Keep in mind that [[Administrivia/TropesAreTools levity and sweetness are not necessarily bad]]. With proper usage, it may result in an enjoyable series where the cuteness is somehow justified or just part of the environment. When it monopolizes the series, or puts being adorable ahead of things like actual plots or likeable characters, ''then'' it becomes a problem. Cute in and of itself isn't wrong, but given an audience's general conditioning to the notion that SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids, that RealMenHateSugar and RealWomenNeverWearDresses (a side effect of [[GirlShowGhetto targeting masculine elements towards women as much as men]]), even this wiki has something of an aversion to cuteness as an entity as the incredibly long list of examples below attest. This cultural reaction is also one of the core reasons why AmericanKirbyIsHardcore.

* Likewise, SpinOff franchises ''Toys/FairyTails'' and ''Toys/MyPrettyMermaids'' do everything ''My Little Pony''. They just have less to show for it because there's only a minimal amount of fiction to go with the toys.

* Franchise/MyLittlePony, particularly G2 and G3, is known for being overly cute at times, with cute ponies in pretty much every possible color, cute symbols, pink being one of the most popular pony colors, and some (like Gigglebean) have absurdly cute names.
* Franchise/SylvanianFamilies, especially outside North America. The toys are often marketed with kids narrating in the ads, and the [[WesternAnimation/SylvanianFamilies Western-animated TV show]] aside (which primarily targeted North Americans), the shorts and OVA releases are largely SliceOfLife and NoAntagonist with the characters all going about their happy little daily lives and any conflict that arises are usually petty and quickly resolved through ThePowerOfFriendship.

This is an audience reaction to works that are strongly [[LighterAndSofter attempting to be kid-friendly]]-- using almost all the tropes of cuteness and {{idealism|Tropes}}, like there's some kind of checklist. '[[http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/saccharine Saccharine]]' is the watchword. Viewers react to this with anything ranging from cutesy cuddling to violent revulsion. Always, there will be fun, colorful settings, {{Narm}} or generally [[LargeHam hammy voice acting]], [[NeverSayDie an aversion to anything resembling death except for that one final and dramatic battle]], and [[ThePowerOfFriendship no matter the situation, if you have friends, you will win because you can only win with friends.]] The sun shines a lot, and when it's night, the moon is full and bright. Also, there is smiling. Tons of smiling. Even when it's not appropriate, there is smiling. The BigBad is ObviouslyEvil with no attempt to look otherwise, and flips between being born evil ([[VileVillainSaccharineShow maybe even worse]]) or redeemable, [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on the story]].
