Added DiffLines:

* In Animator Nancy Beiman's "Animated Performance" book, this expression is briefly mentioned as an example of a cliche expression that should be avoided. It also sets up a gag where a guy making this expression gets hit with a pie in the face to make him don a more specific expression.

* The face has even come into use in EasternAnimation, as seen on [[http://www.armenianow.com/sites/default/files/img/imagecache/600x400/Anahit-cartoon-armenia.jpg this poster]] for the film ''Anahit'', Armenia's first full-length animated feature. The bear beside the title character bears the face.

** The series continues with Judy Hopps making the face in [[http://cdn1-www.comingsoon.net/assets/uploads/gallery/zootopia/zootopiaposter.jpg this poster]] of ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. In the film itself, Nick's default expression is the smug look.
** Maui appears to have a penchant for this in the teaser trailer for ''{{Disney/Moana}}''. Doubles as an ActorAllusion, as the character is voiced by Creator/DwayneJohnson (see his example under "Other").

** In a match made in heaven, Disney animators recruited Johnson's uncanny smirking talents for use in their full length animated film "Moana" [[http://i.imgur.com/Q9ai4UR.jpg]], playing what can only be described as a "perpetually besmirked" protagonist.

** Buzz Lightyear does it in the posters for [[http://www.impawards.com/1995/posters/toy_story_ver1_xlg.jpg all]] [[https://fanart.tv/fanart/movies/863/movieposter/toy-story-2-5275e1f63a9f3.jpg of]] [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/disney/images/5/5b/Toy_Story_3_-_Poster.jpg/revision/20160408160703 the]] ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' films. At least the face is pretty much in-character for him, and he makes it in the actual film. On the poster for ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', Woody and Mr. Potato Head also have the expression.

* A rare literary example is used for a cheap laugh in the end of Fanfic/GarfieldInAlongCameASplut. It's even ''called'' the "Dreamworks attitude expression"!

* Early [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] boxart and title screens had Sonic with notably similar expressions used for the exact same reason as the Dreamworks face (though after [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 the first game]], [[AmericanKirbyIsBadass the American boxart tended to have more attitude]] to the point that some of the japanese boxart didn't even have the face for a while up until [[VideoGame/Sonic3DBlast Sonic 3D Blast]]). This has since become a trademark expression for the hedgehog.
