Some hats serve more of a purpose than just [[NiceHat looking nice]]. Some even go beyond the mundane purpose of protecting the wearer's head. These Hats of Power grant some [[StockSuperpowers superpower]] or other special ability to whatever lucky chump happens to put them on.

* On ''Series/TodaysSpecial'', Jeff the mannequin was brought to life by a magical hat, but it only worked on the grounds of the department store where he lived.



* ''SuperMario64''[='=]s hats all fall under this, they're all power ups which give Mario different abilities like being made of metal, going through enemies and obstacles while invisible and flight, and you can mix and match them all. Heck, Mario's normal hat too, he takes double damage without it somehow.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'', the family fights over a TinfoilHat that gives the wearer incredibly good luck. Anais takes it to the dump to destroy it, leading to a ''LordOfTheRings'' parody with Gumball as Gollum.

* In ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'', Wander's trademark baggy green hat is a BagOfHolding that can conjure up whatever someone needs (even if it's not necessarily what they ''want''). "The Bad Hatter" reveals [[spoiler: Wander stole the hat from a pair of interplanetary warlords who were fighting over, and abusing, its item-conjuring powers.]]

* And let's not forget the Mad Hatter from the DCU. As the name implies, he is a psychotic supervillain with a range of lethal headware. His "normal" hat (if you can call it that) just lets him [[MindControl control people's minds]]; hats for special occasions include exploding hats, gas-emitting hats, hats that let you fly, and hats with hilarious pop-out guns.

* In ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' Ririka receives a nurse-like hat as a present from Nozumu. It ends up becoming her TransformationTrinket for becoming a MagicalGirlWarrior.



* In the ''Literature/{{Nibelungenlied}}'', the ''Tarnkappe'' grants the wearer invisibility. Fun thing: It was originally not a hat (cap), but an [[InvisibilityCloak cloak]] (cape). Due to changes of language, with ''kappe'' shifting its meaning from 'cloak' to 'hat', it became interpreted as a hat.
** In modern German, the name has become the word for all kinds of stealth technology.

* An episode of ''{{Doug}}'' had the eponymous character find a hat that gave him amazing luck, which he became so attached too he would refuse to take it off even when getting a haircut. By the end of the episode it flies off to places unknown and everything returns to the StatusQuo.
