I actually had a good Real Life example of someone who is Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Ex-Disney CEO Michael Eisner. Would he qualify?

I don't think so. No context, and it's likely only a coincidence.

I know it has been a while, but you don't think Eisner is a good example? I provided context when I wrote that article.

No, I don't think real people are good examples of this trope, which is about an artistic trait.

We should really rename this "Tall, Snark, and Handsome".

Lots of the examples here fall into the Zero Context Example category. I would like to improve the article myself, but I am not familiar with all those shows. I'd like to encourage you to add a sentence or two about the characters you know and love. I don't want to delete the examples (verging on vandalism) as I'm sure most of them fit the trope but this way the article is not very informative. Thanks.

The Zero Context Examples were commented out. If you want to uncomment them, add proper context. See also this thread in long-term projects.

Image pulls should go through the Image Pickin' forum.

I don't like it either, however, I have not found anything better so far. But I'd like to ask fellow tropers to keep looking. I think something from a comic strip or web comics would be good — in that case readers could understand the snark part of the trope.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
