- Main article: Crown Hat
Wearing this hat grants you immunity to all attacks except Lightning. A player can easily destroy mines without getting stunned by touching them. This can let players who wear the hat walk over mine bridges without falling.
In Deathmatch Mode, the Crown Hat still offers you immunity to attacks except Lightning. However, once you are hit with an attack that isn't Lightning, the hat will fall off. You will not be stunned, but the Crown Hat must be picked up again before you are granted immunity again. This allows other players the potential to grab the Crown Hat.
The Crown is awarded by getting 5,000 points in F@H, or by becoming a moderator. There are also VIP crowns given out by Jiggmin, the most famous case being SteveDX20, who coaxed Jiggmin for one because he had created a Campaign level.
