The Biplane Barrel is a barrel in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2 that allows Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong to travel to over worlds they have already been to. It replaces Funky Barrel from Donkey Kong Country. In the GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 2, it is replaced by the Gyrocopter. It also appears in DK Jungle Climber.
As with the Funky Barrel, it is the only means of accessing the overworld map without having to defeat a boss, and makes traveling to worlds and levels faster, and features Funky's theme with doing so.
In DK Jungle Climber, when the Kongs have collected all Oil Barrels on an island and bring them to Funky Kong. He'll use them in to fuel his Biplane Barrel (called Funky's Airplane). Biplane Barrel can take the Kongs to a little version of the island they're on.
- Funky's Biplane Barrel has a reference to the Royal Air Force via the symbol and circular paint job, implying that Funky represents and was part of the Royal Air Force.
