Games Donkey Kong Country Returns
The Tiki Tak Tribe is an evil organization of Tikis lead by their leader, Tiki Tong. They were first introduced in Donkey Kong Country Returns. In the beginning of the game, the Tiki Tak Tribe were released by a volcanic eruption. They appear to have the ability to hypnotize animals (excluding the Kong Family, who are too smart to be hypnotized) and turn them into their slaves with a musical tune. Each of the major Tikis (Kalimba, Wacky Pipes, etc.) have the same melody for their tune, but with another instrument added to it (i.e. Wacky Pipes has a panflute in the melody). During the events of Donkey Kong Country Returns, they have stolen Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard.

The Tiki Tak Tribe are a very mysterious group. Their origins as well as their motivations are never made clear. While traveling through the seventh world, the Factory, it is discovered that they are created by putting mushed-up bananas into wooden containers. It is unknown if this is true for all of their kind or just the sub-species. They may have stolen Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard in order to mass-produce soldiers for an army needed to take over the world. Most of the members of the Tiki Tak Tribe look like musical instruments (mostly drums of some kind or another, though this is not the case for all of them). Many Tikis are quite large, as most of them are roughly the same size as Donkey Kong and/or Diddy Kong.

The main Tikis are (in order encountered): Kalimba, the Maraca Gang, Gong-Oh, Banjo Bottom, Wacky Pipes, Xylobone, Cordian and Tiki Tong.
