The first video game about Jet hammers was released in 2004.

Sega, Blizzard Entertainment and Digital Extremes has published most of these games

Often a hammer with rocket engine in one side which is activated with each swing for a brief time to deliver a devastating blow.

Also including any other technology that is claimed to accelerate the weapon to speeds not possible otherwise for the swings.

This type of item probably originates from anime/manga, with one of the earlier examples found in GunnM (Battle Angel Alita) and likely several even older mecha animes.
