Hamma Jamma, also known simply as Hamma, is a Hammer Bro who fights in the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is a major league fighter and a member of the team Hamma, Bamma, and Flare. He and his teammates are ranked 3rd in the Glitz Pit.

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 talks 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 'hood'. 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.

Log Well - known for their vicious and relentless hammer jobs, Hammer Bros. have a reputation as one of Mario's toughest enemies...
Tattle That's a Hammer Bro. You know him. He throws hammers. Hence the name. Max HP is 7, Attack is 4, and Defense is 1. 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!

Field Tattle[edit]

  • "That's Hamma Jamma. He must be one of the strongest major-leaguers. He's got a hammer, like you do. I think that hammer is REALLY important to him."
