Hobbes: Yes, you've certainly been the model of self-restraint and understatement up until now.
Calvin: Well, no more. (beat, as he turns to glare at Hobbes) And I've also resolved not to put up with sarcastic tigers.
Hobbes: If I see any, I'll tell 'em.
- Both Luna and Artemis from Sailor Moon are masters of snark, especially when dealing with their respective less-than-devoted protégés.
- Yoruichi from Bleach is quite sarcastic in her cat form... and her human form. Let's just call her a Deadpan Snarker in general.
- Pokémon: Meowth, of course.
- Koneko Toujou from High School DXD. She is a Cat Girl, and most of her sarcastic remarks tend to go towards Issei Hyodo, whom she at first disliked, but later warmed up to and ultimately fell in love with.
- Carla from Fairy Tail. Happy can also be a smartass, usually toward Lucy, but it's usually not as much snark as giggling mockery.
- While the title character from Kimba the White Lion is an Ideal Hero, he occasionally says a snarky line when he's talking with his enemies.
Bella Dona: Now tell me, Kimba: What happened to that turtle?! If you don't tell me where that turtle is, I'm going to... I'm going to...
Kimba: You're going to be punished by Tonga for letting him escape? (smiles)
- Toyed with in the "Nekotalia" strips of Axis Powers Hetalia. There are all kinds of cats there, but the only one who really fits in is Tama a.k.a. Japaneko... and that's when he's not ranting about tuna.
- Mao from Darker Than Black. Mostly because he misses being human.
- A lot of the cats in Cat Paradise are like this, including the main character's cat, Kansuke. Kaen is just plain mean, though.
- A Cruel God Reigns: Nadia's cat, Octavian.
- Amanojaku from Ghost Stories is the snarkiest character on the show.
- Sakamoto of Nichijou displays traits of this after the professor makes him a scarf that allows him to talk.
- Meow of Space Dandy, though he constantly reminds Dandy he is NOT a cat, but a Beetlejucian.
- Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch in several adaptations. It should be noted that in those adaptions, Salem was originally a warlock who tried to take over the world and was turned into a cat as punishment. In the original comic, he was just Sabrina's pet cat who occasionally had magical powers.
- Hairball from Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers.
- John Blacksad, in tandem with his Film Noir Private Detective persona.
- Katten Jansson ("Katten" means "The Cat") from the Swedish comic Bamse is a small black-and-white cat (and one of few non-anthro animals in the series) whose best friend is an equally-snarky mouse. They switch between snarking at each other and teaming up to snark at the world in general.
- Rusty Duncan from Sunnyville Stories is always ready to make jokes and witty replies.
- The cat from The Rabbi's Cat is an atheist and mocks the Rabbi for believing in anachronistic unscientific and allegorical stories as literal truth and yet wants to convert to Judaism and have a Bar Mitzvah in order to be able to associate with the rabbi's daughter. He also convinces the Rabbi's master who takes the religion more seriously still that he is god, and has come as a test, that obviously he isn't a cat because cats can't talk. Then when the man is kneeling and weeping, he says "no, I was just messing with you, I'm just a talking cat."
- Garfield, of course.
Jon: You know Garfield, I get the feeling you're a cat with a little cynic in you.
Garfield: That's not true! I'm a cynic with a little cat around me.
- Hobbes the imaginary and/or covertly-real (depending on how you interpret him) tiger from Calvin and Hobbes is arguably the most frequent Deadpan Snarker in the series. (Interestingly enough, author Bill Watterson claimed his pet cat partly inspired the portrayal of Hobbes, but he didn't specify whether or not this included the snarky personality.)
Calvin: "Live for the moment" is my motto. You never know how long you've got! You could step into the road tomorrow, and wham, you get hit by a cement truck! Then you'd be sorry you put off your pleasures! That's why I say "live for the moment." What's your motto?
Hobbes: "Look down the road."
- Bucky from Get Fuzzy who, like Garfield, has a sidekick who exemplifies Dogs are Dumb.
- Palmtop in Safe Havens has more or less settled into this role.
- Light's Familiar Cleo from No Hoper:
Light: You know what? I'm going to name you.
Cleo: "Name me"? What do I need a name for? I am the best, how can anyone not know who I am? And you, what do you need a name for? You are so recognisable, you are unforgettable!
Light: And what's that supposed to mean?
Cleo: Nothing. I just think names are stupid. All you need to know is that you are a can-opener, and I am the Great-I-Am!
Light: Well, you deserve a name, you know, one that doesn't invoke cries of "blasphemy".
- Jiji in the English dub of Kiki's Delivery Service.
- Scar from The Lion King:
Simba: I'm gonna be king of Pride Rock!
Scar: Oh goody.
Simba: My dad just showed me the whole kingdom! And I'm gonna rule it all!
Scar: Yes. Well, forgive me for not leaping for joy, bad back you know.
Simba: Hey uncle Scar! When I'm king, what'll that make you?
Scar: A monkey's uncle.
- Mittens, from Bolt, is the character in the page image.
- The Jungle Book
- Bagheera the panther is also a big-time snarker.
Baloo: Oh, stop worrying, Baggy, stop worrying, I'll take care of him!
Bagheera: Yes, like you did when the monkeys kidnapped him, did you?
- As is Shere Khan.
- Bagheera the panther is also a big-time snarker.
- The cat from Coraline fits this trope in both the film and the book.
- Diego from Ice Age. He is voiced by Denis Leary.
- Cat R. Waul and Miss Kitty from An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
- Pangur Ban from The Secret of Kells never speaks, but her expressions speak volumes.
- Francis and Bluebeard in Felidae.
- Master Tigress from Kung Fu Panda. Maybe. She's quiet and reserved and bottles up her resentment but is only questionably a snarker.
- Maurice, from The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.
- Mogget from the Old Kingdom trilogy. Although he's actually a spirit bound into a cat form. The author may have chosen that form for him because of the trope.
- The cat in Coraline.
- Morwen's cats, from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, are practically an entire brigade of snarker cats. Morwen even notes that it's a good thing witches can only hear their own cats' comments.
- The stray kitchen cat from The Last Unicorn.
- Thomas the cat in Reserved for the Cat. He's a victim of an Involuntary Transformation, but there seems to be a certain psychological Morphic Resonance.
- Quite a few characters from Warrior Cats.
- The cat that lives with Nathan Ridgeway from Old Nathan.
- Tualha from the Young Wizards series. Right up to and including snarking in the Lone Power's face.
- The Tortall Universe has Faithful in the Song of the Lioness quartet. He was just as snarky to Beka in Provost's Dog.
- Tybalt, who is often referred to "King of Cats", in the October Daye series. He is usually witty and snarky towards Toby.
- Edgewood Dirk of Magic Kingdom of Landover.
- Khat ("There is nothing romantic about good spelling.") from Midnite.
- Harry Potter:
- McGonagall from is pretty snarky when she's speaking to people she doesn't like. Her animagus form is a cat.
- Hermione's pet cat, Crookshanks, counts as well.
- Austin from Tanya Huff's Keepers Chronicles series
- Humphrey the Downing Street Cat, as portrayed in the BBC Radio 4 series Political Animals, elaborately takes the piss out of his famous human owners.
- The title character of 1996 science fiction comedy series Seymour The Fractal Cat is pretty snarky, though he could have picked it up from any of the show's other major snarkers: his two previous owners and the computer that granted him sentience.
- Sissel from Ghost Trick is certainly a snarker, though even he doesn't find out he's a cat until the very end of the game.
- Sulpher, from Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis, isn't the Mana of Snark, but only because he's actually an ordinary house cat.
- The Cheshire Cat from American McGee's Alice personifies the snarkishness, although "Snark" in that game has a quite different meaning.
- Krosp in Girl Genius. Also a Snarky Non-Human Sidekick.
- Charlene and Leonard in Horndog.
- Grape Jelly Sandwich, and to a lesser extent Maxwell in Housepets!.
- Spark of Dominic Deegan mostly prefers to make lame puns.
- Vanex from Zoophobia.
- Percy the cat from Sinfest is quite snarky too. Naturally, she's paired with an idiotic dog.
- Sylvester, from this YouTube video.
- This is a frequent theme◊ with LOLCats.
- Tard the Grumpy Cat, source of many a sarcastic Image Macro. Even better, she just naturally looks that way all the time in Real Life.
- Sad Cat Diary has cats writing entries into their diaries of things they consider tragic, with such entries stating how their food is a little less full, how the authorities wouldn't open the door to the garden, or how the authorities had removed the black pants. Contrasted with Sad Dog Diary, which has entries that call the dogs' owners "Dearest Human" and lament that they don't know if "Dearest Human" cleans their genitals or knows how to poop. Also, while they trust their cat friends, the cats are assholes to the dogs.
- Salem (again!), this time from Sabrina: The Animated Series.
- Garfield (again!), in Garfield and Friends — Lorenzo Music's deadpan delivery is what sells it.
- Cat from Little Bear.
- Azrael in The Smurfs, though he snarks in meows.
- Socrates from Adventures from the Book of Virtues.
- Fluffy Lopart from Handy Manny is a non-talking example.
- Another non-talking example would be Opalescence from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. The timing of her meows and facial expressions combined give off this trope's feel. This applies especially well to "Sweet and Elite", where Rarity keeps talking to Opal about various things and Opal almost constantly responds in a Silent Snarker type way. Also the time that Sweetie Belle wonders aloud if she could be good with animals; Opal slices off part of her mane with Audible Sharpness and smirks as if to say "Lol, U mad?"
- Rita of Animaniacs.
- Custard from the 2003 Strawberry Shortcake version
- Spongebob Squarepants's pet snail, Gary, who is analogous to a cat.
- Dodsworth was a very short-lived Warner Bros. character, appearing in only two shorts. He was a lazy, obese cat with Sheldon Leonard furnishing his snarks. As he allows an army of mice to steal food past him: "One 'o these days, I'm gonna have to get a mousetrap."
- Hanna-Barbera's Top Cat
