Alice: Madness Returns Wonderland
Melee | Ranged
Hammer melee

The Hammer was an unreleased weapon intended to be equipped by Alice throughout her journey in Wonderland. It was one of several weapon concepts based upon tarot and took the color of orange when equipped.


The Hammer originally had two primary attacks: one ranged attack and another melee. Similar to the current use of the Hobby Horse, Alice could smash the Hammer down upon her enemy and crush them; however, if Alice could not reach the enemy closely, a projectile could be launched in a similar fashion to the Teapot Cannon from the base of the head.[1]


Hammer dress

The orange Hammer dress.

The Hammer was a fire-blazed explosion of orange and brown metals both rusted and heated. It sent massive explosions and bursts of fire when used. It was smothered in gauges, buttons, and dials, indicating it could have a relation to the Hatter's Domain.

When equipped, the Hammer turned Alice's Classic blue ensemble to an orange-smothered frock which reflected the lava-like explosions erupting from the weapon.


  • Initially, these weapons were planned to make an appearance in-game as they had models and animations (which now cannot be found in the game files). They were cut, but the Fire Whip was shown in the beta trailer, which sparked a lot of controversy.
  • The Hammer was one of the four weapons and dresses which were in the original line-up. The others being the Classic dress, the Cup and the Wand.
  • Although the Hammer was entirely unused in-game, it had a similar appearance to the final model of the Carpenter's hammer.
