Tikis are a mystic race that inhabit the Donkey Kong Island magma. They appeared in the Donkey Kong Country Returns as primary antagonistic race.


All Tikis are made of wood. They are all made of musical instruments, as: drums, kalimba, maracas, gongs, flutes, xylophones and accordions. Some of them have clothes like: skirt, feathers and rocks. Most of them have firepower.


Not much is known about the Tikis. But several pillars, statues and wooden totems covered the island show that the Tikis were the dominant species before the Kongs.
