The POW Block makes its debut in the Dry Bones Kart series as a new item in ''[[Dry Bones Kart Wii]]''. It is a common pull in an [[Item Box]], and players can obtain this item if they are anywhere from 6th to 12th place (due to 16 racers). When dispatched by a player, all racers ahead of the user finds POW Blocks above their karts. The POW Block makes players spin out in a similar way to that caused by a [[Banana Peel]], except that they lose all of their current items and they come to a complete stop if it hits them. Players will not be affected by the POW Block if the third strike goes off while they are in mid-air. Players can also avoid it by starting a wheelie, or shaking their controller (like doing a jump trick) right when the third strike goes off. By doing this, they still spin out and lose items, but retain their momentum. It is also possible to avoid it by doing a hop right at the third strike but requires perfect timing. When players have a [[Starman]], [[Mega Mushroom]], or [[Bullet Bill]] activated, they will not get affected by the POW Block.

The POW Block, as it appears in Dry Bones Kart Wii.

The POW Block makes its debut in the Dry Bones Kart series as a new item in Dry Bones Kart Wii. It is a common pull in an Item Box, and players can obtain this item if they are anywhere from 6th to 10th place (due to 16 racers). When dispatched by a player, all racers ahead of the user finds POW Blocks above their karts. The POW Block makes players spin out in a similar way to that caused by a Banana Peel, except that they lose all of their current items and they come to a complete stop if it hits them. Players will not be affected by the POW Block if the third strike goes off while they are in mid-air. Players can also avoid it by starting a wheelie, or shaking their controller (like doing a jump trick) right when the third strike goes off. By doing this, they still spin out and lose items, but retain their momentum. It is also possible to avoid it by doing a hop right at the third strike but requires perfect timing. When players have a StarmanMega Mushroom, or Bullet Bill activated, they will not get affected by the POW Block.

Trading Card Info

Description: "The POW Block isn't a new concept on the Koopa Island (think Super Koopa Bros. 3), but it is a brand new item for the Dry Bones Kart series. If you're lucky enough to get this item, activate it and the POW Block appears over the heads of all other racers. When it disappears after about 5 seconds...POW! Everyone (but you) spins out and stops, allowing you to gain some ground."

Game Tip!: "The POWerful effects of this dangerous item can be avoided. The secret is that you have to be off the ground when the POW Block unleashes its power."
