*** That isn't to say that we don't meet Klingons who are not Warriors. One episode of TNG makes reference to a Klingon Carpenter. On DS9 we meet a Klingon restaurant owner who plays a concertina-like instrument for his patrons. Worf enjoys Klingon operas, meaning there have to be Klingon opera performers. Worf's grandfather was a lawyer (albeit a military one as he held the rank of Colonel), and we meet another Klingon lawyer on DS9. However, they all do share one hat, in that they all do what they do with a great deal of passion, treating every endeavor as a battle to be won.

* In IDW's ''Transformers'' [[HasbroComicUniverse comics]], their homeworld of Cybertron has thirteen long-lost colony worlds, some of which have recently been reunited. Each one is uniquely quirky: Caminus is spiritual and resource-poor, everybody on Velocitron is a speed freak, everybody on Devisiun is half-sized twins, Eukaris is populated solely by animal-formers, and Carcer is a stratocracy that abhors lies. Two others have also been named: Prion, where everybody is tiny (relative to the average sixty-foot Cybertronian), and Tempo, which was full of philosophers.

** Pretty much every non-Transformer alien planet in ''TransformersGeneration1'' was made of hat. Including ''earth'' (our hat is a construction worker's hardhat, everybody wore them).

** Also in ''KOTOR'', one Twi'lek on Taris is an entrepreneur in the upper city who comments that her business doesn't do as well as it should because people there expect her to wear the dancer hat.

** The Klingons are [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy all war all the time]]. (They'd tell you their true hat is honor, but [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch that's not what you get in practice]], to protagonist Klingon Worf's disillusionment.) The Orcs from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are accused of being this, but with the exception of Worf in the Klingons' case, the Orcs are usually slightly more multidimensional.

** The Klingons are [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy all war all the time]]. (They'd tell you their true hat is honor, but [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch that's not what you get in practice]], to protagonist Klingon Worf's disillusionment.) )[[note]]They actually are a perfectly reasonable representation of a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honour#Cultures_of_honour_and_cultures_of_law society that runs on honor]]. The problem is that the word "honor" has multiple and very different meanings. They care about reputation, face, and glory a great deal, but the modern western concept of honor which is all tied up with ideals of chivalry, sportsmanship, and individual conscience means nothing to them. A prime example comes from ''[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E01E02TheWayOfTheWarrior The Way Of The Warrior]]'' where humans consider waiting cloaked near a disabled enemy ship to ambush any would-be rescuers to be cheap and cowardly and thus dishonorable, but to Klingons it's laudable because "in war, nothing is more honorable than victory." Worf tries to use both systems, with limited success; when the two are in conflict he tends to go with what his human adoptive parents taught him.[[/note]] The Orcs from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are accused of being this, but with the exception of Worf in the Klingons' case, the Orcs are usually slightly more multidimensional.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' has a good chunk of areas with its residents in a theme that plays to the architecture, and the purple coin stores will sell clothes that match (which can help you get a few Moons). For a more literal example, Bonnetton (also known as [[ShapedLikeItself the Cap Kingdom]]), is literally inhabited by sentient hats and have hats as a recurring theme around the level.

***Basically, they are the Mafia InSpace. The famed "Orion slave girls" are simply a different tactic - the males go in for strong-arm tactics while the females use HoneyTrap tactics aided by their pheromones. Since the one in "The Cage"/"The Menagerie" was an illusion, ''literally the only Orion we've seen who wasn't a villain is Uhura's roommate from one scene in the '09 movie.''

** Supposedly the El-Aurian hat is "listening", but we've only met three members of the species... one (Guinan) specializes in listening, but one was a con man (in a ''Deep Space Nine'' episode which lampshaded the "listening hat" thing by having a fellow prisoner try to come up to the con man and tell him his life story in jail, whereupon he responded by begging the guards to take the guy away from him) and one was a mad scientist. In that sense the El-Aurians have managed to subvert the usual Trekkian "one hat per species" rule. Although Guinan literally does wear some awesome hats.
