Screenshot of some types of walls for demolition

Walls for demolition[1] or mashable walls[2] are objects in VS. Wrecking Crew and Wrecking Crew that are required to be destroyed in order to complete the phase. Mario, Luigi, and Foreman Spike are able to break them, as well as dynamite.

Walls for demolition also appear in the Wrecking Crew stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They are only broken by bombs, and if there are not enough walls to support the platform above, the platform falls.


Walls for demolition include:

  • A wall that breaks in one hit
  • A brick wall that breaks in two hits
  • A darker brick wall that breaks in three hits
  • A ladder wall that breaks in one hit, which can also be climbed. Breaking the ladder wall at the bottom causes all of the ladder walls above it to break.
  • A pillar that is not required to be destroyed, which causes the object it was supporting to fall. This is not found in the VS. arcade version.

The Golden Hammer can smash any wall with a single swing. Breaking walls grants 100 points, except for ladder walls which grant more points the taller the ladder stack is. This also applies to walls broken with dynamite. Pillars grant no points.
