* The Japanese tale ''Hachikazuki-hime'' ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "the princess with a big straw hat"]]) gives us FallenPrincess Hachikazuki, who is told by her dying mother to always wear a big straw hat [[spoiler: to protect her MementoMacGuffin, placed inside a small box hidden under it.]] After Hachikazuki runs away from home to escape from her WickedStepmother, the NiceHat actually saves her life when she falls into a river but a fisherman spots the floating hat and pulls on it, also pulling the half-drowned girl underneath. She always keeps it on when in public, no matter what people say, honoring her mom's last request -- even when working as a maid for a noble family, [[UptownGirl whose son falls for her...]] [[spoiler: The parents of her beloved then demand her to do so, seeking to learn who she ''actually'' is before revoking their ParentalMarriageVeto. The MementoMacGuffin is discovered under the hat, its contents prove Hachikazuki's noble heritage, and she [[EarnYourHappyEnding earns her happy ending]].]]

* 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!).

* [[NorseMythology Odin]] had a [[RobeAndWizardHat wide-brimmed hat along with his cloak]] whenever he went out for a stroll or to impregnate Jotun women and so on.
** Mercury/Hermes from [[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.

** Similarly, Gandalf from [[TheHobbit Tolkien's]] [[LordOfTheRings works]] had his appearance directly based off of Odin, complete with the iconic traveler's hat. This is where the popular image of a wizard wearing robes and having a wide-brimmed pointy hat come from.

** Since Mat Cauthon from the ''WheelOfTime'' is an Odin {{Expy}}, he gains a really nice wide-brimmed hat in ''The Shadow Rising'' that he wears constantly even in battle.

** 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]].
