Chomps are a species of generic shark-like fish, found in the underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country. They live on Donkey Kong Island. Chomps are big and quite fearsome, though slow and are not common.
 Donkey Kong Country/Land
Chomps debut in the original Donkey Kong Country. Since there are not many water levels in Donkey Kong Country, there are not many Chomps to be found. Chomps are about as strong as any other aquatic foe, simply touching one injures a Kong or Enguarde. Their sub-species, Chomps Jr., are more common in the water levels. Both can be defeated with a stab from Enguarde.
Chomps reappears in Donkey Kong Land. They have no recognizable differences and therefore remain the same.
 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
Chomps, as with the other underwater enemies in Donkey Kong Country, do not return in the game's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, though similar shark-like fish seem to attack Kaptain K. Rool in the ending for Donkey Kong Country 2. Chomps may have migrated there from DK Island, since it does not appear to be very far from Crocodile Isle.
In the comic "Donkey Kong Country," two Chomps try to attack Donkey and Diddy. They are supposedly a part of the "Chomp Police". This seems to be a self-promoted position, seeing the other underwater creature's opposition to them.
Chomps have not made other appearances aside from several of them seen swimming around in the background in a piece of a trailer for the cancelled game, Donkey Kong Racing in the scene where Diddy and Tiny were on Enguardes (one of them being purple).
In Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, a more threatening looking shark resembling Chomps appears in an underwater race course as an obstacle. A similar, but much less cartoon-like shark appeared in one of Donkey Kong Country Returns's water levels.
