* The minions of ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'' were created specifically to evoke this trope. They look like goblins or the Film/{{Gremlins}}, but act like AxCrazy little children, loyal to a fault to their overlord and eager to earn his praise. Watching them run back to give you some of the loot they found is adorable. Or watching them grab an item (such as a pumpkin or a dead rat) and use it as equipment (in this case, a hat).
** Even more so in ''Overlord II'' when they sing and say adorable stuff to their mounts.
* ''VideoGame/{{Oddworld}}'' pretty much runs on this trope. [[TheWoobie Poor Abe]].
** Paramites are vicious spider-like creatures with a hand for a face. Strangely, they look oddly adorable.
* The Arachnotrons (and possibly the Spiderdemons) from ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''. Also, related to the beholder example: the Pain Elementals and Cacodemons. (The latter actually has had ''two'' fanmade plush dolls made, one of them being the official mascot of the [=DoomWiki=].)
* Some of the baddies in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'', particularly the Klaptraps with their [[CuteLittleFangs cute little snaggle-teeth]].
* The viruses of ''VideoGame/DrMario'' are cute, even if they are little disease-spreading creeps.
* Quite a few of the animals in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' both hostile and otherwise. A good example would be the Empire Balmoraa World Boss, which is an Ancient Bormu. Bormu are like Hippo-Caterpillars. I rest my case.
* Baby Franchise/{{Metroid}}s, both the plot-significant one in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' and the bitty little things in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime Prime 2]]'' and ''3''.
* Many of the mushroom people in ''VideoGame/MushroomMen'', especially the hero, Pax. Sure, he's got beady little eyes, a raggedy-looking "lost boy" style tunic, and his mushroom cap ''breaks away to reveal his brain...'' But just ''watch'' the intro, where poor little Pax is wandering all by himself in the [[MouseWorld big scary human world]], glowing eyes looking out innocently.
* The creatures of ''Jade Cocoon 2'' quickly grow on you.
* Kouri in ''VideoGame/BrassRestoration'' finds the Ill-pin stuffed... ''characters'' adorable. They are based on ''viruses''. Ryo, the main character, just doesn't see it.
* A lot of Franchise/{{Pokemon}} are this. Even more so in X/Y, where the Pokemon Amie feature lets you play with your Pokemon and brings out the cuteness of a lot of species that most wouldn't think of as being cute at a first glance.
** One that comes to mind is Gible. Seriously, just [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:443Gible.png look at it!]]
** Especially [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:209Snubbull.png Snubull]] and [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:210Granbull.png Granbull]], two bulldog-based Pokémon that are said to be popular with women. In the anime, one even started acting like a ClingyJealousGirl with Meowth (or was just obsessed with biting his tail).
** Some of the Pokémon in the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Ruby]]'' ROM hack, ''PokemonQuartz'', fall under this as well, surprisingly.
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:349Feebas.png Feebas]], a shabby little fish Pokémon, has a secret: if you feed it many, many Dry-flavoured (blue) Pokéblocks and level it up, it turns into something that is BeautifulAllAlong, the much-coveted Milotic.
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:559Scraggy.png Scraggy]] also counts, since it's a lizard who wears its shed skin as pants. And it's ridiculously lovable.
** Considering that it's basically [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:104Cubone.png a chubby dinosaur]] who ''wears the skull of its dead mother'', [[BadWithTheBone Cubone]] just radiates a [[{{Woobie}} "hug me" aura.]]
** There's also [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Muk_(Pokémon) Muk]]. He's a giant pile of toxic waste, but comes across as a fairly lovable blob.
** There's also the baby Bug-type Pokémon. Most of them are based on squirming larvae that in real life you'd hit with a broom, thinking that an EldritchAbomination was here to feed on your soul. But Game Freak managed to make them cute.
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:595Joltik.png Joltik]] - it doesn't help that it's based on the jumping spider.
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:618Stunfisk.png Stunfisk]], in all of its derpiness, could also qualify, as well as [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:129Magikarp.png Magikarp]].
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:167Spinarak.png Spinarak]]. It's a spider the size of a human baby, and it's disarmingly adorable.
** There are also plush toys based on chibi versions of many of the Pokémon, many of which can be considered ugly-cute, including [[HumanoidAbomination Darkrai]] and both forms of [[EldritchAbomination Giratina]].
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Goomy_(Pokémon) Goomy]], [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/goomy to the point of]] MemeticMutation.
** [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/02/424Ambipom_Dream.png Ambipom]]. Its unusual appearance can be [[{{Adorkable}} part of its charm]].
* Most characters from ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' are really creepy when you first see them, but when you get used to them, some of 'em are kind of... adorable. Like Uboa. Happiest-looking EldritchAbomination ever.
** And Masada seems to be a strange sort of MrFanservice, judging by parts of the fandom, and is also often seen as a [[TheWoobie Woobie]].
** If you search on Website/DeviantART, it's easy enough to find quite a few pictures of fan-made Uboa plushies. Yes, that's right, people like to cuddle with Uboa.
** Little Monoko, aka the cutest freak of nature you've ever seen.
* The good ending of ''VideoGame/{{Eversion}}''. [[spoiler:Two {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, together at last]]!
* The Mr. Saturns in ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' and ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' are comical big-nosed creatures with massive eyebrows and a single hair on their head, tied up with a red bow, and yet, their {{Wingdinglish}} and the [[VerbalTic "Boing"s, "Zoom"s and "Ding"s]] littered in their speech are both endearing.
* "[[VideoGame/BioShock1 Come on, Mr. Bubbles]]!"
** It helps that despite being one of the most dangerous common enemies, Big Daddies are also the only ones that ''don't'' actively attack you on sight.
** The Little Sisters count too. Their eyes might be a solid, sickly, glowing yellow, but they're still cute.
* The baby forms of most aliens you can make in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' tend to be like this. Sometimes the adult forms can be, too.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** One of the non-combat pets available is a baby version of a Beholder-like demon. It's a floating head with one huge eye and small stubby tentacles. It also drools a lot and randomly falls asleep. It's at the same time very ugly and absolutely adorable. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Said Beholder-like demon is also named Sleepy Willy]], or simply Willy. [[http://wowhead.com/item=32617#screenshots:id=24801 Here's some screenshots of the little fella.]]
** The Disgusting Oozeling, a pet that's essentially a small blob of slime.
** The Core Hound Pup. It's a sort of two-headed baby bargain-basement Cerberus with lava for skin...that plays with a chew toy.
** The Oracles are a race of sort of ugly frog-like creatures that have very cute speech. Now in hideously adorable [[http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=65381 pet]] form.
** Murky in any of his various guises. Or any of the other vanity pets.
** [[TheWoobie Broken draenei]].
** Baby Murlocs. [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=46257#screenshots:id=197774 All together now]].
** Behold, [[http://www.wowhead.com/npc=45212/gory#comments Gory]], the Abomination. A giant golem made of rotted flesh and organs with bone and metal sticking out of him and an stomach that hangs open and exposes his innards...who only wants to be a farmer and tells you so with an innocent, childlike enthusiasm.
* ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'''s Raving Rabbids. As well as Moskito from the first ''VideoGame/{{Rayman|1995}}'' game.
* Many of the Zerg creatures from the original ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' fit this trope. The little Zerglings are quite cute on the screen, and way they pounce on the Terrans like kittens at a ball of yarn only makes them cuter. All of the wild creatures also apply, being horribly proportioned beasts that look cute in spite of it.
** Banelings. Bloated little monstrosities, with the entire back two-thirds of their body devoted to a bunch of pulsating sacs of acidic pus. Before the speed upgrade is evolved, they get around via an ungainly waddle; after the speed upgrade, they tuck themselves into balls and roll around. Their fate is to run or roll into a mass of infantry and explode. They're ''adorable''.
** Remember the Ragnasaur found on Char? Big forlorn orange eyes, irritated groan whenever you poke it...
* ''VideoGame/TheLastGuardian''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4E0e-ZCn14 The hyena-gryphon creature]] in this game is meant to be unbalanced and strange-looking. Who, after watching that trailer, didn't think the creature was the most adorable giant beastie ever?
* The Colossi from ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus''. Some of them are hard to kill just because they look so cute and pathetic.
* The grunts from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. After awhile you just feel sorry for them, while admiring their pluck, and smiling at their little dog-like huffs and growls.
** Another ''Halo'' example are the Engineers. They are essentially floating gas bladders with a small head and tenticles, but they coo like small whales and shiver and recoil in fear from danger. They aren't the most attractive creatures but they are the only passive enemies in the series and eventually you will start to feel bad for killing them.
* The alien spawn from ''VideoGame/TheSims 2'' tend to turn out this way. Some players might disagree (and there are hacks out there to have the aliens be more conventionally cute) but the bug-eyed, no nosed green babies are adorable.
** The products of "Breed Ugly Sims" challenge games frequently end up in HollywoodHomely territory, being strange-looking but still very attractive (largely due to averting OnlySixFaces). The truly ugly ones, however, are inevitably this trope, and consequently ''no less popular''.
* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', there's a small Wyvern called the Yian Kut-Ku. It has an oversized head, disproportionate ears, and is generally [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Y2LuuSZF6uY/SjSGpKbrtuI/AAAAAAAAAdA/QWmnHELJDf4/s400/jeu_psp_136.png very much non cute]]. However, perhaps due to its [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy running and falling down]], his cheerful screechings and his beak feeling similar to a smiling face when open, there are few players who haven't ended up feeling some kind of odd fondness for the guy, and he's a prime target of fanart.
** Similarly, the monster Khezu may look like a cross between an oversized maggot and male genitalia, but that doesn't stop fanartists to draw adorable little chibi versions of it. It doesn't help that some of the cutest female armor sets in the game are made of Khezu material.
** Almost all of the monsters in general could fall under this category. Moreso when they're sleeping, and ''especially'' with their SuperDeformed versions that show up in the Felyne spin-off titles.
** The Mini Uragaan in ''Monster Hunter Tri'' and ''Ultimate'' has gained special fondness from players because of this. And its [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpHXMbzdxpo unique, cheerful battle theme]], too.
* ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' has Chaos, who is fought in multiple forms over the course of the game. A few of the forms can count as examples of this trope, but the best example is probably Chaos 6.
** Some breeds of the Chao are also like this.
** Another example from Sonic are the alien slugs in ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog''. Antennae, a single eye, a goopy slug body. Some fans insist they're adorable; others find them disgusting.
** Eggman himself, as well as Froggy and Motobug.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', the bartender of Moriarty's Saloon, Gob.
** His mother Carol, too. Despite being what are essentially sentient zombies, they're just so sweet and endearing!
** There's also the Mole Rats. Especially Pumpkin.
** Charon, also a ghoul, [[EnsembleDarkhorse has quite the share of fangirls]].
** Doesn't matter if they're trying to burn the player alive, Fire Geckos are ''cute''.
** Baby Deathclaws. Look at those tiny horns! Who's a good murder lizard? You are! Yes, you-- [[KilledMidSentence aaaaargh]]!
* [[http://mysims.wikia.com/wiki/File:Zombie_Carl.jpg Zombie Carl]] from ''VideoGame/MySims''.
* Many ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' monsters may qualify, but the Tonberry most of all; he may be one of the most dangerous random encounters around, but a diminutive fish-lizard-thing with a lantern somehow winds up being cute enough to sell plush toys.
* Arakune from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. He's basically a human-sized EldritchAbomination / BlobMonster. Still, his little "face" (which has a more than passing resemblance to the [[GhostInTheShell Tachikomas']]) makes him [[http://daiphyer.com/forum/uploads/monthly_10_2009/post-283586-1254904522.jpg eerily adorable]].
* A lot of the enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'', like the [[http://pikmin.wikia.com/wiki/Toady_Bloyster toady bloyster]], [[http://pikmin.wikia.com/wiki/Ranging_Bloyster ranging bloyster]], [[http://pikmin.wikia.com/wiki/Dweevil dweevils]], and even the [[http://pikmin.wikia.com/wiki/Emperor_Bulblax emperor bulbax]] with its little eyes and flopping tongue.
* The Ground Urchins and Raptor Elks from ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend''. Also the Metal Beasts - giant Aztec panther [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Nibblers]].
* The headcrabs in ''VideoGame/HalfLife''. Illustrated with [[http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/File:Kleiner_holding_lamarr.jpg Lamarr]], the pet headcrab of Doctor Kleiner, who while de-beaked and harmless, will nonetheless try to swallow your skull. Valve even makes plushes of them, though the original version was decidedly cuter and less accurate than [[http://store.valvesoftware.com/product.php?i=H0301 the current model]].
* The title character of ''The Maw''. It's an ExtremeOmnivore MiracleGroMonster with rows of sharp teeth and one eye. As it grows bigger it's happy chuckling become sinister-sounding laughter. Despite it all it's a cowardly creature who follows the alien player character Frank around like a little puppy and is always happy to eat, [[spoiler:and the hug between Frank and Maw's massive eyeball at the end is utterly d'awww-inducing]]. Think of ABoyAndHisBlob if The Blob was an EldritchAbomination.
* The ''[[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]]'' series has its share of these:
** In the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' original game, a few of the dungeon bosses qualify for this trope, such as Aquamentus (the unicorn dragon...thing).
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', many of the transformed people dwelling in the Dark World are this in their cursed forms.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' there's Yeto and Yeta.
** Linebeck in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass''.
** Despite being the [[EldritchAbomination embodiment of evil]], [[SealedEvilInACan The Imprisoned]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' came off as this to a lot of people since it ended up looking like a ''Series/SesameStreet'' character (at least until the arms, tail, and halo-thing come out).
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', there is the stalchild enemy. They're supposed to look like creepy skeletons, but they look like goofy looking turtles instead.
* Gizmo, the FinalBoss from ''VideoGame/LilMonster''. It's a fanged, leathery, winged abomination... in an [[FunSize adorable chibi-package!]] (Doesn't hurt that it's an InfinityPlusOneSword-{{mon}}.)
* Megalo from ''VideoGame/FossilFighters''. It was deliberately designed to look like people ''thought'' dinosaurs used to look, so it's big, lumpy, gray, and dopey-faced. But it's that derpy expression that makes it so incredibly endearing.
* In ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'', heroine Jade's sidekicks are an obese, middle-aged PigMan with dark, truly ''animal'' eyes, tusks, a hairy chest, and a [[{{Gasshole}} propensity toward flatulence]], and an [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} out-of-it]] TopHeavyGuy with a lumpy nose, strange, sideways mouth, and BigOlEyebrows. They're also ''incredibly'' kind, sincere, and loving, and thus get a lot of love.
* The Ettins and Grendels from the ''VideoGame/{{Creatures}}'' series. The main Creatures, the Norns, are ''supposed'' to be cute. But the Ettins have lumpy, monkey-like bodies and strange red eyes, while the Grendels are nasty little reptilian critters with diseases and angry expressions. But when they display the same sort of helplessness as the Norns, well, it's hard ''not'' to love them.
** Grorns too, with some of the adorable features of norns and the not so adorable features of grendels, are generally adorable anyway.
* ''VideoGame/HellgateLondon'' had pets, originally available to multiplayer subscribers only, that were intended this trope, and some players find them this way.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** Urz, a tame varren (a.k.a. "[[FanNickname fishdog]]") in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Unlike most of his species, Urz will allow you to pet him, and if you feed him some pyjak meat, he will happily follow you around Tuchanka, bounding like a puppy.
** Thane manages to look like a rotting fish with the voice of a rusty lawn mower and still being a highly attractive man. Of course, Thane was ''deliberately'' designed to be [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe exotically alien]] but [[MrFanservice attractive]] to female players.
** Garrus is a much better example of this trope, especially after his scarring, considering female Shepard can engage in some good-natured teasing of him for being ugly (which doesn't stop you from being able to romance him). He's also considered TheWoobie both in-game and in the fandom.
** The [[TheEeyore elcor]].
** Krogan, particularly [[http://jimhuxter.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/krogan-babies.jpg their infants]].
* ''Franchise/SilentHill'' has the Larval Stalkers in the first game, which have no face and are almost entirely invisible. Harry will still aim his gun at them or hold his Pipe at them, and Silent Hill is one of the few games to still follow the "if it moves, kill it" rule. Naturally you just aim and empty a clip into whatever you're aiming at, but the radio still gives off static. Some people stopped in their tracks simply to watch the little child-like manifestation bumble around and fall over a few times, before finally disappearing.
** Also the [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100403012947/silent/images/e/e1/Numbbody0.png Numb Bodies]] from ''SilentHill3'', and (to a large portion of the Japanese fandom, at least,) the [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100510221531/silent/images/d/d7/Twins01.PNG Twin Victims]] from ''VideoGame/SilentHill4''.
** Dena seems to [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/bt/dn/gameden/12503-gdsh302 think so]]. (3:36 minutes in). Look at 'em go!
* The little robot in ''VideoGame/{{Machinarium}}'' is made of rusty scrap metal and grunts to communicate, but is still absolutely adorable. The fact that he is a [[TheWoobie Woobie]] definitely aids the cute factor.
* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'':
** Nugs look like the subterranean hybrid of rabbits and pigs. Although they're a tasty delicacy to the dwarves, some people apparently domesticate them; in fact, you can acquire a nug for [[ActionGirl Leliana]], which she will name Schmooples. They are actually kind of cute, though their constant squeaking is a bit annoying to the point that Oghren will threaten to [[EatTheDog eat Schmooples]].
** Deepstalkers are also cute despite their horrible lamphrey-like mouths and their tendency to spit poison.
* Ghasts from ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' seem to have been designed with this trope in mind. They're vile little gremlins with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily, but they tumble out of their holes when they attack, make goofy noises during combat and wear funny hats. They even flop over in a comical way when they die.
* Little Birdie from ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' is adorable, even when [[KillerRabbit it kills the scientists]]. [[spoiler:Turns out that it's baby Ridley!]]
* The entire ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series of games is loaded with monsters like this thanks to AkiraToriyama doing the designs. If a monster isn't a RidiculouslyCuteCritter, it's invariably one of these instead.
** King Trode from ''DragonQuestVIII'', who is cursed into a chubby green orc.
* Many of the characters in VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}, mostly due to the art style.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'': The demons that can be [[SummonMagic summoned]] in the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Demon Summoning]] power set have no skin, various skulls for faces, and are wreathed in fire (or ice). And yet, there is something undeniably cute about them. The demonlings especially, whose IdleAnimation is to sit there ''[[AllAnimalsAreDogs wagging their tails]]''.
* So many of the infected in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' fall under this category. The hunter falls under this especially when drawn in chibi style. The boomer looks like a chubby kid with bloated puss sacks and looks like he wants a cookie, the smoker even with his facial deformities, the tank with his humungous body and tiny head, and especially the witch whos basically a zombified CuteMonsterGirl. Valve knows the creatures they made are cute. [[http://store.valvesoftware.com/index.php?t=2 They even made plushies!]]
** In some lights, ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'''s charger and jockey, especially because one looks like deformed hillbilly farmer and the other looks like a retarded midget on crack.
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'''s Creepers. Deformed pig model that's green and aptly-named, but is absolutely adorable.
** Y'know, when it's not trying to kill your or destroy the creations you've invested hours on.
* Within the ''VideoGame/MonsterRancher'' universe, the patron saint of this trope is probably the Color Pandora. It is a strange, vaguely caterpillar-esque monster with [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100202010924/monsterrancher/images/a/a5/ColorPandora_3.jpg freaky human faces]] on its separated body segments... that makes high, squeaky noises and does cute acrobatic tricks. In-universe, it's hailed as a shining example of how to cooperate. Out-of-universe, its Ugly Cuteness gives it a surprising number of fans.
* The cutscene at the beginning of the first level of ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersJericho'' features a prophetic dream in which the leader of an occult group speaks with a [[CreepyChild strange, blackened child like creature]] that speaks in [[VoiceOfTheLegion a voice that wavers between a guttural growl and a pleasant child's voice]]. Creepy Cute as much as Ugly Cute. [[spoiler:It also turns out to be the game's BigBad.]]
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' features Kog'Maw, a little critter from the Void that spews acidic goo at things. Koggy is ''adorable'' in his little mutated way with mannerisms like a puppy, and if official plushies ever hit the merch store Kog'Maw is probably close to the top of the list.
** Twitch as well. There's something oddly adorable about the derpy-eyed, crossbow-wielding, plague rat. Might be due to the resemblance to [[WesternAnimation/IceAge Scratt]].
* The guars from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''.
* Pretty much everyone in ''VideoGame/MeatBoy''.
* The art style of ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' produces a lot of these characters. The Soda Poppers are an example GoneHorriblyWrong, but fortunately the game lends opportunities to abuse them every time they appear.
* [[spoiler:Post-transformation Emil]] from ''VideoGame/NieR'' is a character whose design straddles a surprisingly fine line between being considered vaguely cute and being considered downright horrifying (and for some people succeeds at being both simultaneously). Add in his sunny disposition and penchant for being a bit of a childish romantic and you now have a surprisingly adorable pseudo-mascot... with a grin that will still make people ''deeply'' uncomfortable.
* Most of the enemies from the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series games like [[TheGoomba Goombas]] and [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Boos.]] Yes, even [[BigBad Bowser]].
* ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''
* [[EnsembleDarkhorse Mr. Fit]] from the ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' series.
** The Jinjos, as well as King Jingaling's "cool pet thing."
* Some of the [[TheHeartless Blotlings]] from ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'', particularly the [[http://images.wikia.com/epicmickey/images/d/db/Spatter_image.jpg Spatters]] who get a neat little costume depending on what area you're in, and the chubby Spladooshes, who (as long as stay a safe distance or have befriended them) are perfectly content to sit there and sleep.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' gave the collectable [[{{Mons}} Djinn]] more individual features, ranging from varied crests to bloated bellies to [[GrotesqueCute gaping black holes in various parts of their body that they suck enemies into]]. Because of their helpful nature when in speaking roles and [[ClassAndLevelSystem many]] [[{{Familiar}} benefits]] [[DefeatMeansFriendship once allied with you]], they're widely considered endearing and adorable, and this at the worst.
* The Mars People in ''VideoGame/MetalSlug''. Especially in 6, where they salute the player. Awww...
* The Dream Eaters in ''VideoGame/{{Kingdom Hearts 3D|DreamDropDistance}}'' are either this or the standard sort of cute (The [[TheGoomba Meow Wow]] being the prime example of the former). If their appearance doesn't get you to find them cute, then their downright adorable reactions to being pet and fed most likely will.
* Surprisingly, Painwheel from ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}''. Take a look at her [[http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m1ua2k1Ys21qkjvv3o1_1280.png without her mask on]]. She also appears maskless in the [[spoiler:Story Mode endings of Filia and Valentine]]. When she smiles, she's creepy ''and'' adorable!
* A lot of the monsters in the 3D ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' games are of this nature if they aren't just standard cute things.
* ''VideoGame/{{Medievil}}'' and ''VideoGame/PlaystationAllStarsBattleRoyale'' has Sir Daniel.
* Mujoe (a.k.a. Mr. Meanie) from the ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' series.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Avernum}}'' series has the GIFTS, a race of cheerful, childlike [[TheDitz ditzes]] who all talk in squeaky voices and think you're really neat. And happen to be giant spiders.
* The zombies in ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies''. Wall-eyed, lopsided, with snaggle teeth and endearingly {{Narm}}-y voices. They've been very successfully merchandised as a result of this trope, with several sets of plushies and vinyl figures.
* [[VideoGame/WheresMyWater Swampy]] and his sewer gator buddies.
* ''VideoGame/CharlieMurder'' is drawn in a style where nearly everyone evokes this.
* ''VideoGame/{{Gish}}'' has this as its dominant aesthetic. The player and enemy characters have stylized round shapes and big eyes, which makes them oddly charming despite being neither brightly colored nor innocuous-looking.
* In ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', if a villager isn't classically cute, it's ugly cute. [[SugarBowl It's that kind of game.]]
