* Played for laughs at the end of a ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' sketch where DavidMitchell and Robert Webb are plotting out the good and bad sketches of their show, which in turn leads to the two discussing common criticisms of their work.

* LightNovel/{{Durarara}}: Izaya almost always has a devious smirk on his face, to the point that if he doesn't it means either you should ''really'' [[OhCrap worry]], or that one his plans has failed.
* And Saruhiko Fushimi of ''Anime/{{K}}'' (who happens to share [[Creator/JohnnyYongBosch a voice actor]] with the previous two), whenever he comes into contact with "[[FoeYay ... Mi]][[ThenLetMeBeEvil ...sa]][[BerserkButton ...kiiiii]]".

See Also SmugSnake and SmugSuper, for more villainous/heroic versions; that said, this trope doesn't necessarily not involve them. Compare PsychoticSmirk for much the same reaction.

* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', being a [[DemBones skeleton]] and all, sports one of these [[PerpetualSmiler almost constantly]]. Normally it's a lighthearted example to emphasize his laid-back and [[TheGadfly mischievous]] nature, but will take a ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes very]]'' dark turn if you manage to get on his bad side and [[spoiler:manage to kill enough characters to get him to fight you]].
