Mawful Moles are Monty Mole-like enemies with a resemblance to Fawful in Blubble Lake in the game Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. Bowser can defeat these in the overworld by simply touching them, meaning Mario and Luigi can fight these enemies. They also have a dark version known as the Dark Mawful Mole.
They attack by throwing boulders at Mario and Luigi. This attack can be countered by a jump. If they get dirt on their faces, they miss and throw it above the bros., which can hurt Mario and Luigi if they jump. The moles may also "wink," showing which bro. they are attacking. This attack can be countered with the hammer, which can be done several times until the mole jumps over the selected bro. to fall on him.
