P Blocks are objects in Super Mario Maker 2 that can be placed in every level style. Similar to ON/OFF Switches, they are activated or deactivated whenever the player hits a P Switch; they are outlined when deactivated, and when activated, they become solid blocks that cannot be destroyed by any means. Due to the effect being temporary, the blocks operate in a similar way to the Dotted-Line Blocks from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its sequels.
