The happy hat, also known as the joy hat and Hat of Happiness, is a recurring hat in the Dragon Quest series. This wondrous pink wizard hat recovers the wearer's MP while walking on the field. It appears to have a magical flower growing from it.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The happy hat has a defence bonus of +15. It can be worn by Borya, Kiryl, Maya, and Meena. It is found occasionally after defeating or stealing from a Liquid Metal Slime.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The happy hat has a defence bonus of +35. It can be equipped by Bianca, Nera, the Hero's daughter, Sancho, and several monster companions. The hat is found in Gotha Castle behind a door that is locked with the Ultimate key. It can be sold for 6,750 gold but it is not recommended to do so since there is only one in the entire game.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The happy hat has a defence bonus of +35, but reduces style by 17. It is a prize for winning level 8 of the Best Dressed contest at Château de Sass. It can also be dropped by Liquid Metal Slimes.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The happy hat has a defence bonus of +37, but reduces style by 17. It can be worn by the Hero, Maribel, Ruff, and Sir Mervyn. It is not sold in any shops, but it can be won from the Lucky Panel at Buccanham's Casino. It can also be dropped by platinum king jewels. They can be sold for 10,000 gold, but it is not recommended to do so.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The happy hat has a defence bonus of +31. It can only be worn by Jessica and Angelo. It can be obtained from Dodgy Dave in Pickham in exchange for the Sandstorm spear or made in alchemy with the Feathered cap and Elevating shoes. Shops will take it for 10,000 gold coins. In the 3DS remake, another can be found in the new hidden post-game dungeon.
