Collectibles and Secrets



  • In the SNES version of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, a hidden barrel cannon at the top of the screen can be found before Rambi's animal crate, however it will simply shoot the player back down if fired into (see Gallery section above). This suggests that it was intended to be a Warp Barrel, but the idea was scrapped and the barrel being left behind may have been an oversight. The barrel is not longer present in the same location of the GBA version.
