->You see a person wearing a distinctive hat pushing through the crowd. It's a witch hunter's hat.

* In certain section of ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' fandom, the Dawn Caste, two-fisted fighter Demetheus is known as the hat man, simply due to a wide-brimmed hat he's been illustrated with a few times.
* In [[LegendOfTheFiveRings L5R]], Isawa Tadaka has a nice hat. Seen [[http://aprillee.tripod.com/ccgl5r/tadaka500x375.jpg here]]. Also fairly excellent on the [[TookALevelInBadass Experienced 2 card]].
* The High Elves of ''WarhammerFantasy'' and the Eldar of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' both have an fascination with really, really tall helmets. The converted [[PhysicalGod Avatar]] at the bottom left of [[http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/blogPost.jsp?aId=12800033a this page]] takes the cake, however.
* Murlynd's Hat. In the ''{{Greyhawk}}'' [[DungeonsAndDragons D&D]] setting, Murlynd of The Company of Seven's leather chapeaux can have near any non-magical object be pulled out of it, and it grants a degree of protection. He also had revolvers and a whip, making him probably the most badass wizard/paladin in existence. But the hat man...the hat.
** In the ''ForgottenRealms'' setting, Elminster's large wizard's hat is one of his most distinguishing features. (Along with his [[BadassBeard flowing beard]] and smoking pipe).
* The Commissars of the Imperium from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. ''They'' aren't nice to anyone, [[YouHaveFailedMe least of all their own troops]], but the [[CommissarCap hats]] are pretty cool.
** Though at least [[CiaphasCain one commissar]] would rather wear a helmet...
** All [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]] of the Blood Axe clan seem to love Commissar's hats, or similar peaked caps looted from other officers.
** While we're talking about orks, several Freebooters wear pirate hats, the most notable of them being Kaptin Badrukk's.
** It's a long running joke (with some truth to it) among 40k fans that the person with the biggest hat in any given place is the most important person there.
* WarhammerFantasy: TheEmpire. ''Every bloody soldier'' has some sort of outrageous wide-brimmed plumed construction, or a massive plume on a metal helmet. Except for the archers. Grand prize has to go to the triple-feathered hat in the [[http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440090a&prodId=prod20010 Empire General kit]], though (the one on the mounted guy in the picture).
* The Chaos Dwarves in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' apparently had hats whose height reflected the wearer's status. The superstructure of their warships also tended to look like giant versions of their hats.
* In ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'', your character gets an 'Outrageous Hat' as a trapping if you have Charlatan as a career.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' also has the Witch Hunters's Hat of Doom. Characters have take a will test against fear just by seeing it.
** The Lizardmen Skink Hero riding a [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Stegadon]] gets a choice between a skull hat (for a wizard) and a rather badass gold stegadon mask for a fighty hero. And for all your giant mummified frog fashion needs, there's Lord Kroak's deathmask. Of course, since so few Lizardmen wear any clothing at all, they ''have'' to make the headgear badass.
* The Magic Burner for ''BurningWheel'' covers wizard characters, who as part of the traditional RobeAndWizardHat can find themselves with the "Impressive Hat" described as follows:
--> This character's hat is mightily impressive. It can be seen for miles! It's so impressive that people often remember the hat more than the person.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' has several, such as the BadAss Bandanna, the Helm of Peripheral Vision, the Horny Helmet, and the Helm of Courage (which is on backwards). For the grand prize, we have...the ''Magnificent Hat'', complete with what appears to be [[Webcomic/GirlGenius a Jägermonster]] looking unusually proud. Does any other game have a hat so nice it reflects curses? Nope.
* Many characters in [[IronKingdoms Privateer Press's Warmachine]] tabletop game have pretty nice hats, but special props go to Protector of Menoth for their multitude of clergy hats and Deneghra for hers. Since the setting is ''SteamPunk'', it's kind of required to have one.
* In the party game Werewolf/Mafia, a role with a Nice Hat, Big Hat or White Hat will always be revealed upon elimination, even if roles would normally be hidden. A Black Hat, by contrast, will never be revealed regardless of circumstances.
* ''Characters/{{Pathfinder}}'': Alahazra the oracle sports a [[http://paizo.com/image/content/PathfinderRPG/PZO1115-Alahazra.jpg truly epic chapeau.]] And Imrijka the inquisitor has her [[http://paizo.com/image/content/PathfinderCampaignSetting/PZO9227-AhererFight.jpg wide-brimmed red number.]]
** A [[http://cdn2.infrno.net/system/photos/27172/thumb/Untitled.png?1340991835 Cassisian]] familiar, which proves that Evil doesn't get all the stylish options. Why settle for an ordinary hat when you can wear a living angel on your head?
* ''MagicTheGathering'' has many of them, ranging from [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=47449 Kaldra's awesome helmet]] to [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=Voidmage%20Husher whatever this is Voidmage Husher is wearing]], but worthy of note is [[GothicHorror Innistrad]], with plenty of hats handed out to its struggling human populace. To quote creative director Doug Beyer: "And hats. If we were going to a gothic horror setting then ''[[OhMyGods BY HOLY AVACYN ON HIGH]] THERE WOULD BE HAAAATS''."
* The fan made game Touhou: Mystical Yokai of Necrophantasia (usually shortened to MYON) is based on the Touhou video game series where every character ever either has a nice hat or a fancy ribbon. [[WordOfGod NO EXCEPTIONS.]] This is so prevailing that Hat is actually a stat for characters!
* In the ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' game, [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Magician Dark Magician]] has such a neat hat, that he seems to have started a style; a lot of other famous Spellcasters have adopted it, including most who are associated with him, like his apprentice [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Magician_Girl Dark Magician Girl]], [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Sorcerer_of_Dark_Magic Sorcerer of Dark Magic]], and even the far more modern [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gagaga_Magician Gagaga Magician]], it seems.
** Of course, the monster with the coolest hat in the game is arguably Cosmo Queen. [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Cosmo_Queen Seriously, just look at it!]] So much that it's become a tradition in fanfics for someone to comment on it when she appears.
