The Paper Macho Chain Chomp is an enemy in Paper Mario: The Origami King, a type of Paper Macho Soldier. It is never fought directly, and is never even defeated. It instead serves as an obstacle in Spring of Jungle Mist.

As Mario, Olivia, Kamek and Bowser Jr. progress through the jungle, they hear rustling from the nearby bushes. Later, the Paper Macho Chain Chomp lunges out at the party as they jump across two ledges and eats the two Ptooies underneath. The party suspects that the Paper Macho Chain Chomp was the source of the rustling.

Later, the party must choose between three different paths. If Mario chooses the wrong paths led by Bowser Jr. or Olivia, the party will arrive at a dead end, at which point the Paper Macho Chain Chomp lunges out and instantly defeats Mario. If Mario chooses the right path led by Kamek, the Paper Macho Chain Chomp chases the party upon entering, but gets stuck under a low branch.

As the party climb the giant tree, the Paper Macho Chain Chomp pursues them once again. Kamek spots it climbing a ladder and immediately starts running. Mario manages to outrun the Paper Macho Chain Chomp to the next ladder, narrowly missing him. The Paper Macho Chain Chomp reappears on the next layer eating a Fire Piranha Plant and chases the party to a vine which they use to escape from the tree and swing to the nearby floating island, at which point the Paper Macho Chain Chomp falls back down. It is not seen again for the rest of the game.

When the Paper Macho Chain Chomp chases Mario, getting caught will cause an instant Game Over.
