- “Who better to find treasure than a chest with teeth?”
- —Villain Vault
Chomp Chest is a living treasure chest who is one of the trappable Earth villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He is found on an isolated island in Monster Marsh disguising as an inanimate treasure chest. If approached, Chomp Chest will quickly reveal himself, initiating the battle. In the end, he is defeated, losing lots of treasure in the process, and is trapped afterwards.
Much like other voracious characters, Chomp Chest is never one to go hungry, although he prefers to devour treasure. Because of his endless appetite, he is rumored to be the Skylands Hot Dog-Eating Contest Champion. He is also one of the few villains who dislikes the Doom Raiders.
Chomp Chest can lunge forward and do a rapid biting attack, much like a Chompy. Also being a treasure chest, he stores large amounts of coins and gold, and can send a radar out to search for buried treasure and burrow underground to find it.
During his boss fight, he lunges at you twice before stopping to turn around. Hitting him with any attack causes him to drop money - so it is useful to use attacks that do little damage to "milk" him for money.

- Chomp Chest most closely resembles a Mimic, a very old Dungeons and Dragons monster existing since the first edition (1977) that pretends to look like a treasure chest. Mimics or creatures similar to them can be found commonly in many computer games such as the Final Fantasy series, Terraria, Castlevania, Darks Souls or Chrono Trigger.
- Chomp Chest gives out money when attacked. The amount of money he gives out will be equal to the amount of damage the attack dealt.
