The Biding of Isaac, Loki.
That cat image has nothing to do with the trope, minus the fangs. Wouldn't a character with fangs be more fitting?
Pretty much everyone has heard of cats, as opposed to some random-ass anime character that someone unable to tell this paticular anime apart from the rest of them (read: everyone) wouldn't know about. Cats are cute, and have little fangs.
Cat is better to a wider audience, unless of course there's something else that everyone has heard of which is cute and fanged that i'm overlooking.
Yeah, but this is about people with cute little fangs. Everyone knows cats have cute little fangs. People with cute little fangs are much rarer. And since this is predominantly an anime trope (as evidenced by the Japan reference in the article)...
Seconded. Regardless of how predominant totally unnecessary weeabooism can be, even on this very wiki, the use of a felid to represent an exclusively anthropoid trope is totally inappropriate, "wider audience" including Japanophobes and H.P. Lovecraft be damned.
I don't object to the principle of having a picture of a cat with Cute Little Fangs so much as I object to this specific picture- the fangs simply aren't that prominent. In a vacuum, I would not have realized this was supposed to be a picture for Cute Little Fangs.

How well does it match the trope?
