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.

History

Donkey Kong Country

Chomps debut in the original Donkey Kong Country. Since there are not many water levels in DKC, there are not many Chomps to be found. Chomps are about as strong as any other aquatic foe, simply touching one will injure a Kong or Enguarde. Their sub-species, Chomps Jr., are more common in the water levels. Both can be defeated with a bill-stab from Enguarde.

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 of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. These could very well be Chomps.

Other

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 of a trailer for the canceled game, Donkey Kong Racing. 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.
