* A couple ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' villains have this. Warren White/The Great White Shark lost his lips to frostbite; Waylon Jones/Killer Croc is occasionally drawn lipless and occasionally not, DependingOnTheArtist.

* Inverted in ''ComicBook/MythAdventures'', Phil Foglio's adaptation of Robert Asprin's books. One of the two main protagonists, Aahz, has a huge mouth full of razor sharp teeth - and he's the good guy. (Well, sorta...)

Simple, the good guys have [[BeautyEqualsGoodness expressive lips]] and the bad guys have scary, protruding, teeth, possibly [[{{Phlegmings}} dripping with mucus]]. Commonly found in reptiles and the undead.

* The [[TheGreys Sectoids]] of ''{{VideoGame/XCOM2}}'', unlike their [[NoMouth mouth-less]] predecessors in ''XCOMEnemyUnknown'', have lipless, sharp-toothed mouths which give them a skull-like rictus grin. Come ''VideoGame/XCOMChimeraSquad'' and the integration of aliens into human society, the "Good Lips" half of the trope has been ''invoked'': many Sectoids, particularly those with public jobs such as newscasters, have undergone additional gene mods to give themselves lips for a more sympathetic face.

** The trope is well illustrated with the contrast between Kitana (Edenian, fully humanoid, good) and Mileena (Edenian-Tarkatan hybrid, evil). Only subverted in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', where Mileena develops lips over the center of her mouth, but still has sharp teeth which show through in the form of a GlasgowGrin.

* ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'' and the... well, ALL the non-friendly dinosaurs. Conversely, the iguanodon protagonists were originally designed with rigid beaks, which would have been accurate, but they were later given lips in order to make them more expressive.

* In ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', the psychotic cyborg Nazi Karl Ruprecht Kronen has surgically removed his lips and eyelids, just to [[RuleOfScary creep you out]].

* ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarth'': The Monitor of our universe looks mostly humanoid, while the Anti-Monitor is mechanical; the only seeming organic part of him is the exposed, lipless row of long, thin, jagged, slotted-together teeth. [[note]] That said, some think it might be wrinkly skin, or furry baleen like a whale has [[/note]]
