* In ''Film/{{Oldboy}},'' our hero spends 14 years alone in a cell that features a mirror marked with the message "Smile, and the world smiles with you." He practices a smile in the mirror through the years, without any hope or contact with another person, and it becomes quite unsettling. When he's finally released on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge, he has occasions to show off his slasher smile while doing pretty horrible things.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', the [[spoiler:Thirteenth]] Shadow of the [[spoiler:Death]] Arcana ([[spoiler: [[TheGrimReaper Nyx Avatar]]]]) sports a mask which is nothing but a pair of hollows for eyes and an immense grinning mouth; this is in contrast to other Major Arcana Shadows, whose masks are either inhuman or emotionless. Ironically, it spends most of the fight speaking in a [[TragicMonster defeated-sounding]] monotone.
** [[CanonName Makoto]] himself gets a pretty nasty smile the first time he summons his persona, which isn't helped by the [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything gruesome summoning method]].
** The real killer in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', [[spoiler:Adachi]], sports one of these when chased into the TV world. He gets a new one in [[UpdatedRerelease The Golden]] [[spoiler:if you complete his social link and become his accomplice.]]
* For the main ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTensei'' games, the cover for ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has [[AntiHero Walter]] sporting one of these.

** The protagonists of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' all get one the first time they summon their [[FightingSpirit Persona]]. The [[Anime/Persona3TheMovie film adaptation]] of ''Persona 3'' makes it even more prominent... and the gruesome summoning method of ''shooting himself in the head'' makes it particularly striking in both the game and movie.

* Series/{{Angel}} gives us Dana, whom Spike goes after her, thinking she's a demon, and when cornered suggests having a talk about mistreating young girls and [[GameFace vamps out.]] Dana may well like to talk about mistreating little girls given her backstory, but turns out she's a Slayer, so when Spike does this her reaction is basically, "Score."
