Variant of Chomp

Mega Chomps[citation needed] are red carnivorous plant enemies which first appear in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are a variety of Chomp and appear very rarely throughout the game. Mega Chomps only appear in the levels King of Cling and the Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D exclusive level, Crushin' Columns.

Mega Chomps are much larger than other Chomps. They have leaves instead of a vine, and possess spikes on their body. These enemies attack by leaping up towards the Kongs, attempting to injure them. Mega Chomps cannot be defeated by jumping on them and can only be defeated by throwing barrels at them. Additionally, the Mega Chomps attack faster than the other species of Chomps.

As with its smaller cousins, a single Mega Chomp appears in Mario Golf: World Tour. It adopts the same behavioral aspect and vertical position seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns, and it now hinders the ball hit and thrown by the player. The Mega Chomp is located around Hole 6 of DK Jungle.
