''monstrous'', but female monsters need things to differentiate them from the male monsters ''and'' make them recognizably female to the audience (and by "recognizably female" we usually mean "[[BeautyIsNeverTarnished clean]], [[OnlyOneFemaleMold slim, and attractive.]]"). When the MaleGaze gets involved this results in common design features for female characters in other contexts, like HartmanHips, NonMammalMammaries, [[LongHairIsFeminine long hair]], and TertiarySexualCharacteristics like dresses or make-up (or bits of anatomy designed to look like a dress or make-up), even if it would make no sense for such a creature to have these features. While this is often done for purposes of {{Fanservice}} it can also be for WhatMeasureIsANonHuman reasons, as the audience is more likely to sympathise with a Monster Girl who looks more human than one who looks more monstrous. Conversely it can be done for GrotesqueCute reasons, contrasting the monstrous and cute side, especially if they still ''act'' like the monster they're based on -- villainous [=CMGs=] in particular are very likely to be {{Literal Man Eater}}s.²²Female {{One Gender Race}}s are typically these. [[AlwaysFemale Although very]] [[MostWritersAreMale rare]], in works targeted towards men, the SpearCounterpart Cute Monster ''Guy'', is quite common in {{Shojo}}, {{Josei}}, BoysLove, {{Otome Game}}s and other media marketed to women. The most commonly known example is [[VampiresAreSexGods vampires]]. However, younger variants of the traditional definition of "cute" (i.e. Children) for both genders are a bit more common. Assume that if there is a MonsterMash, the few female member(s) will be Cute Monster Girls. May involve {{Stripperiffic}} designs. If there's more than one of them, they'll often have [[OnlyOneFemaleMold remarkably similar builds.]]²²This character type can also be used as a basis for studying discrimination, social differences and similar themes, since monster girls are pretty, cute and different at the same time to attract a wide audience and detail [[FantasticRacism problems arising from differences]].²²Subtrope of MonstrousHumanoid. Related to MoeAnthropomorphism and Gijinka in FanArt circles. Often subject to FantasticArousal. Compare [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Cute Alien Girl]], [[AdorableAbomination Cute Eldritch Abomination Girl]], [[HumanoidFemaleAnimal Cute Humanoid]] [[LittleBitBeastly Animal Girl]], CuteGhostGirl, AttractiveZombie, SeductiveMummy, and SlimeGirl. Related to YouSexyBeast, although males are the more common recipient of that. Also related is GiantWoman, since the majority of giantesses are portrayed as sexually attractive.²----²!!Examples:²[[index]]²* CuteMonsterGirl/VideoGames²[[/index]]²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Anime & Manga]]²* Borders on crossing over into the DANGER ZONE but [[ Bagi]] of ''Anime/BagiTheMonsterOfMightyNature''. Though as the movie progresses she begins to regress towards her half-animal side and eventually loses speech and coherent thought by the end.²* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', the merrow are AlwaysFemale [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]] which have a human upper body and a fishy lower body. They can, however, assume a human shape, and go ashore. In their human form they look almost like humans, but have light blue hair. Some of them have [[InterspeciesRomance love relationships]] with humans, and can have common descendants with them.²** The [[HalfHumanHybrid half-merrow]] [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Isma]] was born this way. And she also qualifies for this trope.²** Despite being made of troll intestines at one point, Slan of the God Hand is still pretty hot.²** [[ Danan]] the monarch (queen) of Elfhelm. ²* In ''Manga/BlueExorcist'', Rin is a [[GenderInvertedTrope Cute Monster Guy]]. CuteLittleFangs, PointyEars, fluffy tail, and all. He just also happens to be the resident AntiAntiChrist.²* Almost the entire female cast of ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', which features a Lamia, a centaur, a harpy, a slime, a mermaid, an arachne, a dullahan, and those are just the main seven. The series also puts much more focus on the monster aspect of the characters, as every chapter tends to explore an interesting aspect of their race beyond their superficial appearance. Suu dissolves in large bodies of water. Miia has trouble shedding her skin when she's stressed. Papi, like all harpies, has a small figure which helps her fly.²** Continued in the above example's author's other work, ''Manga/DeadlineSummonner''. This work has [[BattleHarem a diverse harem of ten]] [[OutWithABang who could easily destroy the main character with their affections]]--or accidentally kill him in the crossfire of [[ClingyJealousGirl their fights over who gets to be the "Main" summon.]]²** Same author as the above two, ''Manga/TwelveBeast'' ups the ante with an entire '''army''' of cute monster girls--and boys! Though the majority of the focus is [[MaleGaze still on the ladies]], Eita's army does not lack eye candy for other orientations.²* ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'': Zero Two is a human/klaxosaur hybrid that looks nearly indistinguishable from a human except for her pair of small horns and occasionally red eyes and sharp fangs. She qualified for this trope better when [[spoiler:she was a child, since she had red skin, bigger horns and serrated teeth, and still looked adorable despite her feral personality]].²* ''Anime/DeltoraQuest'' given the fantasy setting Emily Rodda's characters being re-imagined by Japan, this trope was bound to happen. ²** The Dread [[OurGnomesAreWeirder Gnomes]] are not described as attractive in any conventional sense of the word in the books, but the anime turns female Gnome [[ Gla-Thorn]] into a cutie. ²** [[spoiler: Fangirls were able to look past Dain's monstrous and demonic appearance (upon his revealing himself a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Ol]]) and still squeal over him. Despite Dain being a heavy case of EvilMakesYouUgly before Lief kills him]]. ²* ''VisualNovel/{{Demonbane}}'' takes this to the logical extreme: we have several examples of [[TomeOfEldritchLore Grimoires]] that take the form of young teenaged girls, rather than books. Apparently this is because these particular Grimoires have so much magic power in them that they have developed a soul, and take a form more appropriate for an ensouled being. Why all of them are female is not addressed, although in the sequel we meet a male [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human, half-grimoire]].²* Chomesuke from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' has 2 forms, the mostly human (if occasionally [[BlackEyesOfEvil black-eyed]]) form, and her completely demonic form, which is also kind of cute, in a ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' sort of way.²* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'':²** The Wind warriors from ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' -- when Zoe obtains the Beast Wind spirit, not only does it resemble nothing other than a lingerie model with avian wings and feet, but unlike ''every other (good) Beast spirit'', it doesn't even have the destructive impulses that took other characters up to three episodes to get under control. This is slightly more excusable with the other Wind warriors, as one of them is supposed to be human, another is supposed to be half-human, and the last has no real requirements -- but each form distinctly fails in the "Monster" part of "Digital Monster".²** Angewomon, [=LadyDevimon=], Lilymon and Rosemon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''. The [[BishonenLine Bishoujo Line]] means most female Digimon are gonna end up like this at some point.²** If you want to keep the ‘monster’ in monster girl, you want the villainous Ranamon. Green, covered with seashell-themed, uh, head-things, and cute as a button. Her Beast Spirit form, Calmaramon, is much more monstrous, with a giant squidlike body beneath the humanoid portion. Though it wasn't used that way, you get the feeling the designer had in mind hapless victims approaching a "woman" in the water, and then out comes Cthulhu's little sister to '''kill you to death'''.²* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':²** In ''Manga/DragonBall'', Goku brings a attractive mermaid to Roshi at one point and [[DirtyOldMan he creepily laments he]] [[MermaidProblem can't have fun with her "lower half".]] ²** In an anime-only episode when Goku travels to the demon world he meets a demon lady called Melee whose very attractive. ²** Goku himself counts as a [[BadassAdorable kid]], his cuteness is dialed UpToEleven when he dances or plays with animals or his friends.²*** Baby Piccolo [[ is kinda cute and gross]]. ²** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has the female Saiyans especially Fasha and Gine as unlike the [[AlternateUniverse universe 6]] fem-Saiyans Caulifla and Kale, Fasha ansd Gine still has their tails thus qualify. The cave-dwelling [[ female Saiyan]] with CutlassBetweenTheTeeth in a {{flashback}} to planet Tuffle also deserves a special mention.²*** Actually male Saiyans might well count for female fans, especially in their ape-like Super Saiyan 4 transformation from [[Anime/DragonBallGT GT]]. ²** Demon women are nearly all babes in other ''Dragon Ball'' media, like the Snake Princess in a filler episode in ''Z'', her maids and especially [[ Towa]] from ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse''.²** Zangya from 9th Dragon Ball Z movie, ''Anime/DragonBallZBojackUnbound'', is a literal GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe to date, Krillin stood no chance. No wonder Zangya was included in subsequent video games. ²** Female Buus unlike their male counterparts have voluptuous builds and way cuter than the fat male-Buu, they're so attractive they give the female Saiyans a run for their money and males in game express their attraction towards them. [[ Taino]] and [[ Miss Buu]] are definitely stands outs.²*** Since she’s got Buu DNA in her, Android 21 from ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'' in her SuperForm is [[ completely this trope]]. ²** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' introduces heaps, firstly the female angel Vados and her sisters Marcarita and Cus. But not their other sister Martinu though. ²*** From universe 2, Sanka Ku (in her [[ beast warrior form]]) and [[ Vikal]] who despite looking less human than other female colleagues is ironically sexier. ²*** From universe 4 [[ Caway]] and to a lesser extent [[ Darkori]]. [[ Monna]] is quite cute as well despite her roundness. ²*** From universe 9, [[ the cat girl Hop and rabbit girl Sorrel]]. ²*** From universe 10, [[ Lilibeu]] the butterfly-girl is a cutie. ²*** [[ Cocotte]] from universe 11, the only female in the team is of course attractive. ²** Cheelai the GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe from ''Anime/DragonBallSuperBroly'' is certainly one of if not the the most attractive female character introduced in Super. Cheelai’s curvaceous bod gets more [[MaleGaze screen time]] than a few characters. ²* Mink from ''Manga/DragonHalf'', though granted, she's [[HalfHumanHybrid half human]] herself; her mother is a dragon. Her mother is usually [[{{Shapeshifter}} transformed]] into a humanoid form but tends to break it when she becomes angry especially if the object of her rage is her philandering, lecherous, human husband.²* ''Manga/DropkickOnMyDevil'' is rife with them since most are the main characters. We got Jashin, a Lamia, Medusa, a gorgon, Yuki-onna sisters Kori and Yusa and Minotaur girl, Minos. ²* Celty from ''{{LightNovel/Durarara}}'' is a [[ Dullahan]] that looks like a beautiful, though deathly pale, woman from the neck down. From the neck up? Well, [[HeadlessHorseman she has no head]]. [[spoiler:When we ''do'' finally see her head, it's that of a cute, auburn-haired girl -- A far cry from the hideous, rotten-fleshed heads of the Dullahan of Celtic legend.]]²* ''Manga/ElfenLied'': [[HornedHumanoid Diclonii]]'s horns resemble cute cat ears.²* The Bugrom of ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' mostly resembled giant neon cockroaches, with the exception of their queen, who resembled a normal attractive human female with antennae.²* The dragon Sylphid from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' [[VoluntaryShapeshifting can change her shape]]. Her human form looks like an ordinary girl with blue hair.²* ''Manga/FrankenFran'':²** Fran Madaraki is a {{Moe}} FrankensteinsMonster. Or at least her appearance is cute (when she isn't falling apart). Fran herself is... [[MadScientist less]] [[MadDoctor than]] [[FateWorseThanDeath cute]].²** Her similarly [[FrankensteinsMonster stitched up]] sisters Gavrill and Veronica can be pretty damn cute (that is, when they're not being ''[[NightmareFuel fucking]] [[AxCrazy terrifying]]'') as can [[spoiler:officer Kuhou]] after she was transformed into a monster girl.²* [[spoiler:Miiru]] from the second volume of ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. She is actually [[spoiler:a servant of Tenkou who became such because she and her brother were killed for [[BrotherSisterIncest incest]] and wanted Tenkou's help to find a place where they could be happy]]. In the manga, her shadow is shown as a demon.²* Neko Musume in ''Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro'' was originally an aversion, but every animated installment builds her up to this trope. By the 90s, her feline features became limited to eyes and a few fangs, and by 2007 she was firmly on the "cute" side. Her 2018 incarnation takes the cake though; when she's not using her powers, she looks the most human and mature she's ever been, with only her sharp eyes indicating she's inhuman.²* ''Anime/GhostSweeperMikami'' has main character Okinu, a CuteGhostGirl, as well as the recurring antagonist and {{Ridiculously Human Robot|s}} Maria. [[spoiler:Not to mention what Mikami herself is revealed as]]. The series also has a few one-shot characters like a {{youkai}} desk and a dragon martial-arts trainer.²* Mayu of ''LightNovel/GoshuushouSamaNinomiyaKun''. For a succubus, she's cute, busty, and DoesNotLikeMen. She's training to work on the last part, though. Later, her [[spoiler:friend and love rival Reika]] is revealed to be a succubus as well, albeit without the Androphobia, instead having a healthy dose of CannotSpitItOut.²* This is the point of the ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' series, with bonus DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu levels. All the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s appear in completely humanoid (and rather cute) forms, but the most diabetes-inducingly cute character ([[spoiler:Hastur]]) is a boy.²* Most of the girls in ''Manga/InterviewsWithMonsterGirls'' (except [[TokenHuman Himari]]) are these, termed demi-humans in the universe. However, unlike in most cases, they look more like human than LittleBitBeastly.²* The anime ''Manga/InuYasha'' also has a lot of them. All female half-demons and very many female demons in human-like figure look very sweet, although we recognize that they are not human.²** Also all the male half-demons (except Jinenji) and very many male demons in human-like shape are bishounen.²* ''LightNovel/IsThisAZombie'': Virtually every female introduced, except Haruna, a MagicalGirl, and the [[ThoseTwoGirls two girls]] who are {{Muggle}}s.²* The animal people in ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon?'' could qualify, but they're not actually considered monsters in universe. [[spoiler: However, the Xenos ([[ItCanThink sapient versions of otherwise unthinking monsters]]) are. A DraconicHumanoid with an unusually human appearance ends up becoming a part of Bell's harem... and by extension, gets Bell into a lot of hot water, as Xenos suffer from FantasticRacism thanks to the perception that they must be AlwaysChaoticEvil.]] ²* Himemiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss,'' at least when she is in her human form. Her real form is a catfish demon.²%%* The title character of ''Manga/{{Karin}}'' (a.k.a, "Chibi Vampire")²* Niche from ''Manga/LetterBee'', as while her cuteness depends on who you ask, she certainly fills the monster and girl roles. And then there's [[spoiler:Niche's sister]]...²* Though the Zentradi from ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' and ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' are HumanAliens, the males range in appearance from ugly to average to handsome, with the occasional odd skin tone and/or cybernetic aspect, while the female Zentradi are always depicted as beautiful. The Zentradi designs in ''[[Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove Do You Remember Love?]]'' are probably the strongest examples of this trope.²* ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' gives us ''four'' Cute Monster Girls - a [[WolfMan werewolf]], a [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires vampire]], a [[CuteWitch witch]], and an [[RobotGirl android]]. The student council in ''LightNovel/DemonKingDaimao'' has the exact same four characters.²* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Evangeline, half of [[MagicalLand Magicus Mundus]], most prominently Fate's underlings, and Setsuna, a half-tengu and self-proclaimed monster ([[FreakinessShame not that anybody cares]]). And it appears [[spoiler:[[CuteMute Zazie]]]] is actually a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent mazoku]].²* Various female demons in ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha''. Most notable is Grand Princess Fire Dragon, who is herself an attractive rather petite woman with only token nonhuman features; her father is a ten-foot-tall barely-anthropomorphic dragon-man. Maou might technically count, though she doesn't appear to be anything other than completely human most of the time.²* All of the female dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' apply to a certain degree when they take on human or partially human forms. This isn't a racial trait either. Their human forms are explained as being their essence expressed as if they were born human. Ergo a dragon that is attractive by dragon standards will turn into a human that is attractive by human standards.²* Justified in ''Manga/MononokeSharing''. [[spoiler:It's explained near the end of the series that the entire mononoke race is slowly turning more human with every generation and will eventually lose their powers entirely due to the fact that they weren't part of the gods' plan for the Earth. [[HatesBeingAlone Momi]] created them to ease her lonliness while she waited several billion years for humanity to evolve.]]²* There is a whole sub-genre for redrawing mecha as girls wearing the machine as armor. It has gone so far as the Destroid ''Monster!'' But perhaps the ultimate mecha example is the [[ Valsion's]] entirely canon sister unit, the [[ Valsione]]. (Apparently the Valsion's operator made the Valsione for his daughter, who gave it a feminine form out of personal preference.)²* In ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' is also true, to some monsters. Pixie (later Granity), Lilim and Poison. They look like girls but horns, pointy ears and wings have like a bat. In addition, they are also clothed rather sparse.²* ''Manga/MonsterSoul'' has a few, with two of them being a mummy and a golem respectfully.²* ''Manga/MyBalls'' is all about cute monster girls.²* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' has a vampire, alien, "wolf-man", and other Cute Monster Girls hiding in plain sight at a high-school, as the principal is one herself. HilarityEnsues when an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent finds out when delivering a love letter.²* All of the female mermaids in ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid''. The males tend to be less "cute" and more "[[TestosteronePoisoning Manly]]". Except [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Masa]].²* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' features some girls with clearly inhuman features thanks to their [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Quirks]] such as [[LittleBitBeastly Tsuyu Asui]] (who has frog-like characteristics like large and elongated hands, feet, digits, limberness and a long tongue), [[RoseHairedSweetie Mina Ashido]] (who looks just like a normal girl except for having bright pink hair and skin, and a pair of horns/antenna in her head) and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Himiko Toga]] (has vampire-like characteristics like sharp teeth and thirst for blood). Tsuyu in particular went on to become a BreakoutCharacter for the series in part to her cute design.²* In Anime/{{Naruto}} while the males of the Sound Four all look hideous when they activate their [[OneWingedAngel cursed seals]] (even {{Bishonen}} dudes like Kimimaro and Sasuke), DarkChick Tayuya still looks [[ cute]] regardless. ²** When tapping into the Kurama (Nine Tails) Chakra or Sage Mode, Naruto can get Fox/Frog like features as result but even then he’s still more attractive compared to Orochimaru and Kabuto when they go all ScaledUp. ²** Kaguya has horns, pale skin dead eyes and other inhuman attributes. She’s still pretty attractive though. ²* Gainax's various merchandise for ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' includes the "Apostle XX" line of figurines, which takes several of the Angels and gives them a [[MoeAnthropomorphism female humanoid makeover]]. Technically, [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination Rei and Kaworu]]]] might count, though the latter is a Cute Monster Boy instead.²* Yuki-Onna/Tsurara from ''Manga/NuraRiseOfTheYokaiClan'', as well as a majority of the other humanoid female youkai.²* The titular "oddmen" of ''Oddman 11'' have most of its members within variable points of the monster-girl spectrum. For instance, Inuta is a full-on [[BeastMan dog furry girl]] (to the point of having six nipples), Ika-chan has several tentacles and a weird shaped head but otherwise regular female anatomy, while Kirara [[LittleBitBeastly only has cat ears and a tail]] and Tatari is a regular girl [[Main/{{Cyclops}} with a single eye]].²* Almost every member of the UnwantedHarem in ''Manga/OmamoriHimari''. There's a CatGirl with GagBoobs, a {{Meido}} tea-cup spirit with even bigger GagBoobs, a TokenMiniMoe water-snake spirit EmotionlessGirl, and a blood-thirsty {{Yandere}} forest spirit.²* ''Franchise/OnePiece'':²** The [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merpeople]]. The mermen (male) both have the tail of fishes and fish features on their upper bodies such as gills, spines and pointy teeth. The mermaids (female) all have the upper bodies of regular humans and are almost always dead-sexy.²** Stitches or not, undead Victoria Cindrey [[ is still pretty damn hot]]. ²** Depending on who you ask Boa Sandersonia is either {{Gonk}} or a cute snake lady. ²** Monet from Punk Hazard is a harpy and easy on the eyes. [[spoiler: Until she goes into her monster form thanks to the Snow Snow Fruit, that is.]]²** [[spoiler:Charlotte]] Praline is half mermaid half human and is rather easy on the eyes especially considering her mothers looks. ²** [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giant Women]] in One Piece e.g Gerth and Lily Enstomach from {{Filler}} are in incredibly attractive. ²** Female Minks e.g Wanda and Carrot are more curvaceous and humanoid than the male Minks but can still be dangerous beasts when the time calls for it.²** The female SMILE users of Kaido’s crew quality e.g [[OurCentaursAreDifferent Horse Girl Speed]], Spider-Monkey girl Solitaire and TheNameless [[ snake teacher]]. ²* Mosquito Girl in ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' looks human except for her insect-like limbs and wings. Though she is somewhat creepy-looking in the original webcomic, she gets a dose of AdaptationalAttractiveness in the manga and anime where she gains a [[ voluptuous build]]. ²* Scanty and Kneesocks, the demon sisters from ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt''.²* ''Petopeto San'' is entirely devoted to the concept of cute monster girls (some of which are [[HalfHumanHybrid half human]]).²* Shia, from ''Manga/PitaTen'', is a demon/demon's apprentice (depending on whether you're reading the manga or watching the anime,) but she looks completely human and is also very, very, very cute. The males in canon all fawn for her and many develop actual feelings for her, as well. Although, another demon is also shown, Klaus, and he's also cute in a shoujo kind of way, himself.²* ''Manga/PrincessResurrection'' has Riza Wildman; granted, she's at least half human, but the other half (and DEFINITELY the side she takes after) is a flesh tearing, vicious werewolf. There's also [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Reiri]] and [[RobotGirl Flande]], as well as the main character Hime [[spoiler:who's a phoenix in human form]], among a few others.²* ''Anime/RageOfBahamutGenesis'' has Amira. The young girl is a [[{{Nephilim}} hybrid of angel and demon]], and can [[VoluntaryShapeshifting change from her angelic form to her demonic form]]. In her angelic figure, she is very pretty and looks like an ordinary girl, except that her hair is pink and she has a fair skin. In her demonic form she looks much more frightening, but still qualifies for this tropus.²** This goes for many of the demon women on the Demon side of the conflict as well, including [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Rita]]. ''Virgin Soul'' also gives us Nina Drango, who is part of a Demon tribe that can tirn into dragons but is just as cute and perky as any other human girl her age.²* ''Anime/RagnarokTheAnimation'':²** Maya make friends with an "Alice" (a high-level humanoid monster). This is the impetus for explaining her DarkAndTroubledPast.²** Jiltus, being a half-human hybrid, is very cute if you like them evil.²* Every single girl except for Kyoko (Tsukune's cute but human cousin) in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire''. They spend the most of their time hiding their monster traits, though, so they look completely human except during fights, and when transformed the main gals (and many of the supporting cast) are STILL cute (Moka is devastatingly so, Kurumu becomes ultra exotic, etc.).²* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' combined this with ProgressivelyPrettier. The Youma and Cardians were, for the most part, fairly monstrous-looking. Droids, Daimons, Lemures and Phages were much more attractive; while there are a ''few'' monstrous ones, they were mostly beautiful women with [[LittleBitBeastly pointed ears and/or oddly colored skin.]]²* Graham from ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'' is a [[SpearCounterpart male version]]; he is a [[UglyCute unsettling-yet-endearing]] [[MixAndMatchCritter patchwork]] of {{Bishounen}} and Gothic horror monster (like [[Franchise/{{Frankenstein}} Frankenstein's Monster]] or Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera).²* The eponymous character of ''Manga/SquidGirl'' is an ''adorable'' squid-girl.²* ''LightNovel/SoICantPlayH'': All three of the shinigami females look human, until they assume [[TransformationSequence their true forms.]] Though they still [[LittleBitBeastly look mostly human]] afterward.²** Lisara: gains a small pair of bat wings that extend from the sides of her head and her irises change from red, to amber.²** Ilia's [[CuteLittleFangs fang]] enlarges slightly and a short gold and black horn grows from the center of her forehead.²** Quele's is the simplest transformation. She only grows a short pair of black horns on her head, which curve backward.²* The Seedrians from the third season of ''Anime/SonicX'' are like this. The males are monsters that transform into Godzilla-like creatures (and later become [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Decepticon-like]] robots...for reasons that aren't thoroughly explained...), but the females are cute plant-girls, and Tails falls in love with one named Cosmo.²* Holo from ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf'' is a ''very'' [[ cute girl]] with wolf ears and a big fluffy tail, both of which she keeps hidden under clothing when she wants to pass for human. Her true form is that of [[CanisMajor a wolf as large as a bus]], which is rather less cute.²* ''Manga/TodaysCerberus'' gives us humanoid versions of not just Cerberus but also Fenrir, Jormungand, and Orthrus.²* Hazuki from ''Anime/TsukuyomiMoonPhase''. Anyone unfamiliar with the story and character would NEVER assume she's a monster! The opening theme doesn't help.²* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'':²** Lum looks like a cute teenaged girl with green hair and little horns, but is explained as being an alien whose race is the [[AncientAstronauts inspiration]] for Japanese ogres. Her being such is actually lifted straight from Japanese mythology, where Oni women are supernaturally beautiful, but capable of [[DemonHead assuming fearsome visages when angry or jealous]].²** Lum's friend Oyuki (a yuki-no-onna -- although these ghosts are usually portrayed as attractive anyway) and secondary character Kurama (crow tengu -- her servants look like anthropomorphic crows, while she's a pretty girl with [[LittleBitBeastly small crow wings on her head]]). One might tentatively incorporate Ran (loosely based on the Gaki, a life-draining ghost) and Benten (a punk biker version of the Goddess of Knowledge, Art and Beauty) into this category as well.²* Merag, the only female Barian Emperor in ''Anime/YuGiOhZEXAL'' is cute in her own unique way [[spoiler:likely because she's very beautiful in her human form as Rio Kamishiro.]]²* Comprises over half the main cast of ''Manga/YuunaAndTheHauntedHotSprings''. Until Kogarashi moved in Sagiri was the only human at Yuragi-sou.²* Tons of them in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', especially during the tournament which features a cat-girl announcer and a dragon-girl referee. There are Monster Boys too, (Yoko) Kurama probably being the main one.²* ''Anime/ZombieLandSaga'' is about a rock band composed of cute girls who happen to be zombies.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Comic Books]]²* Komodo from ''ComicBook/AvengersTheInitiative'' got her powers by stealing Curt Connors' Lizard formula. But whereas the Lizard is a hulking, almost crocodilian monster with thick scales and an elongated reptilian head, Komodo just looks like an otherwise attractive girl who happens to have smooth green skin, pointy ears, NonMammalMammaries, reptilian eyes, claws, and a tail.²* ''ComicBook/FreaksSqueele'' has Chance, a nice spontaneous and [[CuteClumsyGirl somehow clumsy]] college girl ...Oh, and she has horns and bat wings.²* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' goes both ways; cute monster girls along with cute monster ''guys''.²* Gali, or Galacta, daughter of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}. She appears to be an attractive human woman.²* Delphyne Gorgon is a [[GorgeousGorgon Cute Gorgon]] from ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules''. She even wears a skimpy Goth-styled schoolgirl uniform.²* While the regular Comicbook/IncredibleHulk is generally seen as a berserk, hideously muscular, unintelligent monster when in Hulk form, ComicBook/SheHulk is just a somewhat larger, stronger, greener version of her human counterpart. Originally, the explanation was that an individual mutated by gamma rays subconsciously determines their transformed appearance; the Hulk transforms into a hulking angry brute because of Bruce Banner's repressed anger, the Abomination transforms into a hideous freak due to his inner self-loathing, and She-Hulk transforms into an AmazonianBeauty because of her subconscious desire to look like the ideal woman. ²** Though, it gets occasionally subverted from time to time with She-Hulk [[StatusQuoIsGod (always temporarily)]] gaining an uglier, more monstrous form. One such occurrence was during ''ComicBook/AvengersDisassembled'' after she lost control of herself as a result of the Scarlet Witch's manipulations.²* ''Comicbook/{{Invincible}}'' has a heroine who transforms into a monstrous form. While the monster transformation isn't exactly cute, the actual girl [[spoiler:who is really older than she appears]] is.²* Fantasia Faust, from the erotic fantasy comic ''ComicBook/{{Ironwood}}'', started out as a very bulky non-gendered iron golem designed to kill fae. Then her creator figured that the golem would be more effective if he made it really attractive and disguised the fact that it was made of iron. Then, once the fae were dealt with, he realized he had a super-strong, super-sexy non-human babe hanging around, and decided to explore a few fetishes of his.²* ComicBook/LadyDeath's villain {{ComicBook/Purgatori}} is a rather unique creature: a vampire distantly descended by [[FallenAngel fallen angels]]. She has a demonic appearance with crimson skin, horns and wing, but she still looks extremely gorgeous and tends to dress in {{Stripperiffic}} outfits.²* Creator/MarvelComics' Skrulls would often fit, with the males being bug eyed and inhuman, while their princess was quite fetching, and bereft of the Skrull chin ripple. Later artworks shows the males as more human-looking, and the females having unusually large eyes (but there was still some gap in attractiveness). Since they're a whole species of [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifters]] though, they can look however they want, and as ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' shows they can even switch genders at will.²* Lampshaded in an issue of ''Namor The ComicBook/SubMariner'', where all the women are akin to GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe while all Atlantean males are blue brutes, except for [[MightyWhitey Prince Namor]].²* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'' features plenty, given that most residents in Résurrection are reincarnated monsters the most attractive people would qualify as this trope: Most female vampires tended to be very fanservicey despite their rather fearsome appearance due to battle tattoos applied to their bodies, [[CuteGhostGirl female lamias]] tend to be very attractive for tortured spirits and some [[CatGirl Leopard Women]] are shown as part of harems. The biggest one would be Queen Perfidia of the Dystopians, an arguable example since she is more scary-looking than gorgeous, though she has a far more human-like appearance than the rest of her race, who all look like humanoid dinosaurs.²* ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' has Matthew Patel's demon hipster chicks.²* The ''Franchise/StarWars: Comicbook/{{Legacy}}'' comics have made almost a running gag of "prettying up" females of various alien races - [[ Darth Maladi]] and [[ Kee]] are good examples, and contrast [[ Nakia]], a female Anzat, with a [[ typical male example]] of the same species (at least her husband wasn't exactly ugly either). There's also a quite good-looking male Twi'lek (compared to the films, anyway) like Shado.²* ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' has many appearing throughout the series.²* ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'':²** Deliberately invoked with Miss Martian. Although she's genuinely female, as a White Martian, her true form is a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil ravenously carnivorous, xenophobic, insanely hostile]] creature considered an ugly monster even by Green Martians (who are pretty weird-looking themselves). It was implied in one issue that if she ever lost control and reverted to her true form, she'd be powerful enough to slaughter her teammates in a matter of minutes, and crazy enough that she'd try to do so. However, in addition to sealing off her malevolent instincts behind a psychic block, she uses her VoluntaryShapeshifting power to appear as a more successful and feminine take on "[[ComicBook/MartianManhunter Uncle John's]]" human form. The result is a cute, perky, teenage GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe, in contrast to J'onn J'onzz's appearance as a rather craggy-featured bald-headed green-skinned body builder. ²** Kid Devil is a SpearCounterpart case of this trope; he's a lean-yet-muscular teenage demon, with a handsome and very human-like face, looks mostly normal apart from the skin color, and [[WalkingShirtlessScene goes around shirtless most of the time]].²* ''{{ComicBook/Valhalla}}'': in one story, the [[Myth/NorseMythology jotun]] Tjasse bemoans the fact that his daughter Skade is so ugly that it is impossible to find a suitor for her. On the second page of his complaints, she turns around and we see her face, revealing that she may be ugly to a jotun but fairly good-looking to a god or human. Her usual countenance is still too severe for her to be called cute, until she is (literally) swept off her feet and has a silly, cute, enamoured grin take over her face.²* Common in various ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics, especially ''ComicBook/GenerationX''; most of the more monstrous mutations will be male, while the women are always sexy.²** BeautyEqualsGoodness is often going on there. For example, when she first showed up, Marrow had bones sticking out all over, including on her face. Later, she joined the X-Men, and it wasn't long before she was made more attractive, with most of the protrusions gone and those that remained looking like they could merely be part of her costume (her [[BuffySpeak prettification]] at least wasn't overnight for no reason other than being one of the good guys, story-wise). There are other examples, but she's probably the most obvious.²** The resident girl werewolf - Wolfsbane - is a bit of an inversion, having gone from having a odd/cute 'wolfweregirl' transitional form, to a 'The Howling'-style monstrous appearance.²** ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}}, DependingOnTheArtist, can be a fuzzy pretty boy with CuteLittleFangs.²** ComicBook/{{Jubilee}} becomes this after becoming a vampire.²* Lots and lots of them in ''[[Creator/PhilFoglio XXXenophile]]''.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Fan Works]]²* There's an [[MoeAnthropomorphism entire subgenre]] of global FanArt involving giving monsters from various sources the Cute Monster Girl treatment. It's not uncommon for them to also be shown "doing their thing", in order to bring the GrotesqueCute. The most famous of these is the ''Monster Girl Encyclopedia'' from UsefulNotes/{{Japan}}.²* In ''Fanfic/AkatsukiKittenPhoenixCorporationOverhaul'', Diamond (and supposedly the other Agents as well) can grow non-human features, in her case [[DevilInPlainSight devilish horns, slit red eyes, a devil's tail, large, dark red bat wings,]] CuteLittleFangs and all. Depending on how she's feeling, she can either make the fangs and wings enormous and eyes glowing enough to terrify a veteran demon-fighter, or she can shrink down the wings and fangs, make the eyes her normal brown, and just look adorable. [[GrotesqueCute Even if her arm is shoved through a man's chest and her face is covered in blood and a mad smile.]]²* ''FanFic/AnonymoosesMonsterGirlSaga'', being based on ''Monster Girl Encyclopedia'', naturally has many of these. The main character Laven has a BattleHarem comprising (at the time of writing) a [[PlayingWithFire Salamander]], an [[LittleBitBeastly Anubis]], a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Wyvern]], a [[BeePeople Mantis]] and a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Baphomet]].²* In ''FanFic/TheBridge'', Irys the Hyper Gyaos gets a human-like form upon entering the Equestria Girls world; having pronounced fangs, extremely pale skin; and all of her old powers. The bubbly goofball Megalon's EG World form arguably is a gender inverted example. [[spoiler: Aria Blaze's Kaizer Ghidorah based SuperMode counts as well.]]²* The ''VideoGame/{{Moemon}}'' GameMod for ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]]''. Your {{Mons}} become, well, {{Moe}} Mons. And [[ oh god]], [[MoeAnthropomorphism they're Moe]].²* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom there are cute monster ponies. There exist the same kinds of things found in the Monster Girl Encyclopedia like slimes and mermaids (seaponies), with [[ moth ponies]] and [[ bat ponies]] being quite popular ([[StrangeMindsThinkAlike the latter became canon at around the same time the fans were making it up]]), and some ''truly'' strange creations like [[ tatzlponies]][[note]]A hybrid of a pony and that massive worm thing from "Three's A Crowd"[[/note]] and (take a breath) [[ a sentient hive-mind mass of tentacles that have infested a pony costume because they are lonely]].²* The [[ Pokemon Gijinka Project]], in the same vein as ''Moemon''.²* Fans of ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' have created the [[ "MonStar"]] AU, where a benevolent Toffee married Star's mother. Star mostly looks the same build wise, but also have a mouth full of razor sharp teeth (which turns into CuteLittleFangs when her mouth is closed), gray skin, a tail, her mother's hair color, and a much darker color palette on her clothes.²* In ''FanFic/ResonanceDays'', all of the [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Witches]] killed revert to a synthesis of their Human and Witch form. [[spoiler:Sayaka]] is a mermaid for example.²* ''FanFic/TravelsThroughAzerothAndOutland'' plays with this trope in the character of Daj'yah. Daj'yah is a troll described as being mildly attractive by human standards (she probably has the "cutefase" appearance seen on many female troll avatars in-game). Unfortunately for her, other trolls think she's hideous because of this.²* The Kaiju Girls of Daikaiju Academy, part of ''[[ Twisted Kaiju Theater]]''.²* ''Fanfic/TheTyrantAndTheHero'', being a ''Monster Girl Quest'' fanfic, revolves around these. One of the two main characters is a monster girl, although she prefers to go around in a human form.²* When Creator/{{Nintendo}} announced ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU [[UpdatedRerelease Deluxe]]'' and the inclusion of Toadette and her exclusive Super Crown PowerUp which allows her to take on a form resembling Princess Peach (dubbed Peachette), fans started thinking about what would have happened if the Super Crown worked on [[BigBad Bowser]]. It is this idea that gave birth to the massively popular JustForFun/{{Bowsette}} -- part Peach, part Bowser, all monster girl.²* In ''FanFic/TheLoudAwakening'', all Loud Sisters sans Lily (who avoided that fate) and [[{{Cyborg}} Lisa]] are transformed into monster girls; hybrid forms of cryptids and mythical beasts attuned to their powers. This also inspired their codenames. [[HumanoidAbomination Lucy]] is more CreepyCute, however.²* ''FanFic/MyAbominableMonsterClassmatesCantBeThisCute'' features a Grimmified [[{{WebAnimation/RWBY}} Team RWBY]] who are attracted on some level to Jaune Arc.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Films -- Animation]]²* Creator/AngelinaJolie as Grendel's Mother in the 2007 film ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' (she has high heels... and doesn't wear shoes), though it's implied to be ShapeShifting: reflected bits of her [[OneWingedAngel true form]] are visible during her time with Grendel, and a keen observer will see her posing as a part of her treasure-hoard when Beowulf first comes to confront her, looking like a very fishy, naga sort of creature.²* Emily, the ''Film/CorpseBride'', is quite fetching, considering she has been dead for a bit of time when she finally emerges following Victor's [[AccidentalProposal accidental proposal]]. Piss her off, though, and those same cute features can quickly turn to NightmareFuel.²* Mavis Dracula in ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania'', a vampire girl with a pixie haircut and CuteLittleFangs. ²* Eva from ''WesternAnimation/{{Igor}}'', even though she was made to look monstrous and be evil, she still has a very pretty look.²* Celia from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc''. ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' meanwhile splits this trope down the middle: Claire Wheeler and the MU sororities, especially Python Nu Kappa and Slugma Slugma Kappa sisters, do have their "cute side". Although, like the Eta Hiss Hiss sisters being split down in the middle (although they prove to be more "monstrous" than "cute" because they WANT it that way), PNK and EEK show their scary sides as determined in the Scare Games. Dean Hardscrabble herself does not exactly have a "cute" side, but she is considered to be quite beautiful despite her terrifying appearance. Female monsters in both films prove to be mostly a mix of both, despite completely differed from humans. Then again, EVERY monster girl introduced into the films is pretty gorgeous, just look at Brynn Larson and even Sonia Lewis.²* Ginormica from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens''. Your basic white-haired girl, [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever super-economy size]].²* Sally the rag doll, from ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'' is very pretty despite being covered in stitches with blue skin with a GlasgowGrin.²* ''All'' of the students at Miss Grimwood's in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' qualify as this. [[{{Mummy}} Tanis]] gets a special mention, being the youngest of them.²* Fiona of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' is still fairly pretty for an ogress, despite indulging in the usual icky ogre habits.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]²* The eponymous character in ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' certainly counts, being played by the gorgeous Elsa Lanchester. Although she only gets a few minutes of screen time, she's memorable enough to become one of the most famous Universal monsters.²* The ''Shadow over Innsmouth''-based BMovie ''Film/{{Dagon}}'' throws in a Deep One Cute Monster Girl by way of OurMermaidsAreDifferent. They still get to play the initial reveal of her monstrous, octopoidal features for horror somehow. This trope allows the movie to play a [[spoiler:romantic angle on the original TomatoInTheMirror ending]], giving it minor justification.²* ''Film/DarkAngelTheAscent'': Even in her demonic form (pretty much what you'd expect: bat wings, claws, and horns), Veronica is rather cute.²* The ghost in ''Film/DeadFriend'' (aka The Ghost) was pretty cute, despite the rotting clothes and waterlogged hair/skin. At least, she was cute before she died.²* The eponymous character of ''Film/DeadGirl'' is pretty good-looking... although probably not dating material, given everything that happens after she's found.²* [[ Greta, the female gremlin]] from ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch''. Technically, not a girl, since gremlins reproduce asexually, but looks and ''behaves'' like one. Resulted from gremlins [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke playing in a genetics lab]]. [[spoiler:So cute, that authors did not kill her with the rest of gremlins.]]²* In ''Film/TheHowling'', the werewolves are giant, long-snouted and frightening, but when [[spoiler:Dee Wallace]] turns into one, it's cute and fluffy.²* A rare male example comes up in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''. All the goblins are diminutive, monstrous creatures with wart infested skin and bizarre bone structures... except for their king, Jareth, who just looks like Music/DavidBowie [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment with make up on]] (and ''[[MrFanservice very very tight pants]]'').²* The females of Chaka's people in ''Series/LandOfTheLost'' might qualify. The males look like they did in the series (i.e. like humanoid chimps). The females are {{Nubile Savage}}s.²* In ''Film/LetTheRightOneIn'', [[UndeadChild Eli]] fits this trope, though it isn't clear whether she's a victim of her circumstances or deliberately exploiting it to get new [[TheRenfield Renfields]].²* In the fifties film ''Film/TheMolePeople'', a girl named Adad was born to a race of subterranean albinos, but has none of their features, and thus is hated and shunned by her folk. One of the archaeologists falls madly for her and promises to help her escape this hell with them. Sadly [[DownerEnding Adad is killed by a falling pillar moments after she sees the surface world for the first time]].²* ''Film/TheMummy2017'' has Ahmanet, who's very pretty...once she devours enough lifeforce, that is. ²* ''Film/{{Penelope}}'': Penelope herself. Though she is cursed with the "face of a pig", she really just has a pig nose and easily hidden pig ears. Though there are a few characters who run in horror, she's actually quite cute, something that's unsurprising considering she's basically Creator/ChristinaRicci with a snout. A few characters even mention how mostly normal she looks. [[spoiler:In the end, it turns out that accepting herself as she is, pig nose and all, is the key to breaking the curse.]]²* A [[UncannyValley thoroughly creepy]] version of this trope arises in ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes2001''. All of the characters playing apes were made to look like gorillas, chimps, etc. Helena Bonham Carter, on the other hand, looked... well, like Helena Bonham Carter in chimp make-up, eyeshadow, and lipstick. She and the other female chimps (including one played by Tim Burton's ladyfriend Lisa Marie) even had humanlike eyebrows, which was thoroughly bizarre to see on a chimpanzee face. Contributing to the weirdness of the situation, she spent the entire movie flirting with the male ''human'' lead, [[InterspeciesRomance and then he kisses her at the end!]]²* Zombie Julie in ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead3'' still looks pretty cute even after she impales most of her body with metal spikes and glass shards to stave off the pain of undeath.²* In ''Film/{{Species}}'', Sil is still pretty hot in her alien form. The creature designers specifically wanted her to still be beautiful as an alien.²* Dren in ''Film/{{Splice}}''. The Fetish Fuel angle to her is played up to the hilt.²* In ''Film/Venom2018'', [[spoiler:Eddie's love interest Ann quickly bonds with the symbiote and becoming She-Venom. And unlike her male counterpart, she has a very shapely and voluptuous figure instead of a bulky one when Eddie turns into Venom]]. ²* ''Film/{{VHS}}'': While she's still undeniably creepy both in her human and bat/vampire/nymphomaniac thing form, Lily (from the "Amateur Night" segment) fits this trope.²* Garona of ''Film/WarCraft2016''. She's a literal GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe with small orc-like tusks, and fairly beautiful by human standards.²* ''Film/XMenFirstClass'': The scaly and blue-skinned Raven Darkholme as a little girl is absolutely adorable when Charles Xavier first meets her, and he treats her like a friend right away.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Literature]]²* SF&F artists and illustrators love the concept. This may reflect the contents of the books they illustrate [[CoversAlwaysLie or not]]. Examples include (some NSFW due to naked breasts):²** [[ Boris Vallejo]].²** [[ Fredrik K T Andersson]].²** [[ Julie Bell]].²** [[ Luis Royo]].²** [[ Rowena Morrill]].²* Junapur, in ''Literature/{{Cerberon}}'', is described as quite beautiful despite her various nonhuman traits and imposing Amazon physique.²* Serendipity Sargasso, the siren secretary in the MonsterMash neo-noir ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' and ''Literature/FiftyFeetOfTrouble'' is pretty darn cute. Assuming she doesn't smile. Jane Stitch, the [[FrankensteinsMonster meat golem]] of the third book in the series, ''Literature/WolfmanConfidential'', also qualifies.²* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Her Imperial Bugginess the [[HiveQueen Vord Queen]] ''tries'', but mostly just manages to [[UncannyValley give everyone the creeps]] by combining a "[[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green]] Kitai with RapunzelHair" look with a few too many insectile features and a frightening lack of understanding of human emotion.²* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books female Igors, known as Igorinas, are every bit as svelte and beautiful as their male counterparts are deformed, hunchbacked, and misshapen. Handwaved by the fact that Igors of both sexes are crazy-talented at all forms of surgery, including plastic, and as Igors are devoted followers of "tradithion" it is probably that male Igors remain ugly because male assistants to {{Mad Scientist}}s are ''supposed'' to be ugly, just as female assistants are meant to be beautiful. There is only one subversion in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' with [[spoiler:well, Igor; although this is something of a continuity bust, because the character is part of the overall Sweet Polly Oliver scenario, and no one seems to spot this]].²* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' most of the female inhuman monsters Harry encounters are extraordinarily beautiful but equally scary, and many of them have, literally, wanted to eat him. It's mentioned in ''Skin Games'' that this is why he and Binder are instinctively leery about Ascher's advances. [[spoiler:Ascher is Lasciel's new host at the time, making their caution completely justified.]]²* ''Literature/TheForsakenChildren'' has several monster girls in it, most notably Mary, the undine changeling (who's described as being both piscine and voluptuous).²* Most of the girls in Creator/SeananMcGuire's ''Literature/InCryptid'' novels.²* From the ''Literature/SeekersOfTruth'', Natalie Beckett aka Golem. Fairly attractive if you can ignore the stone skin. And apparently her boyfriend, Timothy Landerman aka Echidna, can. It helps that he's a venomous lobster-man.²* In Creator/CharlesStross's novel ''Literature/TheJenniferMorgue'', we meet Ramona Random, a Deep One hybrid who's knock-out gorgeous even after she drops her glamour. It's mentioned in the story that Deep One hybrids generally tend to be very attractive, as this aids in achieving their design purpose of serving as effective ambassadors to the surface world.²* ''Literature/MoreInformationThanYouRequire'' features a Cute Monster Girl mole-man as part of a BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy gag. [[spoiler: She's this universe's version of Sally Hemings.]]²* The female warlocks in ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' and ''Literature/TheDarkArtifices'' see very often like this. They warlocks look so like normal girls, just that they have physical characteristics that show their demonic relatives, as horns, hooves, wings, claws or tails.²* Robert Asprin's ''Literature/MythAdventures'' series includes a dimension called Trollia where the males are all hulking monsters and the females are all drop-dead sexy. The explanation: The males are [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls]], and the females are [[MsFanservice Trollops]].²* The German booklet series ''Maddrax'' has the mendrites. They are [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrids]] of [[FishPeople hydrites]] and humans. And female mendrites also qualify for this trope. They look almost human, but also have some fish body parts.²* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' has several nymphs. They look like ordinary girls, but they have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair unusual haircuts]]. They are also described as exceptionally pretty.²** There's also the [[SnakePeople dracaenae]], the serpent women who, once you get past the snake tails in place of legs and the vertical pupils, are in fact very beautiful.²* ''Literature/SandmanSlim'' has Candy, who is probably the bubbliest and most cheerful character in the series, despite being a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire-esque killing machine called a Jade]]. Aside from a few slip ups, [[VegetarianVampire she's trying to cut back]].²* In Piers Anthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' novels, female goblins are described as being far more attractive than male goblins. On the other hand, male harpies are handsome while the females are almost always ugly. A war was nearly started once when a female goblin and male harpy figured this out and started dating. And way far back in history, a war ''was'' started when the harpy males preferred the goblin females. Female harpies get unusually ugly when they have to mate with humans and vultures to reproduce their species, and ''all'' harpies produced by crossing harpies with humans or vultures are female, and so the cycle became vicious on several levels. It probably took TimeTravel to fix that mess.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Live-Action TV]]²* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', Raina gains bright gold eyes, a beak-like nose, PointedEars and sharp thorns on ([[PainfulTransformation and inside]]) her body after undergoing [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Terrigenisis]]. She first perceives it as BodyHorror, but as she grows more confident, she begins to own her new look.²* Little Ghoul on ''Series/{{Beetleborgs}}'' was a variation of the theme, "cute" in the same way an eight-year-old little girl [[LittleMissSnarker (although a rather precocious one)]] was cute. However, the reason she kept her face hidden behind her hood was because it was [[BrownNote so incredibly terrifying that no-one could bear to look at it.]]²* Franchise/{{Buffyverse}}, Joss Whedon being Joss Whedon this trope happens more often in both [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] and [[Series/{{Angel}} Angel]]. Though to his credit, hideous monster girls are more common²** Anya despite having a pretty hideous [[ demon-half]] is still gorgeous as human, Xander loved her deeply despite his bad experiences with female demon prior. ²** The [[ female Oracle]] from Angel. ²** Illyria from Angel. An EldritchAbomination trapped in a human corpse, her only non-human attributes (physically, at least) are blue lines on her face and blue streaks in her hair. ²** The female half-demon Pearl (from the comics) also looks like this. She a little looks elvish. But still she is very vicious. ²* ''Series/DoctorWho'':²** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E2TheHandOfFear "The Hand of Fear"]]: Eldrad's female form.²** ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' features a "[[HotterAndSexier sexy]]" half-transformed Cyberwoman, even though the Cybermen in ''Doctor Who'', whether constructed from men or women, look exactly the same. For this reason, the episode is somewhat infamous.²** As of the Matt Smith era, the female Silurians are [[ this]]. Though they hide their features with more reptilian masks, when the Doctor takes the mask off first words out his mouth are [[{{Understatement}} "You're beautiful"]].²* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': War Minister Ahkna is noticeably more attractive and shorter than the rest of the Scarran species; most of whom that have been seen are male (we think). She's still quite [[TheReptilians reptilian]], but it's a smoother, sleeker, sexier kind of reptilian than most Scarrans we've seen. The Scarran Emperor looks similar to Ahkna (though not nearly as short), and the "We're So Screwed" arc makes it explicit that Scarrans have [[HiveCasteSystem different castes]], and based on diet. Eating a rare flower (which grows commonly on Earth, to our hero's dismay once he learns how important it is) makes Scarrans more intelligent, and coincidentally look more human.²* Crowley in ''Series/GoodOmens2019'' is a male ([[OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous usually]]) example, although he might be a little old to be called "cute." (Creator/DavidTennant was in his late forties at the time of filming, and Crowley is [[TimeAbyss older than humanity]].) The other humanoid demons are very grimy-looking and usually have some obvious animalistic or monstrous features, such as Hastur, Ligur, and Beelzebub's {{Head Pet}}s or Dagon's facial scales and ScaryTeeth. As well as being the only minion of Hell who seems familiar with the concept of soap, Crowley dresses stylishly and looks like a reasonably attractive auburn-haired human with a mild case of VillainousCheekbones, [[YellowEyesOfSneakiness yellow]] [[AnimalEyes snake eyes]], and black feathered wings.²* In ''Series/{{Grimm}}'', the various Wesen races all have an [[GameFace alternative form]], called a ''woge''. Some, like Rosalie (a ''Fuchsbau'', or fox girl), fit this trope. Others, like the ''[[WickedWitch Hexenbiest]]'', [[BodyHorror don't.]]²* In ''Series/{{Lexx}}'', Zev Bellringer, part cluster lizard, part love slave.²* Marilyn Munster in ''Series/TheMunsters''. Unlike the other members of the family, she looks like a normal -- and beautiful -- human girl (although the other members of the family see her as ugly). She shares some of the other members' inhumanness like her very low body temperature.²* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': In the episode "Quality of Mercy", a captured SpaceCadet (Nicole De Boer) is being forcibly transformed by her alien captors into one of their own against her will. The slow alterations they implement don't change her outward beauty much, and her cellmate, Major John Stokes, falls in love with her. [[spoiler:This was part of their plan all along, since she's actually one of the aliens sent to spy on him to obtain valuable military information.]]²* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Elia, the Wraith girl from the episode "[[Recap/StargateAtlantisS02E07Instinct Instinct]]". The unsettling appearance of the life-sucking bug-human hybrid girl can't hide Creator/JewelStaite underneath the facial prosthetics. Her caretaker originally decided to raise her as his daughter because he couldn't bring himself to kill her.²* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':²** Though most [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Borg]] of any sex don't look particularly appealing, the Borg queen is decidedly sexier looking than any of her drones. Also, [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven of Nine]] is quite attractive but only once most of her more Borg-like physical attributes are removed via surgery.²*** Even when Seven is still fully Borg she has noticeable ...implants. Apparently [[BuxomIsBetter breasts are not irrelevant]], despite the existence of Borg maturation chambers.²** The Vidiians suffer from [[BodyHorror a disfiguring disease called the Phage]], but strangely the Doctor's love interest Denara Pel still retains some of her facial good looks. At least more than any other Vidiian we see.²** In ''Star Trek VI'', Rosanna De Soto's Klingon character had much less pronounced brow ridges than most of the male Klingons. But then, so did Christopher Plummer.²** Klingons fall into this trope even in ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. In the episode "Day of the Dove" we get to see both Klingon men and women. The men all have brutish expressions concealed under thick {{Blackface}} makeup while the women have spray on tans, and garish blue eye shadow. The retconned explanation for the more humanoid Klingons is that they were engineered to look like humans for easier interaction, so it'd be logical for the females to be attractive to humans.²* In ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', though they all look human, the male reapers usually look like balding old people that can keel over anytime, while female reapers are all at least conventionally attractive. The first time we see a female reaper it resembles a shade with wild hair. It then disguises itself as a conventional human to interact with Dean and later outright says that a reaper is [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith seen however the reaper chooses to be perceived]].²* A common trope with ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villainesses. The majority of villain teams are 3-4 male PeopleInRubberSuits and one hot (and very human) DarkChick whose monster-ness clearly appears to be worn and not integral (often, there will also be one older male human leading them). Of ''Power Rangers'' series, every season has one except ''[[Series/PowerRangersZeo Zeo]]'', ''[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Mystic Force]]'', and every season after ''[[Series/PowerRangersRPM RPM]]'' -- which all still have attractive female villainesses, just of the rubber suit variety. There are even a few [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] who might qualify, such as [[Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy Icy Angel]], but they tended to be rare.²** [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Scorpina]]/[[Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger Lamia]] is an attractive young woman in gold armor normally, but when [[MakeMyMonsterGrow gigantified]] looks like a horrible, lizard-faced scorpion monster.²** [[Series/PowerRangersZeo Archerina]], wife of Prince Gasket, is a very pretty robot girl. She's also manipulative and uses her magic love arrows to turn her opponents on each other.²** [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Vypra]] looks like a beautiful woman in demonic armor more than a demon. She's also the only one to look mostly human out of her show's antagonists.²** [[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Itassis]], the only female of the Ten Terrors, is a pretty, sphinx-like monster who ends up turning good and being one of the few to survive the series. Serpentina, a MonsterOfTheWeek, similarly has has some appealing features but in contrast is vile inside. Necrolai isn't so pretty, but she too reforms and reverts to a human form.²** [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Dayu]] looks like she might be quite the looker under that squid-like helmet. Unless it's actually her head.²** [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Levira]] has one of the less monstrous designs for her series. [[spoiler:She doesn't last, though.]] Similarly, Metal Alice is on the more human-like and alluring side. [[spoiler:She doesn't last, either.]]²** [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Poisandra]] ''thinks'' she is, but her cuteness is skin-deep. And less cute than she thinks, what with the zipper mouth and creepy mask on her heart. Her Japanese counterpart Candelila plays it completely straight, complete with a human form. The series also has a Cute Monster Boy in Heckyll.²* Pretty much every werewolf (male and female) in ''Series/TeenWolf''. Even when they transform, they look essentially the same besides the addition of claws, fangs, and glowing eyes. This extends beyond the werewolves as well. It's hard to think of any monster girl on the show that isn't cute.²* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'':²** Frankie Stein, who's a cute, if very tall, girl with a rubber forehead attachment.²** Alex and Harper when they're pretending to be werewolves in "Meet the Werewolves".²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Music]]²* For Finnish monster rock band Music/{{Lordi}}, their first pianist, Enary, was a blonde valkyrie who was still gorgeous despite having an extra mouth. They've since averted it with their new pianist, Awa, a ghostly witch who's as creepy as they come (although still arguably cuter than most of the male monsters.)²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Myths & Religion]]²* In at least one source of Myth/ClassicalMythology (The Ovid), female [[OurCentaursAreDifferent centaurs]] are described as being quite comely. ²* The Asura in Myth/HinduMythology and Buddhist myth: all the males are ugly and all the females are beautiful. And both are very violent.²* Myth/NorseMythology:²** The jotuns (giants) were typically pretty butt-ugly, but the female jotuns were comely enough that a lot of the Aesir married one (or nine...). Loki is somewhat an exception to this rule, being handsome despite giant ancestry (it's not clear whether he is a full or half giant). He's also a shapeshifting trickster god, so who knows what he really looks like, and his children were mostly horrible monsters.²** Huldra, nymphs with cow or fox tails (and optionally hollow backs, like a tree trunk), especially since they're usually considered to be female [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]].²** Valkyries (like gorgons) are female creatures that were originally hideous but later on became to be known as incredibly beautiful maidens sought after by many a Norse hero (despite the fact that they weren't actually human). Also they're really only "beasts" depending on your interpretation of their title: Choosers of the Slain.²* [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Mermaids]] can be this depending on which myth you follow.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Podcasts]]²* Season 4 of ''Podcast/DiceFunk'' has Algernon Sharp, a bishonen medusa boy who dresses in a flashy display of fashion. His eyes can't petrify you because he takes medication to prevent it, it's that kind of world.²* The ''Jade Regent'' Campaign from ''Podcast/RPGMP3'' features a character called Misty the [[HornyDevils Succubus]]. Misty is a [[TheDitz bubbly]], [[BrainlessBeauty bouncy]], [[DumbBlonde charmingly naïve]] teenage girl with [[BuxomIsBetter talents that make her invaluable to the team]]. She also happens to be a demonic Succubus from the deepest pits of the Abyss, who enjoys long walks on the beaches by the lakes of fire and brimstone, and [[CreepyGood occasionally starts singing while disemboweling people with her claws]]. She's really a very nice person, once you get to know her.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Roleplay]]²* ''Roleplay/Bay12MonsterGirls'' is essentially an entire world of them. And so is its [[Roleplay/Bay12MonsterGirlsV2 sequel.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Tabletop Games]]²* In ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' a woman who has become a draconic Fairest is this by default, as Fairest are "the fairest of them all", and draconics have aspects of the Great Beasts of Faerie, such as [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin dragons]].²* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':²** Medusas, [[GorgeousGorgon unsurprisingly]], [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzag]] depending on the edition. Those in 1st edition were horribly ugly, 2nd edition made them very comely if you could look past the snake hair (without being TakenForGranite), 3rd edition kept the comely bodies but the effect was somewhat marred by the scales [[ButterFace and a face that looked like a cross between a viper and a hag]], and 4th edition seems to go for a middle-of-the-road approach. ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' (aka [[FanNickname D&D 3.75]]), meanwhile, takes the "playmate with mildly scaly skin and snakes for hair" road.²** Advanced (2nd edition) and 4th edition also features a gender flipped version -- there are indeed male Medusas, but apart from being [[BaldOfEvil bald]], they're actually pretty handsome. This is the only way they differ from normal humans in 2e, and 4e's versions are scaly like their ladyfolk, so for them the baldness isn't that bad).²** ''The Fiendish Codex: Hordes of the Abyss'' introduces Obyriths, outrageously bizarre demons (as opposed to the more humanoid Tanar'ri) whose forms exude such a primal ''[[EldritchAbomination wrongness]]'' that looking at them can do permanent damage to your mind. Their queen has a "soft, feminine form," though it would be hard to describe her as cute, but then you find out that that's just the veil surrounding her, which formed because the plane of ultimate, horrible madness that spawned her ''refuses to accept that she is real''. If looking at her true form doesn't simply kill you, it is because [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm your brain didn't register what she looked like in the first place]]. And if you die from it and get resurrected, you don't remember what you saw.²** ''TableTopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'''s driders (spider-centaurs) are sexually dimorphic. The females look like beautiful drow women from the waist up (except for the fangs), and their black widow-like lower bodies have a certain elegant sleekness. The males have bulkier and more arachnid features.²*** The Kytons, a race of sadomasochistic evil outsiders known as "Chain Devils", were traditionally portrayed as humans wrapped up like mummies in so many layers of chains that nothing can be seen. The Kyton in the Pathfinder Bestiary? Is depicted as a shapely, blue-and-purple-skinned yellow-eyed woman who wears nothing but chains wrapped around her body to just barely hide her face, nipples and loins, leaving the rest of her largely bare. True, her body is also covered in dozens of fine scars, but these are subtle and don't really detract from her general attractiveness. Definitely a case of the cute monster girl still acting monstrous, however, as the racial profile as sadomasochistic kidnappers and hedonists remains pretty much identical to earlier editions.²** All editions of the game are chock full of these, including gender-inverted versions. The odds of a Cute Monster Girl or Guy rise exponentially if that creature is being portrayed sympathetically. Tieflings are descended from fiendish creatures and often play this trope straight. Genasi and the various races like them are touched by elemental blood and often depicted as quite attractive. An occasional handsome or NubileSavage half-orc or even full orc will not surprise players. And then there are the not-that-monstrous sorts like tritons, merfolk, various nymphs, fae, giants, and so on, all of whom have a decent chance to be attractive in human eyes. In short, BeautyEqualsGoodness is frequently, but not always, in effect. Evil races get their chances, such as various yuan-ti creations of serpent people. Even demons and devils get in on it. Most versions are horrific, but [[HornyDevils those specifically intent on seduction and temptation]] are frequently beautiful. And for a broad enough definition of "Monster," so do the celestial races, as they usually represent angels or even good takes on TheFairFolk (pre-4th Eladrin and Pathfinder's Azata).²* ''TabletopGame/{{Malifaux}}'' gives us the Neverborn, a literal race of Nightmares, including Pandora and Lilith, the latter described as "the very image of woman that creation intended, the beautiful vision that haunts the dreams of men", the former only being on the verge of adulthood.²* In ''TabletopGame/MaidRPG'', due to the rather random nature of the character generation system, it is very likely that at least one of your maids is gonna end up as one from the start.²* Used to its fullest in the ''TabletopGame/{{Talislanta}}'' game-setting with the [[BizarreSexualDimorphism Batrean race]], whose females are [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe green-haired space babes]] (except when they're ''[[FlipFlopOfGod blue]]''-haired) with [[LoveIsInTheAir seductive pheromones]], and whose males are gangling hairy ogres. Technically also true of the singular race of Gnorls and Weirdlings, although not for the usual reasons: Although Gnorls (the females) look like someone's 80-year-old grandma, that's ''still'' prettier than their male counterparts, the Weirdlings (who look like anorexic Yodas in their skivvies).²* ''Tabletopgame/YuGiOh'': ²** [[ Fabled Krus]], who also appears to be a ShrinkingViolet.²** [[ Traptrix]] archetype visually resemble young girls in their own artworks, but based on the artwork of [[ Traptrix Trap Hole Nightmare]], they are either vicious creatures in disguise, or they play bait to trap prey for their "pets"²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Theatre]]²* Kate Monster from ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' was going to have a lot of fuzz, similar to Trekkie Monster, but was shaved before production so she would look better with a male (and human) love interest.²* ''Theatre/PeerGynt'' meets and falls in lust with a beautiful maiden who turns out to be the daughter of the troll king.²* Magda in ''Theatre/TanzDerVampire'' becomes a gorgeous vampiress after she's bitten (though some actresses in the part do subvert this by applying some rather distorted makeup after she's been turned). In addition, sometimes female chorus vampires fall into this as well. [[spoiler:Sarah is one by the end of the show, without exception between actresses.]] Herbert's a rather cute monster ''boy''.²* The Music/{{Tsukiuta}} and Music/{{Tsukipro}} stage plays feature the {{yokai}} AU setting, where all the idols are Cute Monster Boys. Rui is a cute {{Karakasa}}, Kai and Tsubasa are cute (or hot) {{tengu}}, Hajime and Shun are cute {{kitsune}} (who may also be gods of life and death), Ichiru and Issei are kamaitachi, Rikka is a (male) YukiOnna, and so on. Three of the stage plays featured this setting. Kurenai Enishi also featured original tengu characters, but they appeared more or less human. Only Hajime and Shun had [[LittleBitBeastly monster attributes]] in that production. ²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Toys]]²* ''Toys/MonsterHigh'' is Mattel's current big hit whose entire line is based off this trope.²* MGA's toyline Toys/NoviStars, though they're technically Cute ''Alien'' Girls.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Visual Novels]]²* Hanyuu from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has a pair of horns, one of which is slightly chipped. [[spoiler:She had the horns back when she was human, hinted to be because of a genetic defect. Her horns were the main reason she was chosen to be a sacrifice.]]²* ''Love At First Sight'' centers around Sachi Usui, a shy and physically-battered cyclops who suffers from bullying.²* The titular Saya from ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' is adorable in the eyes of the protagonist, but [[spoiler:her true form is implied to be the farthest thing from cute, since any normal person who sees her is [[BrownNote driven insane]]. The only reason the protagonist sees her as attractive is because of an extreme case of agnosia that causes him to see everything as hideous, and the only truly hideous thing in his life as beautiful. The more he falls in love with her, [[SanitySlippage the worse]] [[AxCrazy he gets]]. Not to mention, she may be a cute monster girl, but she is still a ''monster''- i.e. a predatory creature with an [[BlueAndOrangeMorality alien sense of morality]]]].²* ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'': Akiha is pretty cute, there's Arcueid, and Nanako is a half human half unicorn spirit that's the MoeAnthropomorphism of the Seventh Scripture.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Animation]]²* The ghost girl from ''WebAnimation/BamanPiderman''.²* ''WebAnimation/TheSpiderCliffMysteries'': Crystal (demon) and Annabelle (zombie).²* The flash cartoon series ''Primal War'' is notorious/loved by teenage boys for its cartoony, monstrous males being drastically different to their more human-like and realistically proportioned females for both the beast and dino races.²* Cordie the [[SpiderPeople spider girl]] (although she also seems to have features of other archnids) from ''WebAnimation/CliffSide'' has [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four]] pincers for hands, four spider legs under her dress, can shoot strong web lines, her two large eyes are actually made of bunches of four smaller eyes, she's incredibly naive, and has an enormous crush on Waylon, the [[BlatantLies shamelessly fraudulent]] protagonist who she was originally planning on eating. She's adorably cute ([[NightmareFace most of the time]]).²-->'''Cordie:''' I'm going to eat you now. ''Nom!''²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Webcomics]]²* 565-14 in ''Webcomic/AllenTheAlien'' is a cute young alien girl, but she is too young to be a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe.²* In ''Webcomic/BasketsOfGuts'' most of the female cast are this.²* ''ComicBook/BuckGodotZapGunForHire'' has [[ Hyraxx D'mofiti]] as well as some of the girls employed at the [[ Velvet Fist]].²* The demon heroine Raven in ''[[ Demonology 101]]'' is a cute teenage girl whose only demonic attributes are reddish eyes and [[UnusualEars oddly shaped ears]] (in her case Raven is [[spoiler:only a half-demon]]). The other demons portrayed (both male and female) are also fairly human-looking (and usually somewhat attractive).²* ''Webcomic/DevilsCandy'' has cute monsters of both genders attending the AllGhoulsSchool Hemlock Heart Academy.²* ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'' subverts this for laughs: [[AnythingThatMoves Aragorn]] assumes that the Ents will be attractive, Dryad-like PlantPeople and is [[ quite dismayed]] to meet a craggy old tree with a bearded face instead.²--> '''Aragorn:''' Oh, like Dryads? ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' had Dryads in it... They're like sexy tree ladies.\²'''Legolas:''' Sexy? I thought they had leaves for hair. And bark skin.\²'''Aragorn:''' Yeah, but they're all chicks. Naked chicks. Leafy, naked tree chicks.\²'''Gimli:''' Ye need help, lad. Ye really do.²* ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' has this title for a reason. The comic centers on a [[AllGhoulsSchool monster highschool]], and so far, with the exception of a pair of lizard boys, they are all cute monster girls (and boys). And if the cast isn't enough, there are more of them in flashbacks -- [[ hilariously cute snake-girls]] and so on.²* Grace Sciuridae/Shade Tail in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetically engineered]] [[ShapeShifter shapeshifting]] assassin created to fight the BigBad Damien. However, she proves to be a pacifist by nature [[UnstoppableRage except under the worst provocation]]. (Her brothers are less human-looking in their hybrid forms, though they can appear human, and quite good-looking, when they choose.) Her male EvilCounterpart from another dimension is much scarier.²* ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' temporarily turned several female characters into these in order to [[ celebrate Page 666]].²* Ambrosia Verdandi from ''Webcomic/FetchQuestSagaOfTheTwelveArtifacts''. She's also a doctor wannabe!²* Nitrine of ''Webcomic/FlakyPastry'' is a small, cute human-looking young woman with green hair and lips. She is also a goblin and has had some rather classical male goblins hanging around.²* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' got a few:²** [[ Traveling]] jager-kin [[ Jenka]], who gets a lot cuter once she's dressed for her job as the [[ head of the Mechanicsburg Diplomatic Corps.]]²** [[ Mamma Gkika]]; "cute" and "girl" definitely aren't the words for her, but she fits all the same.²** The girls working at Mamma Gkika's [[ exploit this trope to the full.]] Although only two female jagers have been seen in-comic, the girls don fangs, claws and pointed ears to appear like extremely humanoid jagers. Apparently they offer ''"dinner and a show"'' (for both the tourists and for the real jagers hiding out in the basement) making the bar a notorious tourist trap, but a later visit to Mamma Gkika's shows that the jager-frau offer a [[ little more than that]] at certain times of day.²** Nobody's really sure what the Geisterdamen are, other than creepy, but they're also [[ kinda hot.]]²** [[ Ferretina the Evil Weasel Queen]] from the [[{{Omake}} side-story]] "Revenge of the Weasel Queen".²** Maxim and Oggie fall under the heading of Cute Monster ''Boys''.²* ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' has Saves-a-Fox (admittedly she wears a ''wig'', but still...) and [[SnakePeople yuan-ti]] girl Kin. Female Goblins are drawn sexier than their male counterparts in several panels, especially when the male leads are fantasizing.²* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':²** The [[AllTrollsAreDifferent trolls]] fame have grey skin, orange, sunken eyes, fangs of varying length and horns of varying shape. Apart from that, they don't really look that monstrous. [[ Nepeta]], for example, is adorable, [[BadassAdorable even if she does kill wild animals for food with her bare hands and paint the walls of her cave with their blood]]. The male trolls are all mostly Cute Monster Guys, too. Except maybe Equius.²** Jade Harley was spliced with a godlike dog, but the doggy features are cosmetic accessories to her big-eyed Moe face, and her plain long hair became a wavy mane.²* One of the primary facets in the [[MadScientist mad science]] comedy ''Webcomic/TheHorrifyingExperimentsOfDrPleasant''. But as the "Schneidecker-Loli principle" clearly states, young females are the easiest to revive.²* Snapdragon Fahrenheit, along with a number of other students (including a gorgon, a succubus and a Jotun) at the Doc Mars Academy from ''Webcomic/HowToRaiseYourTeenageDragon''.²* Molly in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' is an extremely cute pink furry monster. Princess Voluptua still manages to be pretty attractive even in her insect form, as well.²* Hala River from ''[[ Irregular Elis]]'' is an alien.²* ''Webcomic/KeychainOfCreation'' has both Marena (Lunar TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}, 'foxy', and arguably the MsFanservice of the strip) and Secret (''Abyssal'' Exalted, but undeniably cute). And if a GeniusDitz robotic mad scientist who [[spoiler:can turn into a giant robot cat]] is more your thing, there's always Elegant Nova of Progression.²* Benn'Joon of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''. What ''exactly'' Benny's race is is unclear to the point that Richard describes her as "miscellaneous," although she has been on a couple occasions been identified as a troll (whose males, for the record, are green-skinned and generally ugly) and has been regularly called a half-breed. [[spoiler:It is later heavily implied that her mother is the quite attractive Elven pirate Captain Tah'Vraay, so Benny appears to be at least part Elf. The markings around her eyes and three-digit hands similar to the Minotaurs hints that she may very well be [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction Krunch's]] biological daughter.]]²* The unnamed gorgon protagonist in ''Webcomic/ModestMedusa'' seems to be [[GorgeousGorgon a cute and fairly harmless child]], without the ability to turn people to stone or the aggression normally associated with the medusa/gorgon type of monster. Instead she's easily distracted and seems to enjoy video games and junk food.²* All the female cast (and males) from ''Webcomic/{{Monsterful}}''. Cute monster [[ girl]] [[ extras]] (both young and mature) are everywhere, and cute monster girl [[ celebrity]] parodies!²* The webcomic [[ "Monster Girls on Tour."]] has a wide cast of this creatures, with a Salamander as the main one.²* ''Nast the Enchanter'' is an interactive webcomic centering around an enchanter framed for stealing the princess' knickers. He tricks a minotaur woman named ''Valley'' into breaking him out of jail and they form an adventuring party together. They have since met a [[MonsterLord King Slime]] who chose to shape itself into a sexy [[SheIsTheKing woman.]]²* ''Webcomic/NerfNow'' has [[ Cute Zerg Girls]]. As in, the Zerg from ''VideoGame/StarCraft''.²* ''Webcomic/TheNoordegraafFiles'' has Akila, who looks sort of like a cute swamp creature with spiky blue hair. And breasts. However, calling her anything alluding to the fact that she looks like a fish-person is bound to get her very angry. She also grows tentacles on occasion. Sirens (the bird kind) and other monster -- humans are also in the comic's universe, but haven't appeared. ²* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' [[ parodies]] the tendency for BizarreSexualDimorphism in fantasy to produce [[MsFanservice attractive ladies]]. The other races are rather confused that human males look like unattractive females of other races.²-->''"Why do the females look the same in all species? Nobody knows!"''²* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':²** Therkla, a half-orc ninja. While the males of the orcs we see aren't exactly any more ugly, mishappen, or inhuman than the females, this could be a limitation of the art style.²** Subverted and parodied in with a female Lizardfolk prostitute. At first she appears to look much more human than a typical member of her species, with blonde hair and NonMammalMammaries. But it turns out these are a wig and implants, which she got to attract more business. Without them she'd look just like a standard Lizardfolk. (And the other lizardfolk hooker is disgusted by her.)²* ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' is about {{Eldritch Abomination}}s forming an UnwantedHarem around the protagonist, David. All of them take the form of beautiful women or Cute Monster Girls. Notably, the [[ shoggoth]] manages to look cute even when in its favoured form of a girl with [[ snake-ish mouths for arms]]!²* ''Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad'':²** The Deer Woman (based on Native American mythos) at the begining was kinda cute if you don't notice that her long skirt concealed deer legs. To bad she had already murdered 7 men before being made a [[OffWithHerHead foot shorter]].²** Once Katie is changed, she is a cute litte [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] after her bite.²* Soraya from ''Webcomic/{{Poharex}}'' combines this with LizardFolk.²* Most of the [[LizardFolk coatlaltec]] girls from ''Webcomic/RestauranteMacoatl'' fit this trope, the only trace of them being reptiles are their tails and claws.²* [[DiscussedTrope Mentioned occasionally]] in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary''.²** [[ "You 'member dem comics where da alien girls were all pretty an' stuff?" "Comic book artists don' get out much, I don' think."]]²** [[ "Are there aliens in the company? Are any of 'em... you know... hot?"]]²* All of the main characters in ''Webcomic/SchoolBites'' are cute vampire girls, some going into the catgirl variety.²* The title character of ''Webcomic/{{Selkie}}'' has gray skin, flippers, and fangs.²* In ''Webcomic/{{Shadowgirls}}'', [[spoiler:Christmas Snow]]'s mother is a female [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Deep One]], but not ''nearly'' as grotesque as one of the originals. This lends a bit of plausibility to the strip showing that she and her human partner conceived [[spoiler:her]] out of mutual love and attraction.²* ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' has Baby Blue and Fuchsia. They're Devil Girls (presumably succubi), so there's [[HornyDevils some]] [[EvilIsSexy justification]] for this. Also, [[{{Satan}} their boss]] is depicted as pretty handsome.²* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'':²** Parodied in the Years of Yarncraft storyline, especially in [[ this strip]].²** Aylee adopts her forms to defend against specific dangers (such as developing mind-shielding with a telepathic foe around). The current form was taken because she feared what humans would do unless she could fit in among them better. In other words, she (subconsciously) made herself into a Cute Monster Girl to gain acceptance.²* ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' gives us Minerva, a {{Stripperiffic}} [[{{Animorphism}} anthropomorphic]] Cerberus whose three heads offer something for [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom everyone into anthros]], whether they like their girls sweet, spicy, or {{tsundere}}. There's also [[CatGirl Katt o'Nine Tails]] (though she's much more slender than curvy, and her usual outfit is about as far from stripperiffic as you can get) and [[EvilCounterpart Evil Spinnerette]], who started out human but used a ritual to turn herself into a [[SpiderPeople drider]].²* The Creo in ''Webcomic/{{Terinu}}'' start out as petite and cute when they're young, but upon reaching adulthood they gain the same bulky musculature as a male. Ferin does and bucks, on the other hand, retain disturbingly small and cute their entire lives, even as they sported spiky horns and tails.²* Anak Zahard from ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' is a cute specimen from the LizardFolk.²* ''Webcomic/WhatsShakin'' has a few, most notably an undead lady Ell and an orc girl Pai.²* ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' has a plethora of these, notably [[HornyDevils Artemis]] and [[SpiderPeople Entegra]]. The timeskip later introduces Damien and Inu, a pair of [[InvertedTrope Cute Monster Boys]].²* Xan from ''Webcomic/WintersInLavelle'' is a male example of this. Half-deer, part of a species infamous for hating humans and being rather violent, but '''damn''', if he isn't adorable. And despite his usually [[{{Tsundere}} less than kind demeanour]], his occasional sweet moments (almost always with [[HeterosexualLifePartners Rio]]) only serve to emphasise that.²* ''Webcomic/TheWotch'' has Ti'el, a cute green-haired alien with tentacle hands, and Myrrh, Lord Sykos' half-liquid maid. Due to the ShapeShifting that goes on, many characters have been a Cute Monster Girl at least once or twice.²* Aracia Paukoobraznyy from ''Webcomic/ZooAcademy'' is a spider Bifera (part human part animal) and she's very cute despite other characters thinking she's a little scary.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Original]]²* The Lampyrians from ''Literature/BeyondTheImpossible''. Blue skin, no nose and large bat-like wings. They are exclusively female, live only for two years and are universally considered [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe incredibly attractive]].²* ''Felarya'' is based on this trope. Almost all major characters are Cute Monster Girls -- sweet, innocent, [[IAmAHumanitarian and with an appetite for gulping down humans whole and alive]]. Felaryan Cute Monster Girls range from [[SnakePeople nagas]] (giant snake-human hybrids) to [[SpiderPeople driders]] (giant spider-human hybrids), [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]], slug girls, and adorable carnivorous fairies. Who, naturally, are often [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever really, really big]] and [[EverythingTryingToKillYou all trying to eat you]]. Giant ''males'' are presumed to exist, but are rarely seen. Some species are {{One Gender Race}}s.²* ''WebOriginal/{{Mortasheen}}'' has [[ Mothstrous]], a human-moth hybrid who looks quite cute compared to the other human-insect hybrids called Arthropoids, who are grotesque and Brundlefly-ish in look. Given that Mortasheen's standards of beauty are... [[NightmareFetishist different]], it's not surprising to learn they consider Mothstrous one of the most hideous and grotesque of all Arthropoids. For comparison's sake, ''[[ this]]'' is one of the Arthropoids they consider "beautiful".²* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'': While there's no images of her on the website, [[ SCP-811]] gives off the feel of this trope due to her simplistic third-person manner of speech and her child-like cheerfulness when she learns new things. It probably also helps that she [[spoiler:[[WasOnceAMan used to be a human being]]]].²* [[ Teto Kasane]] the [=UTAUloid=] is a chimera with the appearance of a human girl with bat wings, and is often depicted with CuteLittleFangs depending on the artist. Depictions showing her wings are exceedingly rare, making this somewhat of an InformedAttribute.²* The waiter-zombie users play as in the iTunes app ''Zombies à La Mode'' is a cross between a rare cute monster ''guy'' and UglyCute.²* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Because of the various ways the Exemplar trait can manifest, and the various BodyHorror side effects of mutant powers, there are several inhuman-looking students on campus, some of whom are still reasonably attractive nonetheless. Notable instances include {{Kaiju}}, [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Demona]], [[SnakePerson Diamondback]], and [[HornyDevil Adore]]. One could argue that the Drow Swarm would count as well, though calling them 'monsters' in front of Jobe Wilkins[[note]]the MadScientist responsible for turning [[GenderBender herself]] and the rest into Drow[[/note]] would probably lead to you [[BalefulPolymorph getting turned into]] a {{Drider}} or worse.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Videos]]²* ''WebVideo/DrCrafty'' has Nurse Worse, the lab assistant of the titular doctor. Her design evokes FrankensteinsMonster with stitched green skin and metal bolts on her head and arms, but she's also an {{Adorkable}} BigBeautifulWoman who provides helpful commentary on the process for Dr. Crafty's creations.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Western Animation]]²* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has the monstrous forms of Sunset Shimmer, Twilight Sparkle, Gloriosa Daisy, and Juniper Montage from the ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' series, with Juniper's form being HollywoodHomely at absolute rock-bottom worst.²* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has [[PrettyPrincessPowerhouse Princess Bubblegum]] (a candy person [[MeaningfulName made of gum]]), [[CuteAndPsycho Flame Princess]] ([[MeaningfulName a fire elemental]]), and [[VampireMonarch Marceline]] (a shapeshifting vampirised half-demon HalfHumanHybrid). Flame Princess and Princess Bubblegum are the most extreme examples, as the other (mostly male) fire elementals and Candy People look much less humanoid than they do. However, other female characters and creatures are varying flavours of weird; Lumpy Space Princess, for example, is basically a sapient cloud. In the GenderFlip episodes Ice Queen is very much less repulsive than the Ice King, but most likely this is due to her being [[spoiler:Ice King's [[SelfInsertFic self insert]].]] Due to the fact that the cast has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. there are a few more. However, they're still outnumbered by the weird ones. ²* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', Wasp becomes one when she's mutated by Gamma Radiation.²* Attea from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse''. In her first appearance back in ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'' she was an adorable looking (if bratty and insane) frog girl. Then she popped back up in Omniverse looking like [[ this.]]²* Teryx on ''WesternAnimation/{{Dinosaucers}}'' is an evolved ''Archaeopteryx'' and beautiful in her own way, so much that several members of her species (even the BigBad of the show) are attracted to her. In one episode it is revealed that she was an actress in a soap opera on her home planet before joining the hero team, and had ''hordes'' of admirers.²* Rayla from ''WesternAnimation/TheDragonPrince'' qualifies for it. She is an elf and she has white hair and horns in addition to her pointed ears. Rayla also has a human skin colour, which most elves do not have. All elf girls should play this trope, but so far Rayla is the only one shown.²* ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers'':²** It seems that while male Martians are short and cartoony the females, particularly Queen Tyr'ahnee are, well, [[ this]]. Then again, the male Martian General Z9 is tall and well-built, so it's possible that Marvin is just a midget among his people.²** One episode had the hero crash-land onto a planet made up of attractive bug-like women... until the sun goes down.²* Leela from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', a beautiful one-eyed woman descended from a race inflicted with all kinds of BodyHorror, is a particularly justified example: [[spoiler:her parents and people are formerly human, subterranean {{mutants}} and the fact that she happened to be born looking almost human is why they were able to pass her off as a HumanAlien and send her to the surface world for a better life than they could give her.]] Averted with plenty of underground female mutants though. Such deformities include slimy green skin, vertical mouths, extra arms and tentacles.²* All of the female ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' shown in the original TV series are sexy winged humanoids, except for Una, who resembles an anthropomorphic unicorn and is thus still "cute", while male gargoyles have many other types. However, the comic continuation eventually introduced Constance (Coco), a heavy-set female who resembles a wild sow, and Brooklyn's mate at the end of his Timedance, Katana, has a face that includes a beautiful beak. In "The Mirror", when Puck turned Elisa into a gargoyle, Elisa qualified for this -- though [[InterspeciesRomance Goliath considered her more beautiful as a human]].²* ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex'' has Breach, a pale, four-armed (with the top set of arms being abnormally huge) schoolgirl. A later episode introduced Cricket, a girl who's still pretty cute despite being green and having spines on her arms. [[spoiler:Later episodes reduce the amount of spines, make her figure fuller, and give her a cuter face.]]²* ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'' is about a [[AllGhoulsSchool high school of monsters]], so some of the monsters are cute teenage girls including Durze (a Gorgon), Blanche (a Zombie) and Cleo (a Mummy). ²* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresofBillyandMandy'' has two male examples:²** [[HumanoidAbomination Nergal Jr.]] has a ''huge'' number of [[{{Fangirl}} fangirls]] because, while monstrous (and sometimes a {{Yandere}}), he is {{Adorkable}}.²** A zig-zagged example would be [[BlackandNerdy Ir]][[NonActionGuy win]]; he starts of an ordinary, harmless nerd. He later turns out to be a [[HybridMonster vampire-mummy]]. Either way, he's in the same {{Adorkable}} boat as Junior.²* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}'' is guilty of this one. Gumby has roughly the same slab-shaped body as his father, but his mother has a round head with blonde hair on a body that has breasts. [[PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales And she wears clothes]]. She's not cute by the standards of most entries on this page, but she's far more human-shaped than the rest of her family.²* Saffi from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'', with one eye, orange skin, and HartmanHips, and Heloise may count, given her AmbiguouslyHuman status. A few background characters qualify as well.²* Plenty of the girls from ''WesternAnimation/LloydInSpace''. AlphaBitch Brittany has blue skin and six arms but is still pretty cute. {{Dandere}} Violet simply has yellow skin and pink hair. Cindy may have two heads but one of them is very pretty and her body is also quite nice. Lloyd's mother Nora pretty much qualifies for GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe. And one episode has Eddie (the Token Human) falling for a girl who is half-Zebra at the end. Averted with other girls such as Genevieve, Megan, Grace, Charmaine and Mrs Bolts (who is a '''robot''') who have much more alien appearances.²* ''WesternAnimation/MartinMystery'' has Diana becoming a half-lizard girl in the second part of the third season finale. The eponymous character even jokingly compliments that she's only a mini-mutant because her eyes changed and she has a tail.²%%* Iris from ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom''.²* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'':²** The group get sucked into Harvey's comic book world and Sabrina becomes Calamari Queen, who is half girl, half squid and pretty darn cute. She also appears to have been aged a few years judging by her chest area.²** Grimadonna the vampire superstar from the Netherworld. A sexy humanoid woman just with purple hair, pointy ears, blue skin and fangs.²* ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'':²** [[spoiler:Lena Dupree]] from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'' is an... interesting variation. She's certainly [[{{Moe}} cute]], and she's certainly a monster, but her monster form itself? NOT. CUTE. They transform twice. The first form is just their normal human forms only with cat ears, teeth, eyes, claws and some fur. Then they transform into horrific monsters. The female zombies from the film are decidedly not cute as well.²** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheAlienInvaders'' has [[spoiler:the cute native girl Shaggy had the hots for''(!)'' -and who seemed to share his feelings'''''(!!)'''''-]] who was a real (benevolent) alien; she looked somewhat like a metallic-skinned [[TheGreys Grey alien]], but with an attractive human bodyshape and expressive facial features.²** The girls from ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool''. They're all the daughters of famous monsters, Sibella for example is Dracula's daughter.²* In ''WesternAnimation/ScreamStreet'' Cleo the mummy fits this trope, as do "Cute Monster Boys" Resus the vampire (with his CuteLittleFangs) and Luke the werewolf (though not so much when he's in his full wolf form!)²* ''WesternAnimation/DieSendungMitDerMaus'' has a monster kid writing his mommy a Mother's Day poem. Mommy surely isn't sexually-attractive-cute (still, you can see her teats! Gasp!) but you can safely say she is heartwarming-grotesque-cute. ²* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'':²** Star looks like a fourteen year old girl with heart tattoos on her cheeks. She transformed temporarily into a monsterous butterfly-like form during mewberty, yet still looked adorable despite being terrifying.²** Hekapoo. She looks like a pale young girl with horns and maybe fur.²** Tom Lucitor is a male example, an attractive boy with horns, sharp teeth, three eyes and a tail (And Star who is his girlfriend had no idea of that last detail)²** [[spoiler: Meteora Butterfly transforms into a beautiful semi-monster girl of 16 years in the episode Gone Baby Gone.]]²* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' depicts Mr Mxyzptlk as a short, bald, almost baby-like figure with a distinct slouch whereas his female "friend" (as he spends most of his time ignoring her, it's hard to say what their relationship is exactly), Ms Gsptlsnz is a normal-sized, or even tall, very curvy redhead with a penchant for 1950s-style clothes. Given that the residents of the 5th dimension can choose whatever appearance they want, this is almost certainly deliberate.²* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':²** Kitten in the episode "Date with Destiny" looks like a cute, normal human girl. Her father, Killer Moth, appears to be some kind of moth man and her boyfriend, Fang, is a guy with a GiantSpider for a head (not a spider head, a spider). It turns out that Killer Moth is actually a regular guy in a costume, but despite the metallic voice and non-moving mouth you might not realize that just by watching the episode.²** Among the main characters there's DarkMagicalGirl Raven, the daughter of an EldritchAbomination PhysicalGod and a human (well, Azarathian anyway) woman. Most of the time, she looks like a cute human girl, save for her pale skin and purple eyes and hair (and in their {{animesque}} world, it's hard to say [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair just how unusual even some of those traits are]]). The [[YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry angrier she gets]], though, the more her father's monstrous traits start showing: when she has four glowing red eyes, an elongated body, and is spewing Lovecraftian amounts of darkness tendrils from her cloak, it's time to start running. Fast!²--->'''Dr. Light:''' It was so... so... dark... Make it stop... Make it stop...²** Beast Boy covers Cute Monster Boy, with his green skin, pointed ears, and CuteLittleFangs.²** In spite of Starfire's obvious beauty, Ms. Alien Eye-Candy is still a [[SuperStrength superstrong]] alien monster with orange skin who [[FrickinLaserBeams shoots lasers]]. A really beautiful alien monster, but alien monster nonetheless. This is actually brought up whenever she decides to eat (her race eat giant insects and squids and have teeth filed down to points) or hug someone (accompanied by breaking-bone sounds).²* Anytime one of the main characters of ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' is mutated into a half-human, this is the guaranteed outcome. Even as a half-''cockroach'' Alex still manages to be quite cute.²[[/folder]]²----


How well does it match the trope?
