Tiki Tanks are tiki enemies found in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Initially, they cannot be jumped on, due to the fact that they wear armor, so Donkey and Diddy Kong must ground-pound near them in order to make its head spin upside down, revealing its weak point much like with Pinchlys. Donkey or Diddy Kong may also defeat them using Rambi the Rhinoceros and throwing barrels. They are seen spectating most of boss battles, alongside Tiki Goons and Tiki Torches.


The Tiki Tank has a rather castle shaped head, and also have wooden eyelids with arms that resemble bowling balls, coconuts or something like. They have tan skirts, which also match their eye color, which is common with most Tikis. Their face is brown, and show light from their eyes, which is a nice feature. Their hands end in leaves that look like they have decayed after a while. Their castle structure on top also looks like it has black dots on it, judging by how they could be smelted metal. Their drum looks rather small and thin compared to the rest of the Tiki Tak Tribe members.
