Hammer seeds are items that, when used, cause Pikmin to grow sledgehammer heads on their stems. When thrown, hammer seed Pikmin drop down onto enemies, much like Purple Pikmin, and also have a chance to stun the enemies. Pikmin players with this power-up have increased damage, as well as the ability to randomly stun, and charge forward to consecutively swing their hammer down on enemies.

The Hammer Seed is a species of power pod appearing in Pikmin: Neo. It is a small purple flowering plant, roughly the same size as a leader. The center of the flower contains a large block-shaped structure with a leaf-like appendage coming out of it. They typically are found in snowy or rocky areas and small groups. Each bulb can be harvested, allowing for the cultivation and collection of hammer nectar, a black, honey-like substance that can be sprayed on all Pikmin on the field. When applied to Pikmin, the nectar temporarily changes their leaf, bud, or flower to resemble a hammer similar to the structure in the center of the Hammer Seed's flowers. This makes them much slower but doubles their attack power and is great for quickly killing dangerous enemies if movement isn't a strong suit.


Olimar's notes

These plants gained a tough outer flower that contains a wax allowing it to remove any particulate matter. This allows it to live in harsh climates such as artic and mountainous biomes. Its central seed pod stores water in case moisture is scarce, which is often the case where it lives.

Louie's notes

Inedible. The bulb is too tough to consume and is hard as a rock.
