Barrels contain items and change visually depending on the thematics of the stages they appear on, such as being wrapped like a present, or having a futuristic look. They share many similarities to Crates. They are heavy and cause the carrier to walk slowly. Anyone carrying it is unable to attack, and unable to jump. When thrown, they will roll on the ground and burst upon contact with a wall, character, or object.
