Sledge Bros. (or Sledge Brothers) are large overweight versions of Hammer Bros. that throw sledge hammers instead of regular ones. They can create small earthquakes as well.
They are subspecies of Hammer Bros. They throw large sledge hammers instead of normal hammers and they can create small earthquakes by jumping which can stun the player.
Super Mario Bros. 3
In Super Mario Bros. 3, Sledge Bros. can create small earthquakes to disorientate Mario; it stops Mario or Luigi from moving, allowing it to continue to throw its hammers in succession. Mario or Luigi must jump as soon as it hits the ground (after it jumps) to maintain posture. Encountered first on World 4-Giant Land.
