Vine Chomps are blue carnivorous plants related to other Chomp types in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are enemies that will try to devour the Kongs if they grab on their vines.


Vine Chomps are seen in Vine Valley and Wigglevine Wonders, both levels of the Forest world of the Donkey Kong Island. The very first Vine Chomp in both games stays hidden behind leaves at the top of the screen, leaving an unsuspected long vine for its prey to grab. If the primates hold the vine, the Vine Chomp will reveal itself, pulling in the primates slowly and attempting to eat them. If the heroes end up getting swallowed by one, they must pound quickly in order to go away harmlessly. Vine Chomps can be defeated only by the Kongs throwing barrels at them.

Physical Appearance

Vine Chomps are blue in color, have six leaves around them, and have light blue dots over their bodies. They are much shorter and plumper than the other Chomps, and have no teeth, like the Spore Chomps
