Chomp Thing is a Rare variant of the Chomper in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was introduced in the Legends of the Lawn DLC in Garden Warfare. His main ability is to regenerate health slightly faster than normal (in Garden Warfare)/ regenerating health almost immediately after taking damage (in Garden Warfare 2) and have a slightly increased regeneration speed.

In Garden Warfare 2, a single Chomp Thing appears as a boss in the "League of Awesome" quest, in which he has eaten Toxic Brainz and must be defeated in order to continue the said quest. Due to being a champion, he has more health than the average Chomp Thing (as he can withstand one ZPG shot without being vanquished).

Origins

His appearance and name are references to the DC Comics superhero Swamp Thing. The "Chomp" in place of "Swamp" in his name also refers to how he is a Chomper and how the two words rhyme.

Strategies

In the presence of the fast regeneration, Chomp Thing is a stealthy chomper, along with Count Chompula. Try to hide around corners, and attack the lone zombies or swallow zombies that are dragging behind in zombie groups. If you are forced into close quarters, flank and vanquish them quickly, then hide and regenerate your health. In Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, it is advised you to get the regeneration upgrade, for the quick regeneration time ability along with said upgrade results in quick recovery or escapes.
