Hammers are ghosts in Luigi's Mansion 3. They are quite similar to Slammers from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, as they are red, large, and beefy, and even have similar names and are shaped quite similarly. They have square heads and attack by charging toward Luigi or Gooigi and hammering the floor, hence "Hammer". Like Slammers, they tend to act more brawny than intelligent. Hammers have 200 HP and two tails, allowing both Luigi and Gooigi to vacuum them at the same time. Whenever they charge, they will cover their eyes with their arms, rendering them immune to the flash bulb for the attack. When they are stunned using the Strobulb, they will barely move or take damage unless Luigi or Gooigi moves behind them while they are stunned and then suck them up.

The first Hammer in the game appears on the third floor, the Hotel Shops. It uses a water sprinkler above to melt Gooigi and speeds up the escalators.

Like Goobs, Hammers work lots of odd jobs at The Last Resort, but are easily angered.

The end of the game reveals the Hammers were being brainwashed by King Boo's crown gem, as they and the other ghosts quickly regain their senses and become friendly once the gem vanishes from Luigi's hands as they were about to attack him. Among the rest of the standard ghosts in the game (save for Trappers), Hammers are seen working with the protagonists to rebuild the fallen hotel through a series of pictures throughout the closing credits, as well as the cinematic immediately preceding the credits sequence itself. The Hammer was also shown to be slightly dim-witted in his base personality, as when handed a helmet by Professor Gadd when preparing them to work on restoring the hotel, the Hammer mistook it for a snack and ate it, much to the other ghosts' embarrassment.




Themed variants[edit]

Each variant has 300 HP instead of 200. Otherwise, they are the same as regular Hammers; the only difference is the design and clothing, which does not affect their powers. This list does not include rare variants of Hammers with special powers and/or varying HP.


Tutankhammers are Hammers that are based on mummies, like Agoobises. Their name is based on that of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. They appear in ScareScraper floors based on the Tomb Suites.


Slabhammers are Hammers based on slabs from the Middle Ages. They appear in ScareScraper floors based on Castle MacFrights.

Disco Hammer[edit]

Disco Hammers are Hammers resembling disco balls. They are only found in Dance Hall-inspired floors in ScareScraper.

Hammersaurus Rex[edit]

Hammersaurus Rexes are Hammers resembling Tyrannosaurus rex, hence their name. They are found in ScareScraper floors based on the Unnatural History Museum.
