* Arisa in the manga of franchise/LyricalNanoha really didn't want to like Fate. She was rather jealous of the attention Nanoha got from her. But she has to admit that disliking her is hard to do when [[http://www.mangahere.co/manga/mahou_shoujo_lyrical_nanoha_a_s/v01/c004/3.html subjected]] to the [[http://www.mangahere.co/manga/mahou_shoujo_lyrical_nanoha_a_s/v01/c004/4.html smile]].

%%* As seen in the quotes page, Van Morrison's "Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)" and TheStoneRoses' "Standing Here".
%%* {{Opeth}}'s Mikael Akerfeldt. Not that he's normally ''un''attractive, but when he [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/29/MikaelAkerfeldt.jpg smiles]], he can be almost ''{{moe}}''.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** [[BrokenBird Jack]], who spends time being a [[TheCynic cynical]], AxCrazy BloodKnight with DeathSeeker tendencies and [[LonersAreFreaks isolates herself]] from everyone else, actually gives off a genuine smile of happiness if [[AllLovingHero Shepard]] romances her.
** In ''3'', Liara has [[TookALevelInCynic taken a level in cynic]] at this point due to a string of tragic events occurring in her life, but if Shepard [[PetTheDog comforts her]] in her time of need, then she'll let out a small smile like she used to back when she was a WideEyedIdealist the first time they met.

* [[KnightInSourArmor Arcee]] in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' has seen countless death and destruction in the war with the Decepticons, but when her friends comfort her, she'll start opening up around them and surprisingly give off an innocent smile as a sign of friendship.

* ''Manga/SamuraiHaremAsuNoYoichi'' has Ayame, who has always lived in the shadow of her older sister Ibuki and feels like her efforts are never appreciated, so when main character Yoichi compliments her cooking, even after her admittance that she had had help from younger sister Kagome, the smile she gives is such that both Yoichi and her three sisters are stunned silent.
* ''Manga/BlackButler'' goes out of its way to prove this of Ciel. To the point where Joker in the manga gives him the stage name of Smile in an ironic sense...but then finds out that Ciel is a [[EvenTheGuysWantHim damn knockout]]. It seems as though Elizabeth's entire point of existing is to make him smile again...and she is one of the few people who can get a genuine smile.

* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sousuke is not unattractive even in PerpetualFrowner mode - it's even directly addressed in the novels, where he's still considered ''very'' attractive, but ''very'' unapproachable, as his eyebrows are in a constant state of slanting down angrily, and his lips are always pressed firmly in a grim, straight thin line. But during the moments where his face relaxes and he lightens up, people who see him like that tend to [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn have their heart racing BIG TIME]].

* Sawako from ''Manga/KimiNiTodoke'' usually looks damn creepy what with resembling [[{{Ringu}} Sadako]] and all, but her genuine warm smile was one of the first reason Kazehaya fell in love with her. When she tries to force herself to smile though, it, ah...doesn't work.

--->''Asuka had only ever seen that smile once, directed at Shinji after Ritsuko -or Misato- finally got him back out of Unit-01. Now she wasn't continually seeing red and green both at once, she had to admit it was quite a nice smile. Rather cute, in fact.''

-->It was tiny, a mere curling on his lips. But it was still a sight to see. Only then did Sakura understand why Sasuke was seemed so fond of the blond. That timid smile that threatened to break through his usual stoic demeanor...at that moment, Sakura felt like she could take on the world to protect that smile.

* Subverted early in the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' cycle when the creators had to cut every incidence where Commodore Norrington smiled (they are still in the deleted scenes on the ''Curse of the Black Pearl'' DVD). Jack Davenport's smile was charming enough for the writers to go DracoInLeatherPants on their ''own character'' and start re-writing him accordingly- these scenes were cut out because the character wasn't supposed to have so much of the audience's sympathy.

** Turner likes this trope. Helen/Eddis from her ''Queen's Thief'' series is described as mannish and decidedly NOT beautiful... but even the dour Magus admits that she has a lovely smile.

%%* Mordion from Diana Wynne Jones' ''Literature/{{Hexwood}}'' is fairly alarming looking - he's tall, gawky, much too skinny, and his face is frequently said to resemble a skull. However, he has such a transformatively warm and beautiful smile that the female protagonist almost falls out of a tree the first time she sees it. Interestingly, at points he is actually seen to deploy the power of his smile strategically.

%%** Played with in the case of Tywin Lannister. He has apparently never smiled since his wife died, which is lamented by his brother and other people who [[UsedToBeASweetKid knew him when he was a nicer man]]. His son [[TheUnfavorite Tyrion]] is present on several occasions when Tywin almost smiles, but instead of being a heartwarming moment, the look is described as "terrible", probably because the context suggests it would be a SlasherSmile. The only time a true smile appears on Tywin's face is [[spoiler: after he has been killed, and even then the maesters say the smile is not genuine, and is only a tightening of the facial muscles as the body starts to decompose. [[GoOutWithASmile Tywin's children (unsurprisingly) prefer to imagine that he is at peace]].]]

* ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'': Gatsby has a '''glorious''' smile:
-->''He smiled understandingly--much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just so far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.''



* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Sarina, one of the Augments that works with Bashir in "Statistical Improbabilities", is catatonic in that appearance due to her senses being too slow for her brain to process. In a later appearance, Bashir is able to get her highly accelerated neural pathways in tune with her senses, breaking her out of her catatonia...and the first time she smiles, Bashir is absolutely smitten with her.

* Generally inverted in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. [[RobotGirl Cameron]] does ''not'' smile much - and every time she is shown smiling, it is ''creepy as hell'' because the audience ''knows'' she's smiling to manipulate people. The sole exception to this is in the episode "Allison From Palmdale" where a scene showing her laughing and smiling is played as this trope - as Cameron is in her "Allison" persona and thinks she's human, and thus feels real emotions.

** In Rise From The Ashes from the first game, your client is Chief Prosecutor Lana Skye who spends the entire case from stoic to irritated to angry. Its stated repeatedly by her sister Ema, and other people that she used to smile a lot more and after a certain case, she completely changed, but no action from her ever indicates any of this was ever true. Until you actually solve the case and prove that [[spoiler: Ema did not murder Prosecutor Neil Marshall like Lana genuinely believed and that the real killer of her case and the one mentioned before was Damon Gant, Chief of Police, meaning Ema was innocent all along.]] The revelation finally hits her and she finally shows that smile everyone talked about all case long. And it is an AMAZING one!
