Effect Has a higher chance of landing critical hits. (VIII)

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: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

The megaton hammer has an attack bonus of +108, and changes Yangus and Morrie's critical hit rates 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 other metal slime mauling options, 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, wherein an extra Conquerer's axe is available and due to Morrie's hammer options being more useful.

The megaton hammer does not boast the higher critical hit rate as it did in the earlier Level-5 title, but it still stands tall among the strongest clubs.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Megaton Hammer appears as a skill that can be learned by Hammerhood through Talent Blossoming. It costs 60 MP to use and has a chance to deliver a 100% potency physical damage critical hit to all enemies in a small T-shaped area in front of it, but has a high chance of missing.
