First appearance Donkey Kong Land (1995)

Buttons are large, dome-shaped objects which appear sporadically in Donkey Kong Land. Most of the time, they are limited to Bonus Areas, where pressing them causes one of the player's Kong Tokens to shoot from a rapidly moving and rotating Barrel Cannon, with collecting it granting an extra life. The button can be pushed for this effect until the player runs out of Kong Tokens. The only stage featuring buttons in the main level is Button Barrel Blast, where they cause specific Blast Barrels known as Button Barrels to turn 1/8th of a full rotation per push.
