23 Cute Movie Characters That Could Kick Your Ass
It’s always the quiet ones…

submit to reddit

The Croods is the latest in a long line of movies to introduce a character that initially seems as cute as a button – aw, there’s a nice tusked white-tiger parrot thingy! – but which is actually capable of squashing you in seconds flat. Sometimes they’re magical creatures, sometimes they're innocent-looking human beings, but the one thing that connects them all is their ability to comfortably make you cry like a baby through either adorability and out-and-out aggression. Here are 23 of them, and if you have any others you’d like to suggest, feel free to let us know in the comment box below.

P.S. Number 23 should only be read by people who have seen Looper...

23 Cute Movie Characters That Could Kick Your Ass | Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear
Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear

From: Toy Story 3 (2010)

Looks like: A fluffy pink teddy bear who smells of strawberries and just wants to be hugged.

Actually is: A bitter and malevolent master-manipulator who reigns over Sunnyside Daycare Center like it's Shawshank State Prison. Watch out for his more-weapon-than-walking-aid wooden cane, and fear his gullible henchmen/henchbabies, because they won't hesitate for a second before tossing you into an incinerator – even if it does make fully-grown men-children in the audience cry.
