Tiki Buzzes are common enemies appearing in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are found most often in mine cart levels, such as Crazy Cart, but can be found in other places too. These enemies can fly, and they are like the flying equivalent of Tiki Goons.
Tiki Buzzes look a lot like Tiki Goons, and have much of the same features. They are shaped to resemble bongo drums, and they have the same basic form as them. Instead of the feathers that hang off the sides of Tiki Goons, this species has red wooden wings that enable them to fly. They also have beaks, that make them look kind of like birds. There are three beads hanging down from their bodies that appear to be connected by string.
Their overall appearance makes them look dangerous, but minor. They are about the size of Diddy Kong, and their eyes make them look very angry.
Tiki Buzzes only have one mode of attacking, which is flying up and down and hoping something runs into them. It is not very complicated, and usually not very effective. They can be defeated simply by jumping on top of them, and they are often used as boosts upwards while in mine carts.
If in a mine cart, one hit from them will destroy the entire cart, causing the player to have to start over at the last checkpoint. This is the only reason they are dangerous.
- Tiki Buzzs' behave similar to the Necky enemies from Donkey Kong Country. Like those birds, these tikis sometimes act as platforms and they can fly back and forth.
