A Chain Chomp's best friend
|First appears||DROD 5.0|
|Is brain visible||Head: no, chain: yes|
This is essentially a serpent that can move in eight directions. It is invincible and you are not required to destroy it to clear the room. As has been pointed out, the chain this hungry chomper is attached to acts as an obstacle to creatures, like the roaches in this scene. You can pin down the chain by closing doors on it, and you can attack across the chain to smite the roaches with your sword. Your sword can block the gentryii from reaching you, so you can manipulate the gentryii to follow roundabout paths if you're careful.
