Super Mario series
Super Mario 3D Land
In Super Mario 3D Land, they are only found in World 8-1, World 8-4 and Special 1-3. ? Boxes look just like ? Blocks. Like Propeller Boxes, they are worn by Mario or Luigi on their head, and do not let them throw fireballs or boomerangs, or turn into a statue. It cannot be taken off unless they hit an enemy. If Mario makes it to the Goal Pole with the ? Box, it disappears and gives an extra life. While inside a ? Box, coins will pop out from it while he is moving, although the ? Box will disappear after a certain amount of coins are produced.
New Super Mario Bros. 2
In New Super Mario Bros. 2, similar objects known as Gold Blocks appear, which are revealed by hitting Coin Blocks enough times, and give Mario coins at a much faster rate than the ? Boxes. Unlike ? Boxes, however, a Gold Block will disappear once 100 coins have been collected from it.
Super Mario 3D World
? Boxes return in Super Mario 3D World and its Nintendo Switch port Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, now given the name Coin Boxes, their current name, and shinier than a regular ? Block. This time, they work just like Gold Blocks from New Super Mario Bros. 2, though they retain the ability restrictions (including the inability to turn into a statue) and the 1-Up prize by touching the Goal Pole from Super Mario 3D Land.
Mario Kart Tour
Coin Boxes reappear in Mario Kart Tour as the special item of Mario (Hakama), Peach (Vacation), Pink Gold Peach, Pauline (Party Time), Rosalina (Swimwear), Gold Koopa (Freerunning), Dry Bones (Gold), King Boo (Gold), Bowser (Santa) and Gold Mario exclusively in Gold Rush during the Valentine's Tour. They widely spew 40 coins onto the track when used. During a Coin Box Frenzy, coins surround the player. When Coin Box+ is active, it will additionally spray Red Coins out as well. Coin Boxes received a minor redesign in that their edges and corners are more flat rather than rounded, and the holes in their sides' corners are absent.
