Crown redirects here. For the Mercury Adept in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn whose Japanese name is Crown, see Rief.

Head armor in the Golden Sun series belong to multiple classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to several classes of head armor - Hat, Cap, Crown, Hood, and Mask - that are functionally identical because they can be equipped by all party members and are only limited in certain cases by what gender of Adept can equip it.

All basic headgear that are counted as "common" are headgear that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All basic headgear that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger pieces that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one headgear can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each headgear are quite reliable indicators of how good each piece of equipment is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A head item that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other head item even if the other head item has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive head item. Therefore, the following headgear is all arranged by price. Also, they are divided into groups based on what game they first appear in. Keep in mind that many of these pieces of headgear continue to be used in later games, even if they are not listed under that game's list of headgear.
