A colorful crate is a stage object in Dr. Mario World. Introduced in World 8, they are crates with a colored layer surrounding it. When a capsule match of the same color as the colorful crate is made near it, the colorful crate will be destroyed. If the capsule match of a different color from the colorful crate is matched near it, it will not be destroyed. Any skill or item that eliminates are able to destroy colorful crates regardless of its color. Dr. Larry's skill involves colorful crates, where in stage mode he can destroy up to 10 colorful crates (8 prior to version 1.4.0) in the stage including the destroyable object that contain it (e.g. barrels), while in versus mode he can send up to 8 colorful crates to the opponent's side of the field.
