* Let's not forget the classics: the Mad Hatter in ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' wears an impressive top hat. He's probably borrowing it from his store, as it's labeled "10/6", representing a price of ten shillings and sixpence. ThatOtherWiki says this would be about $100 today when adjusted for inflation, and notes that "this was likely to indicate a nice hat".

* The hat which Miles Vorkosigan sported in "[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga The Borders of Infinity]]", while imaginary, was definitely pretty awesome.
** Miles [[InvokedTrope deliberately invokes]] this trope. One of the other prison inmates asks why, if he is pretending to have a hat, he doesn't pretend to have an entire suit. Miles goes on for a couple of paragraphs explaining all of the important uses of a hat, [[RefugeInAudacity demonstrating with his imaginary hat]].

* The evil Bo Cleevil's wide-brimmed hat is his most prominent feature, especially since it casts the rest of his face in shadow. [[spoiler:And doing so hides the fact that he doesn't actually ''have'' a face, just disembodied eyes and a mouth.]]

* ''Literature/DaveBarrySleptHere'' says that the suffragettes finally won women the right to vote "by marching around in public wearing hats the size of elementary schools, a tactic later adopted, for reasons that are still unclear, by Queen Elizabeth."
