The Hammer Shaker is one of the Giant brothers, an armored giant that wields an equally gigantic warhammer.
Taller and thinner than most other "Armor" enemies, this greenish-blue hued knight carries a warhammer on his shoulder. He attacks by swinging it in a downward arc, or kicking. This attack can be avoided by stepping back or by getting close to the knight, as the shaft of the hammer deals no damage; however, this is risky, as it may result in damage due to physical contact with the Hammer Shaker himself.
They come clad in heavy armor, although they are not particularly resilient. They pace back and forth, and smash the giant hammers they wield on the ground when approached. This attack has considerable reach, so keeping some distance is advised.
One of the Giant brothers. He's often encountered along with his elder sibling, Blade. He smashes his huge steel hammer on the ground, providing with this some cover for his more agile brother while he attempts to stab at the hero. Both knights stagger when hit, however, so an attack that deals constant and rapid damage, like the Holy Water, will buy the player some time while dealing with them.
Hammer-Hammer is encountered in a cave located on the top level of the Luminous Cavern in Castle A. His armor has a quite peculiar design, boasting a red and blue scheme, and wearing a curved helmet that somewhat gives it the appearance of being an executioner's hood.
Similar to other giant armoredknights in the game, he slowly paces forward and then smashes his giant hammer on the ground; this makes three Fleamen to fall from the ceiling to aid him in battle.
The knight is not particularly difficult and the Fleamen can be disposed of easily, making dealing with him more a matter of patience, as he's quite resilient.
The Hammer Shaker in Order of Ecclesia reuses his sprite from Symphony of the Night. They are encountered in most areas within Dracula's Castle and retain their usual attack patterns. They are usually accompanied by smaller enemies, like Imps.
They drop the valuable Melio Macirglyph, which grants Shanoa the most powerful of all hammer-type weapons, although they do so at a very low rate.
