Instead of using EliteMooks or [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]], the BigBad instead employs an army of adorable, mostly-harmless creatures who are only a threat via full on ZergRush, which is OK, since he does have a rather large army of them.

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

** The Changelings from the end of season 2 are also adorable, even in their natural state, and it's clear they only pose a threat in massive numbers. In season 6 we find out that [[spoiler: the true forms of Changelings are even MORE adorable.]]

* The Grunts from the ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' series are easily both this and UglyCute. It almost makes you feel bad for mowing them down while they're squeaking, "The Demon!!!" in a terrified voice.

** Count Willem had three cute slime girls.

Occasionaly, then can, in fact, act with cruelty, but it seems to stem mostly from the way the are themselves treated.

* 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!''

* The Goblins of the ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' even if their [[UglyCute adorableness]] is a question of taste.
