Tiki Zings[1] are enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and members of the Tiki Tak Tribe.

Tiki Zings are wooden, circular enemies with an angry expression on their face. They have seven, sharp wood blades attached to their exterior. Tiki Zings often appear in groups and can only be defeated with Rambi. Otherwise, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must avoid these enemies by jumping over or ducking beneath them. Tiki Zings most often appear in areas requiring both timed jumps and timed blasts out from Barrel Cannons.

Tiki Zings have three variants, Big Zings (a larger variant of them), Tiki Zing (an identically named variant appearing in Factory) and fireballs (Tiki Zings who are engulfed in flames).
