[[caption-width-right:250:[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotoplanes Isn't it adorable?]]]]

UglyCute is what happens when a creature that isn't exactly "attractive" somehow manages to be adorable. Normally, these little guys still have some kind of stereotypical "cute" traits, like oversized eyes or a fat little body.

And then, there's ''these guys.'' They're scary, and meant to be... and they ''still'', somehow, manage to be ''adorable.'' These little guys may sport CuteLittleFangs, be {{Mooks}} for the resident BigBad, or hail from a HalloweenTown-flavored setting.

Compare and contrast UglyCute and KillerRabbit. May overlap with either AdorableEvilMinions or CreepyGood. See also {{Gonk}}.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Ciel from ''Manga/BlackButler'' is your typical CreepyChild yet many find him to be cute.
** Undertaker is one of the creepiest characters in the series. He's also one of the most endearing, and he has many fangirls who find him adorable.
* ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' has Seiko Kimura. A tall woman with WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises, who speaks in CreepyMonotone and wears a mask over her mouth. Nonetheless, she is loved by the fans, who deem her design adorable and especially her younger versions are absolutely adorable.
* Neferpitou from ''Manga/HunterXHunter''. Adorably catlike, yet we see them play with the dead heads of their victims and turn dead people into puppets. Also the fact that they're well... evil. Their design itself could even count as cute in a scary way.
* Kukuru from ''{{Manga/Joshiraku}}'' is this during her more sane moments.
* What fangirls think of [[MadScientist Dr. Stein]] from ''Manga/SoulEater''. It's also the main reason his younger self is a OneSceneWonder.
** To say nothing of [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Crona]].
** And Medusa when in possession of Rachel.
* Either Russia or Belarus from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', depending on the fans you're talking to.
* In ''Anime/MarginalNumber4'', adorable IdolSinger twins L and R [[ItMakesSenseInContext pretend to be possessed by demons]] on a hidden camera show. This is the result.
* Shino Aburame from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''; like all the Aburame, his body is a hive for mutualistic beetles, but he's one of the good guys and sulks when people forget him. Taken UpToEleven in fan-works.
** Orochimaru and Nagato when they were younger also count, considering both would grow to be well...less than friendly characters the two qualified here tragically.
* Shouko from ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts''. Her crush on Yuuji and her ways [[AbhorrentAdmirer to come on to him]] is downright creepy, but you can't deny that she is pretty cute.
* Juvia Lockser from ''Manga/FairyTail'' is this a lot during the series. The creepy part of her is usually when she's calm or insulted by the cast, but whenever she's around Gray her adorable side comes out in the form of infatuation which sadly gets ignored most of the time.
* The titular ''Manga/FrankenFran'' is an assembled corpse girl complete with a stitched together GlasgowGrin. Even after seeing what happens to most of [[BodyHorror her]] [[AndIMustScream patients]] one can't help but feel endeared by her positive outlook and adorable personality.
* In ''Amime/{{Pokemon}}'', some of Team Rocket's pokémon can count as this. Of particular note is Jessie's Pumpkaboo[=/=]Gourgeist in the XY series.
* Tomoko Kuroki from ''Manga/NoMatterHowILookAtItItsYouGuysFaultImNotPopular'' is this out of awkwardness and shyness. Though she tries to be CreepyAwesome by proving, she can handle people (which she fails a lot at by the way). Her jealous and deranged inner self, comes off more adorable than anything truly malevolent.

* ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}} from ''ComicBook/XMen'', and his animated incarnations. He physically resembles a demon, but he has this fun-loving personality that is hard not to love.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Old Lace is a Deinonychus who's fully capable of ripping someone to shreds, but her original depiction, with her big eyes and lanky body, makes her so endearing.
* Curtis and Erik from ComicBook/CreatureFeature. Despite being cannibalistic and the former is a werewolf and sometimes reanimate the dead, the two are fun-loving PerkyGoths, and it's adorable.
** Dani is also this when she's not in her StalkerWithACrush mode.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan fictions that are meant to be horrifying or gory can fall squarely into this territory instead. It's just the effect that, say, a serial killer who happens to be an adorable pastel-colored little pony named Cookie Crumble can have.
* [[https://derpiboo.ru/tags/artist-colon-badumsquish Badumsquish,]] when he's not making the weirdest damned NSFW stuff you ever saw, has turned out some very strange creations that fall squarely into this territory. It probably helps that he is a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan artist whose style is almost identical to the show. So far he's made a [[https://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=artist%3Abadumsquish%2C+bed+bug&commit=Go bed bug,]] [[https://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=artist%3Abadumsquish%2C+alp-luachra&commit=Go a stomach parasite,]] and a [[https://derpiboo.ru/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sbq=artist%3Abadumsquish%2C+oc%3Acuddlhu&commit=Go sentient hive-minded mass of naughty tentacles that have infested a pony costume named Cuddlhu]] all adorable. The latter is an intentional example, which comes with a story where "she" is basically TheWoobie that [[IJustWantToBeLoved only wants companionship]].
* A kid Nui from ''Fanfic/MaimDeMaim'' may not look creepy, however, she is this in terms of her behavior (the whole entire "violence is normal" and being sadistic thing) , until she [[spoiler: ''skinned'' a girl alive]] that is.

* In ''{{Film/Critters}}'', the title critters are little balls of fur with big eyes... and teeth that would make a shark feel insecure.
* [[Creator/TimBurton Tim Burton's]] (and [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Henry Selick's]], for that matter) stop-motion films would certainly count. Case in point: Sparky from ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'', a bull-terrier who's been stitched together and brought back to life via electricity after getting killed by a car.
* ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania''. She's 118, can turn into a bat (albeit a very adorable one), crawl on walls, can't go out during the day, and has no reflection, but otherwise, young Mavis appears to be a normal, sweet teenage girl.
* ''Film/MenInBlack'': Congratulations, Reg, it's a ... squid."
* ''Film/ShinGodzilla'' has the larval Godzillas, the first on-screen form being an armless two-legged pollywog resembling a frilled shark (affectionately dubbed "Kamata-kun" by the Japanese fandom) that scrapes itself along through the city streets and continuously bleeds through the gills in its neck

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Fourth Doctor from ''Series/DoctorWho'' was intended as this. GothicHorror tropes? NightmareFetishist? CheshireCatGrin? CreepyBlueEyes? All yes. GeniusSweetTooth ManChild with ImmortalImmaturity, cheeky little {{Character Tic}}s, [[PerkyGoth an unreserved love of gothic horror stuff]] and InnocentBlueEyes? Also all yes. Creator/TomBaker, when asked to describe his Doctor in one word, said "adorable". Creator/StevenMoffat pointed out that the Fourth Doctor is one of the most scary, difficult-to-handle Doctors of the lot. Creator/TerranceDicks felt that he was the Doctor (out of the first five) most likely to turn towards evil. It isn't mutually exclusive.
*** The Fourth Doctor's love of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Jelly Babies]] is used to encapsulate this. They're tasty sweets enjoyed by children in Britain, but at the end of the day, he EatsBabies (pointed out by Leela in "The Face of Evil"). The Telos Novella ''Ghost Ship'' even contains a scene where he talks with a NightmareFetishist character about what Jelly Babies are actually made of - solidified with boiled bones, dyed blood red with crushed beetles...
** [[LittleGreenManInACan Daleks]]. Horrifying [[ScaryDogmaticAliens space racists]] and the most evil creatures in the universe, but due to being rather short with stubby 'arms', just anthropomorphic enough in movements and mannerisms to feel endearing, occasionally written as TheGrotesque or even TheWoobie and sometimes even a bit wobbly thanks to SpecialEffectFailure, they can be adorable.
*** MascotMook monsters as they are, TheMerch often plays this up - cuddly toy Daleks, talking Dalek birthday cards ("CE-LE-BRAAATE!"), Dalek {{Sexy Whatever Outfit}}s...
*** "The Space Museum" has a Dalek in it that Vicki finds cute (much to the disgust of her companions).
*** The [[MoralityChip Human Factor]] Daleks in "Evil of the Daleks" act like small children, chase each other around, play 'trains' (with the Doctor supplying a train whistle sound on his recorder) and 'Dizzy Doctor' (where they spin the Doctor around until he gets dizzy), and have much gentler voices with a lot more expression.
*** The tea-making "Ironside" in "Victory of the Daleks" is positively adorable.
*** The Emojibots from "Smile".
* Young, pre-supervillainy Ed Nygma in ''Series/{{Gotham}}''. On the one hand, eccentrically {{adorkable}} and reasonably good-looking in a [[CuteGlassesBoy nerdy sort of way]]. On the other, even before his SanitySlippage he's a NightmareFetishist with boundary issues.
* Parker from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' is a very pretty, [[CloudCuckooLander quirky]] young woman who believes in Santa, and is also something of a {{Woobie}} thanks to her DarkAndTroubledPast. She's also one of the more ruthless team members and has a penchant for saying disturbing things.

* Made Out of Babie's "Sugar".

* The creature in [[http://www.richpicks.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/postcard_03.jpg this]] sleep paralysis image.

* [[http://i.imgur.com/7VV9FIk.jpg Little Miss No Name]] is an example where the "creepy" part was unintentional. This Hasbro doll was intended as an object of pity and compassion for little girls, as opposed to the vast majority of dolls which were mostly based around WishFulfillment. However, the empty soul-staring eyes of the doll made most children more terrified of it than anything else. You will find quite a few adults, however, who do find Little Miss No Name cute.
* Furbies, particularly the [[https://bloggingpr.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/furby.jpg original versions]] from the 90's. Prior to their being given digital eyes and more developed animation circuitry.

* Tonberries from the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' franchise. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuUfgSYPoPk See an example of their behavior.]] They're tiny little critters, who don't attack first. Instead, they wait. And wait. And wait for you to attack and give it your best shot, creeping closer until they stab you with their knives. And yet, their small size (usually, though even the big ones are cute), big eyes, and reptilian features rather than being a scary point, is downright adorable.
** The [[SavePoint Save-Moogle]] on the world map of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': while he acts like a normal Moogle usually, if you call and dismiss him over and over again, he starts to get annoyed, then angry, and then (eventually) threateningly states '''"I'm sharpening my knife, kupo..."'''
* Boos of the ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' series. They're roundish little {{Bedsheet Ghost}}s with a mouthful of fangs and beady eyes. They also stick their tongues out like {{Bratty Half Pint}}s, and let out a hilariously high-pitched cackle when they spot you.
* [[CreepyChild The]] [[CryingLittleKid Witch]] from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'', who was intended as the scariest zombie of them all, but receives a lot of love and fanart from the base.
* Creepers from ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''. They look like screaming zombie cacti, but they're pretty much the [[MascotMook game's mascot.]] You can even buy [[http://www.jinx.com/p/minecraft_creeper_plush_toy_with_sound.html?catid&s=minecraft Creeper plushies]] that go "SSSSSSSSSSSS" when you squeeze them.
* Flandre Scarlet from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', who is a cute girl with crystalline wings, and also a mentally unstable vampire and a PersonOfMassDestruction who has a high chance of blowing you to smithereens ''without even trying''.
* ''VideoGame/MapleStory'': Zombie Mushrooms, Death Teddies, heck, half the undead creatures qualify as do the aliens. Particularly unsettling in the case of the Death Teddies; they're built in a factory that specializes in animated plush toys, and robots seem to be assigned to work on this project. At the lower levels, one can assume that such toys have been discarded due to their beat up appearance, and whatever animated them has warped the toys horribly turning them into undead monsters. [[FridgeHorror Let this sink in for awhile]], then look at how cute these things still are despite having giant ghosts on their back.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has Taokaka (and the other Kaka, especially the kittens); Personality-wise she's your typical GenkiGirl CatGirl, who just happens to wear a hood with only glowing eyes and MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily visible.
** Carl Clover might also count as an InUniverse example, since he's an adorable preteen boy (in the flashbacks, Makoto had a habit of hugging him) with a great deal of TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour.
* Some of the notable creatures you can encounter in ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' fit. [[http://yumenikki.wikia.com/wiki/Uboa Uboa]], for example, is an event that can only be triggered by flicking the lights on and off in a specific room with an NPC. While jarring, it's still somewhat cute in its own way, with its big grin and EyesAlwaysShut. There's also [[http://yumenikki.wikia.com/wiki/Monoko Monoko,]] a girl you can encounter in a tunnel. She looks like your average [[GirlishPigtails pigtailed]] schoolgirl. [[BodyHorror Then you use the stoplight effect...]]
* The Judge from ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'' counts, in many fans' eyes. He's a white cat who can [[TalkingAnimal talk]] (quite articulately, in fact), his verbal tic is a soft purring noise, and he's easily distracted by cat food. But then you see his [[CheshireCatGrin giant fangs, arched in a smile]]...
* [[SoulPower Ghost-types]] from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' are supposed to be scary or at least unsettling in-universe, but a lot of the unevolved forms appear to be {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s. Such examples include Misdreavus, Shuppet, Duskull, Drifloon, Litwick, Phantump and Pumpkaboo.
** Hydreigon is a three-headed dragon Pokemon that's specifically noted by the Pokedex as being scary looking, which is rather hard to deny, with it sporting two prominent pairs of fangs, [[BlackEyesOfCrazy huge black and red eyes on its main head]], and spiky-looking frills on each head. However, it still manages to be strangely adorable, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iT74YUwToWU particularly when it smiles and does happy dances]].
** Mimikyu is ''some'' sort of horrifying abomination that is so awful to look upon that researchers pass out from the shock, with a true form of which only glimpses are shown (of long, shadowy arms and a horrific cackling voice). This is because it spends its whole life wearing an amateurish Pikachu costume [[IJustWantToBeLoved in the hope that people will love it]].
* The Poes from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''. They're ghosts who are pretty malevolent, but they have an adorable, high-pitched cackle, much like the Boos. Also like Boos, their laugh is a sped up version of the final boss's laugh.
* The animatronics from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. Once you get desensitised enough to their JumpScare tactics, and find the in-game hints about what [[TragicMonster they]] [[PoweredByAForsakenChild actually]] [[WasOnceAMan are]], it's hard not to feel a bit sorry for them.
** The most extreme example is probably the 'Freddles' from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'', which are tiny, creepy wobbling plush toys with many sharp teeth and GlowingEyesOfDoom... But they're so [[FunSize adorable]].
* Bebedora from the third Arc the Lad game, known as Twilight of the Spirits. She's a child-like monster whose face is never revealed beneath her hat, and who calls on the powers of darkness to possess and control enemies---but who also has a child's curiousity and affinity for play. Her weapons are stuffed animals with which she slaps the enemy.
* Pretty much all the ghosts ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'' are this. The GiantSpider that serves as the first Boss is kind of Creepy Cute too once it is freed from DemonicPossession.
* The infamous, Blizzeta boss battle from ''VideoGame/TwilightPrincess'' so sweet, so cute...so freaky.
* Many creatures and even some of the playable characters of ''VideoGame/DontStarve'' fall under this, but special mention goes to omnipresent spiders which are frightening and surprisingly hostile to whoever happens to pass close to their dens at dusk, but are at the same time terribly cute, especially performing their [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/dont-starve-game/images/c/c4/Spider.jpg "cower" animation]] in fear of being struck back... and speaking of spiders, the playable character that best exemplifies the "Creepy Cute" part of them must be Webber: at first glance he looks like a terrifying humanoid spider, with legs coming out of his head and a mouth full of fangs... but then when he speaks you realize he's a young boy trapped inside a spider in a weird symbiotic relationship. He shows a lot of curiosity and uses childish terms for many things.
* In [[{{TRIOfFriendshipAndMadness}} TRI: Of Friendship and Madness]], you'll almost never run into another living creature within the Odd Gods' World - well, until you get to the ''Prisons'' chapter. Lurking inside breakable pots in a single room are little four-legged 'Eye Bug' creatures which might be startling to some - they resemble spiders, and as their name suggests, have one big eye in the center of their head. They're actually harmless, and you'll have to make use of them to solve a puzzle.
* Several monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' qualify, but Muffet stands out. Aww, what a cute spider girl! Who wants to eat you!
* [[http://www.mystwiki.com/wiki/File:PBird.jpg This critter]] from ''VideoGame/MystVEndOfAges'' qualifies, mostly because of the cute honking sounds it makes and its silly way of walking.
* The antagonists of ''Videogame/OneNightAtFlumptys'' tend to be rather silly and adorable when roaming around the building, and [[NightmareFace not drastically changing their face when attacking you]]. Special mention goes to Flumpty, who even does a mocking "peekaboo" before draining your exposure meter in the sequel.
* The Little Sisters from ''Series/BioShock'' are five year old little girls in cute dresses who just want to run around play. They also have glowing eyes, have not had a bath in quite a while, and drink blood from corpses. (Saving or killing them is a gameplay mechanic) The Little Sisters and their protectors (the Big Daddies, specifically the Bouncer type) are SeriesMascot .
* Most players of ''VideoGame/{{Tattletail}}'' will agree that the main Tattletail is adorable despite being somewhat creepy. Notably, Creator/SrPelo suffered from CutenessProximity upon seeing him for the first time!
* Some ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' enemies tend to be seen as cute by fans when they are not trying to reduce you to a bloody pulp. Some of the most notable examples are the Houndeyes and the Bullsquids.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* From ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'', we have Viola Cadaverini, a young woman who is not only cute and pretty, but also ''very'' creepy.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&list=LLPxH9k8iNoJgFTRg-nJFs-w&v=iJuR7AtroMA#t=219 The Blue Badger,]] anyone? Seems to be more of a NightmareFuel in-universe.
* Maria, a 9 year old girl who speaks and acts like she's 5, has this feel in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' − moreso in the sound novel where she has sleepy eyes… [[CuteAndPsycho her cute part is intermittent though.]]
* The developer of the visual novel ''Love At First Sight'' has actually chosen the name Creepy Cute. In fact the love interest from this game can be also considered that, being a {{Cyclops}}... but this is mostly a gimmick because it's a very standard romance. The art style of the whole game is also creepy but cute according to several gamers.
* All of the love interests in ''VisualNovel/StarstruckLove'' will fall under this at some point, particularly in the Extreme Love End.

* The monsters from ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' are [[http://yafgc.net/comic/0020-bonehead/ more]] UglyCute than they are this. With the possible exception of [[http://yafgc.net/comic/1378-cadugan-in-trouble/ Jone]].
* In ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', drowolath may see demons this way. Especially [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=6503 Discordia]] and the second glutton ([[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=7808 megaspoiler]]).
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' frequently employs this as an art style. [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/support.html Even on its donation page]].
* ''Webcomic/TryingHuman'' has Hue, a [[TheGreys Grey alien]] that manages to be [[http://introducingemy.deviantart.com/art/TH-Puppers-177816932?q=gallery%3Aintroducingemy%2F378704&qo=137 SO ADORABLE]] and yet is meant to be creepy. Also, most notably, the Reptoids. Meant to be human-eating lizard monsters, but come on, they are so freaking cute, especially Quazky. Reptoids come complete with CuteLittleFangs, which are meant to look evil, but somehow manage not to. At all. [[http://introducingemy.deviantart.com/gallery/378704?offset=24#/d488cdw Your average Trying Human reptoids, in all their adorableness.]]
* Many, many creatures of ''Webcomic/{{Zoophobia}}'' come off as this. Take [[http://lgm.cl/tvtropes/staticimages/perci_6409.png Perci]], for example.
* This trope is a staple of [[Webcomic/BloodyUrban Bloody Urban's]] art style- most of the monster characters are fairly silly-looking while still retaining their spookiness.
* The titular character of ''Webcomic/{{Erma}}'' is the cutest little StringyHairedGhostGirl [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/ERMA-Issue-1-457040417 you'll ever see]].
* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' has several of these. The main antagonist, Dr. Phage, is an enormous bacteriophage posing as a surgeon, with a clueless attitude that makes people adore him, and a love of ducks. A dried, human-sized blood stain found on hospital sheets is also quite endearing, due in large part to [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/014.html a scene with a cupcake]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Paranatural}}'' has plenty of spirits that are a mix of creepy and cute. Though special mention goes to [[UndeadChild P.J.]], the ghost boy that idolizes Max's "hero lifestyle" and hopes to be a hero himself. It's been so long since he last smiled that his smile ends up being rather disturbing.
* ''Webcomic/OutOfPlacers'' has Yannit the Indrel, who looks like [[http://www.valsalia.com/comic/prologue/24/ a humanoid ant-mantis-thing]] and still manages to be [[http://www.valsalia.com/comic/out-of-placers/oops-68/ totally adorable]].

* ''RolePlay/TheDoomyAdventuresOfIrkenDoominess'': has two psychopathic female Irkens named Gar and Melissa who are insanely creepy, yet quite adorable.
* Many of Music/DoctorSteel's toys (the Buzzsaw Baby, Psycho Sally, Polly Pukes-A-Lot, the Rabies Babies line, etc.) fall into this category.
* [[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6841887/horror-movie-daycare "Horror Movie Daycare,"]] by Website/CollegeHumor, is a daycare centre for every child, no matter how eldritch, demon-inhabited or undead. For story-time their minder reads from the Necronomicon.
-->"[[Film/TheExorcist Reagan]] - Reagan, stop, you're going to make yourself dizzy."
* Many people consider the [[http://wiki.loadingreadyrun.com/Creepy_Doll Creepy Doll]] from ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun'' to be very cute, and also psychologically creepy. While he'd appeared in previous videos, it was when he showed up in [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/loadingreadyrun/1877-The-Arms-Race "The Arms Race"]] that people really started to like him. Then, when Harry, the giant Creepy Doll, [[http://wiki.loadingreadyrun.com/Santa_Secrets later appeared to torment Graham,]] both factors leaped up significantly.
** Harry's cuteness is also a factor of him being significant in ''WebVideo/DesertBusForHope'', since he was an adorable friend for crew to hang out with during the marathon.
** Harry's DistaffCounterpart Harriet ends up slightly on the cuter end of the spectrum than the creepy end. Though, both are extremely creepy in [[http://youtu.be/z2hnlbMmro4 this Crapshot.]]
* Pretty much all of the [[CreepyChild SCP children]] from the ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', such as [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-053 SCP-053,]] [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-239 SCP-239]] and [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-134 SCP-134.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Changelings are shape-shifting {{Emotion Eater}}s that look like pony-shaped BigCreepyCrawlies...and they're absolutely adorable, complete with CuteLittleFangs. So much so that the colorful "ascended changelings" that appear after ''To Where And Back Again'' that lack most of said creepy crawly attributes are ''less'' cute.
** Flutterbat from the episode "Bats!"
** Pinkie Pie's straight-haired, unstable, alter ego (dubbed "Pinkamena" by fans) is as huggable as she is disturbing. It helps that she's TheWoobie by nature, since Pinkie only turns into her when she's very depressed.
** The Sphinx from ''Daring Done?'' is aggressive, villainous, giant, and has sharp yellowed teeth and slit eyes. Yeah, it's just ''not'' possible to make a half-cat half-pony anything less than adorable, particularly in the show's cute art style, and especially when fan artists started [[https://trixiebooru.org/1498451 playing]] [[https://trixiebooru.org/1507383 up]] [[https://trixiebooru.org/1533003 her]] [[https://trixiebooru.org/1535518 feline]] [[https://trixiebooru.org/1545929 attributes]].
* [[http://raikoh14.deviantart.com/art/Scraplets-198095295 The Scraplets]] from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime''. Sure, they look all cute if you're an organic, with their big eyes and little limbs, and they're calm and relaxed. But put a Cybertronian in their path, [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily and the teeth come out]]...
* [[TeleportersAndTransporters Breach]] from ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex''. A pale teenager with a school uniform, two sets of arms ([[CreepilyLongArms With two of them being bigger than they should]]), and a train of thought that makes her creepily endearing (One episode has her send Rex to another dimension to make him part of her "dollhouse"). But has a childlike attitude, suffers from an incredible case of WhenSheSmiles and all in all is just a lonely kid [[IJustWantToHaveFriends trying to make friends]] (Not so effectively mind you, but still). [[spoiler:[[HeelFaceTurn Changing sides also helps]]]].
* GIR and the titular Invader from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. Gaz's bedroom is also filled with stuffed animals, dolls, and other paraphernalia that fits this description.
* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' once featured a swarm of giant, hair-eating lice attacking the heroes' treehouse. Said lice were brightly colored and had rather expressive bug-eyes. Near the end of the episode, Numbah Two is covered in ''baby'' lice.
* The ginger kids from ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' all have eerie smiles and alabaster skin, but they take so much abuse before being drafted by Cartman into forming a hate group that you can't help but feel sorry for them.
* The ants from the ''WesternAnimation/TalesFromTheCryptKeeper'' episode ''Nature'', despite being drawn quite accurate to real life and seen up-close and personal from the perspective of two shrunken brothers, end up being ''really'' cute since they're {{The Woobie}}s of the episode whospend the whole episode protecting and caring for said brothers while struggling just to survive and get some food for the nest.
