Bow Kid is the second player character of A Hat in Time, working alongside Hat Kid to collect the Time Pieces and restore power to the spaceship to return home.

She was added in the Co-Op DLC on September 13, 2018. Her name was confirmed by A Hat in Time's twitter.[1]



Bow Kid appears as a humanoid alien child who has a darker skin tone and deeper brown hair than Hat Kid, as well as having purple eyes. She wears a green button-up coat and white undershirt, a blue skirt, and black boots with blue trim.

Similar to Hat Kid, she is able to wear many kinds of Hats throughout her adventure, though her default hat is her large blue bow, which functions exactly like Hat Kid's large purple Hat.

Her voice lines are similar to Hat Kid's, using the same lines as her for certain situations, but having those line's pitch-shifted downward, giving her a lower tone overall.


Given the way she was implemented to the game, Bow Kid is very similar in terms of personality to Hat Kid, being an often energetic, childish, and sometimes mischievous protagonist.


  • When entering a mission with Bow Kid, the mission splash screen will have a small picture of her in the top right corner. Some of these pictures are used in multiple acts while others are used for only one.
  • As of the Nyakuza Metro DLC release, players can play through the entire game as Bow Kid. If they have completed the game as Hat Kid and downloaded the Seal The Deal and Nyakuza Metro DLC, they can choose to start a new save file as Bow Kid.
  • Bow Kid may be famous in Nyakuza Metro, as there are several small stands that appears to be Bow Kid related magazines, and have her cat emblem on them. This may be some sort of joke or reference to Bow Kid's apparent love of cats.
  • In Picture Perfect, whenever a moon penguin takes your picture a doodle of Bow Kid will be in the corner if co-op is activated.
