Kalda Chom


Tough-skinned, large creatures that dwell in the craters on the surface of Moon Mountain Pass
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 15


Kalda Choms rotate in their craters and fire noxious projectiles at Fox.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 15


Open with a Ground Quake to start them spinning, then attack the oval-shaped portion of flesh on their backs when they come around. Only a direct hit will damage the bloated fiends, while a miss allows them to regain their composure. It takes two hits to finish them.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 15


Fox is not invulnerable while he performs his Ground Quake assault, and as it takes a few seconds to finish the move, he may sustain some damage while in mid-swing.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 15

Lifestyle and Habits

They dwell in fallen star-like crater pits, awaiting unsuspecting prey to ambush as they pass by. The crab claw hands can produce offensive energy orbs as a range attack, with fierce snapping action for close combat. Krystal's Staff cannot harm them unless Fox McCloud performs the Ground Quake to daze them into a spinning frenzy, leaving them vulnerable for Fox to strike their one weak point at the back. Defeating Kalda Choms will reward Fox with a MoonSeed.


  • Slaying a Kalda Chom is the only way of getting MoonSeeds, as they are not for sale at the ThornTail Store.
  • Unlike most species on Dinosaur Planet, Kalda Chom appears to be incapable of speech.
  • There are 13 Kalda Chom craters throughout Moon Mountain Pass. After slaying one, Fox can walk onto the pit without falling into it.
    • The Kalda Chom tribe will not reveal themselves until the Krazoa God appears when he makes his plea to Fox to collect the Krazoa Spirits.
