Most of the dragons from , except Toothless (who's just plain cute) or How to Train Your Dragon Green Death (who's just plain horrifying).
Most of the cast of who aren't the leads, who are more traditionally cute. Even the vampires are adorable!
The Nightmare Before Christmas Some fans of consider the title character, Emily, to be rather cute for a rotting corpse in a tattered wedding dress whose eye occasionally falls out.
Corpse Bride Her Peter Lorre maggot has his own charm.
Many of the creatures from .
Yellow Submarine The characters from utilize this to stand out from all the cute Rango Pixar style animations flooding the theaters.
The Stitchpunks in , who're basically little ragdolls made out of things like sacking, canvas, and (in the case of two of them) garden gloves. 9
Most of whom die horribly. Minion from , who is essentially a little fish-alien who gets about using a gorilla-like mech suit, and Megamind is one of the nicest characters in the film.
: Tyler "Blu" Gunderson.
Rio : Ozzie's a pug. It's obligatory.
Epic Quasimodo from Disney's . Of course he's considerably less ugly than he was supposed to be in the book.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame :
WALL•E Seeing as WALL•E is a rusty, dirty, trash compactor, he certainly qualifies.
And his adorable little disease-harboring pet, a cockroach.
Pixar is good with this trope. See also the more esoteric-looking characters in and Toy Story .
A Bug's Life And . (Mike Wasowski, for instance.)
Monsters, Inc. :
Pixar Shorts Glen Keane absolutely had this in mind when designing Beast for .
Beauty and the Beast Stitch from . Sometimes very cute. Sometimes very not cute, especially when he's in one of his Lilo & Stitch Killer Rabbit moods.
All of the experiments apply. You could also count Jumba and Pleakley, too. And Lilo's doll, Scrump. Let's just face it: Chris Sanders loves Ugly Cute.
Some of the character designs in Dreamworks' , like the giant bug monster, Insectosaurus.
Monsters vs. Aliens Another Dreamworks example is Princess Fiona as an ogre. Ogres are supposed to be ugly, at least in-universe (compared to most ogres in other fiction, Shrek is quite a good-looking chap), but Fiona is on an entirely different class - the only differences to her human form are basically the green skin, ogre ears, wider nose and the extra pounds that make her a Big Beautiful Woman. Nothing else.
Slyder, the dragon minion of 's Barbie & The Diamond Castle villain has obviously been designed so that he looks evil, but not so scary that little girls would turn off the movie. This includes mismatched buck teeth and a rounded horn on his head, not to mention that he seems to be made of cartoon sound effects.
The peglegged, sharp-toothed, gravel-voiced Fidget the bat from (though he's terrifying in his first appearance).
The Great Mouse Detective Horror, from . It helps that he's The Pagemaster The Woobie. See, horror stories always have sad endings...
Played with in one scene, where the lopsided and deformed Horror walks past a bottle of liquid in Dr Jekyll's laboratory, and is seen through the liquid as a beautiful young man.
Nearly half the non-human cast of , especially Ray.
The Princess and the Frog The Big-Nosed Thug at the Snuggly Duckling in , who reveals himself to be a hopeless romantic in the number "I've Got A Dream".
Tangled has Turbo. Basically picture the adorable Wreck-It Ralph Kick Buttowski as a zombie.
Tick Tock the Crocodile from Disney's adaptation of . On the one hand, he's a crocodile with a taste for human (in this case Captain Hook's) flesh with razor sharp teeth. On the other hand, he's so goofy-looking and his antics with Hook are so funny that you can't help but find him endearing.
Peter Pan The Minions from . Despite the comb-overs, bug-eyes and sickly yellow skin, they're oddly Despicable Me Adorkable.
Scrat from probably qualifies with that long snout, big eyes and pointed fangs of his.
Ice Age Sid is also very weird looking with his wide-set eyes, big nose, and crooked teeth all the way down to his slothy hips. He's clumsy, awkward, and is voiced by John Leguizamo in a tone that goes from normal with a lisp to shrill and girly. Everything about him is absolutely huggable.
Similar to Scrat is Salty from : Alpha and Omega I dare you not to completely melt when you look at him! ◊
Olaf, the gawky looking snowman from .
Frozen Wybie from has a slight hunchback, Coraline leaves in his hair, and a creepy skull mask, but it's still pretty easy to see why he's an Ensemble Darkhorse.
Many of the characters from , but special mention goes to ParaNorman Norman, Neil, and .
Agatha Anastasia from is portrayed as one of the "ugly" stepsisters, but as her Cinderella inner goodness developed in the sequels, she veered into this category.
