Chomps are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They first appear in the second level of the Jungle (Donkey Kong Country Returns), King of Cling, and later appear as common enemies in the Forest (Donkey Kong Country Returns) along with their four sub-species. Chomps are carnivorous plant enemies that greatly resemble Piranha Plants in the Mario series. However, they have spikes on their faces. They usually just snap constantly and jump and snap repeatedly taking away a Heart if they touch the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong). Chomps are red and yellow and are the most common out of all sub-species. Yellow Chomps, however, delay the attack. Chomps can be defeated by throwing a Barrel at them.
