"Sand Blacksmiths" are a common enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Official Description

{{Quote|These lumbering beasts sport an enormous sledgehammer that is used to knock the Prince off his feet. They rely on the weapon's lengthy shaft to block many the Prince's attacks, including wall rebound attacks. And if that doesn't make it tough enough, this beast is powerful enough to make an attempted black useless. The good news is that the Prince can evade these creatures' attacks with relative ease and, as a result, these Sand Creatures many actually swing their sledgehammers into one another.


These Sand creatures usually reside in prison and other areas where metal work is needed.



These brutes carry a huge, heavy hammer weapon, which can deal deadly damage to the Prince if he's unfortunate enough to get hit. They are one of the two enemies who can break through the Prince's defenses by using their weapon to hit his legs, the other being Sand Generals.

To defeat these enemies, it's best to evade their damaging strikes, thanks to their slow speed, and take them down using a variety of attacks. It is best to vault over them and attack, as they are invulnerable to wall bounce attacks.
