A Fuel Barrel is a rare barrel found only in Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It has served two different roles in each game.


Donkey Kong Country

In the original Donkey Kong Country, the fuel barrel was only found in one level late in the game, Tanked Up Trouble. The fuel barrel was an extremely important part of this level. It was needed to keep the transportation platform running so Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong can reach the end of a level.

The amount of fuel left in the platform was measured in five gauges that slowly went down. The amount of fuel restored depends on the number of small red circles in the fuel barrel collected; 1 red dot means one gauge filled, etc.

Donkey Kong Country 3

In Donkey Kong Country 3, the fuel barrel has been redesigned and is featured in the level Rocket Rush. Fuel barrels kept the Rocket Barrel flying so it would not plummet down and crash. The Rocket Barrel must be steered into it in order to get it.
