Monty Moles (チョロプー) are enemies that appear in several Mario games, including a few sidescrollers such as Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U. They later reappear in Super Mario 64, Paper Mario, and other recent titles.
Monty Moles are one of the major species in the Mario series. The moles tend to make their home underground. They are common obstacles in the series and usually must be cleared by still whacking them on the head. They made their debut in Super Mario World and pop out of random places in the ground in this game. Monty Moles could charge at Mario or Luigi, to attack. There exists a sub-species of Monty Moles, called Mega Moles, which the player can ride on. Monty Moles can be defeated with any attack in Super Mario World, and can also be eaten by Yoshi.
