A Ghost Barrel is a type of Barrel Cannon introduced in Donkey Kong Country 3, and it reprises in Donkey Kong Land III. In Donkey Kong Country 3 it only appears in one level: Creepy Caverns. It appears slightly more often in Donkey Kong Land III, as it appears in three levels: Stalagmite Frights, Haunted Hollows, and Ghoulish Grotto.

A Ghost Barrel moderately has a Barrel Cannon's role except it constantly vanishes and reappears, hence its name. Some Ghost Barrels position themselves in a different direction each time they materialize; this may cause that Ghost Barrel to fire Dixie and/or Kiddy into an enemy or a wall.
