Item description, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

The Fake Chomp,[1] originally known as the Chomp Shell, is a weapon for Bowser in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It is the empty shell of a Chain Chomp, though a localization mistake causes the description to mention Chaindeliers instead. It acts as a weaker version of the Chain Chomp Bowser can recruit from Booster Tower by solving the Elder Key puzzle. To attack with it, Bowser swings it as a flail before throwing it at an enemy. A timed hit can be performed by pressing the button as the shell hits an enemy, boosting the attack power slightly. The Fake Chomp has an attack power of nine points with a random variation of up to three points above and below. It can be bought from the shop in the Marrymore hotel for 60 coins.
