A teddy bear, or any other cute plush animal from your childhood just earned a place in your worst nightmares by killing/being used to kill people. Sometimes caused by a SealedEvilInATeddyBear.

* ''Anime/DirtyPairFlash'': [[BitchInSheepsClothing Murderous Monica]], aka [[RedBaron "The Pink Sniper"]], is a teen assassin with a stuffed teddy bear named Mr. Mackie. She uses it as a portable [[HammerSpace weapons cache]], which includes everything from her hair dryer to a laser gun, hand grenades, and an acidic bubble blower among other things.

* The psychic children in ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' first attack Tetsuo after forming a giant teddy bear and other toys out of debris. It's a lot creepier than it sounds.
* The [[EnfantTerrible Ankle]] [[CreepyChild Biters]] from ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' use a teddy Medabot appropriately called [[FluffyTheTerrible Churlybear]]. Churlybear looks harmless enough until its owners are provoked into Robattle, at which point [[GlowingEyesOfDoom its eyes light up]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning with sinister red]]... [[CurbStompBattle and much asskicking ensues]]. The Medabot can use several extremely powerful explosive blasts, but its signature move is a [[GravityMaster gravity beam]] that can completely negate an opponent's speed and agility while throwing it around like a helpless doll - if this attack hits, the battle is pretty much over ([[HoistByHisOwnPetard Unless, like Spyke, you get extremely lucky...]])

* The [[LaResistance Free Kingdomers]] in the ''Literature/AlcatrazSeries'' disguise their grenades as teddy bears, the logic being that the enemy shouldn't know to run away from their weapons.

* Plenty of cute-looking toylike Franchise/{{Pokemon}} can still viciously attack you.

Teddiursa looks even more like a teddy bear, and while it's not very strong it does evolve into the significantly less huggable [[BearsAreBadNews Ursaring]]. In Gen 6, there's Pancham, a little panda bear cub, who grows up into the vicious yet honorable Pangoro, which stands a full head taller than an Ursaring.

* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'' has the Bonta Bearadda, a [[MadeOfEvil Darker]] in the form of a cutesy, pastel-colored teddy bear that's notable for being completely passive initially, simply standing still and constantly turning to face you as you move about.

* Reynardine of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is trapped in a stuffed wolf, and [[KidWithTheLeash under Antimony's control]], but can transform into a life-sized and quite menacing wolf when he feels the need. ''And'' he's stuffed full of lockpicks he likes to use like sharp implements.

Over many regiftings and falls from a meteor has been transformed into a patchwork cyborg rabbit ([[RedEyesTakeWarning complete with mismatched glowing red/green eyes]]).

[[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/despire.htm Despire]], for instance, is a very creepy living teddy bear, who works both as a toy and a killing machine, and can psychically switch others' positive emotions to negative and vice-versa, an ability which is intended to calm unruly children but works great for combat as well:
--> ''Attackers may find themselves only giggling as the monster slices into them with its retractable bone-blades, usually aiming for the belly or [[GroinAttack groin]].''
* Flippy from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' is not a stuffed animal, but because of the [[GrotesqueCute deceptively cutesy]] style of the cartoon, has the proportions and general look of a teddy bear.
* Because the creator of ''WebVideo/VaguelyRecallingJoJo'' can't recall what Empress and Ebony Devil look like in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', they look like this.
* ''WebVideo/FiveSecondFilms'': In "[[http://5secondfilms.com/watch/secret_admirer/ Secret Admirer]]", Kelsey finds out that she has a secret admirer who sends her a stuffed teddy bear to sleep with... but it turns out that [[StalkerWithACrush the bear is in fact the admirer]].
* Huggles T. Bear in Literature/{{Zoofights}} is what happens when unscrupulous scientists take a [[BearsAreBadNews grizzly bear]], equip it with WolverineClaws and a [[FrickinLaserBeams chest laser]] (obviously as a parody of the [[Franchise/CareBears Care Bear Stare]]), and send the poor thing to fight other abominations to promote a toy company.
