Not to be confused with the enemy Chain Chomp.
Chomps is one of several aquatic enemies in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land. Chomps appear in all aquatic levels except for Poison Pond. Chomps like to hunt in packs and usually appear staggered in certain open areas to form a 'blockade.' If Donkey and Diddy Kong have Enguarde the Swordfish, it can stab the Chomps to instantly defeat it. Whereas the Kongs must avoid it as they have no way to defeat it themselves.
Chomps was going to appear in the cancelled Donkey Kong Racing as many were seen swimming underwater.
