* ''Manga/KiniroMosaic'': A prime exemple of the "cute [[SchoolgirlSeries schoolgirls]] [[SliceOfLife hanging out]] and doing cute things" genre, [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with lots of]] LesYay.
**In one episode, Shinobu, who have a things for [[PhenotypeStereotype blonde]] [[ForeignCultureFetish british]] girls, [[TheGlomp glomp]] Alice and explicitly call her moe. Alice does'nt understand the meaning of the term.


* Izuru Hino from ''Manga/{{Change 123}}'', with her TaremeEyes eyes, cheerful smile, and gentle and peaceful nature...at first. Later we discover that she [[spoiler:is actually a BadassAdorablea nd that those bunnies which she tended weren't exactly her pets]].

* Sakura's mom in ''Manga/CodeBreaker'' is a true Moe Blob: she's the size of a small child and loooooves playing dress up [[spoiler: since she's Sakura's adopted mom, who knows how old she is]]. There's also Sakura's classmate [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Nenene]], who is also very tiny (yet two years older then Sakura), has [[{{meganekko}} glasses]], and loves groping Sakura's breasts (she even ''names'' them).

** Haruhi as a whole could be seen as Moe. Despite her general [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], and [[SnarkKnight apathetic]] nature she has moe traits. Tamaki, Hikaru, and Kaoru never fail to point out how [[HollywoodHomely 'plain' and 'dull']] she is treating it as more of an endearing quality rather than an insult. The boys also love to dress her up in all sorts of outfits (granted, most are unisex or male--and Haruhi's not enthusiastic about it). She has few weaknesses with the exception of a FearOfThunder and is painfully ObliviousToLove. Read chapters [[http://www.onemanga.com/Ouran_High_School_Host_Club/57/01/ 57]] and [[http://www.onemanga.com/Ouran_High_School_Host_Club/58/01/ 58]] for an unusually Moe Haruhi (she goes back to her normal self a chapter or so later).
** [[TokenMiniMoe Haninozuka Mitsukuni]] is definitely moe. Although he's 18 at the beginning of the series, he still takes afternoon naps, adores sweets, and carries around his precious bunny. Honey could also fit under BadassAdorable considering he is more than capable of [[IKnowKarate taking care of himself]].
