Bricks, also known as Brick Blocks, are obstacles in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are brown bricks. They appear in most levels. When Mario jumps underneath a Brick, he will break the brick. Bricks that don't break, give out a Coin or Power Up. They then become Used Blocks. Bricks do share a role like the Question Block, when it comes to giving out items. Breaking a brick with an enemy on it, will defeat the enemy, instantly. This is a good way to take out the Hammer Bros. and other enemies. Bricks are different colored in certain Worlds. However, their color is usually brown. In underwater levels or watery places, Bricks are usually colored blue. In fortresses and castles, Bricks are gray. In World 8 and other Lava-filled areas, Bricks are orange. Bricks share the same colors as Question Blocks.
