A list of destructible structures in Rubble Trouble.
Destructible structures are usually civilian buildings that appear next to the places that the demolition crew are assigned to. The buildings will be destroyed if anything falls on them, and the player will have lose some money they earned and enrage the boss. Buildings are always placed on the ground, never on top of destructible structures.
Usually, destroying a civilian building causes the player to have to reset the level, as destruction of a building will usually cause the player to lose so much money that the lost money cannot be regained. Although this is the case in all levels, level 29 of Rubble Trouble has a glitch that allows the player to continue the level even though they destroy a civilian building (and will sometimes incorrectly glitch and force the player to restart the level).
Starting with Rubble Trouble Tokyo, most destructible structures are accompanied by around one to three characters, usually human. Although destructible structures do not have any effect on the level they are in, the Big Bang Fireworks main building and Big Bang Fireworks warehouse are an exception, as both structures will let off missiles when destroyed.
