Tiki Bombers are tiki enemies found in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are similar to Tiki Torches, but they differ in that they only have two horns on each side, and burn a blue flame. Unlike Tiki Torches, they keep their mouth closed, and only open it to attack. However, like Tiki Torches, they have a pair of rather flimsy arms that are slightly disguised by its flames. They shoot fire by opening and closing their mouth. They shoot blue fireballs out on each side, which makes it difficult to blow out and put out their flame. Once that is done, they can be defeated by being jumped on or rolling into them. Tiki Bombers are present in Ruins and Volcano levels. In the Ruins level Temple Topple and Cloud level Spiky Surprise, there are rare variants of Tiki Bombers on high platforms which just drop fireballs regularly over enemies below. In Temple Topple, the only way to defeat them is by using Rambi the Rhinoceros to destroy their platforms. In Spiky Surprise, they must be avoided to all costs.


They have fairly blunt teeth, along with two long brown slits going up their heads. Their teeth are very uneven as well. They have two eyes which vary in size, along with their horns. Like most Tikis, they have dress-like structures near the bottom of their heads. Their white heads are also uneven.
