The Giant chinchompa is a Summoning familiar, introduced with the "Summoning 2" update on 31 March, 2008. It can be summoned by using the "summon" option in the right click menu of a Giant chinchompa pouch.


Giant chinchompa Pouch

A Giant chinchompa pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 84 spirit shards, a Blue charm and a Chinchompa in the player's inventory. Making the pouch earns 255.2 experience points. Using the pouch to summon a Giant chinchompa gains 2.5 Summoning experience points, and costs 1 Summoning point (the monster type is Ranged).

Explode scroll

An Explode scroll enables the use of the Explode special move for a Giant chinchompa. Using the pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates 10 scrolls and gives 2.9 Summoning experience.



Explode is the special move for the Giant chinchompa, which causes the Giant chinchompa to explode and damage nearby enemies like a regular chinchompa. It is activated with an Explode scroll, using 3 special move points and granting 2.9 Summoning experience.

This move can be useful in multicombat situations against several low level enemies.

On occasions, the Giant chinchompa will explode during combat without use of a scroll, damaging all targets nearby and disappearing permanently. This is extremely obnoxious and happens quite frequently. (1 of every 10 attacks)



  • "Half a pound of tuppenny rice..." (in the dialogue) is a reference to the British rhyme Pop Goes the Weasel
  • According to the dialogue your familiars can see your inventory, which is stored in a backpack carried on your back.
  • In theory, a player can get 99 summoning in one trip using only giant chinchompa pouches at level 35 at the Gu'tanoth obelisk. All the ingredients stack and, after creating the pouches, they can be immediately swapped with Bogrog to recover 70% of their shard content, reducing costs. This would require 50988 blue charms and as many chinchompas.
  • There was a glitch where the scroll could be activated continuously without breaks, attacking any monsters or players quickly up to 5 player or monsters , much like a Dragon Claw special attack. The glitch has since been fixed.
