* In ''Film/LethalWeapon4'', Riggs climbs up ropes onto a smugglers' ship with his ''pistol'' held between his teeth.
* In ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' [[CoolHorse Maximus]] takes this to the next level by fighting Flynn with a sword held thusly (given that he [[JustifiedTrope had nothing resembling thumbs]] he could not hold it otherwise) and giving a better account than all of the human guards put together.
* ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'': Arrow when delivering Smollett's sword, because his hands are occupied by his own weapon and the rope he's swinging out with.

* Buck from ''WesternAnimation/IceAge3'' carries his carnosaur-tooth knife in his mouth occasionally. Granted, weasels are probably more used to carrying things by mouth than humans are.

* 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]]

* From 1976-96, the helmet logo of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a red-and-orange pirate with a dagger between his teeth. (Not to mention a ''really fabulous'' [[TheCavalierYears cavalier's]] hat with a [[FluffyFashionFeathers big feather]], a dashing [[PornStache pencil mustache]] and a big gold earring. What was their win-loss record during those years again?)[[note]][[DontExplainTheJoke It was 100 wins, 223 losses, 1 tie.]][[/note]]
