im really good at the game and seldom kill kerbals, though i did do a play through with the goal of killing as many of them as possible. i guess they are kind of cute. i never really gave it much thought though.

Considering their appearance, behaviour and their stupidity (or suicidal overconfidence) tendencies, then yeah, I consider them cute, especially their expression of joy (or terror) when their aircraft are barrel rolling towards the cliffside at 1200 km/h with one wing missing (I still try to not them get killed though. Planes are easy to replace, skilled personnel are not)

Depends on their internals.

They shouldn't. We are mass killing them.

This. I try not to get emotionally attached to them.

Honestly, even assigning them a name is too much for me...

I find that getting emotionally attached to Kerbals makes me have more interesting gameplay experiences. I try my darnedest to leave no Kerbal behind, and if one pops, the circumstances of their death will have a lasting impact on my vessel design. Plus, it’s fun to design abort systems for stuff that isn’t just a simple capsule!

as for whether they’re cute, they’ve got a simple silhouette, big heads and eyes,  and seem to have a childlike enthusiasm about them, so I’d say they are.

I hardly ever lose any, even with life support mods.

Honestly, for me the most likely cause of a kerbal death is a time warp error.

This devalues the suit color  differentiation :(
