The Piko Hammer[1] is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is the main weapon of Amy Rose.



The Piko Hammer resembles a double-faced sledgehammer or mallet. It has a larger, cylinder-shaped red head with raised rectangular sections on the middle and thick yellow face disks. It also has a brown handle with a white metal section where it meets the head.

Features and traits

Despite its colorful and innocent appearance, the Piko Hammer is a powerful melee weapon, capable of dealing incredible damage with seemingly little effort; with one hit, it was able to bring down a damaged Death Crab. It also makes a "piko" sound when hitting something and will sometimes emit pink hearts.[2]



For an undocumented span of time, the Piko Hammer has been the main weapon of Amy Rose. Where she got it from and when is unknown. She has used the Piko Hammer in every battle she has participated in and with incredible proficiency, though it is unknown whether it is through a natural talent or an unknown amount of practice.

Present day

The Piko Hammer was first seen when Amy used it to bring down a Death Crab that had just picked itself back up after Sonic beat it.[2] Afterwards, she put it to good use when her team began their mission to break the Egg Fleet's control over Angel Island.[3]
