Tiki Goons are enemies first appearing in the game Donkey Kong Country Returns. They first appear in the Jungle area. They are wooden, bongo-shaped enemies. Tiki Goons have a cloth on their head and a square hole for a nose. They have yellow pupils and black sclera. Tiki Goons have a yellow, orange, brown, and red skirt and also have four red feathers on each side of their head. Tiki Goons attack just by moving to the sides at a slow pace. They can be defeated with a roll, a jump, a barrel, or with Rambi.

Tiki Goons make another appearance in Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as obstacles in DK Jungle. Also, an unlockable stamp in Mario Kart 8 shows the Tiki Goon on it.


  • Tiki Goons act in a similar way to Goombas in the Mario series. Like Goombas, they will try to walk into the Kongs to hurt them but Tiki Goons can also be defeated with any attack from the Kongs.
