Flaming Tiki Buzzes are flying tiki enemies that appear in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are variants of Tiki Buzzes that are on fire.


Donkey and Diddy Kong can blow on them to extinguish the flames, and jump on them to kill them, but only if they are within blowing distance. They are commonly encountered on mine cart levels and should be avoided at all costs, as just one hit will defeat both Kongs. Rambi the Rhinoceros cannot defeat these enemies, as he is not immune to fire. However, Flaming Tiki Buzzes can, with good aim, be defeated by a barrel.



  • Despite the fact that Flaming Tiki Buzzes are variants of Tiki Buzzes, there are no flaming counterparts for Tiki Torks.
  • If there is a rare situation in which Donkey or Diddy Kong could blow a Flaming Tiki Buzz out for a moment and then roll into it in midair, even though it is not ignited when hit, its flame will return as it flies off-screen.
