Tikis are a race of wooden creatures that were sealed inside the Donkey Kong Island magma. They are the primary antagonists in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Most of the Tikis resemble floating wooden masks with some resembling various musical instruments and many are adorned with colored feathers. They are also known to use fire as a weapon. As seen in Factory, the Tiki army were created with banana cream from hoard incorporated into its body for Colonel Pluck (controlled by Accordion Tiki). After Tiki Tong's destruction, most Tikis were destroyed but some survived like Tiki Seekers in Golden Temple.

  • Traditionally, Tikis are associated with Polynesian culture, however the Tikis seems to draw more influence from African tribal culture instead. This is because of the patterns and vibrant colors each Tiki has.
