Chomps Jr. are shark enemies who appear in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land. They are essentially a smaller version of Chomps.

Game appearances[edit]

Donkey Kong Country[edit]


Despite their name and smaller size, they are as threatening as a normal Chomps: contact with one injures a Kong, or Enguarde. They can be defeated if Enguarde stabs one with its sharp bill. They are found in all four underwater levels: Coral Capers, Clam City, Croctopus Chase, and Poison Pond.

Chomps Jr. is also a part of a short section of Donkey Kong Country's ending credits, where a Chomps Jr. pursues a Squidge across Donkey Kong's Treehouse, wanting to eat it. Afterwards, it flees from an angry group of four Squidges.

Donkey Kong Land[edit]

Chomps Jr. reappears in Donkey Kong Land, unlike Chomps. It has the same role from Donkey Kong Country. It cannot be defeated, because Enguarde does not reprise in Donkey Kong Land. They once again appear in four levels: Chomp's Coliseum, Nautilus Chase, Sky High Caper and Oil Drum Slum.

Chomps Jr. also seems to have unused sprites for dying. This suggests that it could have been defeated at some point in development.[1]

Donkey Kong Racing (cancelled)[edit]

Chomps Jr., along with Chomps, make a brief cameo in the E3 2001 trailer of the cancelled game Donkey Kong Racing. They are in the underwater scene where Tiny and Diddy race on Enguardes.
