By the wa<y, why is summoning only related to some dark, deadly figures ?

I mean that summoning Skeletons, Demons, Lichs, whatever is quite normal in an RPG. Everything nice dark and gritty.

Why aren't some lighter creatures to be summoned ? Fairies, for example ?

Are RPG players so that they just can'tcope with "cute-looking" creatures, especiually whwn they are summoned ?

And why do the big bad bosses often so poverly cool and the "Good guys" so boring ?

Time to recall some clichés, I'd say ...
