* In the Marvel Universe, a powerful hero is SquirrelGirl, [[PettingZooPeople a young woman]] with [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway the powers of squirrel-agility and control]]. {{Thanos}}, DoctorDoom, {{MODOK}}, and {{Deadpool}}, among others, have all (somehow) fallen to her. She is Marvel's LethalJokeCharacter. Almost all of her victories are off-panel, and it's a bit of a running gag to jump back and forth over whether it was the real Doom and Thanos she defeated ([[ActuallyADoombot as robot duplicates and clones, respectively, are common retcons used to explain particularly embarrassing defeats by those villains]]).
* Also in a Marvel vein, during ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' (specifically ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' and ''YoungAvengers'' crossover) when the Young Avengers arrive to find the Runaways lair, they meet [[CuteBruiser 11 year old Molly Hayes]] outside. Due to a mix-up, Molly assumes they are bad guys and "hides under their car". Now by "hide under their car" we mean find a better place to lift the car and throw it at them. Yeah, they were not really expecting that. Earlier in the Runaways' series, when {{Wolverine}} scared her at the front of a cathedral, the comic cuts from him starting to threaten her to shut her up... to him flying across the street outside.
** And then there's Klara, who has considerable unaddressed trauma issues and [[GreenThumb the ability to summon violent plant life]]. A paramilitary unit once tried to attack her. [[MookHorrorShow She summoned vines to tear them apart]].
* In both the animated ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and the Archie comic series, Bunnie Rabbot has brute strength coming from being a cyborg, although you probably won't see her killing anything more objectionable than a few (dozen) robots.
* ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'' features some "Unusual Weapons of Mass Destruction", including the Drop Bears -- koala bears trained to kill, which are deployed by throwing them out of an aircraft. "Cuddly widdle bears of DEATH?!" This is based on a joke played by Australians on tourists. See the Real Life section below.
* Lockheed, the tiny sapient alien dragon that befriended Kitty Pryde of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}. He's so adorable that most people tend to forget the "sapient" and "dragon" parts.
** In his introduction, the Brood were running terrified from him as he burnt their nests. The X-Men assumed he was some terrible monster until they finally saw him...
* There was a ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic, "The Star Beast", where the villain was named "Beep the Meep", a [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter wide-eyed alien ball of fluff]] who just happened to be an unrepentant omnicidal bloodthirsty intergalactic war criminal. Beep proved memorable enough that he got two followup strips and an audio drama.
* In TheDCU, there is a {{rival}} group to the ComicBook/GreenLantern Corps called The Red Lantern Corps, whose rings are powered by rage. One of the members of the Red Lanterns is a cute-looking kitty... and he is just as dangerous as any other member. Don't fall for Dex-Starr's "innocent" act....
* ''Pinocchio Vampire Slayer'': The Rabbits of Ill Portent. They don't actually kill but they are quite creepy.
* Max from ''ComicBook/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' mixes this with PsychopathicManchild and AxCrazy to an eerie extent...
* Jahf, from Marvel Comics, is a little cute purple dwarf a bit toad-like android, which protects the M'Kraan Crystal. It kicked four X-Men's asses. At once.
* 3 from Creator/GrantMorrison's ''ComicBook/{{We3}}'' is ''literally'' a KillerRabbit.
* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger: Tangent'' features the "Death Lepus", also known as Wabbits -- relatively small, rabbit-like creatures that look pretty cute, but are intelligent, pack-hunting carnivores capable of bringing down fully-grown [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]]. The cute is also negated somewhat by their prehensile tails all ending in deadly magically-enhanced bladed weapons. Worse, the pack Alpha has a lycanthrophic bite that can turn a living victim ''into'' a Wabbit, than it can dominate like a master vampire.
* Miyamoto Usagi of ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'', who, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as you may have guessed]], actually is a rabbit. [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai And a samurai.]]
* The ''ComicBook/MouseGuard'' is a band of skilled warriors who are also, as the title indicates, mice. They've been seen taking down predators many times their size, from snakes to owls and even a ''bear,'' although that was only seen in ''Legends of the Guard.''
* ''ComicBook/{{Diabolik}}'' has Eva Kant. She looks like an harmless blonde woman... Who has been raised in an OrphanageOfFear until she burned off the face of the AlphaBitch and literally stole her ticket to liberty, worked as an hypercompetent industrial spy, and insists that [[InsistentTerminology her husband's death devoured by a panther was an accident]] because [[spoiler:they were trying to kill each other, and she didn't mean to set on him the panther he had set on her]]. And sometimes even her lover, Diabolik (who is known as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast King of Terror]] for good reasons), acts as if ''he'' is scared of her. Quite tellingly, her first encounter with Clerville's criminals (a couple days before she met Diabolik) involved her [[MuggingTheMonster beating up a mugger who tried to steal her purse]] and calling him a cretin for not understanding he was ''that'' outmatched (she had tried to let him go without the purse, but he didn't know when to fold them...).
** Oh, and the thing about her husband? He was [[{{Squick}} her uncle]], who had driven her mother to suicide and sent Eva to the OrphanageOfFear after taking her family name away, and, upon stumbling on him in South Africa, Eva only married him to get back the Kant name and exact an horrible revenge on him: remembering him his crimes by her very presence (it helps that she really resembles her mother), with him unable to do ''anything'' about that because she'd otherwise reveal to the word their relation, and cockblocking him forever to add insult to injury (she'd never have sex with him in spite of his obvious attraction for her, and would prevent him from having lovers or rape women). And caused him an almost fatal heart attack by telling him just that on their wedding night. And when she finally started thinking about killing him, it was because she was getting ''bored'' (her dear husband did his attempt that very night because he was just ''that'' desperate).
* In an issue of ComicBook/WeirdFantasy, in a story entitled "The Enemies of the Colony," colonists from Earth settle on a distant planet where they discover two species of animal -- the cute, monkeylike Moku and giant, hideous beats called Hydrafiles. Moku are kept and bred by the colonists as pets, and Hydrafiles are constantly threatening the colonists' safety. When the colony leader's son turns up dead and horribly mutilated, it is assumed to be the work of Hydrafiles, and the colony leader declares all-out war against them. After wiping out virtually the entire Hydrafile population, [[spoiler: it is revealed that the super-cute Moku become vicious in numbers, and the Hydrafiles were only attempting to keep their population down. Disaster ensues for the colonists.]]
