* Since ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'' features deities from various mythologies, [[NorseMythology Thor]] is included and carries his trademark Mjolnir. And he uses it A LOT, that his title 'God of Thunder' went underused, since he's not dealing with thunders but more about how much he can smack people with his Mjolnir.

Historically, blunt force weapons like maces and [[EpicFlail flails]] were far more effective against heavy armor than blades. Real European warhammers featured a beak-like spike on one side for piercing armor, and a flat hammerhead or set of blunt claws on the other for crushing helmets. They bear little resemblance to the massive sledgehammers often featured in various fantasy games, and aren't seen as frequently in fiction. As armor became heavier and more widespread, the use of warhammers rose as well. It is fairly common for characters who use sledgehammer-types as their weapon of choice to be black, probably due to the influence of American folk hero John Henry & African demigod Makoma.

* Gray's Ice Make Hammer in ''Manga/FairyTail.
* The Gundam Gusion in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' has one about three times the size of its head. And it has thrusters on each corner to maximize the impact on any target. Considering the [[KineticWeaponsAreBetter beam weaponry-devoid]] setting of the story, it's considered a very lethal weapon in the right hands.
