A Chomp Bro without its Chain Chomp in both versions.

The Chomp Bro is a large, muscular version of Hammer Bros. wielding a Chain Chomp as a weapon. They are encountered in Bowser's Castle in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They do not appear in the overworld, and are only encountered with Boos and Magikoopas. They attack by throwing their Chain Chomps at either Mario or Luigi. During a battle, if the Chomp Bro spins its Chain Chomp clockwise, it will be thrown at Mario; if counter-clockwise, it is targeting Luigi. The number of times they spin around determines how fast the attack will be. If Mario or Luigi jump on the Chain Chomp when it is thrown, it will fall off the screen, leaving the Chomp Bro defenseless. Sometimes, Chomp Bros. will run away crying from the battle when they are unaccompanied by a Chain Chomp. Other times, the Chain Chomp may return to them, restarting the process. Additionally, in the original GameBoy Advance release of the game, Chomp Bros. are healed by Firebrand and take critical damage from Thunderhand.

Chomp Bros. are likely based on hammer throw athletes, due to their muscular appearance and how they throw their Chain Chomps, which resemble the balls used in the hammer throw.

In the remake, they wear shoes and no longer wear a belt or have an arm tattoo.
