The five Guardian Diggers are bosses in EarthBound, found in Dusty Dunes Desert's Gold Mine. They are greenish-blue palette swaps of the Mondo Mole, though their overworld sprite is just grey.

The Diggers each guard various gift boxes that contain different items. All five of them claim that they are the third strongest mole before they battle Ness and friends; they even share a unique battle background with the phrase No. 3 behind their in-battle sprite.


Guardian Diggers have a relatively low amount of HP, but start battle with a power shield that they can strengthen with Shield β; the moles will also claw or tear into their targets.

They are weak against PSI Freeze and PSI Flash, and can be defeated without even triggering the power shield.
