* ''Series/RedDwarf''. In "Psirens", the eponymous MonsterOfTheWeek is an EnthrallingSiren that appears to Lister as a LustObject. As Lister snogs the girl of his adolescent fantasies, the audience is given a FanDisservice view of what's ''really'' happening -- Lister sucking face with a bug-like alien and getting slime all over his face (according to WordOfGod they used [[OffTheShelfFX agricultural jelly for inseminating cows]]).

* [[Series/GameOfThrones Khal Drogo]]'s RousingSpeech where he declares he will [[spoiler: invade the Seven Kingdoms in retaliation for Daenarys' near assassination]] is accompanied by a lot of spitting. Given that he is one of the most badass and barbaric characters in the series, it seems totally in-character for him. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyqKWROjrq4 Watch it here.]]

This occurs because drooling and oral messiness tends to invoke a {{Squick}} response in many people, making phlegmings a convenient visual shortcut for invoking PrimalFear. For instance, it may show anticipation of a good meal (''e.g.,'' the heroes/villains) in predator characters. Or it may be a sign of disease, like rabies.
