Hammer (Wario Land 4)
|Wario Land 4 (2001)
The hammer, or mallet, is an enemy in Wario Land 4. It appears exclusively in the final battle against the Golden Diva, being the fourth of the five creatures that she produces in an attempt to harm Wario. When the hammer is first thrown down by the Golden Diva, it has spikes along the sides, which will cause damage to Wario if they are to make contact. The spikes will disappear shortly after hitting the ground, and Wario can then pick it up and throw it upwards. If the hammer falls back on top of Wario's head, it will have the same effect as a Menhanmā, transforming him into Bouncy Wario. While he is bouncing like a spring, Wario can press to launch himself upward. If he hits the Diva's face, it will cause her damage and counter her attack.

I dodged it, but wondered if being a spring would be a good plan at this point. I decided it was, so I threw the hammer into the air, ducked down, and waited for it to hit me. I was instantly turned into a spring, and I sprung up into her stomach as soon as she was over me."
