Moley is a boss from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, as well as a mini-boss from Kirby Mass Attack.


Sprite from The Amazing Mirror

Moley resembles a large, gray mole with glasses and an orange neckerchief. It is unknown what Moley's bottom half looks like, as it is never seen.

In Kirby: Squeak Squad, a boss named Mrs. Moley appears, who looks and behaves similarly to Moley. However, a canonical relation between the two is never established.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, similar enemies called Mowlee Bros. appear. The relation between these moles and Moley is also unknown.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Moley is found in Cabbage Cavern, where it guards the Mirror Shard. Moley hides in six holes (three on the ceiling and three on the ground) and periodically pops out of a random one, sending junk everywhere as his main attack.

Some of the junk gives a Copy Ability when inhaled and swallowed, while some do not. The following lists every kind of junk he throws (with yielding Copy Ability if any in the brackets):

Moley has 80 HP (a Star Bullet does 10).

Kirby Mass Attack[edit]

In Kirby Mass Attack, Moley is the mini-boss of the sixth stage of Green Grounds. The fight with him has 3 phases. In the first phase, Kirby must defeat the 4 moles that appear. In the second phase, four smaller moles will appear; however, two will be wearing spiked helmets and can't be harmed. Kirby must first defeat the two moles lacking helmets, to make the other two appear without their helmets, and become vulnerable. In the final phase, Moley itself appears, accompanied by two smaller moles, both wearing spiked helmets. Kirby must defeat Moley to win the battle.

Moley also appears in Field Frenzy the Sub-Game.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Moley appears as a Support Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, using his Kirby Mass Attack artwork. He is ranked ★ Novice, costs 1 slot and has the skill of equpping the fighter with a Drill.
