* ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is set in a prison that is also a theme park. The inmates stage [[BloodSport shows]] for the visitors. This is mostly promoted by the... er... Promoter, who seems to run the place and is a PsychopathicManchild who loves to put cute, evil props everywhere.
** Even the sadistic way they restrain the prisoners is this,[[spoiler: every prisoner has a collar constantly pumping poison into their body, the prisoners can't run away or else they won't get the "bitter candy" a foul tasting cure in a candy wrapper. Also they have to do menial or sometimes life threatening things to get the in prison currency to buy the candies. They can die in the bright and colorful carnival, from doing nothing]]! It makes you wonder what the guards think since they don't bat an eyelash, the whole thing is a sugary sweet and disgusting spectacle like death race, convicts dying and suffering for entertainment, mostly the promoter's.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has the parasprites from "Swarm of the Century". While they don't seem to be actively malicious, they're still adorable, multicolored bug/fairy critters who [[ExplosiveBreeder breed rapidly]] and [[BigEater devour all the food they can find]]. Basically, they are the unholy hybrid of tribbles and HordeOfAlienLocusts.
** A downplayed example in the same show can be found in Angel Bunny, who is, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a bunny]]. While not ''evil'' he can often be an egocentric, spoiled JerkAss. A particularly low moment (which he will probably [[NeverLiveItDown never live down]]) involved slapping [[ShrinkingViolet Fluttershy]] and kicking her out of her house because the meal she made for him had no cherry on top -- this would have been bad enough on its own, but it is the fact that he ''only'' made such a response after [[ApologisesALot Fluttershy]] apologized for the lack of a cherry on top of his salad, when before he had been about to tuck in cheerfully, that truly catapulted him into infamy amongst fans.
*** He has gotten a fair amount of PetTheDog moments with Fluttershy (and has had ButtMonkey moments as well) since then, probably because of the fan backlash from the above-mentioned bullying of Fluttershy.

* [[spoiler:Marx]] from ''Franchise/{{Kirby}} [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Super Star]]''. When you think all of the good characters in ''Kirby'' are cute and the baddies are ugly, you're wrong. [[spoiler:Marx starts from being a really cute, armless jester-like being. He bounces on a really colorful beach ball, proving his innocence. Later, he turns out to be the [[EvilAllAlong main villain all along]], but was ultimately defeated by Kirby himself. In ''[[VideoGameRemake Kirby Super Star Ultra]]'', he transforms into the freaky-looking [[TrueFinalBoss Marx Soul]] by the power of Galactic Nova.]]

Parents and older siblings tend to never trust the cute. "Real men" [[RealMenHateSugar especially hate cute]], as it is contrary to more manly forms of expression. Television companies who try to keep girls liking cute as long as possible are often portrayed as {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s.

** Aside from [[spoiler:Marx]], there is also [[CuteAndPsycho Scarfy]]. Don't let it's cute looks fool you; once you inhale it, you're in for a nasty surprise...

** And then there is Tick from ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3''(and in later Kirby games). This innocently smiling little bastard is hardly waiting for you to float above him, just so he can stab you to death, while revealing his NightmareFace.

* Taken UpToEleven in ''Anime/ParanoiaAgent'' where everything cute or sweet puts you in great peril and the series is social commentary on how cuteness is over-saturating Japanese society (particularly {{Otaku}} culture) to unhealthy levels.
