The Hypnocrown in Final Fantasy VII.

Hats (帽子, Boushi?) are a recurring type of headgear on the series. They are often used by melee and magical-based jobs that cannot equip helms, like the Thief, the Black Mage, and the Blue Mage. Examples of recurring hats on the series are the Hypno Crown, the Red Cap, and the Gold Hairpin.

From PlayStation titles onward, like Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy Tactics, Ribbons began to be classified as accessories.
