Glass Blocks are rare objects that can be found in Wario Land II. They appear like small translucent blocks, apparently made of glass, and are very fragile. Glass Blocks can be picked up and used as a throwing weapon to defeat or stun enemies or to break Enemy Blocks. If the Glass Block falls to the ground or is attacked, it shatters. However, the Glass Block will respawn if the player walks away from it and then returns.

They are first encountered in a level called Defeat Four Ducks!. It is deployed in various rooms throughout Syrup Castle and can be used to progress through the fortress. The player needs to use the Glass Blocks to knock down one of the four D.D.s from an unreachable location, and to smash through a staple of Enemy Blocks.

Objects with similar properties, small Barrels, can be found in Wario Land 3.
