Magnificent Hat


Creator Da Boyz.
Purpose Pointing out who Gil is, gaining Jäger respect, and generally being magnificent.
First Appearance Gil earns the respect of the jäger bar.

Given to him by Da Boyz as a sign of respect, Gil's hat is truly the pinnacle of Jäger fashion.

When Gil leaves the lower levels of Mamma Gkika's bar, where the Jägermonsters are having their daily fight, The Unstoppable Higgs is given the honor and duty of Hat Bearing . Being the intelligent fellow that Higgs is, he knows when to "crown" Gil and when to ditch it (but it was recovered ).

Features of the HatEdit

  • Proud display stating "Gilgemesh Wulfenbach - Schmott Guy" (or "Wulfenbash", the spelling of the legend changes from scene to scene)
  • Vivid color scheme
  • Spikes
  • Wings
  • Fire

Current whereaboutsEdit

Gil wore the hat again to "herald" his presence back at Castle Wulfenbach (much to the surprise of everyone he met there), and although he was at first suspected of being an impostor by the staff; the hat served to clinch his identity.

After he confirmed that he was indeed the real deal to Boris, he immediately requests an officer to hide the rather voluminous chapeau and "never speak of it again". Captain DuPree came rushing to the room after hearing news of a magnificent hat, but by that point Gil had begun completely denying its existence.


Proof positive.


The appearance of this gift is foreshadowed in this comic .

Oddly, the wings that first appear[1] on the hat are no longer in evidence when Gil enters[2] Castle Heterodyne.

A "Magnificent Hat" is also a card in the game Munchkin from Steve Jackson Games. It was illustrated by Phil Foglio (a number of other webcomic artists did card art as well) and features a proto-Jagermonster in such a hat.
