12- King from Beautiful Katamari
Let's say you're a King with a massive head shaped like a stick of dynamite, and to draw attention away from your enormous melon you'd like an equally embellished Crown. Only some wisenheimer gives you a crown a fraction of your head-size. What's a King to do? Make his son roll into shit.
11- Parappa from Parappa the Rapper
Hat: Stocking Cap
You gain instant street-cred when you sport a stocking cap in the summer, and for a dog trying to make a name for himself in the rap game, street-cred is no easy thing to come by. Unfortunately, once you start rapping about driving tests and flea markets, not even the planet's sweetest stocking cap can save you.
10- The Great Tiger from Punch-Out
The next time you're in a boxing ring and your opponent enters with a massive turban affixed to his head, think twice before you complain to that Italian midget-referee. Because if he's anything like The Great Tiger, that jeweled turban will light up like a Christmas tree before he throws each punch.
9- Kung Lao from Mortal Kombat
Hat: GaleroI can only guess that for a deadly martial arts expert, nothing is more embarrassing than getting slain by a hat. However, if you are to die at the hands (or brim) of a hat, better it be a galero than this.
8- Ash Ketchum from Pokemon
Hat: Baseball Cap
When one is in the midst of a treacherous Pokemon battle, nothing can be more devastating than getting the sun in his eyes. I mean, how can someone bark out orders to his subservient creature-thing if the sun is forcing him to squint? Ash Ketchum has your answer: baseball cap.
7- Jill Valentine from Resident Evil
If you're going to fight an army of the undead, you want to be prepared, and nothing says "I'm going to stomp your zombie head in," better than a large blue beret. But just in case the zombies don't get your hat's message, it would be wise to pack an arsenal of explosive firearms as well.
