->''"If you doubt your courage or your strength, come no further. For death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth!"''
-->''' Tim the Enchanter''', ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''

You know, fangs. Those pointy things that, whenever they're in the mouth of someone or something, usually [[RedRightHand indicate]] that they're [[DarkIsNotEvil probably]] evil and/or badass and probably looking for an excuse to [[HairTriggerTemper bite you with them]]. They're usually paired with FemmeFatalons and PointyEars to create a predatory look, and they're ''[[SpikesOfVillainy pointy]]'' [[EvilIsCool so very...very pointy]]! And really, what's the [[IncrediblyLamePun point]] in having pointy teeth if you don't do stuff with them like rip apart the flesh of the living? [[MundaneUtility Opening beer cans for kicks? Removing the shrink wrap from DVD boxes?]]

[[{{Werewolf}} Werewolves]], [[{{Dracula}} vampires]], and [[OurMonstersAreDifferent monsters in general]] make this trope very common. It indicates that the creature in question is probably predatory and that you have dropped a rung on the food chain. The prey animal instinct in us never fails to feel wary about teeth that look like weapons and writers have always known to make use of a PrimalFear. Of course, it helps that the canines were specifically evolved for ripping and tearing flesh.

For trope purposes, this includes fangs, tusks, [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily and an entire jaw of purposely sharpened teeth]]. CuteLittleFangs is usually the GoodCounterpart to this trope, but the two can overlap if the writer is trying to invoke CuteIsEvil. May be paired with HornedHumanoid for a demonic look. Related to ScaryTeeth. May also involve {{Phlegmings}}.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Taken to its logical conclusion by Hiruma of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'': ''All'' of his teeth are fangly, they're visible pretty much any time he opens his mouth (which is often), and when you see them, [[CheshireCatGrin he's definitely being a dangerous trickster.]]
** Played [[FangsAreEvil straight]] with Kamiya Taiga of the Magaki Wolves, whose little fang is just one of the many lupine qualities he has.
* The Oni in ''Manga/AoNoFuuin'' are always depicted with long fangs, used of course to eat [[IAmAHumanitaran human flesh]].
* The [[AlwaysChaoticEvil less morally righteous]] folk and many non-human creatures of the ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}'' series usually have more intimidating fangs than [[CuteLittleFangs the usual endearing variety]]. The half-demon half-dragon Valgaav has the most menacing fangs, while the affable demonic priest Xellos has a smaller, but no less scary set. Creatures such as trolls and werewolves also have fangs.
** The [[CursedWithAwesome cursed chimera]] Zelgadis also has a set of less-than-adorable fang-like teeth on his upper jaw, but they're almost never seen unless he's completely livid.
* Viral from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' is a crossbreed of human, cat, and shark -- with the teeth to match. [[spoiler: It's subverted by his NobleDemon tendencies and his eventual HeelFaceTurn, though.]]
* In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', every vampire is shown to have a full mouth of razor-sharp teeth. This trope is often [[CuteLittleFangs subverted]] with Seras, but she later subverts it as well when [[spoiler:she drinks Pip Bernadotte's blood, becoming a full vampire.]]
** They seem only to have the mouthful of fangs when they choose to; even Alucard has given a few wide smiles without showing anything sharp. Makes sense, considering how fluid their physiology seems to be in general.
* Played straight in ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' when someone puts on [[ArtifactOfDoom The Mesoamerican Stone Mask]] and splashes it with blood, turning the wearer into a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric monster]].
** Also Mannish Boy, the evil baby in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Part 3]], has this as a tell-tale sign that he's evil despite being an infant (and ''not'' a vampire).
* In ''Anime/WolfsRain'', the wolves' fangs don't mean they're evil (being the main characters, they're portrayed very sympathetically), but it ''certainly'' means they're dangerous. The wolves are realistically drawn, and on top of that, the animators added wolf growls/snarls at the appropriate times.
* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', the female humanoid adorned on the [[EnemyWithout berserked self-defense program]] comes with four pointy fangs. They wonderfully complement her [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], [[MarkOfTheBeast red lines]], [[FullFrontalAssault naked body]], and other traits that complete her appearance as the OmnicidalManiac [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt out to destroy your world]].
* Played straight in ''Manga/DragonBall'' with Piccolo.
** In the second series, ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', this was subverted with both [[HeelFaceTurn Piccolo himself]] and the introduction of his race, the Namekians. Despite even having the aforementioned pointy ears and claw-like nails, they're mostly gentle, simple villagers - even the few warriors among them only seem to act in self-defense. Why a race of vegetarians have fangs is never explained.
*** It makes perfect sense. Gorillas, also herbivorous, have big fangs. They're used for shredding tough plant fibers.
*** Which raises another question: namely, why a species that needs only water to survive would develop to eat anything.
** Played straight with Super and Kid Buu.
* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'': There's a reason why two out of the three faces selected for this [[http://img3.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire2/324cccfb8eeb0188606b9e0395f342f21244397044_full.jpg shot]] are fangy.
** However, it should be noted that CuteLittleFangs are also much in evidence, as they appear to be a genetic trait of [[BigScrewedUpFamily the Ushiromiyas]]. But then, at least in [[CreepyChild Maria's]] case, they aren't mutually exclusive...
* When Galvatron is resurrected as Super Megatron in ''[[Manga/TransformersZone Transformers: Return of Convoy]]'', he gains a set of fangs.
* ''Manga/ExcelSaga'': Excel Excel's [[CuteLittleFangs Cute Little Fang]] would be a double-subversion. Since her introduction in the ''Daitenjin'' manga, she's been the PerkyFemaleMinion of an EvilOverlord. Even her Angelic side has been arrested for murder.
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the homunculus Greed, who, for some reason, has shark-like teeth, is an example. [[spoiler:Kinda...while the homunculi are the antagonists for the series, Greed's also the least homicidal of the group and the only one to pull not only a HeelFaceTurn, but also a HeroicSacrifice.]]
* Johannes Krauser II, from ''Manga/DetroitMetalCity''. Krauser is actually the main character [[ShrinkingViolet Negishi's]] shocking and violent [[KayfabeMusic stage persona]], complete with an intimidating costume. The fangs always appear when Negishi puts on the costume and make up but, at least in the OVA series, it's never shown whether he puts them on as part of the costume, or if they just inexplicably grow when he takes on the role of Krauser.
* Ashley from ''Manga/BetrayalKnowsMyName''.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', all Dragon Slayers have fangs, the sizes of which seems to reflect the personality of the character. Shy Wendy has two pairs of little ones; exuberant Natsu has two pairs of medium sized ones, or sometimes two rows of them, if his mouth is wide open and dark; and brooding Gajeel's teeth are huge and sharp all the time.
* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', Kyouko balances between this and CuteLittleFangs. Sure, she might be mischievous, but that definitely does not stop her from being [[AxCrazy c]][[SociopathicHero r]][[AntiHero a]][[BloodKnight z]][[CombatPragmatist y]].
* Both subverted ''and'' played straight in ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', and by the same character: the main character has CuteLittleFangs most of the time, but when he transforms into his AxCrazy SuperPoweredEvilSide, his fangs grow longer and get distinctly more terrifying. It makes perfect sense for Inuyasha who is half ''dog'' demon.
* 9th from ''Manga/FutureDiary'' in her more crazy and villainous moments tends to be draw with fang-looking teeth.
* AxeCrazy {{Shinigami}} Grelle Sutcliffe from ''Manga/BlackButler'' has a mouth full of [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily shark teeth]]. Just to drive the point home, she reveals them immediately after being caught red-handed [[spoiler: performing the last of the UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper murders.]]
* Shadow Link from ''Manga/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwords2004'' starts growing fangs and sharp fingers during his VillainousBreakdown.
* Yujiro from ''Grappler Baki''. His fangs seem to have grown since he started fighting for pleasure, and developed the demon shaped back muscles on his body.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Spider-Man villains ComicBook/{{Venom}}, Carnage, and the other evil symbiotes. Generally, when a symbiote possesses someone good, there's no mouth, but when it possesses someone bad, there's a mouth full of fangs. Toxin is a neat example. When the host is in control, there are no fangs. When the host lets the symbiote take over, it gets fangs. Similiar with Flash Thompson as Venom - his default mode has no mouth, but fangs tends to appear when he is losing control to the symbiote.

* The Helghast in the ''Literature/LoneWolf'' series have fangs in their bottom jaw.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FreddieAsFRO7'': El Supremo has these, seemingly for no other reason than that he's evil.
* Several Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon villains have prominent fang-like teeth, including the actual supernatural beings like [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]] (''all'' of his teeth are pointy) and [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]], but also some evil humans like [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Jafar]] (in snake form) and [[Disney/{{Mulan}} Shan-Yu]].
* Marvin [=McNasty=], the main villain of ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppiesAndTheLegendOfBigPaw'', has enormous sharp teeth.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Nosferatu}}'' is interesting, because Count Orlock's fangs, rather than being his canines, are his front teeth, giving him a ratlike appearance and causing him to look far more grotesque than most vampires.
* The Headless Horseman in ''Film/SleepyHollow'' has filed teeth. (ItMakesSenseInContext; despite being ''headless'' for most of the movie, he does eventually get his head back, complete with pointed teeth).
* [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Victor Creed]]/[[Film/XMen1 Sabretooth]]. Which he pairs with his PsychoticSmirk.
* The cannibal tribe of ''Film/TheColony'' are identified by their sharpened teeth.
* Venom naturally has sharp teeth in ''Film/SpiderMan3''. Oddly enough, Eddie Brock still has sharp teeth even when the symbiote recedes to show his face.

* This may be why the mostly-friendly vampires of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' are ''literally'' fangless.
** Subverted in that vampires that eat humans far outnumber ones that don't, and yet all vampires lack fangs.
* ''Literature/VarneyTheVampire'' was the first vampire to have fangs. Despite how bad that book is generally considered to be, fangs have caught on enough for ''{{Dracula}}'' to have them.
** Most of the vampires found in folklore around the world had a piercing tongue or mosquito-like proboscis for sucking blood. It was only in European Gothic literature of the 19th century that fangs caught on as their indispensible physical characteristic.
*** The Anzati, vampire-like aliens in the Star Wars Universe, are like the former. Except they suck brains instead of blood.
* The 'possessed' in ''Literature/TheNightsDawnTrilogy'' have the ability to shapeshift their form and often take on the appearance of monsters of legend. Several of the first ones to appear keep their appearance, but with fangs, presumably in imitation of vampires.
* The Mixitor in ''Literature/{{Spaceforce}}'' are not real supernatural vampires, but they can still extrude venomous fangs and sink them into the neck of their prey.
* In Literature/{{Magnus}}, all the Fallen Angels have vampiric fangs to signify their evilness.
* A tribe in ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' sharpens their teeth to points. Not for any particular reason; apparently, they just like the effect when they grin.
** The vampires have these, of course. Even the ones who aren't interested in biting people.
* In ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'', Elphaba was born with a full set of sharp fangs, and it was a painful and nightmarish experience for her mother to try breastfeeding. But as she grew older, her fangs fell out and were replaced with normal teeth.
* A card played by Elves against Humans in ''Literature/TheWitcher'' Saga. Humans have canine teeth, and therefore are ''clearly'' hardly better than wild beasts. Incidentally, Elves in the Witcherverse are herbivorous.
* Every time Vlad in ''Literature/CountAndCountess'' is about to take a bite out of someone, he grins. The glimpse of artificially sharpened teeth serves as the victim's first and last warning.
* Despite [[AgentMulder Chester's]] claims about Literature/{{Bunnicula}} having fangs ([[CuteLittleFangs and cute ones, at that!]]), [[SubvertedTrope this trope is subverted]].
* [[DarkActionGirl Enobaria]], one of the Victors from ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', is infamous for having ripped out a Tribute's throat in the Games she won. Afterwards, she had her teeth sharpened to a point and inlaid with gold.
* In the Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath, those Randir personally bound (i.e., loyal and magically sworn) to their house's EvilMatriarch Rawneth file their teeth to sharp points.
* In ''Literature/{{Watersong}}'', even in human form, the sirens' teeth are elongated into fangs, hinting at their carnivorous nature.
* It is completely inverted with the [[FishPeople hydrites]] from the German SF series ''Literature/{{Maddrax}}''. Although they have dangerous-looking teeth, they are a species of peaceful herbivores.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. The phrase "Well, ''duh''" would appear to be indicated on this one.
* Attempted, to complete failure, with the Ferengi on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. The Ferengi sharpen all their teeth regularly, but somehow still look goofy.
** The whole "being short wrinkly bald guys" thing probably has a lot to do with that.
** On the other hand, the Klingons often pull it off. In the first episode of ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'', Reed mentions with some apprehension that Klingons reputedly "sharpen their teeth before battle". Depending on which episode of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' you're watching, the Klingons might be "Fangs are Tough" rather than "Fangs are Evil."
* ''Series/TrueBlood''. Interestingly, they don't put the fangs on the canine teeth as standard, but on the teeth right before the canines. They also make a flick sound when they extend and retract, like a switch blade.
** It's worth a mention that the fangs themselves are usually not the most frightening, but the reveal of a character thought to be human having them is, leading to many an OhCrap moment. Most notably, a truly shocking scene during the fifth season:
-->'''Mike Spencer''': I came to look at the body.
-->'''Sookie''': What body?
-->'''Mike Spencer''': Yours. (''FANGS'')
* The Sidhe on ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' have filed teeth, but are otherwise so tiny and unintimidating that they may well qualify as CuteLittleFangs.
* Invoked on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Sort of. JD has a few imagine spots in which he is Dr. Acula and vants to suck teh blood.
* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', hunters will check for fangs when they suspect a being may be a vampire. Many monsters have fangs in this series, but a vampire's fangs are retractable.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/{{Candorville}}'' directly correlates the size of the fangs with the evil of whatever has them--Susan's dog even gets bigger fangs when it's being scary than when it's being friendly. It's uncertain whether this is an artistic conceit or something else, given that [[spoiler:the dog is apparently an evil shapeshifter, as is every fanged humanoid that has changed its fang length at one point or another.]]

* The robot snake in ''Pinball/{{Viper}}'' uses this to establish its menace.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Mr. 450 wore fangs in World Wrestling League promotional photos, seemingly for this effect after putting away baby {{face}} Sensacional Carlitos in their "final battle".[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* In ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'', this is a good way to tell a Kindred's mood. Generally, retracted fangs = good mood = [[ManipulativeBastard keep watch]], showing fangs = angry, [[HorrorHunger hungry]], or [[SuperpoweredEvilSide frenzying]] = RUN!
* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (and quite a few other fantasy works), sharp teeth are standard-issue for evil humanoids--[[OurGoblinsAreDifferent goblins, hobgoblins, bugbears]], [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs]], [[TheOgre ogres]], [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]], etc.
* Averted in TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} by the [[Literature/SpaceWolf Space Wolves]], an army of [[BoisterousBruiser boisterous bruisers]] who are about as close to good guys as the setting gets and are notable for having elongated canines. Since these grow longer as the Wolves get older, their veterans are even known as Long Fangs.
** Also averted by the Blood Angels, who have fangs as part of their vampire motif and are also among the nobler SpaceMarine chapters. Unless they hit the [[UnstoppableRage Black Rage]], in which case things can get...[[KillEmAll ugly]].
** And then played straight with the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]].
** And the [[DarkIsEvil Night Lords]], particularly their Primarch [[TheCowl Konrad Curze]]
** Invoked by the Dark Elves in the Fantazy setting, who don't have fangs naturally, but sometimes file their teeth to points as a fashion statement.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* As of patch 3.0, Night Elves in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' have fangs to show off their feral nature. And Orcs and Trolls have ''tusks''.
* In ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'', [[spoiler:Marx]] gets fangs after [[spoiler:Nova grants his wish to rule Popstar]]. In ''Kirby Super Star Ultra'', his fangs get bigger when [[spoiler:he is resurrected as the final boss]].
* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'': Sho Minamimoto the [[OneWingedAngel lion's]] teeth look like they could take off an arm.
* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'' has a weird variation on this trope. This is one of the reasons [[OurElvesAreBetter elves tend to look down on humans.]] Elves in the Witcherverse have no canine teeth. Humans, [[CaptainObvious of course]], do. So ''clearly'' humans are just savage beasts in many of their minds; they even have fangs!
* In ''[[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Ace Attorney Investigations]]'', the Interpol agent Shi-Lang has sharp fangs to compliment his wolflike nature. He hates prosecutors, arrests people for little to no reason, and is a bit of a jerk to Edgeworth. However, he is presented sympathetically [[spoiler: and even provides a BigDamnHeroes moment when he gets Alba's diplomatic immunity revoked.]]
** Played straight with Furio Tigre, an intimidating and badly tanned loan shark who, through a PaperThinDisguise and everyone else being idiots, managed to actually impersonate Phoenix Wright because they had the same spiky hair.
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'''s Baraka and Mileena! Baraka, as well as the rest of the [[http://mortalkombat.wikia.com/wiki/Tarkata Tarkatans]], could send a shark running with a single grin. Mileena, a half-human, half Tarkatan EvilTwin of Kitana, inherits the hardware, though she keeps it hidden behind a veil.
* Averted in the third installment of ''VideoGame/StarControl'' by the menacing but ultimately honourable Harika.
* [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganon's]] bestial forms generally have large curved tusks, though he typically doesn't actually use them in combat.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Unreal}}'' series has this in spades. In [[VideoGame/{{UnrealI}} the first game]], two of the three big time enemy alien species, the Skaarj and their bio-engineered heavy assault units, the Brutes, have tusks protruding from their lower jaws (the Skaarj's are particularly large). The only other mook species that fits their bill, the Krall, have quite a nasty set of them by the time ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' rolls by.
* The monsters of ''Videogame/{{Evolve}}'' tend to have these. Averted with the Goliath whose teeth are actually blunt and peg-like, but still look jagged and vicious.

* In Daria Cohens WebAnimation/TheVampair series Missi is a normal human woman before being corrupted by Dukes staff. After? She sports a nice set of chompers. Duke Zigzags this, as while hes clearly amoral, he seems more mischievous than malicious

* And, of course, ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily Jagerkin]]. Although many of them have a BoisterousBruiser bent and fight alongside the good guys ([[GreyAndGreyMorality for a certain value of good]]).
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', this is part of [[spoiler:Vaarsuvius']] PaintItBlack switch after that character [[spoiler:accepts a DealWithTheDevil.]]
** The Always Evil [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Goblinoids]] of this 'verse have fangs AND tusks. Eat your heart out.
* In a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], most of the time [[Webcomic/{{Freefall}} Florence Ambrose]] doesn't show teeth, even when talking, but when [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff100/fv00098.htm she smiles]], people start getting awfully cooperative, for some odd reason.
* Richard of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' seems to have fangs under that cowl of his, if the x-ray vision we were treated to by troll shamans in an early page is anything to go by.
* Yigs in ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing'' have small fangs that protrude from the lower jaw, but despite this and other traditional Orcish attributes, they aren't any more Evil than humans or other races in this setting.
* Zimmy in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' has her mouth full of jagged, sharp teeth. She has a hostile, insensitive personality, but she's hardly evil, making her something of an aversion.
** Coyote's teeth are normally flat squares, completely unnatural for his canine mouth. [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1091 But when he does something nasty...]]
* Lower caste orcs from ''Webcomic/FairyDust'' have their tusks ripped out to make their low status visible. The adult males who still have their tusks can be assumed to be combattive enough to maintain their high position.
* ''Webcomic/GhostsOfTheFuture'''s resident evil AI, Nicole, sports a pretty savage pair of chompers, much more noticeable than her original appearance in ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Played straight and somewhat averted in ''Literature/VoidDomain''. Vampires pretty much single-handedly destroy a whole city. One vampire who isn't quite so bad almost gets killed because of the assumption of this trope.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersGeneration1'':
** Scourge was ''supposed'' to have fangs, if one of the early scripts of ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' is any indication. In some scenes in the Season 3 episode ''The Burden Hardest To Bear", it does look like he has fangs, especially when Broadside is holding him.
** Ravage, on the other hand, has always been shown as having fangs. He ''is'' a robotic panther, after all.
** The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' version of Megatron invokes this.
* Vlad Plasmius and Dark Danny (Dan Phantom) in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' both qualify.
* Nega-Timmy, Anti-Fairies in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''. Butch Hartman must LOVE this trope.
* Yuck from ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'', too.
* Demona from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. Strictly speaking, all gargoyles have fangs, but Demona really enjoys showing them off, and she's evil.
* Discussed in a sort of FantasticRacism sense in ''ReBoot''; [[PlayfulHacker Mouse]] is suspected of several abductions in one episode, and another character denies that it has anything to do with the fact that she's got fangs.
** Megabyte and Hexadecimal also have fangs. Megabyte's fangs are hard to notice until he drops his FauxAffablyEvil persona and starts acting like the vicious predator he is. Hexadecimal's fangs only appear when she switches to her NightmareFace.
* These, along with every other part of his look, make Machestro from ''WesternAnimation/Xyber9NewDawn'' seem rather cat-like.
* [[MadeOfEvil Aku]] of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' fits this trope to a T.
** The Minions of Set as well. At first it looks like they don't even have mouths, until one of them decides to open theirs revealing they actually have ''[[http://i.imgur.com/at2vIU4.jpg huge]]'' mouths that contains nothing ''but'' fangs.
* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Night]][[FallenAngel mare]] [[TheNightThatNeverEnds Moon]] in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. A pony with carnivorous, meat-eating fangs can't possibly be on the side of the angels.
** [[ComicallyMissingThePoint ...but there are no angels in the show...]]
** Add to that her [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing]] HellishPupils and the conclusion that she's a horse-cat-hybrid EldritchAbomination is not far.
** Subverted in the HalloweenEpisode.
** Queen Chrysalis also sports a set of fangs.
** [[MadGod Discord]] has one single out of place fang. [[spoiler:Though it becomes a subversion when he [[HeelFaceTurn reforms]].]]
** [[GenericDoomsdayVillain King Sombra]] has a bunch of villain tropes crammed into him, including this one.
** Lord Tirek has a pretty decent set of chompers, and he's pretty much as close to ''Satan'' as this show is ever going to get.
* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'': [[PunnyName NOS-4-A2]] and [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting Wirewolf]]. Since they're an energy vampire and robot-devouring werewolf, respectively, this obviously makes some sense.
* Mr. Burns in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', who was an especially cruel, corrupt and downright evil old man in early seasons, is shown to have a pair of dentures with fangs on them.
* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' with Wildcat and B'wana Beast, whose fangs are too big to be CuteLittleFangs but who are definitely good guys.
* First played straight, then subverted on ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Marceline and the Ice King both have fangs, but Marceline is only a villain for one episode before becoming friends with the main characters. The Ice King, meanwhile, [[spoiler: is eventually revealed to have been a human antiquarian who had his mind warped by an ArtifactOfDoom. So he turns out to be more misguided and oblivious than evil, and we later see that he had the fangs even when he was more [[FallenHero unambiguously good.]]]]
* Corvax, the green-skinned goblinoid EvilChancellor from ''WesternAnimation/MuzzyInGondoland'', has a set of sharp, pointy teeth.
* [[WesternAnimation/BraveStarr Thunderstick.]] It severely laps into CuteLittleFangs...ehm, YOU tell him that. (Interestingly, no image of Vipra with snake fangs could be found.)
* Flippy from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' switches from the show-standard buckteeth to a fanged SlasherSmile whenever he goes into [[JekyllAndHyde evil mode]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': Mr. Cat, the main villain of the show, has fangs. It's pretty much justified because he's a cat.
