Kappa is a mythical beast, looks fearsome but not dangerous if properly handled. The source of his strength is the liquid in a cavity on top of his head. As Japanese legend believe, if a Kappa should approach you in a menacing manner, the right thing to do is to bow to him politely; as he, having the Japanese manners, will be sure to bow in return. Thus the liquid will pour out and it will render the Kappa powerless from losing his strength. Hence, as depicting here is a wise Kappa wearing a protective hat.
