Variant of Chain Chomp

Red Chomps are red-colored Chain Chomps introduced in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They are the weaker variant of their black counterparts, and attack by lunging at their opponents in order to bite them.

Red Chomps are first seen in the Glitz Pit, during Chapter 3, as members of the Major League team called Chomp Country. Before the battle, a cake sent by Rawk Hawk is delivered to Mario's team, and if Mario decides to eat the cake, all of his partners will be unavailable for this battle due to the cake being poisoned. Their initial ranking is 2, but they eventually downgrade to Rank 3 after Mario's victory over them. Several Red Chomps can also be found in the Pit of 100 Trials, on floors 54 and 59. These enemies are immune to fire attacks and they have a high defense rating.

Red Chomps also appear in Super Paper Mario, and are found in the Castle Bleck Interior and inner sanctum. In Chapter 8-3, several Red Chomps are hiding in the basements. Unlike in the previous Paper Mario game, Red Chomps are actually stronger than regular Chain Chomps. One of the Underchomp trio is a fire-breathing Red Chomp.

In WarioWare: Touched!

A red Chomp appears in the souvenir "Reel-to-Reel" from WarioWare: Touched!.

A Red Chomp is featured in the Pyramid Park board of Mario Party 7. It is located on the left side of the board, and its palace is larger and more detailed than the huts that house the regular Chomps. It is also much less accessible than the other Chomps. For 10 coins, it will let a player use three Dice Blocks and ride on it, moving that many spaces around the board, whereas the other Chomps charge 30 coins for the same amount of dice, and offer only 1 Dice Block for the same amount of coins. If the Red Chomp manages to ram another player, a star is stolen from the victim and given to the player riding the Chomp.

Log A red, brutal Chain-Chomp. Attack and Defense are high. Rumor has it that it's so angry because someone painted it red while it was sleeping...
Tattle That's a Red Chomp. It's a rabid, red, biting, chewing, chomping fool! Max HP is 6, Attack is 5, and Defense is 3. Its attacks are so powerful, we could be in a world of hurt if we don't beat it fast! ...Which is why it's really, REALLY lame that its Defense is so high. Its HP is pretty low, though, so items and special moves might just work... Just look at that color! Think someone painted it after it fell asleep at a party?

Tattle That's a Red Chomp. This angry Chomp is filled with uncontrollable rage... Max HP is 8, Attack is 3, Defense is 8. Even flames won't hurt this beast... Some say this Chomp's red color comes from its urge to devour pizza sauce... Maybe someone let it loose in a sauce warehouse...
