But both are cute, what are you on about?

Titou ,

Shark is seen as an evil human-eater while in fact there's plenty of animals who kills more humans than him including dolphins(also most shark attacks were in fact accidents).

what about a cute little creature being kind? not enough of that in this word sadly

nifty OP ,
@nifty@lemmy.world avatar

I would treasure it forever

How about the both of them being friends and going on journeys together where they clash worldviews and compromise together

As an aspiring monsterfucker, I choose option B.

The second isn't used as a trope nearly as much as the first, and I do like rooting for an underdog.

Indeed, the first is something of a cliche at this point.

Both are. At least in manga and anime.

Yeah, in fact I rarely ever see the second one playing out...

Kindness rocks, in fiction and reality.

Asidonhopo ,

Kindness and evil aren't mutually exclusive. Cute and scary arent mutually exclusive either.

They're both good, but I prefer the second one, because it's nice to have the ones who are usually the villains be presented in a positive light. I might be a bit biased here.

Actions matter.. looks less so.

If a big scary creature is kind, it is not scary

what about Creepy Good?

I mean, if that thing in the example pic was consistently kind and helpful to me, I'd soon find it more ugly than creepy. Without the hair, I might not even think it's ugly

In the same way, if a lion decided I was their beloved human and consistently showered me with affection and appropriate gentleness, I'd quickly lose my fear of it

nonfuinoncuro ,

dammit why did you link me to TV tropes...

shani66 ,

It really is like a DDOS attack for a human mind

nonfuinoncuro ,

eventually fell asleep on the TV tropes article...
