Most Cracked Blocks contain items like bananas and are sometimes found in stacks, especially in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The Kongs are able to jump and stay on a Cracked Block just as on any other platform. Ground pounding on it gradually damages the block until it breaks altogether, exposing the item inside it. Three ground pounds are necessary to destroy a Cracked Block, unlike crates, which only require one. Screaming Pillars turn into breakable structures when they drop on the ground, also requiring three ground pounds to break.
