First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Hammer (Japanese: ハンマー Hammer) is an axe-type weapon which was introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and has appeared in every game except one since Thracia 776 (skipping only Echoes: Shadows of Valentia). It is a heavy polearm designed to fight heavily armored units, and is very effective against Knights, Generals and similar classes. However, it is also very heavy even compared to other axes, slowing down its wielder prior to the removal of weight in New Mystery of the Emblem, and its accuracy is poor.
