* In ''Literature/TheFifthSeason'', the Stone Eaters are (occasionally) human-shaped creatures of living stone whose imitations of humanity usually fall straight into the UncannyValley. When they bare their teeth, it's as a threat display to each other, enhanced by the fact that their teeth are diamonds.

** The Guardians are EmpoweredBadassNormal {{Mage Killer}}s implanted with a shard of [[spoiler:the [[GaiasVengeance Evil Earth's core]], who have a habit of smiling simply because it releases endorphins that ease the constant grinding pain of what's been done to them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', the nascent HumanoidAbomination [[spoiler:Padan Fain]] is often described as baring his teeth at people, both because he's usually trying to threaten them and because SanitySlippage from [[spoiler:being {{Mind Rape}}d by the GodOfEvil and then {{fus|ionDance}}ing with a ghost of pure HatePlague]] has left him with very little awareness of normal human behaviour.

** ''Technically'' almost many canines can "smile" to some degree. What most can't do produce a "friendly" looking gesture with their teeth close together. Canines have little incentive to open their mouth and not open their teeth as well since constant panting is usually necessary for regulating body temperature.

** Dalmatians are the only dog breed that can approximate a smile, usually done so if they know they're in trouble or are just very happy. It looks like a snarl, but they do not show their back teeth, and they're usually wagging their tails.

Once one has seen a wolf flash its teeth in a truly threatening manner however, the "wolf grin" becomes a welcome sight. Foxes are also capable of smiling, and in fact look happier when doing so than wolves, since their eyes briefly become slits in a similar manner to a truly happy smiling (it goes along with the "soft mouth" that's essential for returning human.
