If we're talking about anime characters with headbands, the first thing that comes to mind is Naruto's, but there are plenty of other famous anime accessories.
In the eyes of the audience, an accessory or item does not have to be a MacGuffin to be memorable and symbolic, and several popular anime accessories are little more than something to wear or carry, even if they have sentimental importance.
