Giant Brick Blocks are large Brick Blocks that first appeared in Super Mario Bros. 3, where they are only found in Big Island. In spite of their size, Super Mario and Koopa Shells can destroy these blocks.
They reappear in Super Mario Galaxy 2. However, unlike in Super Mario Bros. 3, these Giant Brick Blocks are indestructible and act as platforms rather than Brick Blocks. These are found only in the Supermassive Galaxy.
These blocks reappear in New Super Mario Bros. U. They are similar to those in Super Mario Bros. 3, as they are able to be destroyed by Super Mario or Koopa Shells. They are found only in Soda Jungle, most notably in the Jungle of the Giants level.
