The Basket Hat is a male hat found in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Its armor counterpart is the Ninja Gear.


Ninja Gear and Basket Hat (EBF5)

The Basket Hat in EBF5.

The Basket Hat is a traditional Asian conical hat, also known as Asian rice hat, made of straw. It is a pale tan color with a black top, and has several rivets in the front of it.

The Basket Hat provides a modest boost to both defenses, but also provides a significant bonus for Evade and Accuracy. It is most notable for its unique ability to boost the power of thrown items (Shuriken and the Hand Bomb). Equipping the Basket Hat doubles their base power, turning them both into more viable weapons. With the Ninja Gear equipped at the same time, they become viable and spammable weapons with 210 and 240 base power respectively. While this does come at the cost of being able to choose the player's armor (and therefore resistances and stats), the power is quite impressive with the corresponding elemental weapon.

Outside of thrown item based builds, there is fairly little reason to use the Basket Hat. The Headband has superior stats and more resistances, while the Spelunking Hat trades a small amount of Evade for significantly better stats in all areas the Basket Hat gives bonuses to.

The Basket Hat resists Thunder, Weaken and Tired. All but the Thunder resistance become immunity at level 5.
