? Blocks, pronounced as Question Blocks, are blocks in the Super Mario series that Mario can bump to receive his items. Coins, Mushrooms, and many other items can be found in Question Blocks. After a ? Block is bumped, it results in a Used Block or a block which can't be broken by regular means. It is arguably one of Nintendo's most iconic items.
? Blocks appear throughout the game, Super Mario Bros. 2010 like they do in any New Super Mario Bros. game. They are very common in the game.
Sloppy ? Blocks appear in Super Sloppy Bros., containing Super Mushrooms, Fire Flowers, Stars, 1-Up Mushrooms, Mini Mushrooms, Ice Flowers, Yoshi Eggs, and Coins.

A peculiar item called the POW ? Block appears a new item in this game, which appears to be an amalgamation of the ? Block and the POW Block. They appear above the kart, make three warning crashes, and flip the player similar to that of a Red Shell, except they make him lose any items. It can be avoided if the player is in the air. Pressing the use items button gives the player a milder version of the effect and only spins him out.
