[[TropeNamer The trope's title]] is from 'Fun-sized' candy bars, the smallest size typically seen as [[AllHallowsEve Halloween]] treats. It has nothing to do with the [[Film/FunSize Nickelodeon movie]].

* The TropeNamer expression itself is a direct result of marketing genius by candy manufacturers. Most kids would be rather peeved at receiving a candy bar a quarter of the size as normal; introducing the "Fun Size" expression made it more acceptable to sell small-sized candy bars in bulk, both for special occasions such as Halloween and Valentine's Day, and in general as a "dessert" item for pre-packaged kids' meals.

* Metal Gear Mk II in ''VisualNovel/{{Snatcher}}'' is terribly cute, despite having a design inspired by [[Franchise/MetalGear nuke-launching superweapons]]. ''Snatcher SD'' makes Metal Gear even smaller.

* Talking about {{Mons}}, [=MarineAngemon=] is definitely Franchise/{{Digimon}}'s take on Shaymin (or is it the reverse, since [=MarineAngemon=] came first?). Also, this [[http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa6/Calibremon/Kapurimon.jpg Kapurimon]] is one of the third-grade-equivalent students at a school in one episode of ''Anime/DigimonFrontier.'' (He's existed in other media for much longer, and it appeared briefly in Anime/DigimonTamers.) In-Training level Digimon are almost always toothachingly cute. (But if he hits you with his tail, you ''will'' feel it.)

* In one arc of ''Webcomic/{{Looking for Group}}'', Richard gets turned into a child by a cursed medallion. Much [[HilarityEnsues humor results]] from his newfound cuteness. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Especially when Benny fits a saddle, harness and bridle to the rabbit following them around for Richard to ride.]]

** Pomeranians were bred specifically to be small after Queen Victoria both popularized the smaller types, and led a breeding program to decrease their size. And then there's the [[http://wallpaper-download.net/wallpapers/animal-wallpapers-pomsky-full-grown-wallpaper-34760.jpg Pomsky]] (all the beauty of a Husky in a mini package).

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers the original Transformers cartoon]], Galvatron is an EvilOverlord who is death and destruction incarnate, but so far [[AxCrazy out of his processor]] that he's as dangerous to his allies as his enemies. In the Japanese [=MyClone=] toyline, on the other hand, he looks like [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:MycloneGalv.jpg this]]. As Wiki/TFWiki puts it, "He will kill you with adorability."

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has the Krabby Kiddie Patty which is "thirty percent cuter" than a normal krabby patty.
* Chibi versions of the characters are used for gags in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies''. In one episode, Alex finds Clover adorable after she is shrunk to insect size.
* Spike in WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic is the youngest dragon we see, and is appropriately tiny. He's even smaller than the foals in the series who can also count as this.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'': The puppy and chibi forms of Arf and Zafila's first attempt at using the former in the [[AllThereInTheManual third Sound Stage of the second season]] earned him many squealing, cuddle-happy girls, much to his annoyance.
