The hidden smasher[1] is a giant slab of steel hidden in a wall that serves as an obstacle in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. It appears only inside the volcano of Lethal Lava Land, where it falls and tries to crush the player character when he approaches it, similarly to the behavior of a Whomp. If he is crushed by the hidden smasher, he loses three wedges of health.
