* 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.
