New Super Mario Bros. 2
Hammer Bros, Boomerang Bros or Fire Bros will become Gold Bros when the player touches a Gold Ring. Unlike Hammer Bros, Gold Bros throw coins rather than hammers. They will only hurt the player if direct contact is made with it from above or the side. Several Hammer Bro variants can be similarly turned into gold and will behave the same way.
