Warp Barrels are rare, uncommon barrels found in the Donkey Kong Country series, as well as in Donkey Kong Land 2 and Donkey Kong Land III. They are considerably useful if found, as they transport the Kongs through most of a level, and are very useful for speed-runs. Warp Barrels are often located in well-hidden or dangerous locations.

History

Donkey Kong Country

The warp area DK and Diddy are taken to upon entering a Warp Barrel in the Game Boy Advance re-release.

Warp Barrels first appear in Donkey Kong Country and are found in some of its early levels. Warp Barrels do not appear in many levels but are often found in difficult early levels, such as a well-known one in Stop & Go Station, found by walking through the door at the very start of the level.

In the Game Boy Advance version, more earlier levels feature Warp Barrels. Warp Barrels also now have a 'W' painted on them. Upon entering one, DK and Diddy are taken to an ice walkway featuring pictures of some levels flying in the background and a trail of Bananas spelling out "WARP".

Donkey Kong Land

While Donkey Kong Land does not have any true Warp Barrels, there are a few levels with some well-hidden alternate exits at the very start. These levels are Arctic Barrel Arsenal, Sky High Caper, and Skyscraper Caper.

Donkey Kong Country 2

Warp Barrels reappear in Donkey Kong Country's sequel, Donkey Kong Country 2. Instead of appearing in random early levels, a warp barrel can be found in every level of the first two worlds, Gangplank Galleon and Crocodile Cauldron. Warp Barrels were still very hard to find, and when they are found, Kongs are teleported to a secret room, with bananas in the shape of a "!", indicating the surprise of discovering the warp.

Donkey Kong Land 2

Warp Barrels also appear in Donkey Kong Land 2. Strangely, they are marked with the letter "B", just like regular bonus levels. This time, though, they are only found in the first world. Like in DKC2, warp barrels also teleport the Kongs to a secret room, although the bananas are no longer in a "!" formation.

Donkey Kong Country 3

Donkey Kong Country 3 marked the Warp Barrel's fourth appearance. As with DKC2, they appeared in the first two worlds exclusively, Lake Orangatanga and Kremwood Forest. The warp barrel would appear just in front of the level's end flag when used. Now warp barrels are marked with a "W".

Donkey Kong Land III

Warp Barrels have most recently appeared in Donkey Kong Land III, and like in Donkey Kong Country 3, they are marked with a "W". Like in Donkey Kong Land 2, Warp Barrels are only found in the first world, Cape Codswallop. Also, like in DKC2, DKL2 and the DKC GBA titles, but unlike Donkey Kong Country 3, Warp Barrels teleport the Kongs to secret rooms first, which the Kongs must walk through to teleport to the level exit.
