The Hammer Suit (alternatively Hammer Bros. Suit, Hammer Brothers Suit, or Hammer Brother Suit) is an item found in Super Mario Bros. 3 and its SNES and Game Boy Advance remakes. This item transforms Mario or Luigi into Hammer Mario or Hammer Luigi, which gives them the ability to throw hammers, like the Hammer Bros.
Hammers thrown by Hammer Mario or Hammer Luigi can defeat almost everything, including Bowser, but as with other power-ups, one hit from an enemy causes them to lose their power. They also gain a fireball-proof shell when ducking (like Buzzy Beetles, which they resemble), but cannot slide down hills. Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 adds a new utility to this suit: its hammers can break Gray Brick Blocks.
In the original Super Mario Bros. 3, retrieving a Hammer Suit will make Mario and Luigi's skin turn a darker, yellowish tone which resembles the appearance of Hammer Bros in this game, while no other power-ups in the game do so. On the map screen, in official artwork, and in remakes, Mario and Luigi's skin colors stay the same when they wear the suit.
