* Nearly every [[MassiveRaceSelection race and culture]] in ''{{TabletopGame/Talislanta}}'' wears a hat to some degree or another: [[UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} Sarista]] are {{Lovable Rogue}}s, Danuvians are {{Action Girl}}s and {{Non Action Guy}}s, [[WingedHumanoid Muses]] are {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s, [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Yassan]] are {{Gadgeteer Genius}}es, [[CatGirl Jaka]] are [[TheHunter hunters]], and so on. The Gao are a notable exception...but that's because Gao-Din is less a culture proper than a mixed bag.

Added DiffLines:

* The Tarulians in ''WesternAnimation/TheHairBearBunch'' episode "No Space Like Home" have an unorthodox custom. They select a new leader each day and lock the previous leader in a glass cage. Guess what happens when Peevly, Botch and the bears land on it.

* The Twi'Lek example above was eventually explained. In ''Legends'', the Twi'lek homeworld of Ry'loth is a DeathWorld that is {{tidally locked|Planet}} to the local star. Half the planet burns, the other half freezes. Civilization can only exist in the narrow twilight band between the two extremes, and those are constantly wracked by heat storms and inter-clan warfare. Life is so awful that many Twi'lek will sell themselves into slavery just to get passage off the planet, and a chance of ''maybe'' having a better life. But again, we see plenty of Twi'lek that subvert this trope, like one who is a mother in ''[[WesternAndimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars The Clone Wars]]'' or Bib Fortuna, second in command of Jabba's empire.
* Mandalorians (Boba Fett's people) ended up with two interesting Hats. They are ''very'' much the ProudWarriorRace who [[ChallengeSeeker seek out the biggest, nastiest]], [[WorthyOpponent worthiest challenge]] they can get to test themselves against it. Oddly enough, the fact they fight against the Republic and Jedi is a ''complement'' - Mandos are out to fight the best, and the Republic/Jedi ''are'' the best. The other hat? A ''fanatical'' emphasis on [[FamilyValuesVillain marriage, family, and raising the next generation of warriors]]. Even the name they call themselves (''Mando'ade'') translates to "children of Mandalore" (the title/regnal name of their leader).

* Interestingly, some of the human planets get Hats too. Especially Corellians (the planet of NeverTellMeTheOdds), Alderaanians (philosophical pacifists), and Mandalorians (planet of Boba Fett). Corellia actually has multiple hats. For one, they are the planet of the AcePilot and the [[BadassArmy Badass Space Navy]]--Han Solo, Soontir Fel, and Wedge Antilles are all renowned for this. More negatively, however, they are the CommanderContrarian. It doesn't matter what they're rebelling against, they simply rebel and bristle under galactic authority. They've told the Jedi to stuff it (they have [[StarMyOwn Green Jedi]], tied to the Corellian system and fully expected to have families and attachments). And in StarWarsTheOldRepublic, the planetary ''government'' told the Republic to stuff it, but the ''people'' of Corellia turned around and told their government ''and'' the Empire to stuff themselves - the Empire gets chased off the planet, suffering the loss of a ''full tenth'' of their army.

* The United Powers League of ''{{Starcraft}}'' took some very drastic measures to ''turn'' Earth into one in order to remove all the differences that lead to wars and other conflicts. They made English the official language of the world, banned all the old religions in favor of a philosophy of the "divinity of mankind", and made cybernetics and genetic engineering illegal, among other things. Those who did not conform to these new standards [[FinalSolution were forcibly rounded up and executed, leading to a death toll of 400,000,000]]. Doran Routhe had 40,000 of these dissidents selected to be put into cryogenic sleep and sent off to colonize other worlds, leading the Terrans to populate the Koprulu Sector that serves as the main setting of the games.

Added DiffLines:

** The Kanvians have a planet of mafia lords. Their government is based in the ruling of a criminal family over the others.
** Other races also seem to be very monocultural or extremely specialized; the Diagnosans are a species of medics, and of course the Peacekeepers are a species of soldiers.

** The episode "The Duh-Vinci Code" introduces a planet of {{Insufferable Genius}}es. How smart were they? LeonardoDaVinci left because he was the ''dumbest'' person there.

*** Klingons actually became this as a result of {{Flanderization}}. Originally, they were just Star Trek's analogue for the Soviet Union, and their depiction in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' hinted at a rich culture who even [[KlingonsEnjoyShakespeare enjoyed Shakespeare]] -- this was the trope namer for InTheOriginalKlingon, obviously. After the fall of the USSR, their ProudWarriorRace qualities were dialed up to 11.
