* ''Sub-Audio'' stars a [[TheStoic stoic]] HugeSchoolgirl that's mistaken for badass just because she doesn't/can't smile when the situation calls for it (girl talk, a guy offering tissues, etc.,) which [[IJustWantToHaveFriends really]] [[IJustWantToBeLoved gets to her]] [[NotSoStoic more than anyone realizes.]] It takes a [[BrotherSisterIncest "session"]] with her [[SiblingYinYang Cute Shotaro Boy brother]] to cheer her up where despite a subtle, pleasant smile that comes naturally, [[NightmareFace her forced smile results in this trope]] [[ShootTheShaggyDog and her brother advises her to stick]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny to being stoic.]]

** Villainous sociopath Azula. She can [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/azula%20smirk/Sara_Shadow/Avatar/azula-smirkhd-thebeach.png smirk]] without a problem, but [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/azula%20smile/Vig0r/vlcsnap-223570.png sincere smiling?]] Interestingly, she ''can'' give a real smile, after she practices a bit. She used a charming smile on a hapless partygoer later in the evening, to great effect. Then she went on a tangent about how she and the partygoer would rule the world (in [[AxCrazy typical Azula style]]), which ruined the whole effect, [[CrowningMomentofFunny and sent the poor guy running for the hills.]]

* [[Manga/LuckyStar Akira's]] friend Akuru Nakatani is never shown smiling. [[PerpetualFrowner She constantly looks mildly peeved]], though she's not necessarily angry. When Akuru says she smiles now and then, TheUnSmile is what Akira imagines. (As for what it really looks like? [[TakeOurWordForIt Presumably]] [[WhenSheSmiles nice]].)

* ''KyoNoGoNoNi'' has a chapter about trying to get a girl to smile. The characters regret it.

* In general Amu from ''ShugoChara'' is capable of smiling normally, but in her "cool and spicy" mode at school when attempting to be friendly to others she has a threateningly disturbing smile...really.

* ''MutekiKanbanMusume'' has Tomoka Kayahara who somehow fulfils both this and WhenSheSmiles. When enjoying a bowl of her favourite ramen, Kayahara-sensei has a sparkly bishojo smile. Otherwise her Unsmile is the kind of thing that lingers in your nightmares.

* General consensus within the {{DCAU}} is that Batman smiling, regardless of context, is creepy as hell. It's even a ''plot point'' in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''

* In ''[[TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Silver Chair]]'', when Eustace, Jill, and Puddleglum were trying to think of a way to leave Harfang without being caught, part of the idea was to put them off their guard by pretending that they love being there and are looking forward to the Autumn Feast. To this end, [[TheEeyore Puddleglum]] tells them they've got to be [[HaveAGayOldTime "gay"]]. During his demonstration, "he assumed a ghastly grin."

* UsefulNotes/GordonBrown... he had a perfectly respectable "dour Scot" thing going on, but then his PR people must have decided he wasn't warm enough, because he suddenly started doing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYPqAo3UasA&feature=related THIS all the time.]] ''(Shudder)''
** [[Series/{{QI}} Alan]] [[Series/JonathanCreek Davies]] summarized Gordon Brown smile's creepiness by saying "you can see him DECIDE to smile, which really ruins any smile."

* In [[EdgarAllanPoe Edgar Allan Poe's]] short story "Berenice", the titular character's long illness does ''something'' to her teeth that gives her one of these. At least it does according to the narrator--who, as a self-confessed opium addict who tends to black out for hours at a time, may not be [[UnreliableNarrator the most reliable]].)
