Chomp (Donkey Kong enemy)
Chomps are carnivorous plant-like enemies that first appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its remake, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They first appear in the second level of the Jungle world, King of Cling, and later in the Forest world. Most of them jump up and try to bite Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong, taking away one heart if they reach the primates.
Chomps, although much more vulnerable and displaying a different appearance, are present in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Here, they generally have a pear-shaped head dressed with crowns of leaves, and also very thick, cartoony lips that cover their teeth. The game only offers two types of Chomps:
Chomps greatly resemble the Piranha Plants of the Mario series. In fact, some Chomps, along with other elements from the Donkey Kong Country series, made it out in the DK Jungle golf course of Mario Golf: World Tour. They function not only as decorative objects, but also as hindrance for the golf ball. They are preponderantly present at Hole 6, where there is also a Mega Chomp.
