The Biplane Barrel is a barrel in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2 that allows Diddy and Dixie Kong to travel to over worlds they have already been to. It replaces the Funky Barrel from Donkey Kong Country. In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 2, it is replaced by the Gyrocopter. The Biplane Barrel 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 Kong's theme song with doing so.
In DK Jungle Climber, when the Kongs have collected all of Oil Barrels on an island and bring them to Funky Kong, he will use them in to fuel his Biplane Barrel (called Funky's Airplane). The Biplane Barrel can take the Kongs to a little version of the island they are current on, an extra level.
- Funky's Biplane Barrel has a reference to the Royal Air Force via the symbol and circular paint job on its wings. It implies that Funky Kong was part of the Royal Air Force once.
