** The ''VideoGame/{{IceClimber}}s'' both wield mallets to break ice (and the heads of their foes in ''Smash Bros'').
** Mr. Game and Watch uses them for his downward smash attack and Judgement special. In the case of the former, it actually knocks foes farther if the hammer hits ''near'' them as opposed to hitting them directly, though a direct hit launches foes at a low angle that can be difficult to recover from.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series:
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' features warhammers that range from small and wimpy (the ones made of chitin), to medium (the [[ShoutOut b&hammer]]), to {{Infinity Plus One|Sword}} (the Daedric and the Sixth House Bell Hammers).
** Special mention goes to Stendarr's Hammer in Mournhold's museum, in the ''Tribunal'' expansion. While not practical for the player to wield, that's still a ''really'' big hammer.
** See also Volendrung, which has appeared in every single game in the series. A huge warhammer forged by the Dwemer (called "dwarves" in world... by the giants; their stature was on par with any other man or mer) and blessed by the Daedric Prince of Pariahs, Malacath, in its Skyrim incarnation it has the ability to absorb its victims' Stamina, allowing its wielder to abuse Power Attacks.

In addition to dealing considerable damage, it has variously been enchanted to paralyze those it strikes as well as drain their strength and stamina.

* There's a reason it's called ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', you know. The titular weapon is named ''Ghal Maraz'' (Dwarf for "skull-splitter") and was wielded by Sigmar Heldenhammer, the Empire's founder-turned-god with a hammer for a holy symbol. Stat-wise it's one of the nastiest weapons in the game. The Dwarfs additionally favor hammers as much as they do axes. Incidentally, Heldenhammer is German for "Hero-hammer," which was ''Warhammer'''s nickname during the character-centric 4th and 5th Editions.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** Thunder Hammers, though cumbersome, are wrapped in an energy field that delivers an electro-sonic shockwave with every impact, stunning anything hardy enough to survive a blow from them. The [[TabletopGame/{{Inquisitor}} Inquisition's]] Ordo Malleus ("order of the hammer") makes use of [[HolyHandGrenade consecrated]] variants when they go out DemonSlaying. Among the most famous examples is [[TheJuggernaut Captain Lysander's]] [[AncestralWeapon Fist of Dorn]], finely crafted and passed down through the mightiest of Imperial Fists commanders.
** The Salamanders chapter of Space Marines are known to prefer Thunder Hammers along with flamers and melta weapons, as it helps to reinforce forging and smithing motifs.
** Clan Raukaan of the Iron Hands possess the Mindforger, which works similarly to a Force Thunder Hammer although it's not really one.
** [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks]] being [[CrazyAwesome Orks]], their Tankbustas' "tankhammers" are nothing more than rockets on long sticks they bludgeon enemy armor with. Given their [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy ranged accuracy]], this is a more reliable way for them to get tank kills.
** In the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' novels, Eidolon of the Emperor's children wields a big-ass hammer.
** Speaking of the Emperor's Children, their primarch Fulgrim created one named Forgebreaker, which was used by three primarchs.
** Naturally, the ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' [[RealTimeStrategy RTSes]] include thunder hammers; the main character gets a Daemonhammer (the aforementioned consecrated variant) in the first game, and in the sequel thunder hammers are the best melee weapons in the game. Incidentally, before ''Dawn of War'', there was no rules-applicable way for Space Marines (outside of [[ArmorOfInvincibility Tactical Dreadnought Armor]]) to wield thunderhammers. After ''Dawn of War'' made it [[RuleOfCool look cool]], future editions [[RetCanon expanded rules to include that option]].

* The ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series has the Hammer as a Axe-type weapon, which is effective against armored enemies such as Knights and their promotion classes. Using a hammer in the fight with the [[spoiler: [[ImplacableMan Black Knight]]]] in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' is [[OutsideTheBoxTactic an easy way to win the fight.]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity +1 Axe]] Aurgelmir is a big-ass hammer. You get it in a chest late in ''Revelation'', while in ''Conquest'' it can be pried out of Hans' cold dead hands.

* Warhammers are common weapons in ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', but the real standout is the ''gavel'' carried by Tunon, Archon of Law. It's as tall as he is (and he is taller than any human character) and it makes a [[HellIsThatNoise hellish keening noise]] when he slams it down to dismiss supplicants or announce decisions.
