- BarrelEdit

The - Barrel is almost identical to the + Barrel, except that it removes time before Kackle attacks you. Has a - sign on the Front.

Bonus BarrelEdit

The Bonus Barrel sends you to a bonus game when you jump into it. These barrels are usually hidden somewhere in the level, so you will have to look. It has a B button on the front.

X BarrelEdit

Halfway BarrelEdit

This barrel marks the halfway point of the level, and if you die, you can restart here. Has stars moving around the barrel.
