Wild Chomper is a Chomper variant encountered in the Far Wildlands. Unlike Chompers, they're rooted to the ground and are incapable of walking. Because of that, they use purely ranged attacks.
Their primary attacks are to spit Hard Seeds, targeting a random bug each time, and to cause thorny vines to thrust out of the ground under a single party member. On Hard Mode, they can also spit Danger Spuds - an attack similar to Hard Seed that also inflicts Poison on a failed block.
If left alone, the Wild Chomper will grow a small green Chomper variation to support it. It has 3 HP and deals 1 (2) damage per hit.
Wild Chompers are similar to Security Turrets, having high defense and using multi-hitting attacks, although they, being plants, are weak to Leif's ice attacks. Two Heavy Strikes or Frigid Coffins from the front row will take out this enemy, as will two full rounds of attacks from the party provided you have at least one damage boosting medal equipped among them. A Frozen Drill will destroy it in one shot with a damage boosting effect on either Leif or Kabbu, and has a good chance to Freeze it otherwise. Try to not leave a Wild Chomper alone, as it's Chomper spawn might be disruptive.
Spy Log Edit
|Bestiary||These Chompers have grown immobile so they can absorb the rich nutrients of the Far Grasslands.They've developed the ability to shoot seeds over great distances and extend their roots to strike and snare their prey. Otherwise, they lay with their mouths open in hopes some careless bug will fall into them.They are also capable of producing smaller Chompers like their Golden Hills counterparts, which will soon set root and become new Wild Chompers.|
|Vi||"Mmm... I don't have much to say. It's just an angry plant, really. Weak to ice and stuff. Nothing new. It does heal up, so we've gotta focus it down or it'll just get back up!"|
|Kabbu||"If only this creature would stop shooting seeds at us, we could walk past without a fight! Maybe if Leif manages to freeze it, we could just avoid it...?"|
|Leif||"Ain't this the living version of a Security Turret... Fortunately, this one's weak to ice. As long as we block its vines and seeds, it shouldn't be a challenge."|
- Wild Chompers are likely inspired by Piranha Plants from Paper Mario, as they have a similar design and are first encountered in a jungle area.
