* Creator/CirqueDuSoleil ''loves'' nice hats for its characters, ranging from bowlers to crowns to baseball caps to miscellaneous eccentric headpieces. The following specific examples are hats that ''also'' have special powers.
** The blue top hat in ''Theatre/LeCirqueReinvente'' and its partial remake ''Theatre/{{Fascination}}'' turns an "Ordinary Person" into a whimsical ringmaster; at the show's end he's changed back by removing it.
** The blue bowler left behind by the title character in the opening scene of ''Theatre/{{Quidam}}'' transports the TroubledChild Zoe to a MagicalLand when she puts it on.
** When TheEveryman hero of the [=IMAX=] short ''Film/CirqueDuSoleilJourneyOfMan'' loses his familiar black bowler as a young man, a Satan analogue gives him a golden one that winds up granting him a fortune, knowledge, and power...but not true happiness, as he becomes an isolated middle-aged man. Once he realizes what he's lost and decides to reconnect with other people, he tosses it away for his old hat, found by a Vagabond Girl...[[spoiler: and it has its own magic, turning him into a loving, lively old man]].
** In the final episode of the made-for-[=TV=] WidgetSeries ''Solstrom'', the top hat worn by the doorman of the CoolestClubEver [[spoiler: controls his robot bouncers]] so long as he has it on. [[spoiler: If someone else puts it on, the robots will obey ''them''.]]
* In ''{{Man of La Mancha}}'', Don Quixote mistakes [[MockGuffin a barber's shaving basin]] for the Golden Helmet of Mambrino. HilarityEnsues.
* In ''Theatre/TheGoldenApple'', Lovey Mars and Mrs. Juniper start a conversation by commenting on the magnificent hats they and Miss Minerva are wearing to the church social.
* The Victor Herbert operetta ''Mlle. Modiste'' was set in a Parisian millinery, and one of its refrains ran: "Hats have made the woman, and they always will."
* ''Theatre/LesMiserables'': Eponine is usually costumed with a rather nice brown Baker Boy hat.
