* The deep ocean squid species ''Promachoteuthis sulcus'' looks like it has human teeth. Actually, it's an optical illusion created by the squid's teeth-like lips, but that doesn't make it [[http://bigpicture.typepad.com/writing/images/2007/10/27/coral_squid_teethjpg.jpg any less creepy looking]].

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moa-nalo Moa-nalo]], extinct large ducks that lived on Hawaii till about 17th century CE. Related to mergansers, but a different subfamily. They filled the ecological niche of goats and deer and some of them evolved impressive "pseudoteeth".
* The toothlike serrations inside a penguin's mouth, also used to grip fish, are #3 of ''Website/{{Cracked}}'''s [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19871_the-7-most-terrifying-mouths-in-nature_p2.html 7 Most Terrifying Mouths in Nature]].
* Ducks have tooth-like structures on the sides of their bill called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecten_%28biology%29 pecten]], which are used for preening and straining food from the water.

* Iago from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', as pictured above, sports a [[http://www.aladdincentral.org/images/displayimage.php?album=59&pos=1 fine set of choppers]]. The animator stated that Iago was designed that way to [[InkSuitActor resemble his voice actor]], Gilbert Gottfried.

** Guido, the microraptor from the penultimate Land Before Time movie is a sort of ''inversion''. He looks like your usual toothy bird, only having teeth in certain instances. He really should have had teeth the whole time. Sharp ones. He also lacked the big toe claw that microraptors had. The Movie acted like he was just a weird-looking modern bird instead of the tiny deinonychosaur that he was.
** Turning to more regularly-occurring characters, there is Petrie the Pteranodon who has also been known to summon a set of pearly whites on occasion. While some pterosaurs had teeth, Pteranodon did not and the name in fact literally translates to "winged toothless".

** A magazine published around when the movie hit theaters said that the creators tried giving the Iguanadons beaks, and found that they made it look like he was clopping coconuts together. It also just looked lazy.

** The film features not only toothy pelicans, but also toothy fish (not counting the sharks). Especially noticable is Kathy, one of Nemo's classmates (she is a blue and yellow fish with prominent buck teeth who screams, "Oh my gosh, Nemo's swimming out to sea!" after seeing Nemo touching the diver's boat).

* Mammal variant: one Dentisticks dog-chew ad depicts "doggy dentures" as a joke, with smiling dogs displaying brilliant white CGI teeth that are ''very'' obviously shaped like a human's, not a dog's. Yes, dogs are supposed to have teeth, but the incongruity of this trope still applies.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'': All of the avian characters have large sets of straight, human-like teeth, with Junior occasionally mugging the screen with a big toothy smile.

** In [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 the sequel]], Chica's new version also has teeth in her peak, though she removes her peak when she starts to hunt the player, leaving only the teeth of the endoskeleton visible. Older Chica also has two sets of teeth, this time even better visible due to her suit and endoskeleton no longer being aligned.

** Pooza the Wizard, from the ''extremely'' short-lived Adult Swim series King Star King, has a mug full of pointy fangs. Justified, since he's a magical being of unknown origin with BizzareAlienBiology
