** The villain in the Kyoto arc used cute monkeys and such, as well as cute kids: Tsukuyomi and Kotaro. [[spoiler: Fate is cute, but he's not exactly a kid]]
** Count Willem had three cute slime girls.
** Fate, as Negi's ShadowArchetype, has his own BattleHarem of, you guessed it, cute girls. [[spoiler: Which he took in and raised after the war destroyed their homelands.]]

* FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi: Features both the [[TheDitz goblins]] and the [[MascotMook Imps]]. Both provide comic relief and are, usually, very mischevious. Occasionaly, then can, in fact, act with cruelty, but it seems to stem mostly from the way the are themselves treated. Later on, Ami gets [[spoiler: new, youma-empowered imps (basically baby youma) they come with overalls and tiny hard-hats...]]

* Gru's adorable minion thingies from ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe''. WordOfGod is that they're genetically engineered corn kernels.
** The minions' origins are {{retcon}}ned in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'' spin-off/prequel to "yellow henchmen who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from yellow single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve history's most ambitious villains". Their previous masters include a [[TyrannosaurusRex T. rex]], UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, and {{Dracula}}. The downfall of all three can be directly attributed to the Minions' incompetence.

* In the animated Korean film ''Animation/AachiAndSsipak'', the Diaper Gang are a group of little blue mutants that speak in high-pitched voices, ride in cute vehicles, and [[BloodyHilarious look funny when they die in violent ways]]. Despite this, they can be pretty dangerous at times.



* In the Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/BatmanReturns'', the Penguin has an army of circus performers as his main gang, but also has an army of...[[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguins]]. Of course they are more pets than evil minions.
* ''AustinPowers'': Instead of a pool of sharks with FrickinLaserBeams on their heads like he wanted, Dr. Evil ends up with a pool full of ill-tempered mutated seabass, because that's all his BeleagueredAssistant could get.
* The battle droids in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels. ''Roger roger!''
** Now with an even more [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=druJS_oTZW8 adorable voice!]]
* The Goblins of the ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' even if their [[UglyCute adorableness]] is a question of taste.

* The Imps from ''Series/RescueSentaiGogoFive'' (Battling in ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue'') is probably the least scary {{Mook}} in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' franchise. In fact in one episode they help three teenage girls that were lost in the forest by returned their map but the poor thing was clawed!

* Hater's army of Watchdogs from ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder''.
** These seem to be the norm for [[CardCarryingVillain villains]] in-universe, cf. Emperor Awesome's "Fist Fighters." [[KnightOfCerebus Lord Dominator]]'s army of Lava-Bots are a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]--intentionally designed by the show's artists as DarkerAndEdgier versions of the Watchdogs, they're both terrifying and competent.

A HandWave is usually given, such as these adorable minions are simply practical due to being easy to produce (if they are artificial beings), work for practically nothing, or are enslaved.

* Most of TheHeartless in ''Videogame/KingdomHearts'' are pretty cute, with bright colours, beady eyes and simplified, cartoony forms. The Shadows are cute, do the least damage, are the most common type of Heartless in the game, are the first type you encounter, and judging from the reports, [[spoiler:probably the original species of Heartless...most of the scarier ones are manufactured.]] The exceptions (e.g. [[http://www.khwiki.com/Darkball Darkball]] and [[http://www.khwiki.com/Invisible Invisible]]) are mostly Purebloods.

* ''{{Redwall}}'''s villains are all small fuzzy animals. They're not meant to be cute, but a lot of the fans find the [[ThePigpen scruffiness]], [[FunetikAksent pseudo-cockney accents]], and bumbling incompetence of the {{Mook}}s more appealing than otherwise.
