The one on the right.
has one in each camp: Ardam for the heroes and Argent for the villains. Though Ardam is usually more "exasperated" than "deadpan".
Adventurers! Flint from is very much this.
A Loonatic's Tale Any character in who isn't a) Doctor Nefarious b) ice-powered guy still looking for a name c) Baron Diamond. And they have their moments.
Antihero for Hire APT Comic has everyone doing it to the point that and word puns are the majority of the humor displayed.
Sheila in within her group of friends. Also Kaige at times.
At Arm's Length Kris from .
Bardsworth McCain from has this down to an art. Lucy can be pretty good at this too.
Bittersweet Candy Bowl Roll and Protoman in their coffee breaks for .
Bob and George K, Liz, Mary, and Lucifer from .
Blip Alex Williams of can be extremely sarcastic.
Captain SNES Hugo the rat from .
Captn Crazy Mona Montrois in - deadpan snark and French.
C'est la Vie Kei in .
Circumstances Of The Revenant Braves Gigi is this constantly in her author notes for .
Cucumber Quest Also Peridot, Almond, what little we've seen of Saturday, the two cake ladies, Saturday's butler...
...The Nightmare Knight...
Ha-Hyeon from .
Divine Bells Hong-Ryeong and No-Woo also have their moments.
A vast majority of the cast of . Most notable are Sarda, Black Mage, Thief, and White Mage.
8-Bit Theater Susan in , natch.
El Goonish Shive Zinger Sharpley from .
Everyday Heroes gives us Prince Tramennis and, to a lesser extent, Foolamancer Jack Snipe. Justified in Jack's case. He's a Foolamancer. It's his job to see the world as it is so that he can manipulate it. Prince Tramennis is just balancing out the rest of his family.
Erfworld Every main and supporting character in both Michael Poe's have their moments of this, but the males seem especially prone to it. Jon and Ellis probably have a Snark/Strip ratio of 2:1.
Errant Story Mel from is prone to lots and lots of sarcastic commentary. Her Explorers of Souls Establishing Character Moment is the utterance of "Oh, bloody hell." once she sees she has become a Pokemon.
Plenty of snark in . Earliest example:
Exterminatus Now Harold Eastwood: (on Virus smoking in his intro page) You mean it was a lame attempt to look badass. Syrus "The Virus" Zuviel: Did it work? Eastwood: No, you just looked like a regular ass. Virus: Ha. And indeed, ha. Don't quit your day job Harry.
Most of the cast of except for Kia and Mr.Fletcher.
Fletcher Apts Daniel from , which can result in his receiving a smack (or boot) upside the head from his twin sister Jin.
Footloose It's fair to say that is another Girl Genius World of Snark.
Agatha:(as she and Gil are plummeting) Oh, it's a falling machine. I'm so impressed.
Wooster gets in his digs, too. Though as he's British that comes with the territory.
Carson von Mekkhan seems to have this as his default setting.
Dr. Sun is infamous for his " sun-ny bedside manner."
Antimony and Reynardine from .
Gunnerkrigg Court Reynardine: Haha! Tired already, child? Antimony: Don't be so cocky. You don't have any lungs.
Zombie of is so deadpan that it can be Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name hard to tell whether he's serious or not.
Half the regular [non-superhero] cast in Head Trip, Lilian especially, plus Chemokid.
Labor Day in often delivers these types of lines. The first time he did so happened in Holiday Wars episode 34.
So, so, so many examples from . Just within the main characters, Dave, Rose, and occasionally John all qualify, and beyond that, practically half the cast qualifies. There's a reason the verbal competition between Kanaya and Rose is measured by the "Flighty Broads and their Snarky Horseshit-o-Meter." And that said "Horseshit-o-Meter" Homestuck explodes.
It simply cannot take this much horseshit.
Jean in reflecting the fact that she is The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!, the Only Sane One in the cast.
Charlie from has shades of this.
Khaos Komix Kadeen of gets an honorable mention for snarking while suffering from a massive chest wound.
Knights Errant In , Dick is this, such as when Mary and Adriana are treating a horrible childhood event for their Knights Of Buena Vista Player Characters with an Angst? What Angst? attitude.
Most of the cast of indulges in some snark, but Zib almost Lackadaisy exists to offer his sarcastic take on matters.
Worf in , unsurprisingly enough.
Larp Trek Green in occasionally pulls a The Law of Purple Deadpan Snarker moment, as does his brother Blue.
Rayne of goes so far over the top with the Least I Could Do Idiot Hero and Handsome Lech routines that most of the rest of the cast are divided into those who can use deadpan snarking to survive his bombastic ways (Issa and Noel), and those who turn into his punching bags (Jon and Mick). Noel is probably the best example.
has a couple examples:
Life VGG: You're being awful observant. Edward: I'm just sharp like that, I guess. VGG: Absolutely. It took you a month to notice one thing.
Richard from .
Looking for Group Richard: I'm no physician, but there appears to be a dagger in my chest.
Pato from . She is usually the M9 Girls! Only Sane Man of the group, so she is fond of doing snarky remarks on the other girls' decisions.
The title character of , as well as a few of the other, less jaded characters.
Matchu Jason in . Funnily enough, he is often confused for an Multiplex Author Avatar, which the author denies... to some extent.
Marius from .
My Life In Blue While Artax tries it occasionally...
Yeager: Contrary to... most of my dating history, not every woman who's interested in me is a flesh-craving abomination. Artax: Really? Have you been seeing someone we don't know about?
... Nodwick does it more or less nonstop.
Artax: She Who Must Not Be Named has taken That Which Man Was Not Meant To Know! Nodwick: Did she say where She Who went? Artax: To The Lands Which Know No Name! Nodwick: Uh-huh... let me know if we find any proper nouns in all this mess.
is a The Order of the Stick World of Snark, so this may take some time...
Roy Greenhilt has his snarkiness being his primary character flaw — according to the beings of pure law and good that judge him in the afterlife, anyway. Since he is Lawful Good, that's a flaw.
Among the supporting roles, Vaarsuvius plays this role often. Being The Spock, V is certainly the most deadpan of all.
Belkar, post-fake Character Development.
Crystal: Arrgh! You little twit, I'm gonna kill you! Belkar: Yeah, and I'm going to drop a house on you and sing about how I represent the Lollipop Guild. C'mon, let's keep our threats realistic, shall we?
On the evil side, this role is usually taken by Redcloak, who is often paired up with over-the-top cliched bad guy Xykon or the adorably naive Monster in the Darkness.
Redcloak: I'm on my way to finish zombifying the monsters we killed up in the tower. MitD: Yeah, I can help with that. Redcloak: Really? So, I guess those three boxes of mallomars you finished off somehow earned you enough XP to gain 5 levels in cleric overnight. MitD: Well, they were especially chewy.... Redcloak: Then unless you are volunteering your services as raw materials, I don't think you are going to be much help.
Half of the named characters get a crowning moment of snark or two, and some unnamed. Bonus points to Spoony Bard Elan, who's not particularly bright most of the time, doubles as his Crowning Moment Of Awesome when he pulls a
What the Hell, Hero? moment on Vaarsuvius when he/she killed a minor villain purely because he/she was impatient that the plot wasn't moving fast enough for his/her taste. Vaarsuvius: Your swift progress with illusions is overshadowed only by your long-overdue grasp of the basics of sarcasm.
All of the characters in , but mostly Sherry, Clayton, and James.
Out There Ozy of , being Ozy and Millie The Stoic, manages to be so deadpan that his targets often don't even realize he's being snarky. A prominent case of this came when Avery declared himself to be a "bad boy".
Tycho in .
Penny Arcade The On-Cue Ball from is an oracle! ...Or, very possibly, prerecorded snark.
'''"I'm sorry, I wasn't paying atten—I MEAN REPLY HAZY, TRY AGAIN!"
Brent Sienna from .
PvP Zodon from the web- and print-comic .
PS238 Faye (and others) in . Early in the comic's run, Faye and Martin got their new apartment because the landlady liked their snarkiness.
Questionable Content Nancy in .
Rhapsodies Mr. Snippy in .
Romantically Apocalyptic Captain: (in front of a computer with a destroyed monitor) Hello computer... I'd like one free internet please. Maybe if I twiddle these wires... Mr. Snippy: You are an idiot. Captain: What? No... Why? Mr. Snippy: (holding up a cell phone with a destroyed screen) To illustrate, I shall take a photo of your epic failure with my phone.
In , every member of the main cast gets a turn at deadpan snarking, even RPG World the dim-witted Hero. Cherry, Eikre, and Reka are the most frequent offenders.
Most of the main cast of , and a good chunk of the periphery characters are snarky — possibly to the point of creating a veritable Rumors of War World of Snark.
Yuudai from is this occasionally, which fits well with his general Sakana Jerkass personality.
Bunker from .
Sandusky Ferret from Scooter And Ferret.
Quinn from is a particularly caustic one.
Shotgun Shuffle Quinn: Do you speak English? 'Cause I don't speak retard.
Art from is like this whenever he isn't busy being a Sequential Art Man Child.
Rhea from is snark with a tail.
Slightly Damned Nearly all the cast of , but Davan is King Snark.
Something Positive Stickman from .
Stickman and Cube Ruby, in , has a bumpy start as a snarker, being too neurotic to manage the deadpan well and living in a fairly snark-light comic. However, by Sticky Dilly Buns this strip it seems that she's beginning to develop the skill. The male disguise may help her relax enough, but mostly it's the golden opportunities that she's offered; the comic may turn out to be about the creation of a competent snarker.
Cassie, Chris and Alan are all snarkers in .
Sunstone Also many people in another of the author's comics, . Come to think of it, perhaps every character R. K. Milholland creates. And thus, probably Milholland himself, as well.
Super Stupor Androssi Zahard from . That paired with her arrogant narcissism and Tower of God Jerkass With A Heart Of Gold attitude have made her somewhat of a fan-favourite.
Bert and Darby from are the most consistently snarky among the toy store staff, but almost everyone working there gets a moment. It must be a survival technique for dealing with the customers.
TRU-Life Adventures Gracelis in .
Trying Human Quazky: The master love machine has taken him (Hue) under his wing! Gracelis: You mean EBE1? (blows smoke in Quazky's face while maintaining a completely serious expression) Quazky: NO! ME!
: Most of the cast.
Typical Strange Lazarus from .
Underling Dewey from .
Unshelved Mell: People don't like it when you're right all the time. Dewey: If being right is wrong, I don't want to be right. Nah, I still want to be right.
Aeris, the pink female cat from , provides the page pic. VG Cats Pantsman is snarky as well, but to a lesser extent.
Shelly's conscience from is just as sarcastic as it is Wapsi Square creepy.
Reuben from .
Woods For The Trees features a character named Yorick who has yet to have a line that ISN'T dead snarky.
The Word Weary Jason Grey in (and The Wotch Sonja as well).
Anne, even your personified sarcasm is no match for me. I've been constanty sarcastic for 15 years.
Howard from , even when he's facing his worst fears.
Zodiac Blues In , Zokusho Comics Max's reaction to having his leg blown off by a suit case bomb? .
Snark. Carrie, Simon, Vincent and Autumn from Zoophobia.
Imm from this comic appears to be headed this way.
