Death Chompers are car-sized creatures that serve as mini-bosses in the Corpse of the Behemoth level. These creatures are not part of the Behemoth but were conjured up by the Necromancer to serve as gate guards. The Mushroom Kingdom Coalition encounters three of these hideous beasts in the vena cava area of Corpse of the Behemoth.
These ugly creatures resemble a huge gray balloon with a mouth full of sharp teeth. They also have sharp spikes as a means of defense, rendering them immune to physical contact.
Death Chompers patrol a set path above the ground. They spit out large Grubs to attack potential intruders. These Grubs can be picked up and tossed back at the Death Chompers. While the victims are preoccupied with the Grubs, the Death Chompers will fire a five-way spread of fireballs into the fray. Each Death Chomper holds a key that unlocks nearby gates.
