The Double Hammer is a gigantic armored knight that appears in two secret areas in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia: the Training Hall and the Large Cavern. He comes armed with two giant hammers, one in each hand, and instead of wielding them normally, he holds them upside-down while stepping onto their heads, using them to move around in a bizarre manner. He moves surprisingly fast and can easily outrun the player. Since his attacks also cover a very large area around him, he's often capable of trapping the player in one corner of the rooms he's encountered in.
He also attacks in very unconventional ways. When he comes near the player, he will stop for a moment and slowly build up a powerful kick; he'll then proceed to kick the head of one of his hammers, sending it arcing upward with tremendous force and inflicting massive damage, while also covering all the general area in front of him. His other attack consists on planting the two hammers in place and using them as support to perform a 360° range kick where he spins his whole body. This attack covers the whole immediate area around him, again, dealing massive damage.
His attacks are so powerful that even a high leveled character probably won't be able to withstand two or three consecutive hits.
He's usually encountered paired or in rooms near to where Weapon Masters can also be found.
- Charges at the player.
- Swings one of his two hammers upward by performing a kick.
- Performs a bizarre stationary spinning kick while he holds the hammers on the ground to support his weight.
As most armored knights, Double Hammers are weak to Strike and Thunder, so fighting them with glyphs that provide these damage types is recommended. Since they are so tall and can get to the player's position very quickly, it's advisable to approach them while flying and lure them into performing an attack, then quickly get behind them (taking care not to make contact with their bodies, as touching them also inflicts heavy damage) and attack them from behind with powerful attacks (like, for example, Venus) while they are busy attacking the other side.
Do note that while the damage potential of Double Hammers is easily their claim to fame, it can also be greatly reduced by equipping a Rubber Suit beforehand. They would still be strong enough to make even most residents of Dracula's Castle look weak in comparison in that case, but taking only 100 per attack is far better than taking 300+.
