Encountered in a level among many spike balls that form walls as the player traverses the level, this crusher block will come out of a side of the screen and proceed to ram into the player. It will move in linear paths, either horizontally or vertically. When it moves, it turns pink, its pinkness reverting to its regular blueness when it has finished moving.

It can move through the very spike balls that make up the walls of the level, and, even when the player is close, it will refuse to change its direction until it stops.
