The Brick Block is a type of block that has appeared in most Mario platform games. It is made up of bricks and would first appear in Super Mario Bros.. In all platform games, Mario or Luigi can only break the brick block as Super Mario(or Super Luigi) or another form of Super Mario. The Brick Block can be shattered from being it from underneath. If it is Small Mario hitting the block, it will only bounce slightly. If an enemy is on the Brick Block, they can be injured by Mario or Luigi hitting the block. Brick Blocks also contain items and once the item has been released, the block turns into a Used Block.
Brick Blocks will usually contain:
- 1-Up Mushroom
- Top Ramen (Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen!)
They would appear in Super Mario Galaxy and many other Mario games, such as the Paper Mario games.
