History[edit]

Mario Hoops 3-on-3[edit]

In Mario Hoops 3-on-3, ? Panels are scattered across the game's various basketball courts. When a player on offense dribbles the ball over a ? Panel, they typically acquire Coins used to boost points, in which case the ? Panel glows when each coin is collected per dribble on them; they may also receive an item that pops out from them. Unlike Super Mario Kart, a ? Panel disappears when it is deactivated. A player on defense always receives a special item if they run over one of these panels. Fake ? Panels also appear in the game and can be used to trip up other players. Purple ? Panels appear in the Jr. Street stage when one of the spotlights shines on the ? Panel. Those contain Slot Coins.

Mario Sports Mix[edit]

In Mario Sports Mix, ? Panels have the same effect as in Mario Hoops 3-on-3.
