Quake Hammer is a badge in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.


In Paper Mario, it is found at Mt. Rugged, on a ledge reachable with Parakarry. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it is found in Boggly Woods, in a red ? Block near Flurrie's house, can be bought from Pianta Parlor for sixty-seven Pianta Tokens after getting the Platinum Card, and rarely dropped by Parabuzzies, Spiky Parabuzzies, Clefts, and Moon Clefts. If equipped by Mario, he gains the ability to use the Quake Hammer move using his hammer for two FP (three in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door). Using the attack, it releases a shockwave that damages all enemies on the ground and on the ceiling while leaving flying ones unaffected. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, this will cause parts of the stage to topple, potentially damaging the participants in the battle.

In Paper Mario, the move has stronger variants in the form of Power Quake and Mega Quake; in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Mario can achieve the same effect by equipping additional copies of the badge, each increasing the power of the Quake Hammer by two and doubling its FP cost.

Provided that the action command is executed properly, Quake Hammer includes effects such as:

Merluvlee's prediction in Paper Mario[edit]

  • "I see...a Quake Hammer Badge. You spot it on a ledge above a cliff road on Mt. Rugged. A Paratroopa gives you a lift from the ledge where you retrieved one of his letters."
