As seen in Super Mario Bros. 3.
Debut Appearance Super Mario Bros. 3
Latest Appearance New Super Mario Bros. 2
Effect Turns Blocks into Coins or vice versa.

P-Switches(or Switch Blocks) were first shown in Super Mario Bros. 3. They would make appearances in Super Mario World, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. Wii and the upcoming Super Mario 3D Land.

When it has been pressed, it will turn something on the level for a limited time. This includes:

In Super Mario Bros. 3, the P-Switch can stop the animations for Question Blocks, Brick Blocks and Note Blocks. In Super Mario World, there is also a gray version that appears and make enemies turn into Silver Coins. Collecting eight of then, will give Mario an extra life. They are also useful for turning Munchers into regular coins. Mario can carry P-Switches in the game and used for later. This is the only game that allows Mario to do so.

P-Switches would appear in Super Mario 3D Land. After they are hit, they will turn from blue to red.

They appear in New Super Mario Bros. 2, where they would have the same effect as they do in the previous New Super Mario Bros. games.
