Tiki Torches are bongo-shaped tiki enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Their main attribute is how they are constantly shrouded in flames. Tiki Torches have a variant, Tiki Bombers.

Like other Tikis, Tiki Torches are made from wood. They bear a resemblance to Tiki Dooms but at a smaller size. They are completely dark brown and have hollow eyes with no pupils.

Like many other enemies, Tiki Torches move slowly in a side to side manner. Tiki Torches are mostly invulnerable due to their flames, even from Rambi. Donkey Kong can only defeat a Tiki Torch by blowing out its flames, leaving the enemy temporarily open to either a jump or roll attack. After a while, the Tiki Torch regains its flames.
