A Mushroom Block[1][2] is an item in Super Mario Bros. 2. They are mostly found above ground in castles and World 7. They can be used to defeat some enemies, or stacked up to reach higher areas. They are required to be thrown in order to defeat bosses Tryclyde, Fryguy, and gray and green Birdos. Mushroom Blocks can also be found in most of the red Birdos' battle rooms. Mushroom Blocks replace the masks used in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic.
