    It got removed because of copyright issues.

    They will never add it back because if they do, they will probably end up having to close the game. 1 hat < game. The game is much better than one hat.

    I always wore that hat when it was in the game. And as good as it was, it will never be added back in due to copyright issues.

    Your poll gives use NO answer to that. They removed Nyan Hat due to copyright. If sethmumu kept it even if they were warned, they'd get sued and the game would get shut down

    They could easily use it with fair-use by changing the pop-tart looking body into rainbow colors and changing the pixel art a little bit. they would also have to change the name into rainbow cat or something.
    Same thing goes with Mario (and other copyright/trademarked things) items. You could remove the "m" on Mario's red hat and the suit would be legal to use within Growtopia since it's just a guy with a mustache and red overalls.

    The trademark for the Nyan Cat is abandoned, it could be easily added back in to the game.

    Nah not really.
    Copyrights don't work that way. It actually depends on the judge if a case is filed in the court.

    changing the pixel art a little bit isn't fair use or a parody, it's just a copy, and they aren't doing news or research.

    plus it could still be put in the game since the trademark is dead.

    Still depends on the court judge.

    It's copyrighted. IDK if they got the trademark already. Or if it already expired.
    But they can't still put it in the game because it's copyrighted.
