The Rock Mole is an armoured excavation vehicle used by the Ptolemaic Army for offense. It made its first debut in the Metal Slug Attack event "Task Force 1st", where the boss can also become a playable unit.
The Ptolemaic army is reusing this excavation equipment abandoned in a tunnel as a weapon. It flings massive boulders using a claw-style shovel. It can also seek enemies using a searchlight in dark locations.
- ~Metal Slug Attack in-game description.
The Rock Mole is operated by a Ptolemaic Special Forces commander (the one seen operating the Wall Crawler in Metal Slug 5). He drives the Rock Mole to the nearest enemy, before he begins digging up dirt and rocks from below with its claws to damage enemies.
The special attack of the Rock Mole prompts the commander to use its claws to crouch and grab a massive boulder before rapidly slashing it with its claws, dealing massive damage to anyone caught in its radius. The boulder then shatters from the numerous slashes, sending fragments of rock everywhere in the process for additional damage.
It is also equipped with self-healing technology, and its plating also allows it to take reduced damage from all attacks, further extending its durability.

|Rock Mole MK II: A variant of the Rock Mole, now painted deep purple. It specializes as a ranged fighter, clawing away at a large boulder it excavates from the ground, flinging the shards at enemies.|
