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.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

A Tiki Buzz makes an appearance as a collectible trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. The Tiki Buzzs' also make an appearance in the Smash Run mode for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Like in Donkey Kong Country Returns, jumping on them allows for characters to reach high places.

Trophy Description from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Name NTSC-U Description PAL Description
Tiki Buzz This member of the Tiki Tak Tribe appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It'd be really tempting to see what kind of sound that drum-shaped head of his would make. In Smash Run, they do a dive-bomb attack if a fighter passes below. You can bounce off their heads to boost your own jump! A drum-shaped, bird-like creature from the Tiki Tak Tribe. In Smash Run, they float around in the air, and if they end up above you, they'll suddenly drop down, right on your head. Jump on them instead, though, and you can bounce off and go flying through the air. So think twice before you tell these guys to buzz off!



  • Tiki Buzzs' behave similarly to the Necky enemies from Donkey Kong Country. Like those birds, these Tikis sometimes act as platforms and they can fly back and forth.
