Morty Moles[1] are a giant species related to Monty Moles that appear in Super Mario 3D Land. They resemble Mega Moles, but have a mahogany fur color, tan belly, do not wear sunglasses, and are susceptible to stomping.


Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

Mario stomping on a Morty Mole

Morty Moles inhabit levels such as World 5-4 and 7-4 along with Monty Moles. The moles are susceptible to stomping and are fought similarly to Rexes; they get shorter and faster after the first stomp, and are defeated on the second stomp. However, they will revert back to their regular size if they manage to hit Mario while they are short, or after a short time. A Ground Pound will defeat them in one hit. When defeated, Morty Moles will sometimes give Super Mushrooms.
