A tilt weight in Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

A tilt weight[conjectural title] is an object which debuted in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It consists of an eight ton weight attached to a rope, similar to a String Platform, though it is also attached to a slider and can be re-positioned when the player tilts the Nintendo 3DS system. A variant of this object also appears in Kirby: Planet Robobot, though it is held up by a chain instead.

These objects appear in side-chambers in many stages. When Kirby cuts the string using a Copy Ability capable of doing so (such as Sword or Spear), the weight falls, crashing through any breakable blocks below. The weight can destroy a Crystalline Block if it lands on top, but will simply break if it hits hard ground or a Gate. A tilt weight will reset if Kirby leaves the room and comes back.
