The Maraca Gang are leading members of the Tiki Tak Tribe who first appear in the boss level Pinchin' Pirates in the Beach where they hypnotize the Scurvy Crew to attack Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. However, the crew of crabs are defeated and DK punches out the three.

They later appear in the final boss battle and help Tiki Tong by turning into hands for it.

The Maraca Gang's tune is a combination of Kalimba's tune and a couple of maraca sounds.


The left maraca is colored green with small eyes; the right maraca is colored purple with big eyes; the middle maraca is colored red with one small eye and one big eye. The maraca in the middle is short, and has the angriest expression out of its comrades. It also has some head decor on its forehead. It also has a unique mouth as well. One thing that also stands out is the design on its body, looking balanced yet distorted. The one on the left has a very mundane design on its body, along with what appears to be a sun colored icon on its head. It also has green leaves on its head and has the biggest mouth of the three tikis. As for the right maraca, it has purple leaves designed to be hair, along with a mysterious jewel on its forehead. It also has a wavy design on its body. It has a small mouth as well.
