Blokkabloks[1] are common serpentine enemies appearing in Super Mario 3D Land. They have pointed green heads covered in spikes, angry eyes resembling a Bullet Bill's, and green and spiked tails. A Blokkablok's body is composed of anywhere between one to seven Brick Blocks, ? Blocks, or each. Blokkabloks do not attack Mario or Luigi but simply hover overhead in a set route, so they can easily be avoided by just walking underneath them. Destroying all the Brick Blocks and hitting all the ? Blocks on a Blokkablok causes it to fall apart, defeating it. Coins or power-ups can be obtained by hitting the ? Blocks contained in a Blokkablok. Unlike with normal Brick Blocks and ? Blocks, Small Mario can break a Blokkablok's Brick Blocks, and its ? Blocks break when hit.
