The Super Hammer is a move in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door unlocked when Podler gives Mario the Super Hammer in Chapter 3. When used, Mario twists himself up and then swings his hammer while spinning, which can be used to destroy Big Yellow Blocks. On the field, it is performed by holding down B Button, rotating the Control Stick a number of times, and then releasing B Button.

The Super Hammer move can also be used in battle, where it functions similarly to Spin Smash from Paper Mario. It costs 2 FP and allows Mario to smack the front enemy into any enemies located behind it, dealing 1 damage to each of them and ignoring the enemy's defense as well as any modifiers to Mario's attack damage. Its action command is similar to the regular Hammer action command, but six dots light up before the Star, requiring a slightly longer wait before releasing the Control Stick. It can also be used to get the First Strike on enemies, which allows Mario to use the move without spending FP.
