Hammer Guardian Statues appears as one of the four statue types that can be controlled via the Dominion Rod. They appear inside the Temple of Time and Link must guard them back to their original positions inside the Temple. While being controlled by the Dominion Rod, they can attack enemies with their Hammers.
A Hammer Guardian Statue can be summoned by Princess Zelda as part of her Dominion Rod moveset. Like in Twilight Princess it uses its hammer to attack enemies. It can be summoned as Zelda's controlled statue by using the Rod's Strong Attack. It is one out of two statues summoned as part of the Dominion Rod moveset, the other being Owl Statues.
