Official name? I heard they were called Flip Blocks. Phoenix Rider

...And I heard they were called Rotating Blocks. Weird... --YellowYoshi398 14:29, 2 April 2007 (EDT)

I thought that it was Turn Block, not Turning Block. C???

Turning Block sounds really unnoficial, especially since not all Turning Blocks turn. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

They received different names, I'm sure they were called "Turning Blocks" somewhere as well, can't find the source now though. In the SMW manual, they are called "Rotating Blocks". Time Questions 07:33, 7 January 2010 (EST)
If we don't have a source yet for "Turning Blocks", but we do for "Rotating Blocks", shouldn't we move it to Rotating Blocks? -- Garlic Man (talk)
Yep. Hello, I'm Time Turner.

Split Rotating Block and Stretch Block[edit]

Settledproposal.svg This talk page proposal has already been settled. Please do not edit any of the sections in the proposal. If you wish to discuss the article, do so in a new header below the proposal.


I was reading a Mario Mania scan, when I found the name "Stretch Block" in the page with the Yoshi's Island 3 level info. Mario Mania was made by Nintendo, so it's an official source of names and other things. My proposal is this: split Stretch Block info from the Rotating Block, because it's formally counted as a different block. If we create this article, we will improve it. Also, in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Stretch Blocks appear, not Rotating Blocks.

What exactly is a Stretch Block? Mario4Ever (talk)

Yeah are they the ones that you ride or are they the regular rotating blocks Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Stretch Blocks are the ones that you ride: they constantly extend (horizontally or vertically) in 5 blocks and retract. In SMW they are light yellow, in NSMB Wii they are orange.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mikiuz (talk).

U might be in the wrong one i think those are called snake blocks and they already have a page of course i might be wrong but you might wanna check that page out Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

I know what are Snake Blocks: they are the group of blocks witch move. Have you ever played Super Mario World? In the third level of the first world, there are some light yellow blocks that extend in 5 blocks and retract. These blocks reappear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii in the second level of the ninth world, near the end with an orange color. Mikiuz (talk)

Yeah now i remember alright i understand Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
