Iron Blocks[1] appear in the Super Mario series as interactable metal crates that player characters can use as makeshift platforms.

History[edit]

New Super Mario Bros. Wii[edit]

Iron Blocks first appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are characterized as indestructible boxes moved by Conveyor Belts, and they are sometimes infinitely spawned by characteristically defined generators. Iron Blocks come in four different variants, all of which are a combination of widths 2–4 and heights 2–4, and getting crushed by a falling Iron Block results in an immediate loss of life. They appear only in World 4-Tower, where they are the gimmick of the level.

New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Luigi U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe[edit]

Iron Blocks are objects in New Super Mario Bros. U, New Super Luigi U, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Their behavior is largely unchanged from New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They appear in Roy's Conveyor Castle in New Super Mario Bros. U and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe; they appear in Roy's Ironclad Castle and P Switch Peril in New Super Luigi U. Additionally, the 4×4 variant features Bowser's emblem on its visible face.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder[edit]

Iron Blocks are objects in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They have Bowser's emblem like in New Super Mario Bros. U. Iron Blocks can be destroyed from Bowser robot's lasers during airship Wonder Effects.
