Monty Mole
Sprite of a green Monty Mole, from Paper Mario.
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)
Variant of Monty Mole
“Now these Monty Moles dig into the ground and bite my roots! Oh, woe is me!”
Petunia, Paper Mario

Monty Moles are found in Flower Fields in Paper Mario. They are green in color and stronger than regular Monty Moles, which appear at Mt. Rugged in the same game. Despite their differences, the two species are both simply called "Monty Moles". However, the Flower Fields variety was given a unique name in Japanese.

Mario encounters these Monty Moles when he goes to see Petunia, who tells him they are digging up the ground where she lives, eating her seeds and biting her roots. At her behest, Mario defeats all the Monty Moles. When they are defeated, they occasionally drop a Honey Syrup. After defeating them all, Mario receives the Magical Bean from Petunia as thanks.

These Monty Moles have a specific weakness to the Hammer Throw attack, which will deal 3 more damage than a normal hammer strike. They are the only enemies in the entire game with this weakness.[1] If Mario or one of his partners attempts to First Strike a Monty Mole before talking to Petunia for the first time, they hide underground and dodge the attack.

Tattle This is a Monty Mole. You remember Monty Moles from Mt. Rugged, don't you? Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 0 They're vicious rock-throwers. They may look intimidating but they're not very strong.
  • Official Nintendo Player's Guide: You'll encounter Monty Mole again in Petunia's garden, and eating all those tasty roots has been good for him. His Heart Points are much higher than the Monty Moles on Mt. Rugged, but luckily for Mario his attack remains rather weak.[2]
