Hammer Bros. made their debut in Super Mario Bros. as a common enemy, and has become a common enemy in later Mario games. They are Koopa Troopas with larger shells and helmets. They attack by throwing hammers at the player while jumping between surrounding platforms. Variants of Hammer Bros. include the Boomerang Bro, Fire Bro, and Ice Bro.

As an Assist Trophy and in The Subspace Emissary
The Hammer Bro debuted in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an Assist Trophy and an enemy in The Subspace Emissary.
As an Assist Trophy, when the Hammer Bro is summoned, they remain stationary in the area where they are summoned and attack by throwing hammers at the opponents. They occasionally jump, which can give their thrown hammers extra distance.
As an enemy in The Subspace Emissary, the Hammer Bro functions similarly as an Assist Trophy. They remain in one area, throw hammers at the players, and jump between platforms occasionally.
The Hammer Bro trophy can be obtained by using the Trophy Stand on the Hammer Bro in The Subspace Emissary.
- Hammer Bro
- A character who throws a seemingly endless stream of hammers. Hammer Bros. have also been known to jump every so often. Since they throw their hammers in a high arc, if you manage to get in close, the hammers can't hit you. Unlike Koopas and Buzzy Beetles, Hammer Bros. don't reduce to their shells when jumped on. As the name suggests, most Hammer Bros. are found in pairs.

As a background character
The Hammer Bros. appears as a background character in the Super Mario Maker stage riding a Lakitu cloud. Their appearance changes depending on the game style, matching their designs in Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros. U.
The Hammer Bros. return as an Assist Trophy and an enemy in Smash Run, reprising their behavior in Brawl.
As an Assist Trophy, like most of the on-stage Assist Trophies that are invulnerable to attack, the Hammer Bros. can be attacked and KO'd. When they are KO'd, they act as they do in Super Mario Bros., falling through the stage while upside down.
- Hammer Bro
- These elite trooper turtles usually appeared in pairs in Super Mario Bros., wearing helmets and chucking hammers at Mario. When summoned, they'll advance on the nearest opponent and lob hammers in a graceful arc. Sometimes they'll throw in a jump to mix things up.

- Hammer Bros. usually appear in pairs in Super Mario Bros. games. With helmets on heads and hammers in hand, Bowser's elite troops never leg it when Mario shows up. In this game, they appear solo, flinging hammers at the nearest target. They can also jump and throw, so stay sharp!

As an Assist Trophy

Hammer Bro also appears as an Advance-class support spirit.
Hammer Bro uses a Yoshi puppet fighter and is fought on the Golden Plains stage's Battlefield form. During the battle, the Hammer Bro appears as a hostile Assist Trophy when Yoshi reaches high damage.
