* Majin Buu, the final major villain of ''Manga/{{Dragonball}} Z''. The form that our heroes encounter first is an UglyCute, fat pink [[PersonOfMassDestruction humanoid of mass destruction]] with the mentality of a toddler. [[SweetTooth He also has a massive craving for sweets.]] Sweets made by zapping his victims with his head antenna and transforming them into foodstuffs [[AndIMustScream that are still completely conscious as they are being eaten.]]

* For [[NightmareFetishist all]] [[VillainousCrossdresser their]] [[BrotherSisterIncest creepy]] [[AxeCrazy qualities]] no one can deny that [[Manga/BlackLagoon Hansel and Gretel]] ''are'' [[BadassAdorable cute.]]
* [[spoiler:Kyubey]] of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. When you first see it, it's [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter the most adorable thing in the world]], but the [[spoiler:blank [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]] and [[FrozenFace unchanging]] CatSmile]] just get creepier and creepier every time you look at it. [[spoiler:[[DealWithTheDevil There is a very]] [[EldritchAbomination good reason for this]].]] This is also an [[{{invoked}} invocation]] of this trope, as [[{{Nitroplus}} Gen Urobuchi]] specifically asked character designer Creator/UmeAoki to make it "as cute as possible."

** Shortly before the release of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix,'' Rowling released a teaser statement saying that the book included a character with "a personality like poisoned honey." This character turned out to be Dolores Umbridge, a [[ObstructiveBureaucrat government bureaucrat]] who ended up as possibly ''the'' most hated character in the entire series, up to and including [[BigBad Voldemort.]] Her many terrible traits are underscored by her self-expression: she wears pink at all times, has an office decorated in china kitten plates, even has an Alice band in her hair (and she's well into middle-aged ''at least''), and talks in a simpering, sweet manner.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' special "Attack of the Twonkies" is all about this -- cutesy little fuzz balls morph into pointy balls of terror when they hear music.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', we have a Strawberry Shortcake {{expy}}, whose people [[ANaziByAnyOtherName almost completely exterminated Wooldoor's]]. Since nobody but the two characters had ever heard of this, we can assume they have been as successful at denying it as the Turks have been in denying the Armenian genocide. Oh, and she tries to kill [[TheLastOfHisKind Wooldoor]].

** [[spoiler: Magolor]] in ''[[VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand Return to Dream Land]]'' looks cute, but he's the BigBad. In fact, he seems to have taken his [[{{Expy}} inspiration]] from the aforementioned [[spoiler:Marx]]. Unlike [[spoiler:Marx]] though, he is implied to make a HeelFaceTurn of sorts after you defeat him. This was since then proven true in [[MilestoneCelebration ''Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition'']], where he builds a theme park for Kirby for his 20th anniversary and even have a fun little race with him.

Cute is often evil in DarkerAndEdgier works. In extreme cases, cuteness is a sign of someone being an UncannyValley inhabitant or EldritchAbomination.

* [[spoiler:Marx]] from ''Franchise/{{Kirby}} [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Super Star]]''. When you think all of the good characters in ''Kirby'' are good and the baddies are ugly, you are all wrong. [[spoiler:Marx starts from being a really cute, armless jester-like being. He bounces on a really colorful beach ball and has a jester hat. Later he turns out to a villain after the mistaken 'end' of the game. In ''[[VideoGameRemake Kirby Super Star Ultra'']], he turns to the freaky-looking Marx Soul.]]
