This beast frequently appears in the Super Mario series, and it is definitely equal parts bark and bite. No surprise it's often chained to something. In Smash Bros., it's connected to a stump in the ground and will lash out at anyone who gets close. Don't even bother trying to teach it manners. (American English)
An iron ball with a face, complete with shiny white teeth, that shows up fairly often in the Mario series. They're impossible to tame, so they're almost always chained to a post, and this game's no exception. Seriously, don't go anywhere near them unless you want to end up a Chomp's dinner. (British English)
  • Tips
    • "If a platform that can break is broken with one of these chained to it, the Chain Chomp will fall off the stage as well."
    • "If a Chain Chomp falls off the stage, it'll just jump straight back up!"
    • "A Chain Chomp's chomp will deal more damage than just touching one. Be careful, though; even chained up, they've got a long range."

Tattle It's a Chomp. You've heard about Chomps before, I'm sure. Max HP: 4, Attack Power: 3, Defense Power: 3 They're made of such hard stuff that most of your attacks won't even faze them. I heard a rumor that the Chomps are a little peeved at Tutankoopa because he works them so hard.

Tattle Log #:
Log It's tough to damage this creature, but it has somewhat low HP, so it's possible to take it out with one decisive blow.
Tattle That's a Chain-Chomp. I'd hate to get chomped by those teeth. They look nasty. Max HP is 7, Attack is 6, and Defense is 5. Its body is hard, so most attacks won't do much. Plus, you can't damage it with fire and ice attacks. You can freeze it, though. Luckily, it has low HP, so you could take it down with a special move or an item. Chomp-Chomps are like, so super-pumped all the time. Don't they ever get tired?
