** You probably wouldn't expect a Pokemon based on volcanic remains to be utterly adorable, but [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Heatran_%28Pok%C3%A9mon%29 Heatran]] certainly fits the bill. With its derpy, bulldog-like face, its surprisingly high-pitched [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp44T---mUw cry]], and the fact that it can be either male or female (and is the only legendary thus far that is able to), it's hard ''not'' to fall in love with the cute, melty lava guy.

* Ghouls in ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' are now this, as opposed to their ghastly, zombie-like design in the previous games. Rather than looking necrotic and decayed, they are covered in scars caused by radiation burns but still resemble living humans, have no noses, and many of them have dark sclerae and irises that give their eyes a puppy-dog effect. It helps that most of the named ghouls you meet are also friendly and have endearing personalities, like Daisy in Goodneighbor or the settlers living at the Slog.

* ''VideoGame/TheLastGuardian''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4E0e-ZCn14 The hyena-gryphon creature]] in this game is meant to be unbalanced and strange-looking. Who, after watching that trailer, didn't think the creature was the most adorable giant beastie ever?

** If you can get past the frightening way he's introduced in, Clanker can come off as this. Being a cyborg [[SomewhereAMammalogistIsCrying shark-whale thing]] with rusty metallic skin, a wide sharp-toothed smile, and a pair of bulging eyes makes him look either terrifying or adorable, or both. It also helps that the guy is harmless ([[WombLevel though not on the inside, literally]]) [[TheWoobie and you can't help but to feel sorry for him, as his demise is to be a living garbage disposal, tethered in a dock way too small for him to even swim around in]].

** Petey Piranha certainly is this. While he is a huge, powerful plant monster with an enormous teeth-filled maw, he has an easy-going and laid back personality to compensate with. Add a lovable [[TheDitz imbecility]], adorable [[TheKlutz clumsiness]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and a pair of bright red polka-dot underwear]].
** Many of the bosses from the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' games are huge and intimidating, yet rather goofy-looking. For example, the [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy first game]] have bosses like the [[ManEatingPlant Dino Piranha]], [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Bouldergeist]], [[GiantSpider Tarantox]] and [[CreepyCockroach Bugaboom]]. The [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2 sequel]] have the [[EggshellClothing Peewee Piranha]], [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Gobblegut]], [[AdiposeRex Glamdozer]], and [[DishingOutDirt Squizzard]]. Then, throughout the sub-series, the trope is averted in two very different ways, with the [[RuleOfCute conventionally adorable]] [[RollingAttack Rollodillo]], and the [[NightmareFuel downright terrifying]] [[{{Megalodon}} Kingfin]].

** Baby Metroids, both the plot-significant one in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and the bitty little things in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes Prime 2]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption 3]]''.

** Baby Metroids, both the plot-significant one in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and the bitty little things in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes Prime 2]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption 3]]''. Your meeting with the first one in ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hz1cffHJ5EY shows this off rather well]], but then [[spoiler:[[BewareTheNiceOnes Ridley finds out the hard way]] [[KillerRabbit what happens when you touch the baby's mama]]]].

* Baby Franchise/{{Metroid}}s, both the plot-significant one in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and the bitty little things in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes Prime 2]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption 3]]''.
* Little Birdie from ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' is adorable, even when [[KillerRabbit it kills the scientists]]. [[spoiler:Turns out that it's baby Ridley!]]

to:

* Franchise/{{Metroid}}s tend to inspire this reaction. Larval Metroids (the typically encountered Metroid) look like big jellyfish with pincers underneath so they aren't that threatening by themselves (it's [[FaceHugger what they can do]] that makes them chilling). Their first stage evolution, the Alpha form (first seen in ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus''), also can produce this response as they don't even have a visible way of latching onto anything (looking more like a slug that's cradling a transparent ball).

** Pearl from ''VideoGame/Splatoon2''. With her ForeheadOfDoom and snaggleteeth (in addition to the three fangs Inklings normally have), she's definitely a lot uglier than most Inklings[[note]]There's a reason [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff international audiences prefer the more conventionally attractive Marina]] over her[[/note]]. For some, though, that's all part of her charm.

**
Gligar is a flying scorpion-bat with a huge stinger and claws. Perhaps these exaggerated features contribute to its charm, as well as its big eyes, its treatment of Ash in the anime, and its expressive tongue.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' Patricia, a "sand seal" that basically looks like a walrus with a Mohawk and an intense facial expression. The cute part comes largely from her red hair bow and, according to Padda's translations, her [[PungeonMaster penchant for "painful seal puns."]]
