  • The Flipper Hat costs 2500 Gold.



  • Use the Flipper Hat to cross the River with ease.
  • Use the Flipper Hat to run away from more dangerous enemies by hopping into the river and going against the current.
  • Kill enemies by chasing them into the River and use your improved agility to terminate them.
  • Wear a different Hat when you are not in the Water.
  • Give yourself an edge over mobs and enemies by placing things (spikes, walls) to block their escape while wearing this hat. If they are not also using Flipper Hat, they will have a hard time getting out while being attacked. It's an even better idea to place two Saplings at the ends of the river. When placed correctly, it's impossible for enemies to escape without Flipper Hat, as Saplings are impossible to break and the current pushes them downward.
    • If they aren't placed correctly however, the person who you have trapped will be able to get out, although they might need to get Monkey Tail to do so.



  • The Flipper Hat is one of only two Animal Hats in the game that isn't free, with the other being the Bull Mask.
  • There is a Mob in the datafiles, called Fish, that resembles the Flipper Hat.
