Grille Chompas are a recurring enemy in the Banjo-Kazooie series.


Grille Chompas are large, eel[1] enemies that pop out of holes in walls to attack Banjo and Kazooie. Although they are eels, Grille Chompas have no association to the element of water.


In Banjo-Kazooie, Grille Chompas are found in many worlds such as Gruntilda's Lair, Clanker's Cavern, inside Loggo's sewer in Mad Monster Mansion (where a variant called Portrait Chompa is also introduced) and Rusty Bucket Bay. When exposed, they can be easily be defeated with many attacks such as the Rat-a-tat Rap.

In the Galley, there is a Grille Chompa who pops out of the fridge. Unlike the other Grille Chompas, it does not dwell within a hole in the wall.

The Big Cluckers in Click Clock Wood act very similar to Grille Chompas.

Grunty's Revenge[edit]

In Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, Grille Chompas are found in Bad Magic Bayou, Spiller's Harbor and inside Grunty Industries in the Freezing Furnace. They have different colors depending on the world they're in, being green or magenta in the first two and red in the last one.

They behave much like they did in Banjo-Kazooie, appearing from holes in the walls to attack Banjo and Kazooie and being vulnerable when exposed.
