Would stitching the mouth shut count? For example, Loki of Norse Mythology had his mouth sewn shut after losing a bet.

This is not an example the mouth was not removed.
  • The Protoss in StarCraft have no mouths. Them being a telepathic race, this seems like no big deal, until you read the race histories in the manual which has several Protoss eating in one part.
    • Several novels point out that they feed off sunlight, similar to plants. How they get minerals and nutrients into their bodies is not explained. Perhaps, it's too gross for a human to even think about.

This probably not an example — the mouth is not being removed in a scene as part of a story.

  • World of Warcraft One of the appearance options for male Forsaken is a missing lower jaw, with the tongue hanging down and everything.

This is not an example — it's not just the mouth.

  • A short film on YouTube features a man in a bathroom. He starts shaving his facial hair, then he literally shaves his face clean off.

This is not an example of the trope, just a use of the title phrase.

  • When "No Face" begins eating everyone in the bath house he stops by one spirit and says, "Wipe that smile off your face...... YOU'RE STILL SMILING!" And then eats him.
