The Tall Idols are a type of Tiki Monsters that are similar to the Short Idols, both of which only appeared in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!.

Two types of tall Idols exist:

Fat Idols holding a marshmallow on a stick and trying to hit the Green Colosi with it to scare him away.
Thin Idol holding a sausage on a stick and has taken the Green Colosi hostage, trying to hit anyone that gets near. They were later able to breathe fire.
