Overview[edit | edit source]

Hard mode retains all of the mechanics of normal mode (including the mole's stats). However, all four chambers' effects are modified:

Mini-Moles[edit | edit source]

The giant mole spawns moles at a faster rate, and they also increase her Strength, resulting in a higher max hit.

Upheaval/Rubble[edit | edit source]

Damage is doubled from 200 to 400 hard typeless damage, and she dives twice instead of once.

Rockfall[edit | edit source]

Damage from the mole breaking the player out of the mud prison is increased to over 3,000 damage, and the resulting mud prison cannot be canceled with Freedom or Anticipation beforehand.

Berserk[edit | edit source]

The mole's damage is increased significantly.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Many of normal mode's strategies can be applied on hard mode. It is recommended that players start hard mode only after having 70+ combat stats and equipment, due to the emphasis on a much more faster fight to avoid potentially deadly combos on the final phase, as she often combines her rockfall with either berserk or upheaval mechanics for massive damage.
