Bad Moles are recurring obstructions in the Legend of Zelda series. These small, red, smiling blocks usually group together to block Link's progress in a dungeon. They are usually only found within the confines of a building or dungeon.
Bad Moles can be found in various dungeons after the Palace of Darkness. After obtaining the Magic Hammer, Link is able to smash Bad Moles, allowing him passage to whatever area they were blocking. Smashed Bad Moles will stay depressed until Link exits the area.
Bad Moles are typically found in stages that take place in a dungeon or on the inside of a building. They can be depressed with the Magic Hammer.
Bad Moles appear in the Tower of Hera. Like in the game's predecessor, they can be pounded down with the Hammer. In this installment, however, they do not stay depressed; rather, they spring back up after a few seconds. Link can stand on top of these Bad Moles after hammering them down, and he will be launched into the air when they spring back up.
