The Animal Barrel, also known as the Goodie Barrel in the Official Donkey Kong Country 3 Strategy Guide, is a Barrel that transforms the Kongs into an Animal Buddy. There is a variety of Animal Barrels, such as a Rambi Barrel or Squawks Barrel. The Kongs transform into a certain Animal Buddy based on which one is depicted on the Animal Barrel.

In Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III, the Kongs can only transform into Animal Buddies from the Animal Barrels rather than ride on them.

Animal Crates serve as the successors to Animal Barrels in Donkey Kong 64 and later the Game Boy Color remake of Donkey Kong Country.

List of Animal Barrels[edit]



  • In Donkey Kong Country 2, when turned into an Animal Buddy from an Animal Barrel, the player cannot switch between players when playing co-operative mode, not even if the player is hit.
