* ''TheDresdenFiles'':
** Minor side-character Vince Graver from ''Turn Coat'' was described as TheNondescript until his last scene, when he smiles. Dresden notes that the smile completely changes him from a generic average Joe to someone who could light up the room just by being there.

* Invoked in ''Manga/SensualPhrase''. Aine is a CuteBookworm who doesn't gives smiles a lot due to shyness, but when she does, she's very cute... [[spoiler: But when she's chosen as a model ''specifically'' due to this, she cannot smile as cutely as before, which causes her quite the angst.]]

%%* Music/ConcreteBlonde also have a song called "When You Smile". Unlike what you'd expect, the musical backing of the song is DarkerAndEdgier heavy {{Grunge}}[=/=]PostPunk.

* In chapter 9 of ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'', Touji notes that [[BrokenBird Misato]]ís smiles are dazzling:
-->"Uh huh" Misato agreed suddenly, turning one of her dazzling smiles on him. "And its time to real them in" she declared, turning back to the battle before Toji's legs got too shaky from the effects of that awesome smile.

* Sandra Paris (a.k.a. the White Queen) in the ''Literature/NickVelvet'' stories. In her first appearance ("The Theft of the White Queen's Menu"), Nick is astounded that Sandra has been able to keep him under observation in a casino without him noticing. Sandra replies that no one ever notices her unless she smiles. She then smiles at him, and she goes from looking like an innocent librarian to completely dominating the room.

* ''Fanfic/LastChildOfKrypton'':
** Shinji finds [[BrokenBird Asuka]] beautiful when she smiles.
--->Asuka rolled over beside him, her red-gold hair shining in the newborn light. She smiled beatifically, the neural connection clips she wore in her hair blinking faintly. She reached out and stroked his arm gently.
** Kaworu thinks the same thing of [[EmotionlessGirl Rei]]:
--->He said something softly to her, and she jerked back in surprise, and then smiled warmly as he approached.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', the main characters -a married couple of {{Broken Bird}}s- love seeing each other smile for this reason:
** Asuka liked teasing Shinji because she loved seeing him smile after everything what they'd been through.
** Shinji loved seeing Asuka smile, too. When she smiles, he usually cannot deny her anything.
---> If Asuka had fought that day in her usual manner, he might have been able to persuade her. But he hadn't stood a chance against the still tired yet serene smile that she had worn the whole time, so he eventually had given in when she softly asked him to just drive extra carefully.
