Hamma Jamma[edit]

Hamma Jamma.

Hamma Jamma, also known simply as Hamma, is a Hammer Bro. that fights in the Glitz Pit alongside Bamma, a Boomerang Bro., and Flare, a Fire Bro.

As Mario rises through the ranks of the major league, Hamma Jamma becomes friendly towards him, often telling him about his personal life. Hamma Jamma talk about his grandfather, and it is implied that Mario has actually met him at one point, as he has apparently occupied World 7-1 as his 'turf'. Other family members are also mentioned, such as his father, who is the only known Business Bro. In battle, he fights using his hammer, which is his most prized possession, as it was supposedly handed down to him by his grandfather.

Tattle Log and Statistics[edit]

“That's a Hammer Bro. You know him. He throws hammers. Hence the name. When his HP drops and he thinks he's in trouble, he'll toss a hammer barrage. Nothing about these guys has changed: they're tough as ever, so brace yourself! Dang! This book always skips the important stuff! How do they carry endless hammers?”
