* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Invoked by your GuardianEntity, the [[DealWithTheDevil demonic]] Arsene, who has a constant grin made of hellish flames plastered across his face. In fact, the highest level of [[CastingAShadow darkness magic]] he uses to kill foes has the same blood red smile of flames inscribed into it.

* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean:'' Right before taking vicious or manipulative action, Captain Jack Sparrow often sports an evil, toothy smile. In the screenplay for Dead Man's Chest, a "Cheshire grin" is mentioned in Jack's direction during a particularly loathsome act of betrayal.

* TJ from ''{{ComicStrip/Luann}}''. Other than the permanent grin, he's actually a pretty regular guy.

* Chimpanzees "smile" by baring their teeth as a way of warning potential challengers that this chimp is not to be messed with. This has led to more than a few people getting mauled, because, hey, the monkey is smiling at 'em! And ain't he just like a little person? Maybe he wants a hug! '''NO.''' When a chimp smiles at you, he's telling you to fuck off. By the way, those teeth? They go for the face. And chimps are ''strong''. [[FluffyTheTerrible Mister Peanutpants]] does not want to be your friend, kids.
** In fact, this is true of many animals, since their teeth are their main weapons. Its meaning is lost for humans because of our greater variety of expressions and because our teeth are puny compared to theirs.

Strangely, it's usually done by heroes who have a ZanyScheme in mind, rather than by villains, who tend to prefer the PsychoticSmirk or the SlasherSmile. Heroes and heroines who are slightly eccentric -- [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} or slightly deranged]] -- favour the Cheshire Cat Grin. If it's an anime, expect a CatSmile instead. Common trait for TheGadFly and serves as a warning that they're going to pull their antics on someone. If this smile is a permanent feature, it's a subtrope of FrozenFace; if it's ''cut into'' the character's face, it's a GlasgowGrin. Shares living space with TheUnSmile. The ImpossibleSmileOfDoom is this trope taken to the extreme. If you ever see someone with the Cheshire Cat Grin in real life, vacate the premises before you can discover what they're smiling about. Or, for that matter, how their face manages to do that.
