Kalimba (or Krazy Kalimba) is one of the secondary antagonists of Donkey Kong Country Returns and its 3DS remake. He is a Tiki that who hypnotized the game's first boss Mugly.
Kalimba is one of the more notable members of the Tiki Tak Tribe, as he was the one who first tried to hypnotize Donkey Kong to do his bidding, only to discover he was immune to his hypnotic tunes. This led Kalimba to get beaten up by DK, who sent him flying out of the Kong's own treehouse. Kalimba later appears in World 1-B: Mugly's Mound, where he hypnotizes Mugly into attacking Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. He than go's inside of Mugly (Somehow) to take full control of him. However, Mugly is soon defeated and Kalimba comes out of him all drizzy and vulnerable. He is sent flying yet again. Despite his defeat, He would not be the last Donkey and Diddy would see of him. Kalimba is later seen with all the other Tiki leaders inside Tiki Tong's tower, where they are transformed into a pair hands for the games final boss, Tiki Tong. Kalimba soon meant his fate after DK destroyed one Tiki Tong's hands.
