Despite what Grobi says below, I strongly disagree that this is a "perfect" trope title - in fact, I think this article is trying to do three different things and gets muddled as a result. We're combining "cute monster girl", "sexy monster girl", and "monstrous dimorphism", when they're three separate (although related) tropes. See Cute Witch, Hot Witch, and Witch Species for an example of a similar (and, in my opinion, correctly-implemented) split.
I think "Sexy Monster Girl" may already be covered by the page Beastess. Or partly covered. Discuss?
Then again, couldn't this trope apply to cases where both the male and female forms of a monster species is conventionally attractive by human standards? I'm not a huge fan of name-changes for tropes, and there's plenty of applications for "cute" that spill a bit into fanservice anyway, but this trope should apply to cute/attractive 'monster' types. If they're sexy, I think it goes under Beastess. If the females are objectively more conventionally attractive by human standards compared to males, then it's Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism. We've already got three tropes, it seems like someone is taking the overlap with related tropes a bit too far.
Although the female Zentraedi (or, more properly, Meltrandi in Macross) are generally all pretty, this is certainly averted in Macross 7. Veffidas is a lot of things, but generically pretty isn't one of them.
What does everyone think of "Pretty Weird" as a redirect?
Nice pun, but Cute Monster Girl is one of the few "perfect" Trope-titles: Short, easy to remember, exactly what it says on the tin. Redirect is unnecessary.
what is the pic from?
Originally the My Species Doth Protest Too Much page. Beyond that I do not know.
I've seen that one before, but I'd really have to search around to find it.
if memory serves correctly, it was a battler image made for RPG Maker VX.
