** We are introduced to the Namek race by Piccolo and Kami, who were original one person. Everyone in the race is green, reproduce asexually, is one gender (male), have mystical abilities, and is peace-loving with the exception of Piccolo who was the Nameless Namek's evil side that was corrupted by living on Earth. Part of the reason for the uniformity is that the Nameks we see in the main story, with the exception of the Nameless Namek, all came from one father after the race was brought to the brink of extinction. Which means any culture or other unique differences would be all but lost since everyone came from the same gene pool and raised by the same person. *** However, there are still subtypes or 'classes.' There are two castes; the Dragon Caste (consisting of those with magicial abilities and being able to create Dragon Balls i.e. Dende and Kami) and the Warrior Caste, those who are powerful in combat (Nail and the original King Piccolo.) Piccolo Jr. (the good one) could be considered a hybrid due to being a fusion (but lacks Kami's ablities of creating the Dragon Balls.)

* Most episodes of ''SuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' featured Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach travelling to a different world built around a particular theme (e.g., karate, rock-n-roll, cowboys, rap). Also, Bowser and his minions always seemed to conform to the "hat" of the world, appearing as a different stock villain in each episode.

* Another example of this is in StephenieMeyer's book "Literature/TheHost" which features a horde of peace loving aliens which invade earth and take over the body of almost everyone who lives there. This is used (apparently) deliberately as an excuse for the aliens, who hate violence, to [[PuppeteerParasite bodysnatch]] the human race, as because all of them are so similar in their views and personality, they do not understand the diversity in human morality, and assume all of us are evil.

** The FanDiscontinuity sequel ''StarControl 3'' takes this to strange extremes, with many aliens having unbelievably specific Hats. The Owa, for instance, practice chivalry and know about antimatter science, and you never learn anything else about them.

* The various alien races from ''StarControl'' come from different varieties of Planet of Hats. The Spathi are [[DirtyCoward cowardly to the point of paranoia]], the Pkunk are hippy-dippy psychics, the Umgah are psychotic practical jokers, the Druuge are slavers, and there are ''multiple'' species of ScaryDogmaticAliens (Ilwrath, Mycon, Ur-Quan Kzer-Za ''and'' Kohr-Ah) and [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Guys]] (the Thraddash, the Shofixti, and the Yehat).

* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', each kingdom has a particular theme, and some involve a "hat" piety, invention, etc. However, the quest character for each kingdom is sometimes in opposition to that theme rather than an exemplar of it; for example, the kingdom of temples and paladins (Whitehelm) has you receive your quests from a vampire (Sapphira) who is being attacked by the pious folk.

* Interestingly, some of the human planets get Hats too. Especially Corellians (the planet of NeverTellMeTheOdds), Alderaanians (philosophical pacifists), and Mandalorians (planet of violent badass mercenaries). 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.

** {{Lobo}} occasionally encounters hat planets, such as planets made entirely from highway (in the ''Lobo'' comic series), a vacation planet (''The Last Czarnian'' mini-series), and a planet populated by religious fundamentalists who immediately explode upon contact with any infidels by triggering an apparently inherited power through pushing down their head onto their shoulder.

* The fal'Cie of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII''. There are over a million of them on Cocoon alone, and they are all JerkassGods who consider humanity to be essentially livestock. 100% of the fal'Cie are in on the plan to [[spoiler:force the Creator to return by killing all of Cocoon's humans, which they figure will get his attention]]. Even the one whose job is to open the pod bay doors.
