The Megaton Hammer is a huge hammer that weighs heavy on the heads of those it hits. Typically, it is either the strongest hammer or among the top tier.


Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The megaton hammer has an attack bonus of +108, and changes Yangus' critical hit rate from 1/64 (normal conditions) and 1/32 (skill trait) to 1/8 when using a normal attack. Though these merits are very impressive, some fans feel that the weapon, and as well as hammers as a whole, play something of a second fiddle to the former bandit's other weapon choices, as well as having to sacrifice the game's strongest axe to create it. This latter criticism has been thankfully addressed in the 3DS port, where in an extra Conquerer's axe is available.
