A group of Tiki Buzzes in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Tiki Buzzes[1] are enemies first appearing in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are drum shaped tikis with carved owl-like eyes and a yellow, wooden beak. They have red wooden wings and brown tail feathers. Tiki Buzzes also have three strings with beads attached to them. These enemies fly in an upward and downward pattern and serve as common obstacles in minecart levels. These enemies can be used to reach extra heights and serve as enemies to get good aerial gain from. Tiki Buzzes can be defeated with a jump, a roll, by Rambi, or with a barrel.

Tiki Buzzes also appear as one of the Smash Run enemies in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Like in Donkey Kong Country Returns, they can be easily defeated by simply jumping on them.

Trophy information from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Tiki Buzz Tiki Buzz Trophy.png This member of the Tiki Tak Tribe appears in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It'd be really tempting to see what kind of sound that drum-shaped head of his would make. In Smash Run, they do a dive-bomb attack if a fighter passes below. You can bounce off their heads to boost your own jump! A drum-shaped, bird-like creature from the Tiki Tak Tribe. In Smash Run, they float around in the air, and if they end up above you, they'll suddenly drop down, right on your head. Jump on them instead, though, and you can bounce off and go flying through the air. So think twice before you tell these guys to buzz off!
