Taking disregard for the old saying [[RunsWithScissors "Don't run with scissors"]] to a whole new level, the Cutlass Between the Teeth is the tendency for particularly {{Badass}} characters to run around with the handle (or blade, if they're feeling really tough) of a sword or knife clenched between their teeth. Can have its uses--at most earning a free hand--but its true purpose is to make the character doing it [[RuleOfCool look even cooler]]. One would think you'd only attempt this on something with a blade with an edge on just ''one'' side…

Obviously not TruthInTelevision. As you can imagine, biting down on a hard and thin piece of metal is not very comfortable on your teeth. Not to mention you'd have to worry about dropping the damn thing while running and jumping around in combat. Oh, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and]] [[GlasgowGrin slicing the edges of your mouth]] comes to mind, too.

* Dementia D'Rose often carries a big shiny knife around, usually having it between her teeth during her entrance. She treats it more like a fashion accessory than a weapon and has [[SwordPlant thrown it in the ground]] when [[ThrowingDownTheGauntlet challenging people to fights]]]...and [[OralFixationFixation then puts it back in her mouth]] afterwards.[[/folder]]

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', Nagisa does this with a combat knife while he limbers up before facing [[spoiler:Takaoka]]. It's become one of his trademark poses, both within the show's art and fan art.



* In ''WesternAnimetion/RenAndStimpy'', when the titular characters are Fire Dogs in the episode of the same name, an incredibly obese woman does this not to a sword but to Ren, to climb or rather slide down a fire-truck ladder from a high skyscraper window.

* In ''{{Tsukihime}}'', Shiki does it during Ciel's route. The writer probably didn't do this to try to be cool; Shiki probably realizes that doing that is completely impractical and just plain dumb. However, [[spoiler: since he lost both his arms and the situation really called for him to do something, it was do it or die.]]
