The Hammer Suit power-up is a suit which first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, and is one of the most rare suits in Super Mario Bros. 3.


As Hammer Mario, Mario can throw hammers, which can damage certain enemies, like Boos, which cannot normally be attacked. The hammers, unlike fireballs, fly in a parabolic arc. This makes it sometimes difficult to aim the attack, but it usually does not present much of a problem. Mario cannot slide on slopes while wearing the Hammer Suit. The Hammer Suit is one of the two power-ups in Super Mario Bros. 3 that can defeat Bowser without baiting him into falling through the floor; the second being the Fire Flower.
