This island is home to all sorts of moles. They're mischievous as it gets. Watch your back!

Mole is an enemy in the Kirby series, debuting in Kirby Mass Attack.

Physical Appearance

Mole is a yellow or purple mole with black sunglasses and a small red nose. It has whiskers, two strands of hair, and rosy cheeks. It has three claws on the end of its hands. Its feet are small and it has a short rat-like tail.

Games

Kirby Mass Attack

Mole appears exclusively in Stage 6 of Green Grounds and Stage 5 of Volcano Valley. This enemy is one of Moley's minions. A few Moles hold signs with arrows, leading the Kirbys into an ambush. Once the heroes are trapped in Moley's domain, several Moles and Helmetmoles attack. This enemy emerges from a wall and holds up a bomb for a few moments before lobbing it at the Kirbys. It then disappears back into the wall. It can be taken down if the player flicks a Kirby into it when the enemy is out.

Some Moles snicker before attacking. The enemy also appears in the Field Frenzy and Kirby Brawlball sub-games. One pilots Robo Moley.

Etymology

Mole's Japanese name, モグモラ (Mogumora), comes from the Japanese word for mole, モグラ/もぐら/土竜 (mogura); and the English word for mole, モル (moru).

Trivia

  • Kirby Mass Attack’s memory contains unused tiny sprites of Mole. These sprites seem to suggest that the enemy was originally going to appear in the distance and throw bombs from there at some point in the game, possibly during the battle against Moley.[1]
