Barrel Shield

Artwork of a Barrel Shield from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.

Barrel Shields are hollowed out Barrels that have been cut in half. They are found exclusively in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. Barrel Shields are found in hollow-tree stage first appearing in Kremwood Forest's stage, Barrel Shield Bust-Up.

These shields were the best defense against Minkey's projectiles. In fact, there are a few areas that are impossible to pass without being in the way of their projectiles; only the barrel shield can protect Dixie/Kiddy. By climbing behind the Barrel Shield, they will be shielded. If they do not face behind the barrel and instead go in front, they will be open for attack. Few barrel shields move, but most are stationary.
