Are these REALLY dogs? Has this been officialy stated? 3dejong

Well... they have dog-like personalities and were based off a dog attack to Shigeru... I'll have to add that they are dog-like, not dogs themselves.Knife (talk)

They're dogs. RUFF! User:Phailure

Well, Chomp is its own species and there are other kind of Chomps (eg Fire/Flame Chomps) which have nothing in common with dogs. However, Chain Chomp is inspired by dogs and has dog-like traits.

Is it Chain-Chomp (with a dash) or Chain Chomp (w/o dash)? Paper Jorge ( Need to tell me something? Go to my talk page.·Contributions·) 23:09, 7 November 2006 (EST)

I'm asking again: Is it Chain-Chomp (with a dash) or Chain Chomp (w/o dash)? Paper Jorge ( Need to tell me something? Go to my talk page.·Contributions·) 19:32, 14 November 2006 (EST)

I've always spelled it without one. Phoenix Rider 19:33, 14 November 2006 (EST)

They seem to use it inter-changably (was that spelled right?) in the games. Maxlover2 13:27, 18 February 2007 (EST) Ha! I signed!


Why'd you undo my edit? There was a proposal about Humorous Image Captions a while ago, and they became allowed! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU GK?!! ani_smwyoshimario.gifPhailure (Yapbox) (Contributions)616461558465c6ea5a3a8cym0.gif

Whoa dude, chill. Your caption wasn't humourous. Like, why would someone run away? Who are you telling to run? Are you talking to the reader? Because you're not supposed to do that. That's called "Referring to the reader directly". Besides, no offence, your caption wasn't humourous. :/ Marcelagus (TCE)

The quote says it's from Mario Party 5, but the game isn't in the article. Did Chain Chomps appear in Mario Party 5? (I don't have the game, so I don't know) Ashley pose SMM.png Mario JC

Chain Chomp Capsule. Hello, I'm Time Turner.


Do we REALLY need additionnal images? I mean, I think it has enough now to be honest. 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png


Should this be considered a Chain Chomp cameo? Here it is:[1]. Kinda creepy, huh? Wanwanwan...

Category:Animate Objects[edit]

Id like to know if most people would agree with me to put all Chain Chomp species in this category,since I am for it.--Swooper888 20:55, 26 November 2011 (EST)

They move on their own, so no. Bop1996 (Talk)
Yakkey is an animate object, Chain Chomps are a species, an animate object is anything that has no business being alive and is normally not alive like a trash can or a talking key. -Four Paper Heroes FourPaperHeroes.jpg 21:01, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Thwomps are a species and they have been in the animated objects category for a long time.Animated objects for the world that the Mario games take place in can also be things that are living rock for example,as in, in a full fledged species way.Also Bob1996,animated object does not just mean like if magic forces an object to move,it can also mean a living object that has a mind of its own like the piano in Mario 64.--Swooper888 23:21, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Well they are kind of moving metal dog things and metal is an object so yeah it kind of fits Raven Effect (talk)

Ill add them along with all their relatives and characters to the category once most people are fine with it.Also for the record,it be safe to not put any robots in the animated object category,they may technically count as an animated object but I think it looks the best having them just being in the robot category only.Chain Chomps I can tell are not machines,they are more of living metal then a robot and the same might be said for bob-ombs.(they seem more like living metal with a kind of magic windup key in their back then robots.) But Ill leave that for another debate.--Swooper888 23:33, 26 November 2011 (EST)

You should make a proposal. Mario4Ever

Alright--Swooper888 23:38, 26 November 2011 (EST)

I don't think they should. Animate objects can be found in inanimite form. I have never seen a Ball N' Chain with teeth before that isn't in a video game.

Mario Kart 64[edit]

The obstacles on Rainbow Road are not Chain Chomps, hence they are not on chains. Should we move the Mario Kart 64 section to Chomps? Jayt55 23:51, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Chain Chomp/Chainless Chomp[edit]

A lot of the sections of this article talk about Chainless Chomps. We should remove those sections, and, if they were not, put them into the Chomp article.

I just did it, and it was a mess. I hope I did it alright.
Banon (talk · edits) 15:28, 30 December 2012 (EST)


Should we add this?

If a Chain Chomp "yanks" on it's chain 49 times, it will break off the chain and be able to move freely. File:MushroomSMW.PNG MUSHROOM DOMAIN File:MushroomSMW.PNG 19:22, 5 February 2013 (EST)
Uh, where? BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
In the section on Super Mario Bros 3. And it's been added. User:FlashRenegade


Shouldn't this be updated?

Hi! I'm Shadow rocks!

Updated to what? Yoshi876 (talk)

Originally from Zelda?[edit]

I have heard that the Chain Chomp artwork originated from the zelda series, but was first used in Mario series. Is this true?

Iggy Koopa Jr (talk) 14:37, 25 August 2013 (EDT)

Yes it's true. MarioKart7player (talk) 19:06, 8 February 2015 (EST)

Super Mario Galaxy[edit]

May someone who knows the Galaxy games well-enough write about Chain Chomp's appearances in these games?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by FlashRenegade (talk).

They don't appear. Those are Chomps. They are not on chains.Toadbrigade5 (talk) 23:25, 29 June 2014 (EDT)
It's true they are 3 types of chomps in galaxy chomp, golden chomp, and chomp pup.Kamek64

Possible typo in the "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U" section.[edit]

Under the "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U" and Tips subsection the first tip is written as "If a platform that can break is broken with one of these chained to it, the Chain Chomp will fall of the stage as well." Should this have been "fall off the stage" or was the typo present in the actual game? If the latter, I feel there should be a `[sic]` beside it to indicate the error exists within the actual source.

According to SmashWiki, it's a typo. LinkTheLefty (talk) 07:50, January 25, 2020 (EST)
