A Switch Barrel is a type of barrel found in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! in the levels "Blazing Bazukas", "Koindozer Klamber", and "Criss Cross Cliffs". Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong use these in order to change the type of barrel being firing by the enemy Bazuka.
The switch barrel was needed in three levels, both with varying situations; in Blazing Bazukas, the Bazukas usually fire TNT Barrels, however via switch barrel they can be changed to Steel Kegs, which can be jumped on to travel a distance. In Criss Cross Cliffs, a similar thing applies except the Bazuka is firing up and the steel kegs must be bounced on upwards. Also, the TNT can be used to kill a red Buzz guarding the way up. In Koindozer Klamber, the Bazuka fires normal Barrels, via switch barrel they can be changed to Steel Kegs, these Steel Kegs can be used to kill Koin.
