'''Basic Trope''': A character given to wry, sarcastic, or excessively dry humor, usually in the form of snide commentary or an occasional aside.
* '''Straight''': Alice, Brave Bob's loyal girlfriend, continually makes witty and ironic comments on what he does, using gentle and usually affectionate sarcasm.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice speaks only in snarky commentary on Bob, on the universe, on passing cars, on what she had for breakfast that morning...
** [[WorldOfSnark Everyone is sarcastic and snarky]]... [[SilentSnarker even those who can't or won't speak]]!
* '''Downplayed''':
** Alice's dry remarks are few and far between.
** Alice only snarks at people who are [[SnarkToSnarkCombat willing to snark back at her]].
* '''Justified''': Alice has a very dry wit, and [[IdiotHero Bob's moronic antics]] give her plenty of opportunities to display it.
* '''Inverted''':
** Alice is SarcasmBlind.
** Alice CannotConveySarcasm.
* '''Subverted''': Alice makes a witty comment... then can't keep from laughing at her own joke.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** She was actually laughing at someone else.
** [[HaHaHaNo Alice's raucous laughter ends up being another piece of sarcasm as well]].
* '''Parodied''': The character sprays acerbic wit all over everything - we do mean everything - and everyone ''loves'' it because it's funny.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes they snark, sometimes they don't.
* '''Averted''': Characters mean what they say most of the time.
* '''Enforced''':
** "This is a show [[SurroundedByIdiots full of idiots]], [[OnlySaneMan and one smart, annoyed person]]".
** "This character's kind of a jerk, so let's reinforce that image".
** "...This is a show about making fun of people. Apparently, you were expecting ''Series/SesameStreet''".
* '''Lampshaded''': "[[HypocriticalHumor Ooh, yay. Another dipshit that thinks he's Mike]] and this is ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''."
* '''Invoked''': "I want to be the sort of person who always has something witty to say".
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': "I should be sincere so people don't think I'm a {{Jerkass}}".
* '''Discussed''': "Alice always has something snarky to say".
* '''Conversed''': "There's always someone on a show like that to snark at the antics of [[SurroundedByIdiots everyone around her]]".
* '''Deconstructed''':
** The snarker being an asshole drives everyone else away from them, and they feel the burn.
** OffingTheMouth.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** They don't care that they're driving everyone away, or thrive on it.
** The snarker is a KnightInSourArmor; their fundamental decency keeps their friendships intact despite the barbed quips.
** Others learn from the guy [[OffingTheMouth who got killed for his snark]], and learn to be more subtle about it, or realize when it's appropriate or inappropriate to be snarky.
* '''Played For Drama''': [[StepfordSnarker Alice is hiding a deep inner hurt]], and uses sarcasm because she's afraid to get close to people after her grandmother died.
