|This article is about a/an monster in Kamen Rider, the original series.|
Molung (モグラング Mogurangu, 28, 37, 41 & Rider vs Shocker) – A mole monster. The emblem worn by the Combatants of the base that created it was a curved horned mole. He is able to move underground by digging quickly, with one of its hands replaced by a shovel while the other was a large claw. He was also equipped with two electro-eyes, which allow him to spy from the underground. He kidnapped a large number of people to turn them into mole-people, but his operations were discovered by Rider 2. Using his digging abilities, Molung was able to defeat and capture Rider 2. However, Hayato escaped, and, in their rematch, Molung faced Rider 2 on top of a building. He was defeated by Kamen Rider 2's Rider Kick which caused him to fall onto a cement tank.
Molung was back in action later, episode 37, participating in an operation to kidnap children and test killer plants on them. However, Kazuya Taki saved the kids and activated the killer plants on Molung and his companions, destroying them.
Molung later returned under Doctor Death, working alongside Armadillong to capture Kamen Rider 1. Even with their combined efforts, they could not beat Kamen Rider 1 but attracted him to Ghostar, who captured him.
Molung returned yet again in Kamen Rider vs. Shocker, where he helped Fly Man and Cactogron face Kamen Rider 2. Molung appeared from rocks around Kamen Rider 2 and attacked, but was quickly destroyed when Kamen Rider 2 threw one of Cactogron's bombs back to them.
