Tiki Pop as seen in the games.

Tiki Pops are enemies found in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are throw by the Ruins level boss, Stu, during the second phase. Tiki Pops only show up in Ruins level Ruined Roost. They are merely tikis with mines in their heads. They follow Donkey and Diddy Kong, being capable of jumping over pillars, and attempt to blow up the Kongs. However, they sacrifice themselves in the process.


Tiki Pops have a head that looks like a bowl with a mine inside. They also have a carved look in their bowl, which is used to look intriguing and stylish. They have three slots at the bottom of their heads, and also have two semicircles use for slits for their eyes. Their eyes are a beige color, like most tikis. They have leaf-like structures underneath their heads, which supposedly have legs.



  • In-game, the Tiki Pops appear to have some sort of mine inside their head, while in the official artwork, it is a regular bomb (see Gallery section above).
