A Crate, as seen in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
The Crate item was first introduced in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They take on the appearance of generic boxes and can be found all over Crocodile Isle. When thrown, they will instantly break upon contact with the floor or an enemy. One single crate would make a return in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! in the level Barrel Drop Bounce.
