* In ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', 626 (Stitch) bares his teeth in the most humorously creepy way when he says ''"Hi!"'' to Lilo in an attempt to show friendliness and to get her to adopt him. Considering what happens from there, you could say that it worked.

* This was implied in SonicUnleashed where one of the [=NPCs=] asked Sonic why he doesn't smile in his Werehog form and wants him to do it. Sonic does so (albeit offscreen) and the NPC was startled by the [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily discovery]], regretting that he asked.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', Buster and Babs [[BurgerFool are both working at Weenie Burger]]. The whole time, their manager keeps reminding them that they have to smile. During the course of the episode, the smile becomes more and more forced to the point where it's just their mouths stretched wide while showing a lot of teeth, especially since one of their customers is Montana Max.

* Jones of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' [[spoiler:had to learn all emotional responses through observation and mimic, having none of her own.]] She [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1127 mentions to Antimony]] that she knows how to smile in theory, but in practice it's unnerving. The actual result isn't shown, only Annie's reaction.

* We humans are the only species on Earth who have turned toothed smiling into a sign of joy. If an ape or a monkey grins at you, it is conveying either aggression or submission, because it feels threatened. When you show your teeth, you are doing what translates as "bare your weapons" in animal language. In fact, this may be why it became a friendly gesture in humans in the first place; when you express friendliness or happiness, you are advertising that you do not want any trouble.

* Nacht, in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', has a smile. Well, in a sense, anyway. It's [[TakeOurWordForIt never accurately described]], but it's been used quite successfully as an interrogation technique.
