* A lot of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' owned by characters in the anime fall under this. IE: [[KidAppealCharacter Pikachu]], Bulbasaur, Charmander, Piplup, Teddiursa, Raichu and [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Clefairy]] are just a handful of examples.

* Seems to be one of the favorite tropes of ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''. The main character is a sweet, dorky and nerdy boy with super strength, outside of that you have his GenkiGirl friend who controls gravity and an UglyCute frog girl with great skills, quick thinking and NervesOfSteel. Although they are the 3 most outstanding example, almost every character of the classroom has different level of adorableness and all are [[WorldOfBadass badasses]]

The main character Izuku Midoriya is a sweet, dorky and nerdy boy with super strength, outside of and an unflinching heroic spirit. When he first met Ochako, he turned beet red from the fact that you have his he just had a conversation with a girl.
** Ochako Uraraka herself is Izuku's
GenkiGirl friend who controls gravity gravity, and managed to even give Katsuki Bakugou a hard time during the U.A. Championship.
** Tsuyu Asui herself is
an UglyCute adorable frog girl with great skills, quick thinking and NervesOfSteel. NervesOfSteel.

** Surprisingly, even All Might counts for the trope, albeit in personality rather than looks; he's tall and imposing, but he also happens to be an {{Adorkable}} man with a heart as big as his muscles, and who has childish enthusiasm.

* The {{Mahjong}} anime ''Manga/{{Saki}}'' has three examples. Saki herself easily qualifies giving her [[{{Adorkable}} shy and]] [[ShrinkingViolet quiet personality]] as well as her [[TheWoobie woobie]] status. Koromo also definitely qualifies given her small and cute appearance. Nodoka could also qualify as well. All three of them are adorable and all three are plenty badass.

Added DiffLines:

** The Tontata tribe as well. They are small enough to be held on the palm of a human hand, with a big fluffy tail and round eyes. They are kind-hearted. They are extremely gullible. But They're also a tribe of PintSizedPowerhouse, possessing impressive strengh and able to [[SuperSpeed move so fast]] the average person can't see them.

** Sanae is a downplayed example; she's very cute alright, but she doesn't have any combat abilities. Still, her SuperReflexes are faster than any teenage girl's should be, enough to dodge Ika's tentacles; [[TooKinkyToTorture when she feels like it, at least]].

* ''Anime/WolfsRain,'' Toboe is the youngest and weakest member of the pack, but he finds the courage inside to [[spoiler: take down a colossal walrus by biting it in the eye and refusing to let go until it kills itself thrashing.]] He also bites [[spoiler: Darcia]] in the arm hard, but this [[spoiler: doesn't turn out so well for him.]]

** Sousuke, in his Bonta-kun mecha.

** Sousuke, in his Bonta-kun mecha.mecha; it combines Sousuke's natural badassery with a mascot's adorable, non-threatening appearance, making for a deceptively useful suit of PoweredArmor. Even the suit itself, having been upgraded and mass-produced by Sousuke, is good enough on its own to turn wimpy street thugs into competent soldiers.



** The titular protagonist is a cute, easily-excitable, naive and {{Adorkable}} young squid girl. Her tentacle hair can easily smash through concrete, go fast enough to break the sound barrier, and stretch to ridiculous exremes. The main reasons she hasn't made any progress on her goal of invading humanity are her silly antics, and Chizuru keeping her in check.

** 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.

** For that matter, Chizuru herself is nice and adorable, but [[BewareTheNiceOnes if you make her angry, you better be ready to haul ass]]. Her DeathGlare is terrifying, she can cut Ika's tentacles with her ''bare hands'', she's insanely fast, and almost superhumanly strong.

* ''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).

** 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.
