* In the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' {{verse}} by Steven Erikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont, the [[PhysicalGod Ascendant]] Caladan Brood wields a great hammer so {{badass}} that it has the power to awaken the sleeping earth goddess Burn (whose body is apparently the earth itself). No one wants Brood to Drop The Hammer any time soon...

* [[IronKingdoms Warmachine]] occasionally involves [[HumongousMecha giant]] [[{{steampunk}} steam and]] [[{{magitek}} magic]] powered robots with even bigger hammers. The aptly named Hammersmith even dual wields them.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8506661/11/ Squad 7 and their Accidental Instructor]]'', Sakura takes to using a warhammer which, combined with her SuperStrength, causes her to hit hard enough that the ''shockwave'' of a missed attack will send people flying.

** ComicBook/{{Loki}} once had the hammer Stormcaster[[note]]The hammer was originally unnamed, and in the issue of ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' it was featured in, [[DependingOnTheWriter it was called Stormbringer]][[/note]] made for a [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered]] ComicBook/{{Storm}}, whom he attempted to manipulate to take Thor's place in Asgard. Though she ultimately rejected his offer, an alternate version who did stay in Asgard would become part of the Thor Corps.

* 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.

Used by TheBigGuy, the MightyGlacier, and the CuteBruiser. Also a favorite of [[TheMedic clerics]] in HighFantasy settings, smashing someone's head in with a hammer often lets them get around the "[[TechnicalPacifist no spilling of blood]]" rule enacted by their gods. [[note]] Blunt damage can easily cause bleeding. Imagine breaking a bone with a hammer: there '''will''' be blood involved.[[/note]]

* [[VideoGame/MystIIIExile Saavedro's hammer.]] Ask any ''Myst'' fan worth their salt, and they'll tell you that while dear old Saavy's hammer might not be the [[{{BFS}} biggest]] or most {{Badass}}, it can still inspire some serious skull-smashing terror.

* WhateleyUniverse examples: the superpowered mutant Sledge wields a big sledgehammer, and as fits the trope, is a ScaryBlackMan. Donner is Swedish, has trouble with English, and wields a warhammer much like Thor, right down to the MarvelComics trick of hurling it (well, using Energizers powers to move it through the air) and letting it pull him after.
