— Dialogue from Kirby's Avalanche.

Heavy Mole is a boss that debuts in Kirby's Adventure. It is a large, golden machine with a single eye, a missile launcher on its backside, and two extendable, mechanical arms with red spiked attachments on the end of each which allow it to dig through the ground with ease.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby's Adventure / Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land[edit]

Kirby battles Heavy Mole.

In Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, Heavy Mole appears as the boss of Yogurt Yard, the fifth level in the game, where it is fought underground. Kirby must stay on-screen during the boss sequence or he will lose all of his health instantly since the boss causes the stage to auto-scroll.

In its boss battle, Heavy Mole digs through the ground using its red spiked attachments, which damage Kirby if he runs into them. Sometimes, when digging up or down, Heavy Mole will launch a red or yellow missile from its backside at Kirby. If Kirby swallows a red missile, he will gain the Sleep ability; this is inherently dangerous due to the auto-scrolling arena. By swallowing the yellow one, however, Kirby will gain the Hammer ability, which can be used to attack the boss or dig through the ground. Defeating Heavy Mole causes it to explode, as well as changing the stage from its arena to a flat, featureless plain.

Kirby's Avalanche[edit]

— Kirby's Avalanche Instruction Booklet (North American print), page 23

In Kirby's Avalanche, Heavy Mole is the ninth boss fought (not counting the three "Lesson" bosses only fought in Easy mode). It focuses on destroying blobs quickly, instead of strategically forming chain reactions. Its AI is similar to Zoh Daimaoh from Puyo Puyo, but Heavy Mole does not shake the board.
