Since the game Donkey Kong, the common barrels is served as projectile to be thrown at someone. Usually the users to thrown these barrels are the Kongs. Besides them, the Kremlings are also users of these objects, for example: K. Rool, Kannon and Bazuka used these barrels as uncommon firearm ammunition.
