Baddie Boxes (also called Bowser Boxes or Bowser Dispensers) are Blocks appearing in Super Mario 3D Land, Super Mario 3D World, and its remake. They're dark olive green boxes with dark yellow borders and Bowser's symbols in red printed on its sides. They're semi-rare, featured in worlds such as World 2-4 and Special 1-3. These blocks release two kinds of enemies: Goombas in normal levels and Dry Bones is castle levels. Baddie Boxes have an infinite amount of enemies. They can be destroyed with a pound of Statue Mario or with a Starman though these methods may prove fatal as Baddie Boxes are typically found in open air or with lava underneath. A glitch that occurs when White Tanooki Mario ground pounds prevents him from falling through the box. The box explodes and the game starts to lag. This glitch can be done by Invincible Mario or Luigi in Special 1-3 because the Baddie Boxes are sitting on a platform and not in the air.

In World 2-4 and Special 1-3, Baddie Boxes are seen releasing Goombas, while in World 5- and Special 8-3, they release infinite Dry Bones.
