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 Mirror during the moving animation will just erase the block completely.

Execution

Repeatedly press Y while using the Hookshot, Fire Rod, or Mirror while a pushable block is moving.

Uses and Examples

Hookshot

Using the Hookshot while a block in moving can let Link travel though the block by grappling to something on the other side. Some examples of locations where this can be useful include:

  • Accessing the Ice Palace Big Chest without dropping down.
  • Traveling through Superbunny Cave more quickly
  • Getting the item inside the Dam and draining the swamp in a single trip.
  • Skipping a block push after Moldorm2
  • Small time saves in push blocks in Left Side Swamp and GT Firesnake Room
