A headband that protects the wearer against sleep. Many creatures require sleep to live, therefore making sleep a difficult necessity of life to avoid. This headband was made for those hard workers who cannot afford to stay idle and need to keep themselves together at all times. This accessory dispels all drowsiness when fastened tightly around the head.

Headband (はちまき or ハチマキ, Hachimaki?, lit. Headband) is a recurring helmet in the series. It is often a low-ranked helmet that provides low boosts to stats outside of Defense, or is an accessory that prevents statuses, usually Sleep and Stun.

A head piece with a similar name is the Twist Headband. In Final Fantasy XII, the Twist Headband armor piece is simply called Headband.
