First appearance Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (1994)

Spring-Ups,[1] also known as sun blocks,[2] are blocks with smiling faces that appear in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3. They appear scarcely; first in Course No.23 of Stove Canyon, where they lead Wario to the secret exit to Course No.24. They do not appear again until Courses No.39 and 40 in Syrup Castle. In these levels, they are required to progress, and in 40 especially, they help Wario reach many coins.

Spring-Ups are similar to Jump Blocks, except the player cannot control the bounce height (which is past the top of the screen), and Trampoline Blocks, except they are not disguised in their environment.
