A function of MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial, specifically the idea that male monsters can look however they want, but female monsters need things to differentiate them from the male monsters ''and'' make them recognizably female to the audience. When the MaleGaze gets involved this results in common design features for female characters in other contexts, like HartmanHips, NonMammalMammaries, [[LongHairIsFeminine long hair]], and TertiarySexualCharacteristics like dresses or make-up (or bits of anatomy designed to look like a dress or make-up), even if it would make no sense for such a creature to have these features. While this is often done for purposes of {{Fanservice}} it can also be for WhatMeasureIsANonHuman reasons, as the audience is more likely to sympathise with a Monster Girl who looks more human than one who looks more monstrous. Conversely it can be done for GrotesqueCute reasons, contrasting the monstrous and cute side, especially if they still ''act'' like the monster they're based on.

* Borders on crossing over into the DANGER ZONE but [[http://cartoons3.free.fr/Monsite/Images/BagiTheMonsterOfMightyNature.jpg Bagi]] of ''Bagi the Monster of Mighty Nature''. Though as the movie progresses she begins to regress towards her half-animal side and eventually loses speech and coherent thought by the end.

* The anime ''Inuyasha'' also has a lot of them. All female half-demons and very many female demons in human-like figure look very sweet, although we recognize that they are not human.

* Angelina Jolie as Grendel's Mother in the 2007 film ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'' (she has high heels... and doesn't wear shoes), though it's implied to be ShapeShifting: reflected bits of her [[OneWingedAngel true form]] are visible during her time with Grendel, and a keen observer will see her posing as a part of her treasure-hoard when Beowulf first comes to confront her, looking like a very fishy, naga sort of creature.

* ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead3'': Zombie Julie still looks pretty cute even after she impales most of her body with metal spikes and glass shards to stave off the pain of undeath.

* The female warriors in ''Manga/Claymore'' correspond to. They look like ordinary young women, however, they have silver eyes and light blond to white hair. Some of them also have pointed ears like elves.

** But the beauty only refers to them as long as they wear clothes. Since they are a Yoma half, their bodies to seem terrible look when someone sees them naked.
* In ''MonsterRancher'' is also true, to some monsters. Pixie (later Granity), Lilim and Poison. They look like girls but horns, pointy ears and wings have like a bat. In addition, they are also clothed rather sparse.

* "Literature/TheForsakenChildren" has several monster girls in it, most notably Mary, the undine changeling (who's described as being both piscine and voluptuous).

* The female warlocks in ''TheMortalInstruments'' and ''TheDarkArtifices'' see very often like this. They warlocks look so like normal girls, just that they have physical characteristics that show their demonic relatives, as horns, hooves, wings, claws or tails.
** This also applies to the female fairies. Mostly they look like very beautiful humans, but they have very often pointed ears and an unusual color of the skin, hair and eyes.
*** Also worth noting is Helen Blackthorn, a half-fairy. She is described as pale, beautiful and delicate. She has white and gold painted, curled hair, blue-green eyes and pointed ears.



* Illyria from ''Series/{{Angel}}''. An EldritchAbomination trapped in a human corpse, her only non-human attributes (physically, at least) are blue lines on her face and blue streaks in her hair.

* Chomesuke from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has 2 forms, the mostly human (if occasionally [[BlackEyesOfEvil black-eyed]]) form, and her completely demonic form, which is also kind of cute, in a KingdomHearts sort of way.

** Draenei females are approximately [[HugeGuyTinyGirl half the mass of their male counterparts]], [[BizarreSexualDimorphism their tails and facial tendrils are far more understated]], and they lack the weirdly shaped forehead bone that makes the face look less human (trading it out for goat horns the males lack). On the other hand, they're less human than the male draenei in a sexiness-enhancing way: the males just have a human, straight-backed posture, but the females' hooves give them a "high heels" posture that pushed the chest forward and the hips back. Even in-universe, female draenei are renowned for their beauty.

** The Forsaken, with the obvious exception of their queen [[MsFanservice Sylvanas Windrunner]], somewhat downplay this. While female Forsaken do look less ugly than their male counterpart, they still have the same decaying parts and somewhat hunchback stance, their chest is ''much'' less pronounced than for other races, and they overall tend to inspire more UncannyValley rather than FetishFuel.

* ComicBook/LadyDeath's villain Purgatori is a rather unique creature: a vampire distantly descended by [[FallenAngel fallen angels]]. She has a demonic appearance with crimson skin, horns and wing, but she still looks extremely gorgeous and tends to dress in {{Stripperiffic}} outfits.
