Question Blocks, also known as ? Blocks, are extremely common blocks found throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. They're seen in almost every level, providing players with powerups, coins, and even secrets.


Question Blocks are yellow blocks with small indents in each corner and a white question mark on each of their sides excluding their top and bottom. This question mark constantly spins across their surface rightward.


Question Blocks often float stationary midair, though are also found spinning around certain things and on the ground. When a Question Block is hit from below, ground pounded from above, or hit by some sort of shell, it'll turn into a Used Block before ejecting something out of its top.
