A Kannonball is a large, steel ball, first appearing in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and its pseudo-sequel, Donkey Kong Land 2.

During gameplay in the many stages of Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Land 2, either Diddy or Dixie can pick Kannonballs up and use them to attack even the strongest types of enemies, including Zingers. However, the main use of Kannonballs is to access hidden Bonus Stages. To find these special stages, the two Kongs must carry a Kannonball across the stage to a Kannon. If they throw the ball into a Kannon and walk into it, they will be blasted upwards into a Bonus Stage. Rarely, Kannonballs can be hidden in Treasure Chests, which must be broken to open.
