* ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' has Gabutyra, who has already established himself as a BadAss, getting a new SuperDeformed form that turns him into a BadassAdorable TransformationTrinket for [=KyoryuRed's=] SuperMode. He might look cute with the way he sometimes dances along to his partner's transformation dance, but he's still extremely powerful.

* River Tam of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' owes her popularity to this trope. She's played by the gorgeous Creator/SummerGlau who can pull off cute teenage looks very well, and River can kill people with her brain or use mathematics to shoot several very tough soldiers, especially if [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Simon's life is threatened.]] If it is, [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend River is going to hand those idiots their asses.]]
