) coworkers.
* ''Literature/CodexAlera'': Nobody in JimButcher's works takes anything seriously unless they're the bad guy.
* The [[Creator/PGWodehouse Wodehouse]] [[TheVerse 'verse]] fits the bill nicely. Much snark is had at the expense of [[UpperClassTwit Upper Class Twits]]--many of whom can, in fact, [[HiddenDepths be pretty snarky themselves]].
* Charlotte [=MacLeod's=] mysteries novels. Her primary snarkers are Hilda Horsefall in the Balaclava County novels and Uncle Jem in the Kelling ones.
%% * The Literature/MediochreQSethSeries. Even the ''[[LemonyNarrator third-person narrative]]'' is a DeadpanSnarker at times.
* Creator/GeorgeRRMartin's epic fantasy ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Fans have lovingly dubbed the Stark family [[{{Pun}} "House Snark"]]. Taken UpToEleven in the [[Series/GameOfThrones HBO adaptation]].
* Scott Lynch's ''GentlemanBastard'', where the lead character is a [[DeadpanSnarker snarker]], his trusted associate is a [[DeadpanSnarker snarker]], the rest of their team full of [[RuleOfThree snarkers]], their allies, enemies and targets are [[OverlyLongGag snarkers]]. The flashbacks show that the past times also were full of snark, whether it is in Camorr or among Bondsmagi. [[GentlemanThief Locke Lamora]] seems to be physically incapable ''not'' to snark, ''even'' if doing so would save him a world of pain - which may be why he is the main character.
%% * ''Literature/MortalInstruments''
%% * ''Literature/InfernalDevices''.
* ''Literature/{{Heroics}}'': The number of characters who ''aren't'' snarky can be counted on one hand, and it's almost impossible to find a (named) character who doesn't make at least one sarcastic comment. [[DeadpanSnarker Tess]] [[MissionControl Cassidy]] is a standout, but she gets some good competition from everyone else.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' and ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. Everyone, and we mean '''''everyone''''', can potentially be the source of well-aimed snarks. Even {{Butt Monkey}}s on both shows get in their shots.
* ''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 main cast of the first four ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series qualify, in a relatively restrained way, adding more to the "high-class" image of Starfleet and Trek humans than anything else.
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Janitor, Cox, Jordan, Kelso, Carla, JD... List goes on and on. Everybody is sarcastic with everybody.
* ''Series/MyFamily'': Husband and wife Ben and Susan seem to be engaged in a constant deadpan snarkery contest. Easy to see where their son Michael gets it from.
%% * ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''
* ''Series/{{House}}'': We have a protagonist who practically cannot exhale without snarking, we have his team who eventually learn to snark back at him (enabling [[SnarkToSnarkCombat 2-4 player snarkball ping pong matches]]), we have his best friend who normally is unsnarky but at times [[NotSoAboveItAll cannot resist it]], we have his boss who breathes sarcasm (possibly as a reaction to the snarking protagonist)...
%% * ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''
%% * ''Series/FawltyTowers''
* ''Series/RedDwarf'': Lister and Rimmer's interaction in early episodes consisted solely of SnarkToSnarkCombat. The ship's computer Holly (his male form) hardly opened his mouth without being ironic or sarcastic. Cat is the group's dumbass but he had his snarky moments as well. Holly in a female form alternated between TheDitz and a solid snarker. When they got android Kryten, he was quite servile and literal-minded, but Lister managed to break his programming. In his "lie mode", he could snark gloriously.
* ''Series/VeronicaMars''. It's easier to list who isn't a Deadpan Snarker, and the only main character on that list is a dog. The rest of the list is two minor recurring characters.
* Everything Creator/JossWhedon has written, ever.
** ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': The whole intrepid crew are {{Deadpan Snarker}}s, especially Mal (TheCaptain and TheHero), Zoe (his {{Lancer}}) and her husband of an AcePilot Wash. Jayne, a hired gun and their tough guy, is the group's [[TheDitz Ditz]]. Kaylee TheChick was generally too nice to snark, but when she was angry, she could do it. (Inara: "So are there aliens among us?"-- Kaylee: "Yes, and one of them is a doctor." She said it when Simon kind of insulted her, albeit not intentionally.) It's safe to say that everybody from the main cast had some smart-ass comments.
** ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': As if Whedon didn't put enough snark in the MarvelCinematicUniverse, comes a series of this.
--->'''Maria Hill''': What does S.H.I.E.L.D. stand for, Agent Ward?\\
'''Grant Ward''': Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.\\
'''Maria Hill''': And what does that mean to you?\\
'''Grant Ward''': It means someone really wanted our initials to spell out "shield."
%% ** ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' deserves a special mentioning. Just about every character ever seen is snarky as hell. %%% More CONTEXT would be sweet.
%% ** ''[[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Dr. Horrible]]''
%% ** ''Series/{{Angel}}''
* ''Series/HogansHeroes''. The only main characters who don't get to snark at least OnceAnEpisode are Carter and Schultz, and even they get their chance at snark sometimes. Even [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Adolf]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch verdammt]] [[BigBad Hitler]] gets an amusing snark in. When Hogan, as part of ThePlan, pretends to want to spread German propaganda, he spreads it in a way that gives a Naziism-is-stupid impression. Hitler himself calls the studio to tell Klink that if Hogan tries to escape, to let him.
* ''Series/GilmoreGirls'': Everybody snarks in the quirky town of Stars Hollow, though some of its {{Cloudcuckoolander}} inhabitants sometimes serve as {{The Ditz}}es and dumbasses. TheProudElite represented by Emily and Richard Gilmore and posh Chilton and Yale students are snarky a lot as well. Rory and Lorelai trade snarks with each other in most of their dialogues, and they both love arguing affectionately with Luke (an owner of the local bistro and Lorelai's WillTheyOrWontThey love interest) or Sookie (Lorelai's [[HeterosexualLifePartners Heterosexual Life Partner]]). Luke and his nephew Jess have SnarkToSnarkCombat dynamics. Well, the list could go on and on.
%% * ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''
%% * ''Series/ICarly''
%% * ''Series/{{Victorious}}''
%% * ''Series/BigTimeRush''
%% * ''Series/That70sShow'', particularly when Hyde and Donna talk.
%% * ''Series/{{Community}}''. Especially Jeff, but all the characters have some pretty good snarks.
* 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?
* ''TheMiddleman'' is an interesting example, as the title character himself is too earnest to be particularly snarky. Everyone else, on the other hand...
* ''Series/BlakesSeven'', set in a CrapsackWorld where snark is universal, having such uses as: distraction (anyone in need of a getaway; Vila); defence (anyone being held prisoner, tortured, shot at, etc; anyone dealing with Avon), coercion (snark-to-snark combat; Blake); everything (Avon). The more idealistic characters (Gan, Cally, Dayna, Blake) entered the series with a relatively low level of snark. Their snarkiness grew on a par with their cynicism, especially with Blake. Avon was King of Snark, and every character becomes more snarky proportionally to how often they interact with him. Except Dayna, who can out-snark him from her first episode.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': Snark is basically how everybody communicates in this show. If you look it up, nearly every WhamLine is snark.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Are there any non-snarky hunters? Demons? Angels? Apparently, all characters are either snarky or ComicallySerious.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The main character 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.
%% * ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''
%% * ''CurbYourEnthusiasm''
%% * ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''
%% * ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen''
* Basically everyone in ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. In their defense, they ''have'' to be this way: anyone who can't hold their own in a snark-off would get eviscerated by the Crane brothers, who are probably the deadpan world champions.
%% * ''Series/CornerGas''
* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. Sherlock Holmes: TallDarkAndSnarky; John Watson: DeadpanSnarker and OnlySaneMan; Mycroft Holmes: GentlemanSnarker. Most of the rest of the cast - be they villains or good guys - snark often.
* ''Series/{{Elementary}}''. Sherlock's lack of tact and often bizarre leaps of logic tends to elicit sarcastic responses from Joan, Captain Gregson, and Detective Bell.
-->'''Sherlock:''' Have you always been this observant? I'm asking sincerely, I'm wondering if exposure to my methods has helped you in anyway.
--> '''Bell:''' [sarcastically] Actually, before you came along, I've never closed a case. Neither had the rest of the department. Most of us were thinking of packing up, leaving. Letting the city fend for itself!
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'', where the main characters actually have to constantly snark in order to keep their sanity.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'', starting with both protagonists Agents Mulder and Scully and their boss AD Skinner. Episodes with snarky [[TheAstrologer astrologers]] like Madame Zirinka from "Syzygy" or snarky cynical [[{{Seers}} psychics]] like Mr Clyde Bruckman belong among the most memorable.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'' and ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' have the entire cast snarking it up, some more deadpan than others. Even TheStoic Teal'c gets in on it now and again, and with him less is more: it's ''epic'' when he does it. It's not just limited to the heroes either, with Ba'al and Todd the Wraith having a ''lot'' of fun engaging in SnarkToSnarkCombat against the people of Earth, often when they've been forced into an EnemyMine situation.
* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'': As an early 21st century [[BritCom British]] GovernmentProcedural [[{{Satire}} satirising]] {{Whitehall}}, this is mandatory.
* ''Series/{{Friends}}'': Although Chandler is known as the DeadpanSnarker of the gang, the rest of the characters (apart from maybe Joey) would be extremely snarky on any other show. It's just hard to notice because 90% of his dialogue is snark, while everyone else only manages a weak 80%.
* ''Series/YesMinister'', an Eighties [[BritCom British]] GovernmentProcedural [[{{Satire}} satirising]] {{Whitehall}}. Jim Hacker, said minister, was often out-smarted by Sir Humphrey and managed to utter just a desperate snarky one-liner. His assistant Bernard was torn between being loyal to Minister and to Sir Humphrey, and he often snarked at both. Sir Humphrey was a master of elaborate sophisticated and sneering speeches. Jim Hacker's wife was a very nice lady, but could be snide with her husband as well, especially about politics.
%% * ''Series/BabylonFive''
* ''{{Series/Roseanne}}'' in spades, with Roseanne, Darlene, and in later seasons DJ pushing snarkiness to new heights.
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'': There are many {{Deadpan Snarker}}s among the characters. Let us count the ways: Captain Keene, Captain Pellew, Midshipman (later Acting Lieutenant and Lieutenant) Archie Kennedy, the Duchess AKA Kitty Cobham, GentlemanSnarker Major Edrington, TallDarkAndSnarky Lieutenant Bush, and some more. They do not exchange snarks with each other, but they are paired with poor SarcasmBlind Horatio, who is a genius at every other thing but irony, jokes and sarcasm usually escape him. However, some of Archie's smartass comments bring about his rare and most attractive smile.
%% * ''{{Series/Kaamelott}}''
* ''Series/{{Grimm}}'': A large percentage of the main cast are cops, [[TruthInTelevision who tend to snark as a coping mechanism anyway]]. Add in assorted weird events, conspiracies, and so on, and it's not a big surprise that even the non-cop cast members can hold their own in snark-fests.
%% * ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''- it's hard to find a character that '''hasn't''' gotten in on the snark before.
* Pretty much every character on ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' was guilty of snark at one time or another, especially Cory in early seasons. Other snarkers are Mr. Turner and Mr. Feeny.
--> '''Feeny:''' Well, well, Mr. Turner, your little experiment in democracy has left the eighth grade leaderless for next year.
--> '''Turner:''' Too bad. I was looking forward to Matthews' five day weekend.

--> Matthews, Hunter. I'm sorry, was my lesson interrupting your conversation?

--> '''Feeny:''' Jonathan, remember, there is a faculty meeting today.
--> '''Turner:''' ''(excited)'' You mean the mandatory one after school that every member of staff is required to go to?
--> '''Feeny:''' Yes.
--> '''Turner:''' Please don't make me go.
* ''Series/TheLibrarians2014'' has quite the list of snarkers. Eve, being the AgentScully, is capable at snarking about her disbelief about the craziness that surrounds her.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' has an incredible number of snarkers. Team Arrow has [[GeniusDitz Felicity]] [[DeadpanSnarker Smoake]], [[DeadpanSnarker John Diggle]], [[DeadpanSnarker Oliver]] [[StepfordSnarker Queen]], [[DeadpanSnarker Sara Lance]], [[SnarkKnight Roy Harper]] and [[StepfordSnarker Laurel Lance]]. The series also has [[DeadpanSnarker Quentin Lance]], Slade Wilson (whose character development takes him from DeadpanSnarker to ObnoxiousSnarker), [[StepfordSnarker Thea Queen]], [[GeniusDitz Ray]] [[StepfordSnarker Palmer]] and [[TallDarkAndSnarky Malcolm Merlyn]]. As you might imagine, there is a ''lot'' of SnarkToSnarkCombat.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
%% * ''{{Agnes}}''.
* ''{{Garfield}}''. Mainly the title cat because CatsAreSnarkers, but ButtMonkey Jon (on the strip's early months), DeadpanSnarker Dr. Liz Wilson (during the 1980's) and SilentSnarker Odie (sometimes) have got plenty of it. Special mention goes to [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1994&addr=940818 the bathroom scale]].
%% * ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': Calvin and his father in particular.

* ''Anything'' written by Jean Baptiste Pocquelin aka ''Creator/{{Moliere}}'' oozes snark towards everyone and everything. [[AuthorTract Specially against the clergy, the doctors, and the bourgeois]]. ''Theatre/{{Tartuffe}}'' was [[BannedInChina banned for several years]] because of the REALLY bitter anti-clerical snark.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''EndlessFrontier'' is a more lighthearted example. There's always somebody available to [[LampshadeHanging hang a sarcastic lampshade]] on the absurd levels of {{Fanservice}}, [[LetsYouAndHimFight pointless violence]], and anime/RPG [[ClicheStorm cliches]] present, but they all seem to enjoy living in their crazy little world(s).
* SpiritualSuccessor to ''Endless Frontier'' ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' ''amps up'' the snarking to different characters, some of which who aren't known to snark.
* As one of Creator/{{Bioware}}'s signature staples, suffice to say their games frequently fall into this category.
** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is filled with a good deal of Deadpan Snarkers, particularly party members [[TheLancer Alistair]] and [[BlackMagicianGirl Morrigan]].
** It gets extreme in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', where ''everyone'' is sarcastic, regardless of whatever tropes they fit into. Even [[DaChief Aveline]], [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Merrill]] and [[TroubledButCute Fenris]] get in on the action occasionally. However, they are all overshadowed however by a Hawke with the Sarcastic Personality, who takes the prize as Kirkwall's resident goofball and BunnyEarsLawyer.
** ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Even the brightest Paragon Shepard is going to indulge in enough snark. Their crew members are usually ''worse!'' Taken [[UpToEleven into overdrive]] in the second and third games, where it seems to practically be a requirement for anyone wishing to join the ''Normandy''.
--->'''Kasumi:''' [[spoiler: Trapped in a Reaper.]] Could be worse. Don't know how. ''{{Beat}}'' I guess it could be full of rats.
** 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.
** ''StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', especially the Smuggler (who rides the line between Han Solo and Mal Reynolds of ''Firefly'') and the Sith Inquisitor (who is the Empire's answer to {{Blackadder}}, especially if played lightside)
* ''VideoGame/TheSims''. Maybe not exactly a world full of Deadpan Snarkers, everyone in the thing [[SpeakingSimlish speaks gibberish]], but near everything else is snarky, sarcastic or fuelled by {{schadenfreude}}.
* ''VideoGame/TheSimsMedieval'' is even snarkier than ''VideoGame/TheSims'', original flavour. Active Hero Sims and Royal Advisors, especially, nearly always have something snarky or critical to say.
* In ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'', nearly every major character except the SilentProtagonist gets in one or two snarky lines. And thanks to the emoticon responses, the SilentProtagonist can be played as a SilentSnarker. ''Yes.''
* The world of ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' is very much a WorldOfSnark. This is compounded with the game's [[NoFourthWall lack of a fourth wall]], since the characters will lampshade and snark about video game conventions. The only speaking characters that don't snark are such {{Large Ham}}s that snarking would get in the way.
* ''VideoGame/{{No More Heroes}}'': Travis may not be the only self aware character in the cast and a ton of people love making snarky remarks. The world itself is a massive self aware parody of videogame and anime conventions, just how subtle it is depends on the situation.
* TheKingOfFighters was heading towards this since Day 1, but ''XIII'' firmly cements the trope with all of the pre-fight intros and a good part of the Story Mode dialogues. Comes complete with LampshadeHanging and LeaningOnTheFourthWall, too! It's both [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]].
* ''VideoGame/MarvelHeroes'' has just about every character, playable or not, spitting biting wit at every turn. Even the normally humorless Storm is not immune to the occasional sarcastic observation.
* ''Franchise/TombRaider'': All over the place, particularly from the Core Design era, where the majority of spoken dialogue consists of [[SnarkToSnarkCombat snarky back-and-forth]]. Taken UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness'' where Lara's DialogueTree usually consists of a mean, snarky comment and a mean''er'' snarky comment, with the recipient usually giving as good as they get.

%% * ''Webcomic/BasicInstructions''
%% * ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
%% * ''Webcomic/OutThere''
* The world of ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire'' is rather silly, so every sane character has become a Deadpan Snarker as a coping mechanism.
%% * ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''
%% * ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound''
%% * ''Webcomic/BadMachinery''
%% * ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''
%% * ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive''
%% * ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''
%% * ''WebComic/EightBitTheater''. While most is by Black Mage, due to his disgust to the stupidity of his comrades.
* ''RumorsOfWar'' straddles the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, and its more cynical characters (read: the main cast) are pretty snarky.
* ''{{Homestuck}}''. Even ditzier characters like John and Feferi have their moments of snark, and the snark levels go through the roof when Rose, Dave and Kanaya are involved.
* In ''{{Shiniez}}'' more and more magnificent snarkers have appeared since the start of the second chapter and older characters have been seen holding their own against them in SnarkToSnarkCombat. ''ALL'' the many red headed characters in the strip save for Lisa are talented snarkers.
%% * ''{{Webcomic/Lackadaisy}}''
* ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' gave us this little gem to prove its standing:
-->'''Javert''': He can snark -- he'll be fine.
* The spin-off of ''Roommates'' ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' takes this trope very far, thanks to copious amounts of BelligerentSexualTension and WithFriendsLikeThese. [[Literature/HarryPotter Luna]] is about the only character who ''doesn't'' get in on the act.
%% * HodgesPond.
* Webcomic/{{Paranatural}} has most of the cast made up of snarky teens, plus a few snarky adults.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' site DKVine used to contain the most bitter, sarcastic and unsocial people on the internet, thanks to eleven years of waiting for a new ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' game. The announcement of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns'' helped a lot.
* ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses''. They already review things with as much bile as possible, but take it UpToEleven in a CrossOver given the reviewers start taking shots at each other as well.
* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' is full of people who cope with their CrapsackWorld by snarking about it and each other. The full list of characters who ''don't'' snark at some point is pretty much [[TheCutie Donut]], who's too nice; [[TheDitz Caboose]], who's too stupid; and [[TheStoic the Counselor]], who's too creepy calm.
* ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' abounds with sarcastic articles. They had a photoplasty contest [[http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_77_if-sarcasm-ruled-world/ If Sarcasm Ruled the World]].
* Wiki/RationalWiki, which generally combines this trope with RuleOfFunny.
* Anything by Creator/UrsulaVernon. Written works tend to have a LemonyNarrator, artistic pieces tend to be either AbsurdityAscendant or loaded with {{Funny Background Event}}s, and comics like ''Webcomic/{{Digger}}'' combine the best of both worlds with a snarky cast.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' exists in a world where even enemy secret agents are as likely to engage in SnarkToSnarkCombat as any other kind.
%% * Much of the SilverAge WarnerBros animation.
%% * ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' can be this at times.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', to the point where sarcasm itself is made fun of. "Sarcastaball" goes a step further and has Randy Marsh accidentally invent a sport by sarcastically suggesting it. Everyone involved with it in any way only speaks of it sarcastically, to the point that Randy temporarily loses his ability to speak of anything ''without'' sarcasm.
%%* The DisneyAnimatedCanon:
* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' mostly by Hades, Meg, and Phil (and Cassandra in the series) mocking everything in sight.
%%** ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove''.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' has the main trio snarking at one another every episode.
%% * Teenage superhero team ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''
%% * ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''
%% * Adult superhero team ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes''. ''Avengers'' is particularly notable for having ''Hulk'' be a DeadpanSnarker.
* Everything in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', whether it be human or otherwise, is prone to sarcasm.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. Every one of the gang are snarkers. ''Especially'' Scooby.
* There are few characters in ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers'' that don't get in a line of snark, even if they're one-shot characters. If they ''don't'', they're probably TheVoiceless.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', to the point that most non-snarkers end up being snide by accident.
%% * ''Any'' WesternAnimation based upon Franchise/{{Spiderman}} must be this trope to qualify as a Spidey cartoon.
%%* On ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles'', John, Paul and George are usually snarky to Ringo.
