** In addition to actual [[{{Mons}} monsters]], some of the human characters also qualify. [[AllLovingHero Ash Ketchum]] has the appearance and mannerisms of a brash, classically adorable little boy. He's also one of few humans to physically put himself on the line for Pokémon in the series, jumps around like a Mankey to rescue said Pokémon, and is even capable of [[spoiler:using Aura]]. Did I mention that he risks or [[AllLovingHero even knowingly sacrifices himself for Pokémon]] regularly? [[CuteBruiser Maylene]], Whitney, and [[{{Shorttank}} Misty]] may also qualify; [[CuteBruiser Maylene]] is basically described this way by other characters.

* As a [[ShrinkingViolet timid]], doe-eyed AllLovingHero, ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'''s Jacuzzi is about as {{Moe}} as you can possibly make a man without [[{{Shotacon}} without turning him into Shotabait]]. He's ''also'' prone to crazy feats of badassery like taking out eighteen mafia-owned speakeasies in a single night or going one-on-one with a crazy, flamethrower-wielding cult leader.

* Denzel from ''Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren''. Case in point - "Son of a bitch!!!"

* Class 3-E in ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' being comprised of young teenagers, most of them are cute to varying degrees, and become powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with their Class A bullies and professional assassins alike. Standout examples include:
** Nagisa Shiota, an adorable boy who, despite looking like a girl and having a very kind nature, hides an exceptional natural talent for assassination that friend and foe alike take note of.
** Kaede Kayano; small, as adorable as her friend Nagisa, and just as capable, not to mention [[spoiler:able to withstand and hide the grueling pain that unmanaged tentacles cause in human users for a full year, just to get a chance to kill Koro-sensei. Even without those, she remains very strong and very adorable]].
** Autonomous Intelligence Fixed Artillery, or Ritsu for short, is just as her name implies, a killing machine with lots of guns and an ability to adapt quickly to her enemies' behavior and patterns. She also has the mind, personality and face of an adorable teenage girl.

* ''Anime/DragonballZ''

* ''Anime/DragonballZ''''Anime/DragonballZ'':



* Several of the dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' look rather cute in their human forms, which belies the fact that any one of them could lay waste to entire cities in the blink of an eye. Special mention goes to Kanna, who takes the form of an eight-year-old girl, and manages to be just as adorable in her dragon form.

* Unico from ''Anime/TheFantasticAdventuresOfUnico''. Possibly the cutest baby unicorn you will ever see, [[spoiler: killed a fifty-story demon lord by impaling him with his horn.]]

* ''Anime/DogDays'' has many examples: Cinque, Rebecca, Nanami, Millhiore... but the best one would probably be [[WarriorPrince Leaf]] since he took on [[BadassPrincess Leo]] in a one-on-one fight and nearly won (he was ''[[NotHyperbole literally]]'' one hit away from winning]]).

** There's also [[CuteClumsyGirl Tashigi]], [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Vivi]], and to a lesser extent cuteness-wise, [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Robin]] and [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Hancock]].

to:

** There's Tashigi is a very nice and eager young Marine soldier, as well as a {{Meganekko}} and a CuteClumsyGirl with an almost {{Adorkable}} fascination for swords. She's also [[CuteClumsyGirl Tashigi]], very fast, and after taking a few levels in badass over the TimeSkip, strong enough to deflect cannonballs with her swords and use Haki.
**
[[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Vivi]], and to Vivi]] is the adorable, soft-spoken young princess of Alabasta, who packs razor-sharp whips that she cain aim with perfect precision. While she is overshadowed in terms of power by the rest of the Straw Hats, she's nonetheless very powerful.
** To
a lesser extent cuteness-wise, [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Robin]] and [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman Hancock]].Hancock]] qualify.
** While she hates fighting, Rebecca nonetheless qualifies. She's so fast and skilled with Observation Haki that she consistently defeats almost everyone she's pitted against in the Corrida Colosseum tournaments without ever attacking herself, to the point she earned the moniker of "Undefeated Woman". All while being a very cute and nice sixteen-year old girl.


Added DiffLines:

** Cat Viper, one of the leaders of the Mink tribe, is a very large, threatening, powerful and no-nonsense MegaNeko in combat. Outside of battle, he's as playful and jolly as you'd expect a cat to be.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ''
** Son Gohan is a pint-sized [[ChildrenAreInnocent child]] who can ''[[CurbStompBattle trash]]'' world destroying super-powered psychopaths.
** Same thing goes to young Trunks and Son Goten during the Buu saga.
** Son Goku, even as an adult, is an endearingly innocent and kindhearted boy... who has saved the world so many times that he has "lost count" (to be fair, he ''did'' have [[IdiotHero trouble counting past eleven]] due to brain damage suffered as a baby).
** It's been noted on the Characters/DragonBall page that BadassAdorable must be InTheBlood: not only Goku and his sons, but his wife Chi-Chi, daughter-in-law Videl and granddaughter Pan are all {{Tsundere}} [[CuteBruiser Cute Bruisers]], too.

**Zen'Oh. He is the size of a child and looks and acts just as adorable. He also has the power to ''destroy entire universes'' if he feels the need to.

* Musubi from ''{{Sekirei}}'' is gorgeous, [[GenkiGirl energenic]], almost always smiling, hops in place with glee at the thought of meeting a strong opponent, and can punch through buildings like they're made of paper.
