The Funky Barrel, also known as the Jumbo Barrel, is a special type of Barrel shaped like an airplane, and it appears in Donkey Kong Country. This barrel allows Donkey and Diddy to travel to other worlds and levels, albeit ones they have already visited.
The Funky Barrel is accessible at Funky's Flights. There, Funky introduces himself and explains the purpose of his barrel. This barrel is the only means of accessing the main overworld map, aside from defeating a boss.
In the Game Boy Advance version, the Funky Barrel can used at any time on the world map if Funky is met at Funky's Flights (the barrel is still available at Funky's Flights). His theme was also changed in this version.
