- Not to be confused with Hard Block.
Stone blocks (also parsed as Stone Blocks) are gray stone blocks that appear in Paper Mario. Stone blocks appear in various locations, blocking Mario's way. They most abundantly appear in Dry Dry Ruins, as these blocks cannot be pushed, smashed by the regular Hammer, or destroyed by other means. They can be broken only after Mario obtains a Super Hammer from Dry Dry Ruins. Stone blocks sometimes, albeit rarely, contain enemies, such as a Stone Chomp.
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, an Ultra Hammer is required to break stone blocks. However, the Ultra Hammer appears late in the game, and it is needed to smash only a handful of stone blocks. Additionally, large stone blocks appear, and they require spinning the Ultra Hammer to destroy.
