He was voiced by Ian Loma.
Just like his minions, Tiki Tong was awakened in his slumber by a volcanic eruption. From there on, the Tiki Lord sent his underlings to harvest some bananas. From there on, Tiki Tong was not seen until the end climax of the game. He was confronted by the Kongs in his volcanic lair and used his newly formed hands to stop Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. After a long battle, good prevailed over Panflute's evil. The Misled Tiki Lord was defeated for good and exploded into a burst of light, thus removing the evil curse from the animals.
When Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong invade Tiki Tong's lair, all of the nine boss Tikis come and throw the remaining bananas in Tiki Tong's head. It then turns the bananas into juice by spinning around, and then spitting it on the Tikis. This action transforms its minions into hands so that he can take care of the two once and for all. Tiki Tong's death launches them into space. While there, the Kong's knock the moon down to earth, which crushes the Tiki base inside the volcano. This releases the bananas, which sends them and the moon flying out of the volcano. With the statue destroyed, the effects of the hypnosis on the creatures of the island are undone. Donkey and Diddy are able to land before they crash onto the island, and cheer as their bananas continue to rain from the volcano.
Tiki Tong is shown to be extremely manipulative, untrustworthy, and totalitarian. He is the uncaring, sarcastic, traitorous, destructive, contemptuous, and opprobrious chief of the Tiki Tak Tribe who has stronger powers than those of his Tiki underlings. He is also extremely calculating and oppressive, so he supposedly tries to harvest all of the bananas from around DK Island and use them to create an army of tikis.
Tiki Tong is depicted as a large floating tiki head with a pair of large hands (which was seen during the cutscene before the final battle). He has two sets of three feather clusters for hair, two black eyes with glowing red pupils, and a slightly unhinged jagged mouth.
