Hela's Hammer is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest franchise. The hammer is so hefty that it has poor accuracy, but will always land a critical hit when it does connect with a monster, making it ideal to hunt metal slimes with. Unless noted below, the hammer reduces accuracy to 38ths (37.5%).


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Hela's hammer has an attack bonus of +70... but it is cursed and is glued to the weilder's hand until a priest removes it. It's found in the Colossus and can be equipped by the Hero, Ragnar, and Psaro.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

Hela's hammer has an attack bonus of +70, and hits 25% of the time. It can be found in the Mantleplace, and dropped by a Balhib at a rate of 1/64. Sancho and Debora are the only humans who can equip it.

The monsters that can swing the hammer are the Archdemon, Battle Pip, Brownie, Conkerer, Gigantes, Hoodlum, and Orc King.
