OK, I'm just throwing this out there. In all the games of the Super Mario series I have never seen or heard the word, Coin Block. In those games, Blocks that contain multiple coins have simply been called Brick Blocks or ? Blocks (depending on their appearance). Just because a Brick Block shoots out coins, doesn't mean we change the name to Coin Block (If a ? Block gives a Mushroom, do we change the name to a mushroom block? No!). And I know that some sources call them coins blocks, but the official sources (Game instruction booklets, official websites, etc.) call them Brick or ? Blocks (Look in a SMG or NSMB manual, they do not call them Coin Blocks they say "Hit a Brick Block and you might find multiple coins"). Basically we should merge some of the info here to the ? Block/Brick Block articles and delete this page.

  1. IGGY7735 (talk) Per Myself


  1. Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) No there different blocks that appear in the same games at the same time with different names
  2. Vellidragon (talk) - Tattle from the Paper Mario section of this very article: "That's a coin block. Every time you hit it, a coin will come out..." Brick Block and ? Block don't refer specifically to blocks with coins in them, and the cited example just states that Brick Blocks may contain multiple coins, not that only blocks that contain multiple coins are Brick Blocks.


Coin Block Confusion[edit]

I've been looking through my Super Mario Galaxy 2 manual and noticed something. The manual says this about ? Blocks: Jump and hit this from below to release coins or Star Bits. SMG2 only has ? Blocks that give multiple star bits or multiple coins. This wiki says that any block with multiple coins (even if it has a ? on it) is not called a ? Block, but a Coin Block. So according to the SMG2 manual its a ? Block, but according to the mariowiki its a coin Block. Shouldn't we make info the manual and the article agree?
