I always head that the sharks mouth came because of the Chinese saying the the avg fought like tigers. Is the the real reason.

The idea of the SHARK MOUTH design came from a India published paper that showed an RAF western desert P-40. With Chennault's approval the Tiger Shark toothed mouth was painted on all our aircraft as the P-40 was ideally suited for the design.
