The Worn-Out Hammer is an attack in Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Paper Mario: Color Splash. It is a hammer counterpart to the Worn-Out Jump, and is one of the weakest attacks in the game.


Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

“Strikes foes with a weak whack.”
In-game description

In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Worn-Out Hammer stickers can be found commonly in World 1. It appears as a hammer with a bandage over it on a pale brown background and has a one-star attack power rating. It sells for 1 coin.

As a sticker, it takes up 1 square in Mario's Album. When it is used in a battle, Mario hits an enemy with a hammer. With good timing of the A Button press, Mario deals additional damage, and the splash damages nearby enemies as well. An Excellent hit does 6 damage to the first enemy. Mario cannot use the Worn-Out Hammer against flying enemies.

The Worn-Out Hammer can be placed into the Sticker Museum as #28, alongside other Hammer-based stickers.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

In Paper Mario: Color Splash, the Worn-Out Hammer serves the same function as before. It can be found on Ruddy Road, and from Prize Pipe Paths and the Battle Spin. It sells for 1 coin.

An icon appears when the Worn-Out Hammer is used in battle. When timed properly with the A Button button, it deals more damage.

In the Prisma Museum, the Worn-Out Hammer is the 25th entry of the Basic Card Gallery. The Worn-Out Hammer x3 and Worn-Out Hammer x5 allow Mario to use multiple Worn-Out Hammers in a row with a single card.
