L Blocks,[citation needed] also known as Luigi Blocks,[1] are a type of block exclusive to the Mario & Luigi series. They are very similar to the ? Blocks, though only Luigi or Baby Luigi can activate them. M Blocks are similar to these blocks; however, M Blocks can be activated only by Mario or Baby Mario. In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, L Blocks are often used to solve puzzles. In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, they can be found scattered through different places. In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, they are mainly used for minigames to earn Attack Pieces. Both L Blocks and M Blocks contain items for the Mario Bros. to collect, and have been grouped together with ? Blocks as Treasure Blocks.[2]

A similar block known as "Cap Block L," along with Cap Blocks M and W, was originally going to appear in Super Mario 64 DS and contained Luigi's cap, but the blocks were removed.[3] They can still be found in a test level.[4]
