Blockhoppers are robotic creatures found in many desert levels in New Super Mario Bros.. They resemble Pile Driver Micro-Goombas of Super Mario Bros. 3, but are, as aforementioned, robots rather than Goombas. Also, contrary to the Pile Driver Micro-Goombas, they'll disguise themselves as both blocks and ? Blocks, posing much more of a threat to Mario and Luigi.

Interestingly, the Blockhopper will hop in tune with the music playing, much like the other enemies will dance to it. To know if a ? Block is a Blockhopper or not, Mario or Luigi must make sure to see if the question mark is moving or not. If it isn't, then it's a Blockhopper. To defeat a Blockhopper, Mario and Luigi must perform a Ground Pound from above it.
