Ghost Barrels are types of Barrel Cannon introduced in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and return in Donkey Kong Land III. Ghost barrels in Donkey Kong Country 3 were very rare and only featured in one stage, Creepy Caverns of KAOS Kore. They appear much more common in Donkey Kong Land 3 as they are featured in every cave stage.
Ghost Barrels act somewhat like barrel cannons but with a twist; per the "ghost" name, Ghost Barrels tend to reappear and disappear suddenly during a stage. Ghost barrels always return and disappear in the same spot, though with every reappearance they aim a different direction. This makes them very tricky because their patterns are quick and a misfire often leads directly into an enemy (usually Buzz) or a wall.
