->'''Jayne:''' Captain, can you stop her from bein' cheerful, please?\\
'''Mal:''' I don't believe there is a power in the 'verse that can stop Kaylee from being cheerful. Sometimes you just wanna duct tape her mouth and dump her in the hold for a month.\\

-->-- ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', "[[Recap/FireflyE01Serenity Serenity]]"

The Cutie is a character who is known for being sweet and lovable, more comic relief than anything, who likes nothing more than to pet little puppies. They make you adore them, root for them and love them. Or they can [[TastesLikeDiabetes make your teeth rot]].

They are known for being [[WideEyedIdealist very idealistic]], cute and innocent. Some of them even may act in a childlike manner to emphasize their innocence with an upbeat and positive attitude. They also tend to be genuinely nice, [[TheFourLoves loving]], caring, and kind to whoever is with them. They tend to take the most peaceful solution to a conflict and hardly ever (if ever) harm others in any way (though you really ought to [[BewareTheNiceOnes watch]] [[BadassAdorable out]]). They're [[FemalesAreMoreInnocent most often female]], though younger boys can also be this.

Their innocence and purity draws the sympathy of the audience for them. For this reason they tend to become TheWoobie when [[BreakTheCutie bad things happen to them]].

Related to BreakTheCutie, KillTheCutie, TheFakeCutie, and CorruptTheCutie, but if these things happen they don't need to be mentioned here. Compare {{Moe}}, ThePollyanna, and AllLovingHero. Also referred to as a "Cinnamon Roll" in the slang of some media fandom circles.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'':
** Chiyo Mihama seems to exist for the sole purpose of having everyone fawn over her. Not that we can blame them, since calling Chiyo "cute" amounts to calling the ocean big.
** Osaka, in a sense, being a curious, sweet, (relatively) innocent {{cloudcuckoolander}} with big lovable eyes and a soft voice. Especially when she's eating sata andagi.
* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'': Nene is the youngest member of the Knight Sabres, and is presented as [[GenkiGirl the cheerful, perky]] member of the team who's always concerned about her weight, because of her insatiable SweetTooth.
* ''Anime/BeybladeBurst'': Valt Aoi is a total cutie pie from the bottom to the tippy top.
* ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'':
** Tomoyo has [[SchoolgirlLesbians obvious fondness]] for Sakura and is near infallibly charming and innocent.
** Sakura herself leans more and more into this as the series goes on as she's earnest and friendly. Tomoyo makes sure she fits this trope by making her darling costumes. (If Syaoran is involved expect a LuminescentBlush).
* [[RobotGirl Chi]] from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' is one of the cutest animé characters ever made. Not only is she [[BeautyEqualsGoodness absolutely gorgeous]], she is unbelievably innocent and sweet. Add the fact that she has the mind of an innocent baby [[spoiler: (she's a persocom whose memories were erased and so she has to relearn everything)'']], and her saying "Chi?" at least eight times per episode and you have a serious overdose of cuteness in one lovable character.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Goku was pretty adorable in his youth, mainly as the result of Creator/AkiraToriyama[='s=] PuniPlush art style during the first five years of the manga's serialization. It helped that Goku was also pretty dimwitted, which gave him his trademark [[{{Adorkable}} adorkability]] and naivety, two traits that helped compliment his huggable appearance as a child.
** Goten as kid was well mannered, naïve, and dorky.
** Krilin's daughter, Marron. A sweet little girl.
** Pan as a four-year-old was cute and bubbly and full of energy. She's more tomboyishly cute in GT.
* ''Manga/GhostTalkersDaydream'': Ai is very similar to [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Momo Hinamori]], and was such a [[TheWoobie Woobie]] that she drew out [[IJustWantToBeNormal Misaki's]] [[BigBrotherInstinct 'big sister']] [[http://www.mangapark.com/manga/ghost-talker-s-daydream/v2/c5/3-3 instinct.]]
* ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'':
** Alice is a 7-year-old when the world as they once knew it [[http://www.citymanga.com/highschool_of_the_dead/chapter-7/41/ is overrun by "them"]]. In spite of this, she's eternally cheerful (or tries to be), [[http://www.citymanga.com/highschool_of_the_dead/chapter-9/21/ even when she's terrified]]. But [[http://www.citymanga.com/highschool_of_the_dead/chapter-9/27/ the thought of being alone again]] scares her even more than "they" do.
** Asami was a newly assigned patrol officer, who was presented as cheerful, perky, and [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11328-12/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-18.html eager to make a good impression.]] Her inexperience was apparent, which made her [[http://www.mangareader.net/170-11329-20/high-school-of-the-dead/chapter-19.html endearing as a character.]]
* ''Manga/MakenKi'':
** Kimi is the manga's primary example, given she's petite, shy, and she's such an otaku that her [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c004/29.html "Comic Star" ability]] is [[RealityWarper based on her imagination]] and derives its power [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c004/31.html from her love of manga and cosplay.]]
** Inaho styles her hair in a short pair of bobbles that [[LittleBitBeastly look like animal ears]], and has a perpetual CatSmile. While she's a capable fighter, she mainly serves as the series' [[PluckyComicRelief plucky comic]] [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c018/12.html relief]] and is often used to cut dramatic tension.
** Celia is {{fun personified}}, which has endeared her to her legions of fans, as she's [[IdolSinger a teen idol.]] And she's so {{moe}}, that she has [[ExoticEyeDesigns heart shaped irises]] and her speech bubbles [[SayItWithHearts also have hearts]] [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c048/22.html in them]] -- ''[[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c070/12.html even when she's angry!]]''
* ''Anime/NadiaTheSecretOfBlueWater'': Marie was taken in by Jean and Nadia and essentially becomes their ward, [[spoiler: since her parents were killed by Gargoyle's soldiers]]. Grandis and her gang also take a shine to her, with Sanson acting as her big brother figure [[spoiler: (and eventually husband, when she grows up)]].
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Hinata Hyuuga in Part I of the story, being [[NiceGirl extremely kind and sweet]], [[ProperLady polite]], [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] and [[FanOfUnderdog having a crush on Naruto]]. [[spoiler: Her own daughter with Naruto, Himawari, seems to be this to the next generation.]]
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has shown plenty of these, but Clemont's little sister Bonnie definitely qualifies the most for the main protagonists, being a sweet and adorable CheerfulChild who loves making new friends.
* ''Anime/ProjectAko'': C-ko Kotobuki is very cute, innocent, and very devoted to A-ko. She's also vulnerable and [[DistressedDamsel prone to being abducted.]]
* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'':
** Madoka Kaname is so adorable that Sayaka jokingly(?) declared that she couldn't let her become popular with boys.
** [[spoiler:Homura was originally an {{Adorkable}} version of this in the original timeline; glasses, pigtails, kind yet unsure of herself, etc. The contrast with [[DarkMagicalGirl the version of her seen in the timeline depicted in the series]] is so stark the original timeline version is referred to as [[FanNickname "Moemura"]] to distinguish them.]]
* In ''Manga/SangatsuNoLion'', Hina's probably one of the cutest characters, [[CheerfulChild second only to her younger sister]]. She constantly approaches life with cheer, kindness, and optimism, despite the tragedy of losing her parents.
* Fujiwara from ''Manga/KaguyaSamaLoveIsWar'' is a cheerful, cute girl who wears a large bow on her hair. Every time she speaks, there are flower effects around her speech bubbles.
* Miyano from ''Manga/TanakaKunWaItsumoKedaruge'' is a CloudCookooLander GenkiGirl whose small size makes her look like a middle schooler or younger rather than a high school student. She's so cute that her attempt to be a cat demon for her class' haunted house fell flat because she came off as an adorable CatGirl instead of a vicious monster (this actually made the haunted house more popular).

* Bizarrely enough, Ron Funches; throughout his sets, he's always mellow, warm, and friendly, and it's not even much of an exaggeration of his natural self. Of course, he's the first to mention that [[TheStoner he smokes a lot of weed, too]].
-->"Oh, you like that giggle? [[GentleGiant Not used to a 300-pound black man that giggles like an Asian schoolgirl?]] I'm not a tough person."

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Betty Cooper from ''Franchise/ArchieComics'', a competitor for Archie's affections. Betty often takes time for caring about others especially nurturing Archie. In an episode, she had to excuse herself as she was tutoring elementary students at the local library. Veronica discovers this as spies on her thinking Archie was cheating on her.
* [[CheerfulChild Bode]] from ''ComicBook/LockeAndKey'' is six years old, CuriousAsAMonkey, and adorable. Whether he's experimenting with the newest magic Key he's found, looking for treasure in the pond (using a toy fishing rod he "invented himself"), or even wearing a pot on his head as a helmet when he's being attacked by shadow-creatures, he's just so cute.
* Molly Hayes and Klara Prast take turns being the Cutie among the ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', particularly when drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa or Humberto Ramos. The former is famous for her love of adorable little animal-themed hats and {{Malaproper}} tendencies, while the latter is almost always sweet and cheerful.
%%* Kitty Pryde and Jubilee from ''X-Men'' probably count.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/BabyBlues'': Started with Zoe, then Hammie and now Wren.


[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged'' portrays Rebecca as soft-spoken and so {{adorkable}}, that she actually starts to apologize when she thought a zombie was standing behind her. She was relieved to see it was only Chris, who soon develops [[BigBrotherInstinct a soft spot for her.]]
* ''FanFic/LunaLovegoodAndTheChamberOfInnocence'' by JadyneFarrow:
** Luna Lovegood is often seen this way, and does tend to act this way, by so many of the characters in the story, and it's also how she's seen in and out of canon by a lot of the fandom. Her open-mindedness, love for magical creatures, empathetic nature, and her kind heart often make her a fan favorite.
** Subverted by Dotty Pop. She's supposed to be cute and innocent, but [[spoiler:she knows she was assigned to be this way and is only faking it]].
* ''FanFic/NuttyForWonka'':
** Daisy Bloom, one of the Oompa-Loompas, is the only one to show any sort of kindness to Matilda; she's the only one who was willing to bring her food, calls her by her first name, and tells her that [[spoiler:her father isn't dead as Wonka claimed earlier]].

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' has Margo, Edith, and Agnes. Agnes, in particular, is the most innocent child to hit the screen in a long time, and she's ''adorable.''
* ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'':
** Snow White is very loveable and endearing, and her cuteness is purposefully emphasized nowadays in contrast to some of the most elegant or tough princesses.
** [[CuteMute Dopey]] was made to be cute. His namesake means he always has a grin on his face is acting silly.
** Bashful's shyness show how sincerely he loves people, such as how heavily he blushes when Snow white kisses him.
* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': Rapunzel. She's more cute than beautiful, and her mannerisms and personality make her the one of the most adorable Disney Princesses.
* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'':
** Judy Hopps. A partial example. She is loving, compassionate and idealistic but she is also intelligent, fiercely determined, and has the physical prowess to knock out a rhino.
** Benjamin Clawhauser: A rare adult male example. He's used mainly for comic relief and has a personality that is extremely sweet and innocent, cheerful, optimistic, and somewhat immature.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockDog'': Bodi is eternally optimistic, happy, and friendly to everyone he meets. He's good-natured and innocent and never questions another animal's character. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body and is never shown getting genuinely angry, and at no point is he snarky, salty, sarcastic or mean to anyone. Bodi is very determined and strong-willed, refusing to give up on his dream no matter the obstacles. However, his life in the quiet mountain village left him naïve and lacking knowledge of the rest of the world, which lead to him being fooled by animals who lie to him, sets his expectations too high, and is easily taken advantage of. When Angus Scattergood apologizes to Bodi for not giving him credit for the new song that they wrote together, Bodi forgives him.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Franchise/JamesBond'': Every now and then the women of the franchise fall into this. The best example is Ms. Caruso, the InnocentFanserviceGirl of Italian origin, caught in bed with Bond in the opening of ''Live And Let Die''.
* ''Literature/{{Pollyanna}}'' is all but the TropeNamer of ThePollyanna, an archetype which is used to describe irrepressibly cheerful characters. She lives in a town of bitter and angry people and slowly makes them cheery.
* ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'': A rare male example is awkward, stuttering Billy Bibbit. He's the most innocent, gentle character in the movie and one of the few non-Jerkasses[[spoiler:, which makes his suicide all the more tragic.]]
* ''Film/It2017'': Georgie, the little brother of Bill, is adorably innocent and sweet and loves his older brother so much he idolizes him. [[spoiler:Pennywise killing him just highlights how horrifically evil he really is.]]
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': This is how Charles is characterized in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' and ''Film/XMenApocalypse''. He's sweet, compassionate, naïve, peace-loving and cheerful. His PrettyBoy features highlight his childlike attributes, and he retains the puppyish enthusiasm that he had as a kid. Even the aloof and grumpy Erik [[DefrostingIceKing melts]] under Xavier's charm and affectionately labels him as "[[Film/XMenFirstClass adorable]]." Charles is given more comedic lines in ''Apocalypse'' than in previous movies to increase his {{Adorkable}} factor. His official temporary [[https://media.giphy.com/media/3o6ozmvFOsn1vvUcrS/giphy.gif emoji]] is modeled on the gleeful boyishness that Creator/JamesMcAvoy brings to the role. The younger Professor X is often called "bae" (which is an informal term for "baby") on Tumblr because he's so endearing.
%%* Creator/CharlieChaplin's most famous character--The Little Tramp. D'aw!

* ''Literature/KnightAndRogueSeries'': Michael manages to be this while also being the muscle, because he's so chivalrous and innocent that he can't even tell a white lie. [[{{Foil}} It helps that the other main character is a snarky con man]].
* ''Literature/WarriorCats'': Leafpool is one of the cutest kitties in the forest in terms of overall sweetness, next to Spottedleaf.
* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Mia is a pretty and sunny girl who likes giving hugs. She's chipper first thing in the morning, when Eric and Nolien are groggy.
* In ''Literature/TheElenium'', the [[PhysicalGod goddess Aphrael]] prefers to take on the physical form of a five-year-old girl, the better to wrap people (and gods) around her little finger. With 30,000 years of experience, she is ''very, very good'' at being an adorable five-year-old.
* April in ''Stranger & Stranger'' is the most cheerful and bubbly of all of Ainslee's friends, very much playing the opposite to [[IceQueen Shawna.]]
* Luna Lovegood in ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' is very idealistic and lovable, as well as arguably innocent.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
%%* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': The Groosalugg and Fred Burkle.
* Willow Rosenberg of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' due to the "shy bookworm" thing she had going on in the earlier seasons.
%%* Izzie from ''Series/MyMadFatDiary''.
%%* Grace Van Pelt on ''Series/TheMentalist''.
* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'':
** Raj in the early years. He was very shy, a CuteMute around women, and he has been described in-universe as "a cutie-pie".
** Bernadette is an adorable petite blonde with a squeaky voice. She's usually sweet and polite to everyone, [[BewareTheNiceOnes unless you make her angry.]]
%%* ''Series/{{Scandal}}'': Quinn and Huck.
%%* Chelsie Hightower fell into this role on ''Series/DancingWithTheStars''.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
** Downplayed with Lily. She's a kindergarten teacher, and very cute, short and bubbly (and she was a PerkyGoth in her younger days), but has a manipulative streak and she is far from innocent.
** Played straight with [[spoiler: the titular Mother. She's sweet, funny, {{Adorkable}}, and always upbeat.]]
* ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'': Merlin and Guinevere. Both are sweet, kind, socially-awkward [[WideEyedIdealist wide-eyed idealists]].
* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Anna Fulford is a very sweet and very kind young English woman and Detective Murdoch's TemporaryLoveInterest. Even Julia, who should be jealous of her, says that Anna's lovely and seems to really mean it.
* ''Series/AlloAllo'' has quite an unlikely Cutie, because Lieutenant Gruber is a Wehrmacht officer in occupied France. Yet he's sweet, well-mannered, polite, civil, enthusiastic, a great pianist and has a crush on René, which is unfortunately a case of IncompatibleOrientation. He keeps apologizing whenever he's forced to search people or carry out orders he's uncomfortable with. He likes his "little tank" and only he can make "Heil Hitler!" sound adorable.
* Cat Valentine from ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' and later ''Series/SamAndCat'' is a lovable, ditzy, cheerful GenkiGirl played by Music/ArianaGrande. She also can be flirty but in a cute, innocent way.
%%* Elly the [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Naiad]] from ''Series/{{Grimm}}''. She's also a CuteMute.
* ''Series/AgentsOfShield'': When Jemma Simmons squees over alien biology or [[ThroughHisStomach asks Fitz about the sandwich she made for him]], it's hard not to {{squee}} along with her.
* Leslie Knope of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' expresses her love of cute things in a variety of ways. One episode's plot was based around her officiating the marriage of two penguins because "it was cute".
* Annie of ''Series/{{Community}}'' dots her "i"s with hearts and loves stickers and other traditionally-girly stuff. She and [[TeamMom Shirley]] "[[CatchPhrase Awww...]]" in unison whenever something cute happens.
* Riley Matthews of ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' brings this UpToEleven with everything she does. The episode "Girl Meets Popular" is one big showing of her cuteness.
* ''Series/TheLibrarians2014'': Cassandra Cillian is the most upbeat and adorable of the new Librarians.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Vicki, companion to the First Doctor, [[FluffyTamer gave cutesy nicknames to hideous monsters]], fangirled out over meeting Nero in ancient Rome and was generally cute as a button.
* Jeannie, the beautiful, sweet, naive genie of ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' whose two goals in life were to marry her 'master' and to have as much innocent fun as possible along the way.

* Music/{{Gorillaz}} gives us an interesting example with 2D; whilst his wholly black eyes and UncannyValley appearance can make him look terrifying, he's actually a harmless KindHeartedSimpleton. Being TheWoobie helps.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/{{Bayley}}. Absolutely adorable, the closest thing you can get to an AllLovingHero in a wrestling ring, and [[CuddleBug she wants to hug you!]] The fact that she can [[CuteBruiser pick you up and beat you against the ground until you give up and let her]] takes nothing away from this.

%%* BBC Radio One has many younger presenters that fall into this category: Current examples include [[PrettyBoy Phil]] [[{{Keet}} Taggart]], [[FieryRedhead Alice Levine]], and ''especially'' [[CanadaEh B.]][[EveryoneLovesBlondes Traits]].
* An adult male example in ''Radio/NewDynamicEnglish'': Described as "upbeat and peppy", Max talks in a more cheerful way than the other men in New Dynamic English. It seems that other characters treat him this way as well, as Elizabeth and Kathy would occasionally copy his way of talking when they talk to him.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''
** [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Both]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite incarnations]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 of]] Bianca; A NiceGirl that's always running late and has an adorable victory dance.
** For ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', Shauna fulfills this role. From the moment she meets your player character, she instantly wants to be your friend and only really wants to go on a Pokémon journey for having wonderful memories.
* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'': Manami is meant to appeal to fans of the [[TokenMiniMoe "moe"]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPok64iH8pE character type]], despite being 16 years old. That's because she's short ''and childish'', with an insatiable SweetTooth and a love for cute cuddly objects (best [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M37fCAlGcEc seen at 0:39-2:12).]]
* Creator/BioWare tends to include one of these as a love interest in each of their games.
** Aerie in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII''; by the end, you will either want to marry her or strangle her.
** Tali in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' is a petite engineering prodigy who becomes adorably flustered if romanced.
** Leliana in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is a cheerful bard and former Chantry sister who enjoys lightly ribbing her companions. She's cute enough that she can get away with teasing Sten after catching playing with a kitten.
** Merrill in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' has big, trusting eyes and a kindhearted nature. She's also endearingly awkward.
*** Hawke's sister Bethany is a non-love interest Cutie in playthroughs where she survives the prologue. She's sweet and affectionate, and one of the only two companions to get along with everyone in the group.
* Flonne from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea|HourOfDarkness}}'' is so sweet and wholeheartedly lovable that she is a LoveFreak.
* ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'': Nanashi is the cutest/cutesiest and most innocent character in the story. She frequently uses the third person and has her own verbal tic. She's very hands on and affectionate. She's also undead, so the main character wants nothing to do with her or her affections.
* ''VideoGame/Fallout3'': Moira Brown, Megaton's shopkeeper and tinkerer in science. She sticks out for being perpetually cheery and upbeat in a blasted post-apocalyptic wasteland.
* Max Caulfield, Chloe Price, and Kate Marsh in ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' are respectively extremely cute, kind (Chloe before her father's death and her alternate) and had a ''lot'' of BreakTheCutie and, for the latters, KillTheCutie moments when the later episodes progressed, can be {{Averted}} by choice.
* The "Lazy" class of villagers from ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' act like prepubescent children, despite being at least young adults. They also dress cute at times, like the villager Bob who wears a cute pink shirt. They also cry a lot and talk about food, sleeping, and playing with you. D'aww...
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''
** In the early game of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'', seven-year-old Rydia's suffering is the final straw for Cecil and Kain to break with Baron's [[TheEmpire Evil-Empirish]] ways, her 3D summon animation is a childish twirl, and it's stated that she's good at summoning because she's so innocent. Then she [[YearInsideHourOutside spends some time in the Feymarch]] and comes back as MsFanservice.
** Krile from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''. She has a cheery, teasing personality that keeps events of the late game (which get pretty dire) from getting too terrible, and her job classes are clearly designed to be as adorable as possible.
** Rinoa from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII''. Reportedly, Tetsuya Nomura, the head character designer for [[Creator/SquareEnix Square]] at the time, specifically wanted her to give off a "cute" vibe, and built her character around this idea.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': Vivi, the adorable little black mage was so loved by fans, he made a cameo in Kingdom Hearts 2. Throughout the game he acts like Zidane's kid brother and fidgets with his hat when nervous.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Rikku, the adorable WrenchWench Al Bhed girl, has some endearingly cute qualities to her. You just want to hug her on the Thunder Plains where she's absolutely terrified of lightning.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'':
*** Vanille all but skips through the game. She's easily the motivator of TheTeam (along with Snow) and has various moments of BadassAdorable.
*** Serah, a sweet girl and Snow's finance.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'':
** Sora is a male variant. He's idealistic and innocent, a contrast to many other characters in the series.
** Kairi counts, what with [[spoiler: being a Princess of Purest Heart and all]].
%%** Ventus from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' is another male variant, and acts similar to Sora
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'':
** TheCutie is a common characteristic for female units in that [[MagikarpPower starts out feeble but becomes a powerhorse if trained]]. This includes but not limited to most early obtained pegasus knights like [[GenkiGirl Shanna]] and [[ShrinkingViolet Florina]], the "heroines" like [[LadyOfWar Caeda]] and [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Lilina]] and "Est" archetypes like [[TheWoobie Nino]] and [[NaiveNewComer Amelia]]. Cute and innocent characters tend to make babying units much least onerous.
** Young male characters are sometimes this too. Dew from the fourth game is a plucky, comical thief, Franz from the eighth is NewMeat to Renais' army and on the receiving end of BigBrotherInstinct from Forde, and Lugh from the sixth game exists to feed baked goods to {{Tsundere}}s and soldiers.
** While she may act tough on the outside, your Hoshidan sister (actually not related to you) [[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Hinoka]] is a total cutie on the inside when it's revealed she was a crybaby as a child when the avatar was kidnapped by King Garon, she's also very idealistic and is one of the few characters to not be that angry about your betrayal should the player choose to side with Nohr. Not to mention she is a down to earth nature lover as shown by her coddling her pegasus and especially in some support conversations when she opens up and reveals she's not as mentally tough as nails as she lets on.
** Also from Fates this time on the Conquest Nohrian side is the young teenage ([[VagueAge we think]])) Elise who all but skips through the game in a manner similar to Vanille from Final Fantasy XIII, extremely endearing and idealistic, affectionately refers to you should you marry her in the Revelation or Conquest path as her "hubby", refers to her children as "gumdrops", and is an all around NiceGirl who is the only one of the Nohrians to not feel betrayed should you side with Hoshido. [[spoiler: She even [[TakingTheBullet takes a strike]] meant for you from Xander, her older brother which is especially heart-wrenching.]]
* ''VideoGame/EternalSonata'' has the kids Beat and March (PuppyLove and {{Nice Hat}}s) but there's also a young teen example in [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold golden haired Polka]].
* Cream the Rabbit from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''. She's one of the sweetest, kindest, most innocent characters in the whole series.
* ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'': Mikakis serves as Princess Lymsleia's [[TheGadfly eccentric]] [[BadassAdorable bodyguard]]. At first one might think she's a little young for such a position, but she's actually [[OlderThanTheyLook 22 years old.]] She just doesn't ''act'' like it most of the time (seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVKLWd61zQE at 0:37-1:22]]).
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': Princes Estelle is SpoiledSweet and [[FriendToAllLivingThings she adores animals]] (but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuSYx74IT9o the feeling isn't mutual]]). And since she's been sheltered most of her life, she knows little of the outside world, other than what she's read in books. So she's [[CloudCuckoolander somewhat]] LiteralMinded - like the time she actually expected Rita to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDqM4oOxWXs "eat her words."]]
%%* [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Toroko]] from ''VideoGame/CaveStory.'' Yes, even when she [[spoiler: eats the red flowers.]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* While the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series is generally comedic with plenty of serious moments, these characters in particular stand out as being adorable and idealistic:
** Regina Berry from case 2-3. She is a young circus darling beloved by almost everyone in the circus with the naivete of a [[KiddieKid much younger]] child. Though it was her father Russell Berry that made her that way by telling her "When people die, they become a star in the sky". She's clueless about a lot of things being sheltered from most of the "real world" and has charmed at least four men older than her (aside from maybe one little JerkAss puppet) and doesn't even realize the gravity of her father's death, or Acro's vengeance until Phoenix figures it out.
** Sasha Buckler from the fifth game. For one, she's very genki and energetic like Maya and Pearly, has been a HeartwarmingOrphan adopted by Jack Shipley at a young age, sings sea shanties with her whale, who she communicates to using an anchor-shaped whistle, and is a FriendToAllLivingThings much like Acro and the [[spoiler:"murderer" of this case]]. She even wears purple and black arm floaties and all but dances her way through life.
** Trucy Wright, a 15-year-old magician who turns around Apollo's otherwise bland life with [[GenkiGirl genkiness]]. Enter [[TomboyWithAGirlyStreak Athena Cykes]], who she's friends with, and her youthful girliness stands out even more.
** Pearl Fey, an adorable child who blushes every time she talks about Maya and Phoenix's [[ShipperOnDeck "relationship"]]. She often shows a lot of excitement when agreeing to do something with those two, and would do anything for her cousin Maya.
** Vera Misham is a pretty ShyBlueHairedGirl who rarely speaks due to [[NoSocialSkills her disconnection with the outer world]]. She only shows emotions via smileys in sketches she makes on the spot. Then you find out she adopted this behavior because she was kidnapped as a kid, and she becomes even cuter.
%%** Maya Fey.
* Komari from ''VisualNovel/LittleBusters'' has HairOfGoldHeartOfGold and InnocentBlueEyes, [[SweetTooth adores sweets]], is often distracted from conversations by things like dandelions blowing in the breeze, [[WideEyedIdealist and just plain wants to make the world a better place for everyone]].
* ''VisualNovel/ShinyDays''
** Kokoro is built around the cute little kid idea and is thus very innocent and energetic, though she can have a bit of a dirty mouth sometimes and her sister finds her annoying sometimes.
** Main heroine Setsuna is also apparently built to be as cute and sympathetic as possible, especially if you pick the right dialogue options. Unfortunately, the summer is littered with minefields for her so it's quite easy for her to end up heartbroken, YouBastard.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'', [[StarCrossedLovers Kieri and Buwaro]]. both are drawn to look absolutely adorable (except when the other threatened), and Kieri [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting turns into a bunny at random moments]].
* Due to the art style, most of the characters in ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'' look cute, but the outstanding [[TheCutie Cutie]] in the bunch is the cheerful and friendly [[http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/characters/ Princess Nautilus]].
* ''Webcomic/VampireCheerleaders'': The Bakertown High "B" Squad is such an eternal fountain of [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/lori_surprises_herself cheerful support]] and [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/overflowing_with_excitement youthful optimism]], that they may as well be called [[{{moe}} "Team Moe".]] Which is why the readers adore them.
* ''Webcomic/SandraOnTheRocks'': The readership has quickly come to regard Lavali this way; particularly during scenes [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/raring_to_go like these]], where she appears [[{{moe}} vulnerable and frightened.]] Aided further by her being [[ShrinkingViolet shy and reserved]] and just plain cute [[http://www.sandraontherocks.com/strips-sotr/interesting_company when she's happy.]]
* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Tuuri is tends to be quite enthusiastic about a lot of things she encounters due to being the scholar on an expedition in a ForbiddenZone after eleven years of not leaving her home military base. That time in the military base also makes her much less aware of the dangers that lurk outside it than most of her crewmates, making her relatively innocent and idealistic as well. Her caring side is shown by her being CloudcuckoolandersMinder to her cousin who's also on the expedition along with her more official duties.
* ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'':
** Scarlet, and later her sisters are this, despite also routinely being used as the InnocentFanserviceGirl (this is still a Jolly Jack cartoon). They are {{Cloudcuckoolander}} {{Genki Girl}}s who act as comic relief partly because of their naïveté, and partly because of their [[spoiler: HiveMind super-intelligence when they're in the same room together]].
** The Denizens are also this after Jack is defeated, becoming docile, but still curious and silly little shadow people who like watching period dramas.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebVideo/TheAnnoyingOrange'': Marshmallow loves puppies, kittens, unicorns, rainbows, and is [[LoveYouAndEverybody nice to everyone]], unless you [[BerserkButton insult any of the above]], in which case [[BewareTheNiceOnes watch out]].
* ''[[WebVideo/LukeMochrieAndTheInners Film Conscience]]'': Ringo represent the more cheerful, optimistic side of Kinley.
* ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'': Jane Bennet is universally loved and admired. She's adorable and nice to everybody, and genuine in her sweetness. Interesting how a woman in her mid-twenties can pull this off.
* Nella from ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick'', to contrast with the other oft-psychotic BrokenBird characters on the show.
* Clover of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. One of the youngest kids at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy, she's a naive wizardess-wannabe with the cutest puppy ever. And a witch hat she's sure will give her magic powers. She also happens to be a powerful RealityWarper and her puppy Buttons can turn into a monstrous dog the size of a pony.
* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'':
** Surprisingly it has this in [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-085 Cassy]], an animate drawing of a sweet and friendly young woman who everyone at the Foundation adores. Unfortunately she found out about her two-dimensional condition and has been in depression ever since.
** There's also [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-054 SCP-054]] a friendly entity made of water that likes to play with personnel. Unfortunately frequent experimentation on her (mostly by men) has caused her to resent men and be fearful of them.
** Despite their dangerous effects and general [[CreepyChild creepiness]], most of the "little girl" SCP items, such as [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-053 SCP-053]], [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-040 SCP-040]], and [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-134 SCP-134]] are genuinely sweet, [[ChildrenAreInnocent innocent children]] who don't mean any (deliberate) harm. Even [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-239 SCP-239]], a [[PersonOfMassDestruction Keter-Class]], is a sweet girl despite her [[ApocalypseHow apocalyptic]] [[RealityWarper reality-bending]] powers.
* Madison from ''[[WebVideo/CartoonDriveThru Deadly Space Action]]'' is the crew's ditzy and happy mechanic, who remains optimistic in everything she does despite a complete lack of competence.
* ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' has its KindheartedSimpleton and ManChild Sparadrap and Couette, a mild {{Kawaiiko}} who was his DistaffCounterpart before gradual DivergentCharacterEvolution took place. The two are given child-like designs in the comic rendering of the franchise.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Darwin in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' often qualifies. Usually very optimistic, peppy, always smiling, and slow to anger, it can be surprising to see him break his usual mould.
-->'''Anais:''' He plans to invade the rest of the world to make it safe!\\
'''Gumball:''' How do you know all this?\\
'''Nicole:''' He told us.\\
'''Gumball:''' Why didn't you stop him?\\
'''Richard:''' Because, it's Darwin. He's really cute.\\
'''Nicole:''' He was all like, ''[cute voice]'' "All resistance in futile!"\\
'''Anais:''' ''[cute voice]'' "Those who stray from the path will be corrected!"\\
'''Richard:''' ''[cute voice]'' "Today a safer Elmore! Tomorrow a safer world!"\\
'''Gumball:''' What?! How could you not see he was dangerous-? Actually, now that I think of it, it must have been adorable.\\
'''All:''' Awww...

** Betty Gilligan is a lovably cheerful woman, if a bit oblivious.
%%* Dee Dee from ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Amy Wong was once caught in a fire that burnt off most of her hair. Her reaction? "Look! My hair got singed into an even cuter 'do!"
%%* Mabel Pines, from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls''.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/HappyNessTheSecretOfTheLoch Happy Ness: The Secret of the Loch]]'' has Cute Ness. She's so adorable, and she certainly [[MeaningfulName lives up to her name]].

* Blythe Baxter and Penny Ling from ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012''.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Any mare or stallion is likely really cute, in appearance if not in deed.
** Fluttershy is a ShrinkingViolet known for her kindness. There's a reason she provides the page image for this trope.
** Pinkie Pie, a GenkiGirl known for being very cheerful and positive. Her cutie mark is balloons and her GoalInLife is to make everyone happy.
** Apple Bloom's first appearance cemented her as a cute little sister.
** Sweetie Belle is this in every way. Voice squeaks? Adorable mane? Cute face? Yup, definitely fits with her.
%%** In a show with adorable ponies as the main cast, the Mane Six in general have their moments of being total cuties. Although they seem to consider Spike this.
** Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake. They're {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s, being magical baby ponies and all.
%%* Niblet and Giblet from ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies2010''.

%%* Cornchip Girl and Miss Grotke from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' Harvey
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** In the season 1 character commercials, Stan was labeled as "The cute one".
** Butters is a sweet, naive CheerfulChild and by far the most innocent character on the show.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': ComicBook/{{Starfire}} is a girl that [[IJustWantToHaveFriends wants to make friends with everybody]], sees beauty in almost everything, has a fondness to [[CutenessProximity cute things]] and has a general {{Moe}} attitude. Her sweet voice, innocence and NoSocialSkills are a good source of humor in the show. She also tends to apologize when attacking enemies, but she is also a brave warrior that would do anything to protect the earth and her friends, so [[BewareTheNiceOnes don't mess with her]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Invoked when Lisa is asked to throw the National Spelling Bee in favor of her main rival, Alex, a younger boy who is genuinely so sweet and innocent that the spelling bee organizer belives having him as their champion would help bring mainstream attention to the competition. Alex is unaware of this and ends up winning legitimatly when Lisa accidentally screws up her final word while exposing the attempted rigging.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'':
** Bridgette (a NiceGirl that love animals and surf) and Lindsay (an adorable BrainlessBeauty and SpoiledSweet).
** Sierra. She has a high-pitched, sweet, childish voice and constantly comments on things being cute (even a leech on her face), that is, until someone pushes her BerserkButton. Then she becomes CuteAndPsycho.
** Dawn, a mysterious nature lover. Dawn appears to be good-hearted and very helpful, although she comes across as creepy to the others.
** Ella, a songbird with a personality as angelic as her singing voice. One of the nicest, if not the nicest character in the whole series.
* Miss Martian in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' [[spoiler: invokes this trope. Though genuinely kind, her mannerism and appearance were constructed from a short-lived cheesy sitcom called "Hello Megan", and her true form is a horrific monster. She almost betrayed her friends to keep the truth hidden, and in the second season develops a very dark tendency for MindRape.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'':
-->'''Yakko:''' I'm Yakko.\\
'''Wakko:''' I'm Wakko.\\
'''Dot''': And I'm cute!
* ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAm'': Tails is really sweet, but can [[BewareTheNiceOnes put up a fight]] when called for, especially when harm is given to Sonic and Sally.
* ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'': Yoko, Lilly and Juanita are all very sweet and kind characters. But Yoko takes the cake due to her being sweet-natured and caring about others. Especially with her best friend Timothy.
* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'':
** Rachael is a cute girl who [[PinkMeansFeminine wears pink]], sings beautifully, and has a CatSmile. In fact, her stanked form is a CuteKitten (albeit a giant, monsterous one).
** Julian is an {{Adorkable}} CloudCuckoolander PerkyGoth who is ''very'' passionate about both magic and [[NightmareFetishist the dark and freaky]].
* ''WesternAnimation/BuddyThunderstruck'': Deputy Sheriff Hoisenberry, a very young, tiny deer who looks like a long-lost relative to [[Manga/OnePiece Tony Tony Chopper]].
* Jet from ''WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo'' proves to be this trope entirely with his adorkable tendencies. [[TheBabyOfTheBunch Mindy]] and [[{{Nerd}} Mitchell]] also qualify for this trope.
