A Goomba Board in Super Mario 3D Land

Boards are wooden cutouts of various entities that appear in Super Mario 3D Land. They can take the shape of Goombas, 1-Up Mushrooms, and Warp Pipes (referred to as Goomba Boards[1], 1-Up Mushroom Boards[2], and Pipe Boards[3], respectively) and occasionally give the player items when broken. They block Mario's path but can easily be jumped on or broken using either Tanooki Mario's tail, a roll, or a Ground Pound. In World 8-Bowser: Part 1, there is a board shaped like Princess Peach at the exit of the castle when Bowser is defeated for the first time, but Bowser shows up and crushes the board. If the player replays the level, only some fragments of the board exist there.

Bowser Board in Shadow-Play Alley

A board shaped like Bowser also appears in Super Mario 3D World, in Shadow-Play Alley, scaring Captain Toad.

Some Big Goomba boards appear in the Mario Kart 7 course Piranha Plant Slide. They can be easily broken by ramming them, but they will respawn regularly. There is also one bush board that stands between the fences in an off-road area at the end of the course. They appear again in Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
