Does your Minecraft skin have a bad haircut?

Some of these hat mods are purely aesthetic, while others provide functional value.

The common thread between all these hats is that they all look fantastic!

Supported Version: 1.12

We often think of ourselves as the dominant species on the planet.

But did you know that ants make up about the same biomass as us on Earth?

This mod adds ants to your game of Minecraft.

And if reading the fun fact mentioned above made you insecure about our place on the planet, this mod also allows you to take this insecurity out on them.


By turning them into hats, of course!

The mod adds ants, fire ants, and bullet ants, each of which can be turned into a hat.

Leave it to humans to turn any species we encounter into a fancy hat.

Hilariously enough, these ant hats are quite powerful, with the bullet ant hat being stronger than the diamond helmet.

If you’ve ever read or watched Spiderman, you know it’s about proportional strength.

Hat Stands is an add-on to the Hats mod, which (spoiler alert!) will appear later on this list.

Ever wonder how your Minecraft dogs and cats experience the game?

Ears is a mod that lets you feel more like a domesticated animal.

Maybe you have a dog instead. That’s fine too, because you can make your own ears and customize them using the Ear Skin Manipulator website.

Hats for players. Hats for mobs.

There’s no shortage of hats here.

With how this mod gives hats to everyone, I’m surprised there isn’t a Russian fur hat. You know, because communism.

To get a hat, you need to steal it by killing a mob that’s wearing one.

Okay, so maybe this mod isn’t super communist…

There are various tiers of hats here, all based on rarity.

The highest tier you can get is legendary. Basically any hat at this tier is designer.

And this mod also lets you make a hat launcher. Unlike many guns, this one isn’t used to kill other beings.

The hat launcher is for giving your passive mobs some fancy hats!

Poor things are too passive to kill a monster and steal it themselves.
