* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' had the AlphaBitch Paulina declaring she wants to be as cute as the Kawaiiko ''[[HelloKitty Sayonara Pussycat]]''. She gets her wish... and is dolled up in the cutest, [[SuperDeformed chibiest]] look ''ever''.

She gets her wish... and is dolled up in the cutest, [[SuperDeformed chibiest]] look ''ever''.''ever'' when Desiree grants her wish in the episode "What You Want". The ghost possessing Paulina also makes her bigger and stronger the more people that pay attention to her (though it doesn't go very far).
-->Paulina (under Desiree's spell): Hi, I'm Paulina! I'm adorable and swell and full of big-headed anime goodness!

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The title character is obsessed with cuteness and puts a lot of emphasis on being "cute", and being seen as such.

Much like ''kawaiiko'', {{Lolicon}} is an exaggeration of what is socially acceptable in Japan, but in the case of {{Lolicon}} it is mostly done by sexualizing children while ''kawaiiko'' is more about exaggerating cuteness traits.

* Quattro of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', a {{Meganekko}} who looks all cutesy, speaks all cutesy, and acts all cutesy. Naturally, she's turns out to be [[SmugSnake the evil, nasty one]] of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Numbers]].

In Japanese, ''kawaii'' means "cute", but [[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} the concept has far more overtones than it does in English]] -- and far more power. For many Japanese schoolgirls (and some women), being ''kawaii'' is kind of like being sexy for Western women: it means that they are desirable, attractive and wanted. It becomes a primary goal in their social lives, and success, as measured in the reactions of their peers, is practically an affirmation of their worth as a female.

** The soft-spoken and equally leggy model Lin Chiling (of ''RedCliff'' fame) was often accused of this, but actually fits [[YamatoNadeshiko a completely different Japanese demographic.]]
