Barrels are a gorilla's best friend!

One more Nintendo tribute to share with you folks.

In Un'Goro Crater, as well as Sholazar Basin now, the gorilla mobs there occasionally drop "barrels" when they are killed. This is a reference to another Nintendo classic character, Donkey Kong, a gorilla who goes around using barrels either as modes of transportation, weapons, etc...

These items are considered "junk" in game, though I really wish we were able to throw these barrels ourselves...

...OR it would've been cool if hunter pet gorillas had "Throw Barrels" as a unique species ability. Yeah "Thunderstomp" is all well and good, but c'mon! You know as well as I do that you'd totally trade that for the ability to lob a big wooden barrel at your opponent.
