The Hammer Arm is a melee weapon arm for the Ridepod in Dark Chronicle. It is one of the few available for purchase, but like all Ridepod parts, the Hammer Arm and its later variants can be invented. The Hammer Arm's melee combo is identical to that of the other melee weapons, but is generally slower in trade for hitting harder. It attacks with a right downwards slam, followed by a downwards slam with the left arm and finishing it with a double attack using both arms, with each hit dealing more damage than the last. It is also the sole melee weapon (aside from the Cannonball Arm) with an increasing Smash stat, ensuring even more damage against susceptible opponents.

The base Hammer Arm can be bought from Cedric for 800 EXP in Chapter 6, at which point it is completely outclassed by the other options. Each arm part can be invented and built in respectively Chapters 4, 5, 6 and 7, with especially the Hammer Arm IV being excessively expensive at over 30,000 Gilda. If the required Diamond, which is responsible for most of the price, is unavailable, it can be bought in Chapter 8.
