The Hammer Suit power-up is a suit which first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, and is the rarest suit 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. The Hammer Suit is also one of the only two power-ups in SMB3 that is able to defeat Bowser without having to trick him into falling into the floor; the second being the Fire Flower. Mario cannot slide in the Hammer Suit.
