* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' gives us two PlanetOfHats races, the Namakians and the Saiyans. Both with justifications:
** We are introduced to the Namek race by Piccolo and Kami, who were original one person. Everyone in the race is green, reproduce asexually, is one gender (male), have mystical abilities, and is peace-loving with the exception of Piccolo who was the Nameless Namek's evil side that was corrupted by living on Earth. Part of the reason for the uniformity is that the Nameks we see in the main story, with the exception of the Nameless Namek, all came from one father after the race was brought to the brink of extinction. Which means any culture or other unique differences would be all but lost since everyone came from the same gene pool and raised by the same person. However, there are still subtypes or 'classes.' There are two castes; the Dragon Caste (consisting of those with magicial abilities and being able to create Dragon Balls i.e. Dende and Kami) and the Warrior Caste, those who are powerful in combat (Nail.) Piccolo Jr. (the good one) could be considered a hybrid due to being a fusion (but lacks Kami's ablities of creating the Dragon Balls.)

* In one MickeyMouse detective story Mickey and WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} are employed by aliens from a planet where everyone is a thief - its perfectly legal to steal, people are suspicious of someone who doesn't, and their leader got his position because he is such a great crook. (No, not by cheating. People ''voted for him'' because he was such a dishonest man.) They need an outsider because they are temporarily hosting an artifact shared with other, friendly planets, and they don't trust anyone on their own planet - with good reason.
* [[Comicbook/XMen The Mojoverse]] is an entire ''Dimension'' of Hats organized around television. Whoever has the best ratings is the DimensionLord.

* ''ComicStrip/BrewsterRockitSpaceGuy'' has had several. Possibly justified in the case of the Zombie Planet.
* ''ComicStrip/PrinceValiant'' occasionally features Islands of Hats. When Val is on a sea voyage, it's somewhat common for his ship to get waylaid by supernatural means. One of two things then happens: either Val is put to some bizarre test, or he comes to an island where all the inhabitants share a single characteristic.

No welcome wagon 'hello stranger' with that new coffee flavor for you!". This was homaged in the LiveActionAdaptation where Optimus Prime claimed the Autobots learned to speak English 'from your Internet'.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': In the earliest edition of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', Elves and Dwarves were classes. Which means that all Elves and all Dwarves had the same level progression, learned the same kills and abilities.
* 4th Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' splits the old traits of the elf race into two new races called "elves" and "eladrin". Because, you know, you can't have a single species wearing the intellectual hat and the close-to-nature hat at the same time.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Fantasy 2: The Madlands'', there is the region of Savringia. Thousands of years previously, two godlike entities decides to have a contest to see which one could create the most unlikely society. So they reduced themselves to energy and used that to create City-states of Hats. Currently there are about 30 but this is subject to change. There are the more ordinary Cities of Merchants, Tradesmen, and Priests, but there are also esoteric ones like Cities of Judges, Spiders, Grays, Silence, and the Fickle.
** From the same publisher comes GURPS Aliens and GURPS Fantasy Folk, which also fall under this trope.

* This was a major complaint in WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon's review of DeusExHumanRevolution and DeusExMankindDivided: Humanity's hat in 2032 is cybernetic augmentation. There is very little casual dialogue or worldbuilding not devoted to augmentations, the impact of which was supposedly able to revive Detroit and construct a Chinese LayeredMetropolis from scratch within... a couple decades from now. This is in contrast to the original DeusEx, which explored a multitude of themes from terrorism to transhumanism.

Added DiffLines:

* Many attempts to solve the Fermi Paradox (that there are no physical reasons why intelligent life should not be everywhere in the Universe, and yet we cannot see it) have invoked the Planet of Hats fallacy; assuming that "aliens" would never travel into interstellar space or be under some form of edict of non-interference, as if any and all aliens (or even every inhabitant of a single alien planet) would all behave exactly the same way.


* On ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', nearly almost every single sentient species that isn't a pony has a rather one-note culture. All [[OurDragonsAreDifferent]] minus [[TokenHeroicOrc Spike]] are greedy, aggressive and prideful monsters which act with disdain toward weaker creatures (they do have a [[NobleDemon nobler]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold side]], however), all [[OurGryphonsAreDifferent gryphons]] are money-obssessed, callous and unfriendly jerks who don't get along even among themselves, and all yaks are [[HairTriggerTemper short-tempered]], [[BoisterousBruiser obnoxious brutes]] with a rather [[HulkSpeak poor]] [[YouNoTakeCandle grasp on English.]]

*** Earth also has its own hat: GenreSavvy. SG-1 is the most GenreSavvy of them all, but most other minor characters show at least some signs of this trait. We [[HumansByAnyOtherName Tau'ri]] have a technological hat, too-- instead of basing more advanced tech off more exotic principles, we use fundamentally basic equipment in increasingly refined ways. This is particularly noted in our [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter really spectacular projectile weapons]].
** In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', the Wraith are a race consisting solely of warriors who live to eat. In the last season, Todd the Wraith mentions that feeding on humans is the driving force in their society with little beyond that. We did finally get a small glimpse of Wraith society in Season 5's "The Queen." Judging from that episode, the entire society is divided into Queens, who seem to spend their time intimidating one another, their male Advisors/Viziers, who seem to specialize in Magnificent Bastardry, and the possibly asexual Drones, whose duties apparently involve patrolling ships and standing guard (not unlike actual Soldier Drones in Bee colonies). All of them are in thrall to a prime Queen (called The Primary in this particular segment shown, but this may not be the case with every Wraith alliance). Exactly where the various Male Wraiths who serve as scientists and field commanders (who are also uniformly errhm, uniformed [[HellbentForLeather in leather]]) fit into this mix is never really shown.

** We are introduced to the Namek race by Piccolo and Kami, who were original one person. Everyone in the race is green, reproduce asexually, is one gender (male), have mystical abilities, and is peace-loving with the exception of Piccolo who was the Nameless Namek's evil side that was corrupted by living on Earth. Part of the reason for the uniformity is that the Nameks we see in the main story, with the exception of the Nameless Namek, all came from one father after the race was brought to the brink of extinction. Which means any culture or other unique differences would be all but lost since everyone came from the same gene pool and raised by the same person. However, there are still subtypes or 'classes.' There are two castes; the Dragon Caste (consisting of those with magicial abilities and being able to create Dragon Balls i.e. Dende and Kami) and the Warrior Caste, those who are powerful in combat (Nail and the original King Piccolo.) Piccolo Jr. (the good one) could be considered a hybrid due to being a fusion (but lacks Kami's ablities of creating the Dragon Balls.)

*** Particularly in the earlier episodes, nearly every planet the SG-1 team visits is based off of a particular human culture. It's a justified or at least handwaved by saying that the people were transplanted to that planet from Earth, and their culture has just been stagnating since. There are the Middle Ages, the Norse, the Greeks, and, of course, the ancient Egyptians, among others. Justified in that most of these planets were supposedly populated by people of earth who had been taken to that planet by one of the more highly-developed species - the Goa'uld and the Asgard being the typical abductors.

* Not quite as obvious, but quite present: all Twi'lek women are exotic dancers, all Hutts are gangsters, all Bothans are spies, all Ithorians are pacifists, etc. (See also SingleBiomePlanet). Of course, almost any species, Hatted or not, may show up as a Jedi (even a Hutt or two), and there are numerous other exceptions. In recent years, some writers grew tired of these stigmas and began [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] and subverting them -- for example, showing a couple of Ithorian criminals in one of the ''Comicbook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' comics and claiming that Ithorians "stay all peaceful and polite" by "throwing guys like these out." In many cases, the hats in ''Franchise/StarWars'' seem to have been placed by the fans or ExpandedUniverse writers. The films indicate that at the very least, nearly every species in the galaxy has senators. Gungan society shows a diversity, featuring overbearing rulers, goofy outcasts and courageous soldiers.
* Almost all examples from ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'' are cases of {{flanderization}}: Authors will take the one mention a race or species has in the movies and expand it to be true for all members of that race or species. Luke got his dogfighting skills racing through desert canyons? All Tatooinians are great pilots. Leia says Alderaan has no weapons? They're all pacifists. Han says to never tell him the odds? All Corellians hate odds. Many Bothans died to get the Death Star plans? All Bothans are spies (there, it isn't even specified that 'Bothans' were a species).
