(Seen It a Million Times, Rolling Updates) A smile done by an Idiot Hero or any goofy character. Also done by someone in a silly situation or when doing something really stupid. Might also be used when a villain or an anti-hero is scolding the smiler for believing in love/friendship/dreams/themselves. Usually from ear to ear, eyes closed in anime and manga. Might look really goofy. A staple of anime and manga in general. Used to shown a character is innocent, brave, The Determinator when it comes to beliefs, too stupid to know they're in a dangerous situation, having fun in an odd situation, etc. Examples: Anime and Manga
- Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece sports one most of the time, even when facing death. Though if he's not smiling...
- Naruto grins a lot, especially pre-timeskip. He certainly fits the idiot bit as well.
- Goku from Dragon Ball, occasionally, more common in the Dragon Ball era and of course, he's an Idiot Hero.
- The leaders of each Digimon series tend to grin this way, Davis sporting the most idiotic.
- Jaden of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX has a very cocky one and he is certainly an Idiot Hero.
- Natsu from Fairy Tail is not that bright. His usual facial expression is this.
- America from Axis Powers Hetalia doesn't grin as often as most examples, but when he does it's this. His character is a bit silly.
- Alfred E. Newman, the cover boy from Mad Magazine, always has one of these
- Flik pulls a great one in A Bugs Life, when he tips the entire harvest down a crack and is summoned before the ant council.
- Snow from Final Fantasy XIII tends to make one, especially apparent on his official art. Given his status as the resident Idiot Hero, it's only appropiate.
- Lan from Megaman Battle Network sometimes has one (like in the cover to the first game) and he is an Idiot Hero.
- Crash from Crash Bandicoot is indeed very stupid and nearly always has a grin on his face.
- Spongebob Squarepants frequently displays one, as does Patrick. They're quite idiotic.
- The latter half of Ren And Stimpy bears one near perpetually and is really stupid.
- South Park gives one to Butters in an oddly minimal fashion, it is basically a normal mouth "piece" placed slightly higher up the face, however it is used almost always when Butters is doing something particularly dim and is strangely effective.
