Helmet, known as Headache in the United Kingdom, is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Gold series on February 21, 1981. It is a single-screen single-player Game & Watch.

Tools fall from the sky, but there is a house on the right side of the screen. The player must guide the character towards the house, and dodge the tools until the door opens.

Helmet was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 2 for Game Boy Color. It was recreated as a DSiWare game that was released for Nintendo DSi on July 29, 2009 in Japan, on April 5, 2010 in the United States and April 9, 2010 in Europe; and for Nintendo 3DS on July 7, 2011 in Europe.

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Mr. Game & Watch has an attack which has him hit opponents with a helmet, referencing Helmet. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the stage Flat Zone is based on a number of Game & Watch games, including Helmet. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the stage Flat Zone X shifts between several layouts, one of which is based on Helmet.
