** For every ounce of Badass Bowser has in him, Bowser Jr. has a pound of Badass Adorable. From his small and cute design, complete with a bib with fangs drawn on it, to his chipper attitude, always looking forward to a fight. In every game he appears in it's made clear that the main reasons he fights Mario and company is either because he takes it all as a big, fun game, or because he just wants to make his father happy.

Even Bowser often drops his usual attitude in favor of CutenessProximity when he's interacting with his son.

* 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.

* 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 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]].

* Aside from ''Final Fantasy'', ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' gives us Mr. Mew. An adorable little cat plush that could rip your eyes out.

* Being a fighting game with a variety of characters, the ''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.]]

** 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. ** Azumarill. It looks like an adorable cross between a rabbit and a beach ball. It's typing, movepool, and abilities makes it one of the game's most effective dragon slayers.

* 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.

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.

* 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 BreathOfFire games. Seriously, just about any female character qualifies. The best example, though, is probably Peco from [[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.

* 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 permissable to make her a LightningBruiser and have her curbstomp enemies way above her own level without having to rely on her army.
