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.
