Tiki Zings are circular saw enemies found in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They fly at specific patterns and are invulnerable against all physical attacks by the Kongs.


Tiki Zings appear in all worlds of the Donkey Kong Island, except for Beach and Cave. Tiki Zings appear in big or small sizes. They are most commonly seen on the levels with barrel cannons. Some move up and down, others in a circle and some just spin. They can only be defeated by the primates throwing a barrel at them or by Rambi the Rhinoceros' attacks.

Tiki Zings also possess flaming counterparts called Flaming Tiki Zings. They are more rare and immune even against the attacks of Rambi.

Physical Appearance[]

Tiki Zings are round and made out of wood, surrounded with sharp edges resembling tiny lightning bolts. They have a rather angry expression on their faces, even without having any visual eyes showing. They have two darkened slits meant to act as eyes. They also have creases on their “heads”, which look like a triangle.
