For trope purposes, this includes fangs, tusks, [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily and an entire jaw of purposely sharpened teeth]]. CuteLittleFangs is the subversion of this. (Except when dealing with SealedEvilInATeddyBear or other tropes for which CuteIsEvil.) May be paired with HornedHumanoid for a demonic look. Related to ScaryTeeth. May also involve {{Phlegmings}}.

(Except when dealing with SealedEvilInATeddyBear or other tropes for which CuteIsEvil.) GoodCounterpart to this trope, but the two can overlap if the writer is trying to invoke CuteIsEvil. May be paired with HornedHumanoid for a demonic look. Related to ScaryTeeth. May also involve {{Phlegmings}}.

You know, fangs. Those pointy things that, whenever they're in the mouth of someone or something, usually [[RedRightHand indicate]] that they're [[DarkIsNotEvil probably]] evil and/or {{Badass}} and probably looking for an excuse to [[HairTriggerTemper bite you with them]]. They're usually paired with FemmeFatalons and PointyEars to create a predatory look, and they're ''[[SpikesOfVillainy pointy]]'' [[EvilIsCool so very...very pointy]]! And really, what's the [[IncrediblyLamePun point]] in having pointy teeth if you don't do stuff with them like rip apart the flesh of the living? [[MundaneUtility Opening beer cans for kicks? Removing the shrink wrap from DVD boxes?]]

* [[TransformersGeneration1 Scourge]] was ''supposed'' to have fangs, if one of the early scripts of TransformersTheMovie is any indication. In some scenes in the Season 3 episode ''The Burden Hardest To Bear", it does look like he has fangs, especially when Broadside is holding him.

* Yigs in ''TheWaterPhoenixKing'' have small fangs that protrude from the lower jaw, but despite this and other traditional Orcish attributes, they aren't any more Evil than humans or other races in this setting.

* Played straight in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' when someone puts on [[ArtifactOfDoom The Mesoamerican Stone Mask]] and splashes it with blood, turning the wearer into a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric monster]].
** Also Mannish Boy, the evil baby in Part 3, has this as a tell-tale sign that he's evil despite being an infant (and ''not'' a vampire).

* ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'': [[PunnyName NOS-4-A2]] and [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting Wirewolf]]. Since they're an energy vampire and robot-devouring werewolf, respectively, this obviously makes some sense.

* Taken to its logical conclusion by Hiruma of ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'': ''All'' of his teeth are fangly, they're visible pretty much any time he opens his mouth (which is often), and when you see them, [[CheshireCatGrin he's definitely being a dangerous trickster.]]

* In ''{{Hellsing}}'', every vampire is shown to have a full mouth of razor-sharp teeth. This trope is often [[CuteLittleFangs subverted]] with Seras, but she later subverts it as well when [[spoiler:she drinks Pip Bernadotte's blood, becoming a full vampire.]]

* In Manga/FullmetalAlchemist, the homunculus Greed, who, for some reason, has shark-like teeth, is an example. [[spoiler:Kinda...while the homunculi are the antagonists for the series, Greed's also the least homicidal of the group and the only one to pull not only a HeelFaceTurn, but also a HeroicSacrifice.]]

* 9th from ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' in her more crazy and villainous moments tends to be draw with fang-looking teeth.
* AxeCrazy {{Shinigami}} Grelle Sutcliffe from BlackButler has a mouth full of [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily shark teeth]]. Just to drive the point home, she reveals them immediately after being caught red-handed [[spoiler: performing the last of the UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper murders.]]

* Played straight and somewhat averted in ''Literature/VoidDomain''. Vampires pretty much single-handedly destroy a whole city. One vampire who isn't quite so bad almost gets killed because of the assumption of this trope.

* In ''WolfsRain'', the wolves' fangs don't mean they're evil (being the main characters, they're portrayed very sympathetically), but it ''certainly'' means they're dangerous. The wolves are realistically drawn, and on top of that, the animators added wolf growls/snarls at the appropriate
