->''Glistening white triangular tooth\\

I've got a fang''
-->-- '''Music/TheyMightBeGiants''', "I've Got a Fang"

Simply put, a character's protruding teeth are played for [[UglyCute unconventional cuteness]].

Most often, as suggested by the trope name, the character sports enlarged canine teeth. For maximum cuteness, at least one fang will be visible at all times, even when the character's mouth is closed, and especially if they have a CatSmile. These indicate, generally, that the character is mischievous, slightly hostile, or a trickster, but not actually "bad."

Cute Little Fangs are pretty much a standard feature of {{Cat Girl}}s and other characters who fall under LittleBitBeastly. UglyCute critters tend to have these as part of their unconventional brand of cuteness.

Usually limited to comedies. Does not normally apply to Western-style vampires (they do have fangs, but [[FangsAreEvil not the endearing kind).]]

May be related to traditional Japanese supernatural monsters such as ''oni'', who are usually depicted with tusks or fangs meant to look rather comical instead of outright frightening. (This is explicitly the case in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', where a number of characters are AncientAstronauts versions of oni and other supernatural creatures.)

This trope is also TruthInTelevision. [[CuteKitten Many baby animals, whether]] [[PreciousPuppies of the carnivorous persuasion]] [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys or the simian persuasion]], sport them. In a stranger case, some people inherit a physical trait known traditionally as "Tiger Teeth", a genetic quirk that results in elongated eye teeth. This is particularly common in Japan (due to a common genetic quirk), where they're known as "yaeba" and typically considered cute. Many girls actually undergo a surgical procedure to achieve this effect. Teeth which are crowded in the mouth can result in pushed-forward eyeteeth, giving the same effect.

Viewers who are unable to appreciate the cuteness may refer to this as a "snaggletooth".

Contrast FangsAreEvil.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Rin has one, being the son of Satan, in ''[[Manga/BlueExorcist Ao No Exorcist]]'' after his demonic power awakens. If he's pissed off or goes berserk, it falls under FangsAreEvil.
* Komugi and Koyori in ''Anime/NurseWitchKomugi''.
* Ja Wangnan from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' as a male version.
* Ryoko in ''Anime/TenchiMuyo''. Indeed, it would seem that every non-human, non-Juraian has some kind of fangs, and usually at least slightly pointed ears.
** You don't get to see them very often, but Ryoko actually has top AND bottom fangs. You can catch the bottom ones on occasion when she screams.
* This is done constantly in the 6 episode OAV of Nuku Nuku.
* Lum, Jariten and others from ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''.
* Ryôga from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. In fact, one reading of "Ryôga" is "Good Fang". These are apparently genetic, as seen when girl-Ranma convinced him she was his sister by wearing fake teeth with her [[WigDressAccent flimsy disguise]].
* The eponymous character from the manga and anime ''Anime/InuYasha'' sports these, since he's descended from a dog yokai.
* Merle from ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne''.
* The remarkably dangerous Puma sisters in ''Anime/DominionTankPolice''.
* ''[[Anime/QueensBlade Queen's Blade: Hide & Seek]]''. Elina flashes hers on [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/v01/c004/19.html numerous]] [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/v01/c004/22.html occasions]] and is even said to be [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/queen_s_blade_hide_seek/v04/c018/26.html just like a cat.]]
* Leo from ''Manga/BeastMaster''.
* Excel from ''Manga/ExcelSaga''.
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya''
** Tsuruya (that's her at the top of the page), whose FanNickname is LOL Fang-tan. In a noteworthy variation, the fang actually gives her a [[FangThpeak speech impediment]][[note]]The fang causes her to mispronounce certain words; it has nothing to do with her sing-song style of speaking[[/note]]. Which just makes her ''that much cuter.''
** At least one illustration in the light novels gives Haruhi one.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''
** Evangeline A.K. [=McDowell=], given hints about the future plot of the story, may be a rare Western vampire who gets the Cute Little Fangs treatment.
** Asuna has them as well, though they're only occasionally visible.
* Risky, the apprentice shinigami in ''[[Anime/RiskySafety Omishi Magical Theatre: Risky☆Safety]]''.
* Cyberdolls Sara and Mami in ''Anime/HandMaidMay''.
* Lime from ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'' and its sequels sometimes seems to have a Cute Little Fang, but it's hard to be sure -- it's clearly a tooth, but it's far more rounded and blunt than the usual anime fang.
* Tina from ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi''.
* ''{{Manga/Naruto}}''
** Kiba Inuzuka
** Suigetsu is a borderline example. While he has one triangular shark-like tooth that sticks out of his mouth while it's closed, that's what [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily all of his teeth]] look like.
** Naruto himself has them to varying degrees in the first few stages of his Kyuubi transformation. Four-tailed and further [[FangsAreEvil take a different route]].
* Madarame from ''{{Manga/Genshiken}}'' and his [[SpiritualSuccessor successor]][[note]]future self[[/note]] in ''Manga/SpottedFlower'', though "cute" might not be the word. The fangs emphasize his snake-like qualities.
* Fuu from ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' gets these when particularly angry.
* Mara, the demoness from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', has these; in her case, they seem to emphasize that she's ''less'' dangerous than she looks -- the series is primarily a romantic comedy, and so she would be out of place if she were a real danger. Plus they let her make a vampire joke in the TV series.
* Mew Ichigo of ''Manga/TokyoMewMew''. Most of the characters have these -- the aliens do, at least.
* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}''
** Hiyori Sarugaki of is often teased about her prominent little fang by fellow Vizard Shinji Hirako, and later by Ichigo, at which she promptly [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this by saying the fangs are one of her charms. She has a fang ''and'' buck teeth, and it makes her even funnier.
** Haineko, the manifested spirit form of Rangiku Matsumoto's zanpakuto, has them.
* Hakufu and Chouhi from ''Manga/IkkiTousen''.
* ''{{Anime/Slayers}}'' is fond of these in a couple places.
** Non-humans in human guise generally have them (Xellos, Filia, and Valgaav), but perhaps the only real humorous application of them is Lina herself, where they range from the "cute little fang" variant to [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v172/OptimalMegatron/eeeevil.jpg worryingly noticeable]].
** Gourry got them on occasion, in the third season (''TRY'') of the anime.
** Thanks to ArtEvolution, Lina's are seen almost all the time starting with ''Revolution''. [[http://images.wikia.com/kanzaka/images/0/01/Slayers_Revolution_Lina.jpg The cute type for the most part.]]
* Ayano in ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma''.
* Mikoto from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}''... also a quasi-CatGirl.
* Kuroi-sensei and Misao from ''Anime/LuckyStar''. Misao, like Tsuruya, also has a bit of a speech impediment.
* Delmo in ''Anime/CosplayComplex'' possesses them, even though she is a bunny girl. Apparently rodent teeth are not as cute though.
* Masumi Sera in ''DetectiveConan'.
* Sapphire in the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga.
* Holo from ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'', but hers are permanent and natural since she's a wolf spirit. In human form, anyway. In her natural form it's more a case of MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily -- as anyone who's seen the mouth of an even completely ordinary wolf can tell.
* Ouka, the female werewolf in ''Manga/DotHackLegendOfTheTwilight''.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''
** Kiyal, one of Kittan's three sisters in , has a fang. She's the most feral of the three. And yet in the same episode she debuts in, her own brother goes on a rant about how humans don't have fangs, only Beastmen have fangs. Wha-huh?
** [[PrincessClassic Nia]] of all people has one of these in some official HighSchoolAU art. And it's [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=297728 ADORABLE]]. Look closely, and she also has them in [[http://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=117152 this official Halloween art]].
** In a rare male example, Viral has them when he smiles. When he's not smiling it's MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily.
* Haruko from ''{{VisualNovel/AIR}}'' has them, even though she is generally depicted as a nice person, albeit with some issues.
* Ranka Lee from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' when she's singing. Understandable, being one-quarter Zentraedi.
* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''
** Arf and Agito. The former is a [[PettingZooPeople wolf-girl]], while the latter is a demon-girl.
** [[ThoseTwoGuys Rio Wesley]] of ''[=ViVid=]'' also sports one, though she's just an ordinary, [[GenkiGirl energetic]] [[HumanAlien Mid-childan]].
* Ramia from the ''Anime/PrettySammy'' series.
* Liru and Pachira from ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'', being a [[CuteMonsterGirl Werewolf and western-style vampire]] respectively.
* Haruko Haruhara in ''{{Anime/FLCL}}'' has these in the baseball episode (possibly others).
* Hazuki from ''Anime/TsukuyomiMoonPhase'', who's a small vampire.
* Pai from ''Manga/SazanEyes''. Very cute.
* Train Heartnet, the eponymous ''Manga/BlackCat''.
* Another male example comes in the form of the Medicine Peddler from ''{{Anime/Mononoke}}'' and ''Anime/AyakashiSamuraiHorrorTales''. They're more subtle than usual, so unless he's gritting his teeth or yelling (not something he does a lot) you barely see them. But they're there.
* Anzai Nobuyuki seems to stick these (or rather a single fang projecting over the bottom lip) on his main characters, especially when they're drawn in a more humorous fashion. It's really noticable on Ginta in ''{{Manga/MAR}}''. There is no logical reason given for why they have them.
* Tomomi Shirakawa of the hentai title ''{{Princess 69}}'' has this. It's most prevailent when she smiles mischieviously and the "camera" is shown close to her face...
* ''Manga/FairyTail''
** Due to Dragon Slayer magic, Natsu and Gajeel have fangs, though not really cute. [[spoiler:Luxus' fangs are even less cute.]]
** [[TokenMiniMoe Wendy]], on the other hand...
* ''Manga/SugarSugarRune'': The main characters, Chocola and Vanilla, are witches who have these.
* Daisuke "Beast" Inuki from the {{yaoi}} manga ''My Beast'' has very pronounced fangs on his lower jaw. These usually make him look more intimidating, but in a few scenes they look very cute.
* Seras in the ''Hellsing'' [[{{Manga/Hellsing}} manga]] and [[{{Anime/Hellsing}} OVA]], at least whilst she's not going psycho. [[{{MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily}} And when she is]]...
* ''{{Umisho}}'''s Maaya is almost an {{Expy}} of Mayu from ''Manga/AiYoriAoshi'', but she also borrows Tina's fang (and swimming skill).
* Tasuki from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. You can see his fangs just about every time he opens his mouth.
* Moka and Kokoa from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' sport Cute Little Fangs, being vampires. In Moka's case though, it's only Outer Moka who has proper Cute Little Fangs -- the more mature-looking Inner Moka has longer, more menacing looking fangs.
* {{Manga/Karin}}, who provided the former trope [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Karin-CLF-teensy.jpg image.]] [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as she is a vampire.
* Both Giroro and Tamama of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' have these, but Tamama's are really only shown when he's angry.
* Lala's sister, Nana, from ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' usually has one ridiculously cute fang showing which makes her even more ridiculously cute.
* ''{{Manga/Saki}}'' has Yuuki sporting one these, because she's the resident GenkiGirl, and Kana sporting another one of these, because she has that entire CatGirl schtick going on.
* Tamako, the main character of ''Battle Club'', has one of these.
* Abel of ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood'' has them sometimes; not too much of a surprise given that he's an (uber powerful) [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires vampire]].
* Vash from ''{{Manga/Trigun}}'' shows two at times.
* Eri from ''Manga/SchoolRumble''.
* Ray Kon from ''{{Anime/Beyblade}}''. As well as the rest of the White Tigers team.
** Also Kyoya.
* The eponymous Niea from ''Anime/NieaUnder7'' has them, likely because she is an [[HumanAlien alien]]. Still, other aliens in the show seem to lack them.
* Elise from ''Anime/SkyGirls'' has these. She also wears short, sharp-looking bunny ears to complete the effect.
* Garlic Jr. in ''DragonBallZ''. He may be a villain but it's still cute looking, the way one fang sticks out of his mouth when he smiles.
* In a FreezeFrameBonus moment, Nyamo from ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' has one when she's drunk in Episode 14.
* Jin from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', in his demonic form, he has [[http://quizilla.teennick.com/user_images/S/SH/SHU/shuichisgirlfriend/1165021852_8screencap.jpg the cutest little fang]].
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'': Revy has one of these in some of the omake. Especially notable in Omake 2: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kYMByQFR08 Mahou Shoujo-hen]]'', where she is very bright and cheery... [[TriggerHappy until she pulls out those two pistols]].
** Also [[CreepyTwins Hansel and Gretel]]
* Nori from ''Manga/TokyoTribe 2''.
* Maria from ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei''.
* Ichikawa in ''{{LightNovel/Sukisho}}'' has one of these in almost every scene for no adequately explained reason.
* Ritsuka in ''{{Manga/Loveless}}'' occasionally has these when he's yelling at someone. Slightly justified in that he's still got his cat ears and tail.
* Hachikuji from ''{{LightNovel/Bakemonogatari}}'' has these, and they see a lot of use, since her standard retaliation when she and Araragi end up fighting is to bite him with all her might.
* Yui of ''Anime/AngelBeats'' has a pair of them, though only one is generally seen.
* Kirino from ''LightNovel/OreNoImoutoGaKonnaNiKawaiiWakeGaNai'' sports these; they become especially evident when playing eroge.
* Index from ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' exhibits these at times, usually when about to bite Touma.
* Scanty and Kneesocks from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', with a tad of FangsAreEvil. It's lower incisors for Scanty and upper incisors for Kneesocks.
* {{Lampshaded}} in the {{Hentai}} manga ''Mozaiku x San Shimai'', where a {{Tsundere}} girl's cute little fang interferes with... well, take a guess. Fortunately, no serious pain results.
* Kyouko in ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' and Kirika in ''Manga/PuellaMagiOrikoMagica''. Both play with this trope, Kyouko having two fangs instead of the normal single one, and Kirika most assuredly [[{{Yandere}} does]] [[AxCrazy not]] [[{{CuteAndPsycho}} fit]] with the normal personality type the fang tends to signify. At all.
* Yayoi from ''Manga/NekoDeGomen'' when in her CatGirl form.
* Yune and Alice from ''Manga/IkokuMeiroNoCroisee''.
* Romania from ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'', which has led to fan speculation about him possibly being a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] or at least liking to pretend that he's one. Belgium has them in some sketches too, but they're not nearly as noticeable.
* In the ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' manga, Saya has a fang in just about every image, even when her mouth is closed -- the artist seemed intent on displaying it at all times. In the anime it's visible only when her mouth is wide open.
* Hibiki from the anime version of ''Anime/TheIdolmaster''.
* Loki from ''Anime/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok''. Especially notable in the manga, where he takes them out at one point and uses them as homing devices.
* Kuro from ''Kodomo no Jikan'' sports some fangs to emphasize her [[CreepyChild feral nature]].
* Seiji from ''KidsOnTheSlope'', which matches up with his slightly mischievous personality.
* Impmon and his evolution Beelzemon, after he pulls his HeelFaceTurn, in DigimonTamers.
* Mii from ''Popotan''
* Miyoshi from ''Manga/{{Switch}}'' has these [[SproutingEars among other things]].
* Sakurako from ''Yuru Yuri''
* The LittleBitBeastly {{Kitsune}} Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' has them.
* ''Manga/LoveLab'''s Riko Kurahashi is a 24/7 owner of a pair of upper canines.
* Rin Matsuoka from ''Anime/{{Free}}'' had a small pair of fangs when he was a child. Now, he has inexplicably grown [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily a complete set of shark-like teeth]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[ComicBook/XMen Nightcrawler]] has them in the comics, depending on the artist.
* {{Wolverine}} and Sabretooth have them in some adaptations and when drawn by some artists, though describing any aspect of those two characters as "cute" is a ''real'' good way to have one's lifespan drastically shortened.
* Jubilee gets them after being turned into a vampire. This turns her into a CuteMonsterGirl, especialy when Sana Takeda draws her.
* Many characters in comics drawn by [[{{Animesque}} Adam Warren]].
* LenoreTheCuteLittleDeadGirl
* Illyana Rasputin in Darkchild mode has them.
* Charlene in ''{{Horndog}}''.
* The ([[CuteMonsterGirl quite attractive]]) [[AllTrollsAreDifferent troll-girls]] in the ''{{XXXenophile}}'' story "A Beautiful Tale". Actually, in some panels, they appear to have full-on ''shark teeth''... but the artist somehow makes it work.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Rachel Morgan, from ''Literature/TheHollows'', spends several novels dating a living vampire named Kisten. As part of their sexplay, he gives her a set of 'caps'; prosthetic vampire fangs that young vamps wear over their ''real'' fangs in order to help prevent 'accidents'. When Rachel, a human (basically) tries them on, she finds the change in roles from prey to predator ''very'' hot. As does Kisten.
* Lily in the web-novel ''{{Literature/Domina}}''. Maybe a subversion, since its mentioned that people who don't know who well think they're freaky.
* The short story "Green Shadows" from Alan Burt Akers' ''[[PlanetaryRomance Kregen]]'' series has the main character notice: "Her mouth was red, and a white tooth showed a tip just indenting her lower lip. Some folk find that no blemish but an added attraction in a pretty woman's face."
* MonaTheVampire. Though hers are fake.
* Literature/TheOtherworldSeries has Delilah D'Artigo, a werecat, who retains her fangs in human form. Her fangs are actually more prominent than those of her vampire sister, Menolly, as Menolly can retract them whereas Delilah cannot.
* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', [[ProudWarriorRaceGirl Kitai's]] canine teeth are frequently pointed out when she has her mouth open, the implication being that they are longer and sharper than a human's (but don't take away from her attractiveness). Kitai, by the way, is a [[OurElvesAreBetter Marat]] "barbarian".
* In the ''Arcana Chronicles'' Lark, [[spoiler: AKA Strength]], has these in conjunction with her animal-based abilities. She seems self-conscious about them until Finnian, the Magician, tells her he thinks they are cool.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* This is a fleeting example, but in the ''{{Series/Angel}}'' episode "Smile Time", when puppet-Angel switches to puppet-Vampire-Angel to deliver the battle-ending set of attacks, the puppet naturally has fangs. And the fangs are definitely cute and little, but not actually little relative to the cute little mouth.
* The Adipose creatures in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Partners in Crime" have one of these. They're supposed to look like the lone milk tooth of an infant.
* Some of the Centauri have these in ''Series/BabylonFive''. All of them, or at least all the males are supposed to have these, but due to budgetal and time constraints, as well as some actors with aversion towards them, they are only present some of the time.
* Wimzie's little brother Bo on ''Series/WimziesHouse''.
* Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel's ''BizarreFoods'' has odd front teeth that give him this appearance when he smiles.
* Erica from ''MyBabysittersAVampire'' and she uses them to her full advantage.
* The Cat from ''Series/RedDwarf'' has large, somewhat comical-looking fangs. They're the only visible sign that he's not really human. Considering the fact he's a flighty, ridiculous cat-man, they probably qualify as cute.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''{{TabletopGame/Exalted}}'': Fangs are one of the available Lunar Exalt [[http://wiki.white-wolf.com/exalted/index.php?title=Tell "Tells"]], as demonstrated in [[http://sayda.deviantart.com/art/DotFA-Wolf-With-Red-Roses-114909050 this picture]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* In ''ComicStrip/OnTheFastrack'', [[spoiler:Thrip has become a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent cyber vampire]]. Even for her, the fangs are tiny]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* [[CuteMonsterGirl Neeshka]] in ''NeverwinterNights2'' possesses these as part of her CatGirl appearance.
* Midna from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' possesses a set of tiny fangs, one of which shows through her lips when her mouth is closed.
* Linhua from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has one on the left side of her mouth.
* Sora of the ''KingdomHearts'' series has these whenever he is in [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Halloween Town]] or [[{{Disney/TheLionKing}} the Pride Lands]]. It's justified in the latter's case, as he is turned into a lion there.
** In the former, Sora gains them as a result of wearing [[{{OurVampiresAreDifferent}} vampire]]-like clothing. The clothes themselves look [[{{CuteMonsterGirl}} adorable]] in the first game, but [[{{Badass}} badass]] in ''KingdomHeartsII'', though the fangs remain small and cute.
* Most demons in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games. Just to drive the point home, nearly all of their [[CombinationAttack Team Attack]] [[SuperMovePortraitAttack portraits]] show them off.
* ''RatchetAndClank'': While the in-game model of Ratchet doesn't have noticeable fangs of any sort, he mysteriously gains them in the [[http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/action/ratchetclank/video_player.html?id=J3U7nzCr5bsPvj7c European advertisements]]. In the third game, his [[GirlOfTheWeek girlfriend]] Sasha does have them in-game.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog''
** [[MsFanservice Rouge the Bat]] from the SonicTheHedgehog games has little fangs, 'cause she's, ya know, a bat.
** Sonic was meant to have one in his original Japanese designs but it was taken out pre-release when Sega of America got a hold of it. He has cute fangs, but they don't protrude.
** [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Blaze the Cat]] has the same fangs too, but much smaller. They generally aren't visible unless she opens her mouth wide enough.
** Most of the main cast do have fangs of some sort, but they normally don't protrude and sometimes aren't meant to be cute ([[TheComicallySerious Knuckles]], [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Shadow]]). Oddly, Tails, a fox, has no sharp teeth at all.
* ''WorldOfWarcraft''
** Female orcs and trolls always have small but visible tusks, and have the option of being [[CuteMonsterGirl rather pretty]]. Although draenei also have decidedly sharp teeth -- and the females, [[FetishFuel at least]], are attractive -- said teeth aren't visible when a character has their mouth closed.
** Night elves have fangs too, which is one of the reasons some followers of ''Warcraft'' lore think they're descended from the trolls (the fangs being residual tusks). Like with the draenei, though, you can't see them when their mouths are closed, which is most of the time. (Blood elves appear to have lost their fangs.)
** Tauren, too, have sharp fangs that are only visible when they open their mouths. It may seem strange seeing as cows are herbivores, but the lore made it pretty clear that tauren aren't.
* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros''
** {{The Goomba}}s. Though they were "evil" at first, there more recent appearances come off as cute and their tiny fangs only further push the point.
** Played more straight with Goombaria and Goombella of the VideoGame/PaperMario series, having only one small fang pointing out.
** Bowser Jr. sports a single, tiny fang in the upper corner of his mouth. He has two fangs in ''Super Mario Galaxy'', although, oddly, he goes back to having only one in every other game.
** Boos are an inversion: they sport a set of comically ''large'' fangs.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld''
** Marta consistently has one in the left side of her mouth for some inexplicable reason. Marta's fang is [[LampshadeHanging called out]] by [[spoiler:Ratatosk]] when Marta finishes a battle with her "Radiant Roar" Mystic Arte. Emil later calls it out after battles [[spoiler:when Ratatosk is sealed away (again) temporarily]], albeit more timidly.
-->'''Marta:''' Beautiful roses have thorns!\\
[[spoiler: '''Ratatosk:''']] Beauty, Marta, has a fang...\\
'''Marta:''' Be a little more enthusiastic!
** Evil sadist bitch Alice also sports a pair occasionally, but only when she's making a particularly evil face, so it may just be there for effect.
* The [[HalfHumanHybrid half]]-[[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon girl]] Lilica of ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart''.
* The title character in ''{{VideoGame/Klonoa}}''.
* The ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'' series:
** Remilia Scarlet is usually depicted with these. Fitting, as she's a vampire. The "cute" aspect is often played up in fanworks, with her maid/servant Sakuya often found daydreaming of that fang and what it can do.
** Remilia's younger sister and fellow vampire, Flandre, is occasionally shown with these as well (mostly in fan-works). Of course, given Flandre's psychosis and prospensity for destruction on a massive scale, sometimes the fangs are distinctly neither little nor cute.
** On a lesser note, Rumia, whose fang is used to express her childishness (and tendency to be one of the few characters that is actually mentioned to eat humans).
* Jack Frost from the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series (and by extension, all his other forms, such as [[EvilCounterpart Black Frost]] and [[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raiho]].)
* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Iris]] in ''RuneFactoryFrontier''. Yes, she is (they are?) a vampire, but it's the next thing to an InformedAttribute.
* The Sniper from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has slightly exaggerated canines, and a good deal of fanart also portrays him as having them. Not visible when his mouth is closed, however.
* Agneah, one of the [[spoiler:escaped summons]] in ''SummonNight: Twin Age'', has tiny fangs.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** Several Pokémon, including Shinx and Oshawott.
** A good deal of the first-evolution Pokémon, in fact. Some of them retain their fangs into their evolved forms, where they are less adorable, to say the least.
* Javik in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' has some, although due to being a PerpetualFrowner, they're rarely seen.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'': Furio Tigre and Shi-Long Lang, both characters who have strong ties to predator animals in their names and appearance, have pointed incisors.
* Satoko Hojo from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi''. However, her fang is hardly noticeable in the first season of the anime, and even in later seasons it's often not seen. It's seen in many of her sound novel poses, both the [[http://exfrieza.homestead.com/files/g-satoko02.jpg remakes]] and originals.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has tiny fangs all over the place. Battler, Jessica, Maria and Beatrice (among others) have them, though only Beatrice and Maria keep theirs in the anime and PS3 port.
* Makoto of ''{{VisualNovel/Kanon}}'', [[spoiler:an early clue to her fox origins.]]
* Daikuji Ayu from ''VisualNovel/RumblingHearts''.
* Kudryavka from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has one. She doesn't really fit the tricksterish or catgirl personality, though, so it's probably part of her vaguely vapiric, Eastern European theme.
* The dragon in ''VisualNovel/DraKoi'' has little fangs as a human, which turn into massive fangs when she fires breath attacks. Eventually, we see her fire breath attacks with much smaller fangs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Luna from ''DominicDeegan'', despite being human, has fangs similar to an Orcs. They are quite adorable. [[ChekhovsGun And important later]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''
** Grace, when in her half-squirrel form.
** A recently introduced character, [[http://www.egscomics.com/?date=2007-09-14 Catalina Bobcat]]. Along with her name and first name, it makes her a quasi CatGirl.
* ''WapsiSquare''
** Tina, who claims her fangs are the result of botched dental surgery. This may or may not be true; Tina has an... unusual history.
** The [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/11152004/ Drunken College Golems]] have them too.
** Not to mention the rather [[OurVampiresAreDifferent unconventional]] [[http://wapsisquare.com/projects/pablowapsi-illustrations/attachment/vampire-gals-color/ Vampire Gals]]. (Note that this image, which shows the fangs to good advantage, is borderline NSFW, although their other [[http://wapsisquare.com/comic/another-time-then/ appearances]] are less so.)
* The green-skinned cleric Benn'Joon aka "Benny" in the webcomic ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''. She often has one tusk-like Cute Little Fang peeking out from her lower jaw over her upper lip, especially when she's pouting.
* In ''{{Pandect}}'', Ice, a Dog Ace (a dog who has a soul and can also appear in human form), has slightly longer canine teeth than most humans. Of course.
* ''HannaIsNotABoysName''
** Conrad, while not meant to be overwhelmingly "cute", sports a single tiny fang that's far from intimidating.
** [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/wp-content/gallery/hannarts/conrad_isabat.jpg We present to you, Conbat.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
** Therkla, the half-orc ninja, has cute little ''tusks''.
** As does, in one flashback panel, Therkla's orc mother, in a subversion of the stereotypical half-orc origin story.
** [[spoiler:Evil Vaarsuvius]] also has Cute Little Fangs, though because of the circumstances surrounding their appearance, they're actually quite creepy.
** So does Redcloak, like all goblinoids.
* Male example: Doug from ''FletcherApts'' who also has PuppyDogEyes at times.
* The title characters in ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'', though only Ozy's are only obvious when he's talking) as well as several others. Somewhat [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] [[http://ozyandmillie.org/2000/10/22/ozy-and-millie-498/ here.]]
* The art style of ''Webcomic/QueenOfWands'' has fangs as standard. On Angela they are pretty cute, though.
* Numerous ''{{Earthsong}}'' character have these.
* Molly in ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' manages to be very cute even with fangs on the end of her snout.
* Florence from ''{{Webcomic/Freefall}}'', a genetically engineered Bowman's Wolf, has fangs, but they only show up when she smiles. The effect is usually unfortunate.
* Rufus and Melika in ''{{Terinu}}'' have fangs as well, being anthropomorphic fox aliens. Said fangs are usually just cute, at least until they get ''pissed off''.
* Skadi, from the eponymous webcomic, sports one of these.
* Nina Delacroix from ''EerieCuties''.
* Eve of ''{{Webcomic/Bibliography}}'' has these.
* The entire cast of ''{{Femmegasm}}''.
* Fox Maharassa, [[ChivalrousPervert playful rake]] from ''BoyMeetsBoy'', FriendlyHostility, and OtherPeoplesBusiness. They only appear when he [[CheshireCatGrin grins]], but they're infinitely charming to say the least. As a pastry chef in the latter comic exclaims with a dreamy sigh, "It's like he hugs you with his smile~"
* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}''
** Most trolls have pointy teeth, but [[FurryFandom Nepeta]] is really the only one who manages to make them look utterly ''adorable''.
** [[TheWoobie Tavros]], at one point, is shown curled up against the wall, sleeping, with his fangs protruding from his smile. Since Tavros is incredibly timid and the teeth of trolls in his social caste are supposed to be blunt (after this is established, the other lowbloods, especially Karkat, are drawn with rounded teeth(no he isn't)), the only explanation is that it was to make him cuter.
* The Jagers of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' appear to have these... until they [[SlasherSmile open their mouths]].
* The unamed assassin who kidnaps Ivan in ''{{Webcomic/Oglaf}}''.
** Justified later when she turns out to be a vampire. Her name is Navaan.
* Happens occasionally in ''Webcomic/VGCats'', being as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the main characters are, obviously, cats]].
* ''ElfBlood'''s spirit incarna tend to have these if their spirits correspond to some sort of predatory animal. Notable examples include Carlita Delacroix (Cat) and Fliss and Shanna Whittle (Foxes).
* Yoon Song from ''Webcomic/WelcomeToRoom305''.
* Some of the characters in ''Webcomic/TheCyantianChronicles'', particularly Quinn, Sheana, and the fox princesses.
* In MoonCrest24 they look cool on Drake, but they're more adorable than menacing on Derek.
* With [[WorldOfFunnyAnimals everyone]] in Webcomic/CommanderKitty being a FunnyAnimal, these are pretty common. Even BigBad [[MixAndMatchCritters Zenith]] [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/12/12/nothing-to-see-here/ has them]].
* Secret from ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' has a pair - they're normally hidden, but when she's stressed or using her Abyssal powers, they emerge.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* At the SuperHeroSchool [[WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] there are several: Paige (a were-catgirl), Carmilla (mostly demon), Tennyo (too complicated to explain here). Tennyo's been told several times that her fangs are 'cute'.
* JustForFun/TropeTan has one.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Green Puppy from ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'' has fangs.
* Beast Boy of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', has one among his lower teeth, protruding from his mouth at all times to add to his unconventional cuteness and underline his animal status. Curiously, he tends to carry it over in all of his forms -- even when they don't even have teeth. His [[ComicBook/TeenTitans comic book version]] initially lacked this, but eventually he was redesigned (though at least they had the decency to do so in-story) with the fang intact [[RetCanon due to the show]].
* Mouse from ''ReBoot''. The fact that she has fangs is mentioned by other characters but never explained. In the end, they do indeed appear to be there solely to make her seem more dangerous.
* ''{{WesternAnimation/X-Men Evolution}}'' gives the very dangerous Mystique fangs, as well as her less dangerous son Nightcrawler. In Nightcrawler's case this is true to the comics. In Mystique's... well, [[VoluntaryShapeshifting she can have whatever appearance she pleases]].
* Both Chowder and Panini in ''{{Chowder}}'' have them. {{Word of God}} is they're of the same species (Rabbit-bear-cat thing...).
* Yumi in ''HiHiPuffyAmiYumi''.
* Arguably most of the {{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}, especially Lexington and Angela. And of course Elisa when she was briefly a gargoyle. Elisa's especially were ''very'' cute.
* Rintoo and Lulu from ''NiHaoKaiLan''.
* Loopy in one episode got these in ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam!''.
* Several characters in ''{{WesternAnimation/Wakfu}}''. Its heavily {{Animesque}} art style gives everyone exaggerated canines, even on non-cutesy characters such as older men.
* ''{{Humf}}''. All the male furry things, including the title character.
* Anakonda from ''WesternAnimation/Xyber9NewDawn'' has these, unless she's pissed off and hissing at someone, then they're far more creepy than cute.
* Marceline from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. She's a vampire, after all.
* The entire Dingo family from ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'', but Shifty is by far the cutest.
* Scardey Bat on ''RubyGloom''.
* Samy on ''{{Jimmy Two-Shoes}}''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''
** Spike, though they aren't always visible.
** Discord's single fang is arguably cute too. [[spoiler:Stops being arguably after his HeelFaceTurn, especially when he genuinely smiles.]]
** Similarly, [[spoiler: Queen Chrysalis]] and her [[spoiler: changelings]].
** What do you mean, Nightmare Moon's fangs [[FangsAreEvil don't count]]?
** The bats seen in the show have fangs.
** Fluttershy gets them when Twilight's spell turns her into a cross between a pony and a vampire fruit bat. Even after the spell is reversed, the fangs emerge when she smiles at the end of the episode.
* Most of the [[{{Catfolk}} Cats]] from ''{{WesternAnimation/Thundercats 2011}}'', especially [[CuteKitten Wilykit and Wilykat]]. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Sabertooth Grune, who just has one really big one because he tore out the other to use as an ImprovisedWeapon.
* Sylvester the Cat gets these in ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow''.
* FelixTheCat, one of the oldest examples.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* [[CuteKitten Everything's cuter with kittycats!]]
* Known as "yaeba", "double tooth", in Japan; where it is fairly common, and typically considered cute and attractive. Due to crowding resulting from small, narrow jawbones, one or more canine teeth are pushed forward of the rest of the teeth. Many believe it to be the origin of the "{{Catgirl}}" look. See the [[http://yaebasuperstar.blog123.fc2.com/blog-entry-91.html Yaeba Superstar]] page for more examples. As western-style dentistry becomes more popular, straightening teeth and removing yaeba is also becoming more common.
** Some Japanese girls actually ''[[http://www.odditycentral.com/funny/tokyo-dental-salon-specializes-in-giving-girls-crooked-teeth.html pay]]'' to have Yaeba artificially installed.
** There are [[http://www.jlist.com/product/SEA476 temporary ones]] too.
* Most famously, [[http://www.google.com/search?q=avril+lavigne+fangs&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7ACAW&biw=1280&bih=763&prmd=imvnso&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=7s6XTvefAZGbiQeIibCsAg&ved=0CCMQsAQ Avril Lavigne]], which has led to humorous fan speculation that she may in fact be a vampire.
** Unfortunately, they reportedly made her self-conscious, so she allegedly had them [[http://www.boston.com/ae/celebrity/articles/2008/07/25/avril_lavignes_vampire_teeth/ shaved]], to the everlasting regret of fans of hers for whom her fangs were part of her appeal.
* Speaking of [[Film/InterviewWithTheVampire vampires]], Creator/KirstenDunst has [[http://www.domingodecine.es/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/kirsten_dunst_fangs.jpg an adorable pair of fangs]] too.

* In the book, [[Film/HarryPotter Hermione Granger]] is more of an incisor girl, but the trope definitely applies to her actress, Emma Watson.
* [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_let038LiBC1qb9pimo1_1280.jpg Zachary]] [[http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e263/sarahnumberone/laugh2.jpg Quinto]]
* [[Creator/AkiToyosaki Aki]] [[http://www.poverty.jeez.jp/loda/img/iyan06232.jpg Toyosaki]].
* Ferrets and similar species have canine teeth which often protrude over their lower lips.
* [[http://www.last.fm/music/George+Harrison/+images/11878713 George]] [[http://www.last.fm/music/George+Harrison/+images/186227 Harrison]]
* [[http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5412/bd3i.jpg Benny Davis]] from Axis of Awesome.
* [[Creator/RickyGervais Ricky Gervais]].
* {{Jewel}} is [[http://www.bitchingbeauty.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/jewelteeth3.jpg known for this]].
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musk_deer Male musk deer]] possess surprisingly large fangs, with which they fight each other for mates and defend themselves from predators. Being [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter tiny deer]], this is automatically infinitely cuter than it has any right to be.
** Likewise water deer, as [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-lovable-animals-you-didnt-know-are-secretly-terrifying/ this article]] on ''Cracked'' shows.
** And [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tufted_deer tufted deer]].
