* In Creator/AlanDeanFoster's series ''The Damned'', all of humanity wears the BloodKnight hat once an interstellar war lands in our laps. And it's a good thing, too, because every other species in these novels either wear the Programmed For Pacifism hat or the Reluctant Clumsy Warrior hat, and being good at killing things is our only hope to survive in the face of technological superiority. Well... that and being immune to telepathy. Humans are the only species that doesn't have a single, unified culture, because we're the only ones who're [[HumansAreBastards such bastards]] that we can't even get along with members of our own species.

* This was a major complaint in WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon's review of DeusExHumanRevolution and DeusExMankindDivided: Humanity's hat in 2032 is cybernetic augmentation. There is very little casual dialogue or worldbuilding not devoted to augmentations, the impact of which was supposedly able to revive Detroit and construct a Chinese LayeredMetropolis from scratch within... a couple decades from now. This is in contrast to the original DeusEx, which explored a multitude of themes from terrorism to transhumanism.



** Human colonies tend to take after one or two particular cultures; Harvest had a mix of American Midwest and Scandinavian, Reach's original Hungarian settlers still had a major influence on the planet's culture, the Rubble's population seems to be largely Hispanic, etc.

** ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' introduced the Shansheeth in the episode "Death of the Doctor". They resemble vultures and their hat is that they're the undertakers of the universe. Sarah Jane [[ArbitrarySkepticism didn't buy it at first.]]



-->'''Gibbis:''' "All I want is to go home and be conquered and oppressed, is that too much to ask?!"
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' had an episode on the planet [[MeaningfulName Litigara]] where 90 % of inhabitants were lawyers and the remaining 10 % servants who ran the various non law-related services.

* Not quite as obvious, but quite present: all Twi'lek girls are exotic dancers, all Hutts are gangsters, all Bothans are spies, all Ithorians are pacifists, etc. (See also SingleBiomePlanet). Of course, almost any species, Hatted or not, may show up as a Jedi (even a Hutt or two), and there are numerous other exceptions. In recent years, some writers grew tired of these stigmas and began [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] and subverting them--for example, showing a couple of Ithorian criminals in one of the ''Comicbook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' comics and claiming that Ithorians "stay all peaceful and polite" by "throwing guys like these out." In many cases, the hats in ''Franchise/StarWars'' seem to have been placed by the fans or ExpandedUniverse writers. The films indicate that at the very least, nearly every species in the galaxy has senators. Gungan society shows a diversity, featuring overbearing rulers, goofy outcasts and courageous soldiers.

* 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 [[StartMyOwn 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.

* Almost all examples from the ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' are cases of {{flanderization}}: Authors will take the one mention a race or species has in the movies and expand it to be true for all members of that race or species. Luke got his dogfighting skills racing through desert canyons? All Tatooinians are great pilots. Leia says Alderaan has no weapons? They're all pacifists. Han says to never tell him the odds? All Corellians hate odds. Many Bothans died to get the Death Star plans? All Bothans are spies.

** The Abbai's hat is a focus on "community", the Brakiri's hat is business (more corporate culture as an ideal, rather than a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' Ferengi-style "profit," though of course that is their ultimate goal). The Drazi's hat is pretty much "violence" -- more specifically, the idea that a brawl pretty much solves any problem. The Llort's hat is basically kleptomania. The Shadows and Vorlons of course proudly promote their hats of "chaos" and "order and obedience" respectively, and try their hardest to make the younger races wear them too.
* ''Series/{{Lidsville}}'' takes the concept to its furthest extreme -- a world entirely populated by actual anthropomorphic talking hats. Amusingly, despite being a planet of literal hats, it was not a planet of figurative hats.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' had an episode on the planet [[MeaningfulName Litigara]] where 90 % of inhabitants were lawyers and the remaining 10 % servants who ran the various non law-related services.
** It could be called a planet of balaclavas, since that's what the lawyers always seemed to wear. Also, the Judge wore a hat that was a mix between a sombrero and a dinner plate, and (like the uniform) the colour looked like [[Literature/HarryPotter Dolores Umbridge]] picked it out.
** The Nebari are presently attempting to make their home planet a Planet of Hats through brutal enforcement of the law- to the point that dissenters are often simply brainwashed into perfect citizens. As a result, the only Nebari encountered in the show are either cold-hearted police officers or rebellious criminals like Chiana.
** 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.
* In the first appearance of Captain Jack Harkness in ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor explains to Rose that in the future, humanity's Hat becomes being more or less everywhere and [[ExtremeOmnisexual having sex with more or less anything]].

* ''Series/{{Lidsville}}'' takes The Twelve Colonies of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' occasionally fall into this, in function if not in populace. Aerilon was the concept breadbasket of the colonies, and everyone from it is perceived to its furthest extreme -- be some sort of hick (which is why Baltar adopted a world entirely populated by actual anthropomorphic talking hats. Amusingly, despite being more upper class accent). The Gemenese believe in the literal truth of scripture. Sagittarons are downtrodden, and mad about it.

*** The Goa'uld deliberately stagnate the culture of any people they transplant. They like to keep them primitive, because 1) primitives are more easily coerced into worship by their awesome-but-impractical weapons, and 2) primitives are absolutely no threat to them (the Goa'uld really hate it when people become advanced enough to see they aren't gods). Earth only developed to the point of beinga threat because the Goa'uld lost access to the Earth stargate and then *forgot where the planet was*. The Asgard also (somewhat) stagnated the Norse people they transplated because a treaty they had with the Goa'uld didn't allow any protected planet (the planets the Goa'uld agreed not to touch) to develop to a point where they would be a threat to them. The Asgard were not in a position to fight the Goa'uld due to the war with the Replicators, so the transplanted humans were kept relatively primitive (though not so much as the Goa'uld transplanted ones) for their protection.

* The districts in ''Acca13TerritoryInspectionDept'' are somewhere between this and FantasyCounterpartCulture, with a nice helping of [[RuleOfCool Rule of Quirky]]. Jumoku is the place where everything is bigger. Suitsu is [[PastRightNow preserved]] ''Literature/LesMiserables''-era Paris (complete with frequent coup attempts). Yakkara is basically Vegas. And on and on. There's even ThemeNaming for everyone from those districts (e.g. Korore residents are named after colors, Peshi residents are named after fish, Furawau residents are named after flowers, Rokkusu residents are named after rocks).

The Gao are a notable exception...but that's because Gao-Din is less a culture proper than a mixed bag.
