  • Camping Episode: Episode 4 is about the main characters going out and camping outside.
  • Canon Foreigner: The movies have several.

  • The Cape: Mole Man is a good, heroic superhero who fights Kula and makes sure that justice always prevails over evil.
  • Character in the Logo: Mole Man is featured in the logo for Mole Kart.

  • Fansub: Fans have subbed some episodes into English.
  • Flight: Mole Man can use his cape to fly.

  • Funny Animal: All of the moles act humanlike.
  • Gag Nose: The moles all have huge red noses as part of their cute design.
  • Gratuitous English: The logos might incorporate a bit of English, such as the Chinese logo for the first movie having Legend of the Moles — The Frozen Horror written in English.
  • Groin Attack: Kula is on the receiving end of one in episode 25, season 3. Executed from above after the attacker (Xiaoxiao) had jumped very high up for a boost from gravity, no less. Ow.

  • Shoddy Knockoff Product: Mole Kart is a Chinese ripoff of Mario Kart Wii, though it's less of a shoddy knockoff and more outright thievery. It is quite literally a texture hack of Mario Kart Wii being sold on the app store, complete with the exact same tracks (with minor texture edits to remove Mario references), the exact same items, and likely everything else the same as well.
  • Shaped Like Itself: The theme song points out that there are two curved curves on Molele's face. As opposed to straight curves.
  • Shout-Out: Mole Kart features some references to the gameplay of the Mario Kart games and their tracks.
