Cranky's Training Barrels are Barrels that made their debut and final appearance in Donkey Kong 64. They are found near Donkey Kong's Treehouse at the beginning of the game. As their name suggests, they are training barrels used to "train" Donkey Kong for Cranky Kong's potions. Donkey must complete all four Training Barrels in order to progress.
