Fireballs[1] are enemies in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are a variant of Tiki Zings drenched in fire. Fireballs appear only in the Cliff level, Precarious Plateau. Even though Rambi is able to defeat Tiki Zings, he cannot defeat fireballs. If one of the Kongs make contact with these enemies, they will lose a life immediately. They have seven razor blades and a sinister face. Like their Tiki Zing relatives, fireballs move around, trying to block Donkey Kong's path.
