The Hammer Bro., or Hammer Brother, is a common enemy found in the Super Mario series.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A Hammer Bro. appears in Brawl as a helper which can be released from an Assist Trophy. It throws its famous hammers at its enemies and is invulnerable. It also appears as a common enemy in Adventure Mode, where it acts similar to its Assist Trophy role but can be hit by attacks and defeated. It appears as both a collectible trophy and sticker.

Trophy Description

Brawl Trophy

A character who throws a seemingly endless stream of hammers. Hammer Bros. have also been known to jump every so often. Since they throw their hammers in a high arc, if you manage to get in close, the hammers can't hit you. Unlike Koopas and Buzzy Beetles, Hammer Bros. don't reduce to their shells when jumped on. As the name suggests, most Hammer Bros. are found in pairs.

Trophy Description

These elite trooper turtle usually appeared in pairs in Super Mario Bros., wearing helmets and chucking hammers at Mario. When summoned, they'll advance on the nearest opponent and lob hammers in a graceful arc. Sometimes they'll throw in a jump to mix things up.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Hammer Bro. returns as one of the assist trophies the player can summon. Like in previous games, they throw around their hammers while occasionally jumping, and after a short while, disappear. Like most other Assist Trophies in the game, he can be attacked and defeated by other fighters for extra score in Time Battle.

Trivia

  • All the Subspace Emissary stages the Hammer Bro. appears in have "The" in the name.
  • Hammer Bro. is one of only four Assist Trophies to appear as a common enemy in Smash Run, the others being Starman, and Chain Chomp, and Metroid.
