Rocks[1][2] are blocks that appear in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. They first appear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis, being introduced in Room 8-5 of Jungle Hijinks. They appear as dark gray Crumble Blocks; however, unlike Crumble Blocks, rocks obey gravity and do not crumble upon contact with a Mini. Rocks can only be destroyed by an explosion from a bomb, which can be placed by picking up Bomb Blocks.

Rocks reappear in Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars. Unlike their previous appearance, they remain in place without being affected by gravity. They can be destroyed by a Thwomp or by shooting a Mini from a Cannon or a Cannon Kong.

Rocks reappear in Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge. They can be destroyed if a Mini uses hammers or slides into them from a slope. Mini Bowser's special ability, Bowser Bomb, destroys columns of rocks on contact.
