Dorkly’s Team Head arguments are totally off.

The Toads wouldn’t wear a hat on top of their hat. Maybe culturally they don’t view their mushroom tops as hats. Maybe they’re a religious garb that they would never remove in public, so they wear the hats on top of their mushrooms.

A Bonnetter is possessing a Toad, and Bonnetters can’t possess people wearing hats. But are we sure the Bonnetter is actually possessing the Toad? Or is it just mooching a ride? Has it been confirmed that any Bonnetter besides Cappy has the power to possess people?

Toadette has pink mushroom hair. No other explanation for that one... 

There’s a Toad wearing headphones. The mushrooms could be really good at conducting acoustic vibrations. You can wear headphones above a hat and they still work.

I rest my case. Team Hat all the way.
