* The IronicHell for suicides in ''[[Film/WristcuttersALoveStory Wristcutters]]'' is just like the real world, except that nothing works, everything's kind of gray, and it's impossible to smile. After seeing nothing but despondent looks from all of the characters for the entire movie, the last shot--the leads smiling at one another--is like a wash of beautiful sunlight.

* A well-known scene in ''Film/{{Ninotchka}}'' invokes this trope. Leon attempts to make [[IceQueen Ninotchka]] laugh and/or smile by telling her jokes, but it falls flat when she doesn't find them funny in a room full of cackling men. Leon becomes frustrated and starts to insult her as he leans back in his chair, tipping over with the table behind falling on top of him. Ninotchka shrieks with laughter with the rest of the room, much to everyone's surprise. Leon is annoyed at first, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny but then laughs too]], happy that he got her to 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 ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': Surprisingly enough, when [[StateSec Agent]] [[ArchEnemy Kallus]] actually has cause to ''genuinely'' smile, as opposed to the [[SmugSmiler smug smirk]] he usually does, it's like this. The warmest one comes in [[Recap/StarWarsRebelsS3E20ZeroHourPartII "Zero Hour"]], after [[spoiler:his [[HeelFaceTurn defection]] from the Empire, when he thanks Kanan and the ''Ghost'' crew for taking him in despite their pasts, and Kanan thanks him for everything [[ReverseMole he did]]]].

** Viktor is a giant grump with a bad temper who has been described as a "badger caught in a wire fence with a personality to match". As such, he always has either a scowl or a DeathGlare as his default expressions. The few times he does smile make him appear far friendlier and more approachable than he usually is.

* ''Webcomic/{{Lackadaisy}}'': [[FourEyesZeroSoul Mordecai]] of all people is given one of these in a side comic about what would make him smile. [[WordOfGod Tracy]] states that while there were [[AxeCrazy meaner]] [[SlasherSmile ways]] of answering that question, she went for the more "saccharine" of explanations: [[spoiler: remembering a happy moment from his mostly crappy childhood involving his [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes little sister]]]]. He cracks a small smile that not only softens his presence considerably, but damn near makes him seem normal.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Though he's becoming increasingly sombre in disposition, when Jon is truly happy, it really stands out. When he's reunited with Sansa in Season 6, she is the main source of his adorable rare smiles.
