The sledgehammer (also known as the hammer or giant hammer) is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. This heavy mid-level weapon is usually reserved for warriors and other physically powerful characters.

Characteristics[]

The sledgehammer has had a few different designs over the years. Its original design is a maul with a large, rectangular head with five sharp spikes and a handle long enough for the hammer to be wielded in two hands. The handle has a grip at the base and a blue and bronze section near the top attached to the head. When the hammer reappeared in Dragon Quest VII, the sledgehammer was now short enough to be wielded with one hand, had a brown leather grip on its handle, and had more spikes on the head and the handle. In Dragon Quest VIII, the hammer's design had changed completely. Once again, the sledgehammer could be wielded in one hand. The head has an unusual bell-like shape and has many spikes decorating it. The handle has a blue grip and gold edges decorate the head and the edges of the hammer's grip. Both Dragon Quest IX and X returned to the design featured in the seventh game.
