Flaming Tiki Buzzes[1] are enemies that are featured in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are very similar in appearance to normal Tiki Buzzes, except that they are covered in flames. Like Tiki Buzzes, they are wooden, drum-shaped Tikis with large, yellow noses, wings, and eyes carved into them. They also have dark tail feathers, and, as mentioned before, are on fire. Due to their fiery appearance, they are common in the levels of the Volcano world.

They act in a similar way to Tiki Buzzes, being able to fly up and down above gaps and other obstacles. However, unlike the latter, they cannot be jumped on because of their hot flames; any Kong that touches them takes damage and loses a heart. Although jumping normally doesn't hurt them, barrels that are thrown at them can defeat them. Additionally, the Kongs can put out their flames by blowing at them; this will make the Flaming Tiki Buzz temporarily vulnerable to jumps. Tiki Tong attacks with Flaming Tiki Buzzes during the second phase of his battle.
