* This trope is inherent to many a ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' monster, but also some villains. If the FiveBadBand has a small child, expect her to be TheStarscream or something close to that (case in point: Mora in ''[[Series/PowerRangersSPD SPD]]'').
** It goes both ways. ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', has had kid villains too, like Tran in ''Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman'' (who, before his PlotRelevantAgeUp into Tranza, was only second to Radiguet in bastardry) and Akomaru in ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' (who hated Kou so much that even death wouldn't stop him). Then ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' took the trope to its logical extreme in Brave 19, with a MonsterOfTheWeek so sickeningly cute that she can force people to do her bidding just by making puppy-dog eyes at them. ''Kyoryuger'' also had a recurring villain that fell under this.

* Played with on ''Series/LateNight with Creator/ConanOBrien'', which had a recurring character called "The Evil Puppy." It's a golden retriever puppy that sits on a throne of skulls with red lights and "[[Music/CarminaBurana O Fortuna]]" playing. The puppy itself, rather than being a trained dog, is just sitting there, looking around, not doing anything, even falling asleep once. The audience usually "awwww" him to which Conan responds "Don't 'aww' him, he's evil!" Sometimes during sketches, [[SpecialEffectsFailure special effects]] will give him "evil" powers.

* Lakitu in most ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' games. He rides around on a smiling cloud, has cute glasses, is harder than hell to kill, and drops eggs on you that hatch into [[TheSpiny spinies]] when they hit the ground. The obvious exceptions are ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'', where he's just another enemy, and the ''Kart'' games, [[BottomlessPitRescueService where he actually grabs you if you fall off the track.]]

** [[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]]'', [[spoiler:where he builds a theme park for Kirby for his 20th anniversary as an apology for what he did in the last game and even have fun little races with him.]]
