* ''Series/InTheDark'': This is pretty much Murphy's default mode of speech.

to:

* ''Series/InTheDark'': This is pretty much Murphy's default mode of speech. Murphy's frenemy/co-worker Felix is also pretty snarky and both engage in SnarkToSnarkCombat on a daily basis.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/YearsAndYears'': Most of the Lyons family make snarky remarks, though Muriel has the most. Almost everything she says is sarcastic in fact.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/EerieIndiana'': Marshall is always ready with a sarcastic remark about the paranormal events that occur in Eerie or life in general.

Added DiffLines:

** Yara's sarcasm is so dry you can practically hear it snap. Theon's often her target.
---> '''Yara:''' ''[to Theon]'' You're a great warrior. I saw the bodies above your gates. Which one gave you the tougher fight, the cripple or the six year old?

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/InTheDark'': This is pretty much Murphy's default mode of speech.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/CobraKai'': Demetri has only two modes of communication, whiny and snide. Season two brings him into the territory of deconstruction; while he repeatedly makes accurate and sensible observations and suggestions, he consistently (and occasionally violently) gets shut down by the people around him because he comes across as that much of a dick.

Added DiffLines:

** Euron shows quite the dry wit when mocking Yara and Theon.


* ''Series/{{Shameless}} (US)'': [[TheAlcoholic Frank]] particularly seems to love this:
-->'''Frank:''' (walks in on Ian and Mickey having sex) Hello boys. (the two abruptly stop, [[MomentKiller obviously]]) Front door was locked, so I came in the back. No pun intended.({{Beat}}) You might wanna check the locks.

** And Fiona and Lip as well… hell, even Debbie and Carl too, the entire family is composed of this.
** Mickey Milkovich, specially in the fourth season, during which his screentime gets notably higher.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TreintaYUnMinutos'': Juan Carlos Bodoque is a very notable exemple:
-->'''Juan Carlos Bodoque:''' Do not worry, Tulio. Maybe it reassures you to know that all this is your fault.


* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'': Everyone has shades of this, though Piper is by far the most prominent example. Everything out of her mouth is a snark, despite the fact that in the early seasons, she was portrayed as the quiet one. Piper's actress Creator/HollyMarieCombs has said she found Piper tiring to play because of her snarkiness.

* ''Series/{{Soap}}'': Well, if ''Series/{{Benson}}'' could do it for years, in two different series starting on ''Soap'', then why not Geoffrey too? Benson was the snarky butler side character. On the spin-off, he was the snarky main character.

On the spin-off, he was the snarky main character. The later butler Saunders, while having a more formal personality, was just as snarky as Benson.


* ''Series/{{MASH}}'''s own Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, for whom sarcasm is his primary coping mechanism.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': In "Abduction", Cody Phillips continually makes snarky remarks at the expense of Jason, Ray, Brianna and Danielle after they are abducted by aliens. He later admits that he began acting this way as everyone in school picked on him and he wanted to give them a reason for doing so.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SchittsCreek'': Many of the characters snark on each other, but Stevie Budd's primary purpose seems to be to snark on the Rose family. Additionally, all the Roses snark on each other now and again depending on who is holding the IdiotBall that week. Additionally, David's boyfriend Patrick likes to snark on him, but he does so in an affectionate way.
