A segmented platform in New Super Mario Bros. 2.

Segmented platforms[1] are objects appearing in New Super Mario Bros. 2, resembling a Spine Coaster version of a Skull Raft. They have heads resembling Dry Bones and sail across lava. Two segmented platforms appear in World 6-2. When Mario or Luigi first lands on them, their eyes glow with a vocal cue and they sail along the lava. Once a segmented platform has reached its stop, Mario or Luigi can ground-pound its head to make it spit out a large number of coins or even a 1-Up Mushroom. Three segmented platforms are also featured in the Third Course of the Platform Panic Pack, with the latter having one body segment and remaining in place. Two segmented platforms also appear in the Third Course of the Coin Challenge Pack C DLC, where they are noticeably missing the head and move along the descending and ascending lava flow.
