Hatapon is an important character in the Patapon series, as the leader of the group.
Hatapon is the flag bearer of Almighty, or the player. Hata means "Flag" or "Banner" in Japanese. He guards the Pata Drum with his life, and will only give it to Almighty, as the player is the only one who can use it. Hatapon has no combat abilities, and no defensive abilities either. Hatapon is the one who relays the Drum Beat of the player for the Patapons to listen and command. If Hatapon or the entire army were to die, a Mission Failure will occur and you will have to restart the stage all over. In the game, it states that Hatapon is the backbone of your army. He is possibly the main protagonist or just a deuteragonist.
