Games Donkey Kong Country Returns
The Tiki Tak Tribe is an evil hive mind of Tikis lead by Tiki Tong and the main antagonists in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Their behavior and motivation are similar to insects such as bees. 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, or Donkey Kong's case, too stupid) and turn them into their slaves with a musical tune. Each of leader of the group 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 Banana Hoard.

The Tikis used to live contemporary with the ancient Kongs on Donkey Kong Island.

The Tiki Tak Tribe are a very mysterious group that their origins as well as their motivations for some time are never made clear. However, 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 members are quite large, as most of them are roughly the same size as Donkey Kong and/or Diddy Kong.
