Spore Chomps are plant enemies related to other Chomp types in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They appear in the Forest levels Clingy Swingy and Tippin' Totems. This Chomp variant stays on floors and ceilings and throws spores in five different directions at regular intervals, trying to hit enemies. When they are present on the floor, the Kongs can defeat them by roll and jump attacks.


Spore Chomps appear as a dark shade of yellow, and have eight visible holes from the side, which they fire spores out of. They have larger “lips” which is a common trait with the Chomp family. They have sharp, green leaves protruding from underneath them, that are more visible when they are upside down. Their lips also have a red hue near the bottom.
