Phantom Hands[1] are floating disembodied gloves that point to secrets in New Super Mario Bros. They appear only in World 7-A Ghost House icon from the New Super Mario Bros. game for the Nintendo DS., and their only purpose is to point out the location of an Invisible Flying ? Block containing either a ? Switch or a power-up that moves back and forth to the player. They are not enemies, nor can they be defeated.

The Phantom Hands' appearance is similar to that of the disembodied hands from the Mario Party 5 minigame Handy Hoppers, as well as to Master Hand.
