** Alice counts, too. Cutest girl ever seen in the games. Extremely lethal sorceress to boot.
** The [[HelloInsertNameHere Protagonist]] of ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' is a seventeen-year-old who borders sometimes into childishly adorable. He's either an AllLovingHero, an EvilOverlord overseeing Humanity's RageAgainstTheHeavens, or the world's savior.

* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'':
** Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. His victory pose is to cutely scratch himself! Ken Amada, as a ten-year-old cute little boy, might also count. Hell, particularly the whole S.E.E.S. members is definitely this.
** The Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is certainly this, due to them being very good-looking and badass enough to take down anything that comes in their way. Naoto takes a special mention.
*** Naoto is the only party member with a license to carry weapons (specifically, firearms, which are even more heavily restricted), and at one point wins a high-school beauty contest ''by bailing on it'', since it's seen as [[{{Moe}} endearingly shy]].

* Creator/Atlus is fond with this trope.
** Most of the Frost family of ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' counts. [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Black Frost]] in [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne Nocturne]], to [[TheAce Batman fan Frost Ace]] and [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman the adorably-armored Demonee-Ho]] in ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney Strange Journey]]'', or [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking King Frost]], with the ''possible'' exception of series regular Jack Frost, who begins as a MascotMook and can {{Badass}} his way into becoming any of the prior examples.
** Alice counts, too. Cutest girl ever seen in the games. Extremely lethal sorceress to boot.
** The [[HelloInsertNameHere Protagonist]] of ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' is a seventeen-year-old who borders sometimes into childishly adorable. He's either an AllLovingHero, an EvilOverlord overseeing Humanity's RageAgainstTheHeavens, or the world's savior.
*** "Evil" Overlord is a bit fuzzy, his reasons are morally sound, the only reason it remotely comes close to fuzzy is because of [[{{God}} who he's taking down]]. Either way he's a savior, its just which method he chooses.
* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'':

*** Uncle Ryotaro Dojima takes his utterly adorable, seven-year-old daughter Nanako to the shooting range to train with him, by telling her it's a game. It is strongly implied that she is very good at the shooting game.



* Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. His victory pose is to cutely scratch himself! Ken Amada, as a ten-year-old cute little boy, might also count. The alternative female protagonist of the PSP version definitely does.



* Most of the Frost family of ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' counts. [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Black Frost]] in [[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne Nocturne]], to [[TheAce Batman fan Frost Ace]] and [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman the adorably-armored Demonee-Ho]] in ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney Strange Journey]]'', or [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking King Frost]], with the ''possible'' exception of series regular Jack Frost, who begins as a MascotMook and can {{Badass}} his way into becoming any of the prior examples.

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' -- Karol Capel and Estelle, who is surprisingly effective at battle given her gentle nature. Patty as well, in the PS3 version.

** There's also your character, who can [[spoiler: destroy the barrier]] [[BadassPacifist without dropping shed of blood]] or destroy the entire Underground despite being small, cute little kid, Papyrus, who is downplayed example, because he is more UglyCute than outright cute, but his {{Adorkable}} and [[NiceGuy absolutely sweet and supportive]] personality make him adorable, but he [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass still shouldn't be taken lightly]] and lastly, [[spoiler: Asriel, the king's son, the last boss on the Pacifist Route.]]

!!!Company Examples
* Creator/SquareEnix loves this trope. You've got [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Moogles]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Black Mages]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Tarutaru]], and even [[VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime Slimes with battle tanks]]. The [[KillerRabbit Tonberrys]] are adorable, but extremely dangerous if one underestimates them.
** There is a young, lovely, cute, spunky, aloof, innocent, friendly, childish GenkiGirl in almost every ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game: '''Rydia''', '''Krile''', '''Relm''', '''Yuffie''', '''Selphie''', '''Eiko''', '''Rikku''', '''Penelo''', '''Vanille'''. And all of them cover the {{Badass}} part of the trope. They are capable to decimate anything, be it with bombs, BlackMagic, SummonMagic or just oversized weapons that they shouldn't be able to carry.
** Selphie is willing to blow up a whole missile base, and that's just one of her moments. Not to mention she possesses the strongest Limit Break ''in the entire game'', called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The End]], which will ''wish the enemy into the flower fields'' in a one-hit KO. Worst of it all? ''It works on the final boss.''
** One of Vanille's "battle sayings" is "I'm not all flowers and sunshine!" In a sickeningly cute, sweet, sing-song voice. You could hear the jaws hit the floor when it was learned that [[{{Moe}} cute and cheery]] she had a summon that was a ''[[SmallGirlBigGun walking war machine]]''. Not to mention that she's [[spoiler:the harbinger of the apocalypse. {{Badass}} indeed]].
** '''Vivi''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. I mean, come on. The little cutie is the [[TheWoobie freakin' Woobie]], but if he gets angry and/or determined, he will own you.
** Also '''Tifa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Although less adorable than sexy, Tifa is a sweet and wholesome girl ([[{{Stripperific}} although she doesn't dress like one]]) who can dish out one of the biggest damage in the game, [[BarefistedMonk with her bare hands]]!
** Then there's '''Rinoa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', who is cute but also [[spoiler:a Sorceress]], and basically wields a large chakram that is shot from her wrist!
** '''Terra'''! MysteriousWaif of [[HalfHumanHybrid exotic ancestry]]? Check. PersonOfMassDestruction? Check. MamaBear? Oh so very, very check. (There is [[GodModeSue actually more]], but you get the idea). And in case you don't, Dissidia Final Fantasy sets Terra up as the girl who snuggles moogles, then frightens Kefka into shutting up.
*** And Gau. The cute, adorable little feral boy who was RaisedByWolves manages to wear out Sabin, the game's leading badass who can ''suplex a train'', calling it a ''dance''. In battle, Gau is a DiscOneNuke and a Disc Two [[StoneWall Tank]], who is capable of scratching like a cat for massive damage.
** HalfIdenticalTwins '''Palom''' and '''Porom''' are Badass Adorable ''twins''.
** '''Serah''', Lightning's little sister, is the main character of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII-2''. DamselInDistress no more. She possesses fighting skills on par with the party members from the original game now, and she's no less cute from it. Her victory pose is catching EmpathicWeapon and TeamPet Mog and giving him a hug.
** Yuna in Final Fantasy X. Adorable girl, not even at adulthood, ready to sacrifice her life to end the world's suffering, all with a smile.
** Aaaaaaaaaaaaand now we have ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy'', turning the WorldOfBadass seen in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' into a World Of Badass Adorable.
** Sora, Roxas, Ven and Xion from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. Still, the absolute best example is none other than '''Mickey Mouse''', who they managed to turn into freaking ''[[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]]'', of all things.
** His Badass quotient has only increased over the games. In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'', he's a support character that appears to cast spells. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII II]]'', he's playable whenever Sora is defeated, but can't actually finish off bosses (Although his agile combo actually makes him pretty good at wearing them down) . When ''358/2 Days'' made him playable, he was on about the same level as the other playable characters. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance Dream Drop Distance]]'' [[spoiler: he's capable of [[TimeStandsStill pulling a ZA WARUDO]] on every member of the new Organization XIII (including the Big Bads from ''I'' and ''II'') in time. The only person capable of resisting is the incarnation of Xehanort with power over time itself.]] All this from a former steamboat worker.
** Also from ''Dream Drop Distance'', we've got the Dream Eaters, both Spirit and Nightmare. From bouncing blue "[[WesternAnimation/CatDog cat-dogs]]" and purple bats, to electric snails and deers, and undead dinosaurs and [[KillerRabbit wizard rabbits]], they really suit the term "adorable killers".
** Aside from ''Final Fantasy'', ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' gives us Mr. Mew. An adorable little cat plush that could rip your eyes out.
** Max Caulfield and Chloe Price in ''VideoGame/{{Life Is Strange}}''.
*** For Max: She's a CuteClumsyGirl who has the power to [[TimeMaster REWIND TIME]].
*** For Chloe: After her former dad, William, died, she took a rebellious phase and TookALevelInBadass.
** Lara Croft in the ''VideoGame/{{Tomb Raider|2013}}'' game released in 2013. She always been cute but the 2013 game puts emphasis on her youth, innocence, and [[NaiveNewcomer overall inexperience]].
** Leah and Marcy from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.

!!!Specific Examples
* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' has Cocona Bartel in the second game. She's about ten years old or so, four-foot-nothing, wears her long hair in pigtails with two absurdly large hair ornaments, and is the main character's adopted little sister. She is a very cheery girl who is always willing to help her big brother and often pouts in the cutest way whenever he's late. Turns out that she accompanies her "big brother" on his knight missions, and fights by taking her hair ornaments off and using them as a sort of transforming baton weapon. Despite her size, she keeps up with the adult frontline fighters, including her older brother. And the kicker? She is a Reyvateil, a species that is usually kept in the back lines far away from the physical fighting. Also thanks to her BFS in her LimitBreak.
* Choko from ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'': at first she's a [[OneManArmy One Lolita Army]], then, she gets an upgrade and becomes a [[PersonOfMassDestruction Waif of Mass Destruction]].
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', there is a spell to summon a wild animal to help you in combat. The animals get progressively stronger depending on how good your character is with magick. They go from wolves to cougars, to tigers, to gorillas and finally, strongest of them all, ... a fluffy white bunny rabbit. Yes, the Vorpal Bunny is a level 40 creature with extremely high strength, maxed out melee and dodge skills and Master level proficiency in both.
* If you are going to call Mazzy, the halfling pseudo-paladin from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'' this, you're well advised to do it somewhere where she can't hear you.
-->'''Mazzy:''' ''I won't seem so cute when I break your legs!''
* Milly from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos Origins''. She's the sheltered daughter of an Alfard nobleman, and she has ''butterfly wings''. She also dual-wields clubs and can kick you across the room.
** Sagi probably counts as well.
** Mizuti in the original game initially seems more weird and quirky than adorable [[spoiler: until you see her face underneath the mask.]]
* Taokaka from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' may not look adorable, and she can be pretty deadly in combat, but just the way she talks and acts in her story mode in a game full of psychos, monsters, and jaded veterans, is just too damn cute.
** And then there's Carl Clover. The CheerfulChild who has the game's only ''[[GameBreaker infinite combo]]''.
** Also, Makoto Nanaya. A squirrel girl ([[IThoughtItMeant No,]] [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl not THAT one]]), with cute ears and a big bushy tail. However, [[spoiler:unless your name is [[MindRape Relius Clover]],]] messing around with her is a bad idea. [[MusclesAreMeaningless She's a small girl who can punch people]] [[BlownAcrossTheRoom and send them flying.]]
%% ** How has Noel Vermillion not been mentioned?
* ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' with his cute face and outfit, and oh did we mention BOMBS.



* Several characters from the ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire'' games. Seriously, just about any female character qualifies. The best example, though, is probably Peco from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII the third game]] who, despite looking like an anthropomorphic onion, can become possibly the most overpowered character in the series if you train him right.
* A few characters from ''VideoGame/CaveStory''. King is a Mimiga (a rabbit-man) who takes out [[RecurringBoss Balrog]] with a single swordstroke. Then there's Quote and Curly who... well, just look at [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cavestory-storminghell.gif this in-game art]], depicting them in the act of [[BrutalBonusLevel storming]] [[PlanetHeck Hell]].
* Violet from ''VideoGame/CelDamage'' is a cute demon girl who is one of the most aggressive characters in the game. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytwV531BwHs Her intro alone should tell you everything you need to know about her.]]
* Aurora from ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' is an adorable child princess who gets sent to a MagicalLand overrun by monsters. She uses a [[{{BFS}} sword that's almost as big as her]] and [[LightEmUp light magic]] to destroy said monsters.
* Villainous example: [[spoiler:Dark Emperor Griffon]] from ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' is [[spoiler:a child-sized [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic bunny rabbit]] from the Moon with adorable eyes and ears and who only got into this mess [[StartOfDarkness because he loved flowers so much]].]] He is also able to kick your ass 10 times over even ''without'' the power of the [[MacGuffin Atlamillia]].
** The heroes of the game, Max and Monica. Max is a cheerful young inventor who can make almost anything and his inventions never fail. He's also capable of piloting a Ridepod (robot) that can be armed with weapons ranging from [[PowerFist iron fists]] to [[MoreDakka machine guns]] and [[MacrossMissileMassacre portable missile platforms]]. Monica is a pink-haired MagicKnight from the future who's not only capable of holding her own in a fight, she's also a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething princess leading a resistance movement against the forces of Griffon]].
* Most of the cast of the ''VideoGame/DanballSenki'' series, which was produced by the same company. Little kids controlling tiny robots that can be armed to the teeth with any and ''every'' weapon known to man, including {{BFS}}s, {{BFG}}s, spears, rifles, bladed knuckles, bombs, and CHAINSAWS to preform badass finishers that, in reality, would turn your living room into the embodiment of a war-zone. make of that as you will.
** Said robots have also been used in the game's anime to preform ''and'' prevent kidnappings, (attempted) assassinations, professional hacking jobs, robberies, and a worldwide terrorist plot. Again, make of it as you will.
* Felicia from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series, acts more catlike than human and is just too damn cute.
%%* The heroes from ''VideoGame/DeBlob''.
%%* Dewy from ''DewysAdventure''.
* The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games:
** Princess Sapphire Rhodonite is a relatively straight example, as most fans find her [[AxCrazy psychotic outbursts]] amidst the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} demeanor make her even ''more'' adorable... in a [[{{Yandere}} deranged and troubling sort of way]].
** Kurtis seems to get this a lot since he reincarnated as a Prinny. Nevermind the fact that he still has the same deep voice and [[{{Badass}} his]] [[HotBlooded character]] is still as it always was.
** Raspberyl, a FunSize [[TokenMiniMoe loli]], number one delinquent, and self-proclaimed badass who shows it with her magical prowess.
** Laharl, the cutest little Overlord ever.
** Desco, a living weapon of mass destruction and {{Moe}} little sister of sorts who aspires to be a FinalBoss someday.
** LoveFreak Flonne. Cutest archangel ever. One of her special attacks involves proclaiming "Love is a miracle!" while beating the crap out of the enemy in a spray of hearts.
** Prinnies are AdorableEvilMinions who can be quite destructive at high levels. [[ActionBomb Or when thrown.]]
%% ** Plenair.
* Tiny Kong of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' fame is a cute little monkey girl whose main ability is getting even littler. Yet she's willing, even ''eager'' to "kick some reptile butt", and is perfectly capable of doing so while shrunk. And in the minigame "Krazy Kong Klamour", while the boys are all cowering at the prospect of being shot with a watermelon, she's taking up a ''fighting stance''.
* Dog from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. While outwardly he's a BigFriendlyDog the size of a small pony, he's actually a Mabari; a special breed of War-dogs created by Tevinter Magisters to be as intelligent as a human. Contingents of Mabari have traditionally served as elite units in the Ferelden army and used for breaking enemy formations and taking down ''Knights''. While travelling with the Warden, Dog will jump headfirst into the fray and tear his enemies to pieces, before coming back covered in blood, wagging his tail and waiting to be scratched behind the ears by his Master. Sten considers him a [[WorthyOpponent true warrior]], Oghren is convinced he's trying to [[SitcomArchNemesis steal his pants]] and Morrigan complains that he keeps leaving dead rabbits in her pack, because he thinks she [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking needs to]] [[ForgetsToEat eat more]].
** And of course, [[{{Expy}} his counterpart]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Hawke's companions will occasionally come to their home simply to visit the Dog, Varric plays regular games of cards with him and Aveline even asks to borrow him to help train the Kirkwall City Guard, so they can learn how people in Ferelden [[BringMyBrownPants don't soil themselves]] when they see a massive Mabari charging at them.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' there is also Merrill. She's a thin, naive, innocent, sweet-natured, easily distracted, practicing blood mage and Demon Summoner who becomes a MotorMouth when nervous. She also has only offensive magic and vicious combat buffs, not even the slightest healing spell, and fearsome drive to revive the glory of Arlathan for which she is willing to sacrifice her life. Absolutely ''{{Adorkable}}'' and she can a-splode you from half a mile away with her mind.
* Ness from ''VideoGame/{{Earthbound}}''. A lovable twelve year old boy who likes baseball. Who can also make things explode with his mind.
* VideoGame/EccoTheDolphin, of course, being both a [[CaptainObvious dolphin]] and the protagonist of a brutally difficult action/adventure game series, would obviously qualify as this, but it tends towards FridgeBrilliance when you consider that the label BadassAdorable arguably applies to real-life dolphins as well.
* From ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'':
** The twins, March and Salsa. A pair of a adorable 8-year-old girls, one sweet and polite, the other something of a hothead. They wield twin chakrams, have access to powerful moves, and... are those ''sharp teeth'' and miniature ''skulls'' on those necklaces? On the other hand, their headgear is reminiscent of bunnies.
** Beat, an 8-year-old boy who is sort of like a younger brother to Allegretto. He wields a repeating rifle with precision.
** Polka, a sweet young teen with [[IllGirl an unspecified illness]]. Her [[ParasolOfPain parasol is a powerful weapon]], and she has some good magic in her arsenal.
* Veronica from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. She's a sarcastic StraightGay Brotherhood Scribe, with a compulsion against showing her hair. She's also [[MegatonPunch very good with a Power Fist]]. Being voiced by FeliciaDay might also have something to do with this.
** Also, ED-E the SuperPrototype Eyebot, a floating little robot that plays a catchy little tune when flying into combat armed with a laser and a perk that practically gives you max Perception.
* Quite a few characters from ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' can turn out this way.
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Amelia]] can take this to an absurd degree if you make her into a General. Basically, she remains an adorable teenage girl in all of the cutscenes, but on the battlefield she's seven feet tall, covered from head to toe in plate mail, and wields weapons that make Cloud's Buster Sword look like a toothpick. Combine this with positively absurd stat-growth and you have what is basically a walking wall of certain death. An adorable, shy wall of certain death. Ross is a HotBlooded boy who idolizes his RetiredBadass dad but is quite the sweetheart to others, and Ewan is a cheery prankster with a talent for magic. Raise them well and promote the first one into either a [[BoisterousBruiser Berserker or a Warrior]], while making the other [[BlackMagic a Summoner or a Druid]]. The ''three'' trainees absolutely {{Moe}} killing machines - and double if you [[RelationshipValues get any of the boys to A Support level with Amelia.]]
** Also Lilina from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sword Of Seals]]'' and Nino of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]''.
** [[spoiler: Princess]] Julia Bahara from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' is a PrincessClassic with a high amount of {{Moe}} ([[http://i43.tinypic.com/1zwn1qq.jpg See her here.]]), [[TheWoobie who's very shy and somewhat depressed (she's usually depicted as crying. A lot.)]] Mind you, she's a GlassCannon stat wise, and would be that way but usually she's got one of two weapons, one is her trademark "Resire" which makes her practically invincible, the other is a stacked GameBreaker- as she is already, her [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus 20]] Tome, Naga, which, increases her stats by 20 (ignoring the {{Cap}}s, oh and that tome? It fires a Dragon at her hapless foes.
** And there's plenty more in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius canon]]: Queen Elincia, Mia, Mist, Sanaki, Ilyana, Rolf, Marcia, Nephenee, Astrid... Take your pick!
** Most of the female manaketes throughout the series (Tiki, Fa, Myrrh, and Nowi, to be specific) definitely qualify.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes this trope to new levels with [[spoiler:Lucina]]. In the battlefield she's arguably the most badass female character in the entire game, only contested by a female Avatar, and easily enters the Top 5 of the entire series (and that's saying a LOT). But during her support conversations and quite a few cutscences, you just want to hug her dearly just out of sheer cuteness!
** Nowi, a cute sweet Adorable little girl who loves to play whose really a Manatake - [[OlderThanTheyLook a race of beings who are live for centuries]] who turn into giant dragons to toast their enemies.
*** Nah, Cynthia, Noire, both versions of Morgan...Awakening has quite a few characters that qualify for this.
*** Ricken. Just don't call him adorable.
*** Let's not forget the Avatar, whether male or female. In this game you can customize your PlayerCharacter's looks, and one of the three prospect Body Builds you're offered is one of a boy or a girl who seems to be 14 years old ''tops'', and can have his/her hairstyles and expressions also arranged to your whims. This means, you can make your PlayerCharacter the most badass PersonOfMassDestruction... and one who looks like a super adorable kid while laying the smackdown on the enemy.
* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has the three main playable characters ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent Lilac]], {{C|uteKitten}}arol and [[PreciousPuppy Milla]]) as this.
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has Missile, a yappy little Pomeranian who is adorable even by Pomeranian standards. After he dies [[spoiler: for the second time, he gains ghost trick powers. His reach is far longer than Sissel's and he has the ability to swap objects of different sizes, even huge stone statues.]]
** [[spoiler: And in an alternate timeline he waited ''[[TheSlowPath ten years]]'' for the events of that night to play out again, so this time he could convince Sissel to help Lynne.]]
** [[spoiler:Sissel]] is also this, considering he's [[spoiler:actually a little black cat]]. At the end, he's a [[spoiler:little black ''[[CuteKitten kitten]]'']]. Awwww.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' games adore this trope, and usually at least one playable member is a young, adorable teenager with SquishyWizard and/or GlassCannon tendencies at the ''least''.
** Sveta in ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' is a champion of this trope, a ridiculously {{Moe}} [[MemeticMutation kitty-dog]]... deer... [[PettingZooPeople furry person]], who is the series' first warrior-type [[BlowYouAway Wind]] [[ShockAndAwe Adept]] and the series' first true ActionGirl (most have been [[BlackMagicianGirl primarily casters]]). And this is before you [[AwesomeButImpractical sack all her Djinn]] to [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent turn her into a giant anthropomorphic wolf]] who backhands bosses across the room.
** And let's not forget that thirty years before being a snarky pirate in Dark Dawn, Eoleo was a [[{{Adorkable}} dorky toddler]] with BlindingBangs who could wrap his [[NeverMessWithGranny great-grandma]] [[CutenessProximity around his little finger]] and ''[[GooGooGodlike blew up Alhafra's prison with his mind]]'' to rescue his daddy. D'awwwwww!
* May from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Bridget may also qualify [[WholesomeCrossdresser if you're into that sort of thing]].
* Practically any character (even ''yours'') in ''VideoGame/HappyWars''.
* Every character in ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'', some of whom can and have stop flaming soccer balls with their ''bare hands and/or legs'' and have preformed [[FinishingMove kickass shots]] after [[TookALevelInBadass major level grinding]]. Oh, and they're all in junior high, with most of the main cast putting regular [[{{Lolicon}} Shotas]] to shame.
** And they're successors in ''GO!'', who can summon Kenshin; giant avatars capable of wiping the soccer field with you in one fell swoop.
* From ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', Pit!. He's cheerful and dorky, he's skilled with pretty much every kind of weapon ever, and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu he regularly kicks the asses of GODS.]]
* The Pet Dragon from ''VideoGame/KingsBounty: Armored Princess''. Basically, a winged technicolored [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]], who likes to play with a little snail and dance around his pot tree ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSBQReA4tn0 check him out]]). Oh, look, he's summoning fountains of lava to engulf the enemies in searing agony, conjures lightning balls and finishes the surviviors off with a somersault kick. Awww!



* The entire point of ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou'', but especially Kan'u. Even more so in the first game.



* ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'', anybody? He's an adorable cat-like creature with big long ears. He could also throw you across the screen.
* T3-M4 from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and its sequel. Particularly [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] in the sequel, where at one point he casually shuts down [[AxCrazy HK-47]] when he starts getting too snoopy.
** Not to mention single-handedly demolishing ''three'' HK-50 droids at once on Nar Shaddaa. In one-on-one combat.
** T3's SpiritualSuccessor in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', T7-01, definitely counts. A cute little astromech droid [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld who hasn't had a memory wipe for at least two centuries]], considers himself the true hero of the story (partially justifiable, considering that [[BeenThereShapedHistory he had front row seats to the start of the last war]]) and is the first astromech droid who had his language translated - and he is speaking in equations! That is the first companion character a Jedi Knight gets. [[BewareTheNiceOnes He is a tank]].
** Jedi Consulars get Nadia Grell for a Padawan. The SpoiledSweet daughter of a Senator (and only known Force Sensitive member of her species) who looks like a strong breeze could whisk her away, utterly {{Adorkable}}...and things ''explode'' when she gets too excited because she has the strongest raw talent in Force telekenesis the Order's seen in a generation.
** On the Imperial side of ''The Old Republic'' we have the Bounty Hunter's first companion [[HitmanWithAHeart Mako]]. Despite working in a distinctly amoral career she constantly supports light-sided actions and takes the time to comfort a woman terrified out of her mind after you two just shot your way into the building. As for the badass side of the equation, we'll let the girl speak for herself:
--> "I'm not just the pretty sidekick, buster!"
** Hunters also get Blizz. He's a Jawa, ya know those cute robed little guys with glowy yellow eyes? He's small, even by their standards. Calls you "Boss." As excitable and cheery as a sugar-high squirrel. Somehow manages to carry a ''[[MoreDakka rocket-launcher]]'' under his cloak. Mechanically, he's ''a [[PintSizedPowerhouse tank]].''
** Also on the Imperial side we have Ashara, the Sith Inquisitor's melee DPS. She's calm, quiet, contemplative, gets rather nervous when the possibility of a relationship is approached, and will murder you with [[DualWielding two lightsabers]] if she feels it's necessary.
** Treek, a companion you get via Microtransactions is an Ewok who is geared as a tank/healer hybrid and is a pretty vicious little ankle-biter despite the fact that she's about two-feet tall.
* A number of champions from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' are members of the local "adorable midget" race, the yordles, like Poppy the Iron Ambassador and Veigar the Tiny Master of Evil.
** And Fizz. He's the cutest sea critter in the league that strongly resembles to [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]]. But then... [[ThreateningShark "SHARK!!"]]
** Nami is a benevolent mermaid who's super cute and a FriendToAllLivingThings ... with the ability to trap you inside a bubble and send a gigantic tidal wave crashing down on you.
* Young Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is a downright adorable child who attracts a lot of puppy love from many equally adorable girls. He's also pretty skilled with a sword, and able to take down hostile monsters with relative ease. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', he manages to perform even bigger feats like fighting off aliens with a bow and arrow, chasing down a mechanical goat, becoming the captain of an army of skeletons, and ''suplexing a giant sand worm!'' His Deku and Goron forms are cute and badass in their own ways.
** The Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker,'' despite [[BadassNormal not even being related to the other Links]], manages to succeed where the other Links in his timeline failed and ''kill Ganondorf for good'' while looking cute as a button the entire time.
** Many incarnations of Zelda herself count, especially in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' where she can take over a giant walking suit of armor while still retaining a cute/innocent personalty.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': Midna as well, at least in her "imp" form.
* VideoGame/{{LEGO Adaptation Game}}s are known to do this: first we have ''LEGO Star Wars'', that allows the player to re-live ''all'' the series' [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Awesome Moments]] while playing as LEGO minifigures. Then came ''LEGO Batman'', that is just this side of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' in terms of sheer badassness. And now we got ''LEGO Harry Potter'' and ''LEGO Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''... you name it, really.
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet's'' Sackboy. Powers of a god. Time manipulation, matter control, creation and destruction, and immortality (If you're playing the level editor). And as Yahtzee put it, he "looks like the result of a sinister experiment to concentrate cuteness to a weaponized level for use against angry girlfriends".
* The titular Little King in LittleKingsStory. A 3-foot tall child who [[TakeOverTheWorld takes over the world]], frees and marries ''seven'' princesses, and opens up [[SealedBadassInACan sealed cans of Badass]] just to punch them out.
* Juliet Starling from ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw''. A cute blonde cheerleader who kills zombies with a pink chainsaw. Enough said.
* Being a {{Doujinshi}} FightingGame that {{cross|over}}es five different CuteWitch animes (those being ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'', ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagohime'', ''Anime/PrincessComet'', ''Fan Fan Pharmacy'', and ''Kasumin''), ''VideoGame/MagicalChaserStardustOfDreams'' has these ''for every playable character''. Yes, even [[DarkMagicalGirl Meteo and Bibin]]
%%* Princess, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/MagicalPopN''.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** In [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]], [[HotScientist Liara]] and [[WrenchWench Tali]]. Liara is a socially awkward archaeologist that has never been in a relationship before, and can scatter enemy troopers like papers in a hurricane and crush tanks like tin cans. Tali is NaiveNewcomer that, similarly to Liara, has never been in a relationship, but can shut down your shields, make your weapons explode, and poison your nervous system with a few taps on her omni-tool.
*** Note that, [[CerebusSyndrome with the serious turn towards the dark]] that happens in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the "adorable" factor for these two gets reduced. In the two years between the games, [[spoiler:Shepard's death, Cerberus' attack on the Migrant Fleet, Liara's newfound obsession with the Shadow Broker]], and the Collector attacks, the galaxy has become a ''much'' rougher place, particularly for these two. Tali becomes adorable (and {{Adorkable}}) again in her romance, as does Liara if you have ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' added. By the time ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' rolls around, though, Liara and Tali are just as hard and [[WarIsHell weary]] as every other character.
** [[spoiler:Legion]], among other badass [[ColdSniper desig]][[FriendlySniper nations]], also qualifies as Badass {{Adorkable}}.
** The ''Retaliation'' DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' allows you to play as a volus in multiplayer.
* Dr. Fetus from ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]''. He may be pretty ugly and be disgusting in some ways, like when you really acknowledge that he's a fetus, but that little fetus body is just adorable!
** Really, almost the entire cast qualifies. Yes, even [[BadassInDistress Bandage Girl.]]



* Sunny from ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Solid 4]]''. Seven years old, cute as a button, and able to take down an AI that has effectively taken over the world.
** Otacon, too, for that matter. Combine his male-{{Meganekko}}-osity, shyness, niceness, and nerdiness with his genius hacker-dom, the fact that he's the creator of freakin' Metal Gear Rex, and his HeroicSacrifice tendencies, and you get one true BadassAdorable.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' you travel a many Earth-sized world on your own (or with a small handful of friends), hunting and gathering to keep yourself fed enough to stay alive, building your own homes and even ''cities'' from scratch out of wild and underground raw materials, slaying hundreds upon hundreds of undead and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, smelting metals into your own TwentyFourHourArmor, mastering arcane magic and navigating the [[DeathWorld netherworld]]. All while being a cartoonish toylike being BuiltWithLEGO.



** Most of main party from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' belongs here (To an extent, even Duster, thanks to the art style). Lucas is a shy and kind young boy, Kumatora is a cute but brash and tomboyish young princess, and Boney is an adorable and devoted dog. They also fight tons of freakish and powerful monsters in their quest to restore peace to the Nowhere Islands.
* ''Every'' single playable character of the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' games can be considered as one.
* ''VideoGame/NinjabreadMan'' -- A cute, little cookie that so happens to know self-defense. Too bad the game blows.
%%* Prince Cornelius and Mercedes from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'': Never has [[AGodIsYou divinity]] been so... so... fluffy. Unless you're a goblin (or some other disposable monstrosity), you can ignore Amaterasu's '''other''' [[NobleWolf defining characteristic]]. Seriously, she won't even mind if you walk right up to pet her; Kushinada does this ''every'' time she sees Ammy. It helps that [[InvisibleToNormals half the cast thinks she's just an ordinary dog]] [[DudeWheresMyRespect even after she saves them]], calling her Fluffy, Poochie, Fido, Wolfy, Furball, Snowy, Mutt, ''Powderpuff''...
** And if you thought Amaterasu couldn't get any more adorable, the GaidenGame ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' one-ups the original by making the player character (named ''Chibi''terasu) [[http://www.destructoid.com/okamiden-s-little-wolf-puppy-is-the-cutest-thing-ever-147254.phtml a tiny puppy dog instead]]. For an added bonus ([[RidiculouslyCuteCritter if one was necessary]]), he spends most of the game carrying around kids on his back, most of whom are at least ''some'' degree of BadassAdorable in and of themselves. And, like his mother, Chibi [[DudeWheresMyRespect can't catch a break in the name department]], being variously referred to as Mutt, Pooch, [[TotallyRadical Dude]], and Squiddy.
** Made even more adorable in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', in which Ammy is a playable character.
* VideoGame/{{Opoona}}, Copoona, and Poleena all look like Playskool figurines. All of them fight the forces that corrupt half an entire planet.
** This is pretty much their [[PlanetOfHats species hat]] in fact, to the point that their planet's constitution reads more like a warrior code.
* Kooh from ''VideoGame/{{Pangya}}''. The 11 year old TokenMiniMoe is also a pirate captain who hauls around a cannon and rides a giant bomb.
* [[AdorableEvilMinions Turrets]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' games. They will shoot the crap out of anything they target, but the things they say are incredibly adorable.
%%* Patapon and Zigoton warriors in ''VideoGame/{{Patapon}}''. Music enhances that.
* Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. His victory pose is to cutely scratch himself! Ken Amada, as a ten-year-old cute little boy, might also count. The alternative female protagonist of the PSP version definitely does.
* Nippon Ichi also brought us Marona, of ''PhantomBrave'' fame: thirteen-year old orphan who just wants to be happy and make friends. Is also a mercenary-for-hire with an army of phantoms, routinely hired to go into some of the most inhospitable places in Ivoire to deal with supernatural threats and attacking armies, managed to slay a legendary monster that the legendary hero Scarlet only succeeded in sealing away, and spearheads the operation to defeat the game's BigBad. (To say nothing of the postgame content.) Thanks to the game mechanics, it's also perfectly permissible to make her a LightningBruiser and have her curb-stomp enemies way above her own level without having to rely on her army.
* As stated, a good number of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and even their trainers.
** All "cute legendaries" (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, Victini) qualify. Notably Jirachi has a [[FacelessEye creepy eye]], Celebi can TimeTravel, and Shaymin transforms into a more badass form.
** The protagonists and their rivals are almost always this, except for a few side game ones who are older.
** Dragonite. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qe9O90cD80 It flies and shoots hyper beams!]]
** [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Iris]] is one. Drayden's assistant in ''Black'', Gym Leader in ''White'' and [[TookALevelInBadass Champion]] in [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 the sequels]]. She also pretends to do a roar at the beginning of battle... and then she sends out a Hydreigon.
** Ukulele Pichu from ''Guardian Signs''. Unlike all other Pokémon, it will still do the assist even if it's hit by BeamSpam/whatever-attack of Pokémon engineered to be the most powerful one (Mewtwo) [[spoiler:'''or even the god ITSELF (Arceus)''']].
** Sylveon of Gen VI immediately gained this reputation once people learned of its type and what it's capable of doing. That badass Garchomp you're holding? Sylveon will eat it and ask for seconds.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', any baby Pokémon you catch in the wild (Azurill, Budew, Riolu, etc.) will always have 3 maxed out [=IVs=].[[note]]Individual Values; basically genes that determine how high a Pokemon's stats can be trained.[[/note]]
** Goodra, a adorable slime dragon who is very friendly, loves giving it's trainers hugs, can take special attacks like a tank and hits like one as well.
** Pikachu, in ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament''. The way he crosses his arms and scowls, it looks like it's trying to imitate [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi Mishima]], and looks all the cuter for it. The similarities to one of ''Tekken'''s poster boys doesn't end there, though: it can also use a handful of Mishima-style Karate techniques. While Pikachu in the main series was generally of this trope, this one takes that UpToEleven.
*** Similarly, Pikachu Libre, a second, female, Pikachu who happens to be wearing a masked wrestler outfit and using bonecrushing throws, while still being an adorable Pikachu. Her trainer will even call her "adorably tough!"
** Azumarill. It looks like an adorable cross between [[KillerRabbit a rabbit]] and a beach ball. It's typing, movepool, and abilities makes it one of the game's [[LethalJokeCharacter most effective dragon slayers]].
** CuteMonsterGirl Lopunny joins the ranks thanks to her new Mega Evolution. Gains lots of speed, attack, and the [[BareFistedMonk Fighting]] Type.
** Arcanine. Aww, it's a big fluffy dog, and its pre-evolved Growlithe form is a little fluffy puppy. It just so happens that Arcanine is a big fluffy dog that's 6' tall, 350 pounds, and breathes fire. [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m43a9bhqgL1qczibyo1_500.gif Anyone that tries to harm its trainer wil be sent into orbit]].
* The ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' series gives us Emmy Altava, a young woman who was the Professor's first assistant. She's sweet, she [[TheSnarkKnight likes her zingers]], she's a [[SupremeChef good cook]], and, when push comes to shove, she's a [[ActionGirl hyper competent]] [[KickChick fighter.]]
* The campers of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are all pre-teen psychics in-training. Most notable is Raz, who not only learns several potent psychic techniques but is also a skilled acrobat due to his life as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Gypsy]] CircusBrat.
* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''. A cute little fuzzy alien with big round eyes, an incredibly expressive face, and enough weaponry to take down a dozen intergalactic armies..... literally, and his cute little robot friend, a secret agent who can grow into a Godzilla sized living weapon and control time. Saving all of time and space while looking incredibly cute.
* ''Franchise/{{Rayman}}'' and all his friends. His [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many, many friends]] (even if most of them are just glorified {{Palette Swap}}s).
* Rebecca Chambers, from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series. Originally just a pixie-esque medic, we later learn that she fought her way through a night of Lovecraftian horrors before Chris Redfield ever saw his first zombie. Also, in her cameo in the "Mercenaries Reunion" mode in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5,'' she sets people on fire.
* Leanne from ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate'', even in-Universe. Several [=NPCs=] ''gush'' about how adorable she is, and as for being a badass... well, she can gun down a tank or two.
* Micah, the main character from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory3'', is a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human, half-monster hybrid]], and has the ability to transform between a human and monster form. Of course, his monster form is that of an adorable, fluffy sheep-like creature called a Wooly, and looks like [[http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/100/1001217/rune-factory-3-a-fantasy-harvest-moon-20090706100540754_640w.jpg this.]] The "badass" part comes in when he defeats countless giant monsters in that form with his bear paws.
* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' features a couple:
** Taupy is basically a living teddy bear, but he has a ridiculously powerful flurry attack combo that makes him a LightningBruiser. He has a [[LarynxDissonance deep voice]] and tough guy demeanor, but that doesn't stop Kyrie from calling him a stuffed animal (not that Taupy likes it).
** Rhi'a is a CuteMonsterGirl dragonkin. Aside from Taupy, she's the smallest to join your team, an ElegantGothicLolita, and she enjoys being a bit of a playful {{troll}} at times (particularly to [[ButtMonkey Agan]]). She's also a crack shot with a pair of revolvers and can transform into a more draconic version of herself to deal damage with her claws.
** TheHero Kyrie is a young {{Bishonen}} who's lead a very sheltered life thus far and knows little about the world outside Barni Village; his naivete, {{nice|Guy}}ness, and [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed idealism]] can evoke protective instincts. In addition to {{squee}}ing about Taupy being small and cute, his infatuation with Morte is so obvious it's comical and even endearing. While he's not incompetent at the start of the game, he later [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level]] and becomes able to wipe the floor with just about any opponent.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'''s resident {{Moe}}-fanbait is Sanada Yukimura -- [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed]], [[SkilledButNaive naive]], [[UndyingLoyalty intensely loyal]], [[{{keigo}} incredibly polite]]...and [[ChasteHero completely oblivious to all things sexual]]. He's also the most stupidly HotBlooded ScreamingWarrior in the series and looks like a fluffy puppy.



* [[KickChick Chun Li]] from ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. She may be the "strongest woman in the world", but when she wins a match she jumps up and down girlishly and shouts "yatta!"
** Sakura fits as well with various stereotypical 'schoolgirl' entries, fighting in a sailor suit and having a huge crush on Ryu that she seldom bothers to hide.
** Makoto is the [[{{Moe}} cutest]] karate girl ever! [[{{Ninja}} Ibuki]] and her cute [[AnimeHair hairstyle]] is also heart-wrenchingly cute as well!
** Whenever Elena isn't busy battling in the arena, she's even busier making and hanging out with friends.
* [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Pit!]] He's cheerful and dorky, he's skilled with pretty much every kind of weapon ever, and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu he regularly kicks the asses of GODS.]]
* Meracle Chamlotte from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'' doesn't seem all that badass at first glance, being a {{Stripperific}} {{Moe}} {{Catgirl}}, but once you max out her Critical skill and get her some decent equipment her multi-hit killer moves become absurdly deadly; she can clear the field with a single [[DeathOfAThousandCuts Claws of Fury]] that scores something on the order of a dozen consecutive critical hits.
* Several characters from the VideoGame/BreathOfFire games. Seriously, just about any female character qualifies. The best example, though, is probably Peco from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII the third game]] who, despite looking like an anthropomorphic onion, can become possibly the most overpowered character in the series if you train him right.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' with his cute face and outfit, and oh did we mention BOMBS.
* Micah, the main character from ''VideoGame/RuneFactory3'', is a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human, half-monster hybrid]], and has the ability to transform between a human and monster form. Of course, his monster form is that of an adorable, fluffy sheep-like creature called a Wooly, and looks like [[http://dsmedia.ign.com/ds/image/article/100/1001217/rune-factory-3-a-fantasy-harvest-moon-20090706100540754_640w.jpg this.]] The "badass" part comes in when he defeats countless giant monsters in that form with his bear paws.
* The {{anime}} fanmade versions of the commandos from ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer Red Alert 3'', lovely.



* The entire point of ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou'', but especially Kan'u. Even more so in the first game.
* Young Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' is a downright adorable child who attracts a lot of puppy love from many equally adorable girls. He's also pretty skilled with a sword, and able to take down hostile monsters with relative ease. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', he manages to perform even bigger feats like fighting off aliens with a bow and arrow, chasing down a mechanical goat, becoming the captain of an army of skeletons, and ''suplexing a giant sand worm!'' His Deku and Goron forms are cute and badass in their own ways.
** The Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker,'' despite [[BadassNormal not even being related to the other Links]], manages to succeed where the other Links in his timeline failed and ''kill Ganondorf for good'' while looking cute as a button the entire time.
** Many incarnations of Zelda herself count, especially in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' where she can take over a giant walking suit of armor while still retaining a cute/innocent personalty.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': Midna as well, at least in her "imp" form.

to:

* The entire point ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' packs a few, being one of ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou'', but especially Kan'u. Even Nippin Ichi's more serious titles. You have Danette, cute, ditzy and slightly amnesiac who tears through enemies with knives and regularily makes remarks about snapping peoples' necks (and actually does so in to one of your allies). Trish, a refined merchant's daughter, always positive and cheerful, who leads a mercenary company. And then there are the first game.
angels. Cute little baby-like guys... ''armed with guns''.
* Young Link from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' Being a fighting game with a variety of characters, the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' is a downright bound to have some adorable child folks kicking ass. Although the biggest one is probably Pyrrha Alexandra, who attracts a lot of puppy love from many equally adorable girls. He's also pretty skilled with a sword, and is able to take [[spoiler: wield [[EvilWeapon SoulEdge]] without losing her soul to it.]]
* You can make one in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' if you're clever enough.
* Meracle Chamlotte from ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'' doesn't seem all that badass at first glance, being a {{Stripperific}} {{Moe}} {{Catgirl}}, but once you max out her Critical skill and get her some decent equipment her multi-hit killer moves become absurdly deadly; she can clear the field with a single [[DeathOfAThousandCuts Claws of Fury]] that scores something on the order of a dozen consecutive critical hits.

arena, she's even busier making and hanging out with friends.



* Every character in ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'', some of whom can and have stop flaming soccer balls with their ''bare hands and/or legs'' and have preformed [[FinishingMove kickass shots]] after [[TookALevelInBadass major level grinding]]. Oh, and they're all in junior high, with most of the main cast putting regular [[{{Lolicon}} Shotas]] to shame.
** And they're successors in ''GO!'', who can summon Kenshin; giant avatars capable of wiping the soccer field with you in one fell swoop.
* And lets not forget most of the cast of the ''VideoGame/DanballSenki'' series, which was produced by the same company. Little kids controlling tiny robots that can be armed to the teeth with any and ''every'' weapon known to man, including {{BFS}}s, {{BFG}}s, spears, rifles, bladed knuckles, bombs, and CHAINSAWS to preform badass finishers that, in reality, would turn your living room into the embodiment of a war-zone. make of that as you will.
** Said robots have also been used in the game's anime to preform ''and'' prevent kidnappings, (attempted) assassinations, professional hacking jobs, robberies, and a worldwide terrorist plot. Again, make of it as you will.

to:

* Every character ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' gives us several examples. There's Latooni, TheWoobie who is also arguably the best pilot in ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'', some of whom can the OriginalGeneration games; Mai Kobayashi, {{Tykebomb}}, one-time end-game boss, and have stop flaming soccer balls with their ''bare hands and/or legs'' adorable in the extreme; Ibis Douglas, the luckless but tenacious flat chested girl; and have preformed [[FinishingMove kickass shots]] after [[TookALevelInBadass major level grinding]]. Oh, even the villain of the second OriginalGeneration game Einst Alfimi, ridiculously {{moe}} and they're all ridiculously broken once you manage to recruit her.
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' Examples:
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' -- Collette Brunel, Presea Combatir, and Genis Sage
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' -- Marta Lualdi
** Also Emil. You just wanna hug him... then [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan smack him
in junior high, with most the face and tell him to get a hold of himself]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' -- Surprise, surprise... [[PantheraAwesome Eugene Gallardo]]. Though not in
the main cast putting regular [[{{Lolicon}} Shotas]] to shame.
game, but is described in ''[[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' as "big, fluffy, cute, huggable" by VideoGame/{{T|alesOfTheAbyss}}ear. Mao could qualify, as well.
** And they're successors in ''GO!'', ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' -- Karol Capel and Estelle, who can summon Kenshin; giant avatars is surprisingly effective at battle given her gentle nature. Patty as well, in the PS3 version.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' -- Sophie. Just see it for yourself if you don't [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0RT_Sg7K2E believe]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJGify05etQ it]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' -- Arche Klaine and Suzu Fujibayashi
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' -- Anise Tatlin
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'' -- Meredy, one of the cutest video game characters ever but also
capable of wiping out the soccer field enemy with you in one fell swoop.
* And lets not forget
her summons.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' -- Ruca Milda
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' -- Elise Lutus. Quite possibly the
most adorable out of all the cast of examples.
* Several fighters from
the ''VideoGame/DanballSenki'' ''Franchise/{{Tekken}}'' series, which was produced by the same company. Little kids controlling tiny robots that can be armed to the teeth with any and ''every'' weapon known to man, including {{BFS}}s, {{BFG}}s, spears, rifles, bladed knuckles, bombs, (but not limited to) Ling Xiaoyu (all-around friendly GenkiGirl who one day dreams of building an amusement park), [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Panda]] (pet/bodyguard of Xiaoyu), Lili de Rochefort (SpoiledSweet with love for street fighting) and CHAINSAWS to preform badass finishers that, in reality, would turn your living room Alisa Bosconovitch (cute, rose-haired girl who is actually a robot with [[ChainsawGood chainsaws built into her arms]]).
* One of
the embodiment default animals in ''VideoGame/TokyoJungle'' is a feral Pomeranian dog... who is still able to bring down gazelles with a well-timed Clean Kill.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''. Quite a ''lot''
of a war-zone. make the Girls of Gensokyo are [[{{Moe}} really, really cute]], and they all either have [[SuperPowerLottery crazy powers]] or plenty of [[BulletHell danmaku]] with which to protect themselves.
** Perhaps the best example here: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Flandre Scarlet]]. A CheerfulChild, who loves her sister so much
that as you will.
** Said robots have also
she really ''doesn't mind'' having been used locked in the game's anime basement for the past 495 years. And she canonically has the [[PersonOfMassDestruction power to preform ''and'' destroy]] [[InformedAbility absolutely anything]] at all. That's on top of enough firepower to [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength utterly annihilate]] most humans she tries to play with. And you would never know it by [[http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll293/Lyco_7/akibakko-119366801257386.jpg looking at her]].
* Toriel in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a old goat lady that takes in the player character to her home and protects them from traps and monsters along the way and is just so damn adorable (you can even hug her!). Don't let her kind demeanor fool you, for she is a very powerful user of fire magic and won't hesitate to kick your behind down the hall if you piss her off.
* Little Nana of ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' who's around twelve, has her hair up in pig-tails and is always followed by her [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi platypus pal Kyu-Kyu]], is fully capable of being a terror on the battlefield with her personal [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATAC]] even when under-leveled.
* ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'': [[AnimeChineseGirl Eileen]] will scratch you to death with her Monkey Kung-Fu skills.
* ''VideoGame/AWitchsTale'' has Liddell and the princesses, who are all adorable and can easily kick butt.
%%* EVERYONE from ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101''.
* Gnomes in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', especially the females. That three foot tall gnome with bright pink buns tanking a massive boss four times her size is adorable.
** Four times? Meet [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=22898 Supremus]], the largest boss currently in the game. A gnome can tank that-- it's about 10 to 15 times the size of a night elf (a rather tall character).
** Female {{Panda|ingToTheAudience}}ren are also super-cute, and exactly as capable of asskicking as any orc or elf.
** Some female Goblin are also pretty cute and since their introduction in ''Cataclysm'', of course badassery is in their traits now.
** If you compare female blood elves with female of other races (except dwarf, gnome, and goblin, of course) who tend to be either AmazonianBeauty or StatuesqueStunner (even female humans have slightly visible muscle), female blood elves are 'cute' in a sense that they have slender and petite body, and that they [[MusclesAreMeaningless lack of visible muscles]], but that doesn't
prevent kidnappings, (attempted) assassinations, professional hacking jobs, robberies, them to be a badass. Most of them fight as [[TheHunter Farstriders]], [[ThePaladin Blood Knights]] (who are even led by a woman), and various other classes.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has Chu-Chu. Adorable? Check? Badass enough to [[spoiler:transform into
a worldwide terrorist plot. Again, make gear-sized pink.... thing...... who fights to]] support the man she loves? Double check.
%%* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'':
%% ** Momo, specially in the second game onwards.
%% ** Junior also counts.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. Man, this is a [[WorldOfBadass World
of it as you will.Badass Adorable]]:
** Keeps the badass adorable tradition going with Riki. One of the battle quotes of this {{Adorkable}} "fur ball" is "Riki can win by himself!". And he's not all talk. Far from it!
%% ** [[TheHero Shulk]]
%% ** [[TheChick Fiora]]
%% ** Melia.



* Most of main party from ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' belongs here (To an extent, even Duster, thanks to the art style). Lucas is a shy and kind young boy, Kumatora is a cute but brash and tomboyish young princess, and Boney is an adorable and devoted dog. They also fight tons of freakish and powerful monsters in their quest to restore peace to the Nowhere Islands.



* Taokaka from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' may not look adorable, and she can be pretty deadly in combat, but just the way she talks and acts in her story mode in a game full of psychos, monsters, and jaded veterans, is just too damn cute.
** And then there's Carl Clover. The CheerfulChild who has the game's only ''[[GameBreaker infinite combo]]''.
** Also, Makoto Nanaya. A squirrel girl ([[IThoughtItMeant No,]] [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl not THAT one]]), with cute ears and a big bushy tail. However, [[spoiler:unless your name is [[MindRape Relius Clover]],]] messing around with her is a bad idea. [[MusclesAreMeaningless She's a small girl who can punch people]] [[BlownAcrossTheRoom and send them flying.]]
%% ** How has Noel Vermillion not been mentioned?
* Felicia from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series, acts more catlike than human and is just too damn cute.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has Chu-Chu. Adorable? Check? Badass enough to [[spoiler:transform into a gear-sized pink.... thing...... who fights to]] support the man she loves? Double check.
%%* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'':
%% ** Momo, specially in the second game onwards.
%% ** Junior also counts.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. Man, this is a [[WorldOfBadass World of Badass Adorable]]:
** Keeps the badass adorable tradition going with Riki. One of the battle quotes of this {{Adorkable}} "fur ball" is "Riki can win by himself!". And he's not all talk. Far from it!
%% ** [[TheHero Shulk]]
%% ** [[TheChick Fiora]]
%% ** Melia.
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet's'' Sackboy. Powers of a god. Time manipulation, matter control, creation and destruction, and immortality (If you're playing the level editor). And as Yahtzee put it, he "looks like the result of a sinister experiment to concentrate cuteness to a weaponized level for use against angry girlfriends".
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'': Never has [[AGodIsYou divinity]] been so... so... fluffy. Unless you're a goblin (or some other disposable monstrosity), you can ignore Amaterasu's '''other''' [[NobleWolf defining characteristic]]. Seriously, she won't even mind if you walk right up to pet her; Kushinada does this ''every'' time she sees Ammy. It helps that [[InvisibleToNormals half the cast thinks she's just an ordinary dog]] [[DudeWheresMyRespect even after she saves them]], calling her Fluffy, Poochie, Fido, Wolfy, Furball, Snowy, Mutt, ''Powderpuff''...
** And if you thought Amaterasu couldn't get any more adorable, the GaidenGame ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' one-ups the original by making the player character (named ''Chibi''terasu) [[http://www.destructoid.com/okamiden-s-little-wolf-puppy-is-the-cutest-thing-ever-147254.phtml a tiny puppy dog instead]]. For an added bonus ([[RidiculouslyCuteCritter if one was necessary]]), he spends most of the game carrying around kids on his back, most of whom are at least ''some'' degree of BadassAdorable in and of themselves. And, like his mother, Chibi [[DudeWheresMyRespect can't catch a break in the name department]], being variously referred to as Mutt, Pooch, [[TotallyRadical Dude]], and Squiddy.
** Made even more adorable in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', in which Ammy is a playable character.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''. Quite a ''lot'' of the Girls of Gensokyo are [[{{Moe}} really, really cute]], and they all either have [[SuperPowerLottery crazy powers]] or plenty of [[BulletHell danmaku]] with which to protect themselves.
** Perhaps the best example here: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Flandre Scarlet]]. A CheerfulChild, who loves her sister so much that she really ''doesn't mind'' having been locked in the basement for the past 495 years. And she canonically has the [[PersonOfMassDestruction power to destroy]] [[InformedAbility absolutely anything]] at all. That's on top of enough firepower to [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength utterly annihilate]] most humans she tries to play with. And you would never know it by [[http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll293/Lyco_7/akibakko-119366801257386.jpg looking at her]].
* The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games:
** Princess Sapphire Rhodonite is a relatively straight example, as most fans find her [[AxCrazy psychotic outbursts]] amidst the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} demeanor make her even ''more'' adorable... in a [[{{Yandere}} deranged and troubling sort of way]].
** Kurtis seems to get this a lot since he reincarnated as a Prinny. Nevermind the fact that he still has the same deep voice and [[{{Badass}} his]] [[HotBlooded character]] is still as it always was.
** Raspberyl, a FunSize [[TokenMiniMoe loli]], number one delinquent, and self-proclaimed badass who shows it with her magical prowess.
** Laharl, the cutest little Overlord ever.
** Desco, a living weapon of mass destruction and {{Moe}} little sister of sorts who aspires to be a FinalBoss someday.
** LoveFreak Flonne. Cutest archangel ever. One of her special attacks involves proclaiming "Love is a miracle!" while beating the crap out of the enemy in a spray of hearts.
** Prinnies are AdorableEvilMinions who can be quite destructive at high levels. [[ActionBomb Or when thrown.]]
%% ** Plenair.
* ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' packs a few, being one of Nippin Ichi's more serious titles. You have Danette, cute, ditzy and slightly amnesiac who tears through enemies with knives and regularily makes remarks about snapping peoples' necks (and actually does so to one of your allies). Trish, a refined merchant's daughter, always positive and cheerful, who leads a mercenary company. And then there are the angels. Cute little baby-like guys... ''armed with guns''.
* Nippon Ichi also brought us Marona, of ''PhantomBrave'' fame: thirteen-year old orphan who just wants to be happy and make friends. Is also a mercenary-for-hire with an army of phantoms, routinely hired to go into some of the most inhospitable places in Ivoire to deal with supernatural threats and attacking armies, managed to slay a legendary monster that the legendary hero Scarlet only succeeded in sealing away, and spearheads the operation to defeat the game's BigBad. (To say nothing of the postgame content.) Thanks to the game mechanics, it's also perfectly permissible to make her a LightningBruiser and have her curb-stomp enemies way above her own level without having to rely on her army.
* Creator/SquareEnix loves this trope. You've got [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Moogles]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Black Mages]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Tarutaru]], and even [[VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime Slimes with battle tanks]]. The [[KillerRabbit Tonberrys]] are adorable, but extremely dangerous if one underestimates them.
** There is a young, lovely, cute, spunky, aloof, innocent, friendly, childish GenkiGirl in almost every ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game: '''Rydia''', '''Krile''', '''Relm''', '''Yuffie''', '''Selphie''', '''Eiko''', '''Rikku''', '''Penelo''', '''Vanille'''. And all of them cover the {{Badass}} part of the trope. They are capable to decimate anything, be it with bombs, BlackMagic, SummonMagic or just oversized weapons that they shouldn't be able to carry.
** Selphie is willing to blow up a whole missile base, and that's just one of her moments. Not to mention she possesses the strongest Limit Break ''in the entire game'', called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The End]], which will ''wish the enemy into the flower fields'' in a one-hit KO. Worst of it all? ''It works on the final boss.''
** One of Vanille's "battle sayings" is "I'm not all flowers and sunshine!" In a sickeningly cute, sweet, sing-song voice. You could hear the jaws hit the floor when it was learned that [[{{Moe}} cute and cheery]] she had a summon that was a ''[[SmallGirlBigGun walking war machine]]''. Not to mention that she's [[spoiler:the harbinger of the apocalypse. {{Badass}} indeed]].
** '''Vivi''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. I mean, come on. The little cutie is the [[TheWoobie freakin' Woobie]], but if he gets angry and/or determined, he will own you.
** Also '''Tifa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Although less adorable than sexy, Tifa is a sweet and wholesome girl ([[{{Stripperific}} although she doesn't dress like one]]) who can dish out one of the biggest damage in the game, [[BarefistedMonk with her bare hands]]!
** Then there's '''Rinoa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', who is cute but also [[spoiler:a Sorceress]], and basically wields a large chakram that is shot from her wrist!
** '''Terra'''! MysteriousWaif of [[HalfHumanHybrid exotic ancestry]]? Check. PersonOfMassDestruction? Check. MamaBear? Oh so very, very check. (There is [[GodModeSue actually more]], but you get the idea). And in case you don't, Dissidia Final Fantasy sets Terra up as the girl who snuggles moogles, then frightens Kefka into shutting up.
*** And Gau. The cute, adorable little feral boy who was RaisedByWolves manages to wear out Sabin, the game's leading badass who can ''suplex a train'', calling it a ''dance''. In battle, Gau is a DiscOneNuke and a Disc Two [[StoneWall Tank]], who is capable of scratching like a cat for massive damage.
** HalfIdenticalTwins '''Palom''' and '''Porom''' are Badass Adorable ''twins''.
** '''Serah''', Lightning's little sister, is the main character of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII-2''. DamselInDistress no more. She possesses fighting skills on par with the party members from the original game now, and she's no less cute from it. Her victory pose is catching EmpathicWeapon and TeamPet Mog and giving him a hug.
** Yuna in Final Fantasy X. Adorable girl, not even at adulthood, ready to sacrifice her life to end the world's suffering, all with a smile.
** Aaaaaaaaaaaaand now we have ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy'', turning the WorldOfBadass seen in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' into a World Of Badass Adorable.
** Sora, Roxas, Ven and Xion from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. Still, the absolute best example is none other than '''Mickey Mouse''', who they managed to turn into freaking ''[[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]]'', of all things.
** His Badass quotient has only increased over the games. In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'', he's a support character that appears to cast spells. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII II]]'', he's playable whenever Sora is defeated, but can't actually finish off bosses (Although his agile combo actually makes him pretty good at wearing them down) . When ''358/2 Days'' made him playable, he was on about the same level as the other playable characters. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance Dream Drop Distance]]'' [[spoiler: he's capable of [[TimeStandsStill pulling a ZA WARUDO]] on every member of the new Organization XIII (including the Big Bads from ''I'' and ''II'') in time. The only person capable of resisting is the incarnation of Xehanort with power over time itself.]] All this from a former steamboat worker.
** Also from ''Dream Drop Distance'', we've got the Dream Eaters, both Spirit and Nightmare. From bouncing blue "[[WesternAnimation/CatDog cat-dogs]]" and purple bats, to electric snails and deers, and undead dinosaurs and [[KillerRabbit wizard rabbits]], they really suit the term "adorable killers".
** Aside from ''Final Fantasy'', ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' gives us Mr. Mew. An adorable little cat plush that could rip your eyes out.
** Max Caulfield and Chloe Price in ''VideoGame/{{Life Is Strange}}''.
*** For Max: She's a CuteClumsyGirl who has the power to [[TimeMaster REWIND TIME]].
*** For Chloe: After her former dad, William, died, she took a rebellious phase and TookALevelInBadass.
** Lara Croft in the ''VideoGame/{{Tomb Raider|2013}}'' game released in 2013. She always been cute but the 2013 game puts emphasis on her youth, innocence, and [[NaiveNewcomer overall inexperience]].
** Leah and Marcy from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.
* The titular Little King in LittleKingsStory. A 3-foot tall child who [[TakeOverTheWorld takes over the world]], frees and marries ''seven'' princesses, and opens up [[SealedBadassInACan sealed cans of Badass]] just to punch them out.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' gives us several examples. There's Latooni, TheWoobie who is also arguably the best pilot in the OriginalGeneration games; Mai Kobayashi, {{Tykebomb}}, one-time end-game boss, and adorable in the extreme; Ibis Douglas, the luckless but tenacious flat chested girl; and even the villain of the second OriginalGeneration game Einst Alfimi, ridiculously {{moe}} and ridiculously broken once you manage to recruit her.
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' Examples:
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' -- Collette Brunel, Presea Combatir, and Genis Sage
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' -- Marta Lualdi
** Also Emil. You just wanna hug him... then [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan smack him in the face and tell him to get a hold of himself]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' -- Surprise, surprise... [[PantheraAwesome Eugene Gallardo]]. Though not in the main game, but is described in ''[[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' as "big, fluffy, cute, huggable" by VideoGame/{{T|alesOfTheAbyss}}ear. Mao could qualify, as well.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' -- Karol Capel and Estelle, who is surprisingly effective at battle given her gentle nature. Patty as well, in the PS3 version.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' -- Sophie. Just see it for yourself if you don't [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0RT_Sg7K2E believe]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJGify05etQ it]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' -- Arche Klaine and Suzu Fujibayashi
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' -- Anise Tatlin
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'' -- Meredy, one of the cutest video game characters ever but also capable of wiping out the enemy with her summons.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' -- Ruca Milda
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' -- Elise Lutus. Quite possibly the most adorable out of all the examples.
* May from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Bridget may also qualify [[WholesomeCrossdresser if you're into that sort of thing]].
* Quite a few characters from ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' can turn out this way.
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Amelia]] can take this to an absurd degree if you make her into a General. Basically, she remains an adorable teenage girl in all of the cutscenes, but on the battlefield she's seven feet tall, covered from head to toe in plate mail, and wields weapons that make Cloud's Buster Sword look like a toothpick. Combine this with positively absurd stat-growth and you have what is basically a walking wall of certain death. An adorable, shy wall of certain death. Ross is a HotBlooded boy who idolizes his RetiredBadass dad but is quite the sweetheart to others, and Ewan is a cheery prankster with a talent for magic. Raise them well and promote the first one into either a [[BoisterousBruiser Berserker or a Warrior]], while making the other [[BlackMagic a Summoner or a Druid]]. The ''three'' trainees absolutely {{Moe}} killing machines - and double if you [[RelationshipValues get any of the boys to A Support level with Amelia.]]
** Also Lilina from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sword Of Seals]]'' and Nino of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]''.
** [[spoiler: Princess]] Julia Bahara from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' is a PrincessClassic with a high amount of {{Moe}} ([[http://i43.tinypic.com/1zwn1qq.jpg See her here.]]), [[TheWoobie who's very shy and somewhat depressed (she's usually depicted as crying. A lot.)]] Mind you, she's a GlassCannon stat wise, and would be that way but usually she's got one of two weapons, one is her trademark "Resire" which makes her practically invincible, the other is a stacked GameBreaker- as she is already, her [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus 20]] Tome, Naga, which, increases her stats by 20 (ignoring the {{Cap}}s, oh and that tome? It fires a Dragon at her hapless foes.
** And there's plenty more in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius canon]]: Queen Elincia, Mia, Mist, Sanaki, Ilyana, Rolf, Marcia, Nephenee, Astrid... Take your pick!
** Most of the female manaketes throughout the series (Tiki, Fa, Myrrh, and Nowi, to be specific) definitely qualify.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes this trope to new levels with [[spoiler:Lucina]]. In the battlefield she's arguably the most badass female character in the entire game, only contested by a female Avatar, and easily enters the Top 5 of the entire series (and that's saying a LOT). But during her support conversations and quite a few cutscences, you just want to hug her dearly just out of sheer cuteness!
** Nowi, a cute sweet Adorable little girl who loves to play whose really a Manatake - [[OlderThanTheyLook a race of beings who are live for centuries]] who turn into giant dragons to toast their enemies.
*** Nah, Cynthia, Noire, both versions of Morgan...Awakening has quite a few characters that qualify for this.
*** Ricken. Just don't call him adorable.
*** Let's not forget the Avatar, whether male or female. In this game you can customize your PlayerCharacter's looks, and one of the three prospect Body Builds you're offered is one of a boy or a girl who seems to be 14 years old ''tops'', and can have his/her hairstyles and expressions also arranged to your whims. This means, you can make your PlayerCharacter the most badass PersonOfMassDestruction... and one who looks like a super adorable kid while laying the smackdown on the enemy.
* You can make one in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' if you're clever enough.
* Gnomes in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', especially the females. That three foot tall gnome with bright pink buns tanking a massive boss four times her size is adorable.
** Four times? Meet [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=22898 Supremus]], the largest boss currently in the game. A gnome can tank that-- it's about 10 to 15 times the size of a night elf (a rather tall character).
** Female {{Panda|ingToTheAudience}}ren are also super-cute, and exactly as capable of asskicking as any orc or elf.
** Some female Goblin are also pretty cute and since their introduction in ''Cataclysm'', of course badassery is in their traits now.
** If you compare female blood elves with female of other races (except dwarf, gnome, and goblin, of course) who tend to be either AmazonianBeauty or StatuesqueStunner (even female humans have slightly visible muscle), female blood elves are 'cute' in a sense that they have slender and petite body, and that they [[MusclesAreMeaningless lack of visible muscles]], but that doesn't prevent them to be a badass. Most of them fight as [[TheHunter Farstriders]], [[ThePaladin Blood Knights]] (who are even led by a woman), and various other classes.
* ''VideoGame/NinjabreadMan'' -- A cute, little cookie that so happens to know self-defense. Too bad the game blows.
* Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. His victory pose is to cutely scratch himself! Ken Amada, as a ten-year-old cute little boy, might also count. The alternative female protagonist of the PSP version definitely does.
* Choko from ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'': at first she's a [[OneManArmy One Lolita Army]], then, she gets an upgrade and becomes a [[PersonOfMassDestruction Waif of Mass Destruction]].
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has Missile, a yappy little Pomeranian who is adorable even by Pomeranian standards. After he dies [[spoiler: for the second time, he gains ghost trick powers. His reach is far longer than Sissel's and he has the ability to swap objects of different sizes, even huge stone statues.]]
** [[spoiler: And in an alternate timeline he waited ''[[TheSlowPath ten years]]'' for the events of that night to play out again, so this time he could convince Sissel to help Lynne.]]
** [[spoiler:Sissel]] is also this, considering he's [[spoiler:actually a little black cat]]. At the end, he's a [[spoiler:little black ''[[CuteKitten kitten]]'']]. Awwww.
* A few characters from ''VideoGame/CaveStory''. King is a Mimiga (a rabbit-man) who takes out [[RecurringBoss Balrog]] with a single swordstroke. Then there's Quote and Curly who... well, just look at [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cavestory-storminghell.gif this in-game art]], depicting them in the act of [[BrutalBonusLevel storming]] [[PlanetHeck Hell]].
* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' has Cocona Bartel in the second game. She's about ten years old or so, four-foot-nothing, wears her long hair in pigtails with two absurdly large hair ornaments, and is the main character's adopted little sister. She is a very cheery girl who is always willing to help her big brother and often pouts in the cutest way whenever he's late. Turns out that she accompanies her "big brother" on his knight missions, and fights by taking her hair ornaments off and using them as a sort of transforming baton weapon. Despite her size, she keeps up with the adult frontline fighters, including her older brother. And the kicker? She is a Reyvateil, a species that is usually kept in the back lines far away from the physical fighting. Also thanks to her BFS in her LimitBreak.
* The campers of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are all pre-teen psychics in-training. Most notable is Raz, who not only learns several potent psychic techniques but is also a skilled acrobat due to his life as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Gypsy]] CircusBrat.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** In [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]], [[HotScientist Liara]] and [[WrenchWench Tali]]. Liara is a socially awkward archaeologist that has never been in a relationship before, and can scatter enemy troopers like papers in a hurricane and crush tanks like tin cans. Tali is NaiveNewcomer that, similarly to Liara, has never been in a relationship, but can shut down your shields, make your weapons explode, and poison your nervous system with a few taps on her omni-tool.
*** Note that, [[CerebusSyndrome with the serious turn towards the dark]] that happens in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the "adorable" factor for these two gets reduced. In the two years between the games, [[spoiler:Shepard's death, Cerberus' attack on the Migrant Fleet, Liara's newfound obsession with the Shadow Broker]], and the Collector attacks, the galaxy has become a ''much'' rougher place, particularly for these two. Tali becomes adorable (and {{Adorkable}}) again in her romance, as does Liara if you have ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' added. By the time ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' rolls around, though, Liara and Tali are just as hard and [[WarIsHell weary]] as every other character.
** [[spoiler:Legion]], among other badass [[ColdSniper desig]][[FriendlySniper nations]], also qualifies as Badass {{Adorkable}}.
** The ''Retaliation'' DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' allows you to play as a volus in multiplayer.
* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''. A cute little fuzzy alien with big round eyes, an incredibly expressive face, and enough weaponry to take down a dozen intergalactic armies..... literally, and his cute little robot friend, a secret agent who can grow into a Godzilla sized living weapon and control time. Saving all of time and space while looking incredibly cute.
* As stated, a good number of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and even their trainers.
** All "cute legendaries" (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, Victini) qualify. Notably Jirachi has a [[FacelessEye creepy eye]], Celebi can TimeTravel, and Shaymin transforms into a more badass form.
** The protagonists and their rivals are almost always this, except for a few side game ones who are older.
** Dragonite. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qe9O90cD80 It flies and shoots hyper beams!]]
** [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Iris]] is one. Drayden's assistant in ''Black'', Gym Leader in ''White'' and [[TookALevelInBadass Champion]] in [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 the sequels]]. She also pretends to do a roar at the beginning of battle... and then she sends out a Hydreigon.
** Ukulele Pichu from ''Guardian Signs''. Unlike all other Pokémon, it will still do the assist even if it's hit by BeamSpam/whatever-attack of Pokémon engineered to be the most powerful one (Mewtwo) [[spoiler:'''or even the god ITSELF (Arceus)''']].
** Sylveon of Gen VI immediately gained this reputation once people learned of its type and what it's capable of doing. That badass Garchomp you're holding? Sylveon will eat it and ask for seconds.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', any baby Pokémon you catch in the wild (Azurill, Budew, Riolu, etc.) will always have 3 maxed out [=IVs=].[[note]]Individual Values; basically genes that determine how high a Pokemon's stats can be trained.[[/note]]
** Goodra, a adorable slime dragon who is very friendly, loves giving it's trainers hugs, can take special attacks like a tank and hits like one as well.
** Pikachu, in ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament''. The way he crosses his arms and scowls, it looks like it's trying to imitate [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi Mishima]], and looks all the cuter for it. The similarities to one of ''Tekken'''s poster boys doesn't end there, though: it can also use a handful of Mishima-style Karate techniques. While Pikachu in the main series was generally of this trope, this one takes that UpToEleven.
*** Similarly, Pikachu Libre, a second, female, Pikachu who happens to be wearing a masked wrestler outfit and using bonecrushing throws, while still being an adorable Pikachu. Her trainer will even call her "adorably tough!"
** Azumarill. It looks like an adorable cross between [[KillerRabbit a rabbit]] and a beach ball. It's typing, movepool, and abilities makes it one of the game's [[LethalJokeCharacter most effective dragon slayers]].
** CuteMonsterGirl Lopunny joins the ranks thanks to her new Mega Evolution. Gains lots of speed, attack, and the [[BareFistedMonk Fighting]] Type.
** Arcanine. Aww, it's a big fluffy dog, and its pre-evolved Growlithe form is a little fluffy puppy. It just so happens that Arcanine is a big fluffy dog that's 6' tall, 350 pounds, and breathes fire. [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m43a9bhqgL1qczibyo1_500.gif Anyone that tries to harm its trainer wil be sent into orbit]].
* VideoGame/{{Opoona}}, Copoona, and Poleena all look like Playskool figurines. All of them fight the forces that corrupt half an entire planet.
** This is pretty much their [[PlanetOfHats species hat]] in fact, to the point that their planet's constitution reads more like a warrior code.
%% * Princess, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/MagicalPopN''.
%% * Prince Cornelius and Mercedes from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere''.
%% * And Momohime in the SpiritualSuccessor MuramasaTheDemonBlade.
* Leanne from ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate'', even in-Universe. Several [=NPCs=] ''gush'' about how adorable she is, and as for being a badass... well, she can gun down a tank or two.
* Villainous example: [[spoiler:Dark Emperor Griffon]] from ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' is [[spoiler:a child-sized [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic bunny rabbit]] from the Moon with adorable eyes and ears and who only got into this mess [[StartOfDarkness because he loved flowers so much]].]] He is also able to kick your ass 10 times over even ''without'' the power of the [[MacGuffin Atlamillia]].
** The heroes of the game, Max and Monica. Max is a cheerful young inventor who can make almost anything and his inventions never fail. He's also capable of piloting a Ridepod (robot) that can be armed with weapons ranging from [[PowerFist iron fists]] to [[MoreDakka machine guns]] and [[MacrossMissileMassacre portable missile platforms]]. Monica is a pink-haired MagicKnight from the future who's not only capable of holding her own in a fight, she's also a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething princess leading a resistance movement against the forces of Griffon]].
%% * Patapon and Zigoton warriors in ''VideoGame/{{Patapon}}''. Music enhances that.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'''s resident {{Moe}}-fanbait is Sanada Yukimura -- [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed]], [[SkilledButNaive naive]], [[UndyingLoyalty intensely loyal]], [[{{keigo}} incredibly polite]]...and [[ChasteHero completely oblivious to all things sexual]]. He's also the most stupidly HotBlooded ScreamingWarrior in the series and looks like a fluffy puppy.
* Rebecca Chambers, from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series. Originally just a pixie-esque medic, we later learn that she fought her way through a night of Lovecraftian horrors before Chris Redfield ever saw his first zombie. Also, in her cameo in the "Mercenaries Reunion" mode in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5,'' she sets people on fire.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}:''
** Asuka Kazama. An adorable teen girl who loves solving problems by fighting
** On that same note, Ling Xiaoyu, who even looks more stereotypically cute.
** Alisa Bosconovitch is not just an adorable and kind teen girl, but also a RobotGirl loaded with different weapons and bells and whistles.
* Dog from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. While outwardly he's a BigFriendlyDog the size of a small pony, he's actually a Mabari; a special breed of War-dogs created by Tevinter Magisters to be as intelligent as a human. Contingents of Mabari have traditionally served as elite units in the Ferelden army and used for breaking enemy formations and taking down ''Knights''. While travelling with the Warden, Dog will jump headfirst into the fray and tear his enemies to pieces, before coming back covered in blood, wagging his tail and waiting to be scratched behind the ears by his Master. Sten considers him a [[WorthyOpponent true warrior]], Oghren is convinced he's trying to [[SitcomArchNemesis steal his pants]] and Morrigan complains that he keeps leaving dead rabbits in her pack, because he thinks she [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking needs to]] [[ForgetsToEat eat more]].
** And of course, [[{{Expy}} his counterpart]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Hawke's companions will occasionally come to their home simply to visit the Dog, Varric plays regular games of cards with him and Aveline even asks to borrow him to help train the Kirkwall City Guard, so they can learn how people in Ferelden [[BringMyBrownPants don't soil themselves]] when they see a massive Mabari charging at them.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' there is also Merrill. She's a thin, naive, innocent, sweet-natured, easily distracted, practicing blood mage and Demon Summoner who becomes a MotorMouth when nervous. She also has only offensive magic and vicious combat buffs, not even the slightest healing spell, and fearsome drive to revive the glory of Arlathan for which she is willing to sacrifice her life. Absolutely ''{{Adorkable}}'' and she can a-splode you from half a mile away with her mind.
* The Pet Dragon from ''VideoGame/KingsBounty: Armored Princess''. Basically, a winged technicolored [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]], who likes to play with a little snail and dance around his pot tree ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSBQReA4tn0 check him out]]). Oh, look, he's summoning fountains of lava to engulf the enemies in searing agony, conjures lightning balls and finishes the surviviors off with a somersault kick. Awww!
* VideoGame/EccoTheDolphin, of course, being both a [[CaptainObvious dolphin]] and the protagonist of a brutally difficult action/adventure game series, would obviously qualify as this, but it tends towards FridgeBrilliance when you consider that the label BadassAdorable arguably applies to real-life dolphins as well.
* Sunny from ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Solid 4]]''. Seven years old, cute as a button, and able to take down an AI that has effectively taken over the world.
** Otacon, too, for that matter. Combine his male-{{Meganekko}}-osity, shyness, niceness, and nerdiness with his genius hacker-dom, the fact that he's the creator of freakin' Metal Gear Rex, and his HeroicSacrifice tendencies, and you get one true BadassAdorable.
* Dr. Fetus from ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]''. He may be pretty ugly and be disgusting in some ways, like when you really acknowledge that he's a fetus, but that little fetus body is just adorable!
** Really, almost the entire cast qualifies. Yes, even [[BadassInDistress Bandage Girl.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' games adore this trope, and usually at least one playable member is a young, adorable teenager with SquishyWizard and/or GlassCannon tendencies at the ''least''.
** Sveta in ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' is a champion of this trope, a ridiculously {{Moe}} [[MemeticMutation kitty-dog]]... deer... [[PettingZooPeople furry person]], who is the series' first warrior-type [[BlowYouAway Wind]] [[ShockAndAwe Adept]] and the series' first true ActionGirl (most have been [[BlackMagicianGirl primarily casters]]). And this is before you [[AwesomeButImpractical sack all her Djinn]] to [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent turn her into a giant anthropomorphic wolf]] who backhands bosses across the room.
** And let's not forget that thirty years before being a snarky pirate in Dark Dawn, Eoleo was a [[{{Adorkable}} dorky toddler]] with BlindingBangs who could wrap his [[NeverMessWithGranny great-grandma]] [[CutenessProximity around his little finger]] and ''[[GooGooGodlike blew up Alhafra's prison with his mind]]'' to rescue his daddy. D'awwwwww!
* Little Nana of ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' who's around twelve, has her hair up in pig-tails and is always followed by her [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi platypus pal Kyu-Kyu]], is fully capable of being a terror on the battlefield with her personal [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATAC]] even when under-leveled.
* ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'', anybody? He's an adorable cat-like creature with big long ears. He could also throw you across the screen.
* T3-M4 from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and its sequel. Particularly [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] in the sequel, where at one point he casually shuts down [[AxCrazy HK-47]] when he starts getting too snoopy.
** Not to mention single-handedly demolishing ''three'' HK-50 droids at once on Nar Shaddaa. In one-on-one combat.
** T3's SpiritualSuccessor in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', T7-01, definitely counts. A cute little astromech droid [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld who hasn't had a memory wipe for at least two centuries]], considers himself the true hero of the story (partially justifiable, considering that [[BeenThereShapedHistory he had front row seats to the start of the last war]]) and is the first astromech droid who had his language translated - and he is speaking in equations! That is the first companion character a Jedi Knight gets. [[BewareTheNiceOnes He is a tank]].
** Jedi Consulars get Nadia Grell for a Padawan. The SpoiledSweet daughter of a Senator (and only known Force Sensitive member of her species) who looks like a strong breeze could whisk her away, utterly {{Adorkable}}...and things ''explode'' when she gets too excited because she has the strongest raw talent in Force telekenesis the Order's seen in a generation.
** On the Imperial side of ''The Old Republic'' we have the Bounty Hunter's first companion [[HitmanWithAHeart Mako]]. Despite working in a distinctly amoral career she constantly supports light-sided actions and takes the time to comfort a woman terrified out of her mind after you two just shot your way into the building. As for the badass side of the equation, we'll let the girl speak for herself:
--> "I'm not just the pretty sidekick, buster!"
** Hunters also get Blizz. He's a Jawa, ya know those cute robed little guys with glowy yellow eyes? He's small, even by their standards. Calls you "Boss." As excitable and cheery as a sugar-high squirrel. Somehow manages to carry a ''[[MoreDakka rocket-launcher]]'' under his cloak. Mechanically, he's ''a [[PintSizedPowerhouse tank]].''
** Also on the Imperial side we have Ashara, the Sith Inquisitor's melee DPS. She's calm, quiet, contemplative, gets rather nervous when the possibility of a relationship is approached, and will murder you with [[DualWielding two lightsabers]] if she feels it's necessary.
** Treek, a companion you get via Microtransactions is an Ewok who is geared as a tank/healer hybrid and is a pretty vicious little ankle-biter despite the fact that she's about two-feet tall.
* Veronica from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. She's a sarcastic StraightGay Brotherhood Scribe, with a compulsion against showing her hair. She's also [[MegatonPunch very good with a Power Fist]]. Being voiced by FeliciaDay might also have something to do with this.
** Also, ED-E the SuperPrototype Eyebot, a floating little robot that plays a catchy little tune when flying into combat armed with a laser and a perk that practically gives you max Perception.
* Dewy from ''DewysAdventure''.
* VideoGame/{{LEGO Adaptation Game}}s are known to do this: first we have ''LEGO Star Wars'', that allows the player to re-live ''all'' the series' [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Awesome Moments]] while playing as LEGO minifigures. Then came ''LEGO Batman'', that is just this side of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' in terms of sheer badassness. And now we got ''LEGO Harry Potter'' and ''LEGO Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''... you name it, really.
* ''Every'' single playable character of the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' games can be considered as one.
* Milly from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos Origins''. She's the sheltered daughter of an Alfard nobleman, and she has ''butterfly wings''. She also dual-wields clubs and can kick you across the room.
** Sagi probably counts as well.
** Mizuti in the original game initially seems more weird and quirky than adorable [[spoiler: until you see her face underneath the mask.]]
* Kooh from ''VideoGame/{{Pangya}}''. The 11 year old TokenMiniMoe is also a pirate captain who hauls around a cannon and rides a giant bomb.
* [[AdorableEvilMinions Turrets]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' games. They will shoot the crap out of anything they target, but the things they say are incredibly adorable.
* From ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'':
** The twins, March and Salsa. A pair of a adorable 8-year-old girls, one sweet and polite, the other something of a hothead. They wield twin chakrams, have access to powerful moves, and... are those ''sharp teeth'' and miniature ''skulls'' on those necklaces? On the other hand, their headgear is reminiscent of bunnies.
** Beat, an 8-year-old boy who is sort of like a younger brother to Allegretto. He wields a repeating rifle with precision.
** Polka, a sweet young teen with [[IllGirl an unspecified illness]]. Her [[ParasolOfPain parasol is a powerful weapon]], and she has some good magic in her arsenal.
* If you are going to call Mazzy, the halfling pseudo-paladin from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'' this, you're well advised to do it somewhere where she can't hear you.
-->'''Mazzy:''' ''I won't seem so cute when I break your legs!''
* One of the default animals in ''VideoGame/TokyoJungle'' is a feral Pomeranian dog... who is still able to bring down gazelles with a well-timed Clean Kill.
* Practically any character (even ''yours'') in ''VideoGame/HappyWars''.
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', there is a spell to summon a wild animal to help you in combat. The animals get progressively stronger depending on how good your character is with magick. They go from wolves to cougars, to tigers, to gorillas and finally, strongest of them all, ... a fluffy white bunny rabbit. Yes, the Vorpal Bunny is a level 40 creature with extremely high strength, maxed out melee and dodge skills and Master level proficiency in both.
* Being a fighting game with a variety of characters, the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' is bound to have some adorable folks kicking ass. Although the biggest one is probably Pyrrha Alexandra, who is able to [[spoiler: wield [[EvilWeapon SoulEdge]] without losing her soul to it.]]
* A number of champions from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' are members of the local "adorable midget" race, the yordles, like Poppy the Iron Ambassador and Veigar the Tiny Master of Evil.
** And Fizz. He's the cutest sea critter in the league that strongly resembles to [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]]. But then... [[ThreateningShark "SHARK!!"]]
** Nami is a benevolent mermaid who's super cute and a FriendToAllLivingThings ... with the ability to trap you inside a bubble and send a gigantic tidal wave crashing down on you.
* Toro Inoue, Creator/SonyComputerEntertainment's Japanese {{Mascot}} of sorts, because anyone that can take on [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi Mishima]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken twice]] (while still being cute) [[VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale should count]].
* ''VirtuaFighter'': [[AnimeChineseGirl Eileen]] will scratch you to death with her Monkey Kung-Fu skills.
* The ProfessorLayton series gives us Emmy Altava, a young woman who was the Professor's first assistant. She's sweet, she [[TheSnarkKnight likes her zingers]], she's a [[SupremeChef good cook]], and, when push comes to shove, she's a [[ActionGirl hyper competent]] [[KickChick fighter.]]
* Several fighters from the ''{{Tekken}}'' series, including (but not limited to) Ling Xiaoyu (all-around friendly GenkiGirl who one day dreams of building an amusement park), [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Panda]] (pet/bodyguard of Xiaoyu), Lili de Rochefort (SpoiledSweet with love for street fighting) and Alisa Bosconovitch (cute, rose-haired girl who is actually a robot with [[ChainsawGood chainsaws built into her arms]]).
* Juliet Starling from ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw''. A cute blonde cheerleader who kills zombies with a pink chainsaw. Enough said.
* EVERYONE from ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101''.
* Violet from ''VideoGame/CelDamage'' is a cute demon girl who is one of the most aggressive characters in the game. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytwV531BwHs Her intro alone should tell you everything you need to know about her.]]
* Being a {{Doujinshi}} FightingGame that {{cross|over}}es five different CuteWitch animes (those being ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'', ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagohime'', ''Anime/PrincessComet'', ''Fan Fan Pharmacy'', and ''Kasumin''), ''VideoGame/MagicalChaserStardustOfDreams'' has these ''for every playable character''. Yes, even [[DarkMagicalGirl Meteo and Bibin]].
* Aurora from ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' is an adorable child princess who gets sent to a MagicalLand overrun by monsters. She uses a [[{{BFS}} sword that's almost as big as her]] and [[LightEmUp light magic]] to destroy said monsters.
* Tiny Kong of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' fame is a cute little monkey girl whose main ability is getting even littler. Yet she's willing, even ''eager'' to "kick some reptile butt", and is perfectly capable of doing so while shrunk. And in the minigame "Krazy Kong Klamour", while the boys are all cowering at the prospect of being shot with a watermelon, she's taking up a ''fighting stance''.
* The heroes from ''VideoGame/DeBlob''.
* ''Franchise/{{Rayman}}'' and all his friends. His [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many, many friends]] (even if most of them are just glorified {{Palette Swap}}s).
* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has the three main playable characters ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent Lilac]], {{C|uteKitten}}arol and [[PreciousPuppy Milla]]) as this.
* ''VideoGame/AWitchsTale'' has Liddell and the princesses, who are all adorable and can easily kick butt.
* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' features a couple:
** Taupy is basically a living teddy bear, but he has a ridiculously powerful flurry attack combo that makes him a LightningBruiser. He has a [[LarynxDissonance deep voice]] and tough guy demeanor, but that doesn't stop Kyrie from calling him a stuffed animal (not that Taupy likes it).
** Rhi'a is a CuteMonsterGirl dragonkin. Aside from Taupy, she's the smallest to join your team, an ElegantGothicLolita, and she enjoys being a bit of a playful {{troll}} at times (particularly to [[ButtMonkey Agan]]). She's also a crack shot with a pair of revolvers and can transform into a more draconic version of herself to deal damage with her claws.
** TheHero Kyrie is a young {{Bishonen}} who's lead a very sheltered life thus far and knows little about the world outside Barni Village; his naivete, {{nice|Guy}}ness, and [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed idealism]] can evoke protective instincts. In addition to {{squee}}ing about Taupy being small and cute, his infatuation with Morte is so obvious it's comical and even endearing. While he's not incompetent at the start of the game, he later [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level]] and becomes able to wipe the floor with just about any opponent.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' you travel a many Earth-sized world on your own (or with a small handful of friends), hunting and gathering to keep yourself fed enough to stay alive, building your own homes and even ''cities'' from scratch out of wild and underground raw materials, slaying hundreds upon hundreds of undead and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, smelting metals into your own TwentyFourHourArmor, mastering arcane magic and navigating the [[DeathWorld netherworld]]. All while being a cartoonish toylike being BuiltWithLEGO.
* Toriel in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a old goat lady that takes in the player character to her home and protects them from traps and monsters along the way and is just so damn adorable (you can even hug her!). Don't let her kind demeanor fool you, for she is a very powerful user of fire magic and won't hesitate to kick your behind down the hall if you piss her off.
* Ness from ''VideoGame/Earthbound''. A lovable twelve year old boy who likes baseball. Who can also make things explode with his mind.

to:

* Taokaka from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' may not look adorable, and she can be pretty deadly in combat, but just the way she talks and acts in her story mode in a game full of psychos, monsters, and jaded veterans, is just too damn cute.
** And then there's Carl Clover. The CheerfulChild who has the game's only ''[[GameBreaker infinite combo]]''.
** Also, Makoto Nanaya. A squirrel girl ([[IThoughtItMeant No,]] [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl not THAT one]]), with cute ears and a big bushy tail. However, [[spoiler:unless your name is [[MindRape Relius Clover]],]] messing around with her is a bad idea. [[MusclesAreMeaningless She's a small girl who can punch people]] [[BlownAcrossTheRoom and send them flying.]]
%% ** How has Noel Vermillion not been mentioned?
* Felicia from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' series, acts more catlike than human and is just too damn cute.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has Chu-Chu. Adorable? Check? Badass enough to [[spoiler:transform into a gear-sized pink.... thing...... who fights to]] support the man she loves? Double check.
%%* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'':
%% ** Momo, specially in the second game onwards.
%% ** Junior also counts.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}''. Man, this is a [[WorldOfBadass World of Badass Adorable]]:
** Keeps the badass adorable tradition going with Riki. One of the battle quotes of this {{Adorkable}} "fur ball" is "Riki can win by himself!". And he's not all talk. Far from it!
%% ** [[TheHero Shulk]]
%% ** [[TheChick Fiora]]
%% ** Melia.
* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet's'' Sackboy. Powers of a god. Time manipulation, matter control, creation and destruction, and immortality (If you're playing the level editor). And as Yahtzee put it, he "looks like the result of a sinister experiment to concentrate cuteness to a weaponized level for use against angry girlfriends".
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'': Never has [[AGodIsYou divinity]] been so... so... fluffy. Unless you're a goblin (or some other disposable monstrosity), you can ignore Amaterasu's '''other''' [[NobleWolf defining characteristic]]. Seriously, she won't even mind if you walk right up to pet her; Kushinada does this ''every'' time she sees Ammy. It helps that [[InvisibleToNormals half the cast thinks she's just an ordinary dog]] [[DudeWheresMyRespect even after she saves them]], calling her Fluffy, Poochie, Fido, Wolfy, Furball, Snowy, Mutt, ''Powderpuff''...
** And if you thought Amaterasu couldn't get any more adorable, the GaidenGame ''VideoGame/{{Okamiden}}'' one-ups the original by making the player character (named ''Chibi''terasu) [[http://www.destructoid.com/okamiden-s-little-wolf-puppy-is-the-cutest-thing-ever-147254.phtml a tiny puppy dog instead]]. For an added bonus ([[RidiculouslyCuteCritter if one was necessary]]), he spends most of the game carrying around kids on his back, most of whom are at least ''some'' degree of BadassAdorable in and of themselves. And, like his mother, Chibi [[DudeWheresMyRespect can't catch a break in the name department]], being variously referred to as Mutt, Pooch, [[TotallyRadical Dude]], and Squiddy.
** Made even more adorable in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', in which Ammy is a playable character.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''. Quite a ''lot'' of the Girls of Gensokyo are [[{{Moe}} really, really cute]], and they all either have [[SuperPowerLottery crazy powers]] or plenty of [[BulletHell danmaku]] with which to protect themselves.
** Perhaps the best example here: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Flandre Scarlet]]. A CheerfulChild, who loves her sister so much that she really ''doesn't mind'' having been locked in the basement for the past 495 years. And she canonically has the [[PersonOfMassDestruction power to destroy]] [[InformedAbility absolutely anything]] at all. That's on top of enough firepower to [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength utterly annihilate]] most humans she tries to play with. And you would never know it by [[http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll293/Lyco_7/akibakko-119366801257386.jpg looking at her]].
* The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games:
** Princess Sapphire Rhodonite is a relatively straight example, as most fans find her [[AxCrazy psychotic outbursts]] amidst the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} demeanor make her even ''more'' adorable... in a [[{{Yandere}} deranged and troubling sort of way]].
** Kurtis seems to get this a lot since he reincarnated as a Prinny. Nevermind the fact that he still has the same deep voice and [[{{Badass}} his]] [[HotBlooded character]] is still as it always was.
** Raspberyl, a FunSize [[TokenMiniMoe loli]], number one delinquent, and self-proclaimed badass who shows it with her magical prowess.
** Laharl, the cutest little Overlord ever.
** Desco, a living weapon of mass destruction and {{Moe}} little sister of sorts who aspires to be a FinalBoss someday.
** LoveFreak Flonne. Cutest archangel ever. One of her special attacks involves proclaiming "Love is a miracle!" while beating the crap out of the enemy in a spray of hearts.
** Prinnies are AdorableEvilMinions who can be quite destructive at high levels. [[ActionBomb Or when thrown.]]
%% ** Plenair.
* ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' packs a few, being one of Nippin Ichi's more serious titles. You have Danette, cute, ditzy and slightly amnesiac who tears through enemies with knives and regularily makes remarks about snapping peoples' necks (and actually does so to one of your allies). Trish, a refined merchant's daughter, always positive and cheerful, who leads a mercenary company. And then there are the angels. Cute little baby-like guys... ''armed with guns''.
* Nippon Ichi also brought us Marona, of ''PhantomBrave'' fame: thirteen-year old orphan who just wants to be happy and make friends. Is also a mercenary-for-hire with an army of phantoms, routinely hired to go into some of the most inhospitable places in Ivoire to deal with supernatural threats and attacking armies, managed to slay a legendary monster that the legendary hero Scarlet only succeeded in sealing away, and spearheads the operation to defeat the game's BigBad. (To say nothing of the postgame content.) Thanks to the game mechanics, it's also perfectly permissible to make her a LightningBruiser and have her curb-stomp enemies way above her own level without having to rely on her army.
* Creator/SquareEnix loves this trope. You've got [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Moogles]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Black Mages]], [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Tarutaru]], and even [[VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime Slimes with battle tanks]]. The [[KillerRabbit Tonberrys]] are adorable, but extremely dangerous if one underestimates them.
** There is a young, lovely, cute, spunky, aloof, innocent, friendly, childish GenkiGirl in almost every ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game: '''Rydia''', '''Krile''', '''Relm''', '''Yuffie''', '''Selphie''', '''Eiko''', '''Rikku''', '''Penelo''', '''Vanille'''. And all of them cover the {{Badass}} part of the trope. They are capable to decimate anything, be it with bombs, BlackMagic, SummonMagic or just oversized weapons that they shouldn't be able to carry.
** Selphie is willing to blow up a whole missile base, and that's just one of her moments. Not to mention she possesses the strongest Limit Break ''in the entire game'', called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The End]], which will ''wish the enemy into the flower fields'' in a one-hit KO. Worst of it all? ''It works on the final boss.''
** One of Vanille's "battle sayings" is "I'm not all flowers and sunshine!" In a sickeningly cute, sweet, sing-song voice. You could hear the jaws hit the floor when it was learned that [[{{Moe}} cute and cheery]] she had a summon that was a ''[[SmallGirlBigGun walking war machine]]''. Not to mention that she's [[spoiler:the harbinger of the apocalypse. {{Badass}} indeed]].
** '''Vivi''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. I mean, come on. The little cutie is the [[TheWoobie freakin' Woobie]], but if he gets angry and/or determined, he will own you.
** Also '''Tifa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. Although less adorable than sexy, Tifa is a sweet and wholesome girl ([[{{Stripperific}} although she doesn't dress like one]]) who can dish out one of the biggest damage in the game, [[BarefistedMonk with her bare hands]]!
** Then there's '''Rinoa''' from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', who is cute but also [[spoiler:a Sorceress]], and basically wields a large chakram that is shot from her wrist!
** '''Terra'''! MysteriousWaif of [[HalfHumanHybrid exotic ancestry]]? Check. PersonOfMassDestruction? Check. MamaBear? Oh so very, very check. (There is [[GodModeSue actually more]], but you get the idea). And in case you don't, Dissidia Final Fantasy sets Terra up as the girl who snuggles moogles, then frightens Kefka into shutting up.
*** And Gau. The cute, adorable little feral boy who was RaisedByWolves manages to wear out Sabin, the game's leading badass who can ''suplex a train'', calling it a ''dance''. In battle, Gau is a DiscOneNuke and a Disc Two [[StoneWall Tank]], who is capable of scratching like a cat for massive damage.
** HalfIdenticalTwins '''Palom''' and '''Porom''' are Badass Adorable ''twins''.
** '''Serah''', Lightning's little sister, is the main character of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII-2''. DamselInDistress no more. She possesses fighting skills on par with the party members from the original game now, and she's no less cute from it. Her victory pose is catching EmpathicWeapon and TeamPet Mog and giving him a hug.
** Yuna in Final Fantasy X. Adorable girl, not even at adulthood, ready to sacrifice her life to end the world's suffering, all with a smile.
** Aaaaaaaaaaaaand now we have ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy'', turning the WorldOfBadass seen in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' into a World Of Badass Adorable.
** Sora, Roxas, Ven and Xion from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. Still, the absolute best example is none other than '''Mickey Mouse''', who they managed to turn into freaking ''[[Franchise/StarWars Yoda]]'', of all things.
** His Badass quotient has only increased over the games. In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'', he's a support character that appears to cast spells. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII II]]'', he's playable whenever Sora is defeated, but can't actually finish off bosses (Although his agile combo actually makes him pretty good at wearing them down) . When ''358/2 Days'' made him playable, he was on about the same level as the other playable characters. By ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance Dream Drop Distance]]'' [[spoiler: he's capable of [[TimeStandsStill pulling a ZA WARUDO]] on every member of the new Organization XIII (including the Big Bads from ''I'' and ''II'') in time. The only person capable of resisting is the incarnation of Xehanort with power over time itself.]] All this from a former steamboat worker.
** Also from ''Dream Drop Distance'', we've got the Dream Eaters, both Spirit and Nightmare. From bouncing blue "[[WesternAnimation/CatDog cat-dogs]]" and purple bats, to electric snails and deers, and undead dinosaurs and [[KillerRabbit wizard rabbits]], they really suit the term "adorable killers".
** Aside from ''Final Fantasy'', ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' gives us Mr. Mew. An adorable little cat plush that could rip your eyes out.
** Max Caulfield and Chloe Price in ''VideoGame/{{Life Is Strange}}''.
*** For Max: She's a CuteClumsyGirl who has the power to [[TimeMaster REWIND TIME]].
*** For Chloe: After her former dad, William, died, she took a rebellious phase and TookALevelInBadass.
** Lara Croft in the ''VideoGame/{{Tomb Raider|2013}}'' game released in 2013. She always been cute but the 2013 game puts emphasis on her youth, innocence, and [[NaiveNewcomer overall inexperience]].
** Leah and Marcy from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.
* The titular Little King in LittleKingsStory. A 3-foot tall child who [[TakeOverTheWorld takes over the world]], frees and marries ''seven'' princesses, and opens up [[SealedBadassInACan sealed cans of Badass]] just to punch them out.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' gives us several examples. There's Latooni, TheWoobie who is also arguably the best pilot in the OriginalGeneration games; Mai Kobayashi, {{Tykebomb}}, one-time end-game boss, and adorable in the extreme; Ibis Douglas, the luckless but tenacious flat chested girl; and even the villain of the second OriginalGeneration game Einst Alfimi, ridiculously {{moe}} and ridiculously broken once you manage to recruit her.
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' Examples:
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' -- Collette Brunel, Presea Combatir, and Genis Sage
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld'' -- Marta Lualdi
** Also Emil. You just wanna hug him... then [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan smack him in the face and tell him to get a hold of himself]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' -- Surprise, surprise... [[PantheraAwesome Eugene Gallardo]]. Though not in the main game, but is described in ''[[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]]'' as "big, fluffy, cute, huggable" by VideoGame/{{T|alesOfTheAbyss}}ear. Mao could qualify, as well.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' -- Karol Capel and Estelle, who is surprisingly effective at battle given her gentle nature. Patty as well, in the PS3 version.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' -- Sophie. Just see it for yourself if you don't [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0RT_Sg7K2E believe]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJGify05etQ it]].
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' -- Arche Klaine and Suzu Fujibayashi
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' -- Anise Tatlin
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'' -- Meredy, one of the cutest video game characters ever but also capable of wiping out the enemy with her summons.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' -- Ruca Milda
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' -- Elise Lutus. Quite possibly the most adorable out of all the examples.
* May from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Bridget may also qualify [[WholesomeCrossdresser if you're into that sort of thing]].
* Quite a few characters from ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' can turn out this way.
** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Amelia]] can take this to an absurd degree if you make her into a General. Basically, she remains an adorable teenage girl in all of the cutscenes, but on the battlefield she's seven feet tall, covered from head to toe in plate mail, and wields weapons that make Cloud's Buster Sword look like a toothpick. Combine this with positively absurd stat-growth and you have what is basically a walking wall of certain death. An adorable, shy wall of certain death. Ross is a HotBlooded boy who idolizes his RetiredBadass dad but is quite the sweetheart to others, and Ewan is a cheery prankster with a talent for magic. Raise them well and promote the first one into either a [[BoisterousBruiser Berserker or a Warrior]], while making the other [[BlackMagic a Summoner or a Druid]]. The ''three'' trainees absolutely {{Moe}} killing machines - and double if you [[RelationshipValues get any of the boys to A Support level with Amelia.]]
** Also Lilina from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sword Of Seals]]'' and Nino of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]''.
** [[spoiler: Princess]] Julia Bahara from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' is a PrincessClassic with a high amount of {{Moe}} ([[http://i43.tinypic.com/1zwn1qq.jpg See her here.]]), [[TheWoobie who's very shy and somewhat depressed (she's usually depicted as crying. A lot.)]] Mind you, she's a GlassCannon stat wise, and would be that way but usually she's got one of two weapons, one is her trademark "Resire" which makes her practically invincible, the other is a stacked GameBreaker- as she is already, her [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus 20]] Tome, Naga, which, increases her stats by 20 (ignoring the {{Cap}}s, oh and that tome? It fires a Dragon at her hapless foes.
** And there's plenty more in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius canon]]: Queen Elincia, Mia, Mist, Sanaki, Ilyana, Rolf, Marcia, Nephenee, Astrid... Take your pick!
** Most of the female manaketes throughout the series (Tiki, Fa, Myrrh, and Nowi, to be specific) definitely qualify.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes this trope to new levels with [[spoiler:Lucina]]. In the battlefield she's arguably the most badass female character in the entire game, only contested by a female Avatar, and easily enters the Top 5 of the entire series (and that's saying a LOT). But during her support conversations and quite a few cutscences, you just want to hug her dearly just out of sheer cuteness!
** Nowi, a cute sweet Adorable little girl who loves to play whose really a Manatake - [[OlderThanTheyLook a race of beings who are live for centuries]] who turn into giant dragons to toast their enemies.
*** Nah, Cynthia, Noire, both versions of Morgan...Awakening has quite a few characters that qualify for this.
*** Ricken. Just don't call him adorable.
*** Let's not forget the Avatar, whether male or female. In this game you can customize your PlayerCharacter's looks, and one of the three prospect Body Builds you're offered is one of a boy or a girl who seems to be 14 years old ''tops'', and can have his/her hairstyles and expressions also arranged to your whims. This means, you can make your PlayerCharacter the most badass PersonOfMassDestruction... and one who looks like a super adorable kid while laying the smackdown on the enemy.
* You can make one in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' if you're clever enough.
* Gnomes in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', especially the females. That three foot tall gnome with bright pink buns tanking a massive boss four times her size is adorable.
** Four times? Meet [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=22898 Supremus]], the largest boss currently in the game. A gnome can tank that-- it's about 10 to 15 times the size of a night elf (a rather tall character).
** Female {{Panda|ingToTheAudience}}ren are also super-cute, and exactly as capable of asskicking as any orc or elf.
** Some female Goblin are also pretty cute and since their introduction in ''Cataclysm'', of course badassery is in their traits now.
** If you compare female blood elves with female of other races (except dwarf, gnome, and goblin, of course) who tend to be either AmazonianBeauty or StatuesqueStunner (even female humans have slightly visible muscle), female blood elves are 'cute' in a sense that they have slender and petite body, and that they [[MusclesAreMeaningless lack of visible muscles]], but that doesn't prevent them to be a badass. Most of them fight as [[TheHunter Farstriders]], [[ThePaladin Blood Knights]] (who are even led by a woman), and various other classes.
* ''VideoGame/NinjabreadMan'' -- A cute, little cookie that so happens to know self-defense. Too bad the game blows.
* Koromaru from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''. His victory pose is to cutely scratch himself! Ken Amada, as a ten-year-old cute little boy, might also count. The alternative female protagonist of the PSP version definitely does.
* Choko from ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad'': at first she's a [[OneManArmy One Lolita Army]], then, she gets an upgrade and becomes a [[PersonOfMassDestruction Waif of Mass Destruction]].
* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' has Missile, a yappy little Pomeranian who is adorable even by Pomeranian standards. After he dies [[spoiler: for the second time, he gains ghost trick powers. His reach is far longer than Sissel's and he has the ability to swap objects of different sizes, even huge stone statues.]]
** [[spoiler: And in an alternate timeline he waited ''[[TheSlowPath ten years]]'' for the events of that night to play out again, so this time he could convince Sissel to help Lynne.]]
** [[spoiler:Sissel]] is also this, considering he's [[spoiler:actually a little black cat]]. At the end, he's a [[spoiler:little black ''[[CuteKitten kitten]]'']]. Awwww.
* A few characters from ''VideoGame/CaveStory''. King is a Mimiga (a rabbit-man) who takes out [[RecurringBoss Balrog]] with a single swordstroke. Then there's Quote and Curly who... well, just look at [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cavestory-storminghell.gif this in-game art]], depicting them in the act of [[BrutalBonusLevel storming]] [[PlanetHeck Hell]].
* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' has Cocona Bartel in the second game. She's about ten years old or so, four-foot-nothing, wears her long hair in pigtails with two absurdly large hair ornaments, and is the main character's adopted little sister. She is a very cheery girl who is always willing to help her big brother and often pouts in the cutest way whenever he's late. Turns out that she accompanies her "big brother" on his knight missions, and fights by taking her hair ornaments off and using them as a sort of transforming baton weapon. Despite her size, she keeps up with the adult frontline fighters, including her older brother. And the kicker? She is a Reyvateil, a species that is usually kept in the back lines far away from the physical fighting. Also thanks to her BFS in her LimitBreak.
* The campers of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' are all pre-teen psychics in-training. Most notable is Raz, who not only learns several potent psychic techniques but is also a skilled acrobat due to his life as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Gypsy]] CircusBrat.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** In [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]], [[HotScientist Liara]] and [[WrenchWench Tali]]. Liara is a socially awkward archaeologist that has never been in a relationship before, and can scatter enemy troopers like papers in a hurricane and crush tanks like tin cans. Tali is NaiveNewcomer that, similarly to Liara, has never been in a relationship, but can shut down your shields, make your weapons explode, and poison your nervous system with a few taps on her omni-tool.
*** Note that, [[CerebusSyndrome with the serious turn towards the dark]] that happens in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the "adorable" factor for these two gets reduced. In the two years between the games, [[spoiler:Shepard's death, Cerberus' attack on the Migrant Fleet, Liara's newfound obsession with the Shadow Broker]], and the Collector attacks, the galaxy has become a ''much'' rougher place, particularly for these two. Tali becomes adorable (and {{Adorkable}}) again in her romance, as does Liara if you have ''Lair of the Shadow Broker'' added. By the time ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' rolls around, though, Liara and Tali are just as hard and [[WarIsHell weary]] as every other character.
** [[spoiler:Legion]], among other badass [[ColdSniper desig]][[FriendlySniper nations]], also qualifies as Badass {{Adorkable}}.
** The ''Retaliation'' DLC for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' allows you to play as a volus in multiplayer.
* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank''. A cute little fuzzy alien with big round eyes, an incredibly expressive face, and enough weaponry to take down a dozen intergalactic armies..... literally, and his cute little robot friend, a secret agent who can grow into a Godzilla sized living weapon and control time. Saving all of time and space while looking incredibly cute.
* As stated, a good number of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and even their trainers.
** All "cute legendaries" (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Shaymin, Victini) qualify. Notably Jirachi has a [[FacelessEye creepy eye]], Celebi can TimeTravel, and Shaymin transforms into a more badass form.
** The protagonists and their rivals are almost always this, except for a few side game ones who are older.
** Dragonite. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qe9O90cD80 It flies and shoots hyper beams!]]
** [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Iris]] is one. Drayden's assistant in ''Black'', Gym Leader in ''White'' and [[TookALevelInBadass Champion]] in [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 the sequels]]. She also pretends to do a roar at the beginning of battle... and then she sends out a Hydreigon.
** Ukulele Pichu from ''Guardian Signs''. Unlike all other Pokémon, it will still do the assist even if it's hit by BeamSpam/whatever-attack of Pokémon engineered to be the most powerful one (Mewtwo) [[spoiler:'''or even the god ITSELF (Arceus)''']].
** Sylveon of Gen VI immediately gained this reputation once people learned of its type and what it's capable of doing. That badass Garchomp you're holding? Sylveon will eat it and ask for seconds.
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', any baby Pokémon you catch in the wild (Azurill, Budew, Riolu, etc.) will always have 3 maxed out [=IVs=].[[note]]Individual Values; basically genes that determine how high a Pokemon's stats can be trained.[[/note]]
** Goodra, a adorable slime dragon who is very friendly, loves giving it's trainers hugs, can take special attacks like a tank and hits like one as well.
** Pikachu, in ''VideoGame/PokkenTournament''. The way he crosses his arms and scowls, it looks like it's trying to imitate [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi Mishima]], and looks all the cuter for it. The similarities to one of ''Tekken'''s poster boys doesn't end there, though: it can also use a handful of Mishima-style Karate techniques. While Pikachu in the main series was generally of this trope, this one takes that UpToEleven.
*** Similarly, Pikachu Libre, a second, female, Pikachu who happens to be wearing a masked wrestler outfit and using bonecrushing throws, while still being an adorable Pikachu. Her trainer will even call her "adorably tough!"
** Azumarill. It looks like an adorable cross between [[KillerRabbit a rabbit]] and a beach ball. It's typing, movepool, and abilities makes it one of the game's [[LethalJokeCharacter most effective dragon slayers]].
** CuteMonsterGirl Lopunny joins the ranks thanks to her new Mega Evolution. Gains lots of speed, attack, and the [[BareFistedMonk Fighting]] Type.
** Arcanine. Aww, it's a big fluffy dog, and its pre-evolved Growlithe form is a little fluffy puppy. It just so happens that Arcanine is a big fluffy dog that's 6' tall, 350 pounds, and breathes fire. [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m43a9bhqgL1qczibyo1_500.gif Anyone that tries to harm its trainer wil be sent into orbit]].
* VideoGame/{{Opoona}}, Copoona, and Poleena all look like Playskool figurines. All of them fight the forces that corrupt half an entire planet.
** This is pretty much their [[PlanetOfHats species hat]] in fact, to the point that their planet's constitution reads more like a warrior code.
%% * Princess, the protagonist of ''VideoGame/MagicalPopN''.
%% * Prince Cornelius and Mercedes from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere''.
%% * And Momohime in the SpiritualSuccessor MuramasaTheDemonBlade.
* Leanne from ''VideoGame/ResonanceOfFate'', even in-Universe. Several [=NPCs=] ''gush'' about how adorable she is, and as for being a badass... well, she can gun down a tank or two.
* Villainous example: [[spoiler:Dark Emperor Griffon]] from ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' is [[spoiler:a child-sized [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic bunny rabbit]] from the Moon with adorable eyes and ears and who only got into this mess [[StartOfDarkness because he loved flowers so much]].]] He is also able to kick your ass 10 times over even ''without'' the power of the [[MacGuffin Atlamillia]].
** The heroes of the game, Max and Monica. Max is a cheerful young inventor who can make almost anything and his inventions never fail. He's also capable of piloting a Ridepod (robot) that can be armed with weapons ranging from [[PowerFist iron fists]] to [[MoreDakka machine guns]] and [[MacrossMissileMassacre portable missile platforms]]. Monica is a pink-haired MagicKnight from the future who's not only capable of holding her own in a fight, she's also a [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething princess leading a resistance movement against the forces of Griffon]].
%% * Patapon and Zigoton warriors in ''VideoGame/{{Patapon}}''. Music enhances that.
* ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'''s resident {{Moe}}-fanbait is Sanada Yukimura -- [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed]], [[SkilledButNaive naive]], [[UndyingLoyalty intensely loyal]], [[{{keigo}} incredibly polite]]...and [[ChasteHero completely oblivious to all things sexual]]. He's also the most stupidly HotBlooded ScreamingWarrior in the series and looks like a fluffy puppy.
* Rebecca Chambers, from the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' series. Originally just a pixie-esque medic, we later learn that she fought her way through a night of Lovecraftian horrors before Chris Redfield ever saw his first zombie. Also, in her cameo in the "Mercenaries Reunion" mode in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5,'' she sets people on fire.
* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}:''
** Asuka Kazama. An adorable teen girl who loves solving problems by fighting
** On that same note, Ling Xiaoyu, who even looks more stereotypically cute.
** Alisa Bosconovitch is not just an adorable and kind teen girl, but also a RobotGirl loaded with different weapons and bells and whistles.
* Dog from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. While outwardly he's a BigFriendlyDog the size of a small pony, he's actually a Mabari; a special breed of War-dogs created by Tevinter Magisters to be as intelligent as a human. Contingents of Mabari have traditionally served as elite units in the Ferelden army and used for breaking enemy formations and taking down ''Knights''. While travelling with the Warden, Dog will jump headfirst into the fray and tear his enemies to pieces, before coming back covered in blood, wagging his tail and waiting to be scratched behind the ears by his Master. Sten considers him a [[WorthyOpponent true warrior]], Oghren is convinced he's trying to [[SitcomArchNemesis steal his pants]] and Morrigan complains that he keeps leaving dead rabbits in her pack, because he thinks she [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking needs to]] [[ForgetsToEat eat more]].
** And of course, [[{{Expy}} his counterpart]] in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Hawke's companions will occasionally come to their home simply to visit the Dog, Varric plays regular games of cards with him and Aveline even asks to borrow him to help train the Kirkwall City Guard, so they can learn how people in Ferelden [[BringMyBrownPants don't soil themselves]] when they see a massive Mabari charging at them.
** In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' there is also Merrill. She's a thin, naive, innocent, sweet-natured, easily distracted, practicing blood mage and Demon Summoner who becomes a MotorMouth when nervous. She also has only offensive magic and vicious combat buffs, not even the slightest healing spell, and fearsome drive to revive the glory of Arlathan for which she is willing to sacrifice her life. Absolutely ''{{Adorkable}}'' and she can a-splode you from half a mile away with her mind.
* The Pet Dragon from ''VideoGame/KingsBounty: Armored Princess''. Basically, a winged technicolored [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]], who likes to play with a little snail and dance around his pot tree ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSBQReA4tn0 check him out]]). Oh, look, he's summoning fountains of lava to engulf the enemies in searing agony, conjures lightning balls and finishes the surviviors off with a somersault kick. Awww!
* VideoGame/EccoTheDolphin, of course, being both a [[CaptainObvious dolphin]] and the protagonist of a brutally difficult action/adventure game series, would obviously qualify as this, but it tends towards FridgeBrilliance when you consider that the label BadassAdorable arguably applies to real-life dolphins as well.
* Sunny from ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear Solid 4]]''. Seven years old, cute as a button, and able to take down an AI that has effectively taken over the world.
** Otacon, too, for that matter. Combine his male-{{Meganekko}}-osity, shyness, niceness, and nerdiness with his genius hacker-dom, the fact that he's the creator of freakin' Metal Gear Rex, and his HeroicSacrifice tendencies, and you get one true BadassAdorable.
* Dr. Fetus from ''[[VideoGame/MeatBoy Super Meat Boy]]''. He may be pretty ugly and be disgusting in some ways, like when you really acknowledge that he's a fetus, but that little fetus body is just adorable!
** Really, almost the entire cast qualifies. Yes, even [[BadassInDistress Bandage Girl.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' games adore this trope, and usually at least one playable member is a young, adorable teenager with SquishyWizard and/or GlassCannon tendencies at the ''least''.
** Sveta in ''[[VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn Dark Dawn]]'' is a champion of this trope, a ridiculously {{Moe}} [[MemeticMutation kitty-dog]]... deer... [[PettingZooPeople furry person]], who is the series' first warrior-type [[BlowYouAway Wind]] [[ShockAndAwe Adept]] and the series' first true ActionGirl (most have been [[BlackMagicianGirl primarily casters]]). And this is before you [[AwesomeButImpractical sack all her Djinn]] to [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent turn her into a giant anthropomorphic wolf]] who backhands bosses across the room.
** And let's not forget that thirty years before being a snarky pirate in Dark Dawn, Eoleo was a [[{{Adorkable}} dorky toddler]] with BlindingBangs who could wrap his [[NeverMessWithGranny great-grandma]] [[CutenessProximity around his little finger]] and ''[[GooGooGodlike blew up Alhafra's prison with his mind]]'' to rescue his daddy. D'awwwwww!
* Little Nana of ''VideoGame/VanguardBandits'' who's around twelve, has her hair up in pig-tails and is always followed by her [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi platypus pal Kyu-Kyu]], is fully capable of being a terror on the battlefield with her personal [[AMechByAnyOtherName ATAC]] even when under-leveled.
* ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}'', anybody? He's an adorable cat-like creature with big long ears. He could also throw you across the screen.
* T3-M4 from ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' and its sequel. Particularly [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] in the sequel, where at one point he casually shuts down [[AxCrazy HK-47]] when he starts getting too snoopy.
** Not to mention single-handedly demolishing ''three'' HK-50 droids at once on Nar Shaddaa. In one-on-one combat.
** T3's SpiritualSuccessor in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', T7-01, definitely counts. A cute little astromech droid [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld who hasn't had a memory wipe for at least two centuries]], considers himself the true hero of the story (partially justifiable, considering that [[BeenThereShapedHistory he had front row seats to the start of the last war]]) and is the first astromech droid who had his language translated - and he is speaking in equations! That is the first companion character a Jedi Knight gets. [[BewareTheNiceOnes He is a tank]].
** Jedi Consulars get Nadia Grell for a Padawan. The SpoiledSweet daughter of a Senator (and only known Force Sensitive member of her species) who looks like a strong breeze could whisk her away, utterly {{Adorkable}}...and things ''explode'' when she gets too excited because she has the strongest raw talent in Force telekenesis the Order's seen in a generation.
** On the Imperial side of ''The Old Republic'' we have the Bounty Hunter's first companion [[HitmanWithAHeart Mako]]. Despite working in a distinctly amoral career she constantly supports light-sided actions and takes the time to comfort a woman terrified out of her mind after you two just shot your way into the building. As for the badass side of the equation, we'll let the girl speak for herself:
--> "I'm not just the pretty sidekick, buster!"
** Hunters also get Blizz. He's a Jawa, ya know those cute robed little guys with glowy yellow eyes? He's small, even by their standards. Calls you "Boss." As excitable and cheery as a sugar-high squirrel. Somehow manages to carry a ''[[MoreDakka rocket-launcher]]'' under his cloak. Mechanically, he's ''a [[PintSizedPowerhouse tank]].''
** Also on the Imperial side we have Ashara, the Sith Inquisitor's melee DPS. She's calm, quiet, contemplative, gets rather nervous when the possibility of a relationship is approached, and will murder you with [[DualWielding two lightsabers]] if she feels it's necessary.
** Treek, a companion you get via Microtransactions is an Ewok who is geared as a tank/healer hybrid and is a pretty vicious little ankle-biter despite the fact that she's about two-feet tall.
* Veronica from ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''. She's a sarcastic StraightGay Brotherhood Scribe, with a compulsion against showing her hair. She's also [[MegatonPunch very good with a Power Fist]]. Being voiced by FeliciaDay might also have something to do with this.
** Also, ED-E the SuperPrototype Eyebot, a floating little robot that plays a catchy little tune when flying into combat armed with a laser and a perk that practically gives you max Perception.
* Dewy from ''DewysAdventure''.
* VideoGame/{{LEGO Adaptation Game}}s are known to do this: first we have ''LEGO Star Wars'', that allows the player to re-live ''all'' the series' [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Awesome Moments]] while playing as LEGO minifigures. Then came ''LEGO Batman'', that is just this side of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' in terms of sheer badassness. And now we got ''LEGO Harry Potter'' and ''LEGO Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''... you name it, really.
* ''Every'' single playable character of the ''VideoGame/{{Neptunia}}'' games can be considered as one.
* Milly from ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos Origins''. She's the sheltered daughter of an Alfard nobleman, and she has ''butterfly wings''. She also dual-wields clubs and can kick you across the room.
** Sagi probably counts as well.
** Mizuti in the original game initially seems more weird and quirky than adorable [[spoiler: until you see her face underneath the mask.]]
* Kooh from ''VideoGame/{{Pangya}}''. The 11 year old TokenMiniMoe is also a pirate captain who hauls around a cannon and rides a giant bomb.
* [[AdorableEvilMinions Turrets]] from the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' games. They will shoot the crap out of anything they target, but the things they say are incredibly adorable.
* From ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'':
** The twins, March and Salsa. A pair of a adorable 8-year-old girls, one sweet and polite, the other something of a hothead. They wield twin chakrams, have access to powerful moves, and... are those ''sharp teeth'' and miniature ''skulls'' on those necklaces? On the other hand, their headgear is reminiscent of bunnies.
** Beat, an 8-year-old boy who is sort of like a younger brother to Allegretto. He wields a repeating rifle with precision.
** Polka, a sweet young teen with [[IllGirl an unspecified illness]]. Her [[ParasolOfPain parasol is a powerful weapon]], and she has some good magic in her arsenal.
* If you are going to call Mazzy, the halfling pseudo-paladin from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II'' this, you're well advised to do it somewhere where she can't hear you.
-->'''Mazzy:''' ''I won't seem so cute when I break your legs!''
* One of the default animals in ''VideoGame/TokyoJungle'' is a feral Pomeranian dog... who is still able to bring down gazelles with a well-timed Clean Kill.
* Practically any character (even ''yours'') in ''VideoGame/HappyWars''.
* In ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', there is a spell to summon a wild animal to help you in combat. The animals get progressively stronger depending on how good your character is with magick. They go from wolves to cougars, to tigers, to gorillas and finally, strongest of them all, ... a fluffy white bunny rabbit. Yes, the Vorpal Bunny is a level 40 creature with extremely high strength, maxed out melee and dodge skills and Master level proficiency in both.
* Being a fighting game with a variety of characters, the ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' is bound to have some adorable folks kicking ass. Although the biggest one is probably Pyrrha Alexandra, who is able to [[spoiler: wield [[EvilWeapon SoulEdge]] without losing her soul to it.]]
* A number of champions from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' are members of the local "adorable midget" race, the yordles, like Poppy the Iron Ambassador and Veigar the Tiny Master of Evil.
** And Fizz. He's the cutest sea critter in the league that strongly resembles to [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]]. But then... [[ThreateningShark "SHARK!!"]]
** Nami is a benevolent mermaid who's super cute and a FriendToAllLivingThings ... with the ability to trap you inside a bubble and send a gigantic tidal wave crashing down on you.
* Toro Inoue, Creator/SonyComputerEntertainment's Japanese {{Mascot}} of sorts, because anyone that can take on [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi Mishima]] [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken twice]] (while still being cute) [[VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale should count]].
* ''VirtuaFighter'': [[AnimeChineseGirl Eileen]] will scratch you to death with her Monkey Kung-Fu skills.
* The ProfessorLayton series gives us Emmy Altava, a young woman who was the Professor's first assistant. She's sweet, she [[TheSnarkKnight likes her zingers]], she's a [[SupremeChef good cook]], and, when push comes to shove, she's a [[ActionGirl hyper competent]] [[KickChick fighter.]]
* Several fighters from the ''{{Tekken}}'' series, including (but not limited to) Ling Xiaoyu (all-around friendly GenkiGirl who one day dreams of building an amusement park), [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Panda]] (pet/bodyguard of Xiaoyu), Lili de Rochefort (SpoiledSweet with love for street fighting) and Alisa Bosconovitch (cute, rose-haired girl who is actually a robot with [[ChainsawGood chainsaws built into her arms]]).
* Juliet Starling from ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw''. A cute blonde cheerleader who kills zombies with a pink chainsaw. Enough said.
* EVERYONE from ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101''.
* Violet from ''VideoGame/CelDamage'' is a cute demon girl who is one of the most aggressive characters in the game. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytwV531BwHs Her intro alone should tell you everything you need to know about her.]]
* Being a {{Doujinshi}} FightingGame that {{cross|over}}es five different CuteWitch animes (those being ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'', ''Anime/FushigiboshiNoFutagohime'', ''Anime/PrincessComet'', ''Fan Fan Pharmacy'', and ''Kasumin''), ''VideoGame/MagicalChaserStardustOfDreams'' has these ''for every playable character''. Yes, even [[DarkMagicalGirl Meteo and Bibin]].
* Aurora from ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' is an adorable child princess who gets sent to a MagicalLand overrun by monsters. She uses a [[{{BFS}} sword that's almost as big as her]] and [[LightEmUp light magic]] to destroy said monsters.
* Tiny Kong of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' fame is a cute little monkey girl whose main ability is getting even littler. Yet she's willing, even ''eager'' to "kick some reptile butt", and is perfectly capable of doing so while shrunk. And in the minigame "Krazy Kong Klamour", while the boys are all cowering at the prospect of being shot with a watermelon, she's taking up a ''fighting stance''.
* The heroes from ''VideoGame/DeBlob''.
* ''Franchise/{{Rayman}}'' and all his friends. His [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many, many friends]] (even if most of them are just glorified {{Palette Swap}}s).
* ''VideoGame/FreedomPlanet'' has the three main playable characters ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent Lilac]], {{C|uteKitten}}arol and [[PreciousPuppy Milla]]) as this.
* ''VideoGame/AWitchsTale'' has Liddell and the princesses, who are all adorable and can easily kick butt.
* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' features a couple:
** Taupy is basically a living teddy bear, but he has a ridiculously powerful flurry attack combo that makes him a LightningBruiser. He has a [[LarynxDissonance deep voice]] and tough guy demeanor, but that doesn't stop Kyrie from calling him a stuffed animal (not that Taupy likes it).
** Rhi'a is a CuteMonsterGirl dragonkin. Aside from Taupy, she's the smallest to join your team, an ElegantGothicLolita, and she enjoys being a bit of a playful {{troll}} at times (particularly to [[ButtMonkey Agan]]). She's also a crack shot with a pair of revolvers and can transform into a more draconic version of herself to deal damage with her claws.
** TheHero Kyrie is a young {{Bishonen}} who's lead a very sheltered life thus far and knows little about the world outside Barni Village; his naivete, {{nice|Guy}}ness, and [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed idealism]] can evoke protective instincts. In addition to {{squee}}ing about Taupy being small and cute, his infatuation with Morte is so obvious it's comical and even endearing. While he's not incompetent at the start of the game, he later [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level]] and becomes able to wipe the floor with just about any opponent.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' you travel a many Earth-sized world on your own (or with a small handful of friends), hunting and gathering to keep yourself fed enough to stay alive, building your own homes and even ''cities'' from scratch out of wild and underground raw materials, slaying hundreds upon hundreds of undead and {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, smelting metals into your own TwentyFourHourArmor, mastering arcane magic and navigating the [[DeathWorld netherworld]]. All while being a cartoonish toylike being BuiltWithLEGO.
* Toriel in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a old goat lady that takes in the player character to her home and protects them from traps and monsters along the way and is just so damn adorable (you can even hug her!). Don't let her kind demeanor fool you, for she is a very powerful user of fire magic and won't hesitate to kick your behind down the hall if you piss her off.
* Ness from ''VideoGame/Earthbound''. A lovable twelve year old boy who likes baseball. Who can also make things explode with his mind.
