Bucket Men, also known as Dust Men, are enemies in Donkey Kong on the Game Boy, first appearing in Stage 1-3 in the Big-City and later in Stage 3-5 on the Ship. They usually stand still pretending to be regular Bins but when Mario tries to grab them they will start moving. If Mario touches the side of a Dust Man he will lose a life, though they can be stood on fully harmlessly. Mario cannot pick up a Dust Man. Bucket Men return with their current name in Mario vs. Donkey Kong, first appearing in Levels 1-4 and 1-6 of the Mario Toy Company and later in Levels 6-2 and 6-6 of Twilight City. They act the same as they did previously. They can be destroyed by hitting them with a Hammer.

Looks just like a trash can!
It looks just like the item's trash can. However, when you get on top of it, it will suddenly show its face and legs and attack you. If you mistake it for a trash can and try to lift it up, it will attack you.
