** If we're going to get into that franchise, we ''must'' mention the ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'', {{Space Pirate}}s with the requisite hats (or a do-rag in the case of the SixthRanger) built into their Ranger helmets ''and'' their Megazord!
** Speaking of the Megazords, the ones in ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''/''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' and ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger''/''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' also have Nice Hats (a pointy wizard hat and a samurai helmet, respectively).
** The original GiantRobot NiceHat belonged to Galaxy Mega from ''Series/DenjiSentaiMegaranger'' (Galaxy Megazord, ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace''), due to the way the Mega Shuttle combined with the Mega Ship (the Galaxy Mega's head folds out from the underside, leaving the wings to look like a brim). As such, its parody in ''Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger'' wears an ''enormous'' top hat.

** Not one to be outdone in the fashion department, Romana sported at least four (if you count ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]''). Not counting the awful Burberry one from ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E3TheStonesOfBlood The Stones of Blood]]'' that today screams uncool, there's ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E4TheAndroidsOfTara The Androids of Tara]]'', ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath City of Death]]'' ([[FetishFuel topping off a rather memorable outfit]]), ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E6Shada Shada]]'' and the time she wore the entire Fourth Doctor get-up.

** Eleven has a fondness for hats which, combined with his rampant AttentionDeficitOohShiny, often results in him acquiring a new one in the middle of saving the world. In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang The Big Bang]]'', he picks up a fez out of a museum, claiming that "Fezzes are cool". Amy and River take initiative to stop him from adding this to his accoutrements (which already contains [[BowtiesAreCool a bowtie]]) by snatching it off his head, throwing it into the air, and ''blowing it up''. The fez has now reached MemeticMutation levels, both in the show and fandom. It has become the Doctor's ongoing battle to ''try and keep a fez''. He even steals one from Einstein. In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut The Impossible Astronaut]]'', he turns up in America wearing a Stetson (which makes additional appearances later on), only to have River Song ''shoot it off his head''. Top hats, a pirate captain hat and a bowler hat have also made their way onto his head [[note]]In ''Series/DoctorWhoConfidential'', it was revealed that Creator/StevenMoffat had anticipated Creator/MattSmith growing attached to the fez and devised a [[KickTheDog cunning]] plan to kill the fez in its introductory episode, [[TheChessmaster before Matt even knew about it]][[/note]].

* German popular science program "nano" has a recurring series "Wie jetzt?" vaguely akin to Mythbusters, but it mainly runs on plotting a cliche'd Macho character (the camera man) against the female reporter. The guy always wears a hat. He probably thinks it's a HatOfPower. (Oh no it ain't.)

** At least once he has had a "hat-off" with a guest.

* ''Series/TicTacDough: During the Wink Martindale era (1978-1985), on Friday shows -- or on occasion other days of the week -- he would show off a hat that had been sent to him by a viewer. Martindale had more than 750 of these hats in his collection by the time he left the show.

* ''TheTudors'' displays quite a fantastic plethora of {{Nice Hat}}s, most notably those worn by King Francis I and Charles Brandon. The good people of England never complained about Henry VIII creating his own church because they were too DistractedByTheSexy.

* In the SciFiChannel's production of ''Series/{{Dune}}'' there were several {{Nice Hat}}s, mostly notably the Bene Gesserit, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ghm.jpg seen here]] (the hat is the thing extending back from her head).

* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': Literally, the phrase "nice hat" becomes part of a gag. In the early Season 2 episode "Torn Between Two Lovers," Rachel is interviewing job seekers for her new restaurant and is wearing a hat. One of the applicants -- a young immigrant -- compliments her hat. "You have a nice hat!" he exclaims. But when Rachel begins asking questions about his background and experience, all he can reply with is, "You have a nice hat!" Rachel catches on quickly that the man knows very little English and tells him, in not so many words, that she'll call if he's hired and sends him on his way. "You have a nice hat!" the man says as he walks out the door. "Thank you!" replies Rachel.

* The title characters of ''Series/TheMusketeers'' are rarely seen without their signature feathered brimmed hats (except D'Artagnan, even though it was his trademark in the original story). Porthos also wears a black bandanna, sometimes under his hat.
