Crystal Blocks[1] are objects in Super Mario 3D World and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. These blocks are made out of an amethyst-shaded crystal similar in appearance and function to normal Brick Blocks, in that they shatter when hit, unless they are hit by Small Mario. Unlike Brick Blocks, however, Crystal Blocks never have items inside.

Crystal Blocks appear as course elements in Super Mario Maker 2, where they replace regular Brick Blocks in the underground and forest styles of the Super Mario 3D World style. This now allows Crystal Blocks to have contents. They also appear in the background of the underground level theme in the Super Mario 3D World style, which itself is based on Koopa Troopa Cave.
