The Big Chomp and the Little Chomp are two Chain Chomps whose only appearance is in the Game Guy minigame Game Guy's Sweet Surprise from Mario Party 3.

In Game Guy's Sweet Surprise, the Big Chomp and the Little Chomp will each race to eat a cake, and the player must bet all their coins on whichever Chomp they think will finish first. The Big Chomp's payout will always double the player's coins, while the Little Chomp's payout will multiply their coins by either 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64. Picking the losing Chomp would result in the player losing all their coins.

Players can also read a description of both the Big Chomp and the Little Chomp's moods, taking them into consideration while making their selection. More often than not, the odds of the Big Chomp succeeding will be higher than the Little Chomp, due to its greater appetite. However, the Little Chomp will triumph over the Big Chomp on occasion.


Both Chain Chomps can say anything listed below.

These quotes are considered "good moods" and make them more likely to finish first:

  • "I'm so hungry I could faint..."
  • "I haven't eaten since this morning."
  • "Love that cake!"
  • "I'm starvin'!"
  • "Food! Food!!!"

These quotes are considered "bad moods" and make them less likely to finish first:

  • "No...more cake..."
  • "My tummy hurts..."
  • "It's too sweet..."
  • "I like mushrooms more than cake."
  • "Feed 'em faster!"
