A Bros. Block[1] is a special block found in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. It is a yellow block with an arrow on it. When struck by either Mario or Luigi, it will move in the direction of the arrow and change to the opposite brother's color and initial. When struck by that brother, it will move back to where it was and change again. Each time a Bros. Block is struck, the brothers will receive a coin. Striking Bros. Blocks take speedy timing, as there are usually twenty coins in each one. However, if the brothers are too slow on their jumping, less coins will be earned.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they do not add to the game's total block counter.
