You wanna fight a god, use the weapon of a god.
Anya Jenkins[src]

Olaf the Trollgod's Enchanted Hammer was a weapon brandished by Olaf.[1][2]


The weapon was a hammer Olaf wielded while terrorizing his fellow villagers after being transformed into a troll in 880, Sweden.[2] In 2001, Olaf was accidentally released from a crystal in Sunnydale along his Enchanted Hammer, and he used it to destroy the Bronze club. The troll was eventually defeated and banished, but his hammer stayed behind.[1]

Buffy kept Olaf's hammer as a souvenir, and it remained at the Magic Box placed on a display case with a concrete slab to support it. Later on, upon Anya's timely recommendation, Buffy used it to pummel Glorificus, a near-invulnerable hell-goddess, into submission, before abandoning it at a beaten and bloody Ben's side.[3]

Powers and abilities[]

The hammer was already notable for being a remarkable supernatural weapon — despite his vampire strength, Spike was unable to lift it.[4]

Months later, Anya brought up the hammer as one of the two weapons that Buffy could use against Glory, noting that it contained divine power, and unlike Spike, the Slayer was able to wield it easily. Olaf's hammer further proved its worth when, during the final fight against Glory, it caused visible bleeding damage to the hell-goddess (who had, before then, always emerged from the fights with neither scratch nor any damage) when Buffy used it against her repeatedly, finally morphing her back into Ben's form.[3]
