Hammerhand is a cyborg pirate from Third Earth.


Captain Hammerhand first appeared in the episode The Terror of Hammerhand. He and his companions, the Berserkers, were trying to capture unicorns from the unicorn forest, luckily Snarf was there to step in and help and protected several unicorns but was then captured himself. Taken out to sea, Hammerhand was holding Snarf and a baby unicorn captive. Using the Sword of Omens' "Sight Beyond Sight" ability, Lion-O saw Snarf was in trouble and went to rescue them. After a battle with the Thundercats, Hammerhand and his band of Berserkers were sunk by a whirlpool.

Mumm-Ra later raised Hammerhand from his watery grave so that he can occupy the cloned body of Panthro. Lion-O managed to defeat the imposter with help from the Sword of Omens' powers. Hammerhand in Panthro's body returned to Mumm-Ra and destroyed the cloning machine in anger. The clone body then shifts to Hammerhand's body before disappearing.

Hammerhand later returned with a new bunch of pirates when Mumm-Ra hired them to capture Lynx-O, Pumyra, Bengali, and two Berbils who had crashed on an island following the destruction of Thundera.
