->''"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. I.E. 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 a 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]].

A function of MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial, specifically the idea that male monsters can look however they want, but female monsters need things to differentiate them from the male monsters ''and'' make them recognizably female to the audience. When the MaleGaze gets involved this results in common design features for female characters in other contexts, like HartmanHips, NonMammalMammaries, [[LongHairIsFeminine long hair]], and TertiarySexualCharacteristics like dresses or make-up (or bits of anatomy designed to look like a dress or make-up), even if it would make no sense for such a creature to have these features. While this is often done for purposes of {{Fanservice}} it can also be for WhatMeasureIsANonHuman reasons, as the audience is more likely to sympathise with a Monster Girl who looks more human than one who looks more monstrous. Conversely it can be done for GrotesqueCute reasons, contrasting the monstrous and cute side, especially if they still ''act'' like the monster they're based on -- villainous [=CMGs=] in particular are very likely to be {{Literal Man Eater}}s.

Female {{One Gender Race}}s are typically these. [[AlwaysFemale Very]] [[MostWritersAreMale rarely]], you will get a Cute Monster ''Guy'', although this is much more common with [[VampiresAreSexGods vampires]]. However, younger variants more of the traditional definition of "cute" (I.e. Children) for both genders are a bit more common. Assume that if there is a MonsterMash, the few female member(s) will be Cute Monster Girls. May involve {{Stripperiffic}} designs.

This character type can also be used as a basis for studying discrimination, social differences and similar themes, since monster girls are pretty cute and different at the same time to attract a wide audience and detail [[FantasticRacism problems arising from differences]].

Subtrope of MonstrousHumanoid. Related to MoeAnthropomorphism and Gijinka in FanArt circles. Often subject to FantasticArousal. Compare [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Cute Alien Girl]], [[AdorableAbomination Cute Eldritch Abomination Girl]], [[HumanoidFemaleAnimal Cute Humanoid]] [[LittleBitBeastly Animal Girl]], CuteGhostGirl, AttractiveZombie, SeductiveMummy, and SlimeGirl. Related to YouSexyBeast, although males are the more common recipient of that. Also related is GiantWoman, since the majority of giantesses are portrayed as sexually attractive.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Borders on crossing over into the DANGER ZONE but [[http://cartoons3.free.fr/Monsite/Images/BagiTheMonsterOfMightyNature.jpg Bagi]] of ''Anime/BagiTheMonsterOfMightyNature''. Though as the movie progresses she begins to regress towards her half-animal side and eventually loses speech and coherent thought by the end.
* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' there is the merrow. These are AlwaysFemale [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]], which have a human upper body and a fishy lower body. They can, however, assume a human shape, and go ashore. In their human form they look almost like humans, but have light blue hair. Some of them have [[InterspeciesRomance love relationships]] with humans, and can have common descendants with them.
** The [[HalfHumanHybrid half-merrow]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Isma]] was born this way. And she also qualifies for this trope.
** Rosine ''may'' count, as she retains her cuteness as an [[LegionsOfHell Apostle]], however her nudity along with her insect features and sexual overtone makes her very {{Squick}} and unconformable (thanks to her age). When Rosine is serious or damaged she subverts this trope by becoming [[https://i.imgur.com/2hsk2Li.jpg hideous]].
* In ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', Rin is a [[GenderInvertedTrope Cute Monster Guy]]. CuteLittleFangs, PointyEars, fluffy tail, and all. He just also happens to be the resident AntiAntiChrist.
* The female warriors in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' correspond to. They look like ordinary young women, however, they have silver eyes and light blond to white hair. Some of them also have pointed ears like elves.
** But the beauty only refers to them as long as they wear clothes. Since they are a Yoma half, their bodies to seem terrible look when someone sees them naked.
* The ''Culdcept'' manga has a few including [[OurElvesAreBetter elves]], [[PlantPerson dryads]], [[WingedHumanoid harpies]], and a HumanoidAbomination octopus-girl.
* Almost the entire female cast of ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', which features a Lamia, a centaur, a harpy, a slime, a mermaid, an arachne, a dullahan, and those are just the main seven. 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. Miia 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.
* ''Anime/DeltoraQuest'' given the fantasy setting and and Emily Rodda's characters being re-imagined by Japan, this trope was bound to happen.
** [[HotWitch Sorceress Thaegan]] is an absolute stunner and not remotely human, in the manga she's extremely [[AbsoluteCleavage busty]]. Unlike some the grievous changes the anime/manga made to books, Thaegan being attractive is accurate to the books according to her physical description in the ''Lake Of Tears''. However this subverted, as Thaegan is a huge VainSorceress and is actually a old hag without her magic, then but it's subverted again in the anime since in the spirit world (after she dies) she appears as youthful and beautiful.
** The Dread [[OurGnomesAreWeirder Gnomes]] are not described as attractive in any conventional sense of the word in the books, but the anime turns female Gnome [[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/deltora/images/b/b4/Gla-Thon_%28anime%29.png/revision/latest?cb=20150111080153 Gla-Thorn]] into a cutie.
** [[spoiler: Fangirls were able to look past Dain's monstrous and demonic appearance (upon his revealing himself a [[Voluntary ShapeshiftingOl) and still squeal over him. Despite Dain being a heavy case of EvilMakesYouUgly before Lief kills him]].
* ''VisualNovel/{{Demonbane}}'' takes this to the logical extreme: we have several examples of [[TomeOfEldritchLore Grimoires]] that take the form of young teenaged girls, rather than books. Apparently this is because these particular Grimoires have so much magic power in them that they have developed a soul, and take a form more appropriate for an ensouled being. Why all of them are female is not addressed, although in the sequel we meet a male [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human, half-grimoire]].
* Chomesuke from ''Manga/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 ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' sort of way.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'':
** The Wind warriors from ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' - 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".
** Angewomon, [=LadyDevimon=], Lilymon and Rosemon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''. The [[BishonenLine Bishoujo Line]] means most female Digimon are gonna end up like this at some point.
** 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'''.
* Chocola, the vampire daughter of ''Manga/DonDracula''. One episode has Don Dracula specify that her mother was the most beautiful woman he has ever known, and that Chocola takes after her.
* ''Anime/DragonBall''
** Goku brings a attractive mermaid to Roshi at one point and he creepily laments he can't have fun with her "lower half".
** In an anime-only episode when Goku travels to the demon world he meets a demon lady called Melee whose very attractive.
** Goku himself counts as a [[BadassAdorable kid]], his cuteness is dialed UpToEleven when he dances or plays with animals or his friends.
*** Baby Piccolo [[http://pm1.narvii.com/6467/0adf6098b4934367a4cf98cd63e616a88768fa1e_hq.jpg is kinda cute and gross]].
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' the female Saiyans are this, [[TheSquadette Fasha]] especially as unlike the [[AlternateUniverse universe 6]] fem-Saiyans Caulifla and Kale, Fasha still has her tail. The cave-dwelling [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/0/09/Saiyans_DBZ_Ep_20_001.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/350?cb=20170918021139 female Saiyan]] with knife in her mouth in a flashback to planet Tuffle also deserves a special mention.
** Demon women are nearly all babes in the ''Dragon Ball'' like the Snake Princess, her maids and especially Towa [[http://decerf-pro.be/DBO/Original/Original_01.png just look at her]].
** Zangya from 9th Dragon Ball Z movie is a literal GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe to date, Krillin stood no chance. No wonder Zangya was included in subsequent video games.
** Female Buus unlike their male counterparts have voluptuous builds and way cuter than the fat male-Buu, they're so attractive they give the female Saiyans a run for their money and males in game express their attraction towards them. [[https://img.fireden.net/vg/image/1477/84/1477846223676.jpg Taino]] and [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/9/9c/MissBoo%28DBO%29.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130901085335 Miss Buu]] are definitely stands outs.
** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' introduces heaps, firstly the female angel Vados and her sisters Marcarita and Cus. But not their other sister Martinu though.
*** From universe 2, Sanka Ku (in her [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kakunsa.png beast warrior form]]) and [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/4/47/Vikal_Profile.png/revision/latest?cb=20170810223601 Vikal]] who despite looking less human than other female colleagues is ironically sexier.
*** From universe 4 [[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/5/5d/Caway.png/revision/latest?cb=20170827193217&path-prefix=pt-br Caway]] and to a lesser extent [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/darkori.png Darkori]]. [[https://i.imgur.com/RsqjFgB.png Monna]] is quite cute as well despite her roundness.
*** From universe 9, [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/dragonball/images/6/6e/HopSorrel.png/revision/latest?cb=20170710164534 the cat girl Hop and rabbit girl Sorrel]].
*** From universe 10, [[https://www.db-z.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/u10_lilibeu.jpg Lilibeu]] the butterfly-girl is a cutie.
*** [[https://scontent-sea1-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/c184.0.480.480/20482159_805566976290547_4661005140772257792_n.jpg?ig_cache_key=MTU3MDIzNTA5MDg3NjU3MDI0MA%3D%3D.2.c Cocotte]] from universe 11, the only female in the team is of course attractive.
* Mink from ''Manga/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.
* Celty from ''{{LightNovel/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.]]
* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': [[HornedHumanoid Diclonii]]'s horns resemble cute cat ears.
* 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.
* The dragon sylphid from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' [[VoluntaryShapeshifting can change her shape]]. When the dragon does (it is a female dragon), she looks like an ordinary girl with blue hair.
* ''Manga/FrankenFran'':
** Fran Madaraki 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]].
** Her similarly [[FrankensteinsMonster stitched up]] sisters Gavrill and Veronica can be pretty damn cute (that is, when they're not being ''[[NightmareFuel fucking]] [[AxCrazy terrifying]]'') as can [[spoiler:officer Kuhou]] after she was transformed into a monster girl.
* [[spoiler:Miiru]] from the second volume of ''Manga/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.
* Neko Musume in ''Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro'' was originally an aversion... until one of her more recent redesigns.
* 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.
* This is the point of the ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' series, with bonus DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu levels. All the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s appear in completely humanoid (and rather cute) forms, but the most diabetes-inducingly cute character ([[spoiler:Hastur]]) is a boy.
* Seras Victoria from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' is a vampire, but she looks normal except for her red eyes.
* Most of the girls in ''Manga/InterviewsWithMonsterGirls'' (except [[TokenHuman Himari]]) are these, termed demi-humans in the universe. However, unlike in most cases, they look more like human than LittleBitBeastly.
* The anime ''InuYasha'' also has a lot of them. All female half-demons and very many female demons in human-like figure look very sweet, although we recognize that they are not human.
** Also all the male half-demons (except Jinenji) and very many male demons in human-like shape seen bishounen.
* ''LightNovel/IsThisAZombie'': Virtually every female introduced, except Haruna, a MagicalGirl, and the [[ThoseTwoGirls two girls]] who are {{Muggle}}s.
* The animal people in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon?'' could qualify, but they're not actually considered monsters in universe. [[spoiler: However, the Xenos ([[ItCanThink sapient versions of otherwise unthinking monsters]]) are. A DraconicHumanoid with an unusually human appearance ends up becoming a part of Bell's harem... and by extension, gets Bell into a lot of hot water, as Xenos suffer from FantasticRacism thanks to the perception that they must be AlwaysChaoticEvil.]]
* Himemiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss,'' at least when she is in her human form. Her real form is a catfish demon.
%%* The title character of ''Manga/{{Karin}}'' (a.k.a, "Chibi Vampire")
* Niche from ''Manga/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]]...
* Though the Zentradi from ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' and ''Anime/{{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.
* ''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/DemonKingDaimao'' has the exact same four characters.
* ''Manga/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]]). And it appears [[spoiler:[[CuteMute Zazie]]]] is actually a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent mazoku]].
* 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.
* All of the female dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' apply to a certain degree when they take on human or partially human forms. It's mentioned in-universe that this isn't a racial trait, they're all good looking by dragon standards as well.
* Justified in ''Manga/MononokeSharing''. Mizuchi explains to Yata that all yokai resemble humans in an attempt to blend in. Those that don't have long since died out.
* 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.)
* In ''MonsterRancher'' is also true, to some monsters. Pixie (later Granity), Lilim and Poison. They look like girls but horns, pointy ears and wings have like a bat. In addition, they are also clothed rather sparse.
* ''Manga/MonsterSoul'' has a few, with two of them being a mummy and a golem respectfully.
* ''Manga/MyBalls'' is all about cute monster girls.
* All of the female mermaids in ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid''. The males tend to be less "cute" and more "[[TestosteronePoisoning Manly]]". Except [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Masa]].
* 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]]. Technically, [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination Rei and Kaworu]]]] might count, though the latter is a Cute Monster Boy instead.
* Yuki-Onna/Tsurara from ''Manga/NurarihyonNoMago'', as well as a majority of the other humanoid female youkai.
* The titular "oddmen" of ''Oddman 11'' have most of its members within variable points of the monster-girl spectrum. For instance, Inuta is a full-on [[PettingZooPeople dog furry girl]] (to the point of having six nipples), Ika-chan has several tentacles and a weird shaped head but otherwise regular female anatomy, while Kirara [[LittleBitBeastly only has cat ears and a tail]] and Tatari is a regular girl [[Main/{{Cyclops}} with a single eye]].
* Almost every member of the UnwantedHarem in ''Manga/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.
* ''Franchise/OnePiece'':
** The [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merpeople]]. 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.
** 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]]
** [[spoiler:Charlotte]] Praline is half mermaid half human and is rather easy on the eyes especially considering her mothers looks.
** Carrot is this too; cuter and nicer than most minks, but still as dangerous a beast (physically) as any of them.
* Mosquito Girl in ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' looks human except for her insect-like limbs and wings. Though she is somewhat creepy-looking in the original webcomic, she gets a dose of AdaptationalAttractiveness in the manga and anime where she gains a [[https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/onepunchman/images/d/dc/Mosquito_Girl_Color.png/revision/latest?cb=20150912211612 voluptuous build]].
* Scanty and Kneesocks, the demon sisters from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''.
* ''Petopeto San'' is entirely devoted to the concept of cute monster girls (some of which are [[HalfHumanHybrid half human]]).
* 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.
* ''Manga/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.
* ''Anime/RageOfBahamutGenesis'' has Amira. The young girl is a [[{{Nephilim}} hybrid of angel and demon]], and can [[VoluntaryShapeshifting change from her angelic form to her demonic form]]. In her angelic figure, she is very pretty and looks like an ordinary girl, except that her hair is pink and she has a fair skin. In her demonic form she looks much more frightening, but still qualifies for this tropus.
* ''Anime/RagnarokTheAnimation'':
** 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.
* Every single girl except for Kyoko (Tsukune's cute but human cousin) in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. They spend the most of their time hiding their monster traits, though, so they look completely human except during fights, and when transformed the main gals (and many of the supporting cast) are STILL cute (Moka is devastatingly so, Kurumu becomes ultra exotic, etc.).
* ''Manga/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.]]
%%* ''Manga/SankaRea'' has the eponymous zombie girl.
* 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).
* The eponymous character of ''Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume'' is an ''adorable'' squid-girl.
* A fair amount of the female cast of ''Manga/{{Sola}}''.
* 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.
* Holo from ''LightNovel/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.
* ''Manga/TodaysCerberus'' gives us humanoid versions of not just Cerberus but also Fenrir, Jormungand, and Orthrus.
%%* [[spoiler:Seth Nightroad]] from ''LightNovel/TrinityBlood''.
* Hazuki from ''Anime/TsukuyomiMoonPhase''. Anyone unfamiliar with the story and character would NEVER assume she's a monster! The opening theme doesn't help.
* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'':
** Lum 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]].
** 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.
* 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.]]
* 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.
* ''Anime/GhostSweeperMikami'' has main character Okinu, a CuteGhostGirl, as well as the recurring antagonist and {{Ridiculously Human Robot|s}} Maria. [[spoiler:Not to mention what Mikami herself is revealed as]]. The series also has a few one-shot characters like a {{youkai}} desk and a dragon martial-arts trainer.
* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' [=/=] '' Jitsu wa Watashi wa'' has a vampire, alien, "wolf-man", and other Cute Monster Girls hiding in plain sight at a high-school, as the principal is one herself. HilarityEnsues when an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent finds out when delivering a love letter.
* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'': All three of the shinigami females look human, until they assume [[TransformationSequence their true forms.]] Though they still [[LittleBitBeastly look mostly human]] afterward.
** Lisara: gains a small pair of bat wings that extend from the sides of her head and her irises change from red, to amber.
** Ilia's [[CuteLittleFangs fang]] enlarges slightly and a short gold and black horn grows from the center of her forehead.
** Quele's is the simplest transformation. She only grows a short pair of black horns on her head, which curve backward.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Most of the student body in ''ComicBook/AllGhoulsSchool''.
* Komodo from ''ComicBook/AvengersTheInitiative'' 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/FreaksSqueele'' has Chance, a nice spontaneous and [[CuteClumsyGirl somehow clumsy]] college girl ...Oh, and she has horns and bat wings.
* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' goes both ways; cute monster girls along with cute monster ''guys''.
* Gali, or Galacta, daughter of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. She appears to be an attractive human woman.
* Delphyne Gorgon is a [[GorgeousGorgon Cute Gorgon]] from ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules''. She even wears a skimpy Goth-styled schoolgirl uniform.
* 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. 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.
** Though, it gets occasionally subverted from time to time with She-Hulk [[StatusQuoIsGod (always temporarily)]] gaining an uglier, more monstrous form. One such occurrence was during ''ComicBook/AvengersDisassembled'' after she lost control of herself as a result of the Scarlet Witch's manipulations.
* ''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.
* 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.
* ComicBook/LadyDeath's villain {{ComicBook/Purgatori}} is a rather unique creature: a vampire distantly descended by [[FallenAngel fallen angels]]. She has a demonic appearance with crimson skin, horns and wing, but she still looks extremely gorgeous and tends to dress in {{Stripperiffic}} outfits.
* Creator/MarvelComics' Skrulls 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.
* 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]].
* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' features plenty, given that most residents in Résurrection are reincarnated monsters the most attractive people would qualify as this trope: Most female vampires tended to be very fanservicey despite their rather fearsome appearance due to battle tattoos applied to their bodies, [[CuteGhostGirl female lamias]] tend to be very attractive for tortured spirits and some [[CatGirl Leopard Women]] are shown as part of harems. The biggest one would be Queen Perfidia of the Dystopians, an arguable example since she is more scary-looking than gorgeous, though she has a far more human-like appearance than the rest of her race, who all look like humanoid dinosaurs.
* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' has Matthew Patel's demon hipster chicks.
* The ''Franchise/StarWars: Comicbook/{{Legacy}}'' comics have made almost a running gag of "prettying up" females of various alien races - [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Maladi Darth Maladi]] and [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kee_(smuggler) Kee]] are good examples, and 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). There's also a quite good-looking male Twi'lek (compared to the films, anyway) like Shado.
* ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' has many appearing throughout the series.
* ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'':
** Deliberately invoked with Miss Martian. Although she's genuinely female, as a White Martian, her true form is a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil ravenously carnivorous, xenophobic, insanely hostile]] creature considered an ugly monster even by Green Martians (who are pretty weird-looking themselves). 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, and crazy enough that she'd try to do so. However, in addition to sealing off her malevolent instincts behind a psychic block, she uses her VoluntaryShapeshifting power to appear as a more successful and feminine take on "[[ComicBook/MartianManhunter Uncle John's]]" human form. The result is a cute, perky, teenage GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe, in contrast to J'onn J'onzz's appearance as a rather craggy-featured bald-headed green-skinned body builder.
** Kid Devil is a SpearCounterpart case of this trope; he's a lean-yet-muscular teenage demon, with a handsome and very human-like face, looks mostly normal apart from the skin color, and [[WalkingShirtlessScene goes around shirtless most of the time]].
* ''{{ComicBook/Valhalla}}'': in one story, the [[Myth/NorseMythology jotun]] Tjasse bemoans the fact that his daughter Skade is so ugly that it is impossible to find a suitor for her. On the second page of his complaints, she turns around and we see her face, revealing that she may be ugly to a jotun but fairly good-looking to a god or human. Her usual countenance is still too severe for her to be called cute, until she is (literally) swept off her feet and has a silly, cute, enamoured grin take over her face.
* 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.
** ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}}, DependingOnTheArtist, can be a fuzzy pretty boy with CuteLittleFangs.
** ComicBook/{{Jubilee}} becomes this after becoming a vampire.
* Lots and lots of them in ''[[Creator/PhilFoglio XXXenophile]]''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* There's an [[MoeAnthropomorphism entire subgenre]] of global 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'' from Japan.
* 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.]]
* The ''VideoGame/{{Moemon}}'' GameMod 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 ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom there are cute monster ponies. There exist the same kinds of things found in the Monster Girl Encyclopedia like slimes and mermaids (seaponies), with [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/mothpony moth ponies]] and [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/bat+pony bat ponies]] being quite popular ([[StrangeMindsThinkAlike the latter became canon at around the same time the fans were making it up]]), and some ''truly'' strange creations like [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/tatzlpony tatzlponies]][[note]]A hybrid of a pony and that massive worm thing from "Three's A Crowd"[[/note]] and (take a breath) [[https://derpibooru.org/tags/oc-colon-cuddlhu a sentient hive-mind mass of tentacles that have infested a pony costume because they are lonely]].
* The [[http://pokedex.deviantart.com/ Pokemon Gijinka Project]], in the same vein as ''Moemon''.
* 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.
* 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.
* ''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.
* The Kaiju Girls of Daikaiju Academy, part of ''[[http://www.neomonsterisland.com/ Twisted Kaiju Theater]]''.
* In ''FanFic/TheBridge'', Irys the Hyper Gyaos gets a human-like form upon entering the Equestria Girls world; having pronounced fangs, extremely pale skin; and all of her old powers. The bubbly goofball Megalon's EG World form arguably is a gender inverted example. [[spoiler: Aria Blaze's Kaizer Ghidorah based SuperMode counts as well.]]
* Fans of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' have created the [[http://knowyourmeme.com/search?context=images&q=tags%3A%28%22monstar%22%29 "MonStar"]] AU, where a benevolent Toffee married Star's mother. Star mostly looks the same build wise, but also have a mouth full of razor sharp teeth (which turns into CuteLittleFangs when her mouth is closed), gray skin, a tail, her mother's hair color, and a much darker color palette on her clothes.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* Mavis Dracula in ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania'', a vampire girl with a pixie haircut and CuteLittleFangs.
* Eva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor}}'', even though she was made to look monstrous and be evil, she still has a very pretty look.
* Celia from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc''. ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' meanwhile splits this trope down the middle: Claire Wheeler and the MU sororities, especially Python Nu Kappa and Slugma Slugma Kappa sisters, do have their "cute side". Although, like the Eta Hiss Hiss sisters being split down in the middle (although they prove to be more "monstrous" than "cute" because they WANT it that way), PNK and EEK show their scary sides as determined in the Scare Games. Dean Hardscrabble herself does not exactly have a "cute" side, but she is considered to be quite beautiful despite her terrifying appearance. Female monsters in both films prove to be mostly a mix of both, despite completely differed from humans. Then again, EVERY monster girl introduced into the films is pretty gorgeous, just look at Brynn Larson and even Sonia Lewis.
* Ginormica from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''. Your basic white-haired girl, [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever super-economy size]].
* Sally the rag doll, from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' is very pretty despite being covered in stitches with blue skin with a GlasgowGrin.
* Fiona of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' is still fairly pretty for an ogress, despite indulging in the usual icky ogre habits.
* Creator/AngelinaJolie as Grendel's Mother in the 2007 film ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' (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.
* Emily, the ''Film/CorpseBride'', is quite fetching, considering she has been dead for a bit of time when she finally emerges following Victor's [[AccidentalProposal accidental proposal]]. Piss her off, though, and those same cute features can quickly turn to NightmareFuel.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The eponymous character in ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' certainly counts, being played by the gorgeous Elsa Lanchester. Although she only gets a few minutes of screen time, she's memorable enough to become one of the most famous Universal monsters.
* The ''Shadow over Innsmouth''-based BMovie ''Film/{{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.
* ''Film/DarkAngelTheAscent'': Even in her demonic form (pretty much what you'd expect: bat wings, claws, and horns), Veronica is rather cute.
* 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.
* The eponymous character of ''Film/DeadGirl'' is pretty good-looking... although probably not dating material, given everything that happens after she's found.
* [[http://gremlins.wikia.com/wiki/Greta Greta, the female gremlin]] from ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch''. 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.]]
* [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Marla]] (depending on how decayed she is in a particular scene) from ''Film/HellraiserDeader''.
* In ''Film/TheHowling'', the werewolves are giant, long-snouted and frightening, but when [[spoiler:Dee Wallace]] turns into one, it's cute and fluffy.
* 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 Music/DavidBowie [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment with make up on]] (and ''[[MrFanservice 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.
* In ''Film/LetTheRightOneIn'', [[UndeadChild Eli]] fits this trope, though it isn't clear whether she's a victim of her circumstances or deliberately exploiting it to get new [[TheRenfield Renfields]].
* 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]].
* ''Film/TheMummy2017'' has Ahmanet, who's very pretty...once she devours enough lifeforce, that is.
* ''Film/{{Penelope}}'': Penelope herself. Though she is cursed with the "face of a pig", she really just has a pig nose and easily hidden pig ears. Though there are a few characters who run in horror, she's actually quite cute, something that's unsurprising considering she's basically Creator/ChristinaRicci with a snout. A few characters even mention how mostly normal she looks. [[spoiler:In the end, it turns out that accepting herself as she is, pig nose and all, is the key to breaking the curse.]]
* A [[UncannyValley thoroughly creepy]] version of this trope arises in ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes2001''. 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 kisses her at the end!]]
* Zombie Julie in ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead3'' still looks pretty cute even after she impales most of her body with metal spikes and glass shards to stave off the pain of undeath.
* 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.
* Dren in ''Film/{{Splice}}''. The Fetish Fuel angle to her is played up to the hilt.
* ''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 [[GoGoEnslavement 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. Later 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 ''Legacy'' comics are good examples.
** 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).
* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': Gender-inverted; [[Characters/MCULoki Loki]] was abandoned by the Frost Giant king Laufey for being too small. When Odin found the crying and helpless infant, it resembled a blue human (or [[HumanAliens Asgardian]]) baby with raised lines on its skin. Although Odin had pragmatic reasons to adopt the offspring of an enemy (he had planned for Loki to become the next sovereign of Jötunheim), it's implied that he also took pity on the child, which was facilitated by the fact that Loki looked no less cute than any other Asgardian baby. As an adult, Loki becomes a male GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe whenever he's in the presence of Jötunn magic.
%%* Ruby from both the original ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes1977'' and [[Film/TheHillsHaveEyes2006 its remake]].
* ''Film/{{VHS}}'': While she's still undeniably creepy both in her human and bat/vampire/nymphomaniac thing form, Lily (from the "Amateur Night" segment) fits this trope.
* Garona of ''Film/WarCraft2016''. She's a literal GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe with small orc-like tusks, and fairly beautiful by human standards.
* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'': The scaly and blue-skinned Raven Darkholme as a little girl is absolutely adorable when Charles Xavier first meets her, and he treats her like a friend right away.

* SF&F artists and illustrators love the concept. This may reflect the contents of the books they illustrate [[CoversAlwaysLie or not]]. Examples include (some NSFW due to naked breasts):
** [[http://www.imaginistix.com/details.cfm?Id=345 Boris Vallejo]].
** [[http://andersson.elfwood.com/ Fredrik K T Andersson]].
** [[http://www.imaginistix.com/details.cfm?Id=1254 Julie Bell]].
** [[http://www.luisroyofantasy.com/en/gallery/img.php?id_album=21&id_img=2857 Luis Royo]].
** [[http://www.rowenaart.com/images/web.html Rowena Morrill]].
* Junapur, in ''Literature/{{Cerberon}}'', is described as quite beautiful despite her various nonhuman traits and imposing Amazon physique.
* Serendipity Sargasso, the siren secretary in the MonsterMash neo-noir ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' and [[Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble its sequel]] is pretty darn cute. Assuming she doesn't smile.
* 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.
* 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]].
** Also Angua the blonde curvaceous werewolf girl.
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' most of the female inhuman monsters Harry encounters are extraordinarily beautiful but equally scary, and many of them have, literally, wanted to eat him. It's mentioned in ''Skin Games'' that this is why he and Binder are instinctively leery about Ascher's advances. [[spoiler:Ascher is Lasciel's new host at the time, making their caution completely justified.]]
* Most of the girls in Creator/SeananMcGuire's ''Literature/InCryptid'' novels.
* From the ''Literature/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.
* In Creator/CharlesStross's novel ''Literature/TheJenniferMorgue'', 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.
* ''Literature/MoreInformationThanYouRequire'' features a Cute Monster Girl mole-man as part of a BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy gag. [[spoiler: She's this universe's version of Sally Hemings.]]
* Robert Asprin's ''Literature/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]].
* ''Theatre/PeerGynt'' meets and falls in lust with a beautiful maiden who turns out to be the daughter of the troll king.
* ''Literature/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]].
* Franchise/HarryPotter
** Subverted with actual mermaids in Harry Potter who too fish-like for comfort, see OurMermaidsAreDifferent for more detail.
** The Veela are EnthrallingSiren(s) that so beautiful they can entrance both men [[DoubleStandard and]] women alike. But the real ''monster'' part of this trope comes, if you piss them off their faces elongate into sharp, cruel-beaked bird heads, and long scaly wings burst from their shoulders. Mr Wealsey tells his sons and Harry the Veela are why you shouldn't go for looks alone, Fleur Delacour's grandmother was a Veela which explains her stunning beauty ''and short temper''.
** Ghosts can beautiful in HP, e.g ''The Grey Lady'' [[spoiler: aka ‎Helena Ravenclaw]] but not in poor Moaning Myrtle's case.
** Apparently Wood-Nymphs exist in France so they count as this.
* 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.
* Asenath Waite from "Literature/TheThingOnTheDoorstep", 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 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. Female harpies get unusually ugly when they have to mate with humans and vultures to reproduce their species, and ''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.
* ''Literature/TheForsakenChildren'' has several monster girls in it, most notably Mary, the undine changeling (who's described as being both piscine and voluptuous).
* The female warlocks in ''TheMortalInstruments'' and ''TheDarkArtifices'' see very often like this. They warlocks look so like normal girls, just that they have physical characteristics that show their demonic relatives, as horns, hooves, wings, claws or tails.
** This also applies to the female fairies. Mostly they look like very beautiful humans, but they have very often pointed ears and an unusual color of the skin, hair and eyes.
*** Also worth noting is Helen Blackthorn, a half-fairy. She is described as pale, beautiful and delicate. She has white and gold painted, curled hair, blue-green eyes and pointed ears.
* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has several nymphs. They look like ordinary girls, but they have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair unusual haircuts]]. They are also described as exceptionally pretty.
** There's also the [[SnakePeople dracaenae]], the serpent women who, once you get past the snake tails in place of legs and the vertical pupils, are in fact very beautiful.
* The German booklet series ''Maddrax'' has the mendrites. They are [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrids]] of [[FishPeople hydrites]] and humans. And female mendrites also qualify for this trope. They look almost human, but also have some fish body parts.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Franchise/{{Buffyverse}}, Joss Whedon being Joss Whedon this trope happens more often in both [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] and [[Series/{{Angel}} Angel]]. Though to his credit, hideous monster girls are more common
** [[TheVamp Female Vampires]] count all this, with Darla, Drusillia, Willow ([[BadFuture Wishverse]]) and Harmony all being bombshells. Though the unpleasant [[GameFace Vampire face]] can objectively make them ButterFace(s), but sometimes even with the vamp-face they can still be attractive (particularly Darla in flashbacks).
** Werewolf girls as well, though naturally not in their wolf forms. Vecura the seductive werewolf in ''Buffy'' who lures Oz (good Werewolf) towards the feral path '''but''' Nina in ''Angel'' puts Vecura to shame being ridiculously beautiful, curvaceous and mostly importantly ''innocent''. Angel who usually dates humans or female vampires ironically had the safest relationship (sexually) with Nina despite his curse and her wolf-nature.
** Anya despite having a pretty hideous [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_lphfSKXdifI/TVLUaQiEs6I/AAAAAAAAAHw/8Fx59lCbXGM/s1600/thewish114.jpg demon-half]] is still gorgeous as human, Xander loved her deeply despite his bad experiences with female demon prior.
** The [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/buffy/images/8/82/Oracles2.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100520041002 female Oracle]] from Angel.
** The female Oden-Tal demons from Angel episode "''She''" give all the other demon babes a run for their money, the females can produce ''such heat'' from their bodies they can scorch a grown man till his flesh and eyes come off. The male Oden-Tals think of their opposite sex as nothing more than slaves and removing the raised ridges on their spine makes them docile. Also if they're aroused their spines will glow red from heat likely releasing pheromones, as Wesley was love-struck upon rescuing some scantly clad Oden-Tal much to Cordelia's ire and Angel had to go take a [[ADateWithRosiePalms "cold shower"]] after interacting with Jhiera the princess of the Oden-Tals.
** [[spoiler: Cordelia as a half-demon counts, even moreso she possessed by Jasmine who is EldritchAbomination]].
** Illyria from 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.
** The female half-demon Pearl (from the comics) also looks like this. She a little looks elvish. But still she is very vicious.
* 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. However, 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.]]
* ''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.
* ''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 Ahkna (though not nearly as short), and the "We're So Screwed" arc makes it 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.
* Franchise/DoctorWho
** [[HumanAliens Technically]] Female Timelords count as this, e.g Romana, Jenny, Missy and [[GenderBender now The Doctor]].
** Elrad from ''Hand of Fear''.
** Many examples in the more modern series often a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/tardis/images/4/4d/Jabe_s.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20101016162803 Jabe]] "the tree lady" from ''End of the World and [[https://cobolhacker3.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/raffalo.jpg Raffalo]] the blue skinned plumber lady from the same episode. The Raconoss queen... [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/74/a2/78/74a2780f260b660fca32d9955be888ac.jpg kinda]] not really. [[https://i.pinimg.com/736x/64/d3/b6/64d3b6d3883e734f4f6614d6de2be69f--professor-aliens.jpg Chantho ]] from season 3 of the new series despite her insect features, she's quite cute [[ExtremeOmnisexual Jack]] wasted no time flirting with her. [[https://i.pinimg.com/564x/df/4f/37/df4f378bfe4ae4c7658b9d2e85cc5e49--aliens-doctor.jpg Addams]] from the David Tennant season final.
** Catkind, the females can sorta be [[HumanoidFemaleAnimal considered]] this.
** ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' features a "[[HotterAndSexier sexy]]" half-transformed Cyberwoman, even though the Cybermen in Doctor Who whether constructed from men or women, look exactly the same.
** As of the Matt Smith era, the female Silurians are [[https://i1.wp.com/conexaoalien.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/maxresdefault.jpg?resize=836%2C470 this]]. Though they hide their features with more reptilian masks, when the Doctor takes the mask off first words out his mouth are [[{{Understatement}} "You're beautiful"]].
* In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'', the various Wesen races all have an [[GameFace alternative form]], called a ''woge''. Some, like Rosalie (a ''Fuchsbau'', or fox girl), fit this trope. Others, like the ''[[WickedWitch Hexenbiest]]'', [[BodyHorror don't.]]
* In ''Series/{{Lexx}}'', Zev Bellringer, part cluster lizard, part love slave.
* Marilyn Munster in ''Series/TheMunsters''. Unlike the other members of the family, she 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.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** Though most [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Borg]] of any 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. The retconned explanation for the more humanoid Klingons is that they were engineered to look like humans for easier interaction, so it'd be logical for the females to be attractive to humans.
* 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 [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith seen however the reaper chooses to be perceived]].
* A common trope with ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/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. Of ''Power Rangers'' series, every season has one except ''[[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo]]'', ''[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Mystic Force]]'', and every season after ''[[Series/PowerRangersRPM RPM]]'' - which all still have attractive female villainesses, just of the rubber suit variety. There are even a few [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] who might qualify, such as [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Icy Angel]], but they tended to be rare.
** [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Scorpina]]/[[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Lamia]] is an attractive young woman in gold armor normally, but when [[MakeMyMonsterGrow gigantified]] looks like a horrible, lizard-faced scorpion monster.
** [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Archerina]], wife of Prince Gasket, is a very pretty robot girl. She's also manipulative and uses her magic love arrows to turn her opponents on each other.
** [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Vypra]] looks like a beautiful woman in demonic armor more than a demon. She's also the only one to look mostly human out of her show's antagonists.
** [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Itassis]], the only female of the Ten Terrors, is a pretty, sphinx-like monster who ends up turning good and being one of the few to survive the series. Serpentina, a MonsterOfTheWeek, similarly has has some appealing features but in contrast is vile inside.
** [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Dayu]] looks like she might be quite the looker under that squid-like helmet. Unless it's actually her head.
** [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Levira]] has one of the less monstrous designs for her series. [[spoiler:She doesn't last, though.]] Similarly, Metal Alice is on the more human-like and alluring side. [[spoiler:She doesn't last, either.]]
** [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Poisandra]] ''thinks'' she is, but her cuteness is skin-deep. And less cute than she thinks, what with the zipper mouth and creepy mask on her heart.
* Played with in the famous "Eye of The Beholder" episode of ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959''. 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]].
* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'':
** Frankie Stein, who's a cute, if very tall, girl with a rubber forehead attachment.
** Alex and Harper when they're pretending to be werewolves in "Meet the Werewolves".
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Elia, the Wraith girl from the episode "[[Recap/StargateAtlantisS02E07Instinct Instinct]]". The unsettling appearance of the life-sucking bug-human hybrid girl can't hide Creator/JewelStaite underneath the facial prosthetics. Her caretaker originally decided to raise her as his daughter because he couldn't bring himself to kill her.
* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', Raina gains bright gold eyes, a beak-like nose, PointedEars and sharp thorns on ([[PainfulTransformation and inside]]) her body after undergoing [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Terrigenisis]]. She first perceives it as BodyHorror, but as she grows more confident, she begins to own her new look.

* For Finnish monster rock band Music/{{Lordi}}, their first pianist, Enary, was a blonde valkyrie who was still gorgeous despite having an extra mouth. They've since averted 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.)
* Teto Kasane from {{Vocalic}} is apparently a Chimera.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* In at least one source of Myth/ClassicalMythology (The Ovid), female [[OurCentaursAreDifferent centaurs]] are described as being quite comely, in contrast to their more brutish and single-minded men-folk.
* The Asura in Myth/HinduMythology and Buddhist myth: all the males are ugly and all the females are beautiful. And both are very violent.
* Myth/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.
* [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Mermaids]] can be this depending on which myth you follow.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* 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]].
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** The 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.
*** The Kytons, a race of sadomasochistic evil outsiders known as "Chain Devils", 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.
** 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).
* ''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.
* 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.
* 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).
* Subverted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' with Daemonettes of Slaanesh. While considered to be extremely beauty by anyone who views them, their true appearance is rather nasty (giant crustacean claws are a must) and the desire they exude is a form of {{Glamour}}. [[EldritchAbomination Slaanesh]] itself is hermaphroditic and androgynous but is a master of AppearanceIsInTheEyeOfTheBeholder, appearing as the pinnacle of beauty by whoever views it... and trapping those who view it to be its servants for all eternity.
* ''Tabletopgame/YuGiOh'':
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Fabled_Krus Fabled Krus]], who also appears to be a ShrinkingViolet.
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Traptrix Traptrix]] archetype visually resemble young girls in their own artworks, but based on the artwork of [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Traptrix_Trap_Hole_Nightmare Traptrix Trap Hole Nightmare]], they are either vicious creatures in disguise, or they play bait to trap prey for their "pets"

* 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 ''Theatre/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''.

* ''Toys/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:Video Games]]
* Quite a few characters from the ''Franchise/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, yet their women look like ordinary humans with horns. Although apparently [[MusclesAreMeaningless the women are just as strong, despite this]]...
* There are three female Splicer bodytypes in ''VideoGame/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''...
* ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'':
** Black Django -- the hero's vampiric form -- has pointed ears, fangs, blue skin, and bat wings... making him a Cute Monster ''Boy''.
** Red Durathor from the sequel is fairly cute despite having thorny armored plant-like arms and legs.
* Many of the monsters in the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' games, 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.
* [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Cthylla]] in ''VideoGame/ChaosCode'', if one can look past her shark-like dentition and penchant for blowing venomous ink in her opponents' faces.
* Genovefa in ''VideoGame/ChildOfLight'' is a [[FishPeople Fish Person]] with green skin and small fin-like protrusions spouting from her ears and tail. Contrast with Robert (a [[PettingZooPeople bipedal mouse]]), Oengus (a hulking armor-clad bear-goat-thing), and Golem (a big jagged rock {{Golem}}).
* 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.
* Cala Maria in ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' is a gigantic mermaid with octopus as hair that looks very adorable... And then she turns into a gorgon halfway through your boss-fight. She still qualifies as a GorgeousGorgon since she doesn't look as cute as before, she is far from horrifying.
* ''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.
* 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. Q-Bee is probably the most horrible, as 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.
* ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'':
** Most monsters are male, with the most obvious exceptions being the [[HornyDevils Succubus]] and the [[CatGirl Nekomata]], which are [[OneGenderRace all female]].
** The "standard" demon race of the Netherworld 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.
* In ''VideoGame/DivinityDragonCommander'', two of the four princesses you can marry in the game fit this trope:
** The lizard princess [[IceQueen Camilla]] who looks distinctly [[https://adriankoltun014.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/1920x1200_lizard.jpg human-like]] in contrast to other lizard characters and is rather [[NonMammalMammaries busty and curvy]].
** The undead princess [[ShrinkingViolet Ophelia]] is initially a walking skeleton, but if you pursue a romance with her, she will have her soul transferred to a new body of your choice: either a human female, a vampire or a flesh golem, and all of them are topless with [[GodivaHair her hair covering her breasts]].
* ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' has harpies and vampires, who look cute but are lethal predators who feed on human victims, as well as a friendly mermaid and fairy.
* ''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.)
* 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.
* 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.
* 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 ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII 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.
** Let's not forget [[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/finalfantasy/images/b/bc/VIICC_Jenova.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130901084122 Jenova]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' .
** The Cloud of Darkness, originally from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' and appearing in both ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]]'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', 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's appearance in the games are as follows: ''[[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/finalfantasy/images/b/b7/FF3NES-CloudOfDarkness2.gif FF3]]'' ''[[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/finalfantasy/images/6/6f/Cloud_of_Darkness_iOS.png FF3DS]]'' ''[[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20101216070617/finalfantasy/images/1/19/Cloud_of_darkness.png Dissidia]]'' ''[[http://www.ffxivinfo.com/images/screenshots/ffxiv-2258.jpg FFXIV]]''. 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]]. Convenient.
** 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''. 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.
** The females of the dragon-like Au Ra race in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' possess horns in place of ears, tails, and patches of scales scattered about their otherwise human-looking bodies. Their petite builds push them more towards the "cute" side of the attractiveness spectrum, being the smallest of all the races (Aside from the [[LittlePeople Lalafell]]), but their males are [[HugeGuyTinyGirl quite the opposite]].
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem''
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon]]'', most of the Dragon shapeshifters known as Manaketes are unattractive [[ElderlyImmortal Old Men]] with [[FangsAreEvil Fangs]], inhuman skintone, Claws, and [[WingedHumanoid leathery Wings]]. However one of the playable Manaketes, Tiki, merely looks like a little girl with PointyEars, sometimes with feathery wings. Xane, a Manakete Male, who lost his dragon form, also fits as a rare aversion as he looks like an ordinary human {{Bishounen}}, being one of the only Male Manaketes to be young or attractive.
** Half Manakete Siblings Ninian and Nils in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword]]''; Ninian is beautiful and ethereal, while Nils fits the "cute child growing into a handsome young man" role.
** While the [[LittleBitBeastly Laguz]] females in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' are quite attractive, the males [[YouSexyBeast are just as commonly attractive as well]].
** The aforementioned Tiki returns in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', and is joined by manakete and {{expy}}, Nowi and as well as Nowi's daughter Nah, and Morgan with a Manakete. The game also introduced Taguel, [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute which are heavily based on the beast Laguz]], the first playable character in it, Panne fits this and so does Morgan if a male Avatar marries Panne. Yarne is a Cute Monster Boy, and so is Morgan if a female Avatar marries him. Manakete Morgan, however, can only be female, fitting this trope. The only Male Dragon tribe member in the game, Grima, is monstrous, and never assumes a humanoid form.
** Five characters fall under this trope in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. The first and second of which are the playable Avatar (especially if female) and Kana (especially if female, which requires the Avatar to be Male), similar to the manakete in that they are half dragon. Another dragon named Lilith appears. The three of them look [[OurDragonsAreDifferent very different]] from how usual dragons do. The remaining two are [[{{Kitsune}} Selkie]] and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Velouria]] (along with their fathers), each exclusive to Hoshido and Nohr (respectively) and both being available in the third path.
* 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). It turns out [[spoiler:Myrrah actually ''is'' a mutated human.]]
* ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'': [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gems_of_war_drifting_sands.jpg The Djinn]] who looks like a human female.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'':
** The Fire Clan 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]].
** ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'''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 enter a more beastly form, which is largely indistinguishable from the werewolf/wolfman monsters (it's also a bit of a GameBreaker).
* ''Franchise/{{Grandia}}'':
** 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.
** 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.
* Elites (Alien-name Sangheili) from ''Franchise/Halo'' are lanky weird looking brown aliens with mandibles, so naturally the females look the same? [[https://img00.deviantart.net/18e4/i/2012/364/c/e/female_sangheili_by_a_zeldafan95-d5ppqev.jpg '''Nope''']].
* ''The VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead EX'' has Zobiko, a Cute Zombie Girl. She's also one of the main characters.
* ''VideoGame/KhimeraDestroyAllMonsterGirls'' is all about this, as one can understand from the title. The protagonist is one of the cutest chimeras ever.
* ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'':
** Medusa 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 ''VideoGame/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]]). Once she's nearly dead, though, she reveals [[GameFace what she actually looks like]]. It's quite horrifying.
** 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/KingsQuestVIIThePrincelessBride'', princess Rosella is transformed into a troll but retains some of her beauty, making her the cutest troll girl around.
* ''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]].
* [[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.)
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** 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 ''Twilight Princess''. 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.
** Ruto, the Princess of the Zora, grows into this after the TimeSkip in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. Compare [[https://d1u5p3l4wpay3k.cloudfront.net/zelda_gamepedia_en/d/db/Rutoadult.png?version=9b2c6aa3c14f9b8fe2ce5e2ed4c09633 her]] appearance with that of her [[https://d1u5p3l4wpay3k.cloudfront.net/zelda_gamepedia_en/1/14/Kingzora.png?version=7ff6ee2a631c770166911a8c14e23273 father's]].
** It's a recurring element with the Zora across the series. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'', the Zora once again have their much uglier [[Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon Gillman]]-esque "River Zora" looks from the earlier 2D games, but their Queen Oren looks like an attractive woman with a few River Zora attributes.
** Downplayed with Mipha from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. In contrast to the fish-like AnimalEyes and ScaryTeeth of the other Zora, her eyes and mouth are more human-like, but she otherwise exhibits the same bestial SharkMan attributes of the others. Her brother Sidon is considered a ChickMagnet in-universe despite being even more shark-like than the other Zora.
* Creator/AdultSwim Flash Game ''VideoGame/LesbianSpiderQueensOfMars'' has, well, the lesbian Spider Queen of Mars(it's the lower half that's a spider).
* ''[[{{VideoGame/Lineage2}} 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.)
* 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 HGame VisualNovel ''Monster Girl Quest'' is filled with these. They are actually all a nation of different OneGenderRace monsters who rely on human males to reproduce [[EroticEating and as a]] [[ImAHumanitarian food source]]. They range from this to [[BodyHorror downright]] [[NightmareFuel terrifying]].
* 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.
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat''
** Sheeva. She's a Shokkan: a ProudWarriorRace of [[StatuesqueStunner tall]], [[AmazonianBeauty muscular]], [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four-armed]] humanoids. But compared to her male counterparts Goro and Kintaro, Sheeva is relatively shorter and thinner in build and gets more attention from the fans than one would think. The one exception is ''VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon'', where she is considerably bulkier, which is fitting since she serves as the sub-boss for the female-only arcade ladder. When she returns in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' however, she's slender again.
** Mileena started off as subversion of this as she's mostly human-looking but has a gruesome set of [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily teeth]] thanks to her shared Tarkatan DNA which made her quite the ButterFace in the eyes of many players. ''However'' ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' changes her face giving her human lips and only her cheeks are toothy which causing players to note how beautiful she was. Fanart especially had a field-day with her makeover [[https://orig00.deviantart.net/7310/f/2015/106/d/2/mileena___request___by_esther_fan_world-d8ps505.jpg (wow)]].
** [[InsectQueen D'vorah]] from [=MKX=] would seem like she would count, but her personality and behavior just makes her gross and disturbing. Even her [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/mkwikia/images/0/02/D%27Vorah_MKX_ending_2015-04-15_15-20-48.png/revision/latest?cb=20150416012233 babies]] aren't really cute (mostly because their bursting out from Shinnok's stomach.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonBallOnline'' and ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'', female Majins look more like [[DistaffCounterpart Distaff Counterparts]] to Super Buu: they are slimmer, have feminine features, and more humanoid faces [[BizarreSexualDimorphism compared to the males of their race, who are large and rotund with more cartoonish faces]]. Justified in-universe as Majin Buu having created the first female Majin after being inspired by a dirty book.
* In ''VideoGame/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.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'':
** The tiefling Valen of the ''Hordes of the Underdark'' expansion is male example, being uncharacteristically attractive for a fiend.
** ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2: Mask of the Betrayer'' gives us another male example in Gannayev, 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]].
** 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.
* Ellen and Tammy from ''VideoGame/PaleBlue''. In contrast to most examples however they play much more on the monster aspect.
* 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.
* ''VideoGame/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.
* ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'':
** A number of odd {{NPC}}s can be added 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 [[HornyDevils succubus]]. 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".
** The Brothel for Slaking Intellectual Lusts, where you find Fall-From-Grace, is full of these. It is, after all, still a whorehouse in Sigil, even if it offers strictly non-physical intimacies. There's Marissa the {{medusa}}, the extremely voluptuous "planetouched" Kesai-Serris [[note]] she's a half-[[WitchSpecies Night Hag]] tiefling: her dad was a Cambion, a half-demon, mom was Ravel Puzzlewell the Night Hag[[/note]], Kimasxi Adder-Tongue the tiefling (though a scruffy and abrasive one, kept on as a sort of verbal dominatrix), and Dolora the [[RobotGirl very well-built golem]], most obviously, but it can be inferred most (or all) of the other six prostitutes are inhuman as well.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Gardevoir and Lopunny, which admittedly look the same regardless if they are male or female. Gardevoir's pre-evolved form, Kirlia, is a Cute Monster ''Little'' Girl, and it's pre-pre-evolved form, Ralts, is a Cute Monster ''Toddler'', while Gardevoir also has its male counterpart, Gallade, a cute monster boy.
** Several other Pokémon seem to be this (though again they appear identical regardless of gender), including Mismagius, Mawile, Gothitelle and Froslass. [[OneGenderRace Froslass is only female.]]
** Bellossom, Roselia, Roserade, Lilligant, and Florges can be seen as Cute Plant Girls, while Leavanny is a Cute Bug Girl.
** Mythical Pokémon Meloetta, Diancie and Magearna are genderless, but they look feminine, and adorable.
** By allowing most of its "Cute Monster Girl" mons to be male or female, Pokemon rather subverts this trope. Likewise, musclebound monsters like the Machop and Timburr lines can be either male or female.
** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' introduces several cute monster girls.
*** Brionne and Primarina, two very feminine Cute Seal/Mermaid Girls and the evolutions of the Alola Water Starter, Popplio. The catch: they only have a 1 in 8 chance of actually being female.
*** Steenee and Tsareena, the two evolved forms of Bounsweet and the newest line of Cute Plant Girls.
*** Lurantis is a Cute Plant Girl that is imitating a Cute Bug Girl.
*** Ribombee, Cutiefly's evolution is a Cute Bug/Fairy Girl that looks like it's wearing a scarf.
*** It also provides a particularly weird example in [[EldritchAbomination UB-02: Beauty]] [[spoiler:AKA Pheromosa]], which is a Cute ''Alien Cockroach'' Girl. No, really.
*** There's also the two "female" Tapus. Tapu Lele takes on the appearance of a cute, humanoid fairy in a half-shell, while Tapu Fini essentially looks like a mermaid.
* ''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.
* ''Anime/QueensBlade'' video games have Gal Monsters that can be caught and fight for the player.
* The female Satyros from ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria'', especially [[http://radianthistoria.wikia.com/wiki/Aht Aht]].
* ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' has a lot of these. Some examples: Maya, Moonlight Flower, Loli Ruri, Succubus, Valkyrie, Isis, Alice, Aliza. There are also many male examples.
* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'', Jezebel is ''absolutely adorable''! Even if she is {{Satan}}'s daughter.
* 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 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.
* 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''.
* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'':
** Most, if not all, the female demons and deities, 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.]]
** The kid-friendly 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.]]
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' uses this for a number of the old standards, but subverts it ''hard'' with some of the redesigns, especially for Lilith. You know how Lilith used to look like Gozer with a snake around her neck? '''''Not anymore.'''''
* 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.
* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' has the Zerg Queen of Blades, Sarah Kerrigan. For someone who's been infested by TheVirus she's still smokin' hot, but 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.
* ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' has The Mandragora/Alraune 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. Others included the Lamia/Medusas, Harpy/Feather Magics, Amphitra/Mermaid/Sea Horrors, and potentially the angels and summon guardians.
** Fenia from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld''; the best mage [[{{mons}} monster]] in the game, talks, and plays this trope perfectly straight.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth'' 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.
* Eliza in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' is a female vampire with demon-like characteristics like curved horns, but she is still very pretty, feminine and {{Adorkable}} due to her {{Sleepyhead}} tendencies.
* 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 {{youkai}} appearing [[HumanAliens almost indistinguishable to humans]]. For only some examples, Nitori is supposed to be a {{kappa}}, Aya and Hatate are supposed to be (crow) {{tengu}}, Mamizou is 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. There are occasional subversions, like Kogasa (a {{karakasa}} who is explicitly ''both'' the girl with the blue dress ''and'' the umbrella she's holding) and the bestial youkai rabbit in one of Maribel's dream-excursions, and very few of them ''act'' cute, most of them being violent bigoted jerks who are not above threatening to [[ToServeMan eat the protagonist]]. Played with by Nue, who is embarassed by how unscary her ShapeshifterDefaultForm is and goes to great lengths to hide it.
* Every character that isn't the PlayerCharacter [[spoiler:or Chara, the other fallen human]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is a monster, and while their designs vary, this trope is generally in effect for monsters of both genders, particularly for major characters. Undyne is basically a female human with scales, fangs, and a few fins (she also has an EyepatchOfPower and a long red ponytail) and Dr. Alphys is a dorky, anime-obsessed bipedal yellow lizard with NerdGlasses and a LabcoatOfScienceAndMedicine. Muffet is a spider-girl who resembles a bluish-purple-skinned humanoid girl in a Victorian tea-party outfit with extra limbs, eyes, and CuteLittleFangs. On the male side we have Papyrus, a goofy skeleton dressed in an elaborate costume, and his lackadaisical brother Sans. Both Toriel and [[spoiler:Asgore]] are older than usual for this trope--both are basically middle-aged--but resemble tall goat-like humanoids with friendly faces and white fur, and both have their fans in-universe and out. Mettaton seems to defy this, as despite being the underground's closest thing to a sex symbol he's just a boxy robot who is little more than a [=TV=] screen on a wheel, [[spoiler: but his alternate forms are androgynous robo-{{Bishonen}}s.]]
* 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.
* 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. They also tend to be [[MostCommonSuperpower rather well endowed]].
** Females of the minotaur-like Tauren are pretty heavily built, true... but they're still utterly slender and feminine compared to the massive bulls.
** 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 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 women are approximately [[HugeGuyTinyGirl half the mass of their male counterparts]], [[BizarreSexualDimorphism their tails and facial tendrils are far more understated]], and they lack the men's forehead crests that make the face look less human (trading it out for goat horns that the men lack). On the other hand, they're less human than the male draenei in a sexiness-enhancing way: the males just have a human, straight-backed posture, but the females' hooves give them a "high heels" posture that pushes the chest forward and the hips back. Even in-universe, female draenei are renown for their beauty.
** If you look at the female worgen as they are, you might not think the trope is in effect, as they do look like werewolves. However, compared to the old proposed model -- more stooped, less curvy -- you can see the logic of this trope has had an effect. Apparently customers just didn't like the "monsters not looking like supermodels" thing.
** The Forsaken, with the obvious exception of their queen [[MsFanservice Sylvanas Windrunner]], somewhat downplay this. While female Forsaken do look less ugly than their male counterpart, they still have the same decaying parts and somewhat hunchback stance, their chest is ''much'' less pronounced than for other races, and they overall tend to inspire more UncannyValley rather than Fetish Fuel, since making zombies sexy is too weird even for ''World of Warcraft''.
* The 3rd-person [[MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena MOBA]] ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'' loves this trope. While male deities can range from human to positively monstrous, many of the female deities are almost universally beautiful women with various costume additions, with a few exceptions. Special mention should be made to Scylla [[spoiler:for toying with this trope]]: she's depicted as a cute little girl in a dress with a mischievous smile...[[spoiler:and four horrific dog-headed serpent-tentacles instead of legs!]]
* The cave goblins of ''VideoGame/RuneScape'' are pale-skinned, goggle-eyed, lanky, hairless, [[EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference low-poly]], and strange-looking even by goblin standards. And then there's Zanik, who after [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scz4yla.png her latest graphical update]] looks like she just stepped out of a {{Moe}} anime.
* The rather grotesque-looking EnthrallingSiren boss in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' will appear as a naked and beautiful monster girl when she enthralls a party member ([[BiTheWay both the male and the female members]]), but this trope is decidedly very much averted otherwise.
* Talus from ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' is a cute monster ''boy'', with grey skin, wide eyes, horns, CuteLittleFangs, a bull-like tail, a big heart, and an [[{{Keet}} energetic personality]]. He's a skal'drin, an ancient species of demon-like people who have been oppressed for ages and he strives to proves that his kind are not evil demons that others think they are.

[[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, since any normal person who sees her is [[BrownNote driven insane]]. 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.]]
* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Akiha is pretty cute, there's Arcueid, and Nanako is a half human half unicorn spirit that's the MoeAnthropomorphism of the Seventh Scripture.
* ''Love At First Sight'' centers around Sachi Usui, a shy and physically-battered cyclops who suffers from bullying.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The ghost girl from ''WebAnimation/BamanPiderman''.
* ''WebAnimation/TheSpiderCliffMysteries'': Crystal (demon) and Annabelle (zombie).

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* 565-14 in ''Webcomic/AllenTheAlien'' is a cute young alien girl, but she is too young to be a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe.
* In ''Webcomic/BasketsOfGuts'' most of the female cast are this.
* ''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 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]] (in her case 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/DevilsCandy'' has cute monsters of both genders attending the AllGhoulsSchool Hemlock Heart Academy.
* ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'' subverts this for laughs: [[AnythingThatMoves Aragorn]] assumes that the Ents will be attractive, Dryad-like PlantPeople and is [[http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=1125 quite dismayed]] to meet a craggy old tree with a bearded face instead.
--> '''Aragorn:''' Oh, like Dryads? ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' had Dryads in it... They're like sexy tree ladies.\\
'''Legolas:''' Sexy? I thought they had leaves for hair. And bark skin.\\
'''Aragorn:''' Yeah, but they're all chicks. Naked chicks. Leafy, naked tree chicks.\\
'''Gimli:''' Ye need help, lad. Ye really do.
* All orcs in ''Webcomic/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.
* ''Webcomic/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.
* 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.
* ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' temporarily turned several female characters into these in order to [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/2004363/page-666-the-number-of-the-beast/ celebrate Page 666]].
* Ambrosia Verdandi from ''Webcomic/FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts''. She's also a doctor wannabe!
* Nitrine of ''Webcomic/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.
* ''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]], who gets a lot cuter once she's dressed for her job as the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20151209#.Vv6KQOIrLIU head of the Mechanicsburg Diplomatic Corps.]]
** [[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.
** The girls working at Mamma Gkika's [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080423#.V4e8YrgrLIU exploit this trope to the full.]] Although only two female jagers have been seen in-comic, the girls don fangs, claws and pointed ears to appear like extremely humanoid jagers. Apparently they offer ''"dinner and a show"'' (for both the tourists and for the real jagers hiding out in the basement) making the bar a notorious tourist trap, but a later visit to Mamma Gkika's shows that the jager-frau offer a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20111121#.V4fBobgrLIV little more than that]] at certain times of day.
** 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.]]
** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080125 Ferretina the Evil Weasel Queen]] from the [[{{Omake}} side-story]] "Revenge of the Weasel Queen".
** Maxim and Oggie fall under the heading of Cute Monster ''Boys''.
* ''Webcomic/{{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/{{Homestuck}}'':
** The [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] 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.
* 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.
* 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''.
* Molly in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' is an extremely cute pink furry monster. Princess Voluptua still manages to be pretty attractive even in her insect form, as well.
* Hala River from ''[[http://subcultura.es/webcomic/elis/1 Irregular Elis]]'' is an alien.
* ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' has both Marena (Lunar TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}, 'foxy', and arguably the MsFanservice of the strip) and Secret (''Abyssal'' Exalted, 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.
* Benn'Joon of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''. 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:It is later heavily implied that her mother is the quite attractive Elven pirate Captain Tah'Vraay, so Benny appears to be at least part Elf. The markings around her eyes and three-digit hands similar to the Minotaurs hints that she may very well be [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction Krunch's]] biological daughter.]]
* The unnamed gorgon protagonist in ''Webcomic/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.
* All the female cast (and males) from ''Webcomic/{{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!
* ''Webcomic/NerfNow'' has [[http://nerfnow.com/comic/27 Cute Zerg Girls]]. As in, the Zerg from ''VideoGame/StarCraft''.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** 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.)
* ''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]]!
* ''Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad'':
** The Deer Woman (based on Native American mythos) at the begining 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.
* Soraya from ''Webcomic/{{Poharex}}'' combines this with LizardFolk.
* Most of the [[LizardFolk coatlaltec]] girls from ''Webcomic/RestauranteMacoatl'' fit this trope, the only trace of them being reptiles are their tails and claws.
* [[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?"]]
* All of the main characters in ''Webcomic/SchoolBites'' are cute vampire girls, some going into the catgirl variety.
* The title character of ''Webcomic/{{Selkie}}'' has gray skin, flippers, and fangs.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Shadowgirls}}'', [[spoiler:Christmas Snow]]'s mother is a female [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Deep One]], but not ''nearly'' as grotesque as one of the 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.
* ''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.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'':
** Parodied 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.
* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' gives us Minerva, a {{Stripperiffic}} [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic]] Cerberus whose three heads offer something for [[UsefulNotes/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 slender 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 [[SpiderPeople drider]].
* The Creo in ''Webcomic/{{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.
* Anak Zahard from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' is a cute specimen from the LizardFolk.
* ''Webcomic/WhatsShakin'' has a few, most notably an undead lady Ell and an orc girl Pai.
* 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.
* ''Webcomic/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 webcomic [[http://kukuruyo.com/comic/0-monster-girls-on-tour-cover/ "Monster Girls on Tour."]] has a wide cast of this creatures, with a Salamander as the main one.
* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' [[http://oglaf.com/dimorphism/ parodies]] the tendency for BizarreSexualDimorphism in fantasy to produce [[MsFanservice attractive ladies]]. The other races are rather confused that human males look like unattractive females of other races.
-->''"Why do the females look the same in all species? Nobody knows!"''
* Aracia Paukoobraznyy from ''Webcomic/ZooAcademy'' is a spider Bifera (part human part animal) and she's very cute despite other characters thinking she's a little scary.
* ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' has a plethora of these, notably [[HornyDevils Artemis]] and [[SpiderPeople Entegra]]. The timeskip later introduces Damien and Inu, a pair of [[InvertedTrope Cute Monster Boys]].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Roleplay/Bay12MonsterGirls'' is essentially entire world of them. And so it's [[Bay12MonsterGirlsV2 sequel.]]
* The Lampyrians from ''Literature/BeyondTheImpossible''. Blue skin, no nose and large bat-like wings. They are exclusively female, live only for two years and are universally considered [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe incredibly attractive]].
* ''Felarya'' is 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 [[SpiderPeople driders]] (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.
* 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.
* The ''Jade Regent'' Campaign from ''Podcast/RPGMP3'' features a character called Misty the [[HornyDevils Succubus]]. Misty is a [[TheDitz bubbly]], [[BrainlessBeauty bouncy]], [[DumbBlonde charmingly naïve]] teenage girl with [[BuxomIsBetter talents that make her invaluable to the team]]. She also happens to be a demonic Succubus from the deepest pits of the Abyss, who 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.
* While there's no images of her on the website, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-811 SCP-811]] of the Wiki/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]]]].
* [[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.
* 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.
* ''WebOriginal/{{Mortasheen}}'' has [[http://bogleech.com/mortasheen/mothstrous.htm Mothstrous]], a human-moth hybrid who 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".
* ''WebVideo/DrCrafty'' has Nurse Worse, the lab assistant of the titular doctor. Her design evokes FrankensteinsMonster with stitched green skin and metal bolts on her head and arms, but she's also an {{Adorkable}} BigBeautifulWoman who provides helpful commentary on the process for Dr. Crafty's creations.
* Season 4 of ''Podcast/DiceFunk'' has Algernon Sharp, a bishonen medusa boy who dresses in a flashy display of fashion. His eyes can't petrify you because he takes medication to prevent it, it's that kind of world.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has [[PrettyPrincessPowerhouse Princess Bubblegum]] (a candy person [[MeaningfulName made of gum]]), [[CuteAndPsycho Flame Princess]] ([[MeaningfulName a fire elemental]]), and [[VampireMonarch Marceline]] (a shapeshifting vampirised half-demon HalfHumanHybrid). Flame Princess and Princess Bubblegum are the most extreme examples, as the other (mostly male) fire elementals and Candy People look much less humanoid than they do. However, other female characters and creatures are 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, but most likely this is due to her being [[spoiler:Ice King's [[SelfInsertFic self insert]].]] Due to the fact that the cast has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. there are a few more. However, they're still outnumbered by the weird ones.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Wasp becomes one when she's mutated by Gamma Radiation.
* 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.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'':
** It seems that while male Martians 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.
* 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.
* 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 turned Elisa into a gargoyle, Elisa qualified for this -- though [[InterspeciesRomance Goliath considered her more beautiful as a human]].
* ''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/GravedaleHigh'' is about a [[AllGhoulsSchool high school of monsters]], so some of the monsters are cute teenage girls including Durze (a Gorgon), Blanche (a Zombie) and Cleo (a Mummy).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresofBillyandMandy'' has two male examples:
** [[HumanoidAbomination Nergal Jr.]] has a ''huge'' number of [[{{Fangirl}} fangirls]] because, while monstrous (and sometimes a {{Yandere}}), he is {{Adorkable}}.
** A zig-zagged example would be [[BlackandNerdy Ir]][[NonActionGuy win]]; he starts of an ordinary, harmless nerd. He later turns out to be a [[HybridMonster vampire-mummy]]. Either way, he's in the same {{Adorkable}} boat as Junior.
* ''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.
* Saffi from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', with one eye, orange skin, and HartmanHips, and Heloise may count, given her AmbiguouslyHuman status. A few background characters qualify as well.
* Plenty of the girls from ''WesternAnimation/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.
* ''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.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has difficulty turning out anything that ''isn't'' cute due to it's art style:
** Queen Chrysalis, being a fanged insect-like "pony" with holes in her legs was intended to look gross according to WordOfGod, but could easily pass for a gothic supermodel by pony standards.
** Flutterbat, a feral fanged "werebat" form of Fluttershy that hisses and flies around on big leathery wings.
** The Sphinx. Half pony, half cat. How could that ever not be cute?
** And of course are the monstrous forms of Sunset Shimmer, Twilight Sparkle, Gloriosa Daisy, and Juniper Montage from the ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' series, with Juniper's form being HollywoodHomely at absolute rock-bottom worst.
%%* Iris from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom''.
* ''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.
** Grimadonna the vampire superstar from the Netherworld. A sexy humanoid woman just with purple hair, pointy ears, blue skin and fangs.
* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'':
** [[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.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ScreamStreet'' Cleo the mummy fits this trope, as do "Cute Monster Boys" Resus the vampire (with his CuteLittleFangs) and Luke the werewolf (though not so much when he's in his full wolf form!)
* ''WesternAnimation/DieSendungMitDerMaus'' has a monster kid writing his mommy a Mother's Day poem. Mommy surely isn't sexually-attractive-cute (still, you can see her teats! Gasp!) but you can safely say she is heartwarming-grotesque-cute.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'':
** Star looks like a fourteen year old girl with heart tattoos on her cheeks. She transformed temporarily into a monsterous butterfly-like form during mewberty, yet still looked adorable despite being terrifying.
** Hekapoo. She looks like a pale young girl with horns and maybe fur.
* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': The series's "gems" are sentient rocks from outer space who project physical forms that resemble human women, usually with non-human [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation skin]] and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hair colors]], while most [[FusionDance fusions]] also possess multiple eyes and/or limbs. As opposed to most other examples on this page, gems take a wide variety of body shapes, not only conventionally attractive ones.
* ''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.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Kitten in the 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).
* Anytime one of the main characters of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' is mutated into a half-human this is the guaranteed outcome. Even as a half-''cockroach'' Alex still manages to be quite cute.
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'':
** The earliest female robots were indeed curvy and sexy, but more diverse female Transformer designs were 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.]]
* 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 (for possibly good reason) minority race among her own species.]]
