DQVIII - Hammerhood
Japanese name おおきづち
Rōmaji Ōkizuchi
Family Humanoid
Introduced in V

A Hammerhood (formerly Whackamole, HammerMan, Hammerman and Mallet Gopher) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


Hammerhoods are fairly diminutive creatures, often reaching only knee-high to the average person. They have tan-colored bodies and wear purple fur masks, or a hood as its name would suggest, and have small eyes and small limbs. One of their most outstanding traits is the wooden hammer they carry, often considered larger than the Hammerhood holding it.


Hammerhoods have the ability to Psyche Up and potentially deal more damage to party members. However sometimes, they may trip whilst attempting to attack party members and waste their turn.

Tips to Combat:

- Treat with Low Priority.
