Aeris, the pink female cat from , provides the page pic. VG Cats Pantsman is snarky as well, but to a lesser extent.
Quinn from .
"Do you speak English? 'Cause I don't speak retard."
Richard from .
Looking for Group Richard: I'm no physician, but there appears to be a dagger in my chest.
Labor Day in often delivers these types of lines. The first time he did so happened in Holiday Wars episode 34.
Antimony and Reynardine from .
Gunnerkrigg Court Reynardine: Haha! Tired already, child? Antimony: Don't be so cocky. You don't have any lungs.
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.
Stickman from .
Stickman And Cube Zodon from the web- and print-comic .
PS238 Tycho in .
Penny Arcade is a The Order of the Stick World of Snark, so it may takes some times...
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 Varsuvius 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.
Kris from .
Bardsworth 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 Kadeen of gets an honorable mention for snarking while suffering from a massive chest wound.
Knights Errant Nearly all the cast of , but Davan is King Snark.
Something Positive 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.
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 has one in each camp: Ardam for the heroes and Argent for the villains. Though Ardam is usually more "exasperated" than "deadpan".
Adventurers! Jason in . Funnily enough, he is often confused for an Multiplex Author Avatar, which the author denies... to some extent.
Most of the cast of indulges in some snark, but Zib almost Lackadaisy exists to offer his sarcastic take on matters.
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.
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 Half the regular [non-superhero] cast in Head Trip, Lilian especially, plus Chemokid.
A vast majority of the cast of . Most notable are Sarda, Black Mage, Thief, and White Mage.
8-Bit Theater Kei in .
Circumstances Of The Revenant Braves 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."
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.
Nancy in .
Rhapsodies 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 Green in occasionally pulls a The Law Of Purple Deadpan Snarker moment, as does his brother Blue.
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.
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 cast of except for Kia and Mr.Fletcher.
Fletcher Apts 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.
Susan in , natch.
El Goonish Shive K, Liz, Mary, and Lucifer from .
Blip Bunker from .
Sandusky Brent Sienna from .
Pv P Reuben from .
Woods For The Trees Daniel from , which can result in his receiving a smack (or boot) upside the head from his twin sister Jin.
Footloose Zombie of is so deadpan that it can be Hanna Is Not A Boys Name hard to tell whether he's serious or not.
Flint from is very much this.
A Loonatics Tale McCain from has this down to an art. Lucy can be pretty good at this too.
Bittersweet Candy Bowl 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 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.
All of the characters in , but mostly Sherry, Clayton, and James.
Out There 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 Zinger Sharpley from .
Everyday Heroes Hugo the rat from .
Captn Crazy In , Zokusho Comics Max's reaction to having his leg blown off by a suit case bomb? .
Snark. 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 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.
Jean in reflecting the fact that she is The Inexplicable Adventures Of Bob, the Only Sane One in the cast.
Shelly's conscience from is just as sarcastic as it is Wapsi Square creepy.
Rhea from is snark with a tail.
Slightly Damned features a character named Yorick who has yet to have a line that ISN'T dead snarky.
The Word Weary Charlie from has shades of this.
Khaos Komix 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".
Yuudai from is this occasionally, which fits well with his general Sakana Jerkass personality.
Howard from , even when he's facing his worst fears.
Zodiac Blues Art from is like this whenever he isn't busy being a Sequential Art Man Child.
Sheila in within her group of friends. Also Kaige at times.
At Arms Length Alex Williams of can be extremely sarcastic.
Captain SNES Imm from this comic appears to be headed this way.
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...
Roll and Protoman in their coffee breaks for .
Bob and George Lazarus from .
Underling Cassie, Chris and Alan are all snarkers in .
Sunstone 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!
APT Comic has everyone doing it to the point that and word puns are the majority of the humor displayed.
Ferret from Scooter And Ferret.
Carrie, Simon, Vincent and Autumn from Zoophobia.
Mona Montrois in - deadpan snark and French.
C'est la Vie The title character of , as well as a few of the other, less jaded characters.
Matchu In , Life Video Game Guy can break out the snark when it's needed. For example, when discussing Edward's theories about Felicia:
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.
