** We also have [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Sableye_anime.jpg Sableye]] from Gen III, but it's generally hard to smile pleasantly when you have a mouthful of sharp teeth.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', Midna makes quite a few of these (in her imp form). Especially whenever she hits a turning point in her quest to overthrow Zant.

* Tohsaka in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' is described as being scariest when she's smiling, because then you ''know'' she is going to get you. Nobody else is ever happy when she smiles.
** That's nothing. Sakura's can silence a room and ''extinguish candles''. [[spoiler:It makes sense. They are sisters, after all.]]

* Taokaka of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' typically makes this face whenever she wants to [[UnusualEuphemism "play"]] or she's about to attack some poor fool. This being a game that centers on, y'know, ''fighting'', she keeps the expression some 90% of the time.

Added DiffLines:

* Seijirou from ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion''. A deadbeat father and ConsumateLiar, this is practically his default expression to emphasize how unsettling he is, and it's the first clear sign to the audience that he's up to no good when he's first introduced as he's meeting up with his daughters several years after abandoning them for his new wife.

* Muttley will usually do this to the camera [[WesternAnimation/WackyRaces on the two shows]] [[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines in which he stars]] after he snickers, followed by a Groucho eyebrow waggle.

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

** [[ActionBomb Electrode]] along with Gengar and its relatives, Haunter and Gastly, tootoo.
** Gengar's smile isn't quite so permanent in the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games. A [[spoiler:formerly human]] Gengar shows not only a Cheshire Cat Grin and SlasherSmile; he frowns quite a bit as well, and even ''[[TearJerker tears up]]'' [[spoiler:by the time Gardevoir's body is restored.]]



** We also have [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Sableye_anime.jpg Sableye]] from Gen III, but it's generally hard to smile pleasantly when you have a mouthful of sharp teeth.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'', [[PlayerCharacter Wes]] sports one of these when he's [[HeelFaceTurn blowing up Team Snagem's base]] at the start of the game and whenever he's riding his CoolBike.



* Gengar from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is almost constantly making a Cheshire Cat Grin. In the handheld games from Red and Blue all the way to Platinum, ''every single one of his sprites'' is doing it.
** Not quite so in the first ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' [[SpinoffSeries games]]. A [[spoiler:formerly human]] Gengar shows not only a Cheshire Cat Grin and SlasherSmile; he frowns quite a bit as well, and even ''[[TearJerker tears up]]'' [[spoiler:by the time Gardevoir's body is restored.]]
