After the eruption of Donkey Kong Island's volcano, Wacky Pipes and his brethren were freed from their imprisonment and proceeded to steal all the island's bananas for their evil plot, including Donkey Kong's precious Banana Hoard. Once they succeeded, Wacky Pipes proceeded to take over the Forest region of the island and quickly gained control of the local wildlife. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong eventually made their way through the forest to the tiki after beating the Jungle, Beach, Ruins, and Cave areas which was controlled by his siblings, Kalimba, the Maraca Gang, Gong-Oh, and Banjo Bottom.
Upon reaching the tiki's lair, He possessed Mangoruby in order to stop the Kongs. Despite His best efforts, Mangoruby was defeated by them, thus freeing the forest of the tiki's control, before DK sent Wacky Pipes flying.
The evil tiki later appeared during the final boss fight with His other eight siblings transforming into one of Tiki Tong's hands, which was used to fight the two apes. He was destroyed during battle, however.
