* The Japanese tale ''[[https://justanimeforum.net//threads/japanese-culture-princess-hachikatsugi.5389/ Hachikatsugi-hime]]'' ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "the bowl-wearing princess"]]) has FallenPrincess Hachikatsugi, who is told by her dying mother to always wear a big wooden bowl on her head; she even puts it on her, and somehow [[ClingyMacGuffin it stays on the girl's head and she cannot take it off]]. After Hachikatsugi runs away from home to escape from her WickedStepmother, the bowl-turned-into-a-NiceHat actually saves her life when she tries to kill herself by jumping into a river but a fisherman spots the floating bowl/hat and pulls on it, also pulling the half-drowned teenage girl underneath. Hachikatsugi is then taken to the presence of the local lord, who hires her as a maid, [[UptownGirl and soon the lord's youngest and still unmarried son falls for her]] [[ParentalMarriageVeto much to the chagrin of his parents]]... [[spoiler: The parents plan to hold a "wife contest" to unfavorably compare Hachikatsugi to the wives of their other sons and make her give up; [[InsecureLoveInterest Hachikatsugi]] suffers an HeroicBSOD when she finds out, but when her boyfriend gives her an AnguishedDelcarationOfLove, the bowl/"hat" falls off on its own... [[ChekhovsGun revealing itself as]] a magical BagOfHolding, full of the riches and treasures that Hachikatsugi needs to prove her heritage ''and'' win the "wife contest". The whole family is impressed and welcome Hachikatsugi into their clan, allowing her to marry the youngest son.]]

** Mercury/Hermes from [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Graeco-Roman myth]] also has a hat like this. It may be partly this dress choice (along with the common interest in poetry) that led the Romans and Germanic peoples to identify Woden/Odin/Wotan with Mercury, on the face of it a rather odd match.



** Also in the wide-brimmed-hat club is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ankou Ankou]], the Breton version of TheGrimReaper. Doesn't get much more awesome than [[http://www.ph-ludwigsburg.de/html/2b-frnz-s-01/overmann/baf4/bretagne/le_char_de_l_ankou%5B1%5D.jpg that]].

* The Guatemalan folk legend "[[https://zonaascensio.wordpress.com/2012/10/16/el-sombreron-a-guatemalan-folk-legend/ El Sombrerón]]" (aka "the man in the large hat") features a boogeyman-like creature who enchants beautiful women [[MagicMusic with his singing and guitar-playing]] into falling in love with him and being unable to sleep or eat. Sources differ on El Sombrerón's true nature and appearance, but the one constant is the large sombrero that he always wears (and according to some illustrations, is bigger than the rest of his body!).
