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.

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.

  • Was it a Bowser Jr. with wings in a clown car?

  • @Pyritie I don't believe so.

  • @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.
