"Glistening white triangular toothSimply put, a character's protruding teeth are played for 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 Cat Smile. 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 Girls, Cute Monster Girls, and other character types who fall under Little Bit Beastly. Ugly Cute 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 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 Urusei Yatsura, where a number of characters are Ancient Astronauts versions of oni and other supernatural creatures.) This trope is also Truth in Television. Many baby animals, whether of the carnivorous persuasion or the simian persuasion, sport them. In some cases, the eye teeth can be naturally pushed forward, hence giving one a semi-fanged appearance. In Japan, this is called "yaeba" and is regarded as cute. Many girls actually undergo a surgical procedure to achieve this effect. Fangs Are Evil is usually the Evil Counterpart to this trope, but the two can overlap if the writer is trying to invoke Cute is Evil.

Anime & Manga
- Index from A Certain Magical Index exhibits these at times, usually when about to bite Touma.
- Mara, the demoness from Ah! My Goddess, 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.
- Haruko from AIR has them, even though she is generally depicted as a nice person, albeit with some issues.
- This is done constantly in the 6 episode OAV of All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku.
- Yui of Angel Beats! has a pair of them, though only one is generally seen.
- Aria from Aria the Scarlet Ammo also has these, sometimes more prominent than others.
- Arpeggio of Blue Steel has Ashigara, whose fangs match her aggressive lust for battle.
- Romania from Axis Powers Hetalia, which has led to fan speculation about him possibly being a 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.
- Another male example comes in the form of the Medicine Peddler from Ayakashi: Samurai Horror Tales and Mononoke. 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.
- In a Freeze-Frame Bonus moment, Nyamo from Azumanga Daioh has one when she's drunk in Episode 14.
- Hachikuji from 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.
- Valt's younger twin siblings Toko and Nika from Beyblade Burst have a fang permanently poking out of their mouths.
- Black Lagoon: Revy has one of these in some of the omake. Especially notable in Omake 2: Mahou Shoujo-hen, where she is very bright and cheery... until she pulls out those two pistols.
- Hiyori Sarugaki of is often teased about her prominent little fang by fellow Vizard Shinji Hirako, and later by Ichigo, at which she promptly 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.
- Rin has one, being the son of Satan, in Blue Exorcist after his demonic power awakens. If he's pissed off or goes berserk, it falls under Fangs Are Evil.
- Delmo in Cosplay Complex possesses them, even though she is a bunny girl. Apparently rodent teeth are not as cute though.
- Digimon Tamers: Impmon and his evolution Beelzemon, after he pulls his Heel–Face Turn.
- Cute Little Fangs can be seen on Micchy, resident Gamer Chick of Don't Become an Otaku, Shinozaki-san!.
- Masumi Sera of Detective Conan has cute little fangs that show up occasionally when she's smiling, and Conan has even pointed them out as a defining feature of her looks. These also help him to remember that he met Sera and her family in the past.
- Garlic Jr. in Dragon Ball Z. He may be a villain but it's still cute looking, the way one fang sticks out of his mouth when he smiles.
- Fairy Tail
- Due to Dragon Slayer magic, Natsu and Gajeel have fangs, though not really cute. Luxus' fangs are even less cute.
- Haruko Haruhara in FLCL has these in the baseball episode (possibly others).
- Rin Matsuoka from Free! had a small pair of fangs when he was a child. Now, he has inexplicably grown a complete set of shark-like teeth.
- Tasuki from Fushigi Yuugi. You can see his fangs just about every time he opens his mouth.
- Madarame from Genshiken and his successornote in Spotted Flower, though "cute" might not be the word. The fangs emphasize his snake-like qualities.
- Hanayamata: Hana, a cute, innocent, enthusiastic girl, often has a pair of upper fangs on display. Being small for her age makes her stand out from the central female cast, as well.
- Haruhi Suzumiya
- Seras in the Hellsing manga and OVA, at least whilst she's not going psycho. And when she is...
- In the Highschool of the Dead 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.
- Hikari of Interviews with Monster Girls sports them. They're still apropos even if she wasn't a Family Friendly Vampire since she's the Genki Girl type.
- The eponymous character from the manga and anime InuYasha sports these, since he's descended from a dog yokai.
- Jewelpet Twinkle: Miria has these, presumably cosplay accessories, to complement her cat theme (having two cat Jewelpets).
- Loki in Kamigami No Asobi shows this occasionally.
- The Little Bit Beastly Kitsune Tomoe from Kamisama Kiss has them.
- Karin's eponymous heroine, who provided the former trope image.◊ Justified as she is a vampire.
- Kenko Zenrakei Suieibu Umisho's Maaya is almost an Expy of Mayu from Ai Yori Aoshi, but she also borrows Tina's fang (and swimming skill).
- Kuro from Kodomo no Jikan sports some fangs to emphasize her feral nature.
- Love Lab's Riko Kurahashi is a 24/7 owner of a pair of upper canines.
- Ritsuka in Loveless occasionally has these when he's yelling at someone. Slightly justified in that he's still got his cat ears and tail.
- Kuroi-sensei and Misao from Lucky Star. Misao, like Tsuruya, also has a bit of a speech impediment.
- Lyrical Nanoha
- Ranka Lee from Macross Frontier when she's singing. Understandable, being one-quarter Zentraedi.
- Liru and Pachira from Magical Pokaan, being a Werewolf and western-style vampire respectively.
- Mahou Sensei Negima!
- 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.
- 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 MÄR. There is no logical reason given for why they have them.
- 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.
- 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.
- Komachi from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU has an unusually long one.
- Loki from Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok. Especially notable in the manga, where he takes them out at one point and uses them as homing devices.
- 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 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 take a different route.
- The eponymous Niea from Niea_7 has them, likely because she is an alien. Still, other aliens in the show seem to lack them.
- Kirino from Oreimo sports these; they become especially evident when playing eroge.
- Scanty and Kneesocks from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, with a tad of Fangs Are Evil. It's lower incisors for Scanty and upper incisors for Kneesocks.
- 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...
- Kyouko in Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Kirika in Puella Magi Oriko Magica. Both play with this trope, Kyouko having two fangs instead of the normal single one, and Kirika most assuredly does not fit with the normal personality type the fang tends to signify. At all.
- Queen's Blade: Hide & Seek. Elina flashes hers on numerous occasions and is even said to be just like a cat.
- Ryôga from Ranma ˝. 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 flimsy disguise.
- Moka and Kokoa from Rosario + Vampire 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.
- Lime from Saber Marionette J 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.
- Seiji from Sakamichi No Apollon, which matches up with his slightly mischievous personality.
- Saki has Yuuki sporting one these, because she's the resident Genki Girl, and Kana sporting another one of these, because she has that entire Cat Girl schtick going on.
- School Rumble: Eri's teeth are drawn normally, except for when she's angry or indignant. Both instances are always played for laughs.
- Both Giroro and Tamama of Sgt. Frog have these, but Tamama's are really only shown when he's angry.
- Elise from Sky Girls has these. She also wears short, sharp-looking bunny ears to complete the effect.
- 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 worryingly noticeable◊.
- Gourry got them on occasion, in the third season (TRY) of the anime.
- Thanks to Art Evolution, Lina's are seen almost all the time starting with Revolution. The cute type for the most part.◊
- Holo from Spice and Wolf, 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 More Teeth than the Osmond Family — as anyone who's seen the mouth of an even completely ordinary wolf can tell.
- Ichikawa in Sukisho has one of these in almost every scene for no adequately explained reason.
- Miyoshi from Switch (2002) has these among other things.
- 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.
- Tenchi Muyo!: Ryoko and Ayeka are the two that display them the most, usually whenever they're bickering. But Kiyone also flashes a pair, or a single fang, when she's either surprised or exasperated by Mihoshi's airheadedness.
- Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
- 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?
- Nia of all people has one of these in some official High School A.U. art. And it's ADORABLE. Look closely, and she also has them in this official Halloween art.
- In a rare male example, Viral has them when he smiles. When he's not smiling it's More Teeth than the Osmond Family.
- Mew Ichigo of Tokyo Mew Mew. Most of the characters have these — the aliens do, at least.
- Nori from Tokyo Tribe 2.
- Lala's sister, Nana, from To Love-Ru usually has one ridiculously cute fang showing which makes her even more ridiculously cute.
- Abel of Trinity Blood has them sometimes; not too much of a surprise given that he's an (uber powerful) vampire.
- Hazuki, who's a vampire, from Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase, has a pair of fangs, which make her look more cute than threatening.
- Jin from YuYu Hakusho, in his demonic form, he has the cutest little fang◊.
- Francesca from Trash has this, which also adds to her Cute Bruiser quality. Not so cute when you find out that they have a practical use.
- Tomo from Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko has them. That said, she may be cute herself, but she's certainly not little.
- It seems to run in her family, as her mother also has it.
- Kirishima from My Hero Academia also has them.
- Tohru from Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid has one. Rather appropriate since her true form is a western style dragon.
- 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 Cute Monster Girl, especialy when Sana Takeda draws her.
- The (quite attractive) 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.
- As mentioned below, Beast Boy from Teen Titans was redesigned this way in the early 2000s after the success of the cartoon adaptation. The pointy teeth and Pointy Ears helps accentuate his animalistic theme.
Film — Animation
- In Zootopia, As young Nick is checking out his Junior Ranger Scout uniform in the mirror, one little fang pops out during one of his smiles then pops back in. His little fangs are also visible when he later recites the oath on the words "brave" and "helpful".
- Rachel Morgan, from The Hollows, 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 Domina. Maybe a subversion, since it's mentioned that people who don't know her well think they're freaky.
- The short story "Green Shadows" from Alan Burt Akers' 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."
- The Otherworld Series 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 Codex Alera, 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 Marat "barbarian".
- In the Arcana Chronicles Lark, 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.
- Each of the three titular characters in The Dogs have this as a defining trait of their species (an Uneven Hybrid of dog and human), but oddly, it's something that most people either don't notice or shrug off as merely a fluke.
- Averted by Ripfang, a vermin fom the Redwall series, who has a huge tooth protruding from his upper jaw. He really doesn't like people calling him "snaggletooth".
- This is a fleeting example, but in the 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 Doctor Who 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 Babylon 5. All of them, or at least all the males are supposed to have these, but due to budgetary 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 Wimzie's House.
- Andrew Zimmern, host of the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods has odd front teeth that give him this appearance when he smiles.
- Erica from My Babysitter's a Vampire and she uses them to her full advantage.
- The Cat from Red Dwarf 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.
- Neeshka in Neverwinter Nights 2 possesses these as part of her Cat Girl appearance.
- Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess possesses a set of tiny fangs, one of which shows through her lips when her mouth is closed.
- Linhua from BlazBlue has one on the left side of her mouth.
- Sora of the Kingdom Hearts series has these whenever he is in Halloween Town or 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 vampire-like clothing. The clothes themselves look adorable in the first game, but badass in Kingdom Hearts II, though the fangs remain small and cute.
- Most demons in the Disgaea games. Just to drive the point home, nearly all of their Team Attack portraits show them off.
- Ratchet & Clank: While the in-game model of Ratchet doesn't have noticeable fangs of any sort, he mysteriously gains them in the European advertisements. In the third game, his girlfriend Sasha does have them in-game.
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Rouge the Bat from the Sonic the Hedgehog 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.
- 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 (Knuckles, Shadow). Oddly, Tails, a fox, has no sharp teeth at all.
- World of Warcraft
- Female orcs and trolls always have small but visible tusks, and have the option of being rather pretty. Although draenei also have decidedly sharp teeth — and the females, at least, are attractive — said teeth aren't visible when a character has their mouth closed.
- Night elves have fangs too, which is appropriate considering the fact that elves in the Warcraft universe are descended from 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.
- Super Mario Bros.
- The Goombas. Though they were "evil" at first, their 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 Paper Mario 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.
- Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
Marta: Beautiful roses have thorns!
- Marta consistently has one in the left side of her mouth for some inexplicable reason. Marta's fang is called out by Ratatosk when Marta finishes a battle with her "Radiant Roar" Mystic Arte. Emil later calls it out after battles when Ratatosk is sealed away (again) temporarily, albeit more timidly.
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 half-demon girl Lilica of Arcana Heart.
- The 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 Shin Megami Tensei series (and by extension, all his other forms, such as Black Frost and Raiho.)
- Iris in Rune Factory Frontier. Yes, she is (they are?) a vampire, but it's the next thing to an Informed Attribute.
- The Sniper from Team Fortress 2 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 escaped summons in Summon Night: Twin Age, has tiny fangs.
- 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.
- At least according to the anime, Pikachu have fangs. This is unusual because they're based on rodents and seem herbivorous.
- Javik in Mass Effect 3 has some, although due to being a Perpetual Frowner, they're rarely seen.
- Inklings, the squid-human things in Splatoon, have the conventional fangs where their canines would be, but they also have a single fang on the bottom layer of teeth right in the middle of the mouth. This is a bit of Morphic Resonance; it's meant to emulate the beak that real-life squids have for their mouths.
- Ms. Fortune, the resident Cat Girl of SkullGirls, has fangs on both her top and bottom jaws, with the upper ones sometimes visible when her mouth is closed.
- In Undertale, many monsters have these, in varying sizes. The ones you will most likely notice are the ones that are on Toriel, Muffet, King Asgore and Asriel.
- League of Legends:
- In her most recent character update, Poppy, The Keeper of the Hammer has also seen updated splash art for each of her skins that shows a prominent cute little fang peaking out of the left side of her mouth. This change is visible on five of the seven skin options. Her character model in the game often opens her mouth wide as she speaks and smiles, showing of the cute little fang very regularly.
- Gnar has two on his lower jaw when he's on his "Mini Gnar" form. His Gentleman Gnar skin gives him one, but on his upper jaw. Mega Gnar, on the other hand, makes them look like snaggleteeth.
- The eponymous protagonist of Kid Dracula has little fangs sticking out of his mouth as a reminder that he's technically a vampire.
- Ace Attorney: Furio Tigre and Shi-Long Lang, both characters who have strong ties to predator animals in their names and appearance, have pointed incisors.
- When They Cry:
- Umineko: When They Cry 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 Kanon, an early clue to her fox origins.
- Daikuji Ayu from Rumbling Hearts.
- Kudryavka from Little Busters! has one. She doesn't really fit the tricksterish or catgirl personality, though, so it's probably part of her vaguely vampiric, Eastern European theme.
- The dragon in Dra Koi 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.
- In Code:Realize, Impey has little fangs which go completely unremarked-upon within the story and seem to serve as a visual indication of his mischievous nature. Bratty Half-Pint Delacroix II also has them. Because they're both vampires.
- A Day With Bowser Jr: Bowser Jr, even though he's now a teenager.
- Luna from Dominic Deegan, despite being human, has fangs similar to an Orcs. They are quite adorable. And important later.
- El Goonish Shive
- Wapsi Square
- 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 Drunken College Golems have them too.
- Not to mention the rather unconventional Vampire Gals. (Note that this image, which shows the fangs to good advantage, is borderline NSFW, although their other appearances are less so.)
- The green-skinned cleric Benn'Joon aka "Benny" in the webcomic Looking for Group. 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.
- Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name: Conrad, while not meant to be overwhelmingly "cute", sports a single tiny fang that's far from intimidating.
- The Order of the Stick
- 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.
- Evil Vaarsuvius also has Cute Little Fangs, though because of the circumstances surrounding their appearance, they're actually quite creepy.
- Male example: Doug from Fletcher Apts who also has Puppy-Dog Eyes at times.
- The title characters in Ozy and Millie, though only Ozy's are only obvious when he's talking) as well as several others. Somewhat lampshaded here.
- The art style of Queen of Wands has fangs as standard. On Angela they are pretty cute, though.
- Molly in The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob! manages to be very cute even with fangs on the end of her snout.
- Florence from 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.
- Eerie Cuties: Nina and her big sister, Layla, are vampires, so it naturally comes with the territory. Nina's are almost always visible and accentuate her childlike appearance, especially when she's smiling. But the only time you'll see Layla's are either when she's angry, or nervous.
- Fox Maharassa, playful rake from Boy Meets Boy, Friendly Hostility, and Other People's Business. They only appear when he 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~"
- Most trolls have pointy teeth, but Nepeta is really the only one who manages to make them look utterly adorable.
- 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 are drawn with rounded teeth), the only explanation is that it was to make him cuter.
- The Jagers of Girl Genius appear to have these... until they open their mouths.
- Happens occasionally in VG Cats, being as the main characters are, obviously, cats.
- Elf Blood'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).
- Some of the characters in The Cyantian Chronicles, particularly Quinn, Sheana, and the fox princesses.
- In Moon Crest 24 they look cool on Drake, but they're more adorable than menacing on Derek.
- With everyone in Commander Kitty being a Funny Animal, these are pretty common. Even Big Bad Zenith has them.
- Secret from Keychain of Creation has a pair - they're normally hidden, but when she's stressed or using her Abyssal powers, they emerge.
- Species X, a races of genetically engineered furry children from DNA has these.
- The Waverlys in Eight Cicadas all have fangs as a marker of their vague non-human heritage.
- Green Puppy from Blue's Clues has fangs.
- Beast Boy of Teen Titans, 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 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 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.
- 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, 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 Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi.
- Arguably most of the 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 Ni Hao, Kai-Lan.
- Loopy in one episode got these in KaBlam!
- Several characters in 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 Xyber 9 New Dawn has these, unless she's pissed off and hissing at someone, then they're far more creepy than cute.
- Marceline from Adventure Time, both before and after becoming a vampire.
- The entire Dingo family from Blinky Bill, but Shifty is by far the cutest.
- Scaredy Bat on Ruby Gloom.
- Samy on Jimmy Two-Shoes.
- My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
- Spike, though they aren't always visible.
- Discord's single fang is arguably cute too. Stops being arguably after his Heel–Face Turn, especially when he genuinely smiles.
- Similarly, Queen Chrysalis and her changelings.
- What do you mean, Nightmare Moon's fangs 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.
- Cassie, the pink dragon from Dragon Tales sports these. As a matter of fact, many of the dragons, if not all, possess them.
- Most of the Cats from Thundercats 2011, especially Wilykit and Wilykat. Subverted with Sabertooth Grune, who just has one really big one because he tore out the other to use as an Improvised Weapon.
