Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Mountain gnomes are weak humanoid creatures that appear on mountainous maps. If you leave food or booze out in the open, they will steal it, leaving your dwarves dying of starvation and dehydration, but otherwise they are "harmless", will flee from your dwarves if confronted (to the point of being pushed off a cliff if necessary), and are easily killed. They can be killed by even unarmed, untrained dwarves; a drafted woodsman will make short work of even a pack of them.

Mountain gnomes do not generally carry equipment. They cannot be butchered, and drop three bones and a skull when killed. Despite its name, Gnomeblight does not appear to have any effect on them.

The only difference between mountain gnomes and dark gnomes is that dark gnomes have the [EVIL] tag instead of [GOOD] and are [NOCTURNAL] instead of [DIURNAL]. Therefore, it makes little sense that dark gnomes are stronger than mountain gnomes.
