Flaming Tiki Zings are circular saw enemies on fire from the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are flying tiki enemies that are invincible against all attacks.


Flaming Tiki Zings are flaming variants of regular Tiki Zings and only appear in the Cliff level Precarious Plateau. There are only three in the level. Since they are incased in fire, they can damage Rambi the Rhinoceros, causing him to run away in panic, and harming the Kongs at the same time. They spin in a circle consisting of generally two of them parallel at all times, while the rest of the spaces are lined with bananas. They take away one heart if touched, and cannot be killed by any means. Unlike their counterparts, Tiki Zings, they cannot be defeated by Rambi, and will instead cause Donkey and/or Diddy Kong to fall off the Animal Buddy, and cause him to run away. It is impossible to extinguish their flames by blowing.

Physical Appearance[]

Flaming Tiki Zings are encased in flames, while also showing the same angry expression as the Tiki Zing. They leave small, visual flaming decals wherever they go.
