Chomping Frenzy is an extra minigame in Mario Party 8 that is available to buy from the Fun Bazaar with 50 Carnival Cards. It can only be played in the Extras Zone. The minigame's name is a pun on "feeding frenzy".


The player runs up to a food launching cannon positioned in front of two Chain Chomps inside a barn.


In this one player minigame, the object is to feed all the Chain Chomps before they become red, break out and attack the player. The player must throw several out of a variety of items before the Chain Chomps fall asleep. Each Chain Chomp asks for a specific item, and the correct item must be thrown to be effective. The items include an apple, an orange, a banana, a cherry and a bone.


If any one of the Chain Chomps turns completely red, it jumps forward, knocks the cannon out of the way, and attacks the player, ending the game.
