[[quoteright:350:[[Webcomic/GirlGenius http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gilsnicehat_3200.jpg]]]]
* Three regulars in ''CharbyTheVampirate'': Mye, Tonius, Kavonn. Also semi-regular character Yiska.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is loaded with Nice hats...
** The [[SuperSoldier Jägermonsters]] of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' wear a wide variety of headgear, but whatever they wear, they take [[SeriousBusiness very seriously]]. It's implied that dead Jägers are buried with their hat. Indeed, Nice Hats are practically their [[PlanetOfHats hat]]. This makes the scene where [[spoiler:Lars ''[[HeroicSacrifice postmortem]]'']] sort of becomes "honorary Jager"... well, [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20070209 listen to Maxim]].\\
\\
All of this is somewhat TruthInTelevision, since the Jägers (and the GG Verse in general) have heavily exaggerated elements of {{Prussia}} in their role and backstory: Prussia, the kingdom that brought you [[http://www.kaisersbunker.com/dunkelblau/helmets/dbh25.htm this]]. [[UpToEleven Even the eagle on top of that hat is wearing a hat.]] Prussian general Gerhardt "Vorwarts!" von Blücher, having helped win the Battle of Waterloo, donned Napoleon's captured hat, thus making clear to all the world that after 23 years of constant war, it was Really Truly All Over.
** Maxim goes hatless for some time after giving his hat [[spoiler: to Lars]]. Then comes the side story, "[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100519 Elsewhere: Maxim Buys A Hat]]", where he sets out to get a new one from "Ol' Man Death! -- De ''Big Guy Himself!''"
--->'''Maxim:''' A Hat iz a ''badge of honor!'' A ''Trophy'' vat ''must be plucked from off de head'' of a ''[[WorthyOpponent vorthy enemy!]]''
--->'''Oggie:''' Yah. Vun who happen to gots hyu same ''head size''.
** Ol' Man Death's hat is, of course, a [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100524 Nice Hat on its own]] (though nothing special by Jäger standards). What makes it truly special is the fact that it's [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100602 Old Man Death's hat]], and acquiring it means DefeatingTheUndefeatable.
** See also what girls in Mamma Gkika's cabaret sing for Jägers: "[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080519 ...but I STILL have my HAT!]]"
** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050223 Embi]] has a fine hat, too.
** A throw- er, ''blow''away [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20071116 character]] with the radio tuner hat is listed in the vol. 7 cast page only as "The Idiot in an Awesome Hat". Lord Selnikov's hat is pretty epic too, though.
** From the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' card game ''The Works'', we have General Cannonhat and his [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Amazing Cannon Hat]]. His epaulets even have little hands to plug his ears!
** [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080514 Gilgamesh's hat]] takes the cake, though. Easily. It has wings, spikes, tubes, his name in big letters with "[[FunetikAksent Schmott Guy!]]" underneath and a ''[[IncendiaryExponent burner]]'' [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20081110 on top]]. Possibly the Nicest Hat ''ever'', given by Jagers as a sign of respect. It even has a name, according to the cast page: Gil's Fabulous Hat. And someone whose job it is to take care of it.
*** [[LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain Gil just doesn't appreciate it]], [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20120116 though.]]
** Even the clanks wear hats!
** [[PsychoForHire Bangladesh DuPree's]] CommissarCap is quite nice as well.
** This may also have something to do with PhilFoglio's taste in accessories. His AuthorStandIn character is always depicted with the same black bowler. In ''ComicStrip/WhatsNewWithPhilAndDixie'' it was [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20081123 scorched by an explosion]], and later he lit it on fire to signify [[http://www.airshipentertainment.com/growfcomic.php?date=20100307 his]] short-lived FaceHeelTurn, and his card in one of the TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}} expansions was "Phil Foglio's Magnificent Hat". There was even a ''{{Nodwick}}'' [[http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/gamespyarchive/index.php?date=2002-08-28 strip]] where Phil's bowler somehow wound up in the dimension of the characters and gave DumbMuscle Yeagar [[AuthorAvatar epic]] powers.
* ''Webcomic/TheChapelChronicles'': Chapel almost always wears a hat. In [[http://www.chapelchronicles.com/comic/17 Lobster Delivery]], [[http://www.chapelchronicles.com/comic/18 Phone Call]], and [[http://www.chapelchronicles.com/comic/19 Gaga Dress Code]], she wears Lady Gaga hats. In [[http://www.chapelchronicles.com/comic/27 Hedgehog Constitutional]], she wears her own hedgehog as a hat. In [[http://www.chapelchronicles.com/comic/38 A Chobits Disaster]], she is wearing a hat from [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Azumanga Diaoh]] which is a representation of Chiyo-chan’s father.
* TheContinentals: Set in Victorian England 1889, the entire cast of characters in this steampunk murder, mystery, scifi adventure webcomic wear a variety of fashionable headwear of the day from top hats to derbys, etc. The most eyecatchingly noticeable would be the gender bending, cross dressing adventress Lady Fiona Fiziwigg, whose prominent and somewhat oversized top hats have earned her the nickname "her tophattedness" by the comics readers. Find it [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Continentals here]].
* One of the few recurring characters of ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' wears a black hat as a distinguishing feature. [[http://xkcd.com/405/ Do not mess with his hat.]] When startled, he actually [[http://www.xkcd.com/412/ retreats into his hat like a turtle]]. (And now, ''[[http://www.xkcd.com/455/ a challenger has appeared]]''.)
** Another recurring character also has a hat. This one likes to go on adventures, and otherwise [[http://xkcd.com/291/ follow his heart]].
* ''{{Narbonic}}'s'' ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST gets the all-caps treatment ''only'' when his hat is on.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', it's eventually revealed that Roy's blood oath of vengeance against Xykon was originally triggered over a NiceHat (well, a crown). [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0434.html No, it wasn't magic; Xykon just thought it looked nice, so he killed the guy who owned it.]]
* Dina's safari-style hat in ''ItsWalky'' She only removes it when [[spoiler: she's seconds away from death.]]
** ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'' switched the safari hat for a little monster cap.
* ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie'': Ozy wears a very, very large top hat. He and his best friend lampshade both his specific example and the trope on an epic scale [[http://ozyandmillie.org/2006/08/17/ozy-and-millie-1712/ here]].
* Relatedly, Lothar Hex, the cyborg-echidna mercenary/criminal of ''ExterminatusNow'' wears a signature hat, and is sent into an UnstoppableRage [[BerserkButton when it gets incinerated]].
** He has a new one... covered in ''asbestos''. The EN crew aren't necessarily the brightest stars in the galaxy.
** He also owns a special ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' viewing hat.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Flipside}}'', Maytag's jester hat isn't just nice, it reflects -- and maybe affects -- her personality. New characters quickly learn how different she is without it.
* See [[http://sluggy.com/daily.php?date=080916 this strip]] of ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''.
** Also, Nash Straw/Reynold Strom's wide-brimmed black hat, which complements his BadassLongcoat nicely. He even gets a version with [[SigilSpam Hereti-Corp's logo]] when he's working for them. And his rebel soldier counterpart in 4U City has one too.
* In ''Webcomic/SanThreeKingdomsComic'', which uses the DynastyWarriors character models, Cao Cao's hat has a small duck atop it, and is referred to as "the Duck Hat". One of his advisors, Guo Jia, wears a Baozi (Meat Bun) Hat. Both hats possess the power of hypnosis, but Guo Jia's is apparently stronger.
* ''Webcomic/PvP'' occasionally features the 'Gaming Fez', a Fez which makes you awesome at (virtually) any game BECAUSE the Fez makes you look awesome. Only the remarkably thick-headed Skull the Troll has proven able to handle its awesome, [[PowerGlows shining power]], while anyone else who've donned it soon became drunk on its power...
* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'''s Florence Ambrose receives a gold cloth hat that proves to be quite popular with robots for its transponder-blocking qualities: [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1500/fc01424.htm starting here]].
* Marten's (and, consequently, Hannelore's) [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1204 "Worry Hat"]] in ''QuestionableContent''.
* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Sarah's beret is so cute/awesome that the principal allows her to wear it despite it being against the school dress code. (Also, author Dan Shive is quite aware of the importance of hats, as seen [[http://www.egscomics.com/sketchbook/?date=2003-03-30 here]].)
* The Brigade du Chapeau from ''{{Kukuburi}}'' consists of a gang of strange creatures wearing hats with special abilities (such as Rendo's {{Hammerspace}} bowler hat).
* Webcomic/MegaTokyo: Largo's outfit [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1221 in this strip]] is impressive enough, but the hat is [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1222 impressive in its own right.]] It out-steampunks Gil's!
** In a later strip, when things seem likely to get violent, the hamster on the brim of his hat [[UpToEleven buckles up]]!
** And it [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/1252 flies]] too.
** [[http://www.megatokyo.com/extra/largobattlehat%5BRC%5D.gif Now]] a SchematizedProp.
* In ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob,'' Galatea's beret contains a holographic projector to make her appear human.
* It's really hard to beat the third guy in this [[http://www.teamspecialolympics.com/comic.php?sec=archive&auth=Scribblettes&cid=scrib/00071.gif Scribblette]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain Courtyard Droll's]] hat requires [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003681 a]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003682 four]]-[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003683 page]] [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003684 introduction]].
** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005460 He apparently has more of them.]]
** And how could we forget the [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002924 Bunny Sassacre Fedora?]]
--->'''EB:''' but i think we need to stop and acknowledge the bunny sassacre fedora i just made.
--->'''TT:''' It's awesome.
--->'''EB:''' yeah.
** [[spoiler:Aradia]] takes quite a shine to [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005489 Dad's hat]] (spoilers).
** The members of the Midnight Crew are very touchy about their hats, especially Diamonds Droog. Most of the Felt also have damn fine headgear.
* Being largely about ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' it isn't surprising that ''NerfNow'' features an assortment of nice hats with one storyline featuring various characters wearing Mini-Medic as a hat culminating in [[http://nerfnow.com/comic/369 Heavy wearing Mini-Medic as a hat while she wears a plush heavy wearing a knit hat as a hat.]]
** One strip involves a hat so nice, the Sniper thinks that it's [[http://www.nerfnow.com/comic/691 better than a three-way]].
* America in ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' has the [[http://humoncomics.com/awesome-hats best hat of all]]: Canada.
* [[RebelliousPrincess The Princess]] in ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'' always wears a LARGE cone hat with a tassel. The hat never falls off, [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/22/ even while she beats the stuffing out of someone]].
* In {{Magicandphysics}} the character SPDA wears a hat (suspiciously similar to the one in ''xkcd''). Also the character Marvil used to until [[spoiler: he sold his hat for beer]].
* In ''Webcomic/DaddyLongLegs'', ''everybody'' has a nice hat. Even the parasites.
* The six-armed ''{{Spinnerette}}!'', after a fat and gravity-powered villainess mocks her deodorant bill, angrily declares that "If I were going to insult you, I wouldn't go for the obvious. I'd make fun of ... ''your stupid HAT''!" The villainess is outraged - you can insult her, but ''no one'' insults traditional Alpine hats.
* Lowping, the Gnome rogue in Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth, ninja looted an epic mage hat, twice from Bloodrose, the group's mage. One of his most recurrent stock phrases (being a bot) is "I lewt da hat".
* ''NobodyScores'': Swank hats are Sara's ''bag''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Panthera}}'': Pardus [[http://www.pantheracomic.com/?p=1627 takes one from a guard]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Circuit}}'': most everyone wears a hat at some point, a gangster hat or a fun guy hat or a wizard hat, the hats help describe the character for the whole story or perhaps [[http://unbalancedhumors.com/?p=670 just a period of time]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Concession}}'''s Roland has a very nice flat cap. Thonnen even specifically asks him to leave it on during sex.
* In ''{{Sinfest}}'',
** [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=1821 Squidly goes haywire over a baseball cap]].
** [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4536 Seymour resorts to one to cover up his halo.]]
* Luca and Francesca of Webcomic/TheThingThatWouldNotLeave don a cap and a bandana, respectively.
* In ''BirdBoy'' the outfits worn by Bali's tribe include painted Native American style animal headdresses. Bali's is a bird (hence the title) with a beak so big it often hides most of his face. And it's pretty cool.
* [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/Roscoescaggs ROSCOE SCAGGS]] wears a strange yet impressive mix of wizard hat and winter cap.
* Valentine from ''Webcomic/{{Cloudscratcher}}''. Comes with being a Smooth Criminal homage.
* [[http://momogirl.deviantart.com/art/Kid-Katydid-and-Totter-Tate-380942586 Kid Katydid]] from Webcomic/TheBugPond wears a leaf on her head.
* In a flashback from ''Blog/SliceOfLife'', CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie wears her "Serious Hat" (a black top hat) when she's not joking around.
* Spoofed in [[http://neodusk.deviantart.com/art/Naruto-Intellectual-Intercourse-486458621 this]] ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'' fancomic, where Naruto derails Sasuke's MotiveRant by citing the Hokage's hat as a requirement for the position.
