MK7 Screaming Pillars

Yoshi about to take to the skies to get blown...

Screaming Pillars are tiki totems made of stone from Donkey Kong Country Returns and its 3DS remake. They attack by screaming and falling on Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong in attempt to crush them.

In the Mario Kart series, Screaming Pillars have appeared in the first version DK Jungle for Mario Kart 7. They try to blow into other players to knock them off course with their screams. If you see a shaking Screaming Pillar, stay as far away as possible from its mouth, or you'll be blown ferociously.
