The Magma Hammer is a Fire-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.


The Magma Hammer is a golden or possibly brass halberd with a red grip. It has a blunted spike at the end of its head and a large block instead of a blade on the side, giving it the hammer-like appearance that inspired its name. The hammer head is comprised of two metal sections surrounding some sort of porous lava-like material; it may well be cooled lava, but the color makes this unlikely unless it was painted.

The Magma Hammer packs strong, well-rounded stats, with solid offensive stats and a large boost to both defenses and HP. This unfortunately comes at the cost of a 10% decrease to Evade and Accuracy; while this may make it a bit unwieldy, the Magma Hammer is a weapon with a good balance of power and defense, especially at the time it is obtained in the game.

The Magma Hammer also has a knack for burning everything; not only can its Weapon-elemental skills inflict a Burn, it can also unleash Fume, which can result in an additional Burn. This can lead to the Magma Hammer wearing out the foe's health over time.

In terms of resistances, the Magma Hammer provides a resistance to Fire, Bomb and, oddly enough, Freeze instead of Burn. The Freeze resistance becomes an immunity at Level 5.

  • Technically, this should be a lava hammer as it is outside of the ground.
  • The Magma Hammer's actual "hammer" (and therefore the icon) resembles a hammer being hit against an anvil, such as in a forge.
