The Chain Chomp is an enemy in Super Mario 64 and
Super Mario 64 DS.

According to Shigeru Miyamoto (the creator of the Mario series),
the Chain Chomp was based on a dog, that scared him when he
was a child. This also explains why the Chain Chomp makes
dog-like barking noises.

Appearance Edit

The Chain Chomp is a big, black orb like enemy and almost thrice as tall as Mario. It sports two round eyes and a large mouth with sharp fangs. The inside of its mouth has a rose coloration and a human like tongue.

Locations Edit

The Chain Chomp only appears in Bob Omb Battlefield.

Attack Edit

Similar to a Boo, the Chain Chomp will try to ram into Mario, if he gets close.

If the Chain Chomp's attack is successful, Mario will lose 3 units of health, so the player should be especially careful around this type of enemy.

Luckily, the Chain Chomp kind of warns the player before attacking. It will hop around a few times and will start to make a noise similar to scissors cutting through the air.
It will make that "snip"-noise about 5 to 6 times before actually attacking, which will give the player time to react. This timer of sorts only counts from the point when the Chain Chomp faces Mario, so any other snipping from the Chain Chomp will be meaningless.
