* In the ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'' episode "The Headsucker's Moxy", the girls fight "the Robbing Leech" (a pun on Robin Leach) who uses his lamprey mouth to suck knowledge from peoples' brains in order to steal things. He's defeated after he tries this on The Mayor of Townsville, whose brain is a more perfect vacuum than the Leech's.

On film, it's often a makeup technique used to make HumanoidAliens of the [[RubberForeheadAlien rubber forehead variety]] appear more alien by suggesting BizarreAlienBiology through its outward appearance. Such an orifice could also appear on a radically non-humanoid creature. Common in horror, where it may convey EldritchAbomination implications.

Does not cover insect-like mandibles. Often a subtrope of MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily. A common feature of [[SandWorm sandworms]], and an occasional {{Cthulhumanoid}} may sport one. See also NestedMouths.
