The Propeller Hat is a wearable hat in Platform Racing 2 and Platform Racing 3 that causes different effects depending on the game.

Platform Racing 2

The hat was added slightly over a week after the game's release on 2008-05-13.[1] It is nearly an exact copy of the EXP Hat, with the only differences being that it's horizontally flipped and has a rotating propeller blade at the top.

Ability

Holding the up arrow key while in midair causes the player to fall slower, allowing them to cross larger gaps they could not otherwise.

Obtainability

The Propeller Hat is available as the prize of Hat Factory in the original campaign and Volcanic Inferno in the speed campaign. Unlike other prizes, the hat is given to every player who finishes instead of only the winner. The hat also effectively replaced the EXP Hat as Hat Factory's prize when it was released.[2]

Platform Racing 3

Returning as one of the first hats designed for the game, the Propeller Hat features an entirely new look more accurately resembling its real life counterpart as the EXP Hat is now similar to its previous appearance. Unlike PR2, the propeller does not spin at any point.

Ability

Users wearing the hat will be given an extra boost when they super jump, increasing their overall height. This makes the it the only returning hat to have its ability completely altered, with the Parasol Hat serving its original purpose.

Obtainability

Like the EXP, Crown and Cowboy hats, the Propeller Hat was never officially released.
