->''Some girls like to dress like a witch\\
Some girls like to dress like a queen\\
Best way a girl can dress for me\\
Is in a goblin suit (they look so cute...)''
-->-- '''Music/FrankZappa''', "Goblin Girl"

Any "exotic" being (alien, monster, robot, demon, [[CuteGhostGirl ghost]], etc.) bearing a strong resemblance to a conventionally attractive human female, sometimes when there is no reason for her to appear that way.

This trope comes in several varieties:

#The result of a common form of BizarreSexualDimorphism in fiction, in which the female members of a nonhuman species are much more attractive/less monstrous (read: more human looking) than the males.
#A "cute" female version of a previously-existing, not originally attractive monster, such as a GorgeousGorgon.
** A HalfHumanHybrid of said monster that happens to be female, and cute
#Anomalous among her people, despised or considered a freak, but [[BeautifulAllAlong a knockout by human conventions of beauty]].

Female {{One Gender Race}}s are typically these. Very rarely, you will get a Cute Monster ''Guy'', although this is much more common with [[VampiresAreSexGods vampires]]. Assume that if there is a MonsterMash, the few female member(s) will be Cute Monster Girls.

Cute Monster Girls sometimes create the UnfortunateImplications (especially Type 1) that [[DoubleStandard the males of an intelligent species can look like whatever they want, but the females]] must ''always'' be attractive to male humans (because [[MarsNeedsWomen Men Need Martians]]!). [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Contrariwise]], it also implies that sex appeal is ''only'' important to said females. Beyond that it suggests that male monsters should be [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman killed]], while the females should be [[BoldlyComing screwed]]. Of course, this all stems from MostWritersAreMale so most times MaleGaze is at work. (The rise of Cute Monster [[DistaffCounterpart Boys]] could negate these implications, however.)

Cute Monster Girls are often the mothers of {{Half Human Hybrid}}s, while monstrous females rarely are. May be a subset of {{Stripperiffic}}. Often mentioned in discussions about the alienation of some women from genre fandom.

Subtrope of MonstrousHumanoid. Related to MoeAnthropomorphism and Gijinka in FanArt circles. Often subject to FantasticArousal. Compare [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Cute Alien Girl]], [[HumanoidFemaleAnimal Cute Humanoid]] [[LittleBitBeastly Animal Girl]], and CuteGhostGirl.

Related to YouSexyBeast, although males are the more common recipient of that.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Lum from ''UruseiYatsura'' looks like a cute teenaged girl with green hair and little horns, but is explained as being an alien whose race is the [[AncientAstronauts inspiration]] for Japanese ogres. Her being such is actually lifted straight from Japanese mythology, where Oni women are supernaturally beautiful, but capable of [[DemonHead assuming fearsome visages when angry or jealous]].
** Then there's Lum's friend Oyuki (a yuki-no-onna- although these ghosts are usually portrayed as attractive anyway) and secondary character Kurama (crow tengu- her servants look like anthropomorphic crows, while she's a pretty girl with [[PettingZooPeople small crow wings on her head]]). One might tentatively incorporate Ran (loosely based on the Gaki, a life-draining ghost) and Benten (a punk biker version of the Goddess of Knowledge, Art and Beauty) into this category as well.
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': [[HornedHumanoid Diclonii]]'s horns resemble cute cat ears.
* Mink from ''DragonHalf'', though granted, she's [[HalfHumanHybrid half human]] herself; her mother is a dragon. Her mother is usually [[{{Shapeshifter}} transformed]] into a humanoid form but tends to break it when she becomes angry especially if the object of her rage is her philandering, lecherous, human husband.
* The series ''PetopetoSan'' is entirely devoted to the concept of cute monster girls (some of which are [[HalfHumanHybrid half human]]).
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has Evangeline, half of [[MagicalLand Magicus Mundus]], most prominently Fate's underlings, and Setsuna, a half-tengu and self-proclaimed monster ([[FreakinessShame not that anybody cares]]...)
** It appears [[spoiler:[[CuteMute Zazie]]]] is actually a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent mazoku]].
* Hazuki from ''Anime/TsukuyomiMoonPhase''. Anyone unfamiliar with the story and character would NEVER assume she's a monster! The opening theme doesn't help.
* The title character of ''{{Karin}}'' (a.k.a, "Chibi Vampire")
* Anak Zahard from ''TowerOfGod'' is a cute specimen from the LizardFolk.
* A fair amount of the female cast of ''{{Sola}}''.
* [[spoiler:Seth Nightroad]] from ''TrinityBlood''.
* The {{anime}} ''MagicalPokaan'' gives us ''four'' Cute Monster Girls - a [[WolfMan werewolf]], a [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires vampire]], a [[CuteWitch witch]], and an [[RobotGirl android]].
** The student council in ''LightNovel/IchibanUshiroNoDaimaou'' has the exact same four characters.
* The Bugrom of ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' mostly resembled giant neon cockroaches, with the exception of their queen, who resembled a normal attractive human female with antennae.
* Mayu of ''LightNovel/GoshuushouSamaNinomiyaKun''. For a succubus, she's cute, busty, and DoesNotLikeMen. She's training to work on the last part, though. Later, her [[spoiler:friend and love rival Reika]] is revealed to be a succubus as well, albeit without the Androphobia, instead having a healthy dose of CannotSpitItOut.
* Every single girl except for Kyoko (Tsukune's cute but human cousin) in ''RosarioToVampire''. They spend the most of their time hiding their monster traits, though, so they look completely human except during fights.
** Well, Yukari doesn't really transform, though she's still cute!! When transformed, the main gals (and many of the supporting cast) are STILL cute (Moka is devastatingly so, Kurumu becomes ultra exotic, etc.).
* ''{{Demonbane}}'' takes this to the logical extreme: female ''books'' look like cute girls. Yes, books. And since no characters in the series are stated to be male books and there are books that don't look like cute girls, it can be safely assumed that male books look like regular books.
* Borders on crossing over into the DANGER ZONE but [[http://cartoons3.free.fr/Monsite/Images/BagiTheMonsterOfMightyNature.jpg Bagi]] of ''Bagi the Monster of Mighty Nature''. Though as the movie progresses she begins to regress towards her half-animal side and eventually loses speech and coherent thought by the end.
* Fran Madaraki of ''FrankenFran'' is a {{Moe}} FrankensteinsMonster. Or at least her appearance is cute (when she isn't falling apart). Fran herself is... [[MadScientist less]] [[MadDoctor than]] [[FateWorseThanDeath cute]].
** Gavrill and Veronica can also be pretty damn cute, as can [[spoiler:officer Kuhou]] after she was transformed into a monster girl.
* There is a whole sub-genre for redrawing mecha as girls wearing the machine as armor. It has gone so far as the Destroid ''Monster!'' But perhaps the ultimate mecha example is the [[http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg223/HatKunKangaroo/SRTValsion.jpg Valsion's]] entirely canon sister unit, the [[http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg223/HatKunKangaroo/Valsionelined.jpg Valsione]]. (Apparently the Valsion's operator made the Valsione for his daughter, who gave it a feminine form out of personal preference.)
* The Wind warriors from ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' explicitly embody this trope - when Zoe obtains the Beast Wind spirit, not only does it resemble nothing other than a lingerie model with avian wings and feet, but unlike ''every other (good) Beast spirit'', it doesn't even have the destructive impulses that took other characters up to three episodes to get under control. This is slightly more excusable with the other Wind warriors, as one of them is supposed to be human, another is supposed to be half-human, and the last has no real requirements - but each form distinctly fails in the "Monster" part of "Digital Monster".
** The earlier Angewomon, [=LadyDevimon=], Lilymon and Rosemon. The [[BishonenLine Bishoujo Line]] means most female Digimon are gonna end up like this at some point.
** However, if you want to keep the ‘monster’ in monster girl, you want the villainous Ranamon. Green, covered with seashell-themed, uh, head-things, and cute as a button. Her Beast Spirit form, Calmaramon, is much more monstrous, with a giant squidlike body beneath the humanoid portion. Though it wasn't used that way, you get the feeling the designer had in mind hapless victims approaching a "woman" in the water, and then out comes Cthulhu's little sister to '''kill you to death'''.
* Holo from ''SpiceAndWolf'' is a ''very'' [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cit_spicy_wolf_-_Horo_-_in_a_field_-_elevens_dont_know_L_R.jpg cute girl]] with wolf ears and a big fluffy tail, both of which she keeps hidden under clothing when she wants to pass for human. Her true form is that of [[CanisMajor a wolf as large as a bus]], which is rather less cute.
* Though the Zentradi from ''{{Macross}}'' and ''{{Robotech}}'' are HumanAliens, the males range in appearance from ugly to average to handsome, with the occasional odd skin tone and/or cybernetic aspect, while the female Zentradi are always depicted as beautiful. The Zentradi designs in ''[[Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove Do You Remember Love?]]'' are probably the strongest examples of this trope.
* Tons of them in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', especially during the tournament which features a cat-girl announcer and a dragon-girl referee. There are Monster Boys too, (Yoko) Kurama probably being the main one.
* Almost every member of the UnwantedHarem in ''OmamoriHimari''. There's a CatGirl with GagBoobs, a ForeignFanservice {{Meido}} tea-cup spirit with even bigger GagBoobs, a TokenMiniMoe water-snake spirit EmotionlessGirl, and a blood-thirsty {{Yandere}} forest spirit.
* Niche from ''LetterBee'', as while her cuteness depends on who you ask, she certainly fills the monster and girl roles. And then there's [[spoiler:Niche's sister]]...
* [[spoiler:Miiru]] from the second volume of ''FushigiYuugi''. She is actually [[spoiler:a servant of Tenkou who became such because she and her brother were killed for [[BrotherSisterIncest incest]] and wanted Tenkou's help to find a place where they could be happy]]. In the manga, her shadow is shown as a demon.
* ''MonsterSoul'' has a few, with two of them being a mummy and a golem respectfully.
* Gainax's various merchandise for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' includes the "Apostle XX" line of figurines, which takes several of the Angels and gives them a [[MoeAnthropomorphism female humanoid makeover]]. Behold [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_02.html Lilith]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_03.html Sachiel]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_04.html Shamshel]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_10.html Sahaquiel]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_14.html Zeruel]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_15.html Arael]], [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_16.html Armisael]] and [[http://www.gainax.co.jp/goods/angel_xx/angel_17.html Tabris]]. Technically, [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination Rei]]]] might also count.
* All of the female mermaids in ''SetoNoHanayome''. The males tend to be less "cute" and more "[[TestosteronePoisoning Manly]]". Except [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Masa]].
* Celty from ''{{Durarara}}'' is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dullahan Dullahan]] that looks like a beautiful, though deathly pale, woman from the neck down. From the neck up? Well, [[HeadlessHorseman she has no head]]. [[spoiler:When we ''do'' finally see her head, it's that of a cute, auburn-haired girl -- A far cry from the hideous, rotten-fleshed heads of the Dullahan of Celtic legend.]]
* Chomesuke from ''DGrayMan'' has 2 forms, the mostly human (if occasionally [[BlackEyesOfEvil black-eyed]]) form, and her completely demonic form, which is also kind of cute, in a KingdomHearts sort of way.
* Seras Victoria from ''{{Hellsing}}'' is a vampire, but she looks normal except for her red eyes.
* ''PrincessResurrection'' has Riza Wildman; granted, she's at least half human, but the other half (and DEFINITELY the side she takes after) is a flesh tearing, vicious werewolf. There's also [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Reiri]] and [[RobotGirl Flande]], as well as the main character Hime [[spoiler:who's a phoenix in human form]], among a few others.
* Graham from ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'' is a [[SpearCounterpart male version]]; he is a [[UglyCute unsettling-yet-endearing]] [[MixAndMatchCritter patchwork]] of {{Bishounen}} and Gothic horror monster (like [[Franchise/{{Frankenstein}} Frankenstein's Monster]] or ThePhantomOfTheOpera).
* Chocola, the vampire daughter of ''Manga/DonDracula''. One episode has Don Dracula specify that her mother was the most beautiful woman hr has ever known, and that Chocola takes after her.
* Shia, from ''Manga/PitaTen'', is a demon/demon's apprentice (depending on whether you're reading the manga or watching the anime,) but she looks completely human and is also very, very, very cute. The males in canon all fawn for her and many develop actual feelings for her, as well. Although, another demon is also shown, Klaus, and he's also cute in a shoujo kind of way, himself.
* ''RagnarokTheAnimation'' has Maya make friends with an "Alice" (a high-level humanoid monster). This is the impetus for explaining her DarkAndTroubledPast.
** Jiltus, being a half-human hybrid, is very cute if you like them evil.
* The eponymous character of ''ShinryakuIkaMusume'' is an ''adorable'' squid-girl.
* The Seedrians from the third season of ''Anime/SonicX'' are like this. The males are monsters that transform into Godzilla-like creatures (and later become [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Decepticon-like]] robots...for reasons that aren't thoroughly explained...), but the females are cute plant-girls, and Tails falls in love with one named Cosmo.
* In ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', Rin is the rare [[DistaffCounterpart Cute Monster Guy]]. CuteLittleFangs, PointyEars and all.
** He has a tail. It's fluffy.
* Yuki-Onna/Tsurara from ''NurarihyonNoMago'', as well as a majority of the other humanoid female youkai.
* ''LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuKa'': virtually every female introduced, except Haruna, a MagicalGirl, and the [[ThoseTwoGirls two girls]] who are {{Muggle}}s.
* ''Manga/SankaRea'' has the eponymous zombie girl.
* Scanty and Kneesocks, the demon sisters from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''.
* The [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merpeople]] in ''OnePiece'' qualify. The mermen (male) both have the tail of fishes and fish features on their upper bodies such as gills, spines and pointy teeth. The mermaids (female) all have the upper bodies of regular humans and are almost always dead-sexy.
*** its actually stated and shown that Fishmen and Merfolk arent gender-specific.
*** the female Fishman, Octopako could possibly be "cute"
** Well except for one prominent subversion, [[spoiler: Kokoro]]. [[IWasQuiteALooker She was sexy too in her youth, though.]]
** Monet from Punk Hazard is a harpy and easy on the eyes. [[spoiler: Until she goes into her monster form thanks to the Snow Snow Fruit]]
* This is the point of the ''NyarkoSan'' series. It is, however, something of a subversion, as all the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s appear in completely humanoid (and rather cute) forms. The most diabetes-inducingly cute character ([[spoiler:Hastur]]) is a boy, though.
* Various female demons in ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha''. Most notable is Grand Princess Fire Dragon, who is herself an attractive rather petite woman with only token nonhuman features; her father is a ten-foot-tall barely-anthropomorphic dragon-man. Maou might technically count, though she doesn't appear to be anything other than completely human most of the time.
* ''SailorMoon'' combined this with ProgressivelyPrettier. The Youma and Cardians were, for the most part, fairly monstrous-looking. Droids, Daimons, Lemures and Phages were much more attractive; while there are a ''few'' monstrous ones, they were mostly beautiful women with [[LittleBitBeastly pointed ears and/or oddly colored skin.]]
* Almost the entire female cast of ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', which features a Lamia, a centaur, a harpy, a slime, a mermaid, and an arachne. And those are just the main six.
** The series also puts much more focus on the monster aspect of the characters, as every chapter tends to explore an interesting aspect of their race beyond their superficial appearance. Suu dissolves in large bodies of water. Mia has trouble shedding her skin when she's stressed. Papi, like all harpies, has a small figure which helps her fly.
* Continued in the above example's author's other work, ''Manga/DeadlineSummonner''. This work has [[BattleHarem a diverse harem of ten]] [[OutWithABang who could easily destroy the main character with their affections]]--or accidentally kill him in the crossfire of [[ClingyJealousGirl their fights over who gets to be the "Main" summon.]]
* Same author as the above two, ''Manga/TwelveBeast'' ups the ante with an entire '''army''' of cute monster girls--and boys! Though the majority of the focus is [[MaleGaze still on the ladies]], Eita's army does not lack eye candy for other orientations.
* Himemiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss,'' at least when she is in her human form. Her real form is a catfish demon.
* The ''Culdcept'' manga has a few including [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]], [[PlantPerson dryads]], [[WingedHumanoid harpies]], and a HumanoidAbomination octopus-girl.
* Merag, the only female Barian Emperor in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' is cute in her own unique way [[spoiler:likely because she's very beautiful in her human form as Rio Kamishiro.]]
* Neko Musume in ''GeGeGeNoKitaro'' was originally an aversion... until one of her more recent redesigns.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' goes both ways; cute monster girls along with cute monster ''guys''.
** From the same publisher, ''TwilightX'' has an interesting variant in which the human men are drawn with fairly unattractive faces, and blank, inhuman eyes, while the women are all drawn in the classic sexy anime girl style.
* Creator/MarvelComics' Skrull would often fit, with the males being bug eyed and inhuman, while their princess was quite fetching, and bereft of the Skrull chin ripple. Later artworks shows the males as more human-looking, and the females having unusually large eyes (but there was still some gap in attractiveness). Since they're a whole species of [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]] though, they can look however they want, and as ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' shows they can even switch genders at will.
* Gali, or Galacta, daughter of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. She appears to be an attractive human woman.
* While the regular Comicbook/IncredibleHulk is generally seen as a berserk, hideously muscular, unintelligent monster when in Hulk form, ComicBook/SheHulk is just a somewhat larger, stronger, greener version of her human counterpart. The whole thing doesn't seem like too big a deal, and many would even consider her monster form sexier, in a cave girl sort of way (if cave girls dress like a New York fashion plate, that is). Originally, the explanation was that an individual mutated by gamma rays subconsciously determines their transformed appearance; the Hulk transforms into a hulking angry brute because of Bruce Banner's repressed anger, the Abomination transforms into a hideous freak due to his inner self-loathing, and She-Hulk transforms into an AmazonianBeauty because of her subconscious desire to look like the ideal woman.
** You could argue that Hulk fits as well. His love interests do find his Hulk form to be handsome. Especially Jarella and Caiera (YouSexyBeast effect?).
* Miss Martian from ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' looks like a cute GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe, but her true form is that of a ravenous, blood-thirsty alien monster. It was implied in one issue that if she ever lost control and reverted to her true form, she'd be powerful enough to slaughter her teammates in a matter of minutes.
** Kid Devil, who is a lean and muscular teenage demon and [[WalkingShirtlessScene goes around shirtless]].
* Common in various ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics, especially ''ComicBook/GenerationX''; most of the more monstrous mutations will be male, while the women are always sexy.
** BeautyEqualsGoodness is often going on there. For example, when she first showed up, Marrow had bones sticking out all over, including on her face. Later, she joined the X-Men, and it wasn't long before she was made more attractive, with most of the protrusions gone and those that remained looking like they could merely be part of her costume (her [[BuffySpeak prettification]] at least wasn't overnight for no reason other than being one of the good guys, story-wise). There are other examples, but she's probably the most obvious.
** The resident girl werewolf - Wolfsbane - is a bit of an inversion, having gone from having a odd/cute 'wolfweregirl' transitional form, to a 'The Howling'-style monstrous appearance.
** Nightcrawler, DependingOnTheArtist.
** Jubilee becomes this after becoming a vampire.
* Fantasia Faust, from the erotic fantasy comic ''ComicBook/{{Ironwood}}'', started out as a very bulky non-gendered iron golem designed to kill fae. Then her creator figured that the golem would be more effective if he made it really attractive and disguised the fact that it was made of iron. Then, once the fae were dealt with, he realized he had a super-strong, super-sexy non-human babe hanging around, and decided to explore a few fetishes of his.
* Lampshaded in an issue of ''Namor The ComicBook/SubMariner'', where all the women are akin to GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe while all Atlantean males are blue brutes, except for [[MightyWhitey Prince Namor]].
* Delphyne Gorgon is a [[GorgeousGorgon Cute Gorgon]] from ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules''. She even wears a skimpy Goth-styled schoolgirl uniform.
* Lots and lots of them in ''[[Creator/PhilFoglio XXXenophile]]''.
* Komodo from ''[[Comicbook/AvengersTheInitiative Avengers Initiative]]'' got her powers by stealing Curt Connors' Lizard formula. But whereas the Lizard is a hulking, almost crocodilian monster with thick scales and an elongated reptilian head, Komodo just looks like an otherwise attractive girl who happens to have smooth green skin, pointy ears, NonMammalMammaries, reptilian eyes, claws, and a tail.
* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' has Matthew Patel's demon hipster chicks.
* ''ComicBook/FreaksSqueele'' has Chance, a nice spontaneous and [[CuteClumsyGirl somehow clumsy]] college girl ...Oh, and she has horns and bat wings.
* ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' has many appearing throughout the series.
* ''Comicbook/{{Invincible}}'' has a heroine who transforms into a monstrous form. While the monster transformation isn't exactly cute, the actual girl [[spoiler: who is really older than she appears]] is.
* Most of the student body in ''ComicBook/AllGhoulsSchool''.
* Averted with Creator/DCComics supervillainess Mongal (daughter of Mongul). She was nearly as heavily built and muscular as her hulking father.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* There's an [[MoeAnthropomorphism entire subgenre]] of FanArt involving giving monsters from various sources the Cute Monster Girl treatment. It's not uncommon for them to also be shown "doing their thing", in order to bring the GrotesqueCute. The most famous of these is the Monster Girl Encyclopedia.
* There is no escape, not even for [[http://cqmorrell.deviantart.com/art/Cloverfield-girl-SPOILER-76436054 the ''Cloverfield'' monster.]]
* The [[http://www35.atwiki.jp/moemon Moemon]] ROMHack for ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]]''. Your {{Mons}} become, well, {{Moe}} Mons. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bp7xhLxTs68 oh god]], [[MoeAnthropomorphism they're Moe]].
** In the same vein, the [[http://pokedex.deviantart.com/ Pokemon Gijinka Project]].
* The Kaiju Girls of [[http://www.neomonsterisland.com/daikaijuacadamy/index.html Daikaiju Academy]], part of ''[[http://www.neomonsterisland.com/ Twisted Kaiju Theater]]''.
* A [[http://img31.imageshack.us/img31/4388/1207092817856.jpg "cute girl"]] version of a ''[[http://magiccards.info/lw/en/139.html Shriekmaw]]'' from ''MagicTheGathering'', complete with a legless salamander tail, neck-tentacles, and extra eyes on her chin.
* ''FanFic/TravelsThroughAzerothAndOutland'' plays with this trope in the character of Daj'yah. Daj'yah is a troll described as being mildly attractive by human standards (she probably has the "cutefase" appearance seen on many female troll avatars in-game). Unfortunately for her, other trolls think she's hideous because of this.
* Read any Hanyou ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fics, and likely Hinata will be turned into a fox eared, fox tailed thing....or any other girl paired with Naruto. Fans love Hanyous.
* In ''FanFic/ResonanceDays'', all of the [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Witches]] killed revert to a synthesis of their Human and Witch form. [[spoiler: Sayaka is a mermaid for example.]]
* In ''FanFic/AkatsukiKittenPhoenixCorporationOverhaul'', Diamond (and supposedly the other Agents as well) can grow non-human features, in her case: [[DevilInPlainSight devilish horns, slit red eyes, a devil's tail, large, dark red bat wings,]] CuteLittleFangs and all. Depending on how she's feeling, she can either make the fangs and wings enormous and eyes glowing enough to terrify a veteran demon-fighter, or she can shrink down the wings and fangs, make the eyes her normal brown, and just look adorable. [[GrotesqueCute Even if her arm is shoved through a man's chest and her face is covered in blood and a mad smile.]] This is {{Lampshaded}}.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/CorpseBride'', the title character is a cadaver that has been rotting long enough for parts of her anatomy to be entirely skeletal. However, her more "feminine" features (face, breasts, hair) are still almost completely intact.
** Actually, subverted a little with the face. ''Almost'' is the key word in the above sentence. It's rotted completely away on the lower left-hand side meaning you can see the jawbone and teeth moving when Emily talks.
* Fiona of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' is still fairly pretty for an ogress, despite indulging in the usual icky ogre habits.
* Ginormica from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''. Your basic white-haired girl, [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever super-economy size]].
* Celia from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc''.
** ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' splits this trope down the middle: Claire Wheeler and the [[HornyDevils Python Nu Kappa sisters]] are on the "cute" side, while the other sororities and Dean Hardscrabble are on the "monstrous" side.
* Mavis Dracula in ''HotelTransylvania'', a vampire girl with a pixie haircut and CuteLittleFangs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- LiveAction]]
* In ''LetTheRightOneIn'', [[UndeadChild Eli]] fits this trope. She's a vampire, who has the appearance of an adorable 12-13 year old girl. Oskar, when he finds out what she is [[spoiler:Is horrified at first, not only over what she is but what she might want from him. However, by the next night he actively invites her into his apartment and is planning on a romantic evening with her...Before his mother unexpectedly comes home, that is]]. When Eli leaves [[spoiler:after being forced to kill the town drunk who finds her daytime resting place]], Oskar is inconsolable. That makes it all the sweeter when [[spoiler:Eli returns the next night, saves Oskar from the bullies and they proceed to [[FourthDateMarriage leave town]] to both start a new life together.]]
* A [[UncannyValley thoroughly creepy]] version of this trope arises in the 2001 version of ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes''. All of the characters playing apes were made to look like gorillas, chimps, etc. Helena Bonham Carter, on the other hand, looked... well, like Helena Bonham Carter in chimp make-up, eyeshadow, and lipstick. She and the other female chimps (including one played by Tim Burton's ladyfriend Lisa Marie) even had humanlike eyebrows, which was thoroughly bizarre to see on a chimpanzee face. Contributing to the weirdness of the situation, she spent the entire movie flirting with the male ''human'' lead, [[InterspeciesRomance and then he]] [[{{Squick}} kisses her at the end!]]
* ''Franchise/StarWars''
** While the [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/d/dc/BibFortuna_swenc.jpg male]] Twi'leks are fairly human like except for head-tails and bumpy foreheads, the [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/b/b3/Inspire.jpg females]] are blatantly designed to look sexy. [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] by having them be famous for beauty to the extent that many of them end up as enslaved dancing girls to crimelords like Jabba the Hutt.
** [[BizarreSexualDimorphism The difference between]] [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070118132748/starwars/images/6/63/Devaronians.jpg male and female Devaronians]] is even larger. The males are horned and demon-like with sharp teeth, but the females are furred, have pointy ears and only small, vestigial horns and flat, more humanlike teeth and are generally much more attractive to members of other species than the males. More recent artwork made the Devaronian females even more human, taking away their horns and fur; [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Maladi Darth Maladi]] and [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kee_(smuggler) Kee]] from the ''ComicBook/StarWarsLegacy'' comics are good examples.
*** The ''Legacy'' comic has made almost a running gag of "prettying up" females of various alien races - contrast [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nakia_Yoru Nakia]], a female Anzat, with a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:AnzatNEGAS.jpg typical male example]] of the same species (at least her husband wasn't exactly ugly either).
*** ''Legacy'' also has quite good-looking male Twi'lek (compared to the films, anyway) like Shado.
** Some of the ExpandedUniverse - ''The New Essential Guide to Alien Species'', namely - says that both male and female Twi'leks appear very comely to humans... when they're young. An old and ugly Twi'lek woman did try to flirt with a teenaged Han Solo in the novels, but honestly, you'd think that Twi'lek women don't live to ''get'' old.
** Cathar tend to have a ''huge'' gap. Male Cathar are very tall tailless anthropomorphic big cats with wide shoulders, big claws, thick necks and muzzles. Female Cathar? Small {{Cat Girl}}s. It seems though that [[DependingOnTheArtist no two artists can decide]] just how anthropomorphic Cathar are, drawing both genders as being everything between the two extremes; in their species's first comics appearance Sylvar and her mate Crado were about as different as two humans, both of them RubberForeheadAliens.
*** The same thing usually happens to the Togorians except males are even ''more'' catlike than the Cathar (being giant, tailless bipedal cats with very little anthropomorphism).
* Angelina Jolie as Grendel's Mother in the 2007 film ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'' (she has high heels... and doesn't wear shoes), though it's implied to be ShapeShifting: reflected bits of her [[OneWingedAngel true form]] are visible during her time with Grendel, and a keen observer will see her posing as a part of her treasure-hoard when Beowulf first comes to confront her, looking like a very fishy, naga sort of creature.
* A rare male example comes up in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''. All the goblins are diminutive, monstrous creatures with wart infested skin and bizarre bone structures... except for their king, Jareth, who just looks like DavidBowie [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment with make up on]] (and ''[[MemeticSexGod and very very tight pants]]'').
* The females of Chaka's people in ''Series/LandOfTheLost'' might qualify. The males look like they did in the series (i.e. like humanoid chimps). The females are {{Nubile Savage}}s.
* Dren in ''{{Splice}}''. The Fetish Fuel angle to her is played up to the hilt.
* Ruby from ''TheHillsHaveEyes'', both original and remake.
* In ''TheHowling'', the werewolves are giant, long-snouted and frightening, but when [[spoiler:Dee Wallace]] turns into one, it's cute and fluffy like {{Benji}}.
* The ghost in ''Film/DeadFriend'' (aka The Ghost) was pretty cute, despite the rotting clothes and waterlogged hair/skin. At least, she was cute before she died.
* [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Marla]] (depending on how decayed she is in a particular scene) from ''Film/HellraiserDeader''.
* In ''Film/{{Species}}'', Sil is still pretty hot in her alien form. The creature designers specifically wanted her to still be beautiful as an alien.
* The eponymous character of ''Film/DeadGirl'' is pretty good-looking... although probably not dating material, given everything that happens after she's found.
* In the fifties film ''Film/TheMolePeople'', a girl named Adad was born to a race of subterranean albinos, but has none of their features, and thus is hated and shunned by her folk. One of the archaeologists falls madly for her and promises to help her escape this hell with them. Sadly [[DownerEnding Adad is killed by a falling pillar moments after she sees the surface world for the first time]].
* [[http://gremlins.wikia.com/wiki/Greta Greta, the female gremlin]] from ''[[{{Gremlins}} Gremlins 2: The New Batch]]''. Technically, not a girl, since gremlins reproduce asexually, but looks and ''behaves'' like one. Resulted from gremlins [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke playing in a genetics lab]]. [[spoiler:So cute, that authors did not kill her with the rest of gremlins.]]
* The ''Shadow over Innsmouth''-based BMovie ''Dagon'' throws in a Deep One Cute Monster Girl by way of OurMermaidsAreDifferent. They still get to play the initial reveal of her monstrous, octopoidal features for horror somehow. This trope allows the movie to play a [[spoiler:romantic angle on the original TomatoInTheMirror ending]], giving it minor justification.
* Otto from ''Film/OttoOrUpWithDeadPeople'' is a rare male expample.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In Piers Anthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' novels, female goblins are described as being far more attractive than male goblins. On the other hand, male harpies are handsome while the females are almost always ugly. A war was nearly started once when a female goblin and male harpy figured this out and started dating. And way far back in history, a war ''was'' started when the harpy males preferred the goblin females. And Castle Roogna was stuck in the middle.
** Female harpies in ''Xanth'' get unusually ugly when they have to mate with humans and vultures to reproduce their species. ''All'' harpies produced by crossing harpies with humans or vultures are female, and so the cycle became vicious on several levels. It probably took TimeTravel to fix that mess.
* Robert Asprin's ''MythAdventures'' series includes a dimension called Trollia where the males are all hulking monsters and the females are all drop-dead sexy. The explanation: The males are [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls]], and the females are [[MsFanservice Trollops]].
* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books female Igors, known as Igorinas, are every bit as svelte and beautiful as their male counterparts are deformed, hunchbacked, and misshapen. Handwaved by the fact that Igors of both sexes are crazy-talented at all forms of surgery, including plastic, and as Igors are devoted followers of "tradithion" it is probably that male Igors remain ugly because male assistants to {{Mad Scientist}}s are ''supposed'' to be ugly, just as female assistants are meant to be beautiful.
** There is only one subversion in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' with [[spoiler: well, Igor]].
* Asenath Waite from "The Thing on the Doorstep", part of Creator/HPLovecraft's fiction, ''might'' qualify, sort of. She's a Deep One hybrid from Innsmouth described as "dark, smallish and very good looking except for over-protuberant eyes." Unlike most of her brethren, she doesn't seem to perpetually smell like fish. The fact that Deep One ancestry often doesn't show up too much until you're 25 to 30 if you're a late-bloomer probably helped her, that and [[spoiler:the fact that her EvilSorcerer father probably made arrangements so his [[BodySurf current host body]] could interact with polite society long enough to find a more suitable one.]]
* In CharlesStross's [[TheLaundrySeries "Laundry"]] novel ''The Jennifer Morgue'', we meet Ramona Random, a Deep One hybrid who's knock-out gorgeous even after she drops her glamour. It's mentioned in the story that Deep One hybrids generally tend to be very attractive, as this aids in achieving their design purpose of serving as effective ambassadors to the surface world.
* From the ''SeekersOfTruth'', Natalie Beckett aka Golem. Fairly attractive if you can ignore the stone skin. And apparently her boyfriend, Timothy Landerman aka Echidna, can. It helps that he's a venomous lobster-man.
* Used as a major plot device in the Creator/NeilGaiman short story "Talking to Girls at Parties", where a bunch of attractive adolescent girls turn out to be odd extraterrestrial visitors.
* Subverted in ''Literature/CodexAlera''. Her Imperial Bugginess the [[HiveQueen Vord Queen]] ''tries'', but mostly just manages to [[UncannyValley give everyone the creeps]] by combining a "[[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green]] Kitai with RapunzelHair" look with a few too many insectile features and a frightening lack of understanding of human emotion.
* One short story involved a hilarious inversion involving [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]], with the female mermaids looking something like [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} Ripjaws]] and the male mermaids being {{Bishonen}}. The Victorian scientists who discovered them didn't know what they were doing and [[UnsettlingGenderReveal received quite a surprise]].
* ''SandmanSlim'' has Candy, who is probably the bubbliest and most cheerful character in the series, despite being a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire-esque killing machine called a Jade]]. Aside from a few slip ups, [[VegetarianVampire she's trying to cut back]].
* Junapur, in ''Literature/{{Cerberon}}'', is described as quite beautiful despite her various nonhuman traits and imposing Amazon physique.
* ''MoreInformationThanYouRequire'' features a Cute Monster Girl mole-man as part of a BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy gag. [[spoiler: She's this universe's version of Sally Hemings.]]
* Most of the girls in SeananMcGuire's inCryptid novels.
* ''PeerGynt'' meets and falls in lust with a beautiful maiden who turns out to be the daughter of the troll king.
* Serendipity Sargasso, the siren secretary in the MonsterMash neo-noir ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' is pretty darn cute. Assuming she doesn't smile.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Cybermen in the new series of ''Series/DoctorWho'', whether constructed from men or women, look exactly the same. But that didn't stop the spin-off ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' from featuring a "[[HotterAndSexier sexy]]" half-transformed Cyberwoman.
* Though most [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Borg]] in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' of either sex don't look particularly appealing, the Borg queen is decidedly sexier looking than any of her drones. Also, [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven of Nine]] is quite attractive but only once most of her more Borg-like physical attributes are removed via surgery.
** The Vidiians suffer from [[BodyHorror a disfiguring disease called the Phage]], but strangely the Doctor's love interest Denara Pel still retains some of her facial good looks. At least more than any other Vidiian we see.
** In ''Star Trek VI'', Rosanna De Soto's Klingon character had much less pronounced brow ridges than most of the male Klingons. But then, so did Christopher Plummer.
** Klingons fall into this trope even in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. In the episode "Day of the Dove" we get to see both Klingon men and women. The men all have brutish expressions concealed under thick {{Blackface}} makeup while the women have spray on tans, and garish blue eye shadow.
*** This makes sense in context of the retconned explanation for the more humanoid Klingons, they were engineered to look like humans for easier interaction so it'd be logical for the females to be attractive.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': War Minister Ahkna is noticeably more attractive and shorter than the rest of the Scarran species; most of whom that have been seen are male (we think). She's still quite reptilian, but it's a smoother, sleeker, sexier kind of reptilian than most Scarrans we've seen.
** The Scarran emperor looks similar to her (though not nearly as short), and the "We're So Screwed" arc makes the castes explicit that Scarrans have [[HiveCasteSystem different castes]], and based on diet. Eating a rare flower (which grows commonly on Earth, to our hero's dismay once he learns how important it is) makes Scarrans more intelligent, and coincidentally look more human.
* Marilyn Munster in ''TheMunsters''. Unlike the other members of the family, she's looks like a normal - and beautiful - human girl (although the other members of the family see her as ugly). She shares some of the other members' inhumanness like her very low body temperature.
* In ''{{Lexx}}'', Zev Bellringer, part cluster lizard, part love slave.
* Lamie in ''SuperSentai''. (Or, as American viewers know her, [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Scorpina]].)
** A common trope with ''SuperSentai'' and ''PowerRangers'' villainesses. The majority of villain teams are 3-4 male PeopleInRubberSuits and one hot (and very human) DarkChick whose monster-ness clearly appears to be worn and not integral. Every series except ''Zeo'' and ''Mystic Force'' has one.
** There were even a few [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] who might qualify, including Madame Woe, but they tended to be rare.
* Little Ghoul on ''Series/{{Beetleborgs}}'' was a variation of the theme, "cute" in the same was an eight-year-old little girl [[LittleMissSnarker (although a rather precocious one)]] was cute. (Of course, the reason she kept her face hidden behind her hood was because it was [[BrownNote so incredibly terrifying that no-one could bear to look at it.]])
* Frankie Stein from ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' who's a cute, if very tall, girl with a rubber forehead attachment.
** Also Alex and Harper when they're pretending to be werewolves in "Meets the Werewolves".
* Illyria from ''Series/{{Angel}}''. An EldritchAbomination trapped in a human corpse, her only non-human attributes (physically, at least) are blue lines on her face and blue streaks in her hair.
** When the corpse in question is [[spoiler: a long term main character played by [[Creator/AmyAcker Amy Acker]]]], it's no surprise to find BeautyIsNeverTarnished in full effect.
* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', though they all look human, the male reapers usually look like balding old people that can keel over anytime, while female reapers are all at least conventionally attractive. The first time we see a female reaper it resembles a shade with wild hair. It then disguises itself as a conventional human to interact with Dean and later outright says that a reaper is seen however the reaper chooses to be perceived.
* Played with in the famous "Eye of The Beholder" episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone''. A woman with bandages around her head is repeatedly described as ugly by the people around her. She has undergone plastic surgery to become normal, but at the end the bandages come off and the doctor says the surgery didn't work. The twist? [[spoiler:The woman is actually beautiful, and the other people are extremely ugly with pig-like faces]].
* In ''{{Grimm}}'', the Vessen all have an [[GameFace alternative form]], called a ''volge''. Some, like Rosalie (a ''fuchsbau'', or fox girl), fit this trope. Others, like the ''hexenbiest'', [[BodyHorror don't.]]
* ''{{Series/Charmed}}'' features male and female examples. From the fifth season onwards, most demons were pretty much just human guys wearing black leather - with the odd coloured eye or markings on the face. The sisters themselves became this whenever they transformed into certain magical creatures. The Banshee from season 3 is still pretty attractive since it's just Alyssa Milano in a white wig, long nails and creepy eyes. Ditto for Piper when she is turned into a Fury in Season 4.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Even Finnish monster rock band {{Lordi}} isn't immune to this trope. Their first pianist, Enary, was a blonde valkyrie, who was still gorgeous despite having an extra mouth. They've since subverted it with their new pianist, Awa, a ghostly witch who's as creepy as they come (although still arguably cuter than most of the male monsters.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology]]
* OlderThanPrint: In NorseMythology, the jotuns (giants) were typically pretty butt-ugly, but the female jotuns were comely enough that a lot of the Aesir married one (or nine...).
** Loki is somewhat an exception to this rule, being handsome despite giant ancestry (it's not clear whether he is a full or half giant). He's also a shapeshifting trickster god, so who knows what he really looks like, and his children were mostly horrible monsters.
** Huldra, nymphs with cow or fox tails (and optionally hollow backs, like a tree trunk), especially since they're usually considered to be female [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]].
** Valkyries (like gorgons) are female creatures that were originally hideous but later on became to be known as incredibly beautiful maidens sought after by many a Norse hero (despite the fact that they weren't actually human). Also they're really only "beasts" depending on your interpretation of their title: Choosers of the Slain.
* The Asura in [[HinduMythology Hindu]] and Buddhist myth: all the males are ugly and all the females are beautiful. And both are very violent.
* In at least one source of ClassicalMythology (The Ovid), female [[OurCentaursAreDifferent centaurs]] are described as being quite comely, in contrast to their more brutish and single-minded men-folk.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Podcasts]]
* The ''Jade Regent'' Campaign from Podcast/{{RPGMP3}} features a character called Misty the [[HornyDevils Succubus]]. Misty is a [[TheDitz bubbly]], [[BrainlessBeauty bouncy]], [[DumbBlonde charmingly naďve]] teenage girl with [[BuxomIsBetter talents that make her invaluable to the team]]. She also happens to be a [[HornyDevils demonic Succubus from the deepest pits of the Abyss]], who [[CuteMonsterGirl enjoys long walks on the beaches by the lakes of fire and brimstone]], and [[CreepyGood occasionally starts singing while disemboweling people with her claws]]. She's really a very nice person, once you get to know her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' supplement ''Elder Evils'' has an inversion with the Hulks of Zoretha. The four female hulks resemble bulky, stony giants of no discernible gender. On the other hand the singular male, while roughly the same twenty feet in height as the female hulks, appears as a slender and beautiful {{winged humanoid}} if awakened.
** Medusas, [[GorgeousGorgon unsurprisingly]], [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzag]] depending on the edition. Those in 1st edition were horribly ugly, 2nd edition made them very comely if you could look past the snake hair (without being TakenForGranite), 3rd edition kept the comely bodies but the effect was somewhat marred by the scales [[ButterFace and a face that looked like a cross between a viper and a hag]], and 4th edition seems to go for a middle-of-the-road approach. ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' (aka [[FanNickname D&D 3.75]]), meanwhile, takes the "playmate with mildly scaly skin and snakes for hair" road.
** Advanced (2nd edition) and 4th edition also features a gender flipped version - there are indeed male Medusas, but apart from being [[BaldOfEvil bald]], they're actually pretty handsome. This is the only way they differ from normal humans in 2e, and 4e's versions are scaly like their ladyfolk, so for them the baldness isn't that bad).
** ''The Fiendish Codex: Hordes of the Abyss'' introduces Obyriths, outrageously bizarre demons (as opposed to the more humanoid Tanar'ri) whose forms exude such a primal ''[[EldritchAbomination wrongness]]'' that looking at them can do permanent damage to your mind. Their queen has a "soft, feminine form," though it would be hard to describe her as cute, but then you find out that that's just the veil surrounding her, which formed because the plane of ultimate, horrible madness that spawned her ''refuses to accept that she is real''. If looking at her true form doesn't simply kill you, it is because [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm your brain didn't register what she looked like in the first place]]. And if you die from it and get resurrected, you don't remember what you saw.
** ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'''s driders (spider-centaurs) are sexually dimorphic. The females look like beautiful drow women from the waist up (except for the fangs), and their black widow-like lower bodies have a certain elegant sleekness. The males have bulkier and more arachnid features.
*** Pathfinder also gives this treatment to the Kytons, a race of sadomasochistic evil outsiders known as "Chain Devils" which were traditionally portrayed as humans wrapped up like mummies in so many layers of chains that nothing can be seen. The Kyton in the Pathfinder Bestiary? Is depicted as a shapely, blue-and-purple-skinned yellow-eyed woman who wears nothing but chains wrapped around her body to just barely hide her face, nipples and loins, leaving the rest of her largely bare. True, her body is also covered in dozens of fine scars, but these are subtle and don't really detract from her general attractiveness. Definitely a case of the cute monster girl still acting monstrous, however, as the racial profile as sadomasochistic kidnappers and hedonists remains pretty much identical to earlier editions.
*** In fact, Pathfinder does this to a lot of monsters, especially the AlwaysFemale ones. However, it doesn't shy away from portraying them as still ''acting'' monstrous, either. It says something when the most sympathetic and sweet of the "normal" Cute Monster Girls are the Sirens (human-headed giant birds who fall so strongly in love they're known for committing suicide if their intended mate runs away) and the Thriae (where the Queen needs humanoid men to produce offspring, but eats them... though only ''after'' they grow too old and feeble to continue fertilizing the Queen anymore, and only after they she puts them into a painless sleeping state so they don't feel a thing).
** All editions of the game are chock full of these, including gender-inverted versions. The odds of a Cute Monster Girl or Guy rise exponentially if that creature is being portrayed sympathetically. Tieflings are descended from fiendish creatures and often play this trope straight. Genasi and the various races like them are touched by elemental blood and often depicted as quite attractive. An occasional handsome or NubileSavage half-orc or even full orc will not surprise players. And then there are the not-that-monstrous sorts like tritons, merfolk, various nymphs, fae, giants, and so on, all of whom have a decent chance to be attractive in human eyes. In short, BeautyEqualsGoodness is frequently, but not always, in effect. Evil races get their chances, such as various yuan-ti creations of serpent people. Even demons and devils get in on it. Most versions are horrific, but [[HornyDevils those specifically intent on seduction and temptation]] are frequently beautiful. And for a broad enough definition of "Monster," so do the celestial races, as they usually represent angels or even good takes on TheFairFolk (pre-4th Eladrin and Pathfinder's Azata).
* Used to its fullest in the ''TableTopGame/{{Talislanta}}'' game-setting with the [[BizarreSexualDimorphism Batrean race]], whose females are [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green-haired space babes]] (except when they're ''[[FlipFlopOfGod blue]]''-haired) with [[LoveIsInTheAir seductive pheromones]], and whose males are gangling hairy ogres. Technically also true of the singular race of Gnorls and Weirdlings, although not for the usual reasons: Although Gnorls (the females) look like someone's 80-year-old grandma, that's ''still'' prettier than their male counterparts, the Weirdlings (who look like anorexic Yodas in their skivvies).
* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', a woman who has become a draconic Fairest is this by default, as Fairest are "the fairest of them all", and draconics have aspects of the Great Beasts of Faerie, such as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin dragons]].
* Subverted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' with Daemonettes of Slaanesh. While considered to be the pinnacle of beauty by anyone who views them, their true appearance is rather nasty (giant crustacean claws are a must) and the desire they exude is actually a relatively mild form of MindRape.
** Also, despite the misleading name, daemonettes are not female - they're hermaphroditic and androgynous just like their master Slaanesh.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' gives us the Neverborn, a literal race of Nightmares, including Pandora and Lilith, the latter described as "the very image of woman that creation intended, the beautiful vision that haunts the dreams of men", the former only being on the verge of adulthood.
* {{Mortasheen}} has [[http://bogleech.com/mortasheen/mothstrous.htm Mothstrous]], a human-moth hybrid who actually looks quite cute compared to the other human-insect hybrids called Arthropoids, who are grotesque and Brundlefly-ish in look.
** Given that Mortasheen's standards of beauty are... [[NightmareFetishist different]], it's not surprising to learn they consider Mothstrous one of the most hideous and grotesque of all Arthropoids. For comparison's sake, ''[[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/blighterfly.htm this]]'' is one of the Arthropoids they consider "beautiful".
* ''Tabletopgame/YuGiOh'' has quite a few of examples of these.
** One of them would [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Fabled_Krus Fabled Krus]] who also appears to be a ShrinkingViolet.
** The Fascinating Fiend archetype visually resemble young girls in their own artworks, but based on the artwork of "Fascinating Trap Hole", they are either vicious creatures in disguise, or they play bait to trap prey for their "pets."
* In ''TabletopGame/MaidRPG'', due to the rather random nature of the character generation system, it is very likely that at least one of your maids is gonna end up as one from the start.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Kate Monster from ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' was going to have a lot of fuzz, similar to Trekkie Monster, but was shaved before production so she would look better with a male (and human) love interest.
* Magda in ''TanzDerVampire'' becomes a gorgeous vampiress after she's bitten (though some actresses in the part do subvert this by applying some rather distorted makeup after she's been turned). In addition, sometimes female chorus vampires fall into this as well. [[spoiler:Sarah is one by the end of the show, without exception between actresses.]] Herbert's a rather cute monster ''boy''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' is Mattel's current big hit whose entire line is based off this trope.
* MGA's toyline Novi Stars, though they're technically Cute ''Alien'' Girls.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the female members of "monstrous" races [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe look like models with paint jobs and funny hairdos]], while the male members are considerably fuglier. (This is especially blatant on the Horde side, but the Alliance races, even humans, to some degree, are not exempt.) They also tend to be [[MostCommonSuperpower rather well endowed]]. The minotaur-like Tauren are arguably an exception, but the females still have a smoother, "cleaner" look and are designed to look cute. The female Forsaken, who are [[TheUndead undead of the "revenant" variety]], look just like goths with the bones showing in their elbows and knees. Their chests are unrotted. They put a rather... disturbing LampshadeHanging on the idea with one flirt macro: "Yes, they're real. They're not ''mine'', but they're real." Do you feel the {{Squick}} sinking in yet?
** Female orcs and trolls have perfect posture compared to their hunched-over male counterparts, with slimmer builds (though female orcs are still relatively muscular) and less pronounced tusks. While the [=NPCs=] in the game have a variety of appearances, character creation provides 1 conventionally attractive face option for both, jokingly known as "Cutefase" (sic). The vast majority of female orc/troll player characters have these faces. With orcs, it's particularly bad because they only have one non-barbaric hairstyle as well. Meaning if you want to make a "pretty" orc girl, you ''will'' end up with the same face and hair as everyone else.
** Thankfully, the Barbershop has expanded the hair options for fashion-conscious orc and troll ladies.
** The Naga, a race of SnakePeople. The women are slender with noticeably elven facial features (they used to be night elves). The men, however, are bulkier and more bestial in appearance, with fully dragon-like heads. It's also implied that the men are less intelligent as well.
** Draenei females are approximately [[HugeGuyTinyGirl half the mass of their male counterparts]], [[BizarreSexualDimorphism their tails and facial tendrils are far more understated]], and they have shapely ''bundas''. Even in-universe, female draenei are renowned for their beauty.
** Done again in ''Cataclysm'' with female worgen, who have eyeshadow, mascara, and {{Cat Smile}}s. Less obvious with female goblins, but still evident: while they closely resemble their male counterparts, they're still clearly designed to be prettier.
* ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'' has the Zerg Queen of Blades, Sarah Kerrigan. For someone who's been infested by TheVirus she's still smokin' hot.
** Much of this is due to ArtEvolution. In ''Brood War's'' cinematics and menus, Kerrigan looked [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/1/18/InfestedSarahKerrigan_SC1_Art3.png like this]] and [[http://images.wikia.com/starcraft/images/6/66/InfestedSarahKerrigan_SC1_Art2.jpg this]]. Nowadays her appearance is locked onto [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090704143245/starcraft/images/thumb/1/1a/InfestedKerrigan_SC2_Phys3.jpg/640px-InfestedKerrigan_SC2_Phys3.jpg this]]. It's also lampshaded in-universe that her beautiful human face has mostly been unaffected by infestation, and is another tool she can rely on to distract an enemy if she's ever in close-quarters combat.
* The Shura in ''VideoGame/DreamOfMirrorOnline'' fit - the males are big hulking walls of flesh, with short, fleshy tails, and a (fleshy) horn on their forehead. The females are {{cat girl}}s.
* Female vampires, demonesses, cyborg girls, and catgirls are very common in the ''[[VideoGame/CityOfHeroes City of Heroes/City of Villains]]'' games. The character creator includes options such as horns, pointy ears, tails, hooved/clawed feet, etc. Even one of the NPC heroines is a catgirl.
** Also applies to NPC enemies. Most of the various demons the you can fight are grotesque monsters, except for the succubi.
* A large number of the enemies and villains in ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}'' are Cute Monster Girls. Among them: Cute Scorpion-Girls, Cute Water Lobster Thing Girls, Cute Snake Girls, and ''Cute Zombie Girls''.
* Nearly every single ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' character ([[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters and there are a lot]]) is one of these, with LittleBitBeastly individuals rampant, and some of the most horrendous mythological creatures appearing [[HumanAliens almost indistinguishable to humans]]. For only some examples, Nitori is supposed to be [[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/kappa/ a kappa]], Aya and Hatate are supposed to be [[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/tengu/ (crow) tengu]], Suika and Yuugi are supposed to be [[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/oni/ oni]], Mamizou is supposed to be [[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/tanuki/ a tanuki]], [[SpeciesSurname Satori]] and Koishi are supposed to be [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satori_%28folklore%29 Satori]], and Yamame is meant to be a GiantSpider, and yet at most they only have one or two features that indicate them as such. The few male characters in the series tend to appear more monstrous (and old), with Genji being a talking turtle and Unzan being a cloud.
** With so many examples of this trope, inevitably it is occasionally subverted. Kogasa ([[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/karakasaobake/ a karakasa]]) is explicitly ''both'' the girl with the blue dress and the umbrella she's holding. In one of Maribel's dream-excursions to Gensokyo she is attacked by a youkai rabbit which she describes as looking like a monster rather than a girl. The various beast-type youkai have shown the ability to transform back into an animal form. Played with by Nue (a, well, [[http://www.obakemono.com/obake/nue/ nue]]), who is embarassed by how unscary her ShapeshifterDefaultForm is and goes to great lengths to hide it.
* Most, if not all, the female demons and deities in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series of games, especially ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', as even the ones who are officially supposed to be hideous still manage to look really sexy (with perhaps the only exception definitely being the "Old Hag" type of demoness)!
** Mother Harlot has a pretty nice body. [[http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lnayixWLTB1qlhbe8o1_500.jpg Her face, on the other hand, could use some work.]]
* Many of the monsters in the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games are also Cute Monster Girls, such as the Succubus, and the Perspherone, a demonic ''[[{{Meido}} maid]]'' who happens to know Kung-Fu.
** Laura, the vampire child from 'VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'', especially in the ''Reverie'' {{DLC}}, where she and Gabriel form a strong bond.
* Yeto of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is a big, hulking yeti with a face that one would expect a yeti to have. His wife Yeta, on the other hand, is a walking ball of fur (or clothes, it's hard to tell) with a much cuter face. [[spoiler:At least when she's not possessed by the dungeon boss, then her face [[NightmareFace goes all scary-like]]...]]
** The eponymous Twilight Princess: regular twilight citizens aren't so much ugly as featureless (most of them being black mannequin-like when not under Zant's curse) she's absolutely ''gorgeous'' and looks mostly like a woman with a weird skin-tone.
** The Zoras are an odd case in this game. Most of them look the same, with no sexual dimorphism and being ''very'' androgynous. Some of them wear fish-like helmets, but their real faces are rather human. The Zora Queen Rutela, on the other hand, is much more human-like, with a distinct bust and something hairlike on her head.
** And of course, Ruto grows into this after the TimeSkip.
* Most monsters in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' games are male, with the most obvious exceptions being the [[HornyDevils Succubus]] and the [[CatGirl Nekomata]], which are [[OneGenderRace all female]].
** The Succubus and the Nekomata brought in the artist who did the earlier games in the Marl series (''La Pucelle'' and ''Rhapsody'' being the only 2 that hit US shores) to do their art, because he does girls with more... ''va va voom''.
** The "standard" demon race of the Netherworld does have females of several different body types, like valkyries, healers and magic knights (all of them cute).
** ''Disgaea 2'' introduces the Flora Beast (something similar to a Nymph).
** [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Raspberyl]] is a FunSize Cute Monster Girl.
** ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}}'' has Desco, the Netherworld's most adorable EldritchAbomination.
* ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' has ice and water elves, which have sharp, Snape-y faces for the males. Granted, we only see male ice elves, but female water elves are spotted here and there. Unlike the males, they have the same faces as humans, aside from their coral-like horns. (Interestingly enough, wind, wood and dark elves all have human-like faces, though all of them have glowing eyes.)
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' features a number of odd {{NPC}}s you can add to your party. Only two are female, and both of them are conventionally very attractive, with some add-ons (a tail in the case of Annah and wings in the case of Fall-From-Grace). With Grace it's expected; she ''is'' a demon, and a [[HornyDevils succubus]] at that. However, Annah is a tiefling; that is, someone descended from a fiendish grandparent (possibly with a few "greats" thrown in), and most fiends in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', even female ones, aren't very attractive.
** Annah also wears a leather version of a BreastPlate, including hooker boots. The PC can [[LampshadeHanging hang a lampshade]] on this by suggesting she strip it down further, adding a few more slashes, to distract her marks. She gets flustered by this remark, and he comments he thought that's what it was for in the first place. She claims she gets hot, and "suspects it's the fiend blood in me".
** This seems to the entire [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of the [[HalfHumanHybrid tiefling]] race. Male, female, whatever. They all seem to be cute monster people versions of fiends. Case in point: not just Annah but [[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights Valen]] and [[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Neeshka]] as well (and, depending who you ask, I would imagine [[VideoGame/BaldursGate Haer'Dalis]]). It's also explicitly mentioned in the [[DungeonsAndDragons 4e]] writeup of the race in the ''Player's Handbook''.
* Sheeva, Goro's DistaffCounterpart from ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. Despite being [[OurDemonsAreDifferent a female Shokkan]] who's [[StatuesqueStunner incredibly tall]], [[AmazonianBeauty very muscular]], [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four-armed]], and the type [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy who's more than willing to beat enemies to a pulp]], she gets more attention from the fans than one would think.
* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' has [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Juhanihead.jpg Juhani]], a CatGirl who looks... [[BizarreSexualDimorphism very different]] from [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Cathar_2.jpg every other Cathar]] in all of ''Franchise/StarWars''. {{Handwaved}} later by making Juhani a member of a rare Cathar subspecies, yet the more common version of a female Cathar [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Sylvarcathar.jpg still look much nicer than the hulking tiger-men that are the males]].
* The aforementioned ''[[VideoGame/LineageII Lineage II: The Chaotic Throne]]''. Male dwarves look like their counterparts in ''[=WoW=]'' and similar games... but ''female'' dwarves look like baby-faced teenage jockettes, scaled down to size. (They also narrowly skirt the UncannyValley.)
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim''. Jim's girlfriend, Princess What's-Her-Name, is big-eyed, wasp-waisted (and an insect, haha), and extremely well proportioned. On her homeworld, she's considered hideously deformed. Her sister, Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed Slug-For-A-Butt, who looks something like a giant termite queen, is the pinnacle of beauty to her people.
* The Pixie species from ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher'' is a race of cute, impish girls with demon horns, wings, tails, and CuteLittleFangs. It's implied in some games that they are AlwaysFemale, but the ''names'' bestowed on some Pixie NPC monsters seems to suggest that there are some males--they just look exactly the same as the females.
* Played straight in ''[[VideoGame/GearsOfWar Gears of War 2]]'' to the surprise of everyone (including Delta squad, Cole saying: [[LampshadeHanging "I thought she was supposed to be butt ugly."]]), with [[spoiler:the Locust Queen]], who appears almost exactly like a human woman (albeit wearing a squid on her back and a kinda grey skin tone).
** [[spoiler: Subverted as it turns out that Myrrah actually ''is'' a mutated human.]]
** The female Locust Drones, a.k.a. "Berserkers" on the other hand... not so much.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2: Mask of the Betrayer'' gives us a rare male example in Gannayev. Gannayev (nicknamed Gann) is a Hagspawn, which are male Hag/Human hybrids and typically look something like [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hagspawn.JPG this]]. Gann, on the hand, looks like [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gannayev.JPG this]]. Most people in the fandom adamantly refused to believe that this was the official character portrait of Gann because, really, there was absolutely no justifiable way a Hagspawn could look that pretty until actually playing the game, where it was [[HandWaved revealed]] that his looks resulted from [[ThePowerOfLove the love his parents had for each other]].
** Similarly, the tiefling Valen of the ''Hordes of the Underdark'' expansion to the original ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' is another male example, being uncharacteristically attractive for a fiend.
** Neeshka. A tiefling rogue in ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'' with horns and (provided the game is updated) a tail. Considered by many fans to be the cutest girl in the game, Neeshka and a male main character is the FanPreferredCouple to such an extent that an add-on module has been released to reinstate her as a romance option, after it was cut during development due to time restraints.
* The enemies in the {{hentai}} game series ''VideoGame/LightningWarriorRaidy'' consists only or almost only of cute monster girls.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', any female character that's not Baby Bonnie Hood ([[HornyDevils Morrigan, Lilith]], [[CatGirl Felicia]], [[BeePeople Q-Bee]]) qualifies, but the winner is Hsien-Ko, a ChineseVampire.
** Hsien-Ko is the most obvious, but Q-Bee is probably the most horrible. While her race act like normal bees, they've developed one evolutionary trait to help them hunt their prey: their eyes. Those gigantic bulbs on her head? ''Those are her real eyes''. The ones on the front of her face are there to trick people into thinking she's a dimwitted chick. This is why her fighting pose is animated so her head looks like it's pointing down, her actual eyes are completely focused on her prey.
* [[CthulhuMythos Cthylla]] in ''VideoGame/ChaosCode'', if one can look past her shark-like dentition and penchant for blowing venomous ink in her opponents' faces.
* Many enemies in ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. The exact specifications vary from game to game, ranging from monsters with female body parts to highly-feminine monsters to monsters that look exactly like humans with maybe one or two monster features. For example, the recurring Lamia enemies are usually snakes with female torsos and faces, and in ''IV'' somehow have asses showing through their snake skin.
** Recurring summon Shiva is often depicted as a graceful and well-formed female with a pretty face with her body covered by nothing but ribbons or growths of ice. She also has blue skin and lips, due to being AnIcePerson, and often has other body features to betray her monstrous nature.
** Ditto for Siren, though she doesn't appear in as many games. Her FF8 incarnation is the straightest example. She is a beautiful woman with strategically placed feathers on her body, and bird wings coming out of her head.
** Terra of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' is a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human and half-Esper]], and was pointedly ''not'' this in her original game, her Esper form was emphasized to be feral and monstrous and it terrified people. Then ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]]'' came along and [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Dissidia_Tina_Branford_ex.png look at her now]]. While that is [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:FF6EsperTerraSprites.PNG a valid interpretation of her in-game sprites from FF6]], bear in mind that [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/File:Terra_Esper.jpg this]] was the original character design. Her alt outfits also provide you options in your fanservice by recoloring her pink, blue and green.
** The Cloud of Darkness, also from ''Dissidia'', is a MadeOfEvil EldritchAbomination who wants to engulf the world in darkness and is an eternal entity unable to ever be destroyed, only defeated and put to sleep until it rises again. And oh yes, it looks like ''[[http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy/images/1/19/Cloud_of_darkness.png this]]''. The games state that as a force of nature ''it'' [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm has no true form]] and has [[NoBiologicalSex no gender]], [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith it just chooses to appear as a female]]. Hasn't stopped the Rule 34 fans one bit.
** The Nymphs from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. They have completely humanoid (and scantily clad) bodies, simply with what looks like grass and leaves for hair. The villainous ones have purple skin while the good ones have green skin but they're still pretty hot.
** The Vieras and the Grias from games set in Ivalice. The Viera are tall, ebony-skinned warrior women with bunny ears and {{Stripperific}} clothing, and the Gria are incredibly cute female dragon-like humanoids with wings and horns. The [[PigMan Seeq]] avert this: the couple female Seeq [=NPCs=] look almost identical to male Seeq.
*** The two female Espers in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' also count. Shemhazai's face is not visible, but she does have a scantily clad fanservice-y body. Ultima is also quite attractive if one ignores her teal skin.
* In the first ''VideoGame/ShadowHearts'' game male Harmonixer Yuri Hyuga transforms into almost completely inhuman monstrosities when he fuses with a monster soul- he'll usually still have 2 arms and 2 legs (usually), but only Seraphic Radiance/Dark Seraphim looks even ''remotely'' human- and it still has eerie pale skin and giant black wings. On the other hand, in ''Shadow Hearts: From the New World'', hot female harmonixer Shania transforms into beautiful non-human creatures which are still ''abundantly'' female and wearing [[{{Stripperiffic}} even less than she usually does]]. Yuri hits the middle ground, however, with his Level 1 Fusions in ''Shadow Hearts: Covenant'', which are generally attractive male non-human creatures wearing less than Yuri usually does.
* The kid-friendly ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' spinoff ''[=DemiKids=]'' takes this to an utterly ridiculous degree with some of its designs. Some are sort of logical, but others, like the Banshee and Harpy, are a bit of stretch. They even managed to turn ''Dullahan'' (a HeadlessHorseman who rides on a similarly headless horse and functions as an omen of death) into one of them. [[http://www.bogleech.com/gba-demikids1.html Take a look.]]
* In ''VideoGame/GrandiaII'', a large, ugly, ''male'' beastman named Marag joins your party early on. This isn't so bad until you visit his village later in the game and find out that, apparently, the rest of his species is comprised of cute and/or hot {{Cat Girl}}s.
** Similarly, from the original ''VideoGame/{{Grandia}}'', a character named Milda joins your team. She's an older (beast)woman who, though not necessarily cute, has curves in all the right places and is marred only by having horns, sharp teeth, and a tufted tail. Eventually you reach the village where her tribe lives and get to see the men-- all of whom are BIPEDAL COWS.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has Gardevoir and Lopunny. Which look the same regardless if it is male or female. (Gardevoir's pre-evolved form, Kirlia, is a Cute Monster ''Little'' Girl.)
** Gardevoir also has its male counterpart, Gallade.
** Several other Pokémon seem to be this (though again they appear identical regardless of gender), including Ninetales, Mismagius, Mawile, Gothitelle and Froslass. [[OneGenderRace Froslass is only female.]]
** Bellossom, Roselia, Roserade and Lilligant can be seen as Cute Plant Girls, while Leavanny and Illumise are Cute Bug Girls.
* Fenia from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld''; the best mage [[{{mons}} monster]] in the game, talks, and plays this trope perfectly straight.
** May be averted, as Fenia isn't technically a monster; he's a [[ContinuityCameo Cameo]] from VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth. She's merely placed there as a monster so she can be in the party.
*** Her original game plays this straight and averts it with Hilda, a Gajuma-Huma half-breed. In-universe, Hilda's horns made her appear to be an ugly freak, but anyone can see that Hilda is attractive with or without the horns.
** The original VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia has the Mandragora enemies, which are just humans with green hair and flowers growing out of their heads. Dawn of the New World makes them look significantly more inhuman, though.
* In ''NeoSteam'', the male Beast races are huge hulking wolf-men or bear-men, depending on faction. Their female counter-part race are small, slender, curvy catgirls with cute stubby tails.
* Quite a few characters from the BreathOfFire series. Most notably Deis from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireI the first game]], Katt from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireII the second game]], Momo from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII the third game]] and Ursula from [[VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV the fourth game]].
** Male members of the Blacksmith Clan are hulking minotaur-like strongmen. Their women look like ordinary humans with horns. Although apparently [[MusclesAreMeaningless the women are just as strong, despite this]]...
* ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'''s Black Django -- the hero's vampiric form -- has pointed ears, fangs, blue skin, and bat wings... making him a Cute Monster ''Boy''.
* Presumably subverted in ''{{Tsukihime}}'' with the demon races. Akiha is pretty cute, yes, but people with more demon blood tend to look... well, demonic. Breeding with demons is done for power, not love. Played straight with Arcueid, which doesn't count really since she's a vampire, and Nanako, a half human half unicorn spirit that's the MoeAnthropomorphism of the Seventh Scripture.
* ''The VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead EX'' has Zobiko, a Cute Zombie Girl. She's also one of the main characters.
* The MMORPG ''VideoGame/PerfectWorld'' has the race called the Untamed. The males are big muscular [[FunnyAnimal furries]], entirely hairy and with animal heads, and the females slender {{Cat Girl}}s (or fox-, demon-, etc.), with tails and a second set of ears or something similar on the sides of their heads, but otherwise as humans.
* ''PhantasyStar'' has this in spades. PSII had Nei, PSIV had Rika and Demi, and by PSO, Numans were a full-fledged minority within the population of Pioneer 2.
* Medusa from ''KidIcarus'' is a cyclops stone head in a wall, but after being damaged enough she turns into a human sized attractive Medusa (her original form according to the story) right before dying. She's even more of this in ''KidIcarusUprising'' for 3DS (just [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100616092934/nintendo/en/images/thumb/1/18/Medusa_Uprising.png/424px-Medusa_Uprising.png look at her]]).
** The Syren enemy, who has full frontal NES nudity. The manual warns not to be caught unaware by her female form, as she is pure evil.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fire Emblem|Akaneia}}: Shadow Dragon'', most of the Dragon shapeshifters known as Manaketes are unattractive [[ElderlyImmortal Old Men]] with [[FangsAreEvil Fangs]], Claws, and [[WingedHumanoid Wings]]. However one of the playable Manaketes, Tiki, merely looks like a little girl with PointyEars.
** While the [[LittleBitBeastly Laguz]] Females in VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius are quite attractive, the males [[YouSexyBeast are as well]].
* [[GorgeousGorgon Tiamat]] from ''VideoGame/LaMulana''. Then she starts [[ThatOneBoss kicking your ass]], and you somehow stop finding her cute. Then you start kicking ''her'' ass, and she gets [[GameFace downright ugly]]. (In the PC version anyway; in the Wii version all she gets is a scowl.)
* The Fire Clan of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' are mostly human-looking with some draconic traits, such as scales, [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation colorful skin]], [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair equally colorful hair]], and PointyEars. But then there's Karst, who pairs all of that with the appearance of a cute teenager and a [[MsFanservice black leather micromini]].
** ''Dark Dawn'''s beastmen are all quite furry and a bit more animalistic than your average CatGirl. And then there's Sveta, who is ''very'' human-looking, not readily identifiable as anything but "furry" (and her fur is skin-tone!), and very {{moe}}. Compare her with her brother, who has a very distinct muzzle (and blue fur, though beastman colors run the gamut).
*** She can actually enter a more beastly form, which is actually largely indistinguishable from the werewolf/wolfman monsters. It's also a bit of a GameBreaker.
* In ''[[VideoGame/MightAndMagic Might & Magic VII]]'' goblins are available as a PlayerCharacter race; both the female ones available for your party and the NPC ones you meet in Deja and the Pit are attractive in their own way.
* The {{H-Game}} VisualNovel ''Monster Girl Quest'' is filled with these. They are actually all a OneGenderRace who rely on human males to reproduce [[EroticEating and as a]] [[ImAHumanitarian food source]]. They range from this to [[BodyHorror downright]] [[NightmareFuel terrifying]].
* Creator/AdultSwim Flash Game ''LesbianSpiderQueensOfMars'' has, well, the lesbian Spider Queen of Mars(it's the lower half that's a spider).
* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has a few of these, most notably Priscilla the Crossbreed, a 20 foot tall giant {{Mystical White Hair}}ed girl who happens to be half dragon. Quelaag and her [[NoNameGiven sister]] are beautiful women with horrible lava spiders for lower bodies.
** ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' has The Fool's Idol, which basically looks like a pretty girl with four arms.
* ''VideoGame/{{Primal}}'' gives us little [[CreepyChild Elizabeth]] in the realm of Aetha since the inhabitants of this realm are all zombies/vampires. She loves to dance and carries a dead rat as if it were a plush toy.
* The female Satyros from RadiantHistoria, especially [[http://radianthistoria.wikia.com/wiki/Aht Aht]].
* ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' has a lot of these. Some examples: Moonlight Flower, Loli Ruri, Succubus, Valkyrie, Isis, Alice, Aliza. There are also many male examples.
* There are three female Splicer bodytypes in ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'': Ladysmith, Rosebud, and Baby Jane. ''All'' male Splicers are uniformly hideous, warped and disfigured by overuse of ADAM. As for the females, there are two aversions and a straight example. The aversions are Ladysmith (an older woman in fancy clothes, her face skeletal and distorted) and Rosebud (modeled after Rosie the Riveter, but with a garish, disgusting tumor growing out of her forehead). Baby Jane, meanwhile, hasn't physically mutated at all - her only modifications are some scars and makeup. Sadly, though, ADAM has had [[AxeCrazy its usual effects]] on her ''mind''...
* The Dagonian race of FishPeople in ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' are often more fish than human looking, but minor character Minette looks like a human girl with a tadpole tail for hair.
** There's also Squigly, who's remarkably cute for a zombie.
* The default character portraits for Trolls and Orks in ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns'' include some Cute Monster Girls and Cute Monster Boys, though they run the full range from "cute if you don't mind fangs/horns" to "not conventionally attractive, but still mostly human-looking except for the obvious bits that distinguish them from baseline humans" to "outright monstrous." This is '''completely''' in line with the original tabletop lore.
* The female [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Draken]] of ''VideoGame/WildStar'' are, both in-universe and out of it, renowned for their attractive appearance. That they could and probably will murder you in an instant doesn't ruin the attraction one iota--you could even say it helps.
* QueensBlade video games have Gal Monsters that can be caught and fight for the player.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Hanyuu from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has a pair of horns, one of which is slightly chipped. [[spoiler:She's actually a subversion; before becoming a god, she was a human who just so happened to be born with horns, hinted to be because of a genetic defect. Her horns were the main reason she was chosen to be a sacrifice.]]
* Saya from ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' is a deconstruction, since she is [[spoiler:an EldritchAbomination. Her true form is never fully revealed, but it's implied to be the farthest thing from cute. The only reason the protagonist sees her as attractive is because of an extreme case of agnosia that causes him to see everything as hideous, and the only truly hideous thing in his life as beautiful.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* All the female cast (and males) from ''{{Monsterful}}''. Cute monster [[http://www.monsterful.com/chapter14page01.php girl]] [[http://www.monsterful.com/chapter06page10.php extras]] (both young and mature) are everywhere, and cute monster girl [[http://www.monsterful.com/chapter08page17.php celebrity]] parodies!
* Grace Sciuridae/Shade Tail in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetically engineered]] [[ShapeShifter shapeshifting]] assassin created to fight the BigBad Damien. However, she proves to be a pacifist by nature [[UnstoppableRage except under the worst provocation]]. (Her brothers are less human-looking in their hybrid forms, though they can appear human, and quite good-looking, when they choose.) Her male EvilCounterpart from another dimension is much scarier.
* The unnamed gorgon protagonist in ''ModestMedusa'' seems to be [[GorgeousGorgon a cute and fairly harmless child]], without the ability to turn people to stone or the aggression normally associated with the medusa/gorgon type of monster. Instead she's easily distracted and seems to enjoy video games and junk food.
* ''TheWotch'' has Ti'el, a cute green-haired alien with tentacle hands, and Myrrh, Lord Sykos' half-liquid maid. Due to the ShapeShifting that goes on, many characters have been a Cute Monster Girl at least once or twice.
* The demon heroine Raven in ''[[http://faith.rydia.net/ Demonology 101]]'' is a cute teenage girl whose only demonic attributes are reddish eyes and [[UnusualEars oddly shaped ears]] (justified since Raven is [[spoiler:only a half-demon]]). The other demons portrayed (both male and female) are also fairly human-looking (and usually somewhat attractive).
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has Therkla, a half-orc ninja. While the males of the orcs we see aren't exactly any more ugly, mishappen, or inhuman than the females, this could be a limitation of the art style...
** Subverted and parodied in with a female Lizardfolk prostitute. At first she appears to look much more human than a typical member of her species, with blonde hair and NonMammalMammaries. But it turns out these are a wig and implants, which she got to attract more business. Without them she'd look just like a standard Lizardfolk. (And the other lizardfolk hooker is disgusted by her.)
* Several female characters from ''Webcomic/{{Krakow}}''.
* ''NerfNow'' has [[http://nerfnow.com/comic/27 Cute Zerg Girls]]. As in, ''the Zerg from {{Starcraft}}''. The author of the strip has a tendency to pump out cute monster girls on a weekly basis.
* ''{{Goblins}}'' has Saves-a-Fox (admittedly she wears a ''wig'', but still...) and [[SnakePeople yuan-ti]] girl Kin.
** Female Goblins are drawn sexier than their male counterparts in several panels, especially when the male leads are fantasizing.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' parodies this in the Years of Yarncraft storyline, especially in [[http://sluggy.com/daily.php?date=080813 this strip]].
** Aylee adopts her forms to defend against specific dangers (such as developing mind-shielding with a telepathic foe around). The current form was taken because she feared what humans would do unless she could fit in among them better. In other words, she (subconsciously) made herself into a Cute Monster Girl to gain acceptance.
* [[DiscussedTrope Mentioned occasionally]] in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''.
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20040916.html "You 'member dem comics where da alien girls were all pretty an' stuff?" "Comic book artists don' get out much, I don' think."]]
** [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20080325.html "Are there aliens in the company? Are any of 'em... you know... hot?"]]
** [[http://schlockmercenary.wikispaces.com/Corporal+Elizabeth Elizabeth]] is 3-meter 820-kilogram gorilla-like alien. Definitely not "cute". Yet the cover story that a kidnapped rent-a-cop [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2006-03-30 fell in love with her and took a sudden vacation was not questioned by anybody]].
* Molly in ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' is an extremely cute pink furry monster. Princess Voluptua still manages to be pretty attractive even in her insect form, as well.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' got a few: [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050606 traveling]] jager-kin [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070326 Jenka]]. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080125 Ferretina the Evil Weasel Queen]] from the [[{{Omake}} side-story]] "Revenge of the Weasel Queen". Also [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080425 Mamma Gkika]]; "cute" and "girl" definitely aren't the words for her, but she fits all the same. Nobody's really sure what the Geisterdamen are, other than creepy, but they're also [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20051207 kinda hot.]]
** Maxim and Oggie fall under the heading of Cute Monster ''Boys''.
** [=DuPree=], for a [[FauxAffablyEvil certain]] value of "monster" -- at least, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090126 monstrous enough for Grantz]].
* ''ComicBook/BuckGodotZapGunForHire'' has [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20080821 Hyraxx D'mofiti]] as well as some of the girls employed at the [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/buckcomic.php?date=20071201 Velvet Fist]].
* The Creo in ''{{Terinu}}'' start out as petite and cute when they're young, but upon reaching adulthood they gain the same bulky musculature as a male. Ferin does and bucks, on the other hand, retain disturbingly small and cute their entire lives, even as they sported spiky horns and tails.
* Nitrine of ''FlakyPastry'' is a small, cute human-looking young woman with green hair and lips. She is also a goblin and has had some rather classical male goblins hanging around.
* Soraya from ''{{Poharex}}'' combines this with LizardFolk.
* All orcs in ''DominicDeegan'' look close enough to humans to be mutually attractive once you get past the CuteLittleFangs (played straight with Luna, who is fully human and has fangs) and, yes, the green skin. This applies to both male and female orcs, however, so it's partly justified.
* All of the main characters in ''SchoolBites'' are cute vampire girls, some going into the catgirl variety.
* Ambrosia Verdandi from ''Webcomic/FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts''. She's also a doctor wannabe!
* ''KeychainOfCreation'' has both Marena (Lunar {{Exalted}}, 'foxy', and arguably the MsFanservice of the strip) and Secret (''Abyssal'' Exalted and thus effectively a kind of undead, but undeniably cute). And if a GeniusDitz robotic mad scientist who [[spoiler:can turn into a giant robot cat]] is more your thing, there's always Elegant Nova of Progression.
* ''EerieCuties'' has this title for a reason. The comic centers on a [[AllGhoulsSchool monster highschool]], and so far, with the exception of a pair of lizard boys, they are all cute monster girls (and boys). And if the cast isn't enough, there are more of them in flashbacks -- [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/double_pepperoni_with_sausage hilariously cute snake-girls]] and so on.
* The [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' fame have grey skin, orange, sunken eyes, fangs of varying length and horns of varying shape. Apart from that, they don't really look that monstrous. [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004055 Nepeta]], for example, is adorable, [[BadassAdorable even if she does kill wild animals for food with her bare hands]]. And paint the walls of her cave with their blood.
** The male trolls are all mostly Cute Monster Guys, too. Except maybe Equius.
** Jade Harley was spliced with a godlike dog, but the doggy features are cosmetic accessories to her big-eyed Moe face, and her plain long hair became a wavy mane.
** Before meeting any trolls, Jake English was shown to have a particular attraction to films featuring blue skinned monster girls. That it's a world secretly ruled by one would explain why there are so many more movies with them.
* Most of the [[LizardFolk coatlaltec]] girls from Webcomic/RestauranteMacoatl fit this trope, the only trace of them being reptiles are their tails and claws.
* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' has Baby Blue and Fuchsia. They're Devil Girls (presumably succubi), so there's [[HornyDevils some]] [[EvilIsSexy justification]] for this. Also, [[{{Satan}} their boss]] is depicted as pretty handsome.
* The title character of ''{{Selkie}}'' has gray skin, flippers, and fangs. [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} No horns though]].
* Hala River from ''[[http://subcultura.es/webcomic/elis/1 Irregular Elis]]'' is an alien.
* ''WhatsShakin'' has a few, most notably an undead lady Ell and an orc girl Pai.
* In ''{{Shadowgirls}}'', [[spoiler:Christmas Snow]]'s mother is a female [[CthulhuMythos Deep One]], but not ''nearly'' as grotesque as one of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft's]] originals. This lends a bit of plausibility to the strip showing that she and her human partner conceived [[spoiler:her]] out of mutual love and attraction.
* ''{{Spinnerette}}'' gives us Minerva, a {{Stripperiffic}} [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic]] Cerberus whose three heads offer something for [[FurryFandom everyone into anthros]], whether they like their girls sweet, spicy, or {{tsundere}}. There's also [[CatGirl Katt o'Nine Tails]] (though she's much more sleder than curvy, and her usual outfit is about as far from stripperiffic as you can get) and [[EvilCounterpart Evil Spinnerette]], who started out human but used a ritual to turn herself into a drider.
* Xan from ''Webcomic/WintersInLavelle'' is a male example of this. Half-deer, part of a species infamous for hating humans and being rather violent, but '''damn''', if he isn't adorable. And despite his usually [[{{Tsundere}} less than kind demeanour]], his occasional sweet moments (almost always with [[HeterosexualLifePartners Rio]]) only serve to emphasise that.
* The Deer Woman (based on Native American mythos) at the begining of ParanormalMysterySquad was kinda cute if you don't notice that her long skirt concealed deer legs. To bad she had already murdered 7 men before being made a [[OffWithHerHead foot shorter]].
** Once Katie is changed, she is a cute litte [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] after her bite.
* Benn'Joon of ''Looking for Group''. What ''exactly'' Benny's race is is unclear to the point that Richard describes her as "miscellaneous," although she has been on a couple occasions been identified as a troll (whose males, for the record, are green-skinned and generally ugly) and has been regularly called a half-breed. [[spoiler: Recently it has been heavily implied that her mother is the quite attractive Elven pirate Captain Tah'Vraay, so Benny appears to be at least part Elf. It's very probable, then, that Benny's good looks come from mom.]]
* Yuan-Tiffany in ''RustyAndCo''
* 565-14 in ''Webcomic/AllenTheAlien'' is a cute young alien girl, but she is too young to be a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe.
* Snapdragon Fahrenheit, along with a number of other students (including a gorgon, a succubus and a Jotun) at the Doc Mars Academy, from ''Webcomic/HowToRaiseYourTeenageDragon'' all fall well within this trope.
* One of the primary facets in the [[MadScientist mad science]] comedy ''Webcomic/TheHorrifyingExperimentsOfDrPleasant''. But as the "Schneidecker-Loli" principle clearly states, young females are the easiest to revive.
* ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' is about {{Eldritch Abomination}}s forming an UnwantedHarem around the protagonist, David. All of them take the form of beautiful women or {{Cute Monster Girl}}s. Notably, the [[http://mr-author.deviantart.com/art/Shoggoff-Tiem-175789921 shoggoth]] manages to look cute even when in its favoured form of a girl with [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20101126.html snake-ish mouths for arms]]!

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The base principle behind this trope, that of the sexy, exotic-looking humanoid, is likely the main explanation of the popularity of [[{{Yiff}} furry porn]] amongst the FurryFandom.
* The flash cartoon series ''Primal War'' is notorious/loved by teenage boys for its cartoony, monstrous males being drastically different to their more human-like and realistically proportioned females for both the beast and dino races.
* ''TheSpiderCliffMysteries'': Crystal (demon) and Annabelle (zombie).
* ''{{Felarya}}''. The world is essentially based on this trope. Almost all major characters are Cute Monster Girls - sweet, innocent, [[IAmAHumanitarian and with an appetite for gulping down humans whole and alive]]. Felaryan Cute Monster Girls range from [[SnakePeople nagas]] (giant snake-human hybrids) to {{drider}}s (giant spider-human hybrids), [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]], slug girls, and adorable carnivorous fairies. Who, naturally, are often [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever really, really big]] and [[EverythingTryingToKillYou all trying to eat you]]. Giant ''males'' are presumed to exist, but are rarely seen. Some species are {{One Gender Race}}s.
* Three Words: ''TheMonsterGirlEncyclopedia''. It's a field guide to a world where all the monster races (comprising virtually all the popular monster species in global fiction) have been reduced to {{One Gender Race}}s of, you guessed it, nubile nymphomaniacs who prey on human males/convert human females, to the point where actual extinction of the human race is now feared.
* Another much-smaller attempt at an [[http://girlsmon.blogspot.com/2009/04/monsters.html?zx=294b0e39c5feff97Monster-Girl Encyclopedia]] from apparently the same artist as the ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' series.
* The art gallery of [[http://andersson.elfwood.com/ Fredrik K T Andersson]] has plenty of cute and/or sexy monster girls.
* The [[http://www.neomonsterisland.com/daikaijuacadamy/gallery.html Kaiju Girls]], a sub-"series" of TwistedKaijuTheater mostly consisting of female anthropomorphised kaiju of varying degrees of Safe-For-Work-ness (mostly Not).
* The waiter-zombie users play as in the iTunes app ''Zombies A La Mode'' is a cross between a rare cute monster ''guy'' and UglyCute.
* [[http://utau.wikia.com/wiki/Teto_Kasane Teto Kasane]] the [=UTAUloid=] is a chimera with the appearance of a human girl with bat wings, and is often depicted with CuteLittleFangs depending on the artist. Depictions showing her wings are exceedingly rare, making this somewhat of an InformedAttribute.
* One Japanese adult anime artist drew a series called ''LivingWithMonsterGirls''--risque but cute comics featuring the relationships between the identical octoplet human brothers and their monstrous girlfriends, with startling tenderness - a slime-girl, a spider-girl, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dullahan a ghostly knight girl]], a centaur, a minotaur/cow-girl, a mermaid, a snake-girl, and a harpy. (''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' by the same artist could be considered the BleachedUnderpants version reworked as a harem story).
** These are called the [[http://kirara--noyume.blogspot.com/2009/04/happy-aprils-fool-3.html "My Life With X-chan"]] i.e. English: " Living with Monster Girls (Slime-chan, spider-chan, harpy-chan, etc)" series. They were posted anonymously to the [[http://monster-girl.homelinux.net Cute Monster Girl fansite]] ('''NotSafeForWork'''). The [[http://www.pixiv.net/index.php?id=267014 artist]] has mentioned that he is planning on doing 8 of them (for the 8 reoccurring characters on the site and its forums), but recent additions to the lineup of regulars may affect this. Possible future updates include kappa-chan (a water-demoness), invisi-chan (an invisible girl wearing a theater mask, blond wig, and gloves), {{drider}}-chan (drow/spider "centaur").
* There's a short (6-pages or so) hentai work in which the "Cute" Monster Girl's lower half was that of... ''something'' resembling a barnacle(?). She has tentacles and crab claws coming from under her skirt. The same artist (Dowman Sayman) did a manga called Toge Toge, in which the girl has enormous clawed hands and finds a sick teenage boy passed out one day in her neck of the sewer. Things go well until, [[DownerEnding well]]...
* While there's no images of her on the website, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-811 SCP-811]] of the ''SCPFoundation'' gives of the feel of this trope due to her simplistic third-person manner of speech and her child-like cheerfulness when she learns new things. It probably also helps that she [[spoiler:[[WasOnceAMan used to be a human being]]]].
* The ghost girl from BamanPiderman.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has [[BadassPrincess Princess Bubblegum]] (a candy person [[MeaningfulName made of gum]]), [[CuteAndPsycho Flame Princess]] ([[MeaningfulName a fire elemental]]), and [[VampireMonarch Marceline]] (the shapeshifting vampiric offspring of a HumanoidAbomination). However they are the only ones, with all other female characters and creatures being varying flavours of weird; Lumpy Space Princess, for example, is basically a sapient cloud.
** In the GenderFlip episodes, Ice Queen is very much less repulsive than the Ice King. Most likely this is due to her being [[spoiler:Ice King's [[SelfInsertFic self insert]].]]
* All of the female ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' shown in the original TV series are sexy winged humanoids, except for Una, who resembles an anthropomorphic unicorn and is thus still "cute", while male gargoyles have many other types. However, the comic continuation eventually introduced Constance (Coco), a heavy-set female who resembles a wild sow, and Brooklyn's mate at the end of his Timedance, Katana, has a face that includes a beautiful beak.
** In "The Mirror", when Puck ([[HeyItsThatVoice Brent Spiner]]) turned Elisa into a gargoyle, Elisa qualified for this -- though [[InterspeciesRomance Goliath considered her more beautiful as a human]].
* In the ''DuckDodgers'' series we meet other members of Marvin the Martian's species for the first time. Seems that while the males are short and cartoony the females, particularly Queen Tyr'ahnee are, well, [[http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs40/f/2009/010/5/0/Martian_Queen_by_SFToon.png this]]. Then again, the male Martian General Z9 is tall and well-built, so it's possible that Marvin is just a midget among his people.
** One episode had the hero crash-land onto a planet made up of attractive bug-like women... until the sun goes down.
* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' depicts Mr Mxyzptlk as a short, bald, almost baby-like figure with a distinct slouch whereas his female "friend" (as he spends most of his time ignoring her, it's hard to say what their relationship is exactly), Ms Gsptlsnz is a normal-sized, or even tall, very curvy redhead with a penchant for 1950s-style clothes. Given that the residents of the 5th dimension can choose whatever appearance they want, this is almost certainly deliberate.
* Both averted and played straight in ''{{Transformers}}'' and its infinite spin-offs. The earliest female robots were indeed curvy and sexy, but more diverse female Transformer designs have been introduced, whether they were original characters, or new characters based on previously-male toys. However, "sexy" female Transformers are still the primary type.
** Dialogue, in the original series and ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', imply that sexual dimorphism is common amongst Cybertronians, Black Arachnia, Arcee and [[BoobsOfSteel Thunderblast]] being a perfect example. Rat-Trap even [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar mentions female stripper-bots]] with [[BreastExpansion "enhanced chest-plates"]] or some such. The fact they even ''have'' strippers, to say nothing of cosmetic surgery, implies that our notions of gender roles are the same despite them being alien robots.
** For a particular aversion [[http://www.tfwiki.net/wiki/Strika_%28Animated%29 Strika]]. ''Yes'', she is a girl.
*** An [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Strika_%28BM%29 earlier version of the character]] was even less feminine, and there was NO indication she was female when she first showed up; she pretended to have a beast-like mentality, only yelling wordlessly if she ever made any noise. When she spoke for the first time, well, huge surprise. Her earlier incarnation (a retcon naming an unnamed G1 Autobot as her) wasn't particularly shapely either, unless you count "box" as a shape.
** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' Has [[spoiler:Sari]], though she's less a 'monster' than a [[spoiler:half-Autobot]]
* Kitten in the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' episode "Date with Destiny" looks like a cute, normal human girl. Her father, Killer Moth, appears to be some kind of moth man and her boyfriend, Fang, is a guy with a GiantSpider for a head (not a spider head, a spider). It turns out that Killer Moth is actually a regular guy in a costume, but despite the metallic voice and non-moving mouth you might not realize that just by watching the episode.
** Among the main characters there's DarkMagicalGirl Raven, the daughter of an EldritchAbomination PhysicalGod and a human (well, Azarathian anyway) woman. Most of the time, she looks like a cute human girl, save for her pale skin and purple eyes and hair (and in their {{animesque}} world, it's hard to say [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair just how unusual even some of those traits are]]). The [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry angrier she gets]], though, the more her father's monstrous traits start showing: when she has four glowing red eyes, an elongated body, and is spewing Lovecraftian amounts of darkness tendrils from her cloak, it's time to start running. Fast!
-->'''Dr. Light''': It was so... so... dark... Make it stop... Make it stop...
** Beast Boy covers Cute Monster Boy, with his green skin, pointed ears, and CuteLittleFangs.
** In spite of Starfire's obvious beauty, Ms. Alien Eye-Candy still a [[SuperStrength superstrong]] alien monster with orange skin who [[FrickinLaserBeams shoots lasers]]. A really beautiful alien monster, but alien monster nonetheless. This is actually brought up whenever she decides to eat (her race eat giant insects and squids and have teeth filed down to points) or hug someone (accompanied by breaking-bone sounds).
* Leela from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', a beautiful one-eyed woman descended from a race inflicted with all kinds of BodyHorror, is a particularly justified example: [[spoiler:her parents and people are formerly human, subterranean {{mutants}} and the fact that she happened to be born looking almost human is why they were able to pass her off as a HumanAlien and send her to the surface world for a better life than they could give her.]] Averted with plenty of underground female mutants though. Such deformities include slimy green skin, vertical mouths, extra arms and tentacles.
* Saffi from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. One eye, orange skin, HartmanHips, and a good fan following. A few background characters qualify as well.
** Heloise may also count, given her AmbiguouslyHuman status.
* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' has Breach, a pale, four-armed (with the top set of arms being abnormally huge) schoolgirl.
** A later episode introduced Cricket, a girl who's still pretty cute despite being green and having spines on her arms. [[spoiler:Later episodes reduce the amount of spines, make her figure fuller, and give her a cuter face.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MartinMystery'' has Diana becoming a half-lizard girl in the second part of the third season finale. The eponymous character even jokingly compliments that she's only a mini-mutant because her eyes changed and she has a tail.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Wasp becomes one when she's mutated by Gamma Radiation.
* [[spoiler:Lena Dupree]] from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' is an... interesting variation. She's certainly [[{{Moe}} cute]], and she's certainly a monster, but her monster form itself? NOT. CUTE. They transform twice. The first form is just their normal human forms only with cat ears, teeth, eyes, claws and some fur. Then they transform into horrific monsters. The female zombies from the film are decidedly not cute as well.
** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheAlienInvaders has [[spoiler:the cute native girl Shaggy had the hots for''(!)'' -and who seemed to share his feelings'''''(!!)'''''- who was a real (benevolent) alien; she looked somewhat like a metallic-skinned [[TheGreys Grey alien]], but with an attractive human bodyshape and expressive facial features.]]
** The girls from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool''. They're all the daughters of famous monsters, Sibella for example is Dracula's daughter.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}'' is guilty of this one. Gumby has roughly the same slab-shaped body as his father, but his mother has a round head with blonde hair on a body that has breasts. [[PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales And she wears clothes]]. She's not cute by the standards of most entries on this page, but she's far more human-shaped than the rest of her family.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' the group get sucked into Harvey's comic book world and Sabrina becomes Calamari Queen, who is half girl, half squid and pretty darn cute. She also appears to have been aged a few years judging by her chest area (the comic was drawn by a thirteen-year-old boy after all).
** Grimadonna the vampire superstar from the Netherworld. A sexy humanoid woman just with purple hair, pointy ears, blue skin and fangs.
* Iris from ''RubyGloom''.
* Miss Martian, from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', is a literal GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. [[spoiler: Only it turns out she's not; in an aversion, she's merely using her VoluntaryShapeshifting powers to pretend to be one, because her true form is not only ghastly-looking by human standards, it belongs to an oppressed minority race among her own species.]]
* Plenty of the girls from ''LloydInSpace''. AlphaBitch Brittany has blue skin and six arms but is still pretty cute. {{Dandere}} Violet simply has yellow skin and pink hair. Cindy may have two heads but one of them is very pretty and her body is also quite nice. Lloyd's mother Nora pretty much qualifies for GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. And one episode has Eddie (the Token Human) falling for a girl who is half-Zebra at the end. Averted with other girls such as Genevieve, Megan, Grace, Charmaine and Mrs Bolts (who is a '''robot''') who have much more alien appearances.
* Arguably Queen Chrysalis from MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. Most changelings shown look like fanged bald bug versions of ponies with holes in their legs and fins for manes, but the changeling Queen could pass for a gothic supermodel... by pony standards, anyway.
* Attea from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''. In her first appearance back in [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]] she was an adorable looking (if bratty and insane) frog girl. Then she popped back up in Omniverse looking like [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130306104402/ben10/images/9/9e/Attea_OV.png this.]]
* Teryx on ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'' is an evolved ''Archaeopteryx'' and beautiful in her own way, so much that several members of her species (even the BigBad of the show) are attracted to her. In one episode it is revealed that she was an actress in a soap opera on her home planet before joining the hero team, and had ''hordes'' of admirers.
