"A free buffet? How kind! Don't mind if I do!"
Chomper is useful for instantly clearing weaker but nonetheless dangerous zombies such as Zombie King and Team Mascot. However, its low stats make it bad for combat, so boosting tricks are not really recommended. In fact, it is just like Whack-a-Zombie that costs 1 more sun and can actually fight.
But because of that, this allows Chomper to remove most zombies up to turn 4, should they not be boosted by the likes of Vitamin Z. The only exceptions to this rule up to this point (by default) are Firefighter, Exploding Imp, and Cuckoo Zombie. As Chompzilla, you can use Fertilize to get the most out of Chomper, as it can easily get you at least 5 damage off with nothing to specifically to stop you immediately apart from some cards. You can Bounce it with Rescue Radish to replay this if you are playing as Rose.
However, Chomper's usefulness diminishes quickly in the late-game, when there are many powerful zombies that Chomper cannot handle, like Deep Sea Gargantuar or Knight of the Living Dead. Therefore, you should play it as soon as you see a weaker threat. Chomper also cannot destroy a zombie on an aquatic lane, so using this against Amphibious zombies is a bad idea.
There is no real counter to Chomper's ability aside from having zombies with 4 or more strength. Set up a backup plan in case it destroys one of your key zombies. The good thing, however, is that Chomper is terrible at combat due to its low stats, so after its ability activates, you can destroy it easily.
