BattleEdit

It can be a minor nuisance as it can temporarily leave the battlefield for a short time. While invisible it cannot be targeted, so the player must be careful not to attack, to avoid hitting to their own party members. Although Hammer Blaster has eight attacks, it will only ever use two of them under normal circumstances; Hammer Blaster will never use the moves Zip Hammer, Zip Confu, Flying Hammer, Flying Muddle, Flying Zip, and Flying Zip Confu. It has Hammer Attack as standard physical attack. Also it will use Muyddle Mallet which inflict minor damage and may confuse a character.

StrategyEdit

Hammer Blasters can be easily defeated with Lightning attacks.

NotesEdit

  • Vanish, Appear and (Report) are animations, the latter of which is its death animation.
  • While Hammer Blaster is invisible, it cannot be targeted, but its AI script will continue to run.
  • The purpose of Hammer Blaster turning off its death handling upon death is because it has a different death animation to normal enemies.
