On & Off Barrels are a unique type of barrel encountered exclusively in the stage Loopy Lights of Chimp Caverns in Donkey Kong Country.


In this stage, the lights will frequently turn off and most of the screen will be black, making the player unable to see most things. Coupled with moving platforms and abysses, being able to maneuver fast enough while the lights are on is essential to beating the stage. These barrels will cause the lights to turn back on temporarily, to which they will display "ON"; likewise when the lights turn off they will display "OFF".
