* When [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]] smiles, which happens ''very'' rarely, it tends to be this. He's quite self-possessed.

* Alucard from ''{{Hellsing}}'' almost always has this, so much so that it's hard to distinguish this from his SlasherSmile.

* [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel's]] {{Thanos}} of Titan combines the PsychoticSmirk with the GlowingEyesOfDoom (which occasionally has a smoking effect for the extra panache).

* The ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' villain Kid Twist has one as he guns down the Street Arabs. Given that he is a 1900's expy of the above-mentioned Bullseye, this is probably to be expected.

* Gendo Ikari from ''Series/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' smiles like this whenever something falls into place in his plans, although he usually camouflages it by leaning forward on his desk with his hands folded in front of his face. At most other times, his face is carefully held to an emotionless deadpan -- when he smiles ''openly'', it's never good news for anyone but him.

* WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}:
** BigBad [[MeaningfulName Cinder]] [[PlayingWithFire Fall]] ''loves'' this trope.
** One of her accomplices, Mercury Black also likes this trope, [[spoiler: especially while Ruby's in shock over Penny's death.]]
** [[CuteAndPsycho Neo]] also gives one after handing Yang a CurbStompBattle.



* [[{{Transformers}} Megatron and Starscream]], in whichever series they feature in, often sport this expression when a plan is going well.

* [[FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi Ami]], like her canon counterpart, is as about a nice a girl as you can get. But occasionally she'll have a really 'good' science related idea or figure out how to get back at a villain in the perfect way. Then a very disturbing smile appears on her face, and it really doesn't help that her eyes glow [[spoiler: red]]

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Shinji displays a very unsettling smirk after telling Misato a not-false-but-not-quite-true-either tale about his canopic jars.
-->When she was safely out of view, Shinji let a snake-like smirk cross his face.



* Emperor Palpatine from ''StarWars'' does this quite a bit, one of the most notable examples would be when he was chuckling to himself behind Vader's back during the latter's infamous BigNo.

** Befitting it's nature, the Ace Attorney series provides a lot of these. Notable examples include [[spoiler:Damon Gant]] in the first game, [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] in the second, [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]] in Apollo Justice, and [[spoiler:Shi-Na/Calisto Yew]] in Investigations. Investigations 2 takes the PsychoticSmirk UpToEleven with [[spoiler:Horace Knightley, Sirhan Dogen, Dane Gustavia, Blaise DeBeste, and Simon Keys]] all making frequent use of one.
