Hello everybody and welcome back to another Countdown Post of mine, continuing with the Weapons on a Stick theme. Now, shall we say that if we switch the blade on that stick into a GIANT mass of weight… What do we get? Hammers, that’s what.
In the beginning, hammers were invented to construct structures. Mostly by pounding nails to woods or nails or anything. At times, people also use it to construct weapons, that’s what blacksmiths do. It just happens that the bigger the hammer becomes, the more destructive it becomes, sometimes even becoming a reverse of its original purpose, a bludgeon weapon to either demolish structures, or just bash someone’s skull, either breaking them, or knocking them away for a very long distance. It’s also a popular weapon for clerics who abhor steel sharp weapons… and it’s also a popular weapon for anime girls who tends to get annoyed with their male friends.
But we’re not gonna talk about anime.
The hammers tend to be a powerful weapon, slow at swing, but packs a massive weight in each blows. And so, within this list, 10 Experts of Hammers in video game history shall be listed and we will see who stands in the top to put the mightiest hammer down there is. As usual, the two main rules apply: Only one character per franchise, and only from the games I played. And only from things originating from video games. I swear to God, if anime-origin characters can be put in this list, I would’ve happily put in the GaoGaiGar in, due to the massive Goldion Hammer or Goldion Crusher, and it was showcased in Super Robot Wars! But alas, rules are rules.
So let’s not wait any longer. It’s hammer ti– Wait, no, I don’t say that. I’ll reveal why later. Onward to the countdown then!
