Hammer Flip is an attack which was introduced in Kirby Super Star. It is usually one of the Hammer ability's strongest attacks.

Overview

Hammer Flip is usually performed by pressing ↑ + attack button. The user sets their hammer on fire in a second or two, which can be interrupted by enemy's attacks during the startup. If the preparation is successful, the user does a powerful flip (usually an uppercut) with their now flaming hammer, dealing heavy damage to enemies. Flame versions can light Cannon Fuses, burn grass, etc. like other Fire-element attacks do.

Hammer Flip can be performed by:

Super Smash Bros. series

Hammer Flip is Kirby's side special move in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, replacing his no-element Hammer from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Hammer Flip in these games can be charged to increase power, and Kirby can move and jump slowly while charging. Uncharged version has no element and only charged version does flame damage. However, Kirby will receive recoil damage if it's over-charged.

In Kirby: Planet Robobot, as the Smash Bros. ability is based on Kirby's moveset from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the Smash Bros. version of Hammer Flip is performed by "→ + B" and also chargable unlike its traditional appearances in the Kirby series.

Charge Hammer Flip

In Kirby Star Allies, Hammer Kirby, Bonkers the Helper and King Dedede the Dream Friend receive the Charge Hammer Flip attack instead. Its button execution remains the same (↑ + attack button).

As its name suggests, Charge Hammer Flip is chargable and the user can move and jump slowly while charging, just like the Smash Bros. version in Kirby: Planet Robobot. However, Charge Hammer Flip has no element by default, i.e. to reprise the traditional flame Hammer Flip, the user has to be enchanted the Sizzle element. In addition, if the hammer is over-charged, it will break, leaving the user with only the handle, which can still be swung for very little damage. The hammer returns to normal after this.

The following lists the additional effects of elemental Charge Hammer Flip.

  • Bluster: Instead of flipping, the user does a jumping hammer slam with wind effects, becoming invincible during the attack.
  • Blizzard: The flip creates several icicles in the front.
  • Sizzle: The flip throws several parabolic fireballs.
  • Splash: The flip throws several parabolic splashes.
  • Zap: Lightning bolts drop onto the hammer as it flips.
