Molers are minor enemies in Shovel Knight. They appear in most stages, hidden in Dig Piles. They resemble moles with large clawed arms and tiny legs.


Molers appear in various stages when digging up specific Dig Piles. When uncovered, they skitter back and forth and will damage the protagonist nearby. They posses only one hit point and deal half a damage point. They do not drop any treasures when defeated, expect the occasional jar. They are found in the Lich Yard Encounter, The Stranded Ship, the Tower of Fate: Entrance, the Lost City and the Frigid Flight relic course.


  • A group of Molers carry away Mole Knight after defeating him.
  • Molers' model in the game's files is named "Troll Mole".
