Monty Moles are small creatures that hide in the ground and in mountains, waiting for Mario or Luigi to approach them. Before they pop up out of the ground, they cause the dirt in the ground and on the mountain walls to crumble, giving away their location. They then pop out of the ground, and follow Mario and Luigi wherever they walk until they are outrun or they fall off the stage. Also, if Mario or Luigi outruns a Monty Mole, but then returns to the area where it popped out of, another Monty Mole will spawn from the same hole the first one jumped out of.
