Tiki Goons are enemies that first appeared in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are the most common and weakest foot soldiers of the Tiki Tak Tribe, and are basically the equivalent of Goombas from the Mario series. They can be found almost anywhere on Donkey Kong Island.
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Donkey Kong Country Returns marked the first appearance of the Tiki Goons where they acted as nothing more then simple foot soldiers and were the most widespread of the Tiki Tak Tribe's soldiers.
Mario Kart 7
Tiki Goons reappear again in Mario Kart 7 as obstacles on DK Jungle in the Special Cup.
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Tiki Goons reappear in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D in the same behavior as they do in Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Mario Kart 8
Tiki Goons reappear in Mario Kart 8 as obstacles on the retro course DK Jungle in the Banana Cup. Also, a stamp based on this is unlocked when a player beats a staff ghost on DK Jungle.
Tiki Goons resemble bongo drums that have come to life. They are brown in color, and have large circles for eyes, that always seem to be closed. They have rectangular holes between their eyes that serve as noses, and they have sharp, triangular teeth. Feathers hang off each side of their heads as well, which probably only serve as decoration.
Tiki Goons don't really have any attacks. All they do is walk back and forth . If they do hit a kong, then that drains one heart from them. If they are hit on the head, however, then they will die and no harm will come to Donkey Kong.
