Mimics are bush-type enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. They are silhouettes with yellow eyes and small legs. Their name comes from the fact that they mimic other bushes, disguising themselves. In addition, they will chase Donkey Kong and/or Diddy Kong and hurt them on contact. In Donkey Kong Country Returns, Mimics appear in Sunset Shore and Foggy Fumes, where in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, they only appear in Busted Bayou.
- It is unknown if Mimics are Tikis or not; although they do share the yellow eyes of the Tiki Tak Tribe, a possible sign that they are Tikis.
