Added DiffLines:

* LLENN from ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnlineAlternativeGunGaleOnline'', who started playing GGO specifically because she was given a short and cute avatar. She then goes out of her way to act cute in-game, customizing [[PinkMeansFeminine all of her clothes to that of pink]].

Compare {{Animesque}}, DeliberatelyCuteChild, ManChild (similar trope for men that could also apply to the worst of these cases), and TheFakeCutie. The horrific offspring of TastesLikeDiabetes and {{Moe}}.

{{Moe}}. Contrast RatedMForManly and TestosteronePoisoning.


Added DiffLines:

* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' can be considered a Western "burriko" example, as he has feminine-looking eyelashes, tends to annoy Squidward with his antics, [[FriendToAllLivingThings loves animals]], and acts generally cheerful all-around. This was taken UpToEleven in the Season 4-9 episodes.

* IdolSinger [[HelloProject Matsuura Aya]] used to affect a ''kawaiiko'' stage persona called "Ayaya" (which made her convincing portrayal of surly and violent near-delinquent Saki in the 2006 ''Manga/SukebanDeka'' film a major surprise for her fans). In the last couple of years, however, she seems to have gone from Ayaya to just Aya, releasing more mature songs and acting less cute.

* The perceived relationship between LoliconAndShotacon and {{Kawaiiko}} is undermined by ElegantGothicLolita style. While it does appear to Western sensibilities to incorporate some measure of {{Lolicon}}, the style, along with most other Lolita styles (Sweet Lolita, Classic Lolita, Punk Lolita, Trash Lolita, etc.) intentionally de-emphasizes sexuality in opposition to the perceived over-emphasis on Lolicon trends in Japanese culture. Only one style, Erololi, consciously combines cuteness and sensuality; and that was a Western-originated style that was based on a misunderstanding of the original Lolita Fashion which was later adopted back into Japan. While a related and [[NightmareFuel very deranged]] style, Gurololi, may seem to also be an Erololi offshoot, it was intended to be more disturbing and classic kawaii than erotic.

* 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.
