After I started reading xkcd but before I began visiting this wiki, I addressed this character as Hat Guy in discussion with friends, and in my own head. But, when I first visited this site, I started calling him Black Hat, because that is how he is named here. However, as seen in the title text of comic #493, Actuarial, he is addressed as Hat guy. This begs my question, for which I have no answer, what do we call this character?

I will start this page with a (perhaps unique) assumption I have formulated about Black Hat and Danish. It is that I can't help hearing them with an affected British accent. That is to say, I do not consider the British to be Black Hat and Danish to be British, but there is a stereotype Stateside that the British are snooty and consider themselves superior to us "silly Americans", and that is something the comic's Machiavells would certainly pick up on.

Didn't look like a porkpie hat until Season 1 of Breaking Bad

The hat in the early comics, 2005-2007, looks like a top hat. Then sometime in season 1 of Breaking Bad, Walter White starts wearing a black pork pie hat -- maybe in the final episode, May 2008, and after that XKCD's black hat has flattened out to a pork pie style. Coincidence? --199.27.129.167 23:03, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Should he really be called "Black Hat"? After I started reading xkcd but before I began visiting this wiki, I addressed this character as Hat Guy in discussion with friends, and in my own head.
