* Tita Russel from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' is an adorable twelve-year-old girl who looks like she couldn't put up much of a fight. But one blast from her cannon should prove otherwise. In a series where distance means a lot in battle, she can aim just about anywhere on the battlefield, and outside of combat is a WrenchWench in training who's not afraid to get her hands dirty. The same game also gives us protagonist Estelle Bright, a ditzy, [[IronicName none too bright]] teenage girl who frequently gets herself into trouble. Enemies learn the hard way not to underestimate her not insignificant skill with the staff, and just as she's [[GenkiGirl quick to smile]], she's also [[LetsGetDangerous quick to anger]].

* 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.

** 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.

** [[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.

* ''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.]]

* 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.]]

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' -- Elise Lutus. Quite possibly the most adorable out of all the examples and she has an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome where she [[spoiler: holds off and punches back ''two Aquadragons'' that give you grief later]] by herself. [[MartialPacifist Jude]] can be quite {{Adorkable}} himself and he [[spoiler: ''punches out Maxwell'' among other achievements]].

** Toriel 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.
** There's also your character, who can [[spoiler: destroy the barrier]] [[BadassPacifist without shedding a drop of blood]] or destroy the entire Underground despite being small, cute little kid
** Papyrus is downplayed example, because he is more UglyCute than outright cute, but his {{Adorkable}} and [[NiceGuy absolutely sweet and supportive]] personality make him adorable. He [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass still shouldn't be taken lightly]]
** [[spoiler: Asriel, the king's son]], the last boss on the Pacifist Route is absolutely sweet when first seen, before changing into the proper final boss form.
** The [[IncrediblyLamePun king]] of them all, crossing over with IronWoobie, is the monster king Asgore. Throughout the story, the player gets conflicting information that he is either pure evil or just a big softie. When met in person, he is very sweet and {{Adorkable}}, but sees killing the player as something he ''has'' to do no matter how much he might not wish to.

** Mario himself qualifies, being a happy-go-lucky, cheerful man who can level armies with ease. His brother, Luigi is Badass {{Adorkable}} instead, with his nervous and timid demeanor, but still being able to keep pace with Mario in terms of power.

This is somewhat downplayed, as they're both fully capable adults despite their goofy personalities.

** '''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.

*** There's also the aforementioned Relm, a cheery 12-year-old who uses a paintbrush as her weapon of choice, and threatens enemies by painting them a picture. That thing can actually do a lot of damage, and [[LethalJokeCharacter she's got the highest magic stat in the game]], and properly grinded, becomes a ridiculous GameBreaker.

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

[[BlackMagicianGirl Rita]] also qualifies, especially considering her {{Tsundere}} nature and awkwardness in social situations...which does not prevent her from ''inventing'' '''Meteor Storm''' in an optional sidequest and otherwise tearing apart the battlefield.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'': The early game features a young Connor as he learns what will eventually become his trade, like hiding and countering attacks. He doesn't have the trademark hidden blade at this point, meaning he can OneHitKill wolves and ''bears'' with nothing but his hands.
