A 360 degree spin with the Piko Piko Hammer.

The Spin Hammer Attack (回転ハンマー Kaiten Hanmā?) is a technique which can only be performed by Amy Rose when she has the Warrior Feather. It has appeared in Sonic Adventure and its remake Sonic Adventure DX. It is an offensive move where Amy twirls around with her Piko Piko Hammer and is a variant of her trademark Hammer Attack.


In order to perform the Spin Hammer Attack, Amy must have obtained the Warrior Feather. When performing the Spin Hammer Attack, Amy stays in one spot and begins twirling around with her Piko Piko Hammer in a swing at high speeds, allowing her to destroy any enemies that enter the radius of her spin. While whirling, Amy's Piko Piko Hammer leaves a trail of pink hearts and afterimages. In gameplay, the player can perform the Spin Hammer Attack by holding down the Action button and spinning the analog stick in a circle. The attack can then be stopped by letting go of the Action button.

The downside to performing the Spin Hammer Attack is that if it is performed for too long, Amy will get dizzy and temporarily lose coordination. This is presented in gameplay by Amy staggering around uncontrollably for a few seconds, regardless of the player's controls. Another downside is that the Spin Hammer Attack has a small standard attack radius and since the player is rooted to the place when executing it, it is difficult to use. This radius can be increased, however, by obtaining the Long Hammer.
