The Controlled POW Explosion is an intermediate trick used in Super Mario Maker to control which objects are destroyed when a POW Block explodes.

Variations

Coins

A POW block will not destroy every coin onscreen at the same time. Instead, a wave is sent off from the explosion that will only destroy an object it touches. By timing the explosion, it is possible to control which objects are destroyed. However, objects such as Munchers are destroyed immediately.

Despawn

If a POW Block is thrown off screen at the correct location it is possible to cause the POW Block to explode and then immediately despawn before the wave touches any coins. Additionally, a POW Block's wave is not infinite and will also not be able to destroy coins that are far away.

Normal

Sideways Spring

If a POW Block is thrown off a sideways spring it will be unable to kill the next solid enemy it touches. This makes it possible to detonate a POW Block on top of a Thwomp without killing it.

Normal

Screen Freeze

Certain enemies are unable to be destroyed during a Screen Freeze, this includes Buzzy Beetles, Munchers, Rocky Wrenches, Spike Tops and Thwomps. Activating a POW during this time makes it possible to have a POW only kill certain enemies that are touching the ground.
