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 first seen in the Vine Valley level of the Forest world of Donkey Kong Island. The Vine Chomp stays hidden behind leaves at the top of the screen, leaving an unsuspected long vine for its prey to grab. If the Kongs 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 can pound quickly and go away harmlessly. Vine Chomps can be defeated only by throwing barrels.


The Vine Chomp is blue in color, has six leaves around it, and has light blue dots over its body. It is much shorter and plumper than the other Chomps, and has no teeth, like the Spore Chomp
