A Mole Guard as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns
|First Appearance||Donkey Kong Country Returns|
|Home||Donkey Kong Island|
|Enemies|| Donkey Kong|
Mole Guards are similar to the Mole Miner enemy in almost every way besides the fact that they only show up in mine cart-based levels of the Cave world, riding alongside Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong's path, attempting to sabotage their ride with track-blasting bombs and other dirty tricks. The basic form of attack that the Mole Guard shells out is running into your mine cart as they travel into you from the opposite direction. All such a dangerous situation calls for is a well-timed jump, which not only dodges these pesky enemies, but could also knock them right off the track should you happen to land on top of them in the process.
Mole Guards look exactly like Mole Miners save for the fact that they're only found riding around in mine carts found in mine cart-based levels, similar to the Krashes found in the original Donkey Kong Country.
