Donkey Kong Island, also known as DK Island, is a place in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is the setting of the game. Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Cranky Kong can be found on this island during the game, however, no other Kong members can be found. Animal buddies found here include Rambi the Rhinoceros and Squawks the Parrot, though Squawks is sold as an item in Cranky Kong's Shop. The large island is made up of eight worlds + a ninth, bonus world; each world is under attack by a new group of main antagonists, the Tiki Tak Tribe, who hypnotize the animals that live on the island, forcing them to steal the Kongs' (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) Banana Hoard, as well as hypnotizing bosses to fight the heroes. However, much like the Kremling Krew found in previous Donkey Kong Country games, the Tiki Tak Tribe is soon defeated by the Kongs and forced off the island.
