Chomps Jr. are smaller versions of a regular Chomps. They are shark-like fish that are common in most water levels in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land.


Donkey Kong Country

Despite being called Chomps Jr. and appearing smaller, they are just as threatening as a regular Chomp; contact with one will defeat a Kong, or Enguarde if a Kong is riding him. They are defeated the same way as well, with a stab of Enguarde's sharp nose.

Chomps Jr. is also a part of a short, humorous section in Donkey Kong Country's ending credits, where one Chomps Jr. would chase a Squidge around DK's Treehouse hoping to eat it, but later flee from an angry group of four Squidges chasing it back.


Chomps Jr., along with Chomps, are found in a trailer for Donkey Kong Racing, which was canceled. This trailer cameo possibly suggested Chomps Jr., along with Chomps, may have been rideable in the game.
