The Rocket Barrel is a type of barrel vehicle used by the Kongs as means of transportation through levels in the games of the Donkey Kong Country series.

History

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

The Rocket Barrel is first found in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!, in the level Rocket Rush. It is a barrel that can fly throughout the air to help Dixie and Kiddy Kong to progress. Fuel Barrels kept the rocket flying and the Ignition Barrel ignites the main engine of Rocket Barrel.

Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

In Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, the Rocket Barrel's function is slightly different. It is used only in a few levels. If the player is hit once, he/she will lose an extra life, similar to mine carts. Rocket Barrels appear in the following levels: Peaceful Pier (Beach), Mole Patrol (Cave), Crowded Cavern (Cave), Gear Getaway (Factory), Lift-off Launch (Factory), Hot Rocket (Volcano), and the beginning of final boss level, Tiki Tong Terror (Volcano).

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

The Rocket Barrel acts in the same way in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze as it did in Returns. However, players can sustain two hits before losing an extra life. Rocket Barrels appear in the following levels: Rodent Ruckus (Autumn Heights), Twilight Terror (Bright Savannah), Reckless Ride (Juicy Jungle), Blurry Flurry (Donkey Kong Island) and Rocket Rails (Secret Seclusion).
