Brickmen[1] are enemies in Mario vs. Donkey Kong. They attack by dropping three bricks below them at a time. Mario must either pass through the hazardous path carefully or use a Handstand Walk so that the falling bricks harmlessly bounce off him. Brickmen are always located in inaccessible spaces, and therefore cannot be defeated. They are encountered in Mario Toy Company, Twilight City, Mario Toy Factory, and Twilight City Plus.
