* Chichiri from ''FushigiYuugi'' has one, which also gives him the ability to get out of bad situations via magic. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Miaka tries this, and fails]].

expanding: this headgear denoted a soldier in Japan.
Added DiffLines:
In feudal Japan, the ''ashigaru'', the footsoldier class who supported the samurai, wore a reinforced and militarised form of this hat, with a hanging kepi-cloth to protect the neck from sun and rain, as the trademark of their military caste.

* Features in Koei's ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' and ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' games. In the former, it's unusually distinctive due to it being worn only by Nanman Armor Troop unit. In the latter, common spear infantry wear these hats. * The Empire's Tankbusters in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'' wear large, high-tech electronic versions of these hats. They're more than just decorative--they fire a cylindrical wall of lasers straight down, which allow Tankbusters to instantly burrow into the ground to hide from enemies.

* Most films depicting the VietCong will have some of them wearing these hats. This is TruthInTelevision: many VietCong disguised themselves as farmers before ambushing the Americans.

Asia is a big place, including Iran, India, Russia, etc. Saying "All asian countries" in this context is highly inaccurate and a bit racist.
The conical Asian hat (also known as a sedge hat, rice hat, coolie hat or paddy hat) is a simple style of conical hat originating in East and Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Japan and Korea - all Asian countries have their own variation on it, and their own name for it[[note]]Caping, Nn l, Dǒul, Sugegasa, and Satgat, respectively[[/note]] . This style of hat is used primarily as protection from the sun and rain, and is usually kept on the head by a cloth (often silk) chin strap; an internal band of the same material keeps the hat itself from resting on the wearer's head. While anybody can wear the hats, in China, they are primarily worn by women who work on farms or in fields for hours on end.[[note]]It helps preserve the white in RavenHairIvorySkin.[[/note]] And a variation of the conical straw hat which is painted in bright flourescent yellow can be seen by street cleaners in major Chinese cities. As late as 1950, and the fall of Hainan, this hat had ''military applications'' as it was pretty much the only standard-issue garment the Guomindang could afford to waterproof. The Communists on the other hand used Soviet-style waxed greatcoats and eschewed the 'backward' and 'feudal' image the hat conjured up (though none of their men actually got any until ''after'' [[NoMoreEmperors they'd won the war and crushed all the labour-unions]]).

* ''StreetFighterIV'': Two of the Japanese fighters, [[HeirToTheDojo Makoto]] and [[OldMaster Gouken]], both have alternate outfits with these included. Makoto's is justified, as she spends up lot of time outside fixing up her dad's dojo and the outfit with the hat is clearly made for that kind of work. Gouken, not so much considering he was trapped in a coma for years.
