The Bonneters[1] are a race of hat-like beings found in the region of Bonneton within the Cap Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey. They all have Eerie-like bodies, heads shaped like hats, and big eyes with irises of various colors. As demonstrated by Cappy, they can also take on the appearances of other hats, such as the Mario Cap, and capture other beings, both animate or inanimate. Male Bonneters have top hat-shaped heads with a more pronounced eyebrow ridge while female Bonneters have cloche hat-shaped heads with ribbons and wingtip eyelashes.

There are two recurring post-game quests involving Bonneters after the player defeats Bowser in the Moon Kingdom:
