Mole Hole is the sixth of the seven stages in Grass Land in Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn, and is the first EX stage. This stage first introduces the Digger Metamortex transformation, as Kirby tunnels through the ground beneath Grass Land. To unlock this stage, a Mole Patch from Fangora must be obtained by collecting at least 1100 beads during the fight.

Upon clearing the stage for the first time, the Firecracker Patch is obtained, allowing access to the next stage, Weird Woods.

Patch animation[edit]

After throwing the Mole Patch, it settles into a dedicated slot and an animation of a mole digging away brown wool below the level. The yarn above it falls down, giving access to the door.


The stage revolves around the Digger Metamortex transformation, as it is covered entirely in soft soil (in the form of dirty cotton) that is capable of being drilled. Kirby uses the Digger until the end of the stage, starting at the surface (near a vegetable patch) and eventually reaching the Reel Gate deep underground. As he descends, beads can be found in the soil, often hidden behind it.

Following a trail of beads in the dirt

Kirby must be careful when digging, particularly around Denim Blocks, as these can crush him if he isn't careful. However, if used carefully, they can dispatch the various Candlemanders that crawl around and provide access to alternate paths. Along the way, Kirby encounters large, purple rocks which hide doors behind them, leading to treasures and more beads. If Kirby clears away much of the soft soil, he can find artwork showing Prince Fluff- and Cappy-looking individuals collecting and cooking food.

It’s full of vitamins, but it just might turn your clothes orange! A short way down, there is a background path with beads of many colors lining it, blocked by a crystal obstruction. Kirby needs to clear away the obstruction and then take the path to reach this treasure.
KEY Furniture Tree-Stump Bed.png
Tree-Stump Bed
Squirrels and lumberjacks can relax here peacefully. Just not at the same time! This treasure can be found in a small pocket within the diggable fluff a few paces above the Reel Gate at the bottom of the stage.

  • Mole Hole is one of two stages featuring hidden artwork behind the cotton, the other being Cool Cave.
    • In this stage, we see a crownless Prince Fluff (likely meant to be an ancestor) thinking of food, finding a giant vegetable, and digging it up. Other figures join him, carrying other giant vegetables, and we see them cooking something. At the end of the stage, the dish that the Prince Fluff look-alike was thinking of in the first drawing is realized with giant proportions, much to his delight and that of the figures who helped him.
    • Other drawings include several vegetables and a Dom Woole look-alike wearing a chef hat next to a heart.
