->''"Never tangle with anything that's got [[TropeNamer more teeth than the entire Osmond family]]."''
-->-- '''Arnold Rimmer''', ''Series/RedDwarf'', "Polymorph".

Monsters with a huge number of teeth.

This is a simple and common trope, playing on a natural fear of toothy predators. There are three common kinds of teeth you will see on a big scary thing: flat, triangular shark-teeth; conical teeth similar to those of crocodiles; or ridiculously pointy needle teeth like a deep-sea fish. The monster's mouth will often be so crammed with teeth that half of them should break off with every bite. The teeth are usually all of the same type. Despite being a common animal trait in real life, human characters often make use of this trope, and when doing so is often used to mark a character with, well, ''monster''-like behavior, especially if it involves or is implied to involve murder in a very predatory sense.

Also see {{Phlegmings}} -- the lines of drool often seen between the teeth. When the teeth are arranged in a ring rather than opposing jawlines, that's a LampreyMouth. ''Beware'' VaginaDentata. Stop by CheshireCatGrin for a less toothy but still creepy variation. Often found in conjunction with ThreateningShark and NeverSmileAtACrocodile, and occasionally followed by PalatePropping.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Krory the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent quasi-vampire]] Exorcist of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' may look like he has CuteLittleFangs when his mouth is closed (and that only in the manga), but when he moves his lips, the result is a distinctly inhuman array of shark/crocodile-like fangs.
* Grell Sutcliff the {{Shinigami}} from ''BlackButler'' doesn't seem to have a greater than human amount of teeth, but his/her teeth ''are'' all fangs, which isn't the case for the other shinigami or even the demons seen in the series.
* [[http://digimon.wikia.com/wiki/Tokomon Tokomon]] of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', in an unexpected way given it's coming from an otherwise RidiculouslyCuteCritter. Tokomon's teeth are a direct nod to the Digimon virtual pets that the show was based on. All the child Digimon from the virtual pet keychains were adorable little monsters that revealed incongruous amounts of pixelated teeth when they ate or got mad at their owners.
** The {{Tamagotchi}} virtual pets that preceded Digimon did the same thing with their young forms.
* The second form of the [[EnemyWithout berserked defense program]] in ''[[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's]]'', which had two massive heads filled with massive, pointy teeth.
* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is absolutely full of these. It's no wonder that ''Berserk'''s creator, Kentaro Miura, takes so long to release chapters when he has to draw each and every single tooth on pages full of literally ''dozens'' of creatures.
* Vampires in ''{{Hellsing}}'' (especially the OVA and Manga) generally have teeth like sharks...it is only when Alucard fully activates the Cromwell Initiative and [[spoiler:essentially becomes an ''EldritchAbomination'']] that this trope really starts getting fulfilled. A lot.
** And the HUMANS too. Please see any chapter where [[BadassPreacher Father Anderson]] is [[LargeHam doing what he does best]]. Or when the Major...talks.
* Kamineko in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' looks sweet, until the point he rocks the top of his head back to reveal he has [[http://www.svenax.net/files/images/Azumanga_Daioh_01_076_0001_0.jpg dentition that makes bear traps look sick...]]
* Some of the homunculi in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Gluttony, when in attack mode, [[http://images.wikia.com/fma/images/3/3c/Brotherhood24.jpg reveals a hippopotamus-like mouth with extra rows of teeth inside]], Greed and Sloth have sharklike teeth, and Pride's true form consists entirely of eyes, teeth, and LivingShadow.
* The titular warriors from ''{{Claymore}}'' gain these when they're dangerously close to liberating their powers enough to become demons.
* The Tsuyoshi family in GreatTeacherOnizuka -- those short friendly people with shark teeth.
* The Misago from ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou'' has lots of sharp carnivorous teeth. She's good and kind-hearted and only uses them to eat fish, but most people freak out after seeing her scary dentition.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Kurama's mouth was set in a permanent snarl revealing a massive number of teeth larger than the titular character. [[spoiler: However, such a trait has faded with Kurama's CharacterDevelopment, and his teeth now resemble what they should-a giant fox's.]] At times, the only thing that can be seen of the demon are two red eyes and gleaming teeth. Finally, it appears to be common for Hidden Mist shinobi to file their teeth to resemble a shark's, though this may be restricted to Seven Swordsmen and their aspirants. Then again, given the [[LittleBitBeastly other sharklike traits]] of some of those characters, it's possible that their teeth are naturally that way.
** [[spoiler: The [[EldritchAbomination Ten-Tail's]] first form is presented with a huge mouth with dozens of spikey, sharp teeth for a murderous GlasgowGrin.]]
* ''{{Psyren}}'': Ash from the W.I.S.E. squad Scourge.
* Holo in ''SpiceAndWolf'' gets these in mid-transformation from human form to a giant wolf. It's pretty disturbing to see them on such a cute face.
* Ryuk from ''Manga/DeathNote'' has these, along with a permanent SlasherSmile.
* Neko Musume of ''Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro'' may have inspired Kamineko above, because let's be honest, ''cat teeth are not like that''. Yikes.
* Viral from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', who is part shark and part feline.
* ''HanakoAndTheTerrorOfAllegory'' gives us the Slit-Mouth Woman. Although she has a fairly normal tooth-to-mouth ratio, she's got [[NightmareFace quite a bit of mouth]].
* Ratman of...well, ''Manga/{{Ratman}}'' does this when he gets angry or excited. Normally, he can function fine with his mouth closed, and it looks just like a helmet. But when he opens it for whatever reason, its enough to give one of his friends recurring nightmares.
* In ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'', one of Christopher Shoulder's most distinguishing features is that his mouth is filled with what appear to be shark teeth. Combined with his [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] and [[AwesomeAnachronisticApparel archaic mode of dress]], most people assume that he's some sort of vampire.
* Hiruma in ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' and his mouth full of fangs. It's part of his SpikesOfVillainy look.
* Tier Harribel from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''.
** [[spoiler:Averted, since those teeth were just a part of Harribel's hollow mask. When she uses her [[SuperMode Resurrección]], the mask vanishes and her now visible mouth and teeth are clearly normal.]]
** Well, there's [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090314074548/bleach/en/images/b/bc/Di_Roy%27s_Hierro..jpg Di Roy Rinker]], and his square-sawed top row of teeth...
* Lots and lots of flesh rending teeth appear to be the most defining characteristic for the mysterious invading {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in [[http://mangafox.me/manga/hakaijuu/ "Hakaijuu"]]. Special mention goes to the one that not only has numerous [[http://mangafox.me/manga/hakaijuu/v01/c002/45.html teeth-studded mandibles]] but hundreds of three-fingered hands with [[http://mangafox.me/manga/hakaijuu/v01/c001/45.html smaller mouths in each finger tip]] that it uses to strip the flesh from unlucky highschool students.
* Baikinman (and by default, his brothers Aokinman and Akakinman) from ''{{Franchise/Anpanman}}''. [[http://www.rubberslug.com/img_show.aspx?ImageID=279666&X=530&Section=Item Teeth should not begin to look like that.]] His teeth are so prominent that they actually ''disort'' into shapes to form vowels when he speaks! Baikinman's an alien, so there's at least a bit of justification. Females of his species don't have this style of teeth, and two other males of the species (Baikinsennin and Mushibaikinman) have different looking teeth (Baikinsennin's are normal teeth, and Mushibaikinman's are simular to Baikinman's, but he only has five forming his mouth).
* The titular monsters of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' are all human-like save for some odd deformities (disproportionate limbs, lack of skin), but more importantly [[http://i40.tinypic.com/24msriw.jpg mouths full of square incisors]].
* Masakaki from ''Anime/CControl'' gets shark teeth whenever he is excited about something evil happening. Appropriate too, since he's a ''loan shark''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Parallax from the ''GreenLantern'' continuity has a few sets of these, forming the shape of the Sinestro Corps symbol with his throat as the hole. It's freakier looking than it sounds. Also a few Sinestro Corpsmen themselves, including Tri-Eye, who has three wide-ass mouths and teeth on the edges of all three faces, and Maash, who has three entire heads piled on top of each other.
* The Corinthian in ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. Though his eye-teeth are usually just straight, smaller copies of the teeth in his mouth, spinoffs and fanart tend to make them pointed. Also Azazel -- a lord of hell who appears as a black void filled with eyes and disembodied teeth.
* Isz, especially black Isz, from ''TheMaxx''.
* Some images of the SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker show his (non-pointy) teeth as being so long, it looks as if the chemical he'd gotten dumped in must've given him ever-growing dentition like a rodent's, as well as weird coloration. This is noticeable in Tim Sale's art (ComicBook/TheLongHalloween and Dark Victory in particular), though certain panels exagerate this more than others. [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/4/46/Tim_Sale_Joker_01.jpg Here's a noticeable example.]]
* The alien symbiotes from ''{{Spider-Man}}''. Spidey himself didn't get this effect when he was wearing the black suit, but Venom, Carnage and basically anyone else "wearing" a symbiote is going to develop these.
** Interesting note: ComicBook/{{Venom}} didn't start out with this either. Todd [=McFarlane=] originally drew him with a mouth that was toothy, but mostly human-looking (at least as much as the Joker's). Then Erik Larsen, who hated the character, was assigned to draw him, and started giving him a drooling monster mouth and an OverlyLongTongue, supposedly to avoid getting bored.
** Most "good" symbiotes don't have the mouth. If they develop one, [[OhCrap run]].
* In ''The Orc's Treasure,'' by Kevin J Anderson, all Orcs are distinguished by the impossible overabundance of pointy teeth. Many of them have teeth protruding through parts of their lips or cheeks.
* ''ComicBook/TheDarkness''
* Creator/PhilFoglio is fond of this trope in his artwork.
** In the ''ComicBook/MythAdventures'' comics he depicts Aahz this way. Even in the novels, Aahz is described more than once as ''dropping'' his smile when he wants to put people at ease.
** ''XXXenophile'' is good for teeth. And [[CuteMonsterGirl Cute Monster Girls]].
** The grins the Jägermonsters (and occasionally some of the Sparks) have in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''
* Elves from ''ComicBook/{{Amulet}}''. When their mouth is closed it's no big deal, but when they open it to eat something, ''brrrrr!''
* Any time RobLiefeld draws someone grimacing, [[http://www.progressiveboink.com/2012/4/21/2960757/robliefeld3 as seen here:]] "How many teeth are in a mouth? Like a billion, right? I’ll just draw a billion, all the same size and shape."
** In the same article, example 27, Liefeld makes the opposite, but equally weird mistake: He somehow draws the Red Skull, a villain whose entire motif is that his head ''is a human skull'', with only 17 teeth in the entire mouth, all of them incisors.
* Max of SamAndMax stands out from other fictional rabbits by way of his pointy teeth.
* Evil Ernie
* An unusual example: FrankMiller in his more recent projects such as ''SinCity'' and ''Holy Terror'' has characters being punched in the jaw, resulting in losing copious numbers of teeth. Which evidently grow back almost instantly; if someone gets punched more than once, he'll lose more teeth than he had in his mouth originally.
* The Dominators, a humanoid alien race from DCComics, are distinguished by an abundance of long, sharp teeth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* The anglerfish in ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. Also the sharks, although they're trying to [[CarnivoreConfusion go vegan]].
* The Cheshire Cat from ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' was originally going to have these, but they were later changed.
* The robotic shark from ''Film/JamesAndTheGiantPeach''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The titular Xenomorphs from the ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series had enough teeth to outfit a ''second, smaller mouth''. Their appearance was all the more nightmarish for having a variety of different teeth, [[UncannyValley looking almost like a fanged human.]]
* In ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'' [[spoiler:the Deacon that bursts out of the Engineer's chest at the end]] has a jaw very much like a Goblin Shark's.
* The Sarlaac in ''StarWars''
* The Kraken in ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''.
* The titular creatures in ''Film/TheDeadlySpawn'' have so many teeth that rows of them are still outside the mouth when it is closed.
* The vampires in ''Film/FrightNight'' tend to have this, especially during the third part of their metamorphosis.
* The Reapers from ''Film/BladeII'' don't necessarily have ''more'' teeth than a human being, but their odd placement sure makes it look that way.
* ''Vamp'' takes it [[UpToEleven to another level]].
* Played with in ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', whose version of Nightcrawler had a mouthful of fangs that were something between humanlike and sharklike, rather than merely pointed eyeteeth as in the comics. Fortunately Nighty's a pretty cool guy [[spoiler:when he's not under mind control]].
* In the ''{{Coneheads}}'' movie, Beldar demonstrated how many teeth coneheads have when he went to the dentist to get them capped... ''all four rows of them''. And he can open his mouth ''reeeeeeally'' wide.
* The titular creatures in ''{{Critters}}'' are [[http://www.legendsofhorror.org/images/critters/critters.jpg giant furballs with teeth]].
* Fizzgig from ''Film/TheDarkCrystal'' is a little furball who looks innocent until he opens his mouth, and then he becomes mostly teeth.
* Shark teeth aplenty in the monsters from ''Film/{{Feast}}''. [[spoiler: Particularly at the end of the first movie, where you can actually see how many of them Heroine #2 smashes out with a rifle butt.]]
* One of the ''V. rex'' dinosaurs in Peter Jackson's ''Film/KingKong'' remake had a distorted upper jaw that made room for still more gigantic teeth, probably due to some old facial injury.
* John Carpenter's ''Film/{{The Thing|1982}}''. Only sometimes, since it's a consumate shapeshifter, so it only piled on the teeth when it needed to attack someone.
* The title vampire character ''CountYorga'', though oddly when he bites his victims he only leaves the usual tiny pinprick bites.
* "Jeff", the 600 foot alien worm from ''MenInBlackII'' who lives in New York's subway stations and makes his first appearance by munching on one of the subway trains.
** Boris the Animal in ''MenInBlackIII''.
* The [[http://materialisticboy.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/alice-in-wonderland-trailer.jpg Cheshire Cat]] from Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland''.
** The Bandersnatch from the same movie.
* The Sugarplum Fairy in ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods''. Combines with NestedMouths.
* The aliens in ''Film/AttackTheBlock''.
* In ''Film/DeepRising'' the creatures have to open wide for this to be really noticeable, but when they do it's quite scary. [[spoiler:The primary mouth is also completely littered with teeth.]]
* The Lubb-Lubbs in ''Film/MomAndDadSaveTheWorld'' are cute, mushroom-like creatures who turn out to have a huge mouth filled with ''nasty pointy teeth''... and another mouth, also filled with ''nasty pointy teeth''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Boomer the hammerhead shark from ''Literature/WhosAfraidOfBoomer''.
* {{Sandworm}}s from ''Literature/{{Dune}}''
* The Chtorran worms in David Garrold's ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' novels may have been a homage to the sandworms of ''Dune''.
* Said word-for-word in the first ''Literature/CalLeandros'' book, though Cal is describing Robin, who, though nonhuman, has the normal amount of teeth.
* WilliamSleator's novel ''Literature/{{Singularity}}'' had a creature coming through a PortalPool from another universe. It was visible from this universe long before it arrived, and the only part of it that was visible was its huge mouthful of teeth. The main character, in fact, spent a whole year waiting for the creature to arrive, knowing only its toothy appearance.
* The titular ClockRoaches in Stephen King's ''TheLangoliers''. The TV version depicted them ([[SpecialEffectsFailure poorly]]) with three rows of alternately rotating teeth, like a cross between an excavation drill and PacMan.
* ''Literature/RiftersTrilogy'' contains deep-sea fish like this, but their teeth are so brittle that when one tries to bite a person's arm off, the teeth shatter.
* Agrajag in ''Literature/LifeTheUniverseAndEverything'' has a patchwork body and a vast array of teeth. {{Lampshade}}d, in that Agrajag's excessive and deliberately unpleasant teeth don't all quite fit nicely into his mouth, resulting in them lacerating his lips and mouth. There are some sticky black plasters covering the nastier wounds.
* The Witches in the children's series 'TheDoomspellTrilogy' have four jaws each full of nasty sharp pointy teeth. (For an artist's impression, see the example in the New Media category.) They were also full of symbiotic spiders.
* ''S. Petersen's Field Guide to Cthulhu Monsters'' is packed with teeth. Big, nasty teeth! Let's see who's the champ in the dental department, shall we?
** The byakhee has back-pointing narrow fangs like a snake's, and plenty of 'em.
** The Deep One's teeth are crocodile-like, extra-sharp, and appear to come in multiple rows.
** The dhole's teeth are rooted in several extensible jaw-like structures, and are about as big as the human silhouette on the size-comparison diagram. The ''teeth'', not the jaw-like structures.
** The flying polyp has two mouths of crocodile-type teeth. At least, two mouths visible in the picture. The one you encounter may have more.
** The formless spawn has several rows of oversized teeth, which best resemble human incisors. Which is kinda creepy in itself.
** The Hound of Tindalos has a lot of crocodilish teeth, but should probably be disqualified because it's the tongue you really have to worry about.
** The Servitor of the Outer Gods' mouth would look good on a deep-sea angler.
** ''Bzzzt!'' Sorry, Mr. Shoggoth, you should've submitted a pic where you had lots of ''teeth'', not lots of eyes. Better send that one in to a different contest.
** Shub-Niggurath has a half-dozen mouths of crocodile teeth showing, presumably with more on the back. If she has a back. Maybe this ''is'' her back in the pic. Who can tell?
** Ghouls, ghasts, hunting horrors, shantaks and Ithaqua get consolation prizes. Not bad teeth, guys, but not nearly enough to hold your own against such tough competitors.
** Lots of other oogey-boogeys in that book, but whatever the heck they've got, it sure ain't teeth.
** And the winner is ... the Dhole! Not least because it's probably eaten most of the other contestants by now.
* Phil Foglio's covers for the Donning-Starblaze illustrated editions of the ''Literature/MythAdventures'' books depict Aahz this way. Even in the novels, Aahz is described more than once as ''dropping'' his smile when he wants to put people at ease.
* The Taxxons from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' have, among other nasty features, a LampreyMouth.
* In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'' one of the things the post office sign instructs you not to ask about are "Huje Green Things With Teeth," possibly a NoodleIncident as none ever actually show up here. Later, Anghammarad, a twenty-thousand-year-old golem, remembers that in his day it was "Do Not Ask Us About Saber-Tooth Tigers, Tar Pits, Huge Green Things With Teeth, Or The Goddess Czol." When asked "you had huge green things with teeth back then?" he answers "Bigger. Greener. More Teeth."
* When Magicians (read: Demon Summoners) in David Eddings' ''{{Belgariad}}'' and ''{{Malloreon}}'' summon their demons, they try to outdo each other by making their demons look as menacing as possible. One common area of embellishment is in the mouth, where they try to cram as many teeth as possible inside. It should also be noted that these imaginary forms are also the way they keep demons under control. A demon in his (uncontrollable) true form is terrifying in itself, but for other reasons.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Polymorph in ''Series/RedDwarf'', a spoof of the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorphs]]. The Polymorph, a shapeshifting EmotionEater, assumed the form of a monster from one of Lister's nightmares, which Rimmer fittingly describes as an "8-foot, armor-plated, alien killing machine".
* The ''{{Beetleborgs}}'' episode Buggin Out featured a gnat-like monster named Kombat Gnat who had several teeth like this and the power to shrink. This particular episode was a satire of David Cronenberg's remake of ''The Fly''. Flabber brings a drawing of a teleportation device to life and he tests it out. Kombat Gnat flies into the machine and their dna gets merged. This causes Flabber to slowly turn into Kombat Gnat -- starting out with cute little vampiric fangs, then developing antennae and a row of razor sharp teeth like this.
* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** Prisoner Zero had a mouth like a [[http://ocean.nationalgeographic.com/ocean/photos/deep-sea-creatures/#/deep-sea09-viper-fish_18169_600x450.jpg viper fish]] in its natural form. And these teeth are sometimes visible in its human mouths.
** The vampires in "Vampires in Venice".
** The new-series model of Cybermats. Yet they're adorable.
* TheLangoliers (again).
* The Leviathans on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', whenever they [[GameFace reveal their "true" face]]. Essentially their entire head is occupied by mouth.
* An interstitial on MTV2 featured a hoard of superhero parodies, including Too Many Teeth Man, whose power is obvious.
* An episode of ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'' featured a mystical black void guarded by a Beast that was nothing but a giant champing set of teeth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Manticores. Those things have ''three rows'' of metal teeth. Fortunately they don't exist. [[ParanoiaFuel What was that sound?]]
* In traditional Eastern European Vampire folklore, vampires tend to have double rows of razor-sharp, strong-as-iron teeth used for chewing through wood, soil, flesh, bone, and organs. Some just have hollow, sharp tongues, and few don't have anything sharp in their mouths, and take blood magically without even physically puncturing the victim's body.
* Some versions of the Japanese urban legend the Kuchisake-Onna have her GlasgowGrin full of lots and lots of sharp, pointy teeth.

* Fuel your nightmares with this [[http://pics.livejournal.com/wholesomedick/pic/0000dskg picture]]. (The teeth are actually from [[http://www.soularchive.jp/SC3/img/wp/aby1024.jpg Abyss]] of [[SoulSeries Soul Calibur III]].)
* [[http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o247/Arcalane/toothy-rocks.jpg These toothy fellas]] are terrifying for some and [[UglyCute adorable]] for others.
* Red from ''Roleplay/RubyQuest'' looks quite normal... until he opens his mouth to laugh, and just keeps opening it ''wider'' and ''wider''...
* [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/60436 Smile.dog's]] [[SlasherSmile smile]] has this many teeth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinballs]]
* In ''VideoGame/PinballDreams 2'', the robots in "Revenge of the Robot Warriors" all have this
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** The Tyranids, partly inspired by the Xenomorphs from ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'', have ridiculous numbers of teeth, somewhere between the dinosaur type and the needle type.
** Tyranid Rippers seem to be composed of ''nothing but teeth''. The basically unusable nature of the teeth is justified because they ''are'' nothing but weapons - Tyranid battle organisms do not have digestive systems, and are expected to simply throw themselves into pits of digestive juices after the battle. Assuming they survive, of course.
** Then you have the Squigs of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' Fantasy (as well as 40k, though far less prominent). Ironically, Squigs are not only edible themselves, but described as delicious -- moist and flavorsome, combining the taste of smoked ham with the lightness of young chicken. One breed of Squig is actually known as the "facebiter/face-eater squig". A common orc contest of toughness and bravery has the Orcs try to eat a live squig, without using their hands, before it eats them. According to some early 40k sources, the Squigs are actually Tyranids created with Ork base genetic material; the Orks found the Squigs and adopted them into their culture sensing their inherent "Orky" nature. This was forgotten, though it may serve as the ultimate foundation for the Biovores and their rumored nature as Ork gene-infused Tyranids.
** Then there are the Orcs/Orks, who in either setting use "teef" as money. Teef are acquired by either using your own, or ripping out someone else's. Don't worry, they grow back. In the 40k fluff, there are various "tribes" of Orks that have different genetic quirks (usable in game through several fan expansions). One of them is the Bad Moonz, who not only have more teeth than average but also regrow them at an increased rate. As such, they're they richest Orks around and always have the most snazz.
** Chaos' LegionsOfHell just wouldn't be proper daemons if some of them didn't have more teeth than a dentition textbook, usually sticking out at odd and possibly noneuclidean angles.
* ''MagicTheGathering'' has an entire creature type of toothy monsters called Atogs. [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=31825 Here's one example]].
** [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=146010 Not that they're the only creatures that qualify.]]
* ''DungeonsAndDragons''
** The supplement ''Tome of Magic'' contains the Tooth Beast: essentially a bear literally coated in teeth. Rather than skin, it has gums. [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/ToMagic_Gallery/96076.jpg See it here.]] It has teeth for ''eyes'', and is wrong.
** [[http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/ToMagic_Gallery/96039.jpg Dahlver-Nar's Manifestation]]. Again, gums for skin and teeth everywhere... ''except'' the mouth.
** The Gibbering Mouther is basically an ooze made out of goo, eyeballs, and mouths with sharp teeth. Lots and lots and lots of teeth.
** And its big brother the Squamous Spewer, which is made of ''dragon'' eyes and teeth.
** Beholders: look at those teeth! http://www.giantbomb.com/dungeons-dragons/62-167/
** ''Dungeons and Dragons: Book of Vile Darkness'' - The Whirlwind of Teeth. The caster can create an opaque area of swirling energy taking the form of roaring, screeching mouths full of teeth
** The 3.5 Edition ''Monster Manual IV'' introduces the Fang Golem, a construct made entirely from teeth and fangs of various animals. It resembles a four-legged beast covered in ivory spikes, with a whirling tunnel of pointy death for a mouth.
** Lunar dragons in ''DragonMech'' sport enormous toothy maws.
* The Legion of Everblight from ''Hordes'' in the ''IronKingdoms'' setting. It has warbeasts with no eyes, ears or noses. Just mouths full of large, sharp teeth.
* One adventure for TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}} had a table of descriptions for the various robots. For the Doberbot, the entry first lists the weapon, 16" long teeth, then under description: "You don't know, all you see are the teeth."
** Was a possible ShoutOut to [[WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal the monster in the Den segment of Heavy Metal.]]
* In the TabletopGame/ScarredLands, one of the fallen titans was Gaurak the Glutton - an obese and monstrously ravenous deity who was said to have devoured everything on the once verdant moon. After his defeat by the titan's children, the gods, every one of his hundreds of teeth were pulled out and thrown across the destroyed world, taking on the form of mountains, obelisks, and trees which currently taint the surrounding land.

* ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'': "Shoot anything with teeth bigger than its face!"
* Pretty much every monster in the Amiga/Atari/C64/MS-DOS game ''VideoGame/WeirdDreams'' had lots and lots of very large teeth. According to TheOtherWiki, the author had a dental phobia.
* As if the entire concept of ''{{X-Com}}'''s [[DemonicSpiders Chryssalids]] aren't nightmarish enough, someone decided to give their research entry images permanent, toothy smiles.
* Decarabia from ''CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow''. Imagine a starfish's hungry mouth staring straight at you. Imagine that mouth lined with razor-sharp teeth. Now, imagine said starfish hurtling at you at approximately 80 MPH.
* The Rifle Demons in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series have mouths full of large, pointy, and perpetually visible teeth. They tend to get a lot of emphasis in [[SuperMovePortraitAttack their team attack portraits]].
* Baraka from ''VideoGame/MortalKombat2'' has a mouth full of pointy teeth, as do other Tarkatan. His teeth in his first appearance were acryllic nails glued to a cheap Nosferatu mask.
** From the [[MortalKombat same series]], Mileena, a female ninja with a bombshell body [[{{Butterface}} ruined by a mouth with more teeth than a school of piranha.]] This is because she's a deformed clone of Kitana fused with Tarkatan essence.

* The Gaets in ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' are easily among the toothiest monsters in the ''TalesSeries'', all of their various species having a huge mouthful of large, perpetually visible teeth of either the shark-like triangular or pointy needle variety.
* [[http://www.wowwiki.com/File:Yoggsaron.jpg Yogg-Saron]], one of the Old Gods from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
* Just in case you didn't figure out Chancellor Cole was an EvilChancellor before then in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', the last you see of him before he explicitly outs himself as one is him flashing an evil grin full of pointed, shark-like teeth.
* The [[EldritchAbomination Thresher Maws]] in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are described in the Codex as "abominations of tentacles and teeth." They're even ''scarier''.
** The yahg, who are clearly not a species to mess with despite only appearing twice (counting [=DLC=]). The first one you meet is [[spoiler: the Shadow Broker.]] Shepard calls attention to this in the third game.
** Turians - somewhat-reptilian humanoids with exoskeletons and bony spikes sticking out of their bodies - are an unusual generally-benevolent example. (Probably scared the bejeezus out of the poor humans who first encountered them in the [[WeComeInPeaceShootToKill First Contact War]], though.)
* Fuzzles from ''OddWorld''. They start out looking tiny cute little furballs, until they go into attack mode where they become rabid and reveal their mouth filled to the brim with razor sharp teeth.
* The [[EldritchAbomination Dragon God]] from ''DemonsSouls'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=dnEzkbdTa0I#t=129s needs a second mouth to contain all his teeth.]]
** ''DarkSouls'', its SpiritualSuccessor, gives us this [[http://i54.tinypic.com/21y15w.jpg lovely beast]], which seems to be less "Monster with lots of teeth" and more "Teeth with a hint of monster." It's called "the Gaping Dragon" and it's basically a ''bona fide'' dragon whose entire upper torso has been transformed into a gigantic mouth, so consuming is its HorrorHunger.
* The Malboros from the ''FinalFantasy'' series are giant plants with this many teeth, [[ExtraEyes almost as many eyes]], and CombatTentacles. Neither of which is their true power that makes them deadly; the fact that they exhale choking, poisonous gas (which may or may not be a way nastier, weaponized form of tobacco smoke) with their signature Bad Breath attack is.
* The Garmraid in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX'' can attach it's shoulder guards to it's fists, then tossing a ''RocketPunch'' with teeth.
** One upped by [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Alfimi's Persoenlichkeit]] in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration 2nd Original Generation.]]'' [[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/441/hownice.jpg/ It is not pretty to see.]]
** The Shiseiten, the Epilogue Boss from ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Third Super Robot Wars: Jigoku-Hen]]'', is a six-mouthed skeletal beast with tons of sharp fangs.
* The Ultimate Chimera in VideoGame/{{Mother 3}} is a devilish-looking beast that's practically a walking set of huge, pointed teeth, it having a massive maw that runs almost the length of its whole body. One chomp from it is enough to do the party in immediately, without even giving them a chance to battle it proper.
* Night Of Wallachia from ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' has a lot of extremely sharp teeth.
* The Hebby Repp and Sudo Neku dream eaters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'' have a mouthful of pointy triangular teeth, kept in a constant smile, though it's purely for cuteness. The Tyranto Rex, on the other hand, has a mouthful of perpetually visible fang-like teeth that make it look more then slightly intimidating.
* True Ogre from the ''{{Tekken}}'' series has a couple of fangs on his ''lips'', along with the set of fangs in his mouth, which are attached to gross, elongated gums. It's as if he has a mouth ''within'' a mouth.
* Demitri Maximoff from ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' has lots of sharp teeth, as prominently shown in the ''Night Warriors'' OVA.
* [[MadDoctor The Medic]] from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has a pretty intimidating grin.
* The Nosalis mutants in ''VideoGame/MetroLastLight'', redesigned from the first game, now have enormous mouths that dominate their whole faces and are filled to the brim with huge fangs. Their [[EyelessFace lack of visible eyes]] serves to further highlight their teeth.

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''
** The [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=349 yellow salamander]] from Chapter 16 had double rows of sharp fangs. Nightmare fuel, literally: [[spoiler:it appeared in a character's nightmare, and it symbolized the house fire that ''killed his entire family''.]]
** Coyote's etherial form is a mishmash of teeth, eyes and night sky.
** Zimmy; she's nominally human, but her teeth resemble a shark more than a person.
** Ominous connotations are averted by the friendliest [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=987 badger spirit]] you'll ever meet.
* Florence Ambrose of ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' has these, but she struggles to keep them hidden, as long as she remembers, since humans tend to react badly to them. Example: [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1700/fc01696.htm Snap!]]
* ''LookingForGroup'' has a [[http://www.lfgcomic.com/page/389 subterranean worm]] that has this in spades.
* Orcs in ''DominicDeegan'' have tusks and fanged maws, which becomes more obvious when they are pissed. Unusually, orcs are vegetarians, and the hard, pointed teeth are for cracking open the extremely tough root vegetables of their homeland.
* The Mihrrgoots from ''{{Spacetrawler}}'' have very wide mouths completely filled with sharp teeth.
* Werewolves in Webcomic/BloodyUrban have these, even in human form.
* Most [[OurTrollsAreDifferent Trolls]] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' have sharp and pointy teeth, but Feferi, having the highest blood type, [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004322 can be down right terrifying]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005227 When she shows all of them]], and, even though she's one of the [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething nicest]] [[GenkiGirl trolls]].
** There's also [[HandicappedBadass Terezi]] [[AmoralAttorney Pyrope]], who isn't so much unusual but stands out because she's almost ''always'' seen [[TheHyena grinning or cackling]] with her many rows of shark-like teeth on display.
** The [[EldritchAbomination Gods of the Furthest Ring]] are prone to this

* The aptly-named villain Megabyte from ''ReBoot''. [[http://starman-imaging.com/reboot/images111/megafrme1094a.jpg Hexadecimal, too.]]
* Ripjaws in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''.
* The Plutarkians from ''BikerMiceFromMars'' have teeth like this.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' once had a cutaway gag about this trope, featuring the Osmond family with buck teeth.
* A majority of monsters from ''CourageTheCowardlyDog'', notably the weremole and the giant alien worm from the episode "Tulip's worm". Even Courage ''himself,'' especially in the theme song.
* Every single monster from ''Mega Babies''.
* The bulldog from the classic Creator/TexAvery ''ChillyWilly'' cartoon "The Legend of Rockabye Point".
* ''{{Chowder}}'', in an episode of the TV series, in a horror moment that would make {{Flapjack}} proud.
* One of ''[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Sylvester the Cat]]'' shorts had him try to catch fish [[TooDumbToLive in piranha aquarium]]. After he gets out, he quips "nah, they're just skin and teeth", and the fish give him a CheshireCatGrin.
* The Joker in all his cartoon incarnations (''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', ''JusticeLeague'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''), so much so that when MarkHamill auditioned for the part in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', he commented in a Making Of video that the Joker seemed to be "all teeth".
* [[Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise Sky-byte's]] ''TransformersAnimated'' [[http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/4/47/Sky_Byte_by_BillForster.jpg version]], as seen in the ''Transformers Animated Allspark Almanac''. Terrified yet?
** The different version of him shown in ''Decepti-Con Job'' is far less horiffying.
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' brings us the Scraplets. Two feet tall... with mouths that make up about a third of that height. They make a sound like a chainsaw revving when they open their jaws. According to Bulkhead, they bite their way into a mechanoid and then eat them alive from the inside out.
* As it turns out, ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'''s Earl of Lemongrab has [[http://images.wikia.com/adventuretimewithfinnandjake/images/1/1f/Teeth_oh_god_why.jpg an unhingable jaw full of these]]. As if he wasn't disturbing enough already.
** The [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Ice King]] has these too, serving as [[spoiler:a physical manifestation of his becoming a monster.]]
* One word: [[SpongeBobSquarePants OVER]][[MemeticMutation TIME?!?!]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* The actual Osmond family is one tooth short of qualifying for this trope and a paradox at the same time.
* A medical condition called "hyperdontia" results in extra teeth in humans.
* Only some animals have a single tooth type like the majority of toothy fictional creatures: sharks are one example, with rows and rows of triangular teeth.
* [[ThreateningShark Sharks]]. Not only do they have a complete set of choppers, but they have multiple replacement sets growing right behind the first set. This is because when you eat like a shark, you go through teeth ''fast''. Their skin is actually made of millions of microscopic teeth called "dermal denticles", each one a tiny version of the ones in their mouths. Shark skin can be used as sandpaper. Evolutionarily speaking teeth, scales, feathers, hair, and bone[[labelnote:*]]which is odd, since shark skeletons aren't made of bone, just cartilage[[/labelnote]] are all variants of the same process.\\
\\
Special mention goes to the extinct "shark" ([[http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2013/02/26/buzzsaw-jaw-helicoprion-was-a-freaky-ratfish/ now appearently revealed to be a ratfish]], but still closely related enough) ''Helicoprion'' which did not lose the teeth in its lower jaw, instead keeping all of them in a deadly whorl of teeth, though appearently most of said teeth were hidden in the jaw, [[BodyHorror like an internal chainsaw]]. Let's also give it up for ''C. Megalodon''. Imagine a large Great White Shark. Now triple its size. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c5/Megalodon_jaws.jpg Or just look at this photo.]]
* Crocodiles and alligators. Their teeth are not designed for cutting or grinding but are designed for grabbing and holding. So they're shaped more like dull rail road spikes that are driven into your limbs so they can rip chunks off of you when they spin their bodies. And, like sharks (see above) and dinosaurs (see below), the teeth are designed to fall out and be replaced easily.
* Piranhas.
* ''Most'' kinds of bony fishes, especially the predatory ones, have teeth on their tongues, in their throat, and hanging from the roofs of their mouths, not just along the jawline.
* Several predatory dinosaurs, as well as some herbivores who had ''several thousand'' teeth in their mouths. Dental battery ''indeed.'' Say hello to [[http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2001/01/dinostory_2001-01-29.html Masiakasaurus.]]
** Not to mention ''Pelecanimimus'', which, in contrast to its later, toothless relatives, had ''220 teeth''.
* While TyrannosaurusRex might not've had a jaw ''that'' freaky, the tooth size more than makes up for it. Including the part firmly rooted inside a ''skull designed for crushing bone'', which had possibly the greatest bite force of anything on the continent at that time, the Rex's teeth could be a foot long.
** And it had ''50'' of them.
* Angler Fish, the evil [[LightIsNotGood bastards.]] In fact just about every other abyssal fish (except for pelican eels) has enormous needle-like teeth too. Teeth like this are very bad for biting and chewing, but are excellent at skewering and thus trapping a fish on the first bite. [[labelnote:*]]Now pass that BrainBleach.[[/labelnote]]
** One species, ''Neoceratias spinifer'', whom Tim Flannery nicknamed [[MeaningfulName the "Pincushion Sea Devil"]], has lost her glowing lure probably because her teeth glow in the dark.
** According to ''[[BluePlanet Blue Planet: Seas of Life]]'', another deep-water fish called the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast fang]][[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment tooth]] has the biggest teeth ''in the entire animal kingdom'' in relation to its body. Its mouth is always at least partway open because its mouth is of insufficient size to contain them closed.
* Lampreys have a sucker that is full of sharp teeth. And they use it to latch on to a fish, so they can suck on its blood, until said fish dies.
* Moray eels have a second "Pharyngeal jaw" that is essentially a real-life [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] inner mouth. [[http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2007/09/06/moray_jaws.gif]].
* While it's not the same structurally, the extinct lobopod [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opabinia ''Opabinia regalis'']] has a mouth "under its chin" - and a tubular proboscis ''thing'' tipped with claws that extends from the front of its head and looks an awful lot like a pair of jaws on a trunk.
* Goblin Shark also have a Xenomorph jaw that extends out to grab hold of prey. They seem UglyCute and harmless, with their huge duck-billed nose, until -- ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh_HUIJkRzU oh the horror!]]'' Mostly found in the waters of [[GiantEnemyCrab ancient Japan]].
** Just in case you were wondering, that's ''not'' a joke. They're found in the waters of Japan and although they aren't very common in the modern day, it's believed they were once more numerous.
*** During the Age of Dinosaurs they were.
* Tapeworms use their "[[http://curezone.com/ig/i.asp?i=1359 hooks]]" to grasp the intestines of potential hosts.
* Opossums have more teeth than any other land mammal; 50 teeth in something that size [[http://www.aaanimalcontrol.com/gallery/opossum021.jpg is really saying something]].
* The RealLife kings of the trope though, are snails, who have several ''thousand'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radula pairs of teeth]]. Terrifying, no?
* For some of the biggest non-tusk teeth in the world, see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Livyatan_melvillei Livyatan melvillei]] -- a whale with a mouthful of [[http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2010/6/30/1277901299026/Artists-impression-of-gia-002.jpg very big teeth]]
* The humble [[EverythingIsBetterWithPenguins penguin]], of all things, is more or less [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19871_the-7-most-terrifying-mouths-in-nature_p2.html a waddling Sarlacc pit]].
* The Bornean clouded leopard, while it has the same ''number'' of teeth as other cats, has the largest canines in proportion to its body size of any extant predatory mammal.
