** Thor used to have a debilitating weakness: if he let go of his hammer for more than a minute, he turns into doctor Don Blake, with a crippled leg and a limp (and presumably a dry wit and acid tongue), and the hammer turns into a flimsy walking stick. Essentially, Series/{{House}}. Fortunately, this was removed (after Odin felt that Thor had earned it), thus making Thor practically invincible.

* ''VideoGame/ProjectZomboid'' lets you fight with a hammer: an ordinary hardware-store clawhammer. From among the large variety of [[ImprovisedWeapon Improvised Weapons]], it's not a terrible choice in a pinch. Hammers lack reach, which is important against packs of zombies, and they don't hit hard. On the plus side, they are durable, abundant, and light. Besides, you'll often find yourself carrying one anyway—to use as a hammer. There are also sledgehammers, much rarer, and a prize to find. You'll want one because it can demolish existing walls (and about anything else), providing the only way inside some buildings. As a weapon, it's AwesomeButImpractical. A sledgehammer is every bit as heavy and slow as a normal hammer isn't, and if you have to bash more than one head a time, it will quickly wear you out.
* The role of the hammer is played in ''VideoGame/KillingFloor2'' by the [[CloseRangeCombatant Berserker's]] "Pulverizer". At first glance, it looks and acts like a standard sledgehammer. SecondaryFire strikes with the other side of the head, which has a pressure-triggered powder-actuated nail gun built into it. The effect is a mini-explosion that can kill multiple [[{{Mook}} Mooks]] with its SplashDamage.

* 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 [[KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter beam weaponry-devoid]] setting of the story, it's considered a very lethal weapon in the right hands. The Barbatos also carries a mace, which Mikazuki pulls it in full effect, serving as both melee weapon ''and'' ranged projectile, and it has an in-built PileBunker. After losing the mace, Mika uses a [[WrenchWhack Wrench Mace]] for combat, and the said Wrench Mace was supposed to be [[ImprobableWeaponUser a tool for repairing Mobile Suits]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
