A 2009 physics-based action game (previously known as ''Hammerfall'') made by Konstantin Koshutin, ''Hammerfight'' follows a young member of the House of Gaiar as he begins his training as a Rider--those who can pilot flying machines, especially for the purpose of war. The young Gaiar has many life-changing ordeals ahead of him--starting with TheEmpire declaring a war of extermination on the his people in order to fulfill an ancient oath by Cyrus Arguseed ...

* FeaturelessProtagonist: Aside from the one or two times his tiny sprite is seen outside of a machine, we're never shown what the young Gaiar looks like. This is actually played to its logical conclusion in one ending: [[spoiler: if the Gaiar allies with Seraph, the narrator will tell you that although he's restored the House of Gaiar, "his name will not be preserved in history."]]
* FogOfDoom / OminousFog: Toward the end of the game, you will learn that there is a massive wall of fog advancing over the Helaat. The emperor Bharat-al-Maravi says that every town and village enveloped by the fog soon becomes overwhelmed by the beasts of firmament. Although he tells you he wants to use the three Singing Stones held by each of the houses to fight against this fog, [[spoiler: Seraph]] claims the Emperor is instead looking to use them as a means of escaping this world before the fog claims everything.

* JustifiedTitle: When you first look at the name "Hammerfight," it's easy to assume the name just refers to the physics-based bludgeoning of opponents you can do with hammers and other blunt weapons.

* ActionBomb: Some enemies will explode when destroyed. The first of these types of enemies are introduced during an escort mission, where you need to keep them away from the person you're escorting and take them out with a precise cut to the head. Later ones tend to [[TakingYouWithMe taunt you into killing them]] when they are severely damaged (where anyone else, usually, would just surrender).

Other Riders will usually beg you to spare them in this state--if you oblige *these* Riders and kill them, they'll explode and do considerable damage to you.



* AsTheGoodBookSays: Verses from Literature/TheBible are used as some of the {{Epigraph}}s in-game, usually without the verse number. Of particular note, one splash screen has a quote from Ephesians 4:26--"In your anger do not sin; do not let the sun go down while you are still angry." This appears to [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall lean on the fourth wall]] given it works as an admonishment of several vengeance-driven characters throughout the story, as well as the player, given the game's reputation for being NintendoHard.



* BilingualBonus: Many of the ranks and titles found in the setting are Turkic or Mongolian (sometimes Arabian) in origin. For example, Batyr is Turkic for "hero" or "brave man" while Tarkhan was a common title among Central Asian peoples that often implied a commander of a regiment-sized unit. Similarly, Noyan comes from feudal Mongolia and, in a military context, meant a commander of anywhere between a thousand and ten thousand soldiers.



* BulletTime: Land a particularly good strike, and you get a few seconds of slow-motion, during which you can move a whole lot faster than anyone else. It does, however, turn into a bit of a DeathOrGloryAttack, depending on the situation, as bullet-time physics get even wonkier than usual, so flying into something will ''wreck'' you, but you can also get some absolutely devastating momentum on your weapon, which can then be given to the nearest enemy to make him fly ''through'' the wall, if he doesn't just explode outright from sheer damage. [[note]][[GoodBadBugs It is not unheard of for this system to cause everything to glitch out, potentially breaking the game and killing you... or killing everything on the screen. It is entirely possible to kill three riders with ''one hit, directed at only one of them'' by complete accident with that.[[/note]]

** Red - Ruby: When charged up and used to strike an enemy with great force, a ruby will restore some of your flying machine's health. One of the most common - and by far the most useful[[note]]to GameBreaker levels[[/note]] - singing stones at your disposal.
** Orange - Topaz: When fully charged, they burst into flame for a few seconds. Wooden objects and enemies will be set on fire if struck, dealing damage over time. Also quite useful in the dark, since they make a lot of light.
** Green - Emerald: The other non-elemental singing stone, Emeralds let the wielder temporarily ''phase'' through attacks. Movement is slower, and your weapon is phased as well, making attacking impossible. The page image shows an enemy phasing to avoid the player's attack. [[CaptainObvious Dephasing inside a weapon will reduce your health, and de-phasing with your weapon inside someone else will do pretty much the exact same to them.]]
** Blue - Sapphire: The rarest of the lot (on par with Emeralds) but quite effective. If they strike an enemy weapon when charged, they'll coat it in ice crystals, freezing it. Frozen weapons and armour are made more brittle, and therefore, are [[BreakableWeapons much easier to break]].
** Purple - Amethyst: Terrifyingly effective against metallic enemies, these unleash vicious electrical shocks. If fully charged, any enemies that get too close to the gem will be shocked ''without'' releasing the main charge. Additionally, striking an enemy with a fully charged Amethyst will unleash an additional shock that amplifies the force of an attack, making it easier to smash through armour and send your foe flying.

** If you kill enemy riders, particularly if they beg for mercy, [[TheButcher you'll be called "the Bloodstained" or "the Merciless"]] as a result.
** Do you have a habit of hitting your allies as much as you do your enemy? You'll be dubbed "the Barbarian."
** If you do most of your fighting with swords [[TheyCallHimSword they'll call you "the Blade"]] in recognition of this.
** If you do a lot of your damage-dealing with a heavy weapon, you'll be known as "the Fierce" or "the Stone-Crusher."
** [[TheGunslinger Making skillful use of guns]] will have you dubbed as "the Gunner."
** If you prefer to [[TechnicalPacifist batter enemy riders into submission]] rather than kill them, you'll be called "the Merciful."
** Alternatively, if you spare defeated foes and you disarm them frequently, you'll be known as "the Peacemaker."
** If you want to be known as "the Wind Warrior," you'll have to do a NoDamageRun. [[HarderThanHard Good luck with that.]]

You do, however, get rewarded for your trouble, and the sophit isn't ludicrously difficult (and you're forced to fight it regardless of what happens beforehand, possibly with the exact same weapon).
* SocketedEquipment: There are three sizes; small, medium, and large. Most weapons (bar the guns) have at least one small slot for GreenRocks, whilst the higher-tier swords tend to have several. The gems cannot be removed once inserted into a socket and may only be recovered by ''destroying'' the weapon, which is only really possible if an ice-gemmed weapon is used to make them brittle enough to smash easily.
