Tiki Pops are bomb-like enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are Tikis who carry a naval mine-like bomb on their head, and they have yellow eyes and wear a red skirt-like clothing.

Tiki Pops appear in the boss level, Ruined Roost, where when Stu has received enough damage, he starts throwing them at Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. Tiki Pops follow the Kongs around, and they must avoid contact with Tiki Pops as this injures them. Tiki Pops also flash to indicate that they will soon detonate. If caught in the explosion, the Kongs lose a life.
