I played a level online where it looked like Bowser Jr. threw hammers. I know Bowser does this in the original game.

I tried dragging a Hammer Bros. onto them, but this just replaces them with the Hammer Bros.

How do you make them throw hammers?

Side note: I know putting Bowser Jr. into the Koopa Clown Car makes him throw shells... and putting Bowser into the Koopa Clown Car makes him throw Bob-Ombs.

  • Just saw Bowser Jr. throwing hammers... and Cheep-Cheeps from the Koopa Clown Car in another level. No idea how he's doing it. – Powerlord Sep 13 '15 at 22:35

According to this video, adding wings to Bowser Jr. causes him to throw hammers. Bowser himself doesn't seem to have a way to do this; you'll have to stack a source of hammers on top of him or something.

  • Hmm, I swear I've seen Bowser Jr. do it from within a Clown Car as well, but the level this was in had tons of enemies in Clown Cars, so theoretically I could have seen a Hammer Bros. doing it. It was weird, because it was thrown in two directions at once like Bowser Jr. does with shells. – Powerlord Sep 14 '15 at 1:52
  • Was it a Bowser Jr. with wings in a clown car? – Pyritie Sep 14 '15 at 9:39
  • @Pyritie I don't believe so. – Powerlord Sep 14 '15 at 17:01
  • @Pyritie It appears that a Bowser Jr. with Wings will throw hammers if he's in a Clown Car as well, although not that often. It may take time (or two hits) before he starts doing it, just like it does for fireballs. – Powerlord Sep 17 '15 at 14:37
