* M.Bison (played by Raul Julia) wears one in ''Film/StreetFighter''. To further stress the PuttingOnTheReich aspect, the metal Shadaloo symbol on the front looks rather eerily like a mix between the Nazi "Reichsadler" and the SS "Totenkopf" motif.

* Seems to be part of the Star Fleet dress uniform in StarTrekIntoDarkness. Particularly visible in the gathering at the end of the film.

A subtrope of both NiceHat and BlingOfWar. A large, high [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peaked_cap peaked cap]] similar to those worn by BananaRepublic [[GloriousLeader dictators]]. The trope namer is ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', with [[ThePoliticalOfficer Commissars]] wearing such caps[[note]] itself a nod to the similarly totalitarian [[GloriousMotherRussia Soviet Union]], in which pretty much everyone, even ''primary school children'', was issued a peaked cap at some point, especially the political commissars [[/note]]. This headgear surely makes the wearer look badass in an authoritarian sense of the word. Sometimes decorated with elaborate silver or gold designs on the visor and/or the front of the crown, nicknamed "scrambled eggs" by military folks; the stereotypical BananaRepublic leader's cap has so much of these that you can barely see the colour of the actual cap underneath.

** On the other hand, for much of the Cold War, large-crowned American caps were bigger than their Soviet counterparts.

** On the other hand, for much of during the Cold War, large-crowned American the US Armed Forces had larger-crowned caps were bigger than their Soviet counterparts.counterparts, for reasons similar to above: American caps wear a large insignia on the ''crown'', almost always some variation of the eagle of American heraldry, whereas Soviet caps almost always had a small, less obtrusive Soviet insignia the ''band'' (American caps also typically have thinner bands). This almost certainly was a large inspiration on the Russian Federation's placement of their ''own'' eagle on the crown of their new caps, and when the Russian military moved away from the American style, their caps shrunk accordingly.
