Ragumo are mole enemies found in the Tree Zone of Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. To attack, the Ragumo will burrow underground and attempt to pop up in Mario's path. However, Mario can swiftly jump before the Ragumo pops up, thus landing a hit on its head. Fireballs can also be effective to defeat it, but only when the Ragumo has surfaced. Ragumo are usually found in low-lying areas, such as pits or ditches. They are likely based off Monty Moles due to their similar appearance and attack pattern and may be related to them,[1][2] but they are considerably slower.
