Shroom Chomps are green carnivore plants related to other Chomp types in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They appear in the Forest levels Longshot Launch, Springy Spores and Wigglevine Wonders. This enemy type keeps its mouth open and displays a red protuberance of a tongue, trying to disguise it as a small mushroom. In some occasions, the Kongs must use the protuberance as a bouncy platform. But if the primates end swallowed by a Shroom Chomp, they can still get away harmlessly by quickly pounding the plant. These enemies cannot be harmed by any means.


The Shroom Chomp is green, has three leaves protruding from its "stump". It also has yellow dots over its body. It has four teeth, with two on each side from its tongue. Its tongue has a mushroom-like shape, and is mostly red, but is also yellow.
