This article contains spoilers. Linking to a subsection is not recommended as this will skip over this warning.

There are numerous anomalous formations on the surfaces of bodies in the Kerbol System. Some remain undiscovered as of today.

If you've stumbled here accidentally and don't want to spoil the thrill of exploration and discovery for yourself,
this excessively large text block will do its best to keep you from glancing below before you remember where the "back" button in your browser is, or a keyboard combination like Alt+ if you're fancy.

Seriously, these contain quite detailed descriptions of the easter eggs.
There are even pictures of some of them.
There are even coordinates for them.
So if you want to see them first when you find them yourself, go back now!

I really mean it, don't tell me you weren't warned.
If you aren't interested in spoilers there are other things you could do.

Maybe you'd like to go to the Main Page instead of continuing to read this well-intended textual clutter.
Maybe you just like reading too much. Maybe you should be playing KSP instead.
Maybe you should go buy it if you haven't already.
Maybe you should buy it for someone else who loves science, indie games or Mexican innovation.

I don't know;

I'm just a rapidly waning text block.



  • None known


  • There is a large, steep vertical "tunnel" that could be considered an easter egg, and anomalous forces are present around the rim of the tunnel, which is at Moho's north pole. Also known as the Mohole.


  • None known


  • 0 degrees, 0 degrees, there is a perfect square pyramid.




Broken terrain on the south pole of minimus.


The Giant Kerbal Face of Duna


  • Magic Boulder - There is a monolith on the boulder. Boulder contains strange clipping boundaries that can result in ships exploding seemingly spontaneously. It also seems to glow green as if it is radioactive. It is missing since 0.18, but it used to orbit at an altitude of 15km with an inclination of 80 degrees.
  • A pyramid at the north pole similar to the one formerly on Kerbin which flipped kerbals.
  • A large dark patch near the equator (13° 34′ 44″ S 26° 45′ 45″ E). The patch is only present when in 'space near' Ike; it is invisible on all map views. Present since at least 0.25.


  • None known


  • None known


  • None known


Formation on Vall




  • None known


  • None known.


  • While not easter eggs per se, the exact geographical poles of most bodies have highly unusual topography, usually making them inaccessible.


An average of the skin color in Kerbal arm textures compared to the rumored colors
  • The color of the Kerbals' skin is close to is #BADA55 (   ) in hexadecimal but does not match it exactly. The hexadecimal RGB value spells like “badass” in leetspeek. Some say #84D455 (   ) is the color of a Kerbal which is even further away than #BADA55. This connection is rumored, because Kerbals can have a BadS flag, which is usually interpreted as badass.


  • Some of the cockpits have post-it notes and other humorous writings inside them. The writing is somewhat blurry on normal settings and hard to read, but still legible. For transcripts of the notes, see the respective part pages.


Loading Screen

Main Menu

  • One of the two main menu images is that of a Kerbal standing on the Mun's surface, with Kerbin in the background. There is a 1 in 40 chance that a sand castle made of Mun dust can be seen at his feet.
  • There is another main menu image with multiple kerbals, apparently fixing the crashed lander. Note that this is not in the stock game and is in fact added by the toolbar mod.


The Kerbal XX orbiting Duna
  • During the Space Station One scenario, by zooming out far enough to show the planetary map, a ship by the name of 'Kerbal XX' can be seen orbiting around Duna in a near-equatorial orbit (as of 0.23)
