* Played for NightmareFuel in ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' (written by David Gerrold, creator of the tribbles). A scientist points out a form of Chtorran life called the meep, which when placed with a mother rabbit will induce her to abandon her young and allow the meeps to nurse her to death. At the time the protagonist is studying another form of Chtorran life; endearing floppy-earred creatures called bunnydogs. Noting the cuteness response most people have towards them, he suggests that the bunnydogs are meant to be the human-equivilent for meeps.

** It seems to be sort of an unspoken rule in ''Star Trek''... If you're supposedly emotionless, you have to love small furry creatures, especially if they're cats.

* On ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' everyone in Pawnee, including (make that especially) the ultra-manly Ron Swanson, is enamoured of Lil Sebastian, a miniature horse considered a local celebrity. The only one in the cast who isn't is Ben, who just sees a small horse who doesn't do anything (To be fair, he is from out of town). When Sebastian dies, his funeral becomes a major event, and even Ron is moved to tears for, he claims, only the second time in his entire life.

** Marigold's Anthro-PC Momo (who looks like a little girl anime character) has this effect on Dora, as seen [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1412 in this strip]]. Apparently its a common enough occurrence to warrant having a taser feature built in to shock them out of it.

** Sometimes averted by [[{{Tomboy}} Rainbow Dash]], who shows a remarkable resistance to the [[TastesLikeDiabetes incredible cuteness]] of a cat offered to her by Fluttershy in the episode "May The Best Pet Win". She is still vulnerable to the cuteness of newborn foals and parasprites, though. She also can't resist giving her Tortoise, Tank, a blink and you'll miss it nose rub before leaving on a trip.

* WesternAnimation/InvaderZim tries to weaponize this trope by turning a hamster into a giant monster. It ''does'' work, as the military is too busy gushing to fight back... but "Ultra Peepy" won't follow Zim's commands.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', the current Archive is a human girl (Nicknamed Ivy by Harry.) with magical access to everything ever recorded by humanity, as well as the combined memories of all previous Archives. She is articulate, mature and scarily powerful, and when she states that if Dresden backs out of his duel she'll take it personally and kill him, Dresden realizes she ''is'' fully capable of doing so without breaking a sweat. But when Dresden's cat Mister suddenly appears, she shouts "KITTY!" and starts playing with him, making you realize she's still a 7-year-old girl. Her bodyguard (a HalfHumanHybrid SociopathicHero CombatPragmatist with a thing for explosions)'s reaction to this: "Now ''that'' is scary." Mister is [[MegaNeko the size of a small tiger]] and isn't above pushing Harry around, but he seems to quite like Ivy. Maybe a little of this goes both ways.
** The next time we see her, Dresden immediately knows where she's going to be at the meeting place (an Aquarium); the otter pens.

* In ''PlanescapeTorment'' the protagonist can find a small model of a modron (a cube-shaped creature) with articulated limbs that move - essentially an action figure. One dialogue branch regarding the "toy" has your large, heavily-scarred, tattooed and scary protagonist devolve into an excited little child detailing the adventures of "cube hero". At least one of your sidekicks finds it deeply annoying, after which the protagonist and the action figure "agree" that he's a jerk.
