Flame Chomps are black metallic spheres with two beady white angry eyes and a big sharp-toothed open-mouthed smile. Several red fireballs follow it as a sort of "tail," starting at four and constantly going down depending on how many fireballs it has left.
Flame Chomps will constantly spawn in from off-screen, only one at a given time. They will float around, following the player while constantly stopping to shoot a fireball at them. After shooting four fireballs, the Flame Chomp will go in a sort of panic, quickly following the player before it explodes.
Flame Chomps can be defeated using a jump, Fire Flower's fireball, Hammer Suit's hammer, or Super Star. Ice Flowers' and Penguin Suits' iceballs freeze Flame Chomps temporarily, although they do not fall.
- In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, Flame Chomps go unused along with Bloopers, Blooper Nannies, and Thwomps (technically Big Thwomps go unused too, though they were reskinned into Rainbow Thwomps).
