Why have we been referring to these things as 'disappearing blocks'? The more notable aspect of them is the 'appearing' part.
Even the Megaman Wiki refers to them as 'Appearing Blocks'.
I'm not sure where I picked up the name 'Disappearing blocks. RoahmMythril calls them by their japanese Name, Yoku blocks. So I have no idea where I got this name from.

.........Well, I had to talk about something. And it's not that anything in this stage is worth talking about.

Maybe we call them disappearing blocks because that is the part where they kill us.

I've usually called them disappearing blocks as in short for "disappearing-reappearing blocks".

@Ultimate Yoshi: Me too, strangely.

Also, Wire is finally useful to skip a part (look at the last panel and you'll understand what I meant).

@Extremmefan: Well they couldn't really make Wire absolutely essential since it's hidden, so you can end up missing it entirely. Same with balloon.

It's different in the first Mega Man since while you need a robot master power to get it, the Magnet Beam is on display for all to see.

And thus did the chin force ascend.

The disappearing blocks in this game are a lot less prevalent and generally not as risky as in prior entries, I think.

It was easy and he did it except for that last one

Heck yeah! CHIN POWER! Also is it just me or that invisible-and reappearing block part give me flashbacks to ice man's stage in MM1...

@Djoing: Roahm only just started calling them Yoku blocks. Up until just recently he consistently called them "Disappearing Blocks".

OHAId00ds @Djoing: Well, there's one thing for sure. When they disappear over a pit of spikes, Mega Man dissapears too. Gee, I wonder where he goes...

WIRE you skipping that part? HAHAHAHAHAHAH*shot*

I've been calling them disappearing blocks for years. Only recently stopped calling them that.

@Djoing: Actually, unless I'm mistaken, the sawblade's a stage hazard, not an enemy. So it's still all-Met so far if you don't count the silly sawblade as an enemy.

Reply ZeldaTheSwordsman (Guest), April 28th, 2015, 1:23 am

@ForestFire: It's a SparkSpine, and yes it's an enemy.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, April 28th, 2015, 11:25 am

@ForestFire: It's an enemy. It can be destroyed with the *spoiler redacted*.

Reply ForestFire, April 28th, 2015, 4:44 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: But isn't saying that it can be destroyed also a spoiler? They haven't destroyed any yet as far as I know.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, April 28th, 2015, 5:00 pm

@ForestFire: Well, possibly. But there have been similar enemies that can be destroyed. Like the... I think they're called spines. From MM1. Which could be destroyed using robot master weapons. And they did destroy some of those.

Reply ForestFire, April 28th, 2015, 9:01 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Oh yes, the predecessors to the Spring Heads. I hated those things.

Reply Rotomslashblast, April 27th, 2015, 7:36 pm

Why would a block disappear? Like, how does it scientifically work?

Reply The_mad_one, April 27th, 2015, 7:38 pm

Well, they do live in a world where teleportation exists.

Reply ForestFire, April 27th, 2015, 7:53 pm

@Rotomslashblast: A lot of stuff makes no sense in these games. Like Toe Power.

Reply Kurona, April 28th, 2015, 7:59 am

Considering these blocks look the exact same as the wall but being just a bit lighter; I always considered them platforms jutting out of the wall - the lighter colour signifying it being in the foreground rather than the background.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, April 28th, 2015, 11:22 am

@Djoing: I think Roahm's only be calling them 'yoku blocks' recently. Probably ever since Yoku Man in Mega Man Unlimited. People tend to call them disappearing blocks because they appear and disappear. And the disappearing part is not something that regular blocks do.

But yeah, most people call them disappearing blocks. I think even Roahm called them as such until fairly recently.

Reply Arcict Gray, April 29th, 2015, 10:06 am

I think I've always just called them "the blocks" or whatever. Anytime I can I look for a way to bypass them, I'm not really a good 'timing challenge' player and I find them at best annoying.

Reply Rbade, September 13th, 2015, 12:30 pm

I call the teleporting blocks because think about it, its always the same amount of blocks on the screen once the cycle starts.
