Badass Adorable: Web Original
  • feralAncient, oceanRising, flintlockEnthusiast, familyFun for starters from Adult Stuck. Given most of the cast starts out at 11, this is probably to be expected.
  • Flippy from Happy Tree Friends.
  • Kid LeBron from The LeBrons.
  • In the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fangame Super Filly Adventure, this is what becomes of the main character Jade in the warrior ending. Essentially, she SOLO PWNS A DRAGON! With a MAGIC SPEAR..
  • Let's take My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, give it a grimdark spin, and make it into a Play By Post forum. This is what you get.
  • Yuki from The Return loves pink, glitter, colouring books, looks about 13-14ish, and she will fuck you up.
  • Jade Sinclair (Generator) of the Whateley Universe. Cute as a button, looks like she's only eleven... and has scared the holy <censored> out of violent villains like Bloodwolf and Killstench. Bloodwolf controls a werewolf spirit and likes hurting people. He got stapled to a tree with railroad spikes. Do not make Generator mad at you. And then there's the Syndicate hardsite she destroyed... after being tortured nearly to death, stabbed through the heart, then gives herself CPR and plays dead until her regen kicks in, then she goes about killing half the base herself with jagged metal objects and raising her victims as "zombies". It starts to cross the line into Grotesque Cute, really.
  • In Dave Madson's Looney Tunes Intro Bloopers, Microsoft Anna is portrayed as a beautiful 25-ish year old woman with laser eye powers that are often used to defeat logos that scare Microsoft Sam.
  • Rebecca Stone from Demo Reel. Sweet and pretty, but will slam your head into something hard if you're sexist to her or just outright beat you to death if you hurt her friends.
  • Ruby Rose from RWBY is a deadly fighter who can effortlessly slaughter her way through hordes of monsters using Crescent Rose, a sniper rifle/scythe hybrid that is known as one of the most dangerous weapons ever designed. That said, whenever she opens her mouth, especially when she's frustrated or excited, she's a sweet little girl who is as adorable as a box of kittens.
    • From the same series, Nora Valkyrie. She's bright, peppy and cheerful with just about everything she does, including pounding Grimm to death with a grenade launcher/hammer.
    • Every female character in RWBY is this trope to a lesser extent. Jaune as well. It could be said that RWBY is not just a World of Badass, but a World of Badass Adorable.
  • Bee from Bee and Puppycat. It's a rare Magical Girl that will immediately lunge at a monster and then start attacking it with her teeth. And win.
    • Puppycat also qualifies, thanks to his ability to incinerate that same monster, but might take issue with being called adorable.
