The Rocketbarrel Boost is Diddy Kong's Up B move. The distance the Rocketbarrel Boost will cover depends on how much the player charges the jet pack. The player can change the direction that Diddy travels with the jetpack by tilting the control stick while the move is being charged. When used in the air with the foe right under the barrels it may serve as a meteor smash, spiking the foe while you recover to safe ground. If Diddy is attacked while using the Rocketbarrel Boost, the barrels will fly off and become a projectile. While it sometimes appears the barrels seek out other players, they really move randomly. If Diddy hits a ceiling, he takes about 9%.
Trophy Info: Rocketbarrel Pack
An item that looks like regular barrels but becomes a rocket-powered jet pack when Diddy
Kong straps them on his back. It's a convenient gadget to have when adventuring, but for whatever reason, Diddy also uses it when playing tennis and basketball. The moves he can pull off with the rocketbarrel pack are so cool that they're almost not fair. Almost.

- When playing as Diddy Kong on "low gravity" mode, charging his Rocketbarrel Boost in the air causes him to float up, as if the gravity was reversed. If you are attacked in mid air as Diddy Kong, and jump after the attack, and then use your Up and B, the same thing occurs.
