That could account for it too, though you could have an ability to boost appearance outright.

You want to make that gender-neutral appearance, but other than that yeah, that covers it. Minus the fur in the case of the baby hippo.

Some of them might have Social Regard (especially human babies) and some kind of Reputation. I doubt, however, whether non-liking (not disliking but just neutral reaction) something is a feature of a person or the part of Reputation. Anyway, it just depends on a build: whether it includes limited traits or just ineffective against Callous, Killjoy, Indomitable or Unfazeable persons and the rest.

Appearance is sex-neutral automatically up to Attractive. You have to be Handsome/Beautiful or above before male/female matters.

sorry for this - I'm not answering the OP.
Bunnies are Not cute. They are, at best, evil minions of B'Harné. They are vicious, stinking pests. The only scar I have, from an animal, is from a "bunny". I'll admit, though, they do look more cute when viewed through a rifle scope.

Or perhaps I just have leprophobia... Not the kind of phobia where you run screaming in fear - the kind where you resist the urge to run to find the nearest weapon whilst screaming in incoherent rage (like for wasps, Mickey Mouse and clowns).

RE: OP. Puss-in-Boots Cute Attack is definitely a Power; some kind of Mind Control that manifests as cuteness. But it also requires a skill to back it up - if it was a man vs woman scene it'd be sex appeal but my brain won't parse the Cute Animal vs Human thing. The experts on this Forum will know which skill to use.

Cuteness isn't necessarily based entirely on appearance. I have two very dear friends who are both generally considered attractive, but those who have interacted with them consider them both absolutely adorable primarily because of how they behave.

I have a terrible phobia about rabbits. Some of images in this thread are disturbing. :(

Wouldn't you still need Universal to make it species neutral?

If I am either the knowledge has been obscured from me, leaving only a terrible fear of rabbits.

In Babylon 5 Zack Allen to G'kar Daffy Duck the Egyptian god of Frustration.

Daffy Duck vs Bugs Bunny...

But in all serionus have grown up in New Zealand I can contemplate understand understand negive perception of Rabbits.

But like understanding Cats are walking ecological disaster zones does not stop me finding bunnies and kitties cute.
