Who is ? Block? Edit
? Block is an item found within the Super Mario Bros. series. It is rumoured that the ? Blocks are citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom that were turned to stones and bricks in order to make up each level Mario travels on. Whether instruction manuals are canon is up for debate, but it is interesting to imagine that there is some history related to the block.
The ? Block is also known as the item block. It is the most helpful and common item in the Mario series. By jumping or attacking the block it causes it to release coins or other items such as mushrooms, fire flowers or stars among other power-ups. There are also hidden ? Blocks throughout each game which grants you bragging rights with your friends should you find them.

Win-Loss Record: 0-1
Summer 2013 Contest - Division 9 - 8 Seed
- Division 9 Round 1 --- 2nd place, 11714 [37.52%] - (20) Rikku, 12980 [41.57%] - (11) Lyndis, 6528 [20.91%]
Winning the bonus poll in 2007 made a lot of people think ? Block may have a lot of strength. Despite joke characters not being as strong as they use to ? Block was the favourite over Rikku. However, with the weak performances of other joke characters it became more likely that ? Block was not going to win. Having a Fire Emblem character to leech the Nintendo vote didn't help matters, either. Indeed Rikku was able to take the quick lead and was able to take the narrow victory. ? Block may not be able to defeat post-2007 winner L-Block, but the block did show it has some contest strength.
