Cordian is a leading member of the Tiki Tak Tribe, who appears in the Factory world of the Donkey Kong Island in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It hypnotizes and possesses Colonel Pluck, the seventh boss in both games.


Cordian appears in the boss level, Feather Fiend of the Factory, hypnotizing Colonel Pluck into making the Stompybot 3000 to squash bananas, which power up the Tiki minions. When Donkey Kong and/or Diddy Kong appear, they are forced to battle Pluck. When he is defeated, Cordian rises up and Donkey Kong sends the tiki flying away. Later, it is seen with the rest of the hypnotic tikis by becoming part of one of Tiki Tong's hands.

Physical Appearance

Cordian is an accordion-like being that has a malicious, yet angry smile. It also has a skirt-like structure on under its face. It has long limbs, ending with three fingers, like Krazy Kalimba, Banjo Bottom, and Wacky Pipes. It also has a headdres-like structure that is apart of its accordion-like stature. It has four rhombuses on its bellows. It has peach and purple stripes protruding from top to bottom on its bellows as well. Cordian also has purple and red eyelashes, along with three dialect stripes for its eyes. Its mouth is sharp and has an actual jaw. At the top of its head, the tiki has a multiple colored leaf, starting with red to yellow. It also has multiple marks on its face, a few are yellow, and some are a light red.



  • Accordions are a a German Instrument that are bellow-driven.
  • Cordian's tune is Krazy Kalimba's base tune with an accordion playing in the background in the same fashion of Kalimba's tune.
  • Cordian has the longest arms of any tiki leader.
  • Cordian is the second biggest tiki, compared to Banjo Bottom at full length. The tiki exceeds Wacky Pipes by almost twice its size.
  • Cordian is the most "artificial" tiki, judging by how it resembles the Tiki Seeker in jaw pattern.
  • Cordian looks like the most damaged tiki, showing multiple signs of decayed paint at the end of its bellows and its skirt structure. Krazy Kalimba is a close second to this backdrop.
