The Jump Block (or Music Block, Note Block, or a ♪ Block) is a block that allows Mario or Luigi to jump higher than their regular jumps allow. They would first appear in Super Mario Bros. 3 before being in Super Mario World. In Super Mario Bros. 3, they would allow them to jump high (by pressing the jump button) and a power-up would occasionally bounce out of the Jump Block when the player jumps on the block. They would act the same way in Super Mario World.

There would be pink Jump Blocks that also appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3. They would be hidden in some levels and would send Mario or Luigi to Coin Heaven when they were found and jumped on. This would allow them to collect many coins and even extra lives. Two of the e-Reader card levels for Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 would be made up of only Jump blocks 06: Magical Note Blocks and 11: Onpu Block de Athletic!. They would be used for the mini-game Bound of Music in Mario Party 5. Players would have to jump and hit most of the Jump Blocks though they were invisible. They would also appear in Mario Superstar Baseball in Peach's Castle field. If a baseball touches it then the batter could hit a homerun due to the extra bounce.

They would appear in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 in a few episodes.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii would have blocks similar to the Jump Blocks called White-Green Checkered Blocks.

Jump Blocks are set to appear in Super Mario 3D Land, where they serve the same purpose as they did in Super Mario Bros. 3. This marks their first appearance in a 3D Mario platformer game and they will make musical sounds and make musical notes when they are jumped on. They will occasionally make the sound when Yoshi is mounted from Super Mario World.

Note Blocks appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2 and when they are jumped on, they will make sounds. Their appearance would be from other 2D platformers.
