The regular Hammer, the Super Hammer, and the Ultra Hammer from the Paper Mario series.Hammers are items commonly used as weapons throughout the Mario series. They first appeared in Donkey Kong, in which they were used to smash Barrels and enemies. Hammers are usually thrown by the Hammer Bros. and other enemies. However, Mario and Luigi, the heroes of the Mushroom Kingdom, have been known to effectively wield Hammers in combat. In the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi games, Hammer attacks are used as a counterpart to Jump attacks. Some enemies cannot be damaged by Jump attacks, requiring the Mario Bros. to use their Hammers instead.
