* None of the main characters of ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam Life With Loopy'' were intending to be cute (except for Loopy, `cuz she's like, five), however Loopy's older brother Larry seems to be pretty cute according to some fans.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/LadyLovelyLocks'' books the Comb Gnomes are said to be ugly creatures, but in illustrations and the show they're AdorableEvilMinions.

In animation, consistent symmetry invariably means a character will usually lean towards the state of being generically attractive. This is a hard rule in BishoujoSeries where even plain characters will look attractive, but fundamentally a result of drawing a character that is aesthetically pleasing. Also, for obvious reasons, drawing a character ''consistently'' means the hard and fast details should be easily reproducible... and marketable.

the simple, symmetrical character designs which are conducive to this tend to be attractive by default.

* ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' naturally makes all of the ponies adorable. Rarity is treated as the de facto "pretty" cast member, and Fluttershy is apparently attractive enough to have had a brief but successful career as a model, which is odd considering that aside from hairstyle, they literally have the exact same body types as every other female pony.

This trope can lead to InformedDeformity or UglyCute. Contrast InformedAttractiveness (although it ''can'' be a consequence of Generic Cuteness). See also HollywoodHomely and ArtisticAge. Artists might attempt to dispel this by using a BeadyEyedLoser.

* The Art Style of ''VideoGame/HometownStory'' is pretty much this. None of the characters look too distinct from one another. Although, the game's story is [[ArtStyleDissonance darker than the art style would have you believe]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'': Tootie is considered unattractive compared to the other girls on the show, but she doesn't appear to be anything more than a somewhat nerdy, kinda cute little girl. In [[AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner the live action adaptation]], however, she is accurately portrayed as being undeniably unattractive.

**Sumireko from the same series mentions that she isn't confident about her own looks, but whether this is true or just low self-esteem is hard to tell. For all intents and purposes, she's a cute anime schoolgirl.
