Vine Chomps are carnivorous plant enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are blue, medium-sized variant of Chomps with a tongue in the shape of a vine. Vine Chomps only appear in some vine levels of the Forest world, and their first level appearance is Vine Valley.
Vine Chomps always appear on the ceiling where they hide behind some leaves while sticking their tongue down. When the Kongs grab its tongue, the Vine Chomp slowly pulls the tongue back to its mouth, attempting to eat the Kongs. Its tongue is necessary for progressing higher into the level, and the Kongs must quickly get off its tongue to avoid being eaten. If it does, although a prompt does not appear to indicate this like with Shroom Chomps, the player is able to force the Kongs out by shaking the controller (pressing or repeatedly in the 3DS version). If successful, the Kongs escape unharmed; otherwise, after a period of time, the Vine Chomp spits them out and they lose a heart. Vine Chomps cannot be defeated by any attack.
