Chomps are large carnivorous plant enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. In the game, they appear in the Jungle level, King of Cling and later the Forest area. They look like Piranha Plants from the Mario series.
Chomps attack by popping out of the ground or walls every few seconds and then they will try to bite the player while some shoot projectiles. The player can jump on top of the shooting Chomps to dispose of them. While the player can jump on the green Chomps when their mouths are closed, it doesn't defeat them. The red Chomps will always cause damage and can only be defeated by barrels. They come in different shapes and sizes.
The Mega Chomp is an enemy found in King of Cling, a level in the Jungle world. They resemble larger versions of regular Chomps. They have a few leaves instead of a vine, making it more of a bud than resembling a normal Chomp. They will shortly wait and leap up towards the ceiling, injuring a Kong.
