[[Block clip|Block Clipping]] is a glitch when pushable blocks that usually act as a solid object will allow projectiles to pass through them during the moving animation. Additionally, [[Mirror Block Erase]] is a glitch using the [[Magic Mirror]] during the moving animation will just erase the block completely.
  
Typically when inside dungeons or caves pushable blocks act as a solid object that can block the range of items such as Hookshot or Fire Rod. However, when Link pushes a block there is a short period of time where the moving block is no longer considered a solid object and these items can pass though the block while it is in motion.
