* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a StepfordSmiler who literally [[PerpetualSmiler never stops smiling]], even if you choose to [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential decapitate his little brother in cold blood]]. It's possible that he's sporting one of these during the entire battle with him, as there's [[spoiler:literally nobody left alive that he cares about at that point]], but he ''definitely'' reaches his breaking point when you [[http://56.media.tumblr.com/d36a25ca2df0afba147d84db1314d11f/tumblr_inline_nzbhubMGfa1tepv7x_250.png deal the killing blow]].

** If you get to the point where you can spare Toriel, the first boss of the game, then [[ISurrenderSuckers kill her anyway]], she sports one of these as she dies.

* Richard Hammond's expression of glee on ''TopGear'' gradually morphs into one of these [[spoiler:when the Reliant Robin Space Shuttle's external fuel tank fails to separate and the assemblage plummets to earth in a gigantic fireball.]]
* Joy (while on happy pills) in ''MyNameIsEarl'', when a neighbor's beer can came through her window & hit one of her kids in the head. Her neighbors won't be doing that again, to say the least.

* Ryoko Asakura of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', if you look closely enough (in the anime, at least) during her fight with Yuki. When Yuki causes her knife to dissolve, she betrays shock and amazement, immediately followed by a leap 5 metres backward. You can see the brief look of shock again when Ryoko has got Yuki seriously injured with those weird tentacle-light thingies and Yuki announces the commencement of Ryoko going bye-bye. Of course, since this is Ryoko we're talking about, she recovers pretty quickly both times with her [[Stepford Smile]], even as she dissolves away the second time.

* A more comical variant happens in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', when [[{{Cloudcukoolander}} Osaka]] manages to convince [[TokenMiniMoe Chiyo]] that [[HugeSchoolgirl Sakaki]] somehow stole her height. Chiyo simply stares at Sakaki, [[BrokenRecord repeatedly saying "You took it, didn't you?"]] with a big grin on her face.
