Shiny Hammers are weapons that first appear in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are stronger, shinier variants of regular Hammers.


Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

A Shiny Hammer sticker in Paper Mario: Sticker Star

In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, the Shiny Hammer sticker has a three-star attack power and is the third strongest sticker in the Hammer sticker series. They are fairly common to find. They are mostly found in Water's Edge Way and Drybake Desert, and can be bought at Shaved-Ice Cave and Rumble Volcano for 10 coins and sold for 5 coins.

In addition, Mario can paperize and stick a Shiny Jump in certain spots for the chance to upgrade it into a Shiny Hammer. Sticking a Shiny Hammer can cause it to turn into a Flashy Hammer, Shiny Jump, Shiny Eekhammer, or a combination of a Jump, Shiny Jump, and Flashy Hammer stickers.

It can be placed into the Sticker Museum as #30, alongside the other Hammer and Slaphammer stickers.

Paper Mario: The Origami King[edit]

In Paper Mario: The Origami King, Shiny Hammers can be bought at Toad Town for 720 coins. They first appear in Earth Vellumental Temple, then later at the Water Vellumental Shrine. In battle, they deal eleven to twenty four damage.
